Bryce Brown (left) capped his first season at Western New England with a spectacular performance, rushing for a school-record 307 yards -- and 467 yards of total offense -- in a 66-41 victory against Maine Maritime in the ECAC North Central Championship Bowl.

His first start of 2011 on Saturday wasn't bad either. The senior from Guilford, Connecticut accounted for all four touchdowns, including the go-ahead 3-yard scamper score with 1:43 remaining, to the lift the Golden Bears to a 28-24 win over Norwich.


Brown is the first recipient of the Division 2-3 Gold Helmet this season from the Gridiron Club of Greater Boston, presented by the New England Football Writers. He was also honored with a helmet for his season-ending performance last year against Maine Maritime.

"Bryce became a difference maker for us in 2010," said WNE coach Keith Emery. "The pressure will be on him to do it again this year now with a target on his back." Brown started his college career down the street at Springfield College, before transferring to Sacred Heart for his sophomore year. After arriving at Western New England last fall, he earned the starting QB job in the fourth game and led the Golden Bears in rushing (894 yards, 5.7 average per carry) and 10 touchdowns.

University of Maine senior back Pushaun Brown earned Division 1 honors after rushing for 146 yards and two touchdowns in a season-opening 28-13 win over visiting Bryant.

Congratulatons to Stonehill coach Robert Talley and his wife, Sarah; their second son, 9-pound, 3-ounce, 22-inch Spencer, arrived Wednesday morning at 9:30.
