Hull Center for Athletics On October 15, 2004, the University celebrated the completion of the Hull Center for Athletics with a dedication ceremony. The Hull Center became a reality through the generous gift of Jeff L. (‘88) and Tracy J. Hull. The gift was made in honor of Jeff’s grandparents and parents, and represents the ongoing relationship between the Hull Family and Ottawa University. Jeff’s grandfather, Robert L. Hull, was the University’s superintendent of buildings and grounds for over twenty years. In addition to keeping the University’s physical plant running in top shape, Robert was also the general contractor in the construction of the Mabee Athletic Center. Richard L. Hull (‘71), Jeff ’s father, attended OU on a football scholarship, while majoring in Biology. A fouryear starter on Ottawa’s football team, he was captain of the 1970 KCAC championship team. After graduating from Ottawa, Richard completed medical school and set up a successful medical practice as a physician and surgeon in Iola, Kansas. Jeff came to Ottawa University on a football scholarship as well. He was a four-year starter for the Braves, earning numerous awards including two-time All-Conference, two-time NAIA Academic All-American, and the College Football Hall of Fame Scholar-Athlete of the Year Award. He graduated with honors and distinction in 1988 with a major in Accounting. He has gone on to have a successful career in business, serving as the chairman, president and CEO of Atrium Companies Inc. Jeff’s two other siblings, sister Cindy (‘97) and brother Michael (‘00), also left lasting marks on Ottawa University. Cindy (Hull) Stockton was an All-Conference player on the Lady Braves basketball team. When she finished her playing career at OU, she held various records including highest field goal percentage and most blocked shots in a season. She was also a member of Who’s Who Among Students in American Colleges and Universities. Michael was a two-time NAIA First Team All-American football player and is second all-time in career receptions (156). The outstanding athletic talent and academic success represented by the Hull Family affirms a family philosophy that the two should go hand-in-hand. Indeed, the Latin inscription on the Hull Center, mens sana in corpore sano – a healthy mind in a healthy body – gives testimony to this belief.

SEASON PREVIEW

2009 Braves Football Media Guide

2009 Season Preview

The Ottawa University football team will look to build on the success of last year’s 8-2 overall record and a second place finish in the KCAC (6-2). OU will try to win its 17th KCAC Championship and its 18th overall conference title. For the first time since 1998 the OU football program enters the season ranked in the NAIA Coaches Top 25 Poll and returns key components of its offense and defense that broke and set several OU football records. Offense: The Braves goal on offense is to continue building on last year, in which nine offensive records were either set or broken. OU will try to move the ball and put points on the board in the fashion that they did last year. “Teams are going to try to take that away from us so we will need to be balanced and be able to run the ball as well as throw it. We were very balanced last year and I think that we need to continue to play an up tempo game and keep defenses on their toes. A lot of it depends on chemistry,” said OU head coach Kent Kessinger. To help in the offensive production OU returns second team All-KCAC quarterback, Ethan Haller. “Haller is a returning starter that is probably one of the better quarterbacks in the NAIA,” said Kessinger. “He broke eight school passing records last season and is a great leader on the field.” Haller will be expected to build on his success from last season and has been preparing himself for this upcoming season with his hard work in the off season. The battle to back up Haller is between two sophomores, CJ Krug and Jake Johnson. Both are returners to the Braves’ program with a year of experience and both had great springs. Krug and Johnson are joined by Perry LeCompton quarterback Shane Gimzo, who played in the Mo./Kan. Classic and the Shrine Bowl, and Paola quarterback Adam Henn. Kessinger feels good about the backup situation. “They are pretty gifted quarterbacks so I feel very confident in the back up situation.” The running backs are led by honorable mention All-KCAC selection Andy Otto. He will be joined by sophomores Rashad Tucker and Clinton Weldin, and a transfer from Garden City Community College, Nick Allen. “Allen is in the mold of Otto, he can flex out and be a receiver for us as much as be able to run in the back field,” said Kessinger. “We have a physical runner with Tucker and we have speed and quickness with Otto, Weldin and Allen.” The receiving core returns second team All-KCAC selection Corey Schultz, Zach Schultz and Clarence Anderson. “After watching both spring and summer, I feel very comfortable with Zach and Corey as well as the young guy, Clarence. He is really starting to

