WHITINGHAM, Vt. – The Eastern Collegiate Football Conference (ECFC) named its players of the week for October 25 and Gallaudet University kicker/punter Justin Wilson (Carmichael, Calif.) was named Special Teams Player of the Week after he helped the Bison win their second conference game last Saturday with a 40-12 road win over Becker College. This is the fourth ECFC Player of the Week award for Gallaudet this season and the fifth-time Wilson has earned this honor in two years and his second this year (October 4).
