Todd Hummel's college football column: PSAC marks fall

We start this week in Erie County, where two Bloomsburg University standouts not only set school records in a 47-35 victory over the Fighting Scots, but also set Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference records as well.

Senior tailback Franklyn Quiteh carried the ball 31 times for 231 yards and three touchdowns, which allowed him to become the career rushing leader in the PSAC. He ended the game with 5,741 yards, surpassing the previous record of 5,689 set by Bloomsburg's Jamar Brittingham in 2007.

The record-setting gain was an 8-yard run early in the fourth quarter.

Mount Carmel graduate Chris Steck at center has been a key component for Quiteh's success, while Selinsgrove graduate Matt Wenrich is the fullback for the Huskies this season.

Kicker Dan Fisher also set a PSAC record, breaking the conference mark for kicking points in a career of 287 which Mark Brubaker of East Stroudsburg had owned since 2005. He also connected on two field goals to tie the record of 50 set by Ed Detwiler of East Stroudsburg in 1992.

Former Lewisburg offensive line standout Kyle Santorine accomplished something last week. He became a starting offensive lineman as a center.

Santorine had a shot at a starting bid when Dickinson coach Darwin Breaux talked at media day, but that was before fall practice had started.

Santorine made the first snap for the Red Devils offense when they opened last week against Hobart.

Santorine and Dickinson visit Susquehanna on Saturday afternoon.

Former Shikellamy quarterback Garrett Pope has made the transition to linebacker for the Huskies and earned the opening day start at weak-side linebacker.

An illness kept Pope from starting that game and, unfortunately for Pope, he might have been "Wally Pipped" from the lineup. Pipp was the Yankee first baseman that took a day off, which became the first game in Lou Gehrig's consecutive contests streak.
