Why the Bengals?

How did Idaho State’s athletic teams become the Bengals, when there just aren’t any to be found in the region? A good question. Originally, when the school was the Academy of Idaho in 1902, the school’s athletic teams were dubbed “Bantams”, and it stayed that way until 1917, when J.A. Fogt became head football coach. Now Idaho Tech, the team’s nickname was changed to “Tigers”, in part due to Ralph Hutchinson, who was the Director of Physical Education and Athletics. Hutchinson was a graduate of Princeton (the Tigers), so he founded the school’s first booster club, the “I” Club, and brought the “Tiger” mascot with him. When the school became the University of Idaho-Southern Branch in 1927, the nickname switched to “Bengals”, although many newspaper and yearbook accounts refer to the team by both “Bengals” and “Tigers”. The freshman teams during this time suffered the unfortunate distinction of the nickname “Kittens”, or even worse, the “Kitties”. As a branch of the University of Idaho, the school’s colors were black and gold, just like the Vandals, and although the official colors switched to black and orange sometime in the 1940s, the football team wore black jerseys with gold trim through the 1960s. The squad also used red numerals for awhile in the late 1940s, and Idaho State’s 1970 home jerseys were more red than orange. It wasn’t until 1971 that a truly orange jersey was used by the football team for the first time. The school’s official colors are black and orange (PMS 165), and the trim color is gold (PMS 137), a small remembrance to harken back to ISU’s rich history.

ABOUT IDAHO STATE UNIVERSITY This view of the quad was taken from the Pond Student Union Building, and it showcases the beauty of both Idaho State and Pocatello. The trees located in the center of the picture are part of ISU’s Arbor Walk, and the mountains that border Pocatello to the east majestically watch over the campus.

Idaho State University

The Idaho Accelerator Center at ISU’s research park allows for researchers and national laboratories to utilize special nuclear facilities.



Idaho State University is a Carnegie-classified doctoral research and teaching institution that draws students from around the world. It meets the growing demand for higher-education services with seven colleges—Arts and Sciences, Business, Education, Engineering, Health Professions, Pharmacy and Technology—and a graduate school. Together, they offer nearly 280 certificate, bachelor’s, master’s, doctoral and postdoctoral programs. ISU is the state-designated lead institution for health-professions education. Founded in 1901 as the Academy of Idaho, Idaho State University initially offered college-prep and industrial courses. In its first 100 years, the school underwent

The columns on Red Hill are a Pocatello landmark. They are atop of Red Hill, which overlooks Davis Field, which is home to Idaho State’s track and soccer programs.

The clock tower is one of the newer additions to the Pond Student Union Building, which houses ISU’s official bookstore, several dining options, a game room, a billiards hall, and a bowling alley.

The newest addition to the campus is the Rendezvous Center, which houses apartment-style student housing, a dining hall, and classrooms, and the building is seen as a bridge between the upper and lower campuses.

considerable growth and change. Forty students were enrolled in Pocatello in 1902; today, about 14,000 students attend classes at the main campus and at centers around the state. More than 2,000 graduate annually. Idaho State University’s role in higher education has grown dramatically. In 1927, legislation was passed making it the University of Idaho–Southern Branch. In 1963 it became Idaho State University. At that time there were 3,500 students, four colleges offering six bachelor’s and eight master’s degrees, and a trade and technical school with 14 programs. Current enrollment includes about 2,500 students attending ISU–Idaho Falls, and more than 2,500 attending classes at ISU–Boise, ISU–Twin Falls, and centers in American Falls, Blackfoot, Coeur d’Alene, Hailey, Preston and Soda Springs. Located in Pocatello, ISU is a short distance from several prominent recreation areas, foremost among them Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks, and Sun Valley. ISU students enjoy unrivaled outdoor activities, from skiing to backpacking, bicycling, riverrunning, and fishing in Idaho’s famous blue-ribbon trout streams. The original campus consisted of a four-block area of 8 1/2 acres donated by the citizens of Pocatello. Today, ISU has 105 buildings and 1,103 acres. The university offers cultural events and athletic pro-

Commitment to Diversity At Idaho State University there are more than 30 different cultural organizations to help potential student-athletes adapt to college life. Idaho State seeks to enrich every student’s educational experience through exposure to different cultures, philosophies, and scholarly perspectives. This atmosphere of interchange and inquiry is fostered through programs that can take students around the globe or to a quiet corner on campus for a discussion with a new found friend offering a different point of view.

ACADEMIC SERVICES lete to all services available to the student population as a whole, including but not limited to career counseling, the counseling and testing office, the academic skills center, the regis­trar, financial aid, the placement office, postgraduate scholarships, and any other student services. The office also provides tutoring, helps the student-athlete stay on track for graduation and NCAA eligibility, provides advising on general education courses until a major course of study is selected, and helps with career choices with the idea in mind that a college education can be more meaningful when a career is decided on. The office also makes presentations on drug and alcohol awareness available to the student-athletes. “Even though our graduation rates are good, we are constantly striving to improve them,” Graziano says. “The creation of the Student-Athlete Support Center is a positive step in that improvement.” The refurbished Student-Athlete Support Center was dedicated in 2003 and is located on the south side

of Holt Arena. As part of the refurbishment, student computers and additional space for academic counseling were added, bringing added benefits to the students. The department continues to expand, as in 2008, an expanded study center in Turner Hall was opened. The new center was funded with a $40,000 grant obtained by Matt Steuart from the NCAA. The new study area features over a dozen computer stations, a quiet room, and has available tutoring for the student-athletes.

Academics

Every academic institution’s first responsibility is to prepare its students for the best opportunity to graduate with their fullest potential. Idaho State understands this responsibility very well and instituted the Student-Athlete Support Center for its student-athletes, to enable them to balance the time ­requirements for both academics and athletics with the ultimate goal of obtaining their degree. Under the direction of Nancy Graz­i­ano, and assisted by a strong and caring staff, the Student-Athlete Support Center provides a variety of services with that in mind. The center’s function begins even before a student-athlete sets foot on campus with trans­cript evaluation, and continues in helping the newcomer make the transition from high school or junior college to college. “When they arrive at ISU we want it to be a posi­ tive experience,” Graziano says. The Student-Athlete Support Center serves as a liaison for the student-ath-

ISU SPORTS AND ORTHOPEDIC CENTER



Idaho State’s athletic facilities had already boasted of the first domed stadium capable of housing both football and basketball ever constructed on a college campus, as well as America’s fastest indoor board track. With the June 1994 opening of the Sports & Orthopaedic Center at ISU, they include the premier weight training facility in the Big Sky ­Conference. The 25,000-foot Center includes a 6,800-foot state-of-the-art weight training area that is reserved strictly for Idaho State’s student-athletes. The area has weight lifting stations, stationary bicycles, and aerobics equipment, as well as an on-site strength and conditioning coach. The Center also houses the offices of Drs. Tony Joseph, M.R. Mickelson, ISU’s team physician, Steve Coker, Kenneth E. Newhouse, Dr. Vermon Esplin, Dr. Sandra Hoffman, and Dr. Chris Johnson along with the offices of The Pocatello Physical Therapy Clinic with physical therapists Ric Benedetti and Dan DesFosses, and an alumni, recruitment and educational center

with meeting and classrooms. It was built at a cost of $2.5 million. The Center is a joint venture of ISU and the Portneuf Medical Center and was 14 months in construction. It is a major milestone for ISU in fulfilling its mission as the state’s lead in­stitution for health care education. It serves as an educational and training facility for health sciences students, faculty, area health care providers, and the community. The Center is beneficial for ISU’s student-athletes in numerous ways, aside from the enormous benefit of the area’s premier weight training facility being next door to Holt Arena. First and foremost, student-athletes have immediate access to physi­cians and therapists as well as the equipment used in treatment and rehabilitation. The Center was built at no cost to the public. The privately-financed structure will be leased to PMC and after the two 20-year land leases have expired, ownership is transferred back to Idaho State University.

