Most Eligible Tigers

Everyone wants to find someone, so here at the Gazette we thought we would help all the singles out there find that special someone in time for Valentine’s Day.

After a meticulously scientific and highly analytical search, we narrowed down the nominated singles to our top choices.

All of the bachelors and bachelorettes are varsity athletes. These lovely jocks all have more than hot bodies and smoldering eyes. They are funny, smart and charismatic.

They all deserve to find someone equally great.

So, this Valentine’s Day give these eight singles a call and support your Dal athletes in more ways than one.
