Following another stand-out performance against Iowa Saturday, Ohio State fourth-year linebacker Tommy Eichenberg has been named the Lott IMPACT Trophy Player of the Week for the eighth week of the college football season.

Eichenberg recorded seven tackles and a pass breakup against the Hawkeyes, adding his first career defensive touchdown on a second-quarter pick six of Iowa quarterback Spencer Petras. Eichenberg ran the interception back 15 yards to paydirt.

The Ohio native is the Buckeyes’ leader in tackles this season by a wide margin, with 57 takedowns outpacing fourth-year linebacker Steele Chambers’ second-best total of 35. He’s added seven tackles for loss and 2 1⁄2 sacks, good for second and third on the squad, respectively.

The Lott IMPACT Trophy is awarded annually to college football’s defensive player who best exemplifies the values of the IMPACT acronym: Integrity, maturity, performance, academics, community and tenacity.
