Central Connecticut football junior Rob Hollomon was named to The Sports Network FCS All-America Team on Wednesday afternoon. Hollomon earned a place on the second team offense at the all-purpose position after finishing the season with 2,270 all-purpose yards and 19 total touchdowns.
Prior to the season, Hollomon was named to The Sports Network FCS Preseason All-America Team as the all-purpose player on the third team.
The Philadelphia native spent his second year at CCSU as the team's starting running back and kick returner. He logged 284 carries and 1,452 yards on the ground, while punching in 18 rushing touchdowns. Hollomon also caught 26 passes for 223 yards and a touchdown.
