The junior linebacker had six solo stops among his 13 tackles and also forced a recovered a fumble on Saturday.
Liberty High graduate and current Mount Mercy sophomore setter Hailey Hested surpassed the 1,000-assist mark for her career on Friday in a five-set victory over Culver-Stockton.
Hested was named Heart of America Athletic Conference Setter of the Week last week and has helped the Mustangs to an 8-1 start to the season.

The seven ace serves for Fay against North Carolina A&T were the most for any Division I player in a four-set match this season and marked just the fifth time in New Mexico State history a player had seven aces in a match.
West High graduate Tom Adolph had seven tackles and a sack on Saturday to help Central College defeat St. Olaf 44-13 in its season opener in Pella.
