Charlotte, N.C. - Just one start into his Stony Brook career, junior Kyle Essington (Chino Hills, Calif.) took him two weekly awards. Essington, who threw for four touchdowns and ran for another, was named Big South Offensive and College Football Performance Awards' FCS Co-National Player of the Week on Monday.

Senior Brock Jackolski (Shirley, N.Y.) garnered Big South Special Teams Player of the Week, and senior Matt Brevi (Tampa, Fla.) claimed CFPA honorable mention honors.

Essington accounted for five of Stony Brook's six touchdowns in a 42-24 win over Presbyterian. He completed nine of his first 10 passes, throwing touchdowns of 44, 40, 22 and 42 yards. Essington gave the Seawolves a 7-0 lead on an 18-yard scamper in the first quarter.

Jackolski recorded the fourth-most all-purpose yards in Big South history, accounting for 319 yards (136 rushing, 9 receiving, 44 punt and 136 kickoff). His 37-yard kick return and 44-yard punt return set up touchdowns. Jackolski added a 60-yard kick return to begin the second half for Stony Brook.

Brevi had 126 receiving yards and two touchdowns, including a 40-yarder from Essington that ended the first half. Brevi's catch, which was made against five Presbyterian defenders, was a top-ten play on ESPN.
