Worthington Named MIAA co-Defensive Player of the Week

Updated:

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Pitt State senior defensive end Spencer Worthington was named the co-Defensive Player of the Week by the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association Monday (Sept. 26).

Worthington (6-2, 220) recorded three of Pitt State's seven quarterback sacks as the Gorillas dominated visiting William Jewell, 49-7, Saturday (Sept. 24) before 9,355 fans at Brandenburg Field/Carnie Smith Stadium.

The Carlisle, Iowa, native made six total stops (four solo) in the contest, including the 3.0 QB sacks that totaled 19 yards.  The Pitt State defense limited the Cardinals to 185 yards of total offense including just 82 net rushing yards on 41 carries.

Worthington shared the league's weekly honor with Missouri Southern freshman defensive lineman Ryon Phillips. His recognition marks the third time in four weeks a Pitt State player has garnered MIAA Defensive Player of the Week recognition.
