      SUBJECT: Hills Leads the Way as White Team Downs Blue 21-0 in University of Delaware Football Spring Game

      DATE:  May 3, 2014

      NEWARK, Del.  -- University of Delaware rising sophomore running back Wes Hills was the star for the White team on Saturday as he rushed for 154 yards and scored two touchdowns to lead his team to a 21-0 victory in the annual Blue-White Football Spring Game at Delaware Stadium. 

      The game, played under sunny skies before an estimated crowd of 2,500, wrapped up spring drills for the Blue Hen football squad. The game was preceded by the annual Fandemonium V in which families and fans enjoyed games, pony rides, face-painting, and bounce houses, sampled food from local vendors, and listened to a live band. 

      The White team, which consisted of the first team offense and defense, dominated the action as the squad piled up 282 total yards, including 154 yards on the ground.  Defensively, the team held the Blue squad to just two first downs and 40 total yards. The game format saw the teams play two 12-minute quarters followed by a 20-minute half with a running clock. 

      “I thought we played with good energy and intensity today, we had some good situational stuff, and the kids had the chance to come out and play in front of a good crowd,” said Delaware head coach Dave Brock, who led the Hens to a 7-5 record in his first season at the helm last fall. “We got to see some young guys who are starting to establish themselves. Wesley Hills showed everybody the kind of player he is today. He is a dynamic young guy, an explosive player, and a home run hitter. Right now he has some ball security issues (he had two fumbles) that we have to address, but that is what the summer and training camp is for. We also had the chance to get a good look at some of our young defensive guys like Jalen Kindle, Larry Spears, Blaine Woodson, and Justin Watson and we were very pleased with the way they played. Overall it was an exciting day.”

      Hills, who saw limited action as the team’s No. 3 running back as a true freshman in 2013, was a busy runner as he carried 20 times for 154 yards and one touchdown and caught two passes for 33 yards and another score. He broke off on a 60-yard touchdown run down the left sideline on just the third play of the game. He later caught a 23-yard scoring toss from senior quarterback Justin Burns, grabbing the ball in the flat and breaking several tackles for the score. He saw most of the reps as sophomore running back Jalen Randolph, who will battle with Hills for the top running back spot this fall, sat out with an injury. 

      “Today was a step in the right direction,” said Hills, who carried the ball just 10 times for 81 yards in his rookie campaign in 2013 but was a big contributor on special teams. “We are getting a lot better, and even though we lost a lot of important guys (from last season), it should be a great fall. I hope to improve on a lot of things this summer - ball security, blocking, hitting the right holes, and stuff like that. I have a lot to focus on.”

      The White team closed out the scoring with 1:11 left in the second quarter when Burns tossed a 39-yard strike to senior Stephen Clark on a post pattern down the right side. Clark caught two passes for a game-high 48 yards on the day while Andrew Peterson and Andrew Opoku also each caught two passes. 

      Burns, slated to be the Hens’ No. 2 quarterback this fall behind third-year starter and 2013 Colonial Athletic Association passing rating leader Trent Hurley, played for both teams on Saturday and combined to hit on 9 of 18 passes for 116 yards and two touchdowns. Hurley played the first two series and was 2 of 4 passing for 24 yards before sitting down for the rest of the day. 
      Defensively, senior defensive end Derrick Saulsberry led the White team with four tackles, all of them for loss. Senior linebacker David Mackall, junior defensive tackle Vince Hollerman, and redshirt freshman linebacker Jalen Kindle all added three stops. For the Blue team, redshirt freshman linebacker Larry Spears, redshirt freshman defensive tackle Blaine Woodson, redshirt freshman defensive back Chris Buckley, and junior defensive back Eric Farkas each had three tackles. 

      On special teams, sophomore punter Eric Enderson, a second-team All-Colonial Athletic Association selection in 2013 when he ranked third in the nation with a 45.0 yard average, booted eight punts for a 48.4 yards average, including one that went for 71 yards. 

      Among the top veteran players who sat out of the game due to injuries were Randolph, defensive backs Craig Brodsky, Jake Giusti, and Jordan Thomas, wide receiver Jerel Harrison, defensive linemen Laith Wallschleger and Josh Plummer, offensive lineman JD Dzurko, and tight end Nick Boyle. 

