You said "dumb football guys"....I didn't
What that means is that almost every varsity athlete gets into Amherst of their own accord and their own academic achievements, and most just happen to play sports (once again, athletic but not jocks). There are certainly a few recruits, but it's a very small number, so most varsity athletes are likely regular-admits who coincidentally play sports.
Are you kidding???
Were Division III, but definitely have some DI potential on campus. Our players are really just nerds in uniform, so they chose to come to Amherst to get their game on while maintaining a rigorous academic schedule.
