CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Brown quarterback Kyle Newhall-Caballero and Bentley running back Bobby Tarr have been named the New England Football Writers’ Gridiron Club of Greater Boston Gold Helmet Award winners for week three of the 2011 football season.

After missing the final seven games of the 2010 campaign with a broken wrist, Newhall-Caballero was a key cog in the Bears 21-20 come-from-behind victory against Stony Brook this past weekend. The Gilbert, Ariz., native guided his team on a 57-yard scoring drive capping it off with a 12-yard touchdown pass to Tellef Lundervall with 3:06 left in the fourth quarter to seal the victory for the Bears. Newhall-Caballero finished the day completing 22 of 37 attempts registering 292 yards and three touchdowns in the game.

 Bentley running back Bobby Tarr rushed for a career-best 170 yards on only 16 carries in a victory over Stonehill. This would be the first time in eight years that a Falcon running back would tally that many yards. Tarr added 42 receiving yards to his historic day as the Falcons would come up victorious against the Skyhawks 31-12.
