Matt Shepard Play-by-Play for Football

BASEBALL

The 2012 season marks the 12th year that veteran Detroit-area broadcaster Matt Shepard will call the action on the field for the EMU football broadcast team. Shepard first handled EMU football play-by-play duties during the 1999 season. He returned in 2002, and has held the post for nine straight seasons. A widely known football and basketball broadcaster, Shepard is the voice of University of Michigan men’s basketball as well as the morning drive host on WDFN (1130 AM) in Detroit. During his career, he has called NFL Europe games for FOX and, in 2005, Arena Football League games for Fox Sports Net and was the broadcast voice for a pair of WNBA Championships by the Detroit Shock. Shepard’s Fox Sports Detroit resume also includes extensive work as a reporter for the Detroit Lions, Detroit Pistons and Detroit Tigers, and play-by-play work for the Michigan High School Athletic Association football state finals and the CCHA hockey television package. In 2004, Shepard hosted the EMU Football Review with Head Coach Jeff Genyk on Comcast Local television.

The 2014 Eagles return..

18 letterwinners

2013 in Review: The 2013 baseball season ended in disappointment for Eastern Michigan, as the Green and White fell to Toledo, 6-5, on the last day of the regular season to miss out on the Mid-American Conference Tournament. EMU finished 2013 with a 26-28 record and a 12-15 mark in conference play. While the overall season did not work out as planned, Eastern did have some bright spots throughout the year. Then-senior Brian Hill nearly threw a no-hitter against in-state rival Western Michigan, April 19, 2013. The left-handed starter lost the no-hit bid with one out in the ninth, but still managed to keep the Broncos off the board for a complete game shutout. The Green and White picked up several victories over major opponents as well. EMU downed No. 26 Notre Dame, 12-6, May 1, 2013, the first win over a ranked opponent since the 2011 season when the Eagles defeated then-No. 4 Clemson. Eastern Michigan also swept the season series against fellow Washtenaw County foe Michigan, outscoring the Wolverines 28-14 in two games. The Eagles won the first contest, 15-10, at Oestrike Stadium, April 23, 2013, before capping off a game that was postponed, 13-4, in Ann Arbor, May 7, 2013. In the team’s final non-conference game of the season, Eastern rolled over Purdue, 20-2, picking up 24 hits along the way to give Head Coach Jay Alexander his 300th career victory, May 14, 2013. Team Captains: Eastern Michigan will be led by four captains heading into the 2014 campaign: Kristian Calibuso, Sam Ott, Adam Sonabend and Steve Weber. The four Eagles will be joined by Zane Birchler, Dae Bowden, Lee Longo and Paul Schaak to make up the 2014 senior class. Coaching Staff: Coach Alexander enters his sixth season at the helm of the EMU baseball program, sporting a career record of 301-296. The veteran coach will welcome two new coaches to the staff this season in Assistant Coach Eric Peterson and Volunteer Assistant Coach Jerry Brown. Coach Brown was most recently an assistant at Birmingham Groves High School, and the Detroit, Mich. native spent the past six summers coaching elite summer travel teams and training some of the area’s top talent. Brown will serve as the team’s first base coach while also working with the catchers. Peterson will guide the arms in his first season in Ypsilanti after spending last season as the director of baseball operations at the University of Kansas and as head coach of the Chillicothe Mudcats of the MINK Summer Collegiate League. The former Jayhawk’s coaching background also includes stops at Pittsburg State University, Fort Scott Community College and Niagara University. With Peterson as pitching coach, Associate

Head Coach Andrew Maki will return to a familiar role as the team’s hitting coach. Maki spent his first three seasons at EMU coaching the EMU bats before serving as pitching coach for the past two years. PITCHING: Coach Alexander and his staff already know who they will be putting out against No. 16 Clemson when the season begins this weekend, Feb. 14-16. Filling the holes left by 2013 seniors Brian Hill and Brian Valente, two first-year Eagles have emerged to take over the top two spots in the rotation. Starting the first game of the season will be junior college transfer Jake Andrews, standing at 6-feet 4-inches. Spending last season at Mesa Community College, the new Eagle struck out a team-best 78 batters in 79.1 innings while posting a 6-4 record with a 4.19 ERA. The other newcomer will be ‘true’ freshman Sterling Sharp, who will serve as the Saturday starter in the rotation. Sharp was brilliant throughout high school as Prep Baseball Report ranked him the seventh-best prospect in the state of Michigan. After recording a perfect 7-0 mark to go along with a 1.90 ERA his senior season, Sharp was drafted in the 30th round of the 2013 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft by the Atlanta Braves. However, he chose to pursue a college education and continue his career at Eastern Michigan. The final pitcher in the EMU rotation is no stranger to the role. Senior Paul Schaak will return to the mound in his final season as an Eagle, hoping to build off of the year he had in 2013. The lefty from Winkler, Manitoba made 11 starts to compile a 3-4 record and a 5.46 ERA. His most impressive statistic was his strikeout-to-walks ratio, sending down 47 batters while walking just 13. His veteran status should provide support to the younger arms in the rotation. Coming out of the bullpen, EMU will likely rely on returners Devon Bronson and Kristian Calibuso with junior college transfer Charlie Land also looking to play a key role. Bronson made 15 appearances as a freshman, not allowing a run in eight of those opportunities. Meanwhile, Calibuso bounced back from Tommy John surgery to post the lowest ERA on the team in 2013. The team captain boasted a 3.42 ERA in 16 relief appearances. The Brandon Fla. native will look to serve as the Eagles’ closer for the 2014 season. Finally, Land joins Andrews, his Mesa C.C. teammate, at EMU. He spent two seasons at the community college, racking up 31 saves that included a school record 19 in 2013.

