Breaking records – making history
WCSU Colonials: Unprecedented college football

DANBURY, CONN. — If it’s not enough that the Colonials are dominating the regional division with a slew of record-breaking stats and a winning record, running back Octavias McKoy has made football history.

From ESPN to the NFL, McKoy’s recent 455-yard single-game rushing record and 15 touchdowns in three games have earned him national recognition.

The WCSU senior from Stratford rushed for an NCAA all-divisions 455 yards in the Colonials' 55-35 win over Worcester State University on Oct. 26.

The following day, McKoy was honored on ESPN's “College Football Live” with a helmet sticker, an honor usually given exclusively to top performers at the Division I level. On Monday, he appeared on ESPN's “SportsCenter” broadcast.

The Colonials close out the season against the Umass-Dartmouth Corsairs on Saturday, Nov. 2, before celebrating Senior Day at the Westside Athletic Complex against Westfield State on Nov. 16.
