In 2012, Wagner Celebrated the 25-Year Anniversary of “The Unforgettable Season” On September 15, 2012, the 1987 Seahawks were honored on the 25th anniversary of their Division III National Championship in a ceremony on a field that had been dedicated just minutes before as Hameline Field at Wagner College Stadium It’s a story that’s been told many times. It’s the story of a tiny college in New York City that

defied the odds... and won it all. It’s the story of the 1987 Wagner College Seahawks football team. A group of tough, wide-eyed young men, guided by an energetic, enthusiastic, and driven seventhyear head coach a 36-year old man named Walt Hameline who, a quarter century later, still plies his same trade; nurturing, prodding, molding, disciplining and, above all, leading young men, The greatest day in the long and illustrious gridiron history of Wagner College came on a sunny December 12,1987 in Phenix,Alabama, as the Seahawks captured the 1987 NCAA Division III National Championship with 19-3 victory over the University of Dayton in the Amos Alonzo Stagg Bowl. Winners of seven straight and 12 of 13 heading into the championship, Wagner rose to the challenge, jumping out to a 19-0 first-half lead.The Green & White never looked back in cruising to the College’s first and only national championship in any sport. Following the season, their story grew as six players were named All-American, including three first-teamers. Their story was even splashed across a two-page spread in Sports Illustrated. Over these last 25 years, the Seahawks’ achievement has been well-told. It will be told again and again.

head coach jason houghtaling

jason houghtaling head coach third season

Former Wagner associate head coach/offensive coordinator Jason Houghtaling (hO - Tail- Ling), was elevated to head football coach on November 25, 2014 and enter his third season at the helm of the Seahawk program in 2017, after guiding the Green & White to 6-5 record and a 4-2 Northeast Conference (NEC) mark a year ago. Houghtaling took over for Walt Hameline, who served in the dual role as Seahawk athletic director and head football coach for 34 years, before announcing that he is stepping down from his role as head coach. Hameline will remain as Wagner’s athletic director. Prior to his appointment as head coach, Houghtaling spent seven seasons on the Wagner sidelines, serving as offensive coordinator during Wagner’s 2012 and 2014 Northeast Conference (NEC) title runs, while in-between, spending the 2013 season as offensive coordinator at Cornell In his last three seasons as Wagner’s offensive coordinator, the Seahawks have amassed a 16-6 NEC record with league titles in two of the last three seasons. The Green & White staged a dramatic 23-20 come-from-behind victory at Bryant, marching 65 yards in the waning minutes for the game-winning touchdown that gave the Seahawks a 7-4 record, a 5-1 NEC mark, and a share of the 2014 NEC title. The 2014 Seahawk offense followed a similar formula to the 2012 Seahawks, finishing the regular season ranked No. 4 nationally in time of possession (33:02), while not committing a single turnover in the last three games of the season. When he returned to Grymes Hill in the capacity of associate

head coach jason houghtaling head coach/offensive coordinator in January, 2014, this marked Houghtaling’s third stint at Wagner. Known as ‘Hoss’ to his players and fellow coaches, Houghtaling was a Seahawk assistant coach from 2006-2009, before becoming head coach at Hudson Valley Community College in 2010. Following one season as head coach of the Vikings, he returned to Wagner as offensive coordinator in 2011, where he spent two seasons, including the 2012 NEC Championship campaign. “Jason has a sharp football mind and he is an excellent teacher and leader of young men,” said Wagner College President Richard Guarasci. “He has prepared himself carefully to be a head coach of a Division I program. He completed his Masters degree in education from Wagner where he learned how to teach students with different and unique skills and personalities. I am delighted that he will lead Wagner’s football program and continue his partnership with Walt Hamline as they take Wagner into the next generation of athletic and academic success.” During Wagner’s 9-4 NEC Championship season of 2012, that saw the Seahawks become the first team in NEC history to win an NCAA FCS Playoff game and rank in the Top 25 of both final national polls, Houghtaling tutored the Seahawks’ record-setting quarterback, Nick Doscher, as he evolved into one of the all-time great quarterbacks to ever compete at Wagner and in the NEC. Doscher operated Houghtaling’s offensive system with precision, finishing his career ranked No. 1 in Seahawk history, and No. 2 in NEC history, with 8,404 yards of total offense. His 6,100 passing yards are also No. 1 on the Wagner all-time list and No. 9 on the all-time NEC list. As a senior in 2012, Doscher fashioned a passer rating of 133.9, with 13 touchdown passes and just one interception, ending his career with a remarkable 221 consecutive pass attempts without an interception. Led by Doscher, and star running back Dominique Williams, who is now a member of the NFL’s Minnesota Vikings’ practice squad, the 2012 Seahawks were one of the nation’s most balanced units, ranking No. 1 nationally with the fewest turnovers (6) in all of FCS football.

head coach jason houghtaling “I am thrilled that Jason Houghtaling will take over as Wagner head coach and I have full confidence that he will continue to keep the Seahawks on the path to success for years to come,” said Hameline. “His work ethic, passion, football knowledge, recruiting contacts, and familiarity with Wagner College are all major assets that will pay huge dividends for our program. In Hoss, we have an individual who has the respect of everyone that he comes into contact with, and is highly-regarded by high school coaches both within our region, and on a national scale.” During the 2013 season as offensive coordinator at Cornell, Houghtaling coached quarterback Jeff Mathews, who led the Ivy League in attempts, completions and passing yards, before signing a free agent contract with the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons. Following the 2013 season, Mathews, who is currently a member of the practice squad of the Indianapolis Colts, was named to the College Sports Journal FCS All-America Team and received the additional honor of participating in the East–West Shrine Game, serving as captain of the East squad. During his first season as a collegiate offensive coordinator (2011), Houghtaling directed the talented Williams to impressive numbers. Williams ranked among the national leaders by rushing for 121.6 yards per game and 14 total touchdowns, while posting eight 100-yard games in 11 contests. The following season, Williams was a 2012 College Sports Journal All-American, in addition to earning First-Team All-NEC honors. “Wagner is a special place for both my family and I, so it’s truly an honor to be selected to continue to build this program,” said Houghtaling. “I thank Coach Hameline and Wagner College President Dr. Guarasci for entrusting me with this position and can’t wait to lead this program, coach our current players, and attract even more elite student-athletes in the coming years.” When he first arrived at Wagner in 2006, Houghtaling served as running backs coach, before heading the Seahawk offensive lines from 2007-2009. With an emphasis on New York State and Florida, Houghtaling has been the lead recruiter for a host of student-athletes who have gone on to enjoy outstanding careers on Grymes Hill. The list of top Wagner student-athletes that Houghtaling has recruited include New Jerseyan Dominique Williams, New York State natives Quintin Anderson, Tyrone Collins, Chazz Legette, Stefan Gage, Patrick Gibbons, and Sidiq Soulemana, as well as Floridians Keith Hernandez, Frantz Placide and Otis Wright. In 2010, his one season as head coach at Troy, NY-

head coach jason houghtaling based Hudson Valley, he tutored two All-Conference performers. Houghtaling began his collegiate coaching career at prep powerhouse Milford Academy in Berlin, NY, where he helped lead the Falcons to a 20-3 mark as defensive coordinator, while also serving as defensive line and strength and conditioning coach. A 2004 graduate of the University of Binghamton with a degree in History, Houghtaling earned a Masters in Education from Wagner in 2009. He originally attended Lafayette, where he was a defensive lineman for the Leopards, before injuries cut short his playing career and he transferred to Binghamton. A native of Windsor, NY, Houghtaling got his start in coaching at his high school alma mater, Windsor Central High School, where he spent two seasons working with the Black Knights’ offensive line and linebackers under the head coach he played for, Dan Hodack. Houghtaling and his wife Mary are the proud parents of two daughters, Abbie and Emma.

