FERRIS STATE UNIVERSITY

www.ferris.edu

erris State University is in its second century as one of the nation’s premier technical and professional universities. Ferris provides practical, “hands-on” education necessary to make its graduates immediately employable in a diverse array of fields. The institution was founded Nov. 4, 1884 by Woodbridge N. Ferris, a former Governor of Michigan and a U.S. Senator. His intent was to provide a practical education for any person with the motivation and potential to benefit. Today, Ferris State continues to teach technical skills and applications focused on solving real problems, and produces a career-oriented work force that is prepared to meet the world of high technology. The University offers more than 150 educational programs through the colleges of Allied Health Sciences, Arts and Sciences, Business, Education and Human Services, Kendall College of Art and Design, Michigan College of Optometry, Pharmacy and Technology. The programs are designed to respond to the changing needs of manufacturing, business, health care and other industries and professions which are critical to Michigan’s economy. With a student-to-faculty ratio of approximately 16-1, students at FSU receive the individual attention necessary to prepare them for their careers. Additionally, Ferris boasts a placement rate for graduates of 98 percent, one of the best in Michigan. Students also have the opportunity to join nearly 200 student organizations on campus plus club, intramural and intercollegiate sports. The scenic Big Rapids campus is located along the banks of the Muskegon River in the gentle rolling hills of west central Michigan. Initially, Ferris was known as the Ferris Industrial School, but in 1899 the title was changed to Ferris Institute. It was privately owned and operated until 1931 when it became a non-profit, non-stock education corporation. In 1949, Ferris became a state college, and the school was officially re-named Ferris State College in 1963 and Ferris State University in 1987.

2009 SEASON PREVIEW Things certainly won’t be the same for the Ferris State University football squad in 2009. A year ago, the Bulldogs entered the program’s 100th campaign with plenty of returning experience on the defensive side of the ball to go with a young and inexperienced offensive unit. The table has been turned this time around. Gone are seven starters from a veteran defensive unit, including the entire starting trio of linebackers and one of the most decorated players to ever put on a Bulldog uniform in three-time All-America defensive tackle Jake Visser, who’s currently in camp with the NFL’s Houston Texans this summer. The good news is the bulk of last year’s young offensive unit gained significant experience and has the potential to rank as one of the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference’s (GLIAC) most productive and explosive attacks in 2009. As head coach Jeff Pierce embarks on his 15th season at the Bulldog helm, he’ll do so with six starters back and a number of valuable reserves on the offensive side. “We’re excited about our potential offensively this year,” Pierce said. “We’ve got a group of guys with experience under their belts and they should be fun to watch. “There’s a lot of competition for several spots and with the solid nucleus that is back, it should give us the ability to do a lot more things on that side of the ball,” added Pierce. While the defensive unit lost seven starters and 16 letterwinners from a year ago, many of the players contending for the open roles are guys who have been in the program for some time. “We lost a number of starters, but we’re still an older team on defense,” said Assistant head coach and defensive coordinator Duane Wilson. “Many of them might not have significant game experience, but they’ve been around and now will get their chance to step up and make some plays.” As always, the schedule is expected to be challenging, although the Bulldogs are fortunate enough to play five home games on Top Taggart Field’s Mondo Ecofill artificial surface, including three of the first four contests. In addition to playing the season’s first two games in front of the home crowd, league archrival Grand Valley State will also come to Big Rapids for the first time in three seasons. “We’ll have our hands full and we’ll have to be prepared to play at the top of our game one week at a time,” Pierce said. “Our goal is to be a contender and continue playing after the regular-season has concluded. “If we’re prepared to go each week, winning will take care of itself and we’ll have an opportunity to be successful,” he added. The Bulldogs will also have an opportunity to play another “home” contest nearby in Comstock Park during the “Battle At The Ballpark” against Michigan Tech (Oct. 3) at Fifth Third Ballpark. The event will serve as a fundraiser for the program and give Ferris the chance to play in a unique setting. “We’re excited to play down there and are expecting a great atmosphere and environment,” Pierce said. “It’s a great opportunity for our program to showcase what we have in a different venue and we’re thankful for the outstanding support our fans have already shown for the contest.” If last season is any indication, the Bulldogs should have plenty of firepower again to contend in an always-competitive GLIAC race. “A number of guys can be impact players for us this year,” said Pierce. “The key will be how we all come together and how ready we are to go week in and week out.”

