Former St. Peter Knight kicker Sean Decloux ended his sophmore season at the University of Maine last week with an eight point effort against the University of New Hampshire in the second round of the NCAA FCS playoffs.

Decloux went 2-for-2 in the field goal department, splitting the uprights from 28 and 21 yards. He also made both his extra point attempts and averaged 49.2 yards on six kick-offs. All of which were in a losing cause as the Black Bears lost 41-27 to the Wildcats.

Despite the disappointing end to the season, the Black Bears can be proud of the fact they were the first team in school history to win a Colonial Athletic Association football championship and Decloux was a big reason for it, picking up first team all-star honours for his contribution.

The Orléans native led the Black Bears in scoring with 91 points and set a new school single season record with 16 field goals.

With two more years left, Decloux is hoping to break the school's all-time records for both field goals and scoring.

Decloux left St. Peter in 2011 to play football at the Red Lion Christian Academy prep school in Delawre. After a year at the Academy, he signed a scholarship to play at Maine.
