PREVIEW Head coach Matt Mitchell is set to embark on his first season as the head coach of the Grand Valley State football program. Mitchell takes over for former head coach Chuck Martin who led the Lakers to two NCAA DII National Championships and three title game appearances in his six years at the helm. The Lakers have advanced to the NCAA DII National Championship game in six of the last nine years, but GVSU’s 3023 loss in the final game of 2010 was the first time the Lakers have lost the title game since 2001. Prior to 2009, GVSU had won each of the four title games in which they appeared (2002, 2003, 2005, 2006). The Lakers capped off the last decade with a 112-13 overall record, including seven conference championships and nine playoff appearances. Offense The Lakers return 23 lettermen on the offensive side of the ball, including seven starters. In addition, GVSU returns 20 of 21 players listed on the two-deep as an offensive lineman or tight end. However, GVSU will have to find replacements for several key offensive skill position players, including three-time Harlon Hill nominee Brad Iciek and one of the most productive offensive players in Laker football history in Blake Smolen.

Redshirt freshmen Heath Parling, Taylor Copacia and Isiah Grimes are competing for playing time and add quality depth to the quarterback position. Running Back The Lakers lost three of their top four ground gainers from last season, but have a stable of talented replacements waiting in the wings.

Wide Receivers The Lakers have to replace do-it-all receiver Blake Smolen who concluded his career as the all-time, all-purpose leader at Grand Valley State. However, senior Ryan Bass, who was second on the team in receiving last year with 36 catches for 605 yards and eight touchdowns, returns and is ready for a breakout year. Bass led the team in receiving four times and had two 100-yard receiving games, both in the postseason. Bass had a big national championship game, catching eight passes for 111 yards and a touchdown against Northwest Missouri State. Also returning for GVSU is junior Greg Gay, who tallied 20 catches for 310 yards and three touch-

Canyon, Tex. - No. 1 ranked Grand Valley State started the 2009 season with a daunting road trip to West Texas for a matchup with No. 11 West Texas A&M. The Lakers passed the first test of the season with an impressive 37-23 victory before a crowd of 15,093 at Kimbrough Memorial Stadium. Grand Valley State opened the season offensively and drove down the field in impressive fashion. When Senior quarterback Brad Iciek hit sophomore tight end Andrew Lorman with an 18-yard scoring pass over the middle for a touchdown. The Lakers drove 80 yards in 11 plays and took 4:42 off the clock for the score. The catch was the first of Lorman's career. Following a Laker fumble by junior running back James Berezik, West Texas A&M drove 58 yards in nine plays as QB Taylor Harris hit Tyson Williams with 5-yard scoring pass at the 1:11 mark of the first quarter to tie the game at 7-7. The Laker defense made a stand as the Buffaloes drove inside the Grand Valley State 10 and lined up for a 25-yard field goal attempt. WTAM attempted a bit of trickery with a fake field goal, but senior safety Jacob McGuckin and cornerback Enrique Shaw sniffed out the play and stopped West Texas A&M at the Laker five. West Texas A&M did get points as on GVSU's second play from scrimmage Iciek had to fall on bad snap for a safety. Both teams traded punts before the Lakers held the Buffaloes and took possession of the ball on its own 26 with 2:26 remaining in the half. Grand Valley State picked up a key third down on a completion to junior WR Mike Koster and Iciek hit junior WR Ryan Bass for a first down completion to the WTAM 46 with :14 seconds left on the clock. Iciek then took the air out the Buffaloes sails when he found WR Blake Smolen all alone down the GVSU sideline for a 46-yard touchdown pass to give the Lakers a 14-9 halftime lead. "The was a huge play and I thought it really changed the momentum," said GVSU head coach Chuch Martin. "I thought we had played well to that point, but it was nice to go into the lockerroom with the lead." The Laker defense then made a big play to open the third quarter as safety Jake McGuckin picked off a pass on the Buffaloes opening drive. Iciek led the Lakers on a 6-play, 61-yard scoring drive that upped the GVSU lead to 21-9. Iciek hit TE Tony Carreri with a 33 yard pass to the West Texas five and then scored on a 5-yard run. P.T. Gates set up the Lakers' next score all on his own. He returned a punt 16 yards to the WTAM 39 and then rambled 35 yards to the Buffaloe four. Iciek then hit Koster with a TD pass to up the GVSU lead to 28-9. Freshman LB Luther Ware picked up a bad snap on a West Texas A&M field goal attempt and ran 68 yards for a TD to give the Lakers a 34-9 lead. Ware's fumble return was the fourth longest in GVSU football history and the first since Anthony Adams returned a fumble 28 yards for a TD versus North Dakota in the 2006 NCAA Playoffs. The Buffaloes drove 58 yards in six plays for a TD to pull within 34-16 with :48 seconds in the third quarter, but the Lakers took 6:53 off the clock with a 15-play, 60-yard scoring drive the culminated with a Justin Trumble 23-yard field goal. West Texas scored the final points of the game with :41 seconds left and the result already determined. Iciek completed 17-of-25 passes for 216 yards and three TDs, while Koster caught a career-high seven passes for 68 yards and a TD. Junior RB James Berezik rushed 19 times for 105 yards and moved into eighth on the all-time career rushing list (2,529). Gates rushed eight times for 62 yards, while Smolen caught three passes for 64 yards and a TD. FS Zach Breen led the defense with nine tackles, while CB Rob Carlisle added eight tackles. The Laker defense forced four turnovers.

Game 2 September 5, 2009

Indianapolis, Ind. - Grand Valley State claimed a 26-10 victory over Indianapolis before a crowd of 4,803 at Key Stadium. GVSU improves to 2-0 on the year, while Indianapolis falls to 1-1. The Lakers drove 64 yards in eight plays for a TD on its opening possession. Senior QB Brad Iciek found junior TE Andrew Lorman wide open in the corner of the end zone for a touchdown pass that covered nine yards. Justin Trumble missed the PAT and the Lakers led 6-0. Indianapolis answered with a 74-yard screen pass for a TD on third down and with the PAT led 7-6. The Lakers drove deep in Indianapolis territory twice, but failed to convert on two fourth down plays. GVSU drove deep in Greyhound territory for a fourth time and came away with a Trumble 22-yard field goal to give the Lakers a 9-7 lead. "We came out on the first possession and were crisp, but then we lost our focus and made way to many mistakes on our next three drives," said GVSU head coach Chuck Martin. "We had too many dropped passes and mental errors." The Lakers regained their focus on its final two possessions of the first half. Iciek directed a 5-play, 42yard drive that concluded with an eight-yard scamper by P.T. Gates. The GVSU defense forced a three and out, followed by 3-play, 48-yard drive that took just :25 seconds. The entire drive consisted of three passes to WR Mike Koster, the final one covering five yards with 51 seconds left in the half. The Lakers held a 19:56-10:04 advantage in time off possession in the first half and outgained the Greyhounds 321-126. The Laker defense forced a Greyhound turnover late in the third quarter when DL Nick Lawrence forced a fumble that FS Matt Bakker recovered. Junior RB James Berezik moved the ball inside the Indianapolis 10 with a 37 yard run and Trumble hit a 30-yard field goal for the Lakers' only points of the second half. Indianapolis added a late field goal for the final margin. Berezik led the rushing attack with 101 yards on 20 carries, while Gates added 83 yards on 12 carries. Iciek completed 19-of-36 passes for 240 yards and two TDs, while Koster led the receiving corps with five catches for 68 yards. Justin Victor led the defense with 11 tackles, while Jacob McGuckin added 10 stops

Allendale, Mich. - It was a record setting night at Lubbers Stadium and the top-ranked Grand Valley State football team did not disappoint with a convincing 38-7 victory over No. 13 Saginaw Valley State. The Lakers' claimed their 45th straight regular season win and 42nd consecutive GLIAC win before the largest crowd to ever witness a West Michigan outdoor event, a GLIAC record and a Lubbers Stadium record crowd of 16,467. Grand Valley State scored on its opening drive for the third straight week, driving 53 yards in nine plays as senior PK Justin Trumble converted a 21-yard field goal. The Laker defense forced a Cardinal punt on its first drive and the GVSU offense went back into action. Senior QB Brad Iciek found junior WR Mike Koster alone in the endzone for 16-yard scoring pass to up the Laker lead to 10-0. The drive was 77 yards in eight plays and consumed 4:01. Following another three-and-out by the Laker defense Iciek hit senior WR Blake Smolen in stride for a 64-yard TD pass and catch that lifted the Laker lead to 17-0 with 4:44 left in the opening quarter. "We started fast offensively and the defense did a great job of getting the ball back to us," said 6th-year head Chuck Martin who improved to 64-5 as head coach. "Brad did a great job of directing the offense and the offensive line did a great job of protecting him in the pocket." The Laker defense provided the games first turnover as senior CB Rob Carlisle picked off the first of his two interceptions on the night and gave the Lakers prime field position in SVSU territory. The offense continued to keep the pressure on the reeling Saginaw Valley State defense and it took just three plays to score. Iciek hit senior RB P.T. Gates over the middle with a 29-yard scoring pass and a 24-0 Laker advantage. Saginaw Valley State scored its only points on the game with a 9-play, 66-yard drive that culminated with a 12-yard scoring pass from Charles Dowdell to Galen Stone. The Lakers answered again, this time with an 11-play, 60-yard scoring drive. Iciek hit Smolen in stride over the middle with a 15-yard scoring pass and GVSU went into the lockerroom with a 31-7 lead. "I thought we came out ready to play and it showed on both sides of the ball," added Martin. The only points of the second half came on a 52-yard TD reception by junior WR Ryan Bass from Iciek. Carlisle picked off his second pass of the night and helped the defense hold the Cardinals to just seven points. The Cardinal offense converted just 1-of-4 first downs and 5-of-16 third downs. Iciek completed 18-of-27 passes for 336 yards and five TDs. His five TDs tied a career-high and gave him a career total of 73. In addition, he moved into fifth on the all-time passing yards chart with 6,069. Smolen hauled in six receptions for 112 yards and two TDs, while Koster chipped in fourth catches for 80 yards. Nine different Lakers caught passes. Jimmy Berezik rushed for 74 yards on 12 carries for GVSU. Defensively, junior DT Danny Richard led the way with eight tackles and two tackles for loss (-8). Justin Victor added eight tackles, while sophomore Zach Breen recorded eight stops. The GVSU defense notched eight tackles for loss and two QB sacks. GVSU tallied 464 yards of total offense, including 365 through the air.

Game 4 September 19, 2009

Big Rapids, mich. - No. 1 Grand Valley State and Ferris State battled for four quarters Saturday night in Big Rapids, but in the end a 9-yard touchdown pass from senior QB Brad Iciek to junior WR Mike Koster with 4:13 left in the game proved to be the difference in the Lakers' 17-10 victory. GVSU improves to 4-0 overall and 3-0 in GLIAC action, while Ferris State falls to 1-3 overall and 0-3 in GLIAC action. Grand Valley State dominated the first half stats, but held a slim 10-3 lead. Iciek hit Koster with a 5-yard TD pass with 4:53 left in the first quarter to culminate an 8-play, 77-yard drive. Justin Trumble added the PAT for a 7-0 Laker lead. Trumble then upped the GVSU lead to 10-0 with a 22-yard field goal with 7:22 left in the first half. Ferris State answered with a Shawn Snoor 45-yard field goal to pull the Bulldogs within seven (10-3). Iciek led the Lakers deep inside FSU territory, but a James Berezik fumble was recovered by FSU to snuff out the GVSU scoring opportunity. GVSU racked up 257 yards of total offense and limited FSU to just 79 total yards, 35 of which came on one running play, in the opening two quarters. After a scoreless third quarter, Ferris State used a big play early in the fourth quarter to pull even. Kyle Parrish hit Aaron Olman, who snuck behind the Laker secondary, with a 74 yard pass and catch to the Laker two. Tyler Thomas then found pay dirt and Snoor added the PAT to tie the game at 10-10. Both teams traded punts before Iciek directed the gamewinning drive. Iciek used the ground game and a short passing game to move down the field with the 8-play, 56-yard drive. Berezik rushed for 21 yards, while Iciek hit WR Blake Smolen with a pass for 16 yards and Koster for 13 yards before the winning play. The GVSU defense then stepped up and held Ferris State to just four yards on five plays in the closing minutes to secure the win. Berezik was the workhorse for the Lakers, toting the ball a season-high 29 times for a season-high 178 yards. P.T. Gates added 50 yards on nine carries.

