Before the game, the Lehigh sports social media team had some graphics ready for a record that senior WR Troy Pelletier had a high probability of breaking today.
Troy, or “The Doctor”, as I call him, had to get 60 yards receiving to beat the Patriot League record for receiving yardage.
After he skied past that record, the social media folks had to keep assembling a lot more graphics.
By the end of the game, more records would be falling left and right. The career Patriot League touchdown record – the first time since 2001 since a Lehigh player nabbed 4 touchdown receptions in a game. Somewhere in the fourth quarter, he’d grab his 16th reception, breaking his own record for receptions in a game.
In the end, Lehigh cruised, never trailing in a 54-28 win over the Hoyas, but the story was Pelletier, whose amazing 16 catch, 197 yard, 4 TD game was the talk afterwards.
