Yarmouth, Massachusetts, sophomore wide receiver named to All-New England team for first time in career, as one of eight selections from NE10
EASTON, Mass. (November 27, 2017) – Stonehill College sophomore wide receiver Andrew Jamiel (Yarmouth, Massachusetts/Dennis-Yarmouth) has earned a spot on the New England Football Writers' Division II/III All-Star team, the organization announced today. Jamiel is among eight Northeast-10 Conference student-athletes selected to the All-New England team.
Jamiel, a two-time All-NE10 selection after earning first team honors for the first time this fall, is named a New England Division II/III All-Star for the first time by the New England Football Writers. He is the eighth Stonehill football student-athlete to earn All-New England honors since 2010 and the second wide receiver, joining Nate Robitaille '15, who collected the honors in 2013. The team will be honored at the New England Football Writers Captains and Awards Banquet on Tuesday, December 5, at the Montvale Plaza, in Stoneham, Massachusetts.
Jamiel leads the NE10 for the second-straight year with 81 receptions, while ranking second nationally in Division II with 9.0 receptions per game after leading the country with a program-record matching 91 catches in 2016 – just two shy of the NCAA Division II record for freshmen. He is second in the NE10 with his career-best 1,035 receiving yards and third with his program-record matching 13 touchdown receptions, ranking seventh nationally with 115.0 receiving yards per game and 12th in touchdowns. His team-high 78 points scored this year rank sixth in the NE10 and is tied for second-best in program history.
Jamiel was named the NE10's Offensive Player of the Week for the second time in his career, while also receiving the National Football Foundation/Jack Grinold Eastern Massachusetts Division II/III Gold Helmet Award from the New England Football Writers Association and D2Football.com Offensive Player of the Week accolades, after matching his own program record with 18 receptions for an NE10 record 294 yards and NE10 and program-record matching five touchdowns in Stonehill's 56-30 win over Pace University on November 4. He owns four of the top five reception games in program history, having posted ten-plus catches three times this season (nine career) and five 100-yard receiving games (nine career), including his first 200-yard game.
The 2016 NE10 Rookie of the Year and second team All-NE10 performer, posted just the third 1,000-yard receiving season in program history this fall, matching Nate Robitaille's '15 2014 total which ranks second all-time in Stonehill history, while finishing third all-time for receptions in a season this season. His program-record matching 13 touchdowns fell just one shy of the program's all-time single-season touchdown record. Jamiel already ranks third in program history with his 172 career receptions and 20 career touchdown catches, while his 1,878 career yards rank sixth all-time after just two seasons.
Stonehill capped its 2017 season with a 6-4 record overall, marking its third finish above .500 over the last five years, including a 5-4 mark in the NE10, with its fourth winning season in Conference play over the last six years.