Houghton, mich. - No. 1 ranked Grand Valley State cruised to a 55-7 GLIAC road win at Michigan Tech Saturday (Sept. 26) night. The Lakers jumped out to a 21-0 lead and never looked back in the first-ever night game at Michigan Tech. The Lakers started fast as Blake Smolen took the opening kickoff 71 yards to the Michigan Tech 10 yard line. The 71-yard return moved Smolen past the career 1,000-yard kickoff return mark and put him in the record books as the first Laker with more than 1,000 yards in rushing, receiving and kickoff returns. In addtion, Smolen is just the fourth player in DII football history to accomplish the feat in those categories. RB James Berezik scored two plays later and the Lakers led 7-0 after Justin Trumbles PAT. Senior QB Brad Iciek drove the Lakers 87 yards in nine plays and hit WR Mike Koster with a 10 yard TD pass to up the lead to 14-0. GVSU upped its lead to 21-0 after Iciek hit WR Ryan Bass with a 26 yard TD pass one play after SS Zach Breen picked off a Michigan Tech pass. "I wanted to start fast and we did just that with Blake's (Smolen) return and then a nice drive followed by a quick strike TD," said GVSU head coach Chuck Martin. "We were efficient on offense for the most part and our running game got into gear with Jimmy (Berezik), P.T. (Gates) and Justin (Sherrod)," added Martin. Following a Michigan Tech score, Iciek hit Bass with a screen pass that covered 33 yards and concluded a five-play, 60-yard drive. GVSU used the running game to move 48 yards in six plays as RB P.T. Gates scored from a yard out to up the Laker lead to 35-7. Sophomore defensive end Blair Hollis then put the finishing touches on a dominating first half when he returned a fumble 20 yards for a touchdown. GVSU led 41-7 at the break. The Laker reserves finished the second quarter and played the entire second half. Justin Sherrod scored on a 40 yard run in the third quarter and WR Carlos Clark closed the scoring with a one-yard TD run in the fourth quarter. "It was a good win," said Martin. "Michigan Tech was playing a little short handed without Short (Steve) and Milbrath (Phil), but I was pleased we came out with intensity and made the plays we needed to make," added Martin. Grand Valley State rushed for a season-high 311 yards on 43 carries, including a career-high 108 yards on 10 carries from senior P.T. Gates. Sherrod rushed for 95 yards on 12 carries and Berezik toted the ball 11 times for 80 yards. Iciek completed 6-of-9 passes for 107 yards and three TD, while reserve Marquel Neasman hit on 5-of-8 for 78 yards. Koster caught three passes for 33 yards and one TD, while Bass hauled in two passes for 59 yards and two TDs. Israel Woolfork caught two passes for 54 yards, including a career-long reception of 41 yards. The Laker defense tallied nine tackles for loss and four QB sacks, led by Ricky Shorkey's eight tackles, 2.5 TFL (-14) and one QB sack (11). Gary Anderson led the defense in total tackles with nine. The Laker defense forced four Michigan Tech turnovers and limited the Huskies to 294 yards of total offense.

Game 8 October 17, 2009

Allendale, mich. - No. 8 Grand Valley State claimed a 38-13 GLIAC victory over No. 18 Findlay Saturday night (Oct. 17) before a homecoming crowd of 11,428 in Lubbers Stadium. GVSU improved to 7-1 overall and 6-1 in GLIAC action, while Findlay falls to 6-2 overall and 5-2 in GLIAC action. When kickoff arrived Saturday night first place in the GLIAC was on the line as both teams entered with 5-1 league ledgers. GVSU, which has now won 10 straight over the Oilers, stopped the Oilers on a downs in their opening possession of the game at the Lakers' 28 yard line. The GVSU offense got going early with an 11-play, 75-yard drive that took 5:50 off the clock. The Lakers converted three third downs and senior QB Brad Iciek hit senior WR Blake Smolen with a 20-yard pass and catch for a TD. Senior PK Justin Trumble added the PAT for a 7-0 Laker lead. The GVSU forced a three and out and drove 60 yards in nine plays, but junior RB James Berezik was stopped on a fourth-and-one play from the one. Senior RB P.T. Gates returned a Findlay punt 19 yards on a spectacular return in which he broke five tackles. The Lakers moved 53 yards in five plays for a Smolen two yard TD run. Iciek hit Berezik with a 27 yard pass to the UF two to set up the score. The GVSU defense then struck as sophomore Zach Breen forced a fumble that Jake McGuckin picked up and returned 18 yards to the Findlay 14 yard line. Gates concluded the drive with a one yard TD run and Trumble added his third PAT of the game for a 21-0 GVSU lead. Findlay was able to get on the board when QB Andrew Beam hit Mike Chambers with a 59 yard TD pass following a fourth down conversion. GVSU moved 33 yards in nine plays for a career-long field goal by Trumble to give GVSU a 24-7 lead at the half. Grand Valley State took the second half kickoff and drove 59 yards in six plays for a TD. Gates moved the Lakers into scoring position with a 43 yard rush to the Findlay four and Iciek finished the drive with a one yard TD run and Trumble added the PAT for a 31-7 GVSU lead. The GVSU remained solid forcing two three and outs for the UF offense. Late in the third quarter Berezik notched a 28 yard rush and Iciek hit Smolen for 15 yards to the Oiler three. Iciek concluded the drive with his second rushing TD of the quarter and Trumble added the PAT for a 38-7 GVSU lead.

Ashland, Ohio - No. 6 Grand Valley State claimed an impressive 34-7 GLIAC road win at Ashland Saturday (Oct. 24) afternoon. GVSU improves to 8-1 overall and 7-1 in GLIAC action with the win. The Laker defense forced a turnover on the second offensive play of the game when Danny Richard sacked Ashland QB Billy Cundiff and forced a fumble in the process that LB Brad Howard recovered. QB Brad Iciek hit Greg Gay for a gain of 19 on a third-and-15 and P.T. Gate followed with two running plays for 15 yards to the Ashland five. However, three straight incompletions forced a 22-yard field goal by Justin Trumble to give the Lakers a 3-0 lead. Following an Ashland drive that covered just 33 yards, Iciek was back on the field directing the Laker offense. Ashland was called for pass interference that moved the ball to the AU 49, followed by an 8-yard completion from Iciek to Smolen. RB James Berezik carried the ball three times for 15 yards and Iciek then hit sophomore Greg Gay with a 25-yard TD pass and after the PAT GVSU led 10-0. "It was nice to get that opening turnover and score first," said GVSU head coach Chuck Martin. "Our defense then just dominated play for the rest of the first half." The Laker defense forced another three-and-out and put the GVSU offense back on the field. Iciek directed a 13-play, 73-yard scoring drive that concluded with an Iciek to Carlos Clark 10-yard TD pass and took 7:19 off the clock. Trumble added the PAT for a 17-0 GVSU lead. The Laker defense limited the high-powered Ashland offense to just 90 yards on 22 plays in the first 30 minutes. In addition, the Laker offense held onto the ball for 19:48 of the first half. GVSU opened the second half on offense and took full advantage quickly. Following a 31-yard kickoff return, Berezik carried the ball twice for six yards and Iciek then hit Blake Smolen with a 54-yard TD pass. GVSU held a 24-0 lead following the Trumble PAT. "I felt it was important to score our first possession of the second half and when Brad (Iciek) hit Blake (Smolen) with that scoring pass you could see that it took the air out of Ashland," said Martin. Ashland gained just seven yards on three plays and was forced to punt on its opening drive. Following a 29-yard punt GVSU took over on the 50 yard line. P.T. Gates gained 35 yards on two carries, but the drive then stalled and Trumble connected on a 37-yard field goal to up the Laker lead to 27-0. Grand Valley State put the finishing touches on a dominating performance with a 9-play, 55-yard scoring drive early in the fourth quarter. Gates ran the ball six times for 45 yards, Berezik twice for eight yards and Smolen once for two yards. Gates finished the drive with a 10-yard run and Trumble added the PAT for a 34-0 GVSU lead. Ashland drove 71 yards in eight plays versus the Laker second defense for its only points of the game. GVSU ran the final 4:45 off the clock as Justin Sherrod gained 24 yards on five carries. The Grand Valley State starting defense limited Ashland to just 156 total yards and tallied a season-high six QB sacks. Danny Richard and Ricky Shorkey each tallied two QB sacks, while Jacob McGuckin led the defense with 10 tackles. Ashland entered the game averaging 282.1 yards per game passing, but was limited to just 49 passing yards on 9-of-13. The Laker offense also held onto the ball for 36:37 and converted a season-best 12-of-18 third down conversions. Ashland was 3-for-10 on third down and 0-4 on fourth down. Iciek completed 11-of-20 passes for 146 yards and three TDs, while Gates led the rushing game with 95 yards on 10 carries. Berezik toted the ball 18 times for 57 yards. Gay caught a season-high four passes for 51 yards and a TD, while Smolen caught two passes for 62 yards and a TD.

Allendale, mich. - No. 5 Grand Valley State used a dominating running game en route to a 31-19 victory over Northern Michigan on Halloween night at Lubbers Stadium. The Lakers, 9-1 overall and 8-1 in GLIAC action, have clinched at least a tie for the 2009 GLIAC title. The Lakers scored early and often in the first quarter. Following a Northern Michigan punt, senior QB Brad Iciek directed a 5-play, 80-yard scoring drive that took just 2:10 off the clock. Iciek hit TE Andrew Lorman with a 26 yard pass and catch, followed by a 30 yard run by junior RB James Berezik. Iciek hit senior WR Blake Smolen with a 17 yard TD pass and Trumble added the PAT for a 7-0 GVSU lead. The points marked the ninth time in 10 games that the Lakers have scored points on their opening offensive drive of the game. Grand Valley State forced another three-and-out and the offense went back to work. Senior RB P.T. Gates finished off the 8-play, 76-yard drive with a 24 yard TD run at the 5:53 mark of the first quarter. GVSU closed the first quarter with a 9-play, 34-yard drive that concluded with a Trumble 25 yard field goal. GVSU held onto the ball for 10:04 of the first quarter and notched 121 yards of total offense. Northern Michigan moved into GVSU territory on its opening drive of the second quarter and had the ball on the Laker 25 yard line. However, three NMU penalties, an incomplete pass and a rush of minus two yards put the Wildcats in a third and 32 situation from the 47 yard line. Following another NMU punt GVSU drove 67 yards in 12 plays before the drive stalled at the Northern Michigan 12 yard line. Trumble booted a 29 yard field goal to give the Lakers a 20-0 lead with 4:44 left in the half. NMU drove 71 yards in eight plays for a TD, but junior DL Danny Richard blocked the PAT that Justin Victor picked up and returned 90 yards for a defensive safety to give the Lakers a 22-6 lead "I felt like we left some points on the field in the first half, but we moved the ball well," said head coach Chuck Martin. GVSU churned out 271 yards of total offense in the opening half, including 176 on the ground. The GVSU defense limited NMU to just 95 yards of total offense. Grand Valley State dominated the second half statistically, but turned the ball over three times. Iciek directed an 11-play, 73 yard drive deep in NMU territory on the Lakers' opening drive, but was intercepted for the first time in 2009 to thwart the drive. Following a second Iciek interception at the NMU 48 yard line, the Wildcats drove 52 yards in 12 plays for a TD, but the two-point attempt failed. Berezik answered the NMU TD with a 49 yard rush on the opening play of the Lakers' next drive. The Lakers drove inside the NMU one, but were forced to kick a field goal. Trumble hit his third field goal of the night to conclude an 8-play, 72 yard drive. "We just didn't do a good job converting red zone opportunities into touchdowns," Said Martin. "It was a combination of execution and play call, but we need to do a better job of getting touchdowns instead of field goals." The GVSU defense stiffened and forced a punt, however, a first down fumble was turned into an NMU touchdown. GVSU's lead was down to six (2519) following the PAT. Grand Valley State's offense took control of the game with a 10-play, 62-yard TD drive, with nine of the 10 plays coming via the rush. Berezik carried the ball four times for 22 yards, while P.T. Gates added 29 yards on four carries and Iciek finished the drive with an 8-yard TD run. GVSU tallied 507 yards of total offense, including a season-high 356 rushing yards. The Lakers ran 74 plays to the Wildcats 46 plays and held onto the ball for 38:43. James Berezik rushed for a season-high 213 yards on 26 carries, while P.T. Gates added 106 yards on 18 carries. Iciek completed 10-of-18 passes for 151 yards and one TD. WR Blake Smolen caught three passes for 53 yards, while Berezik hauled in three catches for 41 yards. Lorman also pulled in two receptions for 41 yards. Sophomore LB Brad Howard led the defense with nine tackles, while Danny Richard tallied four tackles, two tackles for loss (-15) and two QB sacks (-15).

