Summer notes


Around 80 players are expected to report to campus on July 7 and begin workouts. Preseason camp begins Aug. 17, but players can’t take the field until Aug. 19.


Tony Reno said DL coach Dwayne Wilmot has stepped down for “personal reasons.”

Wilmot spent two seasons as DL coach. Reno said a replacement is expected to be named soon. According to the Times-News, the replacement is expected to be former Elon assistant Carlton Hall.


Yale Sr. RB Tyler Varga played in just six games last year because of a foot injury. He has made progress and saw a handful of foot specialists during the offseason.

So will the bruising RB be ready?

“I honestly don’t know,” Reno said. “I expect him to be here for preseason camp. Once he puts the pads on, we’ll see.”

Take a look at this year’s upcoming schedule and notice it’s a bit odd.

Yale will play five of its first six at home and then three of its final four on the road. The schedule was put together during the Tom Williams era and was built around the Yale-Army on Sept. 27 at the Yale Bowl.

Last year, freshmen like Dale Harris, Spencer Rymiszewski, Foye Oluokun and Robert Ries were thrown into the fire and saw the field quite a bit in the secondary.

Well expect at similar situation at WR this season.

Freshmen Ross Drwal (6-1, 200) and Mike Sirgusa (6-3, 203) bring good size to the position. Meanwhile, Chris Williams-Lopez and Jake Dehart have speed. Dehart has drawn comparisons to Deon Randall.

The Bulldogs have tabbed a pair of 2015 recruits, pending acceptance.

Tre Moore, a QB from St. Louis, Missouri, is one. He was drawing interest from schools like Syracuse and Notre Dame, according to 247sports.com. DE Ian Baker (North Canton, Ohio) is also headed to Yale.


Yale will travel to face Brown in a scrimmage on Sept. 6.

Chris; thanks for the update keep them coming. What was the injury to Varga and did he require surgery? Has he fully recovered and is cleared to play?

As far as Varga injury, everyone is pretty tight-lipped about it. No one will elaborate on injury, but it did not require surgery. Like I said, he is expected to report to camp and they will see how things go when he gets on the field.
As for Wilmot, I've heard from multiple sources that he did leave for personal reasons and he was not fired.

You think I could get press access for Yale-Army?
