  Dinos Report Card: footballPDF files may take a moment to load

Talent: This year's Dinos football team, like last year, was young, but there was no shortage of talent, unpolished as it may be have been. Runningback Anthony Woodson, who had a great rookie year that was perhaps overshadowed due to quarterback Dalin Tollestrup's outstanding '06 season, was superb in his sophomore run, picking up a Canada West rushing title with 1181 yards and six touchdowns--nearly 500 yards ahead of the second-place 'back, Matt Walter, a rookie Dino.

Talent: Fielding another crop of rookie-heavy girls, the field hockeysaurs had the short end of the stick when it came to experienced players. There were some shining stars on the roster, like fourth-year player Kaelyn Barrie and stand-out rookie Jenn Hosfield who were both out from injuries for several games.

Effort: Though the team didn't finish well in terms of standings, it surely wasn't for lack of trying.
