BRIDGEWATER, Va. – Bridgewater College freshman defensive back Daniel Brent turned in a stellar first game of his career in the Crimson and Gold to earn D3Football.com Team of the Week honors in selections made by the website dedicated to Division III football.
Brent was stellar in the opener, making six tackles including three solo stops. In the third quarter, Brent forced one of St. Vincent's four turnovers on the day when he stripped the ball from Bearcats wide receiver Ricky Douglas in Bridgewater territory and returned the fumble 45 yards to give the Eagles solid field position.
The freshman defensive back was also solid in pass coverage, registering one pass breakup on the afternoon.
A native of Gainesville, Va., Brent was the lone freshman selection to the list which is comprised of the top players from the opening weekend of the 2012 football season.
Brent and the rest of the Eagles are back in action Saturday at home when they host Greensboro College at Jopson Field for the home opener. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m.
