After a dominating defensive effort in the Chargers’ 13-10 victory against Dakota State, Briar Cliff’s Robert Robinson was chosen as the GPAC Defensive Player of the Week.
Robinson helped the Blue and Gold limit the Trojans to 189 total yards of offense. The week before, Dakota State racked up 404 yards with 215 rushing yards and 189 yards through the air.
The Chargers kept their now six-game home winning streak intact thanks to Robinson and the rest of the team’s effort. The junior defensive lineman essentially clinched the game for BC with a strip sack on the Trojans final offensive play of the contest. It was one of his 2.5 tackles for loss in the game and one of eight total tackles for the Los Angelas, California native.
Briar Cliff returns home again this Saturday with the first conference matchup of the season with the Chargers hosting Dakota Wesleyan at 1 p.m.
