Ray Earns National Praise On D3Football.com Team Of The Week

KINGS POINT, N.Y. (Oct. 8, 2019) – A day after receiving praise from the NEWMAC Conference, USMMA freshman defensive lineman Colton Ray (Bellevue, Ohio) earned recognition on the national level, as he was selected to the D3football.com Team of the Week. He becomes the first Mariner to earn a spot on the national team of the week since the Merchant Marine offensive line did so back in the 2017 season. 

Ray was an instrumental part of the Mariners' 35-29 double-overtime victory at home over MIT this past Saturday. He led the team with 10 tackles, including three of them which were sacks that dropped the Engineers back a combined 22 yards. The freshman nose guard also forced one fumble and had a quarterback hurry in the contest.
