2006 Season Outlook Anticipation and enthusiasm aptly describe the emotions for the 2006 Davidson football season among Wildcat coaches, players and fans alike, and with good reason. Second-year head coach Tripp Merritt has 15 returning starters at his disposal from a squad that doubled its win total from the previous year and finished the season with a terrific upset victory on the road at Georgetown. But not even those 15 starters tell the whole story about the depth and experience of this team. The skill positions are well covered as the quarterback, top two running backs and three receivers all have extensive experience in the college game. The defensive line is stacked top to bottom with quality talent, and outstanding linebackers have become a Davidson tradition.

Second-year head coach Tripp Merritt

Coach Merritt knows, however, that talent and experience alone will not necessarily add up to a pile of victories, especially in the tough Pioneer Football League. The key ingredient he is cooking up with his troops is consistent play. “We have the potential to be one of the most improved teams in the league,” Merritt said. “Consistency is the key. If we had been more consistent last year, there is no doubt that we could have won a couple more games.” Consistency is rather hard to quantify, so the question is how does a team achieve it? “Physically our guys are as good as any team at giving everything they have on every play,” noted Merritt. “Mental toughness, the ability to focus on every play, is what breeds consistency.” The Wildcats will rely on their co-captains — seniors Niel Andrews, Jonathon Hubbard, Mike Iafrate and Kyle Kinsell — to help keep the team focused every down. And when talking about leadership, it all begins with the quarterback. Quarterback Ryan Alexander began 2005 as the backup quarterback and ended the season just nine yards shy of becoming the fourth Wildcat to throw for 2,000 yards.

The powerful 6-2, 230-pounder will spell Whetsel and get his opportunities to play.

Running Backs Once again Coach Merritt will utilize a tailback tandem in senior co-captain Jonathon Hubbard and sophomore Chad Barnes. The advantages to this system are keeping both players fresh throughout the game — especially in hot weather — and featuring different running styles to keep defenses off-balance. Hubbard, Ryan’s 5-7, 220-pound older brother, is a power back who is excellent between the tackles. His 497 yards on the ground led Davidson a year ago, and when he gets forward momentum, his strong build and low center of gravity make him extremely difficult to stop. On the other hand, the 6-0, 190-pound Barnes is more of a finesse back. When


2006 Season Outlook

All-PFL center Mike Iafrate

Hubbard missed a couple games last season, Barnes shouldered the load and produced a 122-yard performance at Valparaiso. He has the speed to get to the outside and break away from the defense. “We are going to have to stretch the defense to open up both our running and passing games,” commented Merritt. “While Jonathon is great between the tackles, we simply cannot be a downhill, power running team every play. Chad provides us with another dimension to our offense that we will utilize.” With the physical demands of the position, Davidson is well-stocked with sophomore Ryan Zirkle and freshman Seyi Ayorinde. Zirkle saw limited action last year, but at just 5-5, is excellent at alluding tackles. Ayorinde is a budding talent the coaches expect to blossom into a terrific player. At fullback, Coach Merritt has a pair of veterans in Mike Chapman and Kevin Wright. The senior duo will share time at the position and provide size and quickness to be effective blockers. Offensive Line Headed by the co-captain Iafrate, an All-PFL South center last year, the offensive line gives Coach Merritt good reason to be optimistic. “With the experience we have up front, coupled with what I consider a nice pool of talent coming in among the freshmen, the present and future are very bright for our line,” he said. Concerning the present, the 511, 260-pound Iafrate is the anchor that keeps the line solid. He never seems to miss an assignment and is equally adept at opening holes for the

running game as he is at fending off the on-coming pass rush. The left side of the line feature a pair of grizzled veterans in junior tackle George Zoeckler and senior guard Derrick Thompson. The 6-3, 260-pound Zoeckler started every game at right tackle in 2005 and proved he can handle the demands of the position. Thompson, a 6-0, 280-pounder, nearly half the season last year with an injury, but returned to the lineup in time to help out in the win over the Hoyas. His presence is crucial to holding off the rush on Alexander’s blind side. On the other side of the line, the Wildcats boast great size with a pair of 300-pound linemen. At right guard, junior Zach Jakob (6-3, 300) has earned the starting job after successfully filling in for Thompson at left guard during his absence a year ago. The tallest player on the roster, 6-7, 315pound sophomore Will Nolte, was broken in last year as a reserve in nine of the 10 games. With surprising agility, Nolte gives the ’Cats not only a player who can fill the lanes to pass protect, he can also pull and lead the charge downfield with the running game. Davidson has great depth on the line with veterans like seniors Jeremy Bloxson (6-4, 270), John Robbins (6-5, 325) and John Wilson (5-11, 260). And with reinforcements in the form of freshmen, including Iafrate’s brother Mark, the Wildcats will be well-protected. Defensive Line Typically, Davidson struggles to put together a fortified line. A 3-4 defensive scheme serves the squad well with the talent at linebacker every year. But the line is sure to be a strength in 2006. “This is the deepest defensive line we’ve ever had,” Merritt boasted, “and the quality from top to bottom is excellent.” Senior co-captain Kyle Kinsell, at 6-0 and 235 pounds, emerged from obscurity to earn numerous accolades in 2005 for his work. The defensive end was a first Tailback team Jonathon Academic AllHubbard American, just the third Wildcat to be honored, and was named to the prestigious Lott Trophy Watch List for this season, the only I-AA player among the 42 named to the list. He ranked among the PFL leaders in sacks and tackles for a loss, plus tied for the league lead among

