The Game had a special hometown connection this year. The 134th edition of the rivalry between the Yale Bulldogs and Harvard Crimson on November 18 was the final college game for McIntosh alum Andrew Johnson, and he had some special fans in the crowd to support him.
Among the family and friends at the game were McIntosh head coach Lee Belknap and Chief teammates Charlie Goedtke and Trey Walters.
Belknap was touched to see the bond still remains strong.
“Great friends and great teammates united forever by this great game,” he said.
After a record-breaking career at quarterback for McIntosh, Johson chose to continue his playing career for Yale. A senior economics major, he has moved all over the field for the Bulldogs from quarterback to receiver to defensive back and back to quarterback. He gets to finish his Bulldog career off on top as Yale won the game over Harvard 24-3 to clinch the 2017 Ivy League Championship, their first outright title since 1980.
