Rocky Hill, Conn. native recorded four tackles in Western New England's 45-0 win at Becker on Saturday
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (October 22, 2017) – Freshman linebacker Ricky Montalvo (Rocky Hill, Conn.) of the Western New England University football team has been selected as the Commonwealth Coast Football (CCC Football) Defensive Rookie of the Week, the league office announced on Sunday.
Montalvo recorded four tackles, including one for a loss of two yards, on Saturday in Western New England's 45-0 shutout victory at Becker. The freshman contributed to a dominant Golden Bear defensive effort that limited Becker to 117 yards of total offense (2.3 yards per play), forced nine punts, and allowed the Hawks to advance past midfield on just one of their 11 possessions.
Western New England (5-2, 2-0 CCC Football), which has won four consecutive games since starting the season 1-2, returns home next Saturday for a key conference showdown with Salve Regina University at 1 p.m.
