Indiana LB Micah McFadden lands national honor for performance in win over Wisconsin
The performance from Indiana linebacker Micah McFadden in the Hoosiers’ 14-6 victory over Wisconsin on Saturday has resulted in some national recognition.
On Sunday, McFadden was named the Walter Camp National Defensive Player of the Week. Florida quarterback Kyle Trask was named the recipient of the weekly honor on the offensive side of the football.
McFadden was all over the field for the Hoosiers on Saturday, piling up 9 tackles, 6 of which were solo stops. He also had 2 sacks in the victory. Indiana improved to 6-1 with the win over the weekend, with its lone loss to Ohio State.
For the year, McFadden has been one of the best defensive players in the B1G. He’s been credited with 52 tackles, 8.5 stops for loss, 5 sacks and 2 interceptions in 7 games this fall. He’s a key piece of a defense that is allowing just 19.4 points per game on the year, ranking 4th-best in the B1G this year.
Indiana will close out the regular season against Purdue (2-4) on Saturday in Bloomington.
