Eagles Sweep ECFC Awards
Husson University football sweeps the Eastern Collegiate Football Conference (ECFC) weekly awards with Solomon Hassen, Derek Barden and Quan Soyini picking up the honors.
The Eagles pounded Castleton 48-0 Saturday to get to the brink of another ECFC title with a 5-0 record (6-2 overall).
Hassen, a freshman RB, ran for four TDs and 152 yards to win Offensive Player of the Week.
Barden, a sophomore DL, led the Eagles with 10 tackles and had two sacks. He also forced a fumble as the Husson defense gave up just 131 total yards. He wins Defensive Player of the Week.
Soyini, a senior DB, wins Special Teams Player of the Week for a 68-yard punt return. In fact, he set a school record with 147 yards worth of punt returns. Soyini recovered his own force fumble.
NOTE: The Eagles play their final ECFC conference game this Saturday when they host Gallaudet University (Washington D.C.). Husson moves to the Commonwealth Coast Conference next year. A win Saturday gives the Eagles the conference championship and an automatic bid to the NCAAs. Live coverage of the game starts at noon on Sports Radio 92.9 The Ticket.
