Scott Lenahan: "I’m really concerned going into Louisville, as far as our secondary is concerned. This past weekend, Wake Forest...Campanero ate our lunch. Going in there this week, you know, we’re going to be away again. We going to be playing against a quarterback, Teddy Bridgewater, who I think is a pretty good quarterback – he’s athletic; he’s good."

Preseason Roundtable, Part I
Which of these is the bigger question mark going into fall camp, Bryn Renner, UNC’s running game, or the secondary? Scott Lenahan: No doubt about it, the biggest question mark going into camp will be the secondary. Although we do have good leadership there with Matt Merletti and a very productive player in Charlie Brown, they're still a considerably young unit and have a lot to prove.
Inside Carolina's weekly 'State of the Heels' discussion with former Tar Heels Scott Lenahan, Deems May and Mark Paschal: On Saturday the Tar Heels came out and appeared to play flat the first half.

Butch Davis Radio Show Quotes
“If you remember, last year we only had one senior in the offensive line with Scott Lenahan. This year, we’ve got Calvin Darity, Bryon Bishop and Garrett Reynolds. This next recruiting class will probably be somewhat significantly bigger. There will probably be more numbers at a variety of positions, but certainly, offensive line is one of the positions that we’re looking at for the ’09 recruiting class."
Lowell Dyer finds ways to help Heels
Deep snaps probably won't be the only time Lowell Dyer makes his way onto the field this season. After excelling at Riverside, Dyer walked-on to the UNC team in 2005. He worked his way up the depth chart until he started six games for the Tar Heels last season while Scott Lenahan was hurt. Dyer impressed the coaches to the point that he earned a full scholarship after spring practice in April.
Preseason Countdown No. 47: North Carolina
North Carolina certainly has experience on its side. The only player not returning after starting the majority of the Tar Heels' 2007 games on offense is center Scott Lenahan, who was a senior. But the Heels didn't exactly light up the scoreboard: North Carolina ranked 106th in the nation in total offense and 108th in rushing offense a year ago.
Tar Heels take upbeat approach into final stretch
The North Carolina football team is out of bowl contention, but not down and out. The Tar Heels, who play this afternoon at Georgia Tech, want to savor the final two games of the season. “I’m just happy to be playing with the guys I’m playing with,” senior center Scott Lenahan said. “We’re playing for each other, for the fans, the coaches. We’re not going to just roll over because were not bowl eligible.
Butch Davis Radio Show Quotes
“It’s always good when you talk about guys like Brooks Foster that is going to be back, and Brandon Tate that suffered a little bit of a concussion is ready to go. But getting Scott Lenahan back on the offensive line, that’s certainly going to be a big part of helping our offensive line and their efficiency. For the first time – knock on wood – in several weeks, I think we’re as healthy as we’ve been since maybe the beginning of the season.”
Monday PC Quotes & Audio
"One of the things that I kind of wanted to announce today is that the team voted on permanent captains offensively and defensively. I think that it is always enlightening a little bit because you find out about the respect that the players have for each other. The offensive captains were Garrett Reynolds and Scott Lenahan were the offensive captains. The defensive captains were Kentwan Balmer and Hilee Taylor."
Tar Heel Line Anchored By A Tank
The first thing you should know about Carolina center Scott Lenahan is that almost no one calls him 'Scott.' Thanks to an impressive weight room performance early in his career, the senior from Marietta, Ga. is simply 'Tank' to his teammates and coaches. Sometimes, he won't even answer to Scott. "A lot of people on the team don't even know my real name," he said.
Butch Davis instills no-nonsense discipline
North Carolina safety Cooter Arnold will miss his second game this weekend for breaking team rules. And although teammates may miss him on the field, the reserve's indefinite suspension -- coach Butch Davis' third major disciplinary action since he was hired in November -- has sent a positive message through the locker room. "There's no favorites here,'' senior center Scott Lenahan said.
Front and center: Dyer gets his chance to lead UNC's line
Sophomore Lowell Dyer, all 6-3 and 275 pounds of him, had sneaked onto the field at Kenan Stadium to snap the ball to Yates. Senior Scott Lenahan, UNC's starting center, was getting his helmet repaired on the sideline, and that gave Dyer an opportunity to play in a game for the first time since high school. Dyer saw plenty more action against the Dukes after Lenahan suffered a strained right calf early in the third quarter.