defensive linemen with 55 tackles after amassing just 12 stops in his first two years. The player he tied was sophomore teammate Will Funderburg. As a rookie, the 6-1, 260-pounder earned All-PFL South honors, just the seventh freshman from any league school to make the first team in the five years of divisional play. One of the hardest workers on the squad is the other defensive end, Jim Walter. The 6-2, 245-pound senior has battled through injuries during his career, yet still is a terrific pass rusher. In seven games off the bench last year, Walter contributed four tackles for a loss, including 2.5 sacks. “While Kyle has gotten the national attention, our opponents would be wise not to focus on just him,” Merritt stated. “If they do, another player on the line will make them pay. I also expect this to be a really big year for Funderburg; he has the potential to be a big-time player.”

Also at Coach Merritt’s disposal on the line are seniors Brendan Watkins, Jeff Wright and Lorenzo Mack. The 6-0, 270pound Watkins is a solid player in every aspect of the game, while 6-3, 250-pound Wright provides tremendous energy off the bench as amassed three sacks, second most among the Wildcats. Mack, a 6-1, 240pound nose guard, is especially good against the run. Linebackers Four straight years the Wildcats have produced the PFL South Defensive Player of the Year, and three of those players were linebackers. While earning the award will be more difficult now with the elimination of the divisional format, Davidson still has several candidates for the honor. Niel Andrews and Bud Crawford make up an outstanding outside linebacking tandem. The senior co-captain shook off an injury from preseason last year to become one of the Wildcats’ best penetrators, ranking second on the squad in tackles for a

2006 Season Outlook loss and sacks. But the 6-1, 230-pound Andrews is equally effective dropping back to defend against the pass, picking off two tosses last season. The 6-1, 220-pound Crawford is just as disruptive as Andrews, posting 50 tackles with 5.5 going for a loss in 2005. His speed gives him the ability to contain and keep them bottled up. “Bud and Niel will be as good as any linebacker we’ve had in the recent past,” complimented Merritt. On the interior, Blake Mitchell will bring back his hard-playing, fast-talking game for his senior year. The 6-2, 240pound starter pitched in 49 tackles last season while playing in the shadow of the PFL South Defensive Player of the Year, Alex Arinsmier.

Outside linebacker Niel Andrews

“Blake was a bit overlooked with Alex beside him last year,” Merritt noted. “He will get a chance to come to the forefront this season, and I expect him to finish his career in strong fashion.” The other inside linebacker position is up for grabs among a bevy of talented players. Senior Chris Castillo (5-9, 200), junior Chris Hampton (6-1, 200) and sophomore Peter Bakke (6-2, 205) all have the ability to play the post well. “Castillo showed in the Georgetown game last year that he can be an impact player,” said Merritt. “But Hampton had a terrific spring fighting for the job, and Bakke will certainly be in the mix.” Defensive Backs The secondary proved to be a great weapon for the Wildcats last season with 19 interceptions, fifth most among I-AA schools. Of those 19 picks, 11 return as the starters at the four defensive back spots. Manning one of the corners will be Patrick FitzGerald. The 5-9, 185-pound junior led Davidson with five interceptions and ranked ninth nationally in the category. One of the league’s top cover men, FitzGerald also adds the mentality of a linebacker to his game as he relishes the

