  • »McKoy has run into the record book
  • Western Connecticut's Octavias McKoy is a pure running back at heart. Elusive, tough, fast, determined, strong, dedicated, and yet, humble. And most of all, grateful for his opportunity.
  • »Backup QB has big role at Mass Maritime
  • John Trudel admits his role is a bit strange. When Massachusetts Maritime reaches the red zone, Trudel - the backup quarterback - enters the game.
