Manna Named ECAC South Region Defensive Player of the Week

DANBURY, Conn. - Wesley College football sophomore Samer Manna was named ECAC South Region Player of the Week on Wednesday afternoon after his stellar week three performance against Christopher Newport University.

Manna helped the Wolverines to a 44-24 win by making 17 tackles and registering a quarterback hurry. The linebacker's 17 stops mark the most by a New Jersey Athletic Conference player so far this season. His 11.5 tackles per game also ranks atop the conference leaderboard.

Manna and the Wolverines travel to Napierville, Ill. on the outskirts of Chicago for a top-25 matchup this week. The No. 5 Wolverines will battle the No. 22 North Central College Cardinals.
