The 6-8 middle blocked played a major role in three victories last week, with wins over SUNY New Paltz, No. 7 Nazareth and No. 10 Vassar at the Vassar College Invitational.
This marks the third time this season that a Springfield College men's volleyball player has earned the award. Alistair Matthews won the award last week and Angel Perez was honored in February after leading the Pride to its first-ever Volleyball Hall of Fame Morgan Classic.
After a sweep of the Hawks where Lindenhurst, N.Y. product hit .714 (five kills) and recorded nine blocks, the junior was dominant in his following two matches. Against Nazareth, he nailed 10 kills hitting .750 with eight blocks. In the final match of the weekend against Vassar, the junior registered 16 kills, eight blocks and a .667 attack percentage to be named MVP of the Invitational.
For the week, he averaged 4.09 points and 2.27 blocks per set while hitting an astounding .698. Springfield is in the midst of one of the best regular seasons in program history. The Pride has rattled off 13 straight wins and, with a 25-5 record, has matched the most wins in a season since the 1974-75 campaign.
