F&M's Okolie has a torn ACL so that is a big loss for them.  Despite that, I still expect F&M to win the Centennial this year

Injuries are bound to occur, but with all the effort and passion these guys put out there,  it is so unfortunate to see any of these student athletes go down with season ending injuries...I hope he recovers well.
Tough loss for F&M , indeed.

He is arguably the best player in the region so this is a very tough loss for F&M. With that being said they have many talented players and should be able to handle this blow.

Dickinson, Gettysburg, and the Muhles all off to hot starts while F&M, Swat, and Wash Coll. all struggle out of the gate.
