Another Lion from Lyons
6-6, 280 lb. offensive lineman Tom Callahan is coming to Columbia.
Tom is currently a senior at Lyons Township HS in Illinois where he was a captain for the 2010 season, and yes… that’s the same school where we found two-time 1st Team All Ivy and rising senior OL Jeff Adams. (Greg Watson ’93, also came from LTHS).
He is coming to Columbia and already working on being more than ready for the fall:
“Nothing is going to be handed to me,” he said. “You can’t red-shirt at Ivy League schools so I’m going to be working as hard as I can for the rest of the offseason.”
You can see Tom’s highlight video here.

Army Athletic Director Update
Sal Interdonato reports that the whole search process for a new AD at West Point may get a "do over."
Whether that means that our Dianne Murphy is definitely out of the running with the other presumed finalists is not clear.
