Wartburg used a balanced attack en route to setting several team and individual records, while his offensive lines allowed just 48 quarterback sacks in over 1,600 passing attempts from 2002-2009. Tim spent two years (1999-2000) coaching the linebackers and special teams at Allegheny College. Morrison earned four letters (1995-1999) and was the starting fullback for three seasons at Wartburg. He was voted team captain as a senior. Morrison earned a B.A. degree in secondary education at Wartburg in 1999 and completed his masters of arts in education degree from Viterbo (Wis.) University in July of 2007. Tim and his wife, Betsy, reside in Grandville with daughter Harper (1)

Nick Postma Assistant Coach Defensive Backs 3rd Season Nick Postma enters his third year as the defensive backs coach at Grand Valley State. Postma is making his second stint on the Laker coaching staff, having served as a graduate assistant in 2007. Postma tutored a young defensive secondary in 2011 and will have the benefit of nearly every player that saw game action in 2011 return to the gridiron in 2012. Safety Erik Thompson is a returning AllGLIAC performer, while Reggie Williams (CB) and Michael Hatcher (CB) return as starters. In addition, several key newcomers will be in the mix for playing time. Postma tutored three All-GLIAC performers (Matt Bakker, Zach Breen, Rob Carlisle) in 2010 as GVSU’s secondary picked off 18 passes and notched 35 pass deflections as a group. The Laker defensive secondary ranked nationally in pass defense, pass breakups and interceptions. Prior to his return to GVSU, Postma spent two years as an assistant coach at Lake Erie College in Painesville, Ohio where he coached the defensive backs. Nick spent the 2006 campaign at Gannon University as a defensive backs coach. A graduate of Saginaw Valley State, Postma earned a bachelor's degree in exercise science in June of 2005. Postma was a four-year letterwinner and a three-year starter for the Cardinals on the gridiron as a strong safety. Saginaw Valley State appeared in the NCAA Division II playoffs each of his playing seasons, while also capturing a GLIAC Championship in 2003. SVSU compiled an overall record of 39-9 and a GLIAC mark of 34-6 during his career. Postma, who recorded 110 career tackles, earned All-GLIAC honors as a senior. "It is exciting to return to Grand Valley State and the football program," said Postma. "Grand Valley State has an incredible tradition on the football field and I am eager to get going and prepare for spring practice."

PREVIEW The 2012 Grand Valley State football team didn’t say much about the 2011 campaign. How it started, how it ended or anything in between. They knew no one was going to feel sorry for them so they took the bitter pill of disappointment and began to work towards 2012. “You get what you deserve and our team, coaches and players, didn’t get the job done during that three-game stretch early in the year,” said second-year head coach Matt Mitchell. “However, I was equally impressed with how our team stayed together. Coaches and players believed in what we were doing and never strayed from our course,” added Mitchell. The streak of 10 consecutive playoff appearances and six straight GLIAC Championships were over. What did remain was the seven consecutive wins to end the 2011 season, a streak which tops all of Division II football. Grand Valley State returns 44 letterwinners and 20 starters to the mix in 2012. Offensively, the Lakers return 2,491 rushing yards and 24 rushing TDs. For the first time in three years the starting quarterback will return and the 2,642 passing yards and 35 passing TDs also return. On the receiving end, 1,860 receiving yards return along with 22 TDs. Defensively, the youngest unit the Lakers have fielded since 2001 gained valuable experience in 2011 and will get the services of several key performers back. The GVSU defense, still young with only three seniors, will look to again be one of the best defensive teams in the country. Since 2001, every quarterback that returned as a starter from the previous season has led Grand Valley State to the NCAA Division II National Championship game. Junior Heath Parling (6-3, 215) is returning for his second season as a starter after leading the nation in

Redshirt freshman Brandon Beitzel (6-3, 225) turned in a solid spring and will battle for snaps as a reserve. “Heath was impressive to say the least in dealing with our early season struggles. He personally was under a lot of pressure, but he kept our offensive unit together and got them on track for the remainder of the season,’ said Mitchell. The Lakers are deep with talent when talking about the running backs for the 2012 campaign. Senior Norman Shuford (5-10, 196) rushed for 656 yards and five TDs in just seven games before injuring his knee. Junior Hersey Jackson (6-0, 220) led the squad in rushing yards (764) and rushing TDs in 2012.

We have experience and we have players that are trying to get on the bus,” said Mitchell.


PREVIEW Senior Charles Johnson (6-3, 225) hauled in 56 receptions for 1,030 and 15 TDs a year ago and is ready for a big senior year. Johnson ranked among the national leaders in every receiving category in 2011. Senior Israel Woolfork (6-3, 210) is GVSU’s most versatile receiver and will be more of a featured option in the passing game. Junior Brandan Green (5-10, 170) caught eight passes for 82 yards and turned in an outstanding spring. Fellow junior Billy Seiler (5-7, 170) will see action in the slot with Green. Sophomore’s Keontre’ Miskel (6-1, 190), Darryl Pitts (6-2, 195) and Steve Eleazer (62, 200) made strong showings in a reserve role in 2011, but will be counted on for key contributions in 2012. “Obviously Charles Johnson is one of the top receivers in the country and we are expecting big things from him in 2012. It is also time for Israel Woolfork to step up and make an impact in our offensive scheme. Brandan Green is another player that we are expecting to make key contributions,” added Mitchell. Sophomore Joe Wirth (6-4, 249) and redshirt freshman Jaime Potts (6-2, 215) will handle the tight end duties, with sophomore Ryan Ploetz (6-5, 245) and redshirt freshman John Kamps (6-5, 253) also working in the mix. A pair of true TIGHT eNdS Class freshmen, Jeremy Byers (6- Player Ryan Ploetz So. 3, 215) and Joe Warner (6- Joe Wirth So. Cox RFr. 4, 230), could also enter the Aaron Jamie Potts RFr.

