Early Harvest

Hunter Little makes a sack in the Tennessee state championship game

This has to be a record for the earliest published Columbia football committment in the modern Ivy League era... and it looks like it's going to be worth the wait.

Webb School rising senior Hunter Little has reportedly committed to play for Columbia starting in the 2011 season.

Little was a key star on Webb's 2009 state championship team as a defensive end.

Remember, Webb was where the Lions found another great defensive end in Phil Mitchell '09, who was a force before his 2007 injuries, and pretty good after that anyway! Mitchell and Little are the only two Webb School alums, (not to be confused with Webb HS in Old Forge, NY), I know of who have/will come to Columbia according to my Lion Feeder School Database.

Here's an article on Webb's state championship win last December that makes special notice of Little's contribution and the fact that he has come on strong as a player in recent months.

I think the last guy named Little to play for Columbia was Ed Little, who was a starting tackle on the 1961 Ivy League champs. Good sign?

...not to forget the legendary Lou Little.

Hey Jake,
Thought you'd be interested in this one. Friend of mine works out at a gym in NJ where Joe Carini, Tiki Barbers former trainer and tainer to many current pros train. He was telling me he saw Nick Gerst in the gym working out with LaDanian Tomlinson pumping some serious iron and speed drills.

If true, and if we got 3 years of what we had from Ray Rangel in his senior year before he got hurt, then be still my heart. I know, I know, a lot of "ifs," but summer is to football what spring is to baseball, so. . . .

All due respect, but that is obviously not a sack. It is a QB pressure. QB got the ball off.

That is correct, and, in fact, according to Max Preps, Little had no sacks on the year. I'm sure he is a developing talent, but let's check the hyperbole, it doesn't do any good.
