House named MIAC special teams athlete of the week

This award marks the second time this season that a Piper has been named the MIAC special teams player of the week. P/K John Broback earned the honor on September 20.

The Pipers enjoyed strong field position all day thanks to House. The return man had a great day taking back both kicks and punts, and the Hamline offense was often able to capitalize on its victories in the field-position battle.  

House was especially dangerous on kickoff returns, amassing 125 total yards on four returns for a 31.2 average. He also returned a pair of punts a total of 22 yards, giving him 147 total return yards on the day. After a 38-yard return into Macalester territory, the Scots stopped kicking to House.

House also had 227 all-purpose yards, adding 80 yards and two touchdown catches. This season, House is third in the MIAC with a kick return average of 23.8 yards per return and he ranks among the league leaders in almost every receiving category.

This weekend, Hamline travels to Gustavus Adolphus on Saturday for a 1:00 p.m. start.