opportunity to send an opponent sprawling to the turf with a big hit. At the opposite corner stands junior Jeffrey Scott. An integral member of the secondary last year, the 5-9, 175pounder has moved up into a starting role. Stripping the football is his calling card as he led the PFL in forced fumbles a year ago. “Patrick and Jeffrey are great competitors,” Merritt stated. “I will always sacrifice height for that competitive streak in a player. They are both also great athletes who can jump, which helps negate any perceived disadvantage.” Sophomores Matt Mikrut ((5-10, 175), Brandon Giles (6-0, 170) and K.J. Blackwell (6-0, 175) all have the ability to capably fill in should the need arise. The free safety position will once again be patrolled by junior Zach Long. Following a lost freshman season due to injury, the 5-10, 190-pounder returned with a vengeance last year, ranking second on the squad with 79 tackles and four interceptions. Moving into the strong safety slot vacated by graduated Ricky Childers, an All-PFL South performer, will be Matt Easton. At 6-2 and 215 pounds, the sophomore will be the biggest Wildcat to play the position in recent memory. Easton doles out punishing tackles and has the speed to cover the vast expanses of turf. Also available for service at safety are senior Alex Lemons (5-9, 180) and junior Corey Hutchins (6-0, 195). Special Teams One aspect of the game Coach Merritt stresses is special teams play. Davidson had its strong points in 2005, but also areas that needed improvement. Senior Brad Smith returns for his final season as the Wildcats’ placekicker after leading the PFL with 10 field goals and converting 16-of-18 PAT attempts. Each year his leg has gotten stronger, as evidenced by his career-long 43-yard field goal last year. The punting game can only get better this season after ranking last in the league in net yards. The rugby-style punt worked at times throughout the season, but was inconsistent. While Coach Merritt will still use it at times, the traditional punt is likely to be in vogue this year. Enter Cyrus Maddox, a senior who had been playing club rugby at Davidson. He has a big leg and could win the punting job with his distance and hang time. But sophomore Kirk Konert has improved and could be called upon to provide the quirky kicks. Either Maddox or junior Cody Elder will send the ball downfield on kickoffs. Elder has improved his leg strength to help him send the ball deeper into enemy territory. The Wildcat kick return teams should provide plenty of excitement with Ryan

Hubbard leading the charge on both kickoffs and punts. Beaux Jones is slated to be the other deep man on kickoffs. Schedule With the divisional format abandoned following the departure of Austin Peay from the PFL, every game against league opponents will count in the standings. For the first time since Davidson joined the league in 2001, the Wildcats will play every fellow PFL squad with the regularseason champion playing the NEC champion in the Gridiron Classic. The ’Cats will be tested right off the bat on Sept. 2 as they travel to IAA scholarship foe VMI for the second straight season. The home schedule opens up the following week with a night game against a scholarship team, Wingate. Another scholarship opponent, LenoirRhyne, will host Davidson on Sept. 16 for another night contest. After a bye week, the remainder of the season will feature PFL opponents, beginning with the homecoming game against the defending conference champion, San Diego. The Wildcats will also play host to Jacksonville, Dayton and Butler while traveling to Morehead State, Valparaiso and Drake. “With the level of competition we are playing, every coach and player has to show up not just on Saturday to play, but every day of the week in preparation,” demanded Merritt. “There really is no margin for error in league play. “This is a good football team,” he continued. “What will determine whether or not we are a great team will be our focus every time we step on the field, whether a practice or a game, and the commitment we make to preparing to succeed.”

Now in his second season as Davidson’s head coach, Guy “Tripp” Merritt is leading the program in the right direction. Last year he oversaw a Wildcat squad that doubled its win total from the year before, ending the season on a high note with a 10-3 upset victory at Georgetown. In 2006, Merritt will meld his returning players with his first crop of recruits, the latter of which greatly bolster the front lines on both sides of the ball. “Tripp Merritt has the qualities of a leader we believe are important to success at Davidson — an understanding of and commitment to the Davidson culture, a high level of energy and enthusiasm, and a history of success,” said Murphy. The goal for Merritt is clear — return Davidson to its winning ways prevalent during his stint as an assistant with the Wildcats under Tim Landis from 1993-99. He has the vision and the drive to make that goal a reality. “We have the talent and the desire to compete for the PFL title,” said Merritt. “What we need to focus on is consistent play over four quarters. We have to be both physically and mentally tough, which

will lead to the consistent play that we need to be successful.” During his first tour of duty, Merritt served in a variety of roles, from secondary coach to linebackers coach and defensive coordinator. His defensive unit in 1998 ranked first nationally among I-AA schools in pass efficiency defense, second in scoring defense and fourth in total defense, and 13th in rushing defense the following season. Merritt also served as the recruiting coordinator in his final years at Davidson, and oversaw the influx of talent that helped the Wildcats achieve their greatest five-year stretch in over 100 years of football. The 1998 squad set a school record with eight victories, which was equaled in

