WORCESTER, Mass. - Holy Cross junior quarterback Dominic Randolph (Amelia, Ohio) has received the Boston Globe Gold Helmet as the Division I New England Player of the Week, for games of Oct. 6. The award was presented at the New England Football Writers' Luncheon, held at Harvard's Murr Center. Last Saturday, Randolph led the Crusaders to a 48-37 victory at Brown.
In the Brown game, Randolph connected on 29 of 37 attempts for career-highs of 404 yards and six touchdowns, in addition to rushing for 19 yards. After the Bears had tied the score at 34-34 with 11:02 remaining in the fourth quarter, Randolph led the Crusaders to touchdowns on their next two drives, securing the victory. He tossed an 11-yard scoring pass to senior wide receiver Ryan Maher (Boca Raton, Fla.) with 8:58 remaining to give Holy Cross the lead, then tossed a 25-yard touchdown pass to junior tailback Terrance Gass (Sicklerville, N.J.) at the 2:18-mark to put the game away. Randolph's six touchdown passes were the second-highest single game total in school history, while his 404 passing yards were the fifth-best mark ever by a Crusader.
On the season, Randolph has now connected on 134 of 230 attempts for 1,571 yards and 15 touchdowns with just five interceptions. Over the course of his Holy Cross career, he has hit on 318 of 529 passes for 3,808 yards and 34 scores. Despite playing in just 14 career games, Randolph already ranks fifth all-time at Holy Cross in career touchdown passes, seventh in career completions and eighth in career passing yards.
Holy Cross (3-2 overall, 1-0 Patriot League) returns to action this Saturday, Oct. 13, when it plays host to Dartmouth (1-3 overall, 1-1 Ivy League) in a 1:00 p.m. game.
