JOHN WRISTEN HEAD FOOTBALL COACH 4TH Season • SOUTHERN COLORADO ‘84 John Wristen, a former all-conference quarterback at Colorado State University-Pueblo, enters his fourth season as the ThunderWolves head football coach. Facing the momumental task of forging a football program from the ground up when he accepted the job in July 2007, Wristen has answered the call, leading the Pack to a 4-6 record in 2008, the fourth best record in NCAA Division II history for a startup program in its first season of competition. He upped the ante with a 7-4 record in 2009, including a big road win over defending-RMAC Champion, Chadron State, and halting the Eagles’ 28-game RMAC winning streak. The seven wins marks the third-most wins in NCAA Division II history for a startup program in its second season. The ThunderWolves’ 11-10 mark over its first two seasons of competition is also the third-best record among NCAA Division II startup programs. In 2010, the Pack turned in an even more impressive campaign, going 9-2

and finishing just a game out of an RMAC Championship and a national playoff berth. Wristen returned to Pueblo after coaching the previous 17 years in the NCAA Division I ranks at the University of Colorado, Northwestern University, and, most recently, UCLA. He was chosen from an application pool of more than 100 football coaches. During the 2006 season, Wristen served as the special teams and tight ends coach at UCLA. He coached allAmerican tight end Justin Medlock and worked closely with the offensive coordinator in play calling. Prior to UCLA, he served his second of two stints at CU from 1999-2006. He helped guide the Buffaloes to four Big 12 North Division Championships and the 2001 Big 12 Title. He coached the tight ends, kickoff and punt teams, and was given the additional responsibility of recruiting coordinator in 2003. He coached three all-Americans and helped develop and implement the West Coast Offense at CU. From 1991-1999, Wristen served as the running back, kickoff return and punt team coach at Northwestern University. The Wildcats won back-to-back Big 10 Titles in 1995 and 1996 during Wristen’s tenure, and he coached Heisman Trophy finalist Darnell Autry. Northwestern, who played in the Rose Bowl for the first time since 1949 during Wristen’s time, received the 1997 NCAA Graduation Award for graduating 100 percent of its undergraduate student-athletes. Wristen’s career in Division I football started in 1990 as a graduate assistant at CU, working with the quarterbacks and running backs and helping the Buffaloes to the 1990 National Championship. He also served as the offensive coordinator at Fort Lewis College, head football and girls basketball coach at Rocky Ford (Colo.) High School, and assistant football coach at Weslaco (Texas) High School. As the starting quarterback at thenUniversity of Southern Colorado,

QUARTERBACKS COACH/ PASS GAME COORDINATOR 4TH YEAR AT CSU-PUEBLO

Hunter Hughes is entering his fourth season as CSU-Pueblo’s defensive coordinator. Under Hughes’ leadership, the ThunderWolves defensive unit has been consistently ranked among the top defenses in the RMAC and the nation. In 2010, Hughes’ unit allowed the ninth-least points per game in the country, allowing just 15.6 points per game. It also led the RMAC in sacks and turnover ratio, the latter of which is was ranked 4th in the nation.

Also, in 2009, the ThunderWolf defense led the conference in interceptions, and boasted the lowest third-down and fourth-down efficiency in the RMAC. Hughes rose through the ranks as a coaching assistant with two of the most prestigious Division I football programs in the country - University of Colorado and the University of Tennessee. With the University of Colorado, Hughes was a defensive graduate assistant from 2003-2006, assisting in coaching various defensive positions as well as assisting in recruiting prospective CU students east of the Mississippi River.

Symington directed the nation’s most improved running game in 2009, turning a unit that ranked in the bottom 10 nationally in rushing yards in 2008, and turning it into the nation’s 14th-best running attack in 2009. Amazing, the Pack running game accomplished this with two sophomores in the backfield and and true or redshirt freshmen on the offensive line. His unit followed it up with a repeat performance in 2010, ranked 16th in the nation and helping elevate Jesse Lewis as a Harlon Hill Award finalist. Symington brought 25 years of experience as a player and coach to the ThunderWolves, much of it at the Division-I level. He had served as the offensive line coach at Eastern Michigan from 2003-2008, helping the Eagles’ offense to record the most total yards in school history in 2008 and put up some of the most prolific rushing yardage numbers in the history of the program. Prior to his time at Eastern Michigan, Symington had held offensive line coaching posts at numerous universities, including Tennessee State (200003), Western Kentucky (1996-99), and Vanderbilt (1990-94). From 199596, Symington was the offensive coordinator at the Division-II level with Northwood (Mich.) University. An offensive lineman at the University of Colorado from 1984-88, Symington was named the Freedom Bowl Most Valuable Player in 1985, was the team’s offensive player of the year in 1987, and was an all-Big 8 honorable mention selection. Prior to obtaining his first coaching position as a graduate assistant at CU alongside current CSU-Pueblo head coach Wristen, Symington signed a free agent contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 1988. Symington and his wife, Marti, have six children: Adam, Jessica, Blair, Jackson, Mary Grace and Stuart, as well as four grandchildren.

Mike Babcock is entering his fourth season as an assistant coach with the ThunderWolves and his third as the team’s pass game coordinator and quarterbacks coach. After serving as tight ends coach for one season, Babcock undertook the Pack’s quarterbacks, and watched as Pack quarterbacks shattered most school passing records, including most passing yards per game. In 2010, he helped direct a ThunderWolves offense that averaged 36.7 points per game, 13th most in the nation. Babcock, who played linebacker for the Bruins at UCLA from 199799, was on two Pac-10 championship teams, and played in the 1998 Cotton Bowl and 1999 Rose Bowl. He received his Bachelor’s in sociology from UCLA in 2002 before earning his Master’s in education in 2004, also from UCLA. He was the tight ends coach at the University of San Diego in 2007, and was a graduate assistant at UCLA from 200004.

Sewell, who had been the team’s offensive coordinator the past two seasons, was instrumental in Grandview’s 5A Colorado State Championship title in 2007. During Grandview’s state championship run, the Grandview offense was nearly unstoppable, averaging 332 yards of offense per game, including an average of 237 rushing yards per game. The state’s leading individual runner, Bo Bolen, tutored under Sewell, en route to 2,291 rushing yards and 28 touchdowns. In Sewell’s four seasons with the team, Grandview made the 5A state playoffs three of those four seasons, including a berth in the state semifinal in 2005. As a player with the Broncos, Sewell had learned from some of the best, including current and former NFL head coaches Mike Shanahan (Washington Redskins) and Chan Gailey (Buffalo Bills), as well as former NFL head coaches Dan Reeves (Broncos), Wade Phillips (Dallas Cowboys), and Mike Nolan (49ers). As a player at the University of Oklahoma, Sewell was coached by Barry Switzer and current University of Texas head coach, Mack Brown, each of which won national championships at the collegiate level.

Hedrick and his wife Stephanie reside in Pueblo and have two children (Lindsey and Brandon). In addition to coaching Hedrick also competes in the sport of weightlifting and finished third at the National Masters Weightlifting Championships in 2009.

