2009 MEDIA GUIDE It just seems right to those of us that love college football that as the fall semester begins so does football! We are excited to be playing our tenth season of football since starting our Division III program, and this promises to be a great year for the Tigers under Head Coach Mark Sartain. This media guide gives facts and figures about the men who play and coach, but we also hope that you’ll be able to see their hearts as they play the game. We hope you’ll notice their character as well as their competitive drive. And we hope that you know they are as committed to academic pursuits as they are to winning on the field. At East Texas Baptist University our student athletes are student athletes. These men are not playing for a scholarship, but for the love of the game. And, we play football because we believe it contributes to the educational mission of the University. These students are learning not just in the classrooms, but in team meetings, through diligent practice, by lifting weights and conditioning their bodies, in one-on-one conversations with coaches and fellow players, and on the gridiron. As a University, we’re also committed to the truth found in Scripture that reminds us, “physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come” 1 Timothy 4:3. This football team is being fit for success in this life and the life to come. That, to me, is a good reason to cheer them on. Dr. Samuel “Dub” Oliver President, East Texas Baptist University

EAST TEXAS BAPTIST UNIVERSITY

ETB

Academic instruction at East Texas Baptist University began in 1917 with the inaugural session of a two-year institution known as College of Marshall... The campaign to launch the college had begun in 1911 and was led by William Thomas Tardy, pastor of Marshall’s First Baptist Church. Tardy negotiated the purchase of 100 acres of the original K. M. Van Zandt family plantation for $25,000. Keeping 50 of the 100 acres on Van Zandt Hill in northwest Marshall, the college subdivided and sold the remaining property. Marshall’s citizens subscribed another $70,000, and the Baptist General Convention of Texas assumed control of the college, appropriating $40,000 for buildings and furnishings. The trustees applied for and received a charter from the State of Texas in 1912, and Thurman C. Gardner, an early day Baptist Training Union leader, became the first president in 1913. For the first building, Marshall Hall, contractors broke ground on July 5, 1915. Of neoclassical architecture and completed in 1916, Marshall Hall crowned the highest point in Harrison County. The robust building was a self-contained educational

facility with a ground floor gymnasium, main floor administrative offices, laboratories, and library, third floor classrooms, and a chapel/theatre on the top floor. The first freshman class registered in 1917 under President Henry Eugene Watters (1916-1918). The college boasted a teaching faculty of nine members. By the academic year 1918-19, some 300 students were enrolled in either a junior college or an academy curriculum. With World War I raging, a student cavalry unit drilled regularly on the college grounds. New dormitories soon encircled the classic campus quadrangle. In 1924, Dr. Franklin S. Groner, the Secretary of the Baptist General Convention of Texas, conveyed the Baptists’ commitment to assume the college debt if the Marshall Chamber of Commerce would supply $12,500 annually for five years, enabling it to remain open. Leading the college during the trying days of The Great Depression, Dr. Franklin Groner (192842) assumed the presidency and instituted a permanent endow-

ment program. In 1935, an additional 43 acres were purchased, including the land and buildings of the St. Joseph’s Boys Industrial Orphanage, some of which was converted to men’s housing. In 1938, Baptist layman and builder Fred Hale broke ground for Laura Groner Hall, a modern residence hall for women. A reduced replica of Mt. Vernon, the stunning structure stood complete in 1940, its austere construction having cost only $10,500. World War II robbed the campus of its men and resources. By 1943, only 137 students remained. In 1944, the trustees, making perhaps the most important decision in the institution’s history, asked the Baptist General Convention of Texas to elevate the college to four-year status and to change the name to East Texas Baptist College. A former pastor of First Baptist Church, Midland, Texas, Dr. Harvey Daniel Bruce (19421960), the college’s ninth president, oversaw a vigorous postwar enrollment and building boom. Veterans arrived on campus, many bringing their families, and enrollment briefly surpassed 800. Prefabricated war surplus family housing was erected on the campus perimeter. The college added Scarborough Chapel in 1948, which was built in the neo-Gothic style. Also added were Feagin Hall, a new men’s residence facility; a cafeteria and student center; and additions to the women’s residence hall, which was renamed for Merle Bruce, wife of the college president. Two ornate, neo-classical buildings were added in the 1950s, Sanderson Hall (now Craig Hall) to house the laboratory sciences departments, and Harvey Daniel Bruce Hall as the new library/administrative complex. Keys Gymnasium was built in 1960. In 1961 a new women’s residence hall, named after Evelyn Linebery, with its long portico and roomy plantation-


BU style architecture, was completed. Dr. Bruce labored to establish a liberal arts tradition, along with strong degree programs in Bible and religion. His administration’s crowning achievement came in 1957 when the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools granted accreditation to East Texas Baptist College. Under Dr. Howard C. Bennett as president (1960-76), the academic program established enduring credibility. Dr. Bennett, the former pastor of First Baptist Church, Kilgore, oversaw construction of the new Howard C. Bennett Student Center in 1973. Dr. Jerry Dawson (1976-85), who had been Graduate Dean at Southwest Texas State University, became the first professional educator to lead the college. By 1982, the postwar “baby boom” peaked and enrollment stood at 920 students. A spacious new president’s home replaced the stately residence that Drs. Bruce and Bennett had occupied. After the opening of the Mamye Jarrett Library in 1979, H. D. Bruce Hall became available for the Religion and Teacher Education departments. Married students occupied several new brick housing units. Charles Fry Hall for Men was opened. As age claimed some of the original college buildings, the older men’s dormitory, buildings of the old orphanage, and various frame and prefabricated structures were dismantled during the 1970s and 1980s. In 1984 the University Charter revision changed the institutional name to East Texas Baptist University. However, by 1985, enrollment gains had eroded. During the interim presidency of Dr. Harvey Lewis (1985-86), the University met various deferred maintenance and operating needs. The former president of two other Baptist institutions from

EAST TEXAS BAPTIST UNIVERSITY

1961 to 1986, Dr. Robert Craig (1986-1992) launched a building program of unprecedented proportions, including the Fred Hale Business Building in 1988-89. Other subsequent construction projects were the Jenna Guest Music Building, the Louise Rogers Spiritual Life Center, now known as the Ornelas Spiritual Life Center; major additions to the Bennett Student Center, construction of the Clifford Nelson Murphy Science Hall, and the Mabee Housing Complex. The untimely death of Dr. Craig in March 1992, only two months prior to his announced retirement, was followed by the leadership of Dr.

Bob E. Riley (1992-Present), who had been President of the Howard County Junior College District in Big Spring, Texas. Under Dr. Riley, the University experienced record student enrollments. The campus continued to develop under President Riley’s leadership with the 1995 completion of the Dean Healthplex and Ornelas Gymnasium. Fall 1996 found the opening of The Joseph and Louise Ornelas Residential Complex and the renovation of Marshall Hall, which was completed in 1997. Meadows Hall, which houses the Murphy Instructional Technology Center and the Department of Mathematics was renovated and occupied beginning with the fall semester of 1999. The University Apartments opened in fall 2002, and the renovation of Scarborough Chapel into Scarborough Hall was complete in January 2004. Dr. Riley completed his 17th year at ETBU in 2008-09 after having announced his retirement in May of 2008. Dr. Dub Oliver was named President-elect of ETBU in the fall of 2008 and assumed the office officially on June 1, 2009. As the University seeks to streamline academic planning and to continue development of its academic and co-curricular programs, the task remains, as always, to affirm and focus the ETBU mission, to see God active in all its parts, and to sustain faithfully the ethical, spiritual, and intellectual foundations of a truly Christian liberal arts education.

He had been employed in various positions at Baylor for 16 years upon his election as President of ETBU. “After an extensive nation-wide search, Dr. Dub Oliver comes to ETBU very highly recommended to lead this university as its next President,” said Board of Trustees Chair Hal Cornish, who also served as the chair of the Presidential Search Committee. “His credentials as a senior administrator are very extensive and impressive.” Dr. Oliver and his wife, Susie, along with their daughter, Callie, expressed excitement upon joining the ETBU family. “Susie and I are humbled and excited to have this opportunity to serve at East Texas Baptist University,” said Dr. Oliver. “We’re thankful for the Presidential Search Committee, the Board of Trustees, President Bob and Gayle Riley, and the ETBU family who have been so welcoming and encouraging to us.” A native of San Antonio, Texas, Oliver is a graduate of Baylor University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Education. He holds a Master of Science degree in Educational Psychology from Texas A&M University. Oliver earned his Doctor of Philosophy degree in Educational Administration from Texas A&M as well.

In June 1999, he took on additional responsibilities as the Associate Dean for Campus Life.

Dr. Oliver has also served Baylor as a Visiting Professor in the Hankamer School of Business, an Adjunct Professor in the School of Education, and Interim University Chaplain. He served in the United States Air Force stationed at Carswell Air Force Base in the late 1980’s. Before entering graduate school, he was a third-grade teacher in the Fort Worth Independent School District. Dr. Oliver’s wife, Susie, is was an adjunct faculty member and full-time cheerleader coach at Baylor. Their daughter, Callie, will be a senior in high school in 2009-10. “Dr. Oliver comes very highly recommended by the Provost of Baylor, Dr. Randall O’Brien, who has recently been named President of Carson-Newman College,” said Cornish. “We believe Dr. Oliver will be the ideal person to lead an already outstanding Christian university into the 21st century.” “East Texas Baptist University, near the conclusion of its first century of service and at the beginning of a new century of faithfulness, is well positioned for increased excellence in all its endeavors. In doing so, the University will, by God’s grace, become an even brighter light on the hill to a world that is desperately in need,” said Dr. Oliver.

