MINNEAPOLIS – Salisbury University junior cornerback Christian Wilson has added another accolade for his defensive play this season, being named to D3football.com Team of the Week following the Sea Gull football team's 31-28 Homecoming win over No. 13 Rowan University, the website announced on Tuesday.
This marks the first time a Sea Gull has received this honor since the 2013 season, and is the second weekly accolade this year for Wilson, who was named the New Jersey Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Week on September 6.
Wilson was the spark Salisbury was looking for in the second half on Saturday when he intercepted a Rowan pass attempt and returned it for a touchdown on just the second play of the half which led to a 22-point third quarter for the Sea Gulls.
With the Sea Gulls holding the Profs to just 130 passing yards, Wilson totaled 10 tackles, six of which were solo, along with one pass breakup.
Wilson and the Sea Gulls will continue their season on Saturday, October 17 with an NJAC matchup against William Paterson University at Sea Gull Stadium; the opening kickoff is set for 1 p.m.
