The Lafayette Leopards will begin their Patriot League title defense in less than two months. Practices open in just weeks. Many of the Leopards are working out in Easton already, including tailback Ross Scheuerman who has some new expectations to live up to. The Sports Network has named Scheuerman a 2nd team preseason All-American after a tremendous season for the Leopards last fall. Scheuerman ran for 14 touchdowns and was especially good during league play as the Leopards won the title. The championship and his preseason honor, have made Scheuerman even more motivated this summer.