      Brock announced on Friday the three Blue Hen Touchdown Club Most Improved Players for spring practice. The award recipients were kicker Garrett Greenway (Special Teams), offensive tackle Connor Bozick (Offense), and cornerback Justin Watson (Defense).

      SUBJECT:  University of Delaware Football Partnering to Host Annual Be the Match Bone Marrow Donation Event Monday
      DATE:  May 4, 2014
      NEWARK, Del.  -- The University of Delaware football team, in partnership with the UD women’s volleyball team, the UD Student Nurses Association, and the UD Residence Assistants will host the sixth annual Be the Match bone marrow registry event this Monday, May 5. 
      The event will be held from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Monday, May 5 in Multipurpose Room C of the Trabant University Center.
      Last year’s event brought in a record 570 registrations, shattering the previous high of 370. Delaware has had four matches during the drives, including former Blue Hen football student-athletes Paul Worrilow, now a member of the NFL Atlanta Falcons, and Corey Olsen. 
      Every year, thousands of people are diagnosed with blood related illnesses and they rely on the National Bone Marrow Registry to match them with donors to save their lives.
      Entering the registry only requires some paper work and a simple mouth swab, which is less then a 20-minute process. For those who are matched with someone in the registry, a blood plasma donation is all it takes 75 percent of the time. 
      In the past five years, the Fightin’ Blue Hens have entered more than 1,000 people in the National Bone Marrow Registry through the Get in the Game Save a Life program.
      Students, faculty, staff and members of the community are invited to attend the event. 
      For more information on the Be the Match Foundation and the May 5 event, go to www.bethematchfoundation.org.

      SUBJECT:  University of Delaware Football Standout Zach Kerr Sets Sights on National Football League Draft
      DATE:  May 8, 2014
      NEW YORK  --  When the annual National Football League Draft takes place this weekend at Radio City Music Hall, at least one University of Delaware football standout is expected to hear his name called. 
      Blue Hen defensive tackle Zach Kerr (Quince Orchard HS/Gaithersburg, Md.), who earned All-American honors in 2013 when he led the Blue Hens to a 7-5 record under first-year head coach Dave Brock, is among the defensive linemen expected to be taken at some point during the three-day, seven-round draft. 
      The NFL Draft, which will once again be televised live on ESPN and the NFL Network, will begin Thursday night, May 8, at 8 p.m. and follow through to the final pick on Saturday afternoon. The first round will be held Thursday night, the second and third rounds will take place Friday beginning at 7 p.m., and the final four rounds will be announced on Saturday starting at 12 noon. Fans can follow the draft online at www.nfl.com. 
      The 6-1, 326 lb. Kerr was ranked No. 18 among all defensive tackles and No. 200 among all players in the most recent cbssports.com rankings and was projected as a sixth round pick. He was ranked 13th among all NCAA Division I FCS players and third among Colonial Athletic Association players, trailing only Towson running back Terrance West (No. 96) and Maine cornerback Kendall James (No. 136). 
      In addition to Kerr, Blue Hen 6-6, 346 lb. offensive tackle Erle Ladson (Cardinal Hayes HS/Bronx, N.Y.), and 5-10, 192 lb. cornerback Travis Hawkins (Quince Orchard HS/Rockville, Md.) were also listed in the rankings. Each of those players, as well as 5-11, 200 lb. running back Andrew Pierce (Cumberland Regional/Bridgeton, N.J.), are expected to get close looks from NFL teams as free agents should they not be selected in the draft. 
      Kerr, however, is the most likely to hear is name called following a senior year that saw him earn first team All-Colonial Athletic Association, second team The Sports Network All-American, and third team Beyond Sports Network All-American honors. Kerr, who finished the season with 57 tackles, 5.5 tackles for loss, 3.5 sacks, and two forced fumbles, also took part in the prestigious East-West Shrine Game and worked out for NFL scouts at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, Ind. in February. 
      Ladson started all 12 games at offensive tackle in 2013 and ended his career having played in 48 games with 23 starts. He participated in the NFLPA Collegiate All-Star Game at the end of last season. 
      Hawkins, who played for three seasons at Delaware after transferring from Maryland, appeared in 33 games with 31 starts at Delaware and recorded 168 tackles, eight interceptions, and 20 pass breakups. A 2012 All-CAA cornerback, he recorded 66 tackles, four interceptions, and eight pass breakups and average 27.4 yards on nine kickoff returns with one touchdown last fall. 
      Pierce, one of the top running backs in Delaware history and a two-year team captain, was a four-year starter for the Blue Hens who twice earned All-American honors and was a four-time All-CAA selection. He rushed for 822 yards and 10 touchdowns as a senior and finished his career ranked No. 2 all-time at Delaware with 4,459 yards rushing and 44 touchdowns. 
      Delaware, which currently has eight active players on NFL rosters, last had a player drafted in 2012 when offensive lineman Gino Gradkowski was selected in the fourth round by the Baltimore Ravens.

