2011 @The_CAAFootball Blog Wrap – 6.2

Jun 2, 2011, 3:50 PM EST

Where are the summer months going!  Tomorrow we will be off to @The_CAAFootball Annual Meetings in South Carolina which begin Saturday evening, June 4.  The league’s Head Coaches and Athletics Directors will take part in meetings both Sunday, June 5, and Monday, June 6 before adjourning Monday afternoon.  Keep an eye on the blog, Facebook and Twitter for updates throughout the weekend.  We will be posting pictures of those in attendance, tweeting some of the comments and discussions taking place in the meetings and will try to get a couple interviews/videos to post on YouTube from the event.

Lately we have been picking up on a number of entities asking you to hashtag your tweets about a particular brand or subject…we will follow suit in this and work to make it catch on for CAA Football.  Anytime you tweet about our league, one of our football programs, one of our games or anything about CAA Football hashtag it with a: #CAAFB.  That will help us in tracking who is talking about us and who is talking to us on Twitter.  We love interacting on all of our forms of digital media so please keep the discussions coming on Facebook, Twitter and here on the blog!

The College Football Performance Awards continue to release their preseason watch lists.  Already out this summer are the QB, RB and WR lists.  Take a look at the graphics below to find out which of the #CAAFB players made the cut.  We will continue to post the preseason lists as they become available.

Also slowly inching their way out are a handful of preseason magazines, which include polls and All-America picks.  We will hold off in publicizing each publication as it is released and rather put together an all-encompassing release once we have seen all of the preseason publications.

Delaware head coach K.C. Keeler picked up yet another National Coach of the Year honor last week when he was named the FieldTurf FCS Coach of the Year.  We also want to promote Delaware’s new YouTube channel…we look forward to sharing the football pertaining to football here on this blog!

Former James Madison defensive end/linebacker Charles Haley will be part of this year’s College Football Hall of Fame class.  The National Football Foundation made the official announcement early last week.  Also posted below is the most recent photo gallery from the Bridgeforth Stadium renovation project.  For additional photo galleries click here.

New Hampshire garnered another academic honor last week when it accepted the CAA Football APR honor given out by the FCS Athletic Directors Association.  The Wildcats were the only CAA Football squad to earn public recognition in this year’s NCAA APR release.  Head coach Sean McDonnell also recently released the dates for his Granite State Coaches Clinics, the first of which took place yesterday and today.
