Bridgewater College junior cornerback Chase Rosenthal has been named to the first national Team of the Week for the 2019 season.

Rosenthal, the ODAC Defensive Player of the Week, had a hand in two of the three turnovers forced by Bridgewater's defense and helped put points on the board in a 41-10 win over Gettysburg.

Rosenthal, who made one tackle on the day, came up with a pair of first-half interceptions as the Eagles built a 34-0 edge at halftime. His first takeaway came late in the first quarter and with the Bullets pinned deep in their own territory. On the first play of the drive, Rosenthal intercepted a pass at the 8-yard line and scampered to the end zone for a 13-0 BC advantage.

His second interception came a few minutes before halftime. With Gettysburg in BC territory, Rosenthal intercepted a pass at the Eagles' 28-yard line and returned it 36 yards to the Bullets' 36. Three plays later, Bridgewater tacked on its final points of the half to go up 34-0.

This is the 21st season that has selected the Team of the Week, which honors the top player nationally at each position from the previous week.
