Providence, RI - The awards keep coming in for Brown sophomore wide receiver Bobby Sewall (Portsmouth, RI) for his incredible performance in Brown's 56-35 win over Dartmouth on Saturday. After earning Ivy League Offensive Player of the Week honors earlier in the week, Sewall has been named the College Sporting News National Player of the Week, and the New England Football Writers/Boston Globe Gold Helmet Award winner.
Sewall rushed for four touchdowns (one, two, one, 44 yards) and threw for a fifth in Brown's win over the Big Green. His touchdown pass was a perfect 41-yard throw, connecting with sophomore Buddy Farnham over the top of the defense at the goal line.
Sewall's amazing effort was a combination of rushing, passing and receiving. He rushed for 144 yards on 15 carries, and made 18 receptions for 141 yards. His 18 receptions are fourth best in the Brown record book and a national FCS season high. Sewall's receiving prowess helped Bears' quarterback Michael Dougherty completed a school record 82 percent of his passes (41 of 51, 403 yards).
Sewall is the only Division I player to rush and catch for 140 yards in the same game this season. Sewall also played on the defensive side of the ball at free safety on Dartmouth's final offensive series. Overall, Sewall accounted for 326 total yards.
