Stony Brook signs three JUCO transfers

Updated: January 2, 2013

Stony Brook head coach Chuck Priore announced the signing of three mid-year transfers – quarterback Conor Bednarski, safety Zedrick Gardner and running back James Kenner – on Wednesday.

All three players will enroll at Stony Brook in the spring semester and have
two years of eligibility remaining.

The 6-foot-3, 205-pound Bednarski, from South Pasadena, Calif., earned second-
team All-Southern Conference honors for Fullerton College after passing for a
league-best 2,453 yards and 25 touchdowns this past season.

Gardner, from Miami, led ASA College with four interceptions en route to
second-team All-Northeast Football Conference honors. The 6-3, 210-pounder
also tallied 33 tackles, including 2.5 for loss, two fumble recoveries and a
forced fumble.

Kenner, from Willingboro, N.J., was a teammate with Gardner at ASA. The 6-foot,
205-pounder rushed for 676 yards and eight touchdowns as a sophomore.

Stony Brook had a 10-3 record this past season, earning a share of the Big
South Conference title and reaching the FCS playoff second round. The Seawolves
will join CAA Football next season.
