Graduation

Got to spend my last time with some of the best kids ever!  Got to see a lot of camaraderie in College Hill Tavern Friday eve, Coscia, Dorner, Luke C, Lash, McNally, Duncan, Jeanot, and many more players!


Let it be known that Coach Clayton was there celebrating with his O lineman!  Stan takes a lot of heat on this board and believe me he treats each and every one of his O lineman like sons!  It was refreshing to see such a site!  Stan mentioned that each one of his guys spent summers in Easton hoping to get better and working there ass off, and he was sending them off to fly in the real world.

Also, of note former Coach Joe Dougherty, Doc, was there sending off Coscia and Dorner.

Also, in attendance was Coach Hallahan.

Quote of the night from my graduating son:  "Would you trade your experience at Lafayette, would you do it all over again?"  No Loved my time here, wouldn't trade it for the world!  Love my teammates!

What a great bunch of kids, going to miss them all!

These guys went out on a great note in the Bronx and over four years, they:
--broke the Streak.
--went through some tough times and prevailed.
--beat ranked teams.
--won a title.
--beat William & Mary.
--helped a teammate become an NFL prospect.  
--went through the scholarship transition and showed great leadership in doing so.
--beat Lehigh twice. Correction: DESTROYED them twice.  
--beat Colgate twice, once with perhaps the unique OT score of 37-24.
--beat Penn twice.
And so much more. Won a title. That's why they came here!
I'm glad they feel good about the Lafayette experience.
The 2013 team taught me what I should have learned in 1994: don't ever give up on a Lafayette team (a lesson reinforced by our basketball team this year).
Through good times and tough times this group made even curmudgeonly old fans like me proud to be a Pard.
Thank you seniors.

Some great guys that provided even better leadership. One of those guys tutored mine in engineering calculus. When he was injured, they picked him up. A lot can be learned from those guys. They will be missed. They will all do well. Many of the younger kids are better for knowing them.

I'm glad to hear it.  Quite a list of accomplishments for those Seniors.

Thanks for posting that, pg.  Great to hear.  Their perseverance defines this group.  Congrats to your son and to all the senior footballers.  They brought us a lot of joy.

It was a nice festivity, if you can get by a ding-dong dean who kept saying "in abstentia" instead of "in absentia" and pronounced Ross's last name "Shoyerman."  (Is it really possible to be a member of the Lafayette community and not know how to pronounce his last name by now? "She's not a sports fan" is no defense.  I expect a certain amount of awareness out of my bloated administrations.)  I happened to be sitting near the "Shoyerman's" and I saw no reaction.  Classy.

Football people will always remember Ross as "Sherman." "Shoyerman" might be the German pronunciation. But get this, I heard from someone that he really does pronounce it "Schwurman" or something like that and that he never even bothered to correct anyone for four years. He's best known as "winner."
