Patriots coach Bill Belichick will be inducted into the Wesleyan University Hall of Fame in a ceremony today. Wesleyan's official website has more on the induction. Marathon great Bill Rodgers is also part of the induction class.
Over the weekend, Belichick will return home, with plans to be a spectator at the NCAA Division I Lacrosse Final Four at Gillette Stadium. Belichick spoke about his thoughts on lacrosse in a Boston Globe piece today.
A few other leftovers from Belichick:
On the team's passing camp earlier this week. "We’re in the beginning stages, clearly we have a long way to go. We’ve done a lot of individual type of things, meeting with players, focusing on individual skills – pass-rush technique, route-running, footwork – and then had a chance to go out and put some things together as a team and see how they look visually. We’ve added some new plays and we’re starting to see how some of those things are developing – how they look on paper vs. what they look like on the field. The players have worked hard and been receptive. We’ve made improvements in the first three days on the field, which you’d expect, and we’ll build on that in subsequent camps. You get the material installed so you can hopefully execute at a good tempo.”
On the overall attendance at the voluntary passing camp. "Some players are working on the field, some aren’t, but they’re all here, in the meetings, absorbing the information we’re giving them."
On the reception he received at the Boston Garden during Game 1 of the Celtics-Pistons series, when fans chanted "Bel-i-chick, Bel-i-chick" when he was shown on the scoreboard. "The Garden was great. It was the first game I was able to go to this year. I appreciated the fan support, the reception was awesome, even just walking in and going by people, they were very engaging and supportive. I really appreciated it.”
