The entire offensive line and starting tight end for the Central College football team was named to the Team of the Week for their performances in last Saturday’s 41-33 victory at Wartburg College.

Named as a group was the offensive line of left tackle Lee Schroeder, left guard A.J. Santon, center Casey Tanner, right guard Andy Kneib and right tackle Joey Shoemaker. Chosen at tight end was Jordan Leuschen.

The offensive line led the way for the Dutch offense, which scored touchdowns on six of its first seven possessions and gained 419 yards in Saturday’s win. Leushen, who is also a key blocker for Central, had four catches for 92 receiving yards and two touchdowns.

It was the fourth time this season that Central has had players named to the Team of the Week. Central’s win over the Knights clinched the outright Iowa Conference title for the Dutch and completed a 10-0 season.
