EUREKA COLLEGE INFORMATION THIS IS EUREKA COLLEGE Eureka College is a family. A small family. Our historic campus, located on 112 wooded acres in the heart of Central Illinois, can best be described as charming and friendly. Our focus on a comprehensive liberal arts education, with major emphasis on leadership and service to others, is one-of-a-kind. Our proximity to Peoria, Bloomington-Normal, Chicago, St. Louis, and Indianapolis make us ideal for those looking for major market facilities, yet like to return to a safe, secure, and small town environment.

THE FOUNDING OF EUREKA COLLEGE Eureka College was founded by abolitionists from Kentucky who were members of a religious movement known as the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and were committed to providing young people a liberal education. These pioneers believed in an education infused with values as a basis for leadership. Chartered by the Illinois Legislature in 1855, Eureka was the first college in the state and third in the nation to admit men and women on an equal basis. To the present day, the college has continued to be interested in the development of character as well as intellect and technical competence with emphasis on service and leadership.

“Eureka, of course, is a Greek word that means I have found it and it described perfectly the sense of discovery I felt the day I arrived here in the fall of 1928. Eureka was everything I had dreamed it would be and more.” -- Ronald Reagan ‘32 40th President of the United States

HOW SMALL IS SMALL? Eureka College has just under 800 students. Is this a disadvantage? On the contrary -- we view it as an amazing advantage. David Everett’s (1769–1813) line, “...large streams from little fountains flow, tall oaks from little acorns grow “ rings true at Eureka. Each of those lucky enough to become a part of Eureka College and our traditions find themselves supported, encouraged, and treated, not as a number...but as the extraordinary and creative individuals they are.

President of the United States, serving as doctors, lawyers, teachers, and heads of non-profit organizations around the globe.

EUREKA COLLEGE INFORMATION Center; center of campus community life. We encourage personal development socially, interpersonally, and morally through student engagement. Providing programming, campus activities, and resources we strive to cultivate holistic student growth and development and in turn support the mission of Eureka College. The Donald B. Cerf Center is a focal point of campus activity, housing the “Burgoo“ -- the campus snack bar -- and the College Bookstore. The Cerf Center also houses the Ronald W. Reagan Museum. It is frequently the site of public and private events.

ABOUT THE FACULTY Eureka College faculty play a pivotal role in working toward the success of each and every EC student. The College has an average class size of fifteen students and a student-faculty ratio of 12:1. Many faculty have earned national and international recognition in their areas of scholarship, such as: social responses to alcoholism, the history of slavery; recognition in lepidoptery, philosophy, Native American literature; and individually recognized Fulbright Scholarship recipients.

SIMPLY PUT Eureka College is one of the best educational experiences that a prospective student can have. Eureka College is a remarkable family, populated with some of the finest, dedicated, caring individuals in the world. Over 150 years of excellence in learning, service, and leadership is our guiding force. Unfortunately, the College simply cannot accommodate everyone. Entrance is limited. This opportunity should not be allowed to slip by.

THE PRESIDENT’S WELCOME On behalf of all Eureka College students, faculty, staff, alumni and trustees, I am pleased to welcome you to Eureka College. We are happy to have you on campus as we observe our 158th year of excellence in learning, leadership and service. Athletics play an important role in the lives of students at Eureka College. Nearly half of our students play a sport at the intercollegiate level and most other students participate at the intramural level. Athletic teams are integral to the educational process, providing means to learn leadership, discipline, tenacity, persistence and cooperation. I am proud of the student-athletes that you are watching today. They are wonderful ambassadors for Eureka College, and their efforts exemplify learning outside of the classroom, developing teamwork and building school spirit. J. David Arnold, Ph.D. President of the College