2011 SIGNING CLASS CSU-Pueblo’s 2011 recruiting class helped to further cement the reputation that the ThunderWolves have in the region, as competing with Division I schools for available talent as opposed to its rival RMAC schools. “Of the players that we were going really hard after that we lost out on, they all ended up going Division I,” CSU-Pueblo head coach John Wristen said of the Pack’s 2011 signing class. “That’s something I can live with. The guys we have coming in are top notch and we believe it’s the top class in the RMAC.” Filling an immediate hole from this class is a four-year Division I transfer, former University of Wyoming and Northern Arizona defensive end, Corey Orth (Jr., Buena Vista, Colo.). Orth is expected to start at defensive end in the Pack’s 3-4 alignment and make a significant impact. As has become commonplace for the program, the signing class includes several ranked as Division I-caliber prospects by national recruiting websites - Rangeview tailback J.B. Mathews (Aurora, Colo.) received a “two-star” rating by Scout.com and is already slotted to be a kick returner. He has already displayed the chops as the potential future starting tailback of this squad. CSU-Pueblo, returning a strong senior class that was with the program since the team’s re-birth as a collegiate sport in 2008, will be relying on the Class of 2011 signees to help reload the loss of these seniors as well as fill some immediate holes on both offense and defense as the Pack looks for its second RMAC title and national playoff berth in school history in 2011. “Coming off a 9-2 season creates new opportunities for recruiting,” Wristen said. “We have built a solid foundation for the football program based on integrity, respect, tradition, hard work and commitment. Now we have the luxury of recruiting some exceptional talent into our system, teaching them what it takes to be a Pack football player and coaching them to play Pack football.” “Each one of these guys come from an outstanding pedigree and their success will undoubtedly continue at CSU-Pueblo. This is very rewarding for the seniors who bought into the program four years ago, who have kept the drive and determination to build one of the finest Division II teams in the country, and who will ultimately continue our quest for excellence.”

2011 SEASON PREVIEW OFFENSE

CSU-Pueblo proved that its 2009 offensive explosion was no fluke, upping the ante in 2010 by scoring the 13th-most points per game in the nation (37.6) and once again finishing in the top 20 in rushing yardage. With nearly all pieces from the 2010 squad returning in 2011, hopes are high to blow the lid off of the RMAC.

QUARTERBACK

For the first time since current head coach John Wristen returned to quarterback the 1983 team after starting in 1982, CSU-Pueblo will have a returning starting quarterback as Ross Dausin (6’5”, 200, Jr.-1L) returns to the fray in 2011. Starting 11 games in 2010, Dausin was steady, but not great, reporting just one 300-yard passing game and throwing for 1,674 yards. Dausin, however, has appeared to mature immensely over the offseason, far and away claiming the job after a short-live rush by understudies Jon Kuzava (6’0”, 190, Jr.-TR) and Troy Graham (6’5”, 220, Jr.-2L). The biggest addition to Dausin’s game has been a better ability to run the ball, a factor that wasn’t there for him in 2010. Labelled strictly as a dropback passer, he has shown in drills improved foot speed and most importantly improved decisionmaking skills. In short, 2011 has the potential to be a breakout year for the junior from San Antonio, Tex.

JESSE LEWIS

RUNNING BACK

For the third straight season, the fearsome tailback combination of Jesse Lewis (5’7”, 180, Sr.-3L) and Jamaal Johnson (5’9”, 180, Sr.-3L) anchor what has become arguably the most experienced backfield in the nation. The duo combined for over 2,000 yards rushing last season and nearly hit the 2,000 mark during 2009. Lewis broke every single season rushing record there was, rushing for 1,391 yards and 14 rushing scores, including a national-best 7.9

JAMAAL JOHNSON yards per rush average. A slew of available backs will come in to spell Johnson and Lewis, and will likely hint at who will succeed them in 2012. The likeliest players

to see time will be South Dakota transfer Donovan Bowens (6’0”, 197, So.-TR) and true freshman J.B. Mathews (6’0”, 188, Fr.-HS).

2010 SEASON PREVIEW WIDE RECEIVER

The biggest surprise of the 2010 season was the emergence of truefreshman Josh Sandoval (5’11”, 155, So., 1L) as a slot option, coming away with 27 catches, second-most on the team. Between Sandoval and fellow Pueblo-native, Da’Quan Cartwright (6’1”, 205, Sr..-3L), the ThunderWolves return experience at the wideout position. But the Pack is waiting for a receiver to help its passing game explode, and the most likely candidate to lead the receivers is redshirt-freshman Paul Browning (6’3”, 212, RFr.-RS). Browning earned the “Corey Tolle Award” for best wide receiver during spring drills and is progressing nicely in the offense.

Wittek enters his senior season after a stellar junior season, which saw him catch 24 passes and score touchdowns three times. He also emerged as the Pack’s top receiving target inside the red zone, catching two crucial scores in key RMAC battles with Colorado Mines and Chadron State. He anchors two and three tight end packages that feature Tyler Hamlin (6’2”, 215, Jr.-1L) and Roger Pfannenschmid (6’3”, 225, Jr.-2L). Pfannenschmid took down 10 passes in 2010 and both he and Hamlin have shown the ability to block for the Pack backs with high efficiency. Redshirt freshman Trent Thompson (6’4”, 205, RFr.-RS) has also shown that he could break into the tight end rotation, as well.

The tight end position has slowly turned in to one of the strongest on the team, and a big reason for that is the play of second-team All-RMAC selection Koby Wittek (6’3”, 224, Sr.-2L).

In 2011, the Pack offensive line will begin its third season together, as most on the line will be juniors. As a unit, it has established itself as arguably the top returning line in the

TIGHT END

OFFENSIVE LINE

RMAC. Three have secured all-conference or all-Colorado selections – Ryan Jensen (6’4”, 265, Jr.-2L), tackle Drew Swartz (6’4”, 280, Jr.-2L), and J.T. Haddan (6’2”, 265, Jr.-2L) – to go along with allconference-caliber center Jonathan Jones (5’8”, 225, Jr.-2L), one of the quickest centers in the nation. Rounding out the line will be Taylor Kelly (6’5”, 245, So.-1L) at tackle. Jensen, an All-RMAC tackle in 2010, will be bookended by Kelly at the other tackle position. Kelly moves to tackle after last season’s starting tackle, Swartz, also an All-RMAC tackle in 2010, moves over to guard in 2011. Haddan will remain at guard after subbing at center for a portion of 2010. The Pack will, however, have to go without Swartz, who injured his ACL in fall camp. Replacing him is R.J. Trione (5’11”, 240, Jr.-2L), who was a starter in 2009 and 2010 before a season-ending injury took him out of the lineup.

2011 SEASON PREVIEW DEFENSE

With a team of mostly sophomores and juniors on the defensive side of the football, the Pack defense flourished in 2011, allowing just 15.6 points per game, ninth-lowest in the country. The loss of a couple seniors in the defensive backfield raises some alarm, but the rest of the team returns largely intact and ready for another go in 2011.

DEFENSIVE LINE

The success of the defensive line in 2011 will be greatly impacted by the play of four-year-starter, Grant Jansen (6’0”, 225, Sr.-3L). Jansen, an All-RMAC selection and one-time RMAC Freshman of the Year, is on pace to graduate as CSU-Pueblo’s all-time sacks leader. He enters the season with 29 consecutive starts dating back to 2008, by far the most on the team. In the middle, Jervoise Hollins (6’1”, 228, So.-1L) returns after starting as a true freshman and becoming a rock and nose guard. Starting in all 11 games, he turned in 2½ sacks and 38 tackles. Corey Orth (6’5”, 255, Jr.-TR), a transfer from the University of Northern Arizona, will come to fill the void left by 2010 RMAC Freshman of the Year, Beau Martin, who left the team to walk on at Boise State. Orth quickly established himself as a force at spring drills and could be in for a big season.

