Sophomore quarterback Cameron MacPherson announced his transfer this past weekend, moving back home to a school where his family name is still part of football legend.
The grandson of former Syracuse coach Dick MacPherson will walk on as a tight end for the Orangemen, reports the Syracuse Post-Standard, noting that Georgetown planned to move him out of the QB depth chart. MacPherson played in two games in 2013 behind senior Isaiah Kempf and sophomore Kyle Nolan.
Georgetown generally does not comment on transfers. The Hoyas' last notable transfer was WR Kevin Macari, who transferred to Delaware before last season.
Excerpts from Kevin Kelly's final e-letter of the season, posted at GUHoyas.com:
"I wanted to thank all of the alums and parents for their unwavering support of this team through a tough season. I was proud of the way our guys fought until the end, to get a 28-21 win against Holy Cross. They could have given up after we fell out of contention to win the Patriot League, but as I have said many times before, there are a lot of high character guys in our locker room and they have continued to prove that every week.
"I was especially happy for our 24 seniors to go out with a win. Their contributions to this program will be remembered for a long time and it's nice that their last memory in a Georgetown uniform will be walking off the field with a win. It was also something for all of our returners to build on. Baseline testing for our winter training program - which begins January 9 - is this week, so the guys are already starting to prepare for the 2014 season.
"Last week, five of our student-athletes were selected to the All Patriot League first and second team. Dustin Wharton earned first team honors, while Dan Sprotte, Nick Alfieri, Alec May and Jordan Richardson were all named to the second team. Each is very deserving of the recognition and they all serve as great representations of what this program is all about. Alec was also named to the Patriot League All-Academic Team, which is a great award, showing he is the true embodiment of the term, student-athlete.
"The coaching staff is hard at work on the road recruiting and getting ready for official visit weekend on January 13."
Five members from the 2013 Georgetown football team received all-Patriot league honors in a post season list released Nov. 26.
Senior LB Dustin Wharton was named to the first team defense, while second team honors were received by TE Daniel Sprotte, DLs Alec May and Jordan Richardson, and LB Nick Alfieri.
Fordham dominated the list, with 11 first team selections, 18 overall, and three of the four individual awards (offensive player of the year, defensive player of the year, and coach of the year).
Recaps of all the games from the 2013 season are archived at the 2013 Games In Review page.
