WelcOme­TO­SmITh­FIeld­AT­RIchARdSON­STAdIum – Originally built in 1924 and recently expanded to accommodate 4,500 fans, Richardson Stadium is home to Davidson football. – On Sept. 10, 2005, Davidson dedicated the most recent renovations and additions to Richardson Stadium. 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 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. – 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. – In 1965, renovations to the stadium included a dressing room for the visiting team, fiber glass seats and a glassenclosed 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. – The NCAA Men’s Soccer Championship was hosted by Davidson at Richardson Stadium for three consecutive years (199294), launching the College Cup to national attention. In 1994, the tourney drew a then-record crowd of 23,818 people in two days. – 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 field itself was overhauled as well in 1999 and was renamed the Stephen B. Smith Field in honor of the trustee and former Wildcat football standout.

SeASON­OuTlOOK It had been three long sub-par seasons when the Davidson College football team snapped the stretch and posted a 6-4 record last year, its first campaign above the .500 mark since going 7-3 in 2002. For the seniors on the team, it was a nice sendoff, but for the returners to the 2007 squad, it was a taste of possibility. That sniff of winning football was what the Wildcats needed to work extra hard in the spring and summer and return this fall poised to prove that last year was not just a fluke. “Last season was a great stepping stone, but the challenges continue to be there,” said head coach Tripp Merritt. “You need a little luck. You need to have the ball bounce your way and stay injury free, and we were able to do that last year.” Davidson had four games decided by six points or less and was 2-2 in those contests. Two were decided by a single point, and one was an overtime loss. The ‘Cats learned what it takes to win close games, and Merritt believes he has started to build a program where the upperclassmen get a majority of the playing time while the young guys have a chance to develop. “The sign of a healthy program is to not have to rely heavily on your freshman class,” he said. “We have that with the exception of a few areas so that gives those young athletes a chance to develop in the weight room and on the field.” The key to the season will likely come down to the big boys on the offensive and defensive line. While Merritt thinks his starters can compete with anybody, he likes to rotate a lot of players to keep guys fresh. In order to do that, some younger, and to this point, unproven players will have to step up. “We have depth at almost every position, but the play of the offensive and defensive line will be important to our success,” said Merritt. “Developing our younger guys up front will be a key to our season.” The Wildcats have proven depth at a number of positions, including wide receiver and in the defensive secondary. Throw in a

quarterback who ranked fifth in Division I FCS in passing a season ago, and the pieces are there for Davidson to take another step forward in 2007. “We have enough experience in other places to have a chance to build on last season,” said Merritt. “One thing you can be sure of – we’ll play hard, we’ll play smart and we’ll play together.” Offensive­line The Wildcat offense was explosive in 2006, averaging 29.5 points a game, and if they hope to experience that success this season, it will start on the offensive line. Three of the five starters return, but the newcomers are a pair of sophomores. Their development is paramount to Davidson’s chances. “It’s an area of concern because we lived and died with three great seniors last season, and they left really two key spots that need to be filled in center and guard positions,” said Merritt. Anchoring the left side will be senior tackle George Zoeckler (6-3, 260 lbs.) and senior guard Zach Jakob (6-3, 305 lbs.). Zoeckler, a two-year starter, was named AllPFL Honorable Mention last season while Jakob played in all 10 games and made six starts. The other returning starter is junior right tackle Will Nolte (6-7, 315 lbs.), who started nine games and played in all 10 contests. A pair of sophomores will compete for playing time at center, and Shane Purvis (61, 270 lbs.), who saw action in three games, enters camp first on the depth chart. Classmate Reed Ryan (6-0, 250 lbs.) will challenge for the starting position. Mark Iafrate (6-1, 275 lbs.), another sophomore who played in three games as a rookie, is penciled in as the starter at right guard. Senior Nick DiLuzio (6-1, 260 lbs.) will challenge for playing time there. “We are looking for sophomores in Purvis and Iafrate to fill those roles,” said Merritt. “They set the tone in the spring and are set to be starters, but they have big shoes to fill. How well they develop early is really important to our success.”

