Updated: December 20, 2013

Florence, AL ( – Bloomsburg running back Franklyn Quiteh was
named the 2013 winner of the Harlon Hill Trophy, honoring the nation’s top
Division II football player.

Quiteh, who finished third in voting for the award last season, led the D-II
ranks with 2,195 rushing yards and 29 touchdowns on the ground during a
tremendous senior campaign. The Pennsylvania native eclipsed the 200-yard mark
in six of Bloomsburg’s 12 games, including a school-record 304 yards against
East Stroudsburg.

His efforts helped the Huskies to a 10-2 record and a PSAC championship along
with a first-round bye in the NCAA Division II playoffs.

Quiteh is the second Bloomsburg player to earn the Harlon Hill Trophy, also
referred to as the Division II Heisman, joining Irv Sigler in 1997.

West Texas A&M quarterback Dustin Vaughn and Henderson State signal-caller
Kevin Rodgers were this year’s other two finalists.
