12/13/2011 5:03 PM - JACKSONVILLE – The ArenaBowl XXIV Champion Jacksonville Sharks secured another offensive weapon on Tuesday, announcing that wide receiver Bobby Sewall has been assigned to the team’s 2012 roster.
The 23-year-old Sewall (6’1”, 195) most recently spent time with the Tennessee Titans during the 2010 season. He appeared in three preseason games with the team, though he did not catch a pass.
Sewall spent four years at Brown University, where he put together a stellar collegiate career. After working his way into the lineup as a freshman (7 receptions, 55 yards), he caught at least 66 passes in each of his final three years at the school. He recorded a career-high 69 catches for 948 yards and eight touchdowns as a junior in 2008, leading the team in all three categories. Overall, Sewall racked up 210 receptions for 2,141 yards and 16 touchdowns at Brown.
In addition to his work at receiver, Sewall also emerged as a threat when carrying the football. He led the Bears with 304 rushing yards and eight touchdowns in 2007 and again set the pace with six rushing touchdowns the following year. During his collegiate career, Sewall carried the ball 121 times for 581 yards and 18 touchdowns.
Sewall is a native of Portsmouth, RI.
