Concordia’s Kyle Little was recognized as this week’s Hauff Mid-America Sports GPAC Defensive Player-of-the-Week. Little had a career day in Concordia’s 47-12 victory over Briar Cliff University on Saturday.
Little, a junior from Johnson, Neb., made the most of his first career start. The linebacker totaled four solo and seven assisted tackles in the 47-12 rout of Briar Cliff. Little had two sacks on the day and also had a 44-yard interception return for a touchdown in the first quarter. Concordia forced four turnovers en route to their fourth straight win.
Concordia is 4-2 overall and 3-1 in conference play. The Bulldogs travel to Northwestern College this coming weekend for a matchup against the Red Raiders.
