Two Lehigh football players were recently named to the offensive and defensive positional watch lists by College Football Performance Awards (CFPA) heading into the 2013 season. Junior tight end Tyler Coyle was selected on the offensive side of the ball, while senior linebacker Nigel Muhammad represents the defense.
Former Lehigh standouts Ryan Snyder and Mike Noone were recently picked up by Major League Lacrosse teams, Snyder joining the first-place Denver Outlaws and Noone heading to the Ohio Machine. Snyder has been added to the active roster and will back up Anthony Kelly at the faceoff X while Noone is on Ohio’s practice squad, but could join the active roster at a moment’s notice.
