    Some good news. No losses and Wilmington got his 5th year. A definite plus for D.

    Last season we talked about the need to get bigger. I really just took a cursory look but here are some noticeable changes (if everything I read is accurate)

    I was told Q. Jones is moving from DB to safety. He put on 20 pounds to do it. (190 from 170). Most of the DBs put on about 10 lbs.
    As noted earlier Cavenas is now at 295# but more astonishingly was TJ Stubbs going from 230# to 270#. I hope it’s all muscle. Suddenly we become much more stout in the middle.
    Our OL will be huge next year. I hope that they will also be mobile. Duffy is upt to 325#, James Camasta and Kadeem Smith are all 320#. Tennant is 310# with a few 290#ers thrown in. At 280#, Short is our lightest OL.
    LB is still a concern to me from a size standpoint. Most of our anticipated starters are still in the 210# area. Ripanti up to 225#. BTW, I may have missed him but I didn’t see Mat Verdon on the roster. I thought he was a junior last year and started a few games at OLB.

    Andy said it would be a priority for bigger and less injury prone. Eric doing hands on training now full time. TJ closer to 280 now working with a trainer .
    Verdon left early. He has bigger priorities now,his girlfriend expecting.
    Huge :).OL heftier. Zsuspect some of that is 2nd semestet wght.August will be intense. Particularly on D.

    Probably at FS. With new D scheme,he may not but h will be in the rotation without doubt.

    All the rehabs should,I hope,be ready for camp. Should have a full rostet. Keeping fingers crossed that we come out with one . O pretty wrll set,just needs reps. D will be a fierce battle for spots combined with everyone learning a new D. From what I’ve read on 3-3-5, it is an attacking D with less pressure on players reading and reacting. In other words simpler.

    Yea it is but it puts pressure on the DBs to make tackles in the box… Gotta have 2 undersized LB that can play safety to execute the defense, if that is what we have we should be good, I’m counting 7 to 9 DBs thats including a few Freshman that hopefully will compete and be at least ready for Dime packages..

    3-3-5.very flexible. Standard personnel ,one of the 5 us a rover. Can either be a DB or an OLB. Crucial cog in this scheme. Run support,blitzer,cover DB. Guessing Harvey ,Barrett and Lambert fit here. Lots of bodies moving around. Robb,Ripanti and Caslow LBs. Laub??

    Yea gonna need Bodies and a relentless DB that cover I mean flat out cover and a serious Blitzing DB. I believe LSU played that defense with honey badger because had to get him on the field…. he was not a true COVER corner.

    Just an interesting note. Nice aricle on site about LUMBB. Mentions that many players taking summer classes to lighten load but also to work with Eric and get individual skills coaching. Andy is also doing the same.

    I’ve also gotten some positive feedback on Julie Sterrett Ammary’s sports leadership initiative. I think it was an area that needed improvement in several sports.

    Creative. Like the concept. What is she focusing on?

    Instead of reading about it, I’ll let Julie explain it to you :-)

    I discussed it briefly with Nate Brown who had high praise for it. Softball found a lot of value in it. Field hockey spent time with it this spring.