Caccia Field

On Saturday afternoon, October 6, 2007 on Homecoming against Northern Colorado, Idaho State University dedicated the Holt Arena playing surface to ISU’s all-time winningest coach, Italo J. “Babe” Caccia. The field is now known as Caccia Field. The ceremony took place on the field prior to the nationally televised game with the Bears, a long standing former Rocky Mountain Conference rival that Caccia’s squads went

Caccia’s dedication speech was both touching and extremely entertaining.

9-1 against over his coaching tenure. Flanked by his wife and family, Caccia, who celebrated his 90th birthday during the week of the festivities, was called by ISU President Dr. Arthur C. Vailas “an institution, and a true Bengal”. Caccia, who was the Athletic Director for ISU’s 1981 National Championship season and worked hand in hand with his best friend and Dome namesake Milton “Dubby” Holt, had the Holt Arena crowd in stitches at the ceremony, commenting that, “had I known all this would have happened, I’d be happy to turn 90 again next year!” Babe coached the Bengals from 1952 through the 1965 season, compiling an all-time mark of 79-38-2. Babe’s teams won Rocky Mountain Conference championships in 1952, 1953, 1955, 1957, and 1959, and he also won the first ever Big Sky Conference title in 1963. Caccia’s legendary teams include a pair of undefeated squads in 1952 (8-0, 5-0 RMC) and in 1957 (9-0, 6-0 RMC). The 1957 team outscored their opponents 280-85, with only one game decided by 13 points or less. Caccia’s teams also went 11-3 on Homecoming, and fittingly, Idaho State scored a decisive 26-14 victory to commemorate the occasion and the christening of Caccia Field.

Holt Arena History

Idaho State has long been a national leader in innovative athletic facilities. In 1967, then-athletic director Milton ‘Dubby’ Holt first hit on the idea of playing both football and basketball in a domed structure on the ISU campus. The doors opened in September, 1970, with a 64-34 win over UNLV. Only one domed facility predates Holt Arena: the Houston Astrodome. But ever since ISU demonstrated that a dome could be constructed at a reasonable price, which was $2.8 million at the time, domes have proliferated around the country. Holt Arena is presently one of the few totallycontained indoor stadiums anywhere. It consists of a 12,000-seat football field and an 8,000-seat basketball arena with a wooden floor from the Horner Flooring Company. In 1999, Idaho State installed a brand new $1,000,000 turf playing surface, with a striking design from former ISU graphic artist Greg Grasso.

Holt Arena has hosted many memorable events. Those coming to mind immediately in­clude three NCAA Sub-Regional Basketball Tournaments, two of which ISU participated in, three NCAA Division I-AA playoff games involving Idaho State and two I-AA National Champ­ ionship Games for which Pocatello bid to host and won, and numerous district and confer­ence indoor track championships. In 2001, Holt Arena hosted the Big Sky Conference Women’s Basketball Tournament as well as the Golden Spike Invitational Track Meet, which was broadcast on ESPN. The Arena is also the site of numerous concerts by entertainers as diverse as Garth Brooks and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, numerous state high school championships, and the Dodge National Circuit Finals Rodeo. In 2009, courtesy of the Idaho Potato Commission, a new 16x12 foot video board debuted, further increasing the fan experience at Holt Arena.

The Marcus Jackson Award

On September 21, 1996, tragedy struck the Idaho State University football family when the unthinkable happened. During a 47-0 rout of Montana-Western, second team All-American defensive back Marcus Jackson suffered a traumatic spinal injury while making a tackle late in the first half. The injury caused paralysis. Up to that point, Marcus had a pair of interceptions in ISU’s first two games, and was looking for another All-America season. Ironically, Idaho State opened their season against the University of Mississippi, which just a season earlier suffered through the same tragedy with their All-American defensive back, Chuckie Mullins. Following the injury, Marcus was hospitalized at the former Bannock Medical Center from September 21 through October 1, and was then flown back to his hometown in Colorado. Jackson returned to Idaho State in the fall of 1997. His sense of humor and courage throughout the ordeal were admired by everyone he met along the way, and he became a regular fixture on the sidelines at ISU home games. In the summer of 1999, Marcus Jackson earned his bachelor’s degree from Idaho State, ready to embark on the next phase of his heroic journey through life. To honor Marcus, one player is chosen after the conclusion of spring practice to wear a patch with Jackson’s initials on it. The team selects the player that they feel best personifies the athletic ability that Jackson showed, as well as the courage he showed throughout his ordeal. In 1997, senior Telly Lockette was the first player to wear the patch, and senior Jason Trotter was the 1998 recipient. In Marcus Jackson 1999, the honor went to Nick Whitworth of Mackay, Idaho. In 2000 season, DeRonn Finley, a senior from Scottsdale, Arizona, was voted to wear the patch by his teammates. For the 2001 season, the honor went to walk-on junior Mike Clark. The 2002 honoree was defensive lineman Mark Weivoda, and in 2003, junior Jeff Davenport became just the third junior to be voted to wear the patch. In 2004, senior Vince Caviglia was honored by his teammates, and in 2005, a sophomore wore the patch for the first time when Terrence Calloway was honored by his teammates. The 2006 recipient was Hunter Rodriguez, who was the first player to be honored yet miss the entire season. In 2007, the new coaching staff voted to honor senior center and leader George Yarno, and the 2008 honoree was Sacramento native Eddie Thompson, who rebounded from a torn ACL to earn Honorable Mention All-America honors. In 2009, Clint Knickrehm becomes the second Pocatello native to earn the honor.

A Decade in the NFL

Garces played just two seasons for the Bengals, but he made his mark as perhaps the greatest long-range kicker in I-AA history. In just two seasons, Pete kicked 11 50-yard field goals, tying the NCAA I-AA record with West Carolina’s Jerry Roach, who took four seasons and 26 attempts. Garces made his 11 in just 16 tries. Garces’ most famous kick was a 60-yarder in a 32-29 win over #25 Cal State Northridge that knocked the Matadors out of the NCAA I-AA playoffs.

16

Johnson, a two-time First Team Big Sky selection and the nation’s leading punter in 2001, was selected by the Minnesota Vikings in the sixth round of the 2003 NFL draft. Johnson, Idaho State’s career leader in punting average, led the nation in 2001 with a 46.3-yard average on the way to First Team All-America honors. In 2002, he averaged 46.2 per kick, and he set an NCAA I-AA record when he averaged 61.5 yards per punt on six punts against Cal Poly. With Johnson leading the way, Idaho State led the nation in net punting for the third consecutive year, including a I-AA record 44.3-yard net average in 2001.

Josh Robinson

Isaac Mitchell

Signed Free Agent Contract Baltimore Ravens, 2002 Robinson, a four-year veteran for Idaho State, ended up his career second all-time in ISU history in interceptions with 16, and he is the only Bengal in school history to lead the team in interceptions four consecutive years. Robinson, who scored two touchdowns in his career, was known for the big play. Against Sacramento State in 2000, he recovered a fumble in his own end zone in the final minute to seal a 41-39 win. His interception in 2001 against #25 Portland State in the final minute clinched a 23-17 win on Homecoming, and he scored on a 13-yard fumble return against #1 Montana in 2001

Signed Free Agent Contract Buffalo Bills, 2004 Mitchell, a Pocatello native, broke a pair of long-standing ISU records originally set by another famous Pocatello native, Merril Hoge. Mitchell broke Hoge’s career rushing touchdown record with 34 as a Bengal. He also broke Hoge’s record of 216 attempts in a season. Mitchell ended his career third on the all-time list for career rushing yards at ISU, and second in 100-yard games. A versatile player, Mitchell also caught 88 career passes and was a stalwart on special teams.

Allen was drafted in the fourth round by the Kansas City Chiefs after winning the Buck Buchanan Award as the Best Defensive Player in I-AA, voted on by a national panel of media. Allen set the Idaho State single-season sack record with 17.5, a figure that led the nation. He also led the nation in forced fumbles with six, and he was third in tackles for loss with 28. Allen also scored a pair of touchdowns against Cal Poly, including a three-yard touchdown catch as a tight end.

