SELINSGROVE, Pa. – At Friday’s ninth Quarterback Club Luncheon of the year, Susquehanna junior quarterback Mark Rosenbaum (Long Valley, N.J./West Morris Central) was named the Wealth Professionals/Gus Weber Player of the Week for his performance last Saturday at Franklin & Marshall.
Against the Diplomats, Rosenbaum was 22-of-33 for a career-high 318 yards and a pair of touchdown passes as the Crusaders scored a season-best 36 points and accounted for 427 total offensive yards.
This season, Rosenbaum has played in four games and has completed 67 percent of his passes (59-for-88), totaling 788 yards (197 avg.) with five TDs and a long completion of 48 yards. Rosenbaum also has 18 carries, with a long rush of 29 yards, and a TD.
Wealth Professionals of Shamokin has partnered with SU as the
official sponsor of the Player of the Week Award for the
second-straight season. The sponsorship was spearheaded
by Ken Shedleski, owner and president of
Wealth Professionals. This week Rosenbaum made a donation to the
Morris County Youth Football League.
The award is also named in honor of late Susquehanna president Gustave Weber, who was SU’s president for more than 18 years who was also an avid Crusader athletics booster who actually served as head football coach for the final two games of the 1965 season.
SU hosts McDaniel tomorrow at 1 p.m. on Senior Day. The Crusaders defeated the Green Terror last season 42-38, the first win at McDaniel since 1969.