THE REAGAN INFLUENCE They were simply known as Dutch and Moon, nicknames passed down from their father. Ron was thought to have resembled “the Dutchman” while Neil looked like comic strip character “Moon Mullins” with his slicked back hair. The names stuck. During his four years at Eureka, Reagan demonstrated his gratitude by immersing himself in the life of the College. He even convinced his older brother Neil to enroll in the fall of 1928, creating the enviable situation of his older brother waiting on him as a pledge at the TKE house. Ronald Reagan graduated in 1932 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in social science and economics. He moved to Davenport, Iowa, to accept a position as a sports announcer for radio station WOC. His career led him on to Hollywood and then into state and national politics, but his loyalty to Eureka College was evidenced by his three six-year terms on the College’s Board of Trustees and his continual involvement in various college related events. In his 1992 Commencement address, President Reagan related the experience of the class of 1932. “We took with us from Eureka College the strength born of a spirit of fellowship, willingness to work together for common goals, and a deep faith in the word of God.” In the case of Ronald Reagan, who graduated from Eureka in the early years of the Depression, those values propelled him to a lifetime of leadership. From sports broadcaster, to actor, to politician, Dutch Reagan’s four years of personal development at Eureka launched him into a lifetime of leadership.

Nearly 300 Eureka College students participate in athletics. A total of 27 student-athletes earned their degrees in May 2012.

PETE FioRITO STADIUM AT McKINZIE FIELD

PETE FioRITO STADIUM AT McKINZIE FIELD The Eureka College football team calls Pete FioRito Stadium at McKinzie Field its home. Regularly boasting high attendance numbers and a festive gameday atmosphere, Saturday afternoons in the fall at McKinzie Field have long been the marquee attraction and experience of Eureka College athletics. Opened in 1930, the natural grass playing field is named after legendary Eureka student-athlete and coach Ralph McKinzie. McKinzie starred for the Eureka football squad in the early 1920s, earning allconference accolades as a halfback. McKinzie, who also played as an allconference performer for the EC basketball squad, was inducted into the NAIA Hall of Fame in 1963.

14, 2006. FioRito starred as a defensive back and team captain for the Red Devils during the 1970s. He was a member of the 1977 squad that set what was then a school record with seven victories and was inducted into the Eureka College athletics Hall of Fame in 2006. FioRito’s fundraising efforts prior to his death raised money for renovations at the facility, as well as scholarships for Eureka College students.

installed behind the visiting bleachers along the east boundary of the stadium.

In the summer of 2011, Eureka began “The McKinzie Project” to renovate several aspects of the facility. Construction crews broke ground in early August 2011 to install a 4-foot brick wall that runs along Reagan Drive at the north boundary of the facility. A new chain-link fence and windscreen were

The Red Devils enjoyed tremendous success on their home field during their run as an NAIA national powerhouse in the 1990s. Eureka posted a 29-21 record at home during the decade, including a perfect 5-0 mark in 1991 and back-to-back 4-1 home records in 1994 and 1995.

Prior to “The McKinzie Project”, the stadium received a new and improved look in the summer of 2006 with the addition of an entirely renovated grandstand along the Eureka sideline and a three-room press box for game day operations and working media.

The Eureka College athletics Hall of Famer, who coached Ronald Reagan during his football playing days, is the all-time wins leader in Eureka football history, guiding the Red Devils to 36 victories between 1921 and 1937. McKinzie returned to Eureka after his retirement and remained on staff as a volunteer football assistant coach until the 1989 season. Former Eureka football player Pete FioRito, who passed away from cancer at age 45 in 2003, had his name placed on the Since 2009 under head coach Kurt Barth, the Red Devils have won six home games stadium during a halftime ceremony on Oct. and recorded their first four-game home win streak since 1997.

DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS PAUL BRYANT

DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS PAUL BRYANT Paul Bryant will enter his fifth year as the Director of Athletics at Eureka College in the fall of 2012. Since Bryant arrived at the helm of Eureka’s athletic department in the summer of 2008, the Red Devils have experienced unprecedented success on the playing field and in the classroom. After only two Eureka squads qualified for the St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference postseason from 2006 through 2009, the Red Devils have qualified for six SLIAC Tournaments in Bryant’s four years as Director of Athletics, including championship game appearances by men’s basketball in 2010 and women’s basketball in 2012. In all, five of Eureka’s nine eligible programs have played in the SLIAC Tournament during Bryant’s tenure, including multiple appearances from men’s basketball (2010, 2012). In addition to the strides the Red Devils have made on the playing field, Bryant has also placed a significant emphasis on academics, creating the Director of Athletics Honor Roll prior to the 2009-10 academic year. A record-high 81 student athletes were named to the A.D. Honor Roll in Spring 2010, while Eureka is represented on a regular basis on the SLIAC and Upper Midwest Athletic Conference All-Academic Teams. Eureka earned a total of 27 academic all-conference selections during the 2011-12 year, and five student-athletes to earn the award participated in more than one sport. Bryant has also made tremendous use of Eureka’s celebrated athletics history, welcoming a pair of Eureka College Hall of Famers back to the athletics staff as head coaches. On Dec. 4, 2008, Bryant hired 1998 EC graduate Kurt Barth to direct the Eureka football program. Barth, who starred on the gridiron for the Red Devils from 1994 through 1997, has rapidly made his mark on the Red Devils. Barth has coached Eureka to its most successful three-season stretch in more than a decade and posted the best 30-game debut by a Eureka football coach since 1997. Barth’s influence has also allowed the Red Devils to produce record-breaking statistics on the playing field, as Eureka has broken 14 team and individual program records since his arrival in 2009. Nearly one year later to the day after Barth’s arrival, Bryant chose Eureka icon Craig Gerdes as the new head coach of the baseball squad on Dec. 1, 2009. Gerdes promptly guided to the Red Devils to a program-record 19 victories and their first-ever appearance in the SLIAC Tournament in 2010. The effort earned Gerdes SLIAC Coach of the Year honors. The 1971

DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS PAUL BRYANT Eureka graduate won 31 games in two seasons as head coach prior to his retirement in 2011. Bryant has spearheaded several projects to improve Eureka’s on-campus facilities. In June 2011, Bryant secured the funding for the purchase and installation of a new hardwood floor in the Reagan Center. The surface, formerly used as a practice floor by the NBA’s Minnesota Timberwolves, gives Eureka a regulation hardwood floor for basketball and volleyball for the first time since 2008. In addition to the hardwood floor, two new state-of-the-art Nevco scoreboards were installed in the arena in December 2010, and new shot clocks were installed in June 2012. The latest facilities improvement under Bryant’s watch was “The McKinzie Project”. A permanent brick wall was installed at the Red Devils’ football facility along Reagan Drive in addition to improvements to the visiting bleachers and the installation of a new fence behind the visitors’ sideline. A native of Dayton, Ohio, Bryant was formerly Associate Director of Athletics at Urbana University in Urbana, Ohio. In addition to his administrative duties at UU, Bryant served as the men’s basketball head coach for five seasons. While guiding the Blue Knights, Bryant was chosen as the American Mideast South Division Coach of the Year and American Mideast Conference Coach of the Year. Before coaching at Urbana, Bryant began his coaching career at the collegiate level during the 1996-97 season as a men’s basketball assistant coach at Sinclair Community College in Dayton, Ohio. He went on to become the head coach at Sinclair the following season, directing the Pride for six seasons from 1997 until 2003. During his six seasons, Bryant won 88 games, led Sinclair to four NJCAA Division II regional appearances, two national tournament berths and a national runner-up finish in 1998. He was named the Great Lakes Region Coach of the Year. While in Dayton, Bryant also served for eight years as the CEO of the community’s Learn to Lead youth services agency, where he licensed foster parents and placed foster children in appropriate homes.

2012 SEASON PREVIEW The Eureka College football team will enter its 109th season of football competition in 2012. Under the direction of fourth-year head coach Kurt Barth, the Red Devils will begin their fourth season as an associate member of the Upper Midwest Athletic Conference.

OFFENSE Eureka returns a large group of offensive starters from an offensive unit that has led the UMAC in passing yardage the previous three seasons. Senior quarterback Sam Durley will lead the offense for the fourth consecutive season. The Roanoke, Ill. native has earned All-UMAC Second Team accolades in each of the previous two seasons and is on the verge of breaking a handful of program records in 2012.

freshmen. Dawson ran for 592 yards last season, his first as a starter. Freshmen Zach McCoy will also likely see a handful of carries. The Eureka receiving corps will have to replace departed All-Americans Wes Schmidgall and Alex Hess, but plenty of firepower returns for the UMAC’s most dangerous air attack.

