The 2012 Lamar University Football Yearbook is a publication of the Lamar University Athletics Media Relation Office. The guide was edited and designed by Erik J. Cox with editorial assistance from Pat Murray, Daucy Crizer and Rush Wood. Photography by Mike Tobias, Will France, Guiseppe Barranco, Matt Billiot, Tino Mauricio, Tammy McKinley and various other contributors. Covers designed by Erik J. Cox and Clay Trainum. The yearbook is hosted by ZMags.


Lamar University was able to return to the gridiron thanks in large part to the generosity of donors like Walter Umphrey and his partners at Provost Umphrey law firm. In recognition of a gift from the Beaumont-based law firm and an additional gift from Umphrey and his wife, Sheila, the name “Provost Umphrey Stadium� graces the renovated facility where fans cheer on the Cardinals. The renovated stadium features all new bench and chair-back seating, new restroom and concession facilities, a new concourse area, and increased handicap accessible seating areas. In addition, the installation of new lighting and a Matrix field turf playing surface provides a state-of-the art venue that will not only hold up to challenging weather conditions, but also allow the stadium to be a multiuse facility. Furthermore, thanks to a $1 million contribution from Education First Federal Credit Union, Provost Umphrey Stadium features a state-of-the-art, video-integrated scoreboard. The video board offers complete flexibility, with the capability to show one large single video image, multiple video images, and a combination of live or recorded video with real time scores and statistics, out of town game information, sponsors' messages, graphics and animation.


Opening and Dedication Today’s plush and newly-renovated Provost Umphrey Stadium was originally built for a cost of $1 million with the construction period lasting from May of 1963 through July of 1964. It was dedicated during ceremonies prior to Lamar’s 21-0 season opening victory over East Central Oklahoma on Sept. 19, 1964. Lamar fullback Darrell Johnson scored the first touchdown in stadium history on a 30-yard run during the second quarter of that game. The Cardinals have compiled a 67-69-3 record in the stadium with their longest winning streak being 12 games spanning the 1965-1967 seasons.

Coaching Staff

Ray Woodard Head Coach - Third Season With two seasons under his belt, Ray Woodard has the Lamar University football program headed in the right direction. In 2011, Lamar was able to compete as a full member of the Southland Conference and Woodard guided the Cardinals to a pair of conference road wins on their way to a 4-7 overall record and a 2-5 league mark. For the second straight year, Woodard’s Cardinals rewrote the Lamar record books. Seven individual and six team records were either set or tied during the 2011 campaign. Lamar had a pair of players earn second-team All-Southland Conference honors in wide receiver J.J. Hayes and offensive lineman Anthony Oden. Six other Cardinals earned honorable mention all-conference honors, including wide receiver Marcus Jackson who signed a free agent deal to play for the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons following the 2012 draft. All this coming on the heels of an historic year in 2010. Not only did the Cardinals take the field for the first time since 1989, but they turned a lot of heads with their immediate success on the gridiron. In their very first game – at McNeese State on Sept. 4 – they set a school record with 429 passing yards, and two weeks later – at Southeastern Louisiana – quarterback Andre Bevil led a fourth-quarter comeback that sparked a 29-28 victory over the stunned highly-favored Lions. Woodard guided the Cardinals to a 5-6 overall record, which included a 4-2 mark in newly refurbished Provost Umphrey Stadium while playing in front of capacity crowds in their first four home games. The overall record does not begin to tell the story of the renewed excitement and school pride that were returned to the Beaumont campus. Although the Cardinals were not eligible for the Southland Conference championship during the 2010 season, the excitement generated by Lamar’s resurrection of the football program was reflected in the fact Woodard was one of five finalists voted for the Southeast Texas Press Club’s 2010 Newsmaker of the Year Award. McNeese State was ranked 11th in the nation when the Cardinals put a scare into the Cowboys before falling 30-27 in the season opener for both teams. A week later, playing its home opener in front of a red-clad crowd of 16,600, Lamar earned its first victory in over two decades by a 21-14 margin over Webber International. Lamar added four more victories, including the impressive 29-28 come-from-behind win at Southeastern Louisiana. A high-powered offense, which set 15 team or individual records during the season, became the signature for the 2010 Cardinals who closed the year with a dominating 44-6 dismantling of Oklahoma Panhandle State. Woodard was named the eighth football coach at Lamar University by university president James Simmons and then athletics director

Billy Tubbs on May 19, 2008. He came to Lamar after serving three seasons at Navarro College – the first two as defensive coordinator and the final as head coach. His 2007 squad went 9-3 and advanced to the conference playoffs for the first time in six seasons. Navarro defeated defending national champion Blinn College on consecutive weeks before rolling past Kilgore – the SWJCFC regularseason champion on the road 54-28 to earn the school's first bowl bid since the 1990s. Navarro claimed a 24-21 win over Georgia Military in the Pilgrim's Pride Bowl to finish the year ranked fourth in the NJCAA national poll. For his efforts, Woodard was named the SWJCFC Coach of the Year. From 2003-05, Woodard served as the head football and track coach at Burton (Texas) High School, with the Panthers winning the district title in track in 2004. He spent two years as the defensive coordinator at Livingston (Texas) HS from 1998-2001 and one season at Trinity HS in 1997-98. Trinity went 7-3 in 1997. Woodard spent three years as the defensive coordinator for the Scottish Claymores from 2000-03 during his second stint with an NFL Europe franchise. Woodard's other professional coaching experience came as the general manager/head coach for the Houston Outlaws (1999-2000) of the Regional Football League, defensive coordinator of the Frank-

As a senior in 1983, Woodard and the Longhorns posted a perfect 11-0 regular-season mark, captured the Southwest Conference championship and finished the season ranked fifth in the nation. Texas led the nation in total defense, yielding an average of 212 yards per game along with an average of 9.5 points per game. Woodard was selected in the eighth round of the 1984 NFL Draft

Allen Johnson Assistant Head Coach - Secondary

Allen Johnson, who spent his first season at Lamar as co-defensive coordinator, has been elevated to the position of assistant head coach for the 2012 season. Prior to coming to Lamar, Johnson coached the cornerbacks at the University of Texas-El Paso for three seasons. Johnson, who earned his bachelor’s degree in health and kinesiology at Texas A&M-Commerce in 1999 and his master’s degree in the same field a year later, played collegiately at Kilgore College, Central Oklahoma and A&M-Commerce. When he was at Kilgore, he played under Woodard who was then Kilgore’s defensive coordinator. After taking a break in his college career to serve in the U.S. Air Force, Johnson earned All-Lone Star Conference South Division honors and a trip to the Snow Bowl as a senior in 1998. He also competed for the A&M-Commerce track and field team and served as president of the school’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee. At UTEP, Johnson coached such star defensive backs as Cornelius Brown, Melvin Stephenson and Clarence Ward, all of whom played briefly in the National Football 24

League. Before going to UTEP, Johnson spent the 2007 season as the defensive backs coach and recruiting coordinator at Midwestern State University, which fielded the top defense in the Lone Star Conference that year. In going 8-3 that season, Midwestern State led the league in scoring defense (18.6 points-pergame average), total defense (294.2 yards-per-game average) and rushing defense (93.9 yards-per-game). In 2006, Johnson served as the quality control coach at Oklahoma State University, helping lead the Cowboys to seven wins and an Independence Bowl victory.

Bill Bradley Defensive Coordinator

Former National Football League pro bowler and longtime coach Bill Bradley begins his first season as the defensive coordinator at Lamar University. Prior to joining the Lamar coaching staff, Bradley served as director of the secondary at FBU (Football University), a one-of-a-kind training experience for the nation’s elite youth and high school players. Bradley spent two years with the Florida Tuskers of the United Football League as defensive backfield coach, helping the franchise reach the league’s championship game twice. Before joining the Tuskers, Bradley served as the defensive backs coach for the San Diego Chargers for three seasons, one of his three stops in the NFL. While with the Chargers, San Diego led the NFL in interceptions for the first time in club history and reached the AFC title game in 2007. Bradley served under Guy Morriss at Baylor University as the defensive coordinator from 200406. After inheriting a defense which ranked 105th nationally in total defense, Bradley helped the Bears reach a ranking of 63rd and coached over a dozen All-Big 12 players while at Baylor. Bradley went to Baylor following a three-year stint with the New York Jets as the team's defensive backs coach. While serving under head coach Herman Edwards, Bradley helped the Jets rank among the NFL's top 10 in pass defense, advance to the playoffs in 2001 and 2002 and win the 2002 AFC East title. Bradley enjoyed a successful three-year run with the Buffalo Bills before moving on to the Jets. With Bradley serving as the defensive backs coach from 1998 to 2000, the Bills led the NFL in total defense in 1999, ranked third the year before and were sixth in 2000. Buffalo advanced to the AFC playoffs in Bradley’s first two years with the team. Bradley enjoyed success in the Canadian Football League before breaking into the NFL coaching ranks. While serving as the defensive coordinator for the Toronto Argonauts, Bradley helped the team win the Grey Cup in both 1996 and 1997. He also served as the defensive coordinator and secondary coach for the CFL's San Antonio Texans (1995) and the Sacramento Gold Miners (1994), worked as the

defensive backs coach of the World League's San Antonio Riders (1991-92) and spent three years with the CFL's Calgary Stampeders (1988-90) as defensive coordinator and defensive backs coach. Bradley’s first coaching job came in 1983 with the San Antonio Gunslingers of the United States Football League. He spent his first season as the team’s defensive backs coach and personnel assistant, before spending the 1984 campaign as secondary coach. Bradley spent the 1985 season with the USFL’s Memphis Showboats as secondary coach, and also served the 1987 season as a volunteer assistant at the University of Texas. A third round draft pick of the Philadelphia Eagles in 1969, Bradley went on to earn three straight All-Pro awards from 1971-73 at free safety. In addition, he served as the Eagles' punter, kick returner and holder. Bradley, who led the NFL in interceptions in both 1971 (11) and 1972 (nine), became the first player ever to lead the league in interceptions in consecutive seasons. Bradley still holds Eagle records for career interception return yardage with 536 and club single-season marks for interceptions and return yardage with 11 picks for 249 yards in 1971. Bradley is tied with Brian Dawkins and Eric Allen for most career interceptions in club history with 34. He played in 114 NFL games, spending the 1969-76 seasons with the Eagles and the 1977 campaign with both the Minnesota Vikings and St. Louis Cardinals. Bradley was a high school All-America quarterback out of Palestine, Texas. He led his team to the 1965 state title and went on to a stellar college career as a quarterback and defensive back at Texas from 1966 to 1968. He served as a tri-captain on Darrell Royal's 1968 Longhorn team which finished the season with a record of 9-1-1 and tied for the Southwest Conference championship. The 1968 Longhorns were ranked third in the final Associated Press poll and beat Tennessee 36-13 in the Cotton Bowl. Bradley recorded a UT single-game record four interceptions in the Longhorns' 35-14 win over Texas A&M as a senior, a mark that still stands as the best-ever by a SWC performer. He played in the 1969 Hula Bowl, the Coaches All-America Game and the College All-Star Game. Bradley earned UT's 1968 D.H. Byrd Leadership Award. A member of the Texas Sports, Texas High School, University of Texas and Philadelphia Eagles halls of fame, Bradley and his wife, Susan, have two children, Matthew and Carissa.

