LEICESTER, Mass. --- Junior running back David Collins (Staten Island, N.Y. / Curtis) of the Becker College football team has been named the Becker Athlete of the Week for the week ending September 29, 2019.

Collins rushed for 114 yards on 23 carries in Becker's 58-12 loss at Endicott College on Saturday afternoon. The junior punched in a touchdown at the goal line with 12:19 to go in the fourth quarter for the Hawks' second touchdown of the day.

For his career, Collins has now amassed 1,103 career rushing yards which currently stands at fourth all-time in the Becker College record book.

Collins is the second representative of the football program to be named the Becker Athlete of the Week this season, joining freshman running back Randy Morgan (Spring Hill, Fla. / Springstead) who claimed the honor for the week ending September 15th.

Becker returns home next Saturday (Oct. 5) and will host Husson in a 12 noon homecoming game.
