UNH Football Back to School Survival Kit


#leadingthecharge — Okay class, settle down and be seated. Yesterday we covered penalties. Today we will focus on the offense. The Chargers’ passing attack opens everything else up. Scores in the 40s and 50s have become commonplace when the blue and gold step onto the field. As we approach the Chargers’ first exam on Saturday at Ralph DellaCamera Stadium against Merrimack, let’s take a look at some things UNH will need to do in order to ensure another Northeast-10 title.

BOMBS AWAY: Senior quarterback Ryan Osiecki passed for 3,336 yards last season. That was good for seventh in the country among Division II QBs and a UNH single-season record. Senior wide receiver Jason Thompson finished 2011 with 1,046 receiving yards and ranked 41st in the country among Division II WRs, averaging 80.46 receiving yards per game. With possession receiver Josh Smart and the speedy senior Demetrius “Meet” Washington-Ellison back, the Chargers should enjoy continued success in the air. In the short game, running back Mike DeCaro and senior tight end Kameel Lashley are good for some yards after the catch.

Keep checking here all week for more on what the Chargers will need to do in order to capture another NE-10 title in the inaugural NE-10 Championship Game on Nov. 10. Also, visit the blog on Friday for a comprehensive UNH season preview.
