Hanover College (Ind.) sophomore wide receiver Daniel Passafiume set a NCAA all-divisions single-game record with 25 receptions in the Panthers' 42-28 loss to Franklin College Nov. 14.
Passafiume (Louisville, Ky.: St. Xavier H.S.) had in 25 catches for 153 yards and two touchdowns. His effort surpasses the mark of 24 set by hall-of-fame receiver Jerry Rice and Chas Gessner.
Rice had 24 catches for Mississippi Valley State University in a 1983 game against Southern University. Gessner collected 24 balls for Brown University in a 2002 game against the University of Rhode Island.
Passafiume, who has ranked among the top receivers in NCAA III all season, capped the 2009 season with 114 receptions for 1,054 yards and 14 touchdowns.
