Chris Lum and the Walter Payton Award

Some football players are their own biggest mouthpiece.  But senior QB Chris Lum, Lehigh's classy superstar from Lake Orion, Michigan, is not.

For many people voting on the Walter Payton award, the FCS equivalent of the Heisman Trophy, they look at statistics, and in Lum's case, they are mighty impressive.

But for a star quarterback - who is most assuredly an NFL prospect - the Lake Orion, Michigan native is surprisingly willing to dish credit to others the way he dish completions to his receiving targets.

It's Towson after Turkey

On Sunday, the playoff matchups were announced, and it was revealed that Lehigh would be playing the champion of the CAA, Towson, on the road in Towson, Maryland.  (Time TBD)

Some folks seemed, perhaps, a bit miffed that Lehigh didn't get the opportunity to host a home playoff game - but on balance, were pleased.  They'll be able to make a short trip to battle the best team in the CAA this year, and also line up against a team that was once a member of the Patriot League.

It's a matchup that has pleased everyone I've talked to.
