ECAC Names Laux Football All-Star

Junior Jake Laux

CENTERVILLE, Mass. – After being named to the All-New England team last month, junior linebacker Jake Laux (Dousman, Wis.) was selected for another postseason award with his selection as an ECAC Division III North Football All-Star. He is one of 12 players from the New England Football Conference among the 32 selections on the All-Star team.

A first team All-NEFC performer in 2012, Laux turned in one of the best seasons by a linebacker in the hitroy of MIT football, leading the team and the NEFC with 121 tackles, just two short of tying the Institute record. He also had an interception in the final seconds of the upset win over Salve Regina on October 19 that earned him NEFC Defensive Player of the Week honors.
