MINNEAPOLIS, Min. – Announced this morning by D3football.com, sophomore Anthony Monroe was named to the Team of the Week for his performance against Chapman on Saturday as the No. 8 Cal Lutheran Kingsmen locked up their fourth consecutive Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) title and earned an automatic bid to the NCAA Playoffs.

Monroe was instrumental in the 38-28 victory over the Panthers just as he was against La Verne on Nov. 3. In two games he has 25 total tackles with three sacks.

The sophomore continued to embrace his starting role this week with 10 total tackles, four solo stops, with 3.5 for a loss. Monroe was credited with a pair of huge sacks for a loss of 37 combined yards. He was a nuisance all game as the CLU claimed its fourth consecutive SCIAC title, stretching their conference undefeated streak to 27.

CLU will host No. 14 North Central (Ill.) in the NCAA Division III Football Playoffs on Saturday, Nov. 17, marking the fourth straight year the Kingsmen have played in the post season, though this is the first home game in the history of Cal Lutheran football.
