RUSHVILLE — For the second time this week, Trine University football player Blaek Combs (Rushville, Ind./Rushville) earned honors, this time being named to the National D3football.com Team of the Week presented by Scoutware for his performance against Albion College. Combs, a junior, was  already honored as the conference Defensive Player of the Week after making a career- and game-high 17 tackles, eight solo, and came up with a clutch interception in the game’s final minute to preserve Trine’s 27-22 win over defending conference champion Albion. He is the third Trine player to be named to the National Team of the Week, joining Caleb Nitz and Nick Muir.
