ORANGE, Calif. – Sophomore LB Anthony Ferraro has been named to the D3football.com Team of the Week for his efforts in the Chapman University football team's 16-14 season-opening win over Whitworth University on Sept. 3. The last Panther to be named to the Team of the Week was WR Chris Langstaff in 2010.
In what was his first career start at linebacker, the Fullerton, Calif. native had seven tackles, four tackles for loss and two sacks. In just one game this season, Ferraro doubled his sack total from a year ago when he played strong safety for the Panthers and totaled 33 tackles, 22 of which were unassisted.
Each week, D3football.com compiles nominations from sports information directors across the country and then votes on the D3football.com Team of the Week which is released each Wednesday.
