Glenville State Postgame Notes

• Matt Wilmer’s 100-yard kick return for a touchdown was the first of his career. It was technically a 102-yard kick return, but NCAA statisical guidelines mandate the maximum yardage on any play is 100 yards. Jerome Hoes had a 101-kickoff return for Fairmont State in 1978, but the NAIA guidelines allowed for plays to be longer than 100 yards at that time. • It was the first kickoff return for a touchdown for Fairmont State since Zack Page accomplished it in 2009 against WV State. • Freshman Shad Alexander led FSU in rushing with 10 carries for 53 yards. Daniel Monroe was held to under 100 yards rushing for the second-straight game. • Chris St. Hilaire’s touchdown reception was his first of the season and the seventh of his career. • Bobby Vega’s two touchdown passes were the first of his career at Fairmont State. • Mark Sampson’s touchdown catch was his first this season and fifth of his career. • GSC running back Rahmann Lee became just the second player in 13 games (dating back to last season) to rush for over 100 yards against Fairmont State. • The Pioneers had seven offensive plays go for 20 yards or more, including four of its touchdowns. • Freshman linebacker Trevor Malnick turned in a good performance for FSU with nine tackles, including two for a loss.

Notable

• FSU is without a rushing touchdown after two games this season. Daniel Monroe, who was among the league leaders with 13 rushing touchdowns, has not scored this season. • The Falcons has forced just one turnover on the season (an interception against Clarion). • Fairmont State has just seven first half points so far this year and has not scored a point in the second quarter. • Nine different players have recorded catches for Fairmont State this year. • The Falcons are 16-2 when scoring 30 points or more under head coach Mike Lopez. The losses came last year against Glenville State and in 2008, a 41-38 loss at home to Seton Hill. FSU scored 49 points in a win over Bowie State last season. • FSU is 0-1 this year when it has more turnovers than its opponent. • The FSU defense has allowed only two individuals to rush for over 100 yards against them in the last 13 games dating back to last season (Tommy Addison, Shepherd, 114 yards in 2011 and Rahmann Lee, Glenville State, 146 yards in 2012).

Something Special

• Matt Wilmer put together a remarkable junior season as a return specialist for the Falcons. • Wilmer led the country in yards per punt return with 23.0. He was named Super Region 1 Special Teams Player of the Year and second team All-America by Don Hansen’s Football Gazette. He was a first team AllWVIAC selection and second team Daktronics All-Atlantic Region honoree. • In the opener against Clarion, Wilmer clearly had the attention of the Golden Eagles. Clarion’s five punts were angled away from Wilmer and went out of bounds. • The electricity showed up last week against Glenville State as Wilmer notched a 100yard kickoff return for a touchdown, the first of his career. • For his play, he was named WVIAC Special Teams Player of the Week. • Wilmer has accounted for four of Fairmont State’s 10 plays of 20 yards or more this season.

Receiving Saint

• FSU junior wide receiver Chris St. Hilaire, who had a strong sophomore season, is FSU’s top receiver so far this sason. • St. Hilaire had a game-high eight catches and 108 yards against the Golden Eagles. • The game against Clarion marked the third game of 100+ receiving yards for St. Hilaire in his career. • Six of his 12 catches this season have been for either a first down or a touchdown. • St. Hilaire now has 1,094 career receiving yards and is approaching the top 15 at FSU in career receiving yards (Khalid Dover is 15th with 1,466 yards).

Injury Report

• Fairmont State’s defense has been hit hard by several key injuries. • FSU suffered a big blow by losing Dewey McDonald to injury during a preseason scrimmage. McDonald, an All-America candidate and NFL prospect, will likely redshirt the season and return to the Falcon lineup in 2013. • During the game against Clarion, McDonald’s replacement at the free safety position ,Leatis Jones, was shaken up and his status for Bowie State is doubtful. • Leading up to the Clarion game, star middle linebacker Garrett Davis suffered an injury to his pinkie finger and is questionable for the game against Bowie State. Davis was a first team All-WVIAC selection last year and led the team with 101 total tackles a season ago.

