Pioneers Robinson tabbed TSWA Football Player of the Week

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Tusculum College running back Isaac Robinson has been named the College Offensive Football Player of the Week by the Tennessee Sports Writers Association (TSWA).

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 South Atlantic Conference victory at Brevard College last Saturday. For his efforts, he was also named the SAC Offensive Player of the Week.

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.
