Solberg 200x200

Wide receiver Shane Solberg of Northwestern is this week’s GPAC/Hauff Mid-America Sports Offensive Player-of-the-Week. Solberg, a sophomore from Hull, Iowa, had a record-setting day in leading 6th-ranked Northwestern to a 39-29 road win over Hastings last weekend. Solberg matched his career-high with 13 catches for a school-record 269 yards and two touchdowns. He eclipsed the old record set by T.J. Spykstra in 2016. Solberg caught two touchdown passes, both over 50 yards, and has 991 receiving yards this season, just nine yards shy of becoming the second player in program history to get at least 1,000 yards in a season. The sixth-ranked Red Raiders will travel to Concordia on November 3rd. Kick off will be at 1 pm.
