CENTER VALLEY, Pa. — The Patriot League honored Fordham junior quarterback Michael Nebrich with the Rockin' Refuel® Performance of the Week award after he led the Rams to a 37-27 win over Sacred Heart in the first round of the FCS Playoffs last Saturday.
Nebrich threw for 413 yards and three touchdowns, and he ran for a fourth as Fordham improved to 12-1 on the season and advanced to the second round where the Rams will face Towson at 1 p.m. Saturday. The junior signal caller is ranked fourth in the nation with 3,986 passing yards and sixth with 31 passing touchdowns. He also has rushed for 481 yards and nine touchdowns. Nebrich has helped three Fordham receivers, Sam Ajala, Tebucky Jones and Brian Wetzel, all surpass 1,000 yards for the season, while tailback Carlton Koonce has more than 1,600 all-purpose yards.
Nebrich has been at the helm of most of Fordham’s offensive highlights this season, and with him earning his second Rockin’ Refuel® Performance of the Week honor, it only seemed appropriate to take a look at the best of the best in this week’s Rockin’ Refuel® video feature.
