This season, Noontime Sports will select one player for our three weekly honors: offensive, defensive and special teamer of the week.
The ‘Players of the Week’ post will be published every Monday throughout the season.
Offensive Player of the Week: Adam Wojenski (Framingham State | Quarterback | Stratford, Conn.): Wojenski helped the Rams erase a 13-point deficit last Saturday en route to an exciting 39-33 win over UMass Dartmouth.
The Stratford, Connecticut native, who was named this week’s New England Football Writers Division II/III Golden Helmet, amassed 475 yards of total offense, including 422 passing yards on 14 of 25 completions and five touchdowns. His longest score – a 97-yard strike to classmate Jacob Maher – established a new program record. The touchdown also evened the score at 26-26 with 3:20 remaining in the third quarter.
Wojenski also rushed for a team-high 53 yards on 11 carries to bump his season rushing total to 191 yards.
The 422 passing yards and five touchdowns were season-bests for the fourth year signal-caller, who has completed 75 of 143 passes in four games for 1,068 yards and eight touchdowns.
Defensive Player of the Week: Colin McCabe (Mass. Maritime Academy | Defensive Line | Dartmouth, Mass.): McCabe stuffed the stat sheet last Saturday against Worcester State by recording eight total tackles, including four tackles for a loss of 30 yards and three sacks for a loss of 25 yards.
Additionally, McCabe scooped two fumbles as the Buccaneers defense concluded their week five tilt with the Lancers by tallying 14 tackles for a loss of 75 yards, four forced fumbles, and three fumble recoveries.
The third-year defensive lineman has recorded 25 total tackles this season, including 16 solo stops.
Special Teamer of the Week: Nick DiCairano (Endicott College | Kicker | Trumbull, Conn.): Nick DiCairano recorded 12 points off six kicks last weekend as Endicott College captured its second-straight Commonwealth Coast Football (CCC) victory of the 2019 season.
DiCairano connected on all three extra points while booting a trio of field goals, including a career and season-long 47-yard kick.
Through five contests this season, DiCairano has tallied 41 points off 29 kicks, including six field goals.