starting position players 2

Around the Horn: In the EMU infield, the Eagles will be led by senior Lee Longo, who will be making the transition to the position after earning All-Mid-American Conference First Team accolades as the designated hitter a season ago. Longo batted .283 as a starter in all 54 games. He paced the Eagles with seven home runs while knocking in a team-best 44 RBI. Despite Longo making the change in the field, he will most likely remain in the clean-up spot in the batting order. Longo's backup will be Mitchell McGeein, who led the Green and White in starts at first during the 2013 campaign. After a successful freshman campaign, Nick Rotola returns as the Eagles' starting second baseman. Starting 31 games, the sophomore hit at a .287 clip while only committing six errors in the field for a .957 fielding percentage. Last season, Rotola split the starting duties with fellow sophomore Marquise Gill, who appeared in 47 games and scored 21 runs to go with his .255 batting average. Junior John Rubino is nearly a lock as the starting shortstop. In 2013, the Scottsdale, Ariz. native started all 54 games, including 51 at shortstop. Along with batting .288, fourth-best on the team, Rubino was a threat on the base paths with 11 steals. Last year, he was named MAC West Player of the Week, April 21, 2013, hitting .429 (6-for-14) with two doubles and three RBI during that weekly stretch. While the right side of the infield and shortstop are occupied by veteran Eagles, third base will be played by newcomer Ty Gilmore. The junior college transfer has turned the heads of coaches and teammates throughout the offseason with his play in the field and bat at the plate. At Central Arizona, Gilmore hit .321 on his way to all-region and all-conference first team honors. He will replace 2013 senior Jamie Simpson at the hot corner.

2013 All-MAC selections

Eagles in batting average (.327), runs (47), hits (69), doubles (18), RBI (44) and slugging percentage (.469). His doubles tied for second in the MAC last season while he was fourth in the conference in runs scored. Despite making 14 starts in left field and only two starts in center field, expect sophomore Austin Wilson to primarily be in center, replacing Daniel Russell, who was lost to graduation. The Sunshine State native only played in 31 contests, but he made a spark in the lineup when he was at the plate, hitting at a .326 clip. As a freshman, Wilson batted a team-best .358 against right-handed pitching and did not commit an error in 45 chances. The final outfield spot in left field will most likely be occupied by redshirt-senior Dae Bowden to start the season. In the 30 starts he made throughout 2013, the Windy City native played left field, leading the team in starts at that position. When he was in the lineup last season, Bowden showed off his speed with four triples and five steals. Another Eagle that could start in left field is Adam Dennison who was EMU's back-up catcher in 2012 before sitting out last season due to injury. While Eastern fans could see him out in left or behind the plate, the redshirtjunior will likely replace Longo as the starting designated hitter.

2014 Schedule: Eastern Michigan starts the 2014 campaign with 16 games away from the friendly confines of Oestrike Stadium. After the season-opening series at No. 16 Clemson, Feb. 14-16, the Eagles travel to Tennessee-Martin, Austin Peay, Kentucky, Morehead State and Evansville. Exactly one month after lifting the lid on the season at Clemson, EMU begins its home slate, March 14, with a three-game set against the Norse of Northern Kentucky.

