Marshfield, Mass. – Dean College freshman sensation Louis Piccolo (Foxboro, Mass.) has been named the New England Collegiate Conference (NECC) Rookie of the Week it was announced by the league office on Monday.
Piccolo was a huge contributor in the Bulldogs' season-opening 19-5 win over Johnson State on Friday afternoon. Playing in his first collegiate contest, Piccolo finished with seven points, including scoring three of Dean's first four goals to help them overcome a slow start.
Down 3-0 in the game's first five minutes, Piccolo put the Bulldogs' on the board and then after they got within one goal, his back-to-back strikes gave Dean the lead for good early in the second quarter.
Those two tallies were part of an eight-goal period that saw the Bulldogs move in front, 10-3, and featured two more scores from Piccolo.
Dean's offense kept clicking in the third as Piccolo scored and had an assist as part of a nine goal outburst that saw the Bulldogs move in front 19-3 by quarter's end.
Piccolo and the rest of the Bulldogs will be back in action on Wednesday when they host Lyndon State at 3:00 PM.
