Football Team to Scrimmage Hobart College Tomorrow

Print More

It’s official: football season has arrived. ESPN aired its first college football broadcast last night, and local football fans will get their first chance of the year to see the Cornell team in intersquad action tomorrow at noon on Schoellkopf field when the Red will play a scrimmage against Hobart College. In last week’s intrasquad scrimmage, head coach Jim Knowles and his staff polished up the team’s depth chart and shed some light on the ongoing position battles of the preseason. Senior Ben Ganter was named the team’s starting quarterback at the first practice of the preseason, and it appears that senior Randy Barbour will be the team’s featured back for the second year in a row. Senior Bryan Walters returns to the receiving corps, joined by seniors Horatio Blackman and Nick Zerante; sophomore wideout Shane Savage also impressed in the spring game.
