Colby Football:
Quote
I had the Nobile brothers as 8th graders in an unlimited weight organization I ran. They were simply dominate kids, both physically and mentally tough. And they are two great kids. I expected them to be big impact players this year, but I didn't expect this much of an impact.

I had been meaning to bring back the quote that you posted in August when you said these guys would be good. Seemed like an unusual note from someone affiliated with Colby. When I was at Trinity, I had never heard of Delaware Valley College/University.

Quote
Two players to watch on Del Val are the Nobile twins, Anthony and Michael. You are going to love what those two bring to the football field.

You get the award for best prediction of the year. :)

Hello Mac Folks,

I was filling out my bracket challenge and noticed despite being ranked 10 spots higher in the top 25, the d3fb pundits unanimously picked Muhlenberg to win against the Aggies tomorrow. Did a key Del Valley player get hurt or something?

I would suggest the likely reason would be more so Muhlenburg's performance against better competition this season in the Centennial than anything else.

Friday Fact of the Week

Fact:

Projected 2019 All-MAC Returners
- Del Val 10
- Albright 0
- Widener 6
- Stevenson 6
- Lycoming 2
- Leb Val 2
- Wilkes 2
- King’s 3
- Misericordia 8
- FDU 0
- Alvernia 1

Reaction:

Del Val I'd expect to enter 2019 as the preseason favorite again with 10 returning All-MAC players, but Misericordia is a wildcard with a presumed easier conference schedule again. Stevenson I'd expect to be a dark horse between both teams with the talent to grab the championship. I think Wilkes could create serious noise after proving what they can do this season. The rest of the conference will be fun to monitor.
Go Mustangs!

Thanks for the conversations guys... my boy's squad gave up a good one today. This last one was bitter sweet for me because 16 years of football appears to have come to an end for this football dad.  Be on the lookout for a bigger and better  Aggies team next year.  Enjoy your Thanksgiving everyone!

Couldn't agree more Graham 8020!   The Aggies gave us a reason to smile every Saturday in Sept., Oct. and those first two Saturdays of this month!   Congratulations TEAM & Coaches on a great season!!!

Mr. Graham:

Glad your son could get one more touchdown and do it in the NCAA playoffs. Congrats to him and your family on his football career.

Some interesting news in the MAC coaching world today, as former Wilkes HC Frank Sheptock is stepping down as athletic director and head football coach at Berwick High School to take a full-time assistant coaching position with...the King's College Monarchs. 

https://www.citizensvoice.com/sports/sheptock-steps-down-as-berwick-head-coach-1.2453254

As many of you may know, Coach Sheptock hired me just before I started classes at Wilkes as a freshman to a work-study job as the team's video specialist. It was one of the most positive and important developments in my life, as I had more fun and grew more as a person during the next four seasons that I could ever have imagined. Coach Shep was always firm and tough, but also empowered everyone in the program to reach his fullest potential. He has a place in my life as being one of the most influential people I know outside of my family; many of my subsequent successes in life can be traced to things I learned and developed working with the Colonels.

Congrats to Coach Shep on a new opportunity; the Monarchs are getting a first-class coach and leader, although it will be crazy to see him prowling the sidelines of the MAC clad in red and gold!

I read this news last week and I'm not surprised as he was a rising coach destine for either a head coaching gig or a D1 job. I'm glad for him and expect him to continue his ascend! I'll be following closely to see who is selected to replace him.
Go Mustangs!
