The Tigers open the season once again in the First Down Classic, this time against Avila University. Doane is looking to improve on back-to-back four win seasons.

For the ďŹ rst time in several years, there are not any new faces on the Tiger coaching staff. The stability under Head Coach Matt Franzen could be a key factor in how the Tigers will do during the 2009 season.

Doane has had plenty of outstanding running backs go through the program. See where backs Ron Barker, Mike Sallier, Troy Bothwell, Raymonn Adams as well as many others stack against each other in the all-time ranks.

Read word for word an eight week review of Doane College football as printed by the Crete News in 1967. The articles cover the ďŹ rst 76 years of Tiger football and is followed by a recap of the last 40 years.

2009 Outlook

2009MEDIAGUIDE


2009 Preview After posting their second straight four win season, the Tiger football team will look to move forward with plenty of experience returning this season. The Tigers will bring back eight starters on the offensive side of the ball and six starters on defense as Head Coach Matt Franzen returns for his third season at the helm. At the annual Great Plains Athletic Conference (GPAC) football press conference, the Tigers were picked by the coaches as the eighth best team entering 2009. Defending NAIA National Champion, the University of Sioux Falls, was the overwhelming favorite as they collected every first place vote possible (a coach can not vote for themselves). Morningside was picked second and Dakota Wesleyan was third. The NAIA preseason poll was released and Sioux Falls will enter the season where they finished last year, No. 1. Morningside will start the season ranked fifth while Dakota Wesleyan was 19th and Northwestern was 23rd. Interestingly, the Red Raiders were picked to finish sixth in the GPAC but were nationally ranked ahead of Nebraska Wesleyan and Hastings. For the Tigers, their schedule will see them play there “tougher” games on the road, at Sioux Falls, at Morningside and at Northwestern, the traditional “top” teams in the conference. The season gets started the last weekend of August in Platte City, Mo., when the Tigers take on Avila University for the first time in school history. This game will serve as the opener of a doubleheader for the First Down Classic hosted by College Fanz Sports Network.

DOANETIGERS

Their home slate will feature three teams the Tigers lost to in 2008 by 10 points or less. Hastings will serve as the home opener and make their first trip to Crete in three years. Midland Lutheran will come calling in mid-September as they topped the Tigers by a point last year in Fremont. Dakota Wesleyan is in town for Homecoming as Doane lost by seven to the blue Tigers. Dordt makes their first appearance in Crete, having started varsity football just a year ago. Rival Nebraska Wesleyan is the final home game of the year on the first weekend of November. Offense Needs to Step Up With eight returning starters, Coach Franzen is hoping his team has matured and is ready to take huge strides forward. The offensive line returns four starters from last year with a few others who saw valuable playing time in the trenches. They are led by First Team All-GPAC performer Jake Ryba (Grand Island). Ryba is one of two seniors on the offensive side of the ball. Joining Ryba as returning starters are Cole Weihe (Lincoln), Keymo Harden (Denver, Colo.) and Jake Conley (Omaha). At the skill positions, running back is a wide open race with several players with experience returning. Jaremy Puthoff (Escalon, Calif.) was the leading rusher for the Tigers last year, collecting 370 yards. The only other senior on the team is Michael Vargas (El Paso, Tex.). He finished as the starting fullback last year and returns after posting 189 yards, third on the team. Tim Reed (Syracuse) returns and could battle for either back position after posting a team best 4.5 yards per carry before injury set in last year.

Landon Freitag

The receiver position will feature Blake Erickson (Campbell), Eamonn Feeney (Maxwell), Jeremiah Saffold (Papillion) and Landon Freitag (Byron) among others. Erickson is the top returner in yards and receptions. Devon Niewohner (Bancroft) was the starting tight end and was fourth on the team in receptions last season. At quarterback, the Tigers returner 1,000-yard passer Anthony Dunn (Papillion). A two-sport athlete at Doane, Dunn picked up the starting nod midway through the 2008 campaign and completed 57-percent of his pass attempts. He will look to improve on this touchdown to interception ratio that finished at 5-to-12 last year.


9

Youthful Defense Looks to Fill Holes With only six returners back for the Tiger defense and no seniors on this side of the ball, several players will be looking to make an impact early for the squad.

Punter is another spot that is open with Shane Heidemann (Potter) and Destry Kenning (Hebron) returning with limited experience. In the return game, the kickoff and punt return spots are open to competition. Brian Luera (El Paso, Tex.) has the most experience in punt returns, bringing back 10 a year ago. Puthoff collected eight kickoff returns last year, tops among those that return. Saffold was limited to five kick returns but led the team with an average of 21.2 yards per return.

2008 REVIEW

At linebacker, Ryan Gruntorad (Lexington) is the top returner after finishing fourth on the team in tackles a year ago. He also led the team in pass breakups and quarterback hurries. Steven Wardlaw (Beatrice) worked his way into the starting lineup late in the year. Several sophomores also return to compete for playing time after serving as back-ups last year.

Special Teams to Fill Some Key Spots The place kicker position is open entering camp but experience is available at the position in Drew Giesenhagen (Holdrege) who served in that position during his freshman year two years ago.

THE TIGERS

The front seven has the most holes to fill, especially the defensive line. Selau Sunia (Denver, Colo.) is the only returning starter up front but is a good one to build around. He was second on the team in sacks and third in tackles for loss last year.

2009 OUTLOOK

The strength of the “D” will likely be the secondary where three of the four starters return. Jacob Wit (Chester) and Josh Milz (Papillion) return at the corner positions with Zach Brenner (Valparaiso) back at safety. Milz and Brenner collected two of the five interceptions that the secondary picked off last year. Wit is the top returner in pass breakups in the secondary. There is also depth at this position which will hopefully help against some of the pass oriented teams in the conference.

Timeline (1891) The following is a historical timeline that was printed in the Crete News during 1967. The first article was written on October 12 and the last was written on November 30, eight weeks covering Doane football from the first year in 1891 up until the conclusion of the 1967 undefeated season. The following is word for word from each article. Following the November 30 article is a recap from 1968-2008 written by the Doane Sports Information Office. Football Was Different in Early 1890s When Sport Was Started At Doane (Oct. 12, 1967)

2008 REVIEW

THE TIGERS

2009 OUTLOOK

Can you image what early days of football must have been like? Back in the early 1890s, when Doane College took up the sport, the rules were still being formulated. The one official, typically attired in a top hat, strode up and down the sidelines and knew little about the game. Players slugged it out with flimsy helmets of two straps of leather, heavy sweaters and “moleskins”.

In February, 1891, Owl editor C. E. Chadsey visited Lincoln and made arrangements for the game against the University. It came off on Feb. 14 in Crete.

“Slugging” was an accepted part of the game and the aggressive player simply slugged back. There were no grassed, lighted fields with stands for the crowd; empty lots of dirt (and mud) were the scenes of Doane’s first contests and the playing time was often adjusted to fit the visitors’ train schedule.

Doane hopes in their first intercollegiate contest were hindered because none of the boys had ever seen a game of football before. The University made a four-point touchdown and a two-point goal, and then two more touchdowns.

Doane’s student newspaper, “The Owl”, was an early booster of the sport and gave detailed coverage to early games. During the first few seasons, the Tigers from Doane tackled state universities that are now Big Eight and Big Ten schools. The fiercest rivalry was, of course, with the Scarlet Stockings of the University of Nebraska.

“Misunderstanding” “By an unfortunate misunderstanding, Anderson kicked the ball over the goal line, thus permitting the Universities to make a touch back”, the Owl commented. The rush line held together remarkably well but the Doane defense was poor. When the game was called, the visitors were ahead 18-0.

One Football As early as October, 1886, the Owl commented that the only football on the campus had been ruined. The following year another ball was purchased and the boys played pick-up games among themselves.

It was a social day for the two schools. In the evening a reception was held for the visiting team, with an address of welcome by a Doane player and a response from the University. Miss Chase of Doane favored the audience with a vocal solo.

By 1889 there was still no competition with other schools and the Owl complained that other schools were getting ahead of Doane in this area. All those unofficial wrestling matches in the dorm rooms in Merrill proved the male students had a lot of excess energy.

In June, 1891, Doane accepted a challenge from Hastings College and won their first game, 36-0. They were asked to stay in Hastings overnight and participate in the Field Day exercises. Five of the team accepted the invitation and among them won 13 of the 20 track events.

In December of that year the football “was rescued from oblivion and vigorously used all afternoon. The usual number were lamed or otherwise hurt”.

“Wasn’t that glory enough for two days?”, the Owl asked.

The State Athletic Association was formed in the spring of 1890. It included State, Wesleyan and Christian Universities and Doane College. Most of its activities were concentrated on spring track meets, or Field Days.

HISTORY

The Owl chided the players, “Instead of doing good faithful practice, the boys assembled each afternoon east of Merrill Hall and spent an hour kicking the ball around. Apparently the highest ambition of the boys was to kick the ball on the roof of Merrill Hall.”

Challenged A year later, in December, 1890, the University challenged Doane to a game of football. The Tigers felt they couldn’t accept because they hadn’t practiced.

DOANETIGERS

The students found that football had a unifying effect on the school and the following fall the season started earlier. Coach and Captain S. L. Mains wrote this article in the Owl about the October, 1891, game at the University. Lose To University “At the beginning of the first half Doane has the ball and started the game with a V. Just before the V was stopped, the ball was passed by the fullback to one of the halfbacks who, by an end run, succeeded in reaching the 25 yard line before the down was made. After a fumble, the U of N boys were not slow in showing that they had seen a football before”.

The University led 22-0 at the half and won 28-6. The Lincoln team was then also in its second season of play. Doane finally got its revenge on Nov. 14 in a windy, chilly day at Crete. The game was played on the grounds east of Gaylord with Leavitt, Fuller, Mains and Sweney in the Doane backfield. The visitors scored first but didn’t make the goal. It was 6-0 after they scored a safety against Doane. The Owl report continues, “The ball passes to Sweney, who darts around the end and toward the opponents goal, passing all but the fullback. Nusz compelled to tackle low, makes a foul near Lincoln’s 25. The foul is allowed and Doane advances 25 yards… within a few feet of the goal.” Mains scored but Doane missed the goal and trailed 6-4 at the 10-minute break for the half. Revenge “Then Doane approaches the goal and Fuller makes an attempt to kick over. White of the University catches the ball and with a vigorous kick returns it well into Doane’s field. Doane takes the ball and it is passed to Mains who again plunges into the rush line. The University stands firm and a scrimmage ensues. It appears for a moment that the ball must be downed. But look! Waterman (right end rush) has crawled from beneath that moving mass and is twenty yards down the field before he is tackled and downed by Nusz.” Doane then scored and kicked the goal to lead 10-6. The University managed a touchdown and goal to regain the lead, 12-10. And then, with six minutes left… “Sweney, guarded by Williams and Waterman, advances the ball within one foot of Lincoln’s goal before he is stopped by Nusz. But Waterman is there for a purpose, the ball is tossed over the line and the third touchdown is made. At this point the game was delayed 20 minutes, that Mr. Nusz who had received serious injuries in the tackle, might be cared for”. Doane missed the goal but won the game, 14-12, the first loss anyone had inflicted on the University boys. Rough Game The rematch saw the University romp, 32-0, in early December. The University had secured the services of a “coacher” from Iowa and he had made several changes and strengthened the team. This was especially true of their new

halfback, Flippin. Although it was “an excessively rough game”, Doane was willing for a rematch. In September, 1892, F. P. Reed of Dartmouth became the first official Doane coach. They tried to schedule the University but couldn’t reach an agreement. Instead of Nebraska, they contracted a game with the University of Illinois at Omaha.

Later that month they buried Cotner College of Lincoln, 62-0. Beards were a topic in those days, too. The Owl chided one of the players, “The class of ‘97 has produced a halfback whose rush on his opponent’s line are irresistible, a cool headed captain, a poet with Homeric genius and greatest of all, a man with a prospect of a mustache”.

The Tigers tuned up with an 18-0 victory over Ashland High before taking on Baker University of Kansas. Baker won 10-0 although the Doane backfield of Leavitt, Mains, Jefferies and Fuller played well. Baker had tied Nebraska that season so Doane was not disheartened at the outcome.

A. W. Jeffries of Michigan was the coach and was content with the 2-2 season, but not the uniforms. He felt that their dingy and patched appearance was not fitting for Doane teams.

Ira Reasoner of Burwell was the big man in the line and Fred Leavitt excelled at quarterback. Leavitt was also Owl editor. Three-Game Trip Doane’s first extended trip took them to

“Followed Triangle” The literary manner consistently understated the rough style of play. The Owl said, “Iowa made a pretense to kick, giving Jones the ball for an end run. Reasoner prevents any gain and secures the ball”. Doane won it 10-8 after “Feese followed the triangle through the right for a touchdown” at the end of the game, although there was an argument about the time. The biggest thing to hit the Doane campus that year was the 12-0 victory over the University, shutting out the Cornhuskers for the first time. The Owl headline: “We have met the enemy and they are ours, a coach, seven rushers, two backs and Mr. Flippin”. Doane was determined to win and they credited “scientific football” for the upset. “Win Or Perish” “There was in every breast a dogged determination to win or to perish in the attempt”. Doane scored on a criss-cross (reverse) and “Kenagy blocked by Houston and Leavitt scored, carrying the ball to a touchdown from the 25.” A ten-yard Husker punt set up Doane’s other score. College president Perry was there to cheer them on and even Prof. Sweezey was seen to smile. The Owl noted, “Nebraska did not play as a unit. Mr. Flippin is a pleasant gentleman to meet ordinarily. However, the gridiron field has a peculiar effect on him in stirring up an unrestrained temper to acts highly dishonorable and mean”. The only explanation offered by most of the students at recitations on Monday following the game for their deficiencies was the magic combination of numerals, 12-0. Mains sported a stiff neck for a week after the game and Leavitt did his smiling on one side of his face.

January, 1895 Owl: “Harper’s Weekly gave our team quite a neat notice being one of the strongest teams in the west. The writer quite severely criticized our western teams for playing coaches. By vote of our team, in the future Doane will play nothing but amateur players. We will not permit the sport to degenerate into professionalism.” It’s a tossup whether the 1894 or 1895 Tigers team were the best of that decade. The ‘95 club couldn’t beat the University but they pulled off an amazing trip to Iowa that saw them win all three games in four days. Big Road Trip Manager “Suey” Mains provided new orange and black sweaters for the team. It was a short season that year with the road trip the most important aspect of the year. Doane opened with a 6-0 victory over Grinnell as “H. Kenagy touched the ball to the sod behind Grinnell’s goal”. Teammate Lee “attracted quite a number of Kodak fiends by virtue of his capillary adornment”. The next day they showed their “win or die spirit” in defeating the State University of Iowa at Iowa City, 10-0. Doane’s criss-cross play was getting famous as Mains and Harry Kenagy scored. The sweep was completed on Monday when Des Moines fell 16-6. “Kenagy was called on and responded in his usual graceful manner by touching the ball behind Des Moines’ goal”. Although Doane led 4-0 at the half, the home team took the lead and then “Doane was mad and played that way”. Battered and bruised “Suey” Mains scored for Doane and Bush (of Beatrice) kicked the goal and the Tigers finally won it. Pandemonium The good news was wired back to Crete and bonfires were lit. “Everybody was wild, but got wilder,” the Owl said. “Bonfires were lighted on the campus and in town and pandemonium cocked the canon”.

HISTORY

The 1894 season was longer and more exciting. The rush line included H. Kenagy, Reasoner, Owen, Fisher, Lee, Stull and Houston. Backs were Leavitt, Sands, Feese and Mains. H. L. Lyman of Yale coached and they opened with a 26-0 win over “last year’s Ashland High team”. They also whipped Nebraska City High, 38-0.

The team returned to Crete on Wednesday and began preparing for Saturday’s game with Grinnell, “The Champions of Iowa”.

2008 REVIEW

They wound up with a 66-0 romp over Gates College of Neligh. The rules of that year called for a five-yard gain before a first down was allowed.

“Owing to the close succession of two hard games, and the change in climate and diet, the Doane team was not in the best condition. Ottawa is strong, composed of six from the old Baker U. team, the star guard from last year’s KU team and one from the Northwestern U. of Kansas”, the Owl observed. They handled Doane, 16-0.

New Field Football fever had set in at Doane and a movement was started for a new field. To date, the games had been played on ground near the Academy (Fifth and Ivy) and that was too far from the school. The students wanted a field near Whitin Library, because the basement there was fitted up for a gymnasium and showers. About then, Crete businessmen pitched in to build Athletic Park just across the tracks from the Burlington depot to be used by both Doane and Crete High teams.

THE TIGERS

1893 Season In the fall of 1893 Doane boasted of an enrollment of 128. The season opened with a 28-0 loss to the University. The Owl complained that the Lincoln boys “played brutal football, slugging promiscuously and leaping with full force upon men after they were down.” Several Doane players were “laid out”.

Two days later they whipped Topeka Athletic Club at Washburn Field 18-0. The following day they met Ottawa U. at Ottawa, Kansas.

“Reasoner dislocated his shoulder in the Iowa game and the third day after the shoulder was set, he played against the University. How’s that for grit?”

2009 OUTLOOK

Meet Illinois Doane lost that match 20-0 because of the “preponderance of beef on the opposing side and the inability of Doane boys to tackle low”. Two days later Nebraska defeated Illinois 6-0.

Lawrence, Kansas to meet KU and then on to Topeka and to Ottawa. KU led 8-6 at the half and won 22-12. “Doane was only prevented from tieing the score by a rank decision on an off side play” the Owl noted.

Timeline (1895-1902) A large float was prepared and pulled down to the train on Tuesday. A thousand people were there to greet the victorious team. They were loaded on the float and pulled around Crete. The cheer: “The Doane eleven, what did they do? They beat Grinnell and Iowa, too. And what did they do with Des Moines, you men, why they did the same thing over again”. Lose To Kansas Their next battle was against Kansas at Kansas City and it was “a succession of misfortunes”. Harry Kenagy scored on the criss-cross but then Mains sprained an ankle and Kansas tied 6-6 at the half. “Capt. Piatt of KU, renowned for his strong arm and weak head, struck Johnson a powerful blow with his fist, which put our remaining star half-back out for the game.” Reasoner was also put out and KU scored 18 points in the final ten minutes to win, 32-6.

HISTORY

2008 REVIEW

THE TIGERS

Doane had scheduled a game against Minnesota at Minneapolis, but that was cancelled because the Gophers wanted to rest up for their match with Wisconsin. So the Tigers decided to “have a go at” the University of Nebraska.

The Huskers twisted the Tigers’ tail 24-0 as Wilson and Shedd played very well for the winners. The 1895 season saw Doane win from the three Iowa teams but lose to the Universities of Kansas and Nebraska. Green Team It was a green team that took the field for Doane in 1896. Tarkio bounced them 16-0 before coach C. L. Thomas took over the club. Then the University took them to camp 20-0 at the old M Street park in Lincoln. Raymond Benedict, who grew up in Crete, ran 55 yards for one of the touchdowns. The Doane history book also notes that the Tigers lost to Wesleyan 8-4. The latter half of the season was overshadowed by the tragedy in Kansas. The Tigers returned to Kansas for a rematch with the Jayhawks, this time in Lawrence. The host were ahead 10-4 when “the most distressing accident which has occurred in western football” happened.