head coach jason houghtaling What They’re Saying About Jason Houghtaling Dave Archer, Head Coach – Cornell University “Jason Houghtaling is not only an incredibly knowledgeable football coach but he does a great job relating to student-athletes from all over – all over the country, from all different backgrounds. He does a great job of being able to get them to work together, as proven by his offensive lines, and his offenses, and I’m excited to see him on larger scale, with a full team, as a head coach.” Keith Carter, Offensive Line Coach - San Jose State University, Former Quality Control Coach - 2014 Super Bowl Champion Seattle Seahawks, Former Wagner College Assistant Coach “He’s tenacious, he’s a go-getter, and he’s somebody who, as a colleague and working with him, he’s someone I was constantly trying to keep up with. He’s the type of guy who just pushes you. As a consequence, iron sharpens iron, and he made me better just trying to keep up with him. I’m just really excited for him honestly. He’s going to do a great job, he’s really organized, with a really good ability to see the big picture, make a plan and adjust when you have to, and see it through in the right way. He’s just a balanced, humble person and is about as blue collar and as tough as they come and I think it’s a really good fit.” Tom Masella, Defensive Coordinator – UMass, Former Wagner College Associate Head Coach, Former Head Coach – Boston University, Fairfield, Central Connecticut, Fordham, and a former Seahawk standout and 1981 Wagner College graduate “I’m really happy for Hoss. If you could pick a guy to replace Walt Hameline, Jason Houghtaling is the guy you’d pick. He’s very determined, knowledgeable, hard-working, and he really loves Wagner, has a genuine passion for the school and the community. That’s his school now. I think it’s a great fit and, like I said, I couldn’t be happier for him and for the Wagner football program.” Bill Chaplick, Head Coach – Milford Academy “He came to me as a position coach and halfway through his first year with me I made him our defensive coordinator and we ended up going 11-1 and he had a chance to coach Antonio Dixon, who went to the University of Miami, and the NFL (Redskins, Eagles, Colts). And he coached Terrance Knighton, who’s now with the Denver Broncos, the guy they call ‘Pot Roast’. Hoss was totally loyal to the sport of football and totally loyal to me as a head coach, and that’s why I gave him his promotion. We went 9-2 his second year and then he told me he wanted to do this the rest of his life. So, I hooked him up with Coach Hameline, I put my word on Hoss, and he’s done a great job, obviously, and I wish him and Coach Hameline the best.” Dan Hodack, Former Head Coach - Windsor Central High School (NY) “I remember, as a freshman, Jason was a big, bruising fullback/linebacker but we needed help on the offensive line. I figured we could probably find another fullback but we can’t find another person to play center and anchor our line for three years. He controlled the whole offensive line from that point forward and made all the defensive calls as our middle linebacker on three championship teams. His leadership skills were evident early.” Gary Vail, Former Athletic Director, Football, Basketball, Baseball Coach- Windsor Central High School (NY) “I was no longer coaching football when Jason came through but I coached him in basketball and baseball and he was really an outstanding athlete. He was incredibly coachable and extremely team-oriented and a young man who’s always pretty much known what he wanted to do which is to be a coach. He understands the work ethic that he needs and he also understands having a first-class attitude about things, knowing how deal with all the different people that he has to. He’s done very well with each of his opportunities and I know he’ll do a great job as Wagner’s head coach.”

tony brinson assistant coach:

defensive coordinator Alma Mater: Rhode Island, 1995 Experience: Seventh Year Tony Brinson, who enters his 24th season as a collegiate football coach in 2017 and his seventh season at Wagner, will again serve as defensive coordinator for the Seahawks in 2017. During his six seasons on Grymes Hill, the veteran North Jersey native has worn many hats, having served in the roles of recruiting coordinator, in addition to coaching the Seahawks’ special teams, defensive line and linebackers. A member of the coaching staffs that led Wagner to the 2012 and 2014 (regular season) NEC Championship squads, in his time at Wagner he has produced two team MVPs, three Defensive MVP’s, seven All-Northeast Conference players and four NFL free agents. There are two current former pupils of Brinson who are now currently on NFL rosters in New York Jet veteran, Julian Stanford, who has also played for the Jacksonville Jaguars and Detroit Lions, as well as Oakland Raiders rookie linebacker, Najee Harris. Under Brinson’s guidance, the 2016 Seahawks produced three All-Northeast Conference (NEC) performers as defensive end Jordan Baskerville and strong safety Tim Hayes earned First-Team All-League honors while inside linebacker Quintin Hampton was named to the All-NEC Second Team. This trio helped Wagner rank No.1 in in the NEC in Red Zone Defense, No. 3 in both Total Defense (327.8 yard avg.) and Rushing Defense (99.3 yard average). Thanks in large measure to the play of the Wagner defense, the 2016 Seahawks compiled a 6-5 record and a 4-2 league mark which was good for third place. Under Brinson’s guidance, the 2016 Seahawks produced three All-NEC performers as defensive end Jordan Baskerville and strong safety Tim Hayes earned First-Team All-League honors while inside linebacker Quintin Hampton was named to the All-NEC Second Team. His more than two-decade career has taken him up and down the eastern seaboard where he has developed a host of deep and lasting recruiting relationships and contacts. “Tony Brinson is a really good football coach and he has a lot of responsibilities, both on and off the field and I’m excited to have him lead our defense” said head coach Jason Houghtaling. “He’s also a terrific recruiter and is very, very organized. Tony is a veteran guy, carries himself the right way, and does what you expect of a top football coach.” Following the 2011 season, the aforementioned Stanford signed a free agent deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars after earning first-team All-NEC accolades. The 6-2, 225-pound Stanford earned a spot on the team’s final roster, went on to make an early impact on special teams which led to his starting six of Jacksonville’s 16 games. One of 19 players to play in all 16 games for the Jaguars, Stanford finished his rookie campaign with 23 total tackles, including 18 solo stops. In making the Jaguars’ roster, Stanford became the first Seahawk to appear on an active NFL regular season roster since Wagner Hall of Fame member Rich Kotite (1967-1972). Stanford then signed a free agent contract with the Detroit Lions in 2013. Two of Stanford’s teammates, also tutored by Brinson, inked NFL free agent deals following the 2011 season in safety Jeremiah Brown and DE Quintin Anderson and were in training camps with the Jaguars and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, respectively, before becoming a member of the Jets in 2015. In 2014, the Seahawk defensive unit, spearheaded by its fine linebacker play, led the NEC in a host of categories while also ranking in the NCAA Top 10 in three major categories – Rushing Defense, No. 2 (83.1), Total Defense, No. 6 (281.3) and Scoring Defense, No. 10 (18.0). Thanks in large part to the relentless brand of defense displayed by the Green & White defense, the 2014 Seahawks went 7-4 overall and 5-1 in league, sharing the NEC title with Sacred Heart. This marked Wagner’s second NEC title in the last three years as the Seahawks won the 2012 championship en route to an appearance in the Division I NCAA Playoffs. Brinson helped develop senior Max Wassel into a First-Team All-NEC performer whose 81 tackles, a 7.5 average per game, ranked No. 6 in the NEC. In addition, his 21 tackles for loss (for minus 61 yards) ranked No. 2 in the NEC while his 52 solo tackles ranked No. 3 in the league. In 2013, Brinson helped develop outside linebacker Trevor Loveland, the only student-athlete to hail from a NEC program among the 43 members of the Athletics Directors Association (FCS ADA) Academic All-Star Team. The 6-3, 230-pound Loveland, who returns to the 2014 team as a fifth-year senior, led the 2013 team with 69 tackles, while registering a team-best 12.0 tackles for loss for minus 33 yards. He also recorded three sacks for minus 12 yards and was credited with two forced fumbles, one pass breakup and one blocked kick. In Wagner’s historic run to the 2012 NEC title and FCS Playoffs, senior linebacker C.O. Prime recorded a team-best 98 tackles and earned second-team All-NEC honors. In April, 2013, the 6-1, 255-pound Prime became the fourth Seahawk in Brinson’s tenure to sign an NFL free agent contract when he inked a deal with the Indianapolis Colts. Also In 2012, Wagner’s starting outside linebacker tandem of seniors Theodore Clohessy and Mike Milone turned in stellar campaigns despite not possession the physical stature of most top FCS linebackers. . Clohessy, who was named Defensive MVP at the postseason banquet, made play after play despite being relatively undersized at 5-10, 210. Fifth on team in tackles with 77, including 35 solo, Clohessy forced a team-high six fumbles. He was also credited with nine tackles for loss for minus 43 yards, three sacks for minus 23 yards, while adding two fumble recoveries and one pass breakup. When teams tried to pick on the 5-10, 190-pound Milone on the other side, they were also made to pay. Milone was sixth with 63 stops (26 solo). Key understudies at outside linebacker, Trevor Loveland and Greg Burton, contributed 17 and 12 tackles, respectively. Much of the groundwork that led to the 2012 NEC title was laid in 2011 under Brinson’s direction as defensive coordinator. That season, Wagner ranked No. 1 in the NEC in three different categories: rushing defense (141.1 yards per game), red zone defense (71.8%) and takeaways (29). Brinson arrived on Grymes Hill in 2011 after serving three years as an assistant at Columbia University. Brinson joined the Columbia staff in April 2008 and was the Lions’ tight end coach throughout his tenure there. Brinson covers Wagner’s recruiting efforts throughout Northern New Jersey.

rob calabrese assistant coach:

offensive coordinator Alma Mater: Central Florida, 2012 Experience: Second Year

After serving as running backs coach/assistant special teams coordinator for the Seahawks in 2016, Rob Calabrese has taken over the reigns as offensive coordinator, having replaced Rich Scangarello who is now the quarterbacks coach for the NFL’s San Francisco 49ers. Calabrese, who accepted a position on the Temple University staff last winter before returning to Grymes Hill as offensive coordinator, enters his second season on the Seahawk staff. A former quarterback at the University of Central Florida (UCF) where he passed for more than 1,200 yards and 12 touchdowns while rushing for more than 250 yards, Calabrese arrived at Wagner in 2016 following a two-year stint at UCF, where he served as a graduate assistant. “Rob’s a football guy,” said Houghtaling. “When Rob came on board last year, I knew Rich (Scangarello) would probably be moving on at some point. So, Rich kind of groomed Rob for that position. He was a starting college quarterback, knows the game inside and out, and can coach the offense. “Some of Rob’s strengths are just the strengths of a great leader,” Houghtaling added. “He’s passionate about football, he’s loyal, he’s competitive, and he’s organized. I’m really excited about Rob.” Prior to coming on board at Wagner in 2016, Calabrese served a two-year stint at UCF where he served as a graduate assistant. At UCF, Calabrese worked extensively with the Knights’ quarterbacks and wide receivers, in addition to being responsibe for all defensive film input and weekly opponent scouting reports.

