ON CAMPUS A look at the area college sports scene

Thursday, August 28, 2008

Opening day

Some people count down the hours and minutes until pitchers and catchers report to spring training. For me, there is not a day I look forward to from a sports standpoint than opening night of college football season. Well, it is here.

Obviously UConn's first game against Hofstra is garnering plenty of attention in these parts but followers of the New Haven area football scene may be interested in updates on some former stars.

Bruce Campbell, a former Register Area Football Most Valuable Player out of Hyde, is second on the depth chart at left offensive tackle for Maryland which opens Saturday at 3:45 p.m. against Delaware. Three of his former Hyde teammates are also playing for Bowl Championship Subdivision teams (or Division I-A if you prefer).

Willie Harriott is No. 2 on the depth chart at left cornerback for Penn State which plays Coastal Carolina Saturday at noon.

Temple, which plays at Army Friday at 7 p.m., includes Dy'Onne Crudup, a second-string receiver and former UConn commit James Nixon, who was not on the two-deep chart but is also listed as a receiver.

New Haven's Chris Vaughn is a second-string receiver at Louisville which plays Sunday at 3:30 p.m. against Kentucky.

Former Amity star Ted Czepiga is No. 2 on the depth chart at outside linebacker for Florida Atlantic which plays Texas Saturday at 7 p.m.