2006 wildcat Football

1999, Merritt’s last year at Davidson. In 2000, the ’Cats recorded the first and only perfect campaign with a 10-0 mark, before going 5-4 in 2001 and 7-3 in 2002. When Landis took the head-coaching job at St. Mary’s (Calif.) in 2000, Merritt joined him as the recruiting coordinator, and as the linebackers coach for two seasons, then assistant head coach and offensive line coach. After three years out West, the duo moved on to Bucknell University where Merritt served as the associate head coach, defensive coordinator and recruiting coordinator for the past two years. In his final season with the Bison (2004), Bucknell went 7-4 and ranked among the top 25 in Division I-AA in scoring defense. The 1990 graduate of UNC Charlotte began his coaching career as a volunteer assistant coach at Garinger High School in 1990, then moved on to be a graduate assistant at Western Carolina for two years before being hired at Davidson. At Burns High, Merritt was a three-year letterman in both football and baseball. Merritt, 38, is engaged to Sara Stahley of Lewisburg, Pa., and resides in Davidson.

Mike Clark

Assistant Head Coach Defensive Line 14th year Davidson ’93 Hayford returns for his 14th season as a Wildcat coach and 17th on campus. This is also his second campaign as the assistant head coach, bestowed upon him when his former colleague Tripp Merritt was hired as the head coach in 2005. Along with the title, he will be responsible for the defensive line.. As the defensive line coach, Hayford coached the Wildcats to the league lead in sacks in 2005 with 24 total. He also oversaw the sack leader in the PFL in both 2002 and 2003 in Ryan Tennis ’03 and Darryl Childers ’04, respectively. Davidson led the league in sacks as a team in 2002 as well, averaging 3.3 per game, while no other squad had more than 2.5. Hayford was instrumental in the emergence of All-PFL South performers Kyle Kinsell and Will Funderburg last year. Kinsell, also an Academic All-American, had all of 12 tackles in his first two seasons, while Funderburg was just a rookie. “Brett knows how to get the most out of the d-line,” stated Merritt. “He has an excellent understanding of blocking schemes and how to attack them. Having spent his playing days on the defensive side of the ball, he is well-suited to work with the linemen.” Hayford graduated in 1993 from Davidson, where he played two seasons as a defensive lineman and as an outfielder for the baseball team. At Shorecrest Prep in St. Petersburg, Fla., his father, Phil, coached his high school football team. He is married to the former Beth Snowden, who is the head athletic trainer at Davidson. They live in Huntersville with their son, Thad (7).

Coach Clark

Coach Clendaniel

Now in his seventh year, Clark has been a constant through three head coaches since the turn of the century. Each of those head coaches have discovered his value as an offensive coordinator and offensive line coach. Clark’s influence was particularly noticeable last year as the offensive line was fourth in the league in fewest sacks allowed, which helped Ryan Alexander nearly become the fourth Wildcat to throw for 2,000 yards in a season. In addition, Clark mentored All-PFL South center Mike Iafrate. Through his first six seasons running the offense, the Wildcats have averaged nearly 24 points a game. In 2002, Davidson scored a whopping 32 points per contest to rank 14th among I-AA schools as the ’Cats went 7-3. It marked just the second time in Davidson’s long history of football that the team topped 30 points per game. “Mike has a good feel for how to keep defenses off-balance and is committed to a balanced attack,” noted Merritt. “He is also an excellent teacher of technique and fundamentals on the offensive line.” Clark graduated from Lycoming College in Williamsport, Pa., in 1993 with a degree in business administration. He earned a master’s degree at Rowan College while working there for two years as an assistant coach. After spending two seasons at Princeton with former Wildcat head coach Joe Susan, he went back to his alma mater as the offensive line coach, helping the Warriors reach the NCAA playoffs. Mike and his wife, Danielle, live in Mooresville with their daughters, Allison (5) and Emily (four months), and son, Brendan (2).

w w 28

As the Wildcats’ defensive coordinator for the past six years, Clendaniel has led Davidson to numerous national statistical rankings, including the fifth most interceptions in I-AA last year. In his first season (2000), Clendaniel oversaw a defense that ranked third in Division I-AA in scoring defense, fifth in pass efficiency defense and eighth in rush defense. Three times in their five years as a member of the Pioneer Football League, the Wildcats have ranked among the top three in the league in total defense. In addition to all those pickoffs in 2005, Davidson was among the top 15 nationally in turnovers gained and turnover margin. ”Meade really knows his stuff when it comes to a defensive game plan,” Merritt said. “He preaches an opportunistic approach and does a tremendous job of putting the players in position to succeed. His work with the secondary is a boost to this team as he has shown with all those interceptions last year.” Clendaniel graduated from West Chester University in 1997 with a degree in biology and spent his senior year as a student assistant coach for the football squad. He also was a fullback for West Chester for three seasons. In August of 1998, he joined the staff at Princeton, working with current assistant Mike Clark and former head coach Joe Susan. Among his duties as an assistant at both schools were recruiting, developing the defensive game plan, scouting reports and all phases of special teams. Clendaniel is married to the former Meredith Tarpley and the couple lives in Davidson.

