Lutgens And Dewey Voted To N. E. Football Writers’ All-Star Team

SPRINGFIELD, Mass., Nov. 23, 2004 – Springfield College seniors Tim Lutgens and Brian Dewey were voted to the New England Football Writers’ Division II/III Football All-Star team.

Lutgens and Dewey, along with Gold Helmet Award winner Andre Clayton will be honored as part of this 28-member team at the New England Football Writers’ Banquet on Thursday, Dec. 2 at Lantana’s Function Hall in Randolph, Mass.

Lutgens, who is from Greenwich, N.Y., was an Empire 8 Football All-Conference First-Team selection. He was also a D3Football.com Pre-season Second-Team All-American and a Football Gazette Pre-Season Third-Team All-American in 2004. Lutgens is the only back in school history to break the 1,000-yard barrier in consecutive seasons, rushing for a team-high 1,064 yards in ’04, and 1,307 yards last season. He also had 14 rushing touchdowns this season. In ’03, Lutgens was a Football Gazette First-Team All-Region honoree, an ECAC Division III Northeast Second-Team All-Star and an All-Freedom Football Conference (FFC) First-Team selection. He capped his career ranked third all-time at SC with 3,032 rushing yards and fourth with 35 rushing TDs.

Another first-team All-Empire 8 choice, Dewey, a right tackle from Victory Mills, N.Y., was a consensus preseason first-team All-American in 2004. In ’03, he earned D3Football.com First-Team All-America and Football Gazette Third-Team All-America accolades. He also picked up Football Gazette First-Team All-East Region, ECAC Division III Northeast First-Team All-Star, New England Football Writers’ Div. II-III All-Star and all-FFC first-team honors last season. A two-year starter, Dewey is a major reason why SC led college football in rushing (398.5 yards-per-game) in ’03, and is ranked second in Division III (384.9 ypg) this season.

Junior fullback Andre Clayton is The Boston Globe Gold Helmet College Division Award winner. This award is presented on a weekly basis to the top Division II or III player based on his performance in the previous weekend’s games.

Clayton, a native of Manchester, Conn., led the Pride to a 53-7 win over Fitchburg State in the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Division III North Atlantic Championship (Nov. 20). He rushed for a team-high 112 yards and scored two first-half touchdowns (five and two yards) as SC piled up 432 yards on the ground.

Clayton led the Pride (8-2 overall) in yards-per-carry (7.1 avg.) and was third on the team with 600 rushing yards and six rushing touchdowns.
