Senior kicker Andrew Sullivan and sophomore center Ed McCarthy were named to the 2004 CoSIDA Academic All-District Team. Sullivan has a 3.61 GPA and majors in history, while McCarthy carries a 3.83 and has yet to declare a concentration.
McCarthy, a Fairfield, Conn., native was Ivy League Rookie of the Year in 2003 and has started 17 straight games on the offensive line for the Bulldogs. He played guard last fall and then moved over to center when a teammate was injured prior to the start of the 2004 campaign.He has helped three Yale seniors become career leaders in numerous categories this fall.
Sullivan, a Minneapolis, Minn., native has connected on all 20 PAT this season and is 5-for-9 on field goals. His 38-yard boot with seconds left gave Yale a 31-28 win over Colgate on Oct. 2.
Since there were only 49 nominees, only one team was selected. All of the players on the team become eligible for national academic honors.
