SEWARD, Neb. – A rising star on the interior of the Concordia defensive line, Devon Polley has been recognized as the GPAC/Hauff Mid-America Sports GPAC Defensive Player of the Week, as announced by the conference on Monday (Oct. 10). Polley was honored based on his performance in last week’s 30-15 win over Jamestown. Polley is the first Bulldog Football player to be named a conference player of the week in 2022. The program collected seven GPAC weekly awards in 2021.

A native of Edmond, Okla., Polley produced four tackles, 2.5 sacks and two quarterback hurries in the win over Jamestown. The 6-foot-1, 285-pound nose tackle also had a hand in snuffing out all four Jimmie fourth down attempts, including one on fourth and goal from the one. Jamestown finished with 71 rushing yards. On the season, Polley has collected 28 tackles, six tackles for loss and three sacks. His career stat line includes 48 tackles, 12.5 tackles for loss and 6.5 sacks. Polley is an alum of Edward Memorial High School.

Polley and the Bulldogs (2-3, 2-3 GPAC) will host Mount Marty at 1 p.m. CT on Saturday. Concordia is in the midst of playing three-straight home games.
