PHILADELPHIA, PA.--The awards and honors continue to roll in for junior quarterback Ricky Santos (Bellingham, Mass.). He was named the Atlantic 10 Offensive Player of the Week, a I-AA.org All-Star and The Sports Network National offensive Player of the Week for his outstanding efforts in UNH’s thrilling 52-49 victory at Delaware on Sept. 30. Santos completed 21-of-30 passes for 281 yards and three touchdowns and added a game-high 110 rushing yards and two scores. He had touchdown passes of 28 yards to freshman RB Chad Kackert, 11 yards to senior wideout Aaron Brown and 13 yards to junior RB Chris Ward and had scoring runs of one and nine yards.
It marked his fourth career 100-yard rushing performance and the junior has not thrown an interception in 102 pass attempts this season. He also became the program’s all-time passing yardage leader with 8,008 in 30 games, surpassing the previous mark of 7,742, held by Bob Jean (1985-88).
