My daughter is a senior at Calvin.  During her freshman orientation the college proudly proclaimed that they were "unbeaten all time" in football.  Why put on the pads and risk erasing such a splendid record?

As both a fan of (American) football... I can't help wondering what Calvin is deterred by.
What would be the upside of adding it in 2017?

Enrollment would get a bump–but for how long? Fewer and fewer players at the youth level means fewer enrollees down the road.

I thought they were "winless all time," still in search of their first victory.

By the way, has anyone noticed the job that former EGR coach Peter Stuursma is doing with the Hope football team; last Saturday his team trounced Olivet, last year's MIAA champ, 42 - 20, after leading 35 - 0 at halftime.  The team is now 3 - 1 on the year, losing only their first game by seven points.  Last year, his first as coach, resulted in a second place finish.

Less than one week to start of practice.  Should be a interesting season, Olivet looks very athletic by their twitter pics.  I expect this board to heat up sometime next week.

Is athleticism evident in a photo? I suppose a picture snapped at the apex of a vertical jump would be an indication, but doesn't really strike me as an identifiable attribute through a picture.

Yes they look athletic and by their twitter pics, they are suggesting they are athletic.  They have one with a player looking to do a windmill dunk and the homecoming one that says "speed kills" directed toward Hope and probably the rest of the miaa.    Another one talking about welcoming Jalen Adams as a High Flyer.  I don't olivet is going to walk the ball down the court!

Hope started/starts practice today. 

Players who can return and to my knowledge have:

Dante Hawkins Sr.
Luke Dreyer  Sr.
Jason Beckman  Sr.(Jr.?)  --dnp last season

Teddy Ray  Jr.
Jeff Goral  Jr.
Robert McGivney Jr.
Dennis Towns  Jr.

Riley Lewis So.


At least 7 open roster spots for last years JV guys and Fr.   I was pretty unfamiliar with last years JV so I'm willing to listen to potential JV guys, Matt Zandstra, Ben Ritsema, Jack Thompson ??

As for Freshman, I believe Hope has 24 this year but making a good assessment of their talents and who is varsity ready is really tricky.  For the first time that I can remember Hope has more out of state Fr. than instate.  By my count 13 with 7 states represented. 

Given the current roster makeup I might expect to see Preston Granger 6-6 F from Lansing Christian and maybe Ryan Gamm 6-8 C from Rockford.  After that its really kind of a guess.

Refresh my memory, was Riley Lewis injured last year and granted a medical redshirt or is listing him as a freshman again just a mistype?
