Grand View's Josh Calmer (Panorama, Iowa) has been voted as the NAIA National Football Defensive Player of the Week announced by the NAIA national office today.
Calmer was recognized for his dominating performance last Saturday against No. 9 St. Francis (Ind.) in which he tallied 15 tackles, including one tackle for loss, in the Vikings' 21-9 road win in Fort Wayne, Ind. The sophomore defensive back was a key part of a Viking defense that held the Cougars to only 277 yards of total offense, including 63 on the ground, and did not allow SFU a touchdown in a game for the first time ever.
No. 9 Grand View hosts No. 10 St. Xavier (Ill.) this Saturday, Oct. 4 for Homecoming. The top-ten match-up kicks off at 1 p.m.
