UMass Football News--July 12th, 2017


As everyone expected Adam Breneman was named to the John Mackey award watch list.

There's a .pdf download from the John Mackey Award people here.

The Centre Daily times mentions Breneman as well as current Penn State TE Mike Gisicki.

Former UMass player and current Kennesaw State Associate AD Vaughn Williams is moving back to Boston College.

Earlier in the year, Williams was named the Under Armour 2017 Director of the Year. Williams was a four-year letter winner for the Minutemen (1988, '89,'90 and 1991).

Speaking of the Eagles, SB Nation thinks Boston College needs an offense. After Don Brown left, the BC defense was still stout under Jimmie Reid. The Eagles were #7 in the nation in rushing defense and #9 in total defense. The offense, however was #118 in scoring and #127 in total offense.

UMass scored 35 points against Mississippi State at Gillette last year. Bulldog coach Dan Mullen says Mississippi State's defense will be different this year.

Just a point of correction, Vaughn Williams is AD at Kennesaw State not an Associate AD.