Senior Zach Jakob

Quarterback The top priority for the offensive line will be protecting senior Ryan Alexander, a secondteam All-Pioneer Football League selection a season ago. The Wildcats love to get the ball in the hands of their talented receiving corps, and Alexander averaged 37.7 pass attempts in 2006. If they can give him time, he has proven the ability to pick apart defenses. Alexander ranked sixth in the FCS in total offense, fifth in passing and 35th in passing efficiency. The senior set school records for total offense and passing yardage. As a second-year starter, his role will increase, and the coaching staff will give him more ability to change things up at the line of scrimmage. “Ryan is the guy who makes us go,” said Merritt. “He has matured physically and mentally as a player, and we’re giving him more freedom to make changes at the line. He’s one of the sharper guys I have been around and very astute at seeing the big picture both pre and post snap.” Adding depth will be fellow senior Matt McGreevy. He has played in 14 career games and owns a .615 completion percentage. “Matt has proven to be a more than adequate back-up,” said Merritt. “He is a tremendous competitor and has accepted his role on this team.” Wide­Receiver Gone is the favorite target of Davidson quarterbacks in 2006 and the school’s alltime leading receiver in terms of yardage, Brett Dioguardi, but a quartet of playmakers are back and ready to equal last year’s performance. Leading the group are seniors Ryan Hubbard and Beaux Jones. Hubbard caught 44 passes for 542 yards and five touchdowns in 2006, and currently ranks 10th in career receiving yards at Davidson. Jones, a converted quarterback, had 46 receptions for 570 yards and five touchdowns in his first campaign at wide receiver.

Tight­ends The ‘Cats are deep at tight end with D.J. Singleterry, Quincy Holmer and Aaron Curley, who all earned letters last season,

defensive­line Just like on the other side of the ball, depth on the defensive line will be a major key to success on defense. Two seniors have graduated, making for a youth movement up front. Two-year starter Will Funderburg is the veteran of the crew as a junior. He has 76 career tackles, including 9.5 for loss, in 20 contests. “It all starts in the middle with Will, said Merritt. “He is the anchor of the

defense and has established himself as one of the better nose guards in the league with two great seasons.” A pair of sophomores in Daniel Hauffe and Aaron Saltzman are slated to start at the defensive tackle positions. Hauffe played in five games in his rookie campaign and tallied three tackles, while Saltzman played in three contests. Merritt is thrilled with their development through spring practice but knows game day can be a different animal. “They have never been in the fire, so to speak, and their development early is key,” he said. “They both had really, really good springs on the field and in the weight room.”

Running­Backs This is another position where the ‘Cats graduated one of the best backs in school history but bring back a solid core that probably contains more depth from top to bottom. Whereas Davidson’s interior running game was a strength in 2006, this year’s team may have more speed to turn the corner and exploit the outside. Junior Chad Barnes will be the likely starter with sophomore Seyi Ayorinde and junior Ryan Zirkle ready to get their share of carries. Barnes rushed 42 times for 209 yards last year and has 140 carries for 672 yards and four touchdowns during his career. Ayorinde played in two games and ran once for two yards as a freshman, while Zirkle has 26 carries for 60 yards in nine career contests. “The tailback position is wide open, but I like that we’re bringing back more speed as a group, which gives us the ability to open the outside run game a little more,” said Merritt. Sophomore Kirk Benedict is the likely starter at fullback with senior Craig Harasimowicz ready to take some snaps. Benedict played in all 10 games and made seven tackles on special teams, and Harasimowicz saw action in one game. “Kirk is really developing into a great player and brings some flexibility to play at tailback in short-yardage situations,” said Merritt.

returning. Singleterry played in all 10 games and caught four passes for 41 yards, while Holmer played in two contests. Curley played in the season finale against Butler.

Junior Myles Potter and sophomore Andrew Aldrich will look to help fill the void left by Dioguardi. Potter has played in 20 career games and caught 23 passes for 257 yards, while Aldrich played in seven of 10 games as a rookie. “Here again, we lost a guy who was a tremendous playmaker for us, but I like our overall unit of wide receivers better than last year,” said Merritt. “We have solid depth and the ability to make plays from top to bottom.”