The offensive line will boast loads of experience in 2012. Four starters are back, including four-year seniors Jon Deedrick and Mike Gruninger. Juniors Alex Anderson and D.T. Thornton will also start up front for the second consecutive season, while Illinois College transfer J.R. Lester is likely to fill the fifth spot to begin the campaign.

DEFENSE Four-year senior Matt Dawson will anchor the group after breaking out for 44 receptions for 520 yards last season. He also made four touchdown catches. Junior Cody Followell also returns after emerging as an aerial threat last fall and snagging a pair of touchdowns in EC victories last season. Senior Jordan Jefferson will start at tight end.

A new but familiar face will help bolster the EC passing game in 2012. Senior Jordan Durley ranks second in Eureka football Kindred, who has starred as a member of history with 365 completions, 5,359 passing the Eureka men’s basketball team since yards and 43 passing touchdowns. He 2008, will join the football team and likely needs 58 completions, 186 passing yards be a part of the starting lineup. and two passing touchdowns to break each Eureka career record held by former Returning lettermen D’Anthony Doss teammate Nick Lindsey (2006-09). and Jake Bane will join newcomer Jake Rutherford in providing depth at the In the backfield, the Red Devils will return position. their leading rusher from the previous season for the first time in nearly a decade, as junior Corey Dawson will headline a group of running backs that includes four

Nine starters return for a Red Devil defense that continued to make strides in 2011. Junior linebacker Jacob Carls returns after compiling 87 tackles to earn All-UMAC Second Team accolades. In addition to his presence against the run game, Carls enters his junior campaign as the active Eureka leader with four career interceptions. Carls will be joined by two familiar faces at linebacker, as classmates Frankie Bray and Drew Duffy return to give the Red Devils the same starting group of linebackers from last season. The trio combined to make 180 tackles in 2011. Up front, four-year seniors and returning starters Craig Wilson and Josh Girard will carry the load on the defensive line. They will be joined by junior defensive end Matt Stevenson, who made the successful transition from offense to defense prior to

2012 EUREKA COLLEGE FOOTBALL MEDIA GUIDE


2012 SEASON PREVIEW last season. Converted linebacker Stew McGinnis will move to defensive end and earn a majority of the snaps in 2012. Returnees Dan Bolsen, Donovan Lewis and Paul Webb will provide depth on the defensive line. Senior strong safety Murad Abbed will anchor the secondary. Abbed, who joined the football program midway through the 2009 season and missed all of 2010 with a major knee injury, made 65 tackles and snagged a team-best three interceptions last season. Junior cornerback Wes Robinson returns to the same position in 2012. He joins Abbed as the most experienced defensive backs on the roster after making 15 stops last fall. Senior Ethan Lord will make the transition from running back to start at free safety in 2012. Lord, who compiled 313 rushing yards over the previous two seasons, has also been a steady presence on EC’s special teams. Sophomore Christian Watson, who came on strong at the end of his freshman season in starts against MacMurray and St. Scholastica, will man the other cornerback spot. Senior Steve Snider, who enters his fourth collegiate campaign with 72 career tackles, will join other returning lettermen Jacob Blackard, Aaron Frazier and Ben Mills as experienced players in the secondary.

SPECIAL TEAMS Perhaps Eureka’s most experienced unit, a pair four-year specialists will anchor the Red Devils’ special teams in 2012. One season removed from an AllUMAC Second Team selection, senior Jordan Jefferson will punt for the fourth consecutive season. His 2011 average of 37.6 yards per punt was the eighth-highest single-season average in the history of the program. Senior kicker Travis Huber is back for his fourth season as the Eureka kicker. The Morton, Ill. native has been a steady presence since his debut collegiate season in 2009 and currently ranks sixth

EUREKAREDDEVILS.COM

in program history with 121 career points scored. Huber, who already owns the career and single-season program records in extra points, needs one more field goal to take sole possession of the all-time program lead. Newcomer Tyler Schuler will likely handle long-snapping responsibilities, while Ethan Lord and Corey Dawson will return the bulk of kickoffs and punts.

