New England D3 Football Teams Of 2018

NS Teams Of 2018

By NoontimeSports | @NoontimeSports 

Earlier this week, SB Nation posted its college football ‘Teams of 2018 for all 50 states,’ including six teams that represented our New England region.

MIT was tabbed the team of the year from Massachusetts, while Salve Regina represented Rhode Island and Middlebury College secured the nod for Vermont.

This particular post had us thinking who would we pick as our 2018 New England D3 Football Teams of the Year?

Well, we gave it some thought and have provided the answers below!

Let us know what you think by posting a comment or sending us a tweet to @NoontimeSports or @Noontime_FB. 


Connecticut Team of the Year: Trinity College. Once again, the Bantams captured the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) crown with an 8-1 record. They should once again be the team to beat next fall.

Connecticut Honorable Mentions: Coast Guard Academy and Western Connecticut. 

Maine Team of the Year: Husson University. In his final years with the Eagles, coach Gabby Price guided the Green and Gold to an Eastern Collegiate Football Conference (ECFC) crown, as well as a second-straight appearance in the NCAA Tournament.

Maine Honorable Mentions: Colby College. 

Massachusetts Team of the Year: MIT. In his first year as head coach, Brian Bubna guided the Engineers to their first-ever New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) title, as well as an appearance in the NCAA Tournament. The Engineers finished its 2018 campaign 9-1 and 6-1 in league play.

Massachusetts Honorable Mentions: Amherst College, Bridgewater State, Endicott College, Framingham State, Springfield College, Tufts University and Western New England. 

New Hampshire Team of the Year: Plymouth State. The Panthers are the lone New England D3 team in the Granite State, so they automatically receive our special honor. Plymouth State concluded its past campaign 6-4 overall and 5-3 in the Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference (MASCAC). Their signature win of the 2018 season came on a rainy day in Framingham last October.

Rhode Island Team of the Year: Salve Regina. Similar to Plymouth State, Salve Regina is the lone D3 team in the Ocean State, so they get the nod from us as well like they did from SB Nation. Coach Kevin Gilmartin‘s unit overcame a 2-3 start to finish the 2018 season with a 7-4 record. They secured a spot in one of the three New England Bowl games following an exciting win in November over Endicott College.

Vermont Team of the Year: Middlebury College. The Panthers secured the nod from SB Nation and now us, too, after for posting the best record among all three teams in the Green Mountain State. Their biggest win from 2018 came last October when Will Jernigan led the Blue and White to a 21-10 win at Williams College.

Vermont Honorable Mention: Norwich University.