LINEBACKERS

Very few teams in the nation, let alone the RMAC, have such an experienced and talented inside linebacker as Lee Meisner (6’0”,

240, Sr.-3L). An all-region selection and one of the nation’s leaders in tackles, ranking sixth in the country, he has been named a preseason AllAmerican by The Sporting News and was named the RMAC’s Preseason Defensive Player of the Year. A close second to Meisner as far as hitting ability and smarts in the open field is Damon Schiele (6’0”, 220, Jr.-2L). If it weren’t for an injury that halted his season, he would have been a shoo-in for all-conference honors, logging 60 tackles and picking off three passes, one for a score, in just eight games. Beldy Nseka (6’0”, 205, Jr.-2L) and Jason Campbell (6’1”, 225, Jr.-2L), will take up the two outside backer spots, and are consistent with the team speed and aggressive pop on the tackle that is preached by defensive coordinator, Hunter Hughes. Campbell was second on the team in tackles for loss last season with 11, while Nseka was second on the team in tackles with 70 despite missing one game. The linebacking unit helps make the Pack front seven one of the most physical and tenacious in the RMAC and will certainly be a key to the team’s success in 2011.

DEFENSIVE BACKS

The biggest question mark defensively is definitely at defensive back, where both starting cornerbacks were lost to graduation. Though replacing two all-conference corners like Chris Brown and Grant Crunkleton will be a tall order, the personnel is in place for a seamless transition.

Taking one cornerback spot is Stephan Dickens (5’8”, 160, So.1L). Dickens saw time at corner as a true freshman midway through the season, and by the end of the year, he had ejected Brown from the starting lineup, getting the nod in three games. He turned in two picks and 23 tackles in less than a half-season played, and will likely hold on to that starting spot in 2011. The other corner position will likely fall to junior Mark Sterling (6’0”, 190, Jr.-2L) or redshirt freshman C.J. Roberts (6’0”, 180, RFr.RS). At the safety positions, there is no turnover as three-year starter Jon Bailey (5’11”, 170, Sr.-3L) and Josh Costa (5’8”, 190, Sr.-3L) return. Bailey has a nose for the loose ball and while Costa, a preaseason AllRMAC pick, is a prototypical strong safety, packing a wallop to opposing receivers wishing to go over the middle.

SPECIAL TEAMS

The Pack special teams is solid behind all-conference placekicker Kyle Major (6’3”, 230, Sr.-3L), who smashed all CSU-Pueblo scoring records in 2010, and punter Brandon Kliesen (6’0”, 220, So.-1L), who ranked 8th in the nation in punting in 2010. Both have the ability to put up All-American seasons in the thin air environment in the RMAC. Snapping the ball will be long snapper Joe Campton (6’2”, 245, Sr.-3L), the best dedicated long snapper in the RMAC.

2010 season-in-review: game 1 CSU-PUEBLO AT OKLAHOMA PANHANDLE STATE

saturday, august 28, 2010 • CARL WOOTEN FIELD • GOODWELL, OKLA. • (2,500)

14 26 A 21-point first quarter carries ThunderWolves to 26-14 win GOODWELL, Okla. – Though the game had its share of first-game jitters, CSU-Pueblo had an offensive explosion with 21 first quarter points, providing enough mileage to claim a 26-14 win over Oklahoma Panhandle State Saturday. The Pack responded to a well-organized gameopening touchdown scoring drive by the Aggies, shrugging off the early 7-0 deficit to score three touchdowns, two coming on big gains. After Jesse Lewis (Jr., Loveland, Colo.) ran in a 10-yard score on a pretty drive that saw quarterback Ross Dausin (So., San Antonio, Tex.) hit his tight ends for three huge receptions, the game was tied at 7. Members of the Pack offensive line, including guard J.T. Haddan (left) and tackles Ryan Jensen (center) and Drew Swartz (right) helped pave the way toward 149 rushing yards vs. Oklahoma Panhandle State.  Photo by Bill Sabo, Pro Action Photos

On the next possesion, which started with a pick by cornerback Grant Crunkleton (Sr., Denver, Colo.), Lewis culminated the drive with a 41-yard touchdown run to give the Pack a 14-7 lead.

The lead was extended the second quarter when a punt by Brandon Kliesen (RFr., Pueblo, Colo.) pinned Panhandle inside their own 5-yard line and led to a safety by Damon Schiele (RSo., Aurora, Colo.), padding the Pack’s advantage even further.

After a three-and-out possesion by the Aggies, Dausin connected on his first Division II touchdown pass with a 55-yard strike to Bernard Jackson (Sr., Corona, Calif.), taking a 21-7 lead and leaving the Aggies to play catchup.

2010 season-in-review: game 2 NORTHWESTERN OKLAHOMA STATE AT CSU-PUEBLO

saturday, SEPTEMBER 4, 2010 • NETA & EDDIE DEROSE THUNDERBOWL • PUEBLO, COLO. • (6,723)

55 13 Pack becomes first RMAC team to move to 2-0 with convincing win. PUEBLO, Colo. – In 2009, CSU-Pueblo travelled to Alva, Okla. to take on a Northwestern Oklahoma State team regarded as one of the top NAIA teams in the nation, and lost a heartbreaker 34-28. Saturday night, CSU-Pueblo showed what it looked like to purge a 365-day-old grudge, annihilating Northwestern Oklahoma State 55-13 at the Neta and Eddie DeRose ThunderBowl in the Pack’s 2010 home opener. The win vaulted the Pack to 2-0 on the young season, putting them in the enviable position of being the only RMAC squad to be undefeated through two weeks of the season. The Pack started slow, enduring a few threeand-outs and a lackluster running game before the passing game and defense helped lift the team to the stratosphere. The first strike came on a 63-yard touchdown toss from Ross Dausin (So., San Antonio, Tex.) to Da’Quan Cartwright (Jr., Pueblo, Colo.), to give the Pack a 7-0 first quarter lead. In the second quarter, the ThunderWolves all

In his first home start, CSU-Pueblo quarterback Ross Dausin nearly broke a single game record for passing yardage with 304 yards, going a very efficient 16-for-21 passing.  Photo by Bill Sabo, Pro Action Photos but put the game away, converting another touchdown toss from Dausin to Cartwright, then breaking the Rangers’ back when Grant Crunkleton (Sr., Denver, Colo.) scored on a pick-six interception return, part of a 24-point second quarter by CSUPueblo. The Pack carried a 31-6 lead into halftime and never looked back. By the time the smoke cleared, CSU-Pueblo had netted 55 points, the most points scored by a ThunderWolf squad since it hung 57 on Fort Lewis in 1965, and the passing game came within a hair of busting school records. Dausin turned in one of the most efficient passing games in school history, going 16for-21 with 304 yards, five yards shy of a school record, and three touchdown tosses. As a unit, the ThunderWolves passed 19-for-26 for four scores and 316 yards, also three yards shy of a school record.

Offensively, the Pack turned in 402 total yards, and held NWOSU quarterback, Kyle Jech, to just a 13-for-31 day with one pick. The Rangers’ All-American tailback, Nate Guillory, mustered just 52 yards after torching the Pack for 130 a year ago. With the win, CSU-Pueblo will get a bye week before hitting the field again in its RMAC opener Sept. 18 against Adams State, also at the ThunderBowl. Despite the fast start, CSUPueblo coach, John Wristen, said no level of cockiness is setting in, even after putting up 55. “We’re very excited about our offensive personnel, especially with our defense playing lights out,” Wristen said. “But this doesn’t send any message to the RMAC. We still have to show up and get ready for conference play.”

