Kyle Schultz, Monmouth College Football

MONMOUTH, Ill. – A day after the Midwest Conference bestowed the league’s Defensive Performer of the Week honor on Monmouth’s Kyle Schultz (Heyworth, Ill./Heyworth), the website has honored him with a similar award.
Schultz – who picked off a pair of passes and recorded 10 tackles in Saturday’s rain-soaked 59-14 win over Illinois College – was named to the Team of the Week. The senior linebacker picked off both passes in Monmouth territory, returning the second 34 yards to the IC 40 to set up a Scots’ field goal. Schultz’ effort helped the Scots maintain a share of the lead in the Midwest Conference South Division.
