October 16th, 2006 by Adam

PLYMOUTH, N.H. – A starting defensive back on the Plymouth State University football team was recognized Monday with selection to the New England Football Conference Weekly Honor Roll, his second such honor this season.

Sophomore safety Mike Lannon (Sharon, Mass.) was PSU’s representatives on this week’s NEFC Honor Roll after a strong performance in last Saturday’s 19-14 loss at Nichols. He received the same honor two weeks ago after a 19-18 victory over Western New England College.


A 5’11”, 189-pound DB, Lannon (left) made 11 tackles in PSU’s loss at Nichols, including nine solo stops and one tackle in the Bison backfield (-5 yards). He was one of the leaders of a Panther defense that held the Bison to 273 total yards, more than 40 yards less than their average.

Lannon has taken over the team lead in tackles with 38, along with three pass break-ups, one forced fumble and two fumble recoveries.

The Panthers, 2-4 overall and 2-4 in NEFC Boyd Division games, will be home this Saturday against three-time defending champion Curry (1:00 p.m.)
