Back from a day at home under the weather…full of ideas and also lots of CAA Football news to recap!
One big idea we had while laying back on the couch yesterday…why not try a contest/giveaway? Here is what we will do…you have to follow us on Twitter! Sorry, but it is easy just go to our twitter page: The_CAAFootball, and follow the directions on how to “follow” if you are new to Twitter. Wednesday we will tweet a trivia question…probably will be tied to info in this blog post and info on a release we posted to the site over the weekend. Be one of the first two to reply to us on Twitter and you will win a CAA Football merchandise prize pack which includes adidas and Champion brand gear.
A few housekeeping news and notes that came through over the weekend. Both Delaware and New Hampshire will be holding Bone Marrow Donor Registration drives. Click on the schools’ names above to learn specific details. You can also click on this link to learn more about the Marrow Donor Program — Get In The Game!
Towson will play its Spring Game this weekend, Saturday to be exact…click here for more info on the game and all of the tailgaiting festivities prior to kickoff. This past Friday the entire Towson football team took part in “The Big Event” and helped beautify parts of Baltimore Country as well as Towson. Take a look at how the Tigers helped in their community.
Both Delaware and Rhode Island wrapped up spring drills this weekend…if you haven’t already be sure to read up on each program’s game here.
To the big news…be sure to pay attention if you are in the market for some sweet CAA Football gear from adidas and Champion! The National Football League held its 75th Annual Draft over the weekend and a record-tying five CAA Football athletes were taken in the 7-round event…back in 1999 the league saw five NFL picks. Really the league has had as many as seven athletes chosen in one offseason, but three of those selections were by the AFL (1966).
UMass’ Vlad Ducasse was the first CAA Football player taken and the first FCS level player taken when the New York Jets and UMass alum Mike Tannenbaum took him in the second round. Four more CAA Football athletes went in day three of the draft…rounds 4-7. James Madison’s Arthur Moats was taken by the Buffalo Bills (sixth round), William and Mary’s Adrian Tracy went to the New York Giants (sixth round), James Madison’s Scotty McGee was picked by the Jacksonville Jaguars (sixth round) and the Dallas Cowboys took William and Mary’s Sean Lissemore (seventh round).
Loads of NFL Free Agent signings have happened since the end of the Saturday’s seventh round. Be sure to checkout the bottom of this release to see where some of the non-drafted CAA Football athletes are headed for rookie mini-camp. On a side note: We will only post free agent signings…there are others out there who were invited to mini-camp on a tryout basis so venture to your favorite school’s website to find that information.
One more thing…All publicity is good publicity in our case. New Hampshire’s Scott Sicko recently made national college football news with his initial decision to spurn all NFL Free Agent offers…Yahoo Sports broke yesterday’s story nationally. Give it 24 hours to settle in and look what happens…Sicko is now a Dallas Cowboy. Like we said publicity is good anyway you can get it…in our opinion.
Thanks for the questions on Twitter, and please keep them coming. Okay there you have it…read up and click the links in this post. The gear is waiting…follow us and you will have a chance come Wednesday (April 28). Check back throughout the remainder of the spring season for more student-athlete updates also.