2010 season-in-review: game 3 ADAMS STATE AT CSU-PUEBLO

saturday, SEPTEMBER 11, 2010 • NETA & EDDIE DEROSE THUNDERBOWL • PUEBLO, COLO. • (6,068) AFCA D-II Coaches’ Poll – 9/6/2010

27 10 Halftime deadlock broken open by special teams, defensive scores. PUEBLO, Colo. – With a sparkling defensive effort and stellar special teams play, the ThunderWolves were able to open RMAC play with a decisive 27-10 victory over Adams State. The first half proved to be a defensive merry-goround with each team exchanging positions constantly throughout the half. Both defenses were stout, only giving up a field goal apiece after one half of play. The Pack passing game struggled, gaining only 34 yards the first half, even having a long would-be touchdown reception axed because of a penalty. Pack head coach John Wristen had to tell his team to put the lackluster half in perspective and move on. “I just told the guys to mentally flush the half down the toilet,” he said. The comment seemed to spark the ThunderWolves, especially on special teams. To begin the second half, Marquise Enoch (Sr., Denver, Colo.) returned the opening kickoff 97 yards and taking it to the house, outrunning would-be tacklers in a sideline sprint, putting the Pack up 10-3. “We practiced (setting up special teams) this whole week to make the defense pursue the inside of the kickoff coverage to open up the sidelines,” Enoch said. “The blocking was so good that even I could have run that one back,” head coach John Wristen quipped about Enoch’s return.

The Pack netted more kickoff return yards against Adams State (99) than in its previous two games combined. The unit is finally starting to fire on all cylinders, Enoch said. “We had been slouching the previous two games (on special teams) and this week we practiced hard to make sure we were strong in that part of the game,” Enoch said. Late in the third quarter, linebacker Damon Schiele (So., Aurora, Colo.) picked off Grizzlies’ quarterback Trevor Eggleston attempted screen pass

and returned the interception 39 yards for a touchdown. Up 17-3, the Pack finally got their offense rolling when running back Jesse Lewis (Jr., Loveland, Colo.) broke through on an 18-yard-run to extend the lead 24-3. The ThunderWolves’ defense was relentless throughout the game, only giving up a vanity fourth quarter touchdown after the final outcome was all but decided. The cornerback pairing of Grant Crunkleton (Sr., Denver, Colo.) and Chris Brown (Sr., Aurora, Colo.) shined by intercepting the Grizzles three times inside the 10-yard-line on probable touchdown throws. Brown recorded two picks, each inside the five-yard line, and Crunkleton added a fourth quarter interception. All told, the duo had their hands in on six Grizzly passes, picking off three. “On offense we have to manage the game, but tonight we just weren’t sharp, and the defense picked us up,” Wristen said. The Pack added to their lead with a late fourth quarter field goal by kicker Kyle Major, to put them up for good 27-10. This win marks the first time the ThunderWolves have started 3-0 since 1980, which is also the only time they have won an RMAC championship. “It feels good to be 3-0 rather than 0-3,” Wristen said about the start of the season.

2010 season-in-review: game 4 CSU-PUEBLO AT FORT LEWIS

saturday, SEPTEMBER 25, 2010 • RAY DENNISON FIELD • DURANGO, COLO. • (1,335) AFCA D-II Coaches’ Poll – 9/20/2010

14 49 ThunderWolves post 35 unanswered points to rout Skyhawks DURANGO, Colo. – Ask any football coach and he’ll tell you that big plays on defense can help define a game. Near the close of the second half, that big play was turned in by true freshman defensive lineman, Beau Martin (Fr., Littleton, Colo.), who forced a fumble with less than three minutes remaining in the half, leading to a go-ahead score by the Pack, who carried a 21-14 lead into halftime and never looked back. “I knew we had to be patient,” Pack head coach John Wristen said about the back-and-forth game in the first half. “Sooner or later, we were going to get some big plays and that’s what we got.” After Martin’s big play, the rushing game caught fire, as did the defense’s ability to make even more noise. On the ground, CSU-Pueblo logged a season-high 324 rushing yards, including 100-plus yard rushing days for both Jesse Lewis (Jr., Loveland, Colo.) and Jamaal Johnson (Jr., Fountain, Colo.), the first time this season that the Pack’s “thunder and lightning” combo each had 100-yard days in the same game. Each ran for two touchdown scores, as well. Defensively, a pair of interception returns for touchdowns paved the way, the first coming from Jason Campbell (RSo., Kailua, Hawaii), who picked off a Tim Jenkins pass and promptly lateralled to Grant Crunkleton (Sr., Denver, Colo.), who rumbled 40

Then with the game out of hand in the fourth quarter, reserve cornerback Mark Sterling (So., Colorado Springs, Colo.) turned a would-be cosmetic touchdown by Fort Lewis into a “pick six,” picking off a pass and returning it 97 yards for a score, the second longest interception return in school history (Keno Aleman recorded a 100-yard interception return, an NCAA record, in 1967).

Photo by Bill Sabo, Pro Action Photos purpose yards, a school record for a single game output. And defensively, the Pack employed the “bend but don’t break” approach, giving up nearly 400 total yards but allowing just 14 points, the fourth time in as many games that the Pack held its opponent to 14 points or less. “Though our defense gave up a lot of yards, they only gave up those 14 points and it was a pretty good day for that unit,” Wristen said. “They seized the moment and played hard from the first snap to the last, and guys took turns making that big play.” With the win, CSU-Pueblo continues its undefeated start, at 4-0 overall and 2-0 in RMAC play. The 4-0 start is its best since 1980 (when it won its only RMAC title) and its overall win streak of eight (dating back to last season) is the secondlongest in school history. But keeping these streaks alive will not be an easy task. The Pack returns home next week for “Homecoming” against a very daunting opponent, Chadron State, which the Pack beat last season in Chadron. It is a game that the Eagles have had circled on their calendar since last season.

2010 season-in-review: game 5 CHADRON STATE AT CSU-PUEBLO

saturday, OCTOBER 2, 2010 • NETA & EDDIE DEROSE THUNDERBOWL • PUEBLO, COLO. • (6,431) AFCA D-II Coaches’ Poll – 9/27/2010

33 30 Pack pulls out triple-overtime thriller over Chadron. PUEBLO, Colo. – Kyle Major (Jr., Littleton, Colo.) doesn’t take react well to failure. When the ThunderWolves’ junior placekicker went 0-for-3 last week in a 49-14 win over Fort Lewis, he knew he had to get better, because he never knew when his team would need him. Saturday, the kicker was needed by his team, and he delivered. After an epic goal line stop by the ThunderWolf defense, in which three consecutive Chadron State quarterback sneak attempts were stuffed at the goal line, Major knew he’d have to deliver the kick that would lift his team to a win in an triple-overtime masterpiece of a game. To close out the third overtime, Major nailed a 34-yarder, upholding the Pack’s valiant defensive stand and sending the ThunderWolves to a 33-30 nail-biter of a win over Chadron State. The win lifts the ThunderWolves to an RMAC-best 5-0 and 3-0 in conference play. “I stayed after practice all week long to practice some technique stuff to stay accurate, Major said of his four field goal day, in which he took over the Pack’s career lead in field goals and broke a school record for most three-pointers in a single game. “On that final kick, I knew it was going to go right down the middle.” The kicker may be the hero on the stat sheet, but this win was signed, sealed and notarized by the Pack’s

defensive front. Facing a Chadron State 2nd-and-goal from the two, CSU-Pueblo halted a quarterback sneak attempt by Jonn McLain at the 1-yard-line. Then facing 3rd-andan-inch, the Pack front rejected McLain again, then held for a third time as the Eagles tried to go for it all on 4th-and-goal. The biggest thing that stands out to me in the first half was when we held them to a field goal. We turned over the ball and they punched them in. We didn’t panic and stayed the course, kept it within 10, and from there we had a chance to keep it close. “How about that stop?” CSU-Pueblo head coach John

