MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. - Shenandoah University safety Byron Mitchell has been named to the D3football.com Team of the Week for week nine in selections announced late Tuesday evening by the website.
Mitchell returned the first of those interceptions for his first career touchdown and 2.5 of his six solo tackles went for loss.
The Virginia Beach native co-leads (with classmate Josh Rogers) the Hornets with 70 tackles on the year and shares the team lead in interceptions with three.
This is Mitchell's second weekly honor this season. On September 19, he was named as the USA South Conference defensive Player of the Week after making 12 tackles in the Randolph-Macon contest.
Shenandoah is back in action this Saturday with a 1:00 contest at Averett.
