Greg Senat: Hoops ➡️ Gridiron ➡️ NFL Draft Pick

A former college basketball player became the first Northeast Conference athlete selected in the NFL Draft in nearly a decade.

Wagner offensive tackle Greg Senat, who originally attended the school on a basketball scholarship, went to the Baltimore Ravens in the sixth round of the 2018 NFL Draft.

Prior to Senat being selected with the No. 212 overall pick this spring, former Monmouth tight end, a four-time all-NEC honoree, was the conference’s last draft pick. Nalbone went to the Dolphins with the 161st pick in the 2009 NFL Draft (5th Round).

Although Senat is the first NFL Draft pick in Wagner’s NEC history, the Seahawks have had a presence in the NFL in recent years. Former all-NEC linebacker Julian Stanford has played in 59 NFL games since 2012 and the veteran signed a free agent contract with the Buffalo Bills this past offseason.

Linebacker and Offensive Guard Represent #NECFB in AP All-America Arena

Two all-Northeast Conference football players received All-America plaudits from the Associated Press.

Duquesne senior guard Ben Huss, who has been a mainstay up front for what’s perennially been one of the league’s most high-powered offenses, earned a spot on the AP All-America Second Team.

Bryant junior linebacker Tom Costigan, the 2017 NEC Defensive Player of the Year, garnered Third Team All-America honors from the AP.

Neither athlete had received All-America honors from the AP prior to this season, but Huss was named a STATS FCS Third Team All-American as a junior in 2016.

Huss makes its three straight seasons during which a Duquesne Duke has made an AP All-America Team. Linebacker Christian Kuntz, a two-time NEC Defensive Player of the Year, earned second team status in both 2015 and 2016.

Costigan is the first Bryant Bulldog to snag an AP All-America selection since 2014 when lineman Jeff Covitz, the program’s all-time sacks leader, earned a spot on the Third Team Defense.

Postseason #NECFB Awards Announced on Thanksgiving Eve 🏈🦃

The Northeast Conference gave football fans something other than turkey to dissect at the Thanksgiving dinner table.

The league unveiled its two All-NEC Teams and anointed five major individual award winners via Twitter on Wednesday afternoon.

Duquesne saw one of its one etch his name onto the NEC Offensive Player of the Year award for the first time ever. NEC champion Central Connecticut produced the first non-skill position winner of the NEC Offensive Rookie of the Year award while Pete Rossomando became the Blue Devils’ third recipient of the Coach of the Year honor.

Duquesne (12) and Central Connecticut (11) produced the highest number of all-NEC honorees. The former placed a league-high eight on the First Team. All seven NEC teams earned multiple all-conference selections.
