Junior All-America candidate Tyler Varga picked up where he left off last fall with a 236-yard rushing day at Colgate. The third-best rushing day ever for a Yale back included a TD and a 6.1 average. Varga is the latest Total Mortgage Athlete Spotlight of the Week.

He led the nation with 199.4 all-purpose yards per game in 2012 and was the Ivy League leader with 119 rushing yards per game (10th in FCS). Varga rushed for over 100 yards in five (most in Ivy) of his seven games (9 yards shy vs. Cornell, 4 vs. Penn) and was the only Ivy player to rush for more than 200 in a game. His 220 at Columbia was sixth best for a Bulldog player and got him FCS national RB of the week from College Football Performance Awards. He was the first newcomer to run for triple digits in his Yale debut since Mike McLeod in 2005. 

Varga, who played at the University of Western Ontario in 2011, was a star track & field athlete who also competed in swimming, basketball and baseball. Varga was a star regional sprinter and jumper, but injured his leg and was convinced by his coach to help the team by throwing the shot (45', 6.5") and javelin (110').

Varga and his teammates play their home opener on Saturday against Cornell at the Yale Bowl. Kickoff is slated for noon.