Redshirt freshmen Aaron Cox, Brandon Revenberg, Connor Gould and Jim Walsh will push for playing time. “You need to be stout on the offensive line and we feel that we have a group that can be among the best offensive lines in the country,” said Mitchell. The Laker defensive line will go 10 deep with a two and three player rotation at every position. Seniors Ryan Pettis (6-2, 240) and Ricky Thomas (6-2, 285) will be looked to for leadership.

Depth will not be a problem in the secondary as the Lakers will have as many as 13 players seeing playing time. Junior safety Erik Thompson (6-1, 200) is a preseason All-American candidate. Thompson led the Lakers with five interceptions, returning two for touchdowns. Both corners, Reggie Williams (5-9, 175) and Michael Hatcher (5-10, 185) are returning starters.

Allendale, mich. - The No. 5 ranked Grand Valley State football team claimed an impressive 44-20 victory over Western Oregon Thursday (Sept. 1) on one of the hottest nights in Lubbers Stadium history. Temperatures stayed in upper 80's for the entire game, but the Lakers won their 11th straight season-opening game and 34th straight game at Lubbers Stadium before the second largest crowd (15,004) in Lubbers Stadium history. GVSU will open GLIAC action next Saturday (Sept. 10) night at Hillsdale College. "We feel good about the win, but we have a lot of work to do before we go play a very good Hillsdale College team next Saturday, said second-year head coach Matt Mitchell. I saw a lot of good things for our first game, but I can also think of a number areas that we really need work on. However, we wanted to be 1-0 after the first game and we are so we will celebrate the win." The Lakers started fast, taking the opening kickoff 60 yards in six plays for a score that took only 1:34 off the clock. Sophomore QB Heath Parling (Plymouth, Mich./Salem) hit junior WR Charles Johnson (Elsmere, Kent.) with a 30-yard scoring pass and sophomore place kicker Ryan Stokes (Merrillville, Ind.) added the first of his six PATs for a 7-0 Laker lead. The Laker defense then got on the board late in the first quarter following a fumble deep in Western Oregon territory. Junior defensive tackle Brandon Allen (Joliet, Ill.) dropped Evan Mozzochi in the end zone for a safety to give GVSU a 9-0 lead. The safety was the first for GVSU since 2008. Grand Valley State scored twice in the last six minutes of the second quarter. Parling hit senior WR Jovonne Augustus (Grand Rapids, Mich.) with a 9-yard scoring pass, followed by a blocked punt for a score. Sophomore safety Erik Thompson (Pontiac, Mich.) blocked the punt that junior WR Israel Woolfork (Livonia, Mich.) scooped up and raced five yards for a score to up the Laker lead to 23-0 with 3:55 left in the first half. The Laker defense held Western Oregon to 87 yards of total offense in the first half, while the GVSU offense churned out 287 total yards (150 rushing/159 passing). "I really liked the way we started and finished the first half offensively, but we let a couple of opportunities slip away in the middle. Defensively, I thought we controlled the line scrimmage and had a nice push by our defensive line," said Mitchell. Western Oregon took 7:18 off the clock in its opening drive of the second half that resulted in a field goal. The Wolves drove 61 yards in 17 plays that concluded with a Kelly Morgan 32 yard field goal. The Laker punt team was then responsible for two TDs in third quarter. Michael Hatcher (Dearborn, Mich.) recovered a fumbled punt and junior RB Norman Shuford (Farmington Hills, Mich.) finished a 12 yard drive when he scored on a 1-yard run to up the Laker lead to to 30-3. Western Oregon added a second field in the third stanza, but senior FB Blair Hollis (Detroit, Mich.) forced another fumble on a Laker punt that sophomore DL Denzel Rodgers (Clinton Twp., Mich.) recovered on the Wolve 15 yard line. Parling hit Johnson with a 13-yard scoring strike to up the Laker lead to 37-6 with 30 ticks left in the third quarter. That would be the end of night for the Laker starters on both sides of the ball. "I really liked the fact that we were able convert those two turnovers in the third quarter into touchdowns," added Mitchell. Western Oregon converted a pair of fourth downs and scored on a 15-yard scoring pass to conclude an 11-play, 75-yard drive midway through the fourth quarter, but GVSU recovered the onside kick and freshman running back Ben Hutchins (Portage, Mich.) scored on a 1-yard TD run to give GVSU a 44-13 lead. Western Oregon concluded the scoring with an interception return for a touchdown with 2:37 left in the game. GVSU tallied 397 yards of total offense, including 247 through the air and 150 on the ground. The Laker defense held Western Oregon to 247 yards of total offense (85 rushing/165 passing). Parling completed 15-of-27 passes for 205 yards and three TDs in his first collegiate start. Augustus caught four passes for 50 yards and a score, while Johnson hauled in three passes for 63 yards and two TDs. Shuford rushed for 58 yards and one TD on 10 carries, while hauling in three passes for 33 yards. Sophomore running back Hersey Jackson (Allendale, Mich.) rushed for 43 yards on 10 carries.

