Victor Named to STATS Offensive Player of the Year Watch List

TOWSON, Md. – Towson University senior running back Darius Victor was one of 22 players named to the 2016 STATS Preseason Offensive Player of the Year Watch List.  It marks the second-straight year that Victor has been named to this prestigious list.
Earlier this week, Victor was named a STATS Preseason Third-Team All-American.  He was also named Preseason First-Team All-CAA at the league's annual Media Day on July 26.
Victor enters his final season looking to become just the second Towson running back to rush for over 1,000 yards in three-straight seasons.  Victor currently ranks fourth on the all-time rushing list with 2,955 yards and second in rushing touchdowns (34).
He is coming off a season in which he battled injuries, but managed to rush for 1,021 yards and 15 touchdowns.  He had four 100-yard rushing performances, including a career-high 207 yards and three touchdowns in a victory over Holy Cross.  He also scored at least one touchdown in nine of the 11 games.
The Tigers report for fall camp Aug. 7 in preparation for the 2016 season opener Sept. 3 at South Florida.  Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. and can be seen live on ESPN3.
