MADISON, N.J. - Led by 158 yards rushing and a school record four touchdowns from freshman Trey Lee (Lusby, Md./Patuxent), the Stevenson football team amassed 462 yards of total offense, including 300 yards rushing while scoring a school record 55 points in remaining unbeaten with a 55-22 victory at FDU-Florham Friday night at Robert T. Shields Field.

Stevenson (3-0, 2-0 MAC), who is off to the best start to a season in the school's brief history, has now won four-straight overall dating back to last year's season finale, a 28-13 victory over the Devils.

Lee broke the mark of three rushing touchdowns set by K.K. Smith against Misericordia and FDU-Florham last season. He also joins Smith as the only two players in school history to rush for over 100 yards twice in the same season.

Lee got his record-setting night started with a 48-yard touchdown run in the second quarter to put the Mustangs up 21-13. He added touchdown runs of 1, 2 and 4 yards, the last of which came with 11:08 remaining in the fourth quarter to give Stevenson a commanding 49-22 advantage.

Meanwhile, sophomore John Gasparovic (Middletown, Del./Appoquinimink), who completed 11-of-17 passes for 155 yards and two touchdowns, started the game 5-for-5 with both touchdown passes coming to sophomore Chris Cooper (Forest Hill, Md./Fallston) in the first quarter.

Not to be overlooked was the play of the Mustang defense who forced three turnovers, totaled three sacks and held FDU-Florham to just 115 yards in the second half. In the third quarter, sophomore Billy Lewis (Centreville, Md./Queen Anne's) returned a fumble 45 yards for a touchdown, marking the second-straight week that Stevenson has registered a defensive touchdown.

Junior Tim Campbell (Millersville, Md./McDonogh) finished with a team-high nine tackles, one forced fumble and one pass break-up. Junior Donnell Brown (Baltimore, Md./Poly) added six tackles while sophomore Razonte Dunn (Bryans Road, Md./Lackey) had five tackles. Both finished with half-a-sack.

Craig Kimbrough led the Devils (1-1, 0-1 MAC) with 137 yards rushing. Michael Santos threw for 215 yards and one score.

Stevenson travels to Delaware Valley next Saturday. Game time is at 1:00 p.m.