Sale’ Key

Signed Free Agent Contract Cincinnati Bengals, 2005 Key, a four-year veteran for the Bengals, finished his career with the most receptions in ISU history with 187, and he caught a pass in a school record 38 straight games. Key also finished second on ISU’s all-time lists for touchdowns and in receiving yards. Key led the Bengals in receiving yards, touchdowns, and catches as a senior, putting up one of the greatest receiving seasons in Idaho State history.

Edwin Thompson

Signed Free Agent Contract Kansas City Chiefs, 2005 Thompson was a versatile member of the Bengals, earning Honorable Mention All-Big Sky honors at tight end as a senior. Edwin, who caught 25 passes in his career, had his only touchdown in overtime, a 55-52 win over Eastern Washington in 2003. The nephew of former NFL quarterback Jack Thompson, “The Throwin’ Samoan”, Thompson not only was known for his soft hands but his blocking. In fact, in the next to last game of his career, he swapped out his #86 jersey for #78 during a game to play tackle after some injuries to the other linemen, not allowing a sack.

Jeff Charleston

Signed Free Agent Contract Houston Texans, 2006 Charleston finished 14th in the balloting for the Buck Buchanan Award, on the way to earning near-unanimous First Team All-America honors, along with Big Sky Conference Co-Defensive Player of the Year and Newcomer of the Year honors. Jeff, who played just one season for Idaho State, had 12.0 sacks and 19.0 tackles for loss, the 12 sacks being the sixth-most in a single season in school history.

Zeidman finished his career ranked fourth all-time in punting average at Idaho State, averaging 42.1 yards per kick over his three-year career. His 82-yard punt as a junior was the second-longest punt in ISU history, and it set a Holt Arena record as well. A well-rounded athlete, Zeidman also went 8-for12 in his career on field goals, hitting a career-long 50-yarder as a junior. He also served as a kickoff specialist as a senior, and when he wasn’t kicking field goals, he was holding on them as well.

Dietrich-Smith was a workhouse for the Bengals, starting 44 of 45 games in his ISU career, including the final 36 games of his career. He played in every position along the line, eventually anchoring the all-important left tackle position. A winner of the 2009 Bennion Award for team MVP, almost unheard of for an offensive lineman, Dietrich-Smith was also named ISU Male Lifter of the Year. In his final game of his ISU career, he caught a five-yard screen pass on a tackle-eligible play.

D.J. Clark

Signed Free Agent Contract Carolina Panthers, 2009 Clark was a monster cornerback for the Bengals, and was tremendously durable, becoming the only player to ever play and start in 45 games over his career. Clark became one of two Bengals to ever lead the Bengals in interceptions in all four seasons, and he finished his career with 15 interceptions, tied for third in school history. He returned three of those picks for touchdowns, including a 100yarder against Weber State, and he had a stretch where he recorded six consecutive interceptions in the end zone, thwarting opponent red zone chances.

Bengal FOOTBALL

In the fall of 1981, the Idaho State University football team shocked the nation, as the Bengals capped an improbable season with a I-AA national championship. The season was all the more remarkable because in 1979 the Bengals went 0-11, and the championship came just 14 months after The 1981 National ending the longest losing streak in Championship Ring I-AA history at 19 games. After an opening win over Eastern Washington, the Bengals took out defending national champion Boise State in Boise 21-10. They followed that with home wins over a strong Nevada team and Northern Arizona, The 1981 Bengal squad went 12-1 on the way to the NCAA I-AA National and a road win at Portland State. Championship ISU lost at Montana 24-21, but they would not falter again. They knocked off Idaho on the road 24-14, and then scored impressive home wins over Montana State 21-3, and Utah State, 50-24, setting up a winner-take-all showdown with Weber State for the Big Sky title and a berth in the NCAA playoffs. The game went to three overtimes, with ISU surviving a missed 32-yard field goal in the second overtime by WSU’s Roger Ruzek that would have won the game. In the third overtime, Case deBruijn nailed a 33-yard field goal for a 33-30 win. Idaho State then waltzed to the championship game after home wins against Rhode Island 51-0, and South Carolina State 41-12. In the Pioneer Bowl, as the I-AA Head coach Dave Kragthorpe is carried off the field in game was called, ISU went up against Wichita Falls, Texas with the National Championship perennial power Eastern Kentucky, but Trophy the Bengals would not be denied, winThe Pocatello airport was brimming with fans waiting for ning the title with a 34-23 victory. the national champions to return home

Bengal FOOTBALL The Bengals Position-By-Position Idaho State enters the 2009 season with a little bit of momentum in how they finished the 2008 season. Despite just one win last year, the Bengals are a confident group, and a solid corps of returning players and an interesting mix of newcomers has ISU and third-year head coach John Zamberlin cautiously optimistic about the 2009 season. The following is a position-by-position breakdown of the Bengals as they look to rebound in 2009.

the slot role held by Thompson, and has the speed to score from anywhere on the field, while Krosch is a big target at 6-5, with terrific hands. Taylor Barker also returns after playing in one game last year, and four freshmen, Rodrick Rumble, Andrew Benavides, Mo Culpepper, and Shaquille Senegal all come to ISU with huge high school credentials and should all battle for playing time as true freshmen.

He’s joined by a pair of bulldog running mates in Ben Laporta and Ethan Monroe, who redshirted last season.

Offensive Line (5 lettermen returning, 2 lettermen lost, 1 squad member, 1 redshirt, 6 freshmen, 3 JC transfers) Idaho State might have a new line coach in Mike Havens, but he enters with a stocked cupboard as five lettermen return, including four starters in Lance Cartwright, Ryan Henry, Mitch Rudder, and Brad Shedd. The other letterwinner is Braeden Clayson, who should enter the line rotation as a sophomore. The Bengals also have a trio of junior college transfers in Demetrius Grant, Puchi Lesu and Travis Nua, and they join two-time squad member Nick Tranmer. All that depth should allow ISU’s plethora of freshmen, Parker Jolly, Mark Clampit, Chris Hardinger, Talai Livai, Ryan McElwain, and Sean McElwain, all time to hit the weight room and get bigger and stronger while learning the system.

Wide Receivers (4 lettermen returning, 2 letterman lost, 1 squad member, 3 incoming freshmen) Idaho State will need to overcome the loss of all-time leading receiver Eddie Thompson, but the deep receiving corps should be up to the task once again, headed up by senior Jaron Taylor, who leads all returnees with 735 yards last year on 55 catches. Taylor also led the team with six touchdown grabs. Junior Isaiah Burel had a breakout season as well, catching 56 balls for 607 yards. Also returning are a pair of lettermen who look to figure more prominently in 2009 in JD Ponciano and Kelvin Krosch. Ponciano should take over

DEFENSE (6 starters returning, 15 lettermen returning) Defensive Line (5 lettermen returning, 7 lettermen lost, 2 redshirts, 1 squad member, 2 JC transfers, 8 freshmen) ISU’s defensive line was ravaged by injuries, as ISU had 14 different players appear on a two-deep at one point in time during the season. However, ISU returns five of those linemen, losing seven as well. Junior Sean Rutten leads all the returners in tackles, coming off a freshman year in which he was changing positions. The Bengals also have a returning defensive end Jeff Tuua, and three interior linemen in seniors Demetrius Amos and Jason Jones, and sophomore David Tyler. ISU also brings in a pair of redshirts in Jake Rouser and Mykel Durr, and two JC transfers in Rustin Phillips and Chad O’Donnell. That group, barring injuries, should provide the depth to allow eight freshmen a chance to grow and learn outside of the glare of the field in 2009..

Moving over from safety where he was honorable mention All-Big Sky is A.J. Storms, who will benefit from spring practice as a linebacker. ISU also returns part-time starter Nic Edgson, as well as reserves Jeremy Gibson, J.T. Albers, and Daniel Urias, who all saw significant action in 2008.

