Chad Faulcon, a former Montclair State University safety, has been given the opportunity to play professional football once again. The All-American has signed with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the Canadian Football League. He has become the first ever Red Hawk to sign with the Canadian Football League.
He completed his football career with Montclair State in 2011. Faulcon was named the New Jersey Atheletic Conference and D3 Football East Region Defensive Player of the year.
In 2011, he registered 72 tackles and 3 interceptions for the NJAC runner up. That year, Montclair State had an overall average of 8-2 (7-2 NJAC). Faulcon also helped Montclair State in NJAC Championships and NCAA Division III Playoff appearances in both 2009 and 2010.
As a two year starter, he appeared in 40 games, totaling 169 tackles, 106 solo stops and 13 tackles for loss. Faulcon picked off seven passes and tallied 17 pass breakups, including four forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, and a blocked kick.
His accomplishments as a safety earned him a free-agent signing with the Atlanta Falcons in 2012. He was included in the team’s rookie camp and organized team activities. Faulcon was also invited to the Falcons preseason camp.
