2012 Alumnus Paul Stanton’s Four First-Half Touchdowns Help Harvard Defeat Yale
Just a college sophomore, Paul Stanton, a 2012 Jesuit alumnus, is already leaving a permanent mark at Harvard University. The former Blue Jay running back scored four first-half touchdowns on Saturday, Nov. 23 to help his Harvard Crimson football team defeat Ivy League rival Yale, 34-7. The victory gave Harvard a share of the 2013 Ivy League title.
“It was a football game and a performance I’ll remember for quite some time,” said Jesuit athletic director Dave Moreau, who made the trip to New Haven, Connecticut with two other members of the Blue Jay family.
Stanton scored on 18 and 21-yard screen passes and rushes of 2 and 25 yards. He finished with 118 yards rushing and 40 yards receiving. In ten games this season, Stanton has scored 15 touchdowns.
Moreau remembers another Blue Jay who had success in the Harvard-Yale series known as ‘The Game.” Ryan Loproto, an alumnus from the Class of 1998, intercepted passes in three consecutive Harvard vs. Yale games. Loproto played for Yale. Moreau was there for one of those games (Ryan’s last college game), too.
