COLLEGE FOOTBALL NOTES from luncheon:

... Bates coach Mark Harriman is looking forward to seeing how his defense plays this season.

“We return almost everybody. I’m excited at where we’ll be. We always try to hang our hat on defense,” Harriman said.

One of those key returning Bobcats is senior linebacker Mark Upton. A first team all-NESCAC player last season, Upton was second in the conference in tackles, with 71.

“He’s probably the best overall football player we have,” Harriman said.

The Bobcats open the season on Sept. 24 at Trinity

Old Town’s Miller To Play Football At Husson

Old Town HS standout receiver Andre Miller is taking his football talents to Husson University this fall and will play for the Eagles.

The 6-foot-3 Miller caught 21 touchdowns for the Coyotes last fall and helped Old Town to an undefeated regular season and a playoff run to the Class C regional final. He was named 1st team all conference as both a receiver and defensive back.

In July, Miller caught four TDs and was named game MVP in the annual Shriner’s Lobster Bowl East-West All Star game.
