FFC Honors for Three Panthers

October 5th, 1998 by Adam

PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Three Plymouth State College football standouts who were key players in the Panthers’ road victory over Western Connecticut last Saturday have been recognized for their strong individual performances.

The three sophomores — running back Jeff Parker (Norwich, NY), defensive back Jason Marcell (Stoughton, MA) and punter Robert Maylone (Manchester, NH) were all named to the Freedom Football Conference Weekly Honor Roll.

PSC, #2 in the ECAC Division III New England poll, is now 4-0 overall as a result of the 19-9 win over Western Connecticut. PSC moves to 2-0 in the FFC, with two more tough conference road games the next two Saturdays against Kings Point and Springfield.

Parker has rushed for over 100 yards and two touchdowns in his last three games, and has been named to the FFC Weekly Honor Roll all three weeks. Parker finished the day with 105 yards on 28 carries and rushing touchdowns from three and five yards out. He shares the conference lead in scoring with 9.0 points per game, and is ranked fourth in the FFC in rushing with 90.5 yards per game.

Marcell took the life out of the Colonials with a big interception with less than four minutes to play in the fourth quarter. WCSU, trailing 19-9 and at the PSC nine-yard line, had a second and goal when quarterback Tim Uhl’s pass in the end zone was picked off. Marcell finished the afternoon with three tackles and three pass break-ups, and he also intercepted WCSU’s conversion attempt after the Colonials’ TD that kept PSC’s lead to two possessions.

Maylone also had a big day punting for the Panthers. He had a 40.4 yard average on 10 punts, including a pair of 54-yarders and a 49-yard boot. Two of his punts were downed inside the WCSU 20-yard line. Maylone is third in the FFC in punting average with a 36.8 yard average. As a defensive back, he also contributed four tackles and one fumble recovery.

PSC will continue its road trip this Saturday (Oct. 10) at Kings Point (3-1, 2-1 FFC). The game time for Saturday’s game has been moved to 2:00 p.m. at Captain Tomb Field.
