Wednesday--July 8th, 2015


The UMass website has a story about Jovan Santos-Knox being named to the Chuck Bednarik Award Watch list. That's the National Defensive player-of-the-Year folks.

Jovan's totals for 2014 were 12-12 GP-GS 53 UT 90 AT 143 TT 8.5-30 TFL 2.0-17 SACKS 6 BU 6 PD 3 FF.

Santos-Knox broke Kole Ayi's single season TT 1998 record (15 games) of 140.5.

Matty Vautour has a post about Santos-Knox.

Alex Alvarado mentions Jovan is the only MAC player on the Bednarik Award Watch list.

Dan Malone also has a story about Santos-Knox.

The return of Shane Huber should give the Minutemen one of the better inside linebacker tandems in the MAC. If Kassan Messiah can stay healthy, he and Trey Seals should be effective at OLB. Since our move to FBS, the defense has had a bend-but-don't-break mode of operation. Maybe in 2015 the defense start to be a force.
