MINNEAPOLIS - Gallaudet University senior cornerback Tony Tatum (Gardendale, Ala.) was named to D3football.com's Team of the Week and his touchdown catch received Play of the Week honors following the Bison's historic first-ever win over Catholic University of America last Friday night. This marks the second time in program history that a Gallaudet player has received D3football.com Team of the Week honors and first time a Gallaudet play was named Play of the Week.
These honors represent the second and third time this week Tatum has been recognized for his outstanding performance as he was named Division III Defensive Player of the Week by the Beyond Sports College Network (BSCN) website on Monday.
Last season, Bison wide receiver Ryne Worsham (Chicago, Ill.) was named to the D3football.com Team of the Week following Gallaudet University's season-opening overtime loss to Otterbein University. Worsham had a career game with seven receptions for a career-best 155 yards and two touchdowns. It marked the first time in program history that a Gallaudet player received such an honor.