Tragedy “Kansas sent their fullback around their end. Being a speedy man he succeeded in escaping Doane’s half and end, then dodged through the line and had a clear field with the exception of Bert Serf, who was playing back. Serf saw that the man was coming through and immediately started for that part of the field. He turned slightly to make the tackle and just as he had fairly faced the man, he was struck and knocked back on his head.” “He brought the runner to the ground but his arms fell back lifelessly and the ball was downed on the line”. The unconscious Doane quarterback was taken to a hotel by a doctor. While members of both teams waited in the hallways, he died quietly at 11:00 p.m. Funeral services were held at the hotel and the Kansas team acted as pallbearers. There was a huge crowd at the depot in Kansas City as the sad delegation of players of both squads left for Crete. Doane president Perry preached at the funeral in Hastings, the hometown of young Mr. Serf.

Tigers Were 1904 Nebraska College Champs (Oct. 19, 1967) The tragedy put a stop to the sport at Doane and the state Legislature considered a bill to ban football. The measure was defeated and other schools continued the sport, but not Doane. The sport was not revived on the hill until 1899. The tragedy that ended the 1896 Doane football season left a pall over the campus for years. Besketball was substituted for the gridiron sport, but there was no suitable court for the team and the game was not accepted by the students.

triangle play that helped them defeat Franklin Academy, 16-0. The 1900 season opened with the news that the long awaited athletic field on the campus was nearing reality. It was across the ravine east of Merrill and is today’s practice field. Mains was again the coach and the new Athletic Board included townsmen M. E. Haight and Dr. Pallett. The inexperienced Tigers were outclassed in science and weight at Tarkio, 43-0. They showed much improvement in trouncing Hastings, 25-0. The Lincoln High game was a thriller that Doane finally won, 5-0. Darkness shortened the game.

Revival By the fall of 1899 the college paper helped revive the interest in football. A group of untrained students formed a team and lost a 6-5 game to the boys from Crete High. Finally the faculty agreed to allow Doane to field an intercollegiate team again, but limited the students to one game a week.

Win Three in 1900 Length of games varied in those years. The Tarkio game lasted 40 minutes but the second game against Hastings had 25-minute halves. Hastings again fell 5-0, as Hank Wendland set up the Doane touchdown. Right tackle Theobald M. Patten scored in the game played at the old Athletic Park downtown. It was a 3-1 season and Doane had re-established itself as a Nebraska college football power.

Crete businessmen heartily endorsed the decision. Lincoln High defeated that Doane team 14-0 but the Tigers bounced back for a 32-0 win at the expense of York College. S. L. Mains took over the coaching duties and installed the old

6-0 in a rain-shortened game. The University second team fell 6-0 as did the Medics in a rematch, 39-0. The backfield of Bowlby, Carlson, Houston and Wendland led the Bengals past Grand Island College 15-11 and the Bellevue College Elks were dropped, 13-0. New Coach, Field Joseph A. Pipal of Beloit took over the reins in 1902 as Doane had a 3-3 season. The new athletic field was initiated that year. The University won 51-0 as Doane lost Fuhrer and Tidball on injuries. Leaders for the winners were Westover, Benedict and Bender. The Lincoln Medics were again defeated, 11-0 but Creighton University defeated the fumbling Tigers 12-5. Doane gained a share of the state championship by defeating Bellevue 23-6 and Hastings 28-0. In a fierce, 70-minute game, the Tigers fell to Grand Island 6-0 to end the season. Milo O. Smith of Grinnell coached the 1903 team and R. F. Ireland of Crete was the captain. A 23-0 victory over Crete High helped them to a 4-1-1 year. The alumni held them to a 6-0 score in a practice game that saw “has beens” Mains, Bowlby and Leavitt showed the college boys how the game used to be played.

Lose To Bellevue Brownell of Doane scored seven times as the Tigers buried Hastings 73-0. Bellevue won a disputed 12-5 game that saw the Elks score during a time out. Their hardest game that year was against the Ft. Dodge Light Guards, “a professional team”. It ended 5-5 as Brownell’s 40-yard place kick just barely missed. Grand Island was shut out 16-0 as John Tidball, Brownell and Vance scored. The Lincoln Medics were the final victims, 33-6.

The University of South Dakota had too much for the Tigers 23-0 in the Vermillion contest. One SDU player was kicked out for “rough playing”. Doane’s other loss that year was at Topeka against Washburn, 45-6. It was a clean, hard game but the all-night train ride didn’t help the Doane chances.

Doane felt that if the final 23 minutes would have been played, the score would have been 60-6. But the Bengals were content with the league crown and a 4-0 record in Nebraska competition.

Doane edged St. Mary’s of Kansas 23-17 before the University trampled the Tigers, 43-5. “Without Benedict, Nebraska could not beat us by 20 points,” the Owl observed. “But they had Benedict”.

2-4-1 in 1906 John Fuhrer returned as coach for the 1906 year and Harold E. Day was captain. The Board of Control provided part of the equipment for each football candidate, but the Tigers had just two lettermen back from 1905. They opened with a 10-5 victory over Peru but the University used a new weapon, a forward pass, to win, 28-0. An “unsatisfactory game” saw Hastings defeated 4-2 on Day’s four-point place kick. Tarkio tied the Bengals 0-0 and Bellevue gained revenge, 12-5. But “We’ll dehorn the Bellevue Elk next year” the Owl vowed. Creighton won the final game that fall, 27-6. “School Marms” Win The 1907 season was a disappointment, with Doane winning just two of seven games. They held Grand Island to two first downs and won 22-0. A favorite play that year was an “on side kick” from scrimmage. The Owl was disgusted that the team lost to “the school marms” of Peru, 11-6. Things were really bad when Yankton slapped them 10-0. If they could only defeat Bellevue, the season would be a success. But the boys from Elk Hill had a fellow named Browne whose drop kicking led the way for a 28-0 Bellevue win. He kicked five for four points each. Doane came out of that game badly crippled and lost to Hastings 17-14 with a drop kick the difference. The University toyed with the green Tigers, 85-0. “The real Tiger spirit” showed itself on Thanksgiving Day when Doane ended the season with an 18-0 defeat of Kearney. Then the “moleskins” were put away for the year that finished 2-5.

The rivalry with the Wesleyan Coyotes was renewed in 1908 and Doane won it 23-0. Hartwell, Korab and Dutch scored. A second half drop kick won for Hastings, 4-0. Early Homecoming It was virtually a Doane reunion for the Bellevue game here. The overflow crowd saw Doane win the renewal of the heated rivalry 14-5 that the Owl called “the greatest victory in several seasons”. The Elks scored first on a fake play but Doane led 6-5 at the half. Things looked bad when “Happy” Hartwell was ejected from the game for alleged rough playing. But late in the game Johnson booted a 30-yard place kick to give Doane a 10-5 lead. Arnold booted another squarely between the posts and Doane won it 14-5. Linemen Luke, Bronson and Spencer led the Tiger team. The fans built a big bonfire on the field after the game and held a spontaneous rally. Even though the team lost four games, they “dehorned the Elk” and the year ended on a happy note. 1909 Opens with Wins John G. “Happy” Hartwell was the 1909 captain and F. M. Clark the coach. Wildhaber and Hartwell led the way in a 34-0 romp over Kearney in a practice game. Peru fell 17-0 as did Grand Island, 16-0. The University called their October 30 match a “practice game” that year, but Doane claimed they saw plenty of Husker regulars. Doane blocked three punts but lost the game, 12-0. It was a battered and bruised team that was tied 0-0 by Wesleyan the next week. Hastings tied them 5-5 on a field of melting snow and in a driving rain. Doane played its third tie of the year at Bellevue, 0-0, although Doane felt the officials cost them the game. That season wound up with a 17-10 loss at St. Mary’s of Kansas.

HISTORY

Bellevue Downed Again Doane’s line averaged 180 pounds with one man tipping the scale at 219. Grand Island was brushed aside 28-0 as was Hastings, 33-0. Then came the cry, “We must beat Bellevue” and the mass exodus to the Omaha suburb. It was a red-letter day as the Elks bowed, 27-0. The Tiger line-up included Dowse, Day, Farrow, Spees, Graybiel, Wildhaber and Perry in the line and backs Hurd, Maresh, Fuhrer and Johnson. The team was carried off the field by the delirious Doane students.

Doane lost the spring game, 6-0 as the only score came on a fumbled punt which rolled back past the goal and was recovered by the University.

The Bengals got on the winning track 23-0 at Grand Island as their passing attack began to work. Doane had a place kick (four points), touchdown (five points), conversion (one point) and a safety (two points).

2008 REVIEW

The 1905 season opened in a field of mud that wound up a 0-0 tie against Omaha Commercial College. A center fumble caused Doane to lose 5-0 to the University scrubs. But a “week of spirited practice” brought Doane a 22-0 victory over the Lincoln Medics. Day dropkicked one score neatly over the cross bar and “Happy” Heartwell added a touchdown for the Bengals.

The mass play was outlawed and a more open game encouraged with the new foreward pass. The Owl said, “The average gain on the mass plays is judged by experts to be two yards on each down, and the steady line bucking for a gain of five yards in three downs will probably be done away with by the increase of five to ten yards to be gained.”

A blocked punt let Peru win 6-0. The Owl complained that Hartwell should have been allowed the touchdown when he intercepted a pass and ran 55 yards, but the officials ruled that he was tackled on the four.

THE TIGERS

Revenge Hastings fell 45-0 and so did Grand Island, 31-0, before the Big Game of the year against Bellevue. Those hated Presbyterians were coached by Pipal, the same man who guided Doane in 1902. Doane was ahead 35-6 when the game was called so the visitors could catch a train.

Rule Changes The season really didn’t end in the fall, if you consider the April, 1906 game against the University. The rules of the game had been changed and both clubs wanted to practice them before the coming fall.

New Stars R. L. Carns of Dartmouth took over the coaching duties in 1908 and Doane had a 3-4 year. The annual disaster went to the Cornhuskers 43-0 but future stars Hartwell and Dutch performed well for the Tigers. Yankton showed too much speed for the locals and won 5-0.

2009 OUTLOOK

The 1904 season saw John W. Fuhrer as coach and Tidball captain. Cotner was drubbed 51-0 as Day, Wildhaber, Bates, Fuhrer, Wendland, Brownell and Tidball scored. Yankton fell 39-5 in a game played at Stanton.

That season ended on a cold Thanksgiving Day with Omaha Commercial winning 5-0 and if darkness hadn’t stopped the game, Doane might have tied it.

Timeline (1909-1918) Things were changing on the Doane campus. The new conservatory and Science building were a source of pride and indoor basketball appeared. The old Congregational church auditorium was rented to the high school and college for games. The football season was a good one, even though Peru tied them 0-0 in the opener. Nebraska won 6-0 when “a successful punt-out allowed them to add another point to their score”. Drop Kicking Pays Off Wilkinson’s drop kicking paid off the next week as Kearney fell 3-0. A pass scored first for Doane and then Wilkinson’s 27-yard field goal (three points) made it an 8-6 victory over Wesleyan. Bellevue fell 5-3 as a pass from Griffiths made the only touchdown. The Elks had a 30-yard drop kick for their three points. The 3-2-1 season ended with a 31-3 loss to St. Mary’s. Earl Johnson returned as coach in 1911 and Hollis L. Bronson was the team captain. Cotner was smashed 44-0 and Grand Island fell 11-0. Two Wilkinson drop kicks accounted for six points. Doane defeated Peru 41-0 before Wesleyan came to Crete and tacked a 6-0 loss on the Tigers. It was their first loss in three years to a Nebraska college. Doane had an “off day” at Hastings and lost 10-6 because of fumbles. In the words of Owl sports editor Robert Goodall, Doane was “simply outclassed” 27-0 at the University. A special train took fans to Bellevue but they didn’t bring back a victory. It was scoreless until the final three minutes when the Elks won it on a 40-yard drop kick, 3-0. Doane won the last game of the year, 26-9, at St. Mary’s.

Library Fire As a sidelight to this game, at the end of the third quarter someone noticed a fire on the roof of the nearby Whitin Library. The whole crowd pitched in to help extinguish the flames with the aid of a garden hose attached to a hydrant. Little damage was done although the books were mixed up quite a bit by the hurried evacuation of the library. Hastings lost either 33-0 or 33-6 (it was reported both ways). Cotner was dumped 68-0 but Wesleyan won 14-0 in a “hotly contested” match. The Tigers took a 1-0 forfeit from Bellevue before tying St. Mary’s 7-7. New Coach T. T. McConnell of Purdue became the coach in 1914 and H. H. Johnston was the captain. It was pretty well established by then that a touchdown was worth six points and field goals three. The Tigers beat York 19-0 and then tied the Bobcats 0-0 “in the Peru mudhole”. Hastings, coached by ex-NU great Max Towle, tied Doane 0-0. Towle would have been the Husker captain in 1914 but was disqualified because he had played in a Nebraska-Doane baseball game in the spring. The Grand Island College Baptists had little trouble with Doane, sweeping a 32-0 win. Local fans raved about Doane’s “little fullback” Maresh as he kicked two field goals in the 13-0 victory over Cotner College. Wesleyan tamed the Tigers 26-0 for the second loss of the 1914 season. But hearts were lightened the following week when Maresh led the way for a 30-6 defeat of Bellevue here. He kicked an amazing 40-yard field goal and squirmed to two touchdowns.

5-4 in 1912 “Peanuts” Johnson returned as coach for the 1912 year that ended 5-4. Cotner fell 14-7 and Peru 26-7, although the losers scored first. Medlar, Eaman and Kretsinger scored as the Tigers tripped a good Yankton team, 21-12.

He again starred in the final game of the year, the 6-3 win over St. Mary’s. His two field goals were the difference. Medlar ran 80 yards for what Doane fans thought should have been a touchdown, but it didn’t count because Doane accidentally had 12 men on the field.

Doane partisans claimed that the hometown timekeeper stopped the game with five minutes to go and cost the Tigers a 27-21 loss at Grand Island. “We had them on the run” until the game was suddenly halted.

Coach Praised Doane boosters were proud of their 4-2-2 season and gave coach McConnell much of the credit. He came from Purdue and gave attention to the kicking game, developing Maresh into an excellent field goal man. His toe played an important part in two wins that year.

Hastings was routed 95-0 in a “Big Four” League game. Loses that year were at the hands of Nebraska (54-6), Wesleyan (36-0) and St. Mary’s (14-0) but Bellevue was vanquished 28-6. The 1913 year was a 5-1-2 affair with Earnest Frank from the University as coach. Omaha U was dropped 13-0 and Peru fell 49-0. Two of Doane’s regulars were out as Grand Island tied the Tigers here 7-7.

DOANETIGERS

Paul Schissler took over as Tiger coach for the 1915 season. Crete Mayor Parker kicked the first ball to inaugurate the year, and Doane responded with a 23-0 trouncing of York College. The next week Cotner was dropped 13-0 as center and captain H. H. Johnston was acclaimed the star. The Cotner Bulldogs were coached by the ex-University hero Vic Halligan.

Peru fell here 7-0 before a big crowd. Blust blocked a punt and Edmonds recovered for the touchdown. Edmonds also kicked the goal. Doane felt it would have won easily if Klein would have been able to play. Passing Important The backfield of Whitehouse, King, Koester and Kindig led the way in the 16-6 defeat of Hastings. Bayer added a touchdown with a pass. Hopes for an undefeated season went out the window when Wesleyan won 7-0 her on a pass late in the game. Bellevue was defeated 16-0 but the Tigers lost to the University freshmen 16-3 and to St. Mary’s 10-6. In addition to captain H.H. Johnston, those drawing praise were Blust, Mickle, Haylett and Kinney. Johnston would later come back and coach the Tigers and, during the 1940s, have charge of football at Crete High. Haylett also coached at Doane after his graduation. New Gym In December of 1915 the new gymnasium was built over the holidays. With basketball becoming more important, it was realized that the church and opera house would not suffice. The posts in the opera house floor prevented good play, it was said. “The barn”, as the gym was known, was remodeled in 1936 and is today known as Butler Gym. The 1916 year was a bleak one for the Doane team. The war was taking more and more men from college and only captain Blust, Ward Haylett, Robin Mickie and Kinney returned from the year before. They were coached by Ward from Alma College during the 2-4-1 season. Victories came at the expense of Omaha U. (20-0) and Bellevue (41-0). They lost to Hastings (6-0), Wesleyan (34-0), St. Mary’s (34-7) and York (12-3). Peru tied them 3-3. “Hooverized” Football was cancelled at Doane during 1917 and 1918 because of the scarcity of men. Many Doane students were either in the service or enrolled in the Student Army Training Corps at Doane, and it was felt that this latter group was busy enough with drills without practicing football. The yearbook commented that Doane was forced to “Hooverize” the sport during those war years, and indeed, many of the photographs showed students in the high collared Army uniforms. Since the beginning of football in 1891, Doane teams had a 78-62-12 record by the end of the 1916 season. When the boys returned from war, they would again put on the moleskins and renew their rivalries with Cotner, York, Wesleyan, Hastings, Peru and other Nebraska colleges.

1927 Tiger Team Best of the Decade (Oct. 26, 1967) It was a green team that returned in 1919. After dropping football during the two war years, coach H. H. Johnston had very little material on the squad. L. P. Mains was chosen as captain. The Tigers endured a 2-5-1 season. They managed to score just three touchdowns in their first seven games. Losses were to Cotner (10-0), York (54-0), Wesleyan (40-0), Midland (19-7) and St. Mary’s (12-7).

Bounce Back As so often happens after a poor season, the Bengals came back in the fall of 1920 to carve a 5-1-1 mark. Johnston was still at the helm as the team overpowered Hastings 24-6 and Peru 20-0. Wesleyan still had the hex over Doane; a long run by the Coyotes produced a 7-7 tie that year. Cotner was downed 6-0 and so was Midland 21-0. York fell 14-0 before St. Mary’s pinned a loss on Doane 32-0.

He returned as captain of the 1921 Tigers and repeated as all-state. Nebraska Central fell 33-0 as Doane warmed up to another good season. Hastings tied them 0-0 and the Cotner Bulldogs won 10-7. A field goal made Wesleyan a 3-0 winner. The losing streak continued the next week as St. Benedict’s took a 21-13 game.

Besides Cory and Buck, lineman H. W. “Heavy” Gausman received much credit for the 5-3-1 campaign. 50th Anniversary In 1922, Doane celebrated it’s 50th birthday. In the Semi-Centennial yearbook, S. L. Mains was asked to choose an All-Doane team since the sport started in 1891.

On the way to Lincoln, Elmer Kinney was injured in an auto accident and he, too, missed the action. The next week Doane dropped Central 30-6. More excitement was generated by “Birth of a Nation” at the Lyric Theatre that week. Although everyone disagreed on how to spell his name, the Peru immortal Bitzenbaugh (or Buettenbach) again put the whammy on Doane. His drop kick provided the Bobcats with a 3-0 win that fall. Many local fans were listening to the NebraskaNotre Dame game in the back room of J. J. Buck’s store the next week instead of following the Tigers to Hastings. The Broncos won that one 13-6 on a pass interception late in the game. York fell 45-0 the following week. Wesleyan Wins Again Wesleyan came to Crete for the Homecoming game and took back a 19-0 win. That year ended 3-4-1 as Midland won 30-7 in the finale. Coach Ward Haylett greeted the squad of 57 in the fall of 1924, the largest turnout in history. Crete lettermen returning were Harold Parks, Charles Bayer, Gordon Heyhoe and Paul Taylor. Other locals on the squad were Adams, Parker, Warkow, Jelinek, Paterson, Baldwin and Phil Taylor. Ex-gridder Frank Korab (‘12) was named financial secretary of Doane that year.

