Sports Weekend, 2/25/2011: Is It Football Season Already?

Isn't it supposed to be basketball season?

Well, yes, it is.  It still very much is.  Lehigh's men's and women's basketball teams close out their respective regular seasons this weekend - and we'll find out where they end up seeded in the Patriot League tournament.

But for the first time in a long time around these parts, however, it's also the beginning of a new football era as well.

On Saturday in Reading, PA, the newest member of the IFL, or Indoor Football League, will be facing off against the Reading Express.  That's the Lehigh Valley Steelhawks, who will be headlined by a certain Lehigh football star named LB Matt Cohen. (more)

LFN Hawks of the Year, 2010 Edition

Every year, at the conclusion of the football season, I wrap up last year by issuing my "Hawks of the Year" blog post.  It recognizes - based on my "weekly awards" during the course of the year - those Mountain Hawks who were the top Hawks on the field.

Normally, I like to get this out before Lehigh's end-of-the-year banquet celebrating the football season, but I was unable to do so this year.  Fortunately, however, this means I'm able to add something to the presentation of my "awards" - some of the plaques, courtesy of senior CB/PR Jarard "Main Man" Cribbs, used in the banquet this past weekend, to highlight the winners.

It seems like every year I make some exceptions, and this year is no different.  Like the Oscars, I hold in my hand an envelope which contains this year's Hawks of the year, but I'm going to add one more special award to the "Hawks of the Year" list this year.  If you've followed my blog over the last three months, I don't think you'll have any problem figuring out who that is. (more)
