RICHMOND, Va.--Villanova University redshirt freshman quarterback John Robertson has been named CAA Rookie of the Week. Robertson earns the honor for his play in Saturday's 28-13 win over Fordham.
Robertson made his first career start against Fordham and completed 8-of-17 for 78 yards and a touchdown to go with 46 yards rushing and a score. Robertson had 93 yards rushing, but his net total was reduced to 46 due to three Fordham sacks. His first career touchdown throw came on a 25-yard strike to Norman White in the first quarter.
Villanova returns to action on Saturday, Sept. 15, when the Wildcats play host to the Rhode Island Rams in the CAA opener.
