Game Notes Released
Leading the troops into battle
The Game Notes and Two-Deep are now available here.
-Senior Millie Olawale gets the start at QB, sophomore Jerry Bell listed as the #2.
-The offense is listed as a one-back set, with senior Ray Rangel as the sole setback. Junior Zack Kourouma is his backup.
Three starting WR's are not a surprise in seniors Austin Knowlin and Taylor Joseph and junior Mike Stephens. It's good to see Nico Gutierrez as a backup WR, leading to more hopes that he has recovered fully from his 2007 ACL tear. Coming as a big surprise in the two-deep is sophomore WR Mark Muston, who played in just one game in 2008.
-No suprises on the O-line. Seniors Will Lipovsky, John Seiler, and Evan Sanford are joined by junior Ian Quirk and sophomore Jeff Adams. This is the starting front five we've projected since late last year.
-The defensive "Front 4.0," (my nickame, all imaginary rights reserved), is also not a surprise. 2008 stars senior Lou Miller and sophomore Owen Fraser are joined by senior Matt Bashaw at end and sophomore Chris Groth at tackle. Miller and Bashaw feature super outside passing rushing speed, combining nicely with the bulk and power of Fraser and Groth in the middle. But don't be fooled by Fraser... he's super fast too.
-No big surprises at linebacker either, but it appears 5th-year senior Corey Cameron has at least for now beaten out returning junior Matt Moretto for one starting slot. Moretto missed 2008 with an injury after an encouraging frosh season in '07. Marc Holloway is at Mike and All Ivy Alex Gross is at SAM.
-Another surprise is not seeing sophomore Kalasi Huggins at the corner slot. We'll keep an eye out for him. Senior Jared Morine gets the nod after earning nothing but praise from Coach Wilson during his training camp missives the last two years.
