What We're Reading on Sunday Morning

F&M Shuts Down McDaniel
"John Troxell's life as head coach of the Franklin & Marshall football team is more than just X's and O's. He has to recruit, nurture his players and, oh, yeah, be a husband and father. Troxell's 5-year-old daughter dropped a bowl on her foot while trick-or-treating Friday night and had to be looked at by the team trainer after the Diplomats took on the Green Terror of McDaniel Saturday afternoon at Sponaugle-Williamson Field. The news was good for both his daughter and his Dips, who shut out McDaniel, 20-0, to improve to 4-4 on the season and 3-3 in the Centennial Conference."

Terror Torched by Big Plays
"It certainly wasn’t the first time a team looked across the field at the McDaniel defense unafraid. The Green Terror have been beaten by strong-armed quarterbacks, speedy wide receivers, quick tailbacks, athletes of all kinds. And before settling down to pitch a second-half shutout, McDaniel saw more of the same unfold Saturday. A young but talented freshman quarterback and a couple of athletic wideouts picked apart the Terror one big play at a time for a 20-0 Franklin & Marshall win at Sponaugle-Williamson Field in Lancaster, Pa."

Diplomats Score in First Half, Blank McDaniel
"Midway through the first quarter, Franklin & Marshall wide receiver Jarrell Diggs received a pitch from quarterback John Harrison. With McDaniel's defense steaming toward him, Diggs threw a prayer to wide receiver George Eager, who ran untouched for a 65-yard touchdown as F&M (4-4, 3-3 Centennial Conference) shut out the Green Terror 20-0 at Lancaster."

Bruised and Battered 'Hounds Outlast Ursinus
"The game was barely four minutes old when Moravian College's starting tailback, the third-leading rusher in the Centennial Conference, was on the sideline, his right ankle wrapped in ice. By the time 101 seconds of the second quarter had ticked away, the Greyhounds quarterback was strapped to a backboard en route to a local hospital, sent there by a late sideline hit. Instead of unraveling, however, the Greyhounds held together for a 17-7 Centennial Conference victory over Ursinus at Rocco Calvo Field."