In between his two stops at Hawai`i, McKnight was the tight ends coach at San Diego State from 200506 and the special teams coordinator and offensive line coach at Grossmont College from 2002-03.

President James M. Simmons Dr. James M. Simmons, Lamar University’s president, has led Lamar into a new era of dynamic growth. Momentum has been the watchword of Simm o n s ’ administration, a period in which enrollment recorded its largest increase in Lamar’s almost 90-year history, with more than 14,500 students in fall 2011. Even in the wake of two major storms – Hurricane Ike in 2008 and Hurricane Rita in 2005 – Simmons and his team kept classes and graduation on schedule, restoring the campus after substantial damage as well as adding state-of-the-art facilities. In spring 2008, the university launched its first comprehensive campaign, “Investing in the Future,” with the ambitious goal of $100 million. Nearing that mark in January 2012, the goal was increased to $125 million. Impact of the campaign is far reaching – to include endowments for four named academic departments, gifts to support revival of the Cardinals’ football tradition, establishment of a major student fellowship program and substantial growth in scholarship funds. Simmons also implemented a master plan to enhance the campus through landscaping and buildings, most notably the Cardinal Village residence halls, which now

accommodate more than 2,500 students. The Dining Hall, which opened in spring of 2006, and the Sheila Umphrey Recreational Sports Center, dedicated in spring of 2007, further contribute to campus life. Renovations and expansions of several major academic buildings have been completed, are under way or are in planning phases. Lamar has also seen major enhancements to its athletic facilities, with the crown jewels including Provost Umphrey Stadium and the Dauphin Athletic Complex. VincentBeck Stadium and McDonald Gym have enjoyed major upgrades, and the LU Soccer and Softball Complex opened in 2009. The university’s designation as a Doctoral Research University by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching is a powerful affirmation of Lamar’s high level of research activities. Recognizing that online programs are vital to the university’s future, Simmons has continually sought growth in that area. Today, more than 30 percent of LU’s credit hours are now generated through online courses; nearly 4,200 of the university’s students learn entirely online, and LU is a recognized leader in online education. Simmons took office as president on Sept. 1, 1999, bringing a wealth of perspective to the position. A Lamar veteran of more than four decades, he previously served as dean of the College of Fine Arts and Communication and as interim executive director of university advancement. He began his Lamar career in 1970 as an instructor and director of the marching band. He quickly rose through the ranks, serving as director of bands and as chair of the music department. Simmons is also a leader in community service, having garnered dozens of awards and accolades. He has attracted acclaim as an orchestra leader and as a performer on clarinet, saxophone and piano. Because of his leadership role, those pursuits have taken a back seat, but he often says music is his first love, and he continues to grace the stage. Simmons is known as an administrator with a strong sense of direction and a keen ability to attract and cultivate talented faculty – who, he stresses, are professionals who teach rather than professional teachers. His innovative approaches to the pursuit of academic excellence and his winning rapport with students, faculty, staff and the community are defining qualities. In April 2009, Simmons received the

NCAA Division I Football Championship Game Second Year for NCAA Division I Football Championship Game in Frisco Leads to Sell Out College football coaches often say the greatest improvement a team makes is between its first and second game. Team Frisco certainly agrees. After staging a successful championship game in 2011, its first of at least three at FC Dallas Stadium in Frisco, Texas, year two was even better. Last year, the perfect blend of two passionate fan bases combined with a “local” team making it to the championship game led to a standing-room only crowd of 20,586 to watch North Dakota State beat Sam Houston State 17-6. Fans of each school were scrambling to find tickets as soon as they locked up their appearances with semifinal wins and as a result, the game was sold out less than four days later. A limited number of standing-room-only tickets became available the week of the game and sold out within minutes. “I joked that the last person in the state of North Dakota needs to turn out the lights because I don’t know if there’s anybody left,” Bison coach Craig Bohl said after the game. “What a great showing of support. I want to say thanks to all our fans. This is a great game-day venue and Sam Houston State had a great following, too. I think it just sets a tone that this championship can really be special.” North Dakota State’s campus in Fargo is roughly 1,000 miles north of Frisco and about a 16-hour drive. Conversely, Frisco is only about 200 miles north of Huntsville, Texas, where Sam Houston State calls home. Combine those elements and it produced an electric atmosphere from start to finish. North Dakota State quarterback Brock Jensen threw a touchdown pass right after a fake punt and then added a 1-yard run for another score following a long interception return to help the No. 2 seed Bison upset the top-seeded Bearkats, snapping Sam Houston’s 16-game win streak and preventing it from winning its first national championship. North Dakota State won its first national championship at the Division I level to go with five Division II titles, the last in 1990. Each of the last four Division I championship games, including both games in Frisco, have produced a first-time champion: Richmond following the 2008 season, Villanova in 2009 and Eastern Washington in 2010. Eastern Washington erased 16-point deficit to beat Delaware 20-19 in the first game in Frisco in January 2011. The entertaining game certainly did not disappoint the 13,000-plus fans who attended the first college football game in Frisco. While the games have no doubt been the highlight, it is a week’s worth of events that have separated the event in Frisco from past championships – not to mention the great Texas hospitality. The teams arrive in Texas four days before the game starts. They’re greeted by signs and banners around town as well as great crowds at their respective team headquarters. The next day, the teams visit local elementary schools where they are welcomed by

students eager to show off their school spirit for their newly adopted college teams. Later that night, the two participating teams gather for the Great Texas Barbecue Bowl that showcase the legendary Texas culture and hospitality. On Friday, teams attend the Champions Luncheon and make last-minute tweaks in game preparation. The day of the game, fans begin gathering at restaurants and parking lots surrounding FC Dallas Stadium and take part in Tailgate Town that features quality entertainment and even more Texas sounds, flavors and hospitality. “The NCAA national championship game in Frisco was an experience our players, fans and coaching staff will never forget,” Sam Houston State head coach Willie Fritz said. “What a great week. The NCAA, Southland Conference and city of Frisco put on a first class event from start to finish.” The local organizing committee, collectively known as Team Frisco consists of the City of Frisco, its Economic Development Corporation and Convention & Visitors Bureau, Hunt Sports Group/FC Dallas Stadium, the Frisco Chamber of Commerce and Frisco-based Southland Conference. The Football Championship Subdivision is comprised of the conferences and institutions that compete in the NCAA Division I Football Championship - Big Sky, Big South, Colonial Athletic Association, Ivy League, Mid-Eastern Athletic, Missouri Valley Football, Northeast, Ohio Valley, Patriot League, Pioneer, Southern, Southland and the Southwestern Athletic. The Ivy League and Southwestern Athletic Conference choose not to participate in the football championship. The FCS embodies a tradition of excellence through high level competition, student-athlete character and sportsmanship throughout the regular season and the championship experience.

Included was a four-touchdown 105-yard rushing performance by Navarro College transfer DePauldrick Garrett, who starred at nearby West Orange-Stark High School. Garrett's four touchdowns set a Lamar record, and his 24 points surpassed Harold LaFitte's 46-year-old school record of 20 set in a 1965 game against Pensacola Navy. Also, the eight extra points booted by sophomore Justin Stout matched the school record set by Walter Smith against Mexico Poly in 1961. Teamwise, the 58-point winning margin was the largest in school history, exceeding the 48 points by which the 1953 Cardinals outscored Mexico Poly. The 5-foot-8, 190-pound Garrett scored on runs of 1, 2 and 1 yards, and the Cardinals also received a 2-yard TD run by Octavious Logan and a 38-yard interception return for a score by junior defensive back Adrian Guillory in the first half, alone. The 35 first-half points were six more than the one-game high last season. Garrett scored his fourth TD of the night early in the third quarter, moments after sophomore Kye Hildreth recovered a fumbled punt by the Steers at the 7-yard line. Two plays later, Garrett gouged his way into the north end zone to break both school standards. Later in the third quarter, sophomore linebacker James Washington came up with Lamar's second pickoff and took it back 56 yards to run the Cardinals' lead to 49-0. A safety at the 3:45 mark of the quarter increased the cushion to 51-0, and Mike Vinson's 4-yard TD smash over left tackle with 12.7 seconds left enabled the Cardinals to take a 58-0 lead into the final period. Defensively, the Cardinals were dominant. They limited the Steers to three first downs and 12 total yards on 30 first-half plays, and Texas College's respective game totals were four and negative six. The Cardinals forced five turnovers (two interceptions and three lost fumbles). Meanwhile, Lamar's offense rushed for 209 yards by far the Cardinals' most during the Ray Woodard coaching era. They also passed for 111 yards, giving them 320 yards, and they lost only two turnovers (both fumbles).

