BETHANY’S ARRINGTON NAMED PAC PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Nov. 17 - WEXFORD, Pa. – Bethany freshman linebacker Kyle Arrington (Jackson Twp., Ohio/Jackson) has been selected as the Presidents’ Athletic Conference (PAC) Defensive Player of the Week for Nov. 16.
The 6-1, 225-pound middle linebacker led a spirited Bison defense in their 34-13 “Green Game” victory over Saint Vincent Saturday. He posted a season-high 12 tackles and also picked off a pass, which stopped a Bearcat drive in Bethany territory and set up the final BC scoring drive of the afternoon. It was his second consecutive game with double-digit hits after making 10 and recording a sack the previous week against #15 Washington & Jefferson.
His work also helped the Bison limit Saint Vincent to 247 yards, the lowest total surrendered by the Green and White this season, and also force five turnovers.
Saturday’s effort completed a fine freshman season for Arrington, who finished second on the team with 72 tackles. It’s the most stops by a Bethany freshman since Mike Carson made 79 tackles in 1999. Arrington also posted five passed defensed, two interceptions and 1.5 sacks.
“Kyle had two strong games at the end to cap off a really good season,” said Bethany head coach Tim Weaver. “He is one of our trio of freshmen linebackers who is big, smart and really wants to be a good football player, so we’re excited about his future.”
A biology/pre-med major, Kyle is the son of Pamela and Tony Arrington of Jackson Twp., Ohio.
