WELCOME TO LORAS COLLEGE Dear Duhawk Fans, I am thrilled to welcome you to Bierie Field in the Rock Bowl on the campus of Loras College. The entire Loras community is glad you are here to experience our historic, beautiful and state-of-the-art facilities. Whether you are here of the first time or back again, please know that you are welcomed by our athletic department, faculty and staff and most importantly our student body.

HOME OF THE DUHAWKS:THE ROCK BOWL Renovated for the start of the 2005 season, the Rock Bowl is now a state-of-the-art facility with all of the history of the Rock Bowl and still in the same location – right in the center of the Loras campus. Field turf enables the Rock Bowl to not only house the football team, but also the Loras soccer teams and Wahlert Catholic High School football. With the high-tech video scoreboard, brand new bleacher seating for 3,500 spectators, a purple track and a fully equipped press box, the Rock Bowl will be the home of Loras football for many years to come.

The Loras College athletic department is constantly striving to extend the classroom for all of our studentathletes. Teachable moments occur for our coaches and student-athletes literally hundreds of times a day at practice and games. Traits like strength of character, sportsmanship, a solid work ethic and teamwork are taught and reinforced to produce Loras College alumni who will serve the world with integrity! As members of the National Collegiate Athletic Association and the Iowa Intercollegiate Athletic Conference, another department goal is to compete at the highest level in all athletic venues. Our coaches are recruiting not only young men and women of character, but also athletically gifted and talented young people. It is my belief that you will see well rounded student-athletes who demonstrate both integrity and athletic prowess today. In the end, we hope you enjoy your day at Loras College. We hope you are able to spend time on the entire campus and experience the tradition and engaging personalities that make us all Duhawks. Thanks for coming and as always…Go Duhawks! Bob Quinn (’86) Director of Athletics

ATHLETIC AND WELLNESS CENTER

...AND DUHAWK FOOTBALL

On behalf of our entire coaching staff, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2011 Loras College football season. As a Loras College alumnus, I am especially honored to return to the Rock Bowl and lead this group of young men as head football coach. My memories of Loras College, my growth as a young man on this campus, and my deeply held convictions about what it means to be a Duhawk have all contributed to my return. I believe Loras College football has a bright future, and that future begins in 2011. We have talented and hard-working Duhawks on this roster who understand the expectations we as a coaching staff have for them both on the football field and in the classroom. This understanding, commitment, and appetite for success provides us with a formula we believe will produce disciplined football on Saturdays as well as graduates of Loras College we can all be proud of. Our student-athletes are proud to call themselves Duhawks and we expect to compete every day with intensity, toughness, consistency, commitment, poise, and enthusiasm. We’re glad you can experience these things with us today as a part of the Duhawk family. Enjoy the game! Sincerely,

Paul Mierkiewicz (’89) Head Football Coach

Football Academic Success Program At Loras College, academic success is the primary goal for our student-athletes and the support system provided for them is an essential part of their success in the classroom. This program is designed to provide specific, thorough and individualized resources to our athletes by utilizing the professional staff in place at Loras College – along with a team of dedicated tutors and committed professors from across campus. Like football, this program is a team effort. Kyle Klapatauskas, our academic success and retention coordinator, helps facilitate and organize tutors, special study sessions and lectures on how to achieve academic success. Helena Hall leads the Writing Center where our athletes go to receive help developing, writing and editing papers. In addition to these resources, we also offer a Math Lab staffed by the mathematics department faculty. The final piece of the team is made up of our Faculty Athletics Representatives – Deb Sazama and Hugh Graham. These two faculty members play a large role in building strong relationships with the entire faculty and provide a constant voice ensuring balance between academics and athletics. Football Academic Success Program • Study hours monitored by coaches and academic success professionals • Academic planner and instruction on how to use effectively • Regularly scheduled grade checks to identify problems quickly • Proactive player-coach meetings • Full access to the writing center, math lab, tutors, and supplemental instruction sessions

Chuck Yrigoyen IIAC Commissioner

Founded in 1923 and recognized as one of the top NCAA III leagues in the nation, the Iowa Intercollegiate Athletic Conference consists of nine private, liberal arts institutions. The IIAC sponsors 15 intercollegiate championships in men’s and women’s sports. The IIAC has proven to be one of the nation’s most dominant conferences, annually having many of its teams finish highly at the NCAA III national level. IIAC MISSION STATEMENT The Iowa Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (IIAC) consists of independent, regionally accredited, residential four-year, liberal arts colleges that share common academic philosophies and goals and that place primary emphasis on the academic progress of students. To that end the athletic programs of IIAC member institutions facilitate the intellectual, spiritual and physical development of all students, whether as participants or spectators. Members of the IIAC place highest priority on the overall quality of the educational experience of our student-athletes and their successful completion of it. Therefore, the member colleges seek to provide an environment in which athletic activities are conducted as an integral part of our student-athletes’ educational experience. In that vein, intercollegiate competition is provided by the IIAC to develop participants’ skills in self-discipline, teamwork, fair play, sportsmanship and ethical conduct; it is not provided primarily to serve the entertainment needs of spectators nor the talent needs of professional sports teams. Student-athletes in the IIAC should experience growth of physical and mental skills as well as an appreciation for the rewards of adequate preparation and superior performance. They also should learn to work and play with others who are unlike themselves but who are talented and productive persons. They also should experience the pride of representing an organization, not just themselves, and the responsibility of proper conduct that comes with it. But primarily, they should have the opportunity to excel in their academic work as well as in their athletic endeavors; competitive events and practice sessions will be scheduled to minimize the potential conflict between academic and athletic excellence. In sum, athletic competition in the IIAC serves to encourage our students to participate in activities beyond the classroom, to enhance skills helpful to career success, and to assist them in their general development as human beings.

