09/13/16 - (FS) - David Jones, rSr, 6-2, 210
David Jones returned a punt 68 yards for a touchdown and Kyle Lauretta threw a pair of touchdown passes as Richmond blanked Norfolk State 34-0 in the Spiders home opener Saturday. It was Richmond's 11th straight win to start the season at home. Lauretta threw for 337 yards and three touchdowns last week in the Spiders' upset win over Virginia and was named the Colonial Athletic Association Offensive Player of the Week. This week he was 15 of 27 for 216 yards and had scoring passes of 21 and 51-yards but was intercepted twice. Jones got Richmond on the board with his punt return with 1:06 left in the first quarter and Lauretta fired 21 yards to Tyler Wilkins in the second quarter to make it 14-0 at intermission. Lauretta connected with Brian Brown early in third quarter to make it 21-0. Griffin Trau added field goals from 37 and 35-yards out. - AP Sports

09/07/16 - (QB) - Kyle Lauletta, rJr, 6-2, 215
Kyle Lauletta and Richmond believed they had a legitimate shot in their game against Virginia, even though the Spiders play in the Football Championship Subdivision and the Cavaliers are in one of the Power Five conference. But even Lauletta never expected the Spiders to dominate. They did Saturday as the senior threw for 337 yards and three touchdowns, the defense held Virginia to negative rushing yards heading into the fourth quarter and the Spiders rolled to a 37-20 victory, spoiling Bronco Mendenhall's debut at Virginia. "When we can run and pass like that, we're tough to beat," the redshirt junior said.

The Spiders outgained Virginia 524-302 in winning for just the third time in 33 meetings in the series. The victory was the fourth in Richmond's last nine meetings with an FBS-level school, but its first victory against the Cavaliers since 1946. Lauletta, the preseason offensive player of the year in the Colonial Athletic Association, teamed up with Tyler Wilkins for scoring throws of 11 and 5 yards, and hit Brian Brown for 11 yards. He also sidestepped Virginia's pressure on several occasions. "We responded extremely well to adversity and we answered, really, every time we had to answer throughout the course of the game," said Spiders coach Danny Rocco, whose team reached the FCS semifinals last season. "Our team expected to win." - AP Sports

09/07/16 - (QB) - Kyle Lauletta, rJr, 6-2, 215
Richmond dominates Virginia in Mendenhall's debut...First-year coach Bronco Mendenhall's Virginia debut was spoiled by in-state foe Richmond as the Cavaliers were dominated on both sides of the ball in a 37-20 loss to the Spiders on Saturday afternoon at Charlottesville, Va. The win marked Richmond's first triumph over the Cavaliers since the 1946 season. Quarterback Kyle Lauletta paced the Spiders' offense completing 24 of 35 pass attempts for 337 yards and three touchdowns. Richmond (1-0) controlled the game from the opening kickoff as it scored on its first four possessions of the first half, which included three field goals and an 11-yard touchdown pass by Lauletta. The Spiders were relentless on offense and defense as they out-gained Virginia (0-1) 530-302. Running back Gordon Collins ripped off 114 yards on the ground, including a 55-yard touchdown run to seal the game for the Spiders late in the fourth quarter. Virginia was stifled by Richmond's defense as it managed just 38 yards on the ground and turned the ball over four times, which included three fumbles. - The Sports Xchange

12/12/15 - (RB) - Jacobi Green, Sr, 5-09, 204
Danny Rocco found it difficult to put Jacobi Green's night into words. But then the Richmond football coach managed to find one. Exceptional. Green scored four touchdowns and the Spiders amassed 557 yards in a 39-27 victory over No. 2-seeded Illinois State in the Football Championship Subdivision quarterfinals on Friday night. The No. 7-seeded Spiders (10-3) advance to next weekend's FCS semifinals against either No. 3-seed North Dakota State or Northern Iowa. "We've had a couple of performances this year that I thought were exceptional performances - and we had one today," Rocco said. "I knew we were capable of playing a game like this on the road."

Green, who ran for 137 yards, scored on touchdown runs of 28, 27 yards and 2 yards. The senior running back also had a 35-yard touchdown catch from Kyle Lauletta, who threw for 369 yards on 18-of-29 passing for the Spiders. Green and Lauletta sparked Richmond's offense, which proved to be too much for Illinois State (10-3). "We knew we were going to have to make plays," Lauletta said. "We just made one more play than them each time. "It just seemed like we kept making that play we needed to." - AP Sports

