One of the coaches was former Framingham State University quarterback Matt Silva, who showed the players his college championship rings.

Silva, who currently holds a dozen Framingham State passing records, established new school records for touchdowns in a game (6), touchdowns in a season (41), yards passing in a game (510) and season (3,168) during his senior campaign.

 

For his career, Silva threw for 9,866 yards with 118 touchdowns while completing 788 of 1,325 pass attempts.

Silva earned multiple post season honors after his final season in the black and gold. Silva was named the Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference (MASCAC) Offensive Player of the Year, a first team All-MASCAC selection, the Gridiron Club of Greater Boston’s Joseph Zabilski Award winner, a New England Football Writer’s All-New England selection and season Gold Helmet Award winner. He was recognized by D3football.com as an All-East region performer in addition to being selected the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Division III North Offensive Player of the Year and a first team all-star.
