Crusco Named Offensive Athlete of the Week

LANCASTER, Pa. – Susquehanna junior quarterback Nick Crusco (Oak Ridge, N.J./Don Bosco Prep) has been named the Centennial Conference's Offensive Player of the Week, announced Sunday morning.

In his third start of the season, Crusco led a second-half comeback that resulted in a 35-34 SU win over Moravian. The River Hawks trailed 27-7 at halftime before rallying to win the game on a late, two-point conversion.

Crusco completed 18-of-26 passes for 207 yards and a touchdown, while also rushing for 48 yards and four scores. His one-yard rushing touchdown with 49 seconds remaining in regulation left brought Susquehanna within one point of the lead (3433) and his two-point conversion pass to Lucas Garner proved to be the game-winning play. 

Through three games, Crusco has thrown for 562 yards and three touchdowns while rushing for 162 yards and five scores.

With Saturday's win, Susquehanna improves to 3-3 overall and 3-2 in Centennial games. The team remains on the road to face Ursinus on Oct. 22 at 1 p.m.
