FLORENCE, Ala. -- Bloomsburg running back Franklyn Quiteh won the Harlon Hill Trophy as the NCAA Division II player of the year.

Quiteh, a three-time Harlon Hill finalist, was the national leader with 2,195 yards rushing and 29 rushing touchdowns. He also led the nation in scoring and is the first Division II player to post three 2,000-yard rushing seasons.

Quiteh has a Division II-record 42 100-yard games.

He finished third in last year's Harlon Hill voting and sixth in 2010.

Quiteh had 182 total points, 36 more than the runner-up, West Texas A&M quarterback Dustin Vaughan. Henderson State quarterback Kevin Rodgers was third with 100 points.

The award was presented Friday, the eve of the Division II championship game. It is voted on by sports information directors.
