Colby football to open season at home Saturday

WATERVILLE, Maine — After losing just six seniors to graduation following the 2013 season, the Colby College football team lost 18 in 2014.

Colby head coach Jonathan Michaeles still had a young team last year despite the 18 seniors. The Mules had 45 players on the roster at sophomore standing or younger.
The Mules, 2-6 last year, open the season at home Saturday at 1 p.m. against Trinity College. The game will be webcast at http://nsnsports.net/event/trinity-vs-colby-football/
Colby captains Gabe Harrington, Stephen O’Grady, and Ryan Ruiz will be key leaders. Harrington is a junior quarterback, while seniors O’Grady and Ruiz each play on defense.
Harrington will have some offensive firepower to work with this season. Juniors Jabari Hurdle-Price and Carl Lipani are proven running backs. Hurdle-Price averaged 4.1 yards per carry and ran for 533 yards on 131 rushes last year to lead Colby in rushing and finish fourth in the NESCAC in rushing yards per game (66.6). Lipani has 89 career rushes for the Mules and averages 5.1 yards per carry. He was rushing for 94 yards per game in the Mules’ opening two contests, but missed the rest of the season with an injury.
Hurdle-Price and Lipani are both capable of helping Harrington with catches out of the backfield. Hurdle-Price was fourth on the team in total catches (17) last year, while Lipani has 22 catches in 10 games. Dan Roache also had carries last year. Senior fullbacks Robert Murray and Billy Murphy will be key blockers and will get some carries.
Harrington saw limited time in his first year with the Mules and started from day one last season. He was fifth in the NESCAC in passing yards per game (177.9), fourth in total yards passing (1,423), and was third in touchdown passes (11). Harrington was not afraid to throw the ball down the field, with the Mules at nine players with catches of 19 yards or more.
Michael Ecke, Joseph Anile IV, Christian Sparacio, and Hunter Riehle were other quarterbacks on the roster last year.
While the Mules lost some key receivers to graduation, Harrington will have Ryder Arsenault returning. Arsenault led the Mules in total catches (25), was tied for the team lead in receiving touchdowns (4), and was second in receiving yards (263).
Mbasa Mayikana showed promise in his first year, ranking third on Colby in total catches (20) and fourth in receiving yards (193). Alex Kramer had nine catches a year ago, but averaged 13.1 yards per catch and had a touchdown. Senior tight end Glenn Parsons has 22 catches in the last two years and is averaging 12.6 yards per catch.
Mark Snyder and DeVaughn Riley also return at the receiver spot. Henry Holmes and Braden Wilson will see time at tight end.
The Mules lose three starters on the offensive line, but the program continues to develop terrific linemen. Colby has had at least one offensive lineman make the All-NESCAC team in the past six years.
Senior offensive tackle Jesse Eddy and senior guard Drew Choos both started a year ago. Michael Roberts, who played on defense last year, moves to the center spot. Andrew Ferraro and Larry Patrizio will be the new starters, but both are experienced players. Anthony Cappellino, William Julich, Alex Beach, Steven Zieselman, Joe Mariani, Corben Davis, and Luke Glynn-Ferrarone all return from last season on the offensive line.
The kicking chores will come from a new player after the graduation loss of Louw Scheepers. John Baron saw time at punter (2 punts, 35.5 average), and kicking off (5 kicks, 54.0 average).
