Bernard Tabbed Defensive Player of the Week

LANCASTER, Pa. – Susquehanna sophomore linebacker Adrian Bernard (East Stroudsburg, Pa./Pius X) was tabbed the Centennial Conference’s Defensive Player of the Week following his performance in Saturday’s 38-18 win at Moravian.

Bernard and the SU defense held Moravian to just 91 yards on the ground and only 15 first downs all day. Bernard, meanwhile, racked up 11 tackles (six solo), including a sack, 2.5 tackles for loss and forced and recovered a fumble.

For the season, Bernard has started all six games and leads the team in tackles (56), including 10 for loss. He also has one sack, one pass breakup, one pass defended, one fumble recovery and three forced fumbles.

The Crusaders are now 3-3 on the season, including a 2-3 mark in league play and have won two in a row.
