Teats becomes sixth Logger to receive a conference honor

TACOMA, Washington – Zackary Teats is the sixth different Puget Sound football student-athlete this season to earn a Northwest Conference weekly award. The defensive back was named the NWC Student-Athlete of the Week for defense following the Loggers' amazing comeback victory, 34-22, at Lewis & Clark (Oct. 6).

Teats, a 2017 All-NWC honoree, finished the game with two interceptions and five tackles. His efforts helped Puget Sound overcome a 20-0 deficit. Teats' first interception was returned 36 yards for a touchdown early in the third quarter, giving the Loggers their first lead of the game, 21-20.

Teats' second interception ended Lewis & Clark's final possession of the game. He's the second Puget Sound defender score a touchdown this season. Matt Ahnin returned a fumble 76 yards for a touchdown during Puget Sound's season-opening win at Claremont-M-S. Ahnin also had three takeaways (two interceptions, fumble recovery) against the Pioneers.

Loggers previously honored by the NWC this season include AJ Johnson, Jewell Day, Alex Everett, Murdock Rutledge, and Collin Heimbach

The Loggers are 4-1 for the first time since the 2000 season, and they return to Baker Stadium to host Pacific Saturday, Oct. 13, at 1 p.m.
