Sports Network Recognizes Jordan Scott


Matt Dougherty has done his final 'Extra Point' article for the season, handing out awards to the best of everything. Colgate's own Jordan Scott got some well deserved recognition, tying fellow running back James Noble of Cal Poly for (national) Rookie of the Year honors. Here's what Matt had to say:

Neither player began the year as the starting running back, but both ended the 2005 campaign by playing prominent roles to lead their team to the playoffs. Noble ran for 1,578 yards and 16 touchdowns, and averaged more than seven yards per carry for the Mustangs. He went for 248 yards and five touchdowns in the season finale at Idaho State to put the Mustangs in the playoffs, and followed that up with a four-touchdown day in Cal Poly’s first round win at Montana.

Scott’s yards per carry average wasn’t as sparkling, but he carried almost all of the offensive load to pace Colgate to seven wins in the final eight games and the Patriot League title. Scott broke the league’s freshman rushing record with 1,364 yards, with eight games over the 100-yard mark and three efforts of more than 200 yards. He finished eighth nationally with 124 yards per game, and had six games with 30 or more carries.
Another great honor for Jordan. Stay healthy and hit those books. We want you racking up the yards for another 3 years!

  • Scott was truly special this year and deserves the accolades. He seemed to have excellent vision and timed his cuts well--always moving "north". Of course, that only works when the line is creating those creases. How many of the Colgate 'O' linemen are returning?
