Hutra Earns NEWMAC Special Teams Athlete of the Week Recognition
Springfield, Mass. - October 12, 2021 - For the second time this season, Springfield College's Christian Hutra (Holmes, N.Y.) was selected as the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) Special Teams Athlete of the Week following his efforts on the gridiron last Saturday.
The Sport Management major played a critical role in Springfield earning a 60-0 win over Coast Guard on Saturday. The junior accounted for 11 points, including field goals from 34 and 33 yards, and had eight kickoffs that amassed 433 yards, including one touchback. Additionally, Hutra set the tone for the game as he executed and recovered an onside kick to start the game to give Springfield the early momentum.