“Stew”

• Fairmont State will be sporting “Stew” stickers on the helmet this year in honor of alum Bill Stewart who passed away earlier this year. • Stewart will also be inducted into the Fairmont State Athletic Association Hall of Fame later this fall. • Stewart played for head coach Deacon Duvall in the early 1970s and was captain of the 1974 WVIAC championship team. He also got his coaching start as an assistant at Fairmont State.

Preseason Notebook

• Fairmont State will open the season without a player who has started a game at quarterback at the NCAA Division II level. However, the Falcons will rely on Bobby Vega, a junior college transfer who threw for nearly 2,000 yards and 23 touchdowns last season at College of Dupage. • FSU lost its starting punter, place kicker, long snapper and holder from last year. • Fairmont State averaged 30 points per game last season -- the fifth highest season average in school history. • The Falcons return their leading rusher and scorer (Daniel Monroe), leading receiver (Chris St. Hilaire), leading tackler/TFL/sacks (Garrett Davis) and leading return man (Matt Wilmer). However, FSU lost several players “in the trenches.” The Falcons graduated two of its three starting defensive linemen, and two players on the offensive line. • Twelve different players recorded interceptions for the Falcons last season. Seven of those players return to the team this year. • Fairmont State has announced that it will join a new league, the Mountain East Conference, starting in 2013-14. The new twelve team league’s charter membership will include: Concord University (W.Va.), Fairmont State University (W.Va.), Glenville State College (W.Va.), Notre Dame College (Ohio), Shepherd University (W.Va.), The University of Charleston (W.Va.), The University of Virginia’s College at Wise (Va.), Urbana University (Ohio), West Liberty University (W.Va.), West Virginia State University (W.Va.), Wheeling Jesuit University (W.Va.), and West Virginia Wesleyan College (W.Va.). • Former defensive end standout Luke Black was picked up as a free agent by the Cincinnati Bengals and is competing for a spot on their roster.

2011 Season Review/Notes

• Fairmont State posted a 7-4 overall record and went 4-4 in the WVIAC. The Falcons’ seven wins were the most in over a decade. Two of FSU’s four losses came by seven points or less. • Fairmont State boasted two first team Academic All-America selections in Dewey McDonald and Frank Keenan. It was the first time in program history that FSU had two players earn first team honors in the same season. • Daniel Monroe became the second Falcon player to be named WVIAC “Freshman of the Year” after ranking among the league leaders in rushing and scoring. • Fairmont State’s average of 30 points per game was the fifth-highest average in school history. The Falcons scored over 30 points seven times last year and went 6-1 in those games. (The lone loss was a 36-30 setback vs. Glenville State in overtime.) • Eighteen players earned All-WVIAC honors including first team selections Chris Barfield (OL), Garrett Davis (LB) and Matt Wilmer (KR). • Fairmont State posted a 4-1 record away from Duvall-Rosier Field in 2011. The Falcons were also 3-0 against non-conference opponents. • The stingy Falcon defense gave up just 97.3 yards per game and only allowed one individual to rush for over 100 yards against them in a game (Tommy Addison, Shepherd, 114 yards). • Fairmont State had one of the stingiest red zone defenses in 2011 allowing teams points on 67 percent of their trips inside the 20. Opponents scored touchdowns on 51 percent of their red zone opportunities.

FSU Picked Fifth

• Fairmont State has been picked to finish fifth in the WVIAC in a vote of the league’s coaches. • Shepherd, which totaled six first-place nods and 76 points from the votes, was picked to win the league. • Defending WVIAC champion Concord, under the direction of WVIAC Coach of the Year Garin Justice, received the other three first place votes and 71 points, which was good enough for second place in the poll.

