11/09/12 - At 6-foot-5 and 250 pounds, RPI's Mike Hermann isn't your typical Division III quarterback, not by any stretch. Sure, he stands out, and his 4.64-second speed in the 40-yard dash has enticed nearly every NFL team to come more than once to take a closer look. ''It's obviously overwhelming, a small D-III school,'' Hermann said. ''I'd always hoped for the opportunity, but it just happened so fast. They showed up one day and the next thing you know I was running my 40-yard dash for them.'' Running. Seems like the big guy has never stopped. In his first three seasons, Hermann passed for 4,821 yards and 34 touchdowns, and ran for 1,425 yards and 22 TDs. In eight games this year for RPI (5-3), Hermann has rushed for 469 yards and six TDs with a long of 88 yards and has completed 60 percent of his passes for 2,080 yards and 21 TDs with eight interceptions. That's 2,549 yards of total offense, or 78 percent of RPI's total of 3,262 as a team. A stellar game Saturday in the season finale at home against upstate New York rival Union will push his career totals for total offense close to 9,000 yards. ''It's hard to characterize or put into words,'' RPI coach Bob Bodor said. ''His football ability and his productivity speak to his character and to his commitment. To be that committed is more than admirable. He's pretty special. He was offensive player of the year last year as a junior and the coaches elected him. To be elected that and not be in the running for the championship, I think tells you what the other coaches felt about Mike.'' - AP Sports
