Catching Up With . . .

The Winston-Salem Journal writes about quarterback Bruce Dixon IV, who started Dartmouth's game against Harvard last fall but transferred to WSSU and is going through spring practice at the Division II school. Back home in North Carolina, he told the paper he was "tired of being that far up north."

“It’s been a great transition, and I found a major I enjoy here. I was majoring in government at Dartmouth, but here I’m majoring in political science, and I think law school would be something I would go into if football doesn’t work out at the next level.”
Find the full story and a video that includes a quick interview with Dixon HERE.
Former Dartmouth football players Gordy Quist '02 and Trevor Nealon '02 continue to get it done with Austin-based The Band of Heathens.

A friend of BGA recently shared this clip from the Kansas City Star showing Quist, center, and Nealon, right, relaxing before a gig at Knuckleheads in KC:

Here's how the Star billed their appearance:
Long before Austin became a tech industry hub and the host of the sprawling SXSW music conference, the likes of Willie Nelson and Jerry Jeff Walker made the city the capital of outlaw country. The Band of Heathens maintains that ornery Austin tradition with twang-laden rock songs about burning the candle at both ends.
Another Friend of BGA shared this photo from a Houston-area show, noting that the former Big Green players are: "a shining example of what a Dartmouth Football player can become." That's Gordy on the right with Trevor out of the picture on keyboards:


Thanks for sharing! 

Here's a pretty slick Band of Heathens music video posted last month. Gordy is the first face you'll see and Trev shows up at the 1-minute mark:
