Football / Running Back / Freshman / Addison, Ill.
Nicholas D'Ambrose is a first-year running back for the UChicago football team. In Saturday's 63-0 win at Beloit College, D'Ambrose set new career highs with 180 rushing yards and three touchdowns. He ripped off four runs of at least 28 yards.
Head Coach Chris Wilkerson: "Nick has done an amazing job picking up the offense and continuing to grow. In his first start Saturday, he rushed 13 times for 180 yards and three touchdowns to help us secure a 63-0 victory. Through the first seven games, he leads our team in rushing yards (317) and touchdown scored (9). His abilities to be patient and then accelerate through the holes and find the end zone are amazing. Not only is Nick a great ball carrier, but he also takes a great deal of pride in blocking as well. He's willing to do the little things to help our team succeed, and we're excited to see how he develops as a player going forward."
