Big 30

Royce Novosel-Johnson '05, who earned three letters at Dartmouth, will serve as an assistant coach for the Pennsylvania team for its Big 30 Charities Classic football game against New York next August. Novosel-Johnson is an assistant coach at Kane Area High School, where he played before coming to Dartmouth. His head coach will lead the Pennsylvania Big 30 squad.

Novosel-Johnson was chosen to play in the 2001 Big 30 game, which pits players from 15 schools in northern Pennsylvania against players from 15 schools in New York's Lower Tier (hence the Big 30).

A Bradford Era story about Pennsylvania coaches in the Big 30 game (not to be confused with the better-known Big 33 game) notes that Novosel-Johnson is the owner of NoJo Forest Creations and CEO and co-founder of the new Logyard Brewing LLC.

Wandering through Floren Varsity House a couple of days ago I snapped a pic of this nicely done sign that sits atop the doorway to the Dartmouth football locker room.
