A few more notes...

At 6 foot 7 and 232 pounds, Yale Jr. Michael Leunen looks like he could bolster the Bulldogs frontcourt during basketball season. In fact, Leunen was an all-conference power forward during his days at Westview High in Oregon. His brother Maarty is a pretty good basketball player as well. He is second on the all-time rebounding list at the University of Oregon. He was drafted in the second round by the Houston Rockets and is now playing overseas in Milan. Leunen also has a brother that played football at Portland State.
“I saw a lot of college football and basketball,” Leunen said. “It really fueled my interest.”
Well Leunen has turned out to be a pretty good football player. He’s among QB Eric Williams’ top targets this season and caught the Bulldogs lone touchdown in their 20-10 loss to Lafayette last weekend.
John Powers was thriving in a bigger role this season before he suffered an arm injury against Dartmouth.
The Sr. DB, who has 26 tackles, hopes to be back.
"I have a hunch I have not played my last snap," he said.
Yale is 0-4 and lost its first two Ivy League games of the year. The last time Yale dropped its first two Ivy League games was 1997, the first season under Jack Siedlecki.
