3 Bulldogs Earn All-NE Honors

Money, McCarthy, Haynes Add To Honors

BOSTON, Mass. – Three Yale defensive players who earned first-team All-Ivy honors this fall have been named to the 2010 FCS All-New England team as selected by the New England Football Writers. Seniors SS Adam Money (Whiteland, Ind.) and DE Tom McCarthy (Chester, N.J.) and junior LB Jordan Haynes all made the All-New England squad.

 

McCarthy, the 2010 captain, led the team with four sacks and three forced fumbles while making more tackles (31) than any Eli lineman despite playing in just seven games due to injury.

 

Haynes, the new Yale captain, had a team-high 102 tackles (third most in the Ivy) to go along with two sacks and a pair of interceptions. He scored Yale's first touchdown of 2010 by running back a fumble four yards against Georgetown.

 

Money (37 tackles) led the Blue with three interceptions and seven pass break-ups. It was the second consecutive year McCarthy and Money earned All-Ivy honors.

 

The New England team, which represents 12 schools, will be honored at the annual New England Football Writers Captains and Awards Banquet on Thursday, Dec. 9, at the Montvale Plaza in Stoneham, Mass.

 

The squad of 30 features 21 seniors along with eight juniors and one sophomore. Four conferences are represented with the Ivy League leading the way with 13 players.
