USD junior corner back Ryan Costa (Gilroy, CA) was named the Pioneer Football League defensive player of the week for his outstanding performance in the team's 30-10 victory over Western New Mexico University this past Saturday. Costa, a first year player who transferred to USD from Gavilan College, returned a first quarter interception 88 yards for a touchdown that gave USD a 14-0 lead that eventually ended up being the game winning points. The 88-yard interception return is the third longest this season among FCS players. The victory improved USD's record to 2-0 as they become the only undefeated team in the Pioneer Football League heading into week three.
