Gathering of Former Players
I was informed by one of my fellow letterwinners that the Football Letterwinners Association will be having a picnic at 3:30PM on April 25th prior to the annual Spring Game. As a result, I would like to modify the plans and invite all former football Scarlet Knights to Athlete's Glenn at 3:30PM.
Please spread the word. It would be great to see everyone again.
Clinics and Camps

Then, with the help of our professional staff, you will build your own individualized technique to maximize your ability.
Former Rutgers standout and 2002 first-round draft pick Bobby Brownlie (Edison, NJ) has been assigned to the Daytona Cubs and will make his professional debut next week. He is expected to make his first start on either Monday or Tuesday of next week, when Daytona faces the Port Saint Lucie Mets.
Brownlie Headed To Daytona Cubs For First Professional Start
Sophomore Jack Egbert (Rutherford, NJ) and junior Shaun Parker (Westampton, NJ) turned in outstanding pitching efforts as Rutgers swept a key, BIG EAST doubleheader from Boston College, 4-2 and 7-3, in baseball action at the Class of 53 Baseball Complex. In the opener, Rutgers rebounded from a quick, 2-0 deficit to rally for the win, while in the second game, a three-run home run in the second inning by Jeff Grose (Iselin, NJ) sparked the offense. Rutgers, which has now won nine of its last 10 conference games, improves to 16-4 overall, 10-3 in league play, while BC is 18-16, 5-7. Rutgers also remains a ½-game back of first-place Notre Dame, which swept a doubleheader from Seton Hall this afternoon.
Egbert and Parker Pitch Rutgers to Sweep of Boston College
Stingy defense and bulldog-like pitching carried the day for the Rutgers baseball team on Saturday, as the Scarlet Knights swept their second Big East doubleheader of the week, defeating Boston College by the scores of 4-2 and 7-3.
Rutgers faced Matt Lederhos and Matt Elfeldt, missing BC's vaunted 1-2 punch of Chris Lambert and Kevin Shepard, who pitched on Thursday against Notre Dame. Lederhos is a double threat for the Eagles, starting the first game in right field and hitting cleanup in both games.

Where are there now?
Rutgers last football Big East victory was fueled by an overtime kick by Lee McDonald, which capped an upset victory over Syracuse at Rutgers Stadium.
Where is he now? He earned his masters at Rutgers and is now an Academic Advisor for the Rutgers football team. In addition, he and former Rutgers punter Charlie Titus hold Kicking Clinics around New Jersey.

Around Big East
On the fifth day of being the head men's basketball coach at the University of Pittsburgh, Jamie Dixon is doing what he always has done best -- hit the recruiting trail.
He is scheduled to be in Houston this weekend to watch an AAU tournament, and next weekend he plans to check out an AAU tournament either in Houston, Las Vegas or Maryland. Coaches aren't allowed to talk to players at these tournaments, but they can visit them at their high school during the week.
Pitt's Dixon digs into recruiting chores
The Syracuse University football team has at least two other quarterbacks on its roster playing other positions that it might turn to in a pinch.
That's a possibility now that the Orangemen are down to two quarterbacks on scholarship this spring following the knee injury to redshirt freshman Perry Patterson.
Orange calling all QBs
The stunning knee injury to Syracuse University redshirt freshman quarterback Perry Patterson this week creates a delicate and challenging predicament for head coach Paul Pasqualoni and his staff.
The football Orangemen must keep incumbent quarterback R.J. Anderson healthy while running an offense that cannot live by tailbacks Walter Reyes and Damien Rhodes alone.
