Weekly Honors

November 10th, 1997 by Adam

PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Four Plymouth State College football standouts who were key players in the Panthers’ 42-0 victory Saturday at Curry have been recognized for their outstanding individual performances.

Sophomore kick returner Brent Bardellini (Milford, MA) has been named Freedom Football Conference Special Teams Player of the Week, while senior running back Jose Raymond (Wakefield, MA) was selected to the ECAC/Budget New England Region Honor Roll and the FFC Honor Roll. Senior linebacker Rocky Criscone (Burnt Hills, NY) and sophomore linebacker Sans Millbury (Danvers, MA) were also recognized for their efforts, earning a spot on the FFC Honor Roll.

Bardellini returned two punts for 82 yards, including a 54-yard return for a touchdown, and caught two passes for 40 yards. The return was his second for a touchdown this season and fifth of his career. He finished the afternoon with 140 all-purpose yards. Bardellini ranks third in the FFC in all-purpose yards (110.8 yds./gm) and first in punt returns (11.0 yds/carry).

Raymond bounced back from a sub-par game against Coast Guard to rush for a career high 146 yards and three touchdowns (32, 7, 1) on 17 carries. Raymond remains the leader in the FFC rushing standings (89.8 yds/gm), while ranking third in scoring (7.3 pts/gm), and fifth in all-purpose yards (99.7 yds/gm).

Criscone made six tackles (four solo) with two tackles for loss (8,3 yards) and intercepted a pass (18-yard return), while Millbury collected six tackles including one for loss (5 yards) and one sack to lead a Plymouth State defense that allowed Curry just 64 yards in total offense.

PSC’s defense continues to be the conference leader in three of the four team defensive categories — scoring (10.7 pts/gm), rushing (87.1 yds/gm), and total defense (214.6 yds/gm).

PSC is 7-2 overall, 4-1 in the FFC, and ranked #2 in this week’s ECAC Division III New England poll. The Panthers close out their regular season Saturday (11/15) in a FFC game against WPI (1:00 p.m.).