Allendale, mich. - #5 Grand Valley State used a balanced attack and a stingy starting defense en route to a 59-28 victory over Wayne State Saturday afternoon at Lubbers Stadium in the regular season finale. GVSU (10-1, 9-1 GLIAC) claimed its fifth straight GLIAC Championship and 15th in the programs history with the win. The Laker defense put points on the board first as freshman linebacker Ricky Shorkey picked off a deflected pass and returned it 16 yards for a TD. Senior PK Justin Trumble added the PAT for a 7-0 GVSU lead. Trumble put the Lakers up 10-0 with a 25yard field goal that culminated a 10-play, 70-yard drive. The GVSU defense forced another turnover as junior LB Justin Victor picked off a Mickey Mohner pass and returned it to the Wayne State 41. Junior RB James Berezik put the finishing touches on a 3-play, 41-yard drive with a two-yard scored and Trumble kicked the PAT for a 17-0 lead with :57 ticks left in the first quarter. Senior QB Brad Iciek hit senior WR Blake Smolen with a 16 yard scoring pass to finish off a 6-play, 52-yard scoring drive. Wayne State scored its only points of the first half as QB Mickey Mohner hit Troy Burrell with a 45-yard scoring pass with 3:40 left in the second quarter, but Smolen put the Laker offense in great field position with a 51-yard kickoff return to the WSU 44 yard line. Iciek hit Berezik with a 14 yard completion and Greg Gay with a six-yard pass before hitting Justin Sherrod with a 24 yard TD pass to give GVSU a 31-7 halftime lead. Junior DL Danny Richard blocked a Wayne State field goal attempt at the end of the first half. Wayne State recovered an onside kick to open the second half and moved the ball into GVSU territory, however, the Laker defense held on fourth down to get the ball back. Iciek directed a 13-play, 86-yard scoring drive and scored on a 13 yard run to give GVSU a 38-7 lead. GVSU upped its lead to 45-7 with a Sherrod one-yard TD run. Justin set up the score with a 76 yard run to the Wayne State eight yard line. Sherrod added his fourth TD of the game following a Warrior score. Sherrod accounted for all 60 rushing yards on the drive, finished by his 15 yard TD run. WSU added another another score against the Laker second unit, but the Laker second team offense scored third TD of the quarter with a 6-play, 64-yard drive. Sherrod carried the ball for 48 yards and Marquel Neasman hit Carlos Clark for a 16 yard gain. Sherrod finished the drive with his third rushing TD of the quarter, this one coming from four yards out to give GVSU a 59-21 lead.

Junior WR Ryan Bass caught four passes for 64 yards, while TE Andrew Lorman caught three passes for 35 yards. The Laker starting defense was sensational, limiting the nations leading rusher, Joique Bell, to just 74 yards on 19 carries. When the starting defense left the game for GVSU Bell had 13 carries for 20 yards. Bell was held under the 100-yard rushing mark for the first time during the 2009 season and the first time in the last 13 games.

Game 12 November 21, 2009

Allendale, mich. - It took Grand Valley State less than one half of football to punch its ticket to the NCAA Super Region 3 Championship game for the ninth straight year Saturday afternoon. The Lakers built a 37-0 halftime lead and cruised to a 44-27 victory over Hillsdale College in NCAA DII Playoff action before a GVSU playoff record crowd of 8,229 at Lubbers Stadium. GVSU took the opening kickoff and scored on its first offensive possession of the game for the 10th time this season. Senior RB P.T. Gates finished the 5-play, 75-yard drive with a 52-yard scoring run and senior PK Justin Trumble added the PAT for a 7-0 GVSU lead. Hillsdale drove inside the Laker redzone on its opening drive, but junior DT Nick Lawrence blocked Mark Petro's 32-yard field goal attempt. GVSU drove 76 yards in 13 plays and Trumble kicked a 25-yard field goal to give the Lakers a 10-0 lead. After trading punts the Laker offense struck quickly again. Senior QB Brad Iciek hit WR Blake Smolen with a 44 yard pass and junior RB James Berezik finished the drive with a 9-yard run and a 10-yard scoring scamper. GVSU led 16-0 after the PAT was blocked. "We were able to jump on them early and our defense did a great job of making plays and giving the ball back to our offense," said GVSU head coach Chuck Martin. Enrique Shaw picked off a Troy Weatherhead pass and returned it 32 yards to the Hillsdale 31 yard line. Berezik rushed for five yards, followed by 7yard carry by Smolen. Iciek hit Berezik with a 3-yard pass completion and a 15-yard personal foul on the Chargers put the ball on the Hillsdale eight yard line. Iciek hit junior WR Ryan Bass with an 8-yard scoring pass to give the Lakers a 23-0 lead with 8:30 left in the second quarter. Junior DT Danny Richard tallied the Lakers' second block of the day when he blocked Petro's 44-yard field goal attempt midway through the second quarter. GVSU wasted little time as Iciek hit sophomore WR Greg Gay with a 39-yard completion to the Hillsdale 34 yard line. Berezik lost four yards and Smolen gained nine yards to put the Lakers in a third-and-five situation. Iciek found Gay again, this time behind the Charger DB's to complete a 29-yard TD pass. Trumble's PAT gave GVSU a 30-0 lead. GVSU senior LB Jordan Munson recoved a fumble by Hillsdale's Nick Hixson on the ensuing kickoff to set up the Laker offense one more time. Iciek hit Smolen for 16 yards and Smolen then carried the ball for 11 yards to the Hillsdale nine. Smolen became just the fifth player in NCAA football history to rush for over 2,000 yards and have over 2,000 receiving yards on the carry. Iciek then hit Bass with a 9-yard TD pass with :42 ticks left in the first half to give GVSU a 37-0 halftime lead. The Lakers scored 27 second quarter points and rolled up 356 first half yards (164 rushing/168 passing). Hillsdale managed just 143 yards of total offense in the first half, including just 20 rushing yards on 10 attempts. "We were able to get stops defensively and force turnovers in the first half, then we turned those turnovers and blocked kicks into points," said Martin. The GVSU starting offense did not play in the second half and the Laker defense played just one series. Hillsdale scored on its opening possession in the second half to cut the Laker lead to 37-6. Petro then had his third kick of the game blocked. GVSU drove 51 yards in six plays, all on the ground, to up its lead to 44-6. Junior RB Justin Sherrod toted the ball for 42 yards on four carries, while junior QB Marquel Neasman rushed for nine yards, including the final three yards for a TD at the 4:12 mark of the third quarter. The Hillsdale starting offense proved to be too much for the GVSU second and third team defense to handle, scoring the final 21 points of the game. Hillsdale's second offensive unit never set foot on the field and the Charger second defense played the final 14 seconds when GVSU took a knee to end the game. Sherrod led the GVSU round game with 82 yards on 10 carries, while Berezik added 69 yards and a TD on 10 carries and Gates 68 yards and a TD on four carries. Smolen chipped in 27 yards on three rushes. Iciek completed 11-of-17 passes for 192 yards and three TDs. Smolen led the receiving untit with 76 yards on four catches, while Bass hauled in three receptions for 35 yards and two TDs. Gay caught two passes for 68 yards and a TD. Junior LB Justin Victor led the defense with eight total tackles, while freshman CB Chris Crawford added seven stops. Senior LB Gary Anderson chipped in seven stops, while senior safety Jake McGuckin added six tackles and three pass break ups.

Duluth, minn. - Grand Valley State used a stellar defensive effort and an opportunistic offense en route to a 24-10 NCAA DII Quarterfinal playoff win at the University of Minnesota-Duluth Saturday (Nov. 28) before a crowd of 4,211. The game didn't exactly start the way GVSU head coach Chuck Martin envisioned. UMD's Harlon Hill candidate, Isaac Odim, returned the opening kickoff 91 yards for a TD. "I wanted the ball to start the game, but I wasn't looking for Isaac Odim to run the kickoff back," stated Martin. Grand Valley State answered quickly with a seven-play, 75-yard scoring drive of its own. Senior QB Brad Iciek hit junior WR Ryan Bass with a 23 yard TD pass at the 7:27 mark of the first quarter. Senior PK Justin Trumble added the PAT for a 7-7 tie. "We moved the ball on our first drive and missed Blake Smolen, but it was nice to even the game at that point because we felt like we could move the ball offensively," added Martin. The Laker defense then picked off the first of four passes on UMD's next possession. Junior DL Nick Lawrence tipped a pass that junior LB Justin Victor intercepted and returned 33 yards to the Bulldog three yard line. Senior RB P.T. Gates scored on a one yard run to give the Lakers a 14-7 lead. Odim went back to work and returned the ensuing kickoff 54 yards to the GVSU 24 yard line. However, the Laker defense held and forced a 34 yard field goal by David Nadeau. "We gave up 10 points in that first quarter all on kickoff coverage," said Martin. The Laker offense drove 69 yards in 14 plays on its next possession as Trumble kicked a 30 yard field goal to up the GVSU lead to 17-10 with 11:14 left in the second quarter. The GVSU defense came with several big defensive stops in the second quarter and the Lakers held a 17-10 halftime lead. "I felt great about the way our defense was playing in the first half and we probably should have been up by more than our 17-10 lead," added Martin. GVSU took the opening kickoff of the second half and drove inside Bulldog territory, but Trumble was short on a 41 yard field goal. The Laker defense was the story of the second half as Minnesota-Duluth was stopped twice on downs and three times on interceptions. "Our defense made the plays when they were there to be made," said Martin. "We kept stressing play the next play and in the end they made the final play." Minnesota Duluth drove inside the Laker 50 yard line, but GVSU's Brad Howard picked off a Vogler pass and returned it 43 yards to the UMD 32 yard line. Iciek then hit sophomore WR Greg Gay with a 32 yards TD pass on the first play and Trumble added the PAT for a 24-10 Grand Valley State lead midway through the third quarter. The Bulldogs then drove inside the Laker 20 yard line on its ensuing drive behind a couple of big plays from UMD receiver D.J. Winfield. However, Dominique Darden picked off a Vogler pass at the GVSU nine yard line and returned it to the Laker 22 yard line to thwart another drive.

Florence, Ala. - Northwest Missouri State jumped out to a 21-0 first half lead and held on for a 30-23 victory over Grand Valley State. The title game appearance was the Lakers' sixth since 2001. GVSU finished the season with a 13-2 record. Northwest Missouri State started fast with touchdowns on their first three drives of the game. LaRon Council finished the Bearcats opening drive with a 14 yard TD run to cap a 6-play, 76-yard drive that took just 1:53 off the clock. GVSU then drove into Bearcat territory on its second drive of the game and faced a fourth-and-three from the NMSU 35-yard line. However, head coach Chuck Martin elected to punt and senior Justin Trumble pinned NW Missouri State on its own three-yard line. Northwest Missouri State drove 97 yards in 16 plays as QB Blake Bolles finished the drive with a four yard TD run. Following a three-and-out by the Lakers, NMSU Jordan Simmons took a Justin Trumble punt back 48 yards to the Grand Valley State 17 yard line. Council followed with a 17 yard TD run to up the Northwest Missouri State lead to 21-0. NW Missouri State was driving again late in the first half and had the ball on the GVSU one yard line, but senior LB James Wojciechowski forced and recovered a Previn Perry fumble to thwart the scoring opportunity. Grand Valley State senior LB Gary Anderson provided the spark to open the second half when he picked off a Blake Bolles pass on the Bearcats fouth play of the third quarter. Iciek then drove the Lakers 48 yards in four plays and hit sophomore tight end Andrew Lorman with an eight yard TD pass with 11:22 left in the third quarter to get the Lakers on the scoreboard. Iciek hit junior WR Ryan Bass with a 16 yard completion and P.T. Gates rushed for 11 yards followed by a NMSU personal foul before the TD pass to Lorman. The excitement was short lived as Jay Jandasek's PAT was blocked and returned for a defensive safety for the Bearcats by Ryan Jones. Jones taunted the Laker defenders for the final 30 yards and ran the final seven yards backwards, but no penalty was called. The Lakers and Bearcats traded punts, including an NCAA DII Championship record 71 yard punt by GVSU's Jay Jandasek, who was replacing the injured Trumble. The GVSU defense continued to hold the Bearcat offense and forced a punt deep in their own territory. The Michael Stadler punt was downed at the 50 yard line to set the Laker offense up with outstanding field position. WR Blake Smolen ran 11 yards on a reverse and Iciek then hit WR Ryan Bass with a 33 yard TD pass and Jandasek added the PAT to cut the Northwest Missouri State lead to 10 (23-13). Grand Valley State's defense forced another turnover when CB Chris Crawford, playing for the injured Enrique Shaw, forced a fumble on the GVSU 29 yard line. Iciek directed an 11-play, 71-yard scoring drive that finished with a two yard TD run by Smolen. Jandasek added the PAT and the Lakers clawed back to within three points (23-20) with 12:26 left in the game. The Lakers were flagged with a personal foul on the ensuing kickoff and the Bearcats took over on GVSU 32 yard line. Bolles completed an 18 yard pass to Council on a third and 22 play, then hit Jake Soy with a 26 yard TD pass on a fourth and five play to up the lead to 10 points (30-20) with 10:00 left in the game. GVSU continued to battle and drove 70 yards in 12 plays for a 21 yard field goal by Jandasek. The big play on the drive came when Iciek hit freshman Israel Woolfork with a 35-yard pass and catch to the Bearcat 12 yard line on third and 10. Trailing 30-23, GVSU opted for an onside kick and thought they had recovered the ball, but an illegal touching call negated the recovery and NMSU took over on the GVSU 39 yard line. The GVSU defense held and forced a Bearcat punt that went into the end zone to give the Lakers one last drive starting from their own 20 yard line with 2:59 remaining. Grand Valley State drove 24 yards in nine plays, but Iciek's fourth down pass was incomplete with :52 seconds left to seal the win for Northwest Missouri State. Iciek completed a career-high 28 passes for 290 yards and two TDs for the Lakers. Bass caught eight passes for 111 yards and a TD, while Smolen rushed for 45 yards on seven carries and hauled in six passes for 70 yards. Smolen tallied 189 all-purpose yards for the game.

