Castellucci leads Panthers to shutout of Bridgewater State
PLYMOUTH, N.H. – The starting middle linebacker on the Plymouth State University football team was honored by the New England Football Conference Monday for his performance in last Saturday’s victory over Bridgewater State University.
Senior linebacker Brian Castellucci (Derry, N.H./Pinkerton) was named to the NEFC Weekly Honor Roll for the second time this season. He led Plymouth State’s defense in a 17-0 shutout over previously undefeated Bridgewater State as the Panthers limited the Bears to 152 yards, more than 150 yards below their season average.
A 5'10", 204-pound co-captain, Castellucci made nine total tackles, including seven solo stops and one for lost yardage. He led PSU to its first whitewash since blanking UMass Dartmouth last September, handing the Bears their first shutout defeat since an 18-0 home loss to Worcester State on Nov. 2, 2002. A First Team All-NEFC selection a year ago, Castellucci was also named to the NEFC Honor Roll two weeks ago after PSU’s season-opening victory over Castleton.
The Panthers, 2-1 overall, travel to UMass Dartmouth this Saturday for the first NEFC Boyd Division game of the season (12:00 p.m.)
