From a Dartmouth Sports Publicity release:
The Ivy League office announced its weekly football award winners today, and two Dartmouth players received three of the four honors. Freshman Isiah Swann was chosen as both the Defensive Player of the Week as well as the Rookie of the Week, while senior Charlie Miller earned the Special Teams Player of the Week for their contributions to the Big Green’s 20-17 victory over visiting Towson on Saturday.

Yahoo writes about Ryan McManus being the "designated receiver" for Tom Brady HERE.
The Dartmouth has a story with Phil Olson '79, comedy writer, playwright and former Big Green football player. The 6-foot-2, 210-pound tight end from Edina, Minn., caught 20 passes for 249 yards as a senior. From The D:
Olson has written 13 original screenplays and 15 published plays with over 350 productions worldwide, nine of which have been published by Samuel French. His next play, “A Nice Family Christmas,” will open in seven cities this year.
