A Full Days Work

The BA football team had an early start today as they kick the season off. With a full day of practices the team worked hard. Coach Marcella is excited about the upoming season and had good things to say about his team. "I'd say we have some decent size,athleticism and speed. Pre-season camp is all about the coaches
putting the players in position to make plays. We never seem to have
enough time to evaluate them but we always manage to put a competitive
team on the field."

The football team will start of their season with a home opener against Curry College at 1:00 on September 12th. Playing for Curry are recent BA alumni Phillip Bigelow ’10 and Patrick Hickey ‘10.