Clarence has really good receiving skills with this summer being a really good one for him with putting on the weight and getting more physical.” Coach Kessinger believes that OU has two really good tight ends with Taylor Burnett and Julian Mirza. Burnett is getting the most publicity, earning preseason Sporting News NAIA All-American honors. “I think Burnett is going to have another great year. I can see people trying to take him out of our offense but the way we spread people around he will still get a good number of balls thrown his way.” Mirza had a great spring because of that you could see both tight ends on the field at the same time. “I would like to use them a lot, whether it is in double tight formation or spreading them out.” The line is always the big question mark and this year is no different. With only three upper classmen returning OU will look to fill in the gaps with some young, but talented linemen. “It is the only position on the field where you have to have five guys working together as one,” said Kessinger. “The key to our success is how they come together. The three returners are seniors, Matt Pennington, Julian Mendez and Daniel Caldera. Pennington is returning All-KCAC performer, Caldera red-shirted last year and Mendez, who can play either guard or tackle, played a lot last season.” Defense: The 2009 defense will feature more speed than a year ago. OU added some transfers at spring semester that will have an immediate impact and have added to a talented defensive line. The secondary is where OU lost the most experience but they have added some athletes to the mix. The line is led by Jamison Shaw and Jarvis Moorehead-Reed. They have been very solid players for the last three years. DJ Grayson, a transfer from Pasadena City College, will be expected to help out right away along with some incoming freshmen. “The line is very athletic, they are not going to be overly huge in the defensive line but we are pretty athletic and quick,” said Kessinger. “It is pretty much the whole premise of our defense.” OU’s linebacking core returns all four starters and can be considered as the best in the KCAC. “It might not be too much to say that they might be some of the better linebackers in the NAIA.” Ross Diehl, Fielding Brenner, Josh Hojje and Art Rubio all earned All-KCAC honors with Diehl picking up a honorable mention All-American selection. Kessinger believes that adding in transfer Dakotah Gettler into the mix will help out the depth of Braves linebackers. “We should be able to go two deep in each position

2009 Season Preview

and not really have too much of a drop off,” said Kessinger. “It has been a solid group and it can be considered the strength of our defense.” The secondary lost two seniors, Evander Williams and Chris Hurd, from last year and you cannot replace that experience and leadership. Athletically though the Braves secondary should prove to be a very athletic group. OU will look to three young guys to step up at safety and make an immediate impact; returners Matt Gross and Joey Erwin and transfer Anthony Giambona. At the corners the Braves will look at Jay Smith, Earl Moorning, Ty’Rone Jenkins and Steven Lane. Special Teams: OU returns punter Michael Cebold, All-KCAC kicker Casey Wieder and All-KCAC returner Corey Schultz. This group set two school records last year, highest punting average in a single game versus Southwestern Assemblies of God (48 yards per punt) by Michael Cebold and longest punt return (87 yards) by Corey Schultz versus Bethany College. The return went for a touchdown. The Braves special teams finished ranked second in the KCAC and seventh in the NAIA in kickoff return yards per return (23.6) while using six different returners throughout the season. With a majority of the key players returning, special teams can be considered a strength for the Braves. Schedule: Coach Kessinger likes how the schedule sets up for the Braves, “It is not who we play, when we play them. It is more along the lines of that we have two bye weeks.” OU plays in the Touchdown Classic versus McKendree University in Platte City, Mo. on August 29th. Then the Braves get two weeks until game two to improve on their weaknesses. OU then plays for five straight weeks and gets bye week number two on the week of October 17th. “Last year we needed a bye week in the middle of October to heal up and this bye will give us time to heal and rejuvenate, to make a push in the final four weeks of the season.” The Braves will operate the season under the same philosophy as last year. “We are going to take one game at a time and it starts with one practice and one day and works to one game and one week. We are going to put a string together to be able to compete for our conference’s championship and hopefully this year we will not be that team sitting out of the playoffs. We will be able to get in there and compete.”

