SMITHFIELD, R.I. – Bryant University football freshman Isaac McCray (Middletown, R.I.) earned his second-straight Northeast Conference Rookie of the Week award on Monday afternoon.

McCray, who becomes the first Bulldog to win the award twice in the same season since Paul Canevari in 2013, posted 121 yards from scrimmage on just 13 touches against No. 15 New Hampshire last Saturday. He rushed for 48 yards on nine carries and caught four passes for 73 yards.

A week after rushing for 123 yards, McCray posted another breakout performance on Saturday night. He recorded four first downs on run plays and moved the chains twice through the air. McCray posted a long run of 22 yards and long reception of 40 yards in the contest.
