Crimson Clicks, August 2nd

News, notes, and mentions of Harvard sports in the past week

The strengths and weaknesses of former Harvard quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick are discussed in USA Today's review of the NFL's Buffalo Bills, the team for which Fitzpatrick starts. From the paper:

"Head coach Chan Gailey sees upside to the former Harvard passer but can only view him as a long-term answer if he significantly reduces his mistakes and begins to show he possesses a winning touch. Buffalo gave the six-year veteran a vote of confidence by not investing its top draft choice (No. 3 overall) in a young arm. Fitzpatrick, meanwhile, did everything possible to assert his leadership during the lockout, including hosting teammates at his Arizona home to facilitate April workouts."

Incoming Harvard basketball recruit Corbin Miller has great things to say about the Crimson in his hometown Salt Lake Tribune:

“I feel Harvard is the best fit for me,” said Miller, who led Class 5A last season in 3-pointers per game. “I felt very comfortable there and my style of play fits with what they do.”...While basketball is the catalyst for Miller attending America’s oldest university, it is the school’s academic profile that really sealed his decision.
“I’ve always known that basketball would be a means to an end, and it’s just a tremendous opportunity and blessing to be able to get one of the best educational opportunities in the world,” said Miller. “It’s been very humbling.”

Football has hired Scott Lukas as Football Operations Coordinator, according to GoCrimson.com. Lukas comes to Cambridge from Bryant University, where he was Director of Athletic Operations.

Until next time, Go Crimson!
