The 19th annual Friends of Dartmouth Football Golf "Classic" is on tap today at Hanover Country Club. With so many former players on campus, this is the perfect opportunity to reach into the way back machine for a story from the Sports Illustrated Vault.

On Sept. 29, 1980 SI wrote about Jeff Kemp and Dave Shula, fellow members of the Class of 1981 and sons of famous fathers who would follow their dads into the NFL.

From the story:
Kemp and Shula . . .  differ in their opinions of what it's like to be the son of a famous father. "I hope people respect me for being Dave, not Don's son," Shula has said. He remembers, not so fondly, a moment after one game when the Dartmouth athletic director came up to him, stuck out his hand and said, "Great game. Congratulations, Don!" Kemp, however, never ceases to be impressed by his father. "The man's incredible," he says. "I'm proud when people call me his son."

Summer in Hanover isn't too shabby. The following video from the football office was shot at the edge of campus.

Do stick with the video until the end to see 6-foot-7, 310-pound offensive lineman Matt Kaskey get goaded into going off a towering rope swing and splashing into the Connecticut River:
