In a 22-6 victory over Merrimack, Schmoke tied a single-game program record with five made field goals and was one-of-three Division I FCS kickers to convert five field goals in one game this season. He earned two NEC Special Teams Player of the Week honors this season.
 
Summers, a Coatesville, Pa. native, earned his spot on the HERO Sports Sophomore All-American Offense after he was an All-NEC Second Team honoree this season. He scored a conference-leading nine touchdowns, ranked second with 674 receiving yards and was fifth with 44 receptions. He had a career-high 115 yards in the season-opener at Mid-American Conference member Eastern Michigan and topped 100 yards twice this season.
 
He scored in all but three games this season, ended with touchdowns in eight of the last nine games and scored a career-high two touchdowns in a 39-24 victory over Wagner. Summers was a two-time NEC Prime Performer selection this season.
 
The Red Flash ended their 2021 season with a 4-3 conference record, which is their third time above .500 in conference play since they joined the FBS Division I in 1993.
