Prather named to CFP

scholar-athlete team

Senior linebacker Darcy Prather was named to the College Football Preview 1990 pre-season scholar-athlete team. Following the 1989 season, Prather was selected a second-team GTE CoSIDA Academic All-American and was an honorable mention Division III All-American.

Two MIT coaches have been named coach of the year in their respective sports. Track coach Gordon Kelly has been named New England Division III Indoor Coach of the Year for the 1989-90 season, in which he led the Engineers to a second-place finish at the national championships. Kelly, who retired from coaching at the end of the spring outdoor season, compiled a 182-44-3 record in his 17 years as head of the indoor and outdoor track programs.

And baseball coach Fran O'Brien has been selected coach of the year in the summer collegiate Cape Cod League. O'Brien led Harwich to a 22-21-1 record.

The MIT football team is profiled in the Sept. 3, 1990, issue of Sports Illustrated, in a feature article on respected academic institutions that compete in varsity football. The University of Chicago and Swarthmore College are also highlighted.
