Hockey wins, Rogers speaks and other links
In most of our championship years, York's teams started collecting trophies en route to the big one. Beanpot, Hockey East regular season, etc. Well with their win tonight, the Hockey team leaped ahead of UNH for first place in the Hockey East. The teams face off tomorrow night with BC having a chance to clinch the regular season title.
It wasn't all rosy though. Chris Kreider broke his jaw and is likely out for the remainder of the season.
The BC Draft crew held a Q&A with our new OC Kevin Rogers. Rogers doesn't tip his hand much regarding players or schemes. What is interesting is that he will seem to continue a BC tradition of Coordinators being secondary recruiters while the staffers are the primary. Many schools handle the recruiting among the staff that way but I've never really cared for it. I think you lose something if the coordinators are not actively on the road meeting the kids, talking to other coaches, etc. I also think that recruiting windows are so much smaller now, that more feet on the street can be useful.
Castonzo told WEEI that he does expect to be a first-round draft pick.
Castonzo's former bookend tackle Gosder Cherilus is battling knee issues again. If the Lions need a tackle, maybe they will take AC.
The ACC named Carolyn Sword to its All Academic team.
