Former Thornton QB likely to miss another football season at UMaine
Michael Laverriere, the 2016 Fitzpatrick Trophy winner, recently had surgery on his left shoulder – less than a year after surgery on his right shoulder.

...Laverriere was redshirted last fall in his freshman season after he had surgery on his right shoulder last July.

He had been projected to be a fullback for the Black Bears and was progressing nicely through the team’s winter workouts. But Laverriere was injured while working out with quarterbacks, according to Coach Joe Harasymiak.

“He dove to catch a pass and landed on his shoulder,” said Harasymiak.

Laverriere attended the opening of Maine’s spring football practices on Wednesday with his left arm in a sling. He said that he suffered a torn labrum and had surgery last Thursday.

Spring practice time to seize opportunities for Maine football

..."We have about, I think it's 15 to 20 guys, that didn't really play last year," head coach Joe Harasymiak said Thursday. "Whether they were red-shirted, they got hurt. So that group of guys, this is their opportunity to come out here and practice. A lot of those guys were just scout team, they didn't really get to take reps. So new faces in new positions."

Harasymiak noted he was impressed with the work ethic he's seen thus far, but added it is still early before the annual spring game May 4.

Have no idea how valid this is but someone on AGS has Josh Mack transferring to Liberty. Sort of ironic as we travel to Liberty in 2019. ;)

His transfer release should have stipulated that he could not transfer to FBS schools on Maine's schedule for the next 2 years. Duh! :oops: :roll:

Well, it's official...I guess Mack landed pretty darn well after all at Liberty University. I don't understand how the school allowed him to transfer to an opposing school in 2019. Kid's gonna have a hard on and vengence for us, I wonder if Coach H will keep this game on the schedule? I'm sure its gonna be a good payday for UMaine...

For Maine football recruits, redshirt season is an important year for development
The first-year players learn to adjust to not only college football, but college life in general.

...There are 10 players from Maine high schools participating in spring football. Some, like redshirt junior running back Joe Fitzpatrick of North Yarmouth (Cheverus High), redshirt sophomore Owen Elliott of Saco (Thornton Academy) and senior kicker Patrick Leonard of Lowell (John Bapst) have established roles.

Others, like Smith, redshirt freshman defensive lineman Raffaele Salamone of Portland (Deering) and redshirt freshman wide receiver Damon Osmond of Bath (Morse) are looking to make an impression on the Black Bears’ coaching staff that could lead not only to playing time, but increased scholarship money.

Like most freshmen coming in, the Maine recruits went through a redshirt season, where the athletes practice with the team but don’t play in any games. That way, they can adjust not only to college life on the football field, but in all aspects of their lives.

“That’s the path for most of the Maine guys,” said Coach Joe Harasymiak. “Even Trevor Bates. He came in on a partial scholarship and earned himself a spot to play in the NFL. You’ve got to earn your stripes and go from there.”
