Washington, D.C. - Georgetown University freshman quarterback James Brady (Melville, N.Y./St. Anthony's) was named the Patriot League Rookie of the Week on Monday.
Brady and the Hoyas fell to league rival Lafayette, 24-6, in the conference opener for both schools on Saturday night in Easton, Pa.
In just his second collegiate game, Brady completed 12-of-28 passes for 141 yards. He did not throw a touchdown pass, but engineered a nine-play, 92-yard drive that resulted in Georgetown's lone score of the night, a two-yard run from fellow quarterback, sophomore Keerome Lawrence (New Haven, Conn./James Hillhouse).
During the 92-yard drive, Brady completed 6-of-9 passes for 90 yards. He started the drive with a 53-yard pass down the far sideline to senior tight end Collin Meador (Lyndhurst, Ohio/St. Ignatius Prep). He also threw a 20-yard pass to freshman Chancellor Logan (Kingston, R.I./Gunnery) and a 10-yard completion to junior Rick Cosgrove (Chalfont, Pa./LaSalle College H.S.).
Through two games this season, Brady has split time leading the Georgetown offense with Lawrence. Brady threw a 31-yard pass to senior Kenny Mitchell (Atlanta, Ga./Westlake) to lift the Hoyas to a 12-7 season-opening win over Howard in the Inaugural D.C. Cup on Sept. 7.
Brady has completed 50.0 percent of his passes (24-of-48) for 272 yards and one touchdown.
Georgetown (1-1, 0-1 Patriot League) travels to Connecticut for a non-league contest against Yale on Saturday, Sept. 20. Kickoff at the venerable Yale Bowl is slated for 12:30 p.m.