Joanna Soles Athletic Trainer

Marcus Holliday Athletic Trainer

An athletic trainer is a qualified allied health care professional, educated and experienced in the management of health care problems associated with sport participation. In cooperation with physicians and other allied health care personnel, the athletic trainer functions as an integral member of the athletic health care team in secondary schools, colleges and universities, professional sports programs, sports medicine clinics, and other athletic health care settings. ETBU’s program prepares graduates, through a combination of formal classroom instruction and supervised clinical experiences, to assume entry-level positions in the athletic training profession and provides a foundation for advanced study in athletic training. The student must satisfactorily complete all academic requirements as well as the supervised practical experience hours as set forth by the Texas Advisory Board of Athletic Training or the National Athletic Trainers’ Association Board of Certification. The ETBU Department of Kinesiology and Exercise Science does not guarantee that each person admitted to the athletic training educational program will pass all elements of the program or that those graduated from the program will be able to pass the state licensing or national certification exams. The attainment of these goals is dependent upon the degree to which the students diligently apply themselves to their studies. ETBU is accredited through CAATE (Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education). Accreditation was awarded in April 2005.

ETB

HEAD FOOTBALL COACH 903-923-2188

Mark Sartain will enter his third season as head football coach at East Texas Baptist University in 2009 with a program that now has two years of growth and development on which to build. Under Sartain, the Tigers have gone 5-5 in each of his first two seasons and have finished in the upper half of the American Southwest Conference both years. The 2008 season was both encouraging and frustrating in that the Tigers roared out of the gate with a 3-1 mark that included three straight wins to open the conference season. The only loss in that stretch was a 29-15 setback and national powerhouse St. John’s in the season opener in a game that saw ETBU hold a 15-14 lead entering the fourth quarter. ETBU once again fielded one of the youngest teams in the ASC as evidenced by the fact that just eight seniors were in the starting lineup. A major focus for Sartain and his staff since taking over the program in December of 2006 has been to increase the number of players in the program as well as keeping those players in the program throughout their college career. Sartain’s first recruiting class in 2007 produced up to nine freshmen starters that season. Of that class, 25 stuck around for their sophomore seasons. Entering this season, the Tigers 27 players who will be juniors, which has ETBU on pace to field the largest senior class in the history of the program in 2010. Developing continuity and consistency within the program was a key goal for Sartain when he was named just the second head coachin the modern-day era of ETBU football on Dec. 13, 2006. Sartain arrived at ETBU with a long history of success in the East Texas coaching ranks, both at the high school and junior college levels as a head coach. With a coaching career that spans over a quarter-century, Sartain has developed a wealth of contacts among the coaching community that has been a tremendous asset in ETBU’s recruiting efforts. Under his direction the last two years the Tigers have implemented a series of spring coaching clinics, “Monday Night Football,” in which area high school coaches meet and share ideas and philosophies on Monday nights in the spring. The Tigers have also focused on off-the-field contributions to the surrounding community during Sartain’s time as head coach. These activities included a summer mission trip to Croatia in the summer of 2008 in which a group of ETBU football players and coaches, including Sartain, visited war-torn Croatia and helped rebuild a church among other various mission activities. A summer mission trip to England has been planned for 2009 as well. ETBU players have also participated in youth

mentoring programs while also aiding local efforts by Habitat for Humanity. Sartain also began youth summer football camps at ETBU, with Tiger coaches and players working with area youth during a weeklong camp at Ornelas Stadium. Sartain has also put the Tigers on the national map in terms of the team’s scheduling. ETBU scheduled traditional Division III powerhouse St. John’s in Minnesota to open the 2008 season and later faced Azusa Pacific, located in Azusa, Calif., in the ninth game of the season. In 2009, ETBU will play its first all-Division III schedule with non-conference games at home against Wisconsin-La Crosse to open the season followed by a road game back to the West Coast to face Redlands. Prior to accepting the ETBU head coaching position, Sartain spent the previous four seasons as head coach at Trinity Valley Community College in Athens, Texas. He guided the Cardinals to the Southwest Junior College Football Conference (SWJCFC) championship in 2005. It was Sartain’s second stint on staff at Trinity Valley, having served as offensive coordinator with the program from 1991-94. The 1994 season culminated with TVCC going 12-0 and winning the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) national championship. A native of Van Alstyne, Texas, Sartain has been a head coach at some level for 18 years, beginning with his first head coaching job at Cross Roads High School, in Athens, in 1986. In fact, of his 24 seasons as a football coach, Sartain has been either a head coach or coordinator in 23 of them. He has spent every year of his career coaching in East Texas, from Athens to Eustace to White Oak to Marshall. But before coming to ETBU, Sartain had been a collegiate head coach just four years, and that was at the junior college level. But his success at Trinity Valley on the offensive side of the ball was very attractive for ETBU officials when the Tiger head coaching position opened up following a 3-7 mark in 2006. Sartain’s offenses at Trinity Valley were consistently among the best in the nation, especially when he was coordinator in the early 1990s. The Cardinals ranked in the top 10 nationally in total offense and also set a conference record in 1994, with 450 points in just 12 games. In his four years as offensive coordinator at TVCC, Sartain coached three Cardinal quarterbacks to All-America honors. During his years as offensive coordinator at TVCC, the Cardinals were a combined 30-12-2

with an unbeaten national championship season in 1994. A dozen players off those teams have either played or continue to play in the NFL, including cornerback Al Harris of the Green Bay Packers and kicker Matt Bryant of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Sartain left his coordinator position at Trinity Valley in 1995 to take over as head coach at White Oak High School in White Oak, Texas. In his eight seasons there as athletic director/head coach with the Roughnecks, Sartain’s teams made the playoffs three times and won the school’s first district football championship in 18 years. As AD, Sartain implemented White Oak’s athletic booster club while also establishing the annual “Maroon Madness” midnight pep rally to generate community enthusiasm and usher in the new school year and fooball season. White Oak generated an increase in football program participation of more than 80 percent and an overall athletic program participation increase of 40 percent under Coach Sartain’s watch. Sartain also implemented girls softball, girls powerlifting, cross country and track at White Oak, and the Roughnecks won 15 district championships


BU

in seven different sports in his time as athletic director. He returned to Trinity Valley prior to the 2003 season to accept the Cardinals’ head coaching position. In his four seasons as head coach, TVCC went 17-23, which included a 9-3 mark in 2005 that saw the Cardinals win the conference championship and finish No. 7 in the national JUCO rankings. Overall in his eight seasons as either offensive coordinator or head coach at Trinity Valley, the Cardinals posted a 47-35-2 record with a national championship with Sartain on staff. In his last two seasons at TVCC, the Cardinals had 16 players sign Division I scholarships with programs such as Arkansas, Tennesee, Texas A&M, Iowa State, Washington State, New Mexico, Memphis, Hawaii, Bowling Green and Tulsa. Of those 16, only two had been original Division I signees out of high school. Sartain began his coaching career after his college playing days ended at Austin College in Sherman, Texas. As a player he was a starter on the Kangaroos’ 1981 NAIA Division II national championship team and finished as a two-time Texas Intercollegiate Athletic Association (TIAA) all-conference nose tackle. A serious knee injury ended his playing career, but Sartain went on and received a B.A. in Physical Education and History in 1982. A year later he completed work on a masters in Secondary Education from Austin College. He entered the coaching field in 1984 as defensive line coach at Athens High School, where he also served as junior varsity head coach. Sartain also was Athens’ powerlifting coach from 1983-86, leading a group that finished as regional champions three times and was state runnerup in 1985. In just his second season on staff at Athens, Sartain was promoted to offensive coordinator. While on staff at Athens, Sartain saw the Hornets accomplish their first winning season in five years in 1984 with a 6-2-2 finish and second-place district finish in 1985. He was named head coach at Cross Roads High School in 1986, just three years removed from college. Sartain led the program there to its first non-losing season (5-5) and first winning season (6-2-2) in the school’s history. In fact, in the six years prior to his arrival, Cross Roads won a total of five games at the Class A level before winning five in Sartain’s first season as coach in ‘86. Cross Roads went 6-4 in 1988 and finished as district runnerup, but the team missed the playoffs after missing out on a district tiebreaker. Sartain left Cross Roads in 1989 to become head coach at Eustace High School in 1989. After two seasons with the Bulldogs, he entered the collegiate coaching ranks with his first stint at Trinity Valley in 1991. His life is in no means dedicated solely to football, despite his accomplishments. Coach Sartain is very active away from the field, enjoying building rustic furniture as well as hunting. He also has a deep passion for music, as well as a passion for serving Christ. Sartain has spent a bi-vocational career as minister of music, spending eight years as worship leader at Calvary Baptist Church in Longview, Texas, while also coaching at White Oak. He has performed as lead singer in a praise and worship band while also continuing to fill in as worship leader for area congregations on an interim basis. Mark and his wife, Gina, are members of Immanuel Baptist Church in Marshall and live in Harleton, Texas, just a few minutes drive away from the ETBU campus. They have two adult children, Marshall and Melody, both of whom are married.

COACH SARTAIN ON... • WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A TIGER FOOTBALL PLAYER: You have chosen to be a part of

a program that is committed to success on the field, in the classroom, in the community, and in the personal lives of each individual far beyond their time here at ETBU. He desires to be a part of a program that is committed to the development of the man, not just the player. The Tiger football player understands the proper relationship of athletics and academics, he understands the “TEAM” concept and his role in its’ development. The Tiger Football Player is a part of a program that seeks to obtain the highest possible level of achievement with the highest level of integrity, and sincerely believes that both are attainable without the compromising of either. These young men are taught the proper perspectives regarding their sport and life. They realize that,” there is more to life than football”, but there is also,” more to football than just football”. That this philosophy does not diminish the importance of winning, but merely fosters a healthy and realistic approach to it and that there is far reaching value in their experience in the sport.

• TEAMWORK: We have embraced the emphasis of the following quote by Mia Hamm:

“I am a member of a team, and I rely on the team, I defer to it and sacrifice for it, because the team, not the individual, is the ultimate champion.” Not endorsing her values or principles necessarily, but simply an agreement with the concept found in the quote. We continually stress the fact that the individual is not valuable because of his “contribution to the team”, but because he is a part, “of the team.”

• THE AMERICAN SOUTHWEST CONFERENCE: Arguably the toughest Div. III conference, top to bottom, in the nation. I would take the top 5 teams in the ASC vs the top 5 teams in any. Other conference in America, and believe that year in, year out, we could average four wins.