Game 2 - 9/10/11

MOBILE, Ala. - Lamar University's football team scored its first touchdown in eight quarters of play against South Alabama on Sept. 10 in Ladd Peebles Stadium. By the time redshirt freshman quarterback Jeremy Johnson hooked up with split end J.J. Hayes for the score with 2:11 remaining in the game, however, it was of little consequence. The 26-yard strike merely served to reduce the final margin of defeat to 30-8. Demetre Baker carried the ball 13 times for 82 yards and scored on an 11-yard run in the second quarter, while Kendall Houston, who rushed for a career-high 164 yards against the Cardinals last season, had 43 yards on 13 carries, including a 4-yard touchdown smash to start the Jaguars' scoring parade. As a team, the Jaguars piled up 21 first downs to Lamar's nine, rushed for 205 yards to the Cardinals' 115 and passed for 144 yards to LU's 123. C.J. Bennett, a redshirt freshman who threw three interceptions in the Jaguars' 20-10 season-opening victory over West Alabama a week ago, completed nine of 14 passes for 144 yards without a pick. He had touchdown throws of 10 yards to Waldon and another 10 to Jereme Jones. The Jaguars' other score came on Jordan Means' 22-yard field goal early in the fourth quarter. Junior DePauldrick Garrett, who scored a school-record four touchdowns in the Cardinals' 58-0 season-opening win over Texas College last week, managed 56 yards on 18 carries this time, but his longest run was a 7-yarder. Senior Andre Bevil, who passed for 2,013 yards for the Cardinals last season, had a second-straight subpar performance, completing six of 18 attempts for 97 yards. Hayes snared three passes for 79 yards for Lamar, but no other Cardinal had more than one catch. Senior Marcus Jackson, making his first appearance of the season after sitting out the Texas College game with an injury, gained 18 yards on his lone reception.

In improving to 2-1 on the season, Lamar rolled up 469 yards of total offense, but the host Cardinals allowed UIW to score two touchdowns in a span of 48 seconds early in the fourth quarter. That spurt pulled UIW to within 42-35, but Lamar put it away with a 31yard Justin Stout field goal which was followed a few moments later by a clutch interception by linebacker Jacody Coleman. After allowing UIW tailback Trent Rios to rush for 94 first-half yards, the host Cardinals limited him to 26 yards in the second half. Meanwhile, Mike Venson, getting his most extended playing time of the season, rushed for 90 yards and one touchdown for the host Cardinals, and senior quarterback Andre Bevil passed for 226 yards and two touchdowns. Redshirt freshman Jeremy Johnson spelled Bevil on a few possessions and ran for 47 yards on six carries and completed a 7-yard touchdown pass to senior split end J.J. Hayes, who had four receptions for a season-high 96 yards. Bevil completed 14 of 19 passes, including touchdown strikes of 10 yards to Hayes and 25 yards to sophomore Kye Hildreth. Lamar's other touchdowns came on runs of 21 yards by DePauldrick Garrett and 9 yards by Venson. Lamar gained 340 of its yards in the first half with 209 coming through the air. Bevil went 9-for-12 for 189 yards and two TDs in the first half, while Rios rushed for 94 first-half yards on 17 carries for UIW.

The four-touchdown spurt erased a 24-13 SLU lead and gave the Cardinals a 41-24 lead early in the fourth quarter. The Lions cut their deficit to 41-31 on Brian Young's 1-yard touchdown sneak, but the Cardinals responded with Andre Bevil's second play-action pass for a score, this one a 29-yarder to Marcus Jackson. In defeating the Lions on the road for the second-straight season, the Cardinals received a four-touchdown, 270-yard passing effort from Bevil, who completed 19 of 32 atttempts with one interception. Jackson caught two touchdown passes and threw another of 62 yards to split end J.J. Hayes after catching a lateral from Bevil. Bevil's other scoring passes went for 44 yards to Jackson, 32 yards to running back Mike Venson and 2 yards to tight end Paden McVey. Venson rushed for a season-high 84 yards on 27 carries and added four receptions for 54 yards. Also, backup running back Octavious Logan netted 70 rushing yards and logged touchdown runs of 4 and 6 yards. Jackson finished with a career-high 123 receiving yards on five catches, and Hayes, who was playing in his 13th game as a Cardinal went over the 1,000-yard barrier with 92 yards on four catches, giving him 66 catches for 1,057 yards for his Cardinal career. Lamar's defenders helped the offense by coming up with a fumble recovery inside the 10-yard line by linebacker James Washington, another fumble recovery by linebacker Asim Hicks and with interceptions by linebacker Jacody Coleman, cornerback Adrian Guillory and free safety Ryan Clark. In easily their most impressive offensive display of the fall, the Cardinals compiled season-highs of 25 first downs, 229 rushing yards, 332 passing yards and 561 total yards.

Hayes. Hayes caught 10 passes for a school-record 212 yards shattering the 192-yard record set by Herbert Harris in a 1981 game against Louisiana Teech. Hayes scored Lamar's final touchdown on a 40-yard pass from senior quarterback Andre Bevil in the fourth quarter, but the Demons iced the game by answering with a 54-yard pass and run play from Henderson to D.J. Palmer. Bevil also threw a first-quarter touchdown pass of 8 yards to Marcus Jackson, and the Cardinals' other points came on a 26-yard field goal by sophomore Justin Stout in the third quarter. Henderson's other touchdown passes went 5 yards to Trevor Goodie and 19 yards to Phillip Harvey. Cornerback Cortez Paige intercepted a Bevil pass on Lamar's first offensive play from scrimmage to set up the Demons' nine-play, 51-yard drive for the game's first score. It came on a 1-yard dive by Sidney Riley, who carried the ball on five plays as the Demons kept the ball on the ground for all but one play on the drive. The Cardinals benefitted from a pair of 15-yard penalties on their ensuing eight-play, 60-yard drive to the matching touchdown. The payoff came on Bevil's 8-yard pass to Jackson in right back of the north end zone on the last offensive play of the first quarter. A pair of offsides penalties helped the Demons as they answered with a 61-yard, 11-play touchdown drive on which Henderson went three-for-three in the passing department. He completed a 5yarder to wide receiver Goodie for the touchdown, then defensive end Jesse Dickson broke through to block Shaughnessy's extra point attempt, leaving the score at 13-7 Demons with 9:47 left in the opening half. Rumeal Morris broke a 53-yard off left tackle to spark the Demons on their seven-play, 66yard drive to their third touchdown of the evening. It gained the Lamar 13-yard line, but the Cardinal defense eventually pushed the Demons into a third-and goal situation from the 19-yard line. Henderson then connected with Harvey on a 19-yard, over-the-middle pass for the touchdown that put the Demons up 20-7 with 3:49 left in the half. After forcing a Cardinal punt, the Demons stretched their halftime lead to 27-7 on Riley's 5-yard run to complete a seven-play, 76-yard scoring drive. The Demons dominated the first-half statistics, rolling up 16 first downs to Lamar's nine, and they outgained the Cardinals 270-118 in total yards. Henderson completed 15 of his 18 first-half passes for 139 yards and two touchdowns, while Bevil went 8-for-15 for 97 yards and the lone touchdown. A 44-yard run by Octavious Logan on the second play of the third quarter moved the Cardinals into scoring territory, but they wound up having to settle for Stout's 26-yard field goal that reduced their deficit to 27-10 with 12:40 left in the period.

The Bobcats finished with 535 yards of total offense, and they limited the Cardinals to 246. Texas State accumulated 24 first downs to Lamar's 13, and the Bobcats had the ball for 37:29 to the Cardinals' 22:31. Johnson passed 12 yards to slot receiver Marcus Jackson for the Cardinals' first touchdown of the second half, and he broke a 59-yard scoring run early in the fourth quarter. After replacing starter Andre Bevil at quarterback early in the third quarter, he finished with a net of 53 rushing yards on seven carries, and he completed three of five passes for 81 yards. Sophomore Caleb Harmon of Port Neches-Groves scored the Cardinals' other touchdown with a three-yard run in the second quarter. The Bobcat Stadium crowd of 15,028 witnessed a sterling, all-round performance by Texas State quarterback Shaun Rutherford. The 6-foot junior from Bay City completed 17 of 26 passes for 243 yards and three touchdowns without throwing an interception, and he tacked on 57 rushing yards on 14 carries. Jackson, a senior from Tyler Lee by way of Navarro College, was the game's leading receiver with four catches for 119 yards. Tim Hawkins ran for two touchdowns and caught an 8-yard scoring pass for the Bobcats, who improved to 5-2 on the season, Chase Harper caught scoring passes of 12 and 34 yards. Lamar's second straight loss dropped the Cardinals' record to 3-3. Texas State scored on its first five possessions in building the Bobcats' 35-7 halftime bulge. The Bobcats compiled 275 total yards to the Cardinals' 103. Rutherford finished the opening half at 12-for-17 for 173 yards and three touchdowns, and he added 41 rushing yards. Meanwhile, Bevil was 7-for-17 for 93 yards, and he was sacked three times. He had a negative 12 yards on seven first-half carries. His only second-half attempt fell incomplete.

