Central Connecticut football sophomore Rob Hollomon was named CFPA FCS National Kick Returner of the Week for his performance in the Blue Devils' 37-31 loss at Robert Morris last week.  Hollomon gained 377 all-purpose yards in the game with 96 of those yards coming on a kickoff return touchdown.

Hollomon's 96-yard kickoff return touchdown is one of the longest in CCSU history.  The return is also just one yard shy of the Northeast Conference record for longest kickoff return (97 yards).

Hollomon was also named Northeast Conference Special Teams Player of the Week on Monday.

In addition to returning two kickoffs for 112 yards, Hollomon also rushed 27 times for 208 yards, caught six passes for 56 yards and had one punt return for one yard.  His 377 all-purpose yards are the most by a Blue Devil since the program moved to Division I for the 1993 season.

Hollomon's 208 rushing yards are the most by a Blue Devil since August 30, 2008 when James Mallory rushed for 256 yards against Bryant.

The College Football Performance Awards (CFPA) confers weekly, annual, and career awards for Division I players.  All CFPA recipients are selected exclusively based upon objective scientific rankings of the extent to which individual players increase the overall effectiveness of their teams.