A good core of veterans return at outside linebacker for the Wildcats, and while the starting inside linebackers have a lot of game experience, Merritt is a little concerned with depth there. “We relied heavily on upperclassmen and have been hit hard by graduation each of the last two years so this is one area where we may need some freshmen to step up in terms of providing depth,” said Merritt. Senior Bud Crawford returns on the outside and is coming off consecutive 50tackle seasons. He has played in 28 career games and recorded 114 tackles, 17 tackles for loss and 6.5 sacks. “Bud is a three-year starter and as good as they get in this league,” said Merritt. “He’s hard-nosed and steady, and we expect big things from him this year.” Senior Duane Gregg and junior Kwame Som-Pimpong enter camp in a tight race for the starting nod on the opposite side, and both will see plenty of action there. Gregg made the move to linebacker following his sophomore campaign and had 15 tackles last season. Som-Pimpong has played in all 20 games during his career and collected 19 tackles. Senior Chris Hampton and junior Peter Bakke will be first-time starters at inside linebacker, and coach Merritt believes they are more than capable of being difference makers. Hampton played in all 10 games and registered 18 tackles, including one for loss, while Bakke posted 35 tackles in 10 contests a season ago. Secondary Typically, the defensive secondary has been a concern for the coaching staff but that is certainly not the case in 2007. A wealth of experienced veterans return for the ‘Cats, enabling them to go two-deep at each position. Second-team All-PFL selection Patrick FitzGerald returns at one corner position. The senior ranked third in the league with four interceptions and now has nine for his career. He has played in 29 career contests and recorded 145 tackles to go along with

nine pass break-ups. Junior Matt Mikrut returns at the opposite corner, where he recorded 43 tackles in 10 games of action last year. Senior Zach Long returns at the free safety position after missing almost the entire 2006 campaign. He suffered a seasonending injury on the last play of the first quarter in the opener at VMI after tallying 79 tackles, four interceptions and four pass break-ups as a sophomore. Junior Matt Easton and sophomore Tyler Lemons will compete for playing time at strong safety. Easton had 57 tackles and two interceptions in 10 games, while Lemons was an impact player as a rookie, posting 34 tackles and two interceptions in nine contests. Lemons may see time at inside linebacker as well, depending on how things progress at that position. Seniors Corey Hutchins and Jeff Scott provide quality depth. Hutchins played in all 10 games and made four tackles, while Scott had 22 tackles in seven contests. Special­Teams A pair of first-team All-PFL selections graduated, leaving the place-kicking and punting duties wide open. One returner, who may kick off, place kick and punt, is senior Corey Elder. He has attempted one career field goal, a 24-yarder, which he made as a sophomore. Most of Elder’s experience has come on kickoffs, where he has a 46.7 career average in 63 attempts. “Special teams are certainly a big question mark right now,” said Merritt. “Cody is more than capable and has worked hard to improve.” Another option for the punting duties is Kirk Konert, a junior who averaged 37.8 yards a punt in 41 attempts as a freshman. Konert also returns as the Wildcats’ primary kickoff return specialist, where he set a school record with 616 yards last year. Hubbard, who averaged 7.4 yards in seven returns last year, and FitzGerald will return punts. “Patrick is very good on punt return, and we feel good about freshmen being able

– First place votes in ( ) – Seven points awarded for a firstplace vote with one point for each succeeding place – Coaches were not allowed to vote for their own team to help out in various return roles,” said Merritt. Schedule The schedule sets up nicely with three non-league games to open the season, followed by an open date, and then the sevengame PFL slate. The Wildcats were picked third in the conference’s preseason coaches’ poll, the place where they finished in 2006. The season and home opener will be interesting as Davidson hosts UNCPembroke Sept. 1, at 7 p.m. The Braves have brought their football program back to varsity status and have not played a game since the early 1950s. The league also presents different challenges because Drake, Jacksonville and San Diego all have new head coaches. “We’ve been fortunate to maintain consistency in our staff here, which is so important,” said Merritt. “With all the coaching changes in the league, it’s going to be wide open. I think San Diego is the team to beat, but the league is so tough from top to bottom, you know that each game is going to be a dogfight and that you are going to get everyone’s best.”

