People

Ricky Zorn played quarterback for the Wildcats, but when he hit the hallowed halls of Harvard, the powers-that-be moved him to wide receiver and he went about learning his new position. After their annual inter-squad scrimmage Saturday, coaches’ tongues are wagging and the school newspaper is singing Ricky’s praises. “Ricky Zorn has probably come farther than any other kid at his position,” Harvard coach Tim Murphy said. “He came in here as a quarterback, and now he is potentially going to be a very athletic, tough, fast, decent-sized receiver.”
