Abare honored

Yale senior linebacker Bobby Abare was named Ivy League Defensive Player of the Week after intercepting two passes, one which he returned 32 yards for a touchdown and making 10 tackles in a 31-28 double overtime win over Holy Cross.

Abare leads 2-1 Yale with 27 tackles and is tied with defensive backs Steve Santoro and Adam Money for the team lead with two interceptions.

Also, Yale's junior varsity team lost to Brown 17-0 Sunday. Former Ansonia High star Alex Thomas led Yale with 87 yards rushing while Bedford Booth had one of Yale's three interceptions and also forced a fumble.

Drew Baldwin becomes the first freshman to crack Yale's two-deep chart this season as he is listed as the backup to Casey Gerald at cornerback for Yale's game against Dartmouth on Saturday. Sophomore Gio Christodoulou had been listed as the No. 2 corner behind Gerald for the first three games. Christodoulou is still the Bulldogs' primary punt returner and is the top kickoff returner along with Santoro. There were no other changes in the two-deep. Brady Hart is not listed and Ricky Galvez is still there as tailback Mike McLeod's primary backup despite missing the last two games with a hamstring injury. Look for updates on Hart and Galvez later in the week.
