Tony Andrews Named GLIAC Defensive Player of the Week

BAY CITY, Mich.—Lake Erie College sophomore defensive back Tony Andrews (South Euclid, Ohio/Charles F. Brush) was named Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) Defensive Player of the Week after setting a Lake Erie record with four interceptions against nonconference rival Notre Dame College on Saturday (Oct. 12) in his first career start.

His four interceptions helped lift the Storm to a 42-35 victory on the road.

Andrews picked off his first pass in the second quarter and returned it 61 yards to the end zone, though the score was nullified on a penalty during the return.  Later in the quarter, Andrews had his second interception to halt a Falcons drive late in the half in Storm territory.  In the final minute of the first half, Andrews picked off a pass in the end zone to prevent a touchdown.  Andrews had his final interception in the third quarter at the Storm 12-yard line to once again halt a Notre Dame drive in Storm territory.

In addition to his four interceptions, Andrews also made three tackles.

This season, Andrews has five interceptions and a kick returned for a touchdown.
