BREAKING NEWS: Yetka, Zucconi named NJAC Players of the Week

September 6, 2009

Hot off the presses came an e-mail from conference commish Terry Small, releasing to a number of media affiliates its selections for NJAC Player of the Week.

Michael Yetka, whose 101 yards and two touchdowns carried the Lions to victory during its season debut, delivered the conference’s top offensive performance. At weeks’ end, he’s tied for the conference lead in points per game (12.0) and rushing touchdowns (two), while also ranking second in rushing yards (behind Riedrick Alceus of The College at Brockport, 114 yds against William Patterson).

Marc Zucconi also earned player of the week honors for serving double-duties as the team’s punter and kicker. Zucconi was perfect on PAT attempts Saturday (6/6), while also adding three points via an 18-yard field goal early in the third quarter. His profound contribution to the field position battle was certainly appreciated, as he averaged 40.0 yards per punt on two attempts–one of which sailed off of his foot 57 yards downfield.

Brockport linebacker Nathan Bull earned the conference’s weekly award for its top defensive performer, recording a career-high 17 tackles in a down to the wire victory against William Patterson, 22-19 (FG attempt converted with :11 remaining).

No nominations for offensive nor defensive rookie of the week were released in the report.