BEAUMONT - After playing turnover-free football in the first half, Lamar University's football team committed two costly giveaways and had a couple of letdowns in its kicking game in the second half of a 38-24 loss to the University of Central Arkansas. With the Cardinals trailing by seven points, quarterback Andre Bevil threw an interception that strong safety Jestin Love returned 31 yards for the game's final touchdown, and split end J.J. Hayes lost a late-game fumble that enabled the Bears to seal their fourth-straight victory. Also, the Cardinals failed to execute a fake punt play, giving the Bears excellent field position for their 32-yard drive to snap the game's 17-17 halftime tie, and kicker Justin Stout had a 32-yard field goal attempt blocked early in the third quarter. Bevil and backup quarterback Jeremy Johnson combined for 332 yards of total offense and accounted for three touchdowns. Bevil completed 23 of 29 passes for 234 yards and two touchdowns, and Johnson raced 55 yards for the touchdown that pulled the Cardinals into a 24-24 tie at the 6:00 mark of the third quarter. Bevil's scoring tosses covered 13 yards to tight end Payden McVey and 9 yards to slot receiver Marcus Jackson. The Cardinals' other points came on Stout's 18-yard field goal in the second quarter. The Bears received a 13-for-22, 187-yard passing performance from senior quarterback Nathan Dick and a 67-yard rushing effort from Bobo. In addition to the 51-yard touchdown pass to Bobo, Dick completed scoring tosses of 12 yards to Jesse Grandy and 35 yards to Al Lasker. The Bears' other scores came on a 1-yard dive by running back Jackie Hinton and a 28-yard field goal by Eddie Camara. Bevil completed 17 of his first 18 passes and finished the half 19-for23 for 198 yards and two touchdowns without throwing an interception.

HUNTSVILLE - No. 6-ranked Sam Houston State scored on six of its nine first half possessions and held Lamar University scoreless for the first time this season as the Bearkats coasted to a 66-0 win at Bowers Stadium. The Cardinals entered the game averaging 383 yards per game but were limited to just 98 total yards on 55 plays by a stingy Bearkat defense. SHSU had little trouble moving the ball, rushing for 382 and passing for 177 for 559 total yards. The 66-point margin of defeat was the second largest in school history, trailing last season's 68point margin at SFA (71-3). It was an inauspicious start for the Cardinals as Bearkat quarterback Brian Bell hit Richard Sincere on a 77-yard scoring strike on the game's first play from scrimmage. Lamar quarterback Andre Bevil was flushed from the pocket and fumbled the ball away to the Bearkats on the Cards' first possession. Bell hit Ryan Wilson for a 2-yard touchdown to give SHSU a quick 14-0 lead with 11:47 remaining in the first quarter. Daxton Swanson intercepted Bevil and returned it to the Lamar 1 on the Cardinals’ ensuing possession. Tim Flanders, who rushed for 54 yards on 13 carries, scored on a 1-yard plunge to give the Bearkats a 21-0 lead. Sincere, who frequently lines up at quarterback in the Bearkats version of the `Wildcat' formation, scored on a 40-yard run to extend their lead to 28-0 with 7:07 remaining in the second quarter. Flanders added two more scores on runs of 7 and 2 yards to give SHSU a 42-0 halftime lead. SHSU posted a scoring drive on its first possession of the second half. Ryan Wilson capped the 8-play, 69-yard drive with a 17-yard run to push the lead to 49-0. Wilson, who finished with 102 yards on seven carries, scored on a 3-yard run with 3:28 remaining in the third. Keyshawn Hill took over at tailback for the Bearkats late in the third and rushed for a game-high 135 yards on 14 carries. He scored on a 28-yard TD run with 53 seconds left in the third to make the score 63-0. SHSU closed out the scoring on Craig Alaniz' 25-yard field goal in the fourth quarter to provide the final margin. Bell completed 5-of-8 passes for 160 yards and two touchdowns. Prewitt, a sophomore from Beaumont, was the Cardinals leading rusher with 23 yards on six carries. He completed 5-of-15 passes for 46 yards. J.J. Hayes caught four passes for 37 yards.

Austin handed Lamar University its fifth-consecutive loss by a 69-10 margin. In just a little over three quarters of work, the 6-foot-1, 205-pound Attaway completed 24 of 39 passes with only one interception. He led his teammates on touchdown drives of 79, 23, 34, 63, 50, 63, 80 and 90 yards. Attaway had 229 of his passing yards and four of his scoring tosses in the runaway first half in which the Lumberjacks built an insurmountable 557 lead. The 55 points were 17 more than the Cardinals allowed to SFA in their record-setting 71-3 loss in Nacogdoches last year. The Lumberjacks enjoyed other eventful first-half happenings such as Ben Wells' 40-yard interception return for a touchdown and Jordan Aubrey's 29-yard return of a blocked punt for a score. Also, a fumble recovery on a Lamar kickoff return set up Keith Lawson's 23-yard bolt up the middle for an early first-quarter TD, and Travis Walker contributed a 1-yard scoring dive. Defensively, the Jacks sacked Lamar sophomore quarterback Doug Prewitt five times in the opening half, and they added four more sacks in the final two quarters. The Cardinals limited the Cardinals to 16 net rushing yards and 76 passing yards in the first half and to 40 yards rushing and 173 total yards. Forty of Lamar's 76 first-half passing yards came on wide receiver Kevin Smith's grab of a Prewitt pass for the Cards' only score of the opening half. In the first start of the season, the Beaumont Kelly product completed 16 of 28 attempts for 133 yards for one touchdown with one interception.

Receiving LU - Jackson 5-64 1 TD; Hayes 4-107 2 TDs; Sparks 3-35 NSU - Turner 5-39; Washington 4-53; Wynn 3-38 THIBODAUX, La. – Andre Bevil came off the bench to throw three touchdown passes as Lamar University snapped its five-game losing streak with a 34-19 victory over Nicholls. Bevil, who did not play the previous week against Stephen F. Austin, connected with J.J. Hayes on scoring strikes of 8 and 32 yards and with Marcus Jackson for 14 yards. Bevil, who replaced starting quarterback Doug Prewitt in the second quarter, finished the game at 14-for-23 for 186 yards. Jackson and Hayes combined for 171 of the Cardinals’ 225 receiving yards. Jackson had five catches for 64 yards, while Hayes snared four balls for 107 yards. Jackson also returned a kickoff 78 yards for a touchdown, and the opportunistic Cardinal defense came up with four turnovers, although it did allow Nicholls quarterback LaQuintin Caston to run for 177 yards and one touchdown. Cornerbacks Keinon Peterson and Branden Thomas came up with interceptions for the Cardinals, while linebacker Asim Hicks and defensive end Marcus Malbrough had fumble recoveries. In addition to his rushing yards, Caston completed 21 of 40 passes for 214 yards and two touchdowns.

play on the drive was a Bevil pass to senior slot receiver Marcus Jackson for 28 yards. A little over two minutes later, Chad Allen intercepted a Cody Stroud pass and returned it four yards to give the Cardinals possession at the McNeese 37-yard line. A 15-yard personal foul penalty on the Cowboys and a running completion of 16 yards by Bevil to Hayes moved the ball to the 5yard line. Four plays later, however, the Cardinals had to settle for Stout's 20yard field goal that made it 10-3 with 2:22 left in the first quarter. Champlain Babin's 51-yard return of the ensuing kickoff gave the Cowboys excellent field position, and on their first play from scrimmage Darius Carey weaved his way through the Lamar secondary en route to his 34-yard touchdown run. Lewis' conversion tied the score at 10-10 with 2:05 left in the quarter. With 2:48 left in the second quarter Kentrell Butler intercepted a Bevil pass to leave the Cowboys only 36 yards to drive for the tie-breaking touchdown. They negotiated that distance on two runs by Carey and two by Andre Anderson with the final one being an 11-yarder with 1:15 left in the half. Bevil got 146 of his 186 first-half passing yards in the opening quarter. He completed 17 of 33 attempts, and he was also Lamar's leading rusher in the half with a net of 23 yards. Meanwhile, the Cowboys stuck mainly on the ground in the opening half as they accounted for 104 of their 160 total yards with their rushing attack. Carey led the way with 62 yards on seven carries, and he finished with 80 on 12 totes. Bronson stepped in front of Bevil's intended receiver to make his damaging interception and sped 44 yards untouched to the north end zone to give the Cowboys a 24-10 lead with 9:24 remaining in the third quarter. On the Cardinals' second possession after he replaced Bevil at quarterback, Berry guided a seven-play, 98-yard drive that reduced the deficit to 24-17. On the first play of the fourth quarter, the freshman from Needville went over the middle to Sparks for the final 12 yards. The other big play in the drive was a 36-yard Berry pass to Hayes pass. The Cowboys forced a punt on Lamar's next possession, then drove 90 yards on six plays to score the touchdown that increased their lead to 31-17. The payoff was a quarterback draw by Spencer on which he outraced the Cardinal secondary for 67 yards with 4:38 left. Anderson scored his second touchdown of the night on a 2-yard dive with 3:55 remaining, and Jackson's 84-yard interception return came with 48 seconds left.

