NH College Football: Big Green optimism
Dartmouth was picked fourth in the Ivy League Preseason Media Poll, and, like the University of New Hampshire, has two quarterbacks on its roster who received significant playing time last season: sophomore Dalyn Williams and junior Alex Park.Park, a transfer from UNH, started Dartmouth’s first seven games in 2012 before missing time with an injury. Park passed for 1,370 yards and seven touchdowns. He was intercepted six times.
Williams is listed as the starter on the two-deep chart, but Dartmouth coach Buddy Teevens has said both will play.
Senior running back Dominick Pierre, who rushed for 830 yards in nine games last season, and junior Kirby Schoenthaler, who averaged over 20 yards per kickoff return, have both been named to the watch list by the College Football Performance Awards.

THE UNIVERSITY OF NEW HAMPSHIRE (1-1, 1-0 CAA) is off until Sept. 28, when the Wildcats will play a non-league game at Lehigh (2-0). Senior receiver Justin Mello, who made the team as a walk-on, has 10 receptions for 218 yards and one touchdown in two games,
“He’s a great story. Complete walk-on. Not getting recruited. We bring him to camp because somebody gets injured, and he earns a full scholarship.”