Glenville State Notebook By Duane Cochran for FightingFalcons.com Rare First For Wilmer Matt Wilmer has done some amazing things on the football field during his four-year tenure at Fairmont State. Thursday evening in the Falcons’ 41-21 West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference opening loss to Glenville State at Morris Stadium Wilmer added another highlight reel play to his already impressive resume when he tied an NCAA Division II record by returning a kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown. Wilmer, a 6-foot, 190-pound senior receiver from Keyser, actually fielded the football two yards deep in the end zone and brought it out, but NCAA statistical rules mandate that all returns are measured from the goal line. If Wilmer had been credited with the full yardage of the actual return he would have broken the 34-year-old FSU school record of Jerome Hoes, who returned a kickoff 101 yards for a TD against Bluefield State in 1978. At that time, however, Fairmont State was competing in the NAIA ranks. The kickoff return for a touchdown was the first of Wilmer’s career. He, however, has returned a pair of punts for scores, including a school-record 93-yard return against Clarion in 2011 and a 77-yard return against West Virginia State in 2010. “I’ve been waiting on that one,” said Wilmer with a laugh. “I was just talking about that last week. I said ‘Man, I need to get one.’ “In that situation we were down 17-0 and I was just trying to give us a spark. It was a big moment for me. Give the blockers credit. They opened the hole and I just ran.” Wilmer, a first-team All-WVIAC selection and the Don Hansen Football Gazette’s Super Region I Special Teams Player of the Year, led the nation last season in punt returns with an average of 23.0 yards per attempt. He also has six touchdown receptions to his credit during his career.

fightingfalcons.com

Fresh Faces Make Impact Two bright spots in Fairmont State’s setback against Glenville State Thursday evening were the play of true freshmen Trevor Malnick and Shad Alexander. Malnick, a 6-foot, 215-pound linebacker from Barrackville who starred at Fairmont Senior High School, was expected to play in a reserve role this season, but has been pressed into much more action early on due to an injury to standout junior mike linebacker Garrett Davis, who has missed the Falcons’ first two games of the season with a broken pinky finger. Malnick, a backup sam linebacker behind junior Ryan Watts, has seen a lot of action in the first two contests when Watts moves inside to help fill the void left by Davis. Against Glenville, Malnick led the Falcons in tackles with nine, including three solo stops and six assists. He had 1.5 tackles for seven yards in losses. “I’m just stepping in and trying to do what the coaches are asking me to do to try to help our team be successful,” said Malnick. “It’s been a real learning experience for me. The game at this level is totally different than high school. I’ve had guys ask me what the difference is between this and high school and it’s really hard to explain. The speed of the game is so much faster and the players are all bigger, stronger and faster. Until you experience it first-hand you can’t explain it. “This week I felt a lot more comfortable out there than I did the first week against Clarion. I watched more film this week than I did last week and that helped me. Also, all of the veteran guys we have here at linebacker have been a big help to me. They tell me what I’m doing wrong, what I’m doing right and they’re always encouraging me to get better.” Alexander, on the other hand, got his first significant playing time on offense for the Falcons and produced when the football was

in his hands. The 5-10, 180-pound tailback from Port St. Lucie, Fla. was a prep standout at Treasure Coast High School. Against Glenville, Alexander carried the football 10 times for a team-high 53 yards – an average of 5.3 yards per attempt. Alexander showed he could be a nice complement in the FSU backfield to sophomores Daniel Monroe and Collin Alford. “I’m just one part of our backfield and when I got the opportunity I just tried to do my best to produce,” said Alexander. “We struggled some in the first half, but in the second half we settled down and started executing better. We just have to stay humble and keep working hard and I think we’ll produce as an offense. “I’m new to the team and both Daniel and Collin have done a great job of helping me out with things I need to know like protections, routes and things like that. There’s definitely no bad vibes between any of us. We’re all just trying to do our best to help the team. It’s going to get better for us. I honestly believe that.” Looking Ahead Fairmont State (0-2) will look to avoid its first 0-3 start since 2009 when its visits Bowie State (Md.) University (2-0) Saturday, Sept. 15 for a 1 p.m. game at Bulldogs Stadium. Bowie State has opened the season with wins over Assumption (24-20) and Benedict (28-14). Fairmont State leads the all-time series between the two schools 2-0. The Falcons recorded a 49-20 victory over the Bulldogs last season in Fairmont. Bowie State’s offensive coordinator is Jason Woodman, who is a 2002 graduate of Fairmont State and played his high school ball at North Marion.