Parling finished the drive with an 11-yard TD pass to junior WR Charles Johnson and sophomore PK Ryan Stokes added the PAT for a 7-0 GVSU lead just 2:54 into the game. Ferris State moved the ball effectively on its first drive, but the Laker defense held and forced a 29-yard field goal attempt that sailed wide right. The Laker offense continued to rip off huge chunks with five of seven plays covering 13 yards or more on the 80 yard scoring drive. Parling hit Johnson again, this one covering the final 19 yards and Stokes added the PAT for a 14-0 lead at the 4:27 mark of the first quarter. GVSU sophomore DB Charles Hill recovered an errant shotgun snap at the FSU 32 yard line on the Bulldogs second play from scrimmage to set up another Laker scoring drive. The Lakers needed just three plays to drive 32 yards as Jackson scored on a two yard run and Stokes' PAT upped the GVSU lead to 21-0 with 1:57 left in the first quarter. The GVSU defense forced a three-and-out and FSU punter Shawn Snoor shanked a 9-yard punt out of bounds to give the Lakers possession at the FSU 32 yard line with 1:02 remaining in the first quarter. Grand Valley State moved 32 yards in five plays as Parling hit senior WR Jovonne Augustus with a 9-yard TD pass on the second play of the second quarter to up the GVSU lead to 28-0. The Laker defense forced FSU into a pair of three-and-out drives and GVSU upped its lead to 31-0 after a 5-play, 40-yard drive that resulted in a career-long field goal of 35 yards from Stokes. Parling hit Johnson with a 39 yard pass to set up the field goal. Ferris State WR Mike Ryan hit QB Tom Schneider with a 15-yard throwback pass that resulted in a TD and concluded an 8-play, 71-yard drive. However, GVSU needed just 59 seconds and five plays to go 53 yards for an answer. Parling completed passes of 18 and 22 yards to Johnson, followed by an 18-yard TD pass to senior WR Greg Gay and after Stoke hit his fifth PAT of the night GVSU led 38-7. The GVSU offense rolled up 344 yards in the first half, including a 15-for-21 performance with four TDs from Parling. Jackson rushed 11 times for 104 yards in the opening two quarters.

Parling finished the 7-play, 60-yard drive with a 1-yard TD pass to Greg Gay to give the Lakers a 44-7 lead. The Bulldogs drove inside the Laker five yard line, but the GVSU defense held and forced an incompletion on fourth down to thwart the red zone opportunity. GVSU drove 96 yards in six plays for yet another touchdown. Freshman Chris Robinson, seeing his first action as a Laker, ripped off an 18 yard run on first down and caught a 25 yard swing pass from Parling on a second down play. Parling hit Johnson with a 35 yard completion followed by a 9-yard scoring pass to WR Israel Woolfork. Ferris State kicked a 30 yard field goal early in the fourth quarter, but the Lakers' second offensive unit drove 78 yards in seven plays for the final TD. Freshman running back Ben Hutchins tallied 41 rushing yards on five carries and Isiah Grimes hit WR Darryl Pitts with a 37 yard completion. Hutchins finished the drive with a 1yard TD run and Stokes booted the PAT for the final margin of 57-10. The GVSU offense rolled up 631 total yards, including 399 through the air and 232 via the ground. The Lakers averaged 9.7 yards per play and scored eight TDs. The GVSU defense limited the GLIAC total offense leader, Ferris State, to just 369 yards, including the starting defense yielding just 193 yards. Parling completed 21-of-28 passes for a career-high 336 yards and six TDs. The 336 passing yards equalled Brad Iciek's mark of 336 passing yards vs. Saginaw Valley State in 2009 as the 10th best single-game mark at Lubbers Stadium. In addition, his six TD passes equalled Curt Anes' mark of six he tossed three times in his career. Jackson rushed for 106 yards and one TD on 12 carries, while Robinson added 65 yards on nine carries in his first collegiate game. Hutchins added 41 yards on five carries. WR Charles Johnson caught six passes for 144 yards and two TDs, while Ratay hauled in five passes for 70 yards.

The Laker defense tallied four QB sacks and six tackles for loss (-28).

