Zickafoose Heartland POTW
October 9, 2017
BLUFFTON, Ohio - Junior defensive end Isaac Zickafoose (Middlebury, Ind./Northridge) has been named the Heartland Conference Player of the Week for the second time this season after his otherworldly performance against Anderson University on Homecoming..
Zickafoose helped lead the Beavers to a 56-14 dismantling of Anderson on Homecoming Saturday. He tallied six solo tackles, a forced fumble, three sacks and four tackles-for-loss. His sacks set AU back 32 yards and he forced a fumble on the third sack, picked it up and returned it for a score midway through the third quarter.
The junior blocked a punt that Kay Boakye (Westerville/South) scooped up and ran back for a Bluffton touchdown late in the first half. He also scooted for 17 yards on a fake punt to keep the chains moving in the second quarter, and finished with a quarterback hurry and pass breakup. The Beaver defense allowed only 178 yards of offense with four total rushing yards.
The Bluffton University football team (2-3, 2-1 HCAC) will be back in action at Hanover on Saturday, Oct. 14, at 1:30 p.m.
