HCGLC: Let's WIN!!

For those who care about Holy Cross Crusader Football, September 2011 was simply spectacular. 

1. Our Crusaders stand at 2-1 as the men get poised to take on the Top 10 ranked University of New Hampshire Wildcats this Saturday in Durham, NH. For those who have seen the team in person or via broadcast, the quality of play is outstanding. The exciting brand of football  may be only outmatched by the Purple Pride, effort, and determination displayed for 60 minutes of every game. Students of the game know a team is ultimately a reflection of its coaches. In that spirit, we can all look forward to more hard fought, well played, disciplined football atop Mt. St. James and wherever the Crusaders travel.Thank you Coach Gilmore and staff!!

"Something Very Good Going On in Worcester"

Fellow Crusaders, 

Let's dispense with the formalities and get right down to business. 

1. Our men in purple delivered an exceptionally well oiled performance this past Saturday. Congratulations to Coach Gilmore, staff, and team!! In a game that finished in less than two and a half hours, the 'saders opened league play by beating Colgate 37-7. Well done, gentlemen!!

I am not so sure the game was as close as the score indicated ;-) but for those in the stands it was pure delight and very well balanced in every regard.  

2.  There is clearly something very good going on in Worcester atop Mt. St. James . Get involved and bring friends, family, neighbors et al to Fitton Field for a great Purple brand of college football.

No Bad Press and Onward to Victory!!

Yes, for those in the public eye, like Holy Cross Football, there truly is no bad press.

On that note, I am happy to provide links from other sites talking about Crusader Football and the HCGLC. Additionally the Crusaders have a HUGE Patriot League game this coming Saturday. Let's make sure the team once again feels the support of everybody in Crusader Nation.

See you at Fitton on Saturday.

Let's Win!!

September 2, 2011: The Mission Continues...Dr. Joe Ciccone '97 Writes of Purple Pride

In the midst of speaking with some people yesterday, I referenced the fact that while some may have viewed  yesterday's activities and assorted events on Fitton Field and atop Mt. St. James as a mere football game combined with a nice ceremony, for those of us who "believe" we know it was something far bigger than that. 

Yesterday was not a culmination of efforts which generated a sparkling production. Yesterday was a point in time celebration and highlighting of who we are in the context of an ongoing and continued pursuit of our mission.