Bryan Wilson: A Whirlwind (published Sept 13) By Duane Cochran for FightingFalcons.com Fairmont State’s Bryan Wilson doesn’t have to worry about ever being mistaken for the Beach Boys co-founder of the same name but nowadays he can certainly identify with the band’s first number one hit in the United States “I Get Around.” Wilson, you see, has played a variety of roles for the Falcons since he first arrived on campus in the fall of 2009. His first three seasons, including one in which he was redshirted, Wilson served as a backup to Dewey McDonald at free safety. When Wilson hit the field for the first time in the fall of 2010 he earned a job on special teams for FSU in addition to seeing time as a backup to McDonald. In two years he recorded 26 total tackles, broke up five passes, intercepted one and recovered one fumble. This past spring Fairmont’s coaching staff asked Wilson to move to spur or outside linebacker behind senior Daniel Strosnider. Just as he was settling in there nicely in fall camp, McDonald suffered a broken arm which forced him to take a medical redshirt for the season and prompted the FSU coaches to ask Wilson to split time between both his new and old positions. Then, in the second half of the season opener against Clarion (Pa.) University McDonald’s replacement at free safety, Leatis Jones, suffered a knee injury forcing Wilson into the starting role in his old familiar spot. “It’s been a little bit of a whirlwind for me going from free to spur and back to free again,” said Wilson with a laugh. “The good thing is as a free safety you kind of have to know what the job of every position on the defense is because you’re responsible for a lot of the calls and getting people in the right spots. I was just starting to get a little comfortable with spur in fall camp when Dewey went down and the coaches asked me to take reps at both positions. Losing Dewey was huge for us. You just don’t replace a player of his caliber. “Then Leatis went down which was even worse for us. Losing two guys at that spot is tough. The good thing for me and our team is I at least had a few years of experience playing the free safety spot for us. I’m comfortable there and hopefully the guys on the team are comfortable with me being there.” They are. In fact McDonald, who was a two-time, first-team All-West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference selection for the Falcons at free safety, says the position is in good hands with Wilson.

“Wilson is a guy we all know we can count on,” said McDonald. “You never have to worry about him as a player. As my backup he pushed me to levels as a player that he doesn’t even know he pushed me to. He definitely made me work hard and perform at a high level because that’s how he operates every day. He prides himself on being a real student of the game. He’s always prepared and he’s always going to give you everything he’s got when he’s on the field.” FSU defensive coordinator Shahram Shafii agrees. “Bryan Wilson is a one-of-a-kind player,” said Shafii. “He’s been a role model for our team both on and off of the field ever since he got here. He comes into the film room every day with a notebook which is about the size of an encyclopedia and is full of notes. When we’re watching film and he makes a mistake and I correct him he’s writing it down so he can correct it the next time we’re on the field for practice. He comes in every day with different goals of what he wants to accomplish on that given day. “He’s just a very driven kid. It doesn’t matter whether he’s playing one snap or a thousand he brings the same positive, hardworking attitude with him every single day. He’s a great kid and a great player. We’re very fortunate to have him, especially now in the situation that we’re in.” Wilson, who is from Cary, N.C., is the second youngest of six boys in his family. He has one brother, Andrew, who plays minor league baseball in the Atlanta Braves organization and another who is in the military special forces. “I was the brother who got picked on all of the time,” he said jokingly. “I wasn’t the baby so I couldn’t get away with anything. I think growing up with that many boys made me a little tougher. In fact, I know it did and it definitely helped to prepare me for college football.” His father Berk is a minister and his mother Barbara works for an insurance company with former Falcon wide receiver Scott Thistle, who helped get Wilson to Fairmont State. “I had never even heard of Fairmont State until Scott Thistle told me about it,” he said. “I owe him a lot. He trained me from my sophomore year until I was a freshman here and I still train with him until this day when I go back home. He really helped me develop in all areas, especially running with the proper form. I ran about a 4.7 40-yard dash when

