On Sunday, it was announced that freshman lineman, Joe Falato, a native from Lodi, NJ, would be named the NJAC Football Defensive Rookie of the Week. This is the second straight week that Montclair State has claimed an honor from the conference. Last week, wide receiver Malcolm Robinson was named Offensive Rookie of the Week.
Falato earned this honor after helping the Red Hawks secure a 17-16 victory in their home opener against Salve Regina. In the first win of the season, he recorded five tackles, which includes 1.5 sacks for a loss of eight yards. Falato also forced a fumble and constructed a quarterback hurry in his first collegiate game at Sprague Field.
