A Dartmouth Double

To the surprise of few who were at the game Saturday, Dartmouth quarterback Dalyn Williams was chosen the Ivy League rookie of the week and Mike Runger the conference defensive player of the week for their performances against Princeton Saturday.

From the Dartmouth release:

Williams had a direct hand in four of the five Big Green scores, and indirectly in the fifth. The rookie threw three touchdown passes and ran for another, plus tossed the lateral to sophomore Ryan McManus near the sideline that turned into a 54-yard scoring strike by the wide receiver to sophomore Bo Patterson. For the game, Williams completed 20-of-35 throws for a season-high 284 yards and ran for 43 yards, a misleading total as he gained 82 yards on the ground but lost 39, mostly due to five sacks.
And . . .
(Runger) led the Dartmouth defense by recording a career-high 17 tackles, which were the most by an Ivy League player all season. Of his 17 stops, 13 came in the first half, one of which halted the Princeton quarterback cold at the two to help the Big Green remain within seven points at 14-7.
