HAMMOND, La. – After helping the Southeastern Louisiana football team to a 23-6 victory over No. 11/12 McNeese, Lion linebacker Isaac Adeyemi-Berglund was named the Southland Conference Defensive Player of the Week in an announcement from the league office on Monday.

Adeyemi-Berglund, a native of Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, is the fourth Lion to receive weekly honors from the Southland Conference, joining linebacker Tamarcus Russell (Sept. 24, Defensive), wide receiver/kick returner Juwan Petit-Frere (Sept. 24, Special Teams) and punter Ivy Wall (Sept. 17, Special Teams).

Adeyemi-Berglund played a large role in a dominant SLU defensive effort that fueled the Lions’ first victory over a ranked opponent this season. Southeastern held the Cowboys to just 187 total yards – the fewest yielded by SLU since 2014. Adeyemi-Berglund had two of the Lions’ five sacks, finishing with eight tackles and four tackles for loss.

The Lion linebacker has enjoyed a breakout campaign in 2018. He is 11th in the Southland with a team-high six sacks, while ranking 12th in the league and second on the team with 10.5 tackles for loss.


Southeastern will have a bye this weekend before closing out the 2018 season at Nicholls on Thursday, Nov. 15 in Thibodaux. Kickoff for the 2018 River Bell Classic is set for 6 p.m.

Fans can hear the Nov. 15 game on the Southeastern Sports Radio Network (KSLU-FM (90.9), Kajun 107.1 FM, The Highway 104.7 FM and WFPR 1400 AM). Fans can also listen live at and via the Radio FX, TuneIn Radio and Lions Gameday Experience apps. Television details will be released by the Southland Conference later today.
