KUTZTOWN, Pa. – Redshirt-senior quarterback Collin DiGalbo of the Kutztown University football team tied a career-high with six offensive touchdowns and accounted for 352 total yards in leading KU to a season-opening 54-16 victory over Assumption last Saturday. For his efforts, DiGalbo was voted week one’s Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) East Offensive Athlete of the Week, announced Monday.
It was the sixth weekly honor for the Secane native.
Against the Greyhounds, DiGalbo threw for four scores and 263 yards on 16-of-23 passing, and added five carries for 89 yards and two touchdowns with his feet. He found seven different targets through the air, and connected with both Jack Pilkerton and Jake Novak twice for scores, the latter playing in his first collegiate game.
The Golden Bears (1-0 overall) offense racked up 629 yards, the most since they tallied 668 at East Stroudsburg back on Oct. 15, 2016. They also recorded 30 first downs, which is the highest total since Nov. 4, 2017, when they moved the chains 32 times at Cheyney.
The 54 points marked an opening-game high in the Jim Clements era and it is the Golden Bears’ fourth-highest week one total all-time. Kutztown last exceeded 50 points in an opener back in 2012 when it went hung 58 on Saint Anselm in a runaway victory.
Kutztown will begin conference play on the road this weekend as it will take on California (1-0) on Saturday, Sept. 14, at 1 p.m.
