TERRE HAUTE, IN - Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology junior linebacker Matt Green (Cincinnati, Ohio/ LaSalle) has been named to the D3football.com National Team of the Week for his efforts in Saturday's win over Kalamazoo College.

Green recorded two interceptions and a key fumble recovery to propel the Fightin' Engineers to their 41-17 victory over the Hornets.

Green helped halt Kalamazoo's first drive of the game at the one-yard line, when he recovered a fumble along the back of the endzone to result in a touchback and stop a potential scoring drive.

Later in the contest, Green added one interception that stopped another potential drive, then snagged an interception that set up a score for Rose-Hulman.

On the day, Green recorded seven tackles and one sack, in addition to playing his role in the three turnovers.

The d3football.com National Team of the Week includes nominations from sports information offices around the country and are chosen by staff members for the website.  The team includes one player per position on the field per week.

Rose-Hulman stands 1-1 on the season and returns to action at Hanover College on Saturday.