I was a sophomore and thanks to Scott I was down to a legitimate 4.5 by the time I was a senior. “Scott made a couple of calls for me. We sent a tape up here and they offered me a scholarship. Having five brothers my parents said I had to pay my own way for school so I jumped at the opportunity and it’s been a good fit for me being here.” Wilson credits his parents for raising him with good, solid values and ethics. He, along with fellow FSU football players Daniel Strosnider and Matt Wilmer and former Falcon basketball player Jamal Womble, are the leaders of a bible study group on campus. “Above all God is first and foremost in my life. Then parents, family and football,” said Wilson. “Spirituality always been a very big part of my life and I’m thankful for that. Believe me I’ve had plenty of opportunities to throw things away and do my own thing, but I think thanks to my parents, God and the way I was raised I’ve been able to make some wise decisions and choices. “I really enjoy doing what I do with Stro, Wilmer and Jamal. I always have them to lean on. When I came up here I knew no one. Jamal was one of the first people I met and he always encouraged me and was there for me to talk to. Believe me that first year I talked to him a lot about a lot of things. He, and my parents, really helped me make the adjustment to being on my own and being here away from home my freshman year.” In addition to football, Wilson is also a standout in the classroom. He is majoring in sports management and is an academic achievement award winner on the football team. He also works part time at the school’s Falcon Center and likes to organize footballwatching get togethers and game nights be it electronic or board games with his teammates. “I’ve always enjoyed doing that and I really try to include the freshmen on our team because I remember what it was like being a freshman and adjusting to college life,” he said. “I’ve really never enjoyed going out. I just try to give people other options or alternatives and let them know there’s other things to do and other ways to have fun. “I love watching games and I like playing games like NCAA Football or simple board games. In fact, (FSU linebacker) Ryan Watts and I have really been getting into board games lately. We have some good battles.” Whatever the game you can expect Bryan Wilson to be on top of it.

FAIRMONT, W.Va. -- Fairmont State exploded for 28 points in the second quarter to lead it to a 49-20 victory over Bowie State on Thursday night at Duvall-Rosier Field. The victory improved the Falcons record to 5-1, which is the best start for the Falcons since 1981. The loss drops Bowie State to 3-3 on the year.

Game 1 | Thursday, Aug. 30, 2012 | Clarion, Pa. Clarion 7, Fairmont State 0

CLARION, Pa. -- Clarion’s Ben Fiscus connected with Mark Nicholas on a 27yard touchdown pass in the third quarter and the Golden Eagle defense pitched a shutout to defeat Fairmont State, 7-0, in the season-opener at Memorial Stadium. Fiscus had an efficient night going 14-of-21 for 136 yards and a touchdown passing and added 77 yards on the ground to pace the Golden Eagle offense. Bobby Thomas added 80 yards on the ground for Clarion. Fairmont State quarterback Bobby Vega had a solid first outing in a Falcon uniform connecting on 27-of-47 passes for 321 yards. He was intercepted twice. His favorite targets were Chris St. Hilaire who had eight catches for 108 yards and C.J. Goodwin who added six grabs for 55 yards. Clarion’s defense was led by Andrew Paronish who had six tackles, a fumble recovery, and a fourth quarter interception he returned for 27 yards. Fairmont State’s defense was paced by Scott Davidson who had eight total tackles and Daniel Strosnider who had four tackles and interception. The Falcons held the edge in total offense, 355-291, but were penalized 11 times for 120 yards in the game. Clarion was flagged seven times for 95 yards. The Golden Eagles stifled the Fairmont State running game holding the Falcons to just 34 yards on 30 carries in the game. Neither team made it into the red zone until the third quarter when FSU got to the Clarion 17 on its initial drive of the half. However, a penalty and a sack stalled the drive and the Falcons had to settle for a punt. The Golden Eagles countered on the ensuing drive marching 84 yards down for the score as Fiscus found Nicholas in tight coverage on a 27-yard score. Clarion looked to put the game away late in the fourth quarter as it lined up for a field goal, but Scott Davidson came off the edge and blocked the attempt to give FSU one last chance on offense. The Falcons worked the way down to the Clarion 8-yard line, but were moved back on a holding play to the 15. Facing third-and-goal, Vega’s pass to St. Hilaire was low and incomplete. With just 22 seconds left, Vega heaved an attempt in the back of the end zone where the pass was batted down by Clarion’s Jason Peterson to preserve the victory for the Golden Eagles. Score