• CHARACTER: We have heard all the definitions given to the word and I personally be-

lieve that “true character” can never be overrated but is frequently overstated. So often we hear the word used regarding a team or an individual’s heroics under adverse conditions on the field of play but it fails to match up with who they are away from the world of competition. This is not character! This is nothing more than the results of an athlete’s mental, emotional, and physical training for what he desires to accomplish. Character is only character when it is consistent over time and from situation to situation. We call this “integrity”, character in action, consistent over time.

• PURPOSE-PASSION-PREPARATION-POISE: These are the building blocks, the foundational principles of success we stress. They apply to every human endeavor. POISE – The positioning of oneself for the accomplishment of an objective. PREPARATION – The intentional and directed commitment to the training essential in accomplishing an objective. PASSION – The burning desire that drives the individual to accomplish an objective. PURPOSE – The premeditated, unconditional commitment to an objective. As you can see, these each serve as a prerequisite to the other, the preceding providing the foundation for each subsequent principle. They will only work in this order…without first the PURPOSE, there will be no PASSION. Without the PASSION, there will be no motivation to PREPAE. Without the necessary PREPARATION, the individual cannot be properly POISED for accomplishment.

• FACILITIES: We are extremely proud of our facility and feel very blessed to have them. I think we compare favorably to all we compete against from an overall perspective. Dr. Riley and all those responsible for putting this program on the ground in 2000 did a wonderful job. We are also very excited about the continued upgrades, (lights), and the future plans for stadium expansion. These steps will, without a doubt, place our facility in a position to rival any in the nation at the Div.III level.

• RECRUITING: Recruiting is a challenge at the Div.III level for the obvious reasons.

However, we are fortunate to be in a place, (East Texas), surrounded by some of the best football in the country, and within striking distance of the DFW metroplex. Our problem has not been finding and getting enough players, it has been room to put them all. Of course our recruiting philosophy begins with “fit.” We look first at a prospective studentathlete’s fit to our University as well as the chemistry and personality of our team. We next determine his potential for academic success. If these two areas line up, we evaluate athletic ability. Then, and only then do we pursue.

• FAITH: I am first, a follower of Christ. My faith is at the core of all that I am and is the

constant factor in all that I do. I have said many times, “I am not a coach that just happens to be a Christian, I am a Christian that just happens to be a coach.” Coaching is merely the vehicle God has chosen in my life to deliver His good news to those I have opportunity to influence. It is the platform He has given me to bring honor to Him. I cannot separate any part of my life from my faith, nor can I refrain from the expressing of that faith in all that I do.

• 2009 EXPECTATIONS: High. I believe in 2007 we overachieved, but in 2008 we under-

achieved. We will enter this season almost certainly with a record number of seniors., returning starters, as well as senior starters. We have proven talent at virtually every position and confidence in those who may be yet unproven. We have established a continuity in our staff and the general priorities of our program and I believehave placed ourselves in a position to,”CLOSE AND OVERTAKE!”

ZACBRYANT

RUNNING GAME COORDINATOR/ OFFENSIVE LINE 903-923-2202 zbryant@etbu.edu

Zac Bryant will be in his third season as ETBU’s offensive line coach in 2009. Over the last two seasons Bryant has worked to build an offensive line that is versatile and experienced. Entering 2009, ETBU returns three senior starters in center Jonathan Council, guard Stephen Nicasio and tackle Michael Colvin. Council and Nicasio were named honorable mention All-ASC in 2008 after both started every game. The Tigers have developed one of the top rushing offenses in the ASC over the last two seasons. ETBU’s offensive line helped generate 174 yards per game on the ground in 2008, which ranked fourth in the conference. The unit also allowed just nine sacks on the season, which ranked as the second-best total in the ASC. This season, Bryant will also serve as ETBU’s running game coordinator. Prior to coaching at ETBU in ‘07, Bryant spent two seasons THE BRYANTS: Zac, Holli and Collier as offensive line coach at Tyler Junior College, and he coached at Texas A&M-Commerce in 2004. He was an All-Lone Star Conference performer at Southwestern Oklahoma State in 200203 and also was team captain.

In two seasons under Corey Chancellor’s direction the ETBU defense has ranked as one of the top overall units in the American Southwest Conference. The Tigers ranked third in total defense in the ASC in 2008, allowing 335 yards per game. ETBU was the No. 2-ranked unit against the run, allowing opponents to rush for just 112 yards a contest. Chancellor, who also coaches defensive backs, joined the ETBU staff in January of 2007, about a month after Mark Sartain was named head coach. Sartain and Chancellor go way back, all the way back to Chancellor’s days as a player at Athens High School where Sartain was a coach in the 1980s. From Athens, Chancellor went on to earn an Associate of Arts degree in Kinesiology at Trinity Valley Community College in 1989. He then received a B.S.E. in Kinesiology and Health Education from Texas A&M-Commerce in 1995. Prior to earning his bachelor’s degree, Chancellor worked a career in law enforcement as a police officer in Garland, Texas from 1989-93. He graduated from the Garland Police Academy in 1989 and worked as an officer in the department’s narcotics unit as well as being a member of the S.W.A.T. team. He was also a member of the department’s Honor Guard. He entered the coaching field with assistant coaching positions at Terrell High School in Terrell, Texas, and at Wilmer-Hutchins High School in Dallas. Chancellor coached defensive backs at Terrell and coached wide receivers during his time at Wilmer-Hutchins. From 2000-01, Chancellor coached defensive ends at Jacksonville High School in Jackonsville, Texas. He then moved on to coach running backs at Houston’s Alief Hastings High School from 2001-04. Chancellor returned to Trinity Valley as a coach in 2004, joining again with Sartain who had become head coach there in 2003. As defensive coordinator with the Cardinals, Chancellor’s defenses were consistently ranked in the top tier in the Southwest Junior College Football Conference. The Cardinals finished No. 3 in total defense in 2004, and the unit helped Trinity Valley to a 2005 NJCAA Region XIV championship and final No. 7 national ranking in 2005. In his last season as coordinator at TVCC, Chancellor’s defense produced 10 players who signed with Division I or Division II programs. Three of those players -- safeties Nevin McKenzie (Tennessee) and Zach Wagoner (Midwestern State) and cornerback Arseel Shakoor (West Texas A&M) were members of the secondary unit coached directly by Chancellor.

ETBU’s defense took another step last season, ranking third overall in total defense with a No. 2 conference ranking against the run and a No. 3 ranking in sacks. It all begins with the big guys up front, and the Tigers will return four starters from that unit in 2009. Juniors Evan Beaton and Brad Wallace, both of Whitehouse, return along with seniors Austin Sturrock and George Paongo to give the Tigers a nice mix of size, strength and speed in the defensive front. With some added depth and experience in the spring, position coach Benny Ellison is looking for even more production from the defensive line this fall. “We look very athletic up front,” says Ellison, in his third year on staff at ETBU. “Our depth will be very advantageous this next fall. Our ‘twos’ will be right up there with our ‘ones’ in ability, and I think this will be a very exciting year for the d-line.” Ellison will be in his second year as the Tigers’ defensive line coach in 2009, having coached cornerbacks in his first year in the program in 2007. Ellison’s group helped ETBU finish as the No. 2-ranked defense in the American Southwest Conference last season against the run, holding opponents to 112 yards per game on the ground. The Tigers were third in the conference in sacks, with 17. The bulk of last season’s unit is expected to return in 2009, making the defensive line one of the deepest and most experienced units on the team. Ellison joined the Tiger football staff in June of 2007 after 17 years in public education as a football coach, track coach, English teacher and principal. He had spent the previous two years at Birdville ISD, where he coached defensive backs and was head track coach at Haltom High School. While at Haltom Ellison also taught English. Ellison graduated from ETBU in 1990 with a B.S.E. in Education. While at ETBU he was part of the Tiger basketball program, and the 1987-88 squad with Ellison advanced to the NAIA national tournament. Originally from Orange, Texas, Ellison graduated from Little Cypress-Mauriceville High School. After getting his undergraduate degree from ETBU, he attended Stephen F. Austin State University and earned a M.Ed. in Kinesiology and Administration in 1995. Coach Ellison has three children, Hayden, Alysee and Grace.

MORGANGUIDRY ASSISTANT COACH TIGHT ENDS/DEEP SNAPPERS 903-923-2195 mguidry@etbu.edu

While it can’t exactly be classified as starting over, the tight end position in ETBU’s offense will include a host of new faces this fall. “Growing pains” is how third-year Tigers tight ends coach Morgan Guidry described the position last spring, as well as the last couple of seasons. The Tigers’ top two tight ends at the beginning of last season, Nick Peoples and Josh Hickman, are no longer on the roster, and only one returning player at the position -- junior Craig Blankenship-- has seen any kind of varsity game action entering the spring. “We have experienced some growing pains over the last two seasons,” says Guidry. “We will have to mature a lot, and in a hurry.” A host of incoming recruits will challenge for playing time at tight end this season, with the position continuing to evolve throughout the year as ETBU will also use more multiple-receiver sets. “In the spring we were short on numbers, with (Blankenship) coming out due to his experience,” Guidry says. “We’ve added some bodies this fall and the position has some depth now, it’s just very inexperienced. We are going to make up for that by working hard and some guys are going to be thrown into the fire a little bit...but I’m excited about the challenge.” In addition to coaching tight ends, Guidry also works with the team’s deep snappers, a position he excelled during his days as a player at the high school and collegiate levels. A graduate of the University of Tulsa who was also a member of the 2002 Trinity Valley Community College football team that finished No. 5 in the nation, Guidry was a graduate assistant at Tulsa in 2006 before joining ETBU’s new staff under coach Mark Sartain. Guidry played two seasons at Tulsa in 2004-05, serving as the team’s deep snapper. In 2005 Guidry was a member of the Golden Hurricane team that won the Conference USA championship and Liberty Bowl. A native of Alto, Texas, Guidry was a two-time All-State selection in high school and played on two state quarterfinalist teams. As a senior he was selected to play in the Texas High School Coaches Association High School All-Star Game.

