Northwestern Football: Brian Arnfelt Driven To Succeed In Senior Season

The Northwestern Wildcats (3-0) have navigated their early schedule very well, and the leadership provided by seniors like defensive tackle Brian Arnfelt may have played a role in that success. Arnfelt was forced to sit out due to injury last season, but now he is back and determined to make to make the most of his opportunities, which is what he told Neil Hayes of the Chicago Sun-Times:

"It's definitely not easy to sit out with an injury, but it gives you an outsider's perspective that I would say now is one of the biggest pluses in my life," Arnfelt said. "You're able to see that the clock is ticking. I'm not guaranteed any more snaps. I could do something in practice today or tomorrow. You have to appreciate everything you get."

The 6'5, 300-pound lineman and the rest of the Wildcats will take on South Dakota on Saturday.
