Oberlin junior linebacker Justin Bute (Antwerp, OH/Antwerp) was named to the D3football.com Team of the Week, the website announced on Tuesday (9/15) morning, after he spearheaded the Yeomen defense in a 28-24 league win over Kenyon last Saturday.
Bute registered a career-high 15 tackles (11 solo) in the four-point win. He also added a key a sack, which was one of 9.0 tackles-for-loss recorded by the Oberlin defense in the game.
He was one of just four linebackers from across the nation to earn the weekly honor.
Bute and the rest of his Yeomen teammates will be back in action this weekend when they travel to Granville to take on Denison at 7:00 p.m.
