Tom Masella, Tim Cary, Nick Womack, and Darryl Whiting join us.
Monday Night Quarterback returns to wfuv.org on the heels of Fordham’s 21-14 victory over Columbia on Saturday afternoon in the 10th annual Liberty Cup Game. The Rams used five sacks, a 100-yard interception returned for a touchdown, and a last second defensive effort to post its first win of 2011. With Saturday’s triumph, Fordham has now won six of the first 10 Liberty Cup Games contested since the hardware was introduced in 2002 in remembrance of those affiliated with both Universities who lost their lives in the attacks of September 11, 2001.
Fordham Head Coach Tom Masella will once again be the cornerstone of the program which will air as a podcast on wfuv.org beginning each Monday evening at 8:30 PM. Coach Masella is in his sixth season as the Rams head coach, a tenure that has produced a league title and a trip to the FCS playoffs, both coming in 2007.
In addition to Coach Masella, each week Monday Night Quarterback will feature a separate member of the coaching staff on the “Inside the Playbook” portion of the program. This week we sat down with Fordham Defensive Backs Coach Tim Cary. This season Cary begins his second consecutive fall as a member of the Rams staff. Coach Cary breaks down the play of Fordham’s secondary over the first two weeks of the season and takes us inside the week-to-week preparation inherent within college football.
On Saturday afternoon, Nick Womack set a Fordham record with a 100-yard interception return for a touchdown. His momentous play tied the game in the first half and provided the emotional boost that catapulted the Rams to their first win this season. Nick joined us on the first edition of Monday Night Quarterback and spoke about his mad dash and also touched on the development of many of the underclassmen on Fordham’s defense.
One of the Rams offensive leaders this season will undoubtedly be senior running back Darryl Whiting. The East Elmhurst, NY native carried the ball 18 times in the week two victory and gained 100 yards on the ground. Whiting addressed his breakout performance and also touched on necessary improvements going forward.
The third season of Monday Night Quarterback will be offered as a podcast each Monday evening and will be available on wfuv.org beginning at 8:30 PM. You can also hear the highlight podcast of each Saturday’s game by following the necessary link.