Chris Monfiletto Running Backs 1st year Davidson ’04 Monfiletto is hardly a newcomer to Davidson football, having finished his playing career with the Wildcats just three years ago. He joined the staff this past spring and is anxious to begin his college coaching career on the field. After graduating from Davidson in 2004 with a degree in history, he coached at his high school, The Hun School, in Princeton, N.J., for the past two seasons. As a receiver and secondary coach, he helped his squad to an 8-1 record, the Mid-Atlantic Prep League Championship and the New Jersey Prep A State Championship. Four of his players are playing Division I college football, including a strong safety at Florida State and a wide receiver at Purdue. “Chris brings that youthful exuberance that keeps everyone energized, both coaches and players,” Merritt said. “And with his familiarity with the program and the school, he won’t have any problems relating with our athletes.” A running back and wide receiver during his years with the Wildcats, Monfiletto was a co-captain as a senior. He was named to the PFL Honor Roll twice and caught 11 passes in his career for 136 yards. In addition, he was an integral member of the special teams. Monfiletto, a native of New Hope, Pa., is currently single and lives in Davidson.

Amish Patel Quarterbacks 1st year Michigan State ’03 The newest member of the staff, Patel brings extensive first-hand experience from his playing days at Ranger Community College and Michigan State. In 2000 while at Ranger, he received AllAmerican honors from PrepStar magazine. This is Patel’s first coaching job, but he received an intensive introduction to the work as an intern at the Philadelphia Eagles’ training camp in 2005. His knowledge of and success at the position will allow him to relate to the Wildcat quarterbacks and help him get the most from their ability. “Amish is like a sponge, soaking up so much information in the little time he has been on staff,” claimed Merritt. “He has great experience with a terrific football program at Michigan State, which gives him instant credibility with our players. I look forward to working with him closely this year.” Patel earned an associate degree from Ranger before graduating from Michigan State in 2003 with a degree in psychology. The native of Austin, Texas, is currently single and lives in Davidson.

A 1978 graduate of UNC Charlotte, Curt Williams is in his 11th year spanning two different tours of duty, first serving with the ’Cats in 1993-94. This year he is working with Davidson’s talented inside linebackers in hopes of producing another PFL Defensive Player of the Year. “This is my second stint with Curt,” Merritt noted. “His presence will help with the transition and gives me a comfort level in that I know what I’ve got with him. He has a special bond with the players and is an excellent communicator.” In his first eight years with Davidson, Williams coached on the defensive side of the ball. He coached the linebackers in 1998 on one of the Wildcats’ best defensive teams ever. That squad finished second in I-AA in scoring defense at 10.4 points per game, and fourth in total defense, allowing just 231.9 yards per game. In 1999, the defense led I-AA in interceptions with 28 and was 13th in rushing defense, allowing 101 yards per game. Williams lives in Indian Trail with his wife, Deborah.

Jay Poag Wide Receivers 4th Year Davidson ’87 Poag is beginning his third stint on the Wildcat coaching staff. From 2002-03, Poag coached the running backs and wide receivers, tutoring MidMajor All-American Barrett Johnson who amassed 980 yards receiving as a senior. A 1987 graduate of the college, Poag served as a student assistant coach for the 1986 season after completing his football eligibility the previous fall. As a senior, the running back led Davidson with 37 receptions for 406 yards. Poag has more than 10 years of coaching experience, including six years as the offensive coordinator for Presbyterian. He also spent two years at Lenoir-Rhyne, and another two at N.C. State while earning his master’s degree in sports administration. “Having Jay back on the staff is a boost to the program, ” Coach Merritt stated. “He knows the offense well and has a great rapport with the players.” Poag lives in Huntersville with his wife, Amy, a guidance counselor at Lake Norman High School. They have two children, daughter Jamie (17) and son Brandon (8).

