Luke Hussey On the football field, linebacker Luke Hussey ’11 Th’12 is an imposing presence. Standing at six feet tall and weighing over 200 pounds, he completed more than 130 tackles in his collegiate career.

In the classroom, however, Hussey makes an even greater impression. After redshirting his sophomore season, Hussey graduated summa cum laude with a 3.94 GPA in June, and has returned for a fifth year to complete his engineering degree and use his last year of eligibility with the Big Green.

A three-year starting linebacker for Dartmouth, Hussey is now taking on a different role as a Thayer Engineering School student who is completing his BE in environmental engineering. Hussey ended his final college football season in Dartmouth’s Nov. 19 win over Princeton University, which catapulted the Big Green into a four-way tie for second place in the Ivy League.

Hussey, who was also inducted into the Phi Beta Kappa honor society, was a semifinalist for the William V. Campbell Trophy, which is given to the best football scholar-athlete in the country.
