Hall of Fame

Andrew Hall '05, was best known when he was at Dartmouth for The Catch, a one-handed grab against Harvard that had the TV announcers raving. (Check out the video here.)

A recruited decathlete from Maine who walked onto the Dartmouth football team, Hall continued in track after graduation. The ShiftFit site bills him as, "USA Javelin, Decathlete, Fitness Model, ShiftFit Pro Athlete."

I always thought Hall looked a little like former NBA player Rick Fox, who went into acting, and Hall has followed him onto the screen, albeit one that's a little smaller than the silver screen. Here's another commercial that features the former Dartmouth football and track athlete:

That Certain '14 absolutely loves Dartmouth, something that comes through when she gives tours to prospective students and their families. Last spring she ran for student body president (finishing a healthy runnerup) and yesterday she learned she's been elected to a five-year term on the Dartmouth Senior Executive Committee, whose mission is "to continue and strengthen the connection between all members of the senior class to each other and to the College."
