Bear Trax on Ice and RP Preview

Bear Trax on Ice

Sam Anas has deferred his college hockey career to test and hone his skills by playing for the USHL Youngstown Phantoms (he was their top draft choice). A Toronto radio station found the story of Potomac skater to merit an 8 minute interview ( Quite clearly Sam benefitted from his education at Landon for he sounds like a professional during his air time. Oh, by the way, he had two assists in last Friday’s game for which he was awarded the 3rd star.

The Team from Rockville Pike

[note: the team on Rockville Pike is not referred by its Jesuit given name because the school is not geographically proximate to the institution from which its name derives; the boulevard which fronts the institution, thus, is a more appropriate moniker.]

RP must be looking at its season’s last game against Landon as THE game to redeem a disappointing season (3-6). They also are likely to be highly motivated by the 20-14 loss in 2011 to the Bears on their home field. The little Hoyas have several big hogs on their line (15 players weighing 200# or more; one at 301#) and a running back for whom lists a number of college as having extended offers.

The team from Rockville Pike plays in the extremely tough MIAA of Baltimore and that league includes four teams in the Baltimore Sun’s top 10. Maybe RP would like to return to the friendlier IAC, but such aspirations would require a return to the recruiting principles of their former football league.

The RP Offense has scored an average of 27 points while allowing their opponents to post as average of 22 points.

It is hard to assess the RP performances. WaPo’s data base only includes 5 of their games and lists no numbers for the little Hoyas.

Michael Boland, #77, 6’7”, 295 pound OT/DT, has an offer from Tulane according to WaPo. One of the recruiting gurus describes Mika as follows:

He plays tackle on both sides of the ball but is best suited to play offense in college. A pretty athletic player, he’s a good run blocker and a very good pass blocker. He sets a solid base, shows good recovery speed and ability, and can mirror, slide, and dominate the point of attack. Also have quick enough feet to slide outside and cut off speed rushers


Another RP senior, who has attracted offers from colleges, is Dominic Bryan,  #25, a 6’1” RB with a list of offers on which includes BC, USNA, Temple and Vanderbilt. A third member of the RP 2012 Class is 6’7” 285# tackle Jerry Ugokwe who is said to have an offer from Villanova.
