Gino Gordon had 222 total yards in Harvard's 42-21 win over Dartmouth.

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Harvard running back Gino Gordon has been awarded the New England Football Writers Gold Helmet Award, presented by the Gridiron Club of Greater Boston. Earlier this week, Gordon received the Ivy League’s Player of the Week as well as the ECAC’s Co-Offensive Player of the Week awards.

Gordon became the first Harvard player to record 100 rushing and 100 receiving yards in a single game as he tallied 222 total yards in a 42-21 win over Dartmouth at Harvard Stadium on Saturday afternoon. He rushed for 119 yards on eight carries and caught the ball four times for 103 yards. He rushed for three touchdowns on the afternoon and did not lose a yard from scrimmage.

Gordon averaged 18.3 yards per touch, with 10 of 12 touches resulting in a first down or touchdown.

Since 2007, Harvard players have been honored eight times as the region’s top Division 1 performers. Chris Pizzotti ’08-09 was selected three times, and Doug Hewlett ’08, Eric Schultz ’09, Ryan Barnes ’10 and Collier Winters ’11 were all selected once. Additionally, Harvard has had at least one offensive player of the week from the Ivy League each season this decade.

The Crimson travels to Columbia this weekend for an Ivy League game set to kickoff at noon on Saturday.
