Another Honor For Swann

Despite playing in only seven games this fall, Dartmouth corner Isiah Swann has been named to the Associated Press All-America second team. The honor comes one day after the senior from Arizona was chosen to the Hero Sports third team.

Swann led the Ivy League with four interceptions (two for touchdowns) and would have finished second in the nation in passes defended if he'd played in one more game. Find a Dartmouth release HERE.

Swann was a consensus All-American a year ago when he played the full season and led the nation in interceptions.

The only other Ivy Leaguer to earn All-America mention from the AP this year was Yale offensive lineman Deiter Eislen, chosen to the third team.
Because it is, as they say in these parts, "wicked easy" to not give offensive linemen their due, it's fun to watch a highlight video of an O-lineman. Check out All-Ivy League guard Zach Sammartino, who did not allow a sack in his college career:

In case you are wondering, today is the early National Signing Day, including at the FCS level. It extends through Friday. The regular signing day is Feb. 5.
