2018 Lehigh Football Spring Preview: The Offense

2018 Lehigh Football Spring Preview: The Offense

Lehigh had one of the best offenses statistically in all of the FCS last year, excelling offensively in pretty much every facet.

Look at the statistics page for FCS last year.

Rising senior QB Brad Mayes, 4th in passing yardage.  Rising senior RB Dominick Bragalone, 1st in rushing yardage with 1,388.

Both Mayes and Brags return next year, and huge things will be expected of them for certain.

But the spring is about finding out who’s stepping up to the plate to keep the train rolling.

There’s little doubt that, barring injury, Mayes and Bragalone will be lining up in that first offensive possession vs. St. Francis (PA) at Murray Goodman this September.  But the 2017 offense is so much more than those two guys – the Mountain Hawks will need to replace the best receiving tandem ever to suit up at Lehigh, and will also need to replace the fiery leadership on the offensive line that, at times, seemed to will this team to their Patriot League Championship last year.

This Saturday, we get our first peek.

Game Preview, Lehigh at Bucknell, 10/10/2015

Game Preview, Lehigh at Bucknell, 10/10/2015

The buzz went through the press box in the minutes before last year’s game versus Bucknell that QB R.J. Nitti, the starter for the 4-1 Bison, was not suiting up at quarterback.

Almost immediately, the mood of the Lehigh folks covering the game picked up.

Without Nitti, it would mean little-used QB Trey Lauletta would be the starter in his place.  That, along with the injury to the regular starting RB C.J. Williams, what seemed originally like a close matchup between two close teams felt like a very good shot at a win for the winless Mountain Hawks and might actually get Lehigh’s season pointed in the right direction.

 It didn’t work out that way.

After jumping out to a 7-0 lead, Bucknell would ride a record-setting performance by WR Will Carter, who would get 3 big-play touchdowns during a stretch of 31 straight Bison points to power through to a 45-24 win over Lehigh and effectively ending any dreams of competing for the Patriot League title.

For the last two seasons, the quest for Lehigh’s Patriot League title hopes have gone through a game versus Bucknell. This year is no different.  The road to any sort of Patriot League title hopes for the Mountain Hawks start this weekend in Lewisburg.