The Mules lose two of four starters on the defensive line, but Colby had reserves earn key minutes a year ago. Ruiz was third on the Mules in tackles with 42 from his defensive end spot. Harry Nicholas is the other starter returning on the defensive line, finishing fifth on the team with 36 stops.
Colby did have depth on the line last year and will have some key returnees. Jac-Antoine Muntu-Caron, who led the team in sacks with three, will play at defensive end and Christopher Marano (8 tackles) is one of the biggest returning players on the team at 6-foot-5 and about 300 pounds. Henry Wallrapp, Ben Hartford (6 tackles), Sam Gomez, and Marcus John Jones also saw time last year.
Colby loses three key linebackers from a year ago, including middle linebacker Henry Nelson. He led the Mules in tackles in all four seasons. Tony Atkinson was second in tackles and Gabe Salzer was seventh, but both also graduated.
O’Grady, who missed time due to injury last year, will lead the linebackers. He had 19 tackles in just four games. Connor Rozinsky (8 tackles), Bryan McAdams (8 tackles), Connor Bruen (6 tackles), Ryan Neville (5 tackles), and Josh Levinger also return at linebacker.
The secondary was decimated by injuries last year, forcing wide receivers Luke Duncklee and Nick Joseph to see time in the defensive backfield. Colby also lost some productive seniors to graduation, including Buco (team-best six interception).
The injuries allowed junior Justin Lamere (24 tackles) and Ian Dickey (16 tackles) to get some valuable playing time. Lamere, who had three tackles for loss, saw time at strong safety. Dickey played at the free safety spot in his first year.
Adam Balaban, Clay Rowland, and Mike DiCosmo should also start or see added minutes in the defensive backfield.
The Mules also hope for contributions for a talented first-year class.
Colby’s success in 2015 will depend a lot on turning around problems in road contests. The Mules are 3-13 in away games in the last four years. Two of the three wins came against Hamilton, a team Colby visits this season. The Mules also play at rival Bowdoin, which the Mules have beaten in their last two home games (17-0 and 14-7). The loss during that time was a brutal setback on a Polar Bear Hail Mary pass in the final seconds of the game.
The Bantams took a 32-7 victory over Colby last year in Hartford. Trinity won 53 straight home games before losing its final two home games to Middlebury College and Amherst College.
The Bantams slipped slightly to 5-3 last year. Trinity has been a major power in New England Division III football for many years. The Bantams started last year at 5-0 before falling to Middlebury (27-7), Amherst (7-6), and Wesleyan (20-19) in the final three contests.
The Mules only trailed 9-7 at halftime of last year’s game at Trinity. Chudi Iregbulem ran for three touchdowns in the game and had 10 for the season, but he was lost to graduation. The Bantams also lost four of their top six tacklers from a year ago.
Senior quarterback Henry Foye threw for 996 yards and five touchdowns last season for Trinity. However, the Bantams were mostly a running team with 415 rushes compared to 173 pass attempts. Sophomore quarterback Spencer Aukamp ran for 264 yards.
Junior running back Gus Ackley (254 yards) and sophomore Ethan Suraci (187 yards) are top returning rushers.
The Bantams had five receivers with 137 yards or more and four of the five are returners. Junior Darrien Myers had a team-high 21 catches, while Ian Dugger finished with 222 yards receiving.
Trinity senior linebacker Frank Leyva is the top returning tackler with 41 stops, including 5.5 for loss. Senior defensive end Lyle Baker was fourth in tackles (38) and tied for first in tackles for loss (7).

