Ivy League Weekly Awards

From the Ivy League...

Dartmouth senior running back Dominick Pierre (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.) powered the Big Green to a 20-13 homecoming victory over Yale, the first win at home against the Bulldogs since 2002. Pierre took the handoff a career-high 37 times for 167 yards and the decisive touchdown in the fourth quarter. He also led Dartmouth in receiving with four catches for 63 yards, giving him a personal-best 230 all-purpose yards. It was Pierre's third-straight game with 100+ yards on the ground and seventh of his career. In addition, he surpassed 2,000 career rushing yards early in the third quarter, making him just the third Big Green player ever to do so. Pierre also took over the Ivy League lead in rushing with 133.8 yards per game.

Dartmouth senior defensive back Mike Banaciski (Hillsborough, N.J.) tied a career high with 10 tackles to help the Big Green hold Yale to a season-low 264 yards and get the team's first Ivy League win this season. Two of Banaciski's tackles (both in the fourth quarter) went for a loss, but his biggest plays came on two fumble recoveries. The first recovery came late in the third quarter with the score tied at 13 and the second on Yale's final possession with Dartmouth clinging to a seven-point lead, effectively sealing the victory. As a defensive unit, the Big Green held the League's leading rusher to just 64 yards on 20 carries.

Brown senior placekicker Alexander Norocea (Hermosa Beach, Calif.) stayed perfect on the season in the Bears' 41-14 win over Bryant, booting field goals of 23 and 38 yards while converting all five of his extra point attempts. Norocea has now connected on all five of his field goal attempts and is 17-of-17 on extra points attempts. He now has 205 career kicking points, which is third all-time in school history and seventh all-time in Ivy League history.

Penn freshman linebacker/punter Donald Panciello (Succasunna, N.J.) punted three times and also played linebacker in the Quakers' loss at William & Mary. Each of Panciello's three punts went for more than 40 yards and two of them were downed inside the 20-yard line. He had a long of 44 yards, which was downed just outside the 20 at the 25-yard line, and averaged 41.7 yards per punt. Impressively, despite the length of his punts, Panciello did not allow a single return yard. In addition, he finished with a pair of tackles and also assisted on a tackle for loss.

Who does this voting? This is a joke.
Vaughan had 20 tackles. How often do you see that?

You probably see a lot of linebackers making 20 tackles when the other team rushes over 60 times for 240 yards.
