2013 SEASON OUTLOOK Tough Defensive Line Tandem

Carthel Era Begins in Commerce

2013 signals a new era in A&M-Commerce Lion football as Colby Carthel takes over the helm of the program. Carthel became the 19th head coach in Lion history on January 22, 2013, and brings with him an impressive resume. A proven winner, Carthel spent the last eight years as the defensive coordinator at West Texas A&M, helping lead the Buffs to the second-best winning percentage among all Texas programs during that span. He has mentored over 70 All-LSC selections, 29 All-Americans and 13 players that have gone on to the NFL. Known as one of the top recruiters in the region, Carthel is eager to return the Lions to the tradition of winning they are accustomed to.

While a handful of positions have question marks heading into 2013, one of the most stable positions will be the defensive line where A&M-Commerce returns a pair of senior starters in Tevin Moore and Jake Williams. The duo combined for 52 tackles last season, including 10 tackles for loss and a pair of sacks, helping lead A&M-Commerce to the topranked pass defense in the LSC. Moore is hoping to repeat his performance as an All-LSC performer in 2010 while Williams is ready to make a statement in his final season. Junior Brandon Turner is also back to add depth and stability, having a career year with 21 tackles, 5.5 tackles for loss and three sacks.

Young, Energetic Staff Ready to Win

One of the biggest holes A&M-Commerce has to fill will be at the linebacker position, particularly finding someone to step up to replace Danny Mason. But the linebacker position has always been one that has been a strong point of the team, and a handful of returners should continue that tradition. Four experienced seniors return to the squad as Alan Beatty, Matt Claggett, Jeremy Dotson and Stephen Ford will be vying for the starting nod. All three have at least two years of action for A&M-Commerce, and will be teamed up with sophomore Kristoddie Woods who impressed the coaching staff during spring workouts.

Carthel won’t be the only new face on the A&M-Commerce this season as he has brought with him a core of young and energetic coaches who are proven winners. Matt Storm came with Carthel from West Texas and will serve as the Lions’ offensive coordinator while Justin Deason will serve as the defensive coordinator after a handful of successfull seasons at East Central. Both Storm and Deason have a number of assistants to guide the Lions, as Jared May (QB) and Wendel Davis (LB) joined Storm in following Carthel from Canyon, while Charles Burks (DB) and Desmund Farris (OL) will join reunite with Deason in Commerce after spending time at East Central. Rounding out the staff, Carthel has brought in Jack Taylor (DL), Kevin Bleil (WR) and Drew Hollingshead (QB). There will be a few familair faces on the A&M-Commerce sideline as fomer players Yogi Gallegos (RB), Danny Mason (DL) and Tyler Rawlings (WR) will each return to serve in a coaching capacity.

Replacing Mason Senior GARRETT SMITH is the Lions’ top returning receiver, hauling in 51 catches for 581 yards in 2012, being named All-LSC honorable mention.

Smith Looks to Build Off 2012 Season

Senior wide receiver Garrett Smith bust onto the scene in 2012, emerging as the Lions’ top receiver with 51 catches for 581 yards. Smith was recognized as an All-LSC honorable mention selection and will be looked to as the core of the A&M-Commerce receiving corps. He will team up with junior Tevin Godfrey, the Lions’ third-leading receiver last season, to serve as the anchors of the receiving group. Seth Smith and Salim Zongo also caught passes for A&M-Commerce in 2012 and had productive spring workouts.

Offensive Question Marks

A number of question marks hang over the offensive side of the ball heading into 2013 as Carthel looks to institute his new system. At the forefront is the quarterback position, where for the third-straight year, A&M-Commerce will be looking for its starting signal caller. Deric Davis returns after starting six games in 2012 and throwing for just shy of 1,000 yards, but will face some stiff competition to win the starting job. Running back is another area the Lions are looking for a breakthrough player, losing three of its top four rushers from 2012. A handful of new players are eager to take snaps and prove their worth in the A&M-Commerce backfield. They will also need some key players to block for them as the Lions return a few key members of the offensive line, including Jordan Betz, Gary Aguilar and Jaylyn McDuffie. Carthel is hoping a new breed of blockers up front will help pave the way for an established running attack, something the Lions have struggled with for the past two seasons.

LionAthletics.com • #WeAreLions

Experience in the Defensive Backfield

A&M-Commerce ranked first in the Lone Star Conference and among the top-20 nationally in passing defense in 2012, allowing just 180 yards per game through the air. Part of that success is attributed to the defensive secondary, which returns a pair of two year starters in seniors Marcus Fore and Joel Wren. The duo had their most productive seasons as Lions last fall as Wren is the Lions’ leading returning tackler, garnering 67 stops with 3.5 tackles for loss and four pass breakups. Fore notched 33 tackles with a pair of tackles for loss and a sack while also recording an interception for A&M-Commerce. Two other Lions made their marks in 2012 as Shaquelle Massey and Robert Wheeler combined for 51 tackles for A&M-Commerce and should see significant snaps in 2013.

Frosch Set For Final Season

One of the most consistent players for the Lions in 2012 was punter Cameron Frosch, who returns for his fourth season as the A&M-Commerce punter. Last season was the best of his career as the senior from Rowlett averaged 42.3 yards per kick, which is tied for the third-best single-season average in program history.

2013 SEASON OUTLOOK Facing the Big Boys

Last season, A&M-Commerce notched a program first, facing a Division I FBS opponent when it took on UT-San Antonio in front of over 30,000 fans at the Alamodome. The Lions have another Division I opponent on this year’s slate, making a trip south to take on Houston Baptist on November 9th. The game against the Huskies is proving to be an unknown as 2013 marks HBU’s first-ever football season as the Lions will be the Huskies’ first-ever Homecoming opponent.

Harvey Martin Classic Where it Belongs

Senior JOEL WREN is the Lions’ top returning tackler, tallying 67 stops in 2012, including 3.5 tackles for loss, while anchoring the defensive backfield.

A three-year starter, Frosch is averaging 38.2 yards per punt for his career with 24 kicks of 50 yards or more, including a 76-yarder in 2012.

It’s Been A While

A&M-Commerce has a number of intriguing match-ups among its 11-game schedule in 2013, including a pair of matchups against old school foes that have sat dormant for decades. The Lions open up the season facing Sul Ross State for the first time since 1975 after the two teams met each season between beginning in 1950 with A&M-Commerce holding an 18-5-3 record against their former LSC foes. A&M-Commerce also welcomes McMurry to Memorial Stadium in October, marking the first meeting between the two since 1971. The Lions lead the all-time series 9-5, dating back to the 1927 season.

Cowboys Stadium, Round Three

For the past five season, A&M-Commerce has staged the Harvey Martin Classic, honoring the Lion All-American and Super Bowl champion. The previous five games have taken place at both the Cotton Bowl and Cowboys Stadium, but for the first time, the Classic returns to the place where Martin made a name for himself Memorial Stadium. A&M-Commerce will bring the classic to Commerce when it takes on LSC rival Midwestern State on September 28th, putting the game on the same field where Martin was one of the most feared defensive players of his era.

Son Takes on Father in Carthel Bowl

As soon as Colby Carthel was announced as the Lions’ new head coach, one game immediately got circled on a handful of calenders. That game will take place on September 21st when A&M-Commerce travels to Canyon to face reigning LSC co-champion West Texas A&M and Carthel will square off head-to-head against his father, Don, who is the head coach of the Buffs. The younger Carthel spent eight years as the defensive coordinator for West Texas A&M as the game marks the first time in LSC history a father and son will square off as opposing head coaches.

For the third-straight season, A&M-Commerce will take the field at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington as part of the 2013 Lone Star Football Festival. This year, however, the Lions will square off against a new opponent, facing Delta State of the Gulf South Conference on Friday, September 13th. The Lions are 2-2 all-time against the Statesmen, with the last meeting resulting in a 19-14 Delta State victory in 1994. The first two trips to the world’s preeminent football venue didn’t turn out as the Lions would like in a pair of lopsided losses to Midwestern State, but A&M-Commerce is hoping a new foe will help provide for a better experience.

