Matty V. has a report on the Minuteman's latest scrimmage.

Matty V reports that true Freshman Blake Lucas is neck and neck with Brandon Levengood for kicking.

Jeff Strait is competing with JUCO Colter Johnson.

I appreciate the fact that Victor is doing quite well in his pro career, it promotes Umass Football but, can we hear a little more about the current players? Todays article didn't even mention the defense.. We are hearing about the same players over and over again.. 22 starters are needed at game time...
