Sir Aaron Taylor (West Chester/Lincoln Hall) has earned the NJCAA Special Teams Player of the Week award following his performance in Alfred State's 22-7 victory over the Apprentice School. Taylor had previously been named the NFC special teams player of the week.
Taylor returned the opening kickoff of the second half 86-yards to break a 7-7 tie en route to the Pioneers opening day victory. In total, Taylor had 97 returns yards on the day.
Defensivley, Taylor was also a factor finishing with five solo tackles, an interception, and three pass break-ups.
Quarterback Zach Mettenberger (Butler CC, Kan.) and free safety Griffin Ronstadt (Pima CC, Ariz.) joined Taylor in the weekly NJCAA honors.
Taylor and the Pioneers return to action on Sunday when they travel to Hartwick to take on the JV Hawks.