COLBYJACKSON ASSISTANT COACH DEFENSE/JUNIOR VARSITY 903-923-2193 cjackson@etbu.edu

Colby Jackson moves onto the coaching ranks at ETBU after completing his playing career as a Tiger last season. Jackson was a linebacker/safety for the Tigers from 2004-08, with a medical redshirt season mixed in following an ankle injury early in 2007. During his playing career Jackson was one of the Tigers’ most consistent tacklers, finishing with 177 stops to rank seventh all-time on ETBU’s career tackles list. In 2006, as a junior, Jackson was the Tigers’ team leader in stops defensively with a career-high 66. He started the final seven games of that season and finished with three games of 10 tackles or more. As a freshman in 2004 Jackson played in every game at linebacker, and he started the final three games. As a senior in 2007, he was moved to safety and started the first two games but suffered an ankle injury that shelved him for the rest of the year. He received a medical redshirt for that year and came back in 2008 to play in every game, finishing with 33 tackles and a team-high three fumble recoveries. Jackson will serve as a defensive backfield assistant coach this season while also coaching on the Tiger junior varsity. A native of Emory, Texas, Jackson joined ETBU back in 2004 after a high school career that saw him earn All-District honors at four different positions. He was voted team MVP and Defensive Player of the Year at Rains High School during his senior season in 2003.

RODNEYMCLAIN ASSISTANT COACH RUNNING BACKS 903-923-2200 rmclain@etbu.edu

New position coach Rodney McLain will be the beneficiary of working with perhaps the deepest position on the 2009 team, at least entering the season. McLain, who played at ETBU for two years from 2006-07, will be in his first season as a fulltime assistant coach this season after working as a student assistant last season. “I haven’t been with this group long as a coach but I’ve seen what they can do,” said McLain. “I am excited about the depth, versatility and production of this group.” Junior Jair Stover drew a majority of starts last season as a sophomore, and turned into a solid workhorse. Stover (5-10, 185) led ETBU in both carries (173) and yards (914), while also scoring four touchdowns. Junior Corey George has churned out 1,248 yards and 15 touchdowns the last two seasons. George averaged 5.4 yards per carry last season working in tandem with Stover, and he was named first-team all-conference following the season. The depth to the position comes with sophomore Trevor Cavness, a lightning bolt with the potential of scoring from anywhere on the field at any time. Then there’s sophomore Tan Stokes, a standout on the JV last fall as a freshman. The Hughes Springs, TX, native has athleticism and quickness and will push for carries as a sophomore this fall. McLain, a native of Plano,joined the ETBU program as a player in 2006 and played in nine games as a freshman safety. He finished fifth on the team in tackles that year and started six games. He was moved across the ball on offense as a sophomore in 2007 with the arrival of a new coaching staff. He played in six games, catching 26 passes for 285 yards and one touchdown, but his season was cut short due to a heat-related injury that forced him to never be able to play at 100 percent the entire year. He joined the coaching staff as a student assistant last fall and worked as an offensive assistant before being promoted to running backs coach this spring. A former TAPPS All-State quarterback at Prestonwood Christian Academy in Plano, McLain signed to play at the Air Force Academy out of high school. He transferred to Texas Tech and then on to ETBU to resume his football career in 2006.

PASSING GAME COORDINATOR/ RECEIVERS 903-923-2198

wmurchison@etbu.edu One thing the Tigers have going for them at receiver, according to receivers coach Will Murchison, is a great work ethic as well as the ability. Putting all that together on the field on Saturdays, however, is going to be the challenge for this year’s group. “Overall our guys are very smart, coachable and athletic,” said Murchison, who will be in his sixth year as ETBU’s receivers coach this fall. “But we are very young. They have a good sense of the scheme, they practice hard and go to work every day. It’s a fun group to coach, but they need as many reps as we can give them against live bullets. With experience we feel like this will be an outstanding group.” Two starters from last season’s team -- Jari Brooks and Chris Powell -- combined to catch 47 of the team’s 125 total receptions in 2008. Neither of those players will be suiting up for ETBU this season, so the Tigers are looking for production from largely new faces this in 2009. Murchison came on staff at ETBU in 2004 as wide receivers coach after coaching the previous four seasons at Monterey High School in his hometown of Lubbock, Texas. Since joining the ETBU program, and three of his players -- Earl Morris and LaKendrick O’Neal in 2004, and Jason Gray in 2006 -- have been named All-American Southwest Conference. In 2007, seven different Tiger receivers caught passes, with four -- senior Ruben Robinson, freshman Tony Cavness, sophomore Rodney McLain and junior Chris Powell -- hauling in at least 23 passes apiece. Robinson led the group with 41 receptions. That number doubled in 2008, with 14 different receivers hauling in at least one catch on the season. This past offseason, Murchison was also named the Tigers’ passing game coordinator. Murchison also works as the program’s video coordinator, handling game and practice tape and coordinating the Tigers’ video exchange with opponents. At Lubbock Monterey, Murchison coached running backs and receivers for a program that was the only Class 5A team in Texas to advance to the third round of the playoffs every year. Murchison completed work on a Bachelor of Science in Political Science from Texas Tech University in 2003.

The 2009 linebacking corps at ETBU will not be lacking in options for third-year position coach Cody Robinson. The Tigers return at least three players -- junior Michael Uvalle, senior Brandon Joslin, and redshirt sophomore Jon Chitty -- who started games last season or at some time in their careers at ETBU. Robinson, a native of Spring, Texas, became the Tigers’ linebackers coach in June of 2007 after a two-year stint as linebackers coach at Trinity Valley Community College under current ETBU head coach Mark Sartain. Robinson was a three-year letterman at Klein Oak High School in Spring before walking on at Trinity Valley as a freshman in 2003. A year later, he was elected team captain and was the team’s THE ROBINSONS: Cody and Stephanie leading tackler while making the AllSouthwest Junior College Football Conference team. He entered the coaching ranks at TVCC the following year, joining a staff that led the Cardinals to the 2005 SWJCFC championship and No. 7 national ranking. That season, Trinity Valley also won the annual Pilgrims Pride Bowl. In his two seasons coaching linebackers at TVCC, Robinson coached two first-team All-SWJCFC selections with another two earning honorable mention all-conference honors. Cody and his wife, Stephanie, were married this past summer.

A view from the visiting radio booth at Saint John’s Clemens Stadium in Collegeville, Minn., site of the 2008 ETBU season opener. game one

SAINT JOHN’S 29, ETBU 15

Sept. 6, 2008 • Clemens Stadium • Collegeville, MN

ETBU had fifth-ranked Saint John’s on the ropes for three quarters in the 2008 season opener, but it was the Johnnies’ experience over the final 12 minutes that proved to be the difference in a hard-fought 29-15 win over the Tigers before 7,963 fans at Clemens Stadium. ETBU (0-1) held a one-point lead, 15-14, over Saint John’s (1-0), the winningest program in NCAA Division III history, with under 12 minutes to play in the fourth quarter. But the Johnnies put together a 12-play, 77-yard drive capped by a 29-yard touchdown pass from Michael Crees to Jeff Schnobrich that allowed SJU to regain the lead they would not give up again. For ETBU, the loss wass a bitter pill in that the Tigers put themselves in position to upset the Johnnies on their home field but didn’t cash in on several opportunities that may have put the game away earlier. The Tigers’ problems started with a running game that was shut down completely by the Johnnies. ETBU could only generate a net total of 31 yards on the ground. Defensively, ETBU held its own against the Johnnies. The Tigers allowed just 298 yards of total offense on the day, with only 176 of that coming over the final three quarters. ETBU was also stingy against the run, allowing just 51 rushing yards. Saint John’s took the opening kickoff and scored quickly, courtesy of the a trick play. SJU receiver Bryan Busack caught a lateral behind the line and hit a wide-open Ben Vanderhayden for a touchdown to give the Johnnies a 7-0 lead with 12:33 left in the first quarter. ETBU got on the board in the second quarter, courtesy of Kyle Pope’s 29-yard field goal that made it 7-3. It was the first points ETBU had scored in a season opener since the 2005 season, a span of nine-plus quarters. Busak hauled in a 25-yard touchdown from Joe Boyle wth just over two minutes left in the half, giving SJU a 14-3 advantage. But the Tigers answered before the break, capping a nineplay, 60-yard drive with a 16-yard scoring strike from Stephen Oehlschlaeger to Jari Brooks. Pope’s extra point was wide, and the halftime score was 14-9 in favor of Saint John’s. The Tigers took their first lead of the day in the third quarter, when tight end Nick Peoples caught a 48-yard touchdown pass from Oelschlaeger on a beautiful catch-and-run feature some key blocks downfield. Pope’s PAT, however, hit the left upright this time and ETBU’s lead was 15-14 with 7:03 left in the third. Schnobrich’s touchdown gave the lead back to Saint John’s, but ETBU had two chances to tie the game deep in Johnnie territory in the closing moments. But the Tigers were stopped on downs once, and Derek Stifter picked off Oehlschlaeger’s pass to the sideline and returned it 68 yards with 20 seconds left to seal the win for the Johnnies. ETBU was held to 260 yards of total offense compared to SJU’S 298.Oehlschlaeger completed 20 of 42 passes for 229 yards and two touchdowns, but he was picked off three times in the second half. Peoples had a big day, catching seven passes for 91 yards and a score. Brooks and LaRon Gilliam hauled in three passes apiece for ETBU. Schnobrich was key for the Johnnies, rushing 19 times for 52 yards and adding another seven catches for 101 yards, including the game-winning touchdown.

