|Multi-Sport Athletes Excel at Rutgers06/12/2004 ScarletNation.com|
For some time now, it has been stated that RU football held the key to the "overall" perception of RU athletics. There is little disputing this comment, but now that RU's football program is on the verge of fielding its best team in years, it bears mentioning that this sport is contributing more to RU athletics than just potential positive recognition. RU football is also providing top-notch athletes with an opportunity to participate in more than one sport. Perhaps the most sparkling examples of the "new breed" of RU football athletes are Ramel Meekins (wrestling) and Joe Porter (track and field).