OFFENSE Quarterback – Nowhere should FSU’s returning offensive experience be more noticeable this season than at the quarterback position. A year ago, the Bulldogs headed into fall camp with little experience behind center. This time around, Ferris returns a pair of talented signal callers who have both shown the ability to direct the offense in sophomore Tom Schneider (6-3, 195) and senior Kyle Parrish (6-1, 190). Schneider holds the edge after an impressive spring game, but Parrish’s versatility should make this competitive battle last throughout the fall. With the Bulldogs’ offensive scheme, it’s very likely both will play, much like last season. Redshirt freshman Robert Banaszak (6-3, 195) also played well in the spring and could challenge for time. Running Back – Steady veteran Paris Holloman is gone, but the Bulldogs expect big things out of sophomore David Freeman (5-9, 190). Freeman saw significant action in the slot last campaign and has the big-play ability to create excitement out of the backfield. Newcomer Dwayne Williams (5-9, 190) performed well in the spring and proved to be a capable backup while junior David Johnson (5-10, 204) has displayed the skills to be a physical runner when healthy. Redshirt freshman Arshaun Hall (6-0, 170) will also compete for time. As in the past, a key group of slot players will also get the ball in certain situations on the ground. Wide Receivers – The Bulldogs lost two solid perimeter veterans from a year ago in local products Cole Meredith and Rahseem Jones-Salaam. However, depth shouldn’t be an issue in this area. A trio of sophomores in Seth Hubbard (6-3, 180), Damien Miller (6-0, 170) and Mike Ryan (5-10, 170) all gained significant experience during the 2008 season and will be counted on to make big plays in the passing game. Sophomore Aaron Olman (5-11, 205) and redshirt freshman Jaron Butts (5-9, 165) showcased their abilities last spring and should contend for significant time in various roles. Additionally, the Bulldogs welcome back several other veterans with limited game experience to supply depth including juniors Matt Schuelke (5-10, 170), DeAndrie Rogers (6-3, 200) and Keenan Bowman (6-2, 180) along with senior Ron Hardy (6-1, 200). Senior Chris Wilson (6-6, 230) missed all of last season with an injury but could figure into the rotation if healthy. Several talented incoming recruits also are expected to battle to be a part of the action, especially at the slot position. Offensive Line – Plenty of experience returns up front with the unit headlined by All-GLIAC honorable mention left tackle Matt Wellman (6-4, 280). Additionally, the right side remains intact with senior Joe Doman (6-0, 291) at guard and fellow senior Brad Bammert (6-2, 280) at tackle. Sophomore Joe Voiles (6-2, 270) has seen time as a valuable reserve in the past. Big Rapids native Jake Hancock (6-1, 270) was the spring surprise and is contending to be the starter at center. Redshirt freshmen Taylor Phillips (6-3, 255), Trevor Smolinski (6-7, 260), and Taylor Sprague (6-6, 280) had solid first years in the program and performed well enough in the spring to figure into the picture. Sophomore Rich Rosenberg (6-7, 270) and Clark Wright (6-3, 275) give the Bulldogs plenty of depth along the front line. Senior Kevin Ward (6-4, 215) and redshirt freshman Kevin Guirand (6-1, 195) join Phillips as candidates to play should the Bulldogs utilize a tight end in the formation at times this season. DEFENSE Defensive Line – In addition to the loss of Visser, the Bulldogs must replace two other starters up front at both end positions. On the inside, Wilson