ETBU couldn’t have asked for a better beginning to its conference opener in Ornelas Stadium. Or an ending, for that matter – the Tigers held off the Lobos for a 35-21 win in front of 1,820 fans on a warm, sunny day in East Texas. But what happened in-between gave the Tigers some pause – six turnovers, costly penalties, etc. – to not be totally satisfied with their first victory in a home opener since 2001. In the end, however, ETBU used a strong running game and a stingy defense to turn back the scrappy Lobos for the Tigers’ first win of 2008. Things got going early for the Tigers, when freshman Trevor Cavness returned the opening kickoff 51 yards into Sul Ross territory and would have scored were it not for a touchdown-saving tackle by the Lobos’ Johnnie Williams. Cavness put points up four plays later, however, scampering over the left side for a 25-yard touchdown run that put ETBU up 7-0 just over two minutes into the game. ETBU then recovered a fumble on the ensuing kickoff, with Josh Schattel recovering at the Lobo 17. Two plays later, sophomore tailback Jair Stover burst up the middle for a 10-yard scoring run and ETBU found itself up 14-0 with 12:16 remaining in the first quarter. The mistakes then begin to pile up for ETBU. Facing a 2nd-and-11 from the ETBU 25, quarterback Stephen Oehlschlaeger hooked up with wide receiver Jari Brooks on an apparent 75-yard touchdown pass, but the play was called back due to holding. Without the penalty, ETBU would have taken a 21-0 lead and been in full control of the contest. Instead, the Tigers were forced to punt and Sul Ross drove 63 yards on eight plays culminated by a 6-yard touchdown scamper by Jermaine Swearington, his first of three on the day. The 14-point swing made it 14-7 in favor of ETBU, but the Tigers had lost some momentum built up through the first part of the game. The teams traded punts on the next two series, then traded turnovers on the following two. Joseph Price picked off Oehlschlaeger’s pass and returned it 32 yards to the Tiger 44. Three plays later, however, Lobo quarterback Monte Morales’ short pass over the middle was snagged out of the air by ETBU defensive tackle Evan Beaton, who rumbled 41 yards to the Sul Ross 11. Fullback Tyler Simmons punched it in from three yards out, and ETBU’s lead was bumped back up to 21-7. The Tigers appeared to regain control in the third quarter, when Oehlschlaeger found a wideopen Justin Hollie for a 39-yard touchdown pass at the 8:42 mark to make it 28-7. But Sul Ross wouldn’t go away. The Lobos got back into the game when Williams ripped the football away from ETBU tight end Nick Peoples and scampered 36 yards to the Tiger 16. Swearington scored on the next play, and it was 28-14 with 6:14 left in the third quarter. Oehlschlaeger was picked again on the next possession, this time by David Coe at the Lobo 25. Sul Ross then put together an 8-play, 75-yard drive culminated by Swearington’s third score of the day, a 19-yard scamper that made it 28-21 with 48 seconds left in the quarter. ETBU’s defense then took over. Sul Ross started four consecutive drives near midfield in the fourth quarter, but the Lobos couldn’t generate a single first down in those situations. Following ETBU’s sixth turnover of the day at the Lobo 26, Sul Ross was 75 yards away from a tying score with 1:20 remaining. The defense stepped up again, however. A 4th-and-2 pass from Morales was picked off by ETBU’s Anquanius Frazier, who returned it 53 yards to set up Oehlschlaeger’s 1-yard sneak for the game-clinching touchdown with 18 seconds left. Following the kickoff, Frazier ended the game by snaring another Morales pass with five seconds left. Offensively, the Tiger running game saved the day. After posting just 31 yards on the ground in a loss at Saint John’s, ETBU churned out 260 yards on the ground against the Lobos. Stover led the way with 99 yards on 24 carries, while Corey George ripped off 94 on 12 totes.

Trevor Cavness (28) scored the Tigers’ first touchdown in the home opener against Sul Ross State.

2008 GAME RECAPS game three

ETBU 26, TEXAS LUTHERAN 14

Sept. 27, 2008 • Matador Stadium • Seguin, TX

For the second time in two weeks, ETBU was able to pull out a win in the final quarter of a game it controlled from the opening kickoff. Another strong outing from the running game and a punishing defensive effort allowed the Tigers to come away with a 26-14 victory over Texas Lutheran in a night game in Matador Stadium. With the win, ETBU (2-1 overall, 2-0 ASC) moved into a three-way tie with Mary Hardin-Baylor (3-0, 2-0) and Hardin-Simmons (4-0, 2-0) for first in the conference. It was a dangerous game for the Tigers, whose first three conference opponents this season were a combined 2-7 on the year heading into the game. That included Texas Lutheran, which was coming off a humbling 63-7 loss at third-ranked Mary Hardin-Baylor the previous week. The Bulldogs also were playing their first home game of the season, and the opportunity to play in front of the home folks had TLU juiced up early in the contest. Bulldogs running back Anthony Smith broke the ice midway through the first quarter by capping a 6-play, 77-yard drive with a 45-yard dart up the middle that put TLU on top early, 7-0. Due in large part to that drive, TLU racked up 82 yards of total offense in the first quarter. But until the the Bulldogs generated an impressive 14-play, 74-yard scoring march late in the third quarter for their second touchdown, the ETBU defense limited TLU to less than 30 yards of total offense between the two scoring drives. Part of the Tigers’ defensive success was generated by a ferocious pass rush that sacked TLU quarterback Joel Waldon five times. ETBU also held Smith, the Bulldogs’ speedy all-conference utility back, to just 12 yards on 13 carries outside of his 45-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. But despite the good play of the defense, the Tigers again found themselves having to fight at the end to preserve the win. When TLU completed the long scoring march in the third quarter, ETBU found itself with just a 19-14 lead entering the fourth quarter. ETBU tied the game in the second quarter when Corey George capped a 66-yard drive with a 3-yard touchdown run that made it 7-7 with 14:52 left in the second quarter. It was the opening of a big night for George and fellow sophomore tailback Jair Stover, as the pair combined for 227 yards and three touchdowns in the game. The Tigers took the lead on their next possession, as Stover scored on a nifty 29-yard run to the end zone. ETBU kicker Kyle Pope missed the PAT, however, left and the Tigers’ lead was 13-7. It was just one of those nights for Pope, the Tigers’ returning all-conference kicker. ETBU’s top kicker missed an extra point, missed a field goal and had another field goal blocked against the Bulldogs. ETBU cruised into the halftime locker room with the 13-7 lead, but the Tigers missed a golden opportunity to widen the lead late in the half. ETBU had the ball inside the Bulldog 5 with less than 20 seconds left in the half, but TLU sacked quarterback Stephen Oehlschlaeger for a big loss and the Tigers miscued a fake field goal and came away with no points. ETBU sophomore cornerback Victor Flores picked off a Waldon pass on the first drive of the second half and returned it 18 yards to the TLU 17. Three plays later George scored from the 2, and following a failed two-point conversion the Tiger lead was 19-7 with 11:27 to go in the third. The Bulldogs made things interesting at the end of a marathon 14-play drive that wiped nearly seven minutes off the clock to end the third. Steven Thrash caught a 1-yard pass from Waldon for a touchdown to cap the drive and the score tightened to 19-14 with 1:28 left in the quarter. Twice in the fourth quarter, TLU had the ball across midfield in Tiger territory with the chance to take the lead, including in the final three minutes of the game. But Waldon was sacked on fourth down to turn the ball over, and George ripped off a huge 28-yard run inside the 5, and Oehlschlaeger sealed the win two plays later to ice the 26-14 victory. George finished with 132 yards on 17 carries and a pair of touchdowns. Stover added another 115 yards on 21 totes with a touchdown. ETBU finished with 385 yards of offense while TLU was held to 188. The Tiger defensive effort was led by linebacker Brandon Joslin, who drew his first start of the season and finished with a team-high six tackles. Sophomore Michael Uvalle, also drawing his first career start at linebacker, finished with five tackles and a half-sack.

ETBU’s offensive line, led by center Jonathan Council, guard Stephen Nicasio and tackle Michael Colvin, helped the ground game produce 249 yards in a home win over McMurry. game four

ETBU 31, MCMURRY 7

Oct. 4, 2008 • Ornelas Stadium • Marshall, TX

Another strong ground attack coupled with a solid defensive effort provided the formula for ETBU, as the Tigers posted a 31-7 win over McMurry in Ornelas Stadium. With the victory, ETBU (3-1, 3-0) kept its place atop the conference standings and set up a showdown with Hardin-Simmons in Abilene the following week.. McMurry dropped to 0-5 and 0-3 with the loss and remained the only team in the ASC never to have defeated ETBU. The win made the Tigers a perfect 9-0 against McMurry since ETBU brought back its football program in 2000. Playing without some starters and key players due to some injuries from the last couple of weeks, the Tigers stayed true to the winning formula they’d discovered in the first part of the season. ETBU rode the legs of their sophomore backfield tandem of Corey George and Jair Stover, who combined to rush for 218 yards on 33 carries with three touchdowns. George led the way with 111 yards on 13 carries, including a 77-yard touchdown jaunt in the fourth quarter that iced the game and was his second score of the day. Stover churned out another 104 yards on 20 totes, scoring the Tigers’ first touchdown of the day in the first quarter. By both going over 100 yards for the second straight week, George and Stover became the first ETBU running back tandem to accomplish that feat in the nine years of the program. Overall, the Tigers kept hammering the McMurry defense with the running game, ending with 249 yards on the ground. It’s the third straight week ETBU has eclipsed over 200 yards rushing in conference play, and the incessant pounding by the Tiger offensive line of Doug Carlton, Stephen Nicasio, Jonathan Council, Winston Ives and Michael Colvin, along with the hard running of Stover and George, eventually wore the visitors down in the second half. A second-half surge by the McMurry offense made things respectable against the ETBU defense, which allowed 242 yards of total offense on the day. Only 47 of that came on the ground, however, with McMurry finally finding some big-play offense with a couple of long hookups in the passing game that set up its only score of the game, a 17-yard connection from backup quarterback Blaine Moore to Simeon Neal with 12:44 to go in the fourth quarter that made the score 17-7. George then iced the game with two touchdowns in the final 12 minutes, one a 2-yard burst at the 8:22 mark to cap an 8-play, 59-yard drive. The big sophomore from Bossier City, La., then broke a tackle at the line and outraced the McMurry defense on a career-best 77-yard run to paydirt with 5:36 to go to give the Tigers a 31-7 lead. ETBU’s other touchdown came on a 19-yard pass from quarterback Stephen Oehlschlaeger to Kenny Waines with 1:48 to go in the second quarter, giving the Tigers a 14-0 lead at the break. The lead ballooned to 17-0 on Kyle Pope’s 37-yard field goal early in the third quarter. Oehlschlaeger finished the day 9 of 24 for 124 yards and a touchdown, and the Tigers’ sophomore quarterback played his second straight game without throwing an interception after tossing six picks in the first two games. Defensively, ETBU was led by a trio of players with high-tackle honors in the game. Cornerback Anquanius Frazier and linebackers Wayne Dixon and Michael Uvalle finished with six tackles apiece. The Tigers forced three turnovers on the day as well.