LUBBERS STADIUM


LUBBERS STADIUM

The Grand Valley State football team enjoys the friendly confines of Arend D. Lubbers Stadium, one of the top Division II facilities in the nation. Gameday at Lubbers Stadium brings a buzz of excitment and pride to the Laker football program. The surroundings of Lubbers Stadium have changed almost yearly and add to the festivities that surround a Laker football Saturday during the fall. Most recently, a new Daktronics Scoreboard with a ProStar Video Display board was added for the 2005 season. Two seating sections were added to each end of the home side and a new student section was built to accomadate the stellar student turnout for Laker football games in 2004. The Lakers have moved all of their football operations into the GVSU Football Center and the Rob Odejewski Weight Room in 2002. The Football Center includes a stateof-the-art locker room, equipment room, the Todd Jager training room and meeting rooms. The design doubled the size of the former building in the north end zone by adding over 4,000 square feet (2,000 sqaure feet on each side). Permanent lighting, a new playing surface, and six executive suites located on each side of the press box are additions added in the last four years. The student seating area, which moved to south endzone in 1998, has created renewed excitment among the student body. The student seating section has doubled in capacity from 1,300 to 2,700 with the new bleachers. The Laker student seating section is routinely filled to capacity with the overflow moving onto the track.

LUBBERS STADIUM With the increased seating in the south end zone and the two new sections on the home side, Lubbers Stadium now has a permanent seating capacity for 8,550 fans. The Lakers set a Lubbers Stadium and GLIAC single-game oncampus record in 2009 as 16,467 fans watched Grand Valley State claim a 38-7 victory over Saginaw Valley State. GVSU set a GLIAC single-season attendance record in 2008 as 64,511 fans watched five Laker home games at Lubbers Stadium for an average of 12,902 per game. The Lakers ranked second in total attendance (73,639) and regular season average (12,902) among DII schools for the season. Three of the Lakers’ top seven all-time single-game crowds and four of the top 12 came during the 2008 regular season. GVSU played before crowds of 14,612 (Ferris State), 14,161 (Hillsdale), 13,302 (Indianapolis), 12,405 (Michigan Tech) and 10,132 (Ashland) in five regular season dates. Grand Valley State has recorded sellouts in 26-ofthe-last-29 regular season games since 2004 and 37-of-40 since 2002. Designed with the future in mind, the stadium can have permanent seating added when needed, with ultimate expansion to 20,000 seats. A new track was also installed in the summer of 1998. The stadium and track complex was dedicated on September 15, 1979, and named in honor of former Grand Valley State president, Arend D. Lubbers. Lubbers was instrumental in raising more than $700,000 toward the $1,050,000 project. The majority of the cost was offset by gifts from GVSU football fans and private donors. Lubbers Stadium was built around the existing football field of Prescription Athletic Turf (PAT). The field, which is drained and heated by more than seven miles of tubing and electric coils, was installed in 1972, and opened in 1973. A new automatic sprinkler system was also installed in the summer of 1998. The Lubbers Stadium press box was designed to accomodate both print and electronic media representatives.

STORIED TRADITION Grand Valley State was one of only a handful of colleges and universities which began playing football in the 1970’s. According to NCAA records, the Lakers have been one of the most successful of all collegiate squads to take the field during that time period. Laker football has been a key element of Grand Valley’s rise from a small college to a regional university. President Arend D. Lubbers began the push for a team when he arrived in 1969. A year later, a Laker junior varsity team took the field. Then, in the fall of 1971, the Lakers kicked off their first varsity season. “It was clear that Grand Valley was changing from a commuter college, to a residential school in need of activities such as music, drama, and athletics,” Lubbers recalled. “Football gave us the anchor, something you could build your weekend around.” The Origin of the Program Lubbers came to Grand Valley from Central College in Pella, Iowa, which had a successful football tradition. He hired Zeeland native Ron Schipper, who had been at Central for 33 years, played in three national finals, and won one national championship. “I was used to success at Central College, so when we started at Grand Valley, I wanted to have a successful program instead of throwing the ball out and saying, ‘O.K. boys, it doesn’t matter whether we win or not.’” But despite Lubbers’ success at Central College, it took almost nine years before Grand Valley had the total package.

The First Varsity Team With blessing from the Board of Control, GV launched its football program to play a junior varsity schedule in 1970 and became varsity in 1971. On March 24, 1970, Lubbers, along with athletic director Charles H. Irwin, announced the hiring of Robert “Rip” Collins, a successful high school coach at Grand Rapids Ottawa Hills. Success didn’t come quickly for the Lakers, and it took almost three years to win a football game. Collins was unable to get the program off to a successful start after going 0-13 and being outscored 534-58 in 1971 and 1972. Harkema Begins the Tradition E. James Harkema took over as head coach in January of 1973, coming to GV from Northern Illinois where he was an offensive backfield coach.

Also awaiting Harkema was a brand new football field constructed in 1972 which featured the first “prescription athletic turf” (PAT) football playing surface in the country. It was ironic that Harkema opened the 1973 campaign against his alma mater Kalamazoo College, where he won 10 varsity letters and led the Hornets to six MIAA championships. John Mahan rushed 26 times for 158 yards and Steve Brems added 122 more to lead GV to its first football victory in its season opener at home, a 27-14 win over Kalamazoo. Defensive tackle Bryce Berth and offensive guard Tom Tefft were named the offensive and defensive players of the game. To prove it was not fluke, the Lakers did it again the following week with Mahan rushing for 147 yards and Brems adding 138 as GV defeated Chicago Circle 40-8 in a night game played at Soldier Field in Chicago. Grand Valley outscored opponents 259-120 and posted their first winning season. 1973 marked the start of the great football tradition at Grand Valley, and during the next 10 years under Harkema they would post a 68-29-1 record, win three Great Lakes Conference football championships and make one trip to the NAIA playoffs. Also during that period, a number of Lakers would begin careers in professional football. Jim Schaap and Tom Tefft, 1971-73, were the first Lakers to sign professional football contracts when they signed with the Detroit Wheels of the World Football League in 1974, setting the stage for a number of GV football alums to follow into the National Football League during that period. They include Gary Evans 1975-77 (New York Jets), Ron Essink 1976-79 (Seattle Seahawks), Ron Rubick 1978-81 (Detroit Lions), Steve Michuta 1979-81 (Cleveland Browns), and Jeff Chadwick 1980-82 (Detroit Lions). Many Laker followers feel that the 1975 team, with a 7-2-1 record, may have set the standards for many years to come. After dropping a hard fought 15-6 contest to Wayne State, which also included the loss of their quarterback Scott VanDyken for the season, the Lakers bounced back to shutout Ferris State, 38-0, for their first win over the Bulldogs, defeat Saginaw Valley and Hillsdale, tie Northwood, and lose on a trick play to Northern Michigan, 2117. 1976 was the year Grand Valley would receive national attention in more ways than one. It all started at Michigan Tech when Roger McCoy was credited with a 39-yard field goal although the ball never cleared the crossbar. Instead, the ball hit a public address wire some 50 feet in the air and the ball dropped straight down in front of the goal posts. A lengthy deliberation following was dominated by Michigan Tech coach Jim Kapp, who brought the ground rule to the attention of the officials, that if that ball should hit the wire in flight, the down should be replayed. Kapp’s appeal was denied on the basis that he forgot to tell Grand Valley or the officials before the start of the game that the rule existed, and because the field goal was allowed, the Lakers walked away with a 10-8 victory. McCoy had set a GVSU record with a 60-yard field goal the previous week against Grand Rapids JC at Houseman Field. The Lakers get on the map The game which put Grand Valley on the map was the season finale against Northern Michigan. The Wildcats came into Allendale as defending champions, boasting an 18-game winning streak, ranked No. 1 in Division II and fresh off an 82-7 whipping of Nebraska-Omaha.

STORIED TRADITION ABC television sent a crew to feature Northern Michigan, but it was the Lakers, playing 21 seniors who built up a 24-0 lead and went on to shock the Wildcats 31-14 before the then largest crowd in GV history at the time. Reflections of that game even hit the state legislature, when the Representative Dominic Jacobetti of Neguanee vowed he would eat a pasties’ box if Northern were to lose. Although humbled, Jacobetti was true to his word, and ate a piece of cake looking like a pasties’ box that was furnished by Grand Valley president Don Lubbers. Grand Valley Dominates the GLIAC Harkema’s teams had traditionally been built around defense and a solid running game. In 1977 he decided to go to the air and with senior quarterback Roy Gonzalez at the helm, a transfer from Toledo, the Lakers took to the air and won the first of three Great Lakes Conference Championships in a five year period. Gonzalez was followed by quarterbacks David Quinley, Steve Michuta, and Jeff Lynch, who gave GV the most feared passing in the GLIAC. They were also blessed with outstanding receivers in Clint Nash, Michael Woods, Rubick Chadwick, and Bill Lucksted as the Lakers averaged seven wins a year from 1977-82. Argument still exists over Harkema’s most successful team. The 1976 club, despite an 8-2 record, and posting the biggest victory in the school’s history, finished second in the GLIAC and missed the NAIA playoffs. The First Playoff Year In 1978 with Quinley at the controls, the Lakers suffered early 49-22 and 49-3 losses to Northern Michigan and Bowling Green, but bounced back to win eight straight games including a repeat of the GLIAC title and an NCAA playoff victory over WisconsinLaCrosse. The team lost at Elon (NC) College 14-7 in the semifinals of the NAIA playoffs and closed out with a 9-3 record, the most wins in GV history at the time. The 1981 season was similar to 1978 when the Lakers lost 21-20 to Northern Iowa and 29-28 to Northern Michigan, but bounced back to dominate the GLIAC and win their third title despite a rash of injuries which devastated the club. The Lakers earn a New Stadium The Grand Valley football package was completed when the stadium and track complex named after its president, Arend D. Lubbers, was dedicated on September 15, 1979. The majority of these gifts included contributions from Laker football fans and private donors. The stadium was built around the existing PAT field with permanent seating for 4,146 fans. Beside the stadium/track complex, the new practice fields and the new Fieldhouse, which replaced the Dome in 1982, gave GV one of the finest Division II facilities in the Midwest. Harkema was on his way to building another winner when he accepted the head coaching job at Eastern Michigan. He resigned in November 1982 and was replaced by Bob Giesey, Ball State assistant, in December of 1982. Giesey’s team lost the final two games of the season by two points, 31-30 to Northwood and 15-14 to Saginaw Valley to finish 4-6. The roof caved in the following year and GV went 0-10 and managed only 99 points for the season.

