USF’s Coate Honored By MSFA

FORT WAYNE, Ind. – University of Saint Francis wide receiver Seth Coate has been selected Mid-States Football Association Mideast League Offensive Player of the Week for the first time this season after the junior posted five receptions for 142 yards including a touchdown playing a key role in the 7th-ranked Cougars’ 38-29 win at ninth-ranked Robert Morris University on Sat., Oct. 24.

 

Coate (Fort Wayne, IN / Homestead H.S.) scored USF’s first TD of the game on a 41-yard pass from QB Nick Ferrer. Coate, 6-foot-4 junior, also grabbed a 55-yard pass from Ferrer to set up a USF field goal that started a 17-0 run for the Cougars that wiped out a 14-7 halftime deficit.

 

Coate is the first USF wide receiver to win the weekly honor since Jeremy Dutcher won the award in Week 8 of the 1999 season.

 

Coate’s honor is the 94th conference player-of-the-week award for USF, all under the direction of head coach Kevin Donley in 18 seasons.

 

The No. 7-ranked Cougars have an open week and return to action against College of Faith on Nov. 7 at noon at Bishop D’Arcy Stadium in a non-conference game.
