LA VERNE, CA — Torii Hilbert has been named to the D3football.com Team of the Week the website announced on Tuesday.
Hilbert led the La Verne defense in a huge 20-17 overtime win over the defending SCIAC champion Claremont-Mudd-Scripps Stags. With the Stags threating to go up by two scores in the first quarter, Hilbert made one of the biggest plays of the game, intercepting Zack Flogel's pass at the one-yard line. The stop proved critical as the Leopards were able to stay within a score of the Stags until the fourth quarter.
Hilbert finished the game with 10 total tackles, five solo tackles, and a pass breakup.
This season the cornerback has totaled two interceptions, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery, six breakups, and 16 tackles.
The Leopards travel down Arrow Highway this Saturday for a 7 p.m. game against the Pomona-Pitzer Sagehens.Watch Live Download the SCIAC TV App Follow ULV Athletics on Twitter Like us on Facebook Watch on Youtube Follow us on Instagram