SCHEDULE The Red Devils will begin the campaign on Sept. 1 on the road against Knox in the inaugural “Abraham Lincoln Bowl”, a new traveling trophy created for the longtime non-conference rivalry. The eight-game UMAC slate begins the following week when EC visits reigning league champion St. Scholastica in Duluth, Minn. Seven days later, the Red Devils will return to the state of Minnesota at Crown in St. Bonifacius, Minn. The season-opening road trip marks the first time the Red Devils will play three consecutive road games to begin the season since 1964.

HEAD COACH KURT BARTH

HEAD COACH KURT BARTH Eureka College athletics Hall of Famer Kurt Barth will enter his fourth season as the head coach of the Eureka football program in 2012. Since being hired as the 19th head coach in program history in December 2008, Barth has rejuvenated the EC football program and installed one of the most prolific passing offenses in the Upper Midwest Athletic Conference and all of NCAA Division III. Barth’s third season as head coach in 2011 may have been his most successful yet. The Red Devils opened the UMAC schedule with four consecutive victories, the best league start by a Eureka football squad since the 1995 Illini-Badger Football Conference championship season. The four-game win streak that ran from Sept. 17 through Oct. 8 marked Eureka’s longest stretch without a defeat since the Red Devils won eight in a row during Barth’s playing days in 1995-96. Additionally, Eureka earned its first-ever football victories over new league opponents Westminster and Crown in 2011, and the thrilling come-from-behind 22-18 victory over Westminster proved to be the Red Devils’ first homecoming triumph since 2002. The 2011 season also saw postseason All-America selections for graduated student-athletes Alex Hess and Wes Schmidgall. The local duo gave the Eureka football program an All-America choice for the first time since Barth himself earned All-America honors as a senior in 1997. Using the same innovative spread attack that made Barth a three-time All-American as a receiver at Eureka nearly two decades ago, the Red Devils have led the UMAC in passing offense in each of the previous three seasons. Barth’s strategies have also put a dent in the Eureka football record book, as the Red Devils have broken eight passing records since his arrival in 2009. He currently ranks ninth out of 19 head coaches in program history with 10 coaching victories and needs only four more wins to reach sixth place all-time. Only four of Eureka’s 18 previous head coaches have won 10 games faster than Barth. In addition to Eureka’s air success in the UMAC, the Red Devils have ranked in the top-50 in NCAA Division III in all three of Barth’s seasons and reached as high as 16th in the nation in passing offense in 2009. The Red Devils have eclipsed the 300-

22

Barth’s potent air attack has allowed Eureka to lead the UMAC in passing yardage for three consecutive seasons and break eight Eureka passing records.

