Fairfield, CT (September 16, 2013) – Junior running back Sean Bell (Medford Lakes. NJ) was named this week's Northeast Conference Offensive Player of the Week.
Bell rushed for a career high 205 yards on 18 carries in the 45-3 victory over the Lincoln Lions on Saturday night, as the Pioneers are now 3-0. The junior averaged an incredible 11.4 yards per carry and became only the ninth pioneer in history to rush for over 200 yards in a game and the first since Evin Jones rushed for 210 yards against Assumption in 2008. The 11.4 yards per carry ranks third all-time in SHU history with a minimum of ten attempts in a game.
