PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Three members of the Plymouth State College football team have been recognized by the Freedom Football Conference for their efforts in last Saturday’s 24-10 victory over Rensselaer last Saturday in Troy, N.Y.
Junior DB Mike Pelletier (Concord, NH) was selected FFC Defensive Player of the Week, and sophomore WR Nate Sergent (Gardiner, Maine) and freshman KR Uriah Davis (Derry, NH) were named to the FFC Weekly Honor Roll.
A 6’1”, 205-pound safety, Pelletier recorded his first two interceptions of the season against Rensselaer. He also shared the team lead in tackles with 11, including seven unassisted stops. He led a Panther defense that limited the Engineers passing game to 64 yards (18 attempts, five completions, four PSC interceptions).
A 5’10”, 180-pound transfer from the University of Maine, Sergent caught a pair of touchdown passes in his PSC debut. He finished with four receptions for 73 yards, and second-half scores from four and 36 yards out. His first TD, on fourth and goal from the four yard line on the opening drive of the second half, put PSC ahead 17-7. His fourth-quarter TD provided the game’s final margin as Sergent ripped the ball from the defender’s hands in the end zone.
A 5’11”, 175-pound rookie defensive back/kick returner, Davis averaged 44 yards on a pair of kick-off returns in his collegiate debut. His 59-yard return down the right sideline on the opening kick-off of the second half set up a PSC touchdown, and he later added a 29-yard kick return. In PSC’s pre-season scrimmage at St. Anselm, Davis returned an interception 98 yards for a touchdown.
PSC, 1-0, plays the 2000 home opener at Currier Field this Saturday (Sept. 16) against SUNY College at Brockport. Kick-off is set for 12 noon.
