The third week of the NCAA D-III spring football season concluded this past weekend, which means it is time to share our second Noontime Sports Team of the Week.
This week’s team includes student-athletes from the following schools: Brevard College, Huntingdon College, Pacific Lutheran University, and Whitworth University.
And in case you missed it, we shared (and posted) our first spring football team of the week earlier this month on Monday, February 8, 2021.
As always, thanks for stopping by to read today’s Team of the Week, and make sure to come back later this week for more spring football posts.
