Edgar Osols Earns New England Football Conference Honors

Oct. 3, 2011

NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA-UMass Dartmouth junior kicker Edgar Osols (Summit, NJ/Summit HS) has been honored by the New England Football Conference.

Osols has been honored as the New England Football Conference's Special Teams Player of the Week. It's the second time that Osols has earned the honor-he was named last year. It's also the second time that a Corsair has been honored by the NEFC this season. Freshman linebacker Alex Kershaw (Foxboro, MA/Oliver Ames HS) was named Defensive Player of the Week in the first week of the season.

Osols capped the game-winning drive when he drilled a 45-yard field goal with 21 seconds left to lift UMass Dartmouth to a 31-29 victory over MIT Saturday. It was the second time that Osols has kicked a 45-yard field goal to win a game. He also punted four times for a 33.5 yard average, with one punt being downed at the MIT one-yard line to help set up a touchdown. He also kicked off six times for a 55.8 yard average. "Edgar capped an incredible come from behind win on Saturday," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Mark Robichaud. "I never had any doubt that Edgar was going to make the kick even from 45 yards out; it would have been good from 55. He is an outstanding kicker, he does it all for us, he kicks off, kicks PAT's and field goals, punts and even plays free safety on our scout team. Edgar has worked very hard to become as good as he is."

.The Corsairs will take a 3-2 record (2-0 in Boyd Division play) into Saturday's game at Salve Regina.
