Helgeson Sprint Football Defensive Player of Week

PHILADELPHIA – University of Pennsylvania junior Stu Helgeson earned the Collegiate Sprint Football League (CSFL) Defensive Player of the Week honors for his performance in the Quakers 14-7 victory at Franklin Pierce in week four.

Helgeson collected seven tackles – all solo – in Friday’s matchup against the Ravens, and had two pass breakups along with hauling in an interception. Helgeson and the Quakers made a decisive stop inside the five yard line with under a minute remaining in the fourth quarter to seal the Penn victory.

A First-team All-CSFL defensive back with a league leading 62 tackles a year ago, Helgeson has totaled 18 tackles in three games this season, and has recorded five passes defended with an interception.