Kyle Major (10) and Pack special teamers celebrate after the game-winning overtime field goal vs. Chadron State.  Photo by Bill Sabo, Pro Action Photos Wristen beamed after the game. “Three downs within a yard and they didn’t get in. I credit those defensive linemen. It was an amazing effort by them.” “[The defensive line] is tough,” freshman defensive end Beau Martin (Fr., Littleton, Colo.) said. “Every day in practice, we bring it. Our coaches teach us to be phsyical, and that’s what you have to do going up against a tough offensive line like Chadron’s.” The game-ending fireworks were the dessert for a game that seemed to be all Eagles from the beginning. Chadron State jumped out to a 10-0 lead by the end of the first quarter, using a field goal and a turnover inside the 10-yard-line to jump to the early advantage. The Pack was able to put up one field goal, but Major missed his second attempt from 23 yards out, leaving the game in the Eagles’ hands, 10-3, at halftime. The second half started off with a big Pack play, as Marquise Enoch (Sr., Denver, Colo.) returned the opening kickoff 57 yards to set up the tying score, a threeyard burst by Jesse Lewis (Jr., Loveland, Colo.) to knot the game at 10. After that, it was a brawl, as each team traded scores. But a risky play helped put momentum in the Pack’s hands. Down 20-17 with just five minutes remaining and a four-and-out situation staring the Pack down, the ThunderWolves opted for a fake punt, sending punter Brandon Kliesen (RFr., Pueblo, Colo.) on a sprint for the first-down marker, which eventually led to the game-tying boot by Major from 39 yards out with 2:23 remaining. After trading field goals to open up the first overtime, CSU-Pueblo went ahead 3023 on a pretty bootleg throw to Koby Wittek (Jr., Golden, Colo.), who had to fully extend to bring in the hopeful winning score. But a Chadron score tied the game at 30, setting up the defensive stand that won the game for the Pack.

16 Offsides penalty, last-second touchdown lifts Mines over Pack GOLDEN, Colo. – In what was almost another gripping win for the ThunderWolves, a game-saving drive and well-timed offsides penalty on CSU-Pueblo in the closing seconds was enough to lift Colorado School of Mines over the Pack - and the lead in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference - as the ThunderWolves fell 19-16. Facing a 4th-and-goal from the ThunderWolf eightyard-line with 34 seconds remaining and a 16-12 lead, CSU-Pueblo seemingly stopped a desperation try for the end zone by the Orediggers. But an offsides penalty on the ThunderWolves delivered another chance for Mines, who made the most of of their reprieve, as quarterback Clay Garcia delivered his second touchdown of the day to Jerrod Doucet, leaving the Pack without much time to stage a last-ditch comeback. It undid what would have been an amazing win for the Pack, who put up countless big plays, especially on the defense, in the seesaw affair. In the first half, facing the highest-octane offense in the RMAC, CSU-Pueblo picked off two passes in the end zone and blocked a field goal attempt in the first half, balancing out Mines’ tenacious defense which held the Pack all afternoon, giving CSU-Pueblo a 3-0 halftime lead. After Mines took a 6-3 lead on a goal-line touchdown dive in the third quarter, the Pack matched it, going for it on 4th-and-goal at the one-yard-line and

hitting paydirt, as quarterback Ross Dausin (So., San Antonio, Tex.) ran in a score on a quarterback keeper to take a 10-6 lead. Mines then one-upped the ThunderWolves with a 41-yard pass from Garcia to Doucet with 5:55 remaining, giving the Orediggers a 12-10 lead. But CSU-Pueblo, which had trouble moving the ball most of the afternoon, cruised on the ensuing drive, connecting on a touchdown toss from Dausin to Golden-native, Koby Wittek (Jr., Golden, Colo.) to deliver a 16-12 lead with 3:40 left. But after Mines’ big plays on the ensuing drive which led to the eventual touchdown, CSU-Pueblo

simply ran out of time. Not even the big leg of kicker Kyle Major (Jr., Littleton, Colo.) could save the Pack, who tried booting a 64-yard field goal in the closing seconds on a drive that could have very easily turned into at least a tying score if the Pack had more than 30 seconds to work with. The loss, while stinging, was put in perspective by Pack head coach, John Wristen. “They made the big plays when they had to and took advantage of the opportunities they had,” Wristen said. “I’m proud of our guys and the fight they put in, but we just couldn’t stop them when we needed to.” With the loss, CSU-Pueblo effectively falls from first place in the RMAC to third place with a 5-1 record and 3-1 mark in conference play, behind both Mines and Nebraska-Kearney, which are both 5-1 and 4-0 in RMAC play after Saturday’s games. Kearney defeated Chadron State 35-28 Saturday.

2010 season-in-review: game 7 #13 NEBRASKA-KEARNEY AT CSU-PUEBLO

saturday, OCTOBER 16, 2010 • NETA & EDDIE DEROSE THUNDERBOWL • PUEBLO, COLO. • (6,431) AFCA D-II Coaches’ Poll – 10/11/2010

24 38 Late surge, porous pass defense turns close game into nearblowout. PUEBLO, Colo. – Timing is everything. It’s a lesson the CSU-Pueblo football team learned harshly Saturday, watching two would-be touchdowns erased on account of untimely mistakes as 13thranked Nebraska-Kearney turned a neck-and-neck affair into a near blowout, claiming a 38-24 win. The loss is the second straight for CSU-Pueblo (5-2, 3-2 RMAC) and suddenly puts the Pack in a long-shot position for an RMAC title. CSU-Pueblo’s second half performance unraveled a strong first half in which the offense was clicking and the defense was making its trademark key stops in the red zone. An opening drive into the Pack’s red zone by Nebraska-Kearney was held up as the Lopers took a 3-0 opening lead, and stopped a would-be Loper score on a fake field goal attempt in the first half. Offensively, the Pack took a 7-3 lead on a 71-yard rush by Jesse Lewis (Jr., Loveland, Colo.) in the first quarter, and took a lead in the third quarter when Ross Dausin (So., San Antonio, Tex.) placed a perfect

throw into the hands of Derek Gainey (Sr., Aurora, Colo.) as the ThunderWolves claimed a 14-10 advantage midway through the third quarter.

Later, as CSU-Pueblo was trailing 31-17, Jamaal Johnson (Jr., Fountain, Colo.) was a running a would-be touchdown into the end zone when he fumbled at the goal line, shooting the ball out of the end zone and handing the ball the Lopers on a touchback.

But just as it had the previous two times it faced Nebraska-Kearney since 2008, both Loper blowouts, defensive breakdowns and a trio of offensive mistakes by CSU-Pueblo broke the game wide open for the Lopers.

In each case, Nebraska-Kearney all-conference receiver Kyle Kaiser made big plays on the offensive side of the ball that made the ThunderWolves pay. He was wide open repeatedly, catching three touchdown passes, including a pair of 70plus yard touchdown receptions in the fourth quarter. He finished with 10 catches for 282 yards while the Lopers put up 587 yards of offense.

The first hurtful mistake came as Nebraska-Kearney was up 24-14 in the fourth quarter, and Dausin hit Jared Sperber (Jr., Oakley, Kan.) for a would-be 36-yard

CSU-Pueblo will try to regroup from the loss with a road trip to Mesa State next Friday night before returning home for a Hall of Fame Game showdown with New Mexico Highlands on Oct. 30.