expects senior Kory Deering (6-3, 282) to become a dominant interior player and take the leadership role. Senior Joe Morrow (6-2, 265) and junior Jacob Moreno (6-2, 253) were both valuable reserves last fall and should challenge for starting roles. Additionally, sophomore Muneer Bawayeh (6-4, 225) gained experience a year ago as a reserve. Redshirt freshman Jordan Morgan (6-4, 220) had an impressive spring and is expected to step into a starting role with redshirt freshman Brad Iskow (6-4, 250) and senior Marvin Hicks (6-3, 250) among others in the mix. The Bulldogs also moved last year’s starting center, junior Scott Shattuck (6-1, 290), to the defensive side in the spring to help supply additional depth. Linebackers – The two-year starting trio of Kevin Noe, Jeff Hollandsworth and Jordan Moore is gone, but a number of familiar faces are back and will get the chance to play this season. In the middle, senior Nick Butler (5-10, 235) finally steps into a starting role after playing behind a pair of All-GLIAC selections throughout his career in Noe and Mike Klobucher. Senior Chad Schoen (6-0, 206) should fill in admirably at one of the outside spots while junior Kyle Fitzpatrick (6-2, 211) and senior Matt Ryan (6-1, 190) are also being counted on to play and contending for starting roles. Redshirt freshmen Alex Brajak (6-1, 210), Tayo Moss (5-11, 200) and Mike Elias (6-2, 205) join senior Leon Curry (5-11, 245) as the top contenders to earn time. Former running back Charles Wasson (5-10, 209) also moved to the linebacking unit in the offseason to aid the depth. Secondary – Experience won’t be an issue in the secondary where the Bulldogs return talented starting corner Angelo Williams (5-11, 185) and the squad’s top three safeties in seniors Chad Wilson (60, 197), C.J. Lee (6-3, 200) and Santino Favot (5-11, 185). The cornerback position opposite Williams, which was previously held by two-time all-league selection Terrell Heggins, should be filled by speedy sophomore Russell Weatherspoon (5-10, 165), who saw action as a reserve and on special teams in 2008. A number of other youngsters have also displayed the ability to contribute and play in a variety of roles including redshirt freshmen Zachary Rosman (6-3, 182), Cody Groulx (6-1, 195), Jonathan Bryant (5-8, 170), and Jamar Slade (5-10, 195). Special Teams – The departure of former AllGLIAC honoree Jim Yates means the Bulldogs will have new faces in the kicking game for the first time in three seasons. Yates handled virtually all of the Bulldogs’ punting and placekicking duties the last two years. The lone player with any game experience on the roster is sophomore Shawn Snoor (6-1, 185). The Bulldogs placed an emphasis on the kicking game during the recruiting period and are hopeful this area won’t be cause for concern in 2009.


HEAD COACH JEFF PIERCE

JEFF PIERCE HEAD COACH (Ferris State, 1979) eff Pierce embarks on his 15th year as head coach of the Ferris State football program in the 2009 season and owns the distinction of being the Bulldogs’ alltime winningest coach. Pierce, who attained the historic milestone victory in Ferris’ overtime conference win at Ashland on Sept. 4, 2004, also boasts the program’s third-highest ever winning percentage (.584) in the Bulldogs’ gridiron history. Under Pierce, Ferris State has won or shared three Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) titles while earning backto-back (1995 and 1996) berths in the NCAA Division II National Championship playoffs, including a ‘95 semifinal-round appearance. An individual with lofty dreams and aspirations, Pierce had a lifelong dream turn into reality in May 1995 when the FSU alumnus was named the 12th head coach in the program’s history. Pierce had been an assistant coach for 12 years at Ferris State before being appointed to his current post. He also assists with coaching on the offensive side of the football and specializes in instructing the running backs. Pierce, who built a

J

national reputation as Keith Otterbein’s defensive coordinator for seven seasons, quickly made the most of his golden opportunity during his initial coaching campaign in 1995, guiding the Bulldogs at that time to an unprecedented fourth consecutive GLIAC title with a second straight undefeated regular season and a school-best semifinal appearance in the NCAA-II Playoffs. For his efforts, he was honored as the GLIAC’s Coach of the Year. Pierce has established firm roots with the Bulldogs since graduating from Sault Ste. Marie (Mich.) High School in 1974. He was a defensive back at Ferris from 1974-77 and later started his coaching career in 1983 under Nick Coso as a graduate assistant and head coach for the junior varsity. When Dan Underwood assumed the head coaching reigns in 1984, Pierce remained on board to coach the inside linebackers. He joined Otterbein’s staff in 1986 and was promoted to defensive coordinator in 1988. In his seven years as defensive coordinator, Pierce constructed one of the NCAA Division II’s top defensive units. His 1992 Bulldog defense led the nation in fewest points allowed while the 1994 squad was tops among the GLIAC’s total defense leaders. Pierce graduated from Ferris with a degree in trade-technical teacher education in 1979, earning a pair of President’s Academic Awards along the way. He completed graduate school in 1985 with a master’s degree in athletic administration from Central Michigan University. “I believe Ferris State is second to none when it comes time to sell our academic programs,” Pierce said. “Our football student-athletes should never lose sight of the fact that a degree at Ferris State University can significantly aid in getting a job when you graduate.” Pierce initially arrived at Ferris State after an all-conference football career at Sault Ste. Marie in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. He also wrestled in high school and was “All-

