Salisbury University junior Randal Smedley, once an offensive stalwart for the St. John’s Catholic Prep football team, had the day of his college career, on Saturday, when scored four touchdowns in Salisbury’s 31-7 win over Apprentice School (VA).
Smedley carried the ball 21 times in the contest and rushed for a whopping 250 yards. He ran 80 yards for a score in the second quarter and also had scoring runs of one, five and seven yards.
The 250 yards doubles Smedley’s previous career high of 121 yards, which he set last season against Frostburg State. The four touchdowns left Smedley one shy of the school mark. He is the first Salisbury player to surpass 200 yards rushing in a game since 2004.
Smedley now has 613 yards rushing in five games this fall with seven touchdowns. He is averaging a team best 122.6 yards per game and 8.9 yards per carry.
