Bo Hines has decided to hang up the cleats and issued a statement that his decision was based on medical reasons. We would have loved to see Bo this year, but luckily the WR corps is one of our deepest units. The Blue-White scrimmage took place on Saturday and gave us a good opportunity to evaluate the returning talent and rookies. The runningbacks are a versatile group with Lamar, Salter, and newcomers such as Dudek all adding different running styles to keep the defense off balance. The offensive line is getting better by the day and we keep hearing about the great performances in camp by Marback, Strother and Bezney. The coaches have been thrilled with Rawlings’ development thus far. On the defensive front, Fraser flashed in early practices and Daniel James made a few nice plays in the scrimmage. It will be interesting to see who earns the starting spots at defensive tackle with Tyler, Fraser, Crowle, James and others battling it out. Oplinger and Rymiszewski have been the heart and soul of the defense so far this preseason.
The Bulldogs open the season on September 16th at Lehigh.
