In this week’s installment of Penn alumni Q&A, I had the opportunity to speak to Alex Grendi (2010), a former all-Ivy midfielder/forward. After finishing third in Penn’s all-time career assists list with 20, Grendi left school early in 2008 when he was selected by the Columbus Crew in the 2009 MLS SuperDraft in the third round. After a stint in professional soccer, Grendi started his own company, AX Soccer Tours, which aims to give American soccer players the opportunity to play the game overseas. I had the opportunity to speak to him and listen to him recount his time on Penn’s soccer team.
Winning the Ivy League title in football is something that few coaches ever accomplish. For Penn coach Al Bagnoli and Princeton coach Bob Surace, it took less than four years to win their first Ivy titles. On Saturday, the two will go head-to-head as Bagnoli travels to Princeton for the last time as a coach. In preparation for Saturday’s showdown, The Daily Pennsylvanian had the chance to speak with Princeton coach Bob Surace. Though he is the shortest-tenured Ivy League coach, Surace has already left his mark in the Ancient Eight by winning the title in 2011. Now second in the Ivy League race, Surace looks to take down Penn to keep Princeton's title hopes alive.
To Penn football, winning Ivy games in impressive fashion is nothing new. After defeating Columbia last Saturday, Penn looks to continue its recent success going into the weekend in a showdown against Yale.
As Penn football prepares for some strong competition at the Yale Bowl, we had the chance to speak with the legendary Ivy League quarterback, Penn’s own Gavin Hoffman, about this hectic part of the season. Hoffman broke Penn’s main passing records – those for yards, completions, attempts and touchdowns – after transferring to Penn from Northwestern in 1999. As a freshman at Northwestern, Hoffman started the entire season, including eight games against Big Ten teams.