      SUBJECT: University of Delaware Football Picked No. 23 in Athlon Sports FCS Preseason Top 25 Poll
      DATE:  June 16, 2014
      NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The University of Delaware football team has been picked No. 23 in the Athlon Sports Pre-season Top 25 poll that was announced recently by the publication.
      Delaware, which will be led this fall by second-year head coach Dave Brock, joins the ranks of six other Colonial Athletic Association schools picked in the top 25, five of which are on the 2014 Delaware football schedule.  
      Delaware finished with a record of 7-5 in 2013, losing two games by three points or less. The Blue Hens narrowly missed out on the 20-team NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision Tournament.
      "We are excited to be recognized by Athlon in its pre-season poll,” said Brock, who returns 13 starters from last year’s squad. “We look forward to an exciting 2014 season as we continue to rebuild the Delaware football program. We are working hard in the summer program and look forward to reporting for camp the first weekend in August."
      Among the Blue Hens’ top returning players are All-CAA selections in senior wide receiver Michael Johnson, senior tight end Nick Boyle, senior linebacker Pat Callaway, and sophomore All-American punter Eric Enderson as well as senior quarterback Trent Hurley.
      Athlon Sports is the first major pre-season poll to include Delaware in its Top 25 ranking as the Hens were not ranked in the Lindy’s and Sporting News polls announced earlier this month. The Sports Network media poll and the FCS coaches poll will be announced in August.
      Eastern Washington came out ahead of three-time defending national champion North Dakota State – which graduated 24 seniors -  to take the top spot in the Athlon poll. New Hampshire was the highest CAA school in the rankings at No. 4.
      Other CAA schools included in the poll were Villanova at No. 8, 2013 national runner up Towson at No. 10, William & Mary at No. 15, Richmond at No. 18, and James Madison at No. 22. Maine, the 2013 CAA champion, was left off all three pre-season polls.
      The CAA was well represented in the Athlon poll, putting seven teams in the top 25, the most among the 14 NCAA FCS conferences. The Missouri Valley Conference ranked second as it had five teams ranked in the pre-season top 25.
      Delaware will face five teams from the Athlon pre-season poll this fall as the Blue Hens will take on No. 4 New Hampshire on Nov. 15 in Durham, N.H.; No. 8 Villanova on Nov. 22 at Delaware Stadium; No. 10 Towson on Oct. 18 at Delaware Stadium; No. 15 William & Mary on Oct. 25 in Williamsburg, Va.; and No. 22 James Madison on Sept. 27 in Harrisonburg, Va.
      Delaware will travel to Heinz Field to take on Atlantic Coast Conference contender University of Pittsburgh in the first-ever matchup between the two schools in the season opener Aug. 30 followed by the home opener the following week vs. in-state foe Delaware State at Delaware Stadium.
      Great season ticket packages for Delaware’s seven-game home schedule are on sale now at www.bluehens.com or by calling 302-831-2257.