Allendale, mich. - Grand Valley State claimed 24-20 comeback victory over Michigan Tech on Saturday (Oct. 29) night at Lubbers Stadium before a crowd of 9,199. GVSU improves to 6-3 overall and 5-3 in GLIAC action, while Michigan Tech falls to 5-4 overall and 4-4 in GLIAC action. The Lakers will be at Northwood next Saturday (Nov. 5) for a 12 noon tilt. The game hardly started the way head coach Matt Mitchell envisioned. The Lakers won the toss and elected to take the ball. However, Michigan Tech recorded two QB sacks and held the Lakers to minus eight yards on the possession and forced a punt. The Michigan Tech ball control offense promptly used 7:41 off the clock, driving 65 yards in 15 plays for a score. QB Tyler Scarlett hit WR Steve Worthy with an 8 yard pass and the PAT gave the Huskies a 7-0 lead. GVSU turned in a 15-play drive of its own on its next possession. The drive stalled at the MTU 25 yard line, but sophomore PK Ryan Stokes kicked a career-long 40-yard field goal. The Huskies didn't need a ball control offense on its ensuing possession as Scarlett hit Worthy again, this TD covering 42 yards to complete a 4-play, 74-yard drive. However, GVSU senior DT Andre Thomas blocked the PAT in what would prove to be very meaningful at the end of the game. The Laker offense answered with an impressive 7-play, 74-yard drive that finished with a 1-yard TD run by sophomore RB Hersey Jackson. Sophomore QB Heath Parling completed an 18-yard pass to junior WR Charles Johnson, followed by a 23-yard run by Jackson. Parling then hit senior WR Jovonne Augustus with a 21-yard pass and catch to the MTU 1-yard line before the jackson scored. The Laker defense held Michigan Tech out of the endzone when the Huskies had a first-and-goal, but MTU forced a punt and drove 40 yards in 5 plays as Scarlett hit Worthy for the third time in the first half to up its lead to 20-10 at the half. The Laker defense forced an MTU punt on its opening possession of the second half and GVSU drove inside the MTU 10 yard line. The Lakers appeared to have scored a TD on third down as Jackson crossed the goal line, but officials ruled he was down and MTU held on fourth down to thwart the drive. GVSU's defense forced a punt and Parling hit Johnson with back-to-back passes, the second of which covered 35 yards for a TD and the PAT cut the MTU lead to three (20-17). The Lakers moved inside Husky territory, but could not get close enough for a field goal. However, a Ryan Stokes punt pinned MTU inside its own 20-yard line and GVSU sophomore CB Reggie Williams picked off Scarlett on MTU's first play and returned it to the 21-yard line to set up the Laker offense. Parling gave the Lakers their first lead of the night as he hit Augustus with a 17-yard TD pass on third down and Stokes' PAT upped the GVSU lead to 24-20. The GVSU defense continued to play well in the second half and kept Michigan Tech out of the endzone on its final drive to preserve the win. The Huskies needed a TD on its final possession because of the blocked PAT earlier in the game, but Scarlett was tackled short of a first down on a fourth down scramble to conclude the game. Michigan Tech rolled up 225 yards and 20 points in the first half, but the Laker defense limited the Huskies to 114 total yards and no points in the second half. On the flip side, MTU managed just 149 yards in the first half, but notched 213 yards and 14 points in the second half. Parling completed 16-of-25 passes for 232 yards and two TDs, while Johnson hauled in six passes for 117 yards and one TD. Brandan Green caught a career-high four passes for 30 yards, while Augustus pulled down three catches for 53 yards. Jackson rushed for 97 tough yards on 21 carries to lead the GVSU ground game that churned out 130 yards. Senior safety Zach Breen led the GVSU defense with 10 tackles, a QB sack and a a tackle for loss, while senior LB Brad Howard chipped in nine tackles, 1.5 QB sacks and 2.0 TFL. Sophomore LB Zach Galloway added nine stops, a QB sack and a TFL. GVSU tallied four QB sacks and eight TFL. )

Allendale, mich. - Grand Valley State closed the 2011 regular season in fine fashion Saturday at Lubbers Stadium with an impressive 49-24 victory over previously No. 25 Saginaw Valley State before a crowd of 11,163.

GVSU ran the ball four times and threw four passes on the drive. Saginaw Valley State answered quickly as sophomore QB Jonathan Jennings turned a QB keeper into a 60 yard TD run and the PAT tied the game at 7-7. The Cardinal defense had no answer for the balanced Laker attack as GVSU drove 80 yards in 12 plays (8 run/4 pass) for a 3 yard TD run by freshman Michael Ratay. Stokes' PAT upped the Laker lead to 14-7. The Laker defense forced a three-and-out and the offense went back to work. Sophomore QB Heath Parling directed an 11-play, 86-yard drive that took 6:11 off the clock. Six passes and five runs, including three straight by Ratay for 42 yards moved GVSU inside the SVSU 30 yard line. Ratay rambled 24 yards for a first down on fourth-and-one.

SVSU returned the kickoff 88 yards to the Grand Valley State nine and scored three plays later as Jennings hit TE Zach Cecich with a 3 yard TD pass to close the gap (28-24). That would be as close as the Cardinals would get as Erik Thompson answered with the big blow, a 100 yard kickoff return for a touchdown and Stokes kicked his fifth PAT of the day for a 35-24 GVSU lead. GVSU's defense forced another punt and Robinson then accounted for all 86 yards in six plays for a Laker touchdown.

