2008 PRE-SEASON FOOTBALL MEDIA GUIDE

2008 SEASON OUTLOOK After finishing the 2007 season with a 5-5 overall record, the Kansas Wesleyan University Coyotes and head coach Dave Dallas hope to return to the top of the conference in 2008. Dallas is banking on a strong returning group on offense and a more experienced and matured defensive unit to provide immediate dividends for the Coyotes in 2008. Dallas the rest of the Coyotes also hope that a more balanced attack on the offensive side of the ball will open up the offensive attack and provide more opportunities. After two years of a decidedly rush-based offense, Wesleyan returned to a more balanced offense in 2007, only rushing for 56 percent of its total offense last season, as opposed to a 75-25 ratio in 2006 and a 67-33 ratio in 2005.

OFFENSIVE OUTLOOK – 11 RETURNING PLAYERS WITH STARTING EXPERIENCE Kansas Wesleyan returns its entire offensive unit from a season ago. Dallas and the coaching staff feel that this group, which holds a lot of talent potential, combined with the fact that the group has been together for an entire season sets up a potentially very good year with the ball. “We had a lot of talent of the offensive side of the ball last year,” Dallas said. “We weren’t very productive with ball, especially in the red zone. We just couldn’t score.” The numbers speak the same words. KWU’s total offensive numbers were just 36 yards less than in 2006, but the Coyotes scored 38 less points (268 in 2006, 230 in 2007) than the 2006 squad that went 8-2 overall. With a lot of returners and a more consistent, balanced attack, Wesleyan’s offense could flourish. Leading the way on the offensive unit is returning tailback Preston McCorkle (6-1, 225, Sr., Stratton, Colo. / Fort Hays State (Kan.)). McCorkle rushed for 1014 yards last season, tied for the best in the KCAC with Friends’ Trey Hightower. McCorkle went on to earn First Team All-KCAC honors last season. Outside of McCorkle being the top returner carrying the ball, Dallas also sees that Tyler Zachman (5-9, 175, So., Russell, Kan. / Russell HS) will get some chances after a good spring. Dallas is also counting on several incoming transfers to provide added depth at the tailback position, including Jacob Winship, Ray Parker and Jeremy Washington. Winship (6-1, 225, Jr., Yuba City, Calif. / Yuba College (Calif.)), led his team in rushing and scoring last season at Yuba College, while earning Honorable Mention All-Northern California Football Association honors. He rushed for just over 68 yards per game in a balanced offense that had two 60+ yard per game rushers. Parker (5-8, 200, Jr., Montclair, Va. / Butler CC (Kan.)) comes to Kansas Wesleyan after attending Butler CC in El Dorado. Before Butler, he was at St. John’s Military School in Salina. Washington (5-8, 200, So., Wharton, Texas / Blinn JC (Texas)) also looks to fit into the mix somewhere at tailback after transferring in after a season at Blinn Junior College in Texas. At halfback, Brad Cintas (6-0, 225, Sr., Santa Clara, Calif. / Gavilan CC (Calif.)), will lead the way of the returners. He averaged just under ten yards per game rushing last season, but had eight catches for 42 yards and two touchdowns. Newcomers ready to fit into the mix are Kyle Barthel (5-10, 240, Jr., Bellingham, Wash. / Shasta College (Calif.)), Ryan Shelton (5-11, 210, Fr., Palm Harbor, Fla. / Palm Harbor University HS), the younger brother of linebacker Pat Shelton and Dane McCoy (5-10, 225, Jr., Discovery Bay, Calif. / Los Medanos College (Calif.)). Senior returnee Marcus Lowe (6-2, 185, Sr., Orlando, Fla. / Graceland (Iowa)) leads a very talented group at wide receiver. The three-time Honorable Mention All-KCAC selection is within striking distance of Steve Willis’ career marks in total receptions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns. After catching 36 balls for 522 yards and five scores last year, Lowe is just 37 catches, 454 yards and eight touchdown grabs away from Willis’ marks. “Marcus will have a good year,” Dallas said. “Again it’s another guy that’s been in the program for a long time and understands our philosophy and works hard. Our receivers have a chance to make a big impact this year. With Marcus, Jason Dolan and Steve Valliere returning, along with our newcomers, we’ll be very good, very explosive.” Returning at receiver to compliment Lowe are Dolan (6-0, 180, Sr., Salina, Kan. / Fort Hays State (Kan.)) and Valliere (5-10, 200, Sr., Redding, Calif. / Shasta College (Calif.)). Dolan earned Honorable Mention All-KCAC honors last year, grabbing 21 balls for 395 yards and four touchdowns. Valliere moves to the slot position out of the backfield last year. Newcomers at receiver will compliment the strong group of returners, including Aaron Miller (6-2, 190, Jr., Deerfield, Kan. / Garden City CC (Kan.)) and a group of incoming freshmen that Dallas calls “one of the best we’ve had in a long time.” The quarterback position is solid with returning senior Drew Dallas (6-3, 215, Sr., Salina, Kan. / Fort Hays State (Kan.)) leading the way. Dallas threw for over 1400 yards last season, ranking third in the conference at 140.9 yards per game. A couple of freshmen have a chance to challenge Dallas at quarterback, including Johnny Park (6-1, 180, Fr., San Antonio, Texas / Antonian College Prep HS) and Chase Wilson (5-8, 165, Fr., Childress, Texas / Childress HS). Park starred at Antonian College Prep, passing for over 1400 yards with a 64 percent completion rate, and rushed for over 400 yards his senior season. Dallas and company got a good look at Wilson, as he played in the Greenbelt Bowl this summer, which Dallas and other Wesleyan coaches help at. Dallas is also confident in the tight end having a more active role in the offense this season. Returning after missing last year with a back injury is Eric

