Alumni College Football

 

Max Lehrman, Amherst Football

Max is the handsome dude on the left and here is what the Amherst website said about this Bear:

 

“….Then there is Max Lehrman. The laid-back, carefree but also serious one. Lehrman may be seen on the sidelines with his helmet off, black eye paint on, yelling in enthusiasm. The defensive end, and 2013 All-NESCAC First Team selection, grew up with football. He began playing competitively in the third grade and always remembers having a ball in his hands.

“Max takes great pride in doing what he’s supposed to do,” says defensive coordinator Luke Bussard. “He listens; he’s a student of the game. If you said one thing about Max, you’d say how intelligent a player he is. He studies tape, he understands who he is playing against, and he really learns an opponent to make him a better player.”

Lehrman describes himself as a technique guy. He enjoys and studies the top players in the world at both the collegiate level and professionally. He analyzes those that are good at the craft and looks to implement those skills into his game.

“Lehrman’s best strength is his awareness on the field,” says defensive line coach Eddy Augustin. “He understands the defense, and more importantly his opponent and their schemes. This is accomplished through countless hours of film study on his own. He’s reacting before the ball is snapped, making it extremely difficult for his opponent. He has a unique ability to assess his weaknesses and make the adjustments to develop them into strengths.  He is an outstanding person and character off the field as well.”

A Washington, D.C. native, he is also an excellent golfer and enjoys playing with his family and friends. Those high expectations he holds for himself on the football field are also applied to his golf game. “Any time I get to golf with him is a treat,” says Woodrow. “He does know a ton about the game, he watches a lot of golf and is a phenomenal player, and I hope I’m able to show them (Max and Scott) something similar on the mountain.”

Lehrman attended the Landon School, a private, college preparatory school for boy’s grades 3-12, and just 30 seconds from Mergner’s [#75} home. However, Mergner went to the rival school, Georgetown Prep.  Despite the close proximity to each other, it wasn’t until the end of their senior years in high school when they formally met on a high school all-star team.

During the recruiting process, Lehrman attended Ivy League camps but decided Amherst was the right fit and committed early in his senior season. Mergner, however, was interested but had not visited the campus until January of 2011. When Lehrman found out Mergner had been contemplating Amherst, he kept in touch and hounded him, constantly texting to try and get his all-star teammate to join him in the Pioneer Valley, and it paid off. Now, best friends, the two square off against each other every practice. And Lehrman continues to nag his good buddy.

“We definitely understand that the harder we go, the better we are making each other,” said Mergner.  “Whether we are doing one-on-one’s and Max beats me 3-out-of-4 times, that’s going to make me better, or vice versa…”

 Ryan Kennedy  of Hockey News writes that DMV native, Sam Anas, is one of the Top Ten undrafted hockey players from around the world. Here’s what the expert said about our Bear:

          Sam Anas, LW – Quinnipiac Bobcats (Montreal)

Another smaller player, Anas will fit in perfectly in Montreal. Ha ha! Just kidding. But seriously, the 5-foot-8 winger is tremendously talented in the offensive zone and put up more than a point per game this past season while playing on Quinnipiac’s top line. The Habs are giving the college kid a chance to shine in the summer now, too.

And from Quinnipiac’s website, the following comments about Sam:

…the Bobcats will welcome back the 2013-14 Tim Taylor Award winner as the NCAA Div. I Men’s Ice Hockey National Rookie of the Year in Sam Anas. In just his first season with the Bobcats, Anas put together one of the finest seasons in Quinnipiac hockey history, leading all NCAA Div. I freshmen skaters with 43 points (22-21-43) while playing in all 40 games. The first Quinnipiac player in the program’s history to be honored as the top freshman in NCAA Div. I, Anas was also honored as the ECAC Hockey Co-Rookie of the Year, an ECAC Hockey Second Team selection and All-Rookie pick, George C. Carens Rookie of the year and the College Hockey News Rookie of the Year. The Bobcats will look toward their young and highly skilled second-year forward to lead the way offensively in in the 2014-15 season.

That dude used to zoom around the Bear’s Den; more like him are coming, hopefully!

Trey Lundelius, McGill, maintained their undefeated status in a 2bl overtime win over the Trent University Excalibur 15-12 and then the #1Redmen beat Bishops 8-7. Trey played in both games but they do not record Ground balls or caused turnovers on the website; so there is no indication what a defensive player did.

Capital Lacrosse Invitational

clccropLink:http://www.capitallacrosseinvitational.org/

An annual, and hopefully permanent, event which honors a Bear Great Mario St. George Boiardi will be held at Landon, Sunday October 12th.

 

The Foundation, a group of his Landon and Cornell brothers and sisters, organizes a Fall Ball classic at which six of the nation’s premier college lacrosse teams will be showcased.

 

The teams, for each there are hyperlinks to their most recent rosters so you can see what DMV players will be there, are:

 

Fans will be able to see four Bears (the Joyce brothers, Marshall Peters and Jack Bolen) and 28 alumni from the extended DMV area. The schedule for these awesome matches is linked HERE (the same link includes directions to the site).

This is a unique opportunity for young players to see highly skilled players in the intimate surroundings of Bordley Field. Unlike many college stadia and the NCAA Final 4 NFL monstrosities where your seats are barely in the same ZIP or area code as the field, here your daughter or son will have a great view of these exceptional college athletes.

Speaking of young aspiring Div. I and III lacrosse players, top instructors volunteer their time to help young boy and girl laxers learn their skills. The boys will be under the tutelage of Trilogy’s National Director Mitch Belisle, who earned his Defenseman of the Year Award at Cornell. Claire Bordley, an UVa All American, a member of the USA U19 Team and now the head coach of the Potomac School Girls Varsity team, with two of her fellow Lady Cavaliers, will help the girls to improve their skills.

More details, including times, are HERE

This event, among others, raises money for the charitable works of the Foundation. A complete explanation of how this completely volunteer organization honors George’s legacy is HERE.

Please come to this wonderful exhibition of great lacrosse and even greater effort to help kids. Copy and forward this to friends, local youth lacrosse teams and anyone