HEAD COACH COLBY CARTHEL COLBY CARTHEL HEAD COACH Angelo State University, 2000 First Season at A&M-Commerce

A

new era in A&M-Commerce Lion football began on January 23, 2013 when Colby Carthel was introduced as the 19th head football coach in Lion program history. “We are excited to welcome Colby and his wife, Sarah, to A&M-Commerce,” Ivey said. “His pedigree for coaching is well documented, along with his passion and energy to be successful. Obviously, he has been part of some very successful programs and he knows what it takes to win. His work ethic is relentless and I am excited to have him on board and look forward to watching him turn our football program around.” Carthel comes to Commerce with strong ties to the Lone Star Conference, spending the last seven seasons as the defensive coordinator at West Texas A&M and playing a key role in establishing the Buffs as one of the top teams in the region. During his seven years at West Texas A&M, the Buffs have captured four Lone Star Conference championships while making an appearance in the postseason each year, including a pair of Kanza Bowl championships and a regional championship in 2012. During Carthel’s tenure as the Buff ’s defensive coordinator, West Texas A&M has compiled a 69-20 record with a 77.5 winning percentage. That win total and winning per-

centage ranks second among all collegiate football programs in the state of Texas, trailing only Texas Christian University. In 2012, the Buffs closed out the regular season leading the Lone Star Conference in nearly every defensive category, sitting first in total, scoring and rushing defense while sitting third in pass defense behind A&M-Commerce. West Texas A&M also led the nation in sacks, setting a single-season NCAA record with 44, highlighted by National Player of the Year Ethan Westbrook’s 19.5, which is tied for the second-most in NCAA history as the Buffs finished the year ranked fourth nationally. Since arriving at West Texas, Carthel’s defensive unit has consistently ranked among the leaders in the Lone Star Conference. The Buffs have ranked among the top-four in total defense five times during his seven years, including leading the LSC in 2011, where they were also tops in scoring defense and passing defense. During his time in Canyon, Carthel has overseen a defensive unit that has produced 70 All-Lone Star Conference selections, including 27 first team honorees, with seven LSC Players of the Year. In addition, seven of his players have been recognized with over 29 All-America honors, including four first team All-Americans (Jared Brock, Brandon Swain, Eugene Sims, Ethan Westbrooks). Carthel has also earned a reputation as one of the top recruiters in the region as he has personally recruited or coached 13 players at the Division II level that have gone on to careers in the National Football League. Carthel’s players have not only excelled on the playing field but in the classroom as well as he has had seven of his Buffs earn Academic All-Lone Star Conference honors.

LionAthletics.com • #WeAreLions

HEAD COACH COLBY CARTHEL Prior to joining the staff at West Texas A&M, Carthel spent six seasons as the defensive line coach and recruiting coordinator at Abilene Christian. During his time with the Wildcats, Carthel saw his defensive linemen earn multiple accolades, including 13 All-Lone Star Conference selections and four All-Region honorees. He helped bring three-time All-American Danieal Manning to Abilene, who currently plays for the Houston Texans. Carthel was a four year letterwinner at Angelo State from 1996-2000 in both football and track and field, starting at middle linebacker for the Ram football team. He helped lead Angelo State to the LSC South Division championship as a senior in 1999 and was a three-time Academic All-LSC selection. Carthel also competed in the discus for the Angelo State track and field program, placing fourth in the LSC Championships as a senior. A native of Friona, Carthel graduated from Angelo State in 2000 with a degree in biology following his graduation from Friona High School in 1996. During his high school career, he helped lead Friona to its first district title in 29 years as a senior while placing fourth in the discus at the state championships. He later would earn his master’s degree in interdisciplinary studies from West Texas A&M in 2007.

DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR University of Central Oklahoma, 2003 First Season at A&M-Commerce

Matt Storm is in his first season at A&M-Commerce, serving as the co-offensive coordinator as well as handling the primary duties for the Lions’ offensive line. Storm comes to Commerce from West Texas A&M where he spent one season with the Buffs, helping lead West Texas to the NCAA national semifinals with a 12-3 record. During his time in Canyon, Storm helped the Buffs lead the Lone Star Conference in total offense per game (474.9 ypg) while ranking second in scoring offense (38.6 ppg) and fourth in rushing offense (142.9 ypg). Prior to his time in Canyon, Storm spent six seasons as the defensive line coach and recruiting coordinator at his alma mater, East Central University. One of his most productive seasons came in 2011 as every starter on the defensive line for the Tigers was named All-Great American Conference including Jason Catching, who led the conference in sacks and was named the GAC Defensive Player of the Year. Storm worked with both the offensive and defensive lines in his stint at ECU and also headed up the coaching staff ’s recruiting efforts. He also was a key member of the coaching staff that helped the Tigers capture the 2010 Lone Star Conference North Division championship. Storm had a stand-out playing career with the Tigers on the offensive line. The two-year starter earned all-conference honors both seasons and was named the team’s lineman of the year each of those years and was a team captain in 2005. Prior to his arrival at ECU, Storm was a two-year starter at Mt.

Justin Deason is in his first season as the defensive coordinator for A&M-Commerce. Deason comes to Commerce from East Central University where he spent the last five seasons as the Tigers’ defensive coordinator. His defensive unit was ranked 15th in the nation in 2011 in fumble recoveries (16) and third down defense as opponents converted just 30.9 percent of the time. ECU also ranked 18th in turnovers forced (31), 20th in turnover margin and 43rd in total defense. He has coached defensive All-Americans in the last three years, including defensive end Armonty Bryant in 2010 and 2012, outside linebacker Jason Catchings in 2012 and cornerback Dontae Smith in 2011 along with back-to-back conference defensive players of the year in Bryant (Lone Star Conference North in 2010) and Catchings (Great American Conference in 2011). In 2012 he had nine players earn All-GAC honors, while seven earned the honors in 2011. The list includes back-to-back honors for Bryant, Catchings, Brian Gonzalez and Norris Wrenn. Wrenn finished his career as the all-time leading tackler at ECU, breaking the record set by NFL player Clifford Thirft in 1978, with 278. Deason was also key in developing the Tigers first NFL Draft pick since 1979, when Bryant was chosen as the No. 217 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft by the Cleveland Browns. Bryant is just the fifth player from ECU to be drafted into the NFL after setting the ECU career sacks record, with 27.5. Deason was instrumental in ECU’s run to a Lone Star Conference North Division title in 2010, guiding a big-play Tiger defensive unit, led by Bryant, who was third in the nation in sacks (led all defensive linemen in the country), along with all-region performer and cornerback Dontae Smith. His 2010 Tiger defensive unit was ranked 13th in the nation in sacks per game (3.09) and tied for 21st in total passes intercepted with 17. ECU also led the LSC in sacks, interceptions and turnovers gained. The Tigers scored seven defensive touchdowns in 2010 and registered their first shutout since the 1993 season. Since joining NCAA Division II, his 2010 defense set the record for sacks (33) and interceptions (17) in a season and tied the mark for forcing turnovers (28). Deason had a prior coaching stint at ECU from 2004-05 as special teams coordinator and linebackers coach. He coached five all-conference players and one All-American. He had the preseason linebacker of the year in 2005, a punt returner who finished 10th nationally in 2005 and punter who was rated 12th nationally. The net punting for ECU in 2005 was 35th best in the country and his kickoff unit was among the best in 2004, holding opponents to limited yards in net returns. At West Texas A&M in 2006, Deason saw one of his linebackers make three different postseason All-American teams. The WT kickoff unit ranked 30th in the country, a punter ranked fifth in per punt average and a punt returner finished 17th in the nation in per return average. One kickoff specialist finished 19th in the nation and a punt team was 13th nationally in net punt coverage as he coached four all-conference players. With WT in 2008, his specialty teams were ranked among the best in the nation with a pair of return specialists garnering All-Lone Star Conference South honors. Deason is a 2003 graduate of the University of Central Oklahoma after playing two seasons as a linebacker at Oklahoma State. He was a two-year letterman at OSU and played in the Houston Bowl in which the Cowboys claimed a victory. Deason also played in both of OSU’s wins over top-ranked and Bedlam rival Oklahoma. He also made appearances against highly-ranked teams in Nebraska, UCLA, Texas A&M and Texas. His mentor is long time defensive coordinator Bill Clay. Deason and his wife, Autumn, have a son, Jaxon, and a daughter, Aubrey.

By Joseph Hambrick Commerce Journal COMMERCE — Colby Carthel, head coach of the Texas A&M University-Commerce football team, said he lives and breathes recruiting. Carthel signed 37 players on National Signing Day, Wednesday, February 6 - all high school recruits, and all from Texas. “It’s been non-stop, we’ve hit 106 schools in three days,” he said. “These are our foundation.” When finding the players for his team, Carthel said there were three categories he looks for: athletic ability, good character and high academic scores. “Those high school coaches know who the best are,” he said. Carthel said these players, mostly local talent with 64.9 percent being within 150 miles from Commerce, signed with A&M-Commerce because they believe in the program. “They put a lot of trust in us and believe in us,” he said. “They appreciate what we’re doing here. These are our cornerstone players.” According to Carthel, a few of the names stood out as great high school players, but added that there are no guarantees when it comes to transitioning to college football. “They’re all very good high school players,” he said. “But some turn out to be flops while some turn out to be all American.”

Carthel said the two quarterbacks he signed, Draze Lawliss, from Justin, and Luke Walters, hailing from Pleasanton, show promise. Even though Carthel signed 37 in one day, he said he’s not finished yet. “We’re going to keep recruiting and try to sign 15 or 20 more,” he said. “We will evaluate what we have here, see what we have this spring and go from there.” College football is a big leap from high school, and Carthel said he will “trim the fat” when it comes to who he thinks is cut out to play at Memorial Stadium. Carthel said the city and university were the key selling points in bringing so many players to Commerce. “We sold them a vision,” he said. “We have a great campus and a great city, this place sells itself.”