Beck Turns GVSU into a Winner Again Giesey resigned and Athletic Director Dr. George MacDonald began a nationwide search which climaxed with the hiring of Tom Beck, a Chicago native, who came to Grand Valley from the Chicago Blitz of the United States Football League and who had turned losing programs into winning ones at Illinois Benedictine and Elmhurst College. It took Beck three games to get back on track in 1985. Faced with a 14-game losing streak, Beck made some key personnel changes. Beck installed Guy Schuler at quarterback and moved wide receiver Ray Buckner to tailback, linebacker Sylvester Johnson to fullback, and defensive tackle Brian Mulcahy to middle linebacker. The Lakers went out and defeated Evansville 28-14 and finished the year 6-5. The next five years would see explosive offenses, outstanding players and solid coaching which would result in trips to the NCAA Division II playoffs, as well as the Lakers becoming a fixture in preseason and postseason rankings. Beck’s 1986 team posted a 9-2 record, but that was only an inkling of this to come. Undefeated in 1989 After a pair of 7-4 seasons in 1987 and 1988, the Lakers posted their first undefeated regular season with an 11-0 record and the final Great Lakes Conference Championship in 1989. GV led Division II in total offense, averaging 480.9 yards per game and also in points with 44.5. One of the highlights of the 1989 season was GVSU’s record breaking 91-0 victory over Valparaiso. The Lakers jumped out to a 56-0 halftime lead as they rolled up 731 yards in total offense. Freshman kicker Miguel Sagaro from Spain set a Division II record when he connected on 65 of 66 extra points for the season and sophomore fullback Eric Lynch scored 21 touchdowns. Lynch went on to begin an outstanding career with the Detroit Lions. Grand Valley finished third in the final 1989 Division II poll and earned the first of three consecutive playoff berths, losing to Indiana, PA, 34-24 on a frigid November afternoon highlighted by 11 inches of snow on the ground. Grand Valley Joins mIFC, Wins Inaugural Crown In 1990, Grand Valley, along with GLIAC members Ferris State, Hillsdale, Northern Michigan, Saginaw Valley, and Wayne State, joined forces with the schools from the Heartland Conference which included Ashland, Butler, University of Indianapolis, St. Joseph’s College, and Valparaiso to form the Midwest Intercollegiate Football Conference. The Lakers continued their winning ways, posting a 22-game regular season winning streak before falling at Hillsdale, 38-34.


STORIED TRADITION GV won the inaugural MIFC crown, finished with a 10-2 record and lost to East Texas State, 20-14, in the playoffs. kelly moves Up Beck left Grand Valley the following March to become an assistant at Notre Dame, and Athletic Director Mike Kovalchik filled the position with 28-year old Laker assistant Brian Kelly, a graduate of Assumption College, who continued to lead the Lakers to success on the gridiron. He posted his 20th and 30th wins faster than any of his predecessors, and going into the 2003 season had a 104-34-2 record in twelve seasons of competition. GV Defeats Defending National Champ, Goes To Playoffs For Third Straight Year Kelly’s first season was a roller coaster ride as the Lakers began by defeating defending Division II national champion North Dakota State, 21-17, in Fargo, breaking the Bison 25 game home winning streak as the Lakers became the first team to score a rushing TD in 38 quarters. The following week Grand Valley was shutout 33-0 in the Butler Bowl. Kelly’s 1991 team went on to post a 9-3 record, losing to East Texas State in the playoffs, 36-15. Grand Valley shared its second MIFC crown with Butler, Ferris, and Hillsdale in 1992 with an 8-3 record. Kelly’s club returned to the playoffs in 1994 and posted an 8-4 mark after losing to IUP in the first round.

kelly Continues Winning Tradition The Lakers posted back to back 8-3 seasons in ‘95 and ‘96, finishing second in the MIFC both years. GVSU earned a share of the conference title in 1997, with a 9-2 overall record, and finished the MIFC season 9-1, with only a 30-27 overtime loss at Saginaw Valley State. Quarterback Jeff Fox led the Lakers to their second straight MIFC title and back into the playoffs in 1998 with a 9-1 conference mark. Fox became Grand Valley State’s first-ever Harlon Hill Award Finalist as he rewrote the GVSU single-season and career offensive record books. The Lakers season was ended by Slippery Rock in the first round of the playoffs, 37-14. Kelly decided to go with a youth movement in 1999 and the inexperience showed as the Lakers stumbled to a 5-5 finish. The

2000 season started slowly as a tough early schedule dropped GVSU to 0-3. However, the Lakers did not quit after the rough start and responded with a six-game winning streak to end the season at 7-4. In 2001 the dividends of getting young players some vaulable experience showed as the Lakers not only won their first- ever playoff game but advanced to the 2001 National Championship. Behind an offensive attack like no Division II school before it, Grand Valley posted a perfect 10-0 regular season with an average of 58.4 points per game and 48.0 average margin of victory. GVSU’s march to the championship game was not easy, however, as quarterback and Harlon Hill Finalist Curt Anes, was injured in the Lakers’ first playoff game. Grand Valley responded with a first round 42-14 victory over Bloomsburg, a 33-30 second round win over Saginaw Valley State, and a semifinal win over Catawba College, 34-16, with two back up quarterbacks. In the championship game against North Dakota the Lakers took a 14-10 lead with 2:46 left in the game, but the Fighting Sioux responded with a last minute drive of their own to take the title, 17-14. Finish what we started was the motto of the 2002 season. Curt Anes returned from a serious knee injury to guide GVSU to a perfect 10-0 regular season mark. GVSU defeated three ranked teams en route to the undefeated season. The playoffs began with a convincing 62-13 win over C.W. Post. Then came a matchup against longtime nemesis Indiana (Pa.). GVSU entered the game 0-6 against the Indians all-time, however, scored on its first eight possessions in the first half and built a 50-7 lead. The Lakers cruised to a 62-21 win and advanced to the NCAA DII semifinals. Grand Valley State again jumped out to an early lead and never looked back with an impressive 44-7 victory over Northern Colorado. The win advanced GVSU to the NCAA DII National Championship game for the second straight year. The #1 ranked Lakers squared off against #2 Valdosta State for a winner take all game. GVSU led 17-6 at the half and 24-6 midway through the fourth quarter. However, VSU scored 18 unanswered points to tie the game with just over three minutes remaining. Anes, who won the Harlon Hill Award as the DII Player of the Year less than 24 hours earlier, drove the Lakers 68 yards in 2:05 for a TD to give GVSU the 2002 NCAA DII National Championship. Anes hit All-American David Kircus on a 10-yard pass for the winning score. Grand Valley State went wire-to-wire as the top-ranked team in Division II and finished with a perfect 14-0 record. Following “Finish What We Started” in 2002, the 2003 motto was “Tradition Never Graduates”. Gone from the 2002 team were 25 seniors that concluded their careers with back-to-back appearances in the NCAA DII Championship game. However, someone forgot to tell the the 2003 squad that the run was over. The 2003 campaign started with a road win over perennial DII power UC Davis that was now a I-AA school. GVSU limited the highpowered Aggie offense to just two field goals, while GVSU’s AllAmerican placekicker, David Hendrix, booted three field goals, the final one coming in overtime to give a young GVSU squad a 9-6 win. A resounding win over West Michigan rival Ferris State followed as the Laker defense scored a pair of TDs. Wins over Wayne State, Hillsdale, Michigan Tech and Northern Michigan built the Lakers’ overall winning streak to 20 games and the conference streak to 29 games. A date with fourth-ranked Saginaw Valley State was next on the ledger and GVSU and GLIAC record crowd of 12,832 attended the much anticipated contest at Lubbers Stadium. GVSU turnovers and miscues filled the second half and the Cardinals capitalized to claim a 34-20 victory.

STORIED TRADITION GVSU regrouped and notched a 33-14 win at Northwood to build momentum towards another playoff run. However, this playoff run would have to be done on the road as GVSU entered the playoffs seeded third in the Northeast Region. The Lakers opened with a 65-36 win at Bentley College that set up a rematch with SVSU. Scott Mackey picked off a pass late in the second quarter to score the games only TD and give GVSU a 10-3 win. A win (313) in south Texas over Texas A&M-Kingsville propelled GVSU into its third straigth NCAA DII Championship game. A familar foe, North Dakota, was on the docket in a game that was sure to be a defensive battle. GVSU led 3-0 in the third quarter, but UND was deep in Laker territory and looking to take the lead before junior defensive back Lucius Hawkins made the play of the game.

Hawkins forced a fumble by the Sioux QB that he in turn picked up and raced 59 yards to the North Dakota 20-yard line. All-American Michael Tennessee scored three plays later from three yards out to give GVSU a 10-0 lead. GVSU led 10-3 in the closing minutes as North Dakota was driving. Senior linebacker Mike Hoad would have none of that and picked off a pass on the Laker 10 to preserve the win and give GVSU back-to-back NCAA DII National Championships. The 2003 GVSU senior class etched their names in the record books by becoming just the second team (North Alabama) in NCAA DII history to make three consecutive trips to the title game. The Laker seniors were 47-2 in their final 49 games and tallied a four-year GLIAC record of 34-4. Chuck martin Takes Over The Reins Of Laker Football The 2004 season opened the era of a new mentor as Brian Kelly left following the 2003 season to take the head coach job at Central Michigan. Enter Chuck Martin as the fifth head coach in the history of the Laker football program. Martin won more games (10) than any of the four previous head coaches in their first year at the helm. In addition, the Lakers advanced to the NCAA DII Quarterfinals for the fourth straight year. The 2004 Laker seanior class concluded their careers with a 51-5 record, including two National Championships and three title game appearances. The 51 wins by the Laker senior class tied the DII record for wins in a career. DT Keyonta Marshall became GVSU’s first-ever three-time All-American and Grand Valley State continued to set single-season attendance records with a single-game average of 10,799 in 2004.

National Championship Number Three Year number two in the Chuck Martin era started with a lot of promise and ended with a National Championship. GVSU swept through the regular season with a perfect 9-0 record. Grand Valley State held the top spot in the AFCA poll after a 14-10 comeback win at Ashland on Sept. 17. The Lakers claimed a pair of impressive wins in October over nationally-ranked opponents. GVSU claimed a 31-10 victory over #4 Saginaw Valley State and then one week later tallied a 30-14 win at #5 Northwood. The Lakers’ final game of the regular season was cancelled due to lightning on a November night. GVSU received a bye as the top seed in the Northwest Region and opened the playoffs with a familar foe in North Dakota. GVSU dominated the contest defensively and had all the points they needed by the half (14-0) en route to a 17-3 victory. A rematch with Saginaw Valley State was next and the Cardinals built a 14-7 halftime lead. However, a crucial TD on fourth-and-one tied the game in the third quarter and GVSU added 10 more points to claim a 2417 victory. The semifinals were next and East Stroudsburg (Pa.) was all that stood between the Lakers another trip to Florence. The Warriors didn’t stand in the way long and GVSU raced out to a 410 lead midway through the second quarter and went on to claim a 55-20 victory. Grand Valley State was making its fourth appearance in the NCAA DII title game in the last five years. The Lakers trailed Northwest Missouri State 17-14 midway through the fourth quarter when they started their National Championship game-winning drive. Junior QB Cullen Finnerty hit WR Eric Fowler with a key third-down pass to keep the drive alive. Senior WR Brandon Langston thought he let the title slip away when a Finnerty pass just slipped through his hands. However, Finnerty came back to the Lakers’ playmaker later in the drive and boy did he prove worthy of the task. Langston took a screen pass and raced 35 yards to paydirt to give GVSU a 21-17 lead with just over four minutes remaining. The Bearcats picked up a couple of first downs and had one final play from the Laker 25 with one tick left on the clock. The pass was completed, but senior safety Joe Ballard and sophomore linebacker Kirk Carruth made sure it was short of the goal line and GVSU had its third DII football National Championship in four years. The victory also enabled the Laker senior class to pick up their 51st victory against just four losses to establish the top victory total and best winning percentage in a four-year period. The Lakers placed 18 on the All-GLIAC team, including nine firstteamers. DT Mike McFadden was named the GLIAC Defensive Lineman of the Year, while Cullen Finnerty was named the Offensive Back of the Year. McFadden and OT Josh Bourke were consensus all-americans. McFadden was named the Gene Upshaw Award winner as the top DII interior lineman. Head coach Chuck Martin was named the AFCA DII Coach of the Year. Allendale Becomes Titletown Allendale, Michigan officially became titletown of Division II football on Dec. 16, 2006. Grand Valley State captured its fourth NCAA DII Football National Championship in the last five years (2002, 2003, 2005, 2006), becoming just the second team in DII history to finish the the season with a 15-0 mark. Grand Valley State has appeared in five title games since 2001. The Lakers swept through the 2006 regular season in dominating fashion, outscoring its GLIAC foes by an average score of 37.1 14.6. Grand Valley State then rambled through a playoff run that


STORIED TRADITION included wins over two North Central Conference schools (South Dakota and North Dakota) in regional action, a win over a Gulf South Conference team (Delta State) in the semifinals, followed by a victory over Northwest Missouri State (17-14) of the MIAA in the title game. QB Cullen Finnerty scored the game winner early in the fourth quarter on a 4-yard run and the Laker defense preserved the win. Finnerty ran for 117 and passed for 225, while cornerback Bill Brechin picked off two passes and recovered a fumble for the defense. GVSU also played on national television three times (ESPN2 twice and CSTV) during the 2006 season. An incredible 21 players earned All-GLIAC plaudits, including nine first-teamers. Seven individuals earned all-american honors, including consensus first-teamers in QB Cullen Finnerty, OT Brandon Barnes, DL Mike McFadden, LB Anthony Adams and CB Brandon Carr. GVSU concluded the 2006 season with college football’s longest active winning streak (28 games) and the winners in 85of-their-last-90 football games. Grand Valley State quarterback Cullen Finnerty concluded his career as college football’s all-time winningest starting QB in terms of total wins with a 51-4 record. The GVSU 2006 senior class ended their playing careers with a 52-4 overall mark and three National Championships. Including a redshirt year in 2002, the senior class was 66-4 with four National Championships.

