Defensive back Jonny Volland earned Northwest Conference Football Defensive Student-Athlete of the Week honors after compiling seven tackles and two interceptions in Pacific Lutheran's season-opening loss to nationally ranked Cal Lutheran.
Volland (Auburn, Wash. / Thomas Jefferson HS) was a standout for the Lutes defense against a veteran Cal Lutheran team that came into the game ranked No. 11 in the d3football.com national poll. Volland's first interception, which came in the second quarter, led to what at the time was a game-tying touchdown for the Lutes. The Kingsmen won the opener, 37-23, last Saturday at Sparks Stadium.
The Lutes are back in action at 7 p.m. Saturday when they face the host University of Redlands Bulldogs at Ted Runner Stadium in Redlands, Calif.
