•Dartmouth's Matt Kaskey was named a preseason All-America by Phil Steele. From a Dartmouth release (LINK)
A native of Winnetka, Illinois, Kaskey (6-7, 325) was named to the All-America Fourth Team a year after being a first-team All-Ivy performer at left tackle, helping Dartmouth to an 8-2 overall record and a tie for second place at 5-2. He anchored an offensive line that allowed Dartmouth to rank in the top half of the Ivy League in scoring, rushing, passing and total yards, joining the conference champion (Yale) as the only teams that could make that claim. His blocking was integral in the Big Green ranking 15th nationally in fewest sacks allowed (one per game), plus paved the way for two backs to be among the top league's top seven in rushing.
