Games like this are won in the trenches and Lehigh has excelled there this season. Lehigh has some outstanding players in the skill positions, but the OL and front seven on defense have also been a major factor in this season’s success.
With our vertical passing game not at the same unbelievable level of earlier in the season, the OL, without a NFL draft pick, has come through with a strong running game the last two weeks. On the other side of the ball, Lehigh is holding its opponents to less than 100 yards rushing per game. Mike Groome is a great team leader on defense and his play has been the equal of some other great Lehigh linebackers, such as Eason, Young, Cohen, etc.