Receiving McN - Celestie 3-36; Babin 2-30; Jordan 1-22 LU - Hayes 14-189 1 TD; Venson 7-21; Ford 4-31; Jackson 2-43 BEAUMONT, - J.J. Hayes set the school record for receiving yards in a season and the mark for catches in a game in Lamar University's 45-17 loss to McNeese State. Hayes completed his sensational two-season Cardinal career by catching 14 passes for 189 yards and one touchdown. The 14 catches are one more than former Lamar star Herbert Harris caught in a 1981 game against Louisiana Tech, and the 189 yards boosted his season total to 951, giving him 33 more than Chris Ford had in 1989. Hayes, a 6-foot-3, 210-pound split end from Diboll, hauled in a 24-yard touchdown pass from Andre Bevil for the touchdown that gave the Cardinals a 7-3 lead in the first quarter. By halftime, he had nine catches for 113 yards, and he finished the third quarter with 12 for 165 yards. Hayes' final collegiate reception was a 17-yarder from backup quarterback Caleb Berry with 35 seconds remaining. The Cardinals threw four interceptions, including two for touchdowns - a 44 yarder in the third quarter by junior free safety Malcolm Bronson of Jasper and an 84-yarder in the game's final minute by junior cornerback Janzen Jackson. The Cowboys had a 67-yard touchdown dash by sophomore quarterback Dionta Spencer early in the fourth quarter. Bevil, a senior from West Orange-Stark, completed 17 of 36 passes for 186 yards and one touchdown before leaving the game with an elbow injury early in the third quarter. Berry, a freshman from Needville, went 16 for 23 for 150 yards and one touchdown - a 12-yarder to Jesse Sparks on the first play of the fourth quarter. Each quarterback threw two interceptions. Lamar's defenders stopped Cowboys three yards short of the north end zone on their first possession to force Josh Lewis' 20-yard field goal. The Cardinals then drove 80 yards on eight plays to seize a 7-3 lead on Bevil's 24-yard pass to Hayes and Justin Stout's extra point. Another key

The Southland Conference In an era of considerable change in intercollegiate athletics, the Southland Conference continues to be a model of innovation, stability and consistent achievement as it celebrates the academic and athletic accomplishments of its member institutions. What began as a small gathering of college administrators nearly 50 years ago, the Southland Conference has transformed itself into a dynamic and respected consortium of 11 member universities in four states. Beginning with a historic meeting of five institutions in Dallas on Tom Burnett Commissioner March 15, 1963, that included current member Lamar University (then Lamar State College of Technology), the Southland Conference set on an extraordinary course that has proven successful well into its fifth decade of existence. The successful transformation continues. On Oct. 11, 2011, the Southland Conference announced the addition of Oral Roberts University, effective for the 2012-13 academic year, marking the league’s first entry into the state of Oklahoma and the Tulsa metropolitan area. Shortly thereafter, on Nov. 21, the Southland announced the addition of Houston Baptist University for the 2013-14 academic year, giving the league an 11th member and its first institution in the region’s largest city, home to significant student-recruitment and alumni bases. In addition to its two newest members, the Southland Conference membership also consists of the University of Central Arkansas, Lamar University, McNeese State University, Nicholls State University, Northwestern State University, Sam Houston State University, Southeastern Louisiana University, Stephen F. Austin State University and Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi. All told, the membership of the Southland encompasses approximately 120,000 current students and an alumni base of nearly 700,000. Famous alums from current Southland Conference schools include former CBS news anchor Dan Rather (Sam Houston State), NBA executive Joe Dumars (McNeese State), ABC news anchor Robin Roberts (Southeastern Louisiana), major League Baseball stars Kevin Millar (Lamar) and Mike Miley (Southeastern Louisiana), NBA legend Scottie Pippen (Central Arkansas), Grammy Award-winning musicians Don Henley and Rodney Crowell (both Stephen F. Austin), NFL standout Lardarius Webb (Nicholls State), PGA Tour golfer Chris Stroud (Lamar), award-winning filmmaker Richard Linklater (Sam Houston State), American Idol winner Kris Allen (Central Arkansas), NCAA football coach Charlie Strong (Central Arkansas), TV personality Kathie Lee Gifford (Oral Roberts), and NFL coaching legend O.A. “Bum” Phillips (Lamar, Stephen F. Austin), The cities of the Southland are diverse and progressive, ranging from international business and cultural centers such as Houston, New Orleans, Tulsa and Little Rock, to the historical cities of Nacogdoches, Texas, and Natchitoches, La., to the home of the modern oil boom, Beaumont, Texas, to the unique Cajun French cultures found in the Louisiana cities of Thibodaux and Lake Charles. Southland Conference institutions also draw large numbers of students from the metropolitan areas of DallasFort Worth, San Antonio, Baton Rouge, Austin, and Shreveport. The Southland sponsors 17 championship sports, all at the NCAA Division I level. The eight men’s sports include baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, tennis, and indoor and outdoor track and field. The women compete for nine championships in basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, softball, tennis, indoor and outdoor track and field, and volleyball. The conference earns automatic qualification to NCAA championships in baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s

cross country, football, men’s and women’s golf, women’s soccer, softball, men’s and women’s tennis, and volleyball. Continuing its tradition of innovation, the league launched the Southland Conference Television Network in the fall of 2008 and has already broadcast more than 130 events. The network is expanding its reach to roughly 11 million households throughout Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas and Oklahoma in 2012-13. In its first four years, the regional network has received recognition for its work, earning College Sports Media and Telly Awards on a regular basis. The Southland Conference, in conjunction with the city of Frisco, Texas and Hunt Sports Group, also serves as the host to the NCAA Division I Football Championship Game in Frisco, which has been home to the conference headquarters since 2006. The game is played at Frisco’s FC Dallas Stadium. Southland Conference football ranks among the best Football Championship Subdivision leagues in the nation, and enjoys an annual expectation of competing for the national championship with multiple teams advancing to the NCAA playoffs each year. In 2011, Sam Houston State finished the regular season undefeated and ranked No. 1 nationally, and advanced to the NCAA national championship game. Also, in 2002 and 2003, McNeese State finished the regular season ranked No. 1 in the nation, and advanced to the 2002 national championship contest. The conference has been represented in seven national championship games since the league joined the Football Championship Subdivision (formerly IAA) in 1982. All told, Southland teams have played in 99 Division I playoff games in 30 years, winning 47 of the contests. Historically, the Southland’s successful football heritage has sustained itself through numerous membership and classification changes. Originally an NAIA conference, the Southland joined the NCAA College Division in 1968. The College Division was re-named NCAA Division II in 1973, and the league played two seasons in that class, before joining Division I in 1975. The Southland was an NCAA Division I-A league from 1978-81, before joining the ranks of FCS in 1982, its home ever since. During its tenure as a Division I-A conference, the Southland Conference was instrumental in the startup of the Independence Bowl in 1976. The Southland representative served as the host team of the bowl until 1980, compiling a 2-3 record in those contests. The conference can lay claim to five national championships, including College Division championships through former members Arkansas State (1970, UPI) and Louisiana Tech (1972, National Football Foundation). Louisiana Tech also won the first NCAA-sanctioned national title, winning the Division II playoffs in 1973. Tech followed that with the UPI’s Division II national championship in 1974. Louisiana-Monroe won the 1987 national championship. The Southland has produced 163 first-team football All-Americans during its history and in 2010, Stephen F. Austin quarterback Jeremy Moses became the first player in Southland history to receive the Walter Payton Award, which is presented annually to the most outstanding football player at the FCS level. The Southland is one of five FCS conferences with at least 200 selections (205) in the National Football League draft. The league also ranks third in the FCS with 25 players taken in the draft since 2000 and has 13 former players on NFL rosters heading into the 2012 season.

Football History


Lamar Football History From its birth as South Park Junior College in 1923, to its days as Lamar College, the ones as Lamar State College of Technology (Lamar Tech) and, finally, as Lamar University, the Cardinals have had an up-and-down – yet richand-proud football tradition. Actually, when South Park JC’s football players took the field for the first time only 12 days after the opening of the institution on Sept. 17, 1923, the team didn’t have a nickname. The players, who defeated South Park High School 25-0 at Beaumont’s old Magnolia Park that afternoon were identified as “the collegians” by sports writer Spike Cooper in the next day’s Beaumont Enterprise. Playing center for South Park JC in that first game was John Gray, later to serve the school as football coach from 1932 to 1939 and during two tenures as university president. Star running back for “the collegians” that day was Paul (Hog) Kinnear, and the team captain was fullback Ernest (Gus) Laminack. During its seven-game inaugural season, South Park JC played two high schools, three senior colleges and two senior college freshman teams and compiled a 2-4-1 record. The other win was a 10-0 decision over Stephen F. Austin College and the tie was 0-0 against Port Arthur High School. After the team’s midseason loss of 19-16 to Southwestern Louisiana, The Enterprise’s Cooper wrote, “From end to end and fullback to center, the collegians are the fightingest little football team we’ve ever seen.” Dunlap (Bull) Johnson became South Park JC’s football coach in 1924, and the 25player team responded with a splendid 7-3 season. The team rolled up a combined 122 points in E.A. “Beans” LaBauve was a t h r o w i n g 1979 inductee to the Cardinal four-succesHall of Honor. sive shutouts to open the season, and the student body selected Brahmas the nickname for the school’s athletic teams.

F.S. (Spud) Braden completed 13 of 18 passes for 190 yards, statistics uncommon to football in those days of run, run and run some more. The University of Texas freshman team handed the Brahmas their first loss 9-7, and their other defeats came against Southwestern Louisiana 20-8 and the Rice University freshmen 7-6. The Brahmas wore red jerseys for the first time that season, shedding the green and white colors of South Park High School. The 1925 season saw the Brahmas under the tutelage of yet another coach – Lilburn Dimmitt, and they slumped to a 1-5-2 record with the lone win being 6-0 over Beaumont High. The ties were 2-2 with the Rice freshmen and 0-0 with Stephen F. Austin College. Gray completed his three-year South Park JC playing career that season and at the unbelievably young age of 19 became head coach at South Park High School in 1926. As in the previous three seasons, the 1926 Brahmas had a new head football coach as Joe J. Vincent took over and guided them to a 2-4 record. The wins were 25-0 over Victoria Junior College and 9-0 over Sam Houston State. The 1930s With the home crowds dwindling below the 300 level for most of the 1926 season, the football program was discontinued for five years, but it returned in 1932 when the school name was changed to Lamar College in honor of Mirabeau Lamar, known as the founder of Texas education. Former South Park JC basketball star Otho Plummer, later to serve the university for many years as a member of the board of regents, picked Cardinals as the new school mascot. After compiling a 35-20-5 record in six seasons at South Park High School, Gray became Lamar College’s first football coach and guided the Cardinals to a 40-30-4 record over eight seasons, beginning with a fine 8-1 mark in 1932. The wins included a 39-0 blitzing of Blinn College, and the lone loss was 6-0 to the SMU freshmen in the mud and rain in Greenie Stadium on Thanksgiving Day. A blocked punt at the 3-yard line led to the game’s only touchdown. Season tickets for seven home games in 1932 were $1.50 each, a far cry from the $60 to $400 price range for season tickets for this year’s second season of Lamar football after its return from a 21-year hiatus. Another indication of how much football has changed over the years is that the average weight for the 1932 Cardinals was 158 pounds per man. Quarterback Jake Verde, who later played