Football opens season with setback

WATERVILLE, Maine — The Colby College football team opened the season in a tough way against a physical Trinity College squad in a 34-0 setback at Harold Alfond Stadium on Saturday.

Sonny Puzzo threw for 278 yards and Darrien Myers caught both of Puzzo’s touchdowns to lead the Bantams. Puzzo also had a 1-yard scoring run and gained 53 yards on seven carries for Trinity (1-0).
Trinity took the opening drive of the game 65 yards on just six plays, capped off by a 27-yard scoring catch from Puzzo to Myers for a 7-0 lead.
After a three-and-out by the Mules (0-1), Trinity went 81 yards on nine plays to score its second touchdown. Puzzo had a quarterback sneak with 6:38 to play in the opening quarter for a 14-0 margin.
The Bantams needed just one play to score on their next drive. Puzzo hit Myers on a 43-yard touchdown strike with 12:37 to go in the second quarter.
With 4:40 to halftime, Paul McCarthy stepped in front of a quick-out pass for the interception and was able to just get in the end zone while carrying a Colby tackler on his back for the last few yards. Trinity missed the extra point and led 27-0 at intermission.
Trinity spent a good portion of the second half running the ball to eat up time. The Bantams closed out the scoring when Max Chipouras ran in from 3 yards out with 5:49 to play.
The Bantams had a 439-159 edge in total offense. Nick Gaynor had 11 carries for 58 yards and caught two passes for 46 yards. Myers had five catches for 93 yards and teammate Bryan Vieira caught three passes for 86 yards.
Christian Sparacio ran seven times for 30 yards and also completed two passes for 10 yards. Gabe Harrington threw for 97 yards, while Ryder Arsenault had five catches for 24 yards.
McCarthy led the Trinity defense with two interceptions and five tackles. Shane Libby finished with six tackles and had 1.5 sacks, Dago Picon-Roura added an interception and tied with Spencer Donahue for the team lead in tackles with seven.
First-year safety Don Vivian had a solid debut for Colby with a fumble recovery, four tackles, and one pass break-up. Chris Marano, Ian Dickey, Ryan Ruiz, and Ryan Neville also had four tackles. Henry Wallrapp had a sack and three stops.
Colby punter John Baron started for the first time and finished five kicks for 47.0-yard average. He also had three of the five punts inside the 20-yard line.
Colby heads to Middlebury College next Saturday at 1 p.m., while Trinity has its home opener against Williams College at 1:30 p.m.

Football has moments in loss at Middlebury

MIDDLEBURY, Vt. — Colby College’s defense intercepted two passes and the Mules’ special teams had a safety and three blocked kicks in a 28-9 loss at Middlebury College on Saturday.

The Mules are 0-2 overall heading into next Saturday’s 1 p.m. road game at Wesleyan University (1-1). Middlebury opened the season with a win against Wesleyan and is 2-0 overall.

The Mules did bounce back somewhat from last Saturday’s opener loss to Trinity. Colby had 237 yards of total offense and did make plays on defense and special teams.

Colby’s defense allowed only 54 rushing yards on 35 carries and picked off Matt Milano twice. Milano is one of the top quarterbacks in the NESCAC.

The Panthers took a 2-0 lead when Nate Leedy blocked a punt out of the end zone for a team safety at 7:58 of the first quarter. The Panthers scored again on the ensuing kick as a Colby punt left them the ball at the 50. Milano hit tight end Trevor Miletich for 7 and 10 yards on the drive before a 10-yard connection to Ian Riley for the touchdown.

Tim Patricia picked off a pass on Colby’s ensuing drive, as the Panthers marched 73 yards on nine plays to take a 14-0 lead. Tanner Contois caught a 22-yard pass on the drive before Milano and Miletich connected in the corner of the end zone on a 6-yard strike.

In the second quarter, a booming 79-yard punt by Colby’s John Baron left Middlebury the ball on its own one-yard line. Baron just missed the Colby record of 81 yards set by Nathan Bradley against Wesleyan in 1997. Baron’s kick took a nice roll and hit the left pylon and went out of bounds.

Three plays later, the hosts were unable to get a punt away as Colby’s Justin Lamere pushed Panther punter Charlie Gordon out of the end zone for a safety.

Middlebury took a 21-2 lead after an 11-play, 87-yard drive that ended with a 10-yard touchdown pass from Jared Lebowitz to Ryan Rizzo. Lebowitz aided the drive with a 15-yard rush and a 39-yard strike to Conrado Banky. The touchdown at the 5:25 mark of the second quarter left the home team with a 21-2 advantage at the half.

Late in the third quarter, a bad snap on a punt left Middlebury the ball on the Colby 13. The Panthers drove to the two before a 20-yard field goal attempt from Gordon was blocked.

An interception by Middlebury’s Kevin Hopsicker with 7:38 remaining gave the Panthers the ball on their own 24-yard line. Six plays later, Milano lofted a beautiful pass over the head of the defender, finding Banky who raced down the sideline for a 60-yard touchdown reception and a 28-2 lead with 4:39 remaining.

