Hoya Notes - Post-Game Davidson
From The Desk of Kevin Kelly
Dear family, friends and fans,
The first weekend at Davidson was an interesting one. Leading up to the game, I talked to the guys about how they would establish a personality for our football team. We had not seen how they would handle and respond to adversity, and we had not seen how they would respond to winning or losing. We didn't expect to be tested so quickly, but lightning delayed the game for over an hour, then we lost our leader and starting quarterback, during the first series of the game. I think we handled everything in a very positive way and it showed us the strong character of this year's team very quickly.
On offense, we ran the ball better than we have in a long time. Aaron Aiken came in and did an awesome job for us and the offensive line played very well. Nick Campanellahad one of his best games for us, making several long runs and scoring four touchdowns. He was our offensive player of the week in addition to earning a well-deserved Patriot League Offensive Player of the Week.
Our defense was as physical as we've ever been. Dustin Whartonhad double digit quarterback hurries and two sacks and Rob McCabe was his usual self, with 17 tackles and three tackles for loss to earn the Patriot League Defensive Player of the Week. I was pleased with the job we did of putting pressure on their quarterback. Dustin and Rob were our co-defensive players of the game, but there were many others who did a great job getting in Davidson's backfield.
On special teams, Ty Parsons had a nice collegiate debut, with a game-changing blocked punt that led to a score for us. Matt MacZura was a perfect five-for-five on extra points and Max Waizeneggerdeserves a lot of credit for the way he handled the snaps. Matt and Max were our co-special teams players of the week, as both stepped up and handled themselves very well.
I wanted to extend a special thank you to Bruce Simmons and Dick Williams who were a big help this weekend. Bruce drove our Athletic Trainer Tom DiSanto to the hospital to be with Isaiah Kempfon Saturday night. Also, a special thank you to Tom for getting Isaiah back to campus safely this weekend. We have received a lot of calls from the Davidson administration and our parents and fans sending their best wishes to Isaiah and his quick recovery. It is much appreciated.
We are excited to play our home-opener this weekend against a very good football team in Wagner. Our games with them have always been very competitive and it will be an excellent test for our team. This is Football Alumni Weekend on the Hilltop. We encourage all of the football alumni to come out and enjoy the Glacken Cocktail Hour on Friday evening and then the Kickoff Tailgate hosted by David Goracy on Saturday prior to the game. We will also be honoring Dan Droze, a coach under Scott Glacken, at halftime.
We are looking forward to an exciting weekend on the Hilltop and hope all of you can join us.
Win the Day!
