Kent completed an undefeated regular season earning its 5th trip to a New England Bowl game in the past 11 years. The team has also played in back-to-back New England Bowl games and has won 15 of its last 17 games. 22 team members earned spots on the Academic Honor Roll for the Fall Term. Two members of the Kent roster made Players of the Year in the Erickson League as well: Tevaun Smith on offense and Chris Mulumba on defense. Three other players earned All-League Honors: Tyler Catalina, Jordan Teague and Pierre-Luc Caron. Smith, Mulumba and Teague were also named to the All-New England team.
Kent is proud of the sustained excellence its players have achieved on and off the field in the 20 year tenure of Coach Marble. Marble has been recognized as Coach of the Year three times by the Northern Connecticut Chapter of the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame. This tradition of excellence extends well beyond this span as Kent has had only two head coaches the past 42 years: legendary coach Cy Theobald preceded Marble at Kent and led his teams to eight championships in his Hall of Fame career.
Through the week of pre-season practices, eating every meal together, rooming alongside each other, movie nights, and a bowling excursion, the team became an inseparable family. Team members worked hard during practices and kept up their efforts with their academics. The team was dealt difficult blows with injuries, but the team showed their love for the sport and their commitment to making the team better by embracing their new positions.It is an honor to be a part of Kent Football. Being on the team earns the respect from peers not only on campus but throughout New England. I expect this team’s family bond and success will continue through the years as this is the very foundation of the program the coaches have built.