• Quarterback Bobby Vega’s 321 yards passing vs. Clarion were the most by a quarterback in Lopez’s tenure as head coach. In fact, the 321 yards passing were the most by a Falcon quarterback since Oct. 27, 2001, when Bryan Harman threw for 354 yards against Concord. • Fairmont State was shutout for just the second time under offensive coordinator Bryan Fisher last week against Clarion. The last time the Falcons were held scoreless under Fisher was a 24-0 loss to UNC Pembroke in 2010. • FSU’s 7-0 loss to Clarion marked the first time that Fairmont State has lost when holding a team to under nine points under head coach Mike Lopez. • Clarion snapped a two-game losing streak to Fairmont State with its win over the Falcons. • For the third-straight year, the team with the most total offense lost the game. • The Fairmont State defense held Clarion to just 291 yards and did so with just one tackle for a loss of yards and no sacks. • Daniel Strosnider’s interception was the second of his career. The first interception of his career came two seasons ago against Glenville State. • Fairmont State’s Johnny Dearstine handled the kicking duties for the Falcons against Clarion. His kickoff went to the end zone where it was returned, and his 42-yard field goal attempt had plenty of distance but missed wide right.

Game 2 | Thursday, Sept. 6, 2012 | Glenville, W.Va. Glenville State 41, Fairmont State 21

GLENVILLE, W.Va. -- Glenville State scored 34 first half points which proved to be more than enough in a 41-21 win over Fairmont State on Thursday night at Morris Stadium. The Pioneers racked up over 500 yards of total offense with 273 yards passing and another 254 on the ground. Darold Hughes completed 13-of-20 passes for 258 yards and three touchdowns. Robert Jiles hauled in five passes for 142 yards, including touchdown receptions of 59 and 41 yards. Glenville State’s defense recorded four sacks and seven tackles for a loss in limiting Fairmont State to 196 yards of total offense. Shad Alexander led the way on the ground with 10 carries for 53 yards. Bobby Vega was 13-of-27 for 87 yards and two touchdown passes. Matt Wilmer provided a spark for the Falcons with a 100-yard kickoff return at the end of the first quarter for FSU. It was the first kickoff return for a touchdown in his career. Freshman linebacker Trevor Malnick led the Falcons defensively with six total tackles, including two for a loss. The Pioneers raced out to a quick 17-0 lead in the first quarter lead before the Falcons got on the board with Wilmer’s 100-yard kick return for a touchdown as the quarter expired. Wilmer took the kick two yards deep in the end zone and went to his left and darted through traffic for the score. The Falcons could not capitalize on the momentum, though, as the Pioneers responded with a five-yard TD run from Quin Thornton. GSC added a field goal and a touchdown late in the quarter to give the Pioneers the big 34-7 cushion at the break. Glenville State got its only points of the second half on a 59-yard touchdown reception by Jiles from Hughes. On the play, the pass was deflected by two FSU defenders before finally being hauled in by Jiles to extend GSC’s lead to 41-7. Vega found Sampson in the back of the end zone on a short five-yard pass to start the fourth quarter to make it 41-14, and Vega later found Chris St. Hilaire for a seven-yard TD reception for the final points of the game and the 41-21 final.

