Sophomore wide receiver Chase Dunn, who caught two more touchdown receptions last week, was named the Mariners' men's athlete of the week.
Dunn caught a pair of TD passes from quarterback Alex Coviello in the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy's 41-21 home loss to Springfield College in a non-conference game last Saturday. The Dade City, Fla. native caught a 15-yard TD pass in the second quarter and added a 19-yard score that closed the gap to 28-21 with 11:13 remaining in the game. Dunn has caught 13 passes for 317 yards, a 24.4 average – for five TDs this season.
Dunn scored three touchdowns in the Mariners' 35-28 comeback win over archrival Coast Guard on Sept. 10.
