PSU Football player earns MASCAC recognition

Shea selected to Weekly Honor Roll 

            PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Following a career game, the defensive captain of the Plymouth State University football team was selected for Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference (MASCAC) recognition with inclusion on its Weekly Honor Roll.

            Senior defensive back Matt Shea (Atkinson, N.H.) earned the honor after one of the best individual performances of his career. He made a career-high 15 tackles, including 11 solo stops, in Plymouth State's 21-14 loss at UMass Dartmouth in a battle of unbeaten teams on Saturday. He added a pass breakup and punt block on the day.

            Shea led a defensive unit that limited the Corsairs to nearly 100 yards of offense below their season average, while UMD's 21 points were less than half the 46 points per game the team entered with.

            He currently ranks second in the MASCAC with 35 total tackles and third in the league with 8.8 tackles per game, while his three pass breakups are tied for the fourth-most in the conference.

            Plymouth State (3-1, 1-1 MASCAC) returns to Currier Field for a Homecoming MASCAC contest against Fitchburg State on Saturday (Oct. 5) at 1:00 p.m. PSU will recognize its NCAA Tournament participants from the 2018-19 year during halftime.