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 overall festivities that are a part of a Laker football Saturday during the fall. 2012 will bring much of the same as Lubbers Stadium is going through its most extensive renovation since it opened in 1979. The field was lowered by eight feet and the track surrounding the field was removed. Four rows of seats were installed and wrap around the field to accentuate the horseshoe that added about 2,000 seats. A grass slope was also installed on the north side of the field underneath the video board, which will move the band to the southeast corner of the stadium. The finished project, which includes the installation of an artificial turf playing surface, will bring the overall seating capacity to 10,444. However, including the North endzone and overflow areas the stadium will accomadate over 14,000. For the 2011 season, the stadium saw a renovated student section with a permanent bathroom and concession building located behind. In addition, the home sideline stands have been wrapped in blue acrylic for a more comfortable experience, while a new stadium sound system has been installed on top of the scoreboard. A Daktronics scoreboard with a ProStar video display board was added for the 2005 season. Two seating sections were added to each end of the west side stands to accomadate the overflow crowds that have been a part of Lubbers Stadium since 2001. The Lakers moved all of their football operations into the GVSU Football Center and the Rob Odejewski Weight Room in 2002.

LUBBERS STADIUM 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 seven years. The student seating area, which moved to south endzone in 1998, has created unmatched excitment among the student body. The student seating section has increased in capacity from 3,300 with the new bleachers. The Laker student seating section is routinely filled to capacity with the overflow moving into every open area available. The Lakers set a Lubbers Stadium and GLIAC single-game on-campus 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 alltime single-game crowds and four of the top 13 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 37-ofthe-last-41 regular season games since 2004 and 48-of-52 since 2002. Designed with the future in mind, the stadium can have permanent seating added when needed, with ultimate expansion to 20,000 seats. 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. The original 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. The Lubbers Stadium press box was designed to accomodate both print and electronic media representatives. It’s spacious features include a television booth, two radio booths and an open air television and film platform on the second deck. Grand Valley’s football team has been very successful in games at Lubbers Stadium. The Lakers have an all-time record of 159-34-1 (.822) since the stadium was completed in 1979 and GVSU is 74-4 at home since 2001.

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. GVSU regrouped and notched a 33-14 win at Northwood to

STORIED TRADITION 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.

STORIED TRADITION 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.

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.

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.

By Percentage


From Grand Valley State's first all-american in 1973 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 each season with the exception of 2011. 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 141 games, four national championships, completed five undefeated regular seasons and won more games than any other Division I FBS, Division IFCS, and Division II football team in the country. The Lakers 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 held the longest active streak for playoff appearances in Division II at 10. GVSU appeared in the playoffs every year from 2001 through 2010. Grand Valley held a 27-5 record during the 10-year 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 six quarterbacks since 1996 and if you go all the way back to 1985, 11 primary signal callers have lined up under center. Four of GVSU’s last five 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 No NCAA DII program has produced as many All-Americans as Grand Valley State since 2001. Curt Anes, Dale Westrick, David Kircus, Reggie Spearmon, Josh Bourke are just a few of the Lakers that built the decade of dominance. Lucius Hawkins, Scott Mackey, Eric Fowler, Brandon Langston, Keyonta Marshall and Mike McFadden continued the individual accolades. Grand Valley State’s 2012 squad will again have a number of players that could garner post-season honors. Matt Armstrong, Charles Johnson, Erik Thompson and Tim Lelito are 2012 preseason all-america candidates.


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 NAIA 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.


“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 13 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. The Laker football team logged over 3,000 hours of community service during the 201112 academic year at various charitable organizations 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/MLive, which is read by over 1,000,000 state wide on a daily basis. In addition, the Holland Sentinel, Grand Haven Tribune, the Lansing State Journal, the Detroit News and the Detroit Free Press cover the Laker football program. All of Grand Valley State’s home games are shown live on the internet and on TV throughout the State of Michigan on Comcast Cable. GVSU has also been on the ESPN family of networks nine times in the last nine 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 .818 winning percentage in those 39 seasons. Lubbers Stadium is the focal point of the Laker football program. Since its construction it has seen many additions to improve the facilities. Including the 2012 renovations, which included lowering the field eight feet and taking out the track to add four rows that form a horseshoe. 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: 159-34-1 All-Time Home Playoff Record: 16-3 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 74-4 record at home when ranked and has won 11 straight home openers.


LAKERS IN THE PROS Cameron Bradfield (Jaguars) was the latest Laker to join the NFL ranks in 2011. 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. Bradfield, 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 five Lakers on NFL or CFL rosters heading into the fall; Brandon Carr (Cowboys), Dan Skuta (Bengals), Nick McDonald (Patriots), Cam Bradfield (Jaguars), and Josh Bourke (Alouettes). OL Josh Bourke is also playing in one of the premier professional leagues, the CFL. Bourke was picked up by the Montreal Alouettes after a short stint in the NFL. He has been successful in his native Canada, having been named to the CFL All-Star team three straight years and helped to lead his team to a Grey Cup titles each of the last two years.

THE GVSU FOOTBALL COACHING TREE Miami (OH) is known as the Cradle of Coaches for producing successful football coaches. GVSU’s tradition has been building its own legacy and here are just some current big-name coaches with roots that extend back to Allendale. When GVSU’s football coaches tell recruits they have a chance to receive some of best coaching in the country, they can point to former GVSU coaches to prove the claim. Grand Valley claims to have great football history and tradition, and that extends beyond just players who make it to the NFL. There are currently a number of coaches experiencing success on a big stage after playing their role in building one of the best football programs in NCAA Division II. Two of the biggest names at two of the biggest programs in the nation have ties back to GVSU. Brady Hoke was a part of the all-time winningest NCAA Division II program in 1983, and now he’s at the helm of the winningest NCAA Division I program at Michigan. Brian Kelly directed the Lakers to national championships in 2002 and 2003, and now he’s in charge of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish as they look to return to national prominence.

