Weekly Honors

November 3rd, 1997 by Adam

PLYMOUTH, N.H. – A pair of Plymouth State College football players have been named to the Freedom Football Conference Weekly Honor Roll for their bright spots in an otherwise dismal 19-0 loss last Saturday to the Coast Guard Academy.

Senior linebacker Rocky Criscone (Burnt Hills, NY) and sophomore wide receiver Charlie Schubert (Manchester, NH/Central) are this week’s FFC honor roll selections from Plymouth State.

Criscone, a 6’0″, 206-pound linebacker, backboned a Panther defense that limited Coast Guard to 260 yards of offense. He made 10 tackles (seven unassisted), including three in the Bears’ backfield. He had one pass breakup, and made a key stop for minus three yards in the second quarter when Coast Guard went for it on fourth-down-and one at the Plymouth State 19 yard line.

Schubert, a 5’10″ sophomore receiver, had the best game of his young career. He posted career-highs of 10 catches for 111 yards, the highest individual totals for PSC this season. Schubert, who also returned a kick-off 23 yards, leads Plymouth State this season with 26 catches and 364 yards. He is rank in a tie for sixth in the FFC in receptions and eighth in receiving yards.

The loss to Coast Guard will likely drop Plymouth State from its spot at the top of the ECAC Division III New England poll. PSC, 6-2 overall and 4-1 in the FFC, needs help to achieve a share of the FFC title or receive an NCAA berth. The Panthers still have their eyes on an ECAC post-season bid.

The Panthers wrap up the regular season with a pair of road games – this Saturday (Nov. 8) at non-conference Curry College (12:00 p.m.) and next week (Nov. 15) at FFC foe WPI (1:00 p.m.).
