This past weekend Colgate football had a bye week and took the extra time to rest and game plan for the Bucknell Bison. Defensively, the Bison play in a 4-2 front and have eight men in the box for the majority of the game. When they differentiate from their 4-2 front, the Bison blitz nearly seventy-five percent while utilizing their physical defensive line. Upfront, their defensive tackle, Anthony De La Rosa is the best in the league. He is physical, has a burst off the ball, and is an overall excellent player. When the schedule came out early in the summer I was very excited to see that I will play the final game of my career against the best in the league. The last two years have been a battle and I look forward to more of the same on Saturday.
Tomorrow I play my final game and it is amazing how fast these four years have passed. In reflection, I can honestly say that on collegiate signing day placing a Colgate cap atop of my head and was the best decision I have made. I will never forget the memories and thank all of those who have supported me through out my career.
I will write next week and let you know the outcome of Saturday’s game. Have a great weekend.
All the best,