HEAD COACH KURT BARTH yard mark through the air 10 times under Barth, including a 505-yard team performance against Crown on Nov. 7, 2009, and a 478-yard individual performance from quarterback Sam Durley at Presentation on Sept. 24, 2011. Durley’s effort, which also included a school-record eight touchdowns passes, broke a singlegame school record for passing yards and was the the fifth-highest total by a Division III quarterback during the 2011 season. While most of Eureka’s eye-popping statistics come from the offensive side of the ball, the Red Devils have also made strides defensively. Under the direction of Eureka alum and Barth’s former EC teammate Deric Linder, the Red Devils limited UMAC foe Crown to just six points in a win over the Storm on Sept. 17, 2011, the fewest points yielded in a game by a Eureka defense since the 2002 season. Less than a month later, Eureka held Martin Luther to 199 yards of total offense, the first time a Eureka defense has held its opponent under 200 total yards since the Red Devils limited former conference opponent Benedictine to 195 total yards in a 12-0 road win on Sept. 25, 1999. Barth wasted very little time making a mark on the Eureka program in his first game as head coach three years ago, leading the Red Devils to their first victory over longtime non-conference rival Knox since 1991 with a 28-13 win on Sept. 5, 2009. He directed the Red Devils to a total of 300 points in 10 games during the 2009 campaign, the fourth-highest total by a Eureka team in the 108year history of the program. Additionally, Eureka’s latest three-year record under Barth has resulted in the most successful three-season stretch in more than a decade and the best 30-game debut by a Eureka football coach since 1997 His debut season as head coach of the Red Devils in 2009 also produced a UMAC South Division Offensive Player of the Year award for graduated quarterback Nick Lindsey. That 2009 season allowed Lindsey to improve under Barth’s guidance to set the alltime Eureka records in completions, passing yards and passing touchdowns. In all, Eureka has earned 20 postseason All-UMAC selections and 17 UMAC Player of the Week awards since Barth became head coach. Barth is coaching for the third time on the Eureka staff and first time as head coach. Shortly following his record-breaking playing career for the Red Devils, Barth served as an assistant coach in 1998, then returned for his second stint on the EC staff from 2003-04 as offensive coordinator. He is a 1998 graduate of Eureka College with a B.S. in physical education and recently earned his master’s degree from the American College of Education in 2010. Perhaps the most decorated student-athlete in the history of Eureka College, the Minonk, Ill. native was a three-time NCAA Division III All-American from 1995-97 and was inducted into the Eureka College Athletics Hall of Fame in 2004. The Red Devils compiled a 26-14 record during Barth’s playing career, which included an NAIA playoff berth in 1994 and a 9-1 record in 1995 for an Illini-Badger Football Conference championship. He formed a lethal passing combination with

Eureka Red Devils (0-1) Benedictine Eagles (1-0)

After the first three possessions of the game yielded punts, Benedictine junior kicker L.J.

GAME 2: EUREKA 23, CROWN 6 Saturday, Sept. 17, 2011 • Pete FioRito Stadium at McKinzie Field (914) • Eureka, Ill. • 68 degrees, clear and breezy EUREKA, Ill. – The Eureka College football team put forth its best defensive effort in nearly a decade and junior quarterback Sam Durley threw a pair of touchdowns to senior receiver Wes Schmidgall, leading the Red Devils to a 23-6 Upper Midwest Athletic Conference victory over Crown on Sept. 17 at McKinzie Field. Unlike Crown’s opening scoring drive that took 17 plays and chewed more than nine minutes off the clock, Eureka quickly moved the ball down the field to score its first touchdown of the day. The Red Devils picked up three first downs on the drive before Durley hit Schmidgall with a 22-yard strike to force a 6-6 tie after just seven plays covered 59 yards in 2:23. The point after was blocked, leaving the score tied at 6-6. The Eureka (1-1, 1-0 UMAC) defense yielded one first down on a rush from Crown running back Tyler Hallblade before forcing a punt early in the second quarter. The Red Devils made quick work of the Storm defense for the second consecutive possession and ultimately took their first lead of the game. Senior wideout Cody Myers snagged a pair of passes from Durley on the drive, including a 28yard catch that moved the Red Devils to the 1-yard line, before senior Alex Hess punched in his fifth career rushing touchdown for a 13-6 advantage with 12:20 left in the first half. The score remained 13-6 until the Red Devils pushed their advantage to two possessions on their final drive of the first half. Durley completed three passes in the final two minutes of the half, setting up the Red Devils with first-and-goal at the 3-yard line.

After a 3-yard run from Hallblade started the drive, Eureka sophomore linebacker Frankie Bray jarred the ball loose from Safford in the Storm backfield on the ensuing play, allowing junior lineman Craig Wilson to recover the bouncing ball for the Eureka defense’s second forced turnover of the afternoon. The fumble recovery set the stage for the Red Devils’ final scoring drive of the day. After a 9-yard completion from Durley to Myers gave the Red Devils a first down, Durley found Schmidgall open down the sideline for a 41-yard touchdown that pushed the hosts to a 23-6 advantage.