heAd­cOAch­TRIpp­meRRITT Now in his third season as Davidson’s head coach, Guy “Tripp” Merritt is leading the program in the right direction and looking to build on the Wildcats’ 2006 success. Davidson Head coach posted a 6-4 mark 3rd Year a season ago, its charlotte ’90 first winning campaign since 2002. The Wildcats went 5-2 to place third in the Pioneer Football League, their best finish since winning the Southern Conference title with a 5-1 record in 1969. Merritt was named PFL Co-Coach of the Year, becoming just the second coach in school history to earn conference Coach of the Year honors. Davidson placed six players on the allconference teams, and six more on the all-academic team. Defensive lineman Kyle Kinsell was named ESPN The Magazine first-team Academic AllAmerican by CoSIDA for the secondstraight year.

were tabbed I-AA Mid-Major AllAmericans by Don Hansen’s Football Gazette. 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. “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 Director of Athletics Jim Murphy. 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, while the Wildcats were 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 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 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 from 2003-04. In his final season with the Bison, Bucknell went 7-4 and ranked among the top 25 in FCS in scoring defense. The 1990 graduate of Charlotte began his coaching career as a volun-

teer assistant 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, 39, and his wife, Sara, reside in Davidson.

Brett Hayford returns for his 15th season as a Wildcat coach and 18th on campus. This is also his third campaign as the assistant head coach, a title he earned when colleague Tripp Merritt was hired as assistant Head coach the head coach in defensive line 2005. Along with the 15th Year assistant head coachdavidson ’93 ing duties, he will be responsible for the defensive line. Hayford coached the Wildcats to the PFL lead in sacks in 2005 with 24, and the 2006 squad tied for second with 22. He coached the conference’s individual sack leader in 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 an outing. Hayford was instrumental in the emergence of All-PFL South performers Kyle Kinsell and Will Funderburg in 2005. Kinsell, a two-time Academic AllAmerican, 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,” said 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 (8).

Now in his eighth year, Mike 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 Offensive coordinator was particularly noticeOffensive line able last year as 8th Year Davidson ranked sevlycoming ’93 enth in Division I FCS in passing, 13th in total offense and 15th in scoring offense. School single-season records were set for individual passing and total offense by starting quarterback Ryan Alexander. Those marks were an improvement from 2005, when the Wildcat offensive line was fourth in the league in fewest sacks allowed, which helped Alexander throw for nearly 2,000 yards. In addition, Clark mentored All-PFL South center Mike Iafrate, who earned the honor again in 2006. Through his seven seasons running the offense, the Wildcats have averaged nearly 25 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).

In his second campaign as the quarterbacks coach, Amish Patel brings extensive first-hand experience as a quarterback from his playing days at Ranger Community College and Michigan State University. assistant coach At Michigan Quarterbacks State, Patel played 2nd Year with All-Big Ten permichigan state ’03 formers Jeff Smoker and Drew Stanton, who both rank in the school’s top 10 in career passing. Prior to joining the Spartans, Patel received AllAmerican honors from PrepStar magazine at Ranger in 2000. His expertise paid huge dividends for the Davidson signal callers in 2006 as the Wildcats ranked seventh in the NCAA FCS in passing offense, 13th in total offense and 15th in scoring offense. In addition, starting quarterback Ryan Alexander ranked fifth in the nation in passing, sixth in total offense and 35th in pass efficiency en route to earning second-team All-PFL honors. Patel began his coaching career as an intern at the Philadelphia Eagles’ training camp in 2005 before joining the Davidson staff in 2006. His knowledge of and success at the position allows him to help the Wildcat quarterbacks get the most from their abilities. “Amish has great experience with a terrific football program at Michigan State, which gives him instant credibility with our players,” said Merritt. “He has already been instrumental in the development of our quarterbacks.” 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 single and lives in Davidson.

Chris Monfiletto is in his second season as the running backs coach but hardly a newcomer to Davidson football, having finished his playing career with the Wildcats in 2003. He joined the staff in 2006 assistant coach and helped coach an Running Backs offense that ranked 2nd Year second in the PFL in davidson ’04 scoring and third in total offense in his first season. 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 two seasons. As a receiver and secondary coach, he helped his squad to an 8-1 record, the MidAtlantic 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 is an excellent mentor and relates well to 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. A native of New Hope, Pa., Monfiletto is single and lives in Davidson.

