PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Brown senior right tackle Paul Jasinowski has been named second-team ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America as selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
A mainstay of the Brown offensive line for the last three seasons, Jasinowski is a three-time All-Ivy selection, earning first team All-Ivy honors in 2008 and 2009. In 2009, he helped Brown to a third place finish in the Ivy standings with the Ivy League's number one offense (396.6 yards of total offense) and passing offense (290.9 yards per game), while the Bears were second in scoring with 24.1 points per game.
Jasinowski was named to prestigious National Football Foundation 2009 National Scholar-Athlete class, and is one of 16 finalists who will vie for the William V. Campbell Trophy. As a finalist, Jasinoswki earns an $18,000 postgraduate scholarship and will be honored at the NFF Annual Awards Dinner on December 8, 2009 at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City, where the Campbell Trophy winner will be announced. Jasinowski is the sixth Brown player to win a NFF Scholar-Athlete Award.
In the classroom, Jasinowski has posted 3.70 GPA, with a double major in Economics and Urban Studies. He plans to pursue an MBA.
For three years, Jasinowski has been a coordinator and leader of a weekly volunteer group for special needs students at Fox Point Elementary School. In 2008, he was awarded the Chris Perry Community Service Award, given to a Brown football player who is the most involved in the community and exhibits the qualities of "scholarship, leadership and concern for others". He also co-coordinated a fundraiser event to benefit the fight against cancer called Bench Press for Cancer.
