Paulsen goes from Seawolves of Stony Brook to Huskies of Duluth

Dylan Ashcraft

Duluth, Minn.- The next addition to the forward-thinking Huskies is traveling over 1,300 miles northwest to call Wade Stadium home for 2021. Infielder Brett Paulsen joins the roster after starting 13 games of a truncated season at second base for Stony Brook University in 2019. Originally from South Salem, New York, Paulsen committed to the Stony Brook Seawolves as a top 500 national prospect, and number six overall short-stop in the state of New York, per Perfect Game.

Paulsen, who started every varsity game he played in at John Jay-Cross River, finished his senior season by coupling 26 RBIs with three homeruns on a batting average of .575 according to Stony Brook Athletics. He added another homer off 11 total hits in his brief 13-game 2020 season at Stony Brook. The Covid-shortened season has not stood in Brett’s way, however; with a home gym and batting cage, he has been able to stay in playing shape.

When asked what intrigues him about Duluth, Brett shared how Stony Brook teammate Jared Milch ‘went to bat’ for the Huskies. Milch spent 2019 with the Huskies and showered praises on the quality coaching and atmosphere at Wade Stadium. Paulson is looking forward to ‘playing with a good group of guys in a league with a great reputation,’ and developing into a stronger player. Living and breathing baseball, Brett buys and sells baseball cards in his spare time, refining what he calls an extensive collection.