Loras College Football Service Work For the fifth consecutive spring the Loras College football team volunteered their time on a Saturday to Camp Albrecht Acres in nearby Sherrill, Iowa. Albrecht Acres “provides a unique environment for people with special needs” in the tri-state area. Activities offered by Albrecht Acres include nature study, camping, fishing, swimming, dances, nature trails, hay rides, volleyball, and disc golf.

In Loving Memory of Jack

61

Beginning in 2009, a young man by the name of John Patrick (Jack) Callahan III was to join the Loras College community and football team as he began his life as a young man outside of the walls of his Chicago, Illinois home. On the day of his 2009 graduation from Marist High School, Jack entered into eternal life following a seizure while he slept at his home. Jack was set to transition from his life as a RedHawk defensive lineman to that of a Duhawk defensive lineman. The Loras College community, football coaches and student-athletes continue to extend their prayers to Jack and the Callahan family in 2011. In recognition of his life - and Jack’s impact on those around him - no one on the Loras College football team will wear jersey number 61, his number at Marist High School, until the fall of 2013, when it would have been available again for someone else to wear. Rest in peace, John Patrick Callahan III.

Hello from TEAM DUHAWK! Last year, we launched Team Duhawk with great response from alumni, parents, and the community. We are excited to continue this new tradition at Loras College. Team Duhawk is the “team behind the teams.” Team Duhawk supports the mission of the Loras College Department of Athletics and provides our student-athletes with the resources they need to succeed in and out of the classroom. With the rising costs of travel and need to remain competitive in the Iowa Intercollegiate Athletic Conference and the NCAA Division III, your support is needed. Your gift will provide opportunities for all student-athletes to train and compete at the highest levels, while also growing intellectually, spiritually, and personally. The first $25 of your gift will benefit the Team Duhawk General Athletic Fund, which supports all 21 varsity sports, the athletic training department, the spirit squad, and our athletic facilities. Any additional amount may be designated to an area of your choice. Thank you for your past support and for considering joining today! Sincerely,

Bob Quinn (’86) Director of Athletics P.S. You can follow the Duhawks, sign up for text message updates, and hear live broadcasts at www.duhawks.com. The Duhawks can also be found on Facebook and Twitter.

WELCOME TO LORAS COLLEGE Dear Duhawk Fans, I am thrilled to welcome you to Bierie Field in the Rock Bowl on the campus of Loras College. The entire Loras community is glad you are here to experience our historic, beautiful and state-of-the-art facilities. Whether you are here of the first time or back again, please know that you are welcomed by our athletic department, faculty and staff and most importantly our student body.

HOME OF THE DUHAWKS:THE ROCK BOWL Renovated for the start of the 2005 season, the Rock Bowl is now a state-of-the-art facility with all of the history of the Rock Bowl and still in the same location – right in the center of the Loras campus. Field turf enables the Rock Bowl to not only house the football team, but also the Loras soccer teams and Wahlert Catholic High School football. With the high-tech video scoreboard, brand new bleacher seating for 3,500 spectators, a purple track and a fully equipped press box, the Rock Bowl will be the home of Loras football for many years to come.

The Loras College athletic department is constantly striving to extend the classroom for all of our studentathletes. Teachable moments occur for our coaches and student-athletes literally hundreds of times a day at practice and games. Traits like strength of character, sportsmanship, a solid work ethic and teamwork are taught and reinforced to produce Loras College alumni who will serve the world with integrity! As members of the National Collegiate Athletic Association and the Iowa Intercollegiate Athletic Conference, another department goal is to compete at the highest level in all athletic venues. Our coaches are recruiting not only young men and women of character, but also athletically gifted and talented young people. It is my belief that you will see well rounded student-athletes who demonstrate both integrity and athletic prowess today. In the end, we hope you enjoy your day at Loras College. We hope you are able to spend time on the entire campus and experience the tradition and engaging personalities that make us all Duhawks. Thanks for coming and as always…Go Duhawks! Bob Quinn (’86) Director of Athletics

ATHLETIC AND WELLNESS CENTER

...AND DUHAWK FOOTBALL

On behalf of our entire coaching staff, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2011 Loras College football season. As a Loras College alumnus, I am especially honored to return to the Rock Bowl and lead this group of young men as head football coach. My memories of Loras College, my growth as a young man on this campus, and my deeply held convictions about what it means to be a Duhawk have all contributed to my return. I believe Loras College football has a bright future, and that future begins in 2011. We have talented and hard-working Duhawks on this roster who understand the expectations we as a coaching staff have for them both on the football field and in the classroom. This understanding, commitment, and appetite for success provides us with a formula we believe will produce disciplined football on Saturdays as well as graduates of Loras College we can all be proud of. Our student-athletes are proud to call themselves Duhawks and we expect to compete every day with intensity, toughness, consistency, commitment, poise, and enthusiasm. We’re glad you can experience these things with us today as a part of the Duhawk family. Enjoy the game! Sincerely,

Paul Mierkiewicz (’89) Head Football Coach
