Go Leopards!

Oct. 5, 1999

EASTON, PA - Lafayette College freshman placekicker Martin Brecht (Jeannette, PA/Greensburg Central Catholic) was named Patriot League Rookie of the Week today for his clutch performance in the Leopards' 20-10 victory over Dartmouth this past Saturday.

Lafayette's starting placekicker the entire season, Brecht finally got the nod to attempt a field goal vs. Dartmouth late in the third quarter with the Leopards trailing 10-7. He calmly converted the 27-yard attempt to tie the game. Early in the fourth quarter, he was called on again. This time, he nailed a 32-yarder for the go-ahead score.

Brecht also converted both of his PAT attempts, raising his season total to seven-of-nine.

Lafayette, now 1-3 overall and 0-2 in the Patriot League, remains in the friendly confines of Fisher Field this Saturday to host Colgate at 1:30 p.m.
