Stader named GPAC football special teams player of the week

Eli Stader of Northwestern College is this week’s GPAC/Hauff Mid-America Sports Special Teams Player-of-the-Week.

Stader, a junior from Cedar Grove, Wisconsin, was a perfect 7-for-7 on PAT attempts for the Red Raiders. On the season he has missed just twice in 51 attempts and has accounted for 76 points. In the win at Dakota Wesleyan and on top of his perfect PAT chances, he had eight kickoffs for 469 total yards with two touchbacks. Doubling as the Red Raider punter, he only had to use his punting leg once in the contest for a punt of 43 yards.

Entering the final week of the regular season, Stader leads the GPAC in PATS made (49) and second in PAT percentage (96%) (min. 35 attempts). His program-best 53-yard field goal sits third in the GPAC this season.

Stader is earning his third Special Teams Player of the Week honor of the season and his Red Raider career.
