Gazette: Nelson To Face Familiar Faces at Stony Brook

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
When he got on the bus after the University of Massachusetts football team's game at Michigan, Minuteman senior wide receiver Anthony Nelson had a text message waiting for him.

"Hey did you hear that Steve Probst and Rhode Island upset UNH?" read the text from a former teammate.

Last year Nelson was on the receiving end of passes from Probst. The two were teammates at Hofstra, before the Long Island school discontinued its program. The players with eligibility remaining scattered to other schools, including many in the Colonial Athletic Association. Nelson and freshman offensive linemen Anthony Dima transferred to UMass.

Nelson keeps track of how his former teammates are faring online.
