WEEK 6: Penn vs Dartmouth
The NFLPA Collegiate Bowl continued its tour through Pennsylvania, following up their visit last week to Philadelphia, with a return visit for an Ivy League contest at the University of Penn, as the Quakers hosted Dartmouth.
Considered to be the Ivy League’s top prospect, Big Green cornerback Isiah Swann missed his third straight game due to a hamstring injury. A four-year starter and team captain, Swann led the FCS with nine interceptions in 2018, along with 18 passes defended. His size/skill-set has NFL scouts intrigued, so hopefully he can get healthy enough to get back on the field soon.

For Penn, running back Karekin Brooks carried the offensive workload, rushing for 91 yards and two touchdowns on 19 carries. As a runner, Brooks demonstrated excellent patience and vision running behind his line, along with tremendous balance. He also flashed his receiving abilities, catching 10 passes out of the backfield for an additional 31 yards while highlighting his ball skills and versatility.
One last player of note: Dartmouth defensive end Niko Lalos, who as offered preferred walk-on status at Ohio State and Notre Dame but chose to attend Dartmouth instead. A former basketball standout in high school, Lalos possesses great size and showed off some of his athleticism.
