Hoya Notes - From The Desk of Kevin Kelly
Dear family, friends and fans,
First, I wanted to thank all of the people who have supported our program this season from the Gridiron Club to Bruce Simmons and Yvette Logan. They do so much behind the scenes to ensure a great experience at our pre-game tailgates at home and on the road for the friends and family of our home and on the road for our kids and the families and friends of the program.
I also want to thank our 18 seniors who all showed tremendous loyalty and commitment to this program. All of them have contributed to reversing the course of this team and all should be commended for that. This has been a very resilient group. They went through an 0-11 season as freshmen, didn't give up and improved to four wins the next season and to eight wins in 2011. Even this season, as we suffered through injuries at key positions, they showed excellent character in the way they handled adversity and I really admire each one of them.
While this season did not turn out the way we would have liked, it is important to recognize some individuals who excelled. Don Rhodes was named to the Patriot League All-Academic Team and Nick Alfieri was named a CoSIDA Academic All-District. Jeremy Moore earned his third All-Patriot League selection, Nick Campanella earned his second, and Dustin Wharton, Kevin Macari and James Spaly each were deserving, first-time all-league honorees. Robert McCabe finished a brilliant career being named the Patriot League Defensive Player of the Year and is still up for several more post-season awards.
Moving forward, I met with all of our 2013 returners this morning and there is a lot of reason for optimism and excitement for the future. We will have eight returning starters on defense and seven returning starters on offense with a lot of other contributors on both sides of the ball and special teams coming back.
All of our returners had weight testing today and then begin offseason weight training next week, as well as preparing for final exams. Our coaching staff is currently out on the road recruiting and we plan on welcoming plenty of prospective student-athletes to campus in December and January in an effort to reload our program.
I hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving and continues to have a happy and safe holiday season. Also, best of luck to all of our student-athletes with their upcoming final exams.
Win the Day!
