Mulumba Earns CAA Football Rookie of the Week
ORONO, Maine -- University of Maine football redshirt freshman linebacker Christophe Mulumba (Montreal, Quebec) has been named the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) Rookie of the Week, as announced by the association on Monday, Sept. 16.
Mulumba continued his strong start to his rookie season as he tallied a game-high, and career-high, 12 tackles to help lead the Black Bears to a 3-0 start after a 35-22 win in their home-opener against Bryant on Saturday. Mulumba added a pair of pass breakups and a half-sack for a loss of five yards as Maine remained unbeaten and enjoys its first 3-0 start since 2002.
Maine returns to action when it travels to #18/16 Northwestern of the Big Ten Conference to battle the Wildcats on Saturday, Sept. 21 at 3:30 EST.
