Beginning in the month of October, StFX Athletics will be resuming our Boston Pizza Athlete of the Week awards every Monday. Head coaches will submit nominations and awards will be allocated to two student-athletes who are deserving of the recognition based upon outstanding contributions in practices and/or intra-squad events, along with leadership and dedication outside their sport.
