Dunn named Mariners' men's athlete of the week
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.
