John Pope

College:  Erie Community College

The defensive stalwart stripped the ball from the College of DuPage on their own 7-yard line, which allowed Erie to score a touchdown. The score resulting from the forced fumble allowed ECC to beat the CoD 22-21 in an upset win after the Chaparrals appeared in five of the last six national polls peaking at No. 7. In addition to aiding in the Kats’ touchdown, John also led the team in tackles with 10 and solo tackles with eight. He registered a game-high three sacks and finished with three-and-half tackles for loss for 19 yards and led a defensive push that resulted in 73-percent efficiency on stopping DuPage on third down and leading the defense that only allowed three first down conversions from third down.