Grand Valley State didn’t win the 2007 NCAA DII Football National Championship, but it took an unforseen road trip, an ice storm and a record-setting performance by an all-american running back to keep the Lakers out of the title game. The Lakers went through the regular season with a perfect 10-0 record and

won its first two playoff games en route to the NCAA Division II Semifinals. The 12 straight wins ran the Lakers’ Division II record win streak to 40 games before it ended with a loss at No. 5 Northwest Missouri State in the semifinals. The Lakers were ranked No. 1 in the nation until their loss in the 13th game. Sophomore Brad Iciek excelled in his first season as GVSU’s starting quarterback and compiled a quarterback efficiency rating of 168.12 by completing 61.1 percent of his passes for 2,850 yards and 30 touchdowns. Freshman Jimmy Berezik stepped in and ran for 1,021 yards with eight touchdowns, while Blake Smolen tallied 1,631 all-purpose yards. Senior Brandon Horn caught a team-best

55 passes for 823 yards, while Antione Trent hauled in 34 passes for 585 yards and 11 TDs. Defensively, the Lakers were led by Anthony Adams and Dan Skuta. Adams piled up 94 tackles, 52 solo, along with 20.5 tackles for loss for a total of 74 yards. He also recorded six sacks and two forced fumbles. Skuta was second on the team with 77 tackles, with 17.5 for a loss. He notched 11.5 sacks for 71 yards and forced four fumbles. Following the season, defensive back Brandon Carr was selected by the Kansas City Chiefs as the fifth pick in the fifth round of the NFL draft. Carr was the first Laker to be drafted since Keyonta Marshall was drafted in the second day of the 2005 draft. Three other Lakers earned various all-american honors following the season. Adams was named to the American Football Coaches Association All-American First Team, as well as the AP and Daktronics, Inc. All-American First Teams. Brandon Barnes earned AP and Daktronics First Team All-American plaudits, as well. He also took home the Gene Upshaw award as the best lineman in Division II football. Skuta also earned First Team All-American status from Daktronics, and also second team plaudits from the AP. The selections marked the seventh straight year that a GVSU player was named to the AFCA All-American First Team. Iciek was also named as a Harlon Hill finalist for the most valuable player in Division II football. He became the fourth straight GVSU quarterback to be named as a Harlon Hill finalist. Head coach Chuck Martin was named the NCAA Division II AFCA Region 3 Coach of the Year after leading the Laker football program to a third consecutive undefeated regular season. The Lakers tallied their fourth consecutive undefeated regular season and fourth straight GLIAC title in 2008, however, a 19-13 double overtime loss to eventual national champion MinnesotaDuluth dimmed the shine on the regular season. Iciek was a finalist for the Harlon Hill Award for the second straight year, while DT Dan Skuta, OC Billy Eisenhardt and OT Sam Allen were consensus all-america selections. The most successful DII football team since 2001 continued its winning ways in 2009. The Lakers won their fifth straight GLIAC title and advanced to the NCAA DII National Championship game for the sixth time in the last nine years. Hillsdale College snapped the Lakers’ 45-game regular season winning streak, but GVSU atoned for that loss with a win over the Chargers in the NCAA playoffs. NW Missouri State claimed a 30-23 win over the Lakers in the title game. Senior QB Brad Iciek was a Harlon Hill finalist for the third consecutive year and senior WR Blake Smolen became the Lakers all-time, all-purpose yardage leader. Nick McDonald, Danny Richard, Justin Victor and Jake McGuckin were recognized nationally for their play on the field.

THIS IS GVSU FOOTBALL


LAkER TRADITION Since 1971, when Grand Valley State University kicked off the first season of varsity football in Allendale, the Lakers have established themselves as one of the most successful college football programs in the country. Grand Valley has won national championships, rewritten record books, and produced numerous all-americans and NFL caliber players on the way to becoming a force in Division II football.

From Grand Valley State's first all-american in 1974 to the 2002 season when 11 Lakers garnered various all-america honors, GVSU has produced some of the top players in the country. Since 2001, the Lakers have had at least four players earn all-america plaudits in each season. Eric Lynch (1989-90), Jeff Fox (1998), Curt Anes (2001-02), Cullen Finnerty (2006) and Brad Iciek (2007-09) finished among the top eight finalists for the Harlon Hill Award. After finishing second in 2001, despite having the most first place votes, Curt Anes claimed Division II’s top award in 2002 and led Grand Valley State to its first National Championship the following day.

Since 2000, GVSU has won 122 games, four national championships, completed five undefeated regular seasons and won more games than any other Division I, Division I-AA, and Division II football team in the country. The Lakers have staked their claim as the team of the decade for the 2000’s.

Florence, Alabama has become a “home away from home” for the Laker football program in the 2000’s. GVSU has made the trip from Allendale to Florence six times this decade. The Lakers own an impressive 6-1 record in national semi-final games, along with a 4-2 record in the championship game. The Lakers hold the longest active streak for playoff appearances in Division II. GVSU has appeared in the playoffs every year since being in the championship game in 2001. Grand Valley holds a 27-5 record in the during the nineyear playoff streak. NCAA Division II Football Championships All-Time 5 - North Dakota State

2006 NATIONAL CHAMPIONS In 2006, the Lakers successfully defended the national championship. Along with the title defense, the Laker football program went 15-0 for the first time in school history and for just the second time in NCAA history as well. Chuck Martin earned his second AFCA Coach of the Year plaudit in just his third season as the coach of the Lakers. Cullen Finnerty finished second in Harlon Hill balloting, while Mike McFadden received his second consecutive Gene Upshaw Award in 2006. The Lakers went wire to wire as the #1 team in the country. Grand Valley got off to a bit of a rough start early in the season, but was able to peak at the right time despite suffering key injuries on the offensive line and defense. GVSU moved through the playoffs without too much of a scare, defeating South Dakota, North Dakota, and Delta State by an average score of more than two touchdowns. In the championship game, Grand Valley defeated a determined NW Missouri State for the second year in a row, 17-14. Cullen Finnerty was responsible for both Laker touchdowns, while Billy “Pix” Brechin intercepted two passes and recovered a fumble to clinch the win.


2005 NATIONAL CHAMPIONS The Lakers again returned to Florence, Ala. making their fourth appearance on ESPN in just five seasons. AFCA Coach of the Year, Chuck Martin, led the Lakers to a second undefeated championship season in just his second campaign as head coach. Grand Valley State became just the third school to win three Division II football National Championships. Cullen Finnerty, who ran for two touchdowns, connected with Brandon Langston on a screen pass which he took 35 yards to paydirt for what would be the eventual winning touchdown. The Laker defensive unit stood tall, as Mike McFadden continued to pressure the NW Missouri State quarterback despite fighting an injury from the previous week. As the game came down to the final seconds, Kirk Carruth and Joe Ballard stuffed a last gasp pass completion just short of the goal line to seal the victory. Josh Bourke and Mike McFadden garnered all-american honors, and McFadden also earned the Gene Upshaw Award. The senior class finished as the winningest class in GVSU history (51-4).


2003 NATIONAL CHAMPIONS In contrast to the 2002 season, the Lakers took to the road to claim the national championship in back-to-back seasons. In the end, GVSU would travel 13,232 miles to defend the title. Grand Valley continued its winning ways after graduating 13 starters from the previous season. Depsite seeing its 20-game win streak come to an end in the middle of the season, GVSU regrouped to finish strong with only one blemish preventing another undefeated season. Scott Mackey scored the only touchdown against Saginaw Valley in the playoff rematch to give the Lakers a 10-3 victory over Grand Valley’s biggest in-state rival. The win would give the Lakers a berth in the semifnals where GVSU ran over highly touted Texas A&M-Kingsville for a return to the championship game in Florence, Ala. Mackey, along with Lucius Hawkins, would help lead the Lakers in a tough battle versus North Dakota in the championship game. In the end, Mike Hoad would play the hero as he put an end to a late Fighting Sioux drive by picking off a pass to give the Lakers a 10-3 win against the team who narrowly defeated them in the 2001 championship game.


2002 NATIONAL CHAMPIONS Staking the claim as one of the most explosive and dynamic football teams in DII history, the 2002 Lakers went wire-to-wire as the #1 team in the nation with an incredible 11 players that earned some sort of all-america mention. GVSU completed its second undefeated regular season in 2002, on its way to winning the GLIAC title for the second consecutive year. The Lakers would go on an amazing playoff run before returning to Alabama to face Valdosta State in the title game. Grand Valley posted an average margin of victory of 42 points in three playoff games versus C.W. Post, IUP and Northern Colorado. The title game featured the first NCAA Division II championship game in which the top two teams in the country were both undefeated. Grand Valley entered as the #1 team, while Valdosta State was ranked #2. GVSU led for most of the game, but a Valdosta State comeback effort put the Blazers in position for the win. However, a calm, cool and collected Curt Anes found Kircus late in the fourth quarter to cap off a 65-yard drive to take the lead. Darren Smith tallied his second interception of the game to put Valdosta State away and seal the Lakers’ first championship. All-american David Kircus racked up a Division II championship game-record 270 receiving yards and three touchdowns to lead the Lakers to their first national championship.


Game 1 Aug. 27, 2005

Game 5 Oct. 1, 2005

THE STREAk From August 27, 2005 through December 1, 2007 Grand Valley State’s football team left the field as the victor for 40 consecutive games. GVSU stood the test of time to put its name in the history books by breaking the record for the longest winning streak in NCAA Division II history.

Game 11 Nov. 26, 2005 Game 16 Sept. 16, 2006

Hillsdale College set the record in 1957 with 34 straight wins. That mark stood strong for 50 years with few challengers. As history has shown, the record for the longest winning streak is a virtually impossible task to conquer. Wilkes and Morgan State reached just over 30 wins in the late-60’s, but no school would test the record again until 1995 when an undefeated Bentley team dropped what would have been their 31st consecutive win in the last game of the regular season against Stonehill.


Grand Valley’s path to 40 straight wins came from a more unique direction than those in the past. While Hillsdale, Wilkes, Morgan State, and Bentley all made their runs through regular season and in-conference bowl game wins. The Lakers faced the best in the country each year after the regular season concluded in a playoff system. The “second season” provides a different type of challenge by adding four or five extra games against nationally ranked opponents each season.

Game 26 Dec. 2, 2006

Game 30 Sept. 15, 2007

The improbable 40-game winning streak consisted of three consecutive undefeated regular seasons, three postseason berths, 11 playoff victories and two national championships.

Game 37 Nov. 3, 2007

Game 40 Dec. 1, 2007


qUARTERBACk U The Laker offense has been directed by four quarterbacks since 1996 and if you go all the way back to 1985, nine primary signal callers have lined up under center. Each of the Lakers’ last four quarterbacks have been Harlon Hill Award finalists as the DII Player of the Year. Brad Iciek concluded his career at GVSU in 2009 and he was a finalist for the Harlon Hill Award each of his three years. Cullen Finnerty concluded his college football career with the Lakers in 2006 and in his four seasons as the starter for Grand Valley Finnerty became the winningest starting QB in NCAA history with a 51-4 record. Finnerty also led the Lakers to a 14-1 record in the playoffs with three championship victories. Curt Anes finished his career at the top with the Lakers, leading GVSU to its first-ever NCAA DII Football National Championship during his senior year in 2002. Anes finished second in the Harlon Hill voting as a junior, despite having the most first place votes, before winning the award in 2002. Anes held the school record for most passing yards in a career (10,581) when he completed his four year career. Before Cullen Finnerty and Curt Anes, Holland native, Jeff Fox was setting records and laying the foundation for future Laker signal-callers. Fox became the first Grand Valley QB to throw for over 2,000 yards in multiple seasons. In each of Fox’s three seasons at the helm of the offense rank in the top 10 for passing in Laker annals. Kwame McKinnon, Jack Hull, Guy Schuler, Jim Lynch, and David Quinley are just a few more athletes who have stood tall as the field general for the Lakers in past seasons.


