Freshman linebacker Marshell Ricketts (Far Rockaway, N.Y. / Queens H.S. for IRT) of the Becker College football team has been named the Commonwealth Coast Football (CCF) Defensive Rookie of the Week for the week ending September 23, 2018.
Ricketts made a huge play on the defensive end in Becker's homecoming game against Dean on Saturday, recovering a fumble in the end zone off a botched punt attempt for the Hawks' first touchdown of the contest.
The Hawks will rest next weekend, and return to the field the following Saturday (Oct. 6) when they head down to Salve Regina University for a 12:00 p.m. game. It will represent the Commonwealth Coast Football league opener for both teams.
