2 football players are honored

NEFC honors two players for stellar show last Saturday

A pair of student-athletes from the MIT football team were honored for their play last Saturday by the New England Football Conference (NEFC) the league announced. Tucker T. Cheyne ’17 was selected as the Special Teams Player of the Week while Adis T. Ojeda ’19 was named the Rookie Offensive Player of the Week for their play against Becker College.

Cheyne had a record setting day for the Engineers, booting four field goals and a pair of extra points. His four field goals set a new single-game record, breaking his own school mark of three he kicked against Pomona-Pitzer in 2013. His 14 kicking points also broke his previous school record of 12, which he has done twice in his career.

Ojeda, MIT’s starter at running back, produced his first 100-yard rushing game of his career at Becker. He finished with 174 yards on 22 carries, the first Engineer freshman to run for 100+ yards since Justin R. Wallace ’15 accomplished the feat in 2011.
