KUTZTOWN, Pa. – Kutztown University redshirt-sophomore quarterback Collin DiGalbo led the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) in passing yards and touchdowns through the air last weekend to earn him PSAC Eastern Division Offensive Athlete of the Week honors for week seven of the regular season.
DiGalbo threw for a career-high 351 yards in a 41-9 victory over East Stroudsburg University on Saturday at Andre Reed Stadium, and he added four touchdowns through the air. The 351 yards through the air topped his previous career-high of 301 yards in Kutztown’s (5-2 overall, 3-1 PSAC East) win over Seton Hill back on Sept. 16. He is the first Golden Bear to throw for more than 300 yards in a game twice in a season since Chad Barton in 2015.
In the win over the Warriors Saturday, DiGalbo tossed a season-long 79-yard touchdown pass and connected with 11 different receivers, which is the most by a quarterback since Josh Luckenbaugh accomplished the same feat in 2012.
DiGalbo earned All-PSAC East Second Team honors and was named the PSAC East Freshman of the Year in 2016.
On the ground, he holds four school-rushing records for a quarterback – touchdowns in a game (3) and season (8), longest run (82) and most rushing yards in a game (126). He has run for 659 career yards with 12 touchdowns. KU’s career QB records stand at 878 yards and 19 touchdowns.
DiGalbo is in the top-ten in program history in career completions (283), touchdown passes (26), and passing yards (3,275).
Kutztown hits the road for a contest against Lock Haven University (1-6, 1-3) on Saturday, Oct. 21. Kickoff is at 1 p.m.
