LFN Lunchtime Reading, 5/21/2015

I’m thinking about starting something daily during the work week – a section of five lunchtime reading links I found interesting.

Most times these will involve the Patriot League, FCS football, college football, or something else that I find interesting or amusing.

Let’s get right to it: Your LFN lunchtime reading for today.

I’ve been slack in getting this going this preseason, but the only possible word that can perfectly summarize this Lehigh football offseason is “pro“.

The NCAA’s big ad campaign for years now has been that “most athletes go ‘pro’ in something other than sports”.  And for the great majority of Lehigh athletes, year-in and year-out, this is still true.

But this offseason we’ve seen an unprecedented number of Lehigh athletes trying their hand at ‘pro’ ball – and Lehigh fans everywhere couldn’t be more thrilled or excited.  There are a lot of “pro” adventures to follow for Lehigh fans right now, and it’s damned exciting stuff.
