Green Lands St. Louis QB

St. Louis High School Sports reports that quarterback Thomas Militello has made a verbal commitment to Dartmouth.

The ESPN recruiting page says the 6-foot-3, 185-pound QB from Mary Institute Country Day School in St. Louis chose Dartmouth over offers from Cornell and Southern Illinois.

His page lists Militello at 6-4 and says he runs a 4.54. (The ESPN site lists him at 4.79). He also has a Yahoo recruiting page. His sophomore year highlight film is here.

From the St. Louis High School page:
Militello has been one of the area's top quarterbacks this fall, leading the Rams to a 10-0 record, a berth in the Class 4 playoffs and the No. 1 spot in the small-schools rankings.

He has completed 68 percent of his passes for 2,190 yards, with 30 touchdowns and five interceptions. He has scored two rushing touchdowns.
Mary Institute Country Day sent both offensive lineman/captain Alex Rapp '09 and running back Joe Zimring '11 to Dartmouth in recent years.

Cassie Hodgson, a familiar face at Dartmouth football practices as a student trainer during her breaks as a star athlete at Hanover High School, is working an internship this year as a trainer at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md.

A former softball captain at the University of Maine, Cassie is the daughter of former Dartmouth assistant football coach Mike Hodgson. Mike is now an assistant athletic director for development at UMaine and the co-author of Tackling Football, A Woman's Guide to Understanding the College Game.

Is it possible today's football helmets are no more effective at preventing injury than the leather helmets of yesteryear? One study suggests that is the case. Click here to read more. (Thanks for the link.)
