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.
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.
