As a proud Alumnus of Salisbury University, the "Regents Cup" game between two outstanding Universities from the state of Maryland, Salisbury University & Frostburg State has always been intense, regardless of the score or outcomes. I had the opportunity of playing in four games. I recorded my first collegiate interception against FSU my freshmen year and my last collegiate interception my senior year. This game has always had that big rivalry atmosphere and on many occasions had some type of playoff implication, either as a playoff berth or playoff seed. I can recall my coach telling me during my sophomore season when we were playoff bound, do not overlook Frostburg (it is a rivalry game for goodness sake), they have kept us from reaching the playoffs before (e.g. 2003) and prevented us from having a home playoff game (e.g. 2002). Each school basically recruits the same players; especially from the DMV area, each recruit basically decides either to go west into the cold mountains of western Maryland or go east to the beaches of the eastern shore of Maryland (I chose the ladder). Nevertheless, I am proud of each University and their perspective programs and only wish the best for each team this upcoming Saturday. I will be watching via internet. Above all the hype and intensity of the game and my obsession of bleeding "Maroon & Gold," my prayers go out to the Frostburg nation and the Family & Friends of Derek Sheely, who tragically lost his life early in the season due to head trauma. God Bless!
