COLBY: NESCAC FOOTBALL MOVES TO NINE-GAME SCHEDULE

WATERVILLE, Maine -- Colby College will play all the New England Small College Athletic Conference football opponents after round-robin scheduling was approved by the conference presidents for the 2017 season.

While the league has 10 teams playing football, only eight games were played each season and each team was allowed a scrimmage. The scrimmage, played a week before the regular season began, will no longer take place and nine games will now be played.

Colby's first game will take place Saturday, Sept. 16, at defending NESCAC champion Trinity College. The Mules will play five away games and four home contests in the upcoming season. Three of the opening four games will be away from Seaverns Field at Harold Alfond Stadium.

"Moving to full round robin alleviates the difficulty institutions encountered trying to schedule scrimmages due to our later start date," said Andrea Savage, the NESCAC Executive Director. "Additionally, reducing the number of contact practices supports our continuing efforts on enhancing health and safety."

The change to nine games results in fewer live contact practices for teams. The NESCAC head football coaches fully supported the change and reduction in contact practices. The coaches also unanimously agreed to continue their current practice of players not engaging in live tackling during practice once in-season.

In past years, the Mules did not play either Trinity or Williams College every two years. The Mules were originally scheduled to not play Trinity in 2017.

2017 Colby Football Schedule
Saturday, Sept. 16, at Trinity
Saturday, Sept. 23, Williams
Saturday, Sept. 30 at Middlebury
Saturday, Oct. 7 at Wesleyan
Saturday, Oct. 14 Amherst

Two local players heading to Division-III football programs

... Skowhegan quarterback Garrett McSweeney and Brewer running back Garrett Ireland are headed to play at the Division-III level.

Ireland is staying right here at home, playing at Maine Maritime Academy in Castine.

McSweeney is headed to play for Plymouth State in New Hampshire, which is also the alma mater of his Skowhegan head coach Matthew Friedman. He earned a spot on the All-USA Maine second team after his senior season, and added a nod as a Fitzpatrick Award semifinalist as well.

Familiar faces headline UNE football recruits

... “We wanted to make sure that the best players in the state of Maine were on our recruiting board when we began this recruiting cycle last year. I am thrilled about those who will be a part of our inaugural class,” said UNE football head coach Mike Lichten. “They are young men of the highest moral character and integrity as well as tremendous athletes and competitors. The group from Maine has size, speed and they all play the game the right way. I see them melding together well with the rest of the members of our roster for 2017.”

Some of those players include guys like Biddeford quarterback Joey Curit, as well as Biddeford receiver and cornerback Pat Pearl.

Next door neighbor Cam Cadorette will be representing Thornton Academy at UNE, while Kennebunk running back Pat Saunders and Wells quarterback Owen Berry also made the list.
