football

Last year was a banner year for MIT football: the team won the last four games of its season and tied the 19-year old record for most wins in a season (six).

In addition, head coach Dwight Smith was named co-Coach of the Year in the New England Football Conference, and Maik C. Flanagin G and Nikolas O. Kozy ’00 earned places on the GTE Academic All-District team.

1999 was a far cry from 1998’s one-win season, and hopefully the beginning of a long-term tradition of winning seasons.

With eighteen of last year’s twenty-three starters returning, this might be the year to actually break that win record.

Last year also featured the return of the homecoming celebration which, despite a heart-breaking 17-14 loss to Curry College, sparked a renewed interest in the football program by the MIT community.
