Freshman running back Emmanuel Marc (Spring Valley, NY/Spring Valley High School) rushed for 265 yards and a school-record five touchdowns to lead Hudson Valley Community College to a 38-10 win over Union JV earlier today in Troy.

Hudson Valley finishes the season with a 4-5 mark while Union JV drops to 2-3.

In addition to his five scores, Marc dented the Hudson Valley record book in other ways as well. He finished the season with 1,235 rushing yards, which puts him second on the school's single season list behind only Dan Vergine, who had 1,250 yards in 1999. His 265 rushing yards today is second to only Dwight Slater's 294 yards against Siena in 1975.

Marc became only the fourth player in Hudson Valley history to rush for over 1,000 yards in a season when he took the ball up the right side for a 69-yard touchdown on the team's second play from scrimmage.

Following a Union field goal, Marc was off to the races again for a 73 yard score on Hudson Valley's fourth offensive play. He also scored on runs of 17, 26 and 10 yards in the game.

The Hudson Valley defense was no less impressive, amassing 10 sacks on the day, including four by Shadee Davis (New Brunswick, NJ/New Brunswick High School) and three each by Frantzy Dorlean (Spring Valley, NY/Ramapo High School) and James Delpeche (Canarsie, NY/Canarsie High School). Davis finished with seven sacks on the year and completed his career in second place on the school's all-time sack list with 14.5.

Despite the constant pressure, Union quarterback Jeff Mahan (Carmel, NY/Carmel High School) completed 13 of 22 passes for 133 yards and one touchdown. Freshman running back Robert Vase (Minneapolis, MN/Breck School) carried the ball seven times for 66 yards to lead the Dutchmen.