LOUISIANA COLLEGE 27, ETBU 20

Oct. 18, 2008 • Ornelas Stadium • Marshall, TX

Jair Stover (24) breaks free during a 40-12 loss at Hardin-Simmons. game five

HARDIN-SIMMONS 40, ETBU 12

Oct. 11, 2008 • Shelton Stadium • Abilene, TX

Hardin-Simmons’ defense picked off five ETBU passes and the Cowboys’ offense was in high gear, scoring 20 points in each half on the way to a 40-12 drubbing of the Tigers in a showdown at HSU’s Shelton Stadium in Abilene. The loss snapped ETBU’s three-game conference winning streak and put the Tigers (3-2, 31) in a second-place tie with Hardin-Simmons in the conference race, behind undefeated Mary Hardin-Baylor, which had defeated the Cowboys the week before. The Tigers kept shooting themselves in the foot and could never get untracked offensively, due in large part to the Cowboys’ ball-hawking defense. ETBU quarterback Stephen Oehlschlaeger was picked off five times in the game, three of which came inside the Cowboys’ 20-yard line. All five of the interceptions came in HSU territory. Tiger senior Anquanius Frazier dropped a potential interception on the game’s first play from scrimmage, which opened the door for HSU. Led by junior quarterback Justin Feaster, the Cowboys marched 68 yards in 11 plays to take a 3-0 lead on Matt Fields’ 24-yard field goal. HSU made it 10-0 on its next possession, with Feaster scoring on a 1-yard plunge. The lead ballooned to 17-0 in the second quarter when Feaster hit ZaVious Robbins from three yards out with 11:22 remaining in the half. ETBU got going after that, with Oehlschlaeger finding Tyler Simmons for a 7-yard touchdown pass to cap an impressive 13-play, 79-yard drive to make it 17-7. Fields drilled a 26-yard field goal for HSU with 1:50 left in the half, but the Tigers answered on Kyle Pope’s 37-yarder with 38 seconds left to make it 20-10 at halftime. The Cowboys poured it on in the second half however, picking off four Oehlschlaeger passes in the final 30 minutes. Feaster threw touchdown passes to Derrick Grant, Robbins and Mychal Carrillo to make it 40-10 before ETBU closed the scoring with a safety in the final two minutes of the game. ETBU rushed for 156 yards on 32 attempts as a team, with Jair Stover leading the way with 97 yards on 19 carries. Corey George added 38 yards on 10 carries. Oehlchlaeger was 15-of-33 for 163 yards and a touchdown, with the five picks. Josh Hickman caught four passes for 49 yards, and Jari Brooks hauled in three receptions for 43 yards. Feaster finished the game 23-of-33 for 300 yards and four touchdowns, and he was picked off twice. The Cowboys were led on the ground by Grant’s 87 yards, with seven different ballcarriers helping HSU churn out 175 yards on the ground. Carrillo caught nine passes for 94 yards and a score, while Robbins finished with 89 yards on five catches and two touchdowns.

ETBU turned the ball over twice in the end zone going in for potential scores, and Louisiana College’s passing game produced big plays throughout the day to give the Wildcats a 27-20 victory over the Tigers before a record Ornelas Stadium crowd. ETBU’s second loss in a row dropped the Tigers to 3-3 on the season and 3-2 in the conference. Louisiana College snapped a three-game losing streak and improved to 3-3 overall and 1-3 in the ASC. It was also just the third win for Louisiana College over ETBU in the nine games of the series between the youngest football programs in the American Southwest Conference. Both ETBU and LC started their respective modern-day programs back in 2000, and the Tigers had won six of the first eight meetings. But a first-quarter fumble at the goal line halted a sure ETBU touchdown, and a fourth-quarter interception in the end zone stopped a potential game-tying drive and allowed LC to steal its second straight win in as many trips to Ornelas Stadium – which had a record 3,370 fans in attendance Saturday on ETBU’s homecoming. The Wildcats’ wide-open passing attack helped LC build a 20-0 lead midway through the second quarter, with quarterback Derek Lewis hooking up with three different receivers for touchdowns. Two of those were for 58 yards or more, including an 87-yard scoring pass from Lewis to LaMarcus Preston. The big plays helped LC finish with 438 yards of total offense, with Lewis completing 27 of 43 passes for 382 yards and three touchdowns. The Tiger defense had its moments against the aerial attack, stopping the Wildcats on downs inside the 20 just before halftime and also intercepting a pass inside the 5-yard line when it appeared LC was moving in for another score on the first drive of the third quarter. ETBU’s offense, meanwhile, produced 409 total yards and was extremely balanced – with 190 coming on the ground and another 219 through the air. It was the most passing yards the Tigers had generated since the opener at Saint John’s, but ETBU killed itself Saturday with turnovers, losing two fumbles and a costly interception. ETBU took the opening kickoff and marched 63 yards on 10 plays, and appeared to take the early lead when quarterback Stephen Oehlschlaeger dumped a pass to fullback Tyler Simmons, who raced toward the goal line. But Simmons was stripped of the ball at the goal line, and LC’s Kendale Rayford picked the ball up in the end zone and brought it back out to the 24. An unsportsmanlike conduct penalty against the Tigers moved the ball out to the 40, and two plays later, Lewis hooked up with Jordan Rideaux for a 58-yard touchdown pass and the Wildcats were up 7-0 with 8:37 left in the first quarter. The Tigers’ Trevor Cavness fumbled the ensuing kickoff, and LC recovered at the Tiger 32. But the ETBU defense stiffened and the Wildcats were forced to punt. Louisiana College took a 13-0 lead in the second quarter, when Preston got behind the Tiger secondary and raced 87 yards with a catch for a touchdown. After forcing a punt on ETBU’s next possession, the Wildcats tacked on another score when Lewis hit Taylor Huffman from 6 yards out to cap an 11-play, 80-yard drive for a 20-0 lead. ETBU answered with its first points of the day, as Oehlschlaeger hit Fred Taylor with a 49yard touchdown pass to make it 20-7 going into halftime. After Victor Flores picked off Lewis’ pass on the first drive of the second half, the Tigers’ drive stalled inside the 20. ETBU missed a golden opportunity at that point, as Kyle Pope’s 37-yard field goal attempt sailed wide left. The Tigers came right back on their next possession, as Corey George capped an 8-play, 71-yard drive with a 2-yard touchdown run to make it 20-13. The teams then traded punts until the Tigers received a gift when a low snap to LC punter John Babineaux resulted in a turnover inside the Wildcat 21. ETBU’s Jair Stover pounded out 14 yards on two straight running plays, and the Tigers were set up with a first-and-goal at the LC 7 early in the fourth quarter. But LC’s Lance Stone picked off Oehlschlaeger’s pass for tight end Nick Peoples in the end zone, and the Wildcats had dodged another bullet. LC then got some insurance on its next drive, as Lewis hit Huffman for a 49-yard pass play on 2nd-and-17 to move the ball to the ETBU 11. Two plays later, Detrick James effectively iced the game with a 13-yard scoring run to give LC a 27-13 advantage with 3:09 remaining. ETBU added a late touchdown on Oehlschlaeger’s 1-yard toss to Peoples, but the Tigers wasted precious timeouts by having to run four plays to score after moving the ball inside the LC 1. The final scoring play came on fourth down, and ETBU’s ensuing onside kick was recovered by LC.

Nov. 1, 2008 • Ornelas Stadium • Marshall, TX

ETBU 24, MISSISSIPPI COLLEGE 21

ETBU overcame a fourth-quarter deficit on the road and turned back Mississippi College, 24-21, at Robinson-Hale Stadium. The Tigers (4-3 overall, 4-2 in the American Southwest Conference) solidified sole possession of third place in the league with the victory, which spoiled homecoming for the Choctaws (2-5, 2-3). It also snapped a two-game losing streak by ETBU while giving the Tigers a fourgame winning streak against Mississippi College in Clinton. ETBU rushed for 257 yards against the Choctaws, with sophomore tailback Jair Stover doing most of the damage with a season-high 159 yards on 24 carries. Stover scored the game’s go-ahead touchdown for ETBU with a 46-yard scamper to paydirt with 12:29 remaining in the game. Freshman Trevor Cavness saw his most extensive action of the season and finished with 88 yards on just eight carries, including a 51-yard dart on a 3rd-and-11 play with 2:05 remaining, that provided the game-winning points for ETBU. In all four of ETBU’s conference wins, the Tigers had rushed for 200 yards or more following the win over Mississippi College. The passing game wasn’t exactly non-existent for ETBU, however. Sophomore quarterback Stephen Oehlschlaeger turned in his second straight solid performance by completing 12 of 22 passes for 150 yards and a big touchdown, a 44-yard strike to sophomore Jari Brooks with 4:53 to go in the first half. That score helped the Tigers move to within 14-10 at halftime after falling behind 14-3 in the first half. Brooks had his most productive day of the season, catching five passes for 74 yards. ETBU took a 3-0 lead late in the first half when Kyle Pope connected from 27 yards out, capping a 5-play, 16-yard drive that was set up when Tigers linebacker Michael Uvalle recovered a Desmond Mays fumble at the Choctaw 25. Mississippi College then scored the game’s next 14 points, first on a 5-yard touchdown run by Kevin Robinson and then 40-yard touchdown pass from Tommy Reyer to Renard Ellis. Trailing 14-3, ETBU took over at its own 18 with 7:49 left in the half. Oehlschlaeger connected with fullback Tyler Simmons twice on passes that covered 39 yards, setting the Tigers up at the Choctaw 44. Oehlschlaeger then hit Brooks for ETBU’s first touchdown of the game. The teams played a scoreless third quarter before things got interesting the fourth. Stover gave ETBU the lead at 17-14 with his long touchdown run, and Mississippi College came right back with a drive deep into ETBU territory. On fourth down from the 24, Reyer’s pass was picked off at the Tiger 5 by Anquanius Frazier, preserving the lead. ETBU moved the ball out near midfield on runs by Stover and Cavness, but the drive stalled to force a punt. MC got the ball back with 8:23 remaining, but Reyer fumbled on a 4th-and-1 from midfield. Two plays later Cavness sprinted ahead with the Tigers’ final touchdown of the night. MC added a quick score three plays after the ensuing kickoff, however, on another pass from Reyer to Ellis. ETBU recovered the onside kick, though, inside the final minute to seal the win. ETBU’s defense kept the Choctaws in check most of the night, allowing 369 yards of total offense but forcing three huge turnovers. Uvalle led the unit with eight tackles, with Austin Sturrock and Brandon Stumon adding six stops apiece.

