  2022 NORTHEAST CONFERENCE OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR: QB Cole Doyle, Saint Francis U,...Doyle split time on the gridiron early in the season before cementing his role as the Red Flash's starting field general prior to the NEC slate. He hit his stride during conference play. Recording 1,544 yards in the air with a league-best 68.8 completion percentage against league opponents, the California product native threw 19 scoring strikes while being intercepted on only two occasions during that seven-game stretch. Doyle rides some serious momentum into the postseason. In his final three starts against Sacred Heart, Duquesne and Merrimack, the redshirt sophomore compiled 917 passing yards (305.7 per game), 14 touchdowns with zero interceptions.

During that stretch, which featured an NEC single-game best 412-yard and five-touchdown effort in the finale at Merrimack, Doyle calculated a sizzling 71.77 pass completion percentage. A 5-foot-10 transfer from the College of the Canyons, Doyle threw seven times as many touchdown passes as interceptions in 2022 in his Red Flash debut. His eye-popping 13.79 yards per completion stands 16th on the NCAA FCS season leaderboard, while his 21 touchdown passes are the 17th-most in the nation. Doyle garnered NEC Offensive Player of the Week accolades a league-best three times, with each of those honors coming in the final four weeks of the campaign. - NEC Football

  2022 NORTHEAST CONFERENCE DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR: DL Donnell Brown, Saint Francis U,...Brown was a key component of a Red Flash defense that limited opponents to 310.0 yards of offense per game, which ranks ninth in the nation. The Marlboro, PA product made multiple tackles in all 11 games this fall, including a career-high seven in a season-opening overtime setback to FBS opponent Akron, while logging at least 2.0 tackles-for-loss in four of those contests. He was named the NEC Defensive Player of the Week after contributing a lockdown performance that led to a 57-7 win over LIU in October. The 6-foot-3 redshirt sophomore contributed to a Red Flash unit that conceded the fifth-fewest passing yards per game in the nation (159.4) and posted the FCS's fifth-best pass defense efficiency rating in the nation at 108.29. In addition, Brown earned All-NEC distinction for the second time in as many seasons, elevating his status from second team to first team in 2022. - NEC Football

  2022 NORTHEAST CONFERENCE OFFENSIVE ROOKIE OF THE YEAR: WR Makai Jackson, Saint Francis U,...Jackson exploded onto the scene by winning the NEC Rookie of the Week honor a league-best four times, including three times during the first four weeks of his career. Tacking on a pair of NEC Offensive Player of the Week awards and one NEC Special Teams Player of the Week accolade to that already impressive resume, the Keystone State product is the nation's top-ranked rookie in receptions and receiving yards per game. Jackson's numbers also rank him among the best in the FCS, as he is eighth in receptions per game (5.28), 19th in receiving yards (920) and 22nd in receiving yards per game (83.6).

Registering 81 yards in his collegiate debut in an overtime loss to Akron, Jackson exceeded the 100-yard mark in his next three games in a stretch that included a career-best 123-yard performance at Richmond. He was the most-targeted receiver in the NEC by a long shot with 80 catches, 18 more than the next closest competitor. The 6-0 speedster has received national attention as well, as he was named the Stats Perform FedEx Ground FCS National Freshman Player of the Week in October. - NEC Football

  NOV 14 NEC OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Cole Doyle, Saint Francis U, Quarterback, R-SO, 5-10, 170 lbs., Glendale, CA/Crescenta Valley (College of the Canyons), Week 11 Stats: 15-27, 241 yards, 55.6 pass completion percentage, 4 TD, 0 INT,...Doyle takes home NEC Offensive Player of the Week honors for the second time in three weeks after he led Saint Francis U to a commanding 51-14 victory over Duquense on Saturday.

  Cole Doyle threw four touchdown passes in the first half, St. Francis of Pennsylvania built a 30-0 lead in the first half and rolled to a 51-14 victory over in-state rival Duquesne on Saturday. The victory was the eighth of the season for the Red Flash, the most wins in one season since the program moved to Division I in 1993. St. Francis and Merrimack, a 20-14 winner over Central Connecticut, both are 6-0 in NEC play and face each other next week in the regular season finale to determine the conference regular season title. Because Merrimack is ineligible for the Football Championship Series playoffs, St. Francis had already clinched the NEC automatic berth.

Alex Schmoke kicked a 42-yard field goal to get the Red Flash on the board and Doyle hit both Elijah Sarratt and Makai Jackson with touchdown passes from 10-yards out to make it 16-0 after a quarter and added two more TD passes to Hunter Brown in the second quarter to make it 30-0 at intermission. John Courtney added a 19-yard pick-six to start the second half and Justin Sliwoski hit Sarratt with his second TD of the game and seventh in his last three games. Jordan Jackson's 26-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter gave St. Francis its second 50-point game of the season. - AP College Football