Secondary (5 lettermen returning, 4 lettermen lost, 3 redshirts, 1 four-year transfer, 2 incoming freshmen) Out is four-year interception leader D.J. Clark, but back is plenty of experience, and a lot of hard hitting. Michael Wright returns after 12 starts at cornerback last year, and Amir Owens and Dustin Tew started four games between them at safety. George Ortiz also returns, and Kelvin Miller was the nickel last year and is looking to move into the starting lineup this year. A boon for the team are three redshirts, including the hard hitting Chris Holmesley, who redshirted last year and returns as a rare JC transfer with a year and a half in experience in the system. Brennan Ghassemiah and Phillip Pleasant both are top prospects and can step in, and ISU added former Nevada starting cornerback Kenny Viser, making this unit perhaps the most improved unit on the squad. ISU has two freshmen as well in Cameron Gupton and Tubotein Taylor, who also plays running back.

Season Outlook

Special Teams (2 lettermen returning, 2 lettermen lost) Idaho State returns preseason All-America punter Jon Vanderwielen, who watched for three seasons before taking over the top role at ISU, averaging 42.4 yards per kick and proving a force in the field position battle. ISU also returns one of their two kickers in Jarrett Huk, who was near perfect in extra points and ended up as ISU’s long kicker last year. The Bengals did lose the services of Mike Ramos, who went 9-for-11 and hit the field goal to send the final game of the season to overtime. Also, ISU needs to find a new longsnapper after Chris Kirkegaard transferred after suffering a torn ACL last year.

In September of 2006, Idaho State University unveiled the Athletic Facilities Master Plan, a plan that features several new facilities and practice areas that will change the look of the upper section of the Idaho State University campus. The new all-encompassing complex will be called “Bengal Village� and it is the focal point of the Athletic Facilities Master Plan, which was the culmination of an 18-month process. Bengal Village now serves as the tangible long-term vision for Bengal Athletics. Bengal Village centers itself around Holt Arena, and it includes an indoor practice facility, Papenberg Field (an outdoor synthetic turf practice football field), a basketball arena, Miller Ranch Stadium for softball, tennis courts, and a new building connecting various new facilities that will house new offices, an academic center, weight rooms, training area, and locker rooms, along with a potential Hall of Fame and meeting space.

ISU President Dr. Arthur C. Vailas addresses the media regarding Bengal Village

Papenberg Field (named after a lead gift of $1.6 million from Sylvia Papenberg and her late husband Don) will be located on the east side of Holt Arena where a parking lot is currently located. Miller Ranch Stadium will be located on the site of the current South Practice Field. The parking lot to the east of the current practice field will become the site of a new indoor practice facility that would include a 60-70 yard football field that can be used by the football team as well as other ISU athletic teams. The facility would also include three indoor basketball/volleyball courts as well.

The north side of Holt Arena will be the site of the new basketball arena, which when completed will seat approximately 7,500 fans. The new basketball complex will be connected to Holt Arena. On the south side of Holt Arena, on the site of the current South Practice Field, a new softball complex will be constructed, using Holt Arena as a hitters backdrop. The plan will also include several upgrades to Holt Arena, including seismic improvements, heating and ventilation improvements, new turf, and acoustical improvements, along with the addition of a new press box and donor suites. Centralized and connected to the indoor practice faciland Holt Arena will be a new building designed with locker rooms, a permanent Hall of Fame, offices, training room, meeting rooms, and potential booster areas as well. This building will have access to both Holt Arena, the indoor practice facility, the softball complex, and the outdoor football practice field. The plan was developed in conjunction with the vision statement developed by ISU Athletics and the Planning Committee. The goal was to develop a plan that is both enviable and practical for meeting the needs of a NCAA Division I athletic program. The Bengal Village concept took 11 months in all from the start of meetings in November of 2005.

John Zamberlin Head Coach Pacific Lutheran, 1979 3rd Season-Idaho State

30

John Zamberlin enters his third season at the helm of the Idaho State Bengals, one with renewed hope and optimism. Zamberlin was named the 24th head coach in Idaho State University’s rich football history on December 15, 2006, bringing with him 10 years of head coaching experience, and a track record of winning games and graduating student-athletes, and he has been an immediate hit in Pocatello and Southeast Idaho. Playing one of the nation’s toughest non-conference schedules last season, and doing so again this season, Zamberlin has been able to build his program to the point where his system can now be fully implemented. Idaho State improved greatly towards the end of last season, and shook off a long losing streak with a thrilling win in the season finale one week after battling toe-totoe with national runner-up Montana in Missoula. ISU’s end of season play and progress has Bengal Nation excited for the 2009 season, despite dates with FBS powers Arizona State and Oklahoma on the docket. Zamberlin has also been lauded for a three stellar recruiting classes, featuring a wealth of homegrown Idaho talent. The list of career accomplishments is long for Zamberlin, as he now has a career coaching record of 67-60, including a 4235 mark over the past seven years. Central Washington won back-to-back Great Northwest Athletic Conference titles in 2004 and 2005, and Zamberlin won GNAC Coach of the Year honors both of those years. All told, Zamberlin was named GNAC Coach of the Year in 1998, 2002, 2004, and 2005. In 2003, the Wildcats were preseason ranked #1, and that came on the heels of an incredible 2002 season. In 2002, Central Washington ended the season ranked #5 (DII Football.com & AFCA), going 11-0 in the regular season, including a 31-16 win over Big Sky co-champion Montana State, on their way to the NCAA Division II playoffs.

Joe Cullen Defensive Line Massachusetts, 1990 1st Season-Idaho State Joe Cullen is entering his first season with Idaho State University, assisting with the defensive line after spending the previous three years in the National Football League. Cullen spent the previous three years with the Detroit Lions, and while the Lions did not experience much success as a team, going 0-16 last year, Cullen’s defensive line was one of the few bright spots during their season. Last year the Lions finished 10th in the NFL in sacks per attempt, and the defensive line finished in the NFL’s top 10 for the second straight year in sacks. Rookie defensive end Cliff Avril led all first-year players in sacks with 6.0 and in forced fumbles with four. In 2007, the defensive line improved from 24th in the NFL to ninth in sacks as the unit registered 28.5 sacks, good for seventh in the league, with three different lineman registering career-highs. Cullen also instituted the “Joe Cullen Big Man Camp” for lineman in the Detroit inner-city area. Prior to the Lions, Cullen had 16 years of Division I experience coaching defensive lines, including four as a defensive coordinator. His longest tenure was at the University of Richmond, where he coached from 1992 through 1998, and again in 2000, serving as the defensive coordinator in 1997, ‘98, and 2000. While as defensive coordinator with the Spiders, Richmond had a great defensive run, leading the Atlantic 10 in total defense all three years, including ranking fourth nationally in rushing defense and 14th in scoring defense in 2000, despite playing the nation’s toughest schedule, according to the NCAA. The 1998 Spiders went 9-2, winning the Atlantic 10 title and advancing to the NCAA playoffs. After Richmond went 5-6 in 1999 and Cullen spent a year on staff at LSU coaching the defensive line there, he came back in 2000, and so did the Spider defense, helping Richmond go 10-3, advancing to the NCAA quarterfinals. Cullen has also had coaching stops in the Football Bowl Subdivision level at Memphis, Indiana, and Illinois, where he was a part of Ron Zook’s first staff in Champaign before heading to the NFL with the Lions. Cullen has a long history with Zamberlin, as he played under Zamberlin at the University of Massachusetts, where he was a nose guard from 1986-89, earning All-Yankee Conference honors three times. After ending his playing career in 1989 with a streak of 45 straight games started, Cullen then joined Zamberlin on the coaching staff there. The two also served together at the University of Richmond from 1995-96, meaning the stint in Pocatello will be their third together. Cullen earned his bachelor’s degree in sports management from UMass in 1990, and he has earned credits at both Illinois and Richmond towards a master’s degree.