KANSAS WESLEYAN UNIVERSITY COYOTES

Thrush (6-5, 255, Jr., Janesville, Calif. / Shasta College (Calif.)). Dallas sees opportunity for Thrush, Britton Smallwood and Dan Reynolds to all compete for the starting nod at tight end. Smallwood (6-3, 265, Fr., Canton, Texas / Stephen F. Austin (Texas)) comes to Wesleyan after a redshirt year at Stephen F. Austin, and Reynolds (6-2, 250, Jr., Sacramento, Calif. / American River College (Calif.)), who was recruited by the Coyotes in 2006 is back. The offensive line remains virtually intact from a year ago, with some players returning from injury who will make an immediate benefit to the line. Returning players include Matt Fulton (6-3, 300, Sr., Ridgecrest, Calif. / Victor Valley College (Calif.)); Mark Robinson (6-1, 275, Sr., Gardena, Calif. / LA Harbor College (Calif.)); Viliamu Iosua (6-2, 300, Sr., Richmond, Calif. / Conta Costa College (Calif.)); Taylor Hurd (6-6, 315, Sr., Garden City, Kan. / Garden City CC (Kan.)); Schuyler Wilson (6-1, 305, Jr., Shasta Lake, Calif. / Shasta College (Calif.)); Sean Junkins (6-4, 315, Jr., Malibu, Calif. / El Camino College (Calif.)) and Will Slasor (6-3, 280, So., San Antonio, Texas / Taft HS).

