COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (October 24, 2016) - Colorado State University-Pueblo redshirt-freshman linebacker Kyle Rosenbrock (Brush, Colo.) was named Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Week Monday, in an announcement from the league office.
Rosenbrock marks the fifth weekly league award for the ThunderWolves this season, which includes three defensive players.
Brandon Payer (So., LB, Pine, Colo.) and Daniel Wise (Sr., WR, Arlington, Texas) earned the defensive and special teams, respectfully, honors last week. Bernard McDondle (Jr., RB, Littleton, Colo.) was offensive player of the week Oct. 10 and Emery Taylor (CB, R-Fr., Aurora, Colo.) won the defensive award Sept. 19.
In his first career start, Rosenbrock, a redshirt-freshman, led the team in tackles with 10 (three solo) with a team-best 2.5 tackles for loss (-9 yards) and a forced fumble in a 49-14 road win at Black Hills State University, Saturday. The fumble was recovered by the Pack and set-up the offense's first of seven touchdowns.
The inside linebacker helped a ThunderWolves defense hold Black Hills State to 35 yards rushing (entered the game with 213.7 per game). The Pack also produced two turnovers and didn't give one up to the RMAC-leading (third nationally) BHSU, who entered with a +12 turnover margin.
The Pack (5-3, 5-2 RMAC) stay on the road for a RMAC battle at Western State Colorado University (6-2, 6-2 RMAC), Oct. 29 at 1 p.m.