Grand Island was back on the schedule and the Zebras won the match, 10-0. A late touchdown on a disputed pass made York a 6-0 winner. Although Doane was out-weighted 13 pounds per man, they held Kearney to a 0-0 draw here at Homecoming. The season closed with a 27-7 loss at Midland. Doane named a new president that fall, Dr. E. B. Dean. A Doane graduate of 1888, he was among the students of that era who fooled around with a “foot-ball” in back of Merrill Hall before the college organized official teams. Winning Year After the 1-6-1 season, the Tigers bounced back for a winning year in 1925. Charles Bayer of Crete was the captain and Clarence Kubicek was a workhorse in the backfield. Phil Taylor scored with a 30-yard dropkick and Gerry Parker scored a touchdown as Cotner fell 9-6 in the opener. Taylor was hurt for the Omaha U. game and the Tigers bowed 6-0. New bleachers were erected on the Doane field for the Peru game. The Bengals were improved, but the campus buzzed with the question, “Can we stop Bitzenbaugh?” The answer was “no” although he had to resort to a field goal in the 3-0 Peru win. Not only did Doane lose the ball game, but someone broke into the treasurer’s office and made off with the game receipts. York Trampled Two Parker passes put Doane back on the winning track the following week at Grand Island, 12-6. Homecoming 1925 was joyous; York was trampled 85-0 as the Tigers ran up 28 first downs. Among the speakers at the banquet were F. W. Sweney (‘93) and F. W. Leavitt (‘95), both of who played on teams that defeated the University.

HISTORY

His picks: ends Joe Sukovaty and Wells King; tackles F. W. Cory and A. H. Cass; guards Hollis Bronson and E. M. Adams; center H. H. Johnston ; quarterback R. R. Krebs; halfbacks W. P. Medlar and R. W. Kretsinger and fullback G. W. Buck. The only criticism of the lineup was that Mains should have included himself.

New Coach H. J. Nossek was the coach for the 1923 season. The starters for the opener against Cotner: linemen C. Bayer, Wendorff, McQuilkan, Wissenburg, Ross, Boon and G. Bayer and backs Campbell, Johnston, Simon and Buck. “Heavy” Gausman missed that game with a shoulder injury but the Tigers conquered 23-3.

William Jennings Bryan spoke at Doane that election year and it was just as well that he took attention away from football. Hastings defeated the Bengals 44-7 that same week. Peru’s Bitzenbaugh was too much for the Tigers and Doane lost that one, 21-0.

2008 REVIEW

But the Tigers closed strong that year. Peru fell 3-0 and on Armistice Day York was downed 10-6. Trinity College was a 17-0 victim in a snow storm at Sioux City. The Thanksgiving Day finale saw Doane bounce Midland 10-6.

The Cotner game was a scoreless draw. Alvin Gembler led Wesleyan to a 32-0 victory, even though the Coyotes were penalized 140 yards. The famous Buettgenbaugh scored twice and Peru defeated Doane 18-0. The season closed with a 32-7 loss to Midland, and the Tigers had a 4-3-1 year.

Cotner came to Crete for the opener and snatched a 13-12 decision. With Gerry Parker in the backfield, Doane’s offense concentrated on the aerial game. His pass to Kinney kept Doane in the game but a blocked punt scored for the visitors and that was the ball game.

THE TIGERS

The only blot in Nebraska competition was the Wesleyan tie. The field goal was still important in 1920. Glenn Buck’s two kicks brought the 6-0 victory over Cotner. From that team F. W. Cory was chosen for a tackle position on the all-state team.

Doane opened the year at St. Benedict’s with this lineup: Higgenbotham, LeBar, Johnston and Buck in the backfield and linemen Wissenburg, Lindquist, Carter, Bayer, Wendorff, Gausman and Sukovaty. The Tigers won it, 9-7. Other victories that year came at the expense of Hastings, York and Nebraska Central.

One Win If Nebraska Central hadn’t been on the schedule, 1924 would have been the worst in Doane history. The 13-0 victory the Tigers bagged at Central City proved to be the only bright spot of the year.

2009 OUTLOOK

Midway through the season they held Hastings to a scoreless tie and the following week bested Peru 7-0. In the last game of the yea they defeated Nebraska Central of Central City, 35-0.

By 1923, 12 of the colleges in Nebraska joined into a league. In addition to Doane, there were Hastings, Wesleyan, Grand Island, York, Central, Cotner, Midland and the state schools at Kearney, Chadron, Peru and Wayne.

2009 OUTLOOK

All the scoring was in the final period at Hastings in the last game of the year. The new Hanson Field and A. H. Jones Stadium were dedicated before the game, but Doane bagged the 13-0 victory. Bayer made all-state end as 11 of the 21 Doane lettermen were from Crete. After the 5-3 year, coach Haylett produced a 5-22 club in 1926. Wilbur Adams of Crete was the captain over the nine-game slate. Just Short “We missed a touchdown by only eight inches” went the report on the 0-0 tie at Tabor, Iowa. Tom Kuzelka along with Nixon and Cluver, were the big gainers. A Parker-Bayer pass was part of the offense at Cotner as the Tigers were 25-3 winners. Football was certainly in the public eye that fall. Showing at the local theatre was Red Grange in “One Minute to Play”. Omaha U. was swamped in the home opener, 73-0. The slate was kept clean with the 28-0 trouncing of York as Baldwin and Heckenlively ran well. The field goal nemesis appeared again the following week when Chadron Normal won 3-0 on Garvin’s 25-yard drop kick. Homecoming saw Grand Island fall 36-0. Halftime was spiced by a marching performance of the girls ukulele band. Upset hopes were dashed the following Friday at Wesleyan as “a touchdown score from a fumble as the gun was fired at the end of the half” won for the Methodists. Final score 9-7. Baldwin scored for Doane. Thurlo McCrady and Hastings came to Crete that fall, thirsting for revenge. He booted a field goal for the Broncos’ only score and Doane took the 13-3 win. The Tigers intercepted five passes.

HISTORY

Doane felt it was fortunate to hold Peru to a 0-0 tie in the mud. The Bobcats came closest to scoring but the Tigers were stubborn.

DOANETIGERS

Even though it ended with a tie, most Doane fans felt it was a successful year. Bayer made all-state for the third time. Also chosen were tackle and captain-elect Byron Booth, guard Adams, halfback George Baldwin and fullback Gilbert Nixon. 1927 Was Good The 1927 season was a real surprise. A lot of men did not return from the year before, including captain Byron Booth. It looked like a “building year”, especially after they lost 7-0 at Buena Vista College. The following week the team engaged in one of the stranger games in its history. October 7 was supposed to have been and open date, but coach Haylett lined up a game in Des Moines against Still College Osteopaths. It was suspected that there were quite a few ringers on the Still team especially when a big fight broke out at the end of the game. Wendell Culver recovered a blocked punt to give Doane the 7-0 game. His placekick the following week against Midland put Doane ahead for a while, but the Bengals trailed late in the game, 6-3. The home fans went wild as “Pig” Spielman caught a touchdown pass and Doane won it, 10-6. The old Tiger enthusiasm surfaced the next week when the team went to Hastings to take on the McCrady-led Broncos. The teams battled up and down the field and it shaped up as a tie. But Doane broke it open in the final 30 seconds that the paper hailed as a “regular movie show finish”. It was Spielman again who provided the thrills. He took a pass from Culver on the Hastings 20, slipped out of a tackle and broke into the clear. But here came McCrady from his safety position, angling across the field to head him off. The two collided right on the goal but “Pig” squirmed the ball over the double stripe with inches to spare. The 6-0 victory gave the Tigers hope for a conference championship. The powerful Chadron Eagles invaded Doane the following week, and they hadn’t been defeated in the league in two years. Again a scoreless contest was in the making, right down to the last quarter. Then Baldwin drilled an 18-yard field goal and the Eagles were upset, 3-0.

Surprised It was a confident Doane team that traveled to Grand Island. The Zebras shouldn’t be any problem and quite a few second stringers saw early action. But the Zebras had upset ideas and knew how to take advantage of Doane fumbles. It wound up a scoreless draw, even though Doane outdowned them 12-1. Perhaps they were looking ahead to Homecoming opponent Wesleyan. Doane hadn’t beaten the Coyotes since 1910 but this was to be the year of the Tiger. The verdict went to Doane 2-0 on a safety. The impotent offense of the Bengals made a record of sorts: in five conference games they out-scored rivals only 21-6. Cotner was dropped 13-0 to end the season, as Baldwin rushed for 105 yards and tom Kuzelka was close behind with 90. That 1927 team was one of the favorites of the decade, if thrilling games mean anything. There wasn’t much scoring, but the 6-1-1 record that went into the books would be hard to duplicate. The line included “Pig” Spielman, Hans Warkow, Fred Rezabek, Raymond Swanson, Gilbert Nixon, bob Boon and “Pal” Sanderson. Backs were “Jug” Smith, George Baldwin, Tom Kuzelka and Bill Scheer. Swanson made all-state and was captain-elect for the coming year. The 1919-1927 era found the Tigers with a 36-288 record, with six winning season out of nine. The Depression just ahead would see some of Doane’s rivals close and those bad times very nearly wiped out Doane football, too. But something good was coming… a new field and night football.

Tigers Just Missed Perfect Records In 1929 and 1937 (Nov. 2, 1967) Roy L. Pierce began his six-year career at Doane in the fall of 1928. There were 232 students in school, 138 of them men. “Pig” Spielman was chosen captain for the year. The other members of the starting lineup that took to the field for their first game: Jimmerson, Pallett, Werner, Cerveny, Boon and Elm in the line and backs Smith, Parker, Kuzelka and Scheer. The 1928 season got off on the right foot as the Tigers brushed aside Buena Vista, 14-0.

Defeat Wesleyan The trip to Topeka wound up a 19-0 triumph for the Washburn Ichabods. Cotner was defeated but perhaps the sweetest win was the 7-0 shutout of Wesleyan, again in the mud. Drewelow and Kuzelka led the Tigers to their second win in 18 years over the Coyotes.

There was a lot of activity on the campus that fall. The new dormitory was going up and someone stole the old Fontenelle College bell before the opeing game against York. Crete High grad Glen Jessup cracked the Tigers starting lineup as a freshman to join ex-Cardinals Paul Parker and “Jug” Smith in the backfield. Other starters were Aller, Fleishman, St. John, Werner, Grovert, Mason, Elm and captain Kuzelka.

The Tigers record in the NCAC went to 3-0 when Parker intercepted a Hastings pass and raced 69 yards to bring Doane a 7-2 win. Grand Island fell to the Bengals 20-6 and Wesleyan was stopped again, 12-0 with Kuzelka and Werner leading the charge.

It was scoreless at the half but the Bulldogs broke the game open the second half, capital-

Culver plunged, Parker converted and Doane bagged a 7-6 win over York the next week. Reliable guard Ralph St. John was lost for the season with a broken leg. It was Culver again the following week, as he and Jessup were the main cogs in the Tiger attack that dropped Midland 20-0. After a week’s layoff, Doane met Wesleyan in Lincoln for another night game. Night games were getting to be a jinx for the Tigers, though. Wesleyan pinned a 14-7 loss on them and Culver dislocated a shoulder. Jessup sprinted 25 yards for the Doane score, but the loss dropped them into a tie with Cotner and Hastings for the league lead. Bob Gibbs, later Crete High coach, was the Coyote fullback. Hopes for a title were again dashed by Cotner in the 19-6 finale. But the 4-3 record marked a good year and Raymond Swanson rated allconference. His teammates on the hill that year included Sid Werner, Jug Smith, Lynn Grovert, Fred Mason, Charles Aller, Howard Elm, Wendell Culver, Emil Stehlik, Bill Stone, Paul Parker and Glen Jessup. Long Season The 1931 season was really a long one; not only did the Tigers take on nine opponents, but their record plummeted to 1-7-1. The contract was let to light and fence the new Simon Field that fall. Kansas Wesleyan took advantage of the lighter-than-usual Tigers in the opener, 20-6. Doane threw a lot that year; they completed 21 of 27 that first game. Dana proved to be the only Tiger victim that year, as the Vikings were conquered 40-0 in a Thursday night game. The next week they tied Peru 0-0.

1932 Was Better Things had to get better in 1932, and they did… a little. Thirty-five checked out gear, including these hometowners: captain and four-year letterman Glen Jessup; third year men “Bo” Yant, Bill Stone and Garfield haw lick; second year men Lumir Mika, Dan Wagner and George Kersenbrock and freshmen Frank Kobes, Chuck Stone, Glen Norton, Matt Carlon and David Mains. The team lost at Kearney 13-0 but they showed potential. In the home opener, Story ran 50 yards to score for Peru but in the second half the Tigers “came out with bared fangs”. Stone passed to Weaver and the 45-yard play tied the game. A Weaver-Stone pass converted and Doane won it, 7-6. Doane did a lot of fumbling the next week against Buena Vista. The visitors scored on a blocked kick but “Red” Fitzgibbon (another future Crete High coach) from Tobias evened it with a short plunge. Weaver and Stone combined for the conversion and the Tigers had another 7-6 victory. McCrady Again The conference opener went to Wesleyan 14-6, even though Bob Gibbs was held scoreless. A “monster crowd” came to Doane’s homecoming game against the McCrady-coached Hastings Broncos. His team won it 20-0. That year the drum corps entertained the fans at the half and somebody tried, and failed, to crack the college safe. Even though there was no scoring the next week at York, it was a thriller. There are still memories of the riot after that game and “Bo” Yant’s post-game fight got as much coverage as the game itself. Sam Somerhalter of Cotner proved too much for Doane to handle and the Bulldogs won it, 20-6. Then came the season-ending squeaker against Midland.

HISTORY

Title Game Doane and Cotner were on a collision course for the conference championship, both with perfect records. The final game of the year saw them meet, but the weatherman didn’t cooperate. There was a strong, cold wind on the late November afternoon.

First Night Game Fifteen letterman came back for the 1930 season. Coach Pierce took along a 21-man squad to Storm Lake, Iowa for their first night game. Buena Vista won that inaugural, 6-0. Peru was back on the schedule, for the first time since 1925. The Tigers won the renewal, 10-0, as Charles Aller scored and Wendell Culver chalked up a field goal.

A Hodges-Adams pass scored late in the game at Midland, but it wasn’t enough and Doane fell again, 21-7. Cotner administered the final loss, 7-0 for Doane’s fifth conference defeat.

2008 REVIEW

York went down 44-0 and the Homecoming game saw Midland fall 18-6. Parker kicked a 35yard field goal and a Smith-Elm pass brought a touchdown. Tarkio was the next victim, 7-0 as Kuzelka passed to Smith for the score.

That season ended 6-1 and it would be a long time before a Doane team could come that close to a perfect season.

Hastings drubbed them 37-0 and then the crippled team traveled to Springfield, Mo., to meet Southwestern Teachers. Regulars Werner, Hodges, Jessup and St. John were injured and the Tigers were humbled 48-0.

THE TIGERS

That 4-2-1 record was a good start for the new coach, but the 1929 year was even better.

Kuzelka scored for Doane and was a cinch to repeat as all-conference. The DeWitt native was joined by “Brick” Mason on that lineup, and Smith and Aller made the second team.

Then came a string of disasters. Wesleyan won the Homecoming game 26-12 as Frees Hall and the Gaylord gym were dedicated. A Parker-Kiell pass wasn’t quite enough and York won, 7-6.

2009 OUTLOOK

But the next week they were held to a 0-0 tie by Midland in “a sea of mud”. York fell 32-0, setting the stage for the Homecoming game against Hastings. Both clubs were undefeated in the NCAC. Thurio McCrady put the damper on Doane’s title hopes as he led the Broncos to a 28-14 victory.

It was the bottom of the depression and the school was advised to drop football for the year. But the students, as few as there were, insisted on the sport. If they had known that the season would yield just one victory, they might have decided otherwise. It was a thin squad that tied Kearney 6-6 in the opener. Frank Kobes recovered a fumble and ran for what he thought was a touchdown against Tarkio, but it wasn’t allowed and Doane was defeated, 20-0. A Bennett-Kobes pass brought a score and a 6-0 win at Buena Vista, the only victory of the season. The same combination scored the following week and Doane tied York at Homecoming, 6-6. The play covered 60 yards.

HISTORY

2008 REVIEW

THE TIGERS

Those were grim times. The Doane faculty accepted 50% salary cuts and the college needed $5,000 from its Crete friends to meet its budget. The Hastings game of 1933 reveals just how bad the times were. Coach Pierce pared his traveling squad to the minimum, yet they led 6-0 at the half. But the McCrady men came out the second half and ran up a 27-6 Bronco victory. Injuries thinned the Tigers down to a point, late in the game, where coach Pierce could find only ten men to take the field. McCrady earned the respect of the Doane followers when he voluntarily took out one of his guards, and both teams finished the game with ten men each. Doane dropped its final three contests, 16-0 at Midland, 18-0 to Wesleyan and 52-6 at Omaha U. The only glimmer of hope was that John Lothrop caught a touchdown pass in the final game. Thus ended a 1-5-2 campaign. Allie R. Morrison took over the coaching tasks and Gene Haylett was athletic director. The pre-season lineup: James Cherry, Robert Bayer, Robert Schronk, Harold Aleck, Red Fitzgibbon, Elvin Schultz and John Lothrop in the line and backs Allan Bennett, Jim Keill, George Huber and Winston Weaver. Frank Kobes had won an appointment to West Point and would be missed by the team. Losing Streak The losing streak continued into 1934, as Tarkio took the first game 13-6. Doane felt cheated on the breaks the next week as Buena Vista took the 19-12 game. At last a victim was found in Hebron Junior College; Horn scored twice and Doane won 13-0. Lack of reserves was blamed for the 26-0 loss to Hastings, but Dana proved easy, 39-0.