his senior college football at Texas, led the 1932 Cardinals by running for four touchdowns and passing for six more, and he also served as the team’s kicker. The gem of the Cardinals’ John Gray became head 1932 season coach in 1932 and compiled was their 6-0 a 40-30-4 record over eight victory over seasons. heavily-favored Southwester n Louisiana, sparked by a 35-yard Verde-toErnest Byerly touchdown pass and two fourthquarter interceptions by Ovey Babin. By 1933, there were enough junior colleges playing football in Texas for the state to divide into sections and originate a plan to determine a state champion. Although the Cardinals weren’t as strong as they had been the previous year, they advanced to the state championship game but lost it to Amarillo Junior College 2714 in Beaumont’s Purple Stadium in mid-December. The Cardinals logged a 5-3-2 record during the regular season in 1933 and defeated Schreiner Institute 20-14 in the first round of the state playoffs. Defense was the trademark of that team as the Cardinals held nine opponents to seven or fewer points, although two of those games were scoreless ties. Actually, the tone for the season was set in the Cardinals’ opener when they piled up a whopping 24-4 advantage over East Texas Baptist in first downs and a 408-101 lead in total yards but lost on the scoreboard 7-6. Just past the mid-point of that season, nine different players scored 10 touchdowns as the Cardinals rang up a 71-0 blanking of Blinn College. Two weeks later, Verde exploded for touchdown runs of 83 and 67 yards, and he returned an interception 50 yards for another score in a 40-7 romp over Victoria Junior College. A near-perfect 7-0-1 regular season catapulted the 1934 Cardinals into the state playoffs again, and they edged Schreiner Institute 7-6 in their semifinal matchup. The Cards had to travel to the Panhandle, however, for their rematch with Amarillo Junior College in the championship game which they lost 34-7 despite being in a 7-7 tie at halftime.


Lamar Football History Early that season, the Cardinals won backto-back games against the Texas Shorthorns (the University of Texas’ freshman team) by the scores of 7-0 and 16-0, and they also tossed shutouts of 32-0 and 19-0 over St. Mary’s University and Victoria Junior College. The 1935 Cardinals slumped to a 4-2-1 regular-season record and lost their state playoff opener 20-0 to Schreiner Institute. The season was highlighted by a six-day railroad trip to Mexico City to oppose Mexico Poly in the first of several games played between the institutions over the coming years. Although the Cardinals posted a so-so 2-3 regular-season record in 1936, they qualified for the playoffs and came within 15 yards of winning a state title. Kilgore College held off a late Lamar drive at the 15-yard line to preserve its 10-7 championship win on Dec. 5, in Greenie Stadium. The 1937 Cardinals went 5-3 during the regular season and lost their playoff opener 14-6 to Schreiner Institute. They then hosted Mexico Poly in an exhibition game that they won 27-13. The final two seasons of the 1930s decade saw the Cardinals dip to records of 2-6-1 and 2-7. They suffered four shutouts in 1939 when they scored more than seven points in only one game – an 18-0 win over Texas Lutheran College. The 1939 season marked the end of the John Gray Era as football coach. In an article in The Houston Post, sports writer L.R. Goldman wrote, “John Gray always performed miracles with the material he had. He had the ability to get 110 percent from his players.” The 1940s R.M. (Monk) Hodgkiss moved over from South Park High School to succeed the popular Gray as head coach for the 1940 season. The Cardinals failed to even register a first down in his debut – a 27-0 loss to Kilgore College, and the Cards suffered three more shutouts during a lackluster 2-4-1 season. With victories in the last two games, Hodgkiss coaxed a break-even 4-4 season out of the Cardinals in 1941. Among the Cardinal players that year were Oail (Bum) Phillips and Theo (Cotton) Miles, both of whom went on to establish great reputations as football coaches – Miles at the high school level and Phillips at the high school, college and professional levels. With World War II escalating overseas, Lamar played the 1942 season with only 23 players, and the team went 2-6-1 under new

head coach Ted Dawson. The school then discontinued football for the remaining war years of 1943, 1944 and 1945. In 1946, Lamar College joined Tarleton State, Kilgore College, North Texas Agricultural College (the forerunner to UT Arlington), Paris Junior College, San Angelo JC and Schreiner Institute in creating the Southwestern Junior College Conference. Each school was obligated to field teams in football, basketball, track, tennis and golf, so thusly, Lamar’s first all-round intercollegiate athletic program developed. The Cardinals returned to the football field with resounding success in 1946, carving an 82 record under new coach Ted Jefferies, who won a state championship at Wichita Falls High School in 1941. As did many other hardnosed veterans, Bum Phillips returned from the war and captained the 1946 team that launched its season with an 83-0 dismantling of Decatur Baptist College. The Cardinals registered five other shutouts in 1946, and they outscored their opponents by a combined 241-37. Chick Forwald joined Lamar as head coach in 1947, and the Cardinals slipped to a 4-6 record. Stan Lambert became Lamar’s head football coach in 1948 and promptly guided the Cardinals to a 7-4 regular-season record and the school’s first berth in a bowl game. Playing before a home crowd in the season-ending Spindletop Bowl, the Cardinals easily disposed of Hinds (Miss.) Junior College 21-0. Cardinal stars that season included quarterback Joe Westerman, end Bob Frederick, running back Jimmy McNeil and offensive and defensive back Francis (Smitty) Hill. Lamar made its swan song as a junior college football program a huge success in 1949 by roaring to a Southwestern Junior College co-championship, a 10-2 record and two postseason bowl games. Along the way, the Cardinals scored a school-record 346 points. At the conclusion of the season, the Cardinals lost a 21-20 heartbreaker to Pearl River (Miss.) in the Memorial Bowl in Jackson, Miss. Back home in the Spindletop Bowl, the Cards rolled to a 35-14 win over Georgia Military Institute behind the runBob Frederick ning and passing of Mcstarred in football, Neil and two touchdown basketball and catches by Frederick. baseball at Lamar.

The 1950s Although it remained a junior college for one last year, Lamar began its transition to senior college status by lining up an all-senior-college schedule for the 1950 season. Despite being outmanned by some teams, Lambert’s Cardinals managed a 5-4-1 record highlighted by victories of 34-7 over Southwest Oklahoma State and 75-0 over Daniel Baker College. The Cardinals intercepted six passes in the win over Southwest Oklahoma, and eight different Cardinals scored at least one touchdown in the rout of Daniel Baker College. Lamar’s name changed to Lamar State College of Technology for its first official season as a four-year institution in 1951 – one that saw the Cardinals go 6-4 overall and 2-3 in the Lone Star Conference. That season saw the emergence of wiry running back Sammy Carpenter, a 144-pounder from Orange, as Lamar’s first real superstar. He rushed for 607 yards and scored 54 points as a freshman. In his sophomore season of 1952, Carpenter set long-lasting s c h o o l records of 210 rushing yards vs. Sul Ross State, 1,005 rushing yards for the season J.B. Higgins coached Lamar’s and 13 only undefeated team to an 8-0-2 record in 1957. touchdowns for 78 points in the season. The 210 yards stood until Burton Murchison broke the mark with 222 yards vs. Prairie View A&M and then 259 yards vs. Rice later in the 1985 season; the 1,005 yards stood until Murchison ran for 1,547 in 1985, and the 78 points in a season remain a school record. After winning two of their first three games in 1952, the Cardinals stumbled to six-straight losses and a 2-7 record marred by losses of 480 to East Texas State and 66-7 to Trinity University. When Lambert moved up to director of athletics in 1953, his top assistant J.B. Higgins took over as head coach and began what would become the most successful era in Lamar’s

Lamar Football History football history. Known affectionately as “Hig” by his friends, Higgins went 37 in each of his first two seasons, but improvement began to show in 1955 (4-6 record) and Sammy Carpenter had Lamar’s 1956 (4-4-1). first 1,000-yard rushing season The Cardiwith 1,005 yards in 1951. nals then enjoyed the school’s only undefeated record with an 8-0-2 mark in 1957. Carpenter ended his senior season in 1954 with 2,703 career rushing yards, a figure that now ranks second only to the 3,598 yards compiled by Murchison over the 1984-1987 seasons. Higgins, who compiled a 59-38-4 record in his 10-season tenure as head coach, pointed to the 4-4-1 1956 season as being the most pivotal for Lamar’s improving program. The Cardinals gave an indication of what was to come in the near future when they clobbered Sul Ross State 34-7 in their finale. Ties of 7-7 with Sam Houston State and 1313 with Texas A&I were the only glitches in the Cardinals’ superb 1957 season that saw 270-pound offensive and defensive lineman Dudley Meredith become Lamar’s first bonafide All-America selection. The ties forced the Cardinals to share the Lone Star Conference championship with East Texas State, a team they edged 7-6. In their season finale, the Cards rolled up a then school-record 562 yards of total offense in a 67-19 trouncing of Sul Ross State. For an encore in 1958, the Cardinals got defensive-minded as they led the LSC in rushing defense, passing defense and total defense while carving a 6-2 record. Their losses – in back-to-back games against Howard Payne and Southwest Texas State – were by a total of six points, and they outscored their opposition by 188-52 for the season. By winning their first seven games in 1959, the Cardinals climbed to No. 1 in the nation in all of the college division polls. They outscored their opponents by a 21.1-4.9 average margin during that streak that ended with a 14-12 loss to Howard Payne. They also lost their next two

