SPRINGFIELD, Mass. – Senior quarterback Alec Coleman (Arlington, Mass.) of the Western New England University football team has been named the Commonwealth Coast Football Offensive Player of the Week for the sixth time in his career, the league office announced on Sunday.
Coleman earns this honor for the second time this season following his impressive performance in Western New England's 45-14 victory over Husson at Golden Bear Stadium on Saturday.
The senior signal caller scored four touchdowns in the first half alone, including one passing score as Coleman completed 12-of-17 attempts (70.6%) for 191 yards. He also found the end zone twice on the ground, rushing five times for 42 yards. Coleman's last touchdown came on a trick play late in the second half, as he was on the receiving end of a 13-yard pass from junior wide receiver Adam Razza.
Coleman, the 2018 CCC Football Offensive Player of the Year, earned weekly honors on four occasions during his junior campaign.
In eight games this season, he has completed 146-of-214 pass attempts (68.2%) for 1,974 yards, 16 touchdowns and five interceptions. He has also rushed 62 times for 304 yards (4.9 avg.) and nine touchdowns.
Western New England (9-1, 7-0 CCC Football), which captured its fifth consecutive conference championship this season, will make its sixth overall appearance in the NCAA Tournament next Saturday (11/23).
