State Of The Program

With yesterday's news that the Dartmouth has added a California quarterback to the list of incoming recruits there are now 29 high school seniors who have tweeted their commitment to the Class of 2022. The sending high schools identified to date represent 17 states and the District of Columbia. (Those numbers get tricky when a recruit graduated from high school in one state and is taking a graduate year in another state. In that case the state being listed is that where he most recently played football.)

The Dartmouth community lost a giant with the recent passing of Ed Leede – namesake of the Berry Center's Leede Arena – at age 90.

Ed Leede was Dartmouth's first 1,000-point scorer on the hardwood and an early Boston Celtic who went on to earn an MBA from Harvard, serve proudly in the United States Marines, enjoy a successful career in business and serve Dartmouth College in a variety of ways. The Dartmouth sports website takes a look at the life of Ed Leede HERE.
