Dylan Peterson Earns Weekly Awards from the NACC and D3football.com
Junior defensive back Dylan Peterson (Reynolds, Ill.) earned not one but two weekly awards on Tuesday morning for his outstanding performance on the field last Saturday. Peterson was voted the Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference Football Defensive Student-Athlete of the Week, and selected as one of the two safeties on the D3football.com Team of the Week. Peterson becomes the second Regent football player this season to earn a weekly award from the NACC, and only the second Regent ever to be named to the D3football.com Team of the Week. Rockford's other D3football.com Team of the Week recipient came during the 2013 season when wide receiver Delroy Russell Jr. was selected.
