The CCSU Student-Athlete of the Month is a new initiative launched in 2018-19. Beginning with the September 2018 honoree, a Blue Devil student-athlete will be recognized each month for their athletic performance, academic achievement and community involvement.

The CCSU Student-Athlete of the Month is sponsored by long-time supporter and donor Pat Clynes, and his business, Fritz Kennel, in Houston, Texas.  Clynes, a Connecticut native, is a generous benefactor of CCSU Athletics, and most recently established the Clynes Athletic Enrichment Fund in August of 2016.  Thank you once again to Pat for his continued commitment to CCSU Athletics.
