Five Big Green football players were selected to the All-Ivy First Team the most the team has had in the past 13 years. tri-captain Charles Bay '11, tri-captain Tim McManus '11, Shawn Abuhoff '12, Ryan O'Neill '12 and Nick Schwieger '12 were all recognized by the League's coaches. Bay, a defensive end, missed the early part of the season with an injury, but finished the year leading the Ivy League in sacks and forced fumbles. Wide receiver McManus led the Big Green in receptions and receiving yardage after missing his junior season with a broken leg. Defensive back and return specialist Abuhoff became the first Big Green player ever chosen at multiple positions after leading the League in passes defended and punt return yardage. Abuhoff is the conference's leading returner and cover man. O'Neill, a left guard, was an anchor on the offensive line that paved the way for a great rushing attack and excellent pass protection. Tailback Schweiger took the Ivy League rushing title with 1,133 yards the second most rushing yards in a season in Dartmouth history. Schweiger also tied the school record in rushing touchdowns with 14 during this season. Dartmouth and Yale University tied for fourth in most honors this season with 10 players overall honored for 11 positions.
