November 3, 2003


MIDDLEBURY, Vt. -Middlebury College football players Mike Keenan (Rutland, Vt.) and Scott Secor (Lake Odessa, Mich.) have been honored by the NESCAC. Keenan was named the league's offensive player of the week, while Secor was named the rookie of the week. Keenan also earned ECAC Player of the Week honors. The duo helped lead the Panthers to a 55-31 win over Hamilton in the team's final home game of the season last Saturday. Middlebury wraps up its season on November 8th at Tufts.

Keenan had a career day at quarterback, breaking the school record with five touchdown passes in the contest, despite not playing the end of the third and entire fourth quarter. His record-setting day ended with him completing 22 of 32 passes for 343 yards, including going 12 for his first 13 at one point in the contest, for 173 yards. Keenan helped the team to break the school mark of 398 yards passing in a game as well as six touchdown passes and 611 yards of total offense.

On the other side of the ball, Secor was steady once again as he made 11 tackles, intercepted a pass, had three pass break-ups and one tackle for loss. The rookie has been doing it all season long as he now leads Middlebury with 64 tackles and three interceptions on the season.
