Reuland following his brothers' footsteps

I spoke with wide receiver Austin Reuland for a story on Yale’s freshmen, which will run Saturday.
Reuland was one of the few bright spots in the Bulldogs 45-6 loss to Cornell last weekend. He finished with six catches for 79 yards and was an Ivy League honor roll selection for the week.
Reuland’s quick success shouldn’t be much of a surprise. He’s learned plenty from his brother Konrad a starting tight end for the New York Jets, along with his other brother Warren who played wide receiver at Stanford.
“Techniques on how to block, run routes, they know everything,” Reuland said. “They’ve been through it all. Any time I have a question, I call them up.”
Of course, I had to ask about Tebow Mania. Konrad actually went on a recruiting trip to USC with Tebow and now it’s come full-circle in New York.
“[Tebow] is a pretty low key guy,” Reuland learned from his brother. “He’s not about the media at all. He loves him. “
And Reuland knows Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez pretty well, too. In fact, Reuland’s father coached Sanchez in youth league basketball.
Also, here’s a story on DE Allen Davis. He’s given the Bulldogs some consistency in an expanded role this season on the defensive end.