Means returns for a second season with Davidson coaching the outside linebackers. His work last year helped Niel Andrews and Bud Crawford emerge as defensive forces. Also an assistant coach since 2000 at North Mecklenburg High School just down the road, Means recently served as the defensive coordinator. “Jimmy is a good defensive mind,” Merritt said. “His experience as a coordinator at the 4A high school level will bring a lot to the table quickly in his tenure.” The 1991 graduate of Union College also spent two years just up the road from Davidson as an assistant at Mooresville High School (1999-2000). From 1996-98, Means was the head coach at Trimble County High School in Bedford, Ky. Means lives in Charlotte with his daughter, Makayla (7).

Frank Swart Assistant Secondary 4th year Wagner ’91 Now in his fourth season on staff, Swart has already left his mark on Davidson football. Last year Alex Arinsmier led the league in tackles per game and was named the PFL South Defensive Player of the Year. “When you talk high energy, Frank embodies just that,” stated Merritt. “The athletes feed off that energy and take that with them on the field.” Swart is no stranger to successful football programs. A member of the 1987 Division III national champion football team at Wagner College, he was a two-time captain and four-year letterwinner for the Seahawks. In his junior season, he was honorable mention All-ECAC. After graduating from Wagner in 1991 as a two-time national qualifier in wrestling (177 and 190), Swart became the assistant football and wrestling coach at Upsala College while attending graduate school. Swart also earned a master’s in human resources and business administration from South Carolina. He now works for Powerhouse Color, a digital printing company. Swart currently resides in Huntersville with his wife of three years, Linda, and his three daughters, Ava (5), Julianna (3) and Caroline (1).

Athletic Trainer 4th Year Appalachian State ’01 Now in his fourth season as the Wildcats’ football athletic trainer, Taylor has become an integral member of the staff, helping to keep injuries to a minimum and quickly improving the fortunes of those hurt. “I don’t even want to think of where we would have been without Danny last year,” stated Merritt. “He has done an excellent job of not only healing our players, but working closely with them on preventing injuries.” A 2001 graduate of Appalachian State with a bachelor’s degree in athletic training, Taylor spent two and a half years as a student athletic trainer for ASU. He then went to N.C. State and earned his master’s in adult education while serving two years as the graduate assistant athletic trainer for football. In addition to his football duties at Davidson, he also has served as the athletic trainer for the wrestling, lacrosse and tennis teams. Taylor grew up in nearby Matthews, N.C., and currently lives in Cornelius with his wife of three years, Melissa.

Jennifer DEDECKER Administrative Asst. 1st Year Queens ’07 DeDecker joined the office staff this summer and has quickly acclimated herself to the duties and responsibilities of her position. With so many logistics to tend to behind the scenes, she is invaluable to the coaches, allowing them to focus more on evaluating opponents and recruits rather than finalizing travel details. “I could not be more pleased with Jen,” stated Merritt. “She takes care of all the details we don’t have time for, then looks for more ways to help out. The transition period was almost non-existent as she jumped right into the job.” A graduate of Girls Preparatory School in Chattanooga, DeDecker is now a senior at Queens University in Charlotte and is studying for her bachelor’s degree in American studies. She has an affinity for marketing and previously worked as the marketing coordinator for CB Richard Ellis. DeDecker is currently single and lives in Huntersville.

Smith Field at Richardson Stadium

w w 30

On Sept. 10, 2005, Davidson will dedicate the most recent renovations and additions to Richardson Stadium, the home of Wildcat football. The facility has undergone another transformation, thanks to generous donations from numerous alumni and supporters. With the addition of the Wilson Terrace, Ernie Doe Weight Room, Hubbard Family Locker Room and Don Bryant Press Box, Richardson Stadium offers a terrific venue to watch college football in its finest and purest form. The seating capacity has now increased to 4,500, the weight room located beneath the newly constructed stands has 5,000 square feet of space and the press box gives a terrific vantage point for the media to watch and report on the game. Richardson Athletic Field debuted in the fall of 1923, and it contained two football fields, a baseball diamond and a quartermile cinder track. Vines were planted on a wire fence that surrounded the field, and bushes were set both inside and outside the fence. Henry Smith Richardson ’06 and Lunsford Richardson, Jr. ’14 donated the facility, which was named in honor of their father, Lunsford Richardson, Sr., Davidson class of 1875. Ever since that first game on Oct. 13, 1923, the site certainly has been put to good use. Davidson played just one football game at Richardson Athletic Field that year, as most home games were played in Charlotte. The Wildcats played a terrific game that day, shutting out The Citadel in a 7-0 triumph. Sophomore Wick Black provided the lone touchdown in the game with a two-yard dive, and senior Gig Shepherd added the extra point. In 1924, the stadium portion of the facility was built of brick and concrete construction, which had room for 8,000 fans. Temporary bleachers were added in the end zones through the years to inflate the