NATIONAL AwARDS The Gene Upshaw Award was introduced to NCAA Division II in 2004 to represent the lineman of the year. Since its inception, the Manheim Touchdown Club has named five winners of the award, with three of the five recipients being linemen from GVSU. Mike McFadden earned the honor in 2005 after leading the Lakers to a national championship. McFadden then capped off his career by winning the award again in 2006. Brandon Barnes kept the hardware in Allendale by garnering the most votes in 2007. Curt Anes brought the Harlon Hill Trophy back from Alabama in 2002 along with the first national championship trophy. Anes finished second in 2001. Jeff Fox and Eric Lynch both preceeded Anes as Harlon Hill finalists. Lynch was the first two-time nominee from Grand Valley (1989, 90) and Jeff Fox reached the national stage in 1998 when he would finish third in the voting. Cullen Finnerty finished his career with three national championship victories and a second place finish in the 2006 Harlon Hill votin. Brad Iciek kept the tradition alive, being the first GVSU player to be named a Harlon Hill finalist for three consecutive seasons.


ALL AMERICANS At the end of the 2009 season, Nick McDonald was a consenus all-america pick, which means he was awarded the honor by the American Football Coaches Association, the Associated Press, and Daktronics. Danny Richard was listed as a First-Team AllAmerican by Daktronics after a strong 2009 campaign. Cameron Bradfield was named to the second-team. Alex Gilde was a 2009 ESPN The Magazine Academic All-American selection. Cameron Bradfield, Justin Victor and Danny Richard have all been named 2010 preseason allamericans by the media.


Tom Tefft earned the first postseason award from the NAIA in 1973. Since then, the Lakers have earned well over 100 all-america awards. Just a few seasons later, in 1975, Dan Karpowicz proved to have the talent to lead the Lakers to national prominence. He was the first player from GVSU to earn the national award from the NCAA ranks. In 2002, while the experts were debating if the Lakers were the best team in NCAA Division II history, GVSU tallied eleven different all-americans. Now that the tradition has been built, the Lakers produce some of the nations best players every season as they contend for the national championships, all america honors, and national awards every year.


gAME DAY From players walking to the football center being greeted by tailgaiting fans before the game, to the fireworks that light up the sky to signal a Laker touchdown, a football game at Lubbers Stadium has become a community event. Just before each game the football players rush the field toward the student section to the cheers of well over 12,000 fans at each home game. It doesn’t get any better than Laker football in Lubbers Stadium. Crowd noise isn’t the only reason Lubbers Stadium is an intimidating place to play. GVSU hasn’t lost a regular season home game in over five years.


“The crowd [GVSU student section] was extremely loud. We had a difficult time at that end of the field the whole game. They are one of the loudest crowds we’ve played in front of.” -Bob Biggs, UC Davis head coach after GVSU defeated UC Davis in 2002 Lubbers Stadium is one of the most exciting Division II venues in the country. The stands are regularly packed with thousands of excited students providing a homefield advantage in the south end zone. Opposing players are surrounded on game day between the student section, Laker fans that fill the seats on each side, as well as the GVSU Marching Band in the north end zone. Both fans and players are able to experience game day in Allendale more than most any other program in the country. In the last five seasons, the Lakers have played 12 extra home games in the postseason. Laker game days can’t be contained to just five games per year.


THE COMMUNITY Student-athletes at GVSU have the opportunities to gain a great education, participate in college athletics and make a difference in the world around them. Football players have helped on campus the last few years by lending a helping hand on freshman move-in day. The Lakers have also looked to impact the community in different ways, from hurricane relief in Mississippi, visiting a Ronald McDonalds house, helping with youth football camps, and clearing room for a play area at a local camp. In 2009, the Lakers began a partnership with Mentor 1, a program whose local mission is to find mentors for at-risk youth in West Michigan.


MEDIA COVERAgE GVSU has appeared a number of times in Sports Illustrated because of its success in the 2000’s. The Lakers have also been highlighted twice in the “Leading Off” section of the magazine. They have also been featured on the national stage by USA Today. The Lakers appeared on College Football Live’s 50 States Tour in 2009 during the show that featured the State of Michigan on ESPNU. The Lakers are also regularly covered by the Grand Rapids Press, which is seen by over 300,000 readers in West Michigan on a daily basis. The Grand Rapids Press also runs the website mlive.com which has a dedicated page to cover GVSU athletics. All of Grand Valley State’s home games are shown live on the internet and on TV on the Comcast and Charter cable networks in Michigan. GVSU has also been on the ESPN family of networks nine times in the last eight years.


FACILITIES Arend D. Lubbers Stadium is the home of Laker football. The Lakers have played at Lubbers Stadium since 1972 and have amassed a .803 winning percentage in those 37 seasons. Lubbers Stadium is the focal point of the Laker football program. Since its construction it has seen many additions to improve the facilities. In recent years the stadium has expanded the home stands by one full section on each side, a new student section was built, luxury suites were added, and a new scoreboard with a prostar video display was constructed in the north end zone.


FACILITIES The Lakers are housed in the football center that sits next to Lubbers Stadium. The building includes meeting rooms for each position as well as a team room which can be used for full team meetings and press conferences. Right next to the Football Center sits the Rob Odejewski weight room which was opened just before the 2002 season. In the fall of 2008, the university opened the doors to the Laker Turf Building which has already been honored with national awards for its construction. The football program uses the facility to avoid adverse weather conditions during practices and also during off-season workouts. It features a full six lane track and a 100 yard Field Turf surface.


LUBBERS STADIUM  qUICk FACTS All-Time Home Record: 139-32-1 All-Time Home Playoff Record: 15-3 Record Attendance: 16.467 Field Surface: Natural Grass Year Built: 1972 The Lakers have not been shut out at home since 1992. GVSU has a 61-3 record at home when ranked and has won 9 straight home openers.


LAkERS IN THE PROS GVSU had two players from the program enter NFL camps by signing free agent contracts in 2010. OL Nick McDonald and K Todd Carter were both picked up by teams right after the draft and are currently participating in their off-season camps. Carter and McDonald are just the latest players on a list of former Lakers looking to turn the game of football into a career. There are currently six Lakers on NFL rosters heading into the fall; Brandon Carr (Chiefs), Dan Skuta (Bengals), Eric Fowler (Lions), Todd Carter (Panthers), Nick McDonald (Packers) and Derrick Jones (Chargers). OL Josh Bourke is also playing in one of the premier professional leagues, the CFL. Bourke was picked up by the Montreal Allouettes after a short stint in the NFL. He has been successful in his native Canada, having been named to the CFL All-Star team twice and helping to lead his team to a Grey Cup victory in 2009.

HARLON HILL AWARD The Harlon Hill Trophy annually goes to the top football player in Division II, recognizing that individual as the NCAA Division II Player of the Year. Six Laker football players have been nominated a total of 11 times for the Harlon Hill Award. Brad Icie was the most recent nominee in 2009, marking the third straight year Iciek was a nominee. Iciek is just the second player in the history of the Harlon Hill Award to be a three-time nominee and recorded two top five finishes. Cullen Finnerty was one of three finalists in 2006, while Michael Tennessee was nominated in 2003. Curt Anes (2001-02), Jeff Fox (1997-98) and Eric Lynch (1990-91) also earned multiple nominations for the award. These six former Laker gridiron greats have earned the right to be mentioned among the top players in Division II football. Finnerty became the second Laker quarterback to finish runner-up for the award this decade (Anes 2001). Tennessee was one of six nominees from the Northeast region to move on to the 24-member national ballot. Prior to 2002 when Anes won the Harlon Hill Award, his runner-up finish in 2001 was the Lakers’ highest finisher in the Hill Award voting. Anes garnered the most firstplace votes (52), but finished eight points (201) behind Dusty Bonner’s total of 209. Laker quarterback Jeff Fox finished third in the Harlon Hill Award voting in 1998 with 76 points and two first-place votes. Former Laker running back Eric Lynch finished tied for sixth in 1989 and eighth in 1990. Brad Iciek was a three-time nominee and a two-time finalist for the Harlon Hill Award. Iciek finished seventh in the voting as a sophomore in 2007 and was a Super Region 3 nominee in 2008. Iciek finished fifth in the final voting in 2009. Brad is one of two players in DII history to be a three-time nominee.

HARLON HILL AWARD

Quarterback curt anes Wins harlon hill award

Grand Valley State University quarterback Curt Anes claimed the Harlon Hill Trophy as the Division II College Football Player of the year, with the second highest vote total in the award’s 17year history. Anes recieved 271 total points in the voting and 63 first-place votes, the second highest in points as well as second highest total for first-place votes. Anes became the first-ever Harlon Hill Award winner from the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. The award winner is determined in voting by the Division II sports information directors and was presented in front of a crowd of almost 500 at the seventeenth annual Harlon Hill Trophy award banquet at the Florence Conference Center. Anes, a senior from Kentwood, Michigan, was the runner-up for last year’s Hill Trophy, finishing just eight points behind 2001 winner Dusty Bonner. In 2002 he quarterbacked Grand Valley State to an undefeated regular-season and No. 1 ranking all season, while ranking third nationally in passing efficiency and third in total offense. He ranks third in Division II history for career touchdown passes (114) and first in total offense (11,881) and is fifth all-time in career pass efficiency. He threw for 3,692 yards and 47 TDs in 2002 and led the Lakers to a 14-0 record and to the Division II National Championship. “Being a part of the Harlon Hill Trophy Award was an incredible experience,” said Anes. “It is such an honor to be mentioned in the same sentence as all of the previous winners,” added Anes. Anes became one of five individuals to win the Harlon Hill Award on Friday night and then lead his team to the NCAA DII National Championship on Saturday. “This is not an individual award. I was blessed with incredible team, coaches and support staff that all played a key role in helping achieve this honor,” stated Anes. C.W. Post senior running back Ian Smart was second with 180 points and 31 first-place votes, and St. Cloud State junior quarterback Keith Heckendorf was third with 93 points and 7 firstplace votes.

GENE UPSHAW AWARD

mike mcFadden Wins 2005 & 2006 gene upshaw award SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. – Michael McFadden, a senior defensive end on Grand Valley State University’s national championship team, was selected as the repeat winner of the Gene Upshaw Division II Lineman of the Year Award, sponsored by the Manheim Touchdown Club. The Upshaw Award winner is selected by the sports information directors of the 150 football-playing NCAA Division II institutions and is named in honor of the current Executive Director of the National Football League Players Association. Gene Upshaw was a standout lineman at Texas A&I University (now Texas A&M-Kingsville) before achieving All-Pro status six times during his 16-year career with the NFL Oakland Raiders. He was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1987, his first year of eligibility and has served as the NFLPA executive director since 1983. “I congratulate Mike McFadden on being named the winner of the Division II Lineman of the Year Award for the second consecutive year,” Mr. Upshaw said. “It comes as no surprise that Mike continues to receive accolades for his play on the football field. He continues to dominate against opposing quarterbacks as evidenced by his 23 sacks in the last 30 games.” Don Harris, president of the Manheim Touchdown Club, which sponsors the award, added: “When you look at all Mike McFadden has accomplished on the football field, it is only fitting that he should be the first two-time winner of this award. After hosting Mike and his family at our 2005 banquet last year, you could see that this young man processes a great deal of character to go along with his athletic ability.” McFadden was the overwhelming choice in this year’s balloting; he was listed as one of the top three choices by 83 percent of the voters and was the No. 1 choice of 46 percent of the voters. Jason Capizzi, a senior offensive tackle for Indiana University of Pa., and Robbie Klinetobe, a junior offensive guard for Chadron State University, tied for second place in this year’s voting. The other finalists for the award included Newberry College offensive tackle Heath Benedict, North Carolina Central University center Robert Duncan, California University of Pa. center Tim McCutcheon, University of South Dakota center Chris Morton and Northwest Missouri State University defensive end Ryan Waters. “It is truly an honor to be named the Gene Upshaw Award winner for a second time,” McFadden said. “I have so much respect for Mr. Upshaw and what the Gene Upshaw Award stands for and I am humbled with this honor when so many deserving candidates were nominated.” Grand Valley State head coach Chuck Martin added, “Mike McFadden is everything the Gene Upshaw Awards stands for. Mike is an amazing football player, but more than that, Mike is even a better person, and we are excited to see Mike get his just due for his accomplishments both on and off the football field.” McFadden, a 6-foot-1, 255-pound native of Saginaw, Mich. (Heritage High School), received Gene Upshaw Division II Lineman of the Year AwardSponsored by the Manheim Touchdown ClubMike McFadden double-team attention from opposing teams but still recorded 61 tackles this fall, including 29 solo takedowns, 13.5 tackles for loss (-54 yards) and seven quarterback sacks (-41 yards). He also received the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) Defensive Lineman of the Year honor for the second straight year, as well as a second successive first-team All-GLIAC citation. McFadden recorded at least one tackle for loss in 30 of the last 39 games and at least one QB sack in 23 of the last 30 games. He is the NCAA D-II all-time record holder for career QB sacks with 34.5 and ranks fourth all-time in career

