He also became the first Ivy Leaguer with 50-yard field goals in consecutive games including an Ivy and Yale record tying 54-yarder against Cornell. Mante is a political science major with a 3.32 grade point average.

Sheffield was Yale's leading receiver with 61 catches as a senior, the most since Ashley Wright caught 61 passes in 2005. Named Yale's MVP, Sheffield finished as Yale's third all-time leading receiver. Sheffield, an economics major, has a 3.33 GPA.
