Ryan Aelker, Bluffton University, Football (Defense)

Bluffton University defensive end Ryan Aelker (New Bavaria, Ohio/Holgate) led the Beavers defense in a 28-0 shutout win over Anderson and has been named the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Football Player of the Week on defense. 

The sophomore finished with four tackles, two sacks, three tackles for loss, and a quarterback hurry as the Bluffton defense limited Anderson’s offense to only 157 total yards and seven first downs. 

Bluffton (2-6, 2-4 HCAC) will welcome No 9 Franklin for a 1:30 PM kickoff Saturday.
