Lehigh Practice Featured Again in Morning Call

Quick hit: coach Coen was interviewed in today's Morning Call about spring practice. Here's some of the highlights:

“We’ve gone away from any kind of option stuff that we did a lot with Sedale,” Coen said. “We’re concentrating on these guys being more dropback-style quarterbacks.”Coen said the three-way battle for QB will not be decided during spring sessions.“I don’t want to make a rash decision,” he said.Coen wants the competition to continue into August, although he doesn’t necessarily want it to come down to the final week before the Sept. 6 opener against Drake.“Bokosky has got a better grasp of the offense because he’s been here longer, but each day someone does something different,” Coen said. “The decision could possibly come down to our last intrasquad scrimmage [in August], but I hope I can say ‘here’s our guy’ before that.“This is a new situation for me. It hasn’t happened in my time here and it didn’t happen at Penn when I was an offensive coordinator except for on…

Brett Snyder '00 Featured In Fight Against ALS

Brett Snyder '00, forever and always a Lehigh football alumnus, recently appeared in the Morning Call detailing his fight against ALS, or Lou Gehrig's disease.

Keith Groller of the Morning Call has done a fantastic job bringing information about Brett Snyder's foundation, Tackle ALS. Keith has done so through his articles, of course, but has also talked about Brett in his blog as well.

Last weekend, Brett held an Tackle ALS fundraiser in Starters Riverport in Bethlehem, where Brett presented a $15,000 check to another ALS foundation called ALS Hope:

"The pharmaceutical companies come to her, and she conducts her own research. We want to help people and increase awareness about ALS."

"It's all dedicated to making a difference for people livi…

Another Name To The Class Of 2012

Some sharp eyes looking at Lehigh's spring prospectus have found another name added to the class of 2008: LB/TE Mark Wickware. Originally reported to have accepted a scholarship at a Division II school, he has chosen (much to the delight of Lehigh fans) instead to suit up in the Brown & White instead to play Division I football. (Note: I added his name to my original blog posting on the class of 2012 as well.)

Heavily recruited by schools like Rutgers as a junior, an injury at the end of that year had him drop off the radar screen of other Division I schools. Even recovering from injury as a senior he did well enough to be an all-South jersey selection, and just recently was selected to play in the 30th annual North-South Jersey Classic which will take place at the Meadowlands on June 30th. Though listed as a TE, he will be playing the game as a LB - where he'll be playing alongside another Lehigh recruit, LB/FB Bryce Arruda, on the South while LB Mike Groome will be su…
