Go With The Flo

Chosen for the Ivy League? Dartmouth senior Folarin "Flo" Orimolade, a 5-foot-11, 240-pound whirling dervish of a pass rusher who made the All-Ivy League first team last fall.

From the text (LINK):
With terrific quickness, Orimolade gets into opposing backfields. He finished second in the Ivy League in both sacks (eight) and tackles for a loss (12) and led the league in forced fumbles (four) last season, when Dartmouth earned a share of its first Ivy title since 1996.
The 1970 Dartmouth baseball team advanced to the College World Series and a loyal reader has shared a tip that a member of the 1970 football team is in Omaha for the CWS right now.

Former linebacker Joe Jarrett '71 is the orthopedic surgeon for the Coastal Carolina baseball team that is down 1-0 in a best-of-three with Arizona for the national championship.

A West Virginia native, Jarrett earned All-New England recognition as a senior, pulling in two interceptions for an undefeated Big Green that used a stifling defense to finish 14th in the nation and win the Lambert Trophy over Penn State, symbolic of supremacy in the East.

Thoughtless postings on social media have cost recruits scholarships at powerhouse schools and doubtless have caused Ivy League schools to back off the odd potential recruit. But could thoughtful posting have the opposite effect?

Nothing terribly surprising here but FootballScoop takes a look at what a high schooler might want to post to differentiate himself from other players with similar playing backgrounds. (LINK)