12/05/15 - (RB) - Jacobi Green, Sr, 5-09, 204
Jacobi Green ran for 141 yards and three touchdowns to help lead Richmond to a 48-13 victory over William & Mary in an FCS second round playoff game on Saturday. Richmond (9-3), which has now defeated its arch rival in consecutive games, awaits the winner of Illinois State and Western Illinois in the quarterfinals. The Spiders beat the Tribe 20-9 on November 21. David Broadus finished with 60 yards and a touchdown on the ground and quarterback Kyle Lauletta added two more rushing scores for the Spiders, who ran 59 times for 302 yards total. David Jones had an interception and 100 yard return for a score in the second quarter, which gave Richmond a 21-3 lead. The Spiders led 28-10 at halftime and 35-13 after three quarters. Steve Cluley struggled for William & Mary (9-4), throwing for just 79 yards and three interceptions. The Tribe had four turnovers overall. - AP Sports

11/03/15 - (RB) - Jacobi Green, Sr, 5-09, 204
Jacobi Green ran for 186 yards with two touchdowns and Richmond held off Albany 38-31 on Saturday. Kyle Lauletta was 20 of 33 for 293 yards and two scores. Albany (2-6, 1-4 Colonial) trailed by 28 midway through the third, but made a game of it. Dione Alston's 96-yard kickoff return TD provided a spark, and then Neven Sussman found Anthony Manzo-Lewis from 14 yards out to get within two scores. In the fourth, a short punt set up Sussman's 4-yard score to make it 38-31. But Peter Yoder missed a 26-yard try with 4:14 left and the Great Danes ran out of time on their last possession. Richmond (7-1, 5-0) ran up a 17-0 score in the first quarter on Lauletta's 15-yard run and 40-yard pass to Brian Brown. Green's 1-yard plunge put the Spiders up 24-10 at halftime. Green made it 31-10 with a 3-yard touchdown run, and next series Lauletta found Reggie Diggs from 13 yards. - AP Sports

10/26/15 - (RB) - Jacobi Green, Sr, 5-09, 204
Jacobi Green ran for 236 yards on 27 carries and scored five touchdowns to help lead Richmond to a 59-49 win over undefeated James Madison on Saturday. The loss snaps the Dukes school-record 14 game regular season winning streak. Kyle Lauletta threw for 415 yards and two touchdowns and Brian Brown added 204 yards receiving for Richmond (6-1, 4-0 Colonial Athletic Association). A Bryan Schor 7-yard TD pass to Rashard Davis cut the Dukes' (7-1, 4-1) deficit to 52-49 with 4:02 left. But Richmond responded on the ensuing possession, driving 69 yards on four plays capped by a Green 1-yard scoring run, pushing the lead back to 10. A James Madison fumble by Cardon Johnson on the proceeding kickoff sealed the game for Richmond. Vad Lee threw for 294 yards, ran for 124, and had five touchdowns for James Madison. The teams combined for 1,305 yards of offense. - AP Sports

Reggie Diggs hauled in a 36-yard touchdown pass from Kyle Lauletta midway through the fourth quarter to help Richmond get past Hampton 31-28 on Saturday.

Villanova's Steve Weyler kicked a 24-yard field goal and John Robertson hit Lincoln Collins with a 5-yard scoring pass to give the Wildcats a 9-3 third-quarter lead. But Weyler missed the point-after attempt and Rocco capped the Spiders' next drive with a 15-yard scoring run. Rocco was 21 of 42 for 314 yards passing with two interceptions and gained 15 yards on eight carries. Brian Brown caught eight passes for 119 yards for the Spiders.

02/19/14 - (DE) - Kerry Wynn, rSr, 6-5, 266
Kerry Wynn graduated from the University of Richmond with a history degree. He’s going back in time as a football player, in terms of position. Wynn, a 6-foot-5 270-pounder from Louisa, began his Spiders career as a defensive end. He played primarily inside, as a tackle, during his final two seasons at UR. As Wynn preps for this weekend’s NFL combine, he is viewed as a prospect at defensive end. Some teams see him as a potential outside linebacker. “They fit my body type and my overall abilities,” Wynn, who reported to UR as a 205-pound freshman, said of end and linebacker.

He leaves for Indianapolis on Friday, and “then it’s a pretty busy four-day period from what I hear,” Wynn said. “Everything I’ve been doing up to this time is training and gearing up for the combine. So I feel like I’m prepared and ready to go and will put my best foot forward. I’m excited for the opportunity.” On the recommendation of his agent, Wynn has been working out at a training facility in Pensacola, Fla. Before that, he participated in the East-West Shrine Game in St. Petersburg, Fla., on Jan. 18. “I think I did a lot of positive things there, definitely left my mark, I would say,” said Wynn. “It wasn’t perfect, not every play is going to be perfect, but I think I had a good week of practice and the game went well for me, too.” - John O’Connor, Richmond Times-Dispatch