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 called the Kansas College Athletic Conference. The members were Baker, Bethany, KS 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 6 (which became the Big 8, now the 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 Northern and Southern 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 University of Saint Mary-Leavenworth joined to bring the KCAC membership to ten. Today the KCAC sponsors conference intercollegiate athletics in football, volleyball, men’s and women’s cross country, men’s and women’s soccer, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s indoor/outdoor track and field, baseball, softball, golf, and men’s and women’s tennis.

Ottawa University Administration Kevin Eichner became the 21st president of Ottawa University in July of 2008 having served as a member of the OU Board of Trustees since 1982 and as a prior Chairman. Under his leadership, the University has embarked on a major expansion campaign and is presently enjoying record growth in new student enrollments.

President Kevin Eichner

Prior to his appointment to lead Ottawa University, Eichner served as president, CEO and vice chairman of Enterprise Financial Services Corporation, the parent company of Enterprise Bank & Trust, a $4.0 billion banking and wealth management trust company headquartered in St. Louis with operations in Kansas City and Phoenix. A co-founder of Enterprise, Eichner served as its CEO from 2002 through May of 2008 and oversaw its emergence as a NASDAQ-traded company recognized for its high growth and performance in the financial services industry. Prior to his work at Enterprise, Eichner served as executive vice president and then CEO of General American/MetLife for five years. In 1983, he founded a successful consulting company, Collaborative Strategies, Inc., which provided consultation to a large number of management and strategic for-profit and not-for-profit organizations during his 14 year tenure prior to its acquisition by General American in 1997. Eichner is a 1973 graduate of Ottawa University with a BA in social change. He went on to earn an MBA from the Harvard Business School in 1977. Firmly committed to lifelong learning, Eichner designed and launched Enterprise University for Enterprise Bank and Trust, which has enrolled over 5,000 executives and non-profit leaders in workshops aimed at enhancing their knowledge and skill sets. He has written business essays which have been regularly published. Eichner has taught workshops on numerous business and organizational topics over the past 25 years. He is known as an accomplished strategic planning facilitator, having served over 100 clients in this capacity. Eichner and his wife Marylin, a 2000 graduate of OU-Greater Kansas City, are the parents of three adult sons, Adam (25), Andy (24) and Kyle (22). Dr. Dennis Tyner is in his third year as the Vice President and Provost of The College at Ottawa University. In this position, Dr. Tyner is responsible for the administration of the entire Ottawa campus. Before accepting his new position at Ottawa University, Dr. Tyner was Dean of The David Crawford School of Engineering at Norwich University, in Northfield, Vermont. Under his direction, the Engineering Division developed new programs, modernized course offerings, and all engineering programs received the highest level of accreditation from the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET/EAC). The Division also developed new strategies that resulted in a significant increase in both enrollment and retention.

Dr. Tyner and his wife Patty have eight children: Rikki (30), Katy (29), Kelli (27), Kristi (22), Kandi (19), David (18), Kevin (16) and Keith (13). Four members of the Tyner family are currently pursuing their degrees at Ottawa University. This year both Patty and Kristi are expecting to complete their course requirements and earn their BA degrees. Patty has opted for the more flexible schedule and is completing her business degree on-line, while Kristi has taken a more traditional approach to earning her degree in elementary education by enrolling in courses at the Ottawa campus. Also at the Ottawa campus are Kandi, currently in her second year of pursuing a degree in business administration, and David, who is in his first year and has yet to declare a major. Dr. Tyner and his family reside in Ottawa, Kansas.
