Football's Donahoe '16 honored by NESCAC
Hamilton College punter/wide receiver Patrick Donahoe '16 (Mahopac, N.Y./Mahopac HS) was selected the NESCAC Special Teams Player of the Week on Oct. 4.
In Saturday's 15-10 setback against Wesleyan University, Donahoe averaged 42.0 yards on eight punts, including a career-long 71-yard boot in the fourth quarter. He landed three punts inside the Wesleyan 20 as the teams battled for field position in a game that was never separated by more than six points. He also caught a game-high six passes for 52 yards.
Donahoe is ranked fifth in the NESCAC with an average of 39.1 yards per punt. He leads the conference with 113 receiving yards per game and is tied for fourth with 6.0 receptions per contest.
Donahoe and the Continentals travel to Trinity College for a NESCAC game on Saturday, Oct. 10, at 1 p.m.