GAME 3: EUREKA 55, PRESENTATION 27 Saturday, Sept. 24, 2011 • Swisher Field (1,672) • Aberdeen, S.D. • 78 degrees, clear and breezy ABERDEEN, S.D. – Eureka College junior quarterback Sam Durley set single-game Eureka records with 478 passing yards and eight touchdown passes, leading the Red Devils to a 55-27 Upper Midwest Athletic Conference victory over Presentation, Sept. 24 at Swisher Field in Aberdeen, S.D. The victory improves the Red Devils to 2-0 in UMAC play, Eureka’s first 2-0 conference start since 1995. Durley’s 478 passing yards and eight touchdowns through the air topped the previous school records of 467 yards set by Mike Simpson in a 52-27 victory at Lakeland on Nov. 5, 1994 and seven touchdowns set by John Furmaniak in a 47-45 triumph over the same Lakeland squad on Nov. 4, 1995. Durley narrowly missed matching the NCAA Division III single-game record held by Ohio Northern’s Joe Zarlinga, who completed nine touchdown passes versus Capital (Ohio) on Nov. 14, 1998. Most of Durley’s damage was done with senior wide receiver Wes Schmidgall, who set new careerbests with 13 catches and 257 receiving yards. Each total marked the best effort by a Eureka receiver since current head coach Kurt Barth made 20 receptions against Concordia (Wis.) on Sept. 28, 1996 and went for 289 yards at Lakeland on Nov. 5, 1994. Schmidgall also matched a career-high Saturday night with four touchdown receptions. The Red Devils opened the scoring just six plays from scrimmage into the contest when Durley hooked up with Schmidgall on a 19-yard touchdown throw for a 6-0 lead. Following a defensive stop, the Eureka scored on what proved to be its longest scoring drive of the season when Durley hit senior Cody Myers with a 10-yard touchdown, the first career touchdown for Myers. The drive took 15 plays and covered 5-minutes, 55-seconds. Eureka extended its lead to 20-0 on Durley’s 42-yard pass to Schmidgall with one minute remaining in the first quarter. Eureka made it 27 unanswered when junior receiver Matt Dawson scored his second career touchdown, a 27-yard strike from Durley with 6:49 remaining before halftime.

Chambers found Boezeman in the end zone with the game-winning touchdown throw, capping a 10-play, 53-yard drive that took only 70 seconds. The big blow of the drive was a 23-yard catch by Tyrik Scott on 4th-and-10 from the Eureka 31-yard line, Scott’s only reception of the day. Three plays later on 3rd-and-goal from Eureka’s 7-yard line, Boezeman snagged the game-winner with only 6.6 seconds remaining. Greenville’s late scoring drive was necessary because of an improbable fourth-quarter rally by the Red Devils. Eureka scored three touchdowns in a span of 5-minutes, 17-seconds late in the game to overcome a 15-point fourth-quarter deficit. The Red Devils started their rally midway through the final quarter, marching 63 yards on 13 plays in 3:36 to cut its deficit to nine (28-19) when Durley found senior wide receiver Wes Schmidgall in the end zone with 6:37 left in the contest. Eureka’s ensuing onside kick was recovered by the Panthers, but Greenville gave the ball back with 2:48 left in regulation when Josh Frewin’s 31-yard field goal missed wide to the left.

The Red Devils won seven games in a season for the first time in program history and later became the earliest football team to ever be inducted into the Eureka College Athletics Hall of Fame.

The 1977 campaign marked the fourth season as head coach for Tom Hosier, who had gradually turned the Red Devils into contenders on the college football scene. The season also marked just the second year Eureka competed as new members of the Illini-Badger Football Conference. The season started on a high note, as the Red Devils earned a 14-0 victory in their first-ever matchup with Olivet Nazarene. The season also included a 17-14 triumph at Benedictine, snapping an eight-game losing streak in the all-time series with the Eagles and giving the Red Devils their first victory in Lisle since 1967. A three-game winning streak that began with a 38-14 romp at Concordia (Ill.) eventually spilled into November with wins over Illinois College and Iowa Wesleyan at McKinzie Field. The 31-0 blanking of the Tigers on Nov. 5 marked Eureka’s seventh victory of the campaign, breaking the previous single-season program record of six set on three previous occasions, including the 1976 season. Hosier would go on to finish his five-year tenure in 1978 with 23 victories as head coach of the Red Devils. The 1977 squad was selected for the Eureka College Athletics Hall of Fame in 2006.

