Deep threat!

At L&C we always let you take a shot at the position that you want to play the most. It's the way we do things here...

Every Friday is a chance for the big fella's to plead their case. I think the evidence supports these guys playing with their hand in the dirt...

Big Guy - Big Brain

Some people say the bigger they are - the higher the GPA. Well - those people are right.

Curtis Smith's hard work in the lab and the classroom was recognized by being named to the 2008 Academic All-District Football Team presented by ESPN The Magazine.

This - after being named 2nd Team All League in only his second year on the field with L&C. (a previous knee injury kept him off the field in 2006)

Coach Jacobs & Coach Phil - DISMANTLED...

No mercy was had last Friday morning when one Joevonte Mayes and Drew Hubbard made an example of both full time defensive coaches.

The tournament started during daily doubles and was brought to a close this past bye week. The Team was surprised at both Magbanua's and Jacob's lack of answer to Maye's dink and dunk attack.

"I guess Bowling Green is just that good", was the only comment Coach Jacob's could muster...

The rash of hilarious T-shirts was actually started by Mrs. Falconer on Coach Falconer's 31st Birthday. Devious as she was - she had approximately 15 T-shirts with an 18 year old Coach Falconer (senior picture) printed - and then proceeded to hand them out at one of last year's games.

Baby faced? yes - O-Line Coaches are supposed to be...

Look Familiar?

Some of the players decided that they needed to make a team shirt, and this is what they came up with.

The Ultimate Warrior

Shawn Kelly strikes again...
The coaches were reminiscing about their younger days in the offices the other day and watching an interview on Youtube about the Ultimate Warrior. Sophomore defensive back Shawn Kelly, a big Ultimate Warrior fan, caught part of the coaches' throwback session and decided to give the team another laugh at practice the next day.

Blue Collar

In the special teams meeting yesterday, Coach Phil expressed that the special teams needed to have a "blue collar" mentality. Additionally, he explained that we needed to come to practice with our hard hats and lunch pail, ready for work.

This was the result:

Pios Win!

The Lewis & Clark Pioneers win their opening game with a score of 43-7 against Principia College in Elsah, Illinois. The win actually put the Pioneers on the front page of the Oregonian.

The team landed in St. Louis, Missouri on Friday and drove straight to the Gateway Arch in St. Louis. The pictures of the trip and the game are posted below.

XBox NCAA Football Tourney

We are about a week and a half into camp now, and the Lewis & Clark Coaching staff decided to put together a NCAA Football Tournament on the XBox.

We made teams of 2, and each player had to play two quarters of each game. Then each team picked from one of the pre-selected college teams out of a hat. Because of the uneven amount of teams, a coaches' team was created. The coaches' team has made it past the 2nd round so far.

Camp so far has been productive and very fast-paced. The players are playing with a lot of intensity. They are practicing like they are preparing to win a few games. The first test will be against Principia College in Illinois on September 6th.

1st Day of Camp

Last night all the players reported to camp, and today was the first practice. The practice was about as good as you could ask for on the first day. The intensity and speed of practice was high, and the players were all very excited for the start of the new season.

We are all very optimistic about this season, and it showed with the tempo of practice. The upperclassmen did a good job of showing the incoming players the ropes. The team also seemed to understand the concept of taking responsibility and accountability among themselves. It is always nice to see the players encouraging each other as opposed to having the coaches create the intensity.
