The first half of Saturday’s home opener against Marist was the most complete half of football we have played in the past two years. Our players came out of the locker room focused and ready to play. We led 31-7 at the half and all three areas of the team contributed to the solid performance.Defensively, the effort was led by sophomore defensive back David Akere. David recorded 12 total tackles and had a key interception which set up our first touchdown. Continue reading

Hoyas Fall In Season Opener

September 9th, 2015

I would like to thank the entire Georgetown community for their genuine concern and outpouring of support for Ty Williams. Father Kemp said a Mass for Ty on Monday with our team, and a number of other athletic teams in Dahlgren Chapel. Everyone prayed for Ty’s speedy recovery. I would also like to thank the entire Saint Francis University community. We are eternally grateful for the kindness and compassion they have shown to Ty and his family. Continue reading

We are preparing for our final game of the 2014 season. We play Holy Cross on the Hilltop on Saturday at noon. We will again have our “4 for 40” lunch on Friday.

Playing Smarter

October 14th, 2014

At our team meeting on Sunday, I told the team that I am very happy with our overall effort. If you have seen us play this season, you can see the effort that our players give on each and every play. I also told the team that we must start to play smart, as well as hard. In spite of the penalties and missed assignments, we still were in the game versus a good Patriot League team until the last drive of the game. I am happy with our progress, but not satisfied with the results. We will work this week to play smarter and work towards a victory versus Bucknell. Continue reading

Reacting Better

September 29th, 2014

On the ride back to the Hilltop, I texted the entire team and coaching staff. My message was simple. If we play Hoya Football we can beat any team on our schedule. Attention to detail is a key aspect to playing Hoya Football. We want to be known as a detail oriented, tough football team. One sequence I highlighted to the team focused on the end of the first half. We had a punt blocked for a touchdown with just under four minutes left in the second quarter. The following series the offense had a negative play on first down and we went three and out. This placed the defense back on the field. We then allowed Colgate’s quarterback to run for a touchdown to end the half. Continue reading

A Historic Weekend

September 23rd, 2014

It was a weekend of firsts. It is the first time the Hoyas have defeated an Ivy League opponent on the Hilltop. It was also the first time the Hoyas have defeated Brown University. It was appropriate that we had the first Hoya Football team in modern-day history, the Class of 1964, on campus to witness these firsts. Continue reading

A Complete Game

September 16th, 2014

This past weekend we traveled to upstate New York to play Marist College. Our players performed well and we earned our first victory of the season. Coach Luke Thompson, our defensive coordinator, arranged our Friday run-thru at the United States Military Academy. It was a great experience for our players and staff to see and hear about the history of Trophy Point and to tour West Point. A special thanks to Captain Nichols and Lieutenants Kime and Nesbit who conducted the tour. Continue reading
