CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – The New England Football Conference announced that junior linebacker Will Gibson was named Defensive Player of the Week after pacing a terrific defensive effort in MIT’s victory over Mass Maritime on Saturday. The third-year starter from Natick, Mass., earned additional plaudits from the ECAC as the Northeast Division III Defensive Player of the Week.
Gibson closed out Saturday’s non-conference win with a career-high 10 tackles (eight solo), three tackles for loss, one sack, a forced fumble, and a fumble recovery.
Tech’s 42-14 victory against the Buccaneers resulted in the Engineers’ first 2-0 start since 2004.