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.

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.

Allendale, mich. - Grand Valley State will make its second straight trip to Florence, Alabama for the NCAA DII National Championship game after rolling past Northern Colorado 44-7 in Saturday's semifinal matchup at Lubbers Stadium. The Lakers jumped out to a 24-0 halftime lead and never looked back as GVSU recorded its 22nd straight home victory. Senior Harlon Hill candidate Curt Anes hooked up with AllAmerican WR David Kircus on four of the Laker touchdowns, while Reggie Spearmon added the other two scores. GVSU, which has been ranked #1 all season, will play #2 Valdosta State in next week's National Championship on Saturday, December 14th, at 4:00 pm EST. GVSU took the opening kickoff 65 yards in 11 plays, culiminated by Spearmon's 3-yard TD run. The Lakers drove 89 yards in 13 plays as Kircus and Anes hooked up for the first of their four pass-catch TDs. The first covered 16 yards. Kircus and Anes hooked up again, this time from 24 yards out at the 8:18 mark of the second quarter to put GVSU up 21-0. Anes scrambled around for near 10 seconds before finding Kircus. PK David Hendrix drilled a 24-yard field goal with 2:26 left in the second quarter to give GVSU a 24-0 lead.

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."

A-5521 Allendale, Mich. - #1 Ranked Grand Valley State scored 34 first-quarter points and cruised to a 55-20 NCAA DII National Semifinal victory at Lubbers Stadium in Allendale Saturday afternoon. Grand Valley State will now appear in its fourth NCAA DII National Championship game in the last five years. GVSU lost the 2001 title game, but won back-to-back DII National Championships in 2002 and 2003. "I'm so proud of how this team has competed and played together as a team for 15 weeks," said second-year head coach Chuck Martin. "This group is so close on both sides of the ball and they compete with one another to make each other better," added Martin. Grand Valley State took the opening kickoff and drove 87 yards in seven plays for a a TD. Brandon Langston finished the drive with an 18 yard TD run at the 11:39 mark of the first quarter. Langston continued his stellar play when he blocked a punt on East Stroudsburg's second straight three and out. QB Cullen Finnerty found Langston all alone over the middle in endzone for a 22-yard TD and a 14-0 Laker lead. That was the first of four consecutive touchdowns for the Lakers. 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. Grand Valley State put the finishing touches on an incredible first quarter when Finnerty hit Langston on a fly pattern that covered 81 yards on the final play of the first quarter for a score. 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.). RB Ryan Hukill put GVSU up 41-0 with 8:20 left in the second quarter when he finished

a 9-play, 79-yard drive with a 5-yard shovel pass for a TD. East Stroudsburg's only points in the first half came following a Finnerty interception that was returned to the Laker 20. Jim Terwilliger ran it in from two yards out for the Warriors first score. GVSU's 41 first half points were the second most in a half for a playoff game behind the 51 put up against Indiana (Pa.) in 2002. GVSU sacked Terwilliger seven times in the opening 30 minutes and limited the Warriors to just 150 yards of total offense. ESU was held to -1 yard rushing on 17 carries and Terwilliger completed just 10-of-27 passes for 151 yards. GVSU dominated the game offensively, racking up 409 yards of total offense. Finnerty completed 10-of-14 passes for 241 yards and three TDs, while Astin Martin rushed for 73 yards and one TD on 14 carries. Langston caught four passes for 148 yards and two TDs, while rushing for 18 yards and one TD. Martin opened the second half with a 44 yard TD run to put the Lakers up 48-7. Martin's TD run capped a 5-play, 82-yard scoring drive. ESU added third and fourth quarter TDs, but GVSU's Brandon Carr returned an onside kick 47 yards for the final score of the day. GVSU ran the ball 26 times in the second half and attempted just one pass. GVSU rolled up 562 yards of total offense on the day, including 320 rushing and 242 passing. The Laker starting offensive unit finished its day midway through the third quarter. Martin broke the 100-yard rushing mark for the ninth time this season with 134 yards and two TDs on 18 carries. Ryan Hukill rushed for 90 yards on nine carries, while Mark Catlin chipped in 51 yards on nine carries. Finnerty completed 10-fo-14 passes for 241 yards and three TDs, while rushing for 39 yards on four carries. The Laker defense was dominating, sacking the Harlon Hill Finalist, Jimmy Terwilliger, 10 times for a -42 yards. ESU finished with 10 net rushing yards. Terwilliger completed 24-of-47 passes for 287 yards and two TDs, with most of that yardage coming when the outcome of the game was already decided. Sophomore LB Anthony Adams recorded 10 tackles, three tackles for loss (-20) and two QB sacks (-19). Kirk Carruth chipped in seven tackles and sack, while Dan Skuta added six tackles and a QB sack. All-American and Gene Upshaw Award finalist Mike McFadden tallied five tackles, four tackles for loss (-13) and three QB sacks (-12).

