Many will remember Eddie Hahn from his high school days at Red Bank Catholic where he was a quarterback and safety for a Caseys team that won a Non-Public Group 3 title in 2014 and the following year reached the semifinals of the state tournament.

It was then on to the University of Connecticut for Hahn whose days as a quarterback came to an end.  At UConn he was used as both a safety and linebacker and his best season was 2018 where as a starter he made 59 tackles.  After playing on special teams in 2019 and graduating with a degree in economics he decided to move closer to home and spend his final year of eligibility at Monmouth University as a graduate transfer.  Those plans were delayed when the 2020 Fall Season was canceled but Hahn is now a starting linebacker for a Hawks team that has won its first two of four games scheduled as part of a Big South spring season.

In the opener against Charleston Southern, he had 7 tackles including a big 4th down stop and last week against Gardner-Webb had 8 total tackles and half a sack to go along with a forced fumble.

This Saturday Monmouth faces its biggest test when they host Kennesaw State at Kessler Stadium and I caught up with the 23-year old who is very happy to be back at the Jersey Shore.