96

games to Texas A&I and East Texas State before closing their 8-3 season with a 27-14 victory over Sam Houston State. Guard John Donaho and fullback Shepard Touchett were All-LSC performers for the Cardinals in 1959, and Ronnie Fontenot led the team in rushing with 551 yards. The 1960s For the seventh-straight year, Lamar won its season opener in 1960 as scatbacks Jimmy Davis and Ronnie Fontenot dazzled the Mexico Poly Burros with broken-field running in a 42-6 victory played before a crowd of 3,000 in Port Neches. Higgins’ Cardinals went on to post eight wins for the second-straight season and the third time in four years as they went 84, including a 5-2 mark in the LSC. Davis had 123 rushing yards and Fontenot 111 in the win over Mexico Poly, and that game marked the starting debut for Windell Hebert, who went on to become one of Lamar’s most durable and reliable quarterbacks. A 20-0 loss to Louisiana Tech in Week 2 was Lamar’s first by shutout in seven years, but the Cardinals were blanked twice more during the season – by Texas A&I and by East Texas State. They rebounded, however, to win their final two games 18-7 over Sam Houston State and 4121 over South Dakota. With 457 yards, Fontenot led the team in rushing for a second-straight season, and he earned All-LSC recognition along with guard Nader Bood. That season also saw the emergence of Bobby Jancik, who later was American Football League Rookie of the Year as a defensive back for the 1962 Houston Oilers. Jancik reached stardom and Little All-America status the next season as he helped lead Higgins’ Cardinals to an 8-2-1 record and a berth in the 1961 Tangerine Bowl, the top postseason game for College Division schools. He scored 62 points, rushed for 302 yards and caught 16 passes for an additional 357 yards, including fourth-quarter touchdown snares of 64 and 55 yards in a 38-34 come-from-behind win over Northeast Louisiana in the Cardinals’ season opener.. The 1961 Cardinals scored 282 points to set a school record that stood until the 1987 team bettered it by a scant point. Joining Jancik as offensive mainstays that season were Hebert, Fontenot, Jimmy Davis, Armour McManus and Ralph Stone. Hebert, who passed for 1,214 yards and 11 touchdowns that year, was stunned by the death of his mother at mid-season but two days later threw for 109 yards in a 33-13 victory over Howard Payne before a

crowd of 9,000 in Greenie Stadium. Defensive leaders in 1961 included linebacker Lindley King from Orange and safety David Webb, who intercepted a still-standing school-record seven passes. The J.B. Higgins era as head coach ended after the 1962 season during which the Cardinals posted a 7-3 record to improve his 10-season record to 58-38-4. Two of the Cards’ losses that season were seven-point LSC decisions to Texas A&I and Southwest Texas State, both ranked in the NAIA’s Top 10. Hebert threw for a then school-record 231 yards in the loss to Southwest Texas, and he finished his senior season with 81 completions for 1,112 yards and seven TDs. King was both a first-team All-LSC and first-team Little AllAmerica selection. As Lamar moved from the NAIA and the Lone Star Conference to the NCAA and the Southland Conference in 1963, Vernon Glass succeeded Higgins as head football coach. The former Rice University quarterback and Baylor University assistant coach went on to win a school-record 63 games over an up-and-down 13-season career with the Cardinals. The popular Glass got off to a 5-4 start in 1963, and his up seasons included marks of 73 in 1967, 8-3 in 1972 and 8-2 in 1974. Glass’ down seasons saw the Cardinals go 0-10 in 1968 and 1-10 in 1975, his last year. At the mid-point of his first season as head coach, Glass made the bold move of turning over the quarterback reins to Phillip Primm, a red-headed freshman who eventually led the Cardinals to three-straight SLC championships. He led the Cardinals in passing and total offense in each of his four seasons and remains No. 2 career-wise in both categories with 4,036 passing yards and 4,379 total yards. Lamar football moved on campus for the first time in 1964 as the Cardinals christ e n e d 17,150-seat Cardinal Stadium with a 21-0 victory over Jake David was an All-SouthEast Central land Conference player for the Cardinals in 1965 & 1966. Oklahoma.


Lamar Football History Darrell Johnson scored the first touchdown in stadium history on a 30-yard run in the second quarter, and the Cardinals went on to post a 63-1 record, win the SLC championship and earn a berth in the 1964 Pecan Bowl. The Cardinals’ losses that season were by a combined eight points – 33-28 to the San Diego Marines, 13-12 to Texas A&I and 19-17 to State College of Iowa in the Pecan Bowl. While Primm, Harold LaFitte and Dan Yezak led the offense that season, lineman Anthony Guillory and linebacker Vernon McManus sparked the defense. A gem to the 1964 season was a non-conference, 21-14 victory over major college foe New Mexico State. Primm helped spark that win by completing 12 of 18 passes for 130 yards. Although Primm was plagued by injuries, the Cardinals managed a 6-4 record and another SLC championship in 1965. Primm’s two-point conversion pass to Frazer Dealy in the last two minutes enabled the Cards to nip East Central Oklahoma 15-14 in their opener, and they won three of their next four games before suffering back-to-back losses to Texas A&I and Southwestern Louisiana. Included in the early-season burst was a 20-7 victory over Arkansas State witnessed by a then-record crowd of 16,000 in Cardinal Stadium. The Cardinals clinched the SLC championship with a 21-3 triumph over Trinity University in which fullback Eugene Washington reeled off a then school-record 85-yard TD run. Primm, McManus, LaFitte, Jake David, Dick Croxton, Ed Marcontell, Bill Kilgore and Mike Allman were All-SLC picks that season. With Primm passing for a then schoolrecord 1,549 yards, the 1966 Cardinals shared the SLC championship with Texas-Arlington, a team they defeated 27-7. A 23-14 loss to Trinity University prevented the Cards from winning the title outright. Primm hit his high water mark of the season by completing 14 of 18 passes for 224 yards and four TDs in a 42-16 SLC romp over Abilene Christian, and linebacker Danny Jones led the Cards with 15 tackles in a 17-0 blanking of Arkansas State. Another big win that season was a 31-16 decision over Terry Bradshaw-led Louisiana Tech. Lamar’s bid for a fourth-successive SLC championship ended in the final game of the 1967 season when Skipper Butler kicked three field goals to help UTA defeat the Cards 1610. Still, they won seven-straight games over one stretch and finished the season with a fine 7-3 record. Randy McCollum took over as starting

quarterback that season and came within 16 yards of P r i m m ’s then school record with 1,533 passing yards. To m m i e Smiley, a 232-pound running back, was the team’s Coach Vernon Glass guided leading the Cardinals to Southland rusher with Conference Championships in 890 yards. 1964, 1965, 1966 & 1971. Croxton became the first Cardinal to earn a thirdsuccessive All-SLC award, and Kilgore, Johnny Fuller and offensive guard Spergon Wynn were all picked for a second time, while Darrell Mingle, Richard Bjerke and Bill Groberg were firstyear picks. The Cardinals came close to winning three times during their 0-10 1968 season, but they never quite pulled off the needed big play in losses of 16-14 to New Mexico State, 20-14 to Southwestern Louisiana and 24-20 to Trinity. Still, sophomore split end Ronnie Gebauer caught a then school-record 56 passes for 831 yards, and defensive tackle Richard Cummings and defensive back Benny Lansford were AllSLC performers. The Cardinals ended the 1960s decade with a 3-7 record in 1969 but went 0-4 in the SLC. Their wins came against McNeese State, New Mexico State and Southern Illinois in their first four games, and they ended the season with six-straight losses. An example of the Cardinals’ futility that season came in their game against Louisiana Tech. Quarterback Tommy Tomlin threw for 308 yards and a school-record six touchdowns, but he didn’t come close to matching the numbers put up by Terry Bradshaw in a 77-40 Tech win. The 1970s The 1970 Cardinals started their season impressively, upsetting West Texas State 33-28 as Tomlin completed 12 of 14 passes and then holding off Louisiana Tech 6-0 in a rainstorm in Cardinal Stadium in Week 2. A 32-16 road loss to Southern Illinois sidetracked the Cards the next week, and Tomlin went down with a

practice injury a few days later that kept him our of action for four games. The Cards went on to lose six more games in a row before blanking Texas-Arlington 24-0 in the finale of their 3-7 season. They surrendered 309 points in 10 games, a dubious record that stood until the 1986 and 1987 teams gave up 339 and 386 points in back-to-back seasons. Gebauer had 39 catches for 540 yards in 1970 to become the first and still only Cardinal to amass more than 2,000 receiving yards. His 149 career catches and 2,098 career yards remain at the top of Lamar’s career lists. Also, Bennie Lansford finished his career that year with a still-standing 14 interceptions. With Lamar languishing with a 1-4 record at the midpoint of the 1971 season, Glass rolled the dice by switching from the I Formation on offense to the Wishbone T. With squatty quarterback Glen Hill at the controls of the Wishbone, it produced four-successive wins to close the season and a tie with Louisiana Tech and Trinity University for the SLC championship. The streak started with a 30-28 win over Abilene Christian in which Hill rushed for 100 yards and kicked the winning 30-yard field goal. Glass’ 1972 Cardinals pulled off a 42-28 road upset of Texas-El Paso in their second game and went on to post a fine 8-3 record. Doug Matthews, later to become Galveston’s city manager and a Lamar regent, rushed for 101 yards in the UTEP game and for a teambest 689 yards for the season. A first-quarter field goal of 41 yards by Mike Drake stood up as the Cardinals defeated Southwestern Louisiana 3-0 as cornerback Donald Hill sparked the defense with two interceptions. Another highlight to the season was Matthews’ 135-yard rushing performance in a 25-19 road victory over New Mexico State. Matthews, offensive tackle Charles Cantrell, split end Joe Bowser and safety Rondy Colbert were all first-team All-SLC selections. Lamar gained major college classification in football for the 1973 season, and the Cardinals compiled a 5-5 record against a beefed-up schedule that included road games at New Mexico State, Drake University and Texas-El Paso. They scored 17 fourth-quarter points to win the UTEP game 31-27 as Bobby Flores passed 8 yards to Steve DeRouen for the winning touchdown with a mere 12 seconds remaining. The Cardinals also scored late in their matching 10-7 SLC wins over Arkansas State and Texas-Arlington. Flores threw 11 yards to Larry Spears for the clinching score against Arkansas State, and Jabo Leonard booted a 27-

