    WR Brevi may miss Wolfstock

    Saturday’s loss to Brown University hurt the Seawolves in more ways than one. Not only did the team lose its third straight game to start the season, and first at home, it also may have lost senior wide receiver Matt Brevi for an extended period of time with a separated shoulder.

    Brevi was injured while diving for a catch in the end zone in the third quarter of Saturday’s game. Head coach Chuck Priore would not expand upon the injury only saying that he suffered from a shoulder separation.

    Brevi is in his final season with the Seawolves after transferring from Fort Hayes State University in Kansas. The 6’2″ WR had a breakout season last year, leading the Seawolves in receiving yards with 668 and touchdowns with five.

    Those numbers earned him an All-Big South selection, along with the #1 wide receiving job in Coach Priore’s offense.

    The loss of Brevi hurts an already struggling Seawolves passing attack. As a team, the Seawolves have rushed for 656 yards on the ground compared to only 376 yards through the air, and now with Brevi presumably out of action for an undisclosed amount of time, the quarterback combo of Michael Coulter and Kyle Essington will have to look to 6’5″ sophomore Chris McMillan to pick up the receiving load.
