Coast Guard's Jones, Springfield's Giorgio, and Merchant Marine's Vitelli Tabbed Football Athletes of the Week

NEWMAC Football Offensive Athlete of the Week

Ryan Jones, Coast Guard (Jr., QB – Punxsutawney, Pa.)

Jones was outstanding for the Bears as he completed a career-high 30 passes and was 30-for-37 for 251 yards and the two touchdowns passing and another rushing as he accounted for all three Coast Guard touchdowns in the 24-10 win over WPI.

NEWMAC Football Defensive Athlete of the Week

Nick Giorgio, Springfield (Sr., DE – Cumberland, R.I.)

Giorgio was dominant again as he powered the Springfield defense to a tremendous outing in the Pride's 44-7 victory over Maine Maritime on Saturday. Thanks to his play, which consisted of five tackles, four of which were for a loss of 15 yards, as well as two sacks, a fumble recovery and a forced fumble, the Pride held the Mariners to just 48 yards of total offense for the entire game, including just four rushing yards. 

 

NEWMAC Football Special Teams Athlete of the Week

Joe Vitelli, Merchant Marine (Jr., WR – Warrington, Pa.)

Vitelli was a key part of Merchant Marine's win over Catholic, as the junior returned two kickoffs to total 29 yards, including a long return of 15 yards. Vitelli also brought back two punts to total 20 yards, with his longest return totalling 12 yards.
