But contributing to the record of Harvard athletics and making memories with the small (yet fearsome) band of fellow sportswriters at 14P has given me some great stories of my own to tell. And I will continue to tell them for years to come.

Ben Abercrombie Returns to Harvard for The Game

For the first time since the fall of 2017, Ben Abercrombie has returned to Harvard’s campus. The defensive back, who suffered a career-ending injury in his first collegiate game, took in the 135th playing of The Game at Fenway Park.

A Look Back at the Men Who Led Harvard to Beat Yale, 29-29

In The Game of 1968, Frank Champi completed a touchdown pass to Vic Gatto, a play that would set up Harvard's famous 29-29 tie with Yale. But how did those players arrive at that moment, and where did they go once the dust settled on the Crimson's historic comeback?

Seniors Shine, Wind Swirls, and Football Dismisses Columbia, 52-18
