James Develin, Buddy Farnham and Paul Jasinowski Named All-New England

Providence, Rhode Island - Brown senior defensive end James Develin (Gilbertsville, PA), senior wide receiver Buddy Farnham (Andover, MA) and senior offensive tackle Paul Jasinowski (Washington, DC) have been named to the All-New England All-Star Team, as selected by the New England Football Writers. The trio will be honored at the New England Football Writers Annual Awards and Captains Banquet, December 10 at the Casa di Fior restaurant in Wilmington, MA.

A three-time All-Ivy selection, Develin, a mechanical engineering major at Brown, was a first team All-Ivy selection in 2009 after earning second team All-Ivy honors in 2007 and 2008. He led the Ivy League and ranked sixth in the nation in tackles for a loss with 16 (1.6 per game). Develin made big play after big play for the Bears. He came up with a game-ending tackle against Dartmouth, stopping the Big Green for a loss of two yards on the final play of overtime.

Develin dominated Brown’s game against Ivy Champion Penn with 3.5 tackles for a loss, including a quarterback sack for a loss of eight yards. He came up with a big play against Cornell, turning the momentum of the game in Brown’s favor by intercepting a pass and returning it 28 yards to the Big Red six yard line, setting up Brown’s go-ahead touchdown. He finished the season with 53 total tackles and five quarterback sacks.

Farnham, the Ivy League Player of the Year and an Organizational Studies concentrator at Brown, will also be recognized at the banquet as the New England Football Writers Gold Helmet of the Year, signifying the outstanding player in New England. A three-time All-New England selection, Farnham completed the 2009 season with 1,003 receiving yards, the eight receiver in Brown history to go over 1,000 yards. His 100.3 receiving yards per game rank fifth in the nation, while his 74 receptions (7.4 per game) in 2009 rank eighth nationally.

In terms of career achievements, Farnham’s 229 career receptions are sixth in the Ivy record book, his 2,895 career yards are seventh all time in Ivy football history, while his 4,813 all-purpose yards are seventh in the Ivy record book. Farnham also established a new Brown record for punt return yards in a career. He established a new Brown record for punt return yards (636 yards), eclipsing the previous mark of 620 yards by Stephen Campbell from 1997-2000. Farnham finished second in the Brown record book with 1,167 career yards.

An economics/urban studies major, Jasinowski has set the standard for excellence on the playing field and in the classroom. He earned All-Ivy honors for the third time in his career and is now a two-time first team All-Ivy selection. Jasinowski helped Brown to the Ivy League’s number one offense with 396.6 yards of total offense, while the Bears were second in scoring with 24.1 points per game.

He is also a finalist in the prestigious National Football Foundation 2009 National Scholar-Athlete class, and is one of 16 finalists who will vie for the William V. Campbell Trophy. He was recently named second team CoSIDA Academic All-American.
