  2022 NORTHEAST CONFERENCE DEFENSIVE ROOKIE OF THE YEAR: DL Eric O'Neill, LIU,...O'Neill wasted little time in making his name known in the NEC loop as a disruptive force. He was a nightmare for opposing team's offenses, especially down the final stretch of the season. Averaging 5.6 tackles per game in league play, the 6-foot-3 redshirt freshman ended the campaign on an absolute tear with 33 of his 51 stops coming in last four games of the year. It's no coincidence that LIU went 4-0 in that stretch for a program-best third-place finish in the NEC standings. Recently named the Stat Perform FedEx Ground FCS National Freshman Player of the Week, O'Neill twice earned the NEC Defensive Player of the Week award.

His first honor came after he stuck 5.0 tackles-for-loss and 2.5 sacks in the Sharks' first win of the season, a double-overtime takedown of Duquesne in late October. Stymying Sacred Heart's final drive and comeback bid with consecutive sacks in a 37-34 road win, the Staten Island native doubled his weekly award total this past Monday. The rookie made a career-best 14 hits, including 3.5 sacks and an NEC single-game season-high 5.5 tackles-for-loss. Overall, O'Neill's 21.0 tackles-for-loss and 10.0 sacks rank him second in the NEC. - NEC Football

  NOV 21 CO-DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Eric O'Neill, Long Island, Defensive Back, R-Fr., 6-3, 240 lbs., Staten Island, NY/Paramus Catholic, Week 12 Stats: 14 tackles (9 solo), 5.5 TFL, 3.5 sacks, 1 FF,...O'Neill, a defensive end from Staten Island, NY, capped off a career day by delivering a pair of game-saving stops to help LIU extend its season-ending four-game winning streak to four with a 37-34 victory at Sacred Heart. The redshirt-freshman had sacks on consecutive plays in the final two minutes of the fourth quarter to stave off the Pioneers, who scored 24-unanswered to pull within three, on their final drive. Teaming up with Carson Binder to take down quarterback Cabe Pribula and the Pios' back to the Sharks' 47-yard line, O'Neill stuck another sack and forced a fumble on a Sacred Heart fourth down to seal the win. He also stopped a fourth-and-goal rush from the LIU one-yard line to turn the ball back to the Sharks' offense in the first quarter. He was a nightmare for Sacred Heart's offense, racking up 14 tackles, including nine solo. In addition, his 5.5 tackles for loss were the most in a game by an NEC player this season, while his 3.5 sacks marked the second-best performance in the circuit. - NEC Football

  NOV 21 FEDEX GROUND FCS NATIONAL FRESHMAN PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Eric O'Neill, LIU, DE, 6-3, 240, R-Fr., Staten Island, New York,...O'Neill proved to be a nightmare for Sacred Heart's offense, collecting a game-high 14 tackles, 5.5 tackles for loss and 3.5 sacks while also forcing a fumble in LIU's 37-34 victory - the Sharks' fourth straight to end the Northeast Conference season. The tackles behind the line of scrimmage totaled 20 yards. The fumble occurred on a sack that ended Sacred Heart's final drive near midfield with just under two minutes remaining. Honorable Mention: Major Bowden, RS, Lamar; Jayden Brown, RB, Gardner-Webb; Micah Davey, LB, McNeese; Jake Gerardi, P, Southern Utah; Travis Hunter, WR/DB, Jackson State; Ruben Lopez, S, San Diego; Hayward McQueen III, LB, Western Carolina. - STATS FCS Football
