Anderson, Arriagada take home honors
Edinboro’s Brandon Anderson and Vicente Arriagada helped the Scots snag two of the three weekly Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference football awards for the West Division.
Anderson, a senior safety, was named the Defensive Athlete of the Week, while Arriagada earned Special Teams Athlete of the Week.
Anderson led an Edinboro defense which limited Gannon to 305 total yards, finishing with 10 tackles, including 1.5 tackles for loss and a sack in the Scots 18-17 win. Anderson also had one pass breakup and forced a fumble which led to a field goal. The 305 yards allowed is a season-low for the Edinboro defense.
Arriagada drilled a 35-yard field goal as time expired to provide Edinboro its first win of the season. The redshirt freshmen made three field goals in all, the others covering 46 and 25 yards. The 46-yarder was the longest by an Edinboro kicker since Austin Reese made a 47-yarder against Mercyhurst in 2016. In addition, he is the first kicker to make three field goals in a game since T.J. Hardy made three against Seton Hill in 2013.
