Maine's Senior Quarterback Thanks Fans

ORONO - Marcus Wasilewski, the Black Bears' award-winning senior quarterback, released a statement on Tuesday, thanking fans for their support.

The program's historic season came to a close on Saturday, falling to UNH in the second round of the FCS playoffs. It was Maine's first home playoff game in school history, and the turnout at the game did not go unnoticed by Wasilewski and his teammates.
Here is the full text of Wasilewski's statement:
"I would like to thank the University of Maine community and the State of Maine for the great show of support at our NCAA football playoff game on Saturday
I speak on behalf of all my teammates when I say we will always remember the atmosphere of that game. The outcome is not one we are content with, but the atmosphere is one that will be cherished. 
We hope that this type of atmosphere can continue on in the future and even become bigger and better! Black Bear Nation has the potential to be something really special, and that was proven Saturday by having the third highest attendance of all playoff games. 
This type of support goes a long way not only for our football team, but for any athletic team at the University of Maine. Again, our sincere gratitude goes out to you, Black Bear Nation. Go Blue!"