Upper Peninsula” in track. In 1978, Pierce was an assistant varsity football coach at Sault Ste. Marie High. From 1979-83, he logged two years as head junior varsity football coach, two years as head varsity football coach, and four years as head varsity track coach at Big Bay De Noc High School, which is located in the Upper Peninsula. Pierce, 52, resides in Big Rapids with his wife, Suzie, and their two sons, Jason (19) and Justin (15). Pierce is a member of the American Football Coaches Assoc.

THE GREAT LAKES INTERCOLLEGIATE ATHLETIC CONFERENCE he Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) was founded in 1972. During the two years previous to the GLIAC’s founding, several attempts were made to create a new NCAA College Division conference. In 1971, the Great Lakes Athletic Conference was formed, but plans for the new conference were put on hold and several of the participating schools subsequently withdrew their support. However, the idea for a new conference did not die, and since 1972-73 the GLIAC has been a leader in the advancement and promotion of intercollegiate athletics for men and women. The charter members of the GLIAC were Ferris State University, Grand Valley State University, Lake Superior State University, Northwood University, and Saginaw Valley State University. Expansion of the GLIAC began immediately with the addition of Oakland University in 1974. Hillsdale College and Northern Michigan University were accepted as members in 1975, while Wayne State University joined in 1976. In 1977, the conference lost its first member when Northern Michigan withdrew. Michigan Tech University filled the vacancy when it became a member in 1980. After the 1986-87 season, Northwood left the conference and was replaced by Northern Michigan. Northwood rejoined the conference in 1992. After the 1989 season, the conference dropped football as a sponsored sport. The conference schools sponsoring football joined the members of the Heartland Collegiate Conference in forming the football-only Midwest Intercollegiate Football Conference (MIFC), which began play in 1990. After nine years of existence as one of the premier conferences in Division II football, the MIFC merged as part of GLIAC on July 1, 1999. With the merger, the University of Indianapolis became an associate member as a football-only school. The GLIAC entered a new era in the 1995-96 school year. Prior to 1995-96, all member institutions of the GLIAC were located in the state of Michigan. On December 14, 1994, membership was offered to three schools located in Ohio and Pennsylvania. The expansion members were Ashland University of Ashland, Ohio, and Gannon University and Mercyhurst College, both located in Erie, Pennsylvania. All three schools began their membership July 1, 1995. On July 1, 1997, membership was granted to The University of Findlay, located in Findlay, Ohio. UF replaced Oakland University, which withdrew from the conference after the 1996-97 season as it moved to NCAA Division I status. Westminster College, located in New Wilmington, Pennsylvania, became the 14th member of the GLIAC when it accepted its expansion offer in May of 1997. On June 30, 2000 Westminster left the conference as it changed its affiliation to NCAA Division III. In 2008, both Mercyhurst and Gannon left the GLIAC for the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC). The GLIAC in turn offered official membership to Tiffin (Ohio), giving the conference 12 football-playing schools with a 10-game league schedule last fall and again this season. The league will welcome Lake Erie (Ohio) College and Ohio Dominican University for the 2010 camapign, giving the conference 14 football-playing schools. Overall the GLIAC conducts championships in 20 sports, 10 for men and 10 for women. The policy-making body of the GLIAC is the Executive Council, which is comprised of three representatives from each member institution – its director of athletics, faculty athletics representative and senior woman administrator. Final approval of all amendments to the GLIAC constitution and by-laws is required by the Council of GLIAC Presidents. The presidency of the GLIAC is rotated alphabetically by school, with Kris Dunbar, director of athletics at Lake Superior State University, serving as GLIAC President in 2009-10. Tim Selgo, director of athletics at the Grand Valley State University, will serve as Past President. Dell Robinson will embark on his first year as GLIAC Commissioner and is responsible for all conference administration after replacing retiring commissioner Tom Brown as the conference’s sixth commissioner this summer. Assisting Brown are: Penny Cook, Assistant Commissioner for Compliance and Senior Women’s Administrator; Jeff Ligney, Assistant Commissioner for Media Relations; Denise Gross, Assistant to the Commissioner; Phil Barnes, Supervisor of Football Officials; John Kirk, Supervisor of Basketball Officials; and Jeanne Skinner, Supervisor of Volleyball Officials.