Never before in 100 years of Eureka College football had the Red Devils put together a perfect regular season. That changed in 1991, as the Red Devils ripped off 10 consecutive victories, swept their way to an Illini-Badger-Hawkeye Football Conference championship and climbed as high as #3 in NAIA Division II national poll. The 1991 Red Devils were inducted into the Eureka College Athletics Hall of Fame in 1999. Under the direction of second-year head coach John Tully and less than three years removed from a 1-9 season in 1988, the Red Devils put together the finest season in the history of the program that dated back to the 1800s.

The Red Devils averaged what was then a school-record 34.4 points per game in the regular season, while the defense ranked second in the nation with only 8.4 points allowed per game. The dominant combination, coupled with a plus-30 turnover margin, allowed Eureka to outscore its opponents by an average of four touchdowns each week. The undefeated ride came to a halt in the first round of the NAIA Division II playoffs, a 42-14 defeat at the hands of #2 Georgetown (Ky.).

ON TO THE UMAC

Northwestern (Minn.) and St. Scholastica, the UMAC utilized a North and South divisional format in 2009 and a partial conference schedule in 2010 before finally playing a full round-robin slate for the first time in 2011.

BRIEF SLIAC STOP With the end of the Illini-Badger Football Conference in 2007, five IBFC members -- Aurora, Benedictine, Concordia (Ill.), Concordia (Wis.) and Lakeland -- formed parts of the new Northern Athletics Conference. When the St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference revived football competition, Eureka and former IBFC foes (and current full-time SLIAC rivals) Greenville and MacMurray joined for the 2008 season. The SLIAC football revival, which included associate members Huntingdon (Ala.) and LaGrange (Ga.), lasted only one season after full-time SLIAC members Blackburn and Principia dropped their football programs.

UPPER MIDWEST ATHLETIC CONFERENCE

UPPER MIDWEST ATHLETIC CONFERENCE HISTORY The Upper Midwest Athletic Conference (UMAC), which is comprised of eight full-time member schools from Minnesota, South Dakota and Wisconsin, began in 1972 as the Twin Rivers Conference and was renamed to its current title in 1983. Bethany Lutheran College, the College of St. Scholastica, Crown College, Martin Luther College, Northwestern College, Northland College, Presentation College and the University of Minnesota, Morris make up the league’s fulltime membership, while North Central University (Minn.) is currently an associate member in the sports of men’s and women’s cross country, men’s golf and men’s and women’s tennis. Joining the UMAC in 2009 as associate members in the sport of football only are Eureka College, Greenville College, MacMurray College, and Westminster College (Mo.). Beginning with the 2008-09 academic year, the UMAC became a member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division III. Each of the UMAC institutions boast full membership in the NCAA at the Division III level. Corey Borchardt became the league’s first full-time commissioner in 2008, following a ten-year run by Jim Unke, who also served as the Director of Athletics at Martin Luther College.

UPPER MIDWEST ATHLETIC CONFERENCE MISSION/VISION STATEMENT The Upper Midwest Athletic Conference shall provide for its member institutions opportunity to be recognized in its region as institutions which are in the forefront of academic excellence and athletic competitiveness.

UPPER MIDWEST ATHLETIC CONFERENCE PHILOSOPHY STATEMENT The Upper Midwest Athletic Conference (UMAC) is a group of strong yet diverse colleges and universities.

Our primary focus is on student athletes and their collegiate experience, with an uncompromising commitment to athletic equity and to the primacy of student academic progress. As an association of institutions dedicated to the conference, we will seek to enhance the overall richness of our collegiate programs. This will be done for all students, faculty, staff, and alumni by supporting teams who will consistently demonstrate the values of hard work, integrity and good sportsmanship. We believe a strong intercollegiate athletics conference can also serve the economic and entertainment needs of our communities by providing consistently high quality, exciting sports options. The UMAC endorses the NCAA Division III philosophy, including the central policy-making role of fully engaged college presidents and chancellors.
