  NEC DEFENSIVE ROOKIE OF THE YEAR (COACHES): DB Gregory Reddick, Saint Francis,...The wait proved worth it for Reddick, who redshirted as a freshman in 2019 before missing the 2020 season due to Saint Francis' opt out. The defensive back stepped up and earned significant reps at safety in 2021, logging a conference-high 10 pass break-ups. Reddick forced two fumbles during the season and made one interception, which denied Bryant at the SFU 5-yard line in an eventual 18-17 setback. The native Floridian totaled 45 tackles for a Red Flash defense that limited opponents to 19.1 points per game. - NEC Football

  Backup quarterback Justin Sliwoski threw a go-ahead, 5-yard touchdown pass to Kahtero Summers after his 61-yard run set up the score early in the fourth quarter and St. Francis (PA) rallied to beat Duquesne 17-10 in Northeast Conference play on Saturday. Sliwoski entered the game to start the second half after the Red Flash (4-4, 3-1) failed to score with Jyron Russell at the helm and trailed 7-0 at halftime. Sliwoski directed an eight-play, 52-yard drive on the Red Flash's first possession of the third quarter, culminating in Marques DeShields' 1-yard TD run to pull St. Francis even at 7. The key play came when Sliwoski hit Brandan Lisenby for a 36-yard gain to the Dukes' 1-yard line.

Duquesne (4-3, 2-2), which hadn't lost to the Red Flash since 2016, regained the lead on freshman Andrew Smith's 39-yard field goal 9 seconds into the final quarter. But Sliwoski needed just five plays to find Summers on the ensuing drive and put St. Francis on top for good. Alex Schmoke kicked a 22-yard field goal with 53 seconds remaining to wrap up the win. Sliwoski completed 7 of 9 passes for 69 yards and ran for 59 yards on two carries. Russell finished 7-of-15 passing for 65 yards. Evan Nelson was 8-of-21 passing for 85 yards and a TD for the Dukes. Freshman Billy Lucas rushed for 99 yards on 22 carries. The two teams combined for just 462 yards of offense. - AP College Football

The Red Flash (2-3) sandwiched two touchdowns around a Morgan State three-and-out late in the third quarter to break open a 10-7 lead. After Sliwoski ran 45 yards to set up first-and-goal, Tate Myers caught a 3-yard touchdown pass, his first. Armstead ran in from the 3 as the Red Flash scored again in two plays, pushing the lead to 24-7 as the third quarter was ending.

Armstrong, a freshman, entered the game with 31 yards as his previous best. He surpassed that on one play with a 35-yard gainer just before halftime. Alex Schmoke added field goals of 23 and 47 yards, the latter a career-best. The Red Flash were first on the scoreboard when Sliwoski passed to Kathero Summers for a 23-yard touchdown. Morgan State (0-4) answered with a 13-play, 82-yard drive after the ensuing kickoff. Romello Kimbrough took a handoff, saw the middle was clogged and bounced the run outside to the left for a two-yard touchdown, knotting the score, 7-7, at halftime. - AP College Football
