The Loomis Chaffee football program has helped to create several college football players who are competing and making headlines for their schools, as this weekend's action demonstrated.
In a battle of Pelican alumni, Andrew Schreibstein '18 of Williams College and Devin Clyburn '17 of Bates College faced off against one another in a New England Small College Athletic Conference matchup. Schreibstein kicked a 31-yard field goal, had four extra points, and handled the kickoffs and most of the punting for Williams as the Ephs stayed undefeated with a win over Bates. Clyburn saw time for Bates in the defensive backfield.
The Pelicans were also well represented as the University of New Hampshire beat the College of the Holy Cross. Kieran Presley '14 had 87 yards on five catches and a touchdown from his starting position as a wide receiver for UNH, and his teammate, starting tight end Justin Malone-Woods '15, caught a touchdown for the Wildcats.
