Ochs Named PSAC East Defensive Player of the Week

BLOOMSBURG--Defensive tackle Jon Ochs (Wind Gap/Nazareth) has been named the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) Eastern Division Defensive Player of the Week for September 13, 2008.

Ochs' efforts helped 11th-ranked Bloomsburg improve to 3-0 as the Huskies' defense recorded a shutout for the first time since 2005 with a 24-0 win over Mercyhurst. Ochs recorded six tackles, all solo, four of which were tackles for loss, of which three of those were sacks. His four tackles for loss totaled 34 yards and his three sacks resulted in 32 yards lost. He also forced three fumbles and recovered a fumble that later led to a Bloomsburg score.

The Huskies, winners of eight straight dating back to last season, will host Kutztown on Saturday at 1 p.m.
