CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – After tying the Harvard single-game record for tackles in a game, Nick Hasselberg has been selected as the COOP Athlete of the Week for Nov. 22.
Hasselberg, playing in his final game for the Crimson, recorded 10 tackles in each half to total 20 against archrival Yale and tie Isaiah Kacybenski ’00, who accomplished the feat twice in 1999 (Colgate, Fordham). One of Hasselberg’s most important tackles came on a Yale fourth-and-one from the Harvard 10. Hasselberg and teammate Alexander Norman broke through the offensive line to drop Yale running back Morecai Cargill for a one-yard loss and keep the score tied at 7-7.
Hasselberg also added a quarterback hurry to his stat line from The Game. He finishes the season tied as team leader in tackles with Collin Zych. Both finished their senior seasons with 79. Hasselberg also had two sacks, five tackles for losses and three pass breakups on the season.
