Yale's new walk-on QB

Lambie Lanman starred at QB at Los Altos High in Calif. He will be a walk-on at Yale this season. Here is a story on Lanman from the Los Altos Town Crier.

Also, some have asked about what the Yale players are doing now that they are on campus. There are around 80 players that have arrived at Yale early.
I spoke to one player and he said most are taking classes and have internships. He explained that the team is in the heart of its offseason strength and conditioning program. Everyone, he says, looks visibly bigger, stronger and faster. The team is holding meetings a few times per week to watch film with position groups and the skill guys are going through 7-on-7 drills.
