A former walk-on, Cichy recorded 15 tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss, one sack and one forced fumble while the Badgers defense held a stout Buckeyes offense at bay for the majority of last week’s game. That type of production went noticed, as Cichy has received player of the week honors from the Big Ten and Lott IMPACT Foundation.
Cichy has earned the Lott IMPACT Player of the Week twice this season. The 6-foot-2, 223-pound force on the Badgers’ defense leads the team with 50 tackles.
“In recognition of Cichy’s performance, the Pacific Club IMPACT Foundation, sponsors of the Lott IMPACT Trophy, will make a $1,000 donation to the general scholarship fund at Wisconsin,” a statement read on the award’s website.
