Hoya Notes - Post-Game Wagner, Pre-Game Howard
From The Desk of Kevin Kelly
Dear family, friends and fans,
We are obviously pleased with the outcome of Saturday's win against Wagner. That is a scholarship program with some very talented athletes and, while we still must continue to improve, it was a very good win for Georgetown football.
I think the defense did an outstanding job stopping the run. We ran to the ball well and kept one of the nation's best rushers to about half of his per game average. The secondary improved and did a good job of keeping Wagner from making big plays.
We had a very good day on special teams. Brett Weiss's 49 yard field goal was huge for us, because at the time it extended a four point lead to a seven point lead. Seeing Brett win Patriot League Special Teams Player of the Week is not a surprise, and we're happy that he is getting recognition for the outstanding job he has done for us. Kevin Macari did a good job in the punt return game. Matt MacZura had a good game punting and kudos are in order for our long snapper Craig Montgomery. For long snappers the only time anyone ever talks about them is when they make mistakes, but Craig has done a very nice job for us.
On offense we made big plays when we needed them. Isaiah Kempf's 71 yard touchdown pass to Max Waizenegger was critical in sealing our victory. Isaiah kept his eyes downfield and made a good throw and Max seems to make big plays for us. With that being said we do need to work this week on eliminating the turnovers.
This week we will see Howard University. They are a much improved football team with a new coaching staff who have done a very good job this season. Howard had an impressive fourth quarter comeback win against a good Florida A&M team on Saturday, so we know we will be in for a battle on Saturday for the Mayor's Cup.
We will treat this week as a home game, being able to play across town on Saturday. We will get a chance to sleep in our own beds on Friday night and leave campus for Greene Stadium on Saturday morning.
For all of those who will be in attendance, we are looking forward to seeing!
Win the Day!
