South Easton, Mass. (September 28) -- Freshman defensive back Ethan Sylvain (East Montpelier, Vt.) has been named as the Northeast-10 Freshman of the Week for the second time this season. In all, Saint Anselm has won four of the five weekly freshman awards this season.
Sylvain was second on the team this week in tackles with nine, including seven solo stops. He also had one tackle for a loss, one sack and his second-straight two-interception performance. Both of Sylvain's interceptions ended potential Merrimack scoring drives in the red zone, including one in the end zone. This was his second straight two-interception game and his two picks is a single-game school mark.
The Hawks are now 2-3 overall and 1-2 in the Northeast-10. The team travels to Springfield, Mass., to take on American International beginning at 1 p.m. at John Homer Miller Field.
