Gridiron To Hardwood For Cook

A new addition to the Dartmouth basketball team for the rest of the season is 6-foot-6 Joseph Cook, who just completed his medical redshirt season as a fifth-year tight end for the 8-2 Big Green football team.

Cook, who saw action in four games during the fall, averaged 12.9 points, 12.3 rebounds and 2.2 blocks as a senior captain for the Bishop Amat basketball team in California and drew recruiting interest on the hardwood as well as the gridiron. He was an all-league choice in basketball and served as team captain.

Dartmouth (2-2) plays at Canisius at 4 this afternoon as it begins a four-game road trip capped by a Dec. 19 game at Notre Dame. The Big Green returns home Dec. 22 for a noon game against Bryant.
NFL Films has a 6-minute, 46-second look at the Mobile Virtual Player. It's an interesting piece that starts with a serious review but then slides into a humorous look at the robotic dummy. Senior kicker David Smith has some funny things to say about the MVP in the second half of the video and quarterback Jack Heneghan makes a cameo. John Currier, coach Buddy Teevens' classmate who heads up the MVP effort, talks about putting 11 dummies on the field against Harvard, suggesting that you might as well "fight fire with fire."
