Minneapolis, MN --- WPI senior Sam Casey (Winchester, MA) has been elevated to the D3football.com Team of the Week. He is the first Boynton Hiller since kicker Spencer Herrington (2018 – Week 9), and the first WPI safety since Jason Lamb (2016 – Week 6), to claim the honor.
Casey rolled up 11 tackles (eight solo) with one for loss, a forced fumble and a 46-yard interception return in a 35-21 win at Springfield. The victory over the Pride is just the third all-time in the 36-game series for Engineers.
WPI, ranked first in both the the Grinold Chapter New England Division III Top 10 and Noontime Sports Top 20 for the second consecutive week, is now 4-0 for the eighth time in the program's 130-year history and just the second time in 36 seasons.
The Crimson and Gray host Maine Maritime Saturday at 1pm as part of Homecoming Weekend.