DOANETIGERS

Sam Somerhalder came back to haunt them at Wesleyan. The former Cotner ace helped the Lincoln-ites to a 19-6 conquest. Doane senior tackle Albert Dreier went from the playing field to the operating table during the game, as he suffered an attack of appendicitis. Doane held Midland better than they had expected, but still lost 7-0. Bennett passed for two touchdowns and the season ended with an 18-0 win over York. It was a 3-5 year and the Tigers appeared to be on their way back to the glories of old. Better in 1935 Gene Haylett guided the team to six wins in nine games in 1935. Concordia fell 39-0 in the opener and then Dana was blistered 40-7. The alert Bennett helped that rout along once when he kicked off, followed the ball into the end zone and recovered it for a touchdown. The Buena Vista game that year was a bruiser; Doane was in it until the final two minutes when a pass sent them to defeat, 13-7. Hebron proved easy the next week, 47-6, although their halfback Sloey gave the Tigers some problems. Louis “The Horse” DePoyster was a leader for Doane at halfback and Elvin Schultz added to the fun by intercepting a pass and scoring. DePoyster provided some thrills for Tiger fans the next week at Hastings. His interception and 92-yard return was Doane’s only offense as they tumbled to “Cotton” Hopp and the Broncos, 14-7. DePoyster Scores DePoyster was given the “star” title in the 27-0 homecoming victory over Yankton as he scored three touchdowns. And the whole college rejoiced in the announcement of a half million dollar gift to the endowment from the Boswell estate. Team leaders Babe Menne and DePoyster weren’t enough in the Wesleyan game. The Tigers were overpowered 32-6. Bennett was injured and Burl Stone’s 98-yard pass interception was the only good thing about the game. They returned to the victory column against Midland, 26-0, in the snow. A fumbled punt in the end zone was the only score in the York finale, and Doane took a 2-0 decision. It had been a pretty good (6-3) year, with little indication of the disastrous season that was to follow. But 1936 turned out to be nearly as bad as the winless 1896 year for Doane. Babe Menne was injured in the first game of the year, and there went a good share of the Tiger offense. The opener was a 7-7 tie with Concordia as Buck scored for Doane. Lloyd Ramsey-John Penney passes clicked the following week against Peru, but the game wound up a scoreless tie. Then came a string of five losses.

No Offense A 32-yard field goal let York win, 3-0. Hastings was here for Homecoming and DePoyster and Menne should be back in the lineup. But the Broncos had a line that averaged 193 lbs. and Doane held them off a number of times in the shadow of the goal. In the end, Weiler and his Hastings mates were too much, 14-0. Robert Taylor visited campus that fall, but the Tigers couldn’t provide any “Hollywood finish.” They fumbled away their scoring chances and fell to Yankton 7-0. That match saw Roger Howard play his fifth consecutive 60-minute game. Doane led Wesleyan 7-6 in the first quarter and gambled for a game-winning touchdown, running on fourth down. It failed, and Wesleyan went on to win, 19-7. Don Kristufek kept it from being worse when he made a beautiful open field tackle on Dawdy Hawkins after he had gained 50 yards on a kick return. Frank Kobes was a starting end for West Point that fall, but home folks were saddened to hear on the radio that he had been injured in the Notre Dame game. Things were glum on the home scene, too. Midland put the Tigers in the league cellar with an 18-13 win. New Gym The college boys were more than ready for basketball that year. The old gymnasium had been improved and renamed Butler Gym. No longer would fans have to bring blankets to keep from freezing at basketball games and the teams could dress in the new locker rooms and not have to run to Merrill basement to dress. It was a veteran team that returned for 1937, even though DePoyster and Menne were sidelined with knee injuries. Jack Sloey came up from Hebron JC and succeeded in putting his name among the all-time Tiger favorites. Other starters on that 6-1-1 club: ends Jim Cherry and Bus Norton; tackles Marvin Pollard and Roger Howard; guards William “Doc” Tobiska and Carroll Moore; center Hilary Meyerle and backs George Clark, Harold “Oz” Reeves, Russell Buck and Don Kristufek. The addition of Sloey gave the Bengals backfield speed and it showed in the 52-0 win at St. Regis in Denver. Coach Haylett used just 14 men as Peru fell 12-0. Doane was outweighed but veteran 210-lb. tackle Howard was the bulwark of the line. The rain and mud stopped the Tigers cold the next week and York held them to a 0-0 draw. Fans watched from cars around the field to escape the weather. It was a double-header the next week, as Crete and Fairbury played the opener and Doane met South Dakota Wesleyan at 9:00 p.m. Hailed as the best game to date, Doane won it 12-0 and remained unscored upon.

Hastings Mars Record A special train was chartered to Hastings for the meeting of the old rivals. Jim Cherry was out with an injury but Speedlin did a good job as his sub. The Broncos won by the thinnest of margins, 7-6. Oz Reeves scored for Doane but Norton’s kick was blocked. “The Bronco line resembled the Crete Mills grain tanks” the paper noted.

With four wins on the books, it was a “loose” team that coach Haylett took to Sterling College in Kansas. They led 6-0 at the half but the

After the game it was revealed that the legendary Sloey had good reason to score those late touchdowns. The Belvidere native had number three in the pool at Knoll’s Shoe Store (good for $10 in trade) and the scoreboard finally read Doane 33 - Sterling 0. Can you imagine the huddle conversation between Sloey and extra point kicker Rog Howard? He must have gotten the message, because his conversion attempt “was deliberately kicked in any direction except the goal posts” and Jock Sloey had his new pair of shoes.

Squeaker There was still one more game on the slate, at Midland and the Warriors were unbeaten in the league. “Kristy” was still out with appendicitis and it shaped up to be a tight game. The key play was Norton’s 65-yard punt; the ball eluded a Midland back and it rolled into the end zone. Jim Cherry recovered for the touchdown and Doane bagged the 6-2 upset. Four losing years in a row in the early thirties put the Tigers on the losing side of the wonloss ledger from 1928-1937. The ten-year total was 34-36-8. But the era had an upbeat ending, with the team bouncing back from a winless season in 1936 to a 6-1-1 mark the next year. Although dependable Jim Cherry, Roger Howard and Don Kristufek would graduate, there was some winning material coming up in Sloey, Norton, Tobiska and untried freshmen that were sure to make the hearts of Tiger fans beat just a little faster in the autumns ahead.

Footballs took some wild bounces at Doane during the 1938-1947 era. New grandstands were built at the start and finish of this tenyear span but these were just minor changes in the sport. World War II decimated the student body on the hill but then came the Navy V-12 unit and some fabulous football talent. There would be a new college conference after the war, and a hardy group of ex-GIs would bring the championship trophy to Doane.

Later in the game he plunged for a score and Ramsey converted. The Tigers needed every point as Majors and Greathouse scored for the Bobcats; the final score was 13-12 Doane. It was more Sloey the next week in the NCAC opener against York. He carried it over twice and then passed to Dutcher for a 20-0 conquest.

South Dakota Wesleyan was the next victim, 7-0, as Penney scored on a double reverse. Rivett and Moore were acclaimed the top linemen.

The Tigers were driving for the pennant and Wesleyan couldn’t stop them. Sloey and Leonard Gerner produced touchdowns and then a Ramsey-Dutcher aerial wrapped up the 19-6 Doane win. But Jim Dutcher came out of the game with a severely injured knee. Sterling College of Kansas blotted the record with a 7-6 victory here. Doane ran for the conversion, failed and the Kansans remained undefeated. The NCAC showdown again came in the final against Midland. Doane jumped to a 14-7 lead after Carroll Moore recovered a fumble, setting up a Sloey touchdown. It was 14-13 Doane with two minutes left to play, but a long pass for the Warriors shattered the dream. On the last play of the game they intercepted a desperation pass, scored and defeated the Tigers 26-14. Both clubs had a conference loss and tied for the championship. It was the final game for stalwarts Sloey, “Doc” Tobiska, John Penney, Elvin Schultz and Hal Redman.

Doane won the statistics and lost the game at Peru, 20-7. But York proved easy in the third game and fell, 13-0. “Booker” Belka intercepted to set up a score. Getting points for the Bengals were Reeves and Gerner. Bethany, at Linsborg, Kansas, was the next victim, 12-0. Bob Wilson tallied once and a Mooberry-Keith Gilliland pass added frosting. Then came the big game at Hastings and a special train carried the rooters. Two Tiger attacks bogged down and Doane lost it, 7-0. The tables were turned the next week, though. It was Homecoming on the hill and Wesleyan was a 7-0 loser to Doane. Belka again picked off an enemy pass; four shots by Reeves made it 6-0. Mooberry ran the PAT. Starting for Doane were ends Dutcher and Rozdalovsky, tackles Rivett and Edzards, guards Ogden and Milichar, center Belka, and backs Reeves, Meene, Ramsey and Pollard. Midland continued its mastery in the last game of the year with a 14-0 aerial victory.

HISTORY

Haylett put this starting lineup on the field for that game: linemen Dutcher, Rivett, Moore, Belka, Tobiska, Pollard and Bailey and backs Ramsey, Sloey, Menne and Reeves.

Sloey Again It was back to winning ways the next week, as Hastings fell 13-6 at Homecoming. Sloey plunged for an early score, and threw to Dutcher for the winning counter. Gerner, Sloey and Menne were the heroes of that one.

The record slumped to 3-4 in 1939 as Haylett searched for an offense. There wasn’t much of that commodity in the opener at Pittsburg (Kansas) State and Doane lost 20-6. Two Crete boys produced the only Tiger score when freshman “Razz” Mooberry took a pass from Lester Rozdalovsky.

2008 REVIEW

14 Lettermen Back in 1938, Gene Haylett welcomed 14 lettermen, plus Hebron JC transfers Jim Dutcher and George Bailey. Jack Sloey showed his stuff in the opener at Peru when he returned the opening kick 75 yards for a touchdown.

Timeline (1940-1943) War clouds were gathering in the fall of 1940 as Gene Haylett greeted a small squad. The boys were required to register for the draft and some took up flying lessons at the local airport. Leonard Gerner, nicknamed “Wings”, had to lose weight to fly, causing much hilarity among the team members.

2009 OUTLOOK

Mooberry was injured and missed the whole year, but newcomer Marshall Neihart gave the offense a shot in the arm. His pass to Bigelow was the only Doane score in the 20-6 loss in the opener at Peru. Jim Mather was most of the show for the winners. Names that were to become familiar were just starting to creep into the headlines. York fell 26-0 with touchdowns scored by Rozdalovsky, Bob Craven, Frankie Juarez and Neihart. The Tigers were out of their class the next week as South Dakota U. trounced them at Vermillion, 25-0.

THE TIGERS

But this light and small team went undefeated the rest of the season. Neihart-Boo Grosscup passes found their mark against Bethany College in a 25-7 win. It was 6-6 against Hastings at Homecoming as late Bronco field goals were foiled. Nip Wesleyan Neihart’s place kick was the difference in the 10-7 conquest of Wesleyan, but Burlington Junior College was swamped 25-6 in the rain. They took their revenge on Midland the final week, 13-0. Holes opened by Ogden and Melichar gave the Tiger backs running room.

2008 REVIEW

Again Doane tied for the NCAC crown. Making the all-conference team were Neihart, Belka and Bob Ogden with Bigelow, Juarez, Ragatz and Edzards getting attention. By the fall of 1941, the draft was getting to be a problem, but some how Haylett would produce his second straight 5-2-1 record. The starters against Peru: ends Wayne Weber and Les Rozdalovsky, tackles Gene Zajicek and Albert Holk, guards Jerry Hallas and Leonard Melichar, center Marion Kohel and backs Frank Juarez, Razz Mooberry, Leonard Gerner and Floyd Bigelow.

HISTORY

After the 34-7 disaster, some new faces made the lineup: Vern Loetterle, Boo Grosscup, Norm Stastny and Eugene Schleufer. The transfusion must have worked, because next week York fell 37-6. Scoring were Bigelow, Stastny and Gerner. A big Wayne team used a 50-yard pass to counteract a Gerner touchdown and the game ended 6-6. Bigelow scored on the first play as Tarkio went under, 20-6. Homecoming Postponed Hastings had a big edge in the statistics in the 0-0 tie that year. The Tiger roared at Homecoming as Wesleyan was tumbled, 31-0. It was a

Monday night game, postponed from Friday because of snow. Bigelow and Rozie led the way in that fifth straight win over the Methodists. Gene Bowker added his name to the scorers with an end run against Burlington JC as Doane won, 20-0. A novelty of that game was Melichar romping for a touchdown on a special guard reverse play. The last game at Midland saw a bus of Crete fans see that game in the afternoon and the Crete-York contest that night. Once more Midland had the upper hand, 14-6, with Ramon Little scoring both touchdowns for the Warriors. The Tigers finished second in the league.

Loetterle missed the last of the season, having entered the service. Getting all-conference mention were Tigers Weber, Reuben Schleifer, Hallas and Rozie.

From the 1941 team, Melichar, Razdalovsky and Wayne Weber were accorded all-conference status.

Navy Arrives The Navy arrived at Doane in the summer of 1943; more than 300 sailors came to the campus under the V-5 and V-12 programs. The war had a much sadder impact, too. Fourteen-letter winner Don Kristufek (‘38) died in the North African campaign that year; soon the roster of Doane men killed in the war would include “Doc” Tobiska, Bob Craven and others.

New Coach Then the curtain dropped on peacetime America and most of those familiar faces on campus were in the service. By the time the fall of 1942 came around the squad was down to 12 lettermen and no coach, since Gene Haylett entered the Navy.

Perhaps Doane football was given special attention that war year of 1943 because fans sought an escape from the war news. The Tigers were easy to follow that year, as athletes in Navy blue came from the University, Creighton, Greeley State, Denver, Omaha U. and Southern California.

An old knee injury caused Jim Dutcher to be discharged that summer, and Doane was fortunate to have him accept the coaching position just two years after his graduation. Another name out of the past, Harry Johnston (‘16) filled in as Crete High coach that fall.

Jim Dutcher’s 1943 squad made a bid to become the best ever on the hill. When he realized how good his material was, his tentative schedule included Kansas State, Washburn, Drake and the famed Iowa Seahawks.

Peru continued its mastery over the Tigers with a 6-0 win in the opener. A RozdalovskyGrosscup passing attack threatened, but the inexperienced Bengals couldn’t muster a scoring punch. This starting lineup brought an 18-13 conquest of York: linemen Weber and Grosscup, tackles Holk and Schleiger, guards Hallas and Deselms, center Loetterle and backs, Johnson, Juarez, Bowker and Rozie. That fall Bill Sonday took over management of the campus hangout, Tiger Inn, and fans hoped the return of injured Frank Shipman would help the Doane attack against Wayne. But the decision went to the Wildcats, 6-0. Share Title It was the same story the next week when Tarkio posted an 18-0 win. But the offense came alive against Hastings to the tune of 21-7 as Rosie’s passing and running made Merrill ring. Wesleyan fell 14-3 and Doane had a piece of the NCAC title again. The Tigers trailed 3-0 at the half but Frankie Juarez upset things by running from a punt position. That drive resulted in a Rozie-Weber pass for a score. Vern Loetterle went 80 yards with an interception for the final tally. Fairbury JC was the next victim, 12-0, setting

the stage for the annual Midland battle. It was 6-6 with 3:30 left when little (5-4) Bobby Betts connected with Shipman for a 35-yard score, and Juarez kicked the point. The Warriors, led by Chrisman, came back to make the final 1312, Doane.

Loaded Roster Ends were Glewick and Joy, tackles Chet Thompson and Bucheit, guards Howe and Peterson, center Smith, quarterback Dick Thompson, halfbacks Hale and Craig and fullback Debus. Bennie Dannels and Wayne Weber also saw plenty of action. But scheduling was a problem. None of the traditional rivals wanted to test this loaded Doane team and travel was limited. Peru also had a naval unit, so they found their way into the slate on two occasions. The opener here went to Doane 31-0 over Peru as little Dickie Thompson ran and passed. On the receiving end of his aerials were Weber, exHusker Creighton Hale and former Creighton U. gridder Irwin Joy. Howie Debus showed them how he used to run at Lincoln High and the University, too. A tentative game was set up with the Seahawks of the University of Iowa. They had just defeated Illinois and Iowa State and were willing to try these upstarts from Doane College. At the last minute the Des Moines game was cancelled because of Navy ruling prohibited games played at neutral fields. The next victim was Maryville Teachers, 18-14. Debus and Thompson ran up the score with Hale and Joy grabbing passes. But things turned sour the next week in the 20-12 win over

game ended 22-21.

A broken ankle ended the season for Dickie Thompson and a knee injury put Debus out of action.

Iowa State was the next foe and it was a disaster for Doane. They were outclassed by the Big Six foe, 59-0. They returned to the winning track against Peru 9-0 as Webber, Moore and Deets ran well and Dale Davison blocked a punt for the safety.

Doane’s offense hadn’t jelled in time for the first game, a 14-0 loss at Simpson. “Babe” Kasparek found a willing receiver in Frank Schultz and they combined for a 12-0 victory over Peru. Gene Valenta added another tally with an interception.

They were nosed out 14-13 at Wichita U. the following week. It was an unhappy experience for the Tigers. Merryman caught a touchdown pass put it was called back because the passer wasn’t five yards back of the line of scrimmage. But the official admitted that he was “four and a half yards back”.

York went down 12-6 as Merlin Butler scored, as did another Kasparek-Schultz bomb. Line play of Redman, Martens, Vrbsky, Gwin, Loetterle and Grossart was a key to that win and the successful season.

The Fort Crook “Jeepherders” were stalled 46-2 in a game played at Creighton Stadium in Omaha.

The game was also marred by a fight and at one point Wichita was given the ball on a roughing penalty against Doane.

Things were grim the next week as Hastings led 19-0 at the half. But the Bengals came roaring back as Norm Stastny scored and then Butler took over. A fumble on the 20 set up a Tyson touchdown and the lead was cut to one point.

Drake University, one of the few undefeated teams in the country, was next to invade Simon Field. Doane took the 12-6 decision in what many claim was the finest game ever played here. The 2,500 assembled saw Wayne Peterson, formerly of Omaha U., take an interception pass 60 yards for one touchdown.

Drake mopped up on the Tigers 59-0 in the last game. Some of the regulars had been transferred and others were home on leave. It was a dismal ending to a 2-4 season.

The Tigers themselves were getting some national attention after this win. They won again the next week, 6-0 over Peru. The Bobcats had a first down on the three but Doane held and launched a long scoring drive. Dick Adams and Wilbur Craig hit the line right down the field, with Adams scoring the touchdown.

It was a 6-1-1 season and that talent-loaded club is still remembered today. But the accelerated V-12 program cost Dutcher nearly all of his starters in 1944. The term ended on Oct. 28, so all of the games had to be played before then.

Peru won the opener 13-6 and then Marty Slovak and the Kearney Flyers came back for a rematch. Doane led 22-0 at the half with the former pro on the bench. He limbered up his passing arm in the final half and quickly ran up 21 points, but time saved the Tigers and the

Doane lost six fumbles in the 26-18 loss at Dakota Wesleyan. Rosie passed to Al Razor for one Tiger score. Kearney was the Homecoming foe, and bowed 18-12 to the improving Tigers. Backs Tyson, Pflasterer and Rozdalovsky drew the cheers of the home crowd. They went to Simpson for the last game and brought back a 13-6 win, an indication of just how much the team had improved. Rosie and Tyson scored in that one, giving Doane a 3-3-1 mark for 1945. Post War Boom There were big changes in that first post war year of 1946. The old college leagues had been combined into the Nebraska College Confer-

South Dakota Wesleyan was here at homecoming and gave the Tigers a 19-7 lesson. Doane’s only score came when Dick Punches got his 6-5 frame in front of a punt, setting up a Tyson touchdown run. NCC Championship Two feet of snow cancelled the game with Western Union College at LeMars, Iowa. Then came the showdown against Chadron. This was the Tiger lineup: ends Grossart and Schultz, tackles Aksamit and Runge, guards Birkholtz and Vrbsky, center Punches, quarterback Kasparek, halfbacks Butler and Valenta and fullback Tyson. Doane won it 21-0 in the rain as Tyson scored all three touchdowns and Morrison found the range on three conversions. Doane was among the schools considered for a bid to the Sun Bowl at El Paso, but the offer went to larger schools. But they did get a postseason chance to play Roswell Air Base in New Mexico on Thanksgiving. Dutcher’s T-formation worked to perfection that day and the Tigers flew home with a 45-7 victory. It was a good season, 6-2-1, and the first NCC football trophy belonged to Doane.