Lamar Football History yard field goal for the winning points against UTA. Joe Bowser, who led the Cardinals in receiving with 38 catches for 545 yards and three TDs, was their lone offensive representative on the 1973 All-SLC First Team, while end Leon Babineaux and safety Rondy Colbert, who later played in the NFL, were defensive first-teamers. Bolstered by nine returning offensive starters and 10 defensive regulars from the 1973 team, Glass’ 1974 Cardinals went on to post a fine 8-2 season. They won six of their first seven games, and their only losses were 37-21 to Mississippi State and 28-0 to perennially-tough Louisiana Tech. Fullback Dale Spence ran for two TDs in the Cardinals’ 18-6 season-opening victory over Drake University, and a 64-yard scoring pass from Flores to Larry Spears helped spark their 27-7 triumph at North Texas State the next week. Flores ran for two TDs, and cornerback Audwin Samuel returned an interception 60 yards for another score as the Cardinals defeated Southwestern Louisiana 38-13 in Week 3. While subbing for the injured Flores in the Cardinals’ SLC opener at Arkansas State, Al Rabb connected with running back Anthony Pendland for a 65-yard TD pass with 2:11 left to give LU a 10-6 win. The Cardiac Cardinals did it again the next week as Donald Hill’s 29yard interception return set up Jabo Leonard’s 24-yard field goal with a mere four seconds remaining to give Lamar a 10-7 victory over Southern Mississippi. Leonard and the defense combined to give the Cards a 9-7 road victory over West Texas State the next week. Leonard booted three field goals, including ones of 24 and 45 yards in the fourth quarter with the winning one coming with 48 seconds left. After the loss to Louisiana Tech, the Cards closed their season with wins of 17-3 over McNeese State and 8-0 over Texas-Arlington. The Cardinals’ points in the UTA game came on two field goals and a safety. The Cardinals’ defense, which ranked 12th in the nation in Division I that season, held seven of their 10 opponents to seven or fewer points. Colbert, Hill, linebacker Ronald Black, tackle Donnie Davis and end Leon Babineaux were all honored on the 1974 All-SLC team, along with offensive guard Keith Elliott. From the astonishing high of the 1974 season, the Cardinals dropped to a disappointing low of a 1-10 campaign in 1975. Injuries to key personnel played a major role in the downward spiral, but it still cost Glass as he was replaced

Lamar Football History by calling the shots in a 58-27 dismantling of Western Kentucky in their next game, causing Cardinal Stadium to swell with a standingroom-only crowd of 17,600 for their home debut against Louisiana Tech the next week. Kennan’s troops did not disappoint the enthusiastic crowd as they responded with a 197 victory, Lamar’s first since 1970 over Tech’s Bulldogs. Linebacker Kurt Phoenix sparked the fireworks against Western Kentucky by returning the opening kickoff a school-record 98 yards for a touchdown, and by the time that sunny Kentucky afternoon ended, Haynes and fellow LU quarterback Mike Long had combined for 323 passing yards, six shy of the then school record. Other highlights of that day included split end Jesse Cavil streaking 72 yards down the sideline for a TD after catching a Haynes pass, Robinson popping open in the end zone twice for TD receptions, defensive end Terry Lee Williams returning an interception 26 yards for a TD and the defense coming up with six total turnovers. With Haynes at the offensive controls, the 1979 Cardinals averaged 248.5 passing yards and 24.7 points per game, and they notched three wins against SLC competition – two more than the previous four LU teams had managed. Haynes had a 276-yard passing performance against Western Kentucky, a 258-yarder against West Texas State, a 262-yarder against McNeese State and a 286-yarder vs. Northwestern State, but they were just routine outings compared to his record-smashing 403-yard output against UT Arlington. For the season, he had 233 completions on 402 attempts for 2,641 yards and 21 TDs. The 143-pound Robinson was Haynes’ favorite target as he logged three 100-yard-plus receiving games and finished the season with record totals of 59 catches, 840 receiving yards and 12 TDs. Despite his brilliance as a passer, Haynes was relegated to a second-team berth on the All-SLC Team, but Robinson, Enard, Phoenix and tight end Alfred Mask were all first-teamers. Joining Haynes on the second team were offensive tackle Kenny Birkes and cornerback/kick returner Johnny Ray Smith. The 1980s Depleted by the departures of Haynes, Robinson, Phoenix, Enard and several other key contributors, the 1980 Cardinals lacked experience and depth and, consequently, dipped

to a 3-8 record. They opened with a 41-8 victory at Texas Southern, but eventual Southwest Conference champion Baylor pounded them 42-7 before a standing-room-only crowd of 18,500 in their home opener, and Drake was a 38-7 winner in Game 3. The Cardinals righted their ship with a 4521 victory over Stephen F. Austin, but fourstraight losses followed before they edged Arkansas State 23-22 for their final victory. One of the positives to the season was that freshman quarterback Ray Campbell from Livingston steadily progressed into a competent passer, completing 157 of 296 attempts for 1,491 yards and seven TDs. Flanker Sam Choice, who led the team with 34 catches for 579 yards and four TDs, was a first-team All-SLC selection along with Smith, the team leader in kickoff returns and punt returns. The first two games of 1981 produced the biggest highlights of the season. First, Mike Marlow calmly kicked a 42-yard field goal with three seconds left to give the Cardinals an 1817 road upset of defending SWC champion Baylor, then the Cards traveled to the Houston Astrodome and destroyed Sam Houston State 50-7 as Cavil caught three TD passes and Herbert Harris two. The Cardinals’ other wins in their 4-6-1 season were decisions of 17-13 over Northeast Louisiana and 14-12 over Southwestern Louisiana, and the tie was 20-20 vs. McNeese State. Junior college transfer Fred Hessen beat out Campbell for the starting quarterback job that season, and he threw five TD passes in the Sam Houston State game. He finished the season with 182 completions on 365 attempts for 2,108 yards and 14 TDs. Harris, who had 13 catches for 192 yards in a 16-7 loss to Louisiana Tech, set school records with 61 catches for 911 yards and seven TDs, while Ben Booker led the team with 569 rushing yards. Linebacker Charles Broussard led the team in tackles with 96, and strong safety David Jones and linebacker Larry McCoy had 88 each. Late in the spring of 1982, Kennan departed Lamar to take an assistant’s job with the Oakland Raiders, and Ken Stephens, who had coached Central Arkansas to a 10-season record of 67-35-6, was hired on June 2 to succeed him. Stephens found coaching at the NCAA Division I-AA level to be a bit more difficult than it had been at the NAIA level. His best season was his first when the Cardinals went 4-7 in 1982, and he departed after producing an 11-

33 record over four years. The 1982 Cardinals struggled offensively as they suffered three shutouts and also scored only three points in a 45-point loss to the University of Houston. Their wins were 24-14 over Stephen F. Austin, 27-7 over Sam Houston State, 28-17 over Texas Southern and 12-3 over McNeese State. Stephens did, however, coach two, firstteam Division 1-AA All-Americas – both as sophomores in linebacker Eugene Seale in 1983 and running back Burton Murchison in 1985. A product of Jasper High School, Seale intercepted a pass on his first collegiate play and returned it 52 yards for a TD against Nicholls. He went on to win the SLC Defensive Player of the Week Award an unprecedented five times, to amass a school-record 170 tackles (85 solos and 85 assists) and was voted the SLC Defensive Player of the Year in addition to earning the All-America award. A 5-foot-11, 205-pounder from Woodville, Murchison made his first big splash in the second game of his sophomore season when he rushed for 222 yards and two TDs in a 30-7 victory over Prairie View A&M. He surpassed the 200-yard barrier in two other games, including a school-record 259 in a 29-28 road loss to Rice University. With his Division I-AA-leading 1,547 rushing yards in 1985, Murchison shattered both the Lamar and SLC single-season records. In addition to his All-America award, he was the SLC Offensive Player of the Year. The 1986 season ushered in the Ray Alborn Era as head coach. He went 2-9 in his first season, 3-8 in each of the next two and 5-5 in 1989, Lamar’s last before the program was discontinued due to mounting deficits in its operation.

Following a 38-10 loss to Sam Houston State, Lamar earned a 14-0 homecoming day win over Langston. The game against Langston drew 17,306 fans for the third best crowd in the history of the stadium as Lamar averaged 16,079 fans per game for the highest attendance of any Southland Conference school. The Cards would drop three straight games, falling 26-0 to South Alabama, 31-6 at North Dakota and 23-17 at Georgia State. However, Lamar rebounded to earn home wins over South Dakota (24-20) and Oklahoma Panhandle State (44-6) to close the year. After returning to the field in 2010, the Cardinals were official football playing members of the Southland Conference in 2011. Lamar managed a 4-7 record on the year, including a 2-5 mark in Southland Conference competition. The records continued in the 2011 season as the Cardinals set or tied 13 school marks, including largest margin of victory with a season-opening 58-0 win over Texas College. In that same game, junior transfer running back DePauldrick Garrett established school records for touchdowns in a game (4) and points scored in a game (24). After a 30-8 setback at South Alabama, the Cards posted back-to-back wins with a 45-35 home win over Incarnate Word and a 48-38 win at Southeastern Louisiana. Lamar would suffer a five-game losing streak following the wins before picking up a 34-26 Southland Conference win over Nicholls. LU closed the year with a 45-17 loss to rival McNeese State. Senior wide receiver J.J. Hayes, who earned second-team all-conference recognition, set three school records. Hayes had a single-game record 212 receiving yards against Northwestern State, single-game receptions (14) against McNeese State and 951 receiving yards on the year to establish a single-season standard. Kicker Justin Stout added to the individual records as he matched a school mark with eight extra point kicks in the Texas College win and a new single-season record for extra points converted with 35.
