Worth Watching

Gage Guerra, who plans to walk on as a 5-foot-11, 265-pound offensive lineman at Dartmouth, checks out his admission status in this video and gets the good news. The joy he and his family feel is pure and infectious. Do check this out by clicking on the arrow:

Guerra is no stranger to the camera after being interviewed by ESPN funny man Kenny Mayne.

This time if you want to watch the video you have to CLICK HERE (not on the arrow above ;-)
Sign of the Apocalypse:
From a Burnt Orange Nation posting that talks about the impending recruitment of 6-6, 265-pound Chance Lytle of San Antonio, Texas:
College coaches are starting to take notice. As of this writing, Lytle's Twitter followers (a useful if imperfect barometer on the extent of an athlete's interest from D1 schools) include coaches/grad assistants/player personnel types from Texas, Michigan State, Colorado, Rice, UTSA, Penn, Dartmouth, and Abilene Christian, among others. If he displays the same agility and athleticism in 2015 that he showed as a junior, while improving his technique and carrying 30+ pounds more than a season ago, I'll be very surprised if he doesn't have at least a handful of Big 12 offers by the end of his senior season.
Green Alert Take: So this is what it has come to. Mentions of what college coaches are "following" the Twitter feed of high school players. Yikes.
I'll be back at the Tommy Keane Invitational all day today. For an historic photo of former Dartmouth golf coach and Hanover pro Tommy Keane with President Dwight Eisenhower, check out the site I do for the tournament HERE.
