Seven seniors and one junior on the Yale football team have earned preseason All-Ivy status from Preview Magazine.

Four of those student-athletes made the first team: quarterback Patrick Witt ’12, wide receiver Gio Christodoulou ’12 — who has chosen to take advantage of a fifth year of eligibility — linebacker and captain Jordan Haynes ’12, and kick returner Chris Smith ’13.

Smith also earned a spot on the second team for his role as a wide receiver. He was joined by linemen Gabe Fernandez ’12 and Colin Kruger ’12, as well as running back Alex Thomas ’12 and cornerback Drew Baldwin ’12.

Preview Magazine named Seven Elis pre-season All-Ivy last season.