DEFENSIVE OUTLOOK – 9 RETURNING PLAYERS WITH STARTING EXPERIENCE Last year’s defensive unit was banged up often, but what was a bad situation last year could potentially be good for Wesleyan this fall. Sixteen returning players started at some point or another during the season, and that experience last year will pay dividends on the field this year. “We return a lot of players on defense,” Dallas said. “Our defense will be better this year, we matured as a defensive squad and our recruiting helped us out a lot.” The defensive line remains virtually intact from a season ago, flanked by ends Scott Moore (6-5, 265, Sr., Chicago, Ill. / College of the Canyons (Calif.)) and Dustin Trimble (6-0, 235, Sr., Hopland, Calif. / Mendocino College (Calif.)), and the interior linemen of Matt Case (6-4, 255, Nunn, Colo. / Highland HS) and a host of others. Dallas is also optimistic on the return of Spencer Popple, (6-0, 225, So., Junction City, Kan. / Junction City HS) who missed most of the season last year with an injury. He also looks to incoming players Charles Starling (6-0, 308, Jr., Easton, Texas / Navarro JC (Texas)); Joe LaLone (5-10, 290, Jr., San Diego, Calif. / San Diego Mesa College (Calif.)) and Dustin Hoffer (6-5, 265, Jr., Topeka, Kan. / Independence CC (Kan.)) to help the cause on the defensive line. “We have that depth perspective back that we haven’t had the last couple years up front,” Dallas said. In the defensive backfield, the Coyotes have a big hole to fill with the loss of All-KCAC performer Willie Johnson, but a strong group of returning players have the potential to fill the void. Returners Branden Edward (5-11, 175, So., Humble, Texas / Humble HS), Corey Tate (5-10, 170, So., Irving, Texas / Nimitz HS) and Tim Feaster (5-10, 180, So., Chico, Calif. / Chico HS) will all see considerable playing time at cornerback, along with Kendrick Mitchell (5-11, 180, So., Humble, Texas / Humble HS), who redshirted last year. Newcomers Shea Harding (5-9, 180, Jr., Emeryville, Calif. / Contra Costa College (Calif.)) and Eric Davis (5-9, 180, Jr., Shawnee Mission, Kan. / Fort Scott CC (Kan.)) should fit into the mix somewhere at cornerback as well. The linebacker position also has some spots to fill with the losses of Brandon McGinn and Colten Campbell to graduation, however, returning players Pat Shelton (6-3, 220, So., Palm Harbor, Fla. / Palm Harbor University HS), Mike Vaughan (5-11, 205, Jr., Richardson, Texas / Richardson HS) and Marcus Seirer (5-11, 195, So., Wakefield, Kan. / Wakefield HS) will all see time along with incoming player Vince Arellano (5-10, 220, Jr., Pittsburg, Calif. / Los Medanos College (Calif.)), who transferred to Wesleyan from Los Medanos College. “If you look at things, we started 16 guys throughout the year on defense, there’s a flip side to that this year,” Dallas said. “It ought to pay off this year because we are a more experienced defensive team because of that fact.”

SPECIAL TEAMS OUTLOOK Kansas Wesleyan will have to turn to a new foot to highlight its special teams game this year after USC transfer Troy Van Blarcom declared himself eligible for the NFL draft last winter. Dallas again turned to the California junior college circuit to bring in a kicker for 2008. Scotty McKeon (5-10, 180, Jr., Rohnert Park, Calif. / Santa Rosa JC (Calif.)) will take over the punting and kicking duties for the Coyotes this season. McKeon led Santa Rosa in scoring in 2007, converting 60-of-61 PAT attempts and was 5-for-5 on field goals. He also punted for the Bear Cubs, averaging 33.7 yards per punt. Austin Cochran (6-5, 210, Fr., Brownwood, Texas / Early HS) has a chance to challenge McKeon for punting duties. Pat Shelton returns for long snapping duties after not being able to snap during the 2007 season due to a broken hand. Jason Dolan will handle punt return duties for a second straight season after finishing the 2007 ranked third in the KCAC in punt return average. Kendrick Mitchell has a chance to fit into the return game somewhere, as does Corey Tate. Steve Valliere returns to handle kick return duties in 2008. His explosiveness is no secret as Dallas calls him one of the best kick returners in the NAIA. “Steve is a definite threat in the return game,” Dallas said. “With his explosive speed and agility, he is a threat to take it to the house anytime.” Wesleyan kicks off the 2008 season on September 13 in North Newton against Bethel College. “I am very optimistic about the upcoming season,” Dallas said. “We have the opportunity to be very good this season.”

