Welcome to the BLUE & GRAY SPRING FOOTBALL SCRIMMAGE
The weather is certainly a lot nicer than what it would have
been for the originally scheduled game time (yesterday at 3 p.m.). With the nice
weather comes a nice crowd.
There are a ton of former Hoyas here today, including new
Gridiron Club President Bruce Simmons, former President and current head of the
mentorship program Jim Lenihan, as well as Ataefiok Etukeren, a few former No.
35's in Nick Umar and Nick Parrish (the program's all-time leading tackler in
case you forgot). Also it is nice to see so many of this year's seniors, like
Paul Sant'Ambrogio, who is sitting right in front of the pressbox. Dan Semler
and Erik Antico are here, down the stands a little way is Keerome Lawrence, Danny
Thompson, Jr., Gyasi Parrish and Philip Oladeji.
Probably a few hundred people in attendance as we get closer
to the start of the game, a nice crowd considering the game is traditionally on
the same day as the team's award banquet, which was held yesterday.
Georgetown's new captains are SLOT Jeremiah Kayal and safety Wayne Heimuli.
Kayal will not play today, but Heimuli is suited up on the blue (defensive)
sideline. The offense will be wearing gray.
I'll be back with more from today's game after the jump...