about the northeast conference #NECPride is about having pride in your team, your school and the will to succeed both on and off the field. #NECPride is about achievement, ambition, perseverance, community, passion, respect, determination, unity and teamwork. Northeast Conference History The 2017-18 academic year marks the 37th for the Northeast Conference (NEC) as an NCAA Division I athletic entity. In that time, the NEC mission has remained remarkably consistent: to provide opportunities for student-athletes to achieve their fullest potential in the classroom, in athletic competition and in the community. Focusing on the areas of student-athlete achievement, academic excellence, integrity, sportsmanship, equity and diversity, innovation, community partnership and national engagement, the NEC has made significant strides in recent years under the leadership of Commissioner Noreen Morris. And with #NECPride serving as the unifying theme, the 2017-18 academic year presents new opportunities for the NEC to stand out among its peers, while fostering a sense of pride amongst its student-athletes, coaches, administrators and fans. When the Northeast Conference (NEC) was first established as the ECAC-Metro Conference back in 1981, the league’s founders had one goal in mind: to create a competitive NCAA Division I men’s basketball conference for unaffiliated schools on the Eastern seaboard. A single-sport entity at its inception, the NEC has grown far beyond expectations over the past three plus decades, having transformed itself into a 10-member, 22-sport conference. The remarkable success story of the Conference began to unfold in 1985, when the league began sponsoring additional sports. Three years later, a change of name was in order and the Northeast Conference as we know it today was born. With membership and sport sponsorship continuing to grow over the years, the NEC now enjoys qualification or play-in access to 14 different NCAA Championships (baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, football, men’s and women’s golf, men’s and women’s lacrosse, men’s and women’s soccer, softball, men’s and women’s tennis and women’s volleyball). Though the NEC has featured various incarnations since its inception, charter members Fairleigh Dickinson, LIU Brooklyn, Robert Morris, St. Francis Brooklyn, Saint Francis U and Wagner remain part of the current 10-school alignment. They are joined by Mount St. Mary’s (admitted in 1989), Central Connecticut (1997), Sacred Heart (1999) and Bryant (2012). The NEC’s six-state geographic footprint includes access to such major media markets as New York City, Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Hartford and Providence. NEC member institutions now compete in 22 championship sports: baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, women’s bowling, men’s and women’s cross country, football, men’s and women’s golf, men’s and women’s indoor track and field, men’s and women’s lacrosse, men’s and women’s outdoor track and field, men’s and women’s soccer, softball, women’s swimming, men’s and women’s tennis, and women’s volleyball. An Innovative Leader Since 2015, the the #NECPride movement has manifested itself via the #conNECt initiative, which showcases the five key parts of the student-athlete life that exist outside the lines: • Classroom Achievement • Community Involvement • Campus Life • Career Aspirations • Conference Camaraderie Through the initiative, the Northeast Conference emphasizes the overarching idea that being a NEC student-athlete is about more than wins and losses; it is about educating and developing the whole person. The NEC continues to embrace social media to attract and convey its message to a growing fan base. The Conference has built a loyal following on its Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and SnapChat, and the NEC Overtime! blog remains a popular destination spot for fans of the league. One of the landmark moments in Northeast Conference history came back in August, 2012 with the launch of NEC Front Row. Approaching its five-year anniversary, the NEC’s popular digital platform continued to be a unifying thread among conference members and a one-stop portal for the league’s fans. The NEC’s state-of-the-art digital network debuted to rave reviews and in the five years since has attracted a loyal following for its rich set of content, which includes live regular season and NEC Championship events, on-demand video, highlight packages, coaches shows, features, original programming and access to league’s extensive digital library, all free of charge to users. The network gives fans inside access to the NEC and its student-athletes on the field, in the classroom, across campus, and in the community. By the end of year five, over 3,600 live events had been broadcast on Front Row with nearly 1.5 million viewers tuning in to the network. NEC Front Row saw viewership increase for the fourth consecutive year in 2016-17, with an 11.2 percent increase in ratings. A companion NEC on the Run iOS mobile app provides free, one-click access to live events and on-demand content from NEC Front Row. Fans can also join the conversation through the app’s social media integration. The NEC on the Run app can be downloaded on the iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. 50237The NEC hosted the second NEC Football “Social” Media Day from Giants Stadium last July followed by the fifth annual NEC Basketball “Social” Media Day at the state-of-the-art Barclays Center in October. The two events ceremoniously kicked off and tipped off their respective seasons. Fans were able to watch the festivities live on NEC Front Row and ESPN3. The broadcasts were interactive ones during which fans were encouraged to tweet comments and questions with the best making it on air. NEC Front Row was there when the basketball season tipped off at NEC “Social” Media Day, and returned for the climax as well via NEC Front Row Live! The online digital network was on the scene at the men’s and women’s title games, providing live pre- and post-game coverage wrapped around the ESPN broadcasts. As part of the NEC’s partnership with SnappyTV, the NEC was able to rapidly create and distribute in-game highlights from NEC Front Row broadcasts via the league’s social media channels. By year’s end, SnappyTV clips generated over 322,000 views for NEC highlights, including a number of clips that went viral and were picked up by national outlets such as ESPN, CBS,

about the northeast conference Bleacher Report and SB Nation. The NEC continued to produce original content in 2016-17, most notably The Whole Nine Yards (football) and NEC on the Run (men’s and women’s basketball) weekly shows that aired exclusively on NEC Front Row. The comprehensive shows featured a new graphic look for 2016-17 and aired highlights of recent events, previewed upcoming games, showcased spotlight performers, broke down key plays and tackled the latest in social media. NEC Front Row brought fans the league’s own version of the SportsCenter Top-10 throughout the 2016-17 season. It all started last September with the NEC Super 7 (football plays of the week) and NEC Fall Five (best plays from fall sports). The winter saw the return of the popular NEC9, featuring the top hoops plays, a number of which earned a spot on the actual #SCTop10. As the weather warmed up, the NEC Spring Sports Plays of the Week were added to the mix. Each Monday, the NEC unveiled it’s popular NEC in :90 segment, which provided an overview of the latest news and events from around the league. The conference moved to more visual based communication this past academic year, producing high quality artwork to celebrate the NEC’s athletic, academic and community service achievements, as well as the league’s commitment to good sportsmanship. Likewise, all year-end major award winners in every sport were honored with their own cutting-edge graphics. Having provided an alternate take on the world of NEC sports since 2011, the NEC Overtime! Blog continued to be a favorite destination for fans of the Conference and its members. Spearheaded by Ralph Ventre (@NECRalph), the blog showcased important happenings from around the NEC and served as a home for numerous fan-based promotions during the 2016-17 academic calendar, including the popular #SnapMadness contest as part of the NEC Basketball Tournament. The NEC once again maintained a comprehensive radio advertising campaign this winter. The NEC had a season-long radio presence in every market it serves, including New York (WFAN Sports Radio 66 & 101.9 FM), Pittsburgh (93.7 FM “The Fan”), Baltimore (105.7 FM “The Fan”), Hartford (ESPN Radio), Altoona (ESPN Radio) and Providence (WPRO). The 33-game NEC-TV package in 2016-17 featured the most in-depth national coverage in the league’s 36-year history. Every telecast in the NEC’s 2016-17 television package was distributed nationally in some form on ESPNU, ESPN3, CBS College Sports or Fox College Sports (FCS), while women’s games aired exclusively on ESPN3. ESPN2 broadcast the NEC men’s basketball championship game for the 30th straight year, while ESPNU carried the women’s championship for the tenth year in a row. MSG has been the NEC’s flagship regional network for 16 years, and was joined by Root Pittsburgh, MASN and Comcast in airing an assortment of hoops games last season. As part of its long-term agreement with ESPN, the NEC televised eight football games exclusively on ESPN3 last season. Success in the Classroom It was yet another record-setting year for NEC’s 4,000+ student-athletes in the classroom. NEC student-athletes averaged a record 3.24 GPA for the 2016-17 academic year. All ten NEC institutions finished the year with over a 3.0 GPA and 80.0 percent of NEC teams posted a 3.0 or better GPA. Nearly 2,200 student-athletes were named to the NEC Academic Honor Roll in 2016-17, and a record 592 were tabbed to the Commissioner’s Academic Honor Roll with GPAs of 3.75 or higher. The NCAA honored 30 NEC teams with public recognition awards for exceptional academic performance with respect to their latest Academic Progress Rate scores. NEC institutions also ranked among the nation’s elite in Graduation Success Rate (GSR) figures released by the NCAA with 36 teams achieving a perfect 100 percent GSR in their respective sports and 58 percent earning a GSR of over 90 percent. Men’s basketball student-athletes achieved a 95 percent GSR, the best mark in the nation. Student-athletes at Sacred Heart posted a combined 3.38 GPA to set a new NEC record and earn the 2016-17 NEC Institutional Academic Award. Athletic Achievement To have #NECPride is to live it, and NEC student-athletes did just that on the field of play during the 2016-17 season, a year that yielded seven All-American selections and six teams which earned national rankings in their respective sports. Not only did Sacred Heart repeat as Brenda Weare Commissioner’s Cup champion, but the Pioneers set a conference record in the process. SHU is now a seven-time Cup champion, breaking Monmouth’s record of six. The Pioneers also made it three consecutive Joan Martin Women’s Cups, the tenth such honor for SHU, also the most in NEC history. Bryant won its fourth consecutive Men’s Cup. It was another strong season for NEC women’s bowling. Remarkably, five of the NEC’s seven bowling members were ranked among America’s best in NTCA Top-20 polls that were released during the 2016-17 season. Perennial national power Fairleigh Dickinson earned an at-large berth to the NCAA Championship and ranked as high as sixth in the country. The Knights were joined by Sacred Heart (as high as 10th), LIU Brooklyn (13th), Saint Francis U (14th) and St. Francis Brooklyn (21st) in the polls. Fairleigh Dickinson bowler Melanie Hannon finished her illustrious career as a four-time NTCA All-American. In front of a sold out crowd at Knott Arena and a nationwide audience on ESPN2, Mount Mayhem was in full effect this past March when the Mountaineers won their fifth NEC men’s basketball title with a 71-61 triumph over Saint Francis U. The five conference championships for the Mount ties them for the second most in NEC history. The Mount also won the regular season crown for the second time in school annals. This past season marked the sixth straight in which an NEC men’s basketball team has won a postseason game and the first time in league history that two teams both pulled off victories. Mount St. Mary’s delivered a nailbiting 67-66 win over New Orleans in the NCAA opening round, then gave overall No. 1 seed Villanova all it handle in the first half before falling, 76-56. Joining the Mount in the postseason winner’s circle was Saint Francis U, which posted a 78-76 win over Jacksonville in the first round of the CIT. Like father, like son. A year after Robert Morris head coach Sal Buscaglia won the NEC women’s basketball title in his final season on the sidelines, his son, Charlie, did the same this past March. Led by NEC Player of the Year Anna-Niki Stamolamprou, the Colonials made it back-to-back conference championships with a 65-52 win over Bryant before a coast-to-coast audience on ESPNU and a cheering home crowd at the Sewall Center. It marked RMU’s sixth NEC Tournament crown and followed the program’s fifth regular season title. Three NEC women’s hoops teams competed in the postseason with Saint Francis U posting a 79-68 road win over Campbell in a first round WBI game. RMU took on Notre Dame in the first round of the NCAA Tournament, while Sacred Heart competed against St. John’s in the WNIT. NEC football produced four Stats Inc. All-Americans, led by Saint Francis U safety Lorenzo Jerome and Duquesne linebacker Christian Kuntz, both first team honorees. SFU wideout Kamron Lewis and Duquesne offensive lineman Ben Huss were both tabbed to the third team. Saint Francis U’s Lorenzo Jerome, who was named to six different All-America teams, went on earn MVP honors playing in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl, and forced three turnovers in the Senior Bowl. He was the first NEC player invited to either of the two games. Jerome also earned an invite to the NFL combine and was signed to a free agent deal by the San Francisco 49ers. Saint Francis U senior Francis de Vries added to his potential NEC Hall of Fame resume when he earned his third-straight All-America honor. The lockdown defender was named to the third team by the NSCAA, and was also chosen as a second team CoSIDA Academic All-American and the NEC Scholar-Athlete of the Year in men’s soccer. de Vries was selected by the Vancouver Whitecaps with the 29th pick in the MLS Draft.ing Quinnipiac women’s cross country (2005-12).

