Nichols College sophomore Alex DiNardo of Wellington and junior Dylan Rimsky of Denville, N.J., have been named to the New England Football Conference (NEFC) Honor Roll.
DiNardo racked up a team-high 11 tackles — including a pair of sacks — as the Bison defense held the Panthers to just 164 yards of total offense, which is the fewest a Nichols defense has allowed since surrendering 146 yards to Salve Regina University on Nov. 6, 2010.
Rimsky caught eight passes for 155 yards and a touchdown in the Bison’s 20-14 overtime loss at Plymouth State on Saturday, Sept. 29. His 41-yard touchdown reception with 2:23 remaining in the fourth quarter tied the game at 14 and forced overtime.
“It has been great to watch both Dylan and Alex play and develop this year,” Bison head coach Kevin Loney said. “In the last few games, both have been very sound in their technique and fundamentals, and it has paid off for them.”
