Former Middlesex football star Mike ’07 was named defensive player of the week by the New England Small College Athletic Conference for his outstanding performance against Bates College. Although Mike is starting his junior year at Amherst, a series of injuries have prevented him from ever playing in a collegiate game. Against Bates, Mike recorded seven tackles, three sacks, two forced fumbles and a blocked punt to help Amherst secure the 20-7 win.
Of his performance head Amherst football coach A.J. Mills says: “Mike’s had a tough run, but he’s responded unbelievably well. ..I’m so proud of him and what he’s done to play college ball. After the game, I told him he has a tough act to follow…his own.”
