Los Angeles, CA (CSTV U-WIRE) -- After outstanding performances that earned them places in the Ivy League and Brown record books this year, Steve Morgan '08 and Buddy Farnham '10 have been selected to the 2007 New England Football Writers Football Championship Subdivision All-Star Team.

This is Morgan's third time receiving All-New England recognition. The kicker's career total of 52 field goals is the most in Ivy League history, surpassing the previous Ivy record of 45 career field goals. Morgan also finished his career as the leader in career kick scoring points, with 290, well clear of the previous mark of 229. Over the course of his career with the Bears, Morgan has connected on 52-of-70 field goals and 134-of-136 extra points. He was a perfect 30-of-30 on extra points this season. Morgan is a three-time first team All-Ivy selection and was the 2004 Ivy League Rookie of the Year.

Farnham has been with the Bears for only two seasons, but he has already made a name for himself. This year, the wide receiver tallied 78 receptions, the most in the Ivy League and the sixth best in the nation. That number was also the sixth highest in Brown history. Farnham's 885 receiving yards was third best in the Ivy League and 11th best in the Brown record books.

Morgan and Farnham will be honored as part of the All-New England team at the annual New England Football Writers Captains and Awards Banquet. The banquet will take place Dec. 13 in Wilmington, Mass.
