Lauren's First and Goal Football Camps  

The dates for the 2015 Lauren's First and Goal Football Camps are:

Sunday, June 7, 2015 at Lafayette College in Easton, PA
Sunday, June 14, 2015 at Otterbein University in Westerville (Columbus), OH.

Lauren’s First and Goal Football Camp is a one-day instructional clinic that is taught by volunteer college coaches from across the
country and all divisions. The PA camp is the largest one-day camp in the country, with over 325 college coaches donating their time and talents.  The OH camp is growing, and is staffed by over 100 college coaches representing more than 75 different colleges and universities.

A complete list of coaches who volunteered last year is available on our web site: www.lfgf.org.   The player to coach ratio is better than 6:1. Players are grouped by position and class year, and alternate between offensive and defensive drills and skills throughout the day. Players may also elect to work with the kicking specialist coaches for the day, or alternate between kicking and another position.  The camp is not a combine-- there is no height/weight measurements, no timed run, etc. It is an opportunity to learn, improve skills, showcase talents, experience being coached by college coaches and be exposed to
the opportunities to continue one’s career as a student athlete at the college level. ALL proceeds from the camp benefit pediatric
brain tumor research and cancer services.

Additionally, his average yards per reception (18.6) is the highest among Tribe players with more than 75 career catches.  He also is the school record holder in 100-yard receiving games in career (21) and had at least two catches in 44 consecutive games – every career start.   He is the single game record holder for receptions (13 vs. URI, 2003) and he is the only player in school history to post two, 1,000-yard receiving seasons (two – 2001-02).

His sophomore year (2001) is simply one of greatest single-season performances in school history, as he AVERAGED 23.6 yards a catch over 56 receptions for 1,393 yards and 12 TDs (team also won league title).

Musinski is the only receiver in school history to be named to First-Team All-League honors three straight years (2001-03) and be named Rookie of the Year (2000) – he  graduated with total of 5 all-league honors (3rd Team Return Specialist in 2002).

He was as a First-Team Coaches Association All-American in 2003 and accounted for 39% of team’s TOTAL receiving yards during the four-year span of his career.  Brought in 43% of team’s total receiving yards over his last three seasons (2001-03) and ended his career third all-time in career punt return yardage (538 on 55 attempts; 9.8 yards per attempt – currently ranks 4th). 

The Tribe was 13-8, all-time, when he broke 100-yard barrier and he went over the 100-yards barrier 19 times in last 32 career games. An incredible 141 of his last 185 career catches went for first downs (76.2 percent).He never missed a start in his 44 game career and was named team captain in senior year (2003).

 

In the league record books, he graduated as CAA’s all-time leader in career receiving yards (4,168) – Currently 2nd, while his 224 career receptions ranked seventh (no longer in Top 10).  His 31 career TDs receptions ranked tied for seventh all-time (now 9th) and his 116.1 yds per game average in 2001 ranked as the fourth-best single season in league history (now ranks sixth).

SKURSKY LEADS WARRIORS TO 28-7 VICTORY OVER PITTSTON AREA

TIMES LEADER

 

YATESVILLE — Those Pittston Area fans who decided to file out of chilly Charley Trippi Stadium during the fourth quarter didn’t miss much. What happened before they left happened after they were gone.

And that was Wyoming Area senior running back Jeff Skursky being pounded at the Patriots defense again and again and again.

Skursky rushed 38 times for 236 yards and four touchdowns as the Warriors defeated their cross-river rivals 28-7 Saturday evening.

Skursky’s 236 yards were the second-highest total he’s had for a single game, topped only by a 284-yard effort last year. His 38 carries fell three shy of the 41 he had last year against GAR.

Both teams concluded their seasons at 3-7.

“Nothing could be more greater than this victory,” Skursky said. “I don’t know how to express it. It’s the greatest feeling in the world to end your senior season with a victory over your rivals across the bridge. This makes up for all the losses.”

Skursky’s performance took all the suspense out of which player would be giving the Carmen Falcone Award presented for the past 37 years to the game’s MVP. Even Pittston Area coach Jim Norris waited for his chance to congratulate Skursky.

“This game is always played really competitively by both sides,” Wyoming Area coach Randy Spencer said. “You look at the record of the series and it’s a one-game, two-game gap. It is that type of rivalry and the kids raise their level to play at the highest potential.”

Skrusky noticed that from his linemen — center Cade Bekanich, guards David Vincent and Frank Yurek, tackles Justin Steinberger and Nick Shedlock and tight ends Dante Deluca and Jeremy Stach.

“Our line came out and blocked better than they have all year,” Skursky said.

Overshadowed by Skursky’s exploits was a gutsy performance by Pittston Area senior quarterback Kyle Gattuso. With the backfield depleted by injuries, Gattuso did the bulk of the rushing, gaining 111 yards on 25 carries. He also passed for 127, having his hands in all but four of the Patriots’ yards. All this despite being helped off the field in the fourth quarter.

“Kyle is a pure football player,” Norris said. “He has a ton of passion for the game. He is going to enjoy the game in college wherever he gets an opportunity to play. I’m happy for a guy like him to have the opportunity to play at the next level because he deserves it.”

The game started off well for Pittston Area as Wyoming Area fumbled the opening kickoff and John McDonald pounced on the ball at the Warriors 28-yard line. Gattuso scored five plays later.

After that, it was all Wyoming Area. The Warriors responded with a 10-play drive with Skursky carrying the ball nine times, including a 1-yard TD run.

The Patriots then drove deep into Wyoming Area territory, but disaster struck on the second play of the second quarter. Linebacker Robert Wargo cut in front of a pass in the left flat and returned the interception 61 yards. A horse-collar tackling penalty moved the ball to the Patriots 14. Three plays later, Skursky was in the end zone again.

The Warriors finished off the half with an 11-play drive that covered 87 yards. A 17-yard pass from Ryan Gorki to A.J. Lenkaitis placed the ball at the 2 where Skursky carried it in.

Skursky added a 1-yard TD run on Wyoming Area’s first possession of the third quarter.

NOTE: The fieldhouse at the stadium was dedicated to former Pittston Area coach Bob Barbieri before the game. Barbieri coached the Patriots from their inaugural season in 1966 to 1988. He spoke at halftime surrounded by many of his former players.
