Lembo Reaches Out to BSU Football Alums

It’s been said that new Cardinals head coach Pete Lembo has been working diligently his first few weeks to get the program in good standing with as many vested parties as possible. He certainly has done that with the casual fan, through his introductory press conference, basketball game interviews, and fan meet and greets around the Muncie area. He’s reached out to businesses and economic leaders through the visit with the Muncie/Delaware County Chamber of Commerce breakfast last week. He’s also taken it upon himself to reach out to the football alums, and a giant hat tip to a friend of OTP and alum of the program for passing that letter on to us for your enjoyment.

You may be asking yourself why Coach Lembo blacked out his contact info, and that’s something we did (same as the OTP logo). While information like that isn’t exceptionally difficult to find, there’s no way we’re serving it up on a silver platter for the random internet folks to have a field day with. See… blogs CAN be responsible!

Perhaps I’m making a big deal out of nothing with all of this and the public outreach that Coach Lembo has done. Perhaps I’m grasping at flimsy straws to make myself feel excited and comfortable with a new regime and fresh leadership. Perhaps I’m setting myself up for disappointment. All of the above could be true, but for now, it feels good, quite good actually, to have a coach in charge that seems to “get it”. Say what you will about his experience and FCS resume, but so far, Coach Lembo has done nothing but impress. From the recruiting class to the outreach, so far so good.
