|Kevin Rose '11|
RUTHERFORD, NJ -- Last week at the Eastern College Football Awards banquet presented by FieldTurf, an event held inthe Touchdown Club at the New Meadowlands Stadium and sponsored by the ECAC, Eph senior offensive lineman Kevin Rose was honored.
Kevin Rose (Middletown, NY) was the lone member of the 8-0 Ephs to receive ECAC-North honors.
Rose has been an anchor on the Eph offensive line for the past three seasons. This year Rose and his mates up front allowed the Ephs to generate the most offense in NESCAC and most points, while protecting the passer by allowing less than one sack a game. Rose was previously named to the All-NESCAC First Team, the New England Football writers Div. II/III team ECAC-North All-Star Team.
Rose's normal position on the Eph o-line was guard, but this year he was called on to expand that role due to injuries. "Kevin played guard for 6 games and center for 2; exhibiting his versatility and unselfish approach, wanting what was best for the team," said first year offensive line coach Kyle Smesko. "He was very athletic and did a great job all year reaching defensive lineman and getting up to the linebackers on the second level.
