Becker College freshman defensive back Materrence Holloway (Tampa, Fla. / Hillsborough Sports Management) has been named the Commonwealth Coast Football (CCF) Defensive Rookie of the Week for the week ending September 9, 2018.
Holloway helped spark Becker's near-upset of visiting Worcester State University on Saturday in the Hawk's home opener, with two giant plays. First in the second quarter, Holloway recovered a botched snap on a Lancer field goal attempt and returned it 75 yards for the Hawk's first touchdown of the season. Later in the same quarter, Holloway stalled a Worcester State drive with a key interception. Additionally, Holloway had four tackles (three solo, one assisted) and one pass breakup.
Becker football is back on the field next Saturday, September 15th, when they host another crosstown rival in Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) with a scheduled 3:00 p.m. kickoff.
