Providence, RI - Brown freshman kicker/punter Steve Morgan (New Albany, OH) was named the Ivy League Rookie of the Week following his near flawless performance in Brown's 35-7 victory over Albany on Saturday at Brown Stadium, a game that was played in a driving rainstorm.
In his collegiate debut, Morgan booted 5 of 5 extra points and punted four times for 137 yards in the inclement weather. Twice while punting, Morgan came up with big plays. Both times he received errant snaps, and had to elude tacklers, get to the outside, and punt while on the run.
Morgan earned the starting job after a strong pre-season. He came to Brown following a standout career at New Albany High School.
The Bears will be back in action on Saturday at Brown Stadium against Harvard in the Ivy League opener for both teams.