2016 SUMMARIES GAME 1 August 31, 2016 Wagner 38, Saint Anselm 16 Hameline Field Staten Island, NY – Junior quarterback Alex Thomson (Keyport, NJ/Keyport) passed for 176 yards and two touchdowns, in addition to scoring on a 59-yard run, while junior running Denzel Knight (Rochester, NY/Salisbury School) rumbled for 147 yards and a score to lead the Wagner football team to a convincing 38-16 victory over Saint Anselm at Hamline Field. The Seahawks outscored the Hawks 28-6 in the second half in breaking open a game that was tied 10-10 at halftime. Not to be lost among the many offensive superlatives on this night was a virtuoso defensive effort turned in by the Green & White, particularly in the second half. The only points allowed by the Seahawks following the halftime break came on the game’s very last play when Saint Anselm quarterback Yianni Gavalas tossed a 15-yard touchdown pass to Kyle Hill on fourth down as time expired. In the second half, the stingy Seahawk defense held the Hawks to just 166 yards from scrimmage. Sophomore inside linebacker Quintin Hampton (Moultrie, GA / Colquitt County), who began his collegiate career at FBS member Central Florida, led the Wagner defensive charge with a game-high 10 tackles, including seven solo stops while senior cornerback Tiquan Garner (Brookville, NY/ Long Island Lutheran) responded to his first start with nine tackles and two pass breakups. Also recording career highs in tackles for the Green & White were junior free safety Jesse Flaherty (Oceanport, NJ/ The Peddie School) and sophomore inside linebacker Santoni Graham (Arlington, VA/ Fork Union Military Academy) who recorded eight and five stops, respectively. “Great to get a win,” said coach Jason Houghtaling,. “We came out in the first half and had to deal with some adversity and our guys responded really positively and with real energy. I think we played extremely hard, which was great to see. ‘”I thought the defense really came alive in the second half,” he added. “Tony (coordinator Tony Brinson) changed up some calls at halftime, but what was really important was the way everyone stayed together. I thought we hit harder and played harder after halftime. For the evening, Thomson, finished 17-of-31 through the air, both career highs, for 176 yards. On this night, the 6-5, 225-pound Thomson was the ultimate distributor, as his 17 completions went to nine different receivers. For Knight, the 147 rushing yards also marked a career high and are the most by a Seahawk since October 26, 2013 when current New York Jet Dominique Williams ran for 177 yards on 33 carries vs. Georgetown. The 488 yards of total offense churned out tonight by the Seahawks marks their highest output since October 2, 2010 when the Seahawks amassed 460 yards in a 29-21 victory over Bryant. Quickie Statistics (Final) Saint Anselm vs WAGNER (Sept 1, 2016 at Staten Island, NY)

The second half was a scoreless defensive stalemate until senior running back Matthias McKinnon (Albany, NY/ Bishop Maginn/Jireh Prep [NC]) barreled into the end zone from five yards out, with just eight seconds remaining in the third quarter, en route to an eight-carry, 94-yard night. This score capped a 12-play, 63-yard drive and gave the Seahawks the lead for good at 17-10.

After forcing the Hawks into a three and out, Thomson took off on a nifty 59-yard touchdown run on 2nd-and-10 from his own 41 yard line. On a designed pass play, the Jersey Shore native pulled the ball down and dashed up the left sideline, before cutting back to the middle of the field, aided by a punishing downfield block from junior wide receiver John Williams (Sewell, NJ / Washington Township/Lackawanna JC [PA]). The career-long 59-yard Thomson jaunt extended the Seahawk lead to 24-10 with 13:50 remaining in the game. On their ensuing possession, Gavalas led the Hawks smartly into scoring range but on a 2nd-and-10 pass from the Seahawk 16, sophomore cornerback Sterling Lowry (Syracuse, NY/Nottingham/Milford Academy) came up with a big interception in the end zone to snuff out the threat. After Wagner took over on its own 20 following the touchback, McKinnon ripped off a 43 yard run all the way to the Hawk 37. On the very next play, Knight did the rest as the 6-2-, 220-pounder raced straight up the middle for a 37-yard touchdown. This score, which came with 41 seconds to go in the third quarter, made it a 31-10 game and effectively put the game out of reach. The Seahawks would add one final touchdown to complete a spree of 28 unanswered points when Thomson hit All-Northeast Conference (NEC) tight end Ryan Owens on a 21-yard touchdown strike with 2:52 to play to make it a 38-10 game. Wagner took an early 3-0 lead in this one on a 37-yard field goal by senior James Cooper (Linwood,, NJ/ Mainland Regional/Temple). After Saint Anselm ran off 10 straight points to make it a 10-3 game, the Seahawks tied things up 10-10 heading into halftime when Thomson found senior wide receiver Keith Foster (Newark, NJ/ Weequahic/Milford Academy) in the end zone on a six-yard pass to complete a sevenplay, 78-yard drive.

2016 SUMMARIES GAME 2 September 10, 2016 Wagner 38, Concordia 0 Hameline Field

Staten Island, NY – Staten Island, NY – Wagner excelled in all three phases of the game on a stifling hot afternoon at Hameline Field, as the Seahawks amassed 239 yards through the air, 125, more on the ground, and returned a punt 77 yards for a touchdown while allowing Concordia to gain just 116 yards of total offense, en route to a dominating 38-0 victory. In jumping out to the its first 2-0 start since 2006, junior quarterback Alex Thomson (Keyport, NJ/ Keyport) completed 18-of-27 passes in accounting for all of Wagner’s 239 aerial yards (all career highs) junior running back Denzel Knight (Rochester, NY / Salisbury School) surpassed the century mark for the second straight game in rushing for 112 yards, while senior Andre Yevchinez (Binghamton, NY/Binghamton) delivered his first career punt return for a touchdown, a nifty 77-yard effort up the left sideline in the second quarter. The 38-0 win is Wagner’s first shutout since a 20-0 blanking of Robert Morris on November 8, 2014. Wagner jumped on top quickly in this one when Knight raced 71 yards for a touchdown on the game’s second play from scrimmage. That’s the way the score stood until Yevchinecz received a punt at the Wagner 33, made several defenders miss early, before ambling his way up the left sideline for the 77-yard score that extended the Seahawks’ lead to 14-0 with 7:07 remaining in the first half.