THE HISTORY

OF

GLIAC FOOTBALL

he Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference began sponsoring football as a league sport in the Fall of 1973 with three teams, Ferris State University, Grand Valley State University, and Northwood University. In 1974, Hillsdale College joined the league as the fourth football team. The conference expanded again in 1975 when Saginaw Valley State University started a football program and Wayne State University joined the league. The number of GLIAC football teams grew to seven in 1980 when Michigan Tech University was added, though the Huskies left the league after the 1985 season. In 1987, Northwood left the league and was replaced by Northern Michigan University. After the 1989 season, the GLIAC dropped football as a sponsored sport. The six conference schools sponsoring football, Ferris State, Grand Valley State, Hillsdale, Northern Michigan, Saginaw Valley State, and Wayne State, joined the five members of the Heartland Collegiate Conference, Ashland University, Butler University, the University of Indianapolis, St. Joseph’s College, and Valparaiso University, in forming the football-only Midwest Intercollegiate Football Conference (MIFC), which began play in 1990. The MIFC would change again for the 1993 season as two teams would leave and two teams would join. Butler and Valparaiso left the conference, but Northwood rejoined and the College of St. Francis (Ill.) was added. The league grew to 12 teams in 1994 with the addition of Michigan Tech and stayed at 12 teams until St. Joseph’s left after the 1995 season. In 1998, the league expanded to 14 teams with the additions of the University of Findlay, Mercyhurst College, and Westminster College, but would drop back to 13 teams with the departure of St. Francis after the season. Westminster would depart after the 1999 season, leaving 12 teams. Gannon University was added before the 2004 season, giving the league its current 13-team roster. After nine years of existence as one of the premier conferences in Division II football, the MIFC merged as part of GLIAC on July 1, 1999. The GLIAC has a earned the reputation as one of the toughest and deepest Conferences in Division II with a strong postseason history. Three GLIAC teams made National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) playoff appearances. Grand Valley State made it to the national semifinals in 1978. Saginaw Valley State made three trips to the NAIA playoffs (1979, 1983, 1984), posting a 2-3 mark. Hillsdale earned five NAIA postseason berths as a member of the GLIAC (1981, 1982, 1985, 1986, 1988), taking home the championship in 1985. The first team to represent the GLIAC in the Division II playoffs was Northern Michigan in 1987. The Wildcats made the D-II semifinals that season. Grand Valley State started a three-year postseason run in 1989, though the Lakers failed to get out of the first round. Butler joined GVSU in the D-II playoffs in 1991, marking the first year the league had two teams participate in postseason play. Butler fell to the eventual national champion, Pittsburg State University (Kan.) in the first round. The 1992 Division II playoffs saw the first GLIAC team make it past the opening round in league history. Ferris State posted a first-round win over Edinboro University (Pa.) before falling to the University of New Haven (Conn.) in the quarterfinals. The 1992 season marked the beginning of a five-year playoff run for the Bulldogs, with their best performance coming in 1995 after a national semifinal appearance. Grand Valley State made its fourth and fifth D-II postseason trips in 1994 and 1998, respectively. Ashland made its first appearance in the playoffs as a member of the GLIAC in 1997. After being shut out of the playoffs in 1999, the GLIAC posted two teams in the 2000 tournament as Northwood and Saginaw Valley State each made their first D-II postseason appearances. The Timberwolves claimed a first-round victory over Indiana University (Pa.) before falling to Bloomsburg University (Pa.) in the quarterfinals. The 2001 season was historic for the league as two teams made it through the first round of the playoffs. Grand Valley State and Saginaw Valley State each posted opening-round wins and faced each other in the national quarterfinals. The Lakers won a shoot-out in Allendale (Mich.), 33-30, and cruised to a semifinal win over Catawba College (N.C.). GVSU advanced to the championship game before falling to the University North Dakota, 17-14. The Lakers would redeem themselves in 2002 by claiming the league’s first Division II football national championship. Grand Valley State defeated Valdosta State University (Ga.) in the finals, 31-24. GVSU would repeat as national champions in 2003. The Lakers knocked off North Dakota in that championship game, 10-3. Three league teams, GLIAC co-champions Michigan Tech and Northwood, along with Grand Valley State, would earn playoff berths in 2004. GVSU fell in the regional finals to North Dakota, 19-15. The 2005 season saw more postseason success for the GLIAC. GVSU, SVSU, and Northwood each gained postseason entrance. The Lakers and Cardinals battled for the Northwest Region title, but GVSU advanced, 24-17, and went on to defeat NW Missouri State, 21-17, in the Division II title game. Grand Valley State and Northwood both reached the postseason in 2006 with the Lakers repeating as national champions. In 2007, GVSU and Ashland made the playoff field with the Lakers bowing out in the national semifinals. GVSU lost to eventual national champion Minnesota-Duluth in the 2008 national quarterfinals after beating Ashland in the second round of the playoffs last campaign.