Fairmont State Fighting Falcons


Bobby Vega: Ready For The Chance (published Aug. 20) By Duane Cochran for FightingFalcons.com When Bobby Vega wrapped up his junior college football career at the College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn, Ill., all he wanted was the opportunity to go to a four-year school and compete for a starting job. Vega, a 6-2, 210 junior quarterback, got his wish when Fairmont State University came calling. The Falcons already had two-year starter Logan Moore in the fold when Vega enrolled at FSU in January, but Fairmont’s coaching staff was adamant about adding quality depth to a crucial position on their roster. Vega was coming off his sophomore and final season at the College of DuPage where he completed 157 of 264 passes (59.4 percent) for 1,987 yards and 23 touchdowns. He was intercepted 10 times. “You go back to our season last year when Logan got hurt against Bowie State here, it changed the whole course of our season,” said FSU head coach Mike Lopez. “I promised the staff that I’d never let that happen again.” Vega wasted little time turning heads in spring drills with his live arm and leadership qualities. Moore and Vega engaged in a friendly, but competitive battle for the top spot in FSU’s offense which culminated in the annual FSU Maroon-White Spring Game.

In that contest Vega connected on 12-of-24 passes for 196 yards and one TD. The stage appeared to be set for a good battle for the starting job between the two in August, but Moore opted to enroll at West Virginia University, leaving the job to Vega. Despite losing Moore, the Falcons still solved their issue with depth at the position adding Tyler Pate from Hurricane, W.Va., and Brandon Ashenfelter from Martinsburg, W.Va. “First and foremost I think I’ve been blessed with the opportunity that I’ve been given here at Fairmont State,” said Vega. “Unfortunately Logan left here and I have nothing but best wishes for him. He was definitely a big part of this program and this offense. I believe we both could have been used in the right way here to help this team. “I came here just wanting to compete for a job. I didn’t ask for anything but a chance and I got that chance and now it’s up to me to make the most of it. I’m in the so-called driver’s seat to run this offense and it’s up to me to get the job done.” The good news for Vega, who starred in high school in Florida at Miami’s Felix Varela Senior High, is that he’ll be surrounded this fall by a plethora of returning starters including WVIAC Offensive Freshman of the Year running back Daniel Monroe, receivers Chris

St. Hilaire, Mark Sampson and Matt Wilmer, tight end Sean Marion and first-team allleague tackle Chris Barfield to name a few. “I feel like we’re going to be solid on offense,” said Vega. “We have some depth now on the offensive line. The coaches recruited very well in that area. I also think we have great wide receivers in St. Hilaire, Wilmer, Sampson and some young guys who are talented. Then we have Monroe, who before he got hurt last year was having a great season. “We have talent. It just has to all come together. Right now we really need to work on building team chemistry. That’s a big part of success.” Vega returned to Fairmont from Miami in mid-summer and began preparing himself to run the offense. “As soon as I got back I called some of the guys who were here to get together and throw some to keep my arm loose and in shape,” he said. “I also wanted to work on timing with them. I also watched film a lot. I didn’t have a lot on myself. I watched the spring game quite a few times and I’ve tried to correct my mistakes. I’m a player who believes you can always learn and you can always improve. I feel like I’ve put my work in. Now let’s see if it pays off.” Lopez is one individual who believes it will. “Bobby’s a great kid who has been very mature from day one here,” said Lopez. “Bobby is our guy. I’m comfortable saying that. He has a great work ethic and very good leadership skills. He’s cool and calm and he possesses a big arm and good feet. I think he’s a good fit for our offense and I’ll say this – I sleep very well at night knowing he’s going to be the guy running our offense.”

