Football Collects 16 All-Ivy Selections, Jones Gains Academic All-Ivy – Harvard


CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – A total of 16 Harvard football student-athletes earned 2022 All-Ivy accolades, including six First Team All-Ivy choices with three on both offense and defense, the league announced Tuesday afternoon.
 
Aidan Borguet (RB) and Truman Jones (DL) led the way for the Crimson as unanimous first-team choices. Joining the pair on the first team were Thor Griffith (DL), Jack McGowan (LB), Tyler Neville (TE), and Mason Williams (OL).
 
Offensive lineman Jacob Rizy and wide receiver Kym Wimberly represented Harvard on the second team. The Crimson tallied eight players on the honorable mention list – RS Jack Bill, LB Jake Brown, DB Khalil Dawsey, OL Scott Elliott, OL Austin Gentle, DL Nate Leskovec, P Sebastien Tasko, and DB Alex Washington.
 
Harvard’s 16 all-conference picks tied for the second most in the league with Penn, trailing only Yale (19). The Crimson’s total marked its most in a single season since 2015, when that team had 20 players recognized as All-Ivy.
 
Alongside First Team All-Ivy accolades, Jones gained Academic All-Ivy laurels.
