Hurricane Impacts East Coast Games

With the track of Hurricane Matthew somewhat uncertain, at least two college football programs have changed their schedule for this weekend’s games. Colonial Athletic Association member Elon (of North Carolina) has moved their game with New Hampshire to Friday night, as has Old Dominion, who will now face UMass that evening in Virginia.

University of Maine officials have talked about the possible conditions with officials at Delaware but have decided to go ahead and play their game Saturday afternoon at 3:30 p.m.

Yesterday brought good news for former Black Bear Trevor Bates. The Westbrook native was called up from the practice squad and added to the active roster of the Indianapolis Colts. Bates was chosen by Indy in the seventh round of this year’s NFL Draft.

About Rich Kimball

I’ve been a broadcaster in the area for more than four decades, starting at WABI/WBGW Radio and WABI-TV while still in high school. Through the years I’ve done news, sports, and even weather on various TV stations and worked at more radio stations than I can recall. For the last twenty years I’ve been the radio voice of University of Maine football and for the past five years I’ve hosted Downtown, a talk show focusing on sports and entertainment. I’ve been lucky enough to win a number of awards from the Maine Association of Broadcasters and the Associated Press but I’m especially proud to have been named Maine Sportscaster of the Year by my peers a record six times. My day job is teaching social studies at Brewer High School, where I’ve also been the drama director for over twenty years, and I’m one of the co-founders of the improvisational comedy team, The Focus Group.
