And The Winner Is . . .

Dartmouth has had a good number of former players win elections but onetime wide receiver Brian Evans '08, may be the first from the second Buddy Teevens era to do so.

Evans, named to the All-Ivy League second team as a senior, will be the new county attorney in Freestone County, Texas as a result of balloting last month. According to the local paper, he "earned the required 51 percent to win the Republican primary. Evans will not face opposition in the General Election."

One of the fastest players in the Ivy League and a sprinter on the Dartmouth track team, the Texas native caught 34 passes for 631 yards and seven touchdowns as a senior. He averaged 18.6 yards per reception. After lettering as a defensive back as a freshman he switched to receiver and caught 69 passes for 1,189 yards and a 17.2-yard average over the next three seasons.

Derham Cato '05, a defensive tackle who went on to play in Canadian Football League as well as in arena leagues before serving as a Big Green assistant coach, has joined the Washington Huskies staff as a "quality control analyst." Cato was most recently offensive line coach and then offensive coordinator at Davidson.
It would seem we dodged most of the snowstorm coming up the East Coast. As I glimpse out the window it looks like nothing more than confectionary sugar sprinkled on the lawn and stone walls.

That said, it's gotten colder again. It was 12 degrees here yesterday morning. While that was a rude introduction to spring, at least it froze up the gooey ruts on our dirt road as mud season begins to take hold.
