Andrew MacDougall of the Boston Globe has a feature on UMass football quarterback Blake Frohnapfel and the year he has had so far for the Minutemen. Frohnapfel is one of the national passing leaders entering the weekend and has turned the UMass offense into one of the best in the Mid-American Conference.

Matt Vautour of the Daily Hampshire Gazette has a story today on how freshman QB Ross Comis helped the Minutemen prepare for dual-threat Eastern Michigan QB Reginald Bell during the week. Comis along with Elgin Long and Shaquille Harris all split time running the scout team offense this week to help prepare the Minutemen for the speed of Bell.

Congratulations to former UMass netminder Jonathan Quick who tied Rogie Vachon's L.A. Kings franchise record with his 32nd career shutout last night, making 43 saves and stopping all three St. Louis shootout attempts. Quick makes 43 saves to help Kings edge Blues

Andrew Cyr of the Daily Collegian takes a look at how dual-threat Reginald Bell, Jr., poses a threat for the UMass defense and what the keys are to contain the quarterback after he had a break out game against Buffalo last week.

Victor Pusateri of the Daily Collegian has a feature on freshman tennis player Ana Yrazusta who is off to a strong start for the Minutewomen. Yrazusta admits that the transition from Las Palmas, Spain to Massachusetts has been a challenge, but that having several international teammates has helped in her first few months away from home.