COMMERCE, Texas – A&M-Commerce struggled to find its footing in the season opener at Memorial Stadium, falling behind early as it drops a 31-6 decision to Southeastern Oklahoma. With a handful of new faces, especially on the offensive side of the ball, the Lions were eager to see some results right out of the gates. But the offensive was unable to find its groove as A&M-Commerce generated just 185 yards of total offense, compared to 335 for the Savage Storm. Quarterback Deric Davis completed 12 of 26 passes for 138 yards and a touchdown, while Tyler Rawlings emerged as Davis’ favorite target, hauling in five catches for 60 yards. Tevin Godfrey accounted for 18 yards on a pair of catches, including the Lions’ lone touchdown, while Jamar Mosley had three receptions out of the backfield for 16 yards. On the ground, Godfrey led the way with 32 yards on two carries while Mosely added 10 yards on five touches while Marcus French rushed four times for nine yards. One of the main reasons for the Lions’ inability to establish any momentum on offense was the lack of time on the field as Southeastern Oklahoma State held the ball for just under 40 minutes, leaving the A&M-Commerce offense with just 20 minutes to work with. That extra time on the field for the Lion defense proved to be too much, although a number of players had impressive performances. Danny Mason set a career-best with 16 tackles, including nine unassisted and a sack, while Joel Wren and J.T. Bates each added eight stops on the night. Marlin Terrell was second behind Mason in solo tackles, recording seven. The teams were even through the majority of the first quarter as both seemed to be trying to work out some first-game jitters. Near the end of the stanza, the Lions seemed to be clicking, moving the ball deep into Savage Storm territory. But SEOSU linebacker Houston Slemp stepped in front of a Davis pass and returned it the distance, rumbling 79 yards to put the Savage Storm on top 7-0 at the end of the first. Southeastern Oklahoma would add a 28-yard field goal midway through the second quarter, then CJ Kirk broke off a 23-yard touchdown run with just under two minutes remaining as the Lions found themselves down 17-0 at intermission. The first drive of the second half looked promising for A&M-Commerce as the Lions moved the ball down the field and stringing together a 10-play, 70-yard drive that spanned just under six minutes. Davis capped the drive by finding Godfrey in the back of the endzone for a three-yard score. But in another trend from 2011, the extra point was botched as A&M-Commerce was only able to cut the deficit to 17-6. That scoring drive was quickly matched by the Storm, covering 71 yards in just four plays to take the lead at 24-6 thanks to a 38-yard touchdown pass from Jercolby Bradley to Anthony Gale. Needing a stop to try and generate a comeback at the start of the fourth quarter, A&M-Commerce seemed to have momentum on their side as the Lions were able to pin Southeastern Oklahoma down at the one-yard line off a punt right at the beginning of the fourth quarter. But the Savage Storm covered 99 yards in 16 plays, burning 12 minutes off the clock before Kirk ran it in from one yard out to put the Storm up 31-6 and sealing the Lions’ season-opening fate. With the victory, Southeastern Oklahoma snaps a two-game skid to A&M-Commerce and improves to 9-8-1 in the all-time series record. The Savage Storm also improved to 6-4-1 in games in Commerce while the Lions have now dropped two-straight season openers and nine of their last 11.

TYLER RAWLINGS

UT-SAN ANTONIO

A&M-COMMERCE 16 SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 8 ALAMODOME • SAN ANTONIO SAN ANTONIO, Texas – A&M-Commerce’s first-ever game against a Division I FBS opponent is one that will be remembered for quite a while as the Lions gave UT-San Antonio a fight, rallying in the second half before falling to the Roadrunners 27-16 at the Alamodome. Quarterback Deric Davis completed 18-of-32 passes for 175 yards and a pair of touchdowns and two interceptions. Wide receiver Tyler Rawlings led the way for the Lions with six catches for 53 yards while also completing an 18-yard pass himself. Yardage-wise, Garrett Smith tallied 80 yards on three catches, including a 61-yard touchdown reception in the third quarter. Tevin Godfrey added five catches for 32 yards and a touchdown. Once again, the Lions struggled on the ground, totaling just 16 yards on 22 carries. San Antonio native Jamar Mosley led A&M-Commerce with 12 yards on seven carries while Davis scrambled for nine yards on 11 attempts. Defensively, Joel Wren led the way with 13 tackles, including five solo, while Danny Mason finished with nine, including a tackle for loss. J.T. Bates posted eight tackles at linebacker for A&M-Commerce while Matt Claggett and Robert Wheeler posted five. In front of 30,416 loud and energetic fans at the Alamodome in the Roadrunner’s home opener, the Lions seemed to feed off the energy early. A&M-Commerce came up with a big defensive stand midway through the first quarter, shutting down UT-San Antonio inside the red zone on their opening drive and forcing a field goal. After an A&M-Commerce three-and-out, UTSA responded with a 13-play, 71-yard drive that covered nearly seven minutes, capped by an 18-yard touchdown pass to give the Roadrunners the 10-0 lead at the end of the first quarter. The Lion offense began to click late in the first as A&M-Commerce moved the ball deep into Roadrunner territory, setting up a first and goal at the eight-yard line. But the drive stalled just inside the five as Jacob O’Neil hit a 21-yard field goal to put A&M-Commerce on the board at 10-3 with 10:44 remaining in the half. Both the Roadrunners and Lions exchanged three-and-outs on their next possessions, giving UT-San Antonio the ball on their own 29. The Roadrunners would make quick work, covering 71 yards in just seven plays to find the endzone once again and build their lead to 17-3 with 4:29 left in the second. A&M-Commerce was looking to cut into that lead and carry some momentum into halftime, but Davis’ pass was intercepted by Franky Anaya and returned to the seven-yard line, where the Roadrunners would punch it in two plays later and take a commanding 24-3 lead into halftime. The Roadrunners extended their advantage to 27-3 early in the third quarter, putting the Lions in a deep hole. But A&M-Commerce showed its resilience as after advancing to its own 39-yard line, Davis connected to a streaking Smith on the far sideline, who went the distance from 61-yards out. The extra point was botched, however, trimming the gap to 27-9. The Lion defense forced another stop on UT-San Antonio, giving the ball back to A&M-Commerce at the Lion 45-yard line. Davis then proceeded to lead A&M-Commerce down the field, capped by a five-yard touchdown strike to Godfrey on the first play of the fourth quarter as the Lions pulled to within 11 at 27-16. A&M-Commerce had its chances in the fourth quarter as well, recovering a Roadrunner fumble deep in Lion territory, but UT-San Antonio’s defense kept the A&M-Commerce offense at bay. The Roadrunners controlled the clock down the stretch, then sealed the victory with an interception late in the fourth quarter.

MIDWESTERN STATE

A&M-COMMERCE 14 THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 13 COWBOYS STADIUM • ARLINGTON

40

ARLINGTON, Texas – A&M-Commerce spotted 16th-ranked Midwestern State a 37-point lead and never recovered, getting routed by the Mustangs 65-14 at the kickoff game of the 2012 Lone Star Football Festival at Cowboys Stadium. A&M-Commerce was able to muster just 271 yards of offense on the day, compared to 555 for Midwestern State who racked up 376 yards on the ground off 43 carries. On the night, however, the Lions committed seven turnovers, coming in the form of four interceptions and three fumbles, which resulted in 38 points off turnovers for Midwestern State. The Lions also suffered in the field position battle as A&M-Commerce’s average starting position was their own 24 yard line, compared to the 44 yardline for the Mustangs. Junior quarterback Deric Davis completed 14-of-21 passes for 129 yards, a touchdown and an interception while rushing for 49 yards on 10 carries, including a 60-yard touchdown scamper - a play which was ranked No. 10 on ESPN SportsCenter’s Top Plays of the night. Davis led the A&M-Commerce quarterback brigade, which also saw action from junior Justin Duncan and senior Kevin Vye. Duncan was 6-of11 for 36 yards, but his night was highlighted by back-to-back interceptions to start the second half, the first of which was returned for a Mustang touchdown. Vye was 2-of-3 for 17 yards but also had a pick-six of his own. Among the Lion receivers, junior Garrett Smith led A&M-Commerce with five catches for 43 yards, posting a long of 20. Three different Lions had three catches on the day with Tyler Rawlings posting 27 yards, Tevin Godfrey racking up 17 yards and Jamar Mosley adding 15. Seth Smith had the long catch of the night, hauling in a 41-yard reception from Davis while Blake Ohm made his first collegiate touchdown count - reeling in a circus-like catch in the corner of the endzone late in the third quarter. A&M-Commerce had its best rushing output of the season, totaling 89 yards on 25 carries, although 60 of those yards came off Davis’ touchdown scamper. Behind the 49 yards from Davis, sophomore Wayne Chapman added 33 yards on seven carries while Mosley racked up 13 yards on seven carries. Defensively, senior Danny Mason led the way with seven tackles while Joel Wren notched six tackles, including a team-best four solo stops and a tackle for loss. Marlin Terrell, Jeremy Dotson and Kristoddie Woods each finished with four tackles with J.T. Bates, Cole Pitts and Marcus Fore each adding a tackle for loss. After a strong showing in the second half against UT-San Antonio Saturday, A&M-Commerce was looking to make another statement against Midwestern State, who was coming off an upset loss at Tarleton State last week. The Lions held the Mustangs to field goals on two of their first three possessions, but the offense stuttered as the Lions managed just 16 yards in the first quarter as Midwestern State pulled out to a 13-0 lead. Midwestern State continued to hold the Lions at bay in the second quarter, pulling ahead to a 23-0 halftime lead behind an extended touchdown drive and a 37-yard field goal as time expired. The second half fared no better for the Lions as Duncan’s first pass of the third quarter was returned 32 yards for a pick-six, followed by another intercepted on the next snap which triggered a 35-point outburst for the Mustangs. A&M-Commerce had a few highlights in the quarter, including Davis’ highlight reel rush and the touchdown grab from Ohm, but it was a true case of too little too late as Midwestern took a 58-14 lead into the fourth quarter before closing out the game with the 65-14 victory.

