Hoya Notes - First Scrimmage Reaction and the Last Week of Training Camp

From the Desk of Kevin Kelly

Dear family, friends and fans,

I wanted to start this note by thanking all of you who have come out to practice through the first two weeks. The coaching staff, all of our student-athletes and I appreciate your support.

I also wanted to take out a second to extend congratulations to Andrew Schaetzke, who has earned Outstanding Achievement by a Male Athlete, a much deserved honor for a great 2011 season and career here at Georgetown.

On Saturday, we held our first scrimmage after 17 practice sessions. As I've said in the past, these situations are different and difficult for a head coach, because you want to see both sides, the offense and the defense, do well. After watching the film later on Saturday afternoon, I can tell you it was a typical first scrimmage. We did some nice things on offense and did some nice things on defense. But we still have a lot of work to do before our first game at Davidson on September 1.

One huge positive that we took after running 120 plays during the scrimmage, is that we were able to get out of it healthy and we were able to evaluate our backup quarterbacks, who both showed off their talent on Saturday.

Also, after dealing with earthquakes and hurricanes one year ago, the weather has been great for practice. We all hope that continues, as we'll be holding our second and final scrimmage of training camp on Wednesday evening. We will start with a kicking script, before moving into our scrimmage format, which will be the culmination of our training camp. Thursday and Friday will begin preparation for Davidson and Saturday and Sunday we will give the guys off for orientation.

On Monday, we will continue to prepare for Davidson, before leaving on Friday morning. It's always around this time of camp that the guys start to get chippy and are tired of practicing against each other, so lining up against someone in different uniforms will be a welcome change.

Optimism is high as we've had a great camp so far and our expectation is that we will continue to get better with each day!

Win the Day!

Coach Kelly
