NWC Defensive Student-Athlete of the Week for October 17 - 23, 2011

Nate Dixon
Linfield, Senior
Kapolei, Hawaii/Kapolei
Dixon had two interceptions in the first four minutes that quickly put the momentum in Linfield's favor. His first grab, on PLU's first pass attempt, led to a Wildcat touchdown not even two minutes into the game. The senior cornerback also ran for 15 yards on Linfield's only kickoff return of the day. Overall, the Linfield defense forced four turnovers and five sacks while holding the Lutes to 183 total yards of offense.