HISTORY

Strong Schedule He was able to beef up the schedule, but it was a year too late. The stars of 1943 had been ordered to sea duty and the coaching staff had to start from scratch.

“Rosie” Rozdalovsky returned to school from the service in time for the Simpson game. Doane lost 25-14 but he gave the club a more potent attack. The team matured enough to tie Peru 6-6 the next week; Dan Tyson scored on a plunge with a big assists from Irv Martens, pushing him from behind. “Fuzz” Bals blocked the Peru extra point attempt.

Then came the title game at Kearney and fans followed them in a chartered bus. It was an air battle as Kasparek unloaded a bomb to Grossart for the opening counter. Doane wrapped up the 13-7 win with a late Hal Lyness-Norm Stastny pass.

2008 REVIEW

But again dreams of and undefeated season were dashed in the finale. Down at Washburn, the Ichabods cashed every break to win 25-14. Doane fumbled on their 15 on the first play from scrimmage and they never caught up. “Bull” Craig played the whole game on a sprained ankle and accounted for both Doane scores.

Wichita waltzed 52-0 and then Peru dealt them a 34-7 setback. Bill Pflasterer shook the dust of the Merrill bell with a one-foot plunge as they defeated Midland 6-0 in the mud.

Morrison was called upon the following week for another crucial kick. Kasparek intercepted a Wayne pass and later Valenta scored and Doane eaked out a 7-6 victory.

THE TIGERS

Later ex-Husker Wilbur Craig passed to Weber, who made a shoe-string catch for the winning counter.

Freshman Team Jim Dutcher returned as coach in 1945 but his Navy help was gone. Nearly the whole team was freshmen and again featured many Crete players. Starters on opening day against Wichita were ends Ron Stewart and Irv Martens, tackles Morrie Blackburn and Ken Rethmeier, guards Pederson and Clark, center Hughes, and backs Bill Pflasterer, Jim Brannan, Dan Tyson and Bill Denton.

Into the game came Huey Morrison and his “golden toe” tied it at 19-all, and that’s how it ended.

2009 OUTLOOK

One of the most interesting games of the wartime era occurred when Kearney Air Base came to town. The offense was built around two former pros, Vic Spadiccine of Minnesota and Marty Slovak of Toledo, both of whom had played four years with the Cleveland Rams. The contest was a rouser, with the two making a potent passing combination. It wound up a 13-13 tie, and both clubs were willing to settle for that.

Timeline (1947-1949) A record enrollment of 455 was on campus in the fall of 1947, Doane’s 75th anniversary. Dutcher had a nine-game schedule planned, seven of them in defense of their NCC crown. Kasparek’s passing arm was responsible for most of the damage in the 40-0 rout of Simpson in the opener. Then came the always tough Peru Bobcats. Doane scored when Kasparek took a punt and lateraled to Valenta, who took it in for the score. Morrison converted. Darrell Mudra scored for Peru and the game ended a 7-7 tie. McDowell and Merlin Butler each scored in the 14-6 conquest of York but Dick Punches was lost for the season with a neck injury. Two former Tekamah stars were the big guns in Doane’s 14-7 win over Hastings that season. Doane trailed until a Don Gill-R.K. Hancock pass tied it; later Gill broke open the game with a long run. Linemen drawing praise were Jim Aksamit, Vern Trofholz, Al Papik and Rex Grossart.

deep into Antelope territory, but couldn’t punch it over. On fourth down from the two, Dutcher sent Huey Morrison’s toe after three points. He converted, and that was all the scoring for the night. Showdown The Tigers were undefeated and so was Wesleyan. It was figured that the winner of that Saturday night game in Lincoln would be the conference champ. The crowd, estimated at 8,000, saw all the scoring come in the second quarter. A long fourth down pass from Rex Mercer to Ray Westover gave the Plainsmen a 6-0 lead. Later they added a safety and knocked Doane from title contention 8-0. It was bitter defeat for the Tigers, but they had one more win in their system. In their final home game, former Alliance star Ed Bruere broke loose on a 73-yard touchdown run and Morrison again converted as Doane edged Omaha U. 7-6.

THE TIGERS

The 1938-47 decade found Doane on the long end of a 46-26-5 record, with just two losing seasons over the ten-year span. The transfusion of veterans, along with Jim Dutcher’s wideopen offense, brought winning and entertaining football to the hill. A lot of familiar faces would be back for the next season and football fans were destined to be in for more excitement in the years to come.

Doane Was NCC Football Champion in 1950 and 1951 (Nov. 16, 1967) It could be classed as a “hard luck” outfit; the four games they lost were each by a touchdown or less. They opened at St. Ambrose College at Davenport, Iowa. Two passes from Merrill Rose to Merlin Butler scored once and set up a Pete Rice counter. But Hugh Morrison’s final placement was inches wide and the Tigers lost, 13-12.

2008 REVIEW

But the 6-2-1 campaign was a good one and local fans turned out as never before to watch the GI-loaded Doane team. That fall a campaign was started to erect a new concrete grandstand on Simon Field.

Jim Dutcher’s 1948 team was a veteran outfit, but their record was a disappointment to fans.

Next week Wayne fell 24-7 and then Kearney came to town. Late in the half the Tigers drove

They had their troubles the following week at Peru, too. It was nearly scoreless but the Bengals fumbled in the last quarter. Darrell Mudra scored for the Bobcats and Doane was on the short end of the 7-0 final score. Things perked up the next week as the team waltzed past York, 53-0. The touchdowns came from Rice, Butler, Don Gill, Don Erickson, Hal Steiner, Gib Eggen and Gerald Georgeson. Hastings proved much tougher. A Rose-Erickson pass started the scoring and later Grossart tallied. It was an 18-6 victory for Doane with Gene Valenta chewing up much of the yardage.

HISTORY

That year had an unhappy ending at Chadron. It was scoreless at the half, and then a Lyness Butler pass put Doane up 7-0. But the Eagles rallied for two late touchdowns from Wally Calvert and Bob Isham and pinned a 12-7 loss on the Bengals.

Air Game Two touchdowns came in the air at Colorado College and Doane won again, 20-14. It was Kasparek-Erickson and Rose-Grossart with a Rice touchdown sandwiched in between. Kearney fell 26-6 next on more aerial fireworks. Kasparek and Pflasterer threw and Valenta, Erickson and Wilber Hilst caught.

1949. He was assisted by Ron Douglas. New President Dr. David Crawford was inaugurated president at Homecoming in 1948, and Wesleyan was the opponent on the field. A rain-soaked crowd saw Don Davison recover a fumble near midfield. Pete Rice whacked off yardage down to the two, where Cliff Squires nailed him. Merrill Rose sneaked over and Kasparek converted. Kenny White scored for the Plainsmen but Doane claimed the 7-6 victory. It was raining again the following week at Omaha U. Ralph Moerer covered a fumble and Rice and Gill lugged the ball goal-ward. But six points were not enough as Indians Joe Arenas and Bud Abbound tallied and Omaha won, 13-6. Gov. Peterson was here for the stadium dedication on Nov. 11 and the Chadron game. It was too muddy for the Dutcher “T”. It was 7-7 at the half after Erwin Moorberg, filling in for the injured Grossart, intercepted on his goal to stop the Eagles. But a fumble on the 11 in the last half cost Doane the game as Chadron’s Jack Barker rammed over and won it for the westerners, 14-7. Linemen Al Papik and Rex Grossart, along with quarterback Ken Kasparek, made the all-conference team. It was a 5-4 season but the club deserved a better fate. 50 Report Dutcher had 50 out for football in the fall of

The traveling squad for the opener at Washburn: linemen Moore, Schultz, Hilst, Detlefsen, Grossart, Moerer, Runge, McKenzie, Birkholtz, Wissel, Quinn, Brannan, Wanek, Hlavaty, Barth, Dorsey, Lothrop, Papik and Davison and backs Rose, Eggen Butler, Fletcher, Haley, Rice, Gammel, Chapman, Provorse, Pflasterer, Kasparek and Valenta. Washburn led 12-0 when the Tigers caught fire. A Kasparek pass pushed over one touchdown and Jim Brannan intercepted and went 45 yards for another and Doane led 13-12. But they wilted in the late minutes and the Ichabods won, 31-13. Kasparek and Rice led the way in the 26-0 shellacking of Peru and York proved easy, 19-0. Doane students were shocked to wake up one morning the next week to see “Beat Doane” and maroon H’s painted on the campus. It was easy to surmise that some Hastings students had paid a visit as a prelim to the annual headknocking. Dutcher had the team fired up for the game and the first play made it convincing. Kasparek whipped a long pass to Valenta and the Tigers were ahead 7-0 almost before the clock ticked. They won it 34-0 and were unscored upon in the NCC. Fumbles and penalties were to blame as

Omaha U. conquered, 20-6. Doane’s only score came on a Rose-Schultz aerial. They returned to their razzle-dazzle play the next week, with Kearney the 26-0 victim. Merrill-Main Trophy The students of both Wesleyan and Doane were primed for their meeting that year. So much so, that the schools inaugurated the Merrill-Main Trophy.

Squires and White made a game out of it with a touchdown each. The final gun found Doane ahead 20-14 but the argument on the interference call continued well past the end of the game.

But the second half was a heart-breaker for local fans. Rollie Gast scored, but the play that clinched the NCC crown for the Wildcats was a Don Kane-Al Bahe pass. The decision went to the visitors, 20-13. It was always difficult to win at Chadron, and 1949 was no exception. The 5-4 season ended with a 13-6 loss out west and Doane finished third in the league.

Strong Line The next season, 1950, was one of Jim Dutcher’s best with a 7-2-1 record and Doane’s first bowl appearance. Frank Kobes was an assistant that fall. The Tiger line was bolstered by Barth, Ed Hlavaty, Bill Taylor, Don Downs and Don Lorenz, but the backfield was questionable.

It was an upset of major proportions as the Tigers brought back a 7-0 victory. The only offensive show of the night was a Rose-Gill pass, but it was enough.

Doane boosters took exception to a decision by referee Worrall that prevented quarterback Anderson from playing the second half. An Eggen-Provorse pass gave the Tigers their final touchdown and Doane won it, 21-13. Midland fell 37-0 before Hastings came to Crete for Homecoming. The Tigers dominated that game but were guilty of many mistakes. Provorse’s 20-yard run gave Doane a tie, 7-7. The finale at Kearney was a key game; with a win Doane would get second place in the league behind Wayne. Doane scored early on a Pflasterer pass and then a Jack Fletcher touchdown wrapped up the 19-6 victory. Line play by Hlavaty, Barth, Gene Wanek and Don Erickson were keys to the win. Championship That weekend Chadron upset Wayne, sinking the Wildcats to a 5-2 record and a second place tie with Peru. Doane, with a 4-1-1 mark, was the conference champion again. With the crown came an invitation to play in the Bean Bowl at Scottsbluff on Thanksgiving Day. It was a snowy field that day as the Tigers took on Colorado State of Greeley. Don Erickson recovered a fumble on the 13 yard line and the Bengals took it in. Dick Anderson scored on an option play, even though center Duane Smith centered the ball too soon. Later Summers went 19 yards to pay dirt and Doane won the game, 14-6. Barth and Hlavaty were heros in the line. Former Doane coach Gene Haylett, then Chamber of Commerce manager at Scottsbluff, was

The starting lineup at Washburn: ends Don Haberman and Gene Wanek, tackles Clark Weldon and Jim McKenzie, guards Jim Snyder and Pete Eddy, center Don Downs, quarterback Ron York, halfbacks Elm and Zaruba and fullback Summers. Doane was overmatched in the opener. It was 20-7 at the half and Washburn went on to win 31-13. Zaruba and Jerry Henderson go the Tiger scores. Peru was again a power and quickly ran up a 14-0 lead. Haberman intercepted for a touchdown and then Elm took a punt, handed off to Bob Starr and he zipped 75 yards for another and it was 14-12. But the Bobcats pushed over the convincer and won it, 21-12. Omaha Upset Chadron proved easy the next week and Doane romped, 46-7. But Omaha U. brought another good team here for their annual match. Anderson and Zaruba were the leaders in the 20-14 upset. Although outweighed, the Doane line proved superior. Getting praised were Winkle, Snyder, McKenzie, Haberman and Wanek. The Tigers were “riled up” the next week at Wesleyan and bagged a 42-15 win. Zaruba counted for 18 of them. Chuck Stickles and Bob Beck had Hastings ahead 14-0 before Doane got its offense in gear the next quarter. Zaruba reeled off a 92-yard run and then one that covered 35 yards. He kicked both conversions for a 14-14 halftime tie. An Anderson-Provorse pass gave Doane the lead; icing came from Starr for a 90-yarder and another Zaruba touchdown. Doane won 34-21 and Zaruba’s 22 points gave him the lead in the NCC. Midland proved stout opposition the following week. A Summers touchdown made it 7-7 but the Warriors regained the lead. Bob Provorse romped to a score and tied it at 14-all after just one period. Later scores from Proverse and Zaruba brought a 32-14 conquest.

HISTORY

Again they opened at Washburn. The lineup: ends Don Erickson and Jim Brannan, tackles Ed Hlavaty and Ken Barth, guards Bill Taylor and Don Lorenz, center Don Downs, quarterbacks Rose and Pflasterer, halfbacks Gill and Fletcher and fullback “Jiggs” Summers.

Fireworks The Merrill-Main Trophy was up for grabs the following week. Although Doane lost six fumbles, Bob Elm and Provorse provided some fireworks. “Cully” Elm sped 90 yards with an intercepted pass for a score and a Dick AndersonGlen Edwards pass brought another counter.

Rebuilt in 1951 The next fall was another rebuilding year for Dutcher. About half of his squad was new but he had familiar faces in the line. One of the newcomers was a freshman from Fullerton, Carroll Zaruba, and before the year was over he would earn his way onto the roster of Doane favorites.

2008 REVIEW

Al Papik was made honorary captain; joining him on the all-conference team were Kasparek, Grossart and Ken Barth.

But next was Omaha U., and again Joe Arenas and gang were too much for the Tigers. Most of Doane’s offense was wrapped up in Bob Provorse’s 85-yard punt return as Omaha won, 20-6.

Barth and Erickson were among the all-conference choices that year. It was a 7-2-1 season, on of Dutcher’s best.

THE TIGERS

Heart Breaker An estimated 4,000 fans turned out for the final home game, expecting to see the Tigers clinch a conference championship in the Wayne game. Doane led 13-7 at the half after Merrill Rose sparkled with a kick return and a Kasparek-Schultz pass netted a touchdown.

Gib Eggen was one of the sparks the next week and the Bengals rolled over York 40-0. Another week brought another win, this a 20-0 conquest of Iowa Central. Dutcher had praise for the line play of Lorenz and LaVerne Pensick in that game.

at the post-game banquet. One of the highlights of the affair was Eddie Hlavaty’s singing of a few Czech songs for the crowd.

2009 OUTLOOK

Most of the action took place in the second quarter. Kasparek’s 63-yard kick return started it and Rose flipped to Valenta for another, making it 13-0. An interference call on the goal gave Doane a first down on the one, and Rose took it in for a 20-0 lead.

Hopes of a conference championship were clouded the next week at Peru. The game featured “back alley play” as Merrill Rose was lost for the year with a knee injury. This left Doane without an experienced quarterback as they lost the game, 13-0. Again Darrell Mudra was the main cog in the Bobcat attack and Summers proved a bright spot for Doane.

Timeline (1951-1954) before Kearney could get 19 points. Tie For Crown In the last game they were pitted against Wayne on a windy, snowy, sub-freezing day up north. On the first play Summers shook loose for 80 yards and a touchdown. Zaruba’s conversion gave him 68 points, on more than the Wildcats’ Al Bahe, and set a new conference scoring record. Wayne pressed 7-6 and Doane relied on Stan Hale’s punting to stall the Wildcats offense. Joe Chapman iced the game with a late touchdown and Doane won it 13-6. And with it came a tie for the conference championship. But 1951 was to be the last glory year for Doane football for quite a while. Never again would they press for conference honors. Carroll Zaruba went into the service after his freshman year when returned he would enroll at the University and play for the Huskers.

HISTORY

2008 REVIEW

THE TIGERS

Dutcher Leaves The era ended in August of 1952 when Jim Dutcher resigned to attend graduate school in South Dakota. Basketball coach Aubrey Givens was handed the football chores, too. Although it was a losing year, it had its high points. The green Tigers dropped the opener 21-0 at Simpson but they drubbed Wayne 43-12 as Frank Rose, Ron York and Don Crowder scored. Midland went down 61-19 next week. The young Tigers could gain only 98 yards on the ground at Hastings and went under, 21-0. The Wesleyan game at Homecoming proved to be another rouser. It was a roughhouse, with two players getting the boot and another suffering a broken jaw in a near brawl. York and Haberman combined for an aerial touchdown Gale Mathieson ran the PAT. But Plainsmen Hultquist, Macy and Keefer managed to shade the Tigers, 14-13. Powerful Peru was handed a real scare the next week in a match at Nebraska City. A York-Bill Best pass and an Arland Schultz placement put Doane ahead for a little while. But fumbles caught up with the inexperienced club and Peru earned the 13-7 decision. Once again big Bill Lovercheck was a play wrecker on defense. Kearney Jinx Doane hadn’t lost to Kearney since 1932 and somehow the jinx continued through the 1952 game. Wally Wacker scored for Doane and Schultz converted for the 7-0 squeaker. Schultz’s punting was an important part of that conquest. The roster of Doane heroes included Lovercheck, Stockton, Ward, Grattopp, Hurley, Carroll and Elm. Doane took to the air in the 41-21 defeat of

Chadron here. It was mostly Ron York throwing as the Tigers passed for 319 yards. Omaha U. students ran all the way to Crete with a birch bark ticket to the game for Crete mayor Fred Kerst. The game was televised and made Omaha fans happy as the Indians ended Doane’s season with a 27-0 conquest of the Tigers. Thus ended a 4-5 campaign.

keeps and used late touchdowns from Wayne Minchow and Ken Clark to snatch the 27-19 victory.

New Coach Fran Nagle took over as coach in 1953 and again it was a freshman-loaded team. The club had two one-point victories on their way to a 4-3-2 year.

Just Barely The next week the Tigers went to Kearney, wondering if they could continue the jinx over the Antelopes. Kearney was leading 12-7 when they left the door open with a fumble with three minutes left. Steiner, Crowder and Gibson rammed down to the one and Jim Griffin went over with just 25 seconds left on the clock. The extra point failed but it wasn’t needed for the 13-12 victory. Defensive standouts included Robb, Hines, Gibson and Rose.

The Simpson game was one of those close ones. A Crowder pass was deflected, but Frank Rose grabbed it and scored. Crowder’s kick spelled victory. Doane nursed that lead until late in the game, when the visitors punched over a touchdown. Willie Maas was credited with blocking their conversion try, preserving a 7-6 Doane win.

