Wrapping Up Spring

While Dartmouth will wear new black uniforms in select games next fall, the team's regular unis will be the green and white seen at Saturday's spring game. And no, quarterback Dalyn Williams will not be in red come September. Pictured along with Williams are fellow captains Will McNamara (44) and Ryan McManus as well as coach Buddy Teevens.
The crowd Saturday had to gather just in the visiting stands because of construction on the other side, but there were a lot of people who turned out.

While Coach Teevens talked with the squad the captains snuck away to put on the new black uniforms. They returned to the field with the unis hidden under capes. Two have already shed them in this unveiling photo. (Click picture to enlarge.)
