Setting the Stage

The Red Devils return to Biddle Field to host Muhlenberg in their home opener. Both teams enjoyed strong starts last weekend and had great showings on both sides of the ball and on special teams. Muhlenberg is coming off a trip to the NCAA Playoffs as Head Coach Nate Milne earned multiple Coach of the Year honors in his first season at the helm. The Red Devils used a balanced attack to win their first season opener since 2009 and look to carry that momentum as they head immediately into Centennial Conference play this weekend.   


Scouting the Mules

The Muhlenberg football team opened up a 42-7 lead early in the second half and went on to a 45-26 win against The College of New Jersey in its 2019 season opener.

Junior Michael Hnatkowsky and senior Todd Spirt both enjoyed record days. Hnatkowsky completed 17 of 25 passes for 286 yards and five touchdowns, tying the school record for TD passes achieved five times previously.

Spirt was perfect on six extra-point tries to become the Mules' all-time career leader with 140 made PATs. He also booted a 28-yard field goal.

Despite giving up three late touchdowns, the defense held TCNJ to 14 rushing yards. Spencer Kirin added two tackles for loss to his interception, and senior Brian Raguseo recorded three tackles for loss, one of which forced a fumble.

Senior Joseph O'Hagan recorded his fifth career interception in the end zone to thwart a TCNJ scoring attempt, and junior Joshua Barnett and sophomore James McGettigan contributed to the Mules' four forced turnovers with fumble recoveries.


Scouting the Red Devils

The Dickinson football team had a great start to the 2019 season, posting a 26-14 win at Washington & Lee University.

Junior place-kicker Trystin Golowski (Columbus, N.J./Bishop Eustace) converted three field-goals and first-year Matt Moroz (Hatfield, Pa./Pope John Paul II) split the uprights from 38 yards out on his first collegiate attempt as well.

The Red Devils combined for 446 yards of total offense on the day as Tim Graham (Darien, Conn./Darien) went 15-for-25 for 306 yards passing. That ranks him fourth on the program list for passing yards in a single game.

Daniel Salamone (Great Falls, Va./Langley) and Christopher Longo (Wilton, Conn./Wilton) were on the receiving end, combining for just under 250 yards. Salamone made five catches for 129 while Longo pulled in six catches for 120 yards on the day.

Jordan Hollander (Waverly, Pa./Abington Heights) had a big day as well, averaging 42.4 yards per punt and added a nine-yard interception return to go with nine tackles.

Anthony Cicini (Berwick, Pa./Berwick) led the defense with 12 tackles, making nine solo stops. Brian Snow (Media, Pa./Episcopal) reached double-figures with 10 tackles, including nine solos.
