Olsen named to D3football.com Team of the Week

Olsen scored Hamline's first touchdown of the game in the Pipers' 34-17 win over Carleton. He snagged an interception in the first quarter and then the 6-5, 245 linebacker returned the ball 39 yards for the score.

He also had three pass break-ups in the game and a forced fumble that the Pipers recovered. He added seven tackles (three solo, four assists).

Earlier this week Olsen was named the MIAC defensive player of the week.
