And Another

To the list of Dartmouth commits for next fall add the name Cameron Maddox of Cheshire Academy (Conn.) and Sun Valley High School in Monroe, N.C. The 6-foot-2, 195-pound strong safety/wide receiver chose Dartmouth over offers from William & Mary, Lafayette, Lehigh, Columbia, Davidson and Georgetown. He had originally headed to Harvard.

Dartmouth corner Isiah Swann has been named to his third All-America team, this time as a member of the STATS second team. (LINK)

Green Alert Take: It says here that Swann, a unanimous first-team All-America pick a year ago, would have been first team again this fall if he hadn't missed 30 percent of his senior season entirely and hadn't been limited in several other games after returning from a leg injury.

And finally, I went off to the ECAC site the other day to see if there was any information on the Lambert Cup, "emblematic of supremacy in the east."

I didn't find that but I did find this:

Green Alert Take: Look, I understand there are schools starting "esports" teams, and that's fine and dandy. There are chess teams and debate teams as well. But when the ECAC – the venerable Eastern College Athletic Conference – starts recognizing esports as something athletic, it is indeed a sign of the apocalypse.
