INDIANAPOLIS – For the second time in three weeks, Ohio Dominican football senior Camren Moore (New Carlisle, Ohio) has been named Great Midwest Defensive Player of the Week.
Moore led the Panthers with 11 total tackles, including nine solo stops during a 17-7 win at Hillsdale in the regular season finale. The senior added two sacks and a forced fumble as well.
With Moore leading the way, ODU tied a single game school record with seven sacks in the win. The Panthers also allowed 10 or fewer points for the fifth consecutive game, all of which were ODU victories.
With Hillsdale driving late trying to close its deficit to one score, Moore had a strip sack, forced fumble, which was recovered by junior Aarin Smoot-Baker (Columbus, Ohio). The forced fumble by Moore helped preserve the 17-7 final score.
On the season, the senior has five games with double-digit tackles, and the outing against Hillsdale marked the 10th of his collegiate career. Moore leads the team and the G-MAC with 9.6 tackles per game, which is also among the top 25 nationally.
The Panthers have seven G-MAC weekly award winners this season, including five on the defensive side. Moore's pair of awards in 2019 are his lone honors over his collegiate career.
ODU, 7-2 overall and 6-1 in G-MAC play, will conclude its season with the America's Crossroads Bowl against nationally-ranked Truman State on Saturday, Dec. 7.