2012 GAME-BY-GAME RECAPS JAMAR MOSLEY

A&M-COMMERCE 21 A&M-KINGSVILLE 14 SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 29 MEMORIAL STADIUM • COMMERCE COMMERCE, Texas – Trailing by a touchdown late in the fourth quarter, A&M-Commerce rallied to tie the game with eight seconds remaining, then held off A&M-Kingsville in overtime to notch an emotional 21-14 victory on a rainy night at Memorial Stadium. Steady rains throughout the day in Commerce made for a damp and slick Memorial Stadium turf all evening as both teams struggled to find their footing early in the game. A&M-Commerce and A&M-Kingsville exchanged punts for the entire first quarter and the majority of the second quarter until Wheeler picked off a Bryan Ehrlich pass with just under five minutes remaining in the second half, giving the Lions the ball in Javelina territory. A&M-Commerce wasn’t able to do anything with the advantage and was forced to punt, pinning the Javelinas deep in their own their own territory. On A&M-Kingsville’s first play of the drive, Randall Toney coughed up the ball, the second of four turnovers on the night for the Javelinas, as Matt Claggett recovered at the A&M-Kingsville 16 yard line. Two plays later, Davis connected with Godfrey on a 16-yard lob into the endzone, giving A&M-Commerce it’s first lead of the 2012 season at 7-0, a lead the Lions would carry into halftime. After holding the Javelinas on their first possession of the second half, A&M-Commerce got the ball back on its own 20 yard line. The break A&M-Kingsville was looking for happened on the next play as the snap went over Davis’ head and into the endzone, where it was recovered by the Javelinas to knot the game at 7-7 early in the third quarter. Early in the fourth, the Javelinas finally notched an offensive touchdown as after getting the ball on the Lions’ 29-yard line, A&M-Kingsville needed just three plays to cover the 29 yards, capped by a 29-yard touchdown pass from Ehrlich to Robert Armstrong, giving the Javelinas the 14-7 lead with 11:18 remaining in the game. Taking over on its own 28-yard line with just over four minutes to go, the Lions began to move its way down the field. With just under a minute left, Davis connected with Smith for a 26-yard pass down to the one yard line with 25 seconds remaining. After three failed passes into the endzone, the Lions were once again faced with a fourth-down situation, only this time, Davis called his own number, eluded a pair of Javelina defenders and dove into the endzone with eight seconds remaining as the ensuing extra point tied the game at 14-14, sending the Chennault Cup showdown into overtime for the first time. A&M-Kingsville won the toss in overtime, giving the Lions the ball first. Following a two-yard rush by Mosely, Davis connected with Rawlings for a 16-yard completion down to the Javelina seven-yard line. That completion seemed to be nullified as a fumble on the next play pushed A&M-Commerce back to the 16-yard line. But on the next play, Davis hit Mosley for touchdown strike, giving A&M-Commerce the 21-14 lead. Now it was time for the Lion defense to make a stand, and they responded in a big way. Mason and Jake Williams combined for a nine-yard sack of Ehrlich on first down, followed by a pair of rushing plays which left A&M-Kingsville facing a fourth-and-eight on the Lion 23-yard line. A blitz from the far side by Cortney Craig forced an errant throw by Ehrlich, which fell harmlessly to the turf, as the Lions were able to raise the Chennault Cup on its home turf for the first time since the 1990 victory over West Alabama – the first year of the annual trophy game.

INCARNATE WORD

A&M-COMMERCE 9 SATURDAY, OCTOBER 6 BENSON STADIUM • SAN ANTONIO

SAN ANTONIO, Texas – A&M-Commerce dug itself a 24-0 hole in the first half against Incarnate Word and was unable to recover, dropping a 31-9 decision to the Cardinals. Deric Davis had a solid night for the Lions, completing 20-of-34 passes for 204 yards and no interceptions, but the Cardinals kept him off-balance all evening, sacking Davis a school-record eight times, including seven in the opening half. Davis also rushed 18 times for 13 yards and the Lions’ lone touchdown on the evening. Garrett Smith continued to emerge as one of Davis’ favorite targets, hauling in seven passes for 66 yards. Tyler Rawlings, Tevin Godfrey and Darryl Thompson each had three receptions for 48, 43 and 26 yards respectively. On the ground, Jamar Mosley led the way with 44 yards on nine carries in his San Antonio homecoming while Wayne Chapman had 20 yards on 10 carries. Defensively, Danny Mason and Robert Wheeler each tallied nine tackles as Wheeler had seven solo stops while Mason notched five solo and three tackles for loss including a pair of sacks. J.T. Bates finished with eight tackles as well while Marcus Fore had two stops and an 85-yard interception return, giving a spark to the Lions in the second quarter. Coming off the emotional overtime victory against Texas A&M-Kingsville last Saturday, A&M-Commerce was hoping to bring that momentum with it to San Antonio. But Incarnate Word came out striking in the first quarter, using a 22-yard field goal and a 61-yard touchdown pass from former Lion quarterback Zach Rhodes to Andrew Mocio to race out to a 10-0 lead midway through the opening quarter. The Cardinals were driving again late in the first quarter, but Fore picked off a Rhodes pass at the goal line and raced 85 yards downfield, finally being pulled down deep in Incarnate Word territory at the 15-yard line. However the Lions were unable to take advantage of the great opportunity as on fourth down, Davis was sacked and fumbled the ball, thwarting A&M-Commerce’s attempt to get on the board in the first quarter. Incarnate Word would take advantage of the Lion miscue, covering 63 yards in six plays before punching it in from three yards out to build a commanding 17-0 lead with just under 12 minutes remaining in the half. It then went from bad to worse for A&M-Commerce as after a missed 32-yard field goal by Jacob O’Neil, an Incarnate Word punt was muffed by returner Israel Hughes and recovered in the endzone by the Cardinals, giving Incarnate Word the 24-0 lead at the half. The third quarter has been the Lions’ strongest of the season and proved to be the case this night as well as A&M-Commerce began to mount a bit of a comeback. The Lions used a nine-play, 77-yard drive, capped by a seven-yard touchdown scramble from Davis, to cut the lead to 24-6,then O’Neil redeemed himself with a 32-yard field goal near the end of the third quarter, pulling the Lions to within two touchdowns at 24-9 heading into the fourth quarter. But the comeback was not to be as the Cardinal defense continued to step up, notching their program-record eighth sack on Davis early in the fourth quarter, then adding a 26-yard touchdown pass fro Rhodes to Brandon Yates with just under four minutes remaining, sealing the 31-9 win for Incarnate Word. The Cardinals improved to 3-0 all-time against the Lions and recorded a comfortable victory after the first two games of the series were both decided by just a single point. It could be the last game for a while between Incarnate Word and A&M-Commerce as the Cardinals will make the transition to Division I starting in 2013.

