Give To The Lehigh Athletics Partnership

If you're a grateful alumni who loves to support Lehigh athletics, it's the time of year to donate to the Athletics Partnership. I am proud to be donating to the Partnership this year proceeds that I have made this year through the sale of LFN merchandise, and I'd like to encourage other alumni out there like you to do the same.

Have you ever complained that we don't have enough assistant coaches? Or that Lehigh's not recruiting in a particular area? Those funds are paid for by the Athletics Partnership. It's a tangible way to support Lehigh athletics aside from buying tickets and going to Lehigh/Lafayette. You may not be going to Lehigh now, but you can help support all of Lehigh's teams with a generous gift. Your employer might even match the funds you donate, too.

There are other benefits, too. Want priority on Lehigh/Lafayette seating? Give to the Partnership and see what seats you get. You also get media guides, invitations to special events, and other benefits.

I've been a big mouth about supporting Lehigh sports, and this year I'm putting my money where my mouth is, too. I'd like to challenge anyone reading this blog who hasn't contributed to the Athletics Partnership in the past to donate this year for the first time.

If Murray Goodman can raise $1 million dollars, surely all of us, giving what we can, can match that number every year, right?

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.
