Keegan Named NJAC Football Special Teams Player of the Week

Montclair, NJ (10/16/11) – Senior punt returner Dan Keegan (Fairfield, NJ / Fairfield) was chosen as the NJAC Special Team's Player of the Week on Sunday. He became the third different Red Hawk to win the award this season and marked the fourth time in six weeks this year that Montclair claimed that honor from the conference.

Keegan earned the honor after helping No. 7 MSU stand as the only unbeaten NJAC team with a 20-0 conference win over rival William Paterson. On his first touch of the game, the reigning NJAC Special Teams Player of the Year returned a punt 53 yards to the WPU 26-yard line. On his very next attempt, he produced a 44-yard punt return which set up the Red Hawks’ first touchdown.

Keegan, who produced 97 total punt return yards on just two attempts, currently leads the NJAC in punt return average (23.0).