TARLETON STATE

A&M-COMMERCE 10 SATURDAY, OCTOBER 13 MEMORIAL STADIUM • COMMERCE COMMERCE, Texas – A combination of an aggressive Tarleton State offense, a struggling A&M-Commerce defense and a nearly two-hour weather delay proved to be too much to overcome as the Lions drop a 4310 decision to the Texans at Memorial Stadium Saturday evening. A&M-Commerce managed just 205 total yards on the evening, compared to 424 for Tarleton State, as the Lions struggled to find their groove, especially in the running game where A&M-Commerce tallied just 20 yards on 25 carries on the night, with 185 yards coming in the air. Deric Davis completed 13-of-29 passes for 116 yards and two interceptions through the first three and a half quarters. Kevin Vye engineered the final drive of the evening for the Lions and stepped in nicely, completing seven of his 10 attempts for 69 yards. Tyler Rawlings and Garrett Smith provided the usual one-two punch among the wide receivers as the duo each reeled in four catches for 50 yards. Salim Zongo had a career night, catching three passes for 37 yards as well. On the ground, Wayne Chapman led the way with 16 yards on four carries, followed by Marcus French’s eight yards on three carries. Vye also rushed for five yards on three attempts, including an 11-yard scramble late in the fourth quarter. But the highlight on the night for A&M-Commerce was its defense and special teams, led by linebacker Danny Mason, who led all players with 15 tackles, including 2.5 for loss and a pair of quarterback hurries. Tristian Davis added eight tackles while J.T. Bates notched seven, including five solo. Pablo Vasquez notched the highlight of the night for A&M-Commerce, recording his first career interception and returning it 43 yards for the Lions’ lone touchdown midway through the second quarter. On the Lions’ special teams, Jacob O’Neil was one-for-two on field goal attempts, connecting on a career-long 42-yarder in the second quarter to put the Lions on the board. Punter Cameron Frosch continued to be A&M-Commerce’s unsung hero in 2012, punting eight times while averaging 44.9 yards per kick, including a long of 58 yards. Seeking its 11th win over the Lions in its last 12 meetings, Tarleton State jumped out to a 10-0 lead after the opening quarter, thanks to an 18-yard field goal by Blake Barnes and a 34-yard touchdown strike from Aaron Doyle to Clifton Rhodes III as time expired. In the Lions’ first possession of the second quarter, A&M-Commerce drove down the field, then with a strong wind at his back, O’Neil drilled the career-best 42-yard field goal, pulling the Lions to within seven at 10-3. On the ensuing Tarleton State possession, Vasquez made a great break on the ball, snagging the Doyle pass at the 43 and scampered down the near sideline. Doyle and Vasquez collided at the goal line, but Vasquez was able to make contact with the pylon, tying the game at 10-10 with 9:21 remaining in the half. After a 15-yard touchdown run put the Texans up 17-10, Barnes took over, connection on all five of his field goal attempts through the first three quarters as Tarleton State built a 26-10 advantage late into the third. Mother Nature then asserted her authority as a strong thunderstorm complete with heavy rains and constant lightning sent the game into a one hour and 45-minute rain delay. Unfortunately the delay didn’t do much to help the Lion cause as Baker nailed a 38-yard field goal on the first play following extending the lead to 29-10 after three quarters. Zach Henshaw would add a pair of touchdowns in the fourth quarter to push the Tarleton State margin to 43-10.

TEVIN MOORE

ANGELO STATE

A&M-COMMERCE 16 SATURDAY, OCTOBER 20 SAN ANGELO STADIUM • SAN ANGELO SAN ANGELO, Texas – A&M-Commerce looked like a new team for the opening half Saturday evening, building a 13-0 halftime against Angelo State. But the Rams would outscore the Lions 17-3 in the second half, handing A&M-Commerce a heartbreaking 17-16 loss at San Angelo Stadium. A&M-Commerce made a change at quarterback during the week with Kevin Vye earning his first career start and was solid calling the shots. Vye was 12-of-27 for 143 yards and a touchdown while also scrambling for 39 yards on 10 carries and a score on the ground. Once again it was Garrett Smith who led A&M-Commerce in receiving, hauling in four catches for 33 yards with Wayne Chapman adding three catches for 40 yards out of the backfield. Tevin Godfrey had two catches for 37 yards and a touchdown for the Lions as well. The rushing game seemed to be clicking in the first half for the Lions as A&M-Commerce racked up 104 yards on 22 carries in the opening two quarters. But as was the story of the day, the rushing game dried up in a big way as the Lions carried the ball eight times, losing seven yards and finishing with 97 for the game. Vye led the way with his 39 yards while Marcus French racked up 36 yards on nine carries. Defensively, Joel Wren, Marcus Fore and Tristian Davis all led A&M-Commerce with seven tackles each with Matt Claggett, Danny Mason and Kristoddie Woods each posting six tackles. Tevin Moore had a strong performance as well, notching five tackles including 2.5 for loss and 1.5 sacks. Brandon Turner also had a sack on the afternoon. The quarterback switch seemed to energize the Lion offense in the early going as A&M-Commerce put together a 13-play, 91-yard drive that took 6:52 seconds, capped by a five-yard touchdown strike from Vye to Godfrey. It was the longest scoring drive of the season for the Lions and also marked the first time in eight games A&M-Commerce registered points in the first quarter. But the Lions would miss the extra point, a play which would come back to haunt A&M-Commerce in the second half. Early in the second, the Lions continued to click on offense, putting together an eight-play, 72-yard drive that took 4:12 off the clock as Vye punched it in from five yards out and extended the Lion advantage to 130, the first time all season A&M-Commerce had registered a double-digit lead. A defensive stand late in the half kept Angelo State off the board as the Rams missed a 37-yard field goal, giving the Lions the 13-0 lead at halftime. But it was as if the two teams switched uniforms during the intermission as Angelo State came out aggressive on offense, registering a pair of third-quarter touchdowns to take the lead at 14-13 at the end of the third. Early in the fourth, the Lions would reclaim the lead off a 31-yard field goal by Chase Thrasher, as the redshirt freshman’s first collegiate field goal put the Lions on top 16-14 with 12:45 to play. On the Rams’ ensuing drive, they were threatening to punch in another touchdown, but some key defensive plays kept Angelo State out of the endzone and forcing the Rams to settle for a 27-yard field goal as ASU reclaimed the lead at 17-16 with 6:55 to play. A&M-Commerce was unable to generate any type of offense on its next possession, punting the ball back to Angelo State and looking for a key defensive stop. But the Rams were able to run the remainder of the time off the clock, recording a pair of crucial third down conversions on the ensuing drive, and making the Lions pay for that missed extra point in the first quarter, sealing the 17-16 victory.

KEVIN VYE

ABILENE CHRISTIAN

A&M-COMMERCE 17 SATURDAY, OCTOBER 27 MEMORIAL STADIUM • COMMERCE COMMERCE, Texas -- For the second-straight week, A&M-Commerce dropped a heartbreaker in the fourth quarter, falling to Abilene Christian 24-17 on Homecoming. The loss overshadowed what was one of the Lions’ best games in recent history as A&M-Commerce outgained Abilene Christian 391-352, including a 313 to 236 yard in passing offense. Quarterback Kevin Vye had an impressive afternoon, completing 31-of-43 passes for 313 yards and a touchdown. Both Tyler Rawlings and Garrett Smith hauled in nine receptions each, with Smith tallying 93 yards and Rawlings finishing with 91.Tevin Godfrey added five catches for 52 yards as well. On the ground, A&M-Commerce finished with 78 yards on 31 carries, led by 28 yards on nine carries and a touchdown for Wayne Chapman. Kaylon Alexander posted six carries for 27 yards with Vye rushing for 22 yards on 12 carries. Defensively, the Lion pass defense came into the game ranked 12th nationally and remained solid, holding Abilene Christian’s Mitchell Gale to just 236 passing yards with 85 of them coming on the game-clinching touchdown for the Wildcats. Joel Wren and Danny Mason led the way with eight tackles each with Marcus Fore adding seven and J.T. Bates recording five. Senior cornerback Marlin Terrell had one of his best games in a Lion uniform as well, recording four tackles and notching a pair of takeaways – a 32-yard interception return and a 22-yard fumble recovery. With the ball in his hands, Vye led the Lion offense to one of its most efficient first half showings of the season. The Lions put together an 11-play, 75-yard drive that covered six and a half minutes, capped by a one-yard plunge by Chapman to put A&M-Commerce on top 7-3 late in the first. It marked the first rushing touchdown by a non-quarterback on the season for the Lions. Abilene Christian looked like it would match the Lions, using an extended drive to push deep into A&M-Commerce territory. But Terrell snagged a tipped pass, returning it back 32 yards to thwart the Wildcat threat. Vye then engineered another impressive drive, driving 73 yards in 11 plays for the Lions and finding a wide open Smith for a 28-yard touchdown strike, pushing the lead to 14-3 midway through the second. A&M-Commerce would extend their lead to 14 at 17-3, its largest of the season, off a 33-yard field goal from Chase Thrasher midway through the third. But a 68-yard kickoff return put Abilene Christian in prime position as the Wildcats notched their first touchdown of the afternoon with an eight-yard pass into the corner of the endzone, cutting the lead to 17-10 with 6:26 left in the third. After holding the Lions to a punt, the Wildcats return game struck again, returning the ensuing punt 39 yards to the A&M-Commerce 42yard line. Four plays later, Abilene Christian found the endzone again, breaking a 22-yard touchdown run to the far side and knotting the game at 17-17. With the game still tied late in the game, Gale found Hogg on a seam route along the far sideline as Hogg got behind the Lion secondary and scrambled 85-yards to give Abilene Christian its first lead of the game at 24-17 with 1:20 remaining in the game. The Lions mounted one final comeback, getting down to the Wildcat 30-yard line with nine seconds remaining. But Vye’s final heave into the endzone was intercepted by Abilene Christian, sealing the win for the Wildcats.