2010 season-in-review: game 8 CSU-PUEBLO AT MESA STATE

saturday, OCTOBER 23, 2010 • STOCKER STADIUM • GRAND JUNCTION, COLO. • (529)

14 26 Running game, defense reemerges as ThunderWolves improve to 6-2. GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. – For the third straight season, wacky weather doomed a CSU-Pueblo/Mesa State gridiron matchup, as a rain storm kept the ball on the ground all night long, playing right into the Pack’s hands as CSU-Pueblo claimed a 26-14 win Saturday. After a bitterly cold meeting in Grand Junction in 2008, and an even colder meeting in Pueblo in 2009 when a freakish ice storm hit the Neta and Eddie DeRose ThunderBowl, lightning delayed the start of Saturday’s game and a night-long rain storm decided its pace, allowing CSU-Pueblo and its potent rushing attack to consistently move the ball on the ground. The ThunderWolves logged 193 yards on the ground, with Jesse Lewis (Jr., Loveland, Colo.) rushing for 119 yards and Jamaal Johnson (Jr., Fountain, Colo.) adding two touchdown runs, as the rushing attack logged 47 rushes on the night. Defensively, CSU-Pueblo feasted on Mesa State after two consecutive weeks of facing spread offenses, allowing just 2.6 yards per rush to the Mavericks and never allowing a run of more than 10 yards on the night. But the stars were certainly the Pack secondary,

After Mesa State ended the first half with a flurry, closing a 14-0 lead to a 14-14 tie at the break, CSU-Pueblo badly needed to regain momentum and the secondary delivered. Just a minute into the half, cornerback Grant Crunkleton (Sr., Denver, Colo.) converted his NCAA Division II-best third defensive touchdown of the season with a 40-yard interception return for a score, which put the Pack up 20-14 and put the Mavs in catch-up mode. “We felt like the first ten minutes of the second half would be the most important in terms of taking back momentum,” Pack coach John Wristen said, “and that’s

just what we did.” A 43-yard field goal by Kyle Major (Jr., Littleton, Colo.) put the Pack up nine early in the first quarter, and really proved to be a clincher late in the game. Major later added another field goal, undoing a night that saw his streak of 36-straight extra points, dating back to last season, snapped on a rainy PAT try in the third quarter. “I was proud of our special teams performance,” Wristen said, “and I think it really was the difference in the game.” CSU-Pueblo will return home next week for its home finale against New Mexico Highlands, which is also the CSU-Pueblo Athletics Hall of Fame Game. The Pack will then close out its 2010 slate with road matches against Western State and Western New Mexico, and hopefully do enough to capture an NCAA Division II playoff berth in the process.

66 0 Pack busts records, annihilate Highlands. PUEBLO, Colo. – In the final home game of the season Saturday, CSU-Pueblo teed off on New Mexico Highlands, setting school records for most points in a game and highest margin of victory in a 66-0 shutout of the Cowboys. The ThunderWolves registered 499 yards of total offense to just 158 for the Cowboys, earning 23 first downs to just 8 by Highlands. The Pack rumbled for eight rushing touchdowns, a school record, as two backs, Jesse Lewis (Jr., Loveland, Colo.) and Jamaal Johnson (Jr., Fountain, Colo.) each ran for 100 yards, with Lewis getting 141 and Johnson adding 102. In a game that was out of hand just minutes into the second quarter, the highlight of the night was kicker Kyle Major (Jr., Littleton, Colo.), who was the beneficiary of the offensive outburst, scoring 12 points on the night, nine coming by way of extra points, also a school record, in overtaking former two-time All-American, Bill Gower, for most points scored in CSU-Pueblo history with 172. The timing of the record was fitting, as Gower was honored at the game after being inducted in the CSU-Pueblo Athletics Hall of Fame Friday night. In what was also senior night for the Pack, seniors were given plenty of opportunities to produce. Fullback

2010 season-in-review: game 10 CSU-PUEBLO AT WESTERN STATE

saturday, NOVEMBER 6, 2010 • MOUNTAINEER BOWL • GUNNISON, COLO. • (440) AFCA D-II Coaches’ Poll – 11/1/2010

3 37 Offense, defense clicks in 37-3 win over Western State GUNNISON, Colo. – CSU-Pueblo took care of business Saturday in a road showdown at Western State, playing stout on both sides of the ball as the ThunderWolves scored a 37-3 win over the Mountaineers. The Pack’s key to success was its running game, which racked up 314 yards on the ground, 239 coming from Jesse Lewis (Jr., Loveland, Colo.), who used the gaudy rushing numbers to take over sole possession of first place in CSU-Pueblo history for most rushing yards in a season, now at 1,206 yards this year. He broke the mark set by two-time All-American and recent CSU-Pueblo Athletics Hall of Fame inductee, Bill Gower. Lewis also ran for a touchdown, equalling the single season rushing touchdown record of 11 set by Joe Pannunzio in 1980. Defensively, CSU-Pueblo got a very strong game from its defensive front seven, equalling a season high with five sacks, 1-1/2 coming from RMAC Defensive Freshman of the Year candidate, Beau Martin (Fr., Littleton, Colo.). The defensive backfield was also strong, as cornerbacks Stephan Dickens (Fr., Aurora, Colo.) and Chris Brown (Sr., Aurora, Colo.) each had picks, helping to hold Western State to just 116 yards of passing and 247 yards of total offense. “When you run the ball for 300 yards and get strong

play from your defense, you know you’re going to be pretty successful,” Pack coach John Wristen said. “It was nice to see our offense, and especially our running game, execute well when they were throwing eight- and nine-man fronts at us.” Overall, the 37-3 win was the ThunderWolves’ biggest in terms of margin-of-victory over the Mountaineers in school history, shattering the mark of 21 points in the school’s 1982 meeting. The back-and-forth series which has been all ThunderWolves since the school’s football program was re-started in 2008, now sits at nine wins apiece.

CSU-Pueblo tailback Jesse Lewis (28) ran for 239 yards vs. Western State, becoming the leading single-season rusher in school history with 1,206 yards. His touchdown score in the game also gave him the school record for rushing TDs.  Photo by Bill Sabo, Pro Action Photos The win, combined with losses by three teams ranked ahead of the ThunderWolves in the Super Region Three rankings could greatly improve its chances to sneak into a playoff spot. RMAC-foe, Colorado Mines, lost Saturday, as did regional foes Winona State and the region’s top-ranked team, Augustana. Entering the week, Mines was ranked eighth and Winona was ninth. CSU-Pueblo entered the week unranked in the Super Region’s top ten, needing to get their way into the top six for a national playoff spot. The Pack will get its final shot at postseason play next Saturday, when they close out its regular season in Silver City, N.M. against Western New Mexico.

