Show Time

Dartmouth Football has posted a video look at the first day of spring practice. (Standard warnings apply about the volume control/mute button for anyone over a certain age ;-)

The local daily has a lengthy story about Dartmouth defensive back Evan Bloom, who will commissioned a second lieutenant in the Marines the day before graduation in June. He's hoping to become a pilot. Find the story here and his football bio here.
Joining the Dartmouth coaching staff to work with the defensive line is longtime Yale assistant Duane Brooks, who played for Buddy Teevens at Maine and worked alongside current Dartmouth assistants Keith Clark and Kyle Metzler in New Haven. He has coached in Maine the past several years.

Find an old Yale bio here.

Brooks replaces Kevin Lewis, who returned to his native Virginia to coach at William & Mary. For more on Brooks and Thursday's practice, visit BGA Premium.

The third practice of the spring is set for Saturday morning at 9:45. As always, there will be full coverage on BGA Premium.
Princeton quarterback Quinn Epperly completed 68 percent of his throws with 25 touchdowns and just three interceptions last year while also leading the team in rushing. Epperly and Connor Michelsen – who split time with Epperly in the past – as well as highly regarded Kedric Bostic will all be back for the Ivy League co-champions next fall. But guess what? There's another quarterback going through spring ball who is referred to as, "Princeton's highest-profile prospect since probably, Keith Elias in 1990." Check out Jay Greenberg's column on Chad Kanoff.

Princeton offensive coordinator John James Perry on the rising sophomore who walked away from a commitment to Vanderbilt:
"(I)f Chad wants to start, he is going to have to beat out the best player in the league in Quinn . . ."
Dartmouth quarterback Alex Park and coach Buddy Teevens
are shopping for a few more wins next fall.
Turns out the carts are stand-ins for linemen during drills and pass skeleton.
