Hutchinson honoured by OUA and U SPORTS
WATERLOO, Ont. (October 11, 2017) - Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks second year linebacker Shomari Hutchinson of Lasalle, Que., has been recognized as the OUA and U SPORTS Defensive Player of the Week after an outstanding performance in the Laurier's 53-31 win over the York Lions last Thursday. 

While the headlines will feature the impressive offensive showing from the Golden Hawks’ 53-31 win over the Lions, Hutchinson’s defensive efforts cannot be overlooked. In what was a dominant performance for the second-year linebacker, Hutchinson picked up a total of 14.5 tackles for the game, including 12 solo takedowns. His total not only helped keep the Lions from making the game closer, but it also helped him tie the school’s all-time mark, previously set by Jesse Alexander vs. Ottawa in 2006. Not only that, but Hutchinson did all of this in his first career start at linebacker.

Hutchinson and the No. 5 Hawks (5-1) will be back in action this Saturday when they hit the road to take on the No. 10 Guelph Gryphons (3-3). Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. at Alumni Stadium.
