MASCAC Honors for two PSU Football players

Hamilton, Martin named to Weekly Honor Roll

            PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Two members of the Plymouth State University football team were among those recognized after the Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference (MASCAC) released its first weekly report.

            Junior running back David Hamilton (West Deptford, N.J.) and sophomore kicker Jeremy Martin (Charlton, Mass.) were both named to the MASCAC Football Weekly Honor Roll after their performances in Saturday's season-opening, 38-0 win over Castleton University.

            Hamilton cleared the century mark with 109 yards on the ground on 22 carries (5.0 yds/carry), including a 15-yard TD run late in the second quarter as the Panthers extended their lead to 14-0. He added a 38-yard touchdown reception a few minutes later to push the margin to 21-0 at the half.

            Martin also had a strong game averaging 62.0 yards per kickoff (434 total kickoff yards), including a pair of touchbacks. Although the PSU offense wasn't forced to punt often, he totaled 105 yards on three punts (35.0 yards/punt), while pinning the Spartans inside their own 20-yard line once.

            Plymouth State (1-0) will take advantage of an early bye week to prepare for the MASCAC opener on Sept. 15. The Panthers will welcome rival Western Connecticut State to Currier Field for a 1:00 p.m. kickoff.