MARY HARDIN-BAYLOR 27, ETBU 6

Ninth-ranked Mary Hardin-Baylor outscored ETBU 17-0 after halftime and held the Tigers to just 19 yards rushing on the way to a 27-6 victory in Ornelas Stadium. The game was the home finale of the season for ETBU (4-4, 4-3), with the Tigers set to close the season with two road games in the next two weeks. UMHB (7-1, 6-0) was coming off a 40-28 non-conference loss to Southern Oregon, but the Cru jumped back into ASC play by winning their 27th straight conference outing. After beating the Tigers, UMHB hadn’t lost a game to an ASC opponent since the first month of the 2005 season. The Cru defense totally snuffed out an ETBU running game that had posted 200 rushing yards or more in each of its four victories on the season. The Tigers actually gained 56 yards on the ground, but a net loss of 37 yards – mostly coming on three big sacks – put the net total at 19. However, the ETBU defense kept the Tigers within striking distance by forcing turnovers. UMHB put the ball on the ground a total of seven times on the day, and the Tigers came away with four of them. But UMHB scored two touchdowns in the second half off two ETBU turnovers to pull away to the victory, its fifth straight and eighth in nine tries against the Tigers. ETBU didn’t get a first down in the game until nearly eight minutes remained until halftime. The Tigers finished with a season-low six first downs on the day. UMHB, without the services of Preseason Offensive Player of the Year Quincy Daniels at running back since an injury ended his season in week two, went with a back-by-committee approach that saw nine different players attempt at least two carries. Bryson Tucker, a starter on defense through the first seven games, got the start at tailback and churned out 138 yards on 18 carries with one touchdown to lead the charge. Overall, UMHB rushed for 298 yards on the day, to finish with 410 yards of total offense. ETBU was held to just 140. The Cru got on the board first with a 45-yard field goal with 4:24 left in the first quarter by Alan Munoz. Matt Hurst tacked on a 4-yard touchdown run on third down with just under 10 minutes to go in the half, giving UMHB a 10-0 lead. The Tiger offense put some points on the board with 1:23 remaining, as Kyle Pope drilled a 37-yard field goal to pull within 10-3. Tucker fumbled the ensuing kickoff and gave the ball to ETBU at the UMHB 18, but a three-and-out forced the Tigers to settle for a 36-yard field goal from Pope that made it 10-6 at intermission. UMHB took control of the game in the first five minutes of the second half. Quarterback Josh Saenz, who didn’t start the game but entered to start the third quarter, broke free on the second play of the quarter for a 59-yard run to set up Josh Landrum’s 3-yard burst for a 17-6 lead. The Cru’s Ben Beckworth then picked off a Stephen Oehlschlaeger pass on the Tigers’ second play of the half, returning it inside the ETBU 10. The Tiger defense stiffened and held the Cru to just a 22-yard field goal from Munoz, but the lead had ballooned to 20-6 with 10:55 to go in the third. UMHB put the game away in the fourth quarter when Tucker sprinted 18 yards up the middle for a touchdown with 8:35 remaining.

The 2008 Tiger seniors lead the team out for the coin toss in the home finale against Mary Hardin-Baylor.

AZUSA PACIFIC 33, ETBU 21

Nov. 8, 2008 • Cougar Stadium • Azusa, CA

Three turnovers, a blocked punt and an inability to get off the field on third down were a dangerous combination against ETBU on a rare late-season, non-conference trip to southern California in November, as the Tigers dropped a 33-21 loss to Asuza Pacific in southern California. The loss dropped ETBU to 4-5 on the season with the loss, while Azusa Pacific, a member of the NAIA, completed its season with only its second win of the year. Both wins for the Cougars (2-8) came against NCAA Division III opponents. The Cougars scored what would be the permanent go-ahead touchdown with six seconds left in the first half to go up 13-7 at the break. Azusa then added two quick second-half touchdowns to go up 26-7, and the Tigers were fighting uphill the entire second half. ETBU battled back to within 33-21 in the fourth quarter, and had the ball at the Azusa 5 with just over three minutes left. But quarterback Stephen Oehlshlaeger’s pass was picked off in the end zone to end the threat, and the Cougars then ran out the clock to complete the win. Overall the Cougars outgained the Tigers by only 44 yards, 387-343. Quarterback John Van Den Raadt had a big day for Azusa, completing 19 of 29 for 245 yards and three touchdowns. The success in the passing game had a big part in the Cougars’ ability to keep drives alive on third down, as APU finished the game by converting 9 of 14 third-downs on the day. The Cougars’ first score of the day came when APU blocked a Brandon Stephens punt in the first quarter to set up a 10-yard touchdown drive. ETBU sophomore Jari Brooks kept the game close late by being a big downfield target. The redshirt sophomore wideout caught a career-high eight passes for 147 yards and a touchdown. Sophomore running back Corey George gave the Tigers solid production on the ground, churning out 92 yards on 18 carries and a touchdown. ETBU headed into the offseason on a high note with its first-ever win over Howard Payne in Brownwood, 35-21. game ten

The Gordon Wood Stadium gorilla is finally off ETBU’s back. The Tigers closed out the 2008 season with their first win over Howard Payne in Brownwood’s Gordon Wood Stadium in five tries, scoring touchdowns in all three phases of the game on the way to a 35-21 victory. The win gave ETBU its second straight 5-5 season, and it’s the sixth time in the nine years of the program the Tigers have finished with at least five victories. The win also gave the Tigers (5-5 overall, 5-3 conference) their highest finish (third place) in the American Southwest Conference since finishing in a three-way tie for the conference title in 2003. It was by no means an easy victory , however. The Tigers gave up 244 passing yards to the Yellow Jackets (2-8, 1-7) and were limited to just 65 passing yards offensively. But ETBU churned out 226 yards on the ground and scored touchdowns on offense, defense and special teams to cap the win. After a scoreless first quarter, Howard Payne got on the board first with a 12-yard touchdown pass from Johnathan Haddock to Trevor Kleine with 13:45 remaining in the first half. ETBU answered with a five-play, 49-yard drive that finished on Corey George’s 1-yard touchdown plunge. Howard Payne answered with an 18-yard pass from Zach Hubbard to Tre Mason for a 14-7 lead, but the Tigers came right back on the ensuing kickoff with a 62-yard touchdown return by Anquanius Frazier. The extra point was missed, and ETBU trailed 14-13 with 2:30 remaining in the second quarter. ETBU took the lead just before halftime on George’s 1-yard run set up by back-to-back 13yard bursts by Jair Stover. George then added the two-point conversion to give ETBU a 21-14 lead at the break. The Tigers never trailed after that. Defensive end Brad Wallace scooped up a fumble and scored to give the Tigers a 28-14 lead early in the third quarter, and safety Chris Cratty picked off Hubbard later in the quarter to set up George’s third touchdown of the day, a 17-yard burst that gave the Tigers a commanding 35-14 advantage with 4:14 to go in the third. HPU tacked on a 59-yard pass from Hubbard to Mason late in the third, but ETBU kept the Yellow Jackets out of the end zone the rest of the way. Stover finished with 152 yards on 23 carries for ETBU, while George added 78 yards on 19 totes with the three touchdowns. The Tigers ground game was so effective, ETBU attempted just one pass the entire second half. It was also the fifth time in conference play – all five wins – in which ETBU has rushed for over 200 yards. Senior linebacker Brandon Stumon finished his career with a career-high 15 tackles to lead the defense.

