Posted on Oct 8 2016 - 11:47am by Danny Beeck

Duquesne, fresh off of a dominant performance against a big win against Jacksonville, takes on Robert Morris University this week at Rooney Field.

The Dukes proved their rushing game works yet again, with A.J. Hines receiving Northeast Conference (NEC) Rookie of the Week for the fourth straight week, while totaling 145 yards on the ground along with a 11 yard touchdown catch.

Joining Hines in the spotlight this week, was teammate Wayne Capers Jr., as he was named NEC Offensive Player of the Week when he caught nine passes for 235 yards and four touchdowns, which tied the school record for TD’s in a single game.

Looking forward to this weeks game against RMU, Dillon Buechel is tied the school record of six touchdowns in a single contest, helping his team win big, 54-35. RMU will also have to match up to the strong rushing game with A.J. Hines, putting up 507 yards, along with five touchdowns so far. Robert Morris
