Lehigh Football Prospect Friday: Offense Galore


A new year, and a new feature to get everyone to "Signing Day" 2010.  I'll cherry-pick five recruits that have listed Lehigh as "schools of interest" and recount what I've been able to find out about them. 

I can think of no better place to start than in Lehigh's backyard. (more)

A Lehigh Weekend of Wrestling, Hoops... And Eagles


I haven't led with wrestling yet this year, but with the Virginia Duals starting tomorrow morning at 11 AM, I figured it was time to highlight the No. 11-ranked wrestling team in the nation, who will be grappling tomorrow at Hampton Coliseum in Hampton, VA.

Lehigh currently has six wrestlers ranked in Intermat's Top 20, among them senior 133 lb Matt Fisk (13th), senior 141 lb Seth Ciasulli (18th), senior 165 lb Matt Galante (18th), freshman 174 lb Robert Hamlin (18th), and senior 184 lb David Craig (15th).  But it's the big guy - sophomore heavyweight Zach Rey (6th) - who really has people talking.  His only official loss came to the 5th rated heavyweight in the country, Iowa State's David Zabriskie.

Lehigh Football Recruiting "Blitz"

I don't pretend to be an expert on recruiting, but with "signing day" only a month away I do turn my attention to football recruiting and Lehigh's needs on the recruiting front.  I'll break this into two parts: one, my analysis on what Lehigh's needs are in the recruiting offseason, and two, what I can scrape up about some of the prospective incoming athletes for the class of 2015.  Today, I'll be analyzing what I feel Lehigh's recruiting needs are.

So for me, it is sort of a recruiting "blitz" in the sense that I haven't prepared all season for this, and (much like my undergraduate years, I might add) I crammed the night before this blog posting to scrape something presentable together.  (more)

Double-Dipping At Stabler This Weekend

Taking advantage of a holiday weekend - and a 5:00PM start for the women's game - I hustled my family into the car on a frigid Saturday afternoon to make my pilgrimage to Stabler to take in a women's/men's basketball doubleheader featuring my Mountain Hawks.

After pulling into the parking lot, we walked into Stabler as a physical, emotional Akron team started to really take it to the flat Lady Hawks, who was playing their third basketball game in five days. The 6-6 Zips, who just fell to Temple 55-43 a few days ago, surged to a 23-14 lead after Akron senior G Ayla Guzzardo stole the ball from junior G Erica Prosser to convert an easy transition basket.
