Yale Rookie RB Adds to 2017 Accolades

 

NEW HAVEN, Conn. - There are three freshmen among the 97 players who earned a spot on the STATS FCS All-America team. Zane Dudek is one of them.

 

STATS FCS came out with its All-America list today and Yale's rookie running back was on the third team. Dudek is the first freshman running back to earn STATS FCS All-America since Fordham's Chase Edmonds in 2014.

 

Dudek, one of five Ivy League players and the only first-year member, has been named to numerous All-America squads and was the national rookie of the year on one.

Dudek was a finalist for the Jerry Rice Award for FCS Rookie of Year and the winner of the Ivy League Rookie of the Year voting while garnering first-team All-Ivy League honors.

Dudek, who received the New Haven Gridiron Club's Harry Jacunski Award, led the league in every rushing and scoring category including yards (1,133, 9th at Yale), yards per game (113.3), rushing TDs (15, 5th at Yale), yards per carry (7.1, 2nd in Ivy history, ties Yale record set in 1956), overall TDs (16), points (96, 2nd in FCS) and all-purpose yards (134.5).
