Sacred Heart, which won the Tri-State Conference in the fall of 2016 and finished 2nd in 2017, is shifting to the New England Wide Conference for the 2017-18 season.

RPI defeated Sacred Heart 32-27 to win the Tri-State Conference for the second time in three years.

As Sacred Heart has begun the Tri-State Men's DII Conference season 2-0, Chris Coyne has been at the heart of it.

The former BC High standout is a big, powerful prop who has set the tone in the scrums, and thumps bodies out of the way in the breakdown and running the ball. He's also the club president, carries a 3.8 GPA, and was all-conference last season.
