Coming off its first win of the season, a 27-12 victory over Hope College, the Lakeland College football team received more good news as Tony Faller (Oostburg, Wis.), Roberto Flores (Milwaukee, Wis.), and Nic Horstmeier (Random Lake, Wis.) won Northern Athletics Conference student-athlete of the week honors.
Faller, a junior safety, was acknowledged for the second time this season, this time with a NAC defensive student-athlete of the week. On Saturday, he led Lakeland with six tackles, including one and a half for a loss.
