Hobart (N.Y.) College junior linebacker Nolan Toran, a Gateway graduate, earned Liberty League Defensive Performer of the Week following the team's 34-21 victory over Utica College on Sept. 21.

He was responsible for all three Hobart takeaways against the previously unbeaten Pioneers.

Toran intercepted Utica's first pass of the game and returned it 21 yards. He also forced and recovered a fumble that led to Hobart's second TD.

He forced another fumble on Utica's first drive of the second half and finished the game with five solo tackles.

The performance also earned him Division III Northwest Defensive Player of the Week and a spot on D3football.com's Team of the Week.

Hobart defeated the Merchant Marine Academy on Saturday to improve to 3-0 on the season, and it remained No. 5 in the American Football Coaches Association poll and No. 7 in the D3football.com top 25.

Hobart hosts Worcester Polytechnic Institute on Saturday at noon.
