FAIRFIELD, Conn. (October 13, 2008) - R-Sophomore Dale Fink (Swansea, IL) of the football team has been named the Enterprise Rent-A-Car/Sacred Heart University Student Athlete of the Week for the week ending October 12th.
Quarterback Dale Fink finished 20-of-31 for 214 yards and four touchdowns, tying the Pioneer school record for TD throws in a game as he led SHU to a 41-24 win at Saint Francis (PA). In his short career, Fink has three times thrown for four touchdowns in a game to tie the school mark. The sophomore signal caller completed passes to eight different receivers in the win. Hitting touchdown passes to freshman Garry Coles, 17 yards, junior Steve Tedesco, 4 yards and 25 yards, and r-sophomore tight end Tom Stripe, 9 yards.
Fink has 15 touchdown passes on the season, giving him 38 in his 15-game career, a mark that leaves him two off the school record for career touchdown throws. Fink is closing in on the record held by Justin Holtfreter, who set the record over the two seasons he played for the Pioneers in 2000 and 2001, a total of 22 games. The r-sophomore signal caller is completing 67.8% (122-180-7) of his passes for 1,279 yards on the season.
Fink and the Pioneers play host to Albany, the defending NEC Champion, this Saturday at 1 pm.
