As a Lehigh Football fan I was pleased to see that Chris Lum received the accolades below. He is the type of scholar athlete referred to in prior posting about college football players. Well done Chris! I look forward to seeing you play in person at the Lehigh v. Lafayette game.
From the Lehigh Football Nation Blog:
Offensive Player of the Week
Chris Lum, QB, Lehigh Sr., 6-2, 205 (Lake Orion, Mich./Lake Orion)
The Walter Payton Award candidate carried his brilliant season into Patriot League play, as Lum completed 30-of-37 passes for 368 yards and four touchdowns as No. 10 Lehigh defeated Bucknell 30-6 in its League opener on Saturday. Lum put the Mountain Hawks in cruise control in the second quarter with touchdown passes to Jimmy Jefferson, Jake Drwal and Ryan Spadola, then connected with Spadola again in the third to complete the scoring. Lum has thrown for over 300 yards in all six of Lehigh's games this season and leads the country in passing yards, total offense and touchdown passes. It was his fourth game with four touchdown passes or more this season. Lum wins the Patriot League Offensive Player of the Week honor for the fourth time this season, and sixth in his career all over the past 10 selections of the award.
