From the Dartmouth press guide:
Established in 2007 and presented to an underclassman on the football team whose character, leadership on campus, high academic standing and performance on the playing field most resembles that of Charles (Stubby (sic)) Pearson '42, captain of the 1941 football team who died while serving in the U.S. Navy in World War II. He was also captain of basketball and graduated Phi Beta Kappa and valedictorian of his class. Gift of David Little '44 and Peter Little '81.An honorable-mention All-Ivy choice last fall, Green was Dartmouth's second-leading tackler (and seventh in the Ivies) with 82 stops. He had two interceptions, two fumble recoveries, three passes defended and one forced fumble. He capped his season with a season-high 13 tackles in the win over Princeton. At the conclusion of spring practice Green was voted a rare junior captain for the 2012 Dartmouth team.
Green joins a distinguished list of winners of the five-year-old award. Previous winners:
2008 - Linebacker Andrew Dete
2009 - Receiver Timmy McManus
2010 - Receiver Tanner Scott
2011 - Tight end John Gallagher
