Season Tickets 2011: “Let’s Get this Done!”
As one of my readers wrote in the comments section this weekend, it’s time to make a big push to get EVERYONE who reads this blog to buy season tickets for the Lions in 2011.
Some of us may complain from time to time about our won-lost record, but we all know that going to Columbia games is an extremely enjoyable, inexpensive, fan-friendly experience that EVERYONE should have as much as possible.
So let’s get this done.
Show these players, these hard-working student-athletes that we support THEM and what they stand for above all else.
You now have just THREE more days to lock in your Columbia Football season tickets at the rolled back 2010 prices!!! Click here and get started!
The deal is good through June 30th.
FYI: I’ll be in my usual chairback seats in section D.
Jeff Adams (CREDIT: COLUMBIA ATHLETICS)
Senior LT Jeff Adams is ranked as the 19th overall offensive tackle prospect for next year’s NFL draft.
That ranking comes from the NFL Draft Scout website, which also projects Adams going somewhere in the 7th round.
The site also tags Adams’ fellow offensive lineman Bob Hauschildt as a senior some scouts are watching.
The Columbia juniors on the watch list are Sean Brackett, Joshua Martin, Seyi Adebayo, and a somewhat surprising name in Scott Ward.
(*UPDATE) As some readers have pointed out, I made an error yesterday when I wrote that I didn’t think Ward had started a game in his Columbia career. I knew he played extensively throughout the season, but I relied too much on the late-season official stats. Ward actually started SIX games as a sophomore last season.
Sorry about that Scott.
Top 100 Moments of 2010
#82: Gerst’s Beautiful Touchdown
With Columbia’s lead shaved down to 14-10 in week two against Towson, the Lions got the ball back at their own 20 with five minutes left in the third quarter.
The Light Blue desperately needed to answer the Tigers long TD just moments earlier… or they at least needed to get a few first downs to avoid getting into a bad field position hole.
That’s when the Lion offensive line took over.
In a drive that almost exclusively featured the run, there were a lot of pretty plays.
Leon Ivery had an eight yard scamper for the initial first down.
Sean Brackett had a huge 25-yard run for a first down on a 3rd and 17.
But the nicest play was the 13-yard TD Nick Gerst scored when the drive finally ended on the first play of the 4th quarter.
You can see the TD here.
It was Gerst’s first TD of his career and hopefully the first of many.
