Incoming Patriot League Players In High School All-Star Games

(Photo Credit: Diane Cebula/The Hampton Roads Daily Press)

Tonight might be the official "kick-off" of Pennsylvania high school all-star games for 2010.  The 36th annual City All-Star Football Game, pitting the Public All-Stars against the Non-Public All Stars, is being played at the Linc this evening starting at 7:00PM.

There aren't any members of Lehigh's incoming class playing in this particular all-star game, but incoming Colgate freshman WR Siddiq Cornish will be playing for the public all-stars.

I thought it might be an interesting blog post to list all the members of Patriot League football classes of 2010 and what all-star games they are scheduled to play in. So here goes. (more)


(Before I get in a whole heap of trouble here: I would like everybody to note that this is a work-in-progress.  It's a daunting task to get information about all the all-star games around the fifty states!  Add a comment to this blog posting if I'm missing any incoming Patriot League player who has played in an all-star game this year, past or present.)

(Much thanks goes to Eastern PA Football, which gave me a huge starting point to all the roster information.)

(Also note: Rosters are subject to change, even up until the last moment!)

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.
