MINNEAPOLIS, MN – Franklin College’s Zack Corpe (Granger, Ind./Elkhart Central) earned national recognition this week and has been named to the D3football.com Team of the Week.  The freshman defensive back was one of 26 players in all of Division III to earn the honor.

The Grizzles defensive back led the blue and gold in a record-setting 69-10 win at Anderson, scoring two touchdowns and setting up another for Franklin.  Corpe returned a pair of interceptions for touchdowns (21 and 45 yards) and added six tackles, and two pass breakups.  On special teams, he forced and recovered a fumble on the Anderson 12 yard line that set up Franklin’s first touchdown.

Franklin (7-1, 6-0 HCAC) can clinch at least a share of the HCAC title with a win at home over Earlham Saturday afternoon.  Kickoff is slated for 1:30 PM.
