Woodson selected to D3football.com Team of the Week
Athletics - posted on 10/15/2008
Lakeland cornerback Keith Woodson has been chosen as a member of D3football.com's Week 6 Team of the Week, for NCAA Division III college football games played Oct. 10-11.
The Evanston, Ill., native posted 11 total tackles, two pass
breakups and two interceptions. His second pick of the game was returned for a 70-yard touchdown with 4:23 left in the fourth quarter to seal a 26-7 Muskie victory at Wisconsin Lutheran last Saturday.
Woodson was also a key to the containment of Warrior wide receiver Dominique Johnson, the NAC's leading receiver entering the contest. Johnson finished with just two catches for 47 yards.
"Keith really played a heck of a game this week, he continues to get better and better," Lakeland defensive coordinator Colin Bruton said. "He's really becoming more of a complete player week to week. He's more physical against the run and has done a great job in pass coverage."
Woodson was also selected as the Northern Athletics Conference Student-Athlete of the Week for defense.
For the season, Woodson is tied for the team lead with four interceptions. The Muskies are tied for first in the nation with 15 picks as a team.
"Coach Bruton and Coach [Ryan] Maiuri, our secondary coach, do a great job of preparing these guys so they know what to look for as far as route combinations and tendencies out of certain offensive sets," Lakeland head coach Kevin Doherty said.
"I think our defensive backs play with great skill and passion back there, and they're disciplined within their techniques and disciplined within their assignment within the specific call," he added. "That gets them in the right position to make the play, then obviously they have to execute that when they're in the position, and they've been doing that."
