Austin College football player Matt Finke has been named to the D3Football.com National Team of the Week, it was announced today. Earlier this week Finke was honored as the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Week.
Finke, a senior from Denison, came up with several huge plays in a 17-14 win over Rhodes last weekend, blocking a field goal, recovering a fumble and intercepting two passes. Finke returned his second interception 12 yards for what would prove to be the game winning touchdown with just over six minutes left in the game. It was Finke’s third defensive touchdown of the season.
Austin College athletic teams participate as a member of the NCAA Division III and the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference.
