PLYMOUTH, N.H. – For the second consecutive week, the same two members of the Plymouth State College football team were honored by the Freedom Football Conference for their performances in last Saturday’s game.
PSC junior LB Chris Kelliher (Goffstown, NH/Trinity) and junior RB Russ Massahos (Windham, N.H.) were both named to the FFC Weekly Honor Roll. This marks the third time this season that they have been on the receiving end of FFC weekly honors.
Kelliher and Massahos were bright spots in a disappointing 27-23 non-conference loss to Bentley College last Saturday at Currier Field.
A 6’0”, 200-pound linebacker, Kelliher registered a team-high 12 tackles, including two unassisted and one tackle for loss. He continues to lead PSC in total tackles (83) and tackles for loss (9 for minus 30 yards), ranking among the FFC leaders in both categories. He is also tied for fourth in the FFC in fumbles (0.57 per game), having recovered three and forced one.
A 5’10”, 210-pound halfback, Massahos recorded 107 all-purpose yards and scored one touchdown against the Falcons. He gained 75 yards on the ground on 18 carries with one touchdown, and added 32 yards on seven receptions. He has been PSC’s top rusher and receiver the last two weeks, and leads the team for the season in rushing yards (459), receptions (24) and scoring (32 points on five TDs and one two-point conversion).
The Panthers make their final road trip of the season this Saturday with a visit to the Coast Guard Academy in New London, Conn., for a 1 p.m. FFC affair.
