Nice Catch

Princeton, Tulane, Southern Miss, UNLV, UAB, Air Force and Navy were in the running for wide receiver Jarmone Sutherland Jr., (LINK) but per his Twitter account Dartmouth won out for the 5-foot-11, 175-pound product of Isidore Newman High School. Isidore Newman, of course, is the alma mater of the Manning brothers as well as Odell Beckham Jr.

Find Sutherland's highlight video HERE. He had 73 catches for 1,137 yards and 19 touchdowns last fall. He graduated as the school's all-time leader in receptions, receiving yards and touchdown receptions.

A story about Sutherland's pursuit of a state title notes that he set a school record with 24 touchdown catches as a junior. (LINK) From that story:
“Jarmone is a guy you just can’t say enough good things about,” Newman coach Nelson Stewart said. “He really checks every box for me. He’s got great explosiveness, he’s twitchy, a violent blocker. Just a great wide receiver and great team leader."
Sutherland was a Louisiana Sports Writers Association Class 2A all-state selection. (LINK)

Oh, and Sutherland's quarterback? That would have been Arch Manning, the MaxPreps national high school freshman player of the year, son of Cooper and and grandson of Archie Manning.
