Senior running back Cam Cecchini has been named the CGASPORTS.COM Athlete of the Week presented by FirstCommand for his performance in the Bears 34-7 season-opening win over Alfred State on Thursday night.
Cecchini carried 11 times leading the team with career-high 71 yards and a pair touchdowns. He scored on runs of nine and one yard in the first quarter as Coast Guard scored touchdowns on its first three possessions of the game to take a 21-0 lead.
In the third quarter, Cecchini had a 96-yard touchdown run called back because of a holding penalty.
The Bears won the season opener for the third straight season and they are back in action on Saturday at Union at 1:00. Coast Guard will look to open the season with back-to-back wins for the first time since 2005.
