He was been previously picked as the top return man in New England as he was named to the New England Football Writers Division II/III All-Star Team as a return specialist. He was also recently named an ECAC Division III Northwest All-Star as a return specialist, and d3football.com All-East as a return man. In addition, he was named an Empire 8 First Team selection as both a defensive back and as a return specialist.
Burrell ranked third in NCAA Division III statistics in kick returns at 31.47 yards per return, and fifth in Division III in punt returns at 16.18 yards per return. He returned both a punt (at King's) and a kickoff (at Utica) for a touchdown during the past season.
Burrell helped lead Springfield to an 8-2 record, including a 42-13 win over Plymouth State in the ECAC Northeast Division III Championship Bowl played at SC's Amos Alonzo Stagg Field.
