Gameday in the NYC
Nico in his high school days
Senior FB Nico Papas is mentioned briefly in this piece from Boston.com. It mentions how much he wants to beat Harvard and the fact that his father, John, was once an assistant to Crimson Head Coach Tim Murphy. To say that I wish the Lions would use Nico more often would be an understatement.
Perhaps the football team will get some inspiration today from a major upset pulled off by Columbia tennis senior co-captain Haig Schneiderman who stunned #5 nationally-ranked Chase Buchanan of Ohio State Thursday. Schneiderman won 6-7, 6-2, 6-2 to reach the quarters at the 2011 USTA/ITA National Indoor Intercollegiate Championships.
That quarterfinal match was last night and Schneiderman fell to the #4 player in the nation, Eric Quigley. But what a run!