Grand Valley, ranked No. 1 in national Division II polls, ended its season 13-0. “It’s been a great season,” said Joe Ballard of Chesaning, who helped make the game-ending tackle. “I’ll miss everyone here. I hope they go get it again next year.”

field. They made it to the 17 but Lamberson was chased out of bounds by Rory Steinbach and Justin Ulberg for a loss on third down with just one second remaining. Northwest Missouri used its last timeout to set up the final play. Robinson was wide open briefly, but the defense swarmed after the ball and kept him out of the end zone. “I was very confident,” Lamberson said Saturday night. “That’s been the motto of our team - our backs against the wall. And they’ve been against the wall all year. So when we got in that huddle, it was like last week. We were very confident that we were going to move the ball down the field and score.”

Senior wide receiver Brandon Langston of Northville caught a 35-yard touchdown pass from junior quarterback Cullen Finnerty of Brighton with 4:25 left for the winning score. Finnerty moved Grand Valley 82 yards after taking over midway through the fourth quarter. He converted three thirddown plays on the drive. On third-and-four, he hit Langston on a slant pattern, and the receiver raced 35 yards for a score with 4:25 to play. “They gave me an inch of space and I got great blocks from Antoine Trent and Jeremy Cochrane,” Langston said. “I had the easy part, I just had to catch it and run down the field.” Ballard said he had one thing on his mind on the game’s last play. “I just wanted to keep him (Robinson) out of the end zone,” the Lakers safety said. “That was the biggest thing. We wanted to make sure we made the tackle.” Martin, the defensive coordinator of the first two championship teams, said each national title celebration has been enjoyable. “The journey is too far and still a lot of fun,” he said. It’s never old hat. If we go there again in the future, that moment would be just as special.” Northwest Missouri (11-4) was the first team to win four straight road playoff games, but lost for the first time in three championship game appearances. The Bearcats made the championship game with Raphael Robinson’s only touchdown catch of the season, a three-yarder with 23 seconds left to beat North Alabama the previous week, also at Braly Municipal Stadium. Coach Mel Tjeerdsma practically assumed Robinson would score and his team would pull out another improbable win. “I felt like we were going to win the game until he didn’t get in the end zone,” Tjeerdsma said. “I didn’t have any doubts.”

Florence, Ala. - Celebrating a national championship is starting to become routine for Grand Valley State football fans. More than 200 fans greeted the Lakers at the Grand Valley Fieldhouse Sunday, a day after the team won the school’s third NCAA Division II national championship in four years. After flying into Grand Rapids, coach Chuck Martin and his team were on campus for the first time since their 21-17 victory over Northwest Missouri State on Saturday in Florence, Ala. “We want to thank all our great fans and friends,” Martin said. “We have the best fans in Division II by far.” The Lakers, who also won the national title in 2002 and 2003, were runners-up in 2001. Martin pointed out that all four games came down “to the last tick of the clock.” On the last play of Saturday’s game, from the Lakers’ 22-yard line, Northwest Missouri quarterback Josh Lamberson rolled right and hit Raphael Robinson inside the 5 on the opposite side of the field. Robinson spun, but the Lakers brought him down four yards short to end the 81-yard drive and clinch the national championship. “We wanted to make sure it wasn’t a boring game for you,” Martin joked to Lakers fans. “I told the team that we wanted to make sure that another game came down to the end. Obviously, we found a way to make that last play.” Lamberson completed five consecutive passes to move the Bearcats down-

Allendale, Mich. - Sweet Home Alabama. Grand Valley State will be making its fifth NCAA DII National Championship game appearance in the last six years after claiming an impressive 49-30 victory over Delta State Sunday night at Lubbers Stadium in Allendale. GVSU (14-0) will play Northwest Missouri State (14-0) in the National Championship game Saturday (Dec. 16) in Florence, Alabama. The game is a rematch of the 2005 final in which GVSU claimed a 21-17 victory in the title game. The Laker offense started quickly following a Delta State punt down to the GVSU 11 yard line. RB Astin Martin carried the ball for 19 yards on the first play, followed by a 40-yard completion from Cullen Finnerty to WR Eric Fowler. Finnerty then found WR Terry Mitchell quarantined in the corner of the endzone for a 30-yard TD reception. The drive covered 89 yards in three plays and took just 45 ticks off the clock. Delta State drove 63 yards in nine plays late in the first quarter, but failed to score when Sid Halliday's 35-yard field goal attempt sailed wide left. The Lakers wasted little time while looking for another score. Finnerty hit Fowler with a 53-yard pass and catch on the first play, then found Mitchell again, this time all alone in the left corner of the endzone on the very next play for a 27yard TD reception. The drive took 35 seconds and covered 80 yards in two plays. Delta State regrouped and took advantage of a GVSU fumble for its first points of the game. Finnerty was sacked and fumbled the ball on his own 8-yard line. Delta State QB Scott Eyster hit WR Eric Marshall on the second play for a 7yard TD reception. Delta State's special teams then took advantage of another Laker miscue. The Statesmen blocked a Laker punt and Chad Schroeder recovered it the endzone for another Statesmen score to tie the game at 14-14.

