|Monmouth College Linebacker Ruff Named MWC Performer of Week
|Monmouth College linebacker Marcus Ruff led the charge defensively in last week's 35-13 win over Ripon and was named the Midwest Conference Defensive Performer of the Week.
Ruff, an Avon native, made an impact early as the Fighting Scots took over sole possession of first place in the Midwest Conference. The junior started the game with a bang, recovering a Red Hawk fumble at the Ripon 16-yard line to set up Monmouth's first score.
Ruff when on to record 16 tackles, including a team-high 12 solos, and broke up two passes. His 16 tackles in the game was more than half his season total.