      SUBJECT:  University of Delaware Football Places Enderson, Johnson on The Sports Network Pre-Season All-American Team
      DATE:  July 1, 2014
      PHILADELPHIA  --  The University of Delaware and the Colonial Athletic Association were well-represented on The Sports Network Football Championship Subdivision Pre-Season All-American teams announced Tuesday by TSN. 
      Blue Hen sophomore punter Eric Enderson (Phoebus HS/Hampton, Va.) earned second team honors while senior wide receiver and kick returner Michael Johnson (Gainesville/Gainesville, Fla.) gained a spot on the third team in the all-purpose category. The CAA led all national conferences with 15 players honored followed by the Big Sky with 13 citations. 
      The duo led Delaware to a 7-5 record under first-year head coach Dave Brock last fall. The Blue Hens, who will open pre-season camp in early August, look to contend for the CAA title this fall as they welcome back 13 starters, including four who earned all-league honors. 
      No player in the history of Delaware football had a better season punting than Enderson in 2013 when the redshirt freshman ranked among the nation’s top punters. After a slow start over the first three games, he was the model of consistency and led the CAA in punting average (45.0 per punt), punting yardage (2,701), and punts over 50 yards (22 - no other CAA player had more than 13), and ranked No. 2 in punts inside the opponent 20-yard line (20).
      His 45.0 yard average, which ranked No. 3 nationally, shattered the UD single season record of 42.8 set by Gene Vadas in 1991. Enderson earned a slew of post-season honors in 2013 as he was named honorable mention College Sporting News All-American, second team Phil Steele Freshman All-American, second team College Sports Journal Freshman All-American, and second team All-CAA. 
      “Eric had a breakout year as a redshirt freshman last year,” said Brock. “We are looking for him to maintain and improve upon that performance this fall. He really became a weapon for us on our special teams, which is one of the most critical parts of our team.”
      Johnson proved to be one of the league’s most dynamic players, whether it be catching passes, running the ball, or returning kickoffs. He ranked second in the CAA in all-purpose yardage, piling up 1,800 yards for an average of 150.0 per game.
      He led the Blue Hens in receiving with 60 catches for 1,035 yards and nine touchdowns, rushed for 159 yards and two scores, and returned 20 kickoffs for an average of 20.9 yards per return. He had six plays go for 60 yards or more during the season and led all CAA receivers with nine touchdowns while ranking third in yardage and seventh in receptions. 
      “Michael proved to be one of the top wide receivers not only in the CAA but in the nation last year,” said Brock. “We expect him to build on his junior year and again be an explosive playmaker and one of the top guys in the nation at his position.”
      In addition to Enderson and Johnson, other CAA players listed on the pre-season All-American team were first teamers in Towson fullback Emmanuel Holder, New Hampshire wide receiver R.J. Harris, and Towson cornerback Tye Smith; second team picks in William & Mary wide receiver Tre McBride, New Hampshire offensive lineman Mike Coccia, Richmond offensive lineman Austin Gund, William & Mary defensive end Mike Reilly, and William & Mary linebacker Luke Rhodes; and third teamers in Villanova quarterback John Robertson, Richmond wide receiver Stephen Barnette, Richmond defensive tackle Evan Kelly, Towson safety Christian Carpenter, and James Madison safety Dean Marlowe.

      Report of the University of Delaware 2013 Football Team from Training Camp to Media Day-Dave Brock ready for the season

      By David A. Willauer-Contributing Editor-Sunday, August 11, 2013-Tubby Raymond Field at Delaware Stadium-Newark, DE: From the training camps before the real season Dave Brock new head coach is very anxious to get the 2013 season underway before the Hens opened up on August 29, 2013 against Jacksonville University from Florida. Key returnees from the 2012 squad that will play this year are jr QBTrent Hurley, who didn't play spring ball due to an injury, sr running back Andrew Pierce who is ready for another outstanding game, sr wide receiver Rob Jones a senior wide receiver along with sr Travis Hawkins at defensive back. The new offense that Coach Brock will be installing is a Multiple Offense where they will lineup in a 1 back 2 back or 0 back system along with a mixture of tricks and surprises.


      Dave Brock New Head Football Coach at the University of Delaware on his thoughts at training camp: "We're off to a great start by practicing hard along with energy and enthusiasm along with being right in the heart of things for our squad." "After yesterday's scrimmage and watching tapes, you evaluate and saw some guys make some key plays that were accurate and very exciting along with our squad that want to produce right and to make sure they do their assignments. "


      Both our QB's in Trent Hurley and Trevor Sasek both did well in yesterdays scrimmage and asked them to do a lot of different plays that they want to use and was segmented but you didn't have to transition from one end of the area to the other they handled the things well we have moved around and played situational football all the way through I was pleased with them and did a very nice job."


