NEWMAC Football Defensive Athlete of the Week

Nick Giorgio, Springfield (Sr., DE, Cumberland, R.I.)

Nick led a defensive effort that resulted in Springfield's first shutout of the season and second in its last five games dating back to last season as the Pride blanked Kean, 42-0. Giorgio, who was tabbed the 2018 Preseason National Defensive Player of the Year, totaled 10 tackles, five solo and five assisted, 2.5 tackles-for-loss, a sack, forced fumble, and pass break up. His efforts on the line spearheaded a unit that limited Kean to 10 first downs, 157 yards of total offense and just three yards per play, as well as 3-for-12 on third down conversions. Springfield, which has won its last 12 regular season games, is allowing just 10.5 points per game this season.
