Nov. 19, 2007

WORCESTER, Mass. - Holy Cross junior quarterback Dominic Randolph (Amelia, Ohio) has been named National Offensive Player of the Week by the Sports Network, for his performance in Saturday's 27-20 victory over Colgate. Randolph set new career-highs with 441 passing yards and 473 yards of total offense against the Raiders, while leading the Crusaders to their first victory over Colgate since 2000. Earlier this week, Randolph earned Patriot League Offensive Player of the Week honors.

In the Colgate game, Randolph completed 29 of 42 passes for 441 yards and three touchdowns, while rushing for 32 yards on six carries. With that performance, he recorded the second-highest single game marks in school history for both passing yards and total offense. Holy Cross trailed 20-10 midway through the third quarter, when Randolph led the team on three straight scoring drives to rally for the seven-point victory. He threw two of his three touchdown passes in the fourth quarter, with a 26-yard toss to junior wide receiver Brett McDermott (Mansfield, Mass.) and a three-yard pass to senior wide out Justin Maher (Milford, Conn.).

Randolph finished the season hitting on 297 of 482 passes for 3,604 yards and 30 touchdowns with just eight interceptions. He also set Holy Cross single season records for total offense (3,741 yards), completions and passing attempts. Over the course of his career as a Crusader, he has now completed 481 of 781 passes for 5,841 yards and 49 touchdowns.

Holy Cross finished the 2007 season with an overall record of 7-4, while placing second in the Patriot League with a 4-2 mark in conference games.
