LEICESTER, Mass. --- Freshman linebacker Nate Oliver (Dartmouth, Mass. / Dartmouth) of the Becker College football team has been named the Commonwealth Coast Conference Football Defensive Rookie of the Week for the week ending September 15, 2019.

Oliver led a Becker defense that held Worcester State to just 10 points last Friday evening, as the Hawks came away with a 12-10 victory to improve to 2-0. The first-year linebacker had nine tackles in the contest (three solo, six assisted), including 1.5 tackles for loss. He had a sack-assist for a two-yard loss.

Oliver currently ranks second on the Hawks for total tackles on the season. He is just the fourth Hawk to be named CCC Defensive Rookie of the Week since Becker joined the league three years ago.
