The Ivy League football media guide has been posted in six parts on the Ivy site HERE.
Haldane High School in New York's Hudson River Valley is benefiting this preseason from the use of the Dartmouth-developed Mobile Virtual Player. A local website that is part of the USA Today Network has posted a story that includes quotes from former Big Green receiver Ryan McManus, now the MVP's director of marketing. (LINK)

From the story:
The heat and humidity were conspiring to spoil the mood, but Haldane’s best practice player got off the sweltering turf without complaint and set up for the next in a relentless line of tacklers without hesitation.
He’s a machine.
Literally, a remote-controlled Rudy gifted anonymously to the program by a member of the community who understands the importance of reducing contact in practice. The wrong twist or turn Monday through Friday can quickly ruin the season of a Class D school that will open with 21 players on the roster.
