BearSportsNews—Sunday Edition 9/6








As the Bears return to the White Rocks, their Brothers, who have graduated and headed off to play at the college level, become the primary topic for the Sunday Edition. The nets to capture, who is playing where, are imperfect; so if anyone is missed, PLEASE SEND the links of the Landon alumni’s team (include the player’s name; rosters are boring 8 point fonts) and that boy will be Bear “Traxed” here along with his buddies. And if you have an action picture of the athlete (even a postgame shot with Mom and Dad PLEASE SEND).



Myles Allen (’12) returns as the University of Rochester Yellow Jackets “primary running back” (UR website quote). He ran for 625 yards on 133 attempts with five TD’s. His performance resulted in his being named 1st Team All-Liberty League. They play Catholic University on 9/12at 1pm at Cardinal Stadium

Justin Cort (’14) is a returning player on the Swanee Tigers and did not play in their opening 41-31 win against Kenyon.

Hunter Davis(‘13) was elevated to head equipment manager for the Stetson Hatters and his team won their opener by a 43-13 margin over Webber International.

Jules Desroches (’14) played as a DL for the Kenyon Lords and was credited with two solo tackles in defeat to Swanee.

 Anthony Fullum (’14) has moved up on William & Mary’s depth chart as the #3 DB for the Tribe. His team beat Lafayette 34-7 at Easton. His big brother, Terrence, is an assistant coach at Landon.

Johari Johnson (’15) was highlighted as one of the key new players for the Endicott College Gulls by his head coach. Their opener was the favorite to win their league, Framingham State, and the Gulls lost 6-42. The good news is that Johari was the team’s leading rushers with 20 yards on five carries.











Obai Komara (’13) is a DL for the Davidson Wildcats and in their first game against the Citadel they lost 0-49, but Obai was credited with two assists and a solo tackle.

Vince Kindfuller (’12) returns as an NEFC All-Academic team member and DT for the MIT. The Engineers lost their opener to Worcester Polytechnic Institute 28-31.

Paul Padalino (’15) made the squad for the Richmond Spiders, but did not travel with the squad to Maryland. He did make it to the Landon- High Point game and there was a brace (“nothing” he said) on his knee.


Dominick Seagears (’15) made the squad of the Trinity College Bantams as a CB. They play in a week.

Matt Underhill (’13) is the returning starting PK (PATs, FGs and Kick offs) for the Washington & Lee Generals. Against Averett, Matt was 9/9 on PATs and in 10 kickoffs he averaged 58 yards per kick.

Kolby Williams (’15) is a member of the Spiders of Richmond and was at Byrd Stadium for the game against the Terps which the visitors led 14-13 and unfortunately the nattily clad home team scored the next 37 points (Spiders scored a TD later). Here’s Kolby warming up (he’s under the arrow coming from the back of the end zone):






 Garrett Pan was a player for the Lehigh Mountain Hawks club, but there is no site for the group this year.

 Jack Sears (’13) returns as the Colby half fly and was so successful that the team website listed his conversions as “a lot”. The Mules have their first game in two weeks.

David Spiritos (’13) presumably is a returning member of the Northwestern Wildcats club, but the web page is still showing the spring status.



Nick Diaz, Scott Powell (both L’13) and Taylor Diaz (’15) are members of the Allegheny College Gators roster. Nick and Scott have started in the first two games with Scott recording a shot. The team is 0-2 for the season.

Water Polo

Aiden Kelso (‘13) will be swimming for the Connecticut Camels team. Fellow Bear Robert Spencer graduated from CC last year.

It’s a little presumptuous to even pretend that this silly little “blog” merits anything called an editorial policy, but I cannot think of a more apt phrase to introduce an explanation of why BSN covers Bear Sports News in a peculiar style. Hopefully, the below paragraph will explain to new readers what’s going on in this space; further, the “policy” makes some important admissions (maybe even a priori apologies) and makes clear how welcome your comments, criticisms, corrections and the occasional compliment(s) are welcome!!!!

(a) the content is mine, does not reflect the opinion of Landon, Coach Padalino or anyone directly related to Landon,

(b) that any errors that may exist are mine, inadvertent and correctable (please let me know and I will make ALL corrections);

(c) that the author (me) is a huge disciple of the Landon team concept and that I will do everything that I can do to mention all the players; however, universal coverage is not really possible through this medium. If someone believes that a player or group should receive greater attention, I am open to such suggestions. I will TRY not to mention referees at any time and will limit references to the opposition.

(d) that BSN is a volunteer publication and that as the editor, publisher, statistician and writer, I am all too fallible and I apologize in advance for any error.

(e) TO REPEAT– BSN  gladly welcomes all comments, criticisms and corrections; usually the right version is incorporated in the text. SO PLEASE FEEL FREE TO GIVE ME ALL FORMS OF FEEDBACK (GOOD AND BAD).
