Husson football opens up camp, expectations high for 2017 season

..."We have a lot of veterans. We have high expectations for them. Looks like a great young crew that we've recruited that have come here. So really we're looking for some depth and we're excited for the expectations," Price said.

Three of those veterans are crucial. John Smith, Luke Washburn and DJ Allen have all been named captains. Smith and Washburn are defending ECFC Offensive and Defensive Players of Year respectively. Allen was a member of the ECFC first team.

"It's great knowing that all these guys have the confidence in me to lead the team on the field. You know they're going to be looking to me on the field for questions and what not. I think that's something that I really take pride," Allen said.

NESCAC Conference News ::

Trinity Football Excited To Defend NESCAC Title In 2017

Hartford, Conn. - The Trinity College football team, coached by Jeff Devanney (12th Season), captured its ninth New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) title in dominant fashion last fall, clinching the title in the seventh game of the season with a 24-14 win against Amherst and finishing with a 45-21 victory at Wesleyan to go 8-0 for the seventh time and the sixth season since 2003. The Bantams won six games by at least 24 points, scored at least 36 points in seven of eight games, and extended winning streaks of 18 games or more against Bates, Hamilton, and Bowdoin. Trinity returns 58 letterwinners and 12 starters from last year's squad, led by All-NESCAC senior tri-captains Liam Kenneally (Reading, Mass.), Sonny Puzzo (West Caldwell, N.J.), and Chris Simmons (Manchester, Conn.) in 2017. Seven players who earned All-NESCAC honors in 2016 will grace the roster this autumn, and an abundance of talent on both sides of the ball and on special teams return.

The Bantams have once again set themselves up for a run at an undefeated campaign, but it will require an extra effort as the NESCAC has added a ninth game to the league schedule for the first time in conference history. Trinity, ranked No. 2 in New England in 2016, will play five times at home this fall, including a chance at its 21st-consecutive, season-opening win on September 16 against Colby. An undefeated season has been necessary to win the NESCAC title in 13 of the last 16 years.Puzzo is one of the most dynamic offensive players in the Northeast, having won the NESCAC Rookie of the Year award and a Boston Globe Gold Helmet Award, and having collected All-NESCAC First Team honors in 2016. Puzzo, a dual threat, totaled 1,778 yards in a total offense while completing 60.1 percent of his passes for 16 touchdowns and a QB rating of 153.1 last year. Junior David Ryan (Woodbridge, Conn.) has developed into a quality backup under center. Trinity looks to continue its lethal efficiency in the red zone after scoring 91.4 percent of the time last fall.

Junior RB Max Chipouras (Longmeadow, Mass.) was the 2015 NESCAC Offensive Rookie of the Year and added All-NESCAC First Team honors in the Trinity offensive backfield last fall. He gained 910 rushing yards and averaged 5.8 yards per carry with eight touchdowns in 2016. Fellow junior Lucas Golon (Carle Place, N.Y.), who added 313 yards on the ground last season, and sophomore Shelby Grant (Darien, Conn.) are both exciting tailback options, while versatile senior Ethan Suraci (North Haven, Conn.) can fill in at either fullback or tailback.

‘Southern Maine’s team’ UNE

UNE football program set for historic first season

BIDDEFORD — From the moment Mike Lichten was named the first-ever football coach at the University of New England he talked about turning the Nor’easters into southern Maine’s football team.

“Local ties are essential. This is southern Maine’s team. This is going to be tied into that community and they are going to support us, I hope, and we are going to support them. The way you start doing that is by building individual relationships,” Lichten said during his introductory press conference back in February of 2016.

Lichten went right to work after being hired by UNE and has a large group of former Maine high school standouts on the roster. Local football fans will recognize a lot of names including former Biddeford Tigers Joey Curit, Patrick Pearl, Austin Dutremble and Trevor Therrien, Kennebunk’s Pat Saunders, Thornton Academy’s Cam Cadorette and Wells’ Owen Berry.

“In the recruiting process we talked about keeping the best players in Maine in the state and I think we did a really good job of that,” Lichten told the Journal Tribune during UNE’s Media Day on Thursday. “This group has been attentive. They have shown great leadership qualities. They are good football players, they are better students and they are of high moral character and that’s everything we look for in recruiting.”
