Michael Walsh Named Ivy League Special Teams Player Of The Week

Providence, R.I. - Brown sophomore free safety Michael Walsh (Swampscott, Mass.) made the most of a special opportunity on special teams with a punt block return for a touchdown in the Bears' 39-17 loss to Princeton.

 

On the first play of the second quarter, junior defensive back Jacob Supron (Mansfield, OH) burst through the line and blocked a punt at the Tigers' five-yard line. Walsh scooped up the ball at the 18-yard line and ran into the end zone for his first career touchdown, giving the Bears a 17-0 advantage.

 

Walsh and his Brown teammates are back in action again on Saturday, October 26, traveling to Ithaca, NY to battle Cornell.  Game time is 12:30 p.m. at Schoellkopf Field.
