NEWPORT NEWS, VA —
Frostburg State junior Chris Lentz (Ashburn, Va./Broad Run)
has been named the Atlantic Central Football Conference Co-Defensive Player of the Week for his performance in a 22-0 win over Maryville last Saturday.
Lentz, a six-foot, 225-pound linebacker, made a game-high 14 tackles, including a 12-yard sack, to help spark FSU’s first shutout since a 13-0 blanking of New Jersey City October 28, 2000.
The Bobcats held Maryville to 150 total yards, including just 36 rushing yards on 40 attempts. The Scots entered the game ranked among the top rushing offenses in the nation at 216.7 yards per game.
Lentz’s 14 tackles were one shy of his career high set last season against Waynesburg.
He currently leads the Bobcats in total tackles (72) and sacks (3.5). He is also tied for second on the team with three pass breakups and ranks third with 8.0 tackles for loss.
Lentz shared the weekly honor with Buffalo State senior linebacker Perry Taglienti, who had 12 tackles and a blocked kick in a 30-19 league win over Apprentice.
Frostburg State (2-5) will host Westminster in its final home game of the year Saturday at 1:00 pm.
