CHICAGO – University of Chicago football player Jackson Ross earned a spot on the D3football.com Team of the Week on Tuesday after his standout performance against Illinois College.
The Maroons bottled up the Blueboys, forcing three turnovers and keeping them out of the end zone for the opening 55 minutes of the game. At his defensive tackle position, Ross helped lead the charge with a team-best 10 tackles and half a sack. He was instrumental in the turnover battle, picking off a pass near the line of scrimmage and later recovering a fumble inside the 10-yard line.
Ross ranks second on the team with 32 tackles so far this season. The sophomore has also blocked two kicks.
