Game day: Long road trips

The handful of non-NESCAC teams that haven’t played yet take the field this weekend, including Mary Hardin-Baylor, Linfield, Thomas More, Cal Lutheran and Alfred. A lot of those games involve significant trips, as well as trips by Ithaca, Hamline, Illinois Wesleyan.

Plus, on Friday night, SUNY-Maritime took it to an NJAC team, Catholic had a second consecutive double-digit fourth-quarter comeback and Worcester State continued crosstown rival WPI’s slow slide.

    I’m Pat Coleman, and I’m in Decorah, Iowa, where Luther is taking on former D-III and IIAC opponent William Penn. And while this is the first time I’ve been to Luther for a football game, the game itself is almost secondary.

    The big story here today is Chris Norton, who was paralyzed in a game last year as a Luther freshman. He’ll be returning to the sidelines for the Norse and will lead the team out from the locker room in his wheelchair.

    Then he will stand for the national anthem. Not bad for a young man who was not sure he would even be able to use his arms again less than a year ago.

    More from here and wherever you are. Use the hashtag #d3fb to comment via Twitter, comment here in the chat or use the blog commenting function.

    (I can’t seem to access the live chat from Luther’s restrictive wireless. This may be all I can do today.)