HEAD COACH

JAY ALEXANDER Sixth Season • Wayne State, 1996 • 301-296 Career Record The 2014 season will mark the sixth season for Jay Alexander as Eastern Michigan University’s head baseball coach. Prior to joining the program in 2008, Alexander spent six seasons as the head baseball coach at Wayne State University. The 41-year-old Alexander is the first African-American head coach in EMU baseball history. In his fifth season at the helm of the program, Alexander led the team to a 26-28 record, just missing out on a return to the Mid-American Conference Tournament. While the end to the season was disappointing for the Eagles, they did help their coach record a milestone victory with a 20-2 thumping over Purdue University, May 14, 2013. The victory over the Boilermakers was the 300th career win for Alexander, as his team set season-highs with 20 runs and 24 hits. The last time EMU scored at least 20-or-more runs in a contest was March 20, 2010, when the Green and White drove in 23 during a victory over West Virginia University. Meanwhile, the 24 base hits were the most since EMU pounded out 27 hits in a 27-7 victory over Bowling Green State University, April 8, 2009. Another highlight to the season was the Eagles taking down No. 26-ranked Notre Dame, May 1. Alexander’s ballclub picked up its first win over a ranked opponent for the first time since Feb. 18, 2011, when the Eagles beat the No. 4 ranked Clemson Tigers, 7-6. Alexander’s 2012 group continued a streak of seven consecutive seasons of qualifying for the MAC Tournament with a 14-13 record in league play. Led by 33rd-round draft pick Steve Weber, Alexander’s pitching staff recorded a school-record 389 strikeouts to surpass the 2010 team’s mark of 387. Weber, who was drafted with the 1007th pick of the MLB First-Year Player Draft, became the fourth player taken in the draft during Alexander’s tenure. The junior righty tossed three complete games on the season including a 10inning gem in the MAC Tournament against Miami. In addition, Matt Hitt and Ben Magsig also signed professional contracts with the Arizona Centennials and the London Rippers, respectively. Several of Alexander’s players were recognized for their combined academic and athletic achievements in 2012 as Brent Ohrman and Bo Kinder were each selected first-team Capital One Academic All-District. Ohrman and Kinder also joined Weber, Sam Ott and Tucker Rubino on the Academic All-MAC team to tie EMU with the University of Toledo for most representatives of any school on that list. In 2011, Alexander’s squad compiled a 37-22 record, the most victories in a single season since the 1982 team won 39. EMU posted its best start to a season (30-15) since 1976, a year in which the team advanced to the College World Series. The Eagles also tied for the longest winning streak in the nation with 11 consecutive victories from April 12-May 4. In non-conference action, the Eagles topped fourth-ranked Clemson, West Virginia, Cleveland State, Michigan Sate., and won series against Kansas, Tennessee Tech, Presbyterian College, Austin Peay, Michigan, and Louisville. Alexander won his 250th-career game as a head coach when the Eagles topped Northern Illinois, 4-2, in the MAC Tournament. In addition, EMU led the MAC in batting average and several other offensive categories. Under Alexander, EMU baseball led all MAC schools by placing four student-athletes on the Academic All-MAC squad: Ken Battiston, Corey Chaffins, Zack Leonard and Brent Ohrman. Chaffins surpassed Anthony Tomey (249) for third all-time in career strikeouts with 256. Leonard’s stellar career had him finishing for first all-time in EMU history with 315 career hits, 63 doubles and 927 at-bats. Leonard and Robert Wendzicki earned 2011 Mid-American Conference All-Tournament accolades for their stellar performances in the MAC Tournament. Pitchers Tim Combs and Wendzicki each signed professional contracts. Combs signed with the Gateway Grizzlies and Wendzicki with the Lake Erie Crushers of the Frontier League. In 2010, Alexander led the Eagles to two more wins than the previous year, with the team again earning the No. 7 seed in the MAC Tournament, where they finished with a 2-2 mark. Overall, Alexander had one first-team All-MAC selection in Kendall Lewis, who also earned four national player of the week awards during the regular season. As a whole, the 2010 Eastern Michigan pitching staff recorded 387 strikeouts – the most by any team in school history. The previous record was held by the 1975 EMU baseball team that finished fifth at the College World Series. Alexander’s Eagles also got it done in the classroom, with junior Corey Chaffins earning ESPN The Magazine second-team All-District IV honors. In his first season at EMU, Alexander led the Eagles to a third-place finish in the Mid-American Conference West Division, earning a No. 7 seed in the MAC Tournament. Alexander led the Eagles to a 5-4 record against the Big Ten Conference, including wins over regionally bound Ohio State and Indiana, as well as a three wins over in-state rivals Michigan and Michigan State. As a team, the 2009 Eagles hit 100 home runs – the most

