GREEN BAY, Wisc. - Newberry College alumnus Brandon Bostick became the first player to have worn the scarlet and gray to score in the National Football League in the Green Bay Packers' 27-13 loss to Philadelphia on Sunday.

Bostick had not made a regular season reception prior to Sunday's contest, and his first career catch came in the first quarter for no gain after quarterback Seneca Wallace scrambled and tossed the ball to Bostick at the line of scrimmage.

In the second quarter, Bostick made a touchdown saving tackle after Packers quarterback Scott Tolzien's pass was intercepted in the endzone by Brandon Boykin. Bostick pushed Boykin out of bounds at the Green Bay 27-yardline and the Eagles would miss a field goal attempt later in the drive.

Bostick made his first career positive yardage reception late in the second quarter, gaining 20 yards.

With the Packers trailing 20-3 in the third quarter, Bostick then caught a 22-yard touchdown pass from Tolzien. The former Newberry football and basketball star then went to the fans and performed the famous "Lambeau Leap" touchdown celebration.
