BURNSVILLE, MINN. (KWSN) –  Sioux Falls sophomore defensive back Solomon St. Pierre (5-11, 171 lbs.) was named the NSIC defensive player of the week for his pick-six, two-interception, five-tackle outburst at Wayne State, which helped propel USF to a 35-10 season finale victory against the Wildcats. 

The Wagner HS product’ first-career pick-six kick-started a Cougar defense that made big plays all day long, forcing Wayne State into seven turnovers.

St. Pierre leaped up and snatched a Zach Osborn pass out of the air and sprinted 70 yards to paydirt to give the visiting Cougars the 7-0 advantage with 11:48left in the second quarter. It was one of five interceptions for the Cougars, who entered the contest with just four interceptions in 10 games. St. Pierre picked off a second Wildcat pass deep in the red zone later in the second half and he was also credited with five solo tackles. 

Saturday’s victory marked USF’s (6-5, 4-3 NSIC South) 20th straight winning season.