      "After being named the new head coach at Delaware, I wanted to make sure to hire the right people that I feel that can assist our football squad to have in the CAA league and to be successful both offense and defensive coordinators who are going to call the plays for us." "Our defenses are going to be different this year but it is still Delaware's defense and will have the ability to create the kind of plays as we have 3 to 5 coaches in the pressbox on game day later on before the opener we will select the captains later."


      (Please add players and their quotes to whom I have interviewed)


      Key players that are back from last year are Travis Hawkins at defensive back qb Trent Hurley, wr Rob Jones and 1000 yard rusher Andrew Pierce this is what they had said about the training camp.


      Travis Hawkins UD defensive back: "Our squad has a mean front 7 what we have to do on the back end spring season prepared us a lot with anew coaching staff with the expectations that are we jumped are the bandwagon and we're raring to go." "Our defense will run a 4-3 formation and being with Coach Brock is that he is funny at times and can be real hard he is all about winning that is what we like this year." "Jacksonville has speed coming on August 29, 2013 we will be raring to go."


      Trent Hurley UD returning qb: "Last year we were disappointed as we finished with a 5-6 mark but we held up at the end but to go up on a high note I was injured during the spring season but our squad and the new coaching staff came together I had to learn the playbook as we will be running various formation of the Multiple Offense where we learn various formation with qb under center along with the shotgun, in this formation we throw short and intermediate passes along with the 1 back 2 back formation, we do everything I can't put the formation into words." I can't want until we play Jacksonville on August 29th."


      Rob Jones UD returning wide receiver: "We're looking to have a great year training camp and we're working on the timing to get the offense working by ironing out the little details with our quarterbacks, wide receivers along with our lineman so we should be on the same page." "Our spring football practices I had to work on more concentrate lining up on the ball along with focusing on my breaks staying low on catching the ball making sure that my shoulders more freedom in our route. "Coach Devine is my offensive coach as he is in charge of the offensive line coach making each player accountable and doing your job to make things together this is all about us right now."


      Andrew Pierce University of Delaware's running back: "I'm having a great camp right now as we're picking up with the pace of our offense and will do a good job." At yesterday's controlled scrimmage our defense did well as they dominated up front along with being one of the best in the country." "For me I have to improve myself in order to get better and pick up the tempo where our offense and defense have to do our things in order for us to prepare for the 29th of August." "In spring ball we learned the new multiple offense I did very well in the game but didn't get a lot of yardage in the game but did my job the Multiple is different as we're going to attack, throw down the field for our other teams in the CAA have to prepare as we will be ready with our offense." "Spring training camp has been going well for me it is good to be healthy and to be a camp for 100 percent and we are ready for Jacksonville as soon as the light switch turns on we're in the midst of August 29th and as a captain I am going to be ready."


      "Sean Baner will be a major straight a very experienced kicker who has the tools to kick long and short field goals." "You have to have opportunities I have studied that he has been in the past that he is taking care of his leg along with his body." "For the playoffs you have to win enough game when I was at Hofstra we won 7, 8 or 9 games and sometimes didn't get selected for the playoffs and if we take care of our business we will be in the playoffs we are looking for 1-0 on the 29th of August."

      SUBJECT:  University of Delaware Football Finalizes Agreements to Play Five Atlantic Coast Conference Opponents Through 2020 Season
      DATE:  August 8, 2014
      NEWARK, Del.  --  Atlantic Coast Conference opponents will be familiar names on the University of Delaware football squad’s schedule in the coming seasons, UD Director of Athletics and Recreation Services Eric Ziady has announced. 
      Delaware has finalized deals with five ACC schools to play road games against teams from that powerful NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision conference over the next six seasons. 
      The Blue Hens, who will open the 2014 campaign Aug. 30 at ACC opponent Pittsburgh, have also worked out agreements to travel to the University of North Carolina (Sept. 26, 2015), Wake Forest (Sept. 17, 2016), Virginia Tech (Sept. 2, 2017), Pittsburgh (Aug. 31, 2019), and North Carolina State (Sept. 5, 2020). 
      Pittsburgh, Virginia Tech, and North Carolina all played in bowl games following the 2013 season while Virginia Tech, North Carolina State, and Pittsburgh all appeared in bowl games during the 2012 campaign. 
      Ziady noted that he is still looking to schedule an NCAA FBS opponent for the 2018 season. 
      “It is exciting for us to have the opportunity to play some of the nation’s top football programs on our schedule year in and year out,” said Ziady. “Playing schools from the ACC gives our student-athletes the chance to compete against some of the top teams in the country and I know our fans will be excited to see these opponents on the schedule and to visit some outstanding venues to cheer on the Blue Hens.”
      “These future schedules represent a great opportunity for the players in our program to compete against some of the best teams in the country,” said Delaware head coach Dave Brock. “We look forward to the opportunity to compete annually against some of the nation’s best. This will create great excitement for our football team and for all the people who love Delaware football.”
      Since the 2003 season, the Blue Hens have played eight games against FBS opponents, facing Navy (2003, 2004, 2007, 2009, 2011, and 2013), and Maryland (2008).

      FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Contact: Matt Taylor (taylormd@umd.edu)

      August 8, 2014 Matt Bertram (mbertram@umd.edu)

      Head Coach Randy Edsall

      COLLEGE PARK, Md. –

      On if there is any update on Evan Mulrooney or Sean Christie:

      “No. We’re still waiting to get back results on some tests that were done. I went up and saw [Evan] today. He’s doing well. I think he’ll still be in the hospital through the weekend and then hopefully we’ll have some more information after that and he’ll be out really soon. Sean, we’re waiting for word from the doctor. He had an MRI, so we’ll see where he’s at.”

      On if he would consider moving Will Ulmer from quarterback:

      “I told Will during the recruiting process that he’ll be a quarterback until he comes to me and tells me he doesn’t want to be a quarterback. We’re working him at quarterback and we’re developing him as quarterback. It he doesn’t think that he wants to be a quarterback anymore then he’ll come and tell me that.”

      On if Shane Cockerille has improved:

      “I think Shane is a little bit better than he was in the spring. Again, there are things he still needs to work on. He needs to get his elbow up a little bit when he throws and just some mechanical things that he’s got to do all the time. He does them sometimes, but he’s not doing them all the time so sometimes the accuracy isn’t where it needs to be. We’ve got to just continue to get him to focus on all those little things.”

      On P.J Gallo’s improvement as a pass catcher:

      “P.J’s a guy that can line up on the ball and can also flex out. He’s in a great competition with Andrew [Isaacs] and also with Derrick [Heyward]. It’s going to be interesting to see how that all plays out. P.J.’s just got to keep improving because he’s got great competition at that position.”

      On the running back competition:

      “I think there is great competition there. Brandon [Ross] has put the ball on the ground a little bit, which I don’t like. We have some guys that have missed some assignments. Again, we’re looking for those guys that can be consistent with everything they’re doing in terms of ball security, in terms of catching the ball, in terms of pass protection and in terms of their assignments. It’s too early to say this guy is sticking out or that guy is sticking out, but again, we’ll have a little bit of a scrimmage today with redzone and tight redzone and short yardage and goal line. We’ll have a bigger scrimmage on Saturday.”

      “Like I said, I hope that somebody takes the bull by the horns and just separates them self. If nobody does then we’re going to have to make a decision on who are the two or three guys that have earned the right to play. Again, you can’t get four guys reps during the season. You can hardly get two guys reps there at that position. They are going to determine that. I hope that it’ll be determined when those guys determine it.”

      On the settlement between the ACC and Maryland:

      “Just glad that it’s over and we can just focus on the season and focus on football.”

      On the freshman class:

      “I’m pleased with the freshman class. Let’s reserve judgment until we get enough of a book on them here in preseason to be able to make any comments as they get into some of the scrimmage situations and more game like situations. Let’s see how they respond. Practice is one thing, but then when you get into the scrimmages, that’s another. I’m very pleased with the overall group. I think it’s a very good group and one that works hard. You can tell that they have a lot to learn. Again, I think the biggest thing from high school to college is just the technique. It’s so much different. For some of these guys, they’ve been coached, but they might not have had the extensive coaching they’re getting here and all the meeting time and everything else. How do they take it from the meeting room to the field and then when they get a little bit tired in the up tempo that we go, can they manage that. Overall I’m very pleased with the group. Those guys will separate themselves, but I’m very pleased with what I’ve seen so far.”

