NEWMAC Football Co-Defensive Athlete of the Week
Dereck Pacheco, WPI (Sr, DL, Barnstable, Mass.)
Pacheco amassed 10 tackles including eight solo stops, to go with a sack, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery, and a blocked PAT on special teams as the Engineers defeated Coast Guard for the program’s fifth consecutive win of the season. It is the longest streak since the 1993 Freedom Football Conference championship campaign. Personally, the senior now has 103 solo tackles, and 159 overall, to his credit.
