Football's Sewall '10 steals national spotlight

After a brilliant all-around performance in the football team's 56-35 victory over Dartmouth, Bobby Sewall '10 was recognized at the national level for his outstanding play. Sewall, officially listed on the roster as a wide receiver, caught 18 passes for 141 yards on Saturday. The 18 receptions in a single game were the fourth most in Brown history.

But even more remarkable were Sewall's contributions outside of his normal responsibilities. Against the Big Green, Sewall also served as the Bears' primary running back. He carried the ball 15 times for 144 yards and four touchdowns.

On a day when quarterback Michael Dougherty '09 set a school record by completing 82 percent of his passes (41 of 50), Sewall even upstaged his own quarterback. The play after Brown recovered a Dartmouth fumble with only 20 seconds left, Sewall threw a 41-yard touchdown pass to Buddy Farnham '10 on a trick play to boost Brown's lead to 28-14 at the half. Sewall even saw action as a defensive back on Brown's last defensive series of the game.

In recognition of his performance, Sewall has been named the Ivy League Offensive Player of the Week, the College Sporting News National Player of the Week and the winner of the New England Football Writers/Boston Globe Gold Helmet Award.

The Bears close out their season at Columbia this Saturday.
