Lou Miller may get a shot to play on Sundays (CREDIT: Columbia Athletics)
Sorry for the lack of a posting yesterday, but Jordan had her tonsils out and while she is 100% fine, I needed to be there for her. Now I am surrounded by ice cream and ice pops... it could be worse.
Kudos to Austin Knowlin and Lou Miller for being named to the 2009 Football Championship Subdivision Preseason All-American team.
It's interesting that Knowlin was singled out as a punt returner only. While it's great that he's making an impact at that position, Lions fans would love to see his receiving totals move back up to his great sophomore numbers as well. But yards are yards and touchdowns are touchdowns, and we'll take them anyway we can get them.
The group that made the team also notes Miller as an NFL draft prospect, presumably as a linebacker.
The only other two Ivy players on the team were both from Penn. They were defensive line standout Joe Goniprow and kicker Andrew Samson.
McKissick to Mississippi
Late breaking news from Texas tells us that a former Dartmouth commit who may have been looking at other Ivies has actually signed on with Jackson State.
Mississippi is a long way from Hanover in more ways than one, but we wish the young man the best of luck.
