Philadelphia University of Pennsylvania sophomore Mike Loguidicewas named the Collegiate Sprint Football League (CSFL) Player of the Week after a stellar performance in the Quakers’ 49-8 victory over Princeton.
“Mike has been playing so well for us this season and each game he continues to improve,” Head Coach Bill Wagner said. “He has a lot of ability not only as a passer, and a runner, but as a punter as well, making him a triple threat. We haven’t had a triple-threat at Penn in a while. Mike is also an unselfish player who spreads the ball around to involve his entire team..”
Against the Tigers, the quarterback threw four touchdowns for 231 yards on 12-for-21 passing. It was the third-most passing yards in program history. In the season opener against Cornell, Loguidice had an excellent debut, throwing 251 yards, the second-highest total in the record books, and a touchdown on 15-for-23 passing. For the season, Lougidice has a league-leading 482 yards and five touchdowns to his credit and is averaging 241 yards per game. Overall, he is has completed 61.4 percent of his passes (27-for-44). He is just 294 yards away from setting Penn’s single-season record for passing yards in a season.
Penn (2-0) has the week off, but returns to Franklin Field on Oct. 16 to face Army at 7 p.m.
