Leading the League

I'll have more season stats, but I just wanted to note that with several games left to play, sophomore right guard Buccheri (RG #59) is leading the league in blocking. That is, she has collected the most "pancakes" - a block that knocks a person flat on his or her backside - so far. She's also allowed only 2 sacks. X. Leplae (LG #69), my starting sophomore left guard, currently ranks 6th in the league in blocking, with 34 pancakes and only 2 sacks allowed.

On the defensive side, junior free safety Ziegeweid (FS #34) has made 6 interceptions so far this season. That puts him tied with three others, at 3rd best in interceptions. As a team, the Penguins are ranked 2nd in the nation in interceptions. That's insane.

Finally, Bennett (CB #10), our punt-returner, ranks FIRST in the nation in average punt-return yards, with 16.6 yards. She's had 20 punt returns so far this season; her longest was a 55-yard scamper.