Colby scored its only touchdown of the day on its final drive, moving the ball 74-yards on 11 plays in 4:01. Gabe Harrington hit Mark Snyder for 25 yards on the drive before Jabari Hurdle-Price scored from 2 yards out to make it a 28-9 final.



Harrington completed 17-of-36 passes for 142 yards. Hurdle-Price gained 66 yards on 20 carries with a touchdown, while Snyder finished with six receptions for 83 yards.

Connor Rozinsky led Colby’s defense with eight tackles. Don Vivian added seven tackles and two pass break-ups, while Stephen O’Grady had a sack among his seven tackles. Ryan Ruiz made six tackles and added a sack.

The Mules had interceptions from Ian Dickey and Harry Nicholas.

Hurdle-Price has big day in tough loss

MIDDLETOWN, Conn. — Jabari Hurdle-Price rushed for 202 yards and two touchdowns for the Colby College football team in a tough 24-21 loss at Wesleyan University on Saturday.

The Mules (0-3 overall) went up 21-17 when Hurdle-Price got to the right sideline and ran 65 yards for a touchdown with 4:09 left in the game.
The Cardinals (2-1 overall) did not panic despite needing a touchdown to go ahead. Wesleyan quarterback Gernard Hawkins had a key 31-yard run on the drive and connected with Devon Carrillo on a 35-yard touchdown pass for what proved to be the game-winning points with 2:32 remaining.
The Mules had a fine drive start on their own 40-yard line and got as far as the Cardinals’ 39-yard line before giving the ball over on downs.
Colby had the better of play in the opening half, but Wesleyan led 10-9 at the break.
Colby kicker John Baron booted a 30-yard field goal for the game’s first points. The Mules drove 69 yards on 10 plays on the drive.
Wesleyan went ahead 7-3 on a 70-yard drive, culminating in a 1-yard scoring run from Jaylen Berry with 24 seconds left in the first quarter.
The Mules went 12 plays and 62 yards on their next drive. However, Colby had to settle for a field goal attempt and then did not put any points on the scoreboard after a bad snap from center on the attempt.
The good news was that Wesleyan was pinned deep in its own territory. A penalty had the Cardinals on the 3-yard line when a bad center snap got away from Hawkins. After picking up the ball in the end zone, Hawkins threw an ill-advised pass that was picked off by first-year Patrick Yale at the 1-yard line and he stepped into the end zone for an easy Colby score. Baron’s extra point attempt banged off the right post.
Wesleyan used a 16-play, 71-yard drive in the final 5:08 of the half. Cardinal kicker Ike Fuchs hit a 27-yard field goal at the end of the quarter for a 10-9 Wesleyan lead.
Wesleyan went ahead 17-9 when Carrillo scored on a 9-yard run with 11:30 left in the fourth quarter. Colby had a devastating penalty on the drive after the defense stopped a 4th-and-2 at the Mules’ 27-yard line. The Mules, however, were called for a roughing the passer penalty and the Cardinals kept the ball.
Hurdle-Price carried the ball six times on Colby’s ensuing drive. He had a carry of 20 yards to get the ball to the Wesleyan 19-yard line. Hurdle-Price scored on a blast up the middle from 1 yard out. The Mules went for two points to try and tie the game, but a pass attempt was incomplete.
Colby quarterback Gabe Harrington threw for 125 yards and rushed for 29 yards. The Mules had a 374-371 edge in total yards.
Ian Dickey led the Mules defense with 12 tackles. Harry Nicholas and Stephen O’Grady did a great job stuffing the inside run and both finished with nine stops. Sam Friedman, Bryan McAdams, and Ryan Ruiz all had seven tackles.
Colby entertains NESCAC defending champion Amherst College next Saturday at 1 p.m.

Hurdle-Price earns honor from NESCAC

WATERVILLE, Maine — Colby College running back Jabari Hurdle-Price (Bronx, N.Y.), who ran for 202 yards against Wesleyan University, was named the New England Small College Athletic Conference Offensive Player of the Week on Sunday.

