Snow Fun

From the Dartmouth football office comes a video look at the program's "Skate With a Date," an annual event that started in 2007 and features ice skating (weather permitting ;-), sledding, snowshoeing, hot chocolate and camaraderie shared between football players and staff and their dates:

Say this for Dartmouth football coaches in their recruiting efforts: They don't mind mixing it up with the big guys. They may lose a lot more than they win in those efforts, but they give it a shot.

Case in point, a story out of Pittsburgh Sports Now about Pitt extending an offer to Washington, D.C., and Gonzaga High School's Aidan Rafferty, a 6-foot-6, 280-pound offensive lineman. From the story:
Pitt is one of many schools to offer Rafferty in February. Dartmouth, Maryland, North Carolina State, Syracuse, Virginia, and Virginia Tech extended scholarship offers to the offensive tackle as well. 
If you are playing a game of, Which of These is Not Like the Others, it's a pretty easy answer ;-)
Former Dartmouth linebacker Flo Orimolade is one of a dozen NFL hopefuls training at the St. Vincent Sports Performance’s EXOS training program in Indiana. Others come from Michigan, Purdue, Ball State, Buffalo, Youngstown, Lindenwood, Marian, Illinois State and Maine. Five of the 12 are headed to the Combine.

The list of players training at St. Vincent is in the notes at the end of a Fox59 story spun out of one of the players becoming a new father. (LINK)
