Providence, Rhode Island - Brown football coach Phil Estes announced that senior quarterback Kyle Newhall-Caballero (Gilbert, AZ), senior inside linebacker Andrew Serrano (Phoenix, AZ) and senior offensive tackle Patrick Conroy (Leesburg, VA) have been elected captains of the 2010 Brown football team.
“With Kyle, Andrew and Patrick, we have three tremendous leaders, who each lead by example on and off the field,” said Estes.
Newhall-Caballero is the Ivy League's First Team All-Ivy quarterback and an Academic All-American. He etched his name into the Brown and Ivy record book after completing 259 of 413 passes for 2,709 yards and 18 touchdowns. He ranked second in the nation in completions (25.9 per game), 10th in total offense (281.4 yards per game), and 12th nationally in passing yards (270.9 yards per game). His 259 completions rank seventh for a single season in the Ivy football history. Newhall-Caballero also set an Ivy League record with 46 completions against Holy Cross.
“Kyle is someone the team believed in when everyone thought we'd be weak at the quarterback position at the outset of the 2009 season,” said Estes. “He's extremely competitive, and is more than just a leader on the field. He leads in everything he does.”
Serrano made 32 tackles a year ago and is Brown's second leading returning tackler. He also had two tackles for a loss and a quarterback sack. A fierce player, Serrano made five tackles against both Rhode Island and Columbia, while making four tackles against Holy Cross, Princeton, and Penn.
“Andrew's actions speak volumes,” said Estes. “Pound for pound, he's one of our strongest players. He's always led the football team on and in workouts, and he's always first in line to compete. He has great awareness on the field and is a true team leader.”
Conroy, a two-year starter, returns to anchor the left side of the Bears offensive line at tackle. He helped lead the Ivy League's top offensive unit to 396.6 total yards per game, and an Ivy League leading 2,709 passing yards.
“Patrick is a no-nonsense guy, who puts everything into the game,” said Estes. “He doesn't have much to say verbally, but his actions on and off the field are an example to all.”
