Villanova sophomore running back Aaron Forbes has been named the Offensive Player of the Week by CAA Football.

Forbes had a career day in Villanova’s 24-13 win over Albany on Homecoming Weekend. He rushed the ball 24 times and tallied 151 yards and 2 touchdowns. It was Forbes’ second 100-yard game of the season and of his career. On the season, he’s run for 600 yards (7.6 yards per carry) and a team-best 7 touchdowns.

Villanova has one of the best stables of running backs in the conference with Matt Gudzak and Javon White, but Forbes has taken the lead-back role and made it his with his play this season.