tackles for loss with 55.5. Earlier this season, McFadden tied the NCAA all-division record for consecutive games with a QB sacks with 17. What does not show up in McFadden’s statistics is the fact that, because of the attention paid to him by rivals, all three of his defensive line mates were able to record career highs in every category this fall.“I was fortunate to have the opportunity to play with so many quality football players at Grand Valley State and this is just as much of a team award as an idividual award. I was just 1/11th of our defense and that is how we approached every down defensively at Grand Valley State.” As a unit, Grand Valley’s defensive unit led the nation in QB sacks per game (3.75) and ranked 13th in scoring defense (14.1) and 38th in rushing defense (105.1). In addition to receiving the Upshaw Award in 2005, McFadden was named as a first-team All-American by the Associated Press, American Football Coaches Association (AFCA), Don Hansen’s Football Gazette, D2Football.com and Daktronics, Inc. and was named as the Football Gazette’s Defensive Lineman of the Year. McFadden earned honorable mention All-GLIAC honors as a sophomore and was a Freshman All-American in 2003. McFadden is also actively involved in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. McFadden was a dominent figure en route to earning the award as a junior. He concluded his junior campaign as the national co-leader in quarterback sacks with 19 and was third in the nation in tackles for loss with 21.5 (-110 yards). He recorded at least one quarterback sack and tackle for loss in each of Grand Valley State’s 13 games last fall, a run that resulted in the Lakers winning their third national title in the last four seasons. Despite playing the entire game with a hip flexor injury, McFadden recorded one QB sack (-7 yards) in Grand Valley State’s national championship-game win over Northwest Missouri State. He recorded five tackles, four tackles for loss (-13 yards) and three QB sacks (-12 yards) in less than two quarters of action in the Lakers’ national semifinal win over East Stroudsburg (Pa.). McFadden, the only junior among the eight national finalists for this year’s Upshaw Award, is currently tied for the GVSU career record for QB sacks with 29. His 2005 total of 19 set a school singleseason record. He was the Lakers’ No. 2 tackler with 83.

FLORENCE, Ala. (AP) -- Jed Perkerewiez scored on a 1-yard with 29 seconds to play as North Dakota outlasted Grand Valley State 17-14 on Saturday for its first NCAA Division II championship. Grand Valley State (13-1) appeared poised to win its first national championship when quarterback Ryan Brady scored his second touchdown of the day on a 12-yard run with 2:46 to play. North Dakota (14-1) then drove 80 yards in nine plays for the winning score. On fourth down with 38 seconds to play, Kelby Klosterman hit Luke Schleusner with a 58-yard pass to the 1. Perkerewiez scored on the next play. Perkerewiez ran 26 times for 96 yards to lead a North Dakota team that did most of its damage on the ground on an overcast, damp day. North Dakota took the lead with 12:55 to play on Klosterman's 9-yard run. The Fighting Sioux quarterback ran for 61 yards and completed 8 of 27 passes for 139 yards. For Grand Valley State, Brady and Todd Wojciechowski split quarterbacking duties, with Brady rushing for 89 yards. Wojciechowski was the Lakers' passing quarterback, completing 11 of 22 attempts for 128 yards. Brady, a receiver for much of the season, and Wojciechowski were filling in for injured Curt Anes, a finalist for Harlon Hill Trophy who suffered a season-ending knee injury in the Lakers' first playoff game. Grand Valley State led 7-3 at halftime after a sloppy first half that featured three missed field goals by North Dakota and two turnovers by the Lakers. The Fighting Sioux took the opening kickoff and drove 56 yards in 10 plays to set up a 36-yard field goal by Cameron Peterka. The North Dakota kicker missed field-goal attempts from 47, 38 and 36 yards later in the half. The Lakers drove 70 yards in 10 plays late in the first quarter with Brady scoring on a two-yard-run. The drive featured both Grand Valley State quarterbacks, with Wojciechowski completing passes of 19 and 20 yards to David Kircus, and Brady setting up the score with an 18-yard run to the 5. North Dakota's Mike O'Neil intercepted two of Wojciechowski's passes in the first half, including one at the goal line when the Lakers were threatening midway through the second quarter.

Grand Valley Claims Division II National Championship 24 24 24 31

Florence, Ala. - Harlon Hill Award winner Curt Anes hit All-American wide receiver David Kircus with a 10-yard scoring pass with 1:04 left in the game to lift Grand Valley State to a 31-24 victory and the 2002 NCAA Division II Football National Championship. The National Championship is the school's first-ever in a varsity sport. Valdosta State opened the scoring with a field goal by Will Rhody at the 6:23 mark of the first quarter. The field goal capped an 8-play, 89-yard drive and put the Lakers behind for just the second time in 2002. The VSU lead didn't last long as GVSU went 58 yards in just two plays. Anes hit Kircus with a 49-yard pass play, and Reggie Spearmon carried the ball in from 9-yards out to put the Lakers up 7-3. The Blazers were forced to punt on its ensuing drive and the Lakers struck quickly again. Anes hit Kircus again, this time with a 54-yards out and David Hendrix added the PAT to put the Lakers up 14-3. GVSU drove 23 yards in five plays and Hendrix hit a 38-yard field goal to put GVSU up 17-3. VSU added a field goal late in the second quarter to pull the Blazers within 11 (17-6) at the half. The Lakers forced a three and out to open the second half and the GVSU took advantage as Anes hit Kircus with a 67-yard scoring pass. Hendrix added the PAT and GVSU led 24-6. VSU scored it first TD of the game midway through the third quarter as Aaron Jenkins rambled in from seven yards out to cap a 14-play, 56-yard drive. GVSU missed a pair of scoring opportunities and the Blazers capitalized to close the margin. Rhody kicked a 43-yard field goal, followed by a mishandled snap by Laker QB Curt Anes that VSU's Tim Thompson recovered for TD. Buster Faulkner hit C.J. Lofton with the two-point conversion to tie the game at 24-24 with 3:09 left. Terrence Banks put the Lakers in good field position with a 30-yard kickoff return. Anes and Kircus then went to work. Anes hit Kircus with an 8-yard completion, then a 33-yard stop-n-go. Facing a third and nine from the VSU 26 yard line, Anes hit Kircus with a 10-yard completion. Spearmon ran six yards to the Blazer 10 to set up the winning score. Anes checked from a run play to pass play and hit Kircus with the National Championship winning score. Anes completed 23-of-36 passes for 361 yards and three TDs. Kircus caught a championship game record 11 passes for record 270 yards and three TDs. Terrence Banks caught nine passes for 66 yards, while Brent Lesniak rushed eight times for 56 yards. Spearmon rushed 14 times for 29 yards. DB Melvin Estes and DL Keyonta Marshal led the defense with a combined 24 tackles and 12 tackles for loss (37 yards). Estes notched 12 tackles, six tackles for loss (-21) and 2.5 QB sacks, while Marshall chipped in 12 stops, six tackles for loss and one QB sack. LB Orlando Williams notched eight tackles, two tackles for loss and one QB sack. CB Darren Smith snagged a pair of interception and notched two pass deflections. GVSU completed the 2002 season with a perfect 14-0 record, including wins in 33of-its-last-34 games.

Florence, Ala. - A determined North Dakota football team could not break the will of the Grand Valley State University defense this time. The Lakers held off a potential game-winning drive late, intercepting a pass near the goal line to preserve a 10-3 win in the NCAA Division II Championship Game Saturday. The effort in front of a Braly Municipal Stadium crowd of 7,236 allowed GVSU to become the sixth Division II team to win back-to-back national titles since the first championship game in 1973. Grand Valley (14-1) would be celebrating three titles in a row if North Dakota hadn't rallied in 2001 to beat the Lakers 17-14 with a fourth-quarter drive. “That was deja vu that North Dakota moved the ball down field," GVSU coach Brian Kelly said, referring to the game's dramatic finish. "Our defense has just answered

the bell the past three weeks. They have not let up a touchdown now in 12 consecutive quarters of playoff competition. That's a lot to be said in terms of how we got back here. "We got back here on the backs of our defense." The defense sought redemption for a dejecting end to the 2001 contest against North Dakota. The Fighting Sioux edged Grand Valley two years ago when they scored on a 1yard touchdown run with 29 seconds left. A 58-yard reception for a tight end off a missed tackle set up the decisive score. This year, North Dakota were thinking of a similar end when GVSU's David Hendrix missed a 43-yard field goal with 3 minutes, 54 seconds remaining. The Fighting Sioux (12-2) moved up the field and put themselves in a 1st-and-10 at the Grand Valley 17-yard line. They downed the ball to stop the clock. The Lakers then forced two incomplete passes, including a third-down one that fell incomplete in the end zone. North Dakota quarterback John Bowenkamp looked to keep the drive alive on fourth quarter, but GVSU linebacker Mike Hoad stepped in front of the pass at the 5yard line. The Lakers squashed the comeback bid. "We thought the defense had to step up a lot this year," said Hoad, a senior. "We had our backs up against the wall at the end. I think (the resilience) was typical of our seniors and our character." Hoad and his teammates would have been tested further had the Fighting Sioux got into the end zone. North Dakota, which missed two field goals during the game, would have gone for the go-ahead two-point conversion had they scored, according to Fighting Sioux coach Dale Lennon. Instead, North Dakota was dealing with a tough loss. "They beat us at our game," Lennon said. The low-scoring contest featured only a 19-yard David Hendrix field goal midway through the first quarter. The Lakers too the opening drive 79 yards in 17 plays before reaching the 1-yard line and settling for a field goal. The drive was Grand Valley's second-longest of the season. Neither team scored in the half. The 3-0 score was the lowest at halftime of NCAA Division II Championship Game history since 1989 when Mississippi College and Jacksonville State were scoreless. North Dakota, which had not been shutout in a half this season, threatened right away in the third quarter, though The Fighting Sioux took the opening drive of the second half and marched 63 yards to the GVSU 7-yard line. On third-and-four, quarterback John Bowenkamp dropped back to pass then scrambled to his right. A charging Grand Valley linebacker, Lucius Hawkins, hit Bowenkamp after he pump-faked and forced a fumble. Hawkins scooped up the football and raced 59 yards to the North Dakota 20-yard line. Four plays later, running back Michael Tennessee barrelled into the end zone from 1 yard out. Tennessee's 16th touchdown of the season and a Hendrix extra point put the Lakers ahead 10-0 with 9:15 remaining in the third quarter. The Fighting Sioux bounced back on their next series and set themselves up for a 43-yard field goal. Kicker Jeff Glas, however, slipped on his approach and Grand Valley defensive lineman Keyonta Marshall easily deflected the kick. Glas also pulled a 46-yard field goal in the first quarter. It was the fourth time this season Glas had missed at least two field goals in a game. Glas finally connected on a 35-yard field goal 9:47 into the fourth quarter. It wasn't enough. Grand Valley joined the 1999 Northern Colorado team as the only ones to win a national championship while never playing at a home. The Lakers won four road games in the playoffs and six in a row including the regular season. "It means a lot (to earn a national title by winning four consecutive games on the road.)," Kelly said. "They did it in tough circumstances. Maybe they can get credit for being one of those all-time great teams."

RB Astin Martin scored from one yard out to put the finishing touches on a 4-play, 64-yard drive and Brandon Carr returned a fumble 40 yards for a TD to give GVSU a 27-0 lead.

The Lakers' 34 first quarter points set a GVSU playoff record for points in a quarter, breaking the previous mark of 31 (2nd Q) set in 2002 versus Indiana (Pa.).
