Oct. 29, 2003

Brown University Athletics will be offering free lapel pins to the first 5,000 fans at the Brown - Penn football game on Saturday, November 1. The pins, which feature Brown football's 125th Anniversary logo were made available through a partnership with Sovereign Bank, the official sponsor of Browns 125th anniversary season. Game time is 12:30pm and will be broadcast live on Cox channel 3 in Providence.

"Sovereign Bank has helped create a very memorable 125th anniversary season for Brown football and we are looking toward a great long-term relationship with them," commented Mike Kohler, Assistant AD for Marketing.

The 125th anniversary celebration will run throughout the football season and culminate with the announcement of the 125th Anniversary Team at the gala dinner this Saturday. Players named to the All-Decade Teams will be eligible for Brown's 125th Anniversary Team, featuring the top 50 players (22 on offense, 22 on defense, and 6 on special teams) in Brown football history. The 125th Anniversary Team was voted on by alumni and fans at games and on the internet at www.brownbears.com.
