Impressive Honor

Jared Gerbino, who helped the Dartmouth football team to a share of the 2019 Ivy League championship, has been named to the All-Greater Rochester Team of the Decade as chosen for the Democrat & Chronicle. That's him, second from the left in the second row from the top.

Gerbino, who proved himself as a passing quarterback last fall, is the leading QB rusher in Dartmouth history. He was chosen to the All-Ivy League second team after the season. (BIO)

Now packing 245 pounds on his 6-foot-4 frame, Gerbino has signed with former Dartmouth corner John Owens '91, a certified NFL agent, and is training in Florida in preparation for the Big Green's April Pro Day.
Also hoping to keep playing and getting a little love on Twitter is former offensive lineman Zach Sammartino. NFLDraftMD wrote:
Had the pleasure of meeting this prospect recently, impressive young man, not the biggest but excellent at finishing blocks, if your (sic) a fan of nasty IOL play, check out the link...fun fact, he is the nephew of WWF HOF wrestler Bruno Sammartino
For the record, Sammartino is checking in at 6-4, 315 pounds.
The Washington Post writes about Dartmouth offensive quality control assistant Jennifer King doing a year-long coaching internship with Washington of the NFL.
Princeton Football has a story under the headline, Princeton’s Greatest Single Game Offensive Performances of the Ivy Era. Three of those performances came against Dartmouth:

9) Jordan Culbreath runs for 276 yards in 28-10 win over Dartmouth, November 22, 2008

22) Cameron Atkinson runs for 233 yards in a 38-30 victory against Dartmouth. November 23, 2002.

24) Chad Kanoff completes a Princeton record 37 passes in 54-44 defeat at Dartmouth. November 18, 2017.
Speaking of Princeton, the Tigers have announced their 2020 schedule, which is highlighted by an Oct. 10 game at Army. They somehow managed to rearrange their schedule just last spring to fit the game in. (LINK) Dartmouth visits Princeton on Nov. 7.

Green Alert Take I: Given Dartmouth's struggle to find a season-opening opponent in 2020 it will be very interesting to find out how Princeton managed to rework its schedule to make the Army game work at such a late date.

Green Alert Take II: It sure would be helpful if these announcements would include a schedule at the bottom of the release instead of making readers piece the schedule together just through the text.
On the subject of schedules, Marist has released its 2020 slate and it has the Red Foxes playing Davidson a week before the Oct. 17 game at Dartmouth and having a bye the week after. (LINK)
The story is behind a paywall but Cyril Brockmeier, who started on the offensive line for four years under Buddy Teevens at Tulane and followed him to Stanford and Dartmouth (where he served as offensive line coach) is the new head coach at powerhouse Plant High School in Tampa, Fla., which won state championships in 2006, 2008, 2009 and 2011. The former junior varsity coach replaces Robert Weiner, who left for a position at Toledo.
