Monmouth football looks for opening day victory against Lehigh

Monmouth football looks for opening day victory against Lehigh
BY JEREMY SCHILLING

Lehigh University (0-0) at Monmouth University (0-0)

Saturday, September 3, 2011

1pm – Kessler Field, West Long Branch, New Jersey

Radio: 1160AM, 1310AM, shoresportsnetwork.com

THE LAST WHISTLE: Monmouth is looking to rebound from a disappointing 3-8 season that featured four one-point losses. The offense was able to put up points, but the defense gave up too many big plays early in the season and that effectively ended their hopes at contending for the Northeast Conference crown and the automatic birth into the FCS playoffs.

The Hawks say they have turned the page, however, and head coach Kevin Callahan is excited about the upcoming season..

“I feel good,” Callahan said. “I think we’re ready to go. I’ve been very happy with our week of practice. I was very happy with what we were able to do during preseason. It’s game time, lets go play. We’re ready for it.”