THE KANSAS COLLEGIATE ATHLETIC CONFERENCE (KCAC) The Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference, commonly called “The Kansas Conference,” is a prominent intercollegiate athletics conference comprised of ten outstanding independent or private institutions of higher education in the state. The origins of the KCAC are traced to February 15, 1890, when the Kansas Intercollegiate Athletic Association became the result of the first successful attempt at organization among Kansas colleges, “to promote and regulate amateur intercollegiate athletics.” At that time the association or conference included not only private universities and colleges but also Kansas Agriculture College (now KSU), Kansas University, and Washburn University. Football seems to have been the major sponsored sport, and Baker University won the championship for the first three or four years. In about 1902 this early association became allied with the Kansas College Athletic Conference, a group which was the first to adopt a definite set of rules and regulations. It also promoted an annual track and field meet which has continued yearly since, except for World War years. Basketball has been sponsored since 1904. Football was revived in 1907. Tennis began as early as 1912. Golf was added in 1923. By this time the name of the conference had been altered to the Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference; it had grown to 17 college members and two allied members: Baker, Bethany, Bethel, College of Emporia, Fairmount (now WSU), Friends, Kansas Wesleyan, KSTC of Emporia (now ESU), KSTC of Hays (now FHSU), KSTC of Pittsburg (now PSU), McPherson, Ottawa, St.Benedict’s (now Benedictine), St.Mary’s, Sterling (formerly Cooper), Southwestern, and Washburn, and with St.John’s and Kansas City University (Kansas) as allied members. Kansas University and Kansas Aggies had dropped out earlier to join other conferences. In 1923 the College of Emporia, KSTC of Emporia, KSTC of Hays, KSTC of Pittsburg, Wichita (formerly Fairmount), Southwestern, and Washburn withdrew to form the Central Conference. The present legal entity comes from a reorganization of the conference when the predecessor Kansas Intercollegiate Athletic Conference formally disbanded on December 1, 1928, and a new conference was formed which again was called the Kansas College Athletic Conference. The members were Baker, Bethany, Kansas Wesleyan, McPherson, Ottawa, and St.Mary’s colleges. At that time sportswriters quickly gave the KCAC league a nickname: the “Little Six,” in contrast to the Big Six (which became Big Eight, now Big 12) which also was organized in 1928. St.Mary’s College was discontinued in 1931. The College of Emporia returned to the fold in 1933, and Bethel was readmitted in 1939. Friends, a former member of the KIAC, was admitted in 1953. Sterling and Southwestern were approved for membership in 1958. In 1968 Tabor College and St. Mary of the Plains College were admitted to make twelve members in the conference, and the conference was organized into Southern and Northern divisions until 1970 — when Baker, College of Emporia, and Ottawa withdrew to join two separate Missouri-based conferences. In the mid-1970s the formal name was changed again to Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference. In 1975 women’s intercollegiate athletics were incorporated into programs of the KCAC. Ottawa was readmitted in 1981, bringing the conference membership to 10. In 1992 St.Mary of the Plains College in Dodge City left the conference and eventually closed. In 1999, Saint Mary College (now University of Saint Mary) joined to return the KCAC membership to ten institutions. The “Kansas Conference” (KCAC) continues to be an all-Kansas conference. The KCAC is an affiliated conference of the National Association of intercollegiate Athletics with headquarters in Kansas City, Mo.. Today the KCAC sponsors conference intercollegiate athletics in football, volleyball, men’s cross country, women’s cross country, men’s soccer, women’s soccer, men’s basketball, women’s basketball, men’s indoor track and field, women’s indoor track and field, men’s outdoor track and field, women’s outdoor track and field, baseball, softball, golf, women’s tennis, men’s tennis. The KCAC is a widely respected conference which governs intercollegiate athletics in cooperation with the NAIA.

THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF INTERCOLLEGIATE ATHLETICS (NAIA) “The first general session of the `Organizing Convention’ of the National Association of Intercollegiate Basketball (NAIB) was held in the Phillips Hotel, Kansas City, Missouri, at 10 a.m., Sunday, March 10, 1940.” But the seed from which the NAIB sprouted was planted two blocks away at Municipal Auditorium. It was there in 1937 that a men’s basketball tournament tipped off which has become the longest continuous national collegiate tournament in any sport. The tournament was the brainchild of Emil S. Liston, Dr. James Naismith, Frank Cramer, and a group of Kansas City business leaders who wanted to provide Kansas City-area fans with exciting amateur competition and to provide a framework for small colleges and universities to determine a national basketball champion. In 1948, the NAIB affirmed its commitment to equality by becoming the first national organization to offer intercollegiate postseason opportunities to black student-athletes. Unprecedented action was taken in 1953 when historically black institutions were voted into membership. One year previous to the inclusion of historically black institutions, another form of expansion occurred. In 1952, as a result of the expressed desires of the member institutions, appropriate steps were taken by which the NAIB was transformed into the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA), and the first all-encompassing set of rules and standards was adopted. Recommendations to take this important action were made by the National Executive Committee at the annual meeting after determining the move was desirable and feasible. The recommendation was later approved by a mail vote of the entire membership. With the Association’s new name came the addition of national championships in golf, tennis and outdoor track and field. Football, cross country, baseball and swimming and diving were added to the championships calendar in 1956. Wrestling (1958), soccer (1959), bowling (1962-78), gymnastics (1964-84), indoor track and field (1966) and men’s volleyball (1969-80) were later additions. Two major changes were made during the 1970s. An extensive study was completed in 1970 which paved the way for two divisions of football. Four teams qualified for the playoffs in each division at the outset and, later, 16 teams were selected for postseason play. In 1997, football was consolidated to one division again as the Football Coaches Association cited a narrowing gap between enrollment size and philosophy of the two divisions. As the NAIA moved into its second half-century in the 1980s, it revolutionized national collegiate athletics with the establishment of athletics programs for women on August 1, 1980. Official notice on that date followed a mail vote by the membership on May 1 that supported becoming the first organization to offer collegiate athletics to both men and women. The championship calendar for women began that year with basketball, cross country, gymnastics, indoor and outdoor track and field, softball, tennis and volleyball. Soccer was added in 1984, and golf was included in 1995. Gymnastics was discontinued after the 1988 championship. Another important chapter in the history of the NAIA unfolded in 1992 when the Association voted to move its headquarters from Kansas City to Tulsa. Moving with the national office was the Division I Men’s Basketball National Championship which had been held in Kansas City for 56 years. In 1993, the waves of change once again washed over the Association. The membership voted to discontinue the use of district play as a means of qualification for national championships, marking the first time since the NAIA’s creation that district competition would not be used. In 1999, the NAIA restructured to include 14 regions to better serve its membership. Each region is governed by a regional management committee comprised of various conference and independent representatives. In 2000, the NAIA reaffirmed its purpose to enhance the character-building aspects of sport. Through Champions of Character, the NAIA seeks to create an environment in which every student-athlete, coach, official and spectator is committed to the true spirit of competition through five tenets: respect, integrity, responsibility, servant leadership and sportsmanship. This program will educate and create awareness of the positive characterbuilding traits afforded by sports and return integrity to competition at the collegiate and youth levels while impacting all of society. Everything has come full circle. The NAIA relocated its National Office in July of 2001 to Olathe, Kansas, just miles from Gardner where the idea for the small-college basketball tournament gave rise to the NAIA. Now, nearly 65 years after that initial tournament, the NAIA Division I Men’s Basketball National Championship is returning to Municipal Auditorium, the arena that was home to so many memories from 1927-74. In Summer 2007, the NAIA relocated its National Office to downtown Kansas City, Mo. The NAIA has 50,000 student-athletes participating at nearly 300 member colleges and universities throughout the United States and Canada. Divided into 14 regions, the NAIA offers 23 championships in 13 sports. Since 1937, the NAIA has continued a long tradition of pushing the envelope and making a positive difference in the lives of students, coaches and parents. The Champions of Character program is the latest cutting-edge addition to the NAIA’s proud history of innovation. Through Champions of Character, the NAIA seeks to create an environment in which every student-athlete, coach, official and spectator are committed to the true spirit of competition through the five core values: respect, integrity, responsibility, servant leadership and sportsmanship.

