Ivy League Weekly Awards



From the Ivy League...

OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Princeton junior quarterback Quinn Epperly (Knoxville, Tenn.) played a career-defining game in the Tigers' 51-48, triple-overtime victory over Harvard. Epperly set school records in both completions (37) and touchdown passes (6) in lending Harvard's 15-game home winning streak. He spread his six touchdown passes around to five different players, including the game-winning, six-yard connection with senior wide receiver Roman Wilson. His six passing touchdowns matched an Ivy League record first established by Brown's James Perry, currently Princeton's offensive coordinator, vs. Columbia in 1997.

DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Dartmouth sophomore linebacker Will McNamara (Chicago) recorded his first two career interceptions, returning both for touchdowns in the Big Green's 56-0 victory over Columbia. McNamara’s first pick came in the middle of the second quarter as he traversed 24 yards to reach the end zone, boosting Dartmouth’s lead to 28-0. He then put the finishing touch on the win by snaring a pass near midfield and weaving his way through traffic for a 51-yard score with the final touchdown of the game. McNamara spearheaded a Big Green defense that allowed just 95 yards and 49 offensive plays as he tied for the team lead with four tackles, one of which went for a loss.

SPECIAL TEAMS PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Harvard junior placekicker Andrew Flesher (Little Rock, Ark.) accounted for 12 points in the Crimson's 51-48 triple overtime loss to Princeton. Flesher, who was pressed into duty for a second week to replace senior placekicker David Mothander, went 6-of-6 on PATs and hit 2-of-3 field goals (38 and 23 yards), only missing a 50-yard attempt. Both of his field goals came in overtime -- the 38-yarder sent the game into the third overtime and the 23-yarder gave Harvard the lead in the third overtime.

ROOKIE OF THE WEEK
Dartmouth freshman wide receiver Jon Marc Carrier (Lutz, Fla.) provided the early offense for the Big Green in the 56-0 shutout victory over Columbia, scoring the first two touchdowns of the day and of his career. On the first Dartmouth drive, he caught a 17-yard pass two plays before taking the ball on a reverse and waltzing into the end zone from two yards out. Early in the second quarter, he struck again by hauling in a 17-yard pass for a touchdown and a 14-0 lead. The son of former NFL wide receiver Mark Carrier finished the day with three catches for 39 yards, his two-yard run and two touchdowns.

Chris:
Your faithful readers understand that the party line on Messrs. F,L,S,and V is day-to-day. That said, is there anything you can say about any of them? Will any of them see action again in 2013? Which ones? Are any of them practicing this week? Which ones? Are any of them on canes or crutches? Which ones? Wearing casts? Which ones?
We understand you're under a gag order, but a little real news would be most welcome. Maybe in code.
