Around the Ivy: A look at DARTMOUTH

DARTMOUTH

Last year: 6-4 (4-3)

About the Big Green: The Big Green return Dominick Pierre. The Sr. RB earned second-team All-Ivy honors last season, while rushing for 830 yards and nine TDs.

Dartmouth could use two QBs this season. The Big Green have Dalyn Williams, the reigning Ivy League Rookie of the Year, along with Jr. Alex Park. Williams threw for 974 yards and seven TDs, and has the ability to take off for a long run.

Meanwhile, Park threw for 1,370 yards and seven TDs.

“We are very pleased and fortunate to have Alex and Dalyn back,” Teevens said. “Dalyn came in and replaced Alex mid-season due to an injury, so we feel like we have two starters. Park established himself early on, but we certainly knew Dalyn was a gifted athlete. He played in every ball game, so he kind of developed as time went on and was fully prepared to take over as the starter. The competition between the two has been very healthy. They are both supportive of each other but highly competitive, and I think that has made the position much stronger and the depth much better.”

Dartmouth has a very strong group of LBs on the defensive end led by Sr. Michael Runger, the league’s leading tackler with 98 tackles last season.
