CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – The preseason accolades have begun rolling in for Harvard football, as Lindy's Sports has tabbed the Crimson the preseason favorite to win the Ivy League, as well as slotted it 25th in its national preseason poll.

Individually, sophomore Justice Shelton-Mosley garnered a spot on the Lindy's Sports All-America second team as an all-purpose player. As a freshman, Shelton-Mosley racked up 1,140 all-purpose yards, with 589 of those coming on 40 receptions. He also accounted for six receiving touchdowns. The Sacramento, California native was selected to the STATS FCS All-America third team and was the Ivy League Rookie of the Year.

Harvard is slated to open up the 2016 campaign September 16 at Harvard Stadium when Rhode Island visits Cambridge. The Crimson will go on the road the next weekend to face Brown in its first Ivy contest of the season.
