J.B. Clark Is Player of the Week Again

Despite the disappointing performance this Saturday, sophomore QB J.B. Clark once again gets LFN Player of the Week honors this week. Clark had his best day statistically in a Mountain Hawk uniform, going 24-for-39 with 338 yards passing and 4 TDs (and no interceptions). He also showed a ton of grit, rallying from a 21-6 deficit for 27 unanswered points. He could have very easily had five TDs: he hooked up on a 58 yard strike to senior WR Sekou Yansane that was set up a 6 yard TD run by senior RB Adam Watson, too. His gutty performance makes him the Player of the Week this week.

Game balls will be going to:

Reader's Choice: Sophomore QB J.B. Clark

Offense: (tie) Senior WR Sekou Yansane and senior WR Mike Fitzgerald (Yansane: 6 receptions, 113 yards, 1 TD, Fitzgerald, 7 catches, 111 yards, 2 TDs)

Defense: Senior DT Brian Jackson (7 tackles, 2 tackles for loss)

Special teams: Sophomore DB/KR John "Fear Itself" Kennedy (5 kickoff returns for 89 yards, plus a 15 yard interception which set up Lehigh's last TD.)

Congratulations to all the winners.

J.B. Clark is one of the worst Lehigh quarterbacks making choices in a long time. His completion percentage was terrible the past two weeks.

Adam Watson should have been on the list for player of the week. He was great the past two weeks.

a completely agree with LUMNUT

lumnut, Clark will be legendary by the time he leaves here and Im betting he could kick your ass too.

From everything I have heard, the freshman Lum is an outstanding talent and has the best arm on the team. There is a real possibility that Lum beats out Clark for the starting job next year and Clark never gets a chance to become "legendary".

well you are right, it will be a real battle for that spot. Im enamored with Clark's size and drive to be the best. I have seen Lum live and although he is a different type of quarterback he has talent like Randolph from HC

I am quite sure you will see Randolph on Sundays

What happened to Lum this fall? He couldn't beat out Clark this summer what makes you think he is going to beat him out next summer? Lets be serious guys....

Very few true freshman start at quarterback since it takes time to learn the offense. Randolph is the best quarterback the Patriot League had seen in a long long time and even he didn't start as a freshman.

JB Clark is going to be the best quarterback this patriot league has ever witnessed. Nothing bad about Lum but he better be packing his bags is he ever wishes to see the ball in his hands again.

After watching this team all year, JB Clark has actually been a pleasant surprise. He has clearly shown improvement through the year. He was 24-39 for 338 yards against Colgate. He did everything he needed to do to win the game. I also agree that Watson was a beast at RB.

Defense has been the problem in the two league losses not the offense.

Unless Coen is gone or changes his approach, it is unlikely Coen will start Lum as a sophomore instead of Clark. Clark is a known commodity. More importantly, if Andy survives to coach one more year, I don't believe he's going to bet his career on an untested sophomore.

Lumnut lets take a look back at colgate.... and check those percentages and lets see how "horrible" they really are.

You dont think Coen will go with an untested sophmore and go with the known commodity? Suppose the sophmore is light years better. Just wait and see, the comp won't even be close.

hey dumbnuts, i mean lumnutz, so sorry i mean lumnut. nothing bad about lum and i hope he has a great career. but i just don't see him even in a tryout against clark. lets get serious...clark is a potential balla and is gonna make it happen. and jeff you don't even know what your talking about.

Take it from someone who knows what it takes to play the game.. my boy J.B. will be just fine for the next two and half years. See you on Sunday's cuzo. Good luck the rest of the season Lehigh boys.

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.
