Oct. 16 – CLEVELAND, Ohio – After putting up career-best numbers in Hiram football's offensive explosion, Terrier senior running back, Danny Robinson, has been named the North Coast Athletic Conference Player of the Week.
Robinson continued his stellar play over the past few weeks, helping lift the Terriers to a 62-56 victory over Kenyon College on Saturday. The senior back finished the game with a season-best 220 yards rushing on just 23 carries. In addition, he scored four touchdowns, marking a new career high.
After scoring his first touchdown from one-yard out, Robinson showed his ability for the big play, striking for his next three from 47, 32, and 75 yards. He has now tallied four runs of at least 40 yards in just the last two weeks, alone.
His efforts helped the Terriers shatter the previous school record for total yards in one game. Hiram posted 702 yards of offense in the contest, breaking the mark of 616 yards, which was set in 1976. Additionally, Hiram's 434 yards were just 15 shy of the school record.
Continuing to step up his game as a senior, Robinson has been held under 90 yards just once in the Terrier's first six games of the season. He currently ranks second in the NCAC in rushing yards per game, sitting at 120.7.
Danny has made the most of his touches this season. The senior has run the ball just 103 times on the year, averaging 7.03 yards per carry. That number currently ranks in the top 20 in all of Division III.
Robinson and the Terrier football team will be back in action on Saturday, Oct. 21 as they play host to The College of Wooster. The Homecoming tilt is scheduled for a 1 p.m. start.
