A host of CAA Football schools continue to make the National Marrow Donor Program and their registration drives a success.  Maine plans to hold its registration drive Thursday from 3-7 p.m.  Rhode Island will be on the Rhody student quad Thursday morning asking for registrants.  Old Dominion held its registration drive earlier this week and recapped the event with an article on ODUSports.com and the video below.

Delaware’s Pat Devlin and Mark Mackey were honored for their work in the classroom last fall.  Both were recognized as FCS Athletics Director’s Association Academic All-Stars.  Former Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Bill Cowher visited the Delaware campus last week for a speaking engagement, but before his speech he talked with Devlin and offered some advice…WDEL Radio has the story here.
