College football: Local products look to keep Bloomsburg University in right direction


Now for the Huskies it's about erasing the disappointing endings to the last two seasons. Bloomsburg started 2011 at 7-0, but lost back-to-back games late in the season to miss the NCAA Division II playoffs.

That was followed by a 2012 season that saw the Huskies undefeated again until a trip to Shippensburg and a 49-42 loss ended their hopes of a home playoff game. Forced to travel to Shippensburg once again in the first round of the division to playoffs Bloomsburg fell behind big early ending their season with a 58-20 defeat.

"We obviously want to improve on last season," Steck said. "We can only focus on one game at a time but Shippensburg of course is in the back of our heads."

Wenrich echoed those sentiments.

"Halloween night is circled on our calendars," Wenrich said. "We can't look ahead though we have to stay focused."

The Huskies and Red Raiders are scheduled for an 8 p.m. kickoff at Redman Stadium on Thursday October, 31st. The game is set to be televised on CBS Sports Network.

Two other local players will be vying for playing time this year for the Huskies. Milton High graduate Domair Anderson is a redshirt freshman fullback. Former Shikellamy quarterback and safety Garrett Pope has made a position switch for the Huskies. He's moved to linebacker. Pope made three special teams tackles a year ago.
