Trivia question:

Two Dartmouth football players have earned recognition on the the All-Ivy League first team at two positions in the same year. Name them.

To give you a little time to think about it (and so you don't cheat ;-), the answer is at the bottom of this post.

USA Today High School Sports has a story about Dartmouth-bound linebacker Nathan Nunez of Amherst, Ohio. (LINK)

From the story on the two-time first-team All-Lorain County selection:
Serving as a role model for the community’s young residents is a responsibility the three-year letterwinner cherished and took seriously, citing it as the best part of being a varsity student-athlete.
“As a kid, I always looked up to the football players, dreaming to be in their shoes one day,” Nunez said. “Now that I have lived that dream, I can look at the youth football players and give them something to work for.”
The Jackson Hole News & Guide has a story about the recruitment of Jackson tailback/linebacker Theo Dawson, who holds the only in-state scholarship offer from the University of Wyoming.  (LINK) From the story:

During the 2013 season, he averaged 154 yards per game on the ground before a knee injury ended his season in week four.
He returned last year as a junior to rush for roughly 160 yards per game while averaging 6.2 tackles a game at middle linebacker.
Offers from Wyoming, Air Force, Montana State and Dartmouth. He hopes schools such as Stanford and Northwestern, as well as his father’s alma mater, Brigham Young University, will join the list of full-ride offers...
Trivia answer:

Shawn Abuhoff '12 and Ryan McManus '15, who returns this fall as a fifth-year senior.

Abuhoff pulled off a double-double, being named to the All-Ivy first team as a defensive back and return specialist twice.

McManus was named to the first team last year both at wide receiver and return specialist. He posted 68 catches for 879 yards and eight touchdowns as a receiver, and was 13th in the country with a 10.9-yard punt return average including a critical 60-yard return for a TD that helped Dartmouth post a 38-31 win at Yale.
