Overtime! has learned of a change in the composition of the All-Northeast Conference Football Teams.
Approval has been secured for the coaches’ proposal to increase the number of All-NEC honorees.
As a result, All-NEC football teams will feature 27 members, up from 25 in previous years.
It’s a football-themed #ThrowbackThursday.

To celebrate the great news coming out of Sacred Heart today (senior DT Troy Moore was named to the Buck Buchanan Watch List), we will throw it back to one of the greatest defensive players to ever don the Red & White.
Jon Corto earned All-NEC First Team accolades at linebacker in 2006 before going on to spend five seasons in the NFL with his hometown team. A native of Western New York, Corto appeared in 37 games with the Buffalo Bills.
The Walter Payton and Buck Buchanan awards are the top two individual honors in the Division I Football Championship Subdivision.
Neither has yet to make its way into the hands of a NEC student-athlete, but Keshaudas Spence, Troy Moore or Rob Hollomon can change that.
Five #NECFB players found themselves listed amongst the Best in FCS when the Sports Network opened the month of July by announcing its Preseason All-American Teams.
It was a very good year for Bryant University, and it just got better.
Only five years removed from the NCAA Division II ranks, Bryant sent six of its teams to NCAA Championship play during the 2013-14 academic calendar and captured the NEC Commissioner’s Cup as a result.
The Brenda Weare Cup, a symbol of broad-based athletic excellence within the Northeast Conference, isn’t the lone prestigious honor the University has received lately.
Last week, USA Today College named Bryant to its list of top-10 business schools in the United States.
Here’s what writer Madison Mills said about the Rhode Island-based institution and its business program…
A trip to the ballpark has become an American summertime tradition.
Last week, contingents from NEC members Robert Morris and St. Francis Brooklyn took part in that tradition and went out to the “old ballgame.”
Robert Morris hosted RMU Night at PNC Park in Pittsburgh on June 27.
The University reserved a block of tickets in the All-You-Can-Eat Seats so students, alumni and friends could “come together and show Pittsburgh what we’re all about.”
RMU President Gregory Dell’Omo is no Doug Drabek, but he does have a decent arm. The right-hander threw out the ceremonial first pitch prior to Pirates’ 3-2 victory over the Mets.
“It [the collective cooperation] is the strongest it’s been here in my 10 years and I think we’re all moving in the right direction.”
Dr. Greg Dell’Omo likes what he sees when it comes to the current state of the NEC.
