A change of plan: DSU football alum Chapman carries college success into the weight room

..."If it wasn't for the connections I made at DSU, the coaches, all the way through down to the players, I wouldn't be in New Hampshire right now," Chapman said. "I'd be back in Canada chasing killer whales."

At the University of New Hampshire, Chapman, 52, is the director of strength and conditioning. He is in charge of overseeing all 18 athletic teams and 600 athletes at the northeast school, a task as daunting as chasing whales. Although he has five assistants, Chapman doesn't spend his days behind a desk overseeing operations.

"I work directly with football and men's hockey," the said. "So I'm at all their games, their practices, do all their workouts, and then the other five guys do the other teams and they implement the programs I have for all those teams."

UNH Football Media Day: New leaders to emerge

DURHAM — After four years of biding his time, senior Jake Kennedy finally gets a chance to start full-time.

The former Souhegan High School standout is at the center of a rebuild as the University of New Hampshire football team returns just two starters on the offensive line.

That figures to be a top priority during preseason camp, which opened this week.

“Jake Kennedy’s a good football player,” head coach Sean McDonnell said Thursday afternoon during media day. “He’s always had two or three good football players ahead of him. ... Unfortunately for Jake, he’s never gotten a chance, but we’ve had guys step up in the past and play for us. He’s got all the tools to do it.”

Wildcat Stadium Will Show Off New Turf Come Football Season

Video timelapse: Wildcat Stadium Turf Installation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z4U-0I5YocI

DURHAM, N.H. – Last year, the University of New Hampshire department of athletics opened Wildcat Stadium - home to one of the most successful football teams in the nation - to rave reviews.

The facility, designed with the region's fans in mind, was packed with amenities to enhance the spectator experience.

Now, UNH is breaking out a featured addition to the facility: a new, innovative and top-of-the-line synthetic playing surface that is a major upgrade on the previous surface.

A new turf was needed to replace the previous one that had been in place for the anticipated lifespan (nearly a decade) and had become worn, tired and compacted. Safety was a primary focus as well.

The Sean McDonnell-coached New Hampshire football team opens the 2017 season with a "Thursday Night Throwdown" game against Maine on Aug. 31 at 7 p.m.

Tickets for the UNH-Maine game and other games and season tickets for UNH football are available at www.unhwildcats.com or by calling 603-862-4000.

In addition to football, UNH men's soccer games will be played this fall in Wildcat Stadium with the switch to the new surface. The UNH lacrosse team played its games in the Stadium last season and will next year as well.

"We're going to have colored end zones this time," said director of athletics Marty Scarano. "We have a different, larger logo. Everything's sewn in. Of interest, due to our television production it's going to be a low luster kind of turf that doesn't have glare at night for night games, so it's going to look spectacular. It's going to bring the whole stadium together."

The new turf is the latest innovation of the firm Shaw Sports Turf and is called Spike Zone Pro System and is designed to excel in performance characteristics, including ball roll and ball rebound, while mirroring the aesthetics of natural grass and minimizing fraying and splitting.

"Shaw has one of the premier turf products and after reference-checking with schools that already had this product, we were convinced that it would be an excellent choice for us," said deputy athletic director Steve Metcalf.

Some 3,500 graduates and nearly 20,000 guests attended UNH's graduation in Wildcat Stadium on May 20. Work began on the turf project two days later and is due to be completed by Aug. 11.

The UNH football team has qualified for the NCAA Division I FCS tournament in each of the last 13 seasons, which is the longest streak in the nation.

"Between the new turf with the colored end zones and the low luster finish and the video board in the stadium, I'd arguably say it's one of the very best FCS venues in the nation," Scarano said. "We fully anticipate this turf is going to be a really fabulous surface for the better part of a decade or more and that it's going to open up opportunities for different types of events in there, for example, more NHIAA championships. We're always looking to actively partner with the NHIAA on championship opportunities and that surface along with that stadium is going to be as fine a venue as there is in the state of NH right now."

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.
