Goldsworthy Selected to Don Hansen All-Super Region Three 3rd Team

unnamedBROOKFIELD, III. – Michigan Tech defensive lineman Cody Goldsworthy has been selected to the 2017 Don Hansen All-Super Region Three 3rd Team, announced this week by the Don Hansen Football Committee.

Goldsworthy, a junior defensive end from L’Anse, Michigan, averaged 4.2 tackles per game, led the Huskies in sacks (3), and was second in tackles for a loss (9.5). His tackles for a loss totals cost opposing offenses 48 yards and his three sacks resulted in a loss of 27 yards. Goldsworthy also recovered a fumble which set up a touchdown in Tech’s win over Davenport. His tackle totals of 46 were a single-season career high as well as his 9.5 tackles for a loss.

Goldsworthy will enter his senior season in 2018 with 106 career tackles, 7.5 sacks, and 18.5 tackles for a loss. Goldsworthy was named to the All-GLIAC 2nd Team and was recently selected as the Defensive Lineman of the Year when Tech football announced the end of the year team awards.

The Don Hansen team carries out the legacy of long-time small college football advocate Don Hansen, who passed away at age 75 on Aug. 29, 2010. Hansen, from Brookfield, Ill., started and published Don Hansen’s National Weekly Football Gazette for three decades, selecting NCAA Division II All-America teams for the first time in 1988. Don Hansen’s Football Gazette began selecting Division II All-Region squads in 2003.

The first-team and second-team All-Region selections advance to a national ballot from which the 2017 Don Hansen NCAA Division II All-America team will be selected.

Cody is a senior finance major who will be continuing his studies with us as MSA student in the fall.

Finance Club Visits Chicago

On November 4, the Finance Club had the opportunity to visit Chicago to meet with finance professionals across the industry. First they visited Northern Trust, a financial services company. The club had the opportunity to speak with professionals who specialize in areas such as wealth management and private equity. The professionals at Northern Trust emphasized the importance of taking advantages of opportunities, such as internships and school programs like APMP. Students also learned that it is important to constantly challenge themselves to make a lifetime career, not just a job.

The club then had the opportunity to tour Chicago Board of Options Exchange (CBOE). There, the club learned how trading used to be conducted in the chaotic world of trading floors and see how much technology has impacted trading and investing.

Students were also able to tour the Chicago Federal Reserve where they learned about the role the Federal Reserve plays in the U.S. economy. The Federal Reserve is responsible for functions such as setting monetary policy and regulating the banking industry. It is also responsible for keeping the money supply at sustainable levels around the country. The club had roughly $3 billion of cash under their feet as they learned about the nation’s bank.

After a successful trip to Chicago, the Finance Club says they are ready to spread knowledge throughout campus through multiple financial literacy events.  Stay tuned for more information!
