Alexander Jette Named Ivy League Rookie of the Week

Providence, R.I. - Brown freshman wide receiver/return specialist Alexander Jette (North Attleboro, Mass.) was dazzling as a punt returner in the Bears' 45-7 victory over Georgetown to open the season and was named the Ivy League's Rookie of the Week.

 

In his collegiate debut, Jette returned four punts 82 yards, averaging 20.5 yards per return, to help give the Brown offense excellent field position all game. His 82 total punt return yards rank 11th on Brown's single-game list for most punt return yards. Jette, who had punt returns of 30, 22, 20 and 10 yards, also made his first collegiate catch for five yards.

 

Brown is back in action again on Saturday evening, September 28, traveling to Boston, MA to battle Harvard. The game will be televised nationally on the NBC Sports Network, starting at 7:30 pm.
