PRINCETON, N.J. - Harvard freshman running back Treavor Scales has been named as the Ivy League Rookie of the Week in an announcement from the league office Monday afternoon.
Scales scored the first two rushing touchdowns of his career and added 92 rushing yards on 23 carries (4.0 yards per carry) in a 28-10 win at Cornell on Saturday. The Stone Mountain, Ga. native had touchdown runs of five and three yards as Harvard remained atop the league standings with a 2-0 record.
Scales was a part of a Harvard rushing attack that totaled 251 yards on the ground and accounted all four touchdowns against the Big Red.
Fellow running back Gino Gordon rushed for 137 yards on 22 carries (6.2 yards per carry) and the eventual game-winning touchdown in the game. He added 13 receiving yards in his second career 100-yard rushing game.
Thomas Hull was also named to the weekly Honor Roll, joining Gordon. Of his six punts against Cornell, Hull pinned three of them inside the Big Red's 10-yard line including two inside the five-yard line.
