Zach Donan, Hanover, Football (Defense)

Hanover senior linebacker Zach Donan (New Albany, Ind. / New Albany) anchored the Panthers defense in a 23-20 win at Franklin last week and has been named the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Football Player of the Week on defense.

Donan led a Panther defense that forced five turnovers and held the Grizzlies to a season-low 20 points. The senior tallied seven tackles and one interception to go along with a forced and recovered fumble on Franklin’s final offensive possession. Donan also added a tackle for loss while aiding the defense in holding the Grizzlies to nearly 200 yards under their season average.

The Hanover Panthers (7-3, 7-1 HCAC) will travel to Naperville, Ill. on Saturday at 1 p.m. to play North Central College in the NCAA Division III Playoffs.
