Smith honored by Ivy League

It should hardly come as a surprise that Yale sophomore Chris Smith was named the Ivy League Special Teams Player of the Week after returning consecutive kickoffs 79 and 83 yards for touchdowns in the Bulldogs' 27-24 win at Brown on Saturday. Smith became the first Yale player to return two kickoffs for touchdowns in the same game and his 178 yards on three kickoff returns was one shy of the school record set by David Knox in a 2002 game against Penn. Smith also led Yale with six catches and 45 receiving yards.

Smith was also named the Football Championship Subdivision National Special Teams Player of the Week by The Sports Network.

Former Cheshire High star Billy Ragone, a sophomore quarterback at Penn, was named the offensive player of the week as he was 11 for 16 passing for a career-high 182 yards and also ran for 75 yards in the Quakers' 52-10 win over Princeton.
