Terio sets NCAA DIII record for INT returns

More news about: Salve Regina

NEWPORT, R.I. - Salve Regina University sophomore Phil Terio (Trumbull, Conn.) has set an NCAA DIII football single season record by recording four interceptions returned for a touchdown this year. 

Terio set the record this weekend, picking-off a fourth quarter pass and returning it 68 yards for a score during Salve Regina's 57-21 victory over UMass Dartmouth. It marked the third consecutive game in which Terio has recorded a pick-six.

With at least four more games remaining, Terio has already compiled interception returns of 31, 52, 68, and 88 yards. Astoundingly, Terio leads the Seahawks in scoring as strictly a defensive and special teams player. In addition to his four touchdowns off interceptions, the sophomore standout also has added a 45-yard punt return for a touchdown, giving him a grand total of five touchdowns on the year.

After earning 2011 New England Football Conference (NEFC) Defensive Rookie of the Year honors, Terio has clearly avoided the sophomore slump. To this point in the year, the defensive back has compiled 33 tackles, five interceptions, four pass breakups, one forced fumble, and a fumble recovery, helping Salve Regina to an undefeated 6-0 record, a No.1 ranking in the region, and as high as a No. 30 ranking in the nation.

The Seahawks will be back in action this Saturday, hosting Curry at Gaudet Field (12 p.m.) as Terio looks to push his streak to four straight games with a pick-six.
