Friday Notes

From the Dartmouth football  office. Usual warning apply regarding the volume control on your speakers ;-)

Congratulations to former Dartmouth and NFL defensive back Lloyd Lee '98 on being named outside linebackers coach at Holy Cross. (LINK)

Lee, a two-time All-Ivy League pick for the Big Green, coached with the Chicago Bears from 2004-08 and most recently was vice president of football operations for USA Football.

Holy Cross and Lee will visit Memorial Field on Sept. 23.

(Thanks for the link!)

Here's Lee's media guide bio from his senior year at Dartmouth:

Incoming Dartmouth receiver Masaki Aerts and Hanover-bound running back Dakari Falconer helped the St. Peter's Prep 4x200 team to fourth place in the finals at the New Balance Nationals, earning All-America honors. Along the way Aerts (running the first leg) and Falconer (running anchor) and their two juniors who also played football for St. Peter's broke the school indoor and outdoor records with a time of 1:29.13. Check out their record-setting prelim HERE.

Aerts qualified for the nationals in the 200 the week before, running the second-best time in New Jersey (21:93) in his first individual 200.
From a story in
In the Ivy League they don’t award athletic scholarships. Do they search out great players, compete against the best Division I schools, and win championships in various sports? Absolutely. Well, if they don’t award scholarships, how do they compete and get good players to join their teams?
Want to guess which school they use as a case study in how the Ivy League competes for top student-athletes? Yup. Dartmouth.
