This type of story must certainly end any doubt of the recruiting power of having Bagnoli (the winningest coach in Ivy League history) at our helm. A Leaders attract A players and A coaches. It's infectious.

While I am cautious about this season, I am fully optimistic about the near future.

In addition to Al, I think the Poppe family are BC alums.

I should clarify: I didn't mean to say Al is a BC alum, just that he is well respected there. The Poppe boys are BC grads.

PPS, is Coach Fabish also a BC guy?

So Princeton football was not recruiting him, just their wrestling program? Or did we actually beat them out for him for football?

I meant to ask if we beat them out for him for football, too? Why woud their football program not be recruiting him?
