CHARLESTON, S.C. (Nov. 15, 2018) – ETSU redshirt freshman running back Quay Holmes (Powder Springs, Ga.) was named to the College Football Performance Awards (CFPA) National Performer of the Year Trophy watch list, which was announced Thursday by the CFPA committee.
Holmes is one of 32 players across the FCS level to be placed on the list, with the award winner being announced on Jan. 9, 2019.
This season, Holmes has rushed for 750 yards and 12 touchdowns, while adding 30 receptions for 206 yards and two touchdowns and 262 kickoff return yards in 10 games for the Blue and Gold. Holmes’ 14 total touchdowns ranks fifth among FCS players, while also ranking 13th in rushing touchdowns (12), 14th in kickoff return yards (27.2), 21st in scoring (8.4), 31st in all-purpose yards (121.8) and 47th in rushing yards (750).
Holmes is just the third player in ETSU history to rush for over 10 touchdowns in one season, while his 14 total touchdowns tops all Southern Conference running backs and wide receivers. The Buccaneer running back has recorded four 100-yard rushing games, including a 102-yard, 2-touchdown performance in the win over Furman, which led to Holmes being named STATS FCS National Freshman of the Week.
Holmes and the Bucs are gearing up for the 2018 regular season finale this Saturday when ETSU hosts Samford for the chance to win the SoCon championship outright. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. inside Greene Stadium.