by any EMU team in a single season in school history. Alexander had three players earn All-MAC honors in his first year, one player earn National Player of the Week honors, and one player earn Academic All-American accolades. Alexander also had two players drafted in his first season, as junior Jim Gulliver was picked in the 20th round by the Detroit Tigers, while senior Kyle Rhoad was drafted by the Texas Rangers in the 33rd round. Alexander’s Eagles also performed well in the classroom, as EMU placed a league best four players on the 2009 Academic All-MAC squad. The eighth head coach in Wayne State history, Alexander saw his 2008 squad turn in one of the most memorable years in school history. The Warriors recorded a school-record 34 wins, against just 19 losses, won the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) regular-season and made it all the way to the championship game of the NCAA Division II Regional Tournament. In addition, pitcher Anthony Bass and utility player Adam Kaminski were the first WSU players to earn All-American honors since the 1978 season. During his six-year tenure, Alexander’s Wayne State teams averaged 27 wins a season. He was named GLIAC Coach of the Year twice, in both 2005 and 2008 and the Warriors qualified for the NCAA Division II Regional Championship in both of those seasons. He led the 2005 Warriors to the GLIAC regularseason title and the No. 1 seed in the league tournament. That 2005 squad recorded 32 regular-season victories to earn its first-ever trip to the NCAA Regional Championship. In addition, shortstop Frank Jeney was named GLIAC Player of the Year. In all, Alexander coached 12 All-Region players, 37 All-GLIAC selections and has landed 71 on the GLIAC All-Academic squad. Under Alexander, Wayne State also had its first player sign a major league contract since 1999 when Randy Surratt joined the Chicago White Sox organization after WSU’s 2003 season. Then in 2005, Steve Squires became the first Wayne State player to be selected in the Major League draft when the White Sox picked him in the 49th round. In 2008, Anthony Bass was selected by the San Diego Padres in the fifth round (165th pick overall). A native of Detroit, Alexander was a standout shortstop and centerfielder at Wayne State from 1993-96. He led the Warriors in hits, runs scored, stolen bases and batting average while a senior and was nationally ranked in all of those categories. He was a first-team All-GLIAC and All-Regional player that season. Alexander stayed at Wayne State to serve as a baseball assistant under legendary head coach Rod George for five seasons before becoming the head coach in December 2002 when George passed away. Alexander, his wife, Kia, two-year-old old daughter, Ryleigh, and newborn son, Carter, reside in Redford, Mich.

The 2013 EMU pitching staff also allowed the fewest walks in the Mid-American Conference. Maki took over as pitching coach in 2012 and helped the staff toss 389 strikeouts; the most in a single season in EMU history. Starting pitcher Steve Weber was drafted in the 33rd round (1007th) overall by the Miami Marlins after throwing three complete games (two shutouts) on the season including a 10-inning gem in the MAC Tournament against Miami. Maki also had three pitchers, Weber, Ryan Lavoie and Joe Battistelli, earn MAC West Pitcher of the Week nominations with Weber receiving the award twice. The 2011 Eagles found success at the plate under Maki’s guidance, leading the conference in six categories: batting average (.300), hits (571), on base percentage (.385), runs (353), RBI (321), doubles (120) and runs per game (6.5).

In 2010, Maki’s first recruiting class proved to make solid contributions in their first year at EMU, including Ben Magsig, who led the Eagles in batting average and on-base percentage. Bo Kinder also proved to be one of the team’s top players in his first season at EMU coming from Kaskaskia C.C., as he finished the 2010 season second on the team in home runs and slugging percentage. As a team, the Eagles hit 50 home runs in 2010, seven more than their opponents. The freshmen pitchers brought in by Maki and the EMU staff also had an outstanding year, as they combined for eight total wins and 10 saves. In his first season, Steve Weber garnered MAC West Pitcher of the Week honors after a 10-strikeout performance at Cleveland State, March 24. In his first season as the hitting coach at EMU, Maki helped the Eagles hit 100 home runs as a team – the most by any EMU team in a single season in school history. Under Maki’s tutelage, the 2009 Eagles finished the season averaging nearly seven runs per-game. In 15 games, EMU scored 10 or more runs, including a 27-run performance against Bowling Green, April 8, the most runs any EMU baseball team has ever scored against a Division I opponent. Prior to joining the Eagles staff in 2009, Andrew Maki spent three years as the recruiting coordinator for Wayne State University and two years as hitting coach. In 2008, WSU batted .311 with a .397 on base percentage. He helped the 2007 Warriors raise their team batting average 36 points to .325, with an on base percentage of .414.

As a player, Maki earned all-league honors as a first baseman and pitcher for Henry Ford C.C. and finished his collegiate playing career at Grand Valley State University in 1999 and 2000. He was a member of the 1999 Great Lakes Collegiate League Champion Michigan Monarchs that advanced to the World Championships in Australia.

