For the second consecutive week, Fordham University sophomore quarterback Blake Wayne (Concord, Calif./De LaSalle) was honored by the College Football Performance Awards as a national NCAA FCS honorable mention quarterback performer of the week it was announced today. He is the third Ram to be honored in the past six weeks, joining Patrick Murray, who was twice named a national NCAA FCS honorable mention punter performer of the week, and Jason Caldwell, who earned the honor at wide receiver.

On the year, Wayne is second on the squad with 385 rushing yards on 89 carries (4.3 yards/carry) with four touchdowns while also completing 119 of 197 passes for 1,343 yards and five touchdowns. He leads the Patriot League in total offense (288.0 yards/game), is second in passing yards/game (223.8), fourth in rushing yards/game (64.2) and fourth in passing efficiency (124.0).
