TACOMA, Washington – Puget Sound linebacker Chris Beaulaurier has been nominated for the Cliff Harris Award, which "is presented to the nation's top small college defender."
Beaulaurier is the only Northwest Conference member to receive a nomination for the award. Former Puget Sound linebacker and current assistant coach Max Mirande '15 was nominated for the Cliff Harris Award in 2014.
Beaulaurier, a senior from Spokane, Washington, ranked second the NWC with 94 tackles. He recorded at least 12 tackles in five different games, and finished with a season-high 20 during the Loggers' win over Pacific Lutheran.
"Chris established himself as one of the best linebackers in the region through four years of consistent hard work," said Puget Sound head coach Jeff Thomas. "His play in particular this past season was spectacular in any objective way you measure linebackers. His leadership abilities were unparalleled, and I am very happy he is getting his just recognition."