The Bulldogs expect big things this season out of senior defensive tackle Kory Deering. He’s the only returning starter on FSU’s defensive line, which lost a pair of all-conference players in end Kyle Walker and three-time AllAmerica pick Jake Visser to graduation.

Junior left tackle Matt Wellman returns to the lineup this season after claiming All-GLIAC Honorable Mention accolades last fall. Wellman has started each of the past two seasons for the Bulldogs and will be one of three returning starters on the offensive line this campaign.

TOP TAGGART FIELD/WHEELER PAVILION

T

op Taggart Field has served as home for the Ferris State football team since 1957.

Officially dedicated in October 1978, the stadium is centrally located on the FSU campus and features a current seating capacity of 6,200. Permanent lighting makes it possible for night games, which are popular with the Bulldog faithful during the early part of the season. The facility also has been used extensively by individuals outside the University W.C. TAGGART community as Top Taggart Field has hosted numerous athletic events on the high school level. Presently, the facility is midst a multi-phase renovation and construction project. The initial phase, completed in August 1998, involved the installation of an AstroTurf 12 playing surface considered by experts as the highest quality artificial turf on the market at the time. The playing field is surrounded by a new 400-meter, eightlane track with a brick red urethane surface. A new electronic scoreboard was installed in June 2000. Phase two of the project was completed in August 2001 with the construction of the Wheeler Pavilion, named in honor of alumnus John

Wheeler and his wife, Chris. The three-story building, which is located on the stadium’s west side, features a clubroom level, a media/game management level, a ticket office, remodeled and expanded restrooms along with a remodeled, expanded and covered concession area. The project also involved upgrading the main entrance, improving site landscaping, adding 250 center section seats and a new lighting system. The facility underwent its latest upgrade in the summer of 2008 as a new top of the line Mondo Ecofill artificial surface was installed as part of a one-million dollar project. The field is named in honor of W.C. “Top” Taggart. As a child, his own family circle affixed the name “Top.” The name become synonymous with Taggart and inevitably “Top” became a sym-

bol of affection and respect held for him by everyone. A Big Rapids native and a former Bulldog star halfback, Taggart became Ferris’ first official varsity football coach, beginning with the 1912 season. His contributions to Ferris and Big Rapids go much further. Taggart served on the Ferris Board of Control from 1931-50, including five years as its chairman, and was a long-time benefactor of Ferris in countless ways. As a businessman, he was a pioneer in the natural gas development and production industry, and was president of the Taggart Company in Big Rapids. He passed away in 1968, but not before Ferris officials recognized him in October, 1957, during dedication ceremonies of the University’s football facility. Taggart was inducted into the Ferris State Bulldog Athletics Hall of Fame in 2002.

The $1.8 million state-of-the-art Wheeler Pavilion is another addition to Top Taggart Field and allows Ferris State University to have one of the nation’s top Division II football-playing facilities. The three-story building was constructed in 2001 through the generosity of alumnus John Wheeler (‘76), Chief Executive Officer of Rockford Construction Company and the Rockford Development Group. Wheeler and his wife, Chris, pledged $500,000 and an in-kind gift of $100,000 in professional services. A public fundraising campaign raised $600,000 in contributions and pledges, which was matched by the University. A groundbreaking ceremony for the facility was held March 5, 2001.