Chadron tumbled 30-0 in the snow here the next week. Don Crowder returned the opening kick 75 yards and gave the Tigers a 7-0 lead with 16 second gone. But Omaha U. was something else. The Indians proved to be the toughest opponent of the year; they held Doane to -10 yards rushing and took the 41-6 win. Engelhart and Radik led the Indians attack.

It was a defensive battle the following week at Wayne. The Wildcats scored first, but their lead was short-lived. Rose took the kick-off and raced 78 yards and then converted; the result was a 7-7 stalemate. Defensive leaders were Crowder, Bob Hammond, Don Ward and Ron Hines.

It was a 4-3-2 campaign but the team would lose just two seniors. All-NCC choice Willie Maas would be among the returnees.

“Bud” Jasnoch and Bob Sokol gave Doane a 12-0 halftime lead at Midland in the next game. The Warriors pressed 12-6 untill Maas crashed through from his end position and blocked a Midland punt on the seven. He ran it in for the score, only to have the play called back for a penalty.

This was the starting offensive line in the opener at Central Missouri State: ends Yowell and Murdoch, tackles Bull, Swanson or Lyon, guards Burrus and Chrans, center Hines, quarterback Crowder, halfbacks Rose and Jasnoch and fullback Summers.

But the play juiced up the club and they brought it back to pay dirt and won the game, 19-6. Roy Marsters, Hines, Eddy and Crowder stood out on defense. Wesleyan Baffle Hastings showed too much power in the person of senior Bill Beck and sidetracked the young Tigers, 25-13. Then came the annual Wesleyan battle, this time before 5,000 fans in Lincoln. Two touchdowns from Rick Gibson put Doane ahead 13-6 until Boyd Thompson intercepted a pass. That set up a Rollie Wiegers touchdown and Lanik’s conversion tied the game. It ended a 13-13 standoff, Doane’s second tie in five games. Peru came here for homecoming that year. The Bobcats were overwhelming favorites but Doane tied it 6-6 in the second period on a Crowder-Maas pass. Peru then fumbled on their 22 and jabs by Hal Steiner and Rose brought it within range for another CrowderMaas pass for the score. Crowder’s kick made it 13-6 after three quarters. Peru finally woke up to the fact that the Tigers were playing for

1954 Fran Nagle returned for the 1954 year, assisted by Ken Barth and Harold “Shorty” Dorn.

The Tigers lost seven fumbles and the ball game at Warrensburg. A long pass in the final two minutes beat them and the offense was damaged with a knee injury to Rick Gibson. For the first time within memory, Doane forfeited a game in 1954. They won the game on the field against Midland but then it was revealed that substitute guard Bob Gillan was ineligible and Doane forfeited it. Gillan had been at Concordia the year before and had failed to pass the required 12 hours. But one good thing did come out of that game; Nagle uncovered a quarterback in freshman Mike Lehl from Grant. Chuck Stickles and his Hastings mates tacked the third loss on Doane, 33-12. Jasnoch scored but Doane trailed all the way. Crowder Stars Fumblitis struck again in the Wesleyan game. Seven bobbles hindered the Tiger attack and it was a scoreless game at halftime. Then the versatile Crowder drilled a field goal for a 3-0 lead. Moments later the Exeter standout intercepted, setting up a Jim Herman touchdown. Doane won the game 10-0 and Crowder made

“Back of the Week” in the state papers. Other players getting praise were Lyon, Hines, Rose and Herman. Lehl and Crowder shared the quarterbacking duties in the 19-7 conquest of Chadron. Jim Hosher reeled off a 60-yard touchdown run and Frank Rose rushed for a total of 61 yards.

The string of losses continued into the last game, a 57-2 disaster against potent Omaha U. The Indians had a tremendous year and accepted a bid to the Tangerine Bowl in Orlando, Fla., after the season.

and very few stayed for the four years. Doane was finding it more and more difficult to compete on equal terms with schools who were enjoying enrollment growth. The 1954 season was a 2-7 affair, the lowest mark in 20 years. Doane was matched with larger schools and found the path a rocky one. This trend would continue and victories would be scarce, but Merrill seemed to ring a little louder when the Tigers could manage to defeat one of their larger rivals.

2009 OUTLOOK

Kearney Breaks Chain The Kearney bubble family burst in 1954. After the long string of Doane victories, the Antelopes completely dominated the game and won 21-7. The Tigers were out-charged the first half, but then they improved. A Crowder-Dean Lyon pass brought the Doane score in the final three seconds.

Peru crushed them 53-20 that year. Wayne was here for the Homecoming inauguration ceremony that saw Donald M. Typer become Doane president. The visitors led 13-0 at the half and then 20-0 before Crowder could put the Bengals on the scoreboard. He passed to Dean Lyon for one and plunged for another for the 20-12 final.

It was the same old story that fall: inexperience. The teams were loaded with promising freshmen but most of them fell by the way-side

Lack of Depth Hurt Doane Football Chances in Late 1950s (Nov. 23, 1967)

But over that seven-year span the Tigers won 29, lost 26 and tied five. There were a few games that should not have been lost, but were. And on two occasions, the Doane team pulled major upsets that provided fans with hairbreath finishes, making some of those long years worth recalling.

Lack Depth He scheduled a practice game against Concordia that fall; it was an eye-opener when his club could manage just a 7-2 victory. He had seasoned backs in Don Crowder, Jim Griffin, Swede Graff and Jim Herman, but the squad lacked depth.

Max Shindler gave them a lift with a crashing tackle near the Missouri goal, and Ted Weldon recovered on the four. Griffin went over for the touchdown, and Crowder’s deflected conversion attempt barely made it. That made it 7-7,

Homecoming Thriller It really was an upset the next week when Peru came to Simon Field for Homecoming. The lead changed hands six times, but the final gun came when the Tigers held a 22-20 margin. The Doane lineup: ends Ed McIninch and Don Haberman, tackles Vern Swanson and Lynn Lyon, guards Troy Lyon and Ron Chrans, center Bill Campbell, and backs Lehl, Crowder, Gibson and Herman.

Nebraska City junior Lynn Lyons and Wilber senior Ron Chrans made all-conference from that 3-4-1 team.

Ourada opened with a 19-yard field goal but a bad snap from center set up a Bobcat touchdown. Griffin capped a long drive and Doane forged ahead 9-7. Peru regained the lead on a 40-yard Sid Brown-John Gilmore pass. It was Doane’s Griffin who brought the Homecoming fans to their feet, when his two-yard plunge returned the lead to the Bengals, 15-13, at the half. The fans buzzed over the catches made by Gibson and Tom Brannan that first half, and wondered if the Tigers could hold on for another 30 minutes of action. Hopes dimmed when a short punt gave Peru possession of the 32. They scored for a 20-15 lead. Then Doane launched an 80-yard drive, with Gibson the wheelhorse. The climax came on a CrowderMathiasen pass, with the McCool native bowling over one defender as he fought his way over the goal. Ourada’s kick made it 22-20, and a memorable Homecoming victory. Lynn Lyon topped the tackle chart in that game. The 1955 finale came at Wayne, where a strong wind hampered both clubs. Doane scored early, with Jim Herman leading the way. It was 6-6 at the half, but Mike Johnson made it 13-6 for the Wildcats. The score went to 19-6 before the Tigers sent Crowder over from the one. The game ended a 19-13 loss. Jim Herman was the

Lovercheck Returns Bill Lovercheck returned the following year and quickly took over a starting end position. He teamed with Bob Erickson, with Les Roslund and Lyon at tackles, Don Michal and Mathiasen guards and center Tom “Stormy” Weathers. The opening backfield included Lehl, Gibson, Herman and Bud Jasnoch. The first game was a doubleheader here, with Doane taking a 13-0 decision from Northwest Missouri in the nightcap. Gibson and Jasnoch did the scoring, with Lovercheck, Mathiasen and Lyon the top defenders. McPherson College fell the following week, 147. Doane stayed on the ground as both Gibson and Jasnoch scored again. Jasnoch accounted for more than 100 yards. Their third win came over Midland in a 20-0 game. Herman scored on a 25-yard gallop and a Lehl-Don Detlefsen pass covered 53 yards, setting up a Griffin plunge. Reserve Joe Zareter intercepted a late pass and returned it for the last touchdown. Lehl Injured In practice that week, quarterback Mike Lehl suffered a shoulder injury and the signal caller duties went to Crete freshman Larry Roth. Other injuries added to Papik’s woes and Hastings delivered a 25-0 licking. Defending champion Kearney was held to a 7-7 draw until late in the game, after a Roth-Bob Erickson pass scored. But the Antelopes were deep, and sent in fresh waves of manpower to

leading rusher with 95 yards and Dick Leevers was the top tackler.

2008 REVIEW

When Papik moved from Crete High to Doane, his place was taken by Ray Westover. The two had opposed each other in the late 1940s when Westover was a regular at Nebraska Wesleyan. The year 1955 was kind to Westover, as his Crete High team won its first of three state Class B championships. But it wasn’t as rosy for Papik.

win. A safety in the final minute made the final count 12-9 in favor of Kearney.

THE TIGERS

Looking back on Al Papik’s first seven season as Doane football coach, it is easy to dismiss them as losing years. Doane was the smallest school in the Nebraska College Conference, and the Tigers were continually matched with the powerhouses from Kearney, Peru, Wayne and Hastings.

2009 OUTLOOK

It was a healthy team that won at Homecoming, 32-0 over Wayne. Papik was able to clear the bench as the Tigers finished with 500 total yards. Wesleyan kept the Merrill-Main Trophy in 1956, 10-6. Trailing 3-0, Jim Griffin twisted 79-yards to give Doane a momentary 6-3 bulge. But Chuck Evans zipped 43 yards for the Plainsmen and they twisted the Tiger tail. Doane spotted Peru a 14-0 lead in the first period, and then took the battle to the Bobcats. A couple of Jon Ericson-Detlefsen passes helped Doane press 26-20, but they faltered late and Peru won it, 35-20. Top defenders were Lyon, Mathiasen and Lovercheck.

THE TIGERS

Mathiasen was named to the all-conference team, with honorable mention going to Lovercheck, Lyon and Lehl. 1957 There were enough returning lettermen in 1957 to forge a 6-2 record and finish third in the NCC. Starters early that year were ends Bill Nienkamp and Detelfsen, tackles Lovercheck and Ray Best, guards Galen Crowder and Don Michal, center Tom Weathers and backs Lehl, Jasnoch, Graff, Lee Osborne and Ted Weldon.

2008 REVIEW

The opener was a thriller, a 19-18 squeaker past McPherson. Jasnoch tied it at 6-6, and then a fumble set up Lehl’s one-yard plunge. Lynn Koehler added the all-important extra point for the 13-6 halftime lead. McPherson scored again, but their extra point pass was batted down. They went ahead 18-13 but a Lehl-Vern Swanson pass netted the victory. Midland fell 21-7 the next week as Hosher, Jasnoch and Herman did most of the ball carrying.

HISTORY

Hastings took the Homecoming game 7-0 as a Tom Osborne pass brought the only score. Both sides did a lot of fumbling. Mike Lehl was lost for the season with a broken ankle; other injuries came to Weldon, Don Weber and Jerry Werner. Gain A Forfeit Kearney depth told the story the following week as they won 25-7. But the next week it was revealed that the Antelopes had used an ineligible player and Doane was granted a 1-0 victory in the record books.

DOANETIGERS

Chadron proved easy that year, 26-0. Scores came from Hosher, Keith Werner and John VanDiest. Getting praise on defense were Detlefsen, Michal, Best, Bob Henning, Clyde Volz, John MacNiell and Harland Ramsey. Wayne was held to 20 yards rushing as Doane won, 33-6. Swanson sparkled with a 63-yard punt return and Jasnoch also scored. Best and Nienkamp were co-captains for the Wesleyan game in 1957. The flu bug hit the campus and it was feared it might strike the team. But the club managed to return the trophy to Crete with a 19-0 victory. Detlefsen recovered a fumble, setting up a Roth score. Grabbing other Plainsman bobbles were John Siedhoff, Detlefsen and Rex Engebretson and Weathers blocked a punt. Jasnoch and Roth added the final scores. Flu Hits Flu and fumbles added to the Tigers woes in the finale against Peru. Three early fumbles and Buddy Bookwalter’s runs put the Bobcats ahead 17-0 early in the game. It wound up 31-7, although Lovercheck’s performance in his final game was spectacular. He seemed to be in on every tackle and was easily the Doane standout. He made all-conference that year and was a special mention Little All-American. Also getting national attention was punter Vern Swanson, who averaged 40.9 yards per kick. Earning all-conference mention were Michal, Ramsey, Best, Nienkamp, Swanson, Detlefsen and Jasnoch. 16 Lettermen in 1958 Papik had just 16 returnees in 1958 but the lineup included a lot of Crete players. Early starters were ends Nienkamp and Mel Emeigh, tackles Ray Best and John Siedhoff, guards Del Schardt and Galen Crowder, center Harland Ramsey, and backs Larry Roth, Bob Armstrong, Frank Anania and Keith Werner. First game jitters cost the Tigers in the Wayne contest. A bobbled pitchout gave away a touchdown and they trailed 7-6 at the half. But the offense organized for an 82-yard drive, with Roth scoring on a rollout and Irv Wenting converted for a 13-7 lead.

Honor D Award Kearney was strong and deep again and claimed a 33-0 victory. They were led by Larry Jacobson, Claire Boroff and Gene Lawhead. It was Homecoming, and fans were given an opportunity to reminisce at halftime. The first Honor D awards were presented to Mr. and Mrs. Pete Kristufek of Crete; there son Don had been one of Doane’s brightest athletic stars in the pre-war era. The other recipient was Ray Alf, he is remembered for his track exploits in the late twenties. The 1958 Tigers found a victim the following week in Concordia, 59-14. Crete players in the backfield were Roth, Armstrong, Babe Drevo and Keith Werner. Ron Barker chalked up a 50yard kick return; Frank Anania scored twice and Armstrong three times. The defense was led by Ramsey, Engebretson and Best. Armstrong and Barker led the way the next week in the 42-18 conquest of Dana. Midland provided the third win in a row, falling 27-20. The teams swapped scores and Doane led 20-13 after one quarter. Drevo scored on a draw and the topping came on a Roth-Van Diest pass, and a lateral to Anania. But that was the last win of the campaign. Pass interceptions sent them down to a 13-6 defeat against Peru here. Bookwalter was the big gun in the Bobcat attack. As a sidelight, Doane was assessed a 15-yard penalty at the start of the second half because the band and Drum Corps were not off the field in time. The Tigers threatened in the last half on strong running by Barker, Bill Buchanan and Armstrong. The touchdown came on a SwansonEmeigh pass covering 30 yards. Wesleyan Takes Trophy Wesleyan reclaimed the trophy 21-7. Swanson averaged 52 yards on four punts and Armstrong and Drevo ran well but they were unable to grind out sustained drives. It was a 3-6 year. Bob Armstrong was the leading rusher and Roth the best passer. Swanson raised his punting average to 41.9 yards.

But the lead vanished as the Wildcats launched a long effort to regain the lead, 14-13. A hard rain made for slippery ball handling. Engebretson recovered a fumble on the Wayne one, but Doane fumbled it right back. A late desperation pass was intercepted and Wayne was the victor, 20-13.

Harland Ramsey and Ray Best were co-captains for the 1959 season. Papik installed the wing T offense with good results. Although he had 28 lettermen, a few freshmen found their way onto the starting lineup: ends John Van Diest and Joe Moore, tackles Best and Nienkamp, guards Bob Henning and Siedhoff, center Ramsey, and backs Ray Graves, Armstrong, Bob Buchanan and Swanson.

Jake Moser led Hastings to a 28-0 triumph, their seventh in a row over Doane. The following week Guido Santero of Chadron guided the Eagles to a 34-13 win.

The offense clicked in the opener, 20-7 over Wayne. Graves pitched to Gary Beckwith for one score and ran for another. Barker produced a 51-yard run.


99

A strong Hastings club was tied 6-6 the next week. Clyde Volz recovered a fumble and then Barker punched it over. Later, the Broncos scored on a pass, but their conversion attempt was blocked. Guido Santero didn’t take to the wet field here, and Chadron fell 14-0. Highlights of that game were touchdowns by Armstrong and Barker, two Ray Best conversions, Graves’ passing and an interception by Des Isernhagen.

Doane overcame a Kearney lead as Anania scampered 60 yards to the eight, but there the drive stalled. Engebretson got another fumble and Barker shot over for a 7-6 lead at the half. But Kearney depth paid off in the late going with the only bright spot being a Graves-Beckwith 70-yard touchdown play.

Peru led all the way in a 28-7 decision at a cold Oak Bowl. Doane fumbled on the first play and Bookwalter took it over. Dick Place added to the tally and Doane countered with a GravesSwanson aerial.

Others getting mention were Bob Henning, Gary Beckwith, Billy Roe and Ron Goodsell.

Doane came out of the clouds the next week in the Wayne game. Dick Cochan broke the scoreless tie after the half and put the Wildcats into a 7-0 lead. Barker took the ensuing kickoff 90 yards for a touchdown, but Best’s conversion attempt was wide and Wayne won it, 7-6. Barker’s point rampage put him on top of the NAIA and NCAA small college scorers at the time. Bad Call? Doane lost to Peru 9-7 the next week on a disputed call. Graves and Isernhagen teamed for a six-yard pass and a score. The Bobcats didn’t take the touchdown gracefully; on the kickoff, Best was nailed and put out for the season with a leg injury. Late in the game Graves went back to pass; his arm was hit and the ball appeared to bounce before Ken Dostal scooped it up. The Peru tackle took it 84 yards and the game was tied 7-7. Then a Doane center shot the ball over the punter’s head from the 34 and the safety proved the Bobcats with the victory. Kearney still had the whammy on Doane, taking a 21-7 ball game. Jerry Dunlap scored all three for the Antelopes. Doane tied it early on a Barker touchdown and a Billy Roe conversion but that Kearney depth was too much. Jim Dutcher was the Honor D honoree at Homecoming in 1960 and he liked what he saw on the field. The Tigers defeated Hastings 27-12 for their first victory over the Broncos since 1951. Barker went 14, 5 and 25 yards for touchdowns, Babe Drevo had the other.

It was a dismal ending to a pretty good year, 5-3-1. Ray Best was a unanimous all-conference; other getting mention were John Siedhoff, Rex Engebretson and Harland Ramsey.

The Milford speedster had two more in the 24-6 win over Dana. The Tiger backs worked well behind the line of Moore, Beckwith, Henning, Bruning, Roe, Goodsell and Budd.

Papik had 22 lettermen in 1960, plus transfer help from Ken Parker, Gordon Jens, Frank Elliott and John Moore.

But the trip to Chadron had its usual result: a Chadron win. Playing in a strong win, the Eagles were ahead 12-0 until Barker ran one in. But that’s all Doane could muster, and they lost 12-7.

Barker Rambles Ron Barker started a tremendous year with four touchdowns, two in the first four minutes, in the 46-19 romp past Dakota Wesleyan. Bob Armstrong scored twice.

