KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Northwest Missouri State University defensive end Austen Eskew has been named the MIAA Special Teams co-Athlete of the Week. Eskew and the Bearcats defeated Missouri Western, 30-0, on Saturday in St. Joseph, Mo. The junior tallied three total tackles with one sack. But it was his play on punt coverage that garnered him the honor. He blocked a pair of Griffon punts, giving the Northwest offense the ball in Missouri Western territory.
Northwest will take on Ashland in the 2017 NCAA Football Playoffs on Saturday, Nov. 18, at 11 a.m. CST in Ashland, Ohio.