After the Seahawks’ defense forced the Cardinals into a three-and-out, Wagner put together a crisp eight-play, 62-yard drive, keyed by a 41-yard completion from Thomson to junior wide receiver John Williams (Sewell, NJ / Washington Township/Lackawanna CC) that gave the Green & White a first-and-goal at the Concordia four-yard line. Two plays later, senior running back Matthias McKinnnon (Albany, NY / Bishop Maginn / Jireh Prep [NC]) bulled his way into the end zone over right tackle in extending the Seahawks’ bulge to 21-0. With Concordia backed up deep in its own end following an 11-yard loss on a bad snap, Wagner wisely used all three of its timeouts in trying to preserve time. After taking over at the Cardinals; 28 following a short punt, the Green & White covered the 28 yards in five plays with Thomson delivering a dart to Williams in the end zone on a 15-yard TD strike to with just four seconds left in the half to make it a 28-0 game at the intermission. The Seahawks received a break on this drive when Concordia was called for offside while Wagner was in the process of missing a 37-yard field goal, which gave the drive new life. The only scoring in the third quarter came on a 37-yard field goal by senior James Cooper (Linwood, NJ / Mainland Regional/ Temple) that extended the Seahawks’ lead to 31-0. The final score of the game came with 8:25 left to play when Thomson capped a six-play, 65-yard drive with an 11-yard TD toss Quickie Statistics (Final) to sophomore wide receiver Willie Dale (Staten Island, NY/St. Peter’s) Concordia vs Wagner (Sep 10, 2016 at Staten Island, NY) which fashioned the final score at 38-0.

“I thought we did some good things in all three areas – offense, defense and special teams,” said second-year head coach Jason Houghtaling. “As was the case last week, our guys continue to play hard. Obviously Denzel’s (Knight) big run got us off to a good early start. While Alex (Thomson) put up some good numbers, I think if you ask our guys, a lot of them would say they could have done some things better out there. Defensively, we rotated a lot of different guys in there, I think we played six different outside linebackers, and we did some really good things I though on that side of the ball. “Special teams, I think we did a solid job there also,” Houghtaling continued. “Of course, Yevy’s (Andre Yevchinecz) return was a great play, he received some nice blocking there and did the rest himself. But also, we kicked a field goal, our kickoffs were good and Bryan Rafano did a really nice job punting the ball (45.4-yard average, career-long 62-yarder). So, overall, I’m very pleased heading into the bye week. These guys continue to play for another, complement one another, and are playing hard.” As he did in last week’s 38-16 season-opening win over Saint Anselm, when he had 10 tackles, sophomore linebacker Quintin Hampton (Moultrie, GA / Colquitt County / UCF) paced Wagner this afternoon with seven stops. Recording five tackles apiece for the active and aggressive Seahawks’ defense were fifth-year senior linebacker Najee Harris (Norristown, PA/Norristown), sophomore linebacker Santon Graham (Arlington, VA / Bishop O’Connell / Fork Union Military Academy), senior defensive end Jordan Baskerville (West Point, NY / James I. O’Neill / Milford Academy) and senior linebacker D.J. Paul (Dix Hills, NY / Half Hollows East). Recording one sack apiece for the Green & White were Graham, freshman linebacker Cameron Gill (Douglasville, GA / Chapel Hill) and sophomore defensive end Julian McLeod (Miramar, FL / St. Thomas Aquinas). For Concordia, starting quarterback Seth Suida, under duress much of the game, was limited to 5-of-15 passing for 44 yards while being sacked twice. In the rushing department, the Cardinals were led by running back Joe Conner’s 34 yards on nine carries.

2016 SUMMARIES 3 2016 GAME SUMMARIES September 24, 2016 Boston College 42, Wagner 10 Alumni Stadium Chestnut Hill, MA – The Wagner football team took an early 7-0 lead on a 55-yard touchdown run by junior QB Alex Thomson (Keyport, NJ/ Keyport), and trailed by just a 14-10 count midway through the second quarter, before falling to Football Bowl Championship (FBS) Subdvision opponent Boston College, 42-10, at Alumni Stadium. Playing their sixth FBS opponent all time, and first from the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC), the 2-1 Seahawks open Northeast Conference (NEC) play on Saturday, October 1 with a 6:00 p.m. matchup vs. Sacred Heart in a game that will be seen on ESPN3. Thomson finished the day 13-of-25 passing for 62 yards. Due to 47 yards lost on sacks, the 6-5, 220-pound Jersey Shore native was credited with 20 net yards rushing on eight attempts. After BC (2-2) responded to the early 7-0 deficit with 14 straight points, the Green & White mounted an 11-play, 37-yard drive that resulted in a 33-yard field goal by fifth-year senior placekicker James Cooper (Linwood, NJ / Mainland Regional/ Temple), who has now been successful on 3-of-4 field goal attempts, in addition to a perfect 11-of-11 on extra points. Despite being on the field for 76 plays, as the Eagles held a 37:12-22:48 edge in time of possession, the Wagner defense was able to force the Eagles’ offense into a number of negative plays in front of 22,728 fans, the fourth-largest crowd to ever witness a Wagner football game. Leading the way defensively for the Seahawks was junior linebacker Randall May (Sparta, NJ/ Sparta), who had a game-high eight tackles, including seven solo stops, along with sophomore linebacker Santoni Graham (Arlington, VA / Bishop O’Connell / Fork Union Military Academy), who was in on six stops. Senior punter Bryan Rafano (South River, NJ / St. Joseph’s-Metuchen), had a productive game on a busy afternoon, punting the ball a career-high 10 times with an average of 40.3 yards per punt. The 2015 Second-Team All-NEC performer ,and a 2016 Preseason All-NEC choice, launched a game-long 52-yarder in the second quarter. “It was certainly nice to take that early lead and we did some good things out there against a very big, talented and well-coached team,” said Seahawk Quickie Statistics (Final) second-year head coach Jason Houghtaling. “We lost some battles Wagner vs Boston College (Sep 24, 2016 at Chestnut Hill, Mass.) at the line of scrimmage, and struggled to get their guys blocked WAGNER BC Score 10 42 at times.

“As I’ve said before, I really like our football team, the way they prepare and go about things,” Houghtaling added. Boston College sophomore quarterback Patrick Towles, a fifth-year senior transfer from Kentucky, had 46 yards on seven carries to go with 157 yards on 9-for-16 passing for the Eagles. Junior running back Jonathan Hilliman, a bruising 253-pounder, rushed 19 times for 83 yards and two touchdowns. Labady Sees First Action The contest vs. Boston College marked the Seahawk debut for junior running back/return specialist Franklin Labady (Hialeah, FL/Milford Academy), a speedy transfer from the University of Cincinnati. On the afternoon, the 5-8, 165-pound Sunshine State native, who sat out the first two games of the season due to injury, returned five kickoffs for 78 yards against the Eagles. Clifford Gains First Start Sophomore center Daniel Clifford (Hoboken, NJ/Hoboken) gained the first start of his young career.

2016 SUMMARIES

October 1, 2016 Wagner 45, Sacred Heart 20 Hameline Field Staten Island, NY – Senior running back Matthias McKinnon rushed for 157 yards on 24 carries and two touchdowns, while junior quarterback Alex Thomson (Keyport, NJ / Keyport) completed 15-of-28 passes for 276 yards and three touchdowns to carry Wagner to a thrilling 45-20 win over previously unbeaten Sacred Heart on Homecoming. With a boisterous crowd of 3,002 fans on hand at Hameline Field as well as a global audience watching on ESPN 3, the two teams combined for 59 first-half points, as the Green & White amassed a staggering 405 first-half yards in sprinting out to a 39-20 lead at the intermission. Both defenses held the upper hand in the second half. Following a scoreless third quarter, junior running back Denzel Knight (Rochester, NY / Salisbury School) shook loose on a 67-yard touchdown jaunt with 7:17 remaining in the game for the only points of the second half. Wagner’s impressive victory was the Northeast Conference (NEC) opener for both teams, as the Seahawks improve to 3-1 on the season, while the Pioneers, who were coming off a 38-10 win at No. 20 Stony Brook, saw their record fall to 4-1. Defensively for Wagner, redshirt freshman linebacker Santoni Graham (Arlington, VA / Bishop O’Connell / Fork Union Military Academy) paced the Seahawks with a game-high 11 tackles, including eight solo stops. Fifth-year senior outside linebacker and co-captain Najee Harris (Norristown, PA/ Norristown), added six tackles, a total that was matched by junior free safety Jesse Flaherty (Oceanport, NJ / Red Bank Catholic / The Peddie School), who also contributed a big interception in the Seahawk end zone on the last play of the first half. Flaherty’s INT was one of two that Wagner snared in its own end zone, as freshman cornerback Myron Morris (Miami, FL / Booker T. Washington) stepped in front of a third-quarter pass intended for wide receiver Moses Webb, to quell another Pioneer threat.

