Connor Eck, a local product of Rye, NY, recently completed his second season with the Union College football team. During his first year as the starting quarterback, Connor played in all 10 games for the Dutchmen, recording 1,914 passing yards, 591 rushing yards and 21 touchdowns (17 passing, 4 rushing). Eck was the motor of the Union offense this fall and there are high hopes for his next two years with the team. He was named Honorable Mention for the Liberty League All-Star team.
Overall, the Dutchmen finished 6-4 under coach John Audino and won 6 out of their last 7 games to finish in second place in the Liberty League. The season culminated with a thrilling overtime victory against long time rival RPI in the 'Dutchmen Shoes' game. Eck threw the game winning touchdown pass on 4th and 16 to his favorite target, Kyle Reynolds.