ETBU ATHLETICS Kent Reeves DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS B.S.E., John Brown University M.S.E., Arkansas State University

Kent Reeves completed his 12th year as full-time athletic director at East Texas Baptist University in 2008-09. Since stepping down as the all-time winningest coach in Lady Tiger basketball in 1997 to become full-time AD, Reeves has guided ETBU’s transformation from NAIA and NCAA Division II status to full membership within NCAA Division III. Under his watch, the program has ballooned to 10 varsity sports from the five that existed when he became athletic director on June 1, 1997. “We’ve added football, men’s and women’s soccer, softball and men’s cross country, and we’re looking to add men’s and women’s tennis,” says Reeves when looking back over his first decade as athletic director. “I’d say another one of hte real positive things I’m proud we’ve been able to accomplish is that we have also built some first-class athletic facilities as well as making nice upgrades to our existing facilities.” Reeves joined the ETBU coaching staff in 1987 as the head coach for women’s basketball. Taking over a program that was 10 years old at the time, Reeves quickly built an NAIA national title contender that averaged over 20 wins per season in his decade on the bench. In his 10 seasons as head women’s basketball coach, Reeves posted 206 wins and his teams won five Big State Conference championships and made nine postseason appearances. He stepped down following the 1996-97 season to become the university’s full-time athletic director while also taking on another challenge. As part of the university’s expansion of the athletic program, Reeves agreed to also become the head coach of a softball program that would begin play in the spring of 1998 as a member of the Heart of Texas Conference. His first recruiting class produced an eventual six All-Americans over the next four years, and Reeves piled up 83 wins in three full seasons as head softball coach. In his third season, in 2000, the Lady Tigers won the first American Southwest Conference championship in the history of ETBU athletics since the university had become a member of the ASC and Division III in 1998. Following that season, Reeves gave up coaching to focus on his athletic director duties. Football was added in the fall of 2000, along with men’s and cross country, giving ETBU 10 varsity athletic sports. When Reeves arrived at ETBU in 1987 as women’s basketball coach, only three programs -- men’s and women’s basketball, and baseball -- existed on campus. But in his first four years as athletic director, the university had added softball, women’s soccer, men’s and women’s cross country and football. Reeves went back into coaching in 2004, when he had to step in and take over the softball program once more due to a mid-year coaching change. Taking over a senior-laden program that had won the ASC championship every year since he’d left, Reeves coached the Lady Tigers to a school-record 41 wins as well as helping ETBU attain its first-ever No. 1 national ranking in any sport. He also guided the Lady Tigers to a fifth straight conference championship that season. He immediately stepped down again following that season, but came back to take over the program for a third time in the summer of 2005. After coaching the softball team in 2006 and 2007, Reeves once again took off his coaching hat to assume athletic director-only duties. However, in his six total seasons in the dugout, Reeves compiled a 183-84-1 mark and is now the university’s all-time winningest coach in two different sports. Reeves is also very active in the Marshall community, serving vice president of the Marshall Lions Club as well as serving as a deacon at Central Baptist Church. In his time away from the office, he enjoys playing golf, fishing and working in his yard. Reeves received his Bachelor of Science in Education from John Brown University and also holds a Master of Science in Education from Arkansas State University. Kent and his wife, Mary Beth, have two daughters, Kendra and Taylor. Taylor is a sophomore at Baylor University, while Kendra is married to Austin Skipworth.

Ornelas Stadium provides ETBU with one of the top game-day facilities in all of NCAA Division III football. Opened just in time for ETBU’s return to intercollegiate football in 2000, Ornelas Stadium stands as one of the shining landmarks on the north end of the ETBU campus. The Ornelas family of Tyler provided the gift which made the stadium possible. The facility was constructed with lightning speed beginning soon after ETBU announced late in 1998 it was bringing back its football program following a 50-year absence in time for the 2000 season. Beginning in December of 1999, the stadium was literally carved out of the East Texas earth, surrounded by the area’s trademark pine trees. As part of the stadium’s unique

ORNELAS STADIUM

features, the field is surrounded by a bowl-shaped design that includes a raised grandstand above ground level. On both sides of the grandstand are to sloped hillsides that accomodate fans in lawn chairs, blankets, etc., for a comfortable, relaxing game-day experience. The Tigers enter the field from the east side of Carlile-Howell Field House, with a path to the field winding through fans and students gathered in the south end zone. Students gather on game day in the south end zone and also take advantage of grassy areas to be as close to the field as possible, putting the crowd up close to the action and further enhancing the college football atmosphere. At full capacity, Ornelas Stadium has a listed

capacity of 3,000, with a seating capacity of just over 2,000 in the grandstand bleachers. There are 22 seats designated for handicapped seating, and a section of 278 railback seats sits just below the twostory press box with a great view from the 50-yard line. With standing room only and general admission access to the hillsides and end zone areas, the Tigers can play in front of well over 3,000 fans. The Texas Turfgrass Association named Ornelas Stadium as the 2006-07 Football Field of the Year, as a result of the work put in by ETBU head athletics groundskeeper Randy Hicks and his staff. Future plans for the stadium include the construction of a visitor’s side grandstand, which would also include concession stands, storage areas, etc.

CARLILE-HOWELL COMPLEX Carlile-Howell Hall once served as home for ETBU’s physical facilities and public relations department. It is now provides a first-class home for Tiger football, as Carlile-Howell Field House. ETBU’s football program moved into the renovated facility in August of 2000, just weeks before the team’s official return to the field after a 50-year absence. As part of the project that included the construction of Ornelas Stadium, the former CarlileHowell Hall was renovated to become ETBU’s football fieldhouse. The facility includes offices, a meeting/conference area for coaches, two locker rooms, an equipment room, a training room and a weight room. The renovation of the fieldhouse took first priority over the construction of Ornelas Stadium, actually, during plans for both to be ready in time for the 2000 football season. Both projects were done simultaneously, but Ornelas Stadium wasn’t quite ready for football until a month into the Tigers’ first season. But the team did have a place to dress, meet and plan workouts because the fieldhouse and practice facility were finished a few weeks before the first ETBU football team in 50 years arrived on campus. The result of the fieldhouse project includes a large foyer area which serves as a welcoming place for Tiger fans. There are two large offices for assistant coaches -- one for offense, one for defense

-- as well as an office for the program’s recruiting coordinator. The defensive coordinator also has a private office. The main football office is located just inside the front door of the facility, and it is connected to a head coach’s office/suite. The front office also includes a kitchen area as well as a work/copy space. The coaches also have a private locker room in the facility as well. Tiger coaches conduct game-planning sessions and meetings inside a large conference room just off the main foyer. On the other side of the foyer is a weight room that has undergone a major renovation the last two years, with new equipment and a sound

system installed. The Tigers dress in a large locker room facility on the east side of the building, while visitors have a separate dressing room on the west side. ETBU’s athletic training department has a large training room just inside the west entrance to the building, which includes an office for the athletic trainer. Down the hall from the training room is a game-day dressing room for officials. The north end of the building contains a large equipment/storage room, which also includes washer and dryer units. The facility has convenient access to both the stadium and practice fields, which are located behind the building.

FACILITIES

Ornelas Gymnasium

Cornish Field

BASKETBALL/VOLLEYBALL

SOCCER

ETBU’s “House of Blues” has been home to the university’s basketball and volleyball programs since 1995, when the facility was constructed with a gift from the Ornelas family of Tyler, Texas. As part of the complex that includes Ornelas Gym, the Dean Healthplex houses state-of-the-art equipment for physical fitness such as treadmills, stationary bicycles, stairmasters and both free and machine weightlifting stations, along with four racquetball courts. Ornelas Gym has three levels of seating extending to the gym floor, with ETBU students allowed on the floor bleachers across from the ETBU bench, to give the home fans a nice, up-close view of the action.

ETBU’s soccer complex was christened Cornish Field in the fall of 2007 after having served as the home for the university’s soccer programs since 2002. Improvements to the facility in 2008, made possible by a gift from Hal and Joyce Cornish, included installation of permanent bleacher seating, concrete walkways, a retaining wall that allows fans to bring their own lawn chairs to enjoy the games, and a wrought-iron decorative fence on the south side of the field. The entrance was also bricked with a decorative archway bearing the new name of the facility. Lights were added in 2005 by Mr. Randy Adair in honor of his daughter, Brooke, who played four years at ETBU from 2000-03.

Taylor Field

Woods Field

SOFTBALL

BASEBALL

Taylor Field is the home to ETBU’s softball program, which returned to national prominence last spring by being chosen to host the 2009 NCAA Division III West Regional. The Lady Tigers won their first ASC East championship in five years and spent time ranked at No. 1 in the nation, finishing at No. 8 in the final poll. Earlier this decade, ETBU put together a string of five ASC championships, which still remains the most by any program in the conference. The facility began as a give from Earl and Louise Taylor and was constructed in time for ETBU’s first season of softball in 1998. The facility was upgraded in 2005 with a gift from Welby C. Edwards, with installation of a new two-story pressbox that also included a Lady Tiger locker room, brick dugouts and landscaping. New lights were added prior to last season, along with a permanent metal outfield wall.

Woods Field has been home to ETBU’s baseball program since its inception back in the mid-1960s, and the facility has received several upgrades over the years with more still to come. The latest of the upgrades was the installation of lights just prior to the 2008 season that allowed for the first nighttime baseball in the history of the program. The addition of lights was made possible by a gift from Mr. J. Lloyd Woods of Tenaha, with the first night game being played on Feb. 8, 2008. Since head coach Sam Blackmon arrived to the program prior to the 2007 season, upgrades to the park include remodeling of the Tiger bullpen with construction and landscaping, as well as additions and improvements to the outdoor batting cages. The park’s location, in the middle of ETBU’s campus, provides a wide-ranging scenic view of the campus beyond the outfield wall.

Marshall V I S I T I N G

“A Texas Treasure”

East Texas Bap�st University is located in Marshall, Texas, an historic city of 25,000 nestled in the scenic piney woods of East Texas. It is part of a larger metropolitan area of Longview, Texas, and Shreveport, Louisiana, and is located 150 miles east of Dallas, on Interstate 20. Marshall is in the center of a recrea�onal and tourist region, and is near the Caddo Lake recrea�onal area. The city itself was founded in 1841, and by 1850, it was the seventh-largest city in Texas. A�er the 1860 census, Marshall had risen to fourth largest in the state, in the most prosperous county in Texas. A�er the Civil War, the city becane known as “Gateway to Texas,” when the Texas and Pacific Railroad provided transcon�nental railway service to the west. Marshall’s renaissance was due largely to the vast expansion of the T & P opera�ons which brought an enormous influx of new se�lers and railroad employees, including many skilled cra�smen and ar�sans for the railroad’s sprawling shops. The 1901 Harrison County Courthouse is the third government structure to occupy the square of land donated in 1841 for a “Temple of Jus�ce” by Marshall founder Peter Whetstone. Marshall is surrounded by natural beauty, just minutes away from historic Caddo Lake and the majes�c Lake O’ The Pines. The city is also home to three major fes�vals annually -- Stagecoach Days, held the third weekend in May; FireAnt Fes�val, held the second weekend in October; and the world-famous Wonderland of Lights, which is held from Thanksgiving through New Year’s Day. For more informa�on about Marshall and what the city has to offer, check out the Marshall Chamber of Commerce website at www.marshall-chamber.com.
