Sibling Tuesday

A couple of pretty acomplished Dartmouth football siblings are making headlines.

Ballerina Joy Womack, the younger sister of junior corner Chase Womack, continues to earn plaudits for her dancing. From the Westlake Picayune:
Womack recently won the pinnacle Grand Prix prize at the European Youth America Grand Prix ballet competition held in Paris on Nov. 11.
Womack was the first American ballerina to perform a principal role with the Bolshoi Ballet Academy on the Bolshoi Stage. link

Chase Womack, who tied for the Dartmouth team lead with four interceptions as a sophomore (including one in each of the last three games) battled a foot injury throughout his junior year. He was able to appear in just two games this fall, coming off the bench against Yale and then starting against Holy Cross. He was credited with two pass breakups, two passes defended and seven tackles in his two appearances.

Jake Cohen, younger brother of former Dartmouth quarterback Josh Cohen '09, had 12 points, two rebounds a block and two steals while helping Davidson shock No. 12 Kansas last night, 80-74. A 6-foot-10 junior, Cohen averages 12.4 points and 5.8 rebounds for the Wildcats and needs just 62 points to reach 1,000 as a junior.

Josh Cohen is working for NFL Films these days, primarily doing preparation and analysis of college tape and as an assistant to the NFL Network's Mike Mayock. As a freshman QB he won the Jake Crouthamel Award for the underclassman who has contributed most to the success of the team.
