PSU Football players selected for MASCAC honors

Hamilton, Martin named to Weekly Honor Roll

            PLYMOUTH, N.H. – After wrapping up the Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference (MASCAC) season with an impressive win over Fitchburg State University on Saturday, two members of the Plymouth State University football team were honored by the league with weekly recognition.

            Junior David Hamilton (West Deptford, N.J.) and sophomore Jeremy Martin (Charlton, Mass.) were both selected to the MASCAC Football Weekly Honor Roll after their contributions to the Panthers' 28-0 shutout of the Falcons.

            Hamilton, a 5-7 running back, had 14 carries for 82 yards (5.9 avg) as Plymouth State relied on the ground game due to a driving rain, high winds and sloppy field conditions. Hamilton punched the ball in from 1 yard out late in the second quarter and added a 3-yard touchdown burst early in the third quarter. He added a 30-yard reception to set up his first TD run.

            Martin was superb in the difficult conditions. He pinned the Falcons inside the 20-yard line on both of his punts, converted all four of his PAT attempts and accumulated 288 kickoff yards (57.6 avg) despite the muddy field.

            It was the fourth weekly honor for Hamilton, while Martin picks up his third weekly recognition of the season.

            Plymouth State (6-3, 5-3 MASCAC) wraps up the regular season on Saturday (Nov. 10) with a non-conference game against Husson University. Prior to the noon kickoff the Panthers will honor the senior class, while also celebrating Salute the Troops weekend and Scouts' Day.