What was to be a 4-2-2 year started with a laugh. Dakota Wesleyan overlooked a contract for the first game of the season, giving the Tigers an extra week to prepare for Concordia. They needed it. To prove that the upset the year before had not been a fluke, the Bulldogs forged into a 7-6 halftime lead. In the final half Drevo plunged and then kicked the PAT and Doane won it, 13-7. The only pass the Bengals could complete was a short one from Bill Buchanan to Gary Beckwith, but it brought Doane’s first touchdown. Ron Goodsell, John Moore and John Sieber were defensive standouts. The Tigers were listless the next week, remembering the easy conquest of Wesleyan the year before. There were many penalties in that one, but the Plainsmen gave Doane a real tussle before falling, 14-6. Bob Buchanan scored both for Doane. A spectacular fumble highlighted the second half. Van Diest and Bill Petersen converged on a loose ball; the burley Petersen got the ball and Van Diest received a slight concussion for his efforts. Wayne bested them 19-7 as Hawaiian Pat Shimoda starred for the Wildcats. A BuchananBeckwith brought the Tiger score. Getting praise on defense were John Moore, Jerry Reeves and John Lammel. Scoreless Draw Ron Barker returned to his old style in the Peru game. He sprinted 33 yards to the seven and things looked good for the Tigers. Drevo pounded the line and on his fourth shot, appeared to be over. He was ruled downed a foot short and that was the closest either team came to scoring. A Beckwith punt set the hosts back to their one, but they moved it out of danger. Doane had 259 yards on offense largely on the efforts of Buchanan, Jerry Reeves and Barker. Standouts on defense were Dave Barker, Frank Elliott, Bill Talbot and Bill Petersen.

HISTORY

The frozen fans could hardly believe Wesleyan’s 21 points in the final 15 minutes. Hofman scored from the three on the first play of the period. It went to 21-19 on a Lon Johnson-Merle Faubel pass after an 80-yard drive. The clincher came when Hofman “sneaked” for 45 yards and the final touchdown.

When Al Papik began his seventh year at Doane in 1961, the school was taking a new shape. The Goodall Arts and Science building was going up, soon to be followed by the Campus Center.

2008 REVIEW

The finale was also frigid as Wesleyan visited Simon Field. It was one of those games where the Tigers did everything but win it. Ron Barker scored twice for a 13-7 lead at half and then quickly got a third. It was 19-7 Doane after three periods when the roof caved in.

It was a hard week of practice the next week to get ready for Wesleyan. And what happened? The Tigers could do no wrong, and Ray Westover’s Plainsmen little right; the final was 66-0. Barker accounted for 184 yards and four scores and the list of heroes spanned the entire roster.

THE TIGERS

Concordia tumbled 40-13 as Graves, Bob Buchanan and Armstrong did most of the scoring. Graves’ arm was also instrumental in the 46-6 conquest of Midland. Wentling had four PATs in that one as the defense held the Warriors to -16 yards rushing.

Academic Team Barker finished eighth nationally in scoring and won a spot on the Little All-America Academic team. His 109 yards per game also assured him a spot on the NCC team. He was joined by Ray Best, his third year in a row on the honored eleven.

2009 OUTLOOK

Kearney Wins Their first conference loss came at the hands of Kearney, 21-13. The Antelopes were led by massive Francis Hircock at 273 pounds; the Doane line was outweighed 20 pounds per man. But they were scrappy.

Perhaps the Tigers were looking to conference action, and weren’t ready for Concordia. The boys from Seward surprised them 20-13, with a second half uprising. It was 7-7 at the half but a 65-yard pass put Doane down, 13-7. Bob Buchanan’s run tied it, but Middlestadt swept end and scored the upsetting touchdown.

Timeline (1961-1963) Kearney was here for Homecoming and the story-book finish of that one deserves retelling. The Antelopes took a 13-0 lead into the final period when Papik sent in freshman quarterback Terry Discoe to try his luck in the air. A fourth down pass from the nine sent Ron Barker over for the touchdown.

2009 OUTLOOK

A couple of lesser-known brothers then came to the fore. The center for the conversion was wild; holder Bill Buchanan scooped it up and started running. He found Dave Barker in the end zone and looped it to him. It turned out to be a critical play. Doane went for an on-side kick and it worked. Discoe bootlegged it to the 30 with three minutes left in the game. Then he pitched to Barker on the seven, but on the next play he was smeared back on the 19. Then it happened: with the clock ticking down to one minute,

he connected with Van Diest deep in the end zone to tie the game. Drevo split the uprights with his kick and Merrill rang, telling the world of the 14-13 upset over Dick Butolph and the potent Antelopes. Fumbles, interceptions and bruises from the Kearney game took their toll at Hastings. It ended a 0-0 tie but the saddest news was the knee injury of Babe Drevo. He was lost for the season and for the first time ever, there were no Crete players left on the team. Dana fell 20-7 as Discoe clicked to Beckwith; other touchdowns came from Barker and Reeves. The year ended with a 7-2 loss to Chadron here on a cold and windy field. The passing game didn’t go and the injury-riddled runners accounted for just 87 yards. Don Schmaderer

ran for the Eagle score; the safety came when John Sieber nailed a Chadron back in the end zone. One Doane offensive fizzled out on the one-foot line. Getting all-conference mention were Beckwith, Moore and Drevo on offense and Reeves on defense. When the gear was put away after the 1961 year, the all-time Doane record stood at 255 wins, 206 losses and 43 ties. Although the Tigers didn’t come close to a conference championship in the 1955-61 span, the record was on the winning side of the ledger. Those sweet victories over Peru and Kearney made it all worthwhile, but they were few and far between. Doane would drop out of the Nebraska College Conference and new names would find their way onto the schedule in place of old rivalries.

HISTORY

2008 REVIEW

THE TIGERS

1967 Brought Best Record in 76-Years of Doane Football (Nov. 30, 1967) Al Papik’s old problem of coping with inexperience was no less in 1962 than it had been before. The Doane record that fall went to 2-5-1 as his freshman-loaded squad did battle with more seasoned clubs. That year started off on a bad note at Concordia. The powerful Bulldogs ran up a 25-6 margin at the half and then coasted. Scoring for the winners were Ed Richter, Ron Royuk and Bob Voelker. The Tigers never threatened; the final virdict was 37-18. The club went to Chadron the following week and bagged a surprise win, 12-7. It was the first time in ten years that they had been able to pull that trick on the Eagle’s home ground. Twelve of Papik’s 22 starters were freshmen, but they put together a good game. Veteran quarterback Terry Discoe topped one drive with a short plunge. Most of the legwork came from Roger Nieveen, Stan Mullen, Dennis Darnell and Dennis Isernhagen. Wesleyan Tie Wesleyan’s winless streak went to 20 games in a row the next week as the teams had to settle for a 7-7 tie. Although neither club was potent, it was another rock ‘em, sock ‘em game. John Eatinger recovered a fumble and Nieveen squirmed his way to the seven. Discoe took it over and Drevo converted. A long Slatinsky-Sankey pass brought the Plainsman score. The game ended as the Tigers were poised for a score on three, but couldn’t get it over by the final gun. Bill Stephenson’s punts made up for some of the lack of Doane offense.

DOANETIGERS

The Wayne Wildcats came to a Simon Field on a rainy night and outclassed the Tigers, 55-14. Jerry Kilcoin and Pat Shimoda ran their way to touchdowns as a few soggy spectators looked on. Dan Tesar’s 75-yard gallop brought a Doane touchdown. Doane’s team rebounded for a good performance against Peru that fall. The Bobcats figured to have an easy time of it, but Doane proved stubborn. Roger Rine intercepted on his own 15 and the Bengals began marching down the field on runs by Nathan Hinkle, Dale Hoppe and Nieveen. The Adams speedster scored and Drevo converted. Bill Tynon put Peru on the board with an 86yard run, but Doane led 7-6 at the half. The Bobcats took the second half kick down the field 64 yards for a score, but that was their last threat. Doane went to the air but frequent interceptions stalled them and Peru took the 13-7 win. Kearney Romps Kearney stampeded them 48-22 the next week as Dick Butolph tossed five touchdown passes. Fumble recoveries gave Doane a 13-0 lead early, but defensive errors and lack of depth tipped the scales in favor of the Antelopes. Showing promise were two freshmen linemen, John Eatinger and Randy Bernard. The loss string was extended as Hastings took a 20-13 decision at Homecoming in 1962. The young Tigers responded to the Homecoming crowd and were right in the ball game up to the very end. Giddings scored for the Broncs, but Nieveen got the equalizer. Gene Schmutte dropped on a fumble on the Hastings 25 and Tesar took it over; Doane led 13-7 at the half. A long Fisher

pass brought the visitors up even, and then a Doane fumble set up their winning touchdown. Defeat Dana Dana was here for the last game of the year and provided Doane with its second win of the campaign. A Discoe-John Hood pass scored early but the lead didn’t last. Punting from midfield, the Dana kicker took a bad snap and decided to run; the result was a 50-yard scamper up the sidelines and the equalizer. Doane took a 20-6 lead to the showers at halftime with a Discoe-Howard pass setting up one of the scores. It was a 20-19 ball game with five minutes left when end Gene Schmutte provided the clincher. He came in from his defensive end position and scooped up a fumble and headed goal ward. Before he crossed the double line, the ball squirted out of his hands but he hauled it back down and scored, giving Doane a 27-19 season-ending win. Getting All-NCC mention were guard John Moore of Alliance and halfback Nieveen of Adams. Drop Out of NCC The next year, 1963, would be Doane’s last year in the Nebraska College Conference. Most of the other private schools in the state had pulled out; some of them joined the Tri-State Conference. Again Papik had to dip into the freshman class for some starters. At the start of the year, this was his offensive lineup: ends John Hood and Dale Hoppe, tackles Roger Kovar and Gary Scheet, guards Cooley Smith and Terry Nodlinski; center Fred Miles; and backs Discoe,

Nieveen, Randy Bernard and Hinkle. On defense were ends Schmutte and Lanny Lockhart, tackles Gerry Dolson and Bill Peterson, guards Fred Kimmel and Jerry Overton, linebackers Bernard and Rine, halfbacks Joe Heckenlively and Dennis Darnell and safety Larry Boyer. A heavy Concordia team took the 18-0 opener as Doane just didn’t have the horses to stop their potent ground attack.

Jack Daniel recovered a fumble late in the game, and Discoe warmed up his arm. He alternated passes with Mullen’s runs to get the club downfield. Hood scored when he gathered in a pass from the 12 and Tim Storer converted.

Wayne took the measure of the green Tigers, 39-21. Again it was Kilcoin and Shimoda for the Wildcats. For Doane, the offense rested on Tesar and Nieveen. Gary Scheet drew praise for his work in the line.

The ground game began to work, and Discoe plunged for a 13-7 lead. Doane capitalized on a Peru gamble and scored again. Roger Nieveen rushed for 129 yards in that contest. Kearney applied the usual shellacking at Homecoming, 48-6. The reigning NCC champs were ahead 28-0 at the half on Dick Butholph’s passing. Tiger defensive back Larry Boyer was hospitalized after that game with a ruptured spleen; it took numerous transfusions before he was out of danger.

The following year brought some new faces, ones which would be around for quite a spell. Three Crete players made the starting lineup: Gene Schmutte, Dale Hoppe and freshman Don Dakan.

The finale was a 32-18 come-from-behind win from Colorado College. They scored on an 85-yard play on their first try but Doane fought back with a Nieveen score and a Schwartz PAT for a 7-6 margin. Jean Potvin intercepted and scored for a 13-12 Doane lead at half. More Discoe passing assured the final victory of 1964.

Early offensive starters in 1964 were ends Katzmann and Hood, tackles Scheet and Fred Davis, guards Kovar and Cooley Smith, center Fred Miles and backs Discoe, Nieveen, Mullen and Jim Ward. Freshman Mike Murphy showed quarterback potential. Graceland won the opener here 13-0 as the Doane ground game could account for a net of just three yards. The learning Tigers could reach the 30 just once. Pass Wins It Bus trouble delayed the start of the Yankton game an hour and the rains came by the start of the game. Discoe passed to Nieveen for the first score and Doane won the 12-6 mud bath on a late Discoe-Hood pass covering 58 yards. The offense seemed to jell the next week as they led 13-0 after one quarter at Tarkio but the Owl’s speedy Doug McVicker brought his team up to 13-12 after three periods. He took a pass and scored, giving Tarkio the 19-13 victory. Hastings came to Simon Field the following week, with Gerald Fischer, Tom Tutko and Jack Giddings. It was a potent offense, but Doane pressed 7-6 at the half. But experience showed in the final half and Doane fell, 24-12. There was hope in the Tiger camp, as freshman McIntyre looked like the runner to compliment Discoe’s passing. Scheet and Cooley Smith were line standouts. The improving Bengals brought back a 13-13 tie from Dakota Wesleyan next. They led 13-7 until a long pass brought a score in the final two minutes. Don Dakan was credited for blocking their conversion attempt. Doane’s points came on a Discoe-Hood pass and a 66-yard jaunt by McIntyre. Vic Schwart converted. Dakan and Ed Gad played well in the line. Stalinsky and Rohrig headed a strong Wesleyan offense that fall, and Doane felt fortunate that they could hold and Fred Hutchinson played well in the line, but Doane’s offense was no match for the Plainsmen.

1965 Papik had three quarterback candidates in 1965: Dave Hayman, Chuck Hall and Bill Stephenson. They all tried their hand in the opening 32-0 loss at Yankton. Very little went well right as fumbles and mistakes put them 25 points down at the half. Fred Hutchinson went both ways and teamed with Greg Alcorn to lift the Doane defense. Chuck Hall called the signals in the 23-13 surprise of Tarkio. Hinkle and Tesar did most of the work on the first drive that Hall climaxed with a sneak. Tarkio caught the Doane secondary asleep with an 80-yard pass but hard running by Larry Mollring and Stan Mullin put Doane ahead. Fred Hayeks booted a field goal. They lost by a field goal at Hastings the next week. A pass interference call on the 13 set the Broncos up for a Benny Congrove kick that yielded a 3-0 Hastings win. The Bengal defense was taking hold with Hutchinson getting more than his share of tackles. Costly Mistakes A speed Dakota Wesleyan club ran up 20 points in the third period to notch a 33-13 win here. But fumbles and pass interceptions gave the ball away too often for Doane to mount a sustained attack. Stephenson, Jim Vopat, Dennis Ryba and Mullen combined for one successful drive. It was another slam-bang game at Wesleyan that year. Passes by Lebsack and runs by Muelhausen and Rohrig were ultimately too much and Wesleyan stayed undefeated, 13-0. A drive spearheaded by Ken McCumber, Mullin, Vopat and Dave Dunham died on the seven. Three first half fumbles were too much to overcome the next week at Peru. The first one resulted in a Carl Satterfield score but the Doane defense was stubborn, holding the Bobcats to a 6-0 halftime lead. Then Stephenson and

HISTORY

Third Win They went to Lamoni, Iowa, the following week and returned with a 25-9 win over Graceland. Nieveen had 113 yards in 21 carries to lead Doane. Dennis Darnell scored early and then a Discoe-Nieveen pass clicked to bring the Tigers their third win of 1963.

Doane’s scored then went to 2-5-1 as Concordia measured them 26-6. Bob Voelker was the headliner on that seasoned Bulldog club.

2008 REVIEW

It was an upset the next week as Peru fell to Doane, 19-7. The Tigers trailed 0-7 at the half at the Oak Bowl. In the third quarter, Papik called a pass from punt formation; the result was a long Discoe-Hood pass and the score was tied.

That adventure wound up a 3-6 year, with Gary Scheet winning a guard spot on the all-conference team.

THE TIGERS

Fall to Wesleyan Wesleyan vanquished the Tigers 13-0 that year as Bill Rohrig, Dave Newlon and Mike Slatinsky showed the way. They combined on a long drive for the first touchdown and a pass interception accounted for the other. Doane had to rely on an aerial game because there was no yardage to be made through the Plainsman line. A total of 180 yards were stepped off during this renewal of the traditional rivalry.

Homecoming Victory Peru was here for Homecoming and it was scoreless at the half. Then a Doane drive was halted on the four, but a Peru offside gave them a break. On fourth down, McIntyre shot over and Schwartz converted. Hinkle scored on a 30-yard run, Murphy iced the 21-7 victory with a final touchdown.

Again Chardon was a victim, this time 20-14 here. A Discoe-Nieveen 45-yard pass put the Tigers ahead 13-7 at the half, but the Eagles went ahead 14-13 in the second half. It began to rain and things looked bad for Doane’s aerial game.

The last game of the season was at Colorado College, which featured “Sudden Death” Sabol. It was Doane’s only brush with the two-point conversion rule and the Tigers used it. The Colorado Tigers won it 15-8; Doane’s score came on a Discoe plunge and two points on his pass to Hoppe. The Fearless Tot from Possom Trot had a field goal.

Timeline (1965-1966) Dick Katzmann combined on two long passes, the second one bringing six points. Hayeks’ toe made it 7-6 Doane. But then a combination of things sent the Tigers down the drain, again. Thirty yards in penalties forced a punt, and it was blocked. Peru’s Bernie Brown grabbed it and lumbered 30 yards for their go-ahead counter. Later Doane gambled on fourth down and failed, setting up a short Bobcat rush that made the final score read 20-7. Concordia was here for Homecoming and snatched a 14-0 victory. Doane Tiger early offenses ran out of gas and it was scoreless at the half in spite of good running by Vopat, Mullin, Dunham and Paul Broussard. The heavy Bulldogs wore down the Tiger resistance and a Wayne Gray-Jim Young pass, covering 80 yards, brought a touchdown. Vopat stymied another with a goal line interception. Doane’s offense lacked the “big play” that would keep them in the game.

THE TIGERS

Skydivers lit on Simon Field at halftime, bring the word of the Homecoming Duke and Duchess. Streak Begins But the Bengals turned the corner; without fanfare they started on a winning streak that would become the longest in school history. Number one came at Colorado College and the day belonged to underclassmen.