WR

For Sacred Heart, quarterback RJ Noel connected on 23-of-52 aerials for 327 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions while running back Ose Imeokparia added 48 yards rushing on 11 carries. McKinnon opened the scoring with a 41-yard first-quarter touchdown run, setting the tone for a dominating 264-yard team rushing performance. A missed extra pint left the score at 6-0 before Thomson found Knight Quickie Statistics (Final) on a five-yard TD strike to make it a 12-0 game as the Seahawks Sacred Heart vs Wagner (Oct. 1, 2016 at Staten Island, NY) were unsuccessful on a two-point conversion attempt.

After Sacred Heart pulled to within 12-6 on a seven-year touchdown pass from Noel to Webb, the Green & White scored the next 13 points on a pair of long field goals by senior James Cooper (Linwood, NJ / Mainland Regional/ Temple ). After converting on a 39-yard try, Cooper then hit from 52 yards out on a career-long boot that hit the crossbar before bounding through. McKinnon’s second touchdown of the night gave Wagner a 25-6 lead with 3:20 to play in the opening half. SHU then responded with a 99-yard kickoff return by Nate Chavious which made it a 25-13 game. Undaunted, the Seahawks answered right back with a quick-strike three-play, 63-yard drive, highlighted by a 50-yard touchdown pass from Thomson to a leaping John Williams (Sewell, NJ / Washington Township/Lackawanna CC (PA). The 6-6 junior wide receiver gathered the ball in at the five-yard line before diving into the end zone. William’s TD put Wagner in front, 32-13 before Noel led SHU on a five-play, 75-yard drive, capped by a 29-yard TD pass to wide receiver Andrew O’Neill to make it 32-20. Incredibly, Wagner had an answer here as well, as senior wide receiver Keith Foster (Newark, NJ / Weequahic / Milford Academy) made a leaping touchdown grab of his own, this one covering 39 yards, to make it a 39-20 game. Noel then marched SHU to the Wagner 36 but his high-arching pass on the half’s final play was picked off in the end zone by Flaherty. Wagner ended up with 540 yards of offense, 276 through the air and another 264 on the ground, while the Pioneers generated 435 yards of offense.

2016 SUMMARIES GAME 5 October 8, 2016 Columbia 15, Wagner 13 Hameline Field Staten Island, NY – Wagner delivered a top defensive performance in holding Columbia without a touchdown, but the Seahawks were unable to generate enough offensively to maintain a 13-6 halftime lead in dropping a hard-fought 15-13 decision. With the loss, the Green & White fall to 3-2 on the young season while Columbia improves to 1-3. Wagner, which is 1-0 in Northeast Conference (NEC) play following last week’s resounding 45-20 Homecoming triumph over Sacred Heart, return to league play on Saturday, October 15, when they travel to Central Connecticut for a 1:00 p.m. tussle that will be seen live on ESPN 3. Seahawk junior linebacker Quintin Hampton (Moultrie, GA / Colquitt County / UCF) spearheaded a Wagner defensive effort that repeatedly turned Columbia away in the red zone, and included two goal-line stands, in registering a game-high 12 tackles, headlined by three sacks. Redshirt freshman linebacker Santoni Graham (Arlington, VA / Bishop O’Connell / Fork Union Military Academy) added nine tackles while senior Tiquan Garner (Brookville, NY / Long Island Lutheran) continued his fine play, coming up from his cornerback spot to record eight tackles (all solo), including a sack and three tackles for loss. The 5-9, 165-pound Garner also recorded three pass breakups. Columbia freshman placekicker Oren Milstein was a perfect 5-of-5 on field goal tries on this damp, drizzly evening at Hameline Field, with the five made kicks setting a Columbia record. While the Lions were unable to find the end zone, a stout defensive effort allowed the five field goals - a pair of 18-yard kicks, along with makes from 33, 36 and 39 yards - to stand up. After Columbia came up with a fumble on a strip-sack of Wagner junior quarterback Alex Thomson (Keyport, NJ / Keyport) at the Seahawk 28 on the Seahawks’ first offensive possession, the Green & White turned in their first goal-line stand when fifth-year senior linebacker Najee Harris (Norristown, PA / Norristown) stuffed Columbia quarterback Anders Hill on 3rd-and-goal from the one. This forced the Lions to settle for a Milstein 18-yard field goal and a 3-0 lead with 8:40 left in the opening quarter. Following a touchback on the ensuing kickoff, Seahawk junior running back Franklin Labady (Hialeah, FL / Milford Academy), a speedy 5-8, 165-pound transfer from the University of Cincinnati, bolted up the right sideline for 54 yards on first down, racing all the way to the Columbia 21-yard line. Labady’s dash set up a 38-yard field goal by reigning Northeast Conference (NEC) Special Player of the Week, James Cooper (Linwood, NJ / Mainland Regional/ Temple), as the senior tied the game at 3-3. Following an exchange of punts, Thomson found running back Matthias McKinnon (Albany, NY / Bishop Maginn / Jireh Prep [NC[) in the left flat on a 3rdand-11 screen pass from the Lions’ 47, and the senior did the rest, breaking several tackles en route to a nifty 47-yard touchdown which gave the Seahawks a 10-3 lead. Quickie Statistics (Final) Columbia vs Wagner (Oct 08, 2016 at Staten Island, NY)

A Cooper 32-yard field goal with 2:50 left in the half extended the Wagner lead to 13-3 as the senior improved to 7-of-8 on field goal tries this season. Columbia answered with a 15-play, 59-yard drive that resulted in a 33-yard Milstein field goal with just three seconds left in the half to make it a 13-6 game at the intermission.

Columbia would knock on the door three more times in the second half, with the Seahawk defense forcing the Lions to settle for Milstein field goals of 39, 18 (following another Wagner goal-line stand), and 36 yards. The latter boot, which came with just 4:40 remaining in the game, gave the Columbia its first lead of the game at 15-13. On its final drive of the game, Thomson kept Wagner’s hope alive by lofting a high-arcing 25-yard completion to 6-6 junior wide receiver John Williams (Sewell, NJ / Washington Township/Lackawanna CC [PA]) on a clutch 4th-and-10 hook-up. A pair of completions to sophomore tight end Chris Woodard (North Tonawanda, NY / North Tonawanda), of 15 and five yards, respectively, moved the ball to the Columbia 35. Following a Lions’ timeout with 1:43 left, McKinnon was held for no game on 2nd-and-5 before Thomson was sacked for a seven-yard loss, on third down, back to the 42. With no time outs remaining, this set up a desperate 4th-and-12 situation, and when Thomson’s hurried pass attempt to Woodard fell incomplete, the Lions took over on downs and ran out the clock in holding on for the 15-13 win. “We didn’t execute offensively,” said Seahawk second-year head coach Jason Houghtaling. “Defensively, we held them to five field goals, yes, but at some point we were hoping for a big play there, a turnover - an interception, a fumble, or something. I just don’t think we made enough plays out there as a team to win the football game.” For the game, Thomson, who was coming off a 276-yard, threetouchdown effort in last week’s impressive 45-20 win over Sacred Heart, was 10-of-24 for 149 yards. Fifth-year senior tight end Ryan Owens led the Seahawks with three receptions (for 16 yards) while Williams’ 50 receiving yards, which came on a pair of 25 yards, paced Wagner. Thanks largely to his 54-yard run, Labady was the team’s leading rusher with 64 yards on three carries, while McKinnon rushed for a workmanlike 60 yards on 20 carries.

2016 SUMMARIES GAME 6 October 15, 2016 Wagner 25, Central Connecticut 21 Arute Field New Britain, CT – Wagner outscored Central Connecticut 15-0 in the fourth quarter in posting a thrilling 25-21 come-from-behind Northeast Conference (NEC) road victory at sunsplashed Arute Field and live on ESPN3. Junior quarter Alex Thomson (Keyport, NJ / Keyport) led Wagner on fourth-quarter touchdown drives of 90 and 54 yards en route to a 270-yard passing performance. Thomson’s second-highest career passing day came on 19-of-28 accuracy, with senior wide receiver Andre Yevchinecz (Binghamton, NY/Binghamton) corralling four receptions for 88 yards. Junior running back Denzel Knight (Rochester, NY / Salisbury School) rushed for a career-high 150 yards on just 13 carries, an effort buoyed by first quarter runs of 51 and 70 yards with the 51-yarder coming on Wagner’s first play from scrimmage and the latter which gave the Seahawks an early 7-0 lead. Senior running back Matthias McKinnon (Albany, NY / Bishop Maginn / Jireh Prep [NC]), who was named the ESPN 3 Player of the Game, added 73 hard-fought yards on 18 carries, in addition to coming up with four catches for 69 yards. Wagner took early leads of 7-0 and 10-7 before CCSU turned a turnover and a host of penalties into a pair of second-quarter touchdowns in talking a 21-10 halftime lead. Following a scoreless third quarter, senior kicker James Cooper (Linwood, NJ / Mainland Regional/ Temple) trimmed the deficit to 21-13 with a 37-yard field goal on the very first play of the fourth quarter. The ensuing CCSU drive proved to be a key sequence in the game. After running back Cameron Nash sprinted 58 yards to give the Blue Devils a first down at the Seahawk 25, the Wagner defense stiffened, forcing the Central into a 4th-and-3 at the 10-yard line. Rather than attempting a 27-yard field goal, CCSU rolled the dice with a fake, but starting quarterback/holder Jacob Dolegala overthrew well-covered tight end Brian Kowalczyk in the back of the end zone. Taking over on their own 10, the Seahawks used a mixture of run and pass to march 90 yards in 13 plays over a span of 5:58, with the drive culminating in a five-yard touchdown strike from Thomson (Keyport, NJ / Keyport) to senior wide receiver Brandon Peoples (Abington Township, PA / Archbishop Wood/Milford Academy) with 6:15 left in the game. This score made it a 21-19 game and Wagner went for the two-point conversion in an effort to tie the game, but Thomson’s pass to Peoples in the right flat was low and incomplete, leaving the Devils with a two-point lead. After the Wagner defense forced CCSU into a three and out, the Seahawks took over in excellent field position at their own 46 with 5:06 left. A pair of Thomson completions to junior wide receiver John Williams (Sewell, NJ / Washington Township/Lackawanna CC [PA], the latter a 15-yard grab with 1:46 left, gave the Seahawks a first down at the CCSU 11. McKinnon knifed his way for 10 yards to the one and punched it in from there to give Wagner a 25-21 lead with just 1:06 remaining, which is the way the score remained after Thomson’s two-point pass attempt to Yevchinecz in the end zone was incomplete.

