Athlete of the Week: Brian Monack

By Tyler Chaput

After making ESPN SportsCenter’s Top 10 Plays of the Day for the second time in as many seasons, Brian Monack, centerfielder for the Quinnipiac baseball team, was voted in by the WQAQ Sports Department as the WQAQ Athlete of the Week.

Monack tracked down a deep fly in center after completely turning around at one point.  As he approached the warning track, Monack laid out and fully extended to catch the ball before landing on the dirt below.  Some have said the diving catch looked like something out of Gold Glove centerfielder Jim Edmonds’ repertoire.

The catch landed Monack as the No. 2 play on ESPN SportsCenter’s Plays Of The Week.

He was No. 1 on ESPN SportsCenter’s Top-10 Plays of the Day after he jumped over the fence in left-centerfield to rob a homerun at Quinnipiac Field last season.