THE FERRIS STATE “BULLDOG” The “Bulldogs” have been Ferris State University’s official mascot since 1930, when the name was applied to the Ferris Institute basketball team. At the time, an unknown sportswriter became impressed by the way coach Bill McElwain’s chargers were winning close games with defense (even recording a shutout once). He described the stringy defense as “hanging on like a bulldog.” During an eight-game winning streak for the 1930 squad, Ferris held the opposition to an average of 17.1 points per game. Then he began referring to the team as the “Bulldogs.” The nickname stuck and has been used ever since. The logo was re-designed in 1979 by former FSU graphic artist Terry Davenport, son of former Bulldog Athletics Director Dean Davenport.

Junior Kyle Fitzpatrick is among the candidates to fill one of the outside linebacker positions for FSU in 2009. The Bulldogs must replace their entire trio of starting linebackers from the last two seasons in Kevin Noe, Jordan Moore and Jeff Hollandsworth. The 6-2 Fitzpatrick has been a solid special teams contributor in the past and played in all 11 games for the Bulldogs during the 2008 season.

Senior quarterback Kyle Parrish is back for his final season and figures to contend for time again behind center. Parrish split the duties last season with Tom Schneider and led the Bulldogs with 911 yards in the air along with six touchdown passes. He threw for 404 yards at Indianapolis (Oct. 11) during the 2008 season.

The Bulldogs celebrate their 21-17 season finale win over Wayne State in 2006 at FSU’s Top Taggart Field in Big Rapids, Mich. The win, which nearly catapulted the Bulldogs into the NCAA Division II Playoffs, enabled Ferris to finish the year with an 8-3 overall mark. The Bulldogs concluded the season ranked 17th in Don Hansen's Football Gazette's final Division II Top 40 poll and 22nd nationally in D2Football.com's final Top 25 poll.

Ferris State made its fifth consecutive NCAA Division II Playoff appearance in 1996 as the Bulldogs advanced to the quarterfinal round before dropping a 2321 home decision to Clarion (Pa.). The ‘96 Bulldog squad is pictured above after posting a 24-23 home victory over Indiana (Pa.) in the playoff’s first-round action. Ferris finished the campaign at 10-2-0 overall as the Bulldogs claimed their fifth straight Midwest Intercollegiate Football Conference (MIFC) Championship title with a first-place 9-1-0 conference mark.


1995 – A SEASON TO REMEMBER 1995 FERRIS STATE BULLDOGS – MEN ON A MISSION In the Ferris State football locker room, there’s a motivational displayed on the wall that defines success. Success is a journey, not a destination. The Bulldogs traveled on a path that held not only success but lasting memories as well. Indeed, the men which comprised the Ferris football team were on a mission to not only defend their Midwest Intercollegiate Football Conference (MIFC) title for an unprecedented fourth time, but claim the national championship. While Ferris fell just short of its national championship quest, the Bulldogs managed to secure their fourth consecutive conference title. FSU also recorded its third straight undefeated season and advanced to the semifinal round of the NCAA Division II National Championship Playoffs before falling to eventual national champion North Alabama. Nevertheless, the team earned the distinction of advancing farther than any previous Bulldog gridiron team in school history. Longtime FSU assistant Jeff Pierce was named head coach. Twin brothers Brian and Jeff Browe were featured in the 1995 Sports Illustrated college football preview issue. The script of the storybook campaign couldn’t have been written more appropriately as Ferris capped off its second 10-0 regular season with the greatest comeback in NCAA Division II history, a 46-42 regular-season ending win over visiting Saginaw Valley State. The Bulldogs, who trailed 28-0 after the first quarter, completed the rally when Chris Pulliams scored on a 97yard TD run with 2:57 remaining in the game.

