Palazzi Pulls in Player of the Week Honor

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Susquehanna senior quarterback Rich Palazzi (Newfoundland, Pa./Wallenpaupack) was instrumental in helping his squad take down Wilkes in overtime on Saturday and his efforts earned him Centennial Conference Co-Offensive Player of the Week honors.

Palazzi completed 36-of-57 passes for 421 yards and four touchdowns in SU’s 33-30 overtime, home-opening victory. His final score set up the game-tying two-point conversion with 10 seconds left in the game.

His 36 completions are the best single-game mark in program history while his 421 yards are good for second all-time in single-game history, behind only Todd Coolidge (494 vs. Muhlenberg – Sept. 12, 1987).

The Crusaders look for back-to-back wins on Saturday, Sept. 10 when they hit the road to play their Centennial Conference opener at Johns Hopkins. Kickoff is 2 p.m.