The Blue Devils returned the ensuing kickoff to their own 17 and reached their own 48, but a Hail Mary pass from Dolegala was intercepted by senior safety Tim Hayes (Los Angeles, CA / Crespi Carmelite / Wyoming) at the goal line, as the Seahawk celebration began. In addition to outscoring CCSU 15-0 in the second half, Wagner outgained the Devils 210-136 following halftime. “We went out there in the second half and played with a great deal of passion and it was awesome,” said Houghtaling. “We had bad snaps, too many penalties, all kinds of things going on out there, but credit the kids and the coaching staff. At the end, we drove down the field, made plays, and won a football game. So that’s what it’s all about.” For the game, Wagner amassed 467 yards of offense, 270 through the air, and 197 rushing, while CCSU gained 358 yards of total offense. Dolegala wound up 18-of-36 for 243 yard and two touchdowns. Nash was the Devils’ leading ground-gainer with 97 yards on 13 carries. Defensively, linebacker Randall LaGuerre came up with a game-high 14 tackles. Defensively for Wagner, junior safety Jesse Flaherty (Oceanport, NJ / Red Bank Catholic / The Peddie School) registered nine tackles, to go with

an interception, in matching sophomore linebacker Santoni Graham’s (Arlington, VA / Bishop O’Connell / Fork Union Military Academy) for game-high honors.

“We played hard on defense,” Houghtaling added. “I think we blitzed a little more in the second half and got after the quarterback some. Credit to CCSU, they’re a good team and their staff does a tremendous job. What a great football game, just a really great day for use here at Central Connecticut.” “We’re going to enjoy this one for 24 hours, correct and clean some things up, and then get ready for Bryant next week,” Houghtaling added.

2016 SUMMARIES GAME 7 October 22, 2016 Bryant 27, Wagner 17 Bulldogs Stadium Smithfield, RI – Wagner junior quarterback Alex Thomson (Keyport, NJ / Keyport) completed 17 of 37 passes for 230 yards and a touchdown, but it was not enough, as Bryant earned a 27-17 Northeast Conference (NEC) victory.. The loss is the Seahawks’ first in NEC play, as the Green & White fall to 2-1 in the conference and 4-3 overall. With the win, the Bulldogs are now also 2-1 in the NEC and improve to 3-4 overall. Defensively, sophomore linebacker Santoni Graham (Arlington, VA / Bishop O’Connell / Fork Union Military Academy) paced the Seahawks with 13 tackles while fellow sophomore linebacker Quintin Hampton (Moultrie, GA / Colquitt County / UCF) added 11 stops. For Bryant, running back Brendan Famiano rushed for 98 yards, Dalton Easton threw for 172 yards, and Matt Sewall returned a kickoff 97 yards in leading the Bulldogs’ to victory. After taking a 3-0 lead on a 42-yard first-quarter field goal by Rickey Perez, Bryant increased its lead to 10-0 with 7:59 left in the first half on a four-yard run by bruising 6-2, 268-pound fullback Hunter Taute, which capped a 14-play, 80-yard drive. The Seahawks struck right before halftime when Thomson engineered an eight-play, 64-yard match, finished off by a one-yard touchdown run from senior running back Matthias McKinnon (Albany, NY / Bishop Maginn / Jireh Prep [NC]) with 18 seconds to play in the half, to make it a 10-7 game at the Quickie Statistics (Final) Wagner vs BRYANT (Oct 22, 2016 at Smithfield, R.I.) intermission. Sewall opened the second half with his first long kickoff return of the game, a 60-yard jaunt up the right sideline all the way to the Seahawk 30-yard line. Bryant matched inside the Wagner five before the Seahawk defense put together an impressive goal-line stand, forcing the Bulldogs to settle for an 18-yard Perez field goal and a 13-7 lead.

Later in the quarter, the Green & White embarked on a nine-play, 62yard drive that culminated in a 33-yard field goal by senior James Cooper (Linwood, NJ / Mainland Regional/ Temple) that drew Wagner to within 13-10 at the 3:29 mark. This is when Sewall struck for his back-breaking 97-yard kickoff return that made it a 20-10 game with 3:24 to go in the third quarter. That’s the way the score remained until Thomson hit senior wide receiver Andre Yevchinecz (Binghamton, NY / Binghamton) on a clutch fourth-andseven screen pass over the middle for a 32-yard score. This Thomson to Yevchinecz connection came on the first play of the fourth quarter, ending a seven-play, 72-yard drive that made it 20-17. The Bulldogs, however, countered with a seven-play, 74-yard drive. Dalton hit wide receiver Taylor Barthelette on a 23-yard score, as Bryant went ahead by a 27-17 count and hung on from there. “The kickoff returns had a major impact on the game, no question,” said second-year head coach Jason Houghtaling. “On the first one, we didn’t execute the kick the right way and on the second one we kicked it down the middle and just had one guy blown out of his lane. You’re not going to win games doing those things. There were definite positives on both sides, but overall we just didn’t get it done.”

2016 SUMMARIES GAME 8 October 29, 2016 UMass 34, Wagner 10 McGuirk Stadium

Amherst, MA – Wagner junior Alex Thomson (Keyport, NJ / Keyport) threw for 295 yards, the highest output by a Seahawk quarterback in 10 years, with junior wide receiver John Williams (Sewell, NJ / Lackawanna JC) hauling in six reception for 80 yards and a touchdown, but the Green & White could not overcome a 27-0 halftime deficit in falling at UMass, 34-10. With the win, the Minutemen, who compete in the Football Bowl Subdivision level (FBS) improve to 2-7. With the loss, the Seahawks fall to 4-4 on the season. “Whenever you play up, a team from the FBS, you can’t do things to hurt yourself and at the beginning today, we hurt ourselves several times,” said Seahawk second-year head coach Jason Houghtaling. “Credit UMass too. Maybe some of those penalties are due to us trying to block their speed. “We eventually got some stops and did some good things offensively, but we just made too many mistakes today to beat a team like this,” he added.. The Green & White moved the ball well early but were undone by 75 yards in penalties in falling behind by a 14-0 count after one quarter. Trailing 7-0 following a 28-yard touchdown pass from UMass quarterback Andrew Ford to wide receiver Adam Breneman, Thomson hit speedy junior wide receiver Franklin Labady (Hialeah, FL / U. of Cincinnati) for a 47-yard pickup down to the Minutemen 14-yard line. But an unsportsmanlike penalty following the play pushed Wagner back 15 yards and, after Thomson was sacked on third down, Wagner was forced to punt. Late in the first quarter, UMass left-handed quarterback Andrew Ford threw the second of his three first-half touchdowns, this one a six-yard toss to Brenemen, as the Minutemen opened a 14-0 lead on an 84-yard drive that was aided by another 15-yard personal foul on the Seahawks. With 12:37 left in the opening half, Ford went to work again, finding wide receiver Andy Isabella on a 55-yard scoring strike, his third of the half, to extend the Minutemen lead to 21-0. Quickie Statistics (Final) Wagner vs Massachusetts (10/29/16 at Amherst, MA)

After Logan Laurent booted a pair of field goals, from 33 and 22 yards, respectively, UMass took a 27-0 lead into the locker room at halftime. Thomson was 8-of-14 passing for 141 yards in the first half but the Seahawks had nothing to show for it, thanks in large part to five penalties and two sacks.

