Let's use this thread to post news on Mainers playing football during the upcoming 2017 season ....

Captains eager to lead Husson football
Luke Washburn, DJ Allen to play prominent roles for Eagles this season.

...A Skowhegan native, Allen is one of Husson’s three captains this season. Senior defensive end Luke Washburn, of Litchfield, also is a captain, giving Husson’s senior leadership a distinct central Maine look this season. Senior running back John Smith, of Fayetteville, Georgia, also is an Eagle captain.

“I’ve been calling the guys this summer, making sure everybody is ready,” Washburn said. “I can’t wait to give everybody a hug, then get to work.”

Husson opens the season Sept. 2 at home against Union College. The Eagles went 9-2 last season, and their average margin of victory in ECFC games was just over 28 points. Husson’s closest conference game was a 27-13 win over Norwich, but this season the Cadets have moved on to the New England Women’s and Men’s Conference. ... -football/

York’s Goodrich’s role to expand for UNH

...Two weeks earlier, the team’s dynamic at running back shifted perceptibly when Bryant, groomed to be the top back after rushing for nearly 500 yards a year ago in a supplementary role, suffered a knee injury that would wipe out his whole season.

That put Goodrich, who’s got 36 games under his belt at UNH and contributed in a variety of ways, in a position to carry the ball a lot more, along with sophomore Evan Gray, senior Jerickson Fedrick and redshirt freshman DeUnte Chatman.

“We’ve got some talent at the running back position,” maintained UNH coach Sean McDonnell. “Goodrich has the talent that he’s always had and he’s improved. ... We’re going to go by committee to see who’s going to tote the ball for us. Maybe all of them.”

The 5-foot-10, 200-pound Goodrich, who played his high school ball at Cheverus, winning the Fitzpatrick Trophy in 2012, can handle the ball. He’s rushed 82 times in his career for 345 yards and caught 13 passes out of the backfield for 126 yards. ... nd-for-unh

Lawrence HS's Spencer Carey is hoping to have memorable senior year for UMaine football team

...The fifth-year senior will be playing his third position for the Black Bears as he makes the transition from safety to wide receiver to outside linebacker.

He will also be on all four special teams — kickoff, kickoff return, punt, punt return — and is the holder for the field goal unit. He can also be used as a long snapper.

“You need those guys in your program. There’s no doubt he’s got tremendous value for us,” said Black Bear second-year head coach Joe Harasymiak during Tuesday morning media day at Morse Field in Alfond Stadium. “He can play a lot of positions. We’ve moved him around to give him the best opportunity to get on the field. He will be on all of our special teams.

“He broke his hand last year and that hurt our special teams a little bit,’ added Harasymiak.

Harasymiak said Carey has “great hands” which makes him a natural to hold for field goals and extra points. ... ball-team/

Healthy Spencer Carey ready for final football season at UMaine
Lawrence graduate to anchor special teams unit, will also play linebacker for Black Bears.

...Carey and the Black Bears open the season Aug. 31 at rival University of New Hampshire. If everything goes right during training camp, Carey will be on the field for most, if not all, Maine’s special teams situations. He’ll also play a new position on defense. After seeing time at wide receiver and safety earlier his career, the 6-foot-2, 216-pound Carey is now an outside linebacker, the rover in Maine’s defense.

“Just reading the linemen. It happens a little bit faster than reading wide receivers, as safeties do. Luckily I was able to get used to it in the spring. The transition’s pretty good,” Carey said of his new position.

Last season, Carey was all set to become a mainstay with the Black Bears special teams units, before a broken hand early in the season derailed everything. Carey finished 2016 with one tackle, after making 22 as a sophomore the previous season. ... at-umaine/

Jacob Williams adapts to new role with UMaine football team

... “Third year here, third different position,” Williams said during Tuesday’s team media day activities.

Williams, a Mt. Blue High School graduate, is playing tight end/H-back for the Black Bears. Last season, the 6-foot, 210-pound Williams was a running back. In 2015, Williams spent a redshirt season practicing at linebacker for the Black Bears.

“He’s a strong kid, so we’ve got to figure out how to get him into a spot where he can compete on special teams. That’s the majority of his role this year,” Maine head coach Joe Harasymiak said of how he expects to use Williams this season. “For him, it’s just about competing on special teams right now.” ... ack-bears/
