Yale RB Adds Awards

BOSTON, Mass. – Running Back Tyler Varga (Kitchner, Ont.) added to his 2012 honors by being named first-team All-New England today. The Yale sophomore, who leads the FCS in all-purpose yards, had already earned first-team All-Ivy League status and was named the Bulldogs' team MVP.


He earned top Ivy League honors despite missing two games. He went over 100 rushing yards in five of his eight games and averaged 116.9 per game (13th in FCS) and 5.5 per carry for the season with 935 total yards. A standout kickoff return man, he averaged 194.2 all-purpose yards and earned second-team Ivy honors as a return specialist.


The All-New England team will be honored at the New England Football Writers Captains and Awards Banquet on Thrusday, December 6, at the Montvale Plaza in Stoneham, Mass.