EASTERN NEW MEXICO

A&M-COMMERCE 3 SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 3 GREYHOUND STADIUM • PORTALES, N.M.

46

PORTALES, N.M. – A&M-Commerce’s offensive never made it out of the locker room Saturday afternoon as the Lions manage just three points and 275 yards of total offense, falling to Eastern New Mexico 7-3 at Greyhound Stadium. A&M-Commerce was able to manage just three points on the day, marking the first game this season the Lions have failed to find the endzone. Even more disturbing was the fact that A&M-Commerce was able to manage just three points against the Eastern New Mexico defense, who came into the game last in the LSC allowing 42 points per game. The Lion defense did its job in a big way, holding Eastern New Mexico to just seven points on the afternoon as the Greyhounds came into the day averaging 24 points a game. Senior linebacker Danny Mason came ready to play, finishing with a career-high 17 tackles with a sack, keeping Eastern New Mexico frustrated all afternoon. Matt Claggett added a season-high nine stops for A&M-Commerce with Kristoddie Woods and Stephen Ford finishing with seven each. But it was the A&M-Commerce offense that never found its groove, finishing with 181 passing yards from Kevin Vye, completing 17-of-31 yards. Garrett Smith was the highlight of the Lion receiving corps, hauling in seven passes for 91 yards with four other receivers notching two catches. On the ground, the Lions racked up 94 yards, one of its best outputs of the year. Jamar Mosley led the way, carrying the ball 11 times for 63 yards while Wayne Chapman added 22 yards on seven rushes. The other highlight on the afternoon for A&M-Commerce was punter Cameron Frosch, who reeled off six punts for 286 yards, averaging 47.7 yards per kick. Frosch also set a new career-long, booming a 76-yard punt in the third quarter to pin the Greyhounds deep. A&M-Commerce struck first in this one, as after holding Eastern New Mexico on a fourth-down attempt early in the first quarter, the Lions moved down inside the red zone, getting as close as the six yard line but had to settle for a 23-yard field goal from Jacob O’Neil, giving them the 3-0 lead with 8:42 remaining in the first. Early in the second, A&M-Commerce was marching deep into Greyhound territory once again, getting back to the six-yard line, but the drive was squelched when Vye’s pass was intercepted at the three-yard line, keeping the Lions off the board. The turnover proved to be costly as Eastern New Mexico would then march 97 yards over 15 plays, culminating with a three-yard touchdown pass from Wesley Wood to his brother, Lance, putting the Greyhounds on top 7-3 with 5:32 remaining in the opening half. A&M-Commerce dodged a bullet late in the half as Eastern New Mexico missed a 22-yard field goal wide right as time expired, sending the Lions to the locker room trailing 7-3. Neither offense was able to do much in the second half as Eastern New Mexico’s punting team proved to be its most valuable asset, pinning the Lions deep in their territory a handful of times, the last of which came midway through the fourth quarter. Despite the lack of offensive sparks on the afternoon, A&M-Commerce had one last opportunity to earn the victory, getting the ball back on its own 20-yard line with 2:44 remaining. A fourth-down conversion to Smith, followed by completions to Mosely, Blake Ohm and Mosley again had the Lions thinking victory as A&M-Commerce had first and 10 at the Greyhound 18 yard-line. The Lions were able to get as close as the 12-yard line, but Vye’s fourth-down pass into the endzone fell incomplete as the Greyhounds escaped with the 7-3 victory.

WEST TEXAS A&M

A&M-COMMERCE 14 SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 10 MEMORIAL STADIUM • COMMERCE COMMERCE, Texas – A&M-Commerce closed out the 2012 football season with a 45-14 loss to 17th-ranked West Texas A&M Saturday afternoon at Memorial Stadium. West Texas A&M racked up 510 yards of total offense, including 311 through the air, with A&M-Commerce generating 337. The Lions had their most productive rushing game of the season, racking up 120 yards on 31 carries, led by 72 from Jamar Mosley on 12 rushes. Through the air, Kevin Vye completed 15-of-31 passes for 217 yards, finding Garrett Smith five times for 51 yards. Tyler Rawlings hauled in the most receiving yards for A&M-Commerce, tallying 81 yards on four catches with Tevin Godfrey matching Smith’s 51 yards on four catches. Defensively, A&M-Commerce was once again led by senior linebacker Danny Mason, who closed out his stellar Lion career with 15 tackles, including eight solo, finishing the year as the Lone Star Conference’s leading tackler. Stephen Ford added six tackles along with a sack while Marlin Terrell and Joel Wren each had five stops. Punter Cameron Frosch remained one of the Lions most potent weapons on special teams, reeling off eight punts and averaging 44.6 per kick, highlighted by a 61 yarder and pinning the Buffs inside their 20 on three occasions. A&M-Commerce was looking for a strong finish to a disappointing 2012 season and hoping to send the 10 Lion seniors out in style. But West Texas A&M set the tone early in the game as after holding the Lions to a three-and-out on their first possession, the ensuing punt was blocked and returned 25 yards for a Buff touchdown, putting West Texas A&M on top 7-0 three minutes into the game. After another three-and-out for A&M-Commerce, the Buffs found pay dirt once again, covering 47 yards in nine plays and finishing with a fiveyard touchdown run to up its lead to 14-0 at the end of the first quarter. Late in the first half, A&M-Commerce finally began to find its groove, putting together a five-play 56-yard drive which culminated in an 11-yard touchdown run by Mosley as the Lions cut the gap to 14-7 with 2:11 remaining until halftime. But West Texas A&M made sure to regain momentum heading into the break, covering 73 yards in nine plays on its ensuing possession as the Buffs added a 15-yard touchdown run with 35 seconds remaining in the half, taking a 21-7 lead into halftime. The Buffs extended that advantage to 28-7 midway through the third off a 13-yard touchdown pass, capping a 10-play drive that started at their own two-yard line. A&M-Commerce answered back with with a touchdown drive of its own, moving 75 yards in five plays as Wayne Chapman punched it in from five yards out, pulling the Lions to within two touchdowns at 28-14 with 3:43 remaining in the third. But on the first play of West Texas A&M’s ensuing drive, the Buffs thwarted the upset bid as Dustin Vaughan connected with Torrence Allen for 72 yards on the first play, building a 35-14 lead after three quarters. West Texas A&M would add another touchdown and a field goal in the fourth, sealing the 45-14 victory over A&M-Commerce, notching its sixth-straight win over the Lions.

2013 TROPHY GAMES CHENNAULT CUP

A&M-Commerce at Texas A&M-Kingsville

T

Saturday, October 12 • Kingsville

he Chennault Cup, which honors the late Commerce native Lt. General Claire Chennault of “Flying Tigers” fame, began to be awarded to the winner of the A&M-Commerce vs. Livingston (later known as West Alabama) beginning in 1990. However, the two schools could not agree to continue their series following the 1991 season. Lone Star Conference rival Texas A&M University-Kingsville then stepped up to the challenge as the annual game between the Lions and Javelinas would be played for the hardware beginning in the 1992 season. After a six year hiatus following the Chennault Cup was reinstated prior to the 2009 game. The series between A&M-Commerce and A&M-Kingsville is the second-oldest in Lion program history as the two teams have met 58 times since the series begain in 1930. Only A&M-Commerce’s rivalry with Abilene Christian (67 games) has lasted longer than the series with the Javelinas. A&M-Kingsville holds a 35-22-1 lead in the all-time series, including an 11-3 record since the two teams began the annual battle for the cup. The Chennault Cup is sponsored by the Commerce chapter of Lions Club International and was originally co-sponsored by the Air Force ROTC detachment at A&M-Commerce until the Pentagon deactivated the detachment in the summer of 1991. General Chennault was noted for forming the famous “Flying Tigers” fighter squadron in the 1930’s and was the commander of the 14th Air Force during World War II.

