Fairfield, CT (October 7, 2013) – Sophomore linebacker Kellen Sperduto (Oldwick, NJ) has been named this week’s Sacred Heart Student-Athlete of the Week for his record breaking performance against Wagner over the weekend.
Sperduto racked up a school record 22 tackles in the Pioneers’ 23-20 loss to Wagner on Saturday afternoon. The sophomore was all over the field for the Pioneers, compiling 3.5 tackles for loss, a sack and 2 quarterback hurries. Sperduto leads the Pioneers this season with 56 tackles, which is 28 more than any other Sacred Heart defense. As a whole, the SHU defense ranks first nationally in rushing defense (78.8 yds/gm) and third in the country in total defense (270 yds/gm).
Sperduto and the Pioneers hope to rebound this Saturday when the Blue Devils of Central Connecticut State come to town.
