Assumption Pregame Release and Game Notes
Tickets (Available Game Day):
The Game: Stonehill College looks to do its part in a scenario which could set up a rematch right back here next week for the NE-10 Championship as it visits Assumption College, ranked No. 21 in this week's D2football.com poll and receiving votes in the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) Division II poll, for the regular season finale for both at Multi-Sport Stadium this afternoon. The Skyhawks are looking to finish strong, having won two straight after a 35-24 victory over Saint Anselm last Saturday. The Greyhounds have clinched at least a share of their first Northeast-10 regular season championship and the right to host next week's NE-10 Championship with seven straight wins following a commanding 40-7 triumph over Bentley here last Friday night.
The Hall Calls: Stonehill held its 27th annual Athletic Hall of Fame induction last Friday night at Martin Institute. This year's class included football alum Leo Meehan '75, the President and CEO of W.B. Mason Company, former women's tennis coach Sandy Xenos, the 1990 and 1991 Men's Soccer Teams, field hockey and lacrosse two sport athlete and Academic All-American Amy Bartlett '02 and women's basketball Academic All-American Julie Stockwell '00.
Rookie of the Week: Freshman tight end Kaleb Lutton (Middletown, Conn.) has been named the Northeast-10 Rookie of the Week for the third time this season. Lutton had three receptions, all for touchdowns, for 25 yards in Stonehill's 35-24 victory over Saint Anselm in the "Battle for the Ol'Bronze Hawk" on Saturday. He dominated the red-zone with touchdown catches of four (twice) and 17 yards.. Lutton's first four yard score put the Skyhawks in front for good in the first quarter, while his 17-yard touchdown catch built an insurmountable 35-10 lead with a minute left in the third quarter. Lutton also earned NE-10 Rookie of the Week honors following another three touchdown afternoon at LIU Post in week four as well as after the Skyhawks week two win at Merrimack in which he caught two fourth quarter touchdowns in a comeback win.
Reading More Than the Playbook: Senior safety Anthony Masucci (East Haven, Conn.) has earned a spot on the CoSIDA Academic All-Super Region 1 first team, as selected by College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) members from the region for the second straight year it was announced on Thursday. Masucci, who has earned a 3.59 cumulative grade point average as a finance major at the College, is the first two-time first team Academic All-District selection and the third two-time Academic All-District honoree in program history overall, joining Kevin Bonnett '09 and Sean Donahue '08. Masucci, an NE-10 Academic All-Conference selection last season as well, was among a program-record three Academic All-District honorees last season, along with junior tight end Colin Smith (Ipswich, Mass.), who did not qualify this season due to missing games to injury. Masucci is now eligible to be selected to the Academic All-America team by CoSIDA's Academic All-America committee.
Mr. 2,000: Sophomore quarterback Matt Foltz (Mount Joy, Pa.) enters Saturday's game 190 passing yards shy of joining Logan Meyer '14 as the only two 2,000-yard passers in program history. Meyer passed for a program-record 2,266 yards in 2013 and 2,215 yards in 2012. Foltz ranks third among NE-10 leaders with 1,810 yards this season, ranking 24th nationally with 201.1 yards per game.
On The Mark: Senior kicker Steve Grzywacz (Manchester, N.H.) added to his record breaking career by becoming the program's all-time leading scorer with 205 points after his five successful PATs against Saint Anselm on Saturday. Grzywacz surpassed running back Eddie Vachon's '11 previous record of 204 points with his fifth point after on Saturday. Grzywaycz also holds career records for field goals made (32) and attempted (51) as well as PATs (109), while his 37 PATs in 2013 and 11 field goals made in 2011 are single-season marks.
