RICHMOND, Ind. — A record-breaking performance last Saturday helped Kaleb Lingg earn
some recognition from the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference on Monday.
Lingg (Dayton, OH/Northridge) was named the HCAC Defensive Player of the Week for
football after his performance in Earlham's 21-20 victory at Anderson University.
The linebacker established an Earlham record of 24 tackles in a game against the
Ravens. The previous school standard in the NCAA era of 20 tackles was set in 2000
by Robert Gunn against the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology.
The senior had six tackles behind the line of scrimmage including a quarterback sack
to go with a forced fumble, fumble recovery and four pass breakups.
On special teams, Lingg averaged 41.8 yards on six punts with a long of 54 yards. He
pinned Anderson's offense inside the 20-yard line three times and ran for nine yards
on a fake punt to pick up a first down.
Next up for the Quakers (2-5, 1-4) is a HCAC affair against Hanover College on
Saturday in Darrell Bean Stadium at 1:30 p.m.
