Franklin College defensive back Zack Corpe (Granger, Ind./Elkhart Memorial) helped the Grizzlies defense post their third-straight shutout in a 56-0 win over Rose-Hulman Saturday and has been named the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Football Player of the Week on defense.
The junior hauled in three interceptions and broke up another pass, while adding five total tackles against the Engineers.
The blue and gold defensive unit now leads the HCAC in total defense following the victory.
Franklin (5-2, 5-0 HCAC) will look for its 24th straight HCAC win at Defiance Saturday.