Scott Davidson: Finding The Phantom (published Aug. 23) By Duane Cochran for FightingFalcons.com Like an onion, there’s a lot of layers to Fairmont State University senior football player Scott Davidson. There’s Scott Davidson the double major in communications and graphic technology who is a member of the Dean’s List. There’s Scott Davidson the two-month intern at Enterprise Rent-A-Car in Fairmont who has been No. 1 in home city sales in each of the two months he’s been there. There’s Scott Davidson the student of the game, master technician and a leader of the FSU secondary from his cornerback position. And there’s Scott Davidson the “Phantom,” a self-proclaimed moniker he gave himself in high school to best describe his on-field persona. “The guy is sneaky good,” said FSU receiver Chris St. Hilaire. “He’s very good at disguising what he’s going to do. You may think he’s going to do one thing and he’ll do the complete opposite. He’s also great at reading receivers and routes. He’ll recognize if a receiver is going to break down and cut off the route or if he’s going to make a move and go deep. “He’s a very intelligent player who has good feet and his technique is the best. If I’m running an out he’s right on my hip. If I run a comeback he’s right behind me. If I go deep he’s still right on my hip. The guy is always where he’s supposed to be. I think he’s one of the best corners in our league.” Since he first arrived on Fairmont State’s campus three years ago Davidson, who did not redshirt out of Columbus, Ohio’s Eastmoor Academy, has taken a very mature and business-like approach to the way he does pretty much everything in his life. “My dad wasn’t in my life growing up,” he said. “My mother, Deborah, raised my sister Donna and I. She’s the strongest person I know. She can handle pretty much anything. I think I’ve seen her cry maybe once in my life. I draw a lot of my strength as a person from her. I respect her so much and know I can always turn to her if I need anything. “I think because of my situation I had to mature a lot faster than maybe most males do. The closest thing I had to a father figure growing up was one of my high school coaches, James Miranda, who is a great guy that I still talk to from time to time. He had a real positive influence on me.” Once he was in Fairmont’s camp in the fall of 2009, it didn’t take the Falcon coaches long to recognize Davidson’s potential.

fightingfalcons.com

“The one thing I know for certain about Scotty Davidson is from the first day he arrived here at Fairmont he’s always separated himself both on and off the field as a leader and as a mature adult,” said FSU defensive coordinator Shahram Shafii. “He’s always aspired to be great. Athletically there’s times he may not have the same skill set as people who line up beside him or across from him, but technique-wise he’s phenomenal. He’s one of the hardest workers we have. “You tell me he had success working at Enterprise, well, it wouldn’t surprise me at the end of the day if he owned Enterprise,” Shafii continued. “That’s the type of kid he is. I love him. He’s great at teaching and working with our young guys and having him on the field makes me, as a coach, a lot more comfortable.” Davidson heads into his senior season with 60 total tackles, 43 of which are solo stops. He also has three career interceptions and eight pass breakups. “I can hardly believe it’s my senior season already,” said Davidson. “I’m looking for good things from both myself and our team this year.

“I’ve had a great three years here and am looking forward to a fourth. I’m going to miss a lot of things about here – my teammates and the coaching staff. I’ve learned so much. The coaches have been great. They make you laugh and they make you cry, but at the end of the day they teach you something about football and life and I’ve tried to learn and apply as much of what I’ve been taught as possible.” And as for his “Phantom” persona? “In life you have to have a couple of different personas,” said Davidson with a laugh. “You can’t just be you all of the time. Off the field I’m definitely Scott Davidson. I’m a fun guy who is easy to get along with. On the field I’m more business-like. When you play this game you’ve got to have a certain confidence or swagger. Hence the phantom. “At first in high school the guys used to call me Master Lock. That was nice but I couldn’t get anywhere with that. I tried to play it in my head and it just went no where. We had this thing in high school called super hero day and I told everyone I was going to come as the Phantom. They were like ‘What, no way.’ I dressed up in all black tights with black shoes, a cape and a mask and called myself the Phantom. From that point on it stuck and I ran with it. I tried to do different things on the field which would make me seem like a phantom. I remember quarterbacks telling me a lot that it seemed like I came out of no where. I liked that.” Davidson will graduate in May with two degrees from FSU. In the future he says he wouldn’t mind parlaying his internship at Enterprise into a full-time position. “Hopefully after I graduate and pass my skills and grills test with Enterprise they’ll hire me as a full-time management assistant,” said Davidson. “After that I can pretty much go wherever there’s an opening. “I kind of have a knack for public relations, marketing, sales and things like that. In sales you have to have a strategy. It’s just like football. Every game isn’t the same and every customer isn’t the same. I like it there (at Enterprise) because it’s not a scam. Everything is real, down to earth and legit. You explain everything up front and you don’t have to worry about people coming back and saying I didn’t know this or that. “I’m ready for life and ready to get things started. I’ve pretty much had my life planned out since I was about 15. I know where I want to be and what steps I have to take to get there.”
