Myles Lane is perhaps the most prolific scorer in Dartmouth football history. Years after his graduation he held numerous Dartmouth scoring records. In 1927, Lane scored five TDs and 33 points against Temple. That same season he scored 18 touchdowns and scored 125 points. His point total led the nation that season. For his career he crossed the goal line 48 times and scored 307 points. As a sophomore halfback in 1925, Lane's 102 points for the national champions ranked second among the country's scoring leaders. The 6-1, 185-pounder was also a hockey player who would capture All-Intercollegiate honors in that sport. An honors student at Dartmouth, Lane continued his studies at Boston College Law School. Later, he played professional hockey for the National Hockey League New York Rangers and Boston Bruins and was a member of Boston's 1929 Stanley Cup team. He became head football coach at Boston University in 1932 and backfield coach at Harvard a year later. He was a Naval Commander during World War II and, after his discharge from the service, entered politics and law in New York. He was elected to the New York Supreme Court in 1968.
