Former East Greene and Greene County High School athlete TJ Lint was named the Iowa Conference Male Athlete of the Week. Lint is a senior receiver on the Buena Vista University (Storm Lake) football team. He had 12 catches for 191 yards and two touchdowns on Saturday as the Beavers won 44-41 over the U. of Dubuque. Two of the catches went for a combined 33 yards and helped set up BVU’s game-winning score with 17 seconds left.
Lint’s 191 yards receiving are the most in a single game by any IIAC player this season and he’s now topped the 1,900 yard mark for his career, good for fourth on the school’s all-time list.
The Beavers are 3-2 overall and 2-2 in IIAC games. They play Oct. 14 in Missouri at Washington University.
