[SEPT. 18, 2006]  ST. LOUIS -- For the second straight week a member of the Illinois State defensive unit was named the Gateway Football Conference Defensive Player of the Week, as senior linebacker Cameron Siskowic was selected by the league office on Sunday.

The 2006 Buck Buchanan Award candidate offered 22 reasons to be considered for the honor, as Siskowic collected a career-best and game-high 22 tackles in the 44-30 win over No. 18 Eastern Illinois. He also added a forced fumble and a quarterback hurry during the game.

With his 22 tackles, including 14 that came in the second half, Siskowic notched the most stops by a Redbird since Gean Gilot collected 23 tackles against Western Kentucky in 2003.

Siskowic now has 45 tackles on the season, which not only leads the Gateway, but all of I-AA. His weekly honor, the first of his career, marked the fourth by the Redbirds this season.
