And Another

Two days, two new commitments.

Declaring his decision to join the Dartmouth program a year from now is Marcus Romboli, a 6-foot-3, 270-pound lineman from Everett, Mass., who will suit up this fall for Deerfield Academy. Romboli Tweeted his commitment HERE.

Find Romboli's junior year highlights at Malden Catholic High School HERE.

Announcing for Dartmouth earlier was 6-3, 183 wide receiver Paxton Scott of St. Mark's School in Dallas.
Athlon has a story under the headline FCS College Football: Most Dominating Defensive Players by Conference in 2019 that has Dartmouth corner Isiah Swann as the choice in the Ivy League with Columbia defensive end Daniel DeLorenzi and Princeton cornerback T.J. Floyd “two more to fear.”

Green Alert Take: Swann is clearly deserving but if either Dartmouth linebacker Jack Traynor and defensive lineman Jackson Perry had been chosen the feeling here is not many coaches in the Ivy League would disagree. That's the kind of star power the Big Green has on the defensive side.

Green Alert Take II: Interestingly, it wasn’t that the article was trying to avoid having two players from one school listed because in the Patriot League Colgate defensive end Nick Wheeler was the “most dominating” player and teammate Abu Daramy-Swaray, a corner, was one of the “two more to fear.” Dartmouth will see them this fall in the Big Green's home opener.

Craig Haley of STATS leads off a story under the headline 10 key dates in the 2019 FCS season by having a little fun at the Ivy League’s expense, channeling then-Colts coach Jim Mora. Haley wrote:
It's cool that an FCS program played in the first college football game in 1869.
Do you think Princeton was trying to talk Rutgers into having playoffs back then?
No wait, it's the Ivy League. Playoffs? PLAYOFFS? Yeah, you know how that goes there.
One of the key dates Haley cites, obviously, is the Nov. 9 matchup between Princeton and Dartmouth at Yankee Stadium.
You knew there would be a scenic photo from the new world headquarters of BGA posted again before too long. Here are two shot just a few minutes apart last night as a storm blew through and the sky started to clear over the New Hampshire mountains:
