Football Spring Prospectus is Out

Colgate Spring Football Prospectus (PDF file)

Some key facts:

6 home games, with UMass, Fordham, Lehigh and Bucknell all coming to Andy Kerr. That's VERY nice. The big away game will be Lafayette. I don't want to get complacent about HC or G'Town, but... let's be realistic. Just had a random thought: maybe something will go wrong with the G'Town field construction and we get another home game? That would be nice!!!!

We lose 23 letterwinners, return 27. 10 starters returning/12 lost. We know who the lost ones are: Branch, Brown, Graham, Long... a lot of skill. But let's focus on the positive: we return some great players.

Geoff Bean - should be even more of a star in the defensive backfield.
Tom Cassono - I'd like to see him emerge as a solid DE.
Conn Davis - switched from TE to DE. Maybe he'll find a spot there.
Zach Dollar - got the defensive nod for the spring. Looks like it will be him and Nepa. I like that.
Jeff Galletly - he made a name for himself towards the end of last year. I like him back in 2005. He should help shore up the run.
Ryan Hall - BIG (306) OG back on the line.
Ray LaMonica - if he can carry the load for the O, we'll be in good shape. He should be able to rush for 1000 yards.
Ronnie Millen - another DT I look to shore up the run.
Andrew Moore - experience at FS should help us. Him and Bean are here for 2 more years. Awesome.
Todd Mulligan - returning OT.
Mark Mushel - returning OT. I like the sound of both of those. We needed experience here last year. Throw a solid O line with LaMonica running strong, and we can make a run for the title.
Jared Nepa - solid inside. Could be D player of the year in the PL. He's a leader and a playmaker. Just stay healthy and we'll be alright on D.
Kenny Parker - Was the #3 TB last year but could challenge for some more time at WR. He's fast, good moves... can he make the transition though?
Chris Petrone - more returners on the D line...
Mike Rava - I hope he can replace Lane for the field goal duties. Lane was solid.
Mike Saraceno/Lee Sloan - please, one of you take the reigns at QB and run with it. This is our biggest question mark.
Jake Sulovski - another lineman (C) returning with experience. I just love saying that.
Jason Sutton - two more years for our punter. Special teams wins games...
Chris Williams - the 3rd member of the D backfiled with good experience. Our D backfield is set once another corner emerges.
The Wurst Twins - return on both sides of the line. They will be names you hear a lot.

The prospectus gives some insight into the positions. Give it a read!

  • Thanks for letting us know about the football prospectus. It was very complete and informative.

    I notice that Joe Pinion is back on the roster and that Anthony Pumillo now weighs in at 240lbs. I remember when I first saw his name, the coaches were trying to wait to play him until he got bigger. He did!

    Also note that 3 sophomores, who weren't with the team last year are on the roster:
    Mike Garone
    Wilbert Redmond
    Chek Wingo.

    Also, don't remember Al Bailey being listed last year.

    Thanks again for the info that you are providing

    Lennie