2010 season-in-review: game 11 CSU-PUEBLO AT WESTERN NEW MEXICO

saturday, NOVEMBER 13, 2010 • BEN ALTAMIRANO STADIUM • SILVER CITY, N.M. • (652) AFCA D-II Coaches’ Poll – 11/8/2010

17 45 ThunderWolves equal win record in victory over Western N.M. SILVER CITY, N.M. – CSU-Pueblo closed out its 2010 campaign with a powerful bang Saturday, running roughshod over Western New Mexico, claiming a 45-17 victory over the Mustangs. With the win, CSU-Pueblo ends its year with a 9-2 mark, equalling the all-time school record win mark set by the 1980 and 1982 teams (9-1 and 9-2, respectively). The Pack cruised to the win by virtue of a strong start, opening up a 21-0 lead in the first quarter to put the game out of reach early, and the ability to force multiple turnovers. CSU-Pueblo intercepted three passes, including two picks by Josh Costa (So., Nanakuli, Hawaii), one of which came in the end zone in the fourth quarter, as the ThunderWolves forced four turnovers. The turnovers were enough to un-do the Mustangs’ spread offense, an offensive set that had given the Pack fits all season long, allowing CSU-Pueblo to employ its “bend but don’t break” defense, which gave up 448 yards of offense but just 17 points. Offensively, the Pack was led by its offensive spark, tailback Jesse Lewis (Jr., Loveland, Colo.).

The Harlon Hill Award candiate for top Division II player strengthened his resume for the honor, running for 185 yards and equaling a career high with three rushing scores. His first score broke a CSU-Pueblo single season record for most rushing touchdowns in a single season. He finished 2010 with 14 rushing scores, which equalled a CSU-Pueblo single season record for most total touchdowns, owned by Herman Heard in 1982 and 1983. After reaching 1,391 rushing yards for the season Saturday, Lewis will likely finish in the top five nationally in rushing and be a strong candidate

1909-1969 The Colorado Faculty Athletic Conference was formed March 6, 1909 by the following four charter members: University of Colorado, Colorado A&M (now Colorado State University), Colorado College and Colorado School of Mines. In 1910, the league changed its name to the Rocky Mountain Faculty Athletic Conference (RMFAC). The University of Denver and University of Utah joined the conference but Colorado College had a fallout with Colorado School of Mines and dropped from the conference. In 1914, Colorado College rejoined and with the addition of Utah State University, the membership was at seven. Montana State University joined in 1917 and Brigham Young University joined in 1918 as the conference grew to nine members. Membership reached 12 when the University of Wyoming joined in 1921, and Western State College and the University of Northern Colorado joined in 1924. A major defection occurred as seven schools dropped out of the RMFAC to form the Mountain States Conference (also known as the Skyline Conference). Leaving the RMFAC were Colorado, Colorado State, Brigham Young, Utah State, Wyoming and Denver. The RMFAC continued to operate under faculty administration with five schools - Colorado College, Colorado Mines, Montana State, Northern Colorado and Western State. Much athletic activity was curtailed during the World War II years, but in 1948 Idaho State University joined the league to bring the membership to six. Adams State College became the seventh member in 1956, but Idaho State left in 1958 and Montana State departed in 1959, reducing the membership back to five schools. In 1967, the name changed to what it is cur-

rently known as, the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference (RMAC). In a meeting of the presidents of 15 schools, the presidents assumed control of the league from the faculty, changed the name and the RMAC underwent the most radical change in its 58-year history. Ten institutions were added to the conference and two divisions were formed (Mountains and Plains). Joining the conference were Emporia State, Fort Hays State University, Fort Lewis College, University of Nebraska-Omaha, Pittsburg State, Kan., University of Southern Colorado, Southern Utah State, Regis University, Washburn, Kan., Western New Mexico and Westminster, Utah. Colorado College was not included in the new plan and New Mexico Highlands University joined in 1968 but left in 1969 due to financial aid restrictions of the RMAC. 1970-79 The two divisions of the RMAC were split into separate conferences for economic reasons in 1972. The Mountain Division kept the RMAC name, the Plains Division became known as the Great Plains Athletic Conference. The two allied conferences worked under the name of the Mountain and Plains Intercollegiate Athletic Association (MPIAA). RMAC membership stood at eight with ASC, CSM, FLC, Regis, Southern Utah State, Western New Mexico, WSC and Westminster. New Mexico Highlands became the ninth member in 1974 and Mesa State College became the 10th in 1975. In 1976, the MPIAA was dissolved for economic reasons and the two conferences went their separate ways. In the shuffle, Northern Colorado became independent and Southern Colorado transferred to the RMAC. Paul Brechler became the commissioner of the RMAC and was assisted by his wife Wanda. The 197879 season marked the first year in which the conference would sponsor women’s sports. In 1979, Westminster dropped its intercollegiate

athletic program, leaving the RMAC with 10 institutions.

1980-1989 In 1983, Regis became an independent and in 1985 Southern Colorado drops several sports, including football. In 1986, Southern Utah State departed the RMAC and membership dropped to eight. In 1988, New Mexico Highlands withdrew. The RMAC took another new look in 1989 when Chadron State College, Fort Hays State University, Kearney State (now the University of Nebraska at Kearney and current member) and Wayne State announced intentions to join. Southern Colorado and Western New Mexico stated they were leaving the RMAC in 1990.

1990-1993 During the 1990 RMAC Spring Meetings, Kearney State and Wayne State withdrew their membership. Southern Colorado and Western New Mexico left on July 1, 1990 and Fort Lewis said it would leave in 1991. Brechler retired as RMAC commissioner and his wife, Wanda, was named commissioner for the 1990-91 RMAC year. During the 1990-91 season, Fort Lewis was retained as an associate member for the sports of football, wrestling and softball while New Mexico Highlands rejoined the conference. In August 1991, Kurt Patberg was named the RMAC commissioner. During the 1992-93 season, all RMAC institutions gave a three-year commitment to the league and the league moved into the NCAA Division II ranks. Anheuser-Busch, Rawlings and the Ramada Hotel-Denver West joined forces with the RMAC as corporate sponsors. A new logo was adopted and the RMAC Seal would be used for official league items only. The RMAC WeekIn-Review television show on Prime Sports Network (now Fox Sports Rocky Mountain) was developed, post season basketball tournaments were held and conference baseball

Rocky mountain athletic conference teams participated in the Mile High Intercollegiate Baseball League. Adams State won the RMAC’s initial two NCAA Division II titles with victories in men’s and women’s cross country in 1992 and 1993. Phillips 66 then became a major corporate sponsor.

1994-1999 Conference growth continued in 1994 with the addition of two new members and the hiring of a second full-time staff person. Fort Lewis resumed full membership and Nebraska-Kearney was voted in as a member, both effective in July. Also in July, a full-time Assistant to the Commissioner/Media Relations Director was hired. In November 1995, Adams State won its fourth straight national title in women’s cross country, while Western State won it first NCAA Division II national title in men’s cross country. The crowning moment for the conference came in March of 1996, when Fort Hays State became only the third Division II team in the 40-year history of NCAA Division II men’s basketball to finish the season undefeated. The Tigers finished the year 34-0 en-route to FHSU’s first Division II national championship and the conference’s first national champion in men’s basketball. Colorado Christian University, Metropolitan State College of Denver, Regis University and the University of Southern Colorado joined the league as full members on July 1, 1996. The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs joined as an associate member also on July 1, 1996. University of Denver was accepted as an affiliate member. The RMAC now consists of a two-division, 14 member conference for the sports of volleyball and men’s and women’s basketball. The league office also had a new look as the conference offices moved from Golden, Colo. to Colorado Springs, Colo. Also in 1996, the RMAC’s intern position of Operations Coordinator was expanded to a full-time position and the Assistant to the Commissioner/Media Relations Director position changed titles to Assistant Commissioner/Media Relations Director. The RMAC came under new direction in 1997 as Tom Wistrcill was named commissioner, replacing Kurt Patberg who resigned to pursue his doctorate degree. Wistrcill began his appointment August 15, 1997 after serving a three-year term as Commissioner of the Northern Sun Conference. The University of Denver completed its one-year term as an outgoing affiliate member of the RMAC, and began competition as an NCAA Division I institution for the 1998-99 year. CU-Colorado Springs completed its first year as a full member of the RMAC after becoming the 14th such institution on July 1, 1997. San Francisco State competed as an associate member of the RMAC in the sport of wrestling for the first time in 1997-98. In 1998, the RMAC men’s and women’s post-season basketball tournament became the first conference event to be broadcast on live television as Fox Sports Rocky Mountain carried the two championship games to a regional cable television audience.