Hurdle-Price had his best collegiate game, rushing for 7.8 yards per carry. He had two touchdowns in the fourth quarter to put the Mules up 21-17 before the Cardinals pulled out a 24-21 win.
The second touchdown was a 65-yard score that took him down the right sideline in front of the Wesleyan bench. His 202 yards is the most rushing yards by a Mule in a single game since Aaron Stepka rushed for 210 yards against Hamilton College on Oct. 18, 2003. Colby’s all-time record is 247 yards by Brian Cooley against Bowdoin College in 1989.
In the latest NESCAC statistics, Hurdle-Price is second in the league in rushing yards per game (95.3) and first in all-purpose yards (159.3)

Football team to get mighty challenge

WATERVILLE, Maine — The Colby College football team will get the challenge of the season when defending New England Small College Athletic Conference champion Amherst College visits Seaverns Field at Harold Alfond Stadium on Saturday at 1 p.m.

The Lord Jeffs have won 14 straight games and are 32-3 over the past five seasons.
The game will be webcast at http://nsnsports.net/colleges/colby/
The Mules did have success against Amherst two years ago at Harold Alfond Stadium. The Lord Jeffs needed a late touchdown to pull out a 14-10 victory. Amherst lost the following week to Wesleyan University at home, but have not lost a game since.
Colby (0-3 overall) nearly pulled out a road win against Wesleyan last Saturday. The Mules led 21-17 after a 65-yard touchdown run by Jabari Hurdle-Price with 4:09 to play The Cardinals, though, came right back with a game-winning touchdown drive in a 24-21 final.
Hurdle-Price was the NESCAC Offensive Player of the Week after rushing for 202 yards against Wesleyan. He ranks first in the conference in all-purpose yards (159.3) and second in rushing yards per game (95.3). Hurdle-Price has 286 yards, averages 5.0 yards per carry, and has three touchdowns.
Junior quarterback Gabe Harrington has thrown for 364 yards, while Mark Snyder leads in receptions (9) and yards (105). Alex Kramer and Mbasa Mayikana both have seven catches.
Colby punter/kicker John Baron ranks third in the NESCAC in punting average (39.1) and is tied for first in punts inside the 20-yard line with eight.
Colby defensive back Ian Dickey leads in tackles with 20 and has one interception. Stephen O’Grady, a senior linebacker, has 17 tackles along with senior defensive end Ryan Ruiz.
The Mules rank sixth in the league in rushing offense (133.7) and sixth in rushing defense (136.0).
Amherst ranks first in the conference in scoring offense (32.7) and second in scoring defense (9.0). The Lord Jeffs also rank first in rushing offense at 277.3 yards per game.
Lord Jeff quarterback Reece Foy is first in the league in total offense (291.0), second in passing yards per game (243.3), and 10th in rushing (47.7).
Amherst has two other players in the top 10 in rushing. Kenny Adinkra is third at 78.8 and Jack Hickey ranks fourth at 70.0. Meanwhile, Devin Boehm is second in the conference in receptions per game (6.7) and fourth in receiving yards (81.7).
The Lord Jeffs are traditionally a good defensive team and this year is no exception. Junior linebacker Evan Boynton has a team-best 24 tackles and ranks second in the conference in sacks (3.5). Boynton was the NESCAC Defensive Player of the Week on Monday. Senior defensive backs Jimmy Fairfield-Sonn (17 tackles) and Chris Gow (15 tackles) are other leaders.
Amherst is one of three unbeaten teams in the league after three weeks. Tufts University and Trinity College are the other 3-0 teams, and the Jumbos host the Bantams on Saturday. In other NESCAC action, Bates plays at Wesleyan; Hamilton visits Bowdoin; and Williams is at Middlebury.
The Mules get the long trip to Hamilton College next Saturday for a noon start.Three of Colby’s final four games are against teams (Hamilton, Bates, Bowdoin) with 0-3 records.