Brian Strandley is entering his third season with Idaho State University, and is serving as both the defensive coordinator and the defensive line coach. Strandley joined the staff after spending the 2006 season as the defensive line coach at Eastern Washington. Strandley, however, is no stranger to John Zamberlin, having served as a defensive coach for nine years at Central Washington

University. Last year saw ISU’s defense ravaged by injuries, but true to Strandley’s leadership, the squad never quit, and started turning in solid performances. The squad still turned in several big performances, including ISU’s pass defense allow 112 yards or less in three of the final four games of the season. In his first year with the club, Idaho State’s defense showed a knack for the big play, scoring five touchdowns on the year, including game-changing fumble returns on back-toback drives in a win over Portland State. All told, ISU nearly doubled their takeaways (23, up from 12 in 2006), and they increased their totals in sacks, tackles for loss, passes defended, and forced fumbles, all while having seven players earn honorable mention All-Big Sky, including a pair of Strandley’s defensive linemen. Strandley was hired at CWU when Zamberlin took over as head coach in 1997. He helped the Wildcats compile a 57-36 record in nine seasons, including an 8-2 record in the 2005 season. Central won its last seven games and was undefeated in the Great Northwest Athletic Conference. Strandley was a four-year starter at Idaho from 199194, and was Idaho’s 1993 defensive captain, finishing his career with 101 tackles. When he was a junior, the Vandals advanced to the semifinals of the NCAA Division I-AA Playoffs, and in 1994, Idaho led I-AA in rushing defense (65.3 yards per game).

BRandon “Cherokee” Valeria Cornerbacks Central Washington, 1999 3rd Season-Idaho State Brandon “Cherokee” Valeria is entering his third season with Idaho State University, and he will again oversee the cornerbacks. Valeria joined the Bengals after spending two seasons on head coach John Zamberlin’s staff at Central Washington, coaching the corners. ISU’s cornerbacks were thin in 2008, but under Valeria, they still performed above expectations, headlined by D.J. Clark. The senior graduated to the NFL’s Carolina Panthers after leading the team in interceptions for the fourth straight season. Clark picked off five passes to finish in the top five in career interceptions, and he earned Second Team All-Big Sky after being named honorable mention All-Big Sky in 2007, a season in which he picked off four passes, two for touchdowns. Just one year after ISU corners accounted for half of the teams’ interceptions, Bengal corners in 2008 picked up 85.7 percent of the teams’ picks. Valeria has had a player rank among the nation’s top 30 in interceptions in each of the last four years, dating back to his time with the Wildcats. While at Central, Valeria helped Brandon Kennedy earn preseason All-American honors in 2006 as a sophomore. In 2005, Central won the GNAC title, going 8-2 overall and undefeated in league play. Central’s defense was ranked 11th nationally, picking up 33 takeaways. Of those 33 takeaways, 11, or 33% were directly attributed to cornerbacks, and 21 came for the whole secondary. Both of Valeria’s corners earned First Team All-GNAC honors. Valeria has also coached in minor league professional football, in the high school ranks, and with the Everett Hawks of the National Indoor Football League. All of his stops have turned up success stories.

Nick Whitworth Recruiting Coordinator/Running Backs Idaho State, 2002 7th Season-Idaho State

36

Nick Whitworth begins his seventh season with the Idaho State coaching staff, and he is in charge of both ISU’s running backs and he serves as recruiting coordinator. Nick also spent two seasons as a student assistant with the Bengals. In his five years as recruiting coordinator, Whitworth’s recruiting classes have all been highly touted. Whitworth, a Mackay native, has proven to be able to get some of the top student-athletes in the west, and in Idaho in particular as the Bengals have signed the most in-state scholarship athletes in each of the past five years. Last season, ISU rushers totaled 1,053 yards through nagging injuries, scoring 14 touchdowns. Taking after their coach, ISU running backs totaled 337 touches in 2007 and they lost just one fumble all year, that coming in the rain at Cal Poly. Last season, Whitworth’s protoge Josh Barnett broke the school’s all-time rushing record with 3,412 yards, rushing for 1,022, making him the first running back in school history with back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons. Barnett’s 2,129 yards in back-to-back seasons broke Whitworth’s own record of 2,039 yards. Last year, ISU rushers accounted for 1,483 yards and 11 of ISU’s 12 rushing touchdowns. In 2006, Barnett earned First Team All-Big Sky honors after rushing for 1,117 yards, the third-most in school history. Overall, ISU’s running backs rushed for 1,358 yards and 13 touchdowns, and that comes on the heels of the 2005 campaign that saw the group rush for 1,714 yards and 23 touchdowns, the best numbers in over 20 years from that position. Both Josh Barnett and Ken Cornist earned all-conference honors, and Cornist set a Bengal freshman record with 14 rushing scores as both rushed for over 780 yards. Handling the running backs probably comes second nature to Nick. Whitworth had a standout four-year career at Idaho State from 1997-2000, the last two years as the team’s starting tailback. Whitworth rushed for 1,106 yards as a junior, the third most in school history. Included in that total was a school record 273 yards against Fort Lewis College, which broke the school record. That game came on the heels of the season opener when Whitworth raced for 221 yards against Eastern Oregon, making his 494 yards rushing in back-to-back games the most in school history. “The Mackay Missile” as he was called, also ended his career on a resounding note, with a 201-yard game in a 27-24 win over FBS Utah State in Logan. Whitworth is the only Bengal in school history with three 200-yard games to his credit, owning three of the eight 200-yard games in school history. On the ISU career charts, he currently ranks third all-time in rushing with 2,353 yards and seventh in all-purpose yards per game at 92.9, and 10th in kickoff return average at 21.2 yards per game. The 30-year old Whitworth (8-20-79) is married to Erin Whitworth, and they have a one-year old daughter, Olivia. He earned his undergraduate degree from Idaho State in 2002.

Jared Allen - 2003 Buck Buchanan Award Winner

64

Chattanooga, TN (Sports Network) - Idaho State defensive end Jared Allen was named the 10th winner of the Buck Buchanan Award at the Division I-AA College Football Awards on the eve of the 2003 I-AA national championship. The Buchanan Award is presented annually to the top defensive player in I-AA football. The fourth-round draft choice of the Kansas City Chiefs recorded 17.5 sacks, 102 tackles, 28 tackles for loss, six forced fumbles, three recovered fumbles, and nine pass deflections during 2003, ranking among the Big Sky Conference leaders in several defensive categories. Allen, a First-Team All-America choice, led ISU to an 8-4 record in 2003, helping the school post its first back-to-back eight win seasons in school history. Idaho State finished the regular season ranked No. 21 in the nation. Said Allen, “Being named the recipient of the Buck Buchanan Award is truly an amazing honor. There were so many deserving candidates this year, it was an honor just to be named in such an elite group. A lot of credit to this year goes to our team’s successes over the past few years, and most of all to my teammates, because football is a team game. I certainly share this with them.” Allen was the eighth consecutive senior to win the award, and the first defensive end since North Carolina A&T’s Chris McNeil in 1997. Allen was the first player from the Big Sky Conference to win the Buck Buchanan Award and the first Big Sky player to take a major I-AA honor since Northern Arizona’s Archie Amerson won the Walter Payton Award in 1996. Allen was at his best in ISU’s seven conference games, posting all but two of his sacks in league play. The Los Gatos, Calif., native was basically unblockable against opponents such as Eastern Washington (4 sacks), Montana (3.5 sacks), Weber State (2 sacks), and Portland State (2 sacks). After recording just four tackles for loss through the first four games, Allen exploded for 24 in his final eight contests combined. The senior had a string of three straight games with a forced fumble, and ended the year by recovering a trio of fumbles in his final two outings. On the offensive end, the 6-6, 275-pounder lined up to catch a three-yard touchdown pass in an upset of Cal Poly on Nov. 15th. Allen finished his outstanding collegiate career with 38.5 sacks and 250 tackles. Allen received 28 first-place votes and 253 points from the panel of 91 I-AA sports information directors and selected media. Following Allen in the voting were Illinois State linebacker Boomer Grigsby, who earned 13 first-place votes and 193 total points, and Wofford safety Matt Nelson, who registered 10 first-place votes and 160 total points. Grigsby eventually became a teammate of Allen’s in Kansas City. The Buck Buchanan Award was established in 1995 by The Sports Network. The Award is named for All-Pro defensive end Junious “Buck” Buchanan, who played for the Kansas City Chiefs after beginning his career at Grambling State University. Former Buchanan winners include former Dallas Cowboys All-Pro linebacker Dexter Coakley (Appalachian State, 1995, 1996), Oakland Raiders starting LB Ed Hartwell (Western Illinois, 2000), and Jacksonville Jaguars starting defensive back Rashean Mathis (Bethune-Cookman, 2002).

