PSU Football players earn MASCAC honors

Szulc, Shea selected to Weekly Honor Roll

            PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Following a thrilling win at Framingham State on Saturday, a pair of Plymouth State University football players were recognized by the Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference (MASCAC).

            Juniors Jacob Szulc (Concord, N.H.) and Matt Shea (Windham, N.H.) were selected to the MASCAC Football Weekly Honor Roll after their contributions to the Panthers' 29-28 win over the Rams.

            A 6-2 wide receiver, Szulc had a career day after hauling in four catches for a career-high 149 yards. One play after falling behind 20-13 in the fourth quarter, his 80-yard TD reception down the left sideline pulled the Panthers even. It was the third 100-yard receiving game of Szulc's career and the most receiving yards for a Panthers' receiver since the 2015 season.

            A 5-8 defensive back, Shea led the Panthers with a team-high eight tackles (six solo). His biggest contribution came on the Rams' second to last play from scrimmage. On third and 19 from PSU's 41-yard line, Shea knocked an FSU receiver out of bounds at the 35-yard line forcing a Hail Mary attempt as opposed to a field goal try with less than 20 seconds to play.

            It was the first weekly honor for Szulc, while Shea picks up his second weekly recognition of the season.

            Plymouth State (3-3, 2-3 MASCAC) returns home for another league contest on Saturday (Oct. 20). The Panthers host Massachusetts Maritime Academy at Currier Field with a 1:00 p.m. kickoff.
