Char Valley Grad Eager to Return


Koch, Joe, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (Pittsburgh, PA)


It might be a new conference for the Case Western Reserve University football team, but for Chartiers Valley High School graduate Sean Lapcevic, it will be business as usual as the Spartans begin dual membership in the Presidents Athletic Conference and the University Athletic Association along with fellow UAA member Carnegie Mellon.

The Spartans and the Tartans open the season at 7 p.m. on Sept. 6 in Cleveland in the 29th annual Academic Bowl. The Spartans also will continue to play UAA members Chicago and Washington University of St. Louis along with the Presidents Athletic Conference rivals. A year ago, Case Western defeated Carnegie Mellon, 35-32, at the Tartans' Gesling Stadium.

"This year will be more of a run-oriented offense," he said. "Erik Olson [last year's starting QB] was more of a drop-back passer. I'm not exactly sure what to expect from the offense, but there will be a lot more running and more option plays.

"[Beecher] is a running threat, and he can keep plays alive. Sometimes on pass plays, those are the biggest plays if a play is broken, he might have to run the ball. He presents that duel threat for the offense."

Running the ball could pay off well for the speedy Lapcevic. …
