Healing up

Most of the news on the injury front is promising.

Although junior running back will miss his fourth straight game with a hamstring injury. But it is looking like senior defensive end Brady Hart, who missed the last two games with a sprained knee and ankle, could be cleared to play. Senior receiver Jarrett Drake, who was held out of last week's Dartmouth game with a concussion, is also making progress and could be cleared. Senior defensive back and special teams star Brian Stephenson is back at practice and will play. That is key for the Bulldogs since Fordham is ranked in the top 15 in Football Championship Subdivision in punt returns and kickoff returns. Senior cornerback Casey Gerald has been bothered by a hip injury and he is questionable.

The game will be a reunion between the two coaches. When Fordham coach Tom Masella was a defensive back at Wagner in the early 80s, one of the team's assistant coaches was Jack Siedlecki.

"Tom was a great kid, he played corner for us,". "One of the toughest kids I have ever been around, just loved the game. Tommy became a New York City fireman after he graduated. Dennis Barrett took the King's Point job and hired Tommy as an assistant. He coached there a couple of years and kind of got the bug. Then Dennis hired him full time. He is a good friend. He and I played golf here two summers ago. He is a guy I have stayed in contact with, he has worked with some of my good friends over the years. he has done a great job every place he has been."
