Sedale Front Page of NYT Sports Section

Senior QB Sedale Threatt is the subject of today's front page on the New York Times sports section in an article called, "Not Much More Than Name Links Threatt, Jr. To Father". It goes over a lot of the ground that has already been covered by Bill Doherty in his fantastic piece in the Lehigh Alumni magazine, but it gives enough new tidbits to be a good read. (Although I always thought Sedale was a finance major, not a marketing major.)

I'd encourage you to grab a copy of the paper today to read it (or log into the New York Times to read it, which you can do if you're a subscriber), but I will highlight the following:

Lehigh Coach Andy Coen said that Threatt still struggled with his consistency, but that his athletic ability had prompted interest from scouts.

“One scout told me that coming from the [FCS] level, what you have to do is dominate at your position,” said Threatt, who is majoring in marketing. “I can see the field pretty well, but I know they’re going to want me to do more.”

Coen said: “I give the kid a lot of credit for handling things the way he has. We have our weekly conversations, and I always leave with a smile on my face.”


Look for the Yale preview tomorrow.

Maybe he should be a stand-up comedian and forget his NFL dreams.

Comments like that come from classic losers. How many times have you subjected yourself to the criticism of the crowd on your work? Probably never even wore jock. Honor to the person who has the guts to stand in the arena and take the blows. Disgrace to those who hide anonymously and throw stones.

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.