2000-2009 In 2000, Metro State joined Adams State and Western State as national champions - with Adams State claiming the women’s cross country title, Western State claiming the men’s cross country title and Metro State winning the men’s basketball championship. Also, Fort Hays State advanced to the finals of the Division II Baseball World Series and the Mesa State softball team earned its first ever trip to the Softball World Series. After a three year tenure with the RMAC, Tom Wistrcill stepped down as commissioner in November 2000. The council of presidents selected Joel R. Smith as the new commissioner of the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference in February 2001. Western State College earned NCAA national titles in men’s and women’s cross country in 2001 and 2002. Metro State posted their second NCAA men’s basketball national championship team in three years (2002, 2000). In July 2002, Smith implemented the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Hall of Fame and the first induction class was Paul and Wanda Brechler. The Brechler’s were the first full-time Commissioner’s of the RMAC. The following year in March 2003, the RMAC basketball tournament (RMAC Shootout) was moved to Colorado Springs for three years (2003-2005) at the World Arena. In 2006, the tournament was moved to Pueblo, Colo. at the State Fair Events Center and the tournament has been held there ever since. The RMAC’s national dominance in cross country continued as Adams State won six straight women’s titles between 2003-2008. The Grizzly men’s team took home the national title in 2003 before Western State reclaimed the title in 2004 and 2005. The conference’s monthly television show, The RMAC Showcase, debuted on Altitude Sports & Entertainment in September 2004. For three straight years the RMAC won NCAA soccer championships. Metro State returned to the national spotlight, this time in women’s soccer. Head coach Danny Sanchez led the Roadrunners to the 2004 and 2006 NCAA championship titles. Coached by Jeremy Gunn, the Fort Lewis College men’s soccer team went 22-0-1 in 2005 to win their first ever national championship. In the fall of 2006, Fort Hays State University left the RMAC to join the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association (MIAA). Due to Fort Hays State’s departure, Western New Mexico University, located in Silver City, N.M., joined the RMAC. Adams State won three of the RMAC’s four national championships in 2008 as they swept the cross country titles and won the NCAA Women’s Indoor Track & Field championship in Mankato, Minn. Nebraska-Kearney scored their first ever national championship in wrestling, winning the title by .5 points over Minnesota State, Mankato. Since joining the NCAA, the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference is home to 40 NCAA national champions and more than 30 NCAA runners-up.

four-year era

In 1963, Pueblo Junior College became Southern Colorado State College, and its athletic programs began competing against other four-year schools for the first time. Though the football program’s success as a junior college was admittedly mediocre, the program would be far more successful as a four-year program.

MIKE FRIEDMAN 1974-83 The most successful coach in CSU-Pueblo history, Friedman’s squads became the first to garner national rankings and a national playoff berth (in 1982). Friedman’s legacy as a great coach was tarnished, however, by his ability to follow the rules, as evidenced by his use of an ineligible player in 1977 and the reason behind his dismissal in 1983 – doctoring game tape that was sent to an opponent.

CSU-PUEBLO & NCAA DIVISION II Why Choose Division II?

Many Division II student-athletes had opportunities to play in NCAA Division I or Division III or the NAIA. But they chose Division II, and for almost all of them, the choice is a good one. A “balance” exists that emphasizes both academic excellence and athletics achievement, and an environment is created that leads to the studentathlete’s total personal development. Almost none of the 80,000 student-athletes competing in Division II this year will receive a full athletics grant that covers all of their expenses, but most of them will receive some financial aid to help them through school. For the rest of their expenses, they’re on their own – using scholarships, student loans and employment earnings just like most other students attending college. This healthy partnership is the essence of Division II, where student-athletes are valued for their athletics contribution and for being an important part of the overall student body. Division II student-athletes play at a competitive level, and they most often play close to home. Division II emphasizes regional competition so that student-athletes miss less class time because of travel. Division II studentathletes receive value-based educations at regional institutions that often feature high teacher-to-student ratios.

Many former CSU-Pueblo student athletes have enjoyed productive careers, both inside and outside athletics. Athlete

Why Did CSU-Pueblo Choose Division II?

Colorado State University-Pueblo is proud to be an NCAA Division II institution. Division II’s conservative fiscal model permits CSU-Pueblo to conduct high-level athletics that are fully integrated into the overall University. Rather than being financially self-sustaining, almost all Division II programs, CSU-Pueblo included, receive support from the institution itself – just like other departments of the college or university. Division II’s regionalization philosophy encourages responsible spending by limiting travel. It also creates a local emphasis that lowers recruiting expenses. What that means for CSU-Pueblo student-athletes is a balanced atmosphere for personal and athletic growth. At the Division I level, student-athletes are regularly defined by their athletic contributions, with their classroom contributions seen as somewhat secondary. At the Division III level, though, it is almost reversed, where student-athletes receive no athletic grants for competition. Division II offers a balance between athletics and academics, enhancing the overall student-athlete experience.

Does it work?

CSU-Pueblo is proud to be member of the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference, which includes 14 universities from the Rocky Mountain region. The RMAC allows for elite competition as well as ideal travel partners for RMAC competition. The average expense for a Division II program is only 36 percent of that for a typical Division I-AA program. The largest reported athletics budget in Division II is only about 10 percent higher than the average athletics budget in Division I-AA.

Do fans support Division II?

They do, both at CSU-Pueblo and in Division II as a whole. Division II football set an attendance record in 2005 with 2,989,274 fans. In fact, Division II total football attendance has increased each year since 2002, the only NCAA division or subdivision that can make such a claim. Division II men’s basketball also set an all-time attendance record in 2004. At CSU-Pueblo, the ThunderWolves enjoyed some of the best attendance in all of Division II. The ThunderWolves’ football program has been ranked in the top 20 nationally in attendance each of the past two seasons, and both years the Pack outdrew Colorado’s only Football Championship Subdivision program, Northern Colorado, by over 2,000 fans per game. In 2009-10, CSU-Pueblo also led the RMAC in attendance in men’s and women’s basketball.

During his tenure as the T-Wolves’ head coach, Folda guided the team to 14 consecutive seasons with an above .500 finish and extended the school’s streak of non-losing seasons to 25. He established a coaching philosophy of tough, man-to-man defense and fast break offense.

In 1991, Folda led his team to one of the best seasons in school history. That squad set a school record for wins in a season (25), won the first-ever CAC Tournament Championship and qualified for the NAIA National Tournament. That same year, Folda was crowned the NAIA District VII Coach of the Year. In 1997-98, Folda guided the ThunderWolves to a school-record 14 consecutive wins and their first RMAC West Division title.

He led his team to consecutive NCAA Division II National Tournament appearances and was the Bears’ top scorer as a senior, averaging 15.1 points per game. Folda earned all-conference, all-region and honorable mention All-American.

Folda received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Northern Colorado before earning his Masters degree from Eastern Washington. Folda, and his wife, Rosalie, have three children: Cyndi, Duke, and Mike, who played guard for the T-Wolves in 2001 and 2002. He also has six grandchildren.
