Spring game

Sorry for the lack of updates, as I have been away.
Here is a link to the story from the Spring Game.
I am sitting down with head coach Tony Reno on Friday morning and promise to have consistent updates moving forward.
Please comment on this post with any questions that you would like me to ask Reno and I will do my best to get them answered.
Thank you.

Spring practice notes

First of all, I apologize for the lack of updates. I’ve been busy helping with Frozen Four coverage and getting married.
Anyway, I dropped by practice Wednesday. Here’s a link to some notes along with some additional ones below. Please keep in mind head coach Tony Reno still can’t comment on the new recruiting class…
RB Tyler Varga had a remarkable sophomore season last year. The All-Ivy League pick is only getting better. Reno said he’s improved his blocking and pass catching.
“We want to make him a complete back,” Reno said.
Well Kahlil Keys pulled a hamstring during winter conditioning so he hasn’t played this spring. Expect him to be in the mix when healthy. Everett Johnson has moved from LB to RB and Reno said he’s been a pleasant surprise so far. Junior Tate Harshbarger and Austin Carter have also gotten touches.
Two LBs to keep an eye on: Will Vaughan and Andrew Larkin. Larkin missed last season with an injury. Both have been impressive.
Kyle White, who has moved from the offensive line to defensive line, WR Avery Lewis and Grant Wallace, and DBs Roger Kilgore and Cole Champion.

Yale has made an offer to Woodgrove (Va.) JR. Josh Sweet, according to the Washington Post.
Sweet, a bruising tailback, rushed for 1,725 yards and 25 touchdowns on 252 carries last season.
Check out highlights Sweet here.
Also, I will be stopping by practice on Wednesday.