As the Wildcats’ defensive coordinator for the past seven years, Meade Clendaniel has led Davidson to numerous top national statistical rankings, including the fifth most interceptions in I-AA in 2005. The 2006 defensive coordinator Wildcat defense ranked fourth in the PFL in defensive Backs total defense and tied 8th Year for second with 22 West chester ’97 sacks. In 2000, his first season, 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 six 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 over the last few seasons.” 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 former head coach Joe Susan and assistant coach Mike Clark. 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.

He coached the inside linebackers a season ago and will work with that group again assistant coach in 2006. Outside linebackers Williams 12th Year helped coach a charlotte ’78 defense that tied for second in the PFL in sacks with 22, and inside linebacker Chris Castillo ranked eighth in the league with 67 tackles. In his first eight years with Davidson, Williams coached a variety of positions on the defensive side of the ball and coached the linebackers in 1998 on one of the Wildcats’ best defensive teams ever. That squad finished second in FCS in scoring defense at 10.4 points per game, and fourth in total defense, allowing just 231.9 yards per contest. In 1999, the defense led FCS in interceptions with 28 and was 13th in rushing defense, allowing 101 yards per game. “This is my second stint with Curt,” Merritt noted. “His presence 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.” Williams lives in Indian Trail with his wife, Deborah.

Jay Poag is in his second year of his third stint on the Wildcat coaching staff. From 2002-03, Poag coached the running backs and wide receivers, tutoring Mid-Major AllAmerican Barrett assistant coach Johnson who amassed Wide Receivers 980 yards receiving as 5th Year a senior. He also mendavidson ’87 tored Brett Dioguardi, who led the PFL in receptions last season and ranked second in receiving yards per game on his way to earning first-team AllPFL accolades.

A member of the 1987 Division III national champion football team at Wagner College, he was a twotime captain and four-year letterwinner for the Seahawks. In his junior season, he was honorable mention All-ECAC.

pIONeeR­FOOTBAll­leAGue The 2007 season marks the 15th year for the Pioneer Football League, which returns to a non-divisional format for the first time since the 2000 season, the year before Davidson joined the league. After five seasons playing a North-South divisional format, the league saw its numbers reduced to eight after the 2005 season, and those remaining members Mike Iafrate

voted to adopt a full-round-robin scheduling format for 2006. Additionally, the PFL champion will participate in the Gridiron Classic versus the champion of the NEC. The PFL, a non-scholarship NCAA FCS football conference, is one of only three conferences that sponsor football as its only sport. However, the PFL is a truly national conference with members on each coast and throughout the nation’s heartland — Butler, Dayton, Drake, Jacksonville, Morehead State, San Diego and Valparaiso.

On March 29, 2007, Thomas W. Ross ’72 was announced as Davidson College’s 17th president. He succeeded Robert F. Vagt ’69, Davidson’s president for the previous 10 years. Ross’ roots go deep at Davidson. His late father, Charles B. Ross Jr., graduated in the class of 1937. His son, Thomas Ross Jr., was in the class of 1999, and his daughter, Mary Kathryn Ross, was in the class of 2001. Ross graduated from Davidson in 1972, then received a law degree from the University of North Carolina School of Law, with honors, and served as an Assistant Professor of Public Law and Government for a year at UNC’s Institute of Government in Chapel Hill. In 1976 he joined the Greensboro law firm of Smith, Patterson, Follin, Curtis, James and Harkavy, where he practiced law until 1982. Ross was then appointed as chief of staff for U.S. Congressman Robin Britt in Washington, D.C. In January 1984 Gov. Jim Hunt appointed him as a judge on the state superior court, where he served until 2000. Ross jokingly told a reporter early in his judicial career that only two jobs could attract him to leave the bench—commissioner of Major League Baseball or executive director of the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation. He never got the bullpen call from baseball, but was asked in 2000 to succeed the Reynolds Foundation’s retiring director of twenty-two years, Thomas W. Lambeth, which he did successfully for the past six years. The foundations mission was “to improve the quality of life of the people of North Carolina.” Ross has received numerous awards for his leadership and accomplishments, including the William H. Rehnquist Award in 2000 from the National Center for State Courts for Judicial Excellence, which goes to just one state court judge nationwide each year. In 1995 he was presented with one of nine national awards from the Foundation for the Improvement of Justice, and in 1994 was named as one of 10 national public officials of the year be Governing. His wife of 35 years, Susan Donaldson Ross, attended Wake Forest University and graduated from UNC Chapel Hill with a degree in education. A V I D S O N