Bengal FOOTBALL The Big Sky Conference The Big Sky Conference enters its 47th year of athletic com-

petition in 2009-10. The Big Sky is an NCAA Division I member in all sports, with member institutions classified in the Football Championship Subdivision (formally I-AA).The Big Sky returned to a nine-team format in 2006 with the addition of Northern Colorado. The current lineup includes Eastern Washington, Idaho State, Montana, Montana State, Northern Arizona, Northern Colorado, Portland State, Sacramento State and Weber State. The league has become one of the strongest Division I conferences in the West and is a national leader in I-AA football. The Big Sky Conference was established in 1963 by six charter members – Idaho, Idaho State, Gonzaga, Montana, Montana State and Weber State. Those six schools formed the foundation of the Big Sky before the league expanded in 1970 by adding Boise State and Northern Arizona. Gonzaga left the Sky in 1979 and was replaced by Nevada, which gave the league eight members. The conference grew to nine schools in 1987 with the addition of Eastern Washington. The 1990s saw change in the makeup of the league, beginning in 1992 when Nevada departed and put the Big Sky back at eight teams. In 1996 Boise State and Idaho left and at the same time the conference added Portland State, Sacramento State and Cal State Northridge. The Big Sky maintained nine teams for five years before Cal State Northridge departed in the spring of 2001, leaving the league at eight teams until 2006. With the addition of Northern Colorado, the Big Sky spreads across seven states spanning from the Pacific Ocean to the Rocky Mountain Front. The Big Sky is represented along the entire west coast with schools in Washington, Oregon and California. League schools also range up and down the Rocky Mountains with institutions in Montana, Idaho, Utah, Arizona and now Colorado. Of the eight western-most states in the contiguous United States only one, Nevada, is not represented in the Big Sky. On Feb 25, 1963, the name Big Sky was adopted by the six presidents of the charter members as the name of the new conference. The name Big Sky originated in a novel written by the late A.B. (Bud) Guthrie of Great Falls, Mont., in 1947 entitled “The Big Sky.” Jack Hollowell, a former Montana advertising director, promoted the Big Sky theme for the Treasure State, and Harry Missildine of the Spokane Spokesman-Review called for the newly formed league to be named the Big Sky Conference in his column dated Feb. 20, 1963. The Big Sky sponsors championships in 14 sports, including men’s and women’s cross country, indoor and outdoor track and field, basketball and tennis. In addition, there are also championships in football, and women’s volleyball, golf and soccer. The 2009-10 season will mark the 22nd year that the Big Sky Conference will sponsor championships in women’s sports. The former Mountain West Conference existed from 1982-88, sponsoring championships for women’s sports at the same institutions the Big Sky had men’s programs. The Big Sky merged with the Mountain West in 1988, forming one league for both men and women. Doug Fullerton, the fifth commissioner of the Big Sky Conference, will enter his 15th year at the helm. Fullerton took over the Big Sky on July 1, 1995, replacing longtime commissioner Ron Stephenson. Stephenson served the league for 14 years. Steve Belko was the commissioner from 1977-81 while John Roning held the post from 1971-77. The first league commissioner was Jack Friel, who served from 1963-71.

Ponciano’s return was five-yards deep) Longest Punt Returns (All-Time, 70+ yards) 1. 88td Milton “Dubby” Holt vs. College of Idaho (11-11-1937) 2. 86td Alfredo Anderson vs. Adams State (9-3-1994) 3. 85td DeRonn Finley vs. Sacramento State (9-23-1900) 85td Billy Satterfield vs. South Dakota State (9-23-1967) 5. 83td Emery Beckles at Weber State (10-25-03) 83td Carlis Harris at Idaho (10-3-1970) 7. 80td Emery Beckles vs. Northern Arizona (11-9-2002) 80td Vern Adams vs. Montana State (11-12-1950) 80td Mike Gates vs. Ricks College (10-25-1936) 10. 78td Eddie Thompson vs. Cal Poly (10-27-2007) (NOTE: Anderson’s 86-yard touchdown is the modern record, which is from 1947 forward, when ISU became a four-year school. Dubby Holt returned a punt 88-yards for a touchdown against the College of Idaho in 1937’s Homecoming game)

Merril Hoge is one of Idaho State’s most famous alums, and certainly one of the best home grown talents to ever come out of Pocatello.

Bengal FOOTBALL

Great Moments

In 2004, Idaho State University celebrated the 100th season of football. In conjunction with that milestone, a radio campaign of the top moments in Idaho State history were presented over the course of the season. Enjoy this trip down memory lane and enjoy the moments that made it onto the list, plus a few new additions.

from the “Bantams” to the “Tigers”, defeated Blackfoot High School 20-7 in his first game. He would go on to coach eight seasons, leading the Bengals to a 25-24-1 record. He also is credited with starting ISU’s first booster organization, the “I” Club, as well as helping the school adopt the nickname “Bengals” in 1927.

year head coach Guy Wicks, Idaho State’s 1935 Bengals were the first team to play an entire season of at least eight games without a loss, going 7-0-1, but it was ISU’s defense from that squad that will go down as the best in school history. Over the eight game season, the Bengals pitched four shutouts, allowing just 26 points and four touchdowns all season. The defense actually was a carry over from the 1934 squad, as those two teams combined to allow a paltry 57 points over 15 games with seven shutouts. October 29, 1937. Dubby Holt’s Record Return. Idaho State’s 1937 Homecoming victory over the College of Idaho was like most of ISU’s other early Homecoming wins, except for the play of Dubby Holt. The man who raced Jesse Owens to a dead heat took a punt on his own 12-yard line, and left everyone in a cloud of dust. When he finally stopped 88 yards later, he owned the longest punt return for a touchdown in school history. In the following 71 years, that record hasn’t been topped, and it is still the longest standing individual record in ISU football history. October, 1940. Atkinson’s Last Gasp Pass Stuns Albion. In a game that featured four lead changes, it was the last that was the most dramatic. Trailing 26-24, the Bengals had moved into Albion territory with a chance for one final play. In an era where the forward pass wasn’t used by the Bengals all that much, tailback George Atkinson took a pitch and lofted a pass down field and into the end zone, where Pete Gallagher came down with it after the official’s gun went off to signal the end of the game. That late score is the first recorded walk-off winning play in ISU’s history, and it gave ISU a 31-26 win. September 30, 1950. Lyle Andersen’s Sneak Surprises Everyone. Senior quarterback Lyle Andersen might be Idaho State’s least likely 100-yard rusher ever. In a home game against Western State, the Bengals found themselves backed up on their own 1-yard line. Head coach John Vesser called for a quarterback sneak up the middle by Andersen to clear some room on first down.

2009 Idaho State Football Media Guide

Andersen plowed past his center, and found the field wide open. Amazingly, Andersen went untouched 99 yards for a touchdown, demoralizing Western State and setting the stage for a 53-13 win. Andersen would rush for 109 yards in the contest. October 11, 1952. Williams wasn’t the best, but he was the first. Idaho State has gained a reputation for producing some of college football’s best kickers and punters, but that tradition began way back in 1952, during Idaho State’s first-ever undefeated season. Carl Williams, a defensive back and a running back by trade kicked a field goal in Idaho State’s 17-6 win over Colorado College. That field goal was the first ever in the history of the storied Bengal program.

Babe Caccia (in the tie) talks to his troops prior to the 1958 opener.

