Bates Named Defensive Player of Week - Downtown with Rich Kimball

Bates Named Defensive Player of Week

The Colonial Athletic Association has named Maine defensive end Trevor Bates the defensive player of the week for his efforts in the Black Bears’ 23-10 victory over Stony Brook. The senior from Westbrook had seven tackles, two for losses, 1.5 sacks, and returned a fumble for a key Maine touchdown. Bates is the second Black Bear to receive the honor, after fellow lineman Pat Ricard was selected for his performance at Albany.

Maine is 3-4 on the season but 3-1 in the CAA, which has them tied for third place in the league. The Black Bears have a crucial game this Saturday night in Philadelphia, as they battle the Villanova Wildcats.
