Football 101

Former All-Ivy League lineman and now WCAX-TV sports anchor Mike McCune interviews his old Dartmouth coach Buddy Teevens at the Big Green's Football 101 celebration last night. Watch the full video report HERE.

After the "tailgate" emcee Mike McCune introduces the coaches and staff.
With the weather clearing young and old headed for the field through a gauntlet of players and coaches offering high (and low) fives.
Then it was time for a few drills.
Coach Buddy Teevens had a little help in his end-of-practice talk.
Capping the night linebackers Will McNamara and Will Konstant along with  wide receiver Victor Williams were "grilled" by young questioners in a press conference.
Football 101 offered everyone a chance to see the new home stands, which to the naked eye appear to be nearing completion.
The plywood board at the 50 seals off the tunnel between the field and the stands.
With the retaining fence down you can see the wall at the front of the stands has been doubled in height.
Brackets are in for the chairback seating area in front of the press box.
Find full audio of the Ivy League media day teleconference HERE. (I still wish they'd break it down into eight different files with one for each coach.)
Stories on the Ivy media day can be found on the STATS page (LINK),  New Haven Register (LINK), Boston Globe (LINK), Philadelphia Inquirer (LINK), Trentonian (LINK) and probably a few other sites ;-)