Providing leadership in education and diversity, the Mid-American Conference moves

into its 67th year of service to the student-athlete. Since its inception in 1946, the Mid-American Conference has progressively grown and developed into one of the most aggressive Division I conferences in the country. One of only ten football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) conferences, the MAC named Dr. Jon A. Steinbrecher as its eighth commissioner in March of 2009. The league has grown its commitment to championships by expanding to seven its number of neutral site post season events – football (Ford Field, Detroit), volleyball (SPIRE Academy, Geneva, Ohio), men’s and women’s basketball (Quicken Loans Arena, Cleveland), softball (Firestone Stadium, Akron) and baseball (All Pro Freight Stadium, Avon, Ohio). In addition, the SPIRE facility will also serve as the site for the 2014 women’s swimming & diving championship and 2015 men’s swimming & diving championship. In 2012, the MAC set a conference record with seven teams receiving a bowl invitation, including the first ever BCS Bowl invitation with Northern Illinois playing in the Discover Orange Bowl on Jan. 1, following a thrilling 44-37 double overtime win over Kent State in the 2012 Marathon MAC Football Championship game. The seven MAC programs that were extended bowl invitations included: Toledo (Famous Idaho Potato Bowl); Ball State (Beef ‘O’ Brady’s Bowl St. Petersburg); Central Michigan (Little Caesars Pizza Bowl); Bowling Green (Military Bowl); Ohio (Advocare V100 Independence Bowl); Northern Illinois (Discover Orange Bowl) and Kent State (GoDaddy.com Bowl). The 2012 season witnessed four football programs ranked in the top 25 of national polls – Northern Illinois, Kent State, Toledo and Ohio—as the BCS Standings had two MAC programs in the Top 25 at the end of the regular season with No. 15 Northern Illinois and No. 25 Kent State. The MAC also set a conference record for the most wins against FBS opponents with 16 victories. MAC programs were 4-4 against the Big East Conference, including wins over Rutgers, Cincinnati, UConn and South Florida, and three wins against opponents from the Big Ten Conference, including wins over Penn State, Iowa and Indiana. The dramatic 2012 football season was capped as Central Michigan offensive tackle Eric Fisher was selected as the first overall selection by the Kansas City Chiefs in the 2013 NFL Draft, becoming the first football player from the MAC with such an honor. For the first time in league history, the MAC will have seven bowl relationships--three primary and four secondary. The three primary agreements are with the Little Caesar’s Pizza Bowl (Detroit, Mich.), GoDaddy Bowl (Mobile, Ala.) and Famous Idaho Potato Bowl (Boise, Ida.). In addition, the MAC has secured secondary agreements with the BBVA Compass Bowl, the Gildan New Mexico Bowl, the Beef O’Brady’s St. Petersburg Bowl and the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl. In its partnership with ESPN, the MAC is in the fifth year of its eight-year rights agreement (through 2016-2017 academic years) for football, as well as men’s and women’s basketball. The deal is the most extensive in the 67-year history of the conference. The agreement calls for a minimum of 25 events annually to be produced and aired on an ESPN platform including the men’s and women’s basketball championships, a regularseason MAC presence on ESPN, the Marathon MAC Football Championship Game and a minimum of 11 regular-season football games. In men’s basketball, the MAC witnessed Akron reach the FirstEnergy MAC Men’s Basketball Tournament for the seventh consecutive season, as the Zips won their third title in five years. Also, Ohio University earned an invitation to the NIT, while Western Michigan reached the College Basketball Invitational Final Four after wins over North Dakota State and Wyoming. Kent State received an invitation to the CollegeInsider.com Tournament and defeated Fairfield in the opening round. Akron center Zeke Marshall and Ohio point guard D.J. Cooper were selected to play in the 2013 Reese’s Division I College All-Star Game, as Cooper garnered MVP game honors. During the 2012-13 academic year, the University of Akron men’s soccer team won its ninth MAC championship and fifth in the last six years, as the Zips advanced to their fifth consecutive NCAA Round of 16 appearance after defeating Michigan. Akron witnessed senior midfielder Scott Caldwell named as the All-America Scholar Athlete of the Year by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) and a semifinalist for the Hermann Trophy.

1970 NAIA National Champions The 1970 Eastern Michigan University baseball team did something only a select few teams have done in the University’s 160 year history, as the Hurons won five out of six games to capture the 1970 National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics National Championship.

The Hurons tasted defeat for the first time in the NAIA Championship, as the team couldn’t manage to capitalize on a total of eight NE Louisiana errors. Peck went 2-for-5 but the Hurons lost their first game, 7-6, on a three-run Rob Smith home run in the sixth inning.

