Wallace Earns Award

WR Had Career Day in The Game

NEW HAVEN, Conn. - Sophomore receiver Grant Wallace (St. Louis, Mo.) had his best day as a Yale football player in the season finale at Harvard last Saturday. His 11 catches and 118 yards weren't quite enough to get the Bulldogs the victory, but it did earn him one of the Ivy League Players of the Week awards from collegefootballperformance.com.

Wallace, who caught a 12-yard scoring pass in the fourth quarter that gave the Blue a lead, had a 33-yard reception in the third. Both big catches came on third downs.

Yale fell short (34-24) against the Crimson, but Wallace enabled the Elis to have three leads in the contest.

The son of former Yale running back Bob Wallace '78, Grant led the team with three touchdown catches and was second with 35 receptions and 371 yards while earning his first varsity letter.
