HutchCC Sports Information
For the first time in his Blue Dragon career, Hutchinson Community College sophomore linebacker Quen Head was named the Jayhawk Conference's Defensive Player of the Week for his performance in a tough loss at Iowa Western on Saturday.
A 6-foot-2, 209-pound sophomore from Forsyth, Georgia, Head had a huge game for the Blue Dragons in a 27-21 loss at No. 12 Iowa Western. Head made 10 total tackles, including eight solo stops.
His biggest play, however, came late in the game with Iowa Western up 27-21 and ready to put the Dragons away. He intercepted a pass in the end zone which kept the game at a one-possession difference and gave the Dragons an opportunity for a last minute drive that ended at the IWCC 2.
Head is the second Blue Dragon to win a weekly conference honor. Receiver Jaylen Erwin was the league's offensive player of the week.
