Oct. 25, 2006

WORCESTER, Mass. - Holy Cross sophomore quarterback Dominic Randolph (Amelia, Ohio) has received the Boston Globe Gold Helmet as the Division I-AA New England Player of the Week, for games of Oct. 21. The award was presented at the New England Football Writers' Luncheon, held at Harvard's Dillon Field House. Earlier this week, Randolph was named the ECAC Offensive Player of the Week, in addition to earning Patriot League Offensive Player of the Week honors for a conference-record fourth time in a row. On Saturday, Randolph led the Crusaders to a 38-28 victory at Lafayette.

In the Lafayette game, Randolph accounted for all five of Holy Cross' touchdowns, throwing for four scores and rushing for the fifth. Overall, he completed 34 of 46 passes on the day for 352 yards, to set new career highs in all three categories. Randolph also broke the school record for most completions in a single game with 34, passing the old mark of 32, which Brian Hall set against Lafayette in 2001.

On the season, Randolph has now connected on 121 of 171 passes for 1,383 yards and 13 touchdowns with just two interceptions. He currently has a pass efficiency rating of 161.4, and has thrown 124 straight passes without an interception. Through games of Oct. 21, Randolph ranks eighth in the nation in pass efficiency, and 11th in both passing yards per game (230.5) and completions per game (20.2).

Holy Cross (6-2 overall, 3-0 Patriot League) returns to action this Saturday, Oct. 28, when it plays host to Lehigh (3-4 overall, 2-0 Patriot League) in a 1:00 p.m. game.
