'Round The Girdled Earth They Roam

The rumor a little while back was that Dartmouth coach Buddy Teevens was taking a recruiting trip to Alaska. Now we know why.

Set to join the Big Green program next fall is 6-foot-4, 230-pound quarterback/linebacker Jace Henry, the Alaska Gatorade Player of the Year from Lathrop High School in central Fairbanks, Alaska. Find the Tweet confirming his college choice HERE.

Henry led the Malemutes with 1,573 yards and 23 touchdowns rushing and 1,296 yards and 14 touchdowns passing in just nine games He also averaged 36.8 yards punting and chipped in 16 tackles. Find stories about him HERE and HERE.

Henry's highlight film is available HERE.

Green Alert Take: I've always thought Canada should be a fertile recruiting ground for Dartmouth given the rare opportunity to be able to tell a high schooler, "Come south for college." That works doubly for Alaska. Can anyone remember the last Alaskan to suit up for the Big Green? I can't ;-)
