Former Southeast High standout Chris Hart continues to lead Towson University in passing, rushing and total offense.
The junior quarterback ran for 83 yards on 14 carries, but struggled with his passing completing only 8 of 24 pass attempts in his team’s 17-13 loss to James Madison, the FCS (I-AA) team that upset Virginia Tech earlier this year.
It was Hart’s best running game since the season opener when he rushed for 125 yards on 16 carries against Indiana in a 51-17 loss. It also marked his second straight game without an interception.
Hart, who was in a battle to hold onto his quarterback job, played nearly the entire game against James Madison and did not turn the ball over. His tendency to commit turnovers earlier in the season put him a risk to lose his job.
Hart has rushed for a net 336 yards this season, which ranks first in the Colonial Athletic Association among quarterbacks. He ranks 8th in the league in total offense.