A GAME OF DESTINY

HIGHEST FINISH IN SCHOOL HISTORY Two teams with perfect records placed their unblemished marks on the line in a 1995 NCAA Division II National Championship Playoff Semifinal-Round contest played Dec. 2 at North Alabama’s Braly Stadium in Florence, Ala. The Ferris State Bulldogs and North Alabama Lions each brought in identical 12-0 records into a game which represented Ferris’ highest finish ever in school history. The contest featured two of the most successful Division II teams over the last four years and two of the nation’s premier players in Ferris State quarterback Bill Love and North Alabama linebacker Ronald McKinnon, who both were among the top three vote getters for the Harlon Hill Trophy as the nation’s top player in Division II football. Both schools made their fourth consecutive appearance in the Division II playoffs as Ferris State’s seniors had produced a 42-5-2 record while North Alabama’s senior group had compiled a 46-5-1 mark. North Alabama, the two-time (2003 and 2004) national champions, played impressively as the number-one ranked Lions posted a 45-7 victory over the third-ranked Bulldogs before 7,866 fans. UNA never trailed in the

game, jumping out to a 21-7 halftime advantage and then reeling off the contest’s final 24 points in the second half. Ferris’ lone score occurred in the second quarter on tailback Chris Pulliams’ 10-yard run followed by kicker Jason Lipke’s extra-point kick.

Through extraordinary efforts like Pulliams’, the Bulldogs were able to extend their regular season unbeaten streak to a remarkable 39 games (37-0-2) while not losing a regular season contest since the third week of the 1992 season. Ferris began post-season play ranked third nationally and first in the Northeast Region. The Bulldogs hosted the opening two playoff rounds and utilized their home field advantage with victories over Millersville and New Haven. All season long, FSU rallied behind one phrase – Every player, every play. That philosophy laid the foundation for the program’s success in recent years. The concept proved instrumental throughout the campaign as the Bulldogs set or tied an impressive 51 school records. Senior All-America quarterback Bill Love was accorded the team’s highest individual honor. Love, the 1995 MIFC Player-of-the-Year, attained runner-up honors in balloting for the prestigious Harlon Hill Trophy, awarded to the nation’s most outstanding Division II player. On the sidelines, Pierce made the most of his head coaching debut by being selected as the MIFC’s Coachof-the-Year. The 13-week fall journey will be remembered forever as the embodiment of Ferris State football program’s winning tradition. “I have to give a lot of credit to our seniors,” said Pierce. “These guys accomplished some things that a lot of people have never done. They’ve gone four years with only two regular-season losses and that’s a great tribute to them.”

November 11, 1995 – A date which will live forever in the annals of the Ferris State football program. Not even a blizzard or a 28-0 deficit could stop Ferris State from finishing the 1995 regular season with its 39game unbeaten streak intact. The never-say-die Bulldogs completed a perfect 10-0 regular season by never panicking and never blinking in the face of adversity to stun upsetminded Saginaw Valley State, 46-42, in the Midwest Intercollegiate Football Conference (MIFC) regular-season finale at Top Taggart Field in Big Rapids, Mich. The third nationally-ranked Bulldogs trailed 28-0 after the first quarter in the throes of a blinding storm which dumped six inches of snow and featured north wind gusts of upwards to 40 miles an hour to go with a 29 degree temperature. Ferris, which was down 35-14 at halftime, warmed up in the second half as the Bulldogs outscored the Cardinals 32-7 and capped off the remarkable comeback with 2:57 remaining in the contest as tailback Chris Pulliams dashed for a conference-record 97yard touchdown run as the hosts registered their third straight undefeated regular season. The dramatic run was set up when the Bulldog defense caused a SVSU fumble and free safety Charles Anderson recovered the ball at the Ferris three-yard line with 3:15 left to be played. The next play was one for the record book as Pulliams busted outside and turned up field going 97 yards to paydirt in 18 seconds. The Cardinals had one final shot at redemption with 2:57 showing on the scoreboard but could only get to their 26-yard line in four plays before having to turn the ball over to Ferris on downs.

Pulliams finished the game with a MIFC-record 329 yards rushing on 30 carries and scored three TD’s. Both Ferris and Saginaw Valley State combined for 821 yards rushing to set a conference mark. “We never stopped believing,” said FSU head coach Jeff Pierce. “You can’t doubt yourself and if you do when you’re down 28-0 then you will never pull it out. When we were down 28-0, we talked about it and we knew we had been there before. We had to get down to business.”
