ROCK HILL, S.C. — Tusculum College running back Isaac Robinson has been named the AstroTurf South Atlantic Conference Offensive Football Player of the Week announced league officials Monday.
Robinson, a 5-11, 205-pound sophomore from Palmyra, Virginia, rushed for a school single-game record 250 yards and two touchdowns in the Pioneers’ 20-0 conference victory at Brevard College.
The 250-yard performance breaks the previous program best of 245 yards set by Walter Dette against Biltmore (now UNC Asheville) in 1930, a record which has stood for the last 85 years. Robinson also established school records with his 39 rushing attempts.
Tusculum (2-3, 1-2 SAC) returns to action this Saturday when they host 23rd-ranked Wingate University for Homecoming at Pioneer Field. Kickoff is slated for 2:30 p.m.