After defeating Lewis College in the NAIA Regionals, the Hurons advanced to the NAIA National Championship, where they took on Emporia State University in the opening round. The team was tested throughout the game, but going into the bottom of the eighth tied at 1-1, EMU first baseman Rocky Roe hit a sacrifice fly to score Terry Trott and give the Hurons a 2-1 lead, one they would not relinquish.

But in one final meeting with NE Louisiana for all the marbles, the Hurons did not disappoint. Pitchers Roger Coryell and Woody Mills pitched nine shutout innings and Dave Smigielski provided all the offense the team would need, as his two-out RBI single in the ninth plated Roe to give Eastern Michigan the victory and the 1970 NAIA National title. It was the fouth time in the week-long, double elimination tournament that the Hurons had won a game in their final at-bat.

In the second round, the Hurons wasted no time getting on the board, as a four-run second inning, which included a three-run triple by third baseman Jeff Peck, helped EMU advance with a 4-2 win over New Haven. In the third round, the Hurons had their first of three meetings with Northeast Louisiana. Facing a 4-3 deficit going into the late stages of the contest, EMU put up one in the seventh and two more in the eighth to take a 6-4 lead. The Hurons closed the door on NE Louisiana in the ninth to claim the win, as Terry Trott finished 3-for-5 with two runs and five RBI, while Jeff Peck went 3-for-4 with two runs scored in the victory. The Hurons needed all nine innings to stay alive in the fourth round of the NAIA National Championship, as Roe singled home Peck and Dave Yeager in the top of the ninth to give EMU a 3-2 advantage. A solid relief effort by Jay Kuhnie helped EMU advance to the fifth round, where it met NE Louisiana for the second time.

Peck was named the Tournament MVP after setting a national tournament mark at the plate, where he went 13-for-23 (.565) with three RBI. Eastern Michigan shortstop Terry Collins was named the Outstanding Defensive Player of the Tournament, as the Hurons finished the season with a 41-11 mark. After the winning the title, Peck and Trott were selected as NAIA Topps All-Americans, and along with Tom Burkert, the three Hurons signed professional contracts. Burkert and Trott signed with the Cleveland Indians, while Peck inked a deal with the Philadelphia Phillies. The Hurons finished the season winning 11 out of their last 13 games, including five one-run victories. Head Coach Ron Oestrike was named the Coach of the Year by the 400 voting members of the NAIA Coaches Association. ROAD TO THE NATIONAL TITLE... Game One: Emporia State EMU

Our History

Founded in 1849, when the state of Michigan was just 12 years old, Michigan State Normal School was designated by the state legislature as the first institution to educate teachers to serve the public schools. The University thus began, somewhat humbly, as the sixth teacher education institution in the nation. A campus that today comprises more than 800 acres was once a four-acre plot with one building and two programs of study – a classical course and an English Course. The school’s name changed several times ­– to Michigan State Normal College in 1899; to Eastern Michigan College in 1956; and finally to Eastern Michigan University in 1959. During its first 100 years, the institution certified thousands of teachers and developed the broad-based curricula that ultimately prepared it for university status. Within that new university, three colleges emerged: Education, Arts and Sciences and the Graduate School. The University has since expanded three more times; adding the College of Business in 1964, the College of Health and Human Services in 1975 and the College of Technology in 1980. More recently Eastern Michigan has developed Extended Programs and numerous community-focused institutes. The University has enhanced its learning environment through structural initiatives during the past several years. Recent construction includes the Terrestrial and Aquatic Research Facility (1998), the Convocation Center (1998), the Bruce T. Halle Library (1998), the John W. Porter College of Education Building (1999), the Everett L. Marshall College of Health and Human Services Building (2000), the Village residence hall (2001), University House (2003), new Student Center (2006), and the new Science Complex (2010).

The City of Ypsilanti

Ypsilanti is a city in Washtenaw County with a population of 22,362. Originally a trading post established in 1809 by Gabriel Godfroy, a FrenchCanadian fur trader from Montreal, a permanent settlement was established on the east side of the Huron River in 1823 by Major Thomas Woodruff. It was incorporated into the Territory of Michigan as the village Woodruff’s Grove. A separate community a short distance away on the west side of the river was established in 1825 under the name “Ypsilanti”, after Demetrius Ypsilanti, a hero in the Greek War of Independence. Woodruff’s Grove changed its name to Ypsilanti in 1829, and the two communities eventually merged. Henry Ford and the automotive industry came to Ypsilanti in the 1930s and beautiful Ford Lake was created to generate hydroelectric power for the manufacturing plants. During World War II, Ypsilanti became home to the Willow Run Bomber Plant, a factory that would employ 100,000 workers.

