cheng ho leads harvard to victory

Big game over the weekend for Harvard running back Cheng Ho, who ran for 132 yards on 21 carries and scored two touchdowns in the Crimson's 28-14 win over Lehigh on Saturday: Ho Churns Out 132 Yards; Defense Drubs Lehigh, 28-14.

In his first start of the year, Ho scored touchdowns in each half, with 13 carries for 90 yards in the opening half alone. More here: Winters, Ho lead Harvard over Lehigh 28-14. And here's some background on Cheng Ho, who was born in Taiwan: Harvard RB Ho is living a dream.

But wait! In that same game, Harvard linebacker Jon Takamura returned an interception 60 yards for a touchdown. He finished with seven tackles, including 1.5 sacks in addition to his second pick of the year.

Okay, so we're talking about Harvard vs. Lehigh -- not the most exciting match in college football. Still, pretty cool to see Asian Americans playing well and making their mark. (Thanks, David.)

UPDATE: Here's a video reel of Cheng Ho's highlights.