Ford opened the second-half scoring by scrambling 16 yards for another score that extended the Minutemen lead to 34-0 with 8:49 left in the third quarter. Taking over on their own 23 following the kickoff, Thomson led the Seahawks on a 14-play, 67-yard drive that culminated in a 27-yard field goal by senior James Cooper (Linwood, NJ / Temple U), who improved to 11-of-14 on field goal tries for the season, to get Wagner on the board. After junior defensive end Jordan Baskerville (West Point, NY / Milford Academy) forced UMass to punt with a third-down sack of Ford, Wagner found its offensive rhythm. With a drive that began at the Seahawk sevenyard line following the Minutemen punt, Thomson led the Seahawks on an efficient 16-play, 93-yard touchdown drive. Thomson was 6-of-7 through the air during this scoring march, finding four different receivers, including Williams on a two-yard toss with 6:29 left to play, which fashioned the final score at 34-10. UMass wound up with a 507-367-yard edge in total offense with Ford leading the way by completing 25-of-39 passes for 355 yards and those three scores. The Minutemen had a pair of receivers top the 100-yard mark, as Breneman wound up with eight grabs for 138 yards while Isbabella also caught eight passes, with his receptions going for 123 yards and one touchdown. Williams’ six-catch, 80-yard receiving day came following a six-catch, career-high 112-yard effort at Bryant last week. Senior wide receiver Nour Aly a(North Caldwell, NJ / West Esssex also got into the act, recording career highs with four catches for 39 yards, while fellow senior wideout Andre Yevchinecz (Binghamton, NY / Binghamton) wound up with three receptions for 43 yards.

Staten Island, NY – Wagner jumped out to a 10-0 lead and led 17-14 at halftime, before Duquesne mounted a second-half comeback in earning a 28-20 Northeast Conference (NEC) at Hameline Field. The teams entered today’s play tied for second place in the league standings with identical 2-1 conference records. With the victory, the defending NEC champion Dukes improve to 6-3 overall and 3-1 in conference play, while the Seahawks fall to 4-5 on the season and 2-3 in league. The Green & White will make the long trek to Robert Morris on Saturday, November 12 at noon before returning home to meet first-place Saint Francis U in the regular season finale. The Senior Day kickoff between the Seahawks and the Red Flash is also at noon. On the game’s first possession today, Wagner moved the ball sharply, as junior quarterback Alex Thomson (Keyport, NJ / Keyport) led the Seahawks on a 10-play, 52-yard drive that resulted in a 33-yard field goal by senior James Cooper (Linwood, NJ / Mainland Regional / Temple) to take an early 3-0 lead. After forcing the Dukes into a three and out on their first possession, the Seahawks marched 65 yards in nine plays, with Thompson scampering in on a 10-yard touchdown score with 4:48 left in the first quarter, increasing the Wagner lead to 10-0.

The Seahawks responded with an impressive drive of their own, navigating 80 yards in nine plays with junior running back Denzel Knight (Rochester, NY / Salisbury School) barreling in from one year out at the 11:54 mark of the second quarter to

It was then Duquesne’s turn to go back to work, as quarterback Dillon Buechel guided the Dukes on a seven-play, 74-yard drive, culminating in a five-yard run by P.J. Fullmore which sliced the deficit to 17-14. In the third quarter, Wagner covered 64 yards in 11 plays before the drive stalled at the Dukes’ 22-yard line. Cooper came on to nail a 39-yard field goal to give the Green & White a 20-14 lead with 8:09 remaining in the third quarter.

The Dukes then put the game away with another long drive, this one an 11-play, 85-yard march which featured the pivotal play of the game. With under five minutes left to play and the Dukes facing a 4thand-2 at the Seahawk 18, Hines burst through the middle of the line and broke several tackles in churning his way for an 18-yard TD run that made it a 28-20 game with 4:34 left. Thomson wound up 17-of-31 through the air for 218 yards with a long completion of 43 yards to senior wide receiver John Williams in the third quarter. Senior tight end Ryan Owens (Gainesville, NY Letchworth) had five catches for 67 yards, while senior wide receiver Nour Aly (North Caldwell, NJ / West Essex) recorded a second straight career game, finishing with five grabs for 60 yards, both career highs. A week ago at UMass, Aly posted the career highs with four receptions for 39 yards. On the ground, Knight paced the Seahawks with 61 yards rushing on 23 carries. Wagner was hampered by the absence of senior running back Matthias McKinnon (Albany, NY / Bishop Maginn / Jireh Prep) the team’s second-leading rusher, who sat out the game due to injury. In McKinnon’s stead, junior Franklin Labady provided a spark with 54 yards rushing on just five carries. Defensively, sophomore linebacker Quintin Hampton (Moultrie, GA / Colquitt County / UCF) led the way with 10 tackles, seven of which were solo stops. Senior cornerback Tiquan Garner (Brookville, NY Long Island Lutheran) added seven stops for the Seahawks.

Annually at homecoming, two Wagner College football players are selected to receive special awards for outstanding play. The James Robb Memorial Trophy is presented to the outstanding offensive player, while the Nick Lia Memorial Trophy is awarded to the Seahawks’ outstanding defensive player. Established in 1949, the Robb Trophy was named in memory of James Robb, a Seahawk gridiron star who was killed in action during World War II. It was presented to Wagner’s outstanding individual player in the annual Homecoming game until 1969. In that season, the Lia Trophy was introduced in honor of another Wagner football player, Nick Lia. The 1965 recipient of the Robb Trophy was killed in the Vietnam War. An outstanding defensive player and team captain, the Staten Island native was a graduate of Curtis High School. In 2000, Lt. Nick Lia was honored for his athletic achievements by being inducted into the Wagner College Athletics Hall of Fame. Lia helped lead the 1964 football team to an undefeated season and captained the ‘65 team. This year’s winners, as selected by an alumni panel, will be announced at the end of this season’s Homecoming contest. Each recipient receives an award and his name is added to the standing trophies Son display in the Hall of Fame Room in the Spiro Sports Center.

Gus Keifer, 1928 Football Captain 1933 After two losses by a combined score of 71-0, the remainder of Wagner’s 1933 schedule is cancelled due to a shortage of players. Coach Frank Spotts organizes intramural games and promises to field a team the following season. NOVEMBER 12, 1938 Wagner defeats Bergen County College 24-0 to finish the season with a 4-2 record, its first winning season. This signals an amazing turnaround as the Green Wave had been winless for the previous three seasons.

The Wagner College strength and conditioning program is as important as any other vital function of the athletic department. It is a key component in the development of the student-athlete, focusing on improving athletic performance and physical capabilities. The Wagner College athletics department formally dedicated the modern, fully-functional 3,076 square foot Dr. Gregory P. Knapp ‘66 H’00 Strength Room in the Spiro Sports Center in December, 2009 The realization of this significant undertaking was performed thanks to the generosity of many people, chief among them Dr. Thomas G. Moles ’65 H’00, a lifetime member of the Wagner College Board of Trustees and former Seahawk football player who made a major gift towards the project in the name of his good friend, the late Gregory Knapp ’66 H’00. Knapp, who passed away in July, was also a lifetime member of the Wagner College Board of Trustees and a former Seahawk football letterwinner. “I’d like to thank Tom Moles, a long-time friend of Wager College and our athletic department, as well as the many other donors whose generosity in Greg Knapp’s name made the installation of this center possible,” said Wagner College Athletic Director/Head football coach Walt Hameline. “The Gregory P. Knapp ‘65 Strength Room is a tremendous addition to our athletic program and will benefit countless studentathletes in the coming years. “This facility will also greatly benefit the general student body as this will free up our current strength center for their use,” Hameline continued. “The addition of the Gregory P. Knapp ‘65 Strength Room is truly a win-win situation for the entire Wagner College community.”

Joe Varga - Assistant Athletic Director for Athlete Performance Joe Varga was named Assistant Athletic Director for Athlete Performance at Wagner in February, 2017. Since 2011, Varga, who will oversee the day-to-day supervision of a six-person staff in support of Wagner’s 22-sport athletic program, has served at Marshall University as the director of strength and conditioning for the men’s basketball team. Varga is no stranger to the Northeast Conference (NEC), having graduated from Central Connecticut State in 2006 where he was a member of the Blue Devils’ football team. “I’m excited to have Joe join the Seahawk athletic family,” said Hameline. “He’s a former Division I athlete in our conference who has gone on to develop a track record of improving the strength and overall fitness levels of studentathletes. And he’s done it at a variety of institutions while working with many different sports.” Varga arrived at Marshall after spending three seasons at The Citadel. He served as a graduate assistant with the Bulldogs before becoming the Associate Director of Strength and Conditioning in May of 2010 where he directly oversaw the men’s basketball program. During the 2007-08 season, Varga was the assistant strength and conditioning coach at the University of Rhode Island where he worked primarily with men’s and women’s track and field, men’s and women’s tennis, women’s crew, women’s gymnastics and men’s and women’s swimming. One of Varga’s early jobs in collegiate athletics was at Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Worcester, MA where he was the strength and conditioning coach primarily in charge of women’s crew. Varga also interned at the College of Holy Cross from 2006-07. In addition to his more than 10 years of experience as a collegiate strength coach, in 2007-08, Varga served as a personal trainer at the Boroughs Family Branch YMCA in Westboro, MA. In this role, he spent time training individuals of all ages and develop challenging workouts to help clients meet their goals. After earning a bachelor’s degree in exercise science from Central Connecticut State in 2006, he went on to earn a master’s degree in health, exercise and sports science from the Citadel in 2011. Varga is certified as a USA Weightlifting Sports Performance Coach and a Strength and Conditioning Specialist. He is also a member of USA Weightlifting and the National Strength and Conditioning Association.