PRESIDENT’S CUP

A&M-Commerce at Tarleton State

T

Saturday, October 26 • Stephenville

he newest trophy game for A&M-Commerce is against Tarleton State as the presidents of the two A&M system schools initiated the trophy prior to the 2010 game when the two schools began meeting on a yearly basis. Tarleton State has had the upper hand since the trophy was instituted, posting a 3-0 record against the Lions. In 2010, the Texans edged out A&M-Commerce 34-31 on the turf at Memorial Stadium to win the inaugural trophy game. Tarleton State handled the Lions 54-27 in Stephenville in 2011, then used a two-hour rain and lightning delay in 2012 to upend A&M-Commerce 43-10. This season’s game will take place back in Stephenville on October 26th as the Lions look to hoist the trophy for the first time.

ong known as a leader in intercollegiate athletics, the Lone Star Conference (LSC) is an innovative athletics conference that aims to provide a superior competitive experience for member institutions and to allow for comprehensive development of student-athletes through academic services and life skills programming. The LSC continues to build upon its proud history while intending to be recognized as the premier NCAA Division II conference in the nation. The league’s mission is to foster student participation and success among member institutions in Division II intercollegiate athletics as an integral part of each institution’s total educational program. The LSC strives for academic excellence, stresses involvement within the community, and prides itself in upholding traditions while continually seeking new opportunities to provide student-athletes with a unique and superior experience. The LSC - founded on April 25, 1931 - has developed from a five-team conference of Texas-based schools to a nine-member league that spans three states (Texas, Oklahoma and New Mexico). The league continues to assist its member institutions in the maintenance of intercollegiate athletic programs that are compatible with the highest standards of education and competitive sports. Throughout the league’s 82-year history, various institutions have competed under the LSC banner. Today, only Texas A&M University-Commerce (then East Texas State) remains from the original group that was formed in 1931 when North Texas State, Southwest Texas State, Sam Houston State and Stephen F. Austin withdrew from the old Texas Intercollegiate Athletic Association. The membership alignment has changed over the years, with current members having been added from 1954 to 1995. Texas A&M-Kingsville (formerly Texas A&I) joined in 1954, and Angelo State in 1968. Conference membership remained within the Texas borders until 1984 when Eastern New Mexico was admitted. Since then, the LSC has included members from Arkansas and Oklahoma. Cameron (1988, 1996) was added near the outset of an expansion phase, while Texas Woman’s (1989) and previous members West Texas A&M (1986, 1993) and Tarleton State (1968, 1994) joined the league soon after. Midwestern State was admitted early in 1995, while Harding reconnected with the league as an affiliate member in track and field in 2013. Past members of the LSC include Trinity, Houston, Lamar, Howard Payne, Sul Ross State, McMurry, Harding, Ouachita Baptist, Central Oklahoma, East Central (Okla.), Northeastern State (Okla.), Southeastern Oklahoma, Southwestern Oklahoma, Abilene Christian and Incarnate Word. While the LSC has maintained a long-standing tradition of competitive athletic programs for its members, many teams and individuals have gone on to distinguish themselves on the national stage. Entering 2013-14, LSC member institutions have collected 74 NCAA national championships since the league joined the Division II membership in 1982. The LSC conducts conference championships in 16 sports (seven men and nine women). Men’s championships include football, cross country, basketball, baseball, indoor track and field, outdoor track and field and golf. Women’s titles are determined in volleyball, soccer, cross country, basketball, softball, indoor track and field, outdoor track and field, tennis and golf. The conference office is located in Richardson, Texas, a northern suburb of Dallas. Stan Wagnon serves as Commissioner, with assistance from Jay Poerner (Compliance) Melanie Robotham (Media Relations) and Tommy Wright (Corporate Sales and Marketing).

1972 NAIA SEMIFINAL

January 1, 1953 • Orlando, Fla. East Texas State 33, Tennessee Tech 0 East Texas State wasted little time in pouncing on the Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles to claim their first-ever postseason victory with a 33-0 shutout in the seventh annual Tangerine Bowl. A capacity crowd of 12,340 watched the Lions score on their second and third posessions en route to their 19th straight win. Marvin Brown ran away with the most valuable player trophy and Lion quarterback Jim Gray threw for 273 yards and two touchdowns. The defense was impressive as well, holding the Eagles twice inside the Lion 12 yard line. Tennessee Tech East Texas State

1954 TANGERINE BOWL

January 1, 1954 • Orlando, Fla. East Texas State 7, Arkansas State 7 The nation’s longest winning streak stopped at 29 as Coach “Catfish” Smith’s Lions could only manage a tie against the underdog Arkansas State Indians before a record crowd of 12,976 in the eighth annual Tangerine Bowl. The Lions turned the ball over five times, including a fumble inside their own 25 that set up the Indians’ only score. An off-side penalty cost the Lions a score in the third quarter, but Billy Ray Norris’ 25-yard TD run capped a nine-play, 61-yard scoring drive on their next possession. Another turnover almost cost the Lions the game. ASU intercepted a Gray pass at the Indian 25 late in the game but fumbled the ball at the Lion 45. 7 0

January 1, 1958 • Orlando, Fla. East Texas State 10, Southern Mississippi 9 The Lions’ Neal Hinson kicked just one field goal during the entire 1957 season and it came at just the right time. His 31-yarder midway through the fourth quarter gave the underdog Lions a 10-9 Tangerine Bowl win over Southern Mississippi on New Year’s Night. The Lions were the only Texas four-year college to win a bowl game that season. The gritty Lion defense held USM scoreless four times inside the ET10, twice at the one. Coach J.V. Sikes used only 19 players to collect the victory as end Norm Roberts was named the MVP. 7 0

1958 TANGERINE BOWL

The Lions totally dominated Missouri Valley, taking an easy 26-7 win to chalk up their second Tangerine Bowl win in less than a year. Missouri Valley led the nation with 449.6 yards per game rushing but was held to just 154 by the stingy Lion defense. “Stumblin” Sam McCord was named the game’s MVP with his 69 yards rushing, and 111 yards passing. 0 14 — 26 0 0 — 7

1972 NAIA CHAMPIONSHIP BOWL December 9, 1972 • Commerce, Texas East Texas State 21, Carson-Newman 18

The East Texas State Lions claimed their first official national football championship with a come-from-behind 21-18 victory over Carson-Newman at Memorial Stadium. The Lions took advantage of nine Eagle turnovers, including two which set up ET scores. Kenneth Parks carried the football a record 49 times on his way to winning the Outstanding Back award. He scored the game-winning touchdown with 8:17 to go in the fourth. The Lion defense kept Carson-Newman down most of the game, allowing the Eagles only one possession inside of Lion territory that didn’t end up in a score. The game was played in a misty rain in 40 degree temperatures before a crowd of 4,539. 0 12 6 0 — 18 0 7 7 7 — 21

1958 TANGERINE BOWL

East Texas State Southern Mississippi

The Lions hosted their first-ever playoff game at Memorial Stadium and shocked the nation with a 54-0 blowout of top-ranked Central Oklahoma (who would later become a Lone Star Conference member). The Lions scored on their first possession and rolled up 21 first-half points on their way to the NAIA championship game. ET collected 519 yards of total offense in a game that saw eight NAIA playoff records broken or tied. Lion tailback Kenneth Parks scored three touchdowns and rushed for 246 yards on 31 carries, both playoff records. The Lion defense rose to the occasion, stopping the Bronchos both times they got inside of the ET20. Central Oklahoma East Texas State

November 25, 1972 • Commerce, Texas East Texas State 54, Central Oklahoma 0

The East Texas State Lions, entering the playoffs as the number eight seed, once again knocked off the number one team in the opening round of the NAIA playoffs, as they upset Central Arkansas 27-21 in Conway. The Lions jumped out to a 21-7 second-quarter lead, only to have the heavily-favored Bears tie the score in the fourth quarter. But led by Wade Wilson, the Lions took advantage of a short UCA punt to come back and Cary Noiel burst in from five yards out to give the Lions another postseason victory. UCA was in Lion territory only twice in the second half––once when they got the ball at the ET34 on a fumble recovery (later ET intercepts), and once when the Bears hit the game tying touchdown pass from the ET49.

POSTSEASON HISTORY 1980 NAIA SEMIFINAL

1991 NCAA DIVISION II FIRST ROUND

It was a first for East Texas State as the Lions lost for the first time in the postseason, literally giving Elon College a 14-6 decision. ET turned the ball over seven times (four interceptions and three fumbles) while holding Elon to under 140 yards of total offense and just nine yards passing. ET miscues led to both Fighting Christian scores. The return of an intercepted pass by Charles Womack was the first TD and the break away score came the first play after the Lions roughed the Elon punter in the fourth quarter. ET’s only score came when Wade Wilson hit Ron Trammell in the third quarter. Give credit to the Christian’s defense, holding the Lions twice inside the 20, and stalling ET’s final drive at the EC4 with :24 left.

The Lions, who hadn’t posted back-to-back postseason appearances since 1957-58, sent 3,000 Lions fans home happy with 22 third-quarter points en route to a 36-15 victory. The game, played in bitterly cold, windy conditions, was the first-ever NCAA championship event hosted by the university. Running back Gary Perry led the way with 118 yards rushing and two touchdowns. The Lion defense forced eight turnovers.

