Defiance’s Sierra Named to D3football.com Team of the Week

GREENWOOD, IN - Defiance College's Anthony Sierra (Warren, Mich./Cousino) earned national recognition this week and has been named to the D3football.com Team of the Week.  The HCAC Player of the Week was one of 26 players all over Division III to earn the honor.

The Yellow Jackets freshman defensive back led DC to a 28-21 road win over Rose-Hulman with two interceptions and three tackles.  The freshman picked off a Rose-Hulman pass and ran it back 30 yards for the game-tying score in the fourth quarter, knotting the tally at 21-21.  The Warren, Michigan native added another interception and three tackles to go along with the game-tying score.  Defiance (2-4, 1-2 HCAC) travels to Anderson Saturday.
