Good stuff about Bergen

This was pilfered from the Arizona Cardinals message board, but this seems to be extremely good news for every Lehigh fan's favorite NFL TE:

8-9-05 Practice

For the most part the offense consisted of the 5 OL(including Nick Leckey), Fitz and BJ at WR, Adam Bergen and Aaron Goliday at TE and alternating running backs with J.J. Arrington getting the lion's share. The word is that Kurt Warner and the coaching staff are very impressed with Bergen in the early going. He seems to catch everything thrown his way. There was a lot of red zone work this morning. This appears to be a point of emphasis with Denny this camp.

Had to spread the love! This is clearly the first-team offense that Bergen is working with. It's still real early, but Bergen looks like he has a real shot to be the starting TE for the Cards this year. Here on the east coast, we won't be able to watch the Cardinals/Cowboys preseason game this coming Saturday, but you can bet I'll be checking the boxscore and writeups come Sunday.

Does anyone know why Bergen was not a captain last season?

Because his teammates did not feel that he deserved. The captain are decided through the voting of the entire team and coaching staff during the spring.

Let me get this straight...each player and each coach vote for three captains, and the three players with the most votes become captains?

"The captain are decided through the voting of the entire team and coaching staff during the spring."

At least that is how it is supposed to work. I know of two different occasions in the past two years that, let's just say, the head coach had more of a say than the players. Anyone care to guess?

OTHER BATTLE FRONTS:— TE Adam Bergen, an undrafted rookie, grabbed an 18-yard pass from Kurt Warner in a scoring drive and has solidified his spot on the first team. ... TE Eric Edwards, who was on the first team, has a pectoral tear that will sideline him at least two weeks. ... Bobby Blizzard, an All-NFL Europe pick, has dropped off the radar.

What does it matter whether Bergen was captain or not. Maybe the rest of the Lehigh Football team should of followed his example and worked as hard as he did and they might of won the Villanova game, Lafaytte and James Madison Game. Hard work makes a player not being captain.

Nick Shafnisky Is Pushing Hard to Get To Play at the Next Level in Football

"Don't take anything for granted, just keep pushing."
Those are the words of QB Nick Shafnisky, told to The Whitehall-Coplay Press all the way back in 2013, about his preparation as a high school athlete.
And they seem to summarize the Whitehall, PA native perfectly, then as now.
Dubbed the "Male Athlete of the Year" by that publication, the article goes on about Shaf's many exploits at Whitehall high school - leading the Zephyr football team to a co-Lehigh Valley Conference title, becoming the first player ever in that conference to rush and pass for over 1,000 yards, and earning the league's co-MVP award as well.
He also was a member of the Zephyrs playoff basketball team, and for good measure also helped set a record for the 4x100 relay team as well.
At Whitehall, and at Lehigh, coaches pushed him, but it was his own hard work that helped make him the best athlete he could be.
This weekend, Shaf, like every eligible college football player, will be …

What Are You Doing the Night of Lehigh's 2017 Home Opener?

I have this vision.

It's the weekend of the home opener at Murray Goodman Stadium, Labor Day weekend.  It could be a Thursday, Friday, or Saturday.

And it's 6:00 PM.

In 2018, the Lehigh football team will open the season with a big celebration of the football program - at Navy, Lehigh's first game against an FBS team in over a decade.

In 2017, why not, as a one-off opportunity, try to have one Lehigh football game, the home opener, be the first-ever night game at Murray Goodman Stadium?

Will it cost money?  Yes.  Will it be easy?  Probably not.

However, is it doable?  I've got to believe the answer is "yes".

Seven Positive Thoughts About All the Patriot League Recruiting Classes

It's recruiting season.  Every incoming recruit is a Patriot League all-star, everyone is a first team all-American, everyone is undefeated.  It's all good times, a chance for kids to be admitted to some of the best Universities in the world.  In that, it's a win for everyone.

While we wait for each of the remaining recruits to be announced as a part of their recruiting classes, I thought I'd comb through all of the incoming classes of the Patriot League and tell you what sticks out to me.

This summart isn't a ratings-based system, than folks like 247Sports have in terms of measuring the number of "starred recruits" (they list Holy Cross as the "winner"), or even a hybrid-based system, like LFN's yearly Patsy Ratings (last seasons "winner": Lehigh) or HERO Sports' list of the top overall FCS recruits (which lists Lafayette as the "winner").  It's just one guy, looking at the recruit lists, and giving his opinion.
