The sophomore running back totaled 238 yards and two touchdowns
Another week, another big offensive performance from Penn sprint football.
This weekend against Chestnut Hill, the Quakers got an all-time performance from sophomore running back Laquan McKever, who powered the team to its third straight victory and earned Player of the Week honors in the process.
McKever found success early and often on the ground, rushing for 71 of Penn’s 90 yards on the touchdown drive that would give the Red and Blue their first lead of the game at 21-14. After playing a crucial role in giving the Quakers the lead, McKever put the game away for good late, rattling off a 46-yard touchdown run to put the Red and Blue up by three possessions late in the fourth quarter.
McKever would finish with a career high 238 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Quakers to their 42-32 victory. McKever’s rushing total against Chestnut Hill was good for seventh best in program history and the most by a Quaker since 2010.