Athletics at Davidson College represent one aspect of a vigorous, vibrant liberal arts education, designed for highlymotivated and qualified students. Many Davidson students are scholar-athletes, long a tradition at this college. Nearly one-quarter of Davidson’s 1,700 students are Division I athletes, and most others are involved in intramural sports. This interest in physical as well as mental discipline is an index of the energy and excellence that characterizes Davidson College. The college’s abiding goal is expressed in its statement of purpose: “The primary purpose of Davidson College is to assist students in developing humane instincts and disciplined and creative minds for

lives of leadership and service.” Students move through a traditional liberal arts program that has been responsive to change with additions to the curriculum of programs such as medical humanities and gender studies, among others. Davidson has a tradition of educating leaders and training creative minds to think critically. Students learn alongside one another from a superb faculty of teacher-scholars, whose first priority is the classroom. Here they receive a sound liberal arts background as preparation for careers in healthcare, the law, banking, management, politics, government service, the ministry, teaching, social science and the arts. Within five years of graduation, the majority of Davidson alumni have returned to school for postgraduate study. Community is key to the Davidson experience, and the remarkable and consistent success of Davidson alumni may be rooted in the reverence for values and commitment to service that permeate the campus ethic. One way Davidson promotes such ideals is through its honor system, one of the most distinctive aspects of campus life. The benefits of the trust instilled by the Honor Code are many: exams are self-scheduled; tests and reviews are unproctored; the library operates without a security check; and the student Honor Council arbitrates alleged Honor Code offenses. More than one-quarter of all Davidson students study for a term or a

dAvIdSON­cOlleGe Jim Murphy was introduced as Davidson College's Director of Athletics in November of 1995, returning to his alma mater to lead the Wildcats on the eve of their 100th anniversary of intercollegiate athletics and into the next century. Prior to his appointment at Davidson, Murphy, 50, spent 10 years as executive associate athletic director and Dir. of Athletics chief financial Jim E. Murphy III, Davidson ’78 officer for the Georgia Tech Athletic Association. Murphy, an Atlanta native, played football and baseball during his freshman year at Davidson. His experience has been invaluable as Murphy guides a program which is unique in its desire for excellence in both athletics and academics and has one of the smallest enrollments among NCAA Division I schools. Reflecting his support of academics, Davidson's NCAA graduation rate of 91 percent was the highest in Division I in 2001-02, second in 2002-03 with a rate of 97 percent and continues above 90 percent each year. “I firmly believe Davidson represents the ideal in college ath-

letics and think the success of Davidson's students, both in competition and after graduation proves that. “It's true that Davidson needs intercollegiate athletics, but intercollegiate athletics need Davidson even more.” Since Murphy's return to Davidson, the Wildcats have pursued several major capital projects, including the creation of the highly-innovative $10 million Davidson Scholars Program, and major improvements have been completed in Belk Arena and at Smith Field/Richardson Stadium. The last three years have seen the construction of the Belk Artificial Surface Field for field hockey, the new Alumni Stadium for soccer, Wilson Baseball Park and the football stadium expansion project including a state-of-the-art weight room, a new press box and additional permanent seating. Murphy, the 2004 NACDA Division IAA/I-AAA Southeast Region Athletic Director of the Year, is currently serving a second term on the prestigious NCAA Division I Management Council, a policymaking body within the NCAA governance structure. He chaired the Division IAA Governance Committee and formerly served on the NCAA Division I Business and Finance Cabinet, the Division I Governance Committee and the Division I Finance Committee. From 2002 to 2004, Murphy chaired the Athletic Directors Association of the Southern Conference. He was part of Charlotte's successful bid to host the NCAA Division I Men's Soccer Championships in 1999 and 2000 and also served as Tournament Director of the Firstand Second-Round games of the 2005