HISTORY

2008 REVIEW

A Hayman-Rick Bush pass brought Doane up to a 7-7 tie. Then Stephenson threw to Katzmann for a 45-yard touchdown strike. Larry Mollring jumped on a loose ball down deep and on fourth down Hayeks arched a field goal from the 31 and Doane lead 17-7. Colorado College scored after an interception to put the pressure on, but the Tigers responded with a 62-yard punch. Broussard sped the final 32 yards to sew up the 24-14 win. Mullen accounted for 97 yards that day with Dakan the defensive standout. They pushed over three touchdowns in the last period at Graceland for a 34-14 conquest. They fell behind 14-7 and then freshman Jim Welti evened it with a scoring pass from Stephenson. Another pass, to Katzmann, brought the goahead score and the rest came easier. Willie Martin galloped 21 yard and Larry Mollring rolled 69 yards for the final touchdowns of 1965. Two defensemen accounted for the final extra point when Hoppe passed to Lockhart. Greg Alcorn and Fred Hutchinson were cocaptains for the 1966 season and the defense appeared to be in good shape. But the quarterback job was still up for grabs as Papik looked over five candidates in pre-season drills. Chuck Hall and Larry Green alternated in the opener

DOANETIGERS

at Colorado College. The hosts used the single wing to score first but a Broussard plunge brought Doane even. Green passed to Dunham for another score but the Tigers found themselves down 14-13 with a couple of minutes left and 65 yards from pay dirt. Green had charge of the club and on the thirty he whipped a pass to Katzmann. A defender deflected it and the alert Welti grabbed it and raced in for the score. The unplanned play brought a 20-14 Doane victory. Dave Dunham rushed for 83 yards in the opener. It was a night for reserves at Tarkio the next week as the club grounded out 496 yards. The defense held the Owls to -30 on the ground. Two Vopat touchdowns made it 14-0 and Doane wont it 26-0. Roger Booth was the leading rusher but injuries to Vopat and Dunham sidelined them. Hastings was the opposition for the home opener and Doane won it 16-7 as Green guided the team to 322 yards. Chuck Hall was shifted to halfback to team with Booth and Mollring. A Green-Welti aerial brought the first score and Booth rushed for another after a Larry Hoppel interception. A Peterson-Hockersmith pass made it 14-7 but Hayeks’ field goal gave Doane breathing room. Grudge Match The Wesleyan game was again a grudge match; the pilfering of the Merrill bell gave the Tigers an extra incentive. The game, played in a cold rain in Lincoln, hinged on one play. In a third and ten situation, Green went to the air. His pass to Gary Thompson bounced in the air and Katzmann picked it off and sloshed 30 yards for the only score of the night. The Doane offense generated 277 yards that night, but the defense was called on time and again to halt the Plainsman ground attack. Alcorn snared an interception on the 25 to halt one determined Wesleyan drive. He shared defensive honors with John Lothrop while tackle Fred Davis again opened holes on offense. They won their fifth game in a row in 1966 with a Homecoming romp of 27-6 over St. Mary of the Plains. Vopat accounted for 80 of Doane’s 426 yards that day. The versatile offense began rolling when Dennis Ferry dropped on a fumble and freshman Tom Randick plunged for the first score. Defense Shines The Peru game shaped up as a close contest, but the Tigers defense seemed to capitalize on every Bobcat mistake. It was 7-7 when Lothrop recovered a fumble on the 17; on first down Green whipped a pass to Welti and it was 14-7. The final period was a nightmare for the visitors. Doane owned a 21-7 lead but they run in

27 points in the final 15 minutes. Al Zimmerman had two interceptions and Ferry one, and all three were converted into Tiger scores. It was a resounding 48-7 score when the shouting was over. Fans began to believe that this team was for real now that they had won their first six games. They were confident that Concordia would be number seven. Concordia Battle But the Bulldogs didn’t know they were suppose to lose and they goaded the Tigers into their finest exhibition of the year. They came ever so close to having their streak snapped without ceremony. Concordia simply outplayed them the first half as Ed Clatanoff and Dick Grauer led their team to a 13-0 halftime margin. Only then did the Tiger offense return to its old form. Green passes to Katzmann and Vopat brought them up to a 13-13 tie with ten minute left to play. Just when Doane seemed to have the momentum, Concordia turned to a ground attack that ate up the clock along with the yardage. Clatanoff went over with 1:18 left to play and their conversion made it 20-13. The Tigers reached back for a superb effort in that final minute. Green threw five straight sideline strikes as they raced the clock. With 33 seconds left, Vopat took one and other another ten seconds elapsed as Katzmann reached deep in Bulldog territory. With a scant 12 seconds left, Green rolled out and scooted in for the touchdown. Hayeks coolly converted to tie it. Doane went for an onside kick and it worked but Green’s final two aerials were incomplete. Compressed into that final minute, the Tigers showed how fine a team they could be. The tie marred their record, but they were more than willing to accept it. Graceland proved much easier, 54-7, here on Veterans Day. They scored in the first three minutes when a Yellowjacket punt went up into the strong wind and was downed on the Graceland five. Booth bulldozed it over. Vopat added three touchdowns as the Tigers roared for 449 yards of offense that day. Honors Making the NAIA district team were Jim Welti, Fred Davis, Larry Green, John Lothrop, Fred Hutchinson, Al Zimmerman and Dick Katzmann. And, for the first time in Doane history, she had a Little All-America in junior Fred Davis. The 256-lb. tackle from Chicago was the wheelhorse in the offensive line that lead the way to a 7-0-1 year.

Things looked bright for Doane in the fall of 1967. Every one of his starters returned for the season and Al Papik’s chief worries were overconfidence by the team and injuries to key players.

The Tigers rolled to 530 yards of offense in the opener over Colorado College, 33-7. It was 20-0 at the half as freshman Mike Sallier delighted the crowd with a 56-yard scamper.

St. Mary of the Plains was the next victim, 69-25, in a game at Dodge City, Kansas. Peru went down 38-0 to a varied attack. Scoring came from a Fred Hayeks field goal, a pass to Thompson, a Green 61-yard rollout and counters from Randick and Dunham.

The whole issue hinged on a 39-yard field goal try by Fred Hayeks; it was just short and both clubs added the 14-14 tie to their perfect records. Tigers Green and Dakan were singled out for offensive and defensive honors.

The Concordia nemesis fell victim to three touchdowns in the first seven minutes; the final score was 34-7. Graceland fell 49-23 in the last regular game, as Larry Green led the 452yard offense with four touchdowns. Bowl Bid With the perfect season came a bid to play in the Mineral Water Bowl in Excelsior Springs, Mo., against undefeated William Jewell College of Liberty, Mo. A long first half found the Tigers back on their heels until Larry Channel intercepted and in three plays a Green-Welti pass gave Doane a 7-0 lead at the half. Early in the final half, Green combined with Vopat for another score and freshman Kevin Hunt converted the last of his many extra points of the year.

When the final game was tallied, the Doane team had gone 19 games without a loss in a streak extending back to 1965. The record for 1962-67 rose to 46 wins, 22 losses and four ties. In the history of the sport back to 1891, Doane teams were winners 301 times, losers 228 and played 47 ties. Although the name of the game hasn’t changed in 76 years, the sport has evolved from leather helmets and heavy sweaters to the wide-open variety fans see today. Doane students and Crete football followers have cheered their play for generations, from “Suey” Mains to “Pig” Spielman to Fred Hutchinson. The enjoyment of football games played by those orange and black clad Tigers have been a common bond between the college and town since the beginning, and perhaps the best is yet to come.

THE TIGERS

Sallier Scrambles Tarkio was the next victim, 57-0, as the 150-lb. Sallier ran for 199 yards. Then came the first away from home contest against old rival Hastings. A McAuliff-Congrove put the Broncs into an early lead on a wet field. Then Chuck Hall led the club to a quick touchdown as sophomore Tom Randick went over. Later scores came from Randick and Sallier as the Tigers continued their winning streak, 21-7.

Jewell came back fast with an 80-yard scoring pass and evened the score with an interception and a pass. Twice more Doane drove goal ward, but were foiled both times. The first drive was stopped by another interception but the large Doane following had hopes when Green and Vopat combined on a spectacular 50-yard pass in the last minute.

2009 OUTLOOK

For the opener at Simon Field, this was the offensive starting lineup: ends Welti and Katzmann, tackles Davis and Smith, guards Hutchinson and Southwick, center Schelstraete and backs Green, Vopat, Marty Jacobson and Mike Sallier. The latter two were the only newcomers to crack the starters. On defense were ends Lothrop and Channel, tackles Abbott and Barta, middle guard Dakan, linebackers Ryba, Hoppel, Koinzan and Alcorn and backs Zimmerman and Ferry.

The team was at its sharpest for Homecoming and Wesleyan. It was a gala day for Doane with Dr. Philip Heckman being inaugurated as president and an overflow crowd of 3,000 saw them rack the Plainsmen 49-7. Among their 322 aerial yards was an early 74-yard touchdown pass to Katzmann and a late Green-Vopat bomb that carried 60 yards in the air.

Timeline (1967-1979)

The Next 40 Years Provide Plenty Of Entertainment (follow-up to 1967 article) Winning would continue in 1969 as the Tigers put together another perfect season as they went 8-0. Unfortunately, a post-season bid was not in the cards for the Tigers but that year’s senior class left Doane with a 33-0-2 record over four years.

Running back Mike Sallier had a banner year, setting a then-record 1,357 yards rushing for the season. He added 23 rushing touchdowns which is still a single-season record at Doane. Quarterback Larry Green set a record 1,592 passing yards and 22 touchdown passes. Jim Welti caught 36 of Green’s passes for 690 yards and 12 touchdowns, a single-season school record that still stands today.

Doane picked up a win to open the 1970 season over Yankton College but their run would end the next week when Concordia, the last team to defeat the Tigers in 1965, would snap the unbeaten streak at 38 games. The year also marked the first football season of a new conference, the Nebraska Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (NIAC). The season ended with a 6-4 mark and would be the final year for legendary coach Al Papik.

The season was capped with another appearance in the Mineral Water Bowl, this time facing off against Central Missouri State. CMSU battled hard and had hopes of pulling off the upset but Doane won 10-0 and extended their winning streak to 29 games.

New Era Ray Best was appointed the next coach for Doane in 1971. Undefeated hopes ran through the first seven games as the Tigers won six and tied one. However, William Penn shutout the Tigers and Dana won in the season finale and Doane finished the year 6-2-1. Best put another solid team on the field in 1972 and this one would run the tables during the regular season. The Tigers went a perfect 10-0

Doane ran their unbeaten streak in NIAC play to 10 games after winning the conference title with a 4-0-1 mark. The only blemish was a 0-0 tie against Wesleyan. The Tigers lost nonconference contests to Yankton and Missouri Western to finish the year 7-2-1. After a 0-2 start, Doane won six straight games before falling in the season finale to Peru State. The team finished with a 6-3 record. Coach Best wrapped up his Doane coaching career in 1975 as the team went 6-4-1 and 3-1-1 in the NIAC. Best posted a 35-12-3 overall mark as the Tiger coach and 20-3-2 in NIAC play while earning conference coach-of-the-year honors three times. Joe Glenn took the reigns in 1976 and coached the Tigers until 1979. Over his four years, Doane never finished more than a game over .500 but he would go on to have a successful coaching career that all started with coaching the Tigers.

HISTORY

The Tiger defense in 1968 pitched three shutouts and held opponents to 64 points all season long, an average of 6.4 points per game. With the combination of the potent offense, Doane outscored their opponents by a mere 42.2 points per game.

and earned the school’s first-ever NAIA playoff berth. The Tigers fell to Missouri Southern in the semifinals, 24-6.

2008 REVIEW

Arguably the best football team in Doane history saw the field in 1968. A potent offense and stifling defense were in place for Papik. His offense led the nation with more than 48 points per game while the defense ranked fourth overall.

Timeline (1980-2007) Doane grad Nathan Hinkel took over for one year and his team posted a 4-6 mark in 1980. Brian Naber came in for the next three years and his first season was not a good one. The Tigers went 2-7 but both wins came in conference play and included a 13-7 victory over Wesleyan. Doane rebounded in 1982 to post a winning mark at 7-4. Rick Schnacker took over the quarterback duties for the next three years and he would find a running back in 1983 who would eventually become Doane’s first 1,000-yard running back since Kendall Hoggins in 1979. Bob Stitt rushed for 1,187 yards in 1985. Playoff Runs Fran Schwenk moved into the coach position in 1984. In his first nine seasons the Tigers hovered around .500 each season but the 1990 recruit class would eventually pay off dividends in 1993. Doane had once again put together a combination of great offense and defense. Doane outscored their opponents by an average of 29 points per game and put together a 9-0 regular season mark. The Tigers qualified for the NAIA playoffs for the second time after finished No. 2 in the NAIA in 1993. In the first round, Doane defeated Bethany College 17-10 in a hotly contested match-up. Baker College caught the Tigers the next week, ending Doane’s season at 10-1. Offensive lineman Matt Franzen and linebacker Mark Brahmer earned NAIA First Team All-American honors. Defensive back Preston Renshaw earned Second Team honors. With the offensive outburst, Brad McClatchey broke nearly every passing record at Doane. He threw for a single-game record 436 yards against Peru with five touchdowns, second most at Doane. For the season, he set a record with 2,863 yards and 29 touchdowns. McClatchey set the career mark with 6,683 yards and finished three touchdown passes shy of Larry Green’s mark of 62. The next three years would see a similarity to that of 1990. A strong recruit class was brought in for the fall of 1994 and when those freshmen became seniors, Doane would once again make another run. The 1997 squad posted a perfect regular season but Doane did not receive much respect nationally, finishing with a No. 7 rating. Chad Boyes earned First Team All-American honors on the offensive line while linebacker Dan Thurin and defensive back Shawn Kelly received Second Team honors. Troy Bothwell was the leading rusher, finishing with 1,522 yards and 16 touchdowns while quarterback Matt Reiling threw for 2,186 yards and 18 touchdowns. Doane defeated Southwestern College in the First Round of the NAIA Playoffs, 53-28. The Tigers went on the road the next week and

DOANETIGERS

manhandled Evangel, 59-20. The semifinals were next for the team as they traveled to Findlay College of Ohio. It appeared the Tigers may be set to advance to their first ever championship game as they led late in the fourth quarter. However, Findlay drove and scored a touchdown with just over a minute remaining to pull within one point. Lined up for the extra point to tie it, the Tigers were flagged for 12men on the field, putting the ball less than two yards from the end zone. Findlay went for the two-point conversion and was successful and pulled out a 26-25 win over Doane. Adams Goes For Doane Record The loss of several seniors led to a 5-4 mark in 1998 but the emergence of running back Raymonn Adams would highlight the Tigers for two more seasons. In 1999, the Tigers went 7-3 overall and lost to Azusa Pacific in the First Round of the NAIA Playoffs. Adams ran for 1,439 yards and 15 touchdowns. He added to his junior season with another strong year during his senior campaign. In 2000, the first year of the Great Plains Athletic Conference, Adams ran for 1,396 yards and 14 touchdowns. He set a single-game record 290 rushing yards against Hastings that year. The unfortunate side of the season was that it appeared Adams had broken Mike Sallier’s career rushing record but due to a miscalculation, he finished 22 yards shy. The record, on the other hand, was not as impressive as the Tigers finished 5-4. Doane would make a run at the playoffs the next two years, finishing in the NAIA Top 25 but missing out both years. In 2002, the Tigers finished 7-3 overall and ranked No. 19 in the NAIA. It would mark the Tigers last winning season to date. Husker Legend Arrives At Doane Schwenk left the Tigers in May of 2005 as the all-time wins leader after posting a 114-87-3 mark. The Tigers turned the reigns over to a former Nebraska standout and perhaps one of the best quarterbacks in NCAA history, Tommie Frazier. Frazier came in with hopes of turning things around at Doane however no one was able to foresee what would happen over the next two years. The Tiger participation numbers began to dwindle which made it difficult to build depth, an issue the Tigers dealt with back in the 1950s. That didn’t mean the players weren’t going to work hard and compete. Had the Tigers caught a few breaks early in the Frazier era, things may have been different. Doane lost the first game of 2005 to Dana, 3023, as the Tigers were stopped at the one-yard line late in the game. A lost to Midland the next week, 38-29, had fans wondering what the season would hold but the next week, at Northwestern, the Tigers upset the Red Raiders in a night game, 16-10. Doane lost six straight

games after the win, three coming by seven points or less. The season ended with a 28-13 victory over Briar Cliff University and Doane finished 2-8 overall. In 2006, the Tigers dropped the opener, 10-7 as a potential game-winning pass was dropped in the end zone late in the game. That seemed to set the tone for the Tigers as they lost their first seven games. In that mix was Northwestern’s return game from the previous year as this one was also a night game. The Red Raiders arrived late due to bus problems but it didn’t effect them as they jumped out to an early lead. Turnovers plagued the Tigers and the only thing to stop Northwestern’s attack was a lightning storm that came through the area. The game was haulted for several hours and resumed around 11:30 PM. Shortened quarters and running clock had the game moving along but it did not end until 1:17 AM with Northwestern walking away with a 56-0 win. The lone win of the season came at Concordia but that also looked like a loss for the Tigers initially. The Bulldogs led 24-0 after the first quarter but Doane responded with 35 unanswered points for the victory. All-American Takes Over At Alma Mater Matt Franzen took over in December 2006, replacing Frazier. Franzen, an All-American for the Tigers, came over from rival Hastings were he had been coaching for several years. Doane faced a loaded schedule in the first month of the season in 2007, falling to Morningside 73-0 and Wesleyan 46-7. The first win of the year came at home against Dakota Wesleyan, 33-31. Doane, held to seven points in two games, put up 20 points in the first quarter. Maurice Smith broke through for a 47-yard touchdown just 1:50 into the game. Following a DWU touchdown to tie the game, D’Artagnan Dai’Re took the kickoff 81 yards to give Doane the lead back. Smith added a 36-yard run for the third touchdown of the quarter for Doane. Doane trailed entering the final quarter until J.R. Artozqui found Landon Freitag in the end zone for the game winner. The Doane defense stepped up in the fourth quarter, hold DWU off the scoreboard. The Tigers finished 4-6 in 2007, going 4-1 at home that season. The home finale came against Midland and was a scoreless game through 59 minutes of play. The Tigers took possession after a missed field goal attempt by the Warriors and three rushing attempts and an incomplete pass left Doane with third and three with 10 seconds remaining. Bryan Dutcher escaped the Warrior rush and rolled out of the pocket and heaved a pass towards the end zone where Freitag out-jumped two defenders to pull in the touchdown reception with two second remaining and a 6-0 Tiger victory. D’Artagnan Dai’Re earned First Team All-American honors by the Victory Sports Network.

The 2008 season opened in the First Down Classic in Platte City, Mo. The game was tabbed by many as the one to break the 1967 Mineral Water Bowl tie between the Tigers and Cardinals of William Jewell. William Jewell was coached by Schwenk and the side-note was Doane’s alltime leader in wins coaching against one of his former players in Franzen.

Jaremy Puthoff took the kickoff 30 yards to the Doane 46 for the final possession of the game. Doane moved the ball down to the William Jewell 29 with two seconds remaining in the contest as Groteluschen would set up for a 47-yard field goal. Recalling the 1967 game, Doane missed a 39-yard field goal to defeat the Cardinals. This time around, the Tigers would not miss and they claimed a 15-12 victory.

The season had it’s share of disappointments as the Tigers lost late at Midland and could not escape Mitchell, S.D. with a win over Dakota Wesleyan. The season ended at home with Dana and the Tigers closed out with a 33-16 win. The story of the game was the performance of defensive lineman Seth Styskal. Styskal entered the game with eight sacks on the season and entered the final defensive possession of his career with two sacks on the day. He was 1.5 sacks shy of the school record and after a Viking first down, Styskal picked up a solo sack on Dana quarterback Jake Harral. On fourth down, the last play of they year for Styskal, he teamed up with Anthony Brock to pull down Harral and collected the half a sack he needed to enter the Tiger record books, finishing the year with 11.5 sacks. He led the conference in sacks and was named a First Team All-American by the Victory Sports Network.

The Cardinals led at halftime, 6-0, behind a pair of field goals. The Tigers took the lead behind a Dustin Groteluschen field goal and Tim Reed touchdown run that put Doane up 9-6. Groteluschen added a field goal with 1:43 remaining in the fourth quarter as Doane seemed to have picked up the needed insurance for a victory. However, the Cardinals had other ideas and on one play, a 77-yard pass from Drew Witman to Jarail Johnson pulled the game to a 12-12 tie

with the extra point coming after a celebration penalty was assessed against WJC. Doane linebacker Josh Warren busted up the middle of the line and leaped up to block the extra point attempt, leaving the game tied with 1:28 remaining.
