Folarin "Flo" Orimolade was announced today as a finalist for the Asa S. Bushnell Cup as Ivy League defensive player of the year.

From a Dartmouth release (LINK):
HANOVER, N.H. — The Ivy League unveiled its offensive and defensive finalists for the Asa S. Bushnell Cup this afternoon, and Dartmouth linebacker Folarin Orimolade was one of the two chosen on defense. He was joined by Princeton defensive lineman Kurt Holuba, while the offensive finalists consisted of Penn wide receiver Justin Watson for a second straight year and Princeton running back John Lovett.
A preseason All-American, Orimolade did not disappoint in his senior season, leading the Big Green with 83 tackles, 14.5 for a loss with nine sacks, and five forced fumbles. He is among the nation’s leaders on a per game basis in each of those categories, topping the FCS with 0.5 forced fumbles per game and ranking 12th with 0.9 sacks per game, both of which lead the Ivy League. His 1.45 tackles for a loss per game also place him second in the conference and 22nd nationally.
