Providence, RI - Brown senior wide receiver Paul Raymond (Miami, FL) and senior offensive guard AJ Tracey (Midwest City, OK) have been named CoSIDA/ESPN The Magazine District I Academic All-Americans. The team is selected by voting members of the College Sports Information Directors of American (CoSIDA).
An Economics concentrator with a 3.55 grade point average, Raymond is one of the nation's top wide receivers. He leads the Ivy League with 100.5 yards per game, seventh best in the nation, while his 5.75 receptions per game rank 20th in the nation. Raymond's 107 career receptions are ninth best in the Brown record book, and his 1,626 career receiving yards are seventh best in Brown football history. His 323 all-purpose yards against Rhode Island earlier this year (221 receiving yards, 102 kickoff return yards) are fifth in the Ivy League record book.
Tracey, an Economics concentrator with a 3.61 GPA, has been a mainstay of the Brown offensive line for the last three years. A team captain and two-year starter, Tracey is most dominant player on the offensive line, as an offensive guard for one of the nation's leading passing offenses with 300.2 yards per game. A strong writer, Tracey also wrote a blog for the New York Times about his experiences prior to the Harvard football game.
Both Raymond and Tracey will be back in action for the Bears on Saturday, November 10, against Dartmouth at Brown Stadium.
