Meeting Report for 11/4/2022
Imagine being a college football coach and doing such a “great”
job, that the school drops football. That’s what happened to
Delaware Coach Terence Archer, Assistant Head Coach and
Wide Receivers coach, when he served at LaSalle. Landing on
his feet, Coach Archer told us about his experiences at Monmouth
and Sam Houston State before returning to be a part of Ryan
Carty’s staff. A New Jersey native, Coach Archer said his return
to the east coast was a no brainer as he has family here and his
mother-in-law is a UD alum.
He also had a reunion of sorts last Saturday as his collegiate
playing days were at Monmouth under Coach Callahan.
Explaining his desire to exploit some of the issues Monmouth was
having on defense, Coach Archer was looking forward to pushing
the offense against the Hawks and his former coach. It appears
that he and the offensive staff was successful!
He let us know that the captains spoke to the team after the Elon
loss stressing that the team needs to bring their own energy to an
away game. I have a feeling this “flatness” will not travel to
Asking for only easy questions, Delaware Hall of Fame inductee
and former star defensive back for the Hens, Sidney Haugabrook (pictured above)
told us about his experience as a southerner (he’s from Atlanta)
playing football in the northeast. The biggest obstacle was that
his northern teammates had issues understanding his “accent”
while yelling instructions on the field! After a career in the CFL
and the Arena Football League, Sidney is now a sales rep for
Milwaukee Tools and keeps close contact with UD with the
Touchdown Club’s own Barbara Owens.
Stating that her experience at Penn State pushed her to be a
better coach, Head women’s basketball coach Sarah Jenkins
gave the Club a preview of the women’s basketball season.
Coming home to UD after Coach Adair left to go to Arizona State
following the team’s 2021-22 conference championship, Coach
Jenkins let us know that she wants to stay here for the rest of her
life and implored anyone in the audience who knows our AD
Chrissi Rawak to “talk to her” to make her dream a reality!
This year’s team is learning to play together as two first year
students and five transfers join a core of six returning players.
She won’t guarantee that they will shoot well but the team is really
good at doing cartwheels! Not sure if any cartwheels were
performed but Coach Jenkins debut game as head coach was
eminently successful as they scored a victory over Longwood 82-
62. It appears that the women can shoot the ball as they hit 49%
from the field including 46% from beyond the arc and 81% from
the free throw line.
Head coach for the men’s basketball team, Martin Ingelsby
previewed his team of 10 returning players, 3 transfers and 3
freshmen. The NCAA tournament taste last year has the team
working to continually improve toward February and March with
sights on a return to the Big Dance. When asked about the
transfer portal, Coach Ingelsby said he probably wasted too much
time on trying to convince those entering the portal to remain at
UD. The team has benefited from incoming transfers and he and
his staff will continue to attack the portal aggressively and “recruit
like hell”. The team had a successful start this past Monday with
a home victory over Wilmington University.
