Success Stories

Dartmouth Alumni Magazine writes about football recruit-turned-storyboard artist Ray Prado '89 (The Hunger Games, X-Men and more). Find the story about Prado, who lives locally, HERE.

By the way, Prado stopped by a Dartmouth practice last fall (BGA Daily note) and even got put to work by Coach Buddy Teevens ;-)
Incoming linebacker recruit Naaem Morgan of Middlesex High School in New Jersey has been chosen for the Central Jersey Snapple Bowl, an all-star game that is set to be played July 20 at Kean University. Expect a good number of Dartmouth recruits to be selected for various all-star games around the country. (And if you see something about it in your local paper or online, do let me know.)

Olympian and Dartmouth grad Abbey D'Agostino '14, the most decorated track and field athlete in Ivy League history, returned to campus this week and did a Q&A with The Dartmouth HERE. Fabulous to learn that after suffering an ACL injury last summer in Rio that she's already running.

(I often have to double-check graduation years for Dartmouth athletes but that will never be the case with Abbey because she and That Certain Dartmouth '14 were classmates and teammates as well as roommates – along with the rest of the sophomore distance corps – in a Hanover hovel during their Sophomore Summer.)
