Leddy's 45-yard TD reception voted league's top play of week eight
PLYMOUTH, N.H. – For the third time this season, Plymouth State University received the most votes in the Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference (MASCAC) Football Fan Play of the Week voting, which runs from Monday to Wednesday at noon each week during the football season.
For the second straight week, Plymouth State and Western Connecticut State jumped out to a fast lead. The Panthers overtook the Colonials on Tuesday with a huge push in the voting and it stayed that way until voting closed Wednesday. Plymouth State finished with 70 percent of the votes, while Western Connecticut was next with 24 percent. Framingham State and Worcester State were also nominees this week.
In the week eight winning play, Plymouth State junior quarterback Zack Edwards (Brookfield, Mass.) steps back and tosses a quick pass to senior Colin Leddy (Natick, Mass.) who then avoids not one, not two, but three defenders on his way down the sideline for the 45-yard touchdown in the Panthers' 40-14 victory over Massachusetts Maritime Academy. It was the longest reception of the 6-2 receiver's career, and his first career TD. See video of the play below.
