Ex-Gopher Pedescleaux Named MVFC First Team
Pedescleaux was one of the biggest reasons the UNI defense ranks second in the MVFC and 20th in the nation in rush defense (105.3 yards/game). He has 54 tackles, 11.5 tackle-for-loss and 6.5 quarterback sacks for the Panthers in 2008. He secured a season-high nine tackles and 2.5 tackles-for-loss in a 34-14 win over Nicholls State. Pedescleaux earned the league's defensive player of the week honors after finishing with seven tackles, two tackles-for-loss, a sack and a forced fumble in a 21-20 win at Youngstown State. He is tied for the team lead with three forced fumbles. He ranks second on the team with two blocked kicks. Pedescleaux has blocked six kicks in his UNI career.