      On if adding more pads adds more intensity to practice:

      “I thought we had pretty good intensity yesterday. Here’s the thing, I’m never going to be satisfied after we get out here and everything because, again, I’m trying to get them to understand that we are striving for perfection each and every day. We might not get there, but we’re going to strive for it. I’m still looking for us to go from start to finish without any ebbs and flows to that practice. Sometimes some sides of the ball make more plays than others, but in terms of that consistent effort running to the ball and finishing plays on offense, that’s what we’re looking for and we’re not quite there yet. Now that we have the full pads on, all that’s going to do is allow us to a little scrimmaging, but we’ll still do some drills where we tag off and some drills where we thud. Of course today we’ll have scrimmaging, but even though we’re in full pads, other days we won’t be going live.”

      On if he saw improvement from the receivers:

      “I thought we were better in practice three and four, but still not at the level that we expect out of them. I thought we were better and we’ll continue to get better. I think the biggest thing there is once we get through Sunday; we’ll sit down as a coaching staff and say, who are our three best guys? Then come out here on Tuesday and kind of practice that way. That’s the thing we’re always looking for. Even though you’ll see some guys in the slot and see guys on the outside, it’s still a situation of who are our best three or who our best four, when you go into a four wide receiver set. Just because you see a guy at No. 2 right now, I’m not going to do too much with the depth chart until after our first scrimmage.”

      On JaJuan Delaney:

      “I think he’s playing with a little bit more effort and intensity than he did in the spring. That’s good to see and that’s what we saw in film from high school. Maybe it’s him feeling more comfortable coming off that injury. That’s one thing you’ve got to take a look at, or at least I do, from the standpoint that he might have not felt so comfortable cutting it loose in the spring. Now I see a guy who is starting to cut it loose more. He’s being more physical. Like all those young kids, he’s just got to get more consistent. That’s the one thing he’s lacking right now is consistency. All the young kids, especially the lineman, it’s the technique. At this level you’ve got to be able to punch and keep the hands in. Too many of them are going in and trying to hug the bear. Those are some of the big thing that we’re concentrating on with those young linemen.”

      On Jeremiah Johnson:

      “I thought he was a little bit rusty as we first got started. You could start to see him get a little more comfortable and more confident. When you come off the toe and you come off the hamstring, that’s probably natural. Then you come out here and you do all the things that you did before. I like the progress that he’s making and he’s just going to continue to get better and like I said, he hasn’t had any ill effects with the toe or with the hamstring, which is good.”

      Dave Brock ready for 2nd year at the helm of the University of Delaware Football Squad



      By David A. Willauer-Contributing Editor-Tubby Raymond Field at Delaware Stadium-University of Delaware-Newark, DE-Sunday, August 10, 2014: On a warm football media day that was held at Delaware Stadium, second year head coach Dave Brock is ready for the upcoming season at the University of Delaware along with his Multiple Magic Offense that he runs and a 4-3 defense to stop the run and after a 2013 record at 7-5 he along with the football squad hope to improve a with a lot of confidence so their goal is to make the 2014 FCS Subdivisional Football playoffs but before the season CAA season starts their season opener on Saturday, August 31, 2014 on the home stadium of the Pittsburgh Steelers where they will face the Pittsburgh Panthers a very competitive ACC opponent
      Coach Brock returns a total of 68 letterwinners 30 on offense, 32 on defense along with 6 kickers and specialist. The key fact is the need to replace the graduated Andrew Pierce who set a lot of Blue Hen All Purpose Yards record. They return 13 starters 6 on offense and defense along with 1 kicker/specialist.
      Dave Brock on his 2nd year on the upcoming football season at Delaware: "When you talk about program goals you certainly want to be a playoff team as I have discussed with the players is to be the best team in the Colonial Athletic Association and we are one of the best teams in the country as our goal to reach the NCAA championship that is what I expect so far we think that the playoffs at Delaware in how the bar is set." "Trent Hurley did a nice job for us last season but I look at different areas of our offense that has put us in a position with a 5th year qb (Hurley) which finds our team to find a way to win as Trent is top person in pass efficiency and he is ready to go for us." Jalen Randolph is a good running back along with breaking tackles and Wes Hills will see his debut at rb this year they are very explosive then will evaluate some freshman."
      "Michael Johnson at wide receiver is one of the best receivers in the nation we anticipate him to play like that as we expect him to play well with the statistics that he had last year along with making the big plays for us which put us in a position to win games we expect Mike to get a lot of touches with the ball make the most of it he is in great shape and has worked hard during the offseason to improve himself for 2014." "At the scrimmage yesterday we saw some good tight end kids in fr Jake Powell and Brandon Whaley both kids are 6'4 and 6"5 they are going to be a huge asset to our program."
      "Patrick Calloway led us in tackles last season he is productive he didn't get a lot of reps but has played so much football and made a lot of plays we need to get a look of other defensive players Derek Battle who has been on this squad for 4 years but needs the playing time." "We also have David Mackel did a good job for us as we got him in a new defensive position he is in shape and not injured I am really excited about him."
      "Our offensive line is the toughest thing for us to get going in camp this year it is determined on working together Zack Kerr and JD Dzurka started for us last year Connor Bozick played a lot for us we feel like that we have 3 returners on the front Will Lewis is a new player that we have to develop at offensive tackle and Brody Kern will help us at center and is a red shirt freshman there are no other options and is a talented person."
      "The first game at Pittsburgh for us is a great opportunity for our football program as we take on the ACC tough schools that will help us to prepare for the CAA season and I am looking forward to play at Heinz Field."

