Sophomore linebacker Michael Bianco (Manorville, N.Y. / Eastport-South Manor) of the Becker College football team has been named the Becker College Athlete of the Week for the week ending September 3rd, 2017.
Bianco recorded a school-record 22 tackles in Becker's 28-0 loss to visiting MIT on Friday night. Three of those tackles were for a loss while one was a sack on the quarterback.
Bianco's 22 tackle performance was not only a Becker single-game record, it was the highest total of the week for all of Division III.
Bianco also earned Noontime Sports New England D3 Football Honor Roll accolades for the same period.
Football is back on the field on Friday when they play at Worcester State. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:00 p.m.
