Colgate Rakes in Some Post Season Honors

The Patriot League just released their post season honors, with Colgate making a big splash. Dick Biddle brings home his third Coach of the Year honors, Jordan Scott is no surprise as Rookie of the Year, and interestingly enough, Jared Nepa brings home the Defensive Player of the Year honors over Buchannon candidate Maurice Bennett of Lafayette!
Mike Saraceno also gets the nod as the first team quarterback and Chris Williams and Geoff Bean bring home first team defensive honors.
The second team was also chock full of Colgate players: Jordan Scott, DeWayne Long, Jeremy Wurst, Jake Sulvoski, Jeff Galletly, Chris Petrone, and Cody Williams. Three out of our four defensive lineman were named - not too shabby.
Indeed, nothing was too shabby for a 'rebuilding' year. With more than one of these selections coming back next year (and in two cases, more than that), things will look bright heading into 2006.
My one, minor quabble: Jordan Scott is good enough for second team running back, puts up the most rushing yards in the league in only eight starts, and we only get one offensive lineman on both the first and second teams? Seems to me you can't have it both ways: Either Scott got his yards because of a stellar offensive line, or Scott got his yards because he was the best running back in the league. Silva's got him beat on all purpose yards which include special teams, and Rath has got more touchdowns, but in terms of offensive output, I think Scott has got them beat. I understand the reasoning for Silva and Rath, so I'm not really arguing; just a fan who sees things differently. If Scott's not good enough for first team with those numbers, than we should have some more offensive lineman in there.
Regardless, congratulations to all Patriot League student-athletes receiving honors. Well done!


  • Colgate got two d lineman and two o lineman you are confusing Josh and Jeremy Wurst
