Hartwell's performance found him racking up 229 all-purpose yards, including a school-record 77-yard punt return for a touchdown.

Last season, Hartwell broke his first school record at Williams when he recorded 10 TD catches.

Hartwell currently leads the NESCAC in all-purpose yards in 2011 with 985. He is third in reception yards per game (94.2) and fourth in receptions per game (6.40).

On the season, Hartwell has accumulated 471 yards on 32 total receptions with four touchdown runs. He averages 14.7 yards per catch.

With 14 punt returns, Hartwell is posting 15.1 yards per return, 221 total yards and one touchdown. Eleven kickoff returns have brought Hartwell 274 yards, averaging 24.9 yards per kick return. He is also tallying 197 all-purpose yards per game.