President Susan W. Martin

Dr. Susan W. Martin EMU President

Entering her sixth year as the president of Eastern Michigan University, Dr. Susan W. Martin has made a significant impact on the campus in her time in Ypsilanti. Named the 22nd president of EMU May 14, 2008, she is the first female president in EMU’s 164-year history. Martin officially took office July 7, 2008.

Eastern has been a nationally recognized leader in tuition restraint. Over the past four years, Eastern’s average increase of 2.86 percent in tuition has been by far the lowest among the state’s 15 public universities. This includes the “0, 0, 0” tuition, room and board freeze of 2010-

34

2011, in which Eastern was one of a handful of universities around the nation to not increase fees. Today, students pay only $32 more per credit hour than four years ago. Additionally, Eastern completed its first comprehensive fundraising campaign a year ahead of schedule. “Invest. Inspire. The Campaign for Eastern Michigan” surpassed its $50 million goal in the summer of 2012 and reached $56 million. The highly successful campaign set the tone for future efforts to benefit Eastern students. “I am thrilled to be chosen for the honor of leading this great University, which has a strong history of excellent education and a bright future,” said Martin. During her inaugural address Martin set forth an ambitious vision for the university. The goals included building on the pillars of academic excellence, refreshing alumni relationships, comprehensive fundraising and earning the public’s trust. Prior to coming to EMU, Martin was the provost and vice-chancellor of academic affairs at the University of Michigan-Dearborn. The majority of Martin’s higher education career was at Grand Valley State Uni-

versity, where she taught and published as a professor of accounting and taxation. Martin served as director of the master of taxation program, director of international business programs, and chair of the accounting and taxation department. In June 2001, Martin joined the GVSU provost’s office and served in roles as assistant, associate, and executive associate vice president of academic affairs. One of her major duties in that office was to help manage the $154 million budget for the Academic Affairs Division. Before GVSU, Martin was deputy state treasurer for the Bureau of Local Government Services for Michigan from June 1981-June 1984. She also was the commissioner of revenue for the state of Michigan from 1985-1988. Martin received her doctoral degree in accounting from Michigan State University in 1988 and her master’s degree in accounting from MSU in 1976. She earned her bachelor’s degree from Central Michigan University in 1971. In 2009, Martin received the MSU Department of Accounting and Information Systems Alumna of the Year Award. Martin is a member of the board of directors of the Michigan Educational Trust as well as Ann Arbor SPARK, a non-profit organization that seeks to bring businesses to the Ann Arbor area. She is married to Dr. Larry Martin, professor of economics at Michigan State University, and has three children and three grandchildren.

EMU Identity Since the 1991 season, Eastern Michigan University athletic teams have gone by the nickname “Eagles.” The Eagles name was officially adopted on May 22, 1991, when the EMU Board of Regents voted to replace the existing Huron nickname and logo with the new one. EMU originally went by the nicknames “Normalites,”“Men from Ypsi”and various other titles through the years before “Hurons” was adopted in 1929. The “Hurons” first came into being as the result of a contest sponsored by the Men’s Union in 1929. On Oct. 31 of that year, a three-person committee, composed of Dr. Clyde Ford, Dr. Elmer Lyman and Professor Bert Peet, selected the name “Hurons” from the many entries in the contest. The name was submitted by two students, Gretchen Borst and George Hanner. Hanner was working at the Huron Hotel at the time of the contest and was no doubt as much influenced by his place of employment as by the Huron Indian tribe. The runner-up name in that contest was Pioneers. EMU began investigating the appropriateness of its Huron Indian logo after the Michigan Department of Civil Rights issued a report in October 1988 suggesting that all schools using such logos drop them. The report indicated that the use of Native American names, logos and mascots for athletic teams promoted racial stereotypes. At that time, four colleges, 62 high schools and 33 junior high/middle schools in Michigan used Indian logos or names. The EMU Board of Regents voted to replace the Huron name with Eagles, taken from three recommendations from a committee charged with supplying a new nickname. The other two final names submitted were Green Hornets and Express.

