ECFC Weekly Honors for November 14, 2011

OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK

Johrone Bunch, Mount Ida
(Sr, RB – Meriden, CT)
On senior day, Mount Ida College football senior running back Johrone Bunch (Meriden, CT/F.T. Maloney) haunted visiting Eastern Collegiate Football Conference (ECFC) member Castleton State College with 219 rushing yards and four touchdowns en route to a 54-34 league victory Saturday afternoon on a blustery day in Newton, Massachusetts. Bunch also tied his own record for rushing touchdowns in a season (13) that he’s conquered three times throughout his career (2009, 2010, and 2011).

DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK

Ernest Wiggins, Husson
(So, DL – Bridgeport, CT)
Ernest Wiggins led the Husson defense with 15 solo tackles in the Eagles’ nail-biting defeat to Anna Maria in the final game of the season for both teams. Wiggins also notched a sack and a tackle for loss, and was credited with a safety when his pressure forced the visiting quarterback to ground the ball intentionally from inside his own endzone.

 SPECIAL TEAMS PLAYER OF THE WEEK

Madison Leary, Maritime (N.Y.)
(Sr, K/P – Tavares, Fla./Tavares)
Leary was a perfect 3-for-3 in PATs for the Privateers in their 21-14 road victory at Gallaudet on Friday night. He was also instrumental in setting up Maritime’s first score, as he kicked a surprise on-side kick to start the second half and then recovered that kick to give the Privateers possession. Maritime would go on to score on that drive. On three kickoffs, the 6-4, 205-pounder averaged 51.3 yards, while also averaging 34.0 yards on four punts and landing three of the punts inside the Bison’s 20-yard line. Leary finishes his collegiate career with virtually all of the Privateers’ program kicking records.

 ROOKIE OF THE WEEK

Stephan Dance, Husson
(Fr, LB – New London, CT)
Stephan Dance capped off his impressive rookie season for the Eagles, leading the team with 16 total tackles with 13 solo tackles, bringing his season total to 102, good for second in the ECFC. The first year linebacker also added a pair of tackles for loss on the day for Husson.