Mark Catlin sparked the Lakers, returning the kickoff 44 yards to the 49. Astin Martin toted the ball for 16 yards on the first play and Finnerty found Fowler again, this one covering 21 yards. Preston Garris carried the ball for a 4-yard run before Finnerty hit Antione Trent with a 10-yard TD pass. The Laker defense made a key play on DSU's next possession as LB Kirk Carruth picked off a Scott Eyster pass at Delta State 48. Following a Laker penalty and 22-yard rush by Finnerty, GVSU faced a 4th-and-1 on the Delta State 39. Chuck Martin rolled the dice and went for it on fourth down. Finnerty looked for Fowler down the right sideline, but a DSU defender had it hit off his pads into the hands of Fowler for a 35-yard completion. Finnerty found Trent over the middle and GVSU led 28-14 at the half. Leading 28-14, the Laker offense made a statment with its opening drive of the second half. Finnerty guided GVSU on a 7-play, 67-yard scoring drive that took 3:11 off the clock. Finnerty hit freshman receiver Blake Smolen with a short pass that Smolen took the final 8 yards for a score and a 35-14 Laker lead. GVSU's special teams had its second punt blocked, this one went out of the endzone for a safety and Delta State trailed 35-16. However, the quick strike Laker offense struck again, this drive covering 59-yards in three plays. Finnerty completed passes of 29 yards to Mitchell and 22 yards to Fowler for a TD and a 42-16 GVSU lead.

Florence, AL. - Grand Valley State claimed its fourth NCAA DII National Championship in the last five years Saturday afternoon at Braly Municipal Stadium with its 17-14 victory over Northwest Missouri State in the title game. GVSU finished the year 15-0, becoming just the second team in NCAA DII history to go 15-0 in a season. Cullen Finnerty's 4-yard TD run with 13:06 left in the game proved to be the game-winner and he engineered a 7-play, 19-yard drive that ran out the clock for the victory in the fourth quarter. Finnerty carried the ball three times for 12 yards and completed two passes for nine yards on the closing drive. Finnerty completed a 4-yard pass to Eric Fowler on thirdand-two to seal the win. Finnerty's game-winning drive started after the Laker defense forced a three-and-out deep in NW Missouri State territory. The Bearcats were pinned deep in their own territory after Bill Brechin downed a Justin Trumble punt at the NWMST 2-yard line. Kyle Johnson's punt went out of bounds at the NWMST 36-yard line to give the Lakers good field position and set up the game winning drive. Astin Martin started the drive with a 5-yard carry and Finnerty then completed a 17-yard pass to Antion Trent. Finnerty carried the ball 4-yards to the Bearcat 10 and Martin then toted the ball to the three before Finnerty capped the drive with his TD run. "These guys just kept playing for 60 minutes and found a way to win another game," said GVSU head coach Chuck Martin. The Laker defense came up big late in the game when Matt Beaty forced a fumble that Bill Brechin recovered at the Laker 21 with 3:15 left in the game. GVSU picked up two first downs and ran out the clock. Junior corner Bill Brechin kept the Lakers in the game in the first quarter. He picked off a pass in the endzone on NW Missouri's first possession, then picked off another pass at the Laker seven to foil another drive. "Bill Brechin made four game changing plays in the game and those two first quarter interceptions kept us in the game," said GVSU head coach Chuck Martin. Grand Valley State got on the board first early in the second quarter. Todd Carter hit a 30-yard field goal after Finnerty drove the Lakers 67yards in 11 plays. The Bearcats answered quickly, driving 80-yards in 8-plays. Kendall Wright hit Rafael Robinson with a 26-yard halfback pass to give NW Missouri its first lead. The lead was shortlived as Finnerty drove GVSU 70-yards in 11plays for a score. Finnerty found Fowler all alone in the left corner of the endzone for a 2-yard TD pass. Finnerty rushed for 33 yards on the drive and completed three passes for 37 yards. Todd Carter added the PAT for a 10-7 Laker lead. NW Missouri State appeared to be going in for a score late in the first half, but junior corner Brandon Carr picked off the Lakers' third pass of the first half when he stepped in front of a Josh Mathews pass at the goal line with 2:11 left in the second quarter. GVSU gave the Bearcats the ball deep in its own end following a low snap that Justin Trumble went down to field and put his knee down. NWMST needed five plays to go 25 yards for the score and a 14-10 lead. Cullen Finnerty completed 15-of-33 passes for 225 yards and rushed for 115 yards on 22 carries for 340 yards of total offense. Finnerty passed for one TD and ran for another. Finnerty became the first QB in NCAA DII Championship game history to pass for over 200 yards (225 passing) and rush for over 100 (115). Astin Martin rushed for 40 yards on 12 carries. Eric Fowler caught seven passes for 96 yards, despite missing almost all of the second half with a hamstring injury. Terry Mitchell caught two passes for 55 yards. John Mathews added two receptions for 24 yards, Sean Stevens one for 19 yards and Preston Garris one for 17 yards. Matt Beaty led the defense with a season-high 12 tackles, while senior Mike McFadden chipped in seven stops. Dan Skuta added seven stops and Samad Cain six.
