Around the Ivy: HARVARD

Around the Ivy: A look at Harvard

Coach: Tim Murphy

Last year: 9-1 (6-1 Ivy)

Preseason prediction: No. 2

Opening game: Sept. 19 vs. Holy Cross 

About the Crimson: Harvard shared the Ivy League title with Princeton last year. Murphy says the offense will need to set the pace. QB Conner Hempel and RB Paul Stanton return. The Crimson has a pair of talented TEs in Tyler Hamblin and Ben Braunecker, who will both pose as threats for opposing defenses. Murphy also says this group of OL is one of the best he’s had. Harvard needs to find a way to replace three starters in the secondary quickly. DE Zach Hodges is one of the best in the Ivy.

Local connections: WR John Van Allen (Hartford), DB Eric Ryan (Newington)
