Football Friday: Revisiting Framingham State’s 2012 Campaign

By Matt Noonan 

Happy Friday, everyone! 

And welcome to our second installment of ‘Football Friday,’ a post where we revisit stories, teams, coaches, and student-athletes that we have covered over the past decade.  

Today, we’re jumping back to 2012 to highlight a Framingham State University football team that not only won the New England Football Conference (NEFC) championship against Salve Regina University but also advanced to its first-ever NCAA D-III Tournament. 

Catching Up With Mass. Maritime Academy’s Kyle Johnston


Last week, Kyle Johnston received some exciting news. 

The Massachusetts Maritime Academy senior, who has been spotted on the gridiron for the past four years, was named the Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference (MASCAC) Scholar-Athlete of the Year. Framingham State University senior Mary Kate O’Day was also honored by the conference, being named the female scholar-athlete of the year. 

Family, Motivation Fueled Bridgewater State’s Victoria McDonough


Victoria McDonough will always remember the “good times” with the Bridgewater State University women’s lacrosse team: dinners with teammates, spring break trips, and wins, of course. But she will also remember being a part of a family – “We really grew closer and closer every day,” said McDonough.  

This family – the Bridgewater State women’s lacrosse program – was instrumental in helping the Marshfield, Massachusetts native flourish on the lacrosse field, including as a first-year student-athlete, who was named Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference (MASCAC) Rookie of the Week four times.

The Berlin, Massachusetts native averaged a career-bests in points per game (17.9), rebounds (8.5), and assists (3.1) while leading the Rams to their first-ever Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference (MASCAC) Tournament Championship with a 66-51 win over Worcester State.