September 27, 1958. Babe Caccia Becomes ISU’s Winningest Coach. Entering the 1958 season, the Bengals were coming off a fourth conference title, and 13 consecutive wins. Also entering the 1958 season, Babe Caccia had won 41 games in his ISU coaching career, equaling the total of the man he replaced, John Vesser, for the most in school history. Opening against the Eastern Washington Eagles, and led by All-American guard Dee Pankratz, the Bengals won 30-7, and Caccia would go on to win 37 more games, giving him 79 in his brilliant 11-year career. September 27, 1958. The Koetter Era Begins. The 1958 season opener against Eastern Washington marked the college debut of what can be called the first family of ISU foot-


2009 Idaho State Football Media Guide

The Bengals dive over for a touchdown against Eastern Washington in 1958, the first game as a bengal for Jim Koetter, jump-starting the Koetter dynasty at Idaho State.

September 19, 1959. The Bengals participate in Hawaiian History. In 1959, America grew from 48 to 50 states with the addition of Alaska and Hawaii to the United States. Hawaii, the 50th state, turned out to be Idaho State’s football opponent on Statehood Day. The Rainbows, missing the big celebration back home, had their own at Davis Field as they defeated the Bengals 14-8. Unfazed by the loss, the Bengals wound up winning the final six games of the season, claiming their fifth and final Rocky Mountain Conference championship. October 8, 1960. The Defense Goes on the Offensive. The 1960 Homecoming game against Colorado College was a 77-8 blitzing by the Bengals, a game that still holds the record for ISU’s largest margin of victory at 69 points. However, the game also holds a differ-

more amazing, the Bengals didn’t even allow a completion. That never happened before, and it hasn’t happened since. September 2, 1978. Domo Arigato, Mr. Osaka. There are home games, there are road games, there are neutral site games, and then there is the 1978 season opener. Idaho State and Utah State, located just 90 miles apart, opened the 1978 season…. in Osaka, Japan. As part of a cultural exchange, the two programs traveled halfway around the world to open the season. The travel took its toll on both teams as the Bengals dropped a sloppy game to Utah State 10-0. The travel took its toll coming back too as ISU was shutout the next week, although they finally broke into the win column in their home opener, beating Portland State 27-13. November 11, 1978. Talk About the Defense Not Showing Up. Idaho State’s trip to the University of Idaho for a late 1978 Big Sky game figured to be a leisurely one hour flight. Head Coach Bud Hake had two planes to take the team, offense on one plane, the defense on the other. An hour later the offense’s plane touched down, but the defense’s plane never left the runway in Pocatello. Mechanical problems forced the cancellation of the flight, and since the team left the day of the game, the Bengals were forced to take a loss, 2-0, against the Vandals, although it was officially recorded by NCAA as a “no contest”. September 27, 1980. The Beginning of a New Era. Before the Bengals could become the greatest, they had to learn how to win, and that moment came early in 1980. In just the third game under new head coach Dave Kragthorpe, the Bengals ended a 19game losing streak, at the time the longest in I-AA history, with a 59-33 thrashing of Portland State and their five receiver runand-shoot offense. After 20 games, the Bengals finally tasted victory, and just 20 games later, they would taste a national championship.

ball. Jim Koetter lettered in both 1958-59, the first member of the Koetter family to touch ISU football. Jim later coached the Bengals for five years, leading ISU to their second playoff berth. Two of his sons also played for ISU. Dirk Koetter was a quarterback on the 1981 national championship team, and is currently the offensive coordinator for the Jacksonville Jaguars. Brent Koetter twice led Idaho State in interceptions and later coached both Pocatello and Highland High School to state football titles.

Great Moments

November 21, 1981. Case DeBruijn’s Kick Ends an Epic Battle. For the finale of the 1981 season, Idaho State and Weber State met at Holt Arena for the Big Sky title. ISU survived a 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown by Weber State, and the game came down to overtime. After surviving again, this on a missed 32-yard field goal by Roger Ruzek that would have won it for the Wildcats in the second overtime, Hall of Fame kicker Case DeBruijn nailed a 33-yard field goal at the end of the third overtime to give ISU a 33-30 win and the Big Sky title in the longest game in ISU history.

December 19, 1981. The Bengals Reach the Pinnacle. Idaho State climbed the long road back from worst to first as All-American quarterback Mike Machurek threw for 330 yards, the last of his eight career 300-yard games as the Bengals defeated Eastern Kentucky 34-23 in Wichita Falls, Texas to win the I-AA National Championship. The win capped a remarkable turnaround from an 0-11 season just two years prior.

November 23, 1985. Merril Hoge Becomes ISU’s First 1,000-yard Rusher. Heading into the 1985 season finale against Eastern Washington, Pocatello native Merril Hoge had rushed for 892 yards, and he needed nine yards to better his school record for rushing yards in a season. He also needed 108 to become the first Bengal to ever rush for 1,000 yards. Despite a 42-21 loss, Hoge did his part, rushing for 149 yards, his second-best single-game total ever to get to 1,041 yards, becoming the first ISU rusher to 1,000 yards. To date, he is just one of four to accomplish the feat. September 12, 1987. A Good Ol’ Fashioned Texas Shootout. The season opener between Idaho State and Texas A&I (now Texas A&M Kingsville) kept the scoreboard operator busy the entire night. The two teams combined for the first combined 100-point game in Holt Arena history as the Javalinas defeated the Bengals 52-51 in a classic game. Big efforts abounded, including a 93-yard kickoff return for a touchdown and 100 yards receiving by Butch Caston and a 103-yard rushing effort by Corky Federico. Despite ISU’s record 28-point third quarter outburst, ISU fell a point short. November 10, 1990. Jason’s Back One Last Time. Jason Whitmer, ISU’s starting quarterback from 1987-90, won just nine games in his career, but it wasn’t for a lack of trying. Whitmer threw for 300 yards a record 12 times, including a 336-yard performance in his last win, a 30-27 decision over Mesa State. Whitmer’s four year career ended with ISU career records for yards, attempts, completions, touchdowns and of course, 300yard games. Jason Whtimer owns nearly

September 12, 1992. The Globe of Death. The Philadelphia Eagles have “The Miracle at the Meadowlands”, the San Francisco 49ers have “The Catch”, but the Idaho State Bengals have “The Globe of Death”. After Boise State scored a touchdown with 22 seconds left to give the Broncos what seemed like a 20-17 win, BSU kicked off, and the Bengals pulled out their bag of tricks. After Carlos Reed received the squib kick, all 11 players huddled together and then sprinted out in different directions. Robert Johnson actually had the ball and returned it to the BSU 42-yard line, and a personal foul moved the ball into field goal range (the play was confusing for the statisticians too, as Sylvester Jones was officially credited with the return). Going for the win, backup quarterback Paul Putnam hit Rommie Wheeler for a touchdown with five seconds left for an improbable 24-20 win. September 21, 1996. Marcus Jackson Suffers a Tragic Injury. It was a simple tackle late in the first half of an otherwise non-descript 47-0 rout of Montana-Western. It was a tackle that would change a life and touch a community. Marcus Jackson suffered a traumatic spinal injury on the tackle, becoming paralyzed from the neck down. Jackson, however, returned to school the following year, and in the summer of 1999, he truly became one of the most heroic figures in ISU history when he battled to earn a bachelor’s degree, despite what some would say was an insurmountable handicap. Insurmountable to most, but not to Marcus Jackson. November 16, 1996. Ed Coleman’s Shining Moment. Ed Coleman played only one season for Idaho State University, as a reserve running back who basically was not even on the two-deep during the season. But, pressed into service in the next-to-last game of 1996, Coleman had his day in the sun as he rushed for 232 yards against Portland State, the second-most in school history at that time. The game would prove to be the only 100-yard rushing game of Coleman’s career.

every single major passing record at Idaho State.

