Ivy League Awards (11/14) / Harris on honor roll



The Ivy League football awards press release:

OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Penn sophomore wide receiver Justin Watson (Bridgeville, Pa.) put up one of the best offensive performances in school history to launch the Quakers to a 35-25 win at No. 12/13 Harvard. On a ferociously windy day, Watson finished with 249 all-purpose yards -- a career-high 149 receiving yards and a career-best 100 yards rushing -- to finish just outside the top-five best offensive outputs in the program's 139-year history. He added a pair of long touchdowns, including the back-breaking 79-yard scoring run in the fourth quarter. With Penn leading by just three in the fourth quarter, Watson took a handoff and ran 79 yards to give Penn a 10-point lead it did not relinquish. He accounted for 100 of Penn's 164 rushing yards on just five carries and 149 of Penn's 245 receiving yards on seven catches.

Watson's Statistics for the Week
5 car. for 100 yds., 1 TD, 7 rec. for 149 yds., 1 TD

DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Dartmouth senior cornerback Vernon Harris (Succasunna, N.J.) set the tone early, picking off two passes in the first quarter, to contribute to the Big Green's seven recovered turnovers in a 34-18 victory at Brown. Harris’ first interception came on Brown's first play from scrimmage in which a receiver caught a lateral then threw downfield, only to have him blow up the trick play. Late in the first quarter, he plucked a pass from the air and returned it 29 yards to the Brown 25-yard line. He also posted a trio of solo stops on the day. Harris' coverage contributed to holding the third-ranked passing offense in the FCS to a mere 95 yards through the air.

Harris' Statistics for the Week
3 tkls. (3 solo), 2 INTs

SPECIAL TEAMS PLAYER OF THE WEEKDartmouth sophomore running back/return specialist Ryder Stone (Calgary, Alberta, Canada) provided what could be considered the most pivotal score of the game in the Big Green's victory at Brown. With a nine-yard touchdown to his credit on the day already and Dartmouth leading 14-6, Stone gave the Big Green a boost, fielding the kickoff at the 11-yard line and weaving his way through the coverage 89 yards for a touchdown. It was the Big Green's first kickoff return for a touchdown in three years. Dartmouth went on to build up a 34-6 lead into the fourth quarter and eventually got the 34-18 win.

Stone's Statistics for the Week
89 yd. KOR for TD, 15 rush yds., 1 TD

ROOKIE OF THE WEEK
Harvard freshman wide receiver Justice Shelton-Mosley (Sacramento, Calif.) amassed 158 all-purpose yards, including 126 on kick returns, 21 rushing and 11 receiving in the Crimson’s loss to Penn. Shelton-Mosley threw for a touchdown on the first passing attempt of his young career, connecting with junior tight end Anthony Firkser on a 28-yard scoring connection in the second quarter. He ran the ball once for 21 yards and made four catches for a total of 11 yards

Shelton-Mosley's Statistics for the Week
28-yd. TD pass, 126 KOR yds., 21 rush yds., 11 rec. yds.

Sorry to see Hunn depart, but glad to see the blog up and running again.

I seriously doubt CHunn was let go because of that. It's not like meeting Reno and covering Yale football was his only job at the Register. But glad to see the blog still going.

To beat Harvard Yale needs to execute on both sides of the ball for the full 60 minutes. For most of the season Yale has played poorly in the first half and rallied for a strong 2nd half. A strong start will rattle an already frustrated Harvard squad leading to unforced errors and a upset victory for Yale.

Limiting penalties and turnovers is essential. Yale can't afford to make more mistakes than Harvard. To beat Harvard they will need to win in turnovers and penalties.

Finally, Yale needs a rigorous week of practice to insert some new plays to keep Harvard off balance. The temptation to kick back and enjoy the week's festivities needs to be avoided. There's just one game left. Yale will have all winter to relax. Now is the time to prepare.

Only chance Yale has on Saturday is if the Harvard buses breakdown on the way to the game. First class vs no class.
