Rothe Named Defensive Player of the Week
ST. PAUL, Minn. - MLC linebacker Matt Rothe was named UMAC Defensive Player of the Week for his performance in MLC's 28-21 loss to Macalester Saturday.
Rothe finished the game with 20 tackles, including one tackle for loss. The total was the most for any MLC player in a single game this season, and helped MLC hold Macalester to just 3.0 yards per carry for the game.
