Jerry Rice Award
If there wasn’t a Division I-AA level, or what today is called the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS), who knows where Walter Payton, Jerry Rice and Buck Buchanan would have wound up.
Villanova redshirt freshman QB John Robtertson says he’s honored to win Jerry Rice Award.
No one knew much about John Robertson before he ran onto the field the second half of Villanova’s season opener against Temple back on August 31. Wildcats’ coach Andy Talley, and perhaps, even Robertson himself, a red-shirt freshman quarterback, didn’t know much, either.
