WASHINGTON - Hoya Notes -
From The Desk of Kevin Kelly
Dear family, friends and fans,
I wanted to thank all of the alums and parents for their unwavering support of this team through a tough season. I was proud of the way our guys fought until the end, to get a 28-21 win against Holy Cross. They could have given up after we fell out of contention to win the Patriot League, but as I have said many times before, there are a lot of high character guys in our locker room and they have continued to prove that every week.
I was especially happy for our 24 seniors to go out with a win. Their contributions to this program will be remembered for a long time and it's nice that their last memory in a Georgetown uniform will be walking off the field with a win. It was also something for all of our returners to build on. Baseline testing for our winter training program - which begins January 9 - is this week, so the guys are already starting to prepare for the 2014 season.
Last week, five of our student-athletes were selected to the All Patriot League first and second team. Dustin Wharton earned first team honors, while Dan Sprotte, Nick Alfieri, Alec May and Jordan Richardson were all named to the second team. Each is very deserving of the recognition and they all serve as great representations of what this program is all about. Alec was also named to the Patriot League All-Academic Team, which is a great award, showing he is the true embodiment of the term, student-athlete.
The coaching staff is hard at work on the road recruiting and getting ready for official visit weekend on January 13.
On Monday, we did our third segment for NBC 4's Wednesday Child with Barbara Harrison. Alec May, Kyle Nolan, Tim Barnes, Harrison Glor and Michael Kasten were all on hand to hang out with Nick, a young teenager in foster care, who is looking for an adoptive home. We spent time with Nick in the weight room and then headed to the field to play football for a little while. While this is a huge experience for the young man to experience a college campus, it is also a huge experience for our guys. It's something that can really make them appreciate their own families and the opportunities that they've been afforded, especially around the holidays. You can watch the segment on NBC 4 on Wednesday, December 11 during the 5 o'clock news.
Again, thank you to everyone for their support of the Georgetown football program this season and I wish you all the best holiday season possible!
Win the Day!