capacity from 10,000 to 11,000. As the years went by, the second football field and baseball diamond were eliminated, leaving just the one field and the cinder track. In 1965, renovations to the stadium included a dressing room for the visiting team, fiber glass seats and a glass-enclosed press box where it remains to this day. A major overhaul to the facility occurred during the summer of 1991. The field was renovated and expanded so soccer could be played in the stadium, the permanent seating capacity was reduced to 6,000 and lights were installed. These renovations allowed Davidson to host the NCAA Division I Men’s Soccer Championships (now known as the College Cup) from 1992-94. The Wildcat soccer team made the most of the opportunity by qualifying for the championships, falling in the semifinals in overtime to San Diego, which ironically is a member of the Pioneer Football League today. With the addition of temporary bleachers, Davidson averaged 8,000 fans per game the first year, 10,000 the next and 12,000 the final year. In the summer of 1999, the Irwin Belk Track, featuring an eight-lane, 400 meter,

polyurethane track, replaced the old cinder track, which had been reduced to four lanes with the expansion for soccer. A year and a half later, the Wildcat track team hosted the Davidson Relays, the first track meet in Richardson Stadium in years.

The Ernie Doe Weight room is a 5,000-square foot, state-of-the-art facility located in the stadium.

The stadium itself underwent a renovation as well, as the north stands were torn down to accommodate the new track, reducing the capacity to 4,000. Underneath the south stands, new football and soccer locker rooms were constructed as well. The field itself was overhauled as well and was renamed the Stephen B. Smith Field in honor of the trustee and former Wildcat football standout. For a time, the women’s lacrosse team also called Richardson Stadium home until the Carol G. Belk Turf Field opened in the fall of 2002. And with the opening of Alumni Stadium for the men’s and women’s soccer teams in the fall of 2004, football once again is the only varsity sport played on the field.

From the Archives “The value of athletic training was just beginning to be appreciated when I was a student at Davidson College in 1914 … I look forward to a time when future generations may profit in increasing measure from the benefits of trained minds and strong bodies.” Davidson hosted the NCAA Division I Men’s Soccer Championship in 1992-94 with then-record crowds each of the three years.

2005 Season Review Renovated Stadium Dedicated Richardson Stadium has been around in one form or another since 1924, and 2005 certainly brought another form to the landmark. On Sept. 10, Davidson dedicated the newest additions to the stadium — the Wilson Terrace, Ernie Doe Weight Room, Hubbard Family Locker Room and Don Bryant Press Box. The football team did not disappoint as the Wildcats came away with a 32-7 victory over Greensboro College. Merritt Earns First Win as Head Coach Davidson opened the 2005 season under the direction of its 26th head coach, Tripp Merritt, who had previously served as an assistant for the Wildcats from 1993-99. His first game at the helm did not go according to script in a 33-0 loss at VMI. But he and the ’Cats rebounded the following week with the victory over Greensboro. Robbery Record Inside the 32-7 victory over Greensboro, Davidson set a school record by intercepting six Pride passes. Three of those picks were by Patrick FitzGerald, who earned PFL Defensive Player of the Week honors and was one of just four I-AA players to accomplish the feat. In addition, Preston Moore nabbed an errant pass and returned it 28 yards for a touchdown, the lone interception brought back for six points all season. Smith Hammers Home Three Field Goals Brad Smith became the fifth Wildcat to boot three field goals in a game, accounting for all nine points in a 16-9 loss against Lenoir-Rhyne. Oddly enough, the last two instances have both been in losses and accounted for all of Davidson’s points — Chris Costello amassed the hat trick in a 31-9 loss to VMI on Sept. 6, 2003. Talk About Offensive The Wildcat offense amassed 603 total yards in the win at Valparaiso, the second most for a Davidson squad in at least 21

Ryan Hubbard hauled in three touchdowns and amassed 172 yards receiving against Austin Peay.

years. Only the 2003 ’Cats racked up more yardage (614 yards) in a 45-21 victory at Emory & Henry in that span. The school record is 777 yards against Erskine in 1946. Alexander the Great Against Valparaiso, sophomore Ryan Alexander had a career day by completing 15-of-20 passes for 343 yards and four touchdowns for a rating of 285.06, the sixth best single-game performance in Division I-AA in 2005. All that despite just playing into the middle of the third quarter! At the half he already had 307 yards through the air. He earned the PFL Offensive Player of the Week award for his performance.

high of 16 tackles to help the Wildcats upset the Hoyas, 10-3. Thrasher, meanwhile, averaged 43.5 yards on seven punts, dropping three inside the 10 and crushing a 67-yarder, the second-longest punt in the PFL. PFL Sack Masters Davidson tied Drake for the PFL lead with 24 sacks, yet not one Wildcat ranked among the top five in the league. Kyle Kinsell led the charge with four sacks, and 11 other players had a hand on at least one sack. The fact that just about anyone could get to the quarterback made it difficult to deal with the Davidson defense.