KANSAS WESLEYAN UNIVERSITY COYOTES

A BRIEF HISTORY OF KANSAS WESLEYAN FOOTBALL 1893 - 2008 Kansas Wesleyan University celebrates its 115th year of football this season. Kansas Wesleyan’s football history is a storied one, one of great coaches, great players, and great FOOTBALL HISTORY QUICK FACTS First Year of Football ................................................................1893 teams. Seasons ..............................................................................................98 It all began in 1893, as the “Wesleyans” as they were known back then, took to the field Overall Record ...................................................389-424-39 (.478) experimenting with one of the newest intercollegiate sports sweeping the nation, football. KCAC Record ......................................................275-264-22 (.510) Kansas Wesleyan played its first ever game against the high school team from Abilene on KCAC Championships .......................................13 (Last in 2002) November 6, 1893. KWU was victorious 14-2. The November 7, 1893, edition of the Salina Daily Republican claimed, “WESLEYAN WINS! The Abilene team gets some pointers on foot Bowl Appearances ...........................................................................1 ball...” Just one week later, the team traveled south to Lindsborg to play the Bethany Swedes. ....................................................(American Family Charity, 2000) Kansas Wesleyan also showed the Bethany boys a thing or two about the game as they NAIA Championship Series Berths .............................................2 clobbered them 48-0. The Coyotes then entertained Abilene again and then Chapman on ...........................................................................................(2001, 2002) consecutive days, coming out victorious in both contests. The final recorded contest of the NAIA Championship Series Record ........................................ 0-2 inaugural season was against the tough Baker University team, which stopped in town on its way back from beating the Denver State College team. Baker beat KWU 44-0, and Wesleyan finished the first year with a 4-1 record. A nationwide effort to suppress football because of its brutality hit Salina and the school’s administration banished the sport from the campus for five years. Changes to the rules of football, along with a renewed interest at KWU and nationwide brought the sport back to Wesleyan in 1899. Kansas Wesleyan football sputtered the next few years, being cancelled three times for lack of interest and protests by members of the KWU administration, who still detested the sport for its lack of class and civilization, and once for World War I in 1918. In 1920, a little firepot from Ohio named Alexander Brown Mackie arrived in Salina and took over the KWU athletic program and began a resurgence of Coyote football, which has continued since. Mackie has the best winning percentage of all coaches at KWU who have more than 10 wins (.545), and has the second most wins overall (78) in his 17 years of coaching. Mackie has five of KWU’s 13 KCAC Championships, one more than Gene Bissell who earned four trophies in his tenure at KWU. Since the beginning of the modern era of the KCAC in 1929, KWU has captured 13 conference titles, third place all time behind Bethany and Ottawa who each have 17.

In 1952, the legendary Franklin Gene Bissell took over a fledgling Coyote football program that had gone 42-45-13 since Mackie left in 1937. Bissell spent the next 26 years at the helm, bringing the team to the top of the KCAC once again. Bissell is the all-time winningest football coach at KWU with 116 wins, and has the third best winning percentage (.494) all-time. Bissell was elected to the KWU Athletic Hall of Fame and is also a member of the NAIA Hall of Fame (1991). Bissell retired from coaching after the 1978 season with a 116-119-7 record. The next 18 years of Coyote football saw only one KCAC championship in 1982, a player controversy involving a player who had already graduated from Florida State that landed KWU in the national spotlight on ESPN in 1995, and a dismal 67-109-1 record until 1997, when Dave Dallas came to KWU from KCAC rival Ottawa University. Since then, Dallas has returned the team to its past glory, as he earned two consecutive KCAC titles in 2001 and 2002. Since 2000, KWU has gone 59-34 and has appeared three times in post-season play (2001 American Family Insurance Charity Bowl, 2002 NAIA Playoffs, 2003 NAIA Playoffs). Dallas’ two trips to the NAIA playoffs were the first in KWU’s history. His record at KWU stands at 67-53 through 12 seasons. Since the inception of football at KWU in 1893, Kansas Wesleyan has a 400-433-39 record. Since the modern era of the KCAC began in 1929, KWU’s conference record is 284-273-22 to go along with its 13 conference championships, the first of which was in 1929, and the most recent in 2003.
