DANBURY, Conn. – Lebanon Valley's Tim Schumacher has been named the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) South Division III Football Defensive Player of the Week.

Schumacher was also named the Middle Atlantic Conference (MAC) Defensive Player of the Week on Sunday morning.

The senior forced a pair of second-half turnovers in the win and the linebacker's biggest play of the game came with LVC (3-3, 3-2 MAC) clinging to a 21-14 lead midway through the third quarter. With the Mustangs driving, Schumacher picked off SU quarterback Dan Williams at LVC's 36-yard line and returned it 42 yards back to Stevenson's 22-yard line. The interception led to a field goal that pushed the lead to 24-14. On the ensuing Stevenson possession, he stripped running back Isaiah Austin and recovered the fumble at the Stevenson 39-yard line. The Flying Dutchmen converted the fumble into a touchdown and increased the advantage to 31-14 early in the fourth quarter. Schumacher added four tackles, one tackle for loss, and one quarterback hurry in the victory.

The Dutchmen return to action when they travel to take on MAC foe Misericordia next Saturday, Oct. 21. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m.
