Yale recruit honored

Bronxville lineman Stephen Shoemaker, one of 12 recruits to be accepted early into Yale, was named the New York State Sportswriters Association Class C Player of the Year. Shoemaker became just the second lineman since 1997 to earn a NYSSWA state player of the year honor joining Southwestern's Jasen Carlson, the co-Class C Player of the Year in 2009.

The 6-foot-2, 300-pound Shoemaker led Bronxville to the Class C title and was one of seven Bronxville players named to the Class C All-State team.

Two other linemen who have committed to Yale - William Chism and Kyle Rouse were first team selections on the Mississippi Class 3A and Illinois Class 5A All-State teams respectively. Rouse was also named to the Illinois Class 5A All-Academic team while fellow lineman and Yale commit Ben Carbery was an Illinois Class 8A All-Academic selection.

Jim, this has little to do with your latest blog post, but how do you think Stanford's vacant head coaching position impacts the Yale Football Program? If at all? Most people get into the head coaching profession with the goal of someday becoming the head coach at their alma mater. Williams seems committed to winning and to the Yale Football Program, but I can't help but wonder if he is at least slightly interested in the vacant top spot at his alma mater. Thanks

I fully expect his name to be mentioned on potential successors because of his Stanford ties and the San Jose Mercury News blog has already done that. However, I don't think he has been at Yale or accomplished enough here to make him a serious candidate for the head job. If Stanford wants an alum as the head coach, offensive coordinator Dave Shaw would be a natural pick. It is something I will be keeping an eye on, that's for sure.