NCAA Men's Basketball Championship in Charlotte. Murphy is a past member of the Division I Football Issues Committee and serves as President of the Football Championship Subdivision Athletic Directors Association. He was also a member of the NCAA Task Force on Recruiting, an 18-member panel charged with changing the culture of recruiting in intercollegiate athletics. Murphy, a Certified Public Accountant and 1978 graduate of Davidson with a degree in economics, earned a Master of Science degree in management from Georgia Tech in 1979. He worked from 1979-85 as an audit manager with the international public accounting firm of KPMG Peat Marwick in Atlanta with responsibility for financial statement audits of public and private companies with up to $1 billion in assets. Murphy has been active in the community since his return to Davidson. He is a involved with Social Venture Partners Charlotte, chairs the Finance Committee and serves on the Board of Managers of the Lake Norman YMCA, the Board of Directors of the Charlotte Regional Sports Commission, served three years on the Board of the Charlotte Council for Children and three years on the Board of Directors of the Town of Davidson Youth Baseball League. Murphy's 22-year-old son, Matt, is a graduate of the University of North Carolina and works in advertising in Chapel Hill, NC.

That scrappiness captured the awe and respect of Atlanta sportswriters, who wrote of the “Wildcats” from Davidson College, whose small stature and ferocious style proved overwhelming for the Auburn camp. An account of the game notes that Morgan Blake of the Atlanta Journal remarked of the Davidson team that “no other team ever put together in these United States of the same weight as Coach Fetzer’s team could ever get the verdict over the flock of wild men from North Carolina.” Apparently, The Davidsonian picked up on the nickname and it has been so ever since, replacing such milder references as “Red and Black,” “Presbyterians” and “Preachers.”

• The men’s cross country team earned all-academic status from the U.S. Cross Country Coaches Association for the ninth consecutive year.

On November 10, 1917, a small cohort of 22 football players traveled to Atlanta to represent Davidson College against one of the most formidable teams in the South — Auburn. Auburn’s Plainsmen had massacred their first four opponents, outscoring them by a staggering margin of 141-6. According to one account, the Plainsmen were “big, quick, and undefeated,” and heavily favored (to grossly understate) in the day’s matchup with Davidson. Davidson, by the way, was 2-4 on the season, and started a line averaging 20 pounds less than Auburn’s players. Not surprisingly, Auburn dominated the game on the turf, outgaining the “Red and Black” with 240 yards to Davidson’s 91 yards. Astoundingly, Davidson pulled together an amazing offensive attack through the efforts of A.R. “Buck” Flowers, executing some truly impressive end runs, and quarterback Henry Spann, delivering a “bewildering array of for-

school-record 5K time of 17:39.33 and finished in third at the 2006 league championships, a year after pacing the 'Cats to the 2005 conference crown. A model of consistency, the team captain owns three of the school's all-time top-five 5K times. Also an All-SoCon track and field runner, Burns set four school track records in 2007 and was named Southern Conference Women's Indoor Track Performer of the Year after winning first indoor league title in the 3,000 meters. Burns' success, however, is not limited to the lanes. A mainstay on the SoCon AllAcademic team, she nabbed TIAA-Cref SoCon Student-Athlete of the Week honors and SoCon Runner of the Week honors twice in 2007. Likewise, Kinsell experienced success on both the gridiron and in the classroom, graduating with a 3.85 GPA. The first Wildcat football player to be named to the Academic All-America First Team twice, Kinsell was one of the Pioneer League's premier defenders, leading all lineman in tackles while ranking among the top five in sacks per game as a junior. That season, he was named All-PFL First Team, I-AA Mid-Major All-America Honorable Mention, Academic All-PFL First Team and Academic All-American. Prior to his senior season, Kinsell was one of 42 players — and the only non I-A player — selected to the Lott Trophy watch list, given to the defensive impact player of the year. He closed out his four-year career with 103 tackles (49 solo) and 4.5 sacks. Equally successful in the classroom, the biology major was a finalist for a postgraduate scholarship from the the FCS Athletic Directors Association.

With a student population of 1,700 who have an average SAT score over 1300, Davidson College is known for academic excellence. And with nearly one-fourth of the student population participating on a varsity athletic squad, Davidson studentathletes must strive for achievement both on the field and in the classroom. Brenna Burns '08 and Kyle Kinsell '08 make the balance look effortless, while excelling at both. Burns, a psychology major and cross country and track standout, holds five Davidson records and maintains a 3.98 GPA. The two-time All-Southern Conference cross country runner ran a
