Wolpack Weekly The Wolfpack are excited about the upcoming football season. Colin Kaepernick is returning for his SR campaign and he is up to the challenge of leading a very opportunistic ball club. FIRST TEAM ALL AMERICAN FIRST TEAM ALL WAC In 2009, Kaepernick had a break out year. He threw for 3397 yds and 23 Td's. He also rushed for 370 yds and added 7 more TD's. He is the corner stone to the success of the Nevada football team. When asked how he felt about the added pressure, Colin responded by saying, "It's what you play the game for. I love the opportunity to be the face of this organization." Colin will have has top three Wr's returning from a year ago. This should make the transition a lot easier. Randall will lead the Wolfpack running game in 2010. With the departure of Lippincott, the Wolfpack will depend heavily on Courtney Randall and Mike Ball to shoulder the rushing load. Neither RB had many opportunities last season, but both are equally capable. Coach Forever said they are the same kind of back. He thinks it will be running back by committee due to the consistency each back shows. Randall will get the start, but Ball will get his fair share of the workload. Brandon Wimberly skies over a would be tackler. RS Sophomore Brandon Wimberly is the leading receiver from a year ago. He posted some pretty good numbers in an offense that "spread the wealth". He lead all receivers with 6 Td's. He added 546 yds on 31 receptions for a 17.6 ypc average. He only dropped two passes the whole year. "He is as reliable as they come. To drop only two passes playing out of the slot position is very remarkable," Coach Forever said at a Meet the Player's Luncheon last week. FIRST TEAM ALL WAC Mike Gallett will anchor a solid Offensive line in 2010. He had 40 pancake blocks and gave up only 5 sacks in thirteen ball games. He wanted to go pro, but decided he wanted to increase his draft status by returning for his Senior campaign. Look for Gallet to be a key to a good Nevada team. FIRST TEAM ALL AMERICAN FIRST TEAM ALL WAC Frey leaps above potential receiver for interception. Frey will head a Nevada stingy pass defense. Junior CB Isaiah Frey leads a secondary group that wil be tested early and often in 2010. He lead the nation last year with 8 passes intercepted and 9 pass deflections. He also added 29 tackles. Frey will be called upon to shut down their opponents best receiver. 2010 OUTLOOK: In 2009, Nevada posted a 8-5 overall record with a 6-2 conference record. Nevada has 8 of their 11 starters on offense returning from a year ago. Look for the Wolfpack Offense to be, it not better, than they were last year. On the defensive side of the ball, key new comers SS Jason Ryan and Outside linbacker Mike Edmonds should help a "friendly" Wolfpack squad that gave up lots of yardage on the ground. Key Departures: RB Luke Lippincott Key Additions: SS Jason Ryan, Outside Linbacker Mike Edmonds, Tranfer Johri Fogerson(Redshirt) Paper Release Dates: Every Wednesday and Saturday.