Student-Athlete Support Student-Athlete Support Services

Academic, personal and professional support are essential to college success. At EMU, Student-Athlete Support Services (SASS) helps student-athletes reach their full potential. Our philosophy is to offer an academic support program, integrated with the University, that will assist all student-athletes with their transition into college. This all-encompassing support continues throughout each student-athlete’s collegiate career, until the day he or she receives a diploma, lands a job or enters graduate school. Being proactive rather than reactive, our staff does not wait for an academic crisis to occur. We gather important background information and build an academic profile on each student-athlete, assessing his or her needs in advance. Services provided through SASS include the following: programs that focus on student-athletes’ special needs, monitoring academic performance, providing learning assistance, assisting with registration procedures, assisting in monitoring athletic eligibility, providing priority registration and making sure that athletes are advised about current NCAA, MAC and University rules and regulations. Freshmen and transfer student-athletes encounter a major transition when making the switch from high school or community college to a university. These students, while adjusting to their new routines, receive extra attention and support. College is not easy. But with hard work and dedication from both the student-athlete and the support staff, the student-athlete can have a successful college experience. The success of Eastern’s student-athletes hinges on their willingness to seek assistance from SASS as well as other University student services. SASS staff members continually refer student-athletes to the Admissions Office, Academic Advising Center, Career Services Center, Health Services, the Records Office, Financial Aid and The Holman Learning Center. Faculty members also provide assistance to student-athletes through advising in course selection and providing additional help with courses when requested.

Athletic Training and Sports Medicine

The Eastern Michigan University Sports Medicine Department has a long history and reputation for excellence in the health care of studentathletes and the education of athletic training students. Founding practitioners Gary Strickland, Ron Venis and Dr. Wally Roeser envisioned a goal of first-class prevention, management and rehabilitation of athletic injuries for all student-athletes. Although the department continues to grow, its primary mission remains the same. The student-athletes participating in intercollegiate athletics receive comprehensive health care from an expansive sports medicine team. The Eastern Michigan University Sports Medicine staff is led by Dr. Tara Master-Hunter, Dr. Zoe Foster, Dr. David Alvarez, Dr. George Pujalte, Dr. Wally Roeser, Dr. Bruce Miller, Dr. Don Wurtzel and head athletic trainer Steve Nordwall. Additionally, the staff consists of two primary care sports medicine fellows, three full-time staff athletic trainers, two full-time athletic training clinical educators, five graduate assistant athletic trainers and the team dentist. Our sports medicine staff works in conjunction with various medical professionals within the community who provide nutritional, dental, vision and other specialized services for our student-athletes. At Eastern Michigan University, the philosophy of the Sports Medicine staff is two-fold: to provide a high standard of medical care through effective preventive and management programs, and to facilitate an effective post-injury rehabilitation process for a safe return to competition. In all cases, the ultimate well-being of each student-athlete is considered our number one priority, not only while they compete at Eastern Michigan University, but during their lifetime as well. The Sports Medicine staff operates out of three campus athletic training facilities in the Convocation Center, Bowen Field House and the Rynearson Stadium team building.

Sports Performance/Strength and Conditioning

Our Sports Performance Program applies a complete approach to scientifically and practically progress each individual athlete. Our purpose is to improve all components that will aid in achieving maximal athletic performance while reducing the occurrence of injury. We incorporate athletic based, free weight, multi-joint, and multi-directional movements which vary from a diverse collection of strength and conditioning disciplines to prepare each athlete for the general and specific demands of their sport. Standards that will be implemented at all times are: Integrity, Attention to Detail, Quality before Quantity, and Execution before Innovation. Assuming quality thought and effort have been put into a sports performance program, all else being equal, the program feels that these three components are usually separating an elite level program from the average. Incorporating Daily Competitions – The ability for athletes to compete in an every day setting is critical to the success of team and individual sports. Anything from team relay’s, to 1 on 1 tug of wars, to using a dumbbell weight heavier than the previous week. I simply make the statement to my teams, “WIN THE DAY.” Work harder – beat your last weeks sets/reps/weight/time, COMPETE! There is competitive nature in all mankind. Sometimes it takes a little extra effort on the coaching end to see it. Fill your team with competitors and your program will take care of itself. Physical and Mental Sport Transfer – Training to the specifics of the sport, and style that the head coaches are teaching is an essential way to succeed at any level. Find out what the sport coaches are looking to achieve and speak their same language. You are an addition to their staff, hop on board and cater your philosophy to their needs. Giving each athlete specific examples of on field/on court experiences where success can either be earned or an opportunity can be lost. Being able to make athlete’s understand the importance of mental toughness that is needed in the weight room and how it transfers over to their sport. The pain, the physical and mental struggles they endure in each training session is setting them up for success for their competitive season. Fight for every rep just as you would for any rebound, blocked shot, interception, or stolen base. Make references back to their closest contests that might have been decided by one play – (or one rep). Positive Influential Environment – Do athletes leave the weight room looking to return for more or dreading the next time they have to mope through one of the most silent hours of their day? Each session, from the minute the first athlete walks in, to the last grueling minute they are dragging out, fill the room with ENERGY!!! Push them through their toughest moments and coach every rep. Show each and every athlete that you care about their progress. Stay vocal, provide positive feedback as well as constructive criticism, play that latest hip-hop track and find a way to create a positive training environment.