October 23, 1997. James Ferrell Kicks ISU into an Inadvertent Controversy. Leading 43-31 over Southern Utah with four seconds left, Idaho State kicker James Ferrell stood on the sidelines with four made field goals, seemingly settling for a tie of the ISU singlegame record. However, head coach Tom Walsh called timeout to allow Ferrell, a fifth-year senior, an opportunity to set the record. James Ferrell’s school record Ferrell kicked that fifth field goal brought about record breaking a potato boycott, disparaging field goal, but comments about Holt Arena, Walsh’s timeout and eventually it led to the end infuriated Thun- of C. Ray Gregory’s coaching derbird head tenure at Southern Utah. coach C. Ray Gregory, who felt that ISU had tried to run up the score. Gregory publicly announced he was giving up potatoes for a year, and he would only eat them again after defeating ISU the next season. Gregory’s potato fast lasted another year as ISU dealt the T-Birds a 50-33 loss the following season. September 19, 1998. A Game Without a Touchdown. Big Sky football usually means lots of offense and lots of scoring, unless it’s the 1998 meeting between the Bengals and the Weber State Wildcats. Despite a 254-yard rushing effort by Wildcat Morgan Welch, neither the Wildcats nor the Bengals could find the endzone. Weber State got two Scott Shields field goals, and ISU got only a Pete Garces field goal in a 6-3 loss to Weber State. The game remains the only game in Holt Arena history without a touchdown being scored.


2009 Idaho State Football Media Guide His 494 yards in back-to-back games easily stands as a school record.

November 21, 1998. Pete Garces’s Big Boot. Pete Garces was a late signee to the Idaho State roster, but he might have been 1998’s most important. Possessing arguably the strongest leg in school history, Garces would go on to tie an NCAA record for most career 50-yard field goals with 11. In the ’98 finale against Cal State Northridge, ISU tight end Robert McBride dropped a sure touchdown pass on third down from the Matador 42. With the crowd still buzzing, Peter Garces trotted out for a 60-yard field goal. The ball was hit with such force that it crossed the goalposts midway up, giving him the longest I-AA field goal without a tee at that time. The points were the difference in the season ending 32-29 win. September 4 & 11, 1999. The Mackay Missile Runs Rampant. Entering 1999, junior running back Nick Whitworth wanted to show ISU’s new coaching staff he could be an impact running back. Mission accomplished. Whitworth opened the season with a 221-yard effort against Eastern Oregon, the most rushing yards by an ISU back in Holt Arena history, bettering the old record that had stood for eight years. Whitworth’s record never made it to eight days as he rolled up a Holt and school record 273 yards on the ground against Ft. Lewis the very next week.

September 9, 2000. A Personal Comeback for DeRonn Finley. In an otherwise forgettable 58-10 season opening thrashing of Montana Tech, DeRonn Finley returned to the Bengal lineup nearly two years after suffering multiple leg fractures in a spring break car accident that claimed the life of his teammate Jacori Rufus. Finley, who was told he would never walk again, would go on to lead the 2000 team in receptions, receiving yards, punt return average, kickoff return average, and all-purpose yards and was a finalist for the Disney Most Inspirational Athlete Award. November 18, 2000. Nick Whitworth’s Career Capper Quite the Effort. The Mackay Missile, running back Nick Whitworth, ended his career in grand style. With ISU at 5-5, the Bengals traveled to frozen Logan, Utah for a finale with 5-5 Utah State. Whitworth rushed for 201 yards, and caught a critical seven-yard

November 16, 2002. Eddie Johnson’s Record Setting Night. Punter Eddie Johnson entered his final career home game with one last shot to set a Holt Arena punting record. He ended up setting five. Johnson uncorked six punts for a ridiculous 61.5-yard average, and a 61.3-yard net average, setting both ISU and NCAA single-game records in the process. Included in those six punts were a 67yard boot, a 70-yard boot, and a Holt Arena record tying 80-yard kick, which traveled off his foot at the ISU 8-yard line and landed on the Cal Poly 10 before bounding through the end zone, past the Bengal Dancers, and off the wall beyond the field of play. Johnson was eventually drafted in the sixth round by the Minnesota Vikings in 2003 NFL Draft. October 4, 2003. Idaho State and Eastern Washington Ignite Offensive Fireworks. It was what Big Sky football was all about….offense. Idaho State and Eastern Washington hooked up for 958 yards, 165 plays, 15 touchdowns, 107 points, and one heck of a comeback. Down 42-28 with just over five minutes left, the Bengals scored and forced an Eagle punt. Emery Beckles returned it 65 yards, setting up the tying touchdown with three minutes left. Running back Isaac Mitchell gave the Bengals a 55-52 win in the second overtime with the team’s eighth and final touchdown of the night. October 18, 2003. Mark Hetherington’s Heroics Cap a Homecoming Epic. In a game that will go down as one of the all-time classics, the Bengals ended 10 years of frustration with a 43-40 double overtime win over fifthranked Montana. In a game that featured six lead changes and six ties, the Griz tied the game at 34 on a 54-yard field goal with no time left. After both teams traded field goals, Montana was up 40-37 in the second overtime when quarterback Mark Hetherington, who threw for 398 yards in the contest, found sophomore Shedrack Okoebor for a

13-yard touchdown, giving the Bengals a 43-40 win, and the capacity crowd a Homecoming to remember. December 17, 2003. Jared Allen Wins the Buchanan Award. Jared Allen’s 2003 season was monstrous by anyone’s standards, leading the nation with a school record 17.5 sacks. Allen also led the nation in forced fumbles, and ranked third in tackles for losses. His season’s crowning moment however came off the field, when he was awarded the Buck Buchanan Award as the national best defensive player in I-AA football. He became Idaho State’s first major college football award winner, and was later drafted in the fourth round by the Kansas City Chiefs, which interestingly, is where Buck Buchanan spent most of his professional career. November 6, 2005. Jaret Johnson’s Miracle Kick. Things looked bleak when Portland State’s Eric Azorr kicked a field goal for a 34-33 Viking lead, and ISU got the ball at their own 35 with no time outs and 23 seconds left. However, the Bengals ran off five plays, including a key 12-yard completion by Matt Hagler to Akilah Lacey to the PSU 37 with seven seconds left. Out trotted senior kicker Jaret Johnson, who was having an All-American season, other than a signature kick. Johnson lined up for a career-long 54-yarder, and drilled it home, giving the Bengals a 36-34 win, and Johnson the longest gamewinning kick in Idaho State history. It also gave him his signature kick on the way to First Team All-American honors.

Great Moments

Pete Garces tied the NCAA record for the longest field goal without a tee when he kicked this 60-yard field goal against Cal State Northridge in the 1998 season finale, a win that knocked Northridge from the I-AA playoffs.

October 16 and 23, 1999. McCarthy’s Back-to-Back Explosion. The son of ISU Hall of Fame tight end John McCarthy, quarterback Kevin McCarthy spent most of his career as a backup quarterback, but he was thrust into a starting role in 1999, and McCarthy showed everyone what he could do. McCarthy threw for the second-most yards in ISU history with a 477-yard performance Kevin McCarthy had the greatest against Eastern back-to-back passing games ever Washington. Just by an ISU quarterback. one week later, McCarthy was at it again, throwing for 553 yards against Southern Utah. The 1,030 yards ranks as the most ever by an ISU quarterback in back-toback games.

Idaho State bolted out to a 28-9 first half lead on the way to winning the I-AA National Championship 34-23 over Eastern Kentucky. The title was the third NCAA title for the institution, following boxing in 1953 and 1957. Idaho State got a lift from an unlikely source in backup quarterback Dirk Koetter, who threw for a first down on a fake punt to lead ISU to their first score. Trailing 9-7 early in the second, Mike Machurek led three straight scoring drives of 52, 80, and 38 yards, tossing two touchdowns in the process for a 28-9 halftime edge. The Bengals were up 28-16 when ISU put the game away with an eight play, 74-yard drive capped by a short Lamar Fite run two seconds into the fourth quarter. The Bengals then chewed up nearly 10 minutes of the remaining clock time and were crowned champions of I-AA football.
