NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA-Senior defensive back Joune Fraser (Barnstable, MA/Barnstable HS/Erie CC) has been honored by the Eastern College Athletic Conference.
Fraser, who was honored earlier this week by the New England Football Conference, has been named ECAC Division III Northeast Defensive Player of the Week.
Fraser led UMass Dartmouth last week with 11 tackles, including eight solo stops. He also broke up a pass, and picked up a fumble and returned it 34 yards for the game-winning touchdown with nine seconds remaining in the third quarter.
"Joune is having an outstanding season," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Mark Robichaud. "He has made some huge plays this year, none bigger than the 88 yard fumble return to win the game this past Saturday. Joune is a leader on our defense and I expect he will have a huge impact on our continued success as a football team."
The Corsairs will return to action Saturday at MIT.
