He led the Patriot League in total offense, passing yards and pass efficiency (141.6 rating), while ranking second in the nation in total offense, passing yards and completions. Over the course of his career, Randolph has now completed 481 of 781 passes for 5,841 yards and 49 touchdowns. He currently ranks fourth all-time at Holy Cross in touchdown passes and passing yards, while standing fifth in total offense, completions and pass attempts.
