Worcester State quarterback Noah Brum, a 2014 Kalani graduate, was named the Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference co-offensive player of the week on Sunday.

Brum, who owns the two best single-game passing performances ever at Kalani, threw for 364 yards and set the Lancers’ single-game completion percentage record of 77.8 percent (28-for-36) with five touchdowns in a 48-0 shutout of Massachusetts Maritime on Saturday in his final home game of the season.

Brum threw all five scoring passes in the first three quarters and averaged 10.1 yards per attempt.

The 6-foot, 160-pound junior leads the conference in completions (214), attempts (330), passing yards (2,438), yards per game (304.8) and touchdowns (25). He’s second in the league completing 64.8 percent of his passes.

Brum threw for 2,804 yards and 38 touchdowns as a senior at Kalani and led the Falcons to a 6-4 record and their first playoff berth in school history.

Worcester State, a Division III school, is 5-3 this season and 4-2 in conference. The Lancers play their final two games of the season on the road beginning Saturday at Bridgewater State.

    Great to see another local boy doing good. To all you other local boys , you can continue to play football after high school. Doesn’t always have to be D1. More important! You get a good education from those D3 schools. Keep hitting the books and chasing your dreams. Good job Brum for setting a good example for the future kids.
