Player Perspective: Ricky Goodson (Amherst College)

By NoontimeSports.com | @NoontimeSports 

Ricky Goodson has been a player to watch this fall on the Amherst College football team. 

Last week, Goodson turned in his best outing of the 2019 season against Bowdoin College when the third-year defensive back posted five total tackles, including four solo stops and one tackle for a loss of 12 yards. Additionally, he forced one fumble, which resulted in a touchdown and registered his first interception of the season. 

His effort against the Polar Bears certainly helped the Mammoths bounce back after a heartbreaking defeating to Middlebury College in double-overtime but also earn him the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) Defensive Player of the Week honor.
