For the 2nd time in less than a month, Elite Performance Academy football athlete John Biewald has been named the OUA Defensive Player of the Week for his performance against University of Toronto. John is currently 3rd in the Nation in QB Sacks.
John has been a member of the EPA program since 2012, and has trained in the Elite D2D CIS/NCAA Summer Prep Program since it began. This past summer, he was one of the featured athletes on the House Edge Sports Network's documentary web series "#TheDifference".
DEFENCE: John Biewald (Ottawa, Ont.) – 4th yr. – Western
Defensive end John Biewald led the Western Mustangs in another stellar defensive performance as the Mustangs trampled the University of Toronto Varsity Blues 58-2 last week.
The 6’4’’ 225 lbs playmaker collected five solo tackles and a sack for a loss of 10 yards. Biewald was all over the field as he also had a tackle for a loss of 10 yards, a forced fumble which he recovered and returned 38 yards, and a blocked pass.
The fourth-year social science student-athlete has been extremely productive for the Mustangs all season, as he sits half a sack behind teammate Ricky Osei-Kusi for the top spot in the category.
Biewald has helped lead the Mustangs defence to top spot in OUA, allowing only 11 points per game, while picking off 13 passes and adding four touchdowns of their own.
Biewald and the Mustangs return home to London, Ont. where they will welcome the visiting Ottawa Gee-Gees to the not-so-friendly confines of TD Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
