It may have been his best game in his team’s worst. But each has progressed enough to extend the season.
The more time that Evan Horn spends with the New Hampshire University football program, the better they get.
On Saturday afternoon at Bob Ford Field in Albany, New York, Horn and the Wildcats closed out the 2017 regular season with a disappointing 15-0 loss to the University of Albany. But the good news for Horn and New Hampshire is that their fall will continue in the postseason.
Horn, a 2016 graduate of Cedar Crest and a red-shirt-freshman safety, was all over the field for the New Hampshire defense. Horn recorded his first career sack – one of his two tackles-for-loss on the day – and collected a total of three solo tackles and five assists.
This fall, Horn has become more and more involved in the Wildcat defense, logging 17 solos and 18 assists for 35 total tackles. The 6-0, 201-pound Horn has also picked off a pair of passes and broken up four others.
Next Saturday, Horn and the 7-4 Wildcats will host Central Connecticut State in the opening round of the NCAA Division One-FCS playoffs.
