Former Evans tailback Cheng Ho's decision to go to Harvard was obviously about much more than just football.
With a degree from Harvard you can pretty much land any job you want in your field, and the experience he is gaining is invaluable. However, the football thing seems to be working out pretty well, too.
The talented sophomore is coming off his best game of the season as Harvard moved to 4-2 by knocking off Princeton 27-10. The win was the team's third consecutive victory, and Ho played a huge role.
The former Evans star rushed for 121 yards on 24 carries and one touchdown. Ho also caught three passes for 61 yards, including a 43-yarder that set up a score.
For the season Ho leads Harvard in rushing with 364 yards on 84 carries with three scores. He has also caught six passes for 78 yards.
The entire Evans family should be proud of the accomplishments this impressive kid is starting to pile up.
Another area player to Bragg about
Linemen usually do not get the recognition they deserve. Quarterbacks and running backs get all the headlines, but it is the linemen battling in the trenches that allow them to be media darlings. Well, one former county player is at least getting the respect of opposing coaches.
Lakeside product Alex Bragg is making quite a name for himself at Charleston Southern. The 6-5, 280-pound guard red-shirted in 2004 but wasted little time in cracking the starting lineup as a red-shirt freshman in 2005. He has been a starter ever since.
Although Charleston Southern has struggled a bit this season (they are 3-4), Bragg has garnered high praise for his blocking ability throughout the conference. He just missed being named to the pre-season All-Conference Team.
Bragg also plays with former Butler defensive standouts, Jonna Lee and Tyrese Harris.
