Brisly Estime earns Orange Scholar-Athlete Honors

With fall sports already underway and classes starting this week, Brisly Estime, Falk College Child and Family Studies major and SU football wide receiver has been selected as the first male Orange Scholar-Athletes of the Week for the 2015-16 academic year.

Estime and the Syracuse football team kick off the 2015 season against Rhode Island this Friday, Sept. 4 at the Carrier Dome. The matchup is set for 7 p.m. and will be aired on ESPN3 and Syracuse IMG Radio Network.

The junior out of Delray Beach, Fla. was given the nod as the football team’s starting wide receiver for this week’s game against Rhode Island. During his freshman season, he recorded 28 receptions for 257 yards, placing him third on the Syracuse record list for most receptions by a freshman. He missed the majority of the 2014 season due to injury.
