John Spooney, Football

Senior John Spooney (Northfield, Ohio) registered three touchdowns to lead the football team to a season-opening 45-7 victory over Georgetown on Saturday. The tailback rushed for 102 yards, ran for two scores and caught a pass for a touchdown, all in the first half to highlight the team’s first win of the season. Spooney, who ran track last year instead of playing football, rushed for touchdowns of 8 and 7 yards, and caught a 24-yard screen pass for another score.  In addition, Spooney is the three-time defending Ivy League champion in the 100-meter dash.
