A little scouting

Two of Yale's non-conference opponents will open up on Saturday.

On Saturday at 12:30 p.m. Lehigh will host Central Connecticut State while Georgetown will play at Holy Cross

Lafayette, the third non-conference opponent on Yale's schedule, will kick off the 2009 season on Sept. 12 when the Leopards play at Georgetown.

Speaking of Georgetown, which will host Yale on Sept. 19 in the first game of the Tom Williams era with the Bulldogs, I glanced at their roster and noticed two things right off the bat. First, former Hillhouse star Keerome Lawrence is no longer listed at quarterback but as a slot receiver and ex-Wilbur Cross standout Enico Jones is not on the roster at all. I reached out to Georgetown football SID Michael "Mex" Carey who confirmed that Keerome is indeed now a receiver and that Enico Jones is no longer with the team although he was uncertain whether he was still in school.

While Georgetown and Lehigh are getting their seasons rolling, Yale will be facing Union in a 1 p.m. scrimmage at the Yale Bowl. When I spoke to Williams earlier this week, he said he may limit the time of some of the players who have locked up starting spots. Hard to argue with that philosophy since the scrimmage will give the coaching staff a better idea of how the players perform in a game setting.
