McLoughlin Reels in Defensive Player of the Week Honor

LANCASTER, Pa. – Susquehanna linebacker Tom McLoughlin (Bloomsbury, N.J./Bethlehem Catholic) has been tabbed the Centennial Conference Co-Defensive Player of the Week, announced Sunday afternoon.

McLoughlin, a senior, led the Crusaders with 14 total tackles in a 28-13 season-opening home win against Lycoming on Saturday afternoon. Ten of those 14 tackles were solo and he also added an interception and blocked extra point. McLoughlin and SU's defense limited the Warriors to just 156 passing yards.

McLoughlin and the Crusaders return to action on Sept. 12 with a 1 p.m. road game at #13 Johns Hopkins in the Centennial Conference season opener for both squads.