Joining the Club With his first catch against Drake on Oct. 1, Brett Dioguardi surpassed 1,000 receiving yards for his career, becoming the 19th Wildcat to do so. Entering his final season, Dioguardi ranks eighth all-time at the school with 1,356 yards and needs just five more catches to top 100 for his career. Turnover Turnaround In 2004, Davidson ranked 116th out of 117 I-AA teams in turnover margin at minus-1.89. Thanks in part to ranking fifth in the country in interceptions and 14th in takeaways, the Wildcats completely turned the battle of turnovers around last season. The team’s margin of 0.90 led the PFL and ranked 13th nationally. Touchdown Bomb One Yard Short of Record Ryan Alexander delivered an 88-yard scoring strike to Brett Dioguardi against Dayton, the longest pass in the PFL in 2005. But it was one yard shy of equaling the Davidson record set in 1962 when Earl Cole tossed an 89-yard pass to Steve Heckard. Ending on High Note Against the Hoyas Entering the season finale as decided underdogs at Georgetown, the Wildcats parlayed a stifling defense and a touchdown late in the second quarter into a terrific 10-3 victory. It was Davidson’s first win over the Hoyas finishing off its perfect season in 2000 with a 41-17 triumph. Players of the Week Along with FitzGerald and Alexander, the ’Cats had four other players named a PFL Player of the Week. In a 44-6 throttling of Austin Peay on Oct. 8, Ryan Hubbard set a career high with 172 yards receiving and tied the school record with three touchdown catches to earn the offensive award, while Brad Smith garnered special teams honors for kicking a pair of field goals and three PATs. One of the threepointers was a career-long 43-yarder. Then against Georgetown in the season finale, Davidson double-dipped again as Alex Arinsmier took home the defensive award and Jonathon Thrasher the special teams honor. Arinsmier equaled his season

Alex Arinsmier was the fourth consecutive Wildcat to earn PFL South Defensive Player of the Year honors.

PFL Accolades For the fourth consecutive year, a Wildcat was named the PFL South Defensive Player of the Year. Senior Alex Arinsmier was bestowed the award as he topped the circuit with 10.8 tackles per game and amassed at least 10 tackles in seven of the 10 games, including the final six contests. Three times he brought down 16 opponents and was the focal point of a defense that helped create a league-best 28 turnovers. Wildcats earning All-PFL South honors along with Arinsmier were strong safety Ricky Childers, center Mike Iafrate, wide receiver Brett Dioguardi, and defensive linemen Will Funderburg and Kyle Kinsell. Kinsell Academic All-American Kyle Kinsell, on the strength of his 3.76 GPA and stellar play for Davidson, became just the third Wildcat to be selected as an Academic All-American, being named to the first team. He led all PFL defensive linemen with 55 tackles and was among the league leaders in sacks and tackles for a loss. In addition, senior Yeatts Anderson was named to the Academic All-District III squad. Earning Academic All-PFL honors were Anderson and Kinsell on the first team, and Bud Crawford, John Green and Blake Mitchell on the second team.

September 17, 2005 — Davidson, N.C.

A strong running game, led by Jonathon Hubbard’s 108 yards on 19 carries, and a school record six interceptions, three by Patrick FitzGerald, sent the ’Cats to their first win of the season. Preston Moore returned one of the picks for a touchdown as well.

The Wildcats came up five yards short as Davidson lost to the Bears for the fifth straight time. Ryan Alexander’s seventh completion to Ryan Hubbard got the ’Cats to the Bear five with time for one more play. But a pass to Jordan Sundheim was batted away when time expired.

Davidson did not give up, traversing 87 yards in less than two minutes to get within eight again with 1:43 to play. The onside kick went out of bounds, however, ending the comeback attempt.

Morehead State 31 Davidson 13 October 22, 2005 — Morehead, Ky. For the second time in the last three trips to Morehead, the ’Cats held a lead at the half, only to have the host Eagles score 28 points in the second half to pull away. The defense held MSU to just a field goal and recovered two fumbles over the first 30 minutes. Eagle QB Brian Yost got hot after the break, however, tossing four scoring passes.