      Former Dover High product Brian Bossard returns home to coach University of Delaware Blue Hens as wide receivers coach for 3rd time


      By David A. Willauer-Contributing Editor-Tubby Raymond Field at Delaware Stadium-Newark, DE-August 10, 2014-Bryan Bossard a former product out of Dover High School and at the University of Delaware returns home to his native state as a wide receivers coach for 2nd year head coach Dave Brock.
      The former Senator from Dover High School played both tailback and defensive linebacker and with the Blue Hens as a cornerback from 1985-88 under former head coach Tubby Raymond has earned the Most Valuable Player Award and graduated in 1989 with a Agricultural Business Management Degree.  From there, Bossard  has coached at Bucknell twice and just recently from 2010-13 under former Blue Hen standout and head coach Joe Susan, Pittsburgh, Maryland, Army, Wyoming, West Chester and Morehouse College.
      I'm very excited that Coach Brock gave me a call asked if I was interested and I said extremely it is good to come back home as my wife Kimber is a Glasgow High graduate she is a Delaware grad everywhere I would look this is my first Saturday here to enjoy the Delaware football tradition." 
      "At the scrimmage we have got some great talent on our squad it is good to see the hitting along with the players competing our freshman I like how hard they compete there is nothing for you to compare to college football this is the learning curve in how you have to be along with a long process."
      "I like all the receivers had plays we are still in the evaluation process in looking on who is going to do what in different positions my biggest concern is what you did yesterday is can you put the scrimmages on tape can you replicate good days consistently."  "It is pretty simple game that is where the stress factor comes it is good to see Michael Johnson, 2013 All CAA and All American all the guys have been around he is a for real good football player and I'm glad he is wearing Blue and Gold I enjoy watch him (Michael Johnson)playing on the gridiron."
      "At Dover High where I lettered as a running back and I have pride from Kent County I'm a downstate person I don't care if it's an upstate team as I consider Middletown to be an upstate team in which they are not I have pride in Kent County as I hear they are going to tear down the old Dover High School on Pat Lynn Drive which is a sad moment which is a part of my growth and has helped me to mature on the football field as where I am right now people who love Delaware are from The First State a little which is Blue Collar  state my brother lives outside of Philadelphia where share things that I tell him that Delaware is for me not for him but I am excited to be back and to help rekindle that Coach Raymond has instilled in me I have a lot of my former teammates that I had played with are back and to come watch the football practices hopefully they can get a view there is the Delaware way this is what we do and it is good seeing former UD wide receiver Eddie Conti is moving back into town Jammin Elliott, current Colts linebacker Mike Adams and former fullback Darryl Brown are back to share with the current players on the tradition of what Delaware football this is a Blue Hen family."

The schedule is very challenging, highlighted with an opener against the reigning Division I state Champions, followed by the Div I runner-up in week 2 and the Div II champions in week 3. We will need to develop quickly to be ready and will need to continue improving as the season moves into conference play.
