Kirk Rohle, Hampden-Sydney, Senior, Running Back

Rohle, a senior from Mechanicsville, Va., carried the Tiger offense in the 63-49 win over Guilford with five touchdowns and 232 all purpose yards. On the ground, the senior back ran for four scores and 139 yards on 22 carries while averaging 6.3 yards-per-touch. Through the air, Rohle averaged 18.6 yards-per-catch hauling in five passes for 93 yards and a score. When the Tigers were down 14-0 early, Rohle was the first to move the chains and find the end zone for the Tigers. The Tigers could not get a first down in the first quarter, but Rohle then accounted for 38 of the 51 yards needed to score early in the second quarter to cut the deficit to 14-7. He then tacked on two more touchdowns to end the second quarter, while giving the Tigers their first lead of the day – one they would not give up. He continued his work into the third quarter scoring both of Hampden-Sydney’s touchdowns – his first on a seven yard run and second on a 43-yard reception. His longest rush came on a 41-yard run that set up his fourth touchdown of the day.
