Head Coach Kevin Kelly and the Hoyas meet Lehigh on Saturday.

Hoya Notes -
From The Desk of Kevin Kelly
Dear family, friends and fans,
I wanted to personally thank everyone that made it out to Multi-Sport Field on Saturday afternoon for our game with Fordham. We knew going into that game that it was going to be one of the most talented teams we would see this season.
Obviously, we are all disappointed in not winning the game. I told the guys on Sunday that there are no moral victories in football. We need to score more points, we need to keep teams out of the end zone and we need to start fast and finish strong.
At the same time, I am proud of the way that we played, especially in the second half. It says a lot about the character of this team that we continued to fight and I think that is something we can continue to build on going into the Patriot League portion of our schedule.
Right now, we're 0-0 in the Patriot League and will play a very talented, well-coached team at Lehigh on Saturday. Right now we know that we're still in control of our destiny this season and while we've had adversity the coaches need to keep coaching and the players need to keep playing. We have practiced better the last couple weeks, we're starting to get healthy and there is a sense of optimism, as we have a chance to hit the reset button this week against Lehigh.
I wanted to send a note out to Nate Zimmel, who has always talked about averaging 14.0 yards per carry after his fake punt rush against Fordham in 2010. It was a memorable play. Last Saturday, Alec May passed him on the yards per carry list. It was the same deuce right purple check and Alec got a good look and took off for 28 yards.
We're looking forward to seeing as many fans as we can in Bethlehem, Pa. this week when we start our Patriot League schedule with Lehigh.
Win the Day!
