WORCESTER, Mass. - Holy Cross senior quarterback Dominic Randolph (Amelia, Ohio) has received the Gridiron Club of Greater Boston Gold Helmet Award as the Division I New England Player of the Week, for his performance in Saturday's 20-7 victory over Georgetown at Fitton Field. Earlier this week, he earned Patriot League Offensive Player of the Week honors, while being selected as the National Offensive Player of the Week by the Sports Network. This marks the fifth time Randolph has won the Gold Helmet during his collegiate career.
In the Georgetown game, Randolph completed 36 of 56 passes for 414 yards and two scores. Both of his touchdown passes came in the fourth quarter, as the Crusaders rallied from a 7-6 deficit for the victory. Randolph, who threw for over 400 yards for the sixth time in his career, also rushed seven times for 17 yards, to finish with 431 yards of total offense. With that performance, he placed fourth on the Holy Cross single-game lists for completions and pass attempts, fifth for yards of total offense and seventh for passing yards.
During the contest, Randolph broke the all-time Holy Cross and Patriot League records for career passing yards, and became the first quarterback in conference history with over 10,000 passing yards. Over the course of his career as a Crusader, he has hit on 857 of 1,357 passes for 10,093 yards and 85 scores, with 10,415 yards of total offense. Randolph is now ranked 19th all-time in NCAA football championship subdivision (formerly Division I-AA) history in touchdown passes, 22nd in passing yards and 23rd in yards of total offense.
No. 25 Holy Cross (1-0 overall, 1-0 Patriot League) returns to action this Saturday, Sept. 12, when it plays host to Sacred Heart at 1:00 p.m.