November 30, 1991 • Pittsburg, Kan. Pittsburg State 38, East Texas State 28

The Lions and Gorillas, who had already met during the season, squared off in the quarterfinals for the second straight year. PSU,which saw it’s 56-game win streak snapped by the Lions back in September, won 38-28 on their way to the national championship. The Lions, who literally beat themselves with nine turnovers, spotted the Gorillas 31 points in the first 15:05 of the game. A pair of touchdown passes and two TD runs pulled the Lions back to 31-28 in the third quarter. But turnovers struck again, killing three more drives. East Texas State Pittsburg State

The Lions turned the game over to the Pittsburg State Gorillas, 60-28. Eight turnovers (five interceptions, three fumbles) that led to easy PSU touchdowns and several missed scoring opportunities doomed the Lions. Receiver Gary Compton scored three of the Lion touchdowns, catching and running for scores, and recovering an ET fumble in the end zone. The Lions trailed, 39-14, at half, but pulled within 11, 39-28 in the third. Turnovers opened the flood gates as the Gorillas scored 21 unanswered points. East Texas State Pittsburg State

1991 NCAA DIVISION II QUARTERFINAL

The Lions returned to postseason play 10 years after their last playoff action, posting an impressive 20-14 triumph over Grand Valley State. It was the first NCAA Division II playoff action for the Lions, who played before 3,103 fans in the stands and a live television audience in Grand Rapids and satellite TV back to Texas. While GVSU grabbed the early lead, the Lions came back with an impressive 13-play, 83-yard drive to take a lead they would not relinquish. All-Americans Eric Turner and Terry Bagsby came up with fourth-quarter interceptions to seal the Lions’ first NCAA playoff victory. East Texas State Grand Valley State

A&M-COMMERCE HALL OF FAME T

here are 149 former athletes, coaches and administrators, along with 13 teams enshrined in the Texas A&M University-Commerce Athletic Hall of Fame. Founded in 1978, it is one of the most visible functions of the A&M-Commerce Athletic Association. The association’s Hall of Fame Selection Committee meets annually to select “those persons - living or dead - whose contributions to Texas A&M University-Commerce have brought lasting fame and honor to themselves and A&M-Commerce.” Induction classes must be approved by the A&M-Commerce President. Membership in the Athletic Hall of Fame is limited to former Lion athletes, coaches and athletic administrators. Athletes must have completed their eligibility 10 years prior to nomination, while coaches and administrators must have served A&M-Commerce for a minimum of 10 years. Additionally, the nominee must be a person of such integrity, character and sportsmanship that the A&M-Commerce family will be inspired by the recognition. Any member of the Athletic Association may submit a nomination, with forms and information about joining the Athletic Association available from the Texas A&M University-Commerce Athletic Department.

BOBBY FOX AWARD B

obby Fox played football for the Lions from 1952-55 and was an All-American defensive back and quarterback for East Texas State University on two Tangerine Bowl teams. He returned to his alma mater in 1971 as an assistant football coach. His “Blue Gang” defense of 1972, which included future NFL players Autry Beamon, and Harvey Martin, was an integral part of helping the Lions capture the NAIA national championship. Fox also served as the Lions’ head track and field coach from 1972-82 and was inducted into the Texas A&M University-Commerce Athletic Hall of Fame in 1988. Established in 1994, the Outstanding Alumni Coach Award, given each year to deserving Lion alumni, is made possible by an endowment established by Peggy Bankhead Fox in memory of her late husband.

r. Dan Jones was appointed as the 11th president of Texas A&M University-Commerce by the Texas A&M University Board of Regents in July 2008. Born in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, Dr. Jones earned a pair of bachelor’s degrees from the University of Texas at Austin in 1975. He achieved his bachelor of arts in english and his bachelor of science in magazine journalism, graduating with highest honors in both disciplines. Jones then achieved his master’s degree in english from Rice University in 1978, followed by a master’s degree in American studies from the University of Iowa in 1982. While in Iowa City, Jones also attained his Ph.D. in American studies in 1984. Jones’ career in education began at Casper College in Casper, Wyoming, where he served as an English instructor from 198285. He continued his academic career at the University of Houston from 1985-2002, serving in a number of positions before ultimately being named dean of University College. Following his service at the University of Houston, Jones served as Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs at Texas A&M International University in Laredo, Texas from 2003-08 until his appointment to become the president of A&M-Commerce. As president, he is passionate about the power of education to transform lives, families and communities. He has partnered with the Hispanic, Black, Asian and North Dallas Chambers of Commerce, and has implemented strategic initiatives geared at making A&M-Commerce both military friendly and a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI).

ATHLETIC DIRECTOR RYAN IVEY RYAN IVEY ATHLETIC DIRECTOR University of Memphis, 2004 First Season at A&M-Commerce

R

yan Ivey was introduced as the Texas A&M University-Commerce Athletic Director at a press conference on January 7, 2013, and since that day, he has hit the ground running. Just two weeks after his hiring, Ivey made his first significant impact on Lion Athletics, hiring Colby Carthel as A&M-Commerce’s 19th head football coach. But that was just the beginning. In six months at the helm, Ivey has announced the addition of an intercollegiate softball program, which will begin in the spring of 2015. He also had a head coach in place, hiring Richie Bruister as the Lions’ first head coach just a few weeks after he led Texas Woman’s to an LSC championship and an appearance in the Division II National Championship. Additionally, Ivey has revamped the Lion Athletic Club and has made it a priority to reach out to Lion fans across the state of Texas, holding a series of town hall meetings as well as launching the Lion Safari Tour. He has also brought new ideas and initiatives to help push A&M-Commerce Athletics into a new era. Ivey comes to A&M-Commerce from McNeese State University in Lake Charles, Louisiana, where he has been an integral member of the Cowboys athletic department since 2007. He has served as Associate Athletic Director since August 2010, handling the day-to-day operations of the department both in an internal and external capacity. Internally, Ivey’s key contributions have come in overseeing McNeese State’s nearly-eight million dollar athletic budget, handling the business operations on a day-to-day basis. He has also been responsible for implementing new money saving initiatives within the department as well as providing fiscal responsibility. Additionally, Ivey has overseen McNeese’s game day operations, helping to provide an entertaining and memorable experience for fans at Cowboy home athletic events while also handling the responsibility of scheduling for all 16 Cowboy and Cowgirl athletic programs. Working directly with head coaches, Ivey has

also played a key role in helping 15 of McNeese’s athletic programs increase their Academic Performance Rate to .925 or higher, improving from just four when he arrived. Externally, Ivey has handled the responsibilities of McNeese’s corporate sponsorship program. Since taking over the program, corporate sponsorship revenue has increased over 80%, bringing in over $750,000 per year. Ivey authored a revenue generating master plan for the Cowboy athletic department as well as spearheading two different marketing campaigns which resulted in record-breaking results for the Cowboy football and basketball programs. In addition to his McNeese State responsibilities, Ivey has assisted in the execution of the 2008, 2010, 2011 and 2012 State Farm Southland Conference Basketball tournaments. Ivey has also made his mark spearheading postseason events, serving as the tournament director for the 2008 and 2012 Southland Conference Women’s Soccer tournament, the 2009 Southland Conference Softball tournament and most recently, the 2011 and 2012 FCS National Championship games. Prior to his time at McNeese State, Ivey spent two seasons as the Director of Operations for the women’s basketball team at the University of Memphis, his alma mater. He also has experience serving as the Marketing and Promotions Coordinator for the University of South Dakota as well as a Stadium Operations Assistant for the Memphis Redbirds of the Pacific Coast League. A native of Mayfield, Kentucky, Ivey was a four-year letterwinner at Memphis as a punter and holder on the Tiger football team, seeing action in both the 2003 New Orleans Bowl and the 2004 GMAC Bowl. He earned his bachelor’s degree in sports management in December 2004, followed by his master’s degree in sport and leisure commerce in August 2010. He met his wife, Kelley, while attending the University of Memphis and has two sons, Jett and Ace.

ETR 88.9 FM will once again serve as the home for A&M-Commerce Lion football and basketball radio broadcasts, giving the Lions a home on the radio for over 35 years. Lion fans across the globe can also keep up on their team by following the broadcast online at KETR.org. Located in Binnion Hall on the campus of Texas A&M University-Commerce, KETR is a 100,000-watt station that encompasses a 70-mile radius and includes the cities of Rockwall, Paris, Greenville and Sulphur Springs, reaching approximately 200,000 people. KETR began in the early 1970s as the director of the East Texas State University radio-television program, Dr. David Rigney, developed an FCC application for an FM station that would be a teaching-laboratory for students. KETR sports programming began in the fall of 1975, with student-produced broadcasts of Commerce High School football, and Phil Wayne Ebensberger and former East Texas State All-American quarterback Sam McCord as the voices of ET Lions football. The first Commerce Tigers broadcast featured the Tigers playing at Honey Grove, with future East Texas State and NFL quarterback Wade Wilson leading the Commerce offense, while the first ET broadcast was the Lions’ 42-10 win over Prairie View A&M in the Cotton Bowl. KETR also broadcast Commerce Tigers basketball for many years, and, of course, ET basketball, continuing to this day. With Ebensberger behind the mic, KETR followed the Lions to NAIA basketball tournament appearances in Kansas City in 1977 and 1978. Today, KETR has once again teamed up with National Public Radio programming and features a number of popular programs such as “All Things Considered” and “Morning Edition.” It also serves as a major learning tool for A&M-Commerce students, serving the role of training student broadcasters and giving them real world experience.
