News and notes Part II

Some additional news and notes...

Offensive improvements

Reno: “Do we feel we have all the personnel we need? No. But we’re close. So you’ll see more of what we did Saturday: stretch the field sideline to sideline and endline to endline. I think one of the things that does, gives the chance for our running backs to affect the game in positive way. When you run the ball, it makes things easier on the perimeter.”

Army connections

Yale CB Spencer Rymiszewski’s father, Phil, played football for Army from 1978-80…Kicker Kyle Cazzetta’s father, Vin, was an athletic administrator at Army. Cazzetta, who grew up 25 minutes from West Point, nearly signed with Army until Yale’s offer came in at the last moment his senior season of high school…Army OL Steve Shumaker is from Milford.

Scouting report

The Black Knights are a veteran skilled team. Their triple option presents issues for opposing defenses. Their top three rushers, Larry Dixon, Angel Santiago and Terry Baggett, are all seniors. They are experienced, fast and physical. Army is big up front on the offensive line and get into the second level quickly.

Defensively, the Black Knights bring a variety of looks and pressure.
