Racer Legends Derrick Cullors rushed for a school-record 1,765 yards and 17 touchdowns in his All-America season of 1995. He eclipsed the 100-yard mark in nine of the 12 games, including rushing for over 200 yards against Western Illinois (253), Southeast Missouri (252) and Austin Peay (202). For his efforts, Cullors finished third in the voting for the Walter Payton Award.

In just two years at Murray State, Justin Fuente ranks in the top three for career passing yards, attempts, completions and touchdowns. In 1999, Fuente set single-season records for passing yards (3,498), attempts (400), completions (240) and touchdowns (27). Furente was selected as a finalist for the Walter Payton Award following the 1999 season. He tossed for over 300 yards in 10 of his 22 career games for the Racers.

Nathan Williams was a First-Team All-America selection in 2008 after he led the FCS by averaging 14.9 tackles per game. His 179 tackles established a new school record, while his 396 career tackles rank fourth all-time. Williams became the first finalist for the Buck Buchanan Award since 1996, finishing fifth in the voting. 4


Retired Numbers

Larry Tillman’s #10 was retired after he rewrote the record books from 1965-68. The 1968 OVC Player of the Year owned 19 Murray State records and a number of OVC records when he graduated. Tillman ranks four on MSU’s career list for passing yards (5,037) and touchdowns (47). He also ranks fifth in attempts (728) and sixth in completions (367).

Michael Proctor’s #11 was retired after his record-setting four-year career ending in 1989. He was a two-time All-OVC selection, and the 1989 OVC Player of the Year. He held 13 MSU and 11 OVC records when he graduated. Proctor is the school’s all-time leader in career passing yards (8,632), attempts (1,148) and touchdowns (52), while ranking second in completions (578). 5


THE TRACK Roy Stewart Stadium, also known as The Track, has been the home of Racer football since 1973. Nearly 1.5 million fans have come through the gates, including a stadium record 16,600 for a game against Eastern Kentucky in 1981. The stadium has received several upgrades over the past few seasons, including new field turf prior to the 2007 season, and new chair back seats being installed for 2011.

STABLES

The Murray State locker room, which is known as the Stables, received a face lift during the offseason as the area was rearranged to optimize space. The lockers were reconfigured in rows to create room at the entrance, where two big screen TVs were installed. Lockers honoring the two retired jerseys at MSU, No. 10 Larry Tillmand and No. 11 Michael Proctor, were also installed at the end of the two center rows.

The Horseshoe Lounge gives the Murray State football team a chance to relax when they are not in class or in meetings or practice. The lounge, which is accessible from the locker room, features a pool table, three big screen TVs, comfortable leather seating, and three computers for research and school work. Each TV is equipped with an XBOX 360 Kinect and Playstation 3.

WEIGHT ROOM

The weight room went through a major overhaul during the Spring, 2012, as the coaching staff worked to build two new offices, along with a storage closet. The weight room also received a fresh coat of paint, along with a new floor. The facility will continue to change as murals and graphics will align the walls.


RACER I

16


A tradition that dates back to 1976, a thoroughbred horse runs a lap around the Stewart Stadium track following every Racer touchdown. The original horse, Violet Cactus, is buried inside the stadium where the horse begins its run. Since 1985, each horse has carried the name Racer I.

HOMECOMING 2010 Murray State broke 23 school, Ohio Valley Conference or NCAA records in their 72-59 victory over Missouri State. Individually, Casey Brockman, Kienan Cullen and Marcus all set school records.

18


500-200-200 Murray State made history against Missouri State as the Racers became the first FCS program to have a 500-yard passer, 200-yard receiver and a 200-yard rusher in the same game. The Racers accomplished the feat in front of a rowdy Homecoming crowd as Casey Brockman threw for a school-record 570 yards, Marcus Harris had 213 yards receiving and Mike Harris rushed for 212 yards. Their performances were all part of a record day that saw the Racers set a new modern-day record for points (72) and yards (816).

Casey Brockman 32-for-41 570 yards 7 TD

Marcus Harris 9 Catches 213 yards 5 TD

Season Outlook Quarterbacks

yards for a touchdown, it was the first kickoff return TD since the 2009 season opener.

The high-powered Murray State offense will be in familiar hands as Walter Payton Award candidate Casey Brockman returns for his senior season.

There will be plenty of depth behind Brady, but that depth will be untested after the Racers signed a pair of freshman.

The former walk-on became the first signal caller to earn All-America honors when he went 316-for-477 for 3,276 yards and 25 touchdowns in 2011.

Pokey Harris led Kentucky Class 6A in rushing as a senior after running for 1,943 yards and 18 touchdowns for George Rogers Clark. He was selected as the District 8-6A Player of the Year by the Football Coaches Association, as well as a third-team all-state selection by the Courier Journal.

Brockman enters his final season on a pace to become the school’s all-time leader in attempts, completions, yards, touchdowns and total offense.

Marcus Holliday earned District 16-AAA Offensive Player of the Year honors after rushing for 1,350 yards and 19 touchdowns for Fairley High School. The three-star recruit by Rivals.com put up those numbers despite missing three games.

Setting records has been the norm with Brockman as he has already set numerous FCS, OVC and MSU single-game records in his career. In the 2011 home opener against Tennessee State, Brockman set an FCS record by throwing for 422 yards in the first half. He went on to throw for 600 yards in the game, becoming just the fifth player in FCS history to reach 600 yards in a game. His 45 completions established a new school and conference record, while his seven touchdown passes ties his own school record that he set in 2010 against Missouri State.

Wide Receivers The Racers will once again have one of the top and deepest receiving corps in the FCS this season. MSU returns five of its top eight receivers from a season ago, with all five players caching at least 23 passes. The group also combined to catch 22 of the 28 touchdowns from a season ago.

Brockman closed out the 2011 campaign with another first as he threw for a pair of touchdowns, rushed for one and caught a touchdown in the victory over Southeast Missouri. In the 2010 finale, Brockman became just the second quarterback to throw for 300-yards and rush for 100-yards when he threw for 300 yards and rushed for 112 in the victory over TSU.

Senior Ja-Vonta Trotter returns after leading the team with 48 receptions last season. He also ranked second with 523 receiving yards and four touchdowns. After missing the 2010 season, Trotter picked up where he left off two season ago. He began the season with six catches against Louisville, before coming back with his first touchdown against Mississippi Valley State. His biggest game of his career came against Eastern Kentucky as he caught six passes for 99 yards and a pair of fourth-quarter touchdowns.

Spring practice brought out plenty of competition for the backup spot to Brockman Redshirt junior Spencer Phillips and sophomore Parks Frazier battled it out for the No. 2 spot on the depth chart. Phillips used his experience he gained throughout the 2011 season to earn the backup spot heading into the season.

Junior Walter Powell may have a new number this season, but the speedster hopes to improve on his numbers from a season ago that saw him lead the team with 584 receiving yards and five touchdowns.

Phillips has been at MSU for three semesters after transferring from West Los Angeles Community College. As a sophomore, he went 244for-370 for 2,466 yards and 18 touchdowns.

Powell had his breakout game against Tennessee State as he hauled in nine passes for a career-best 147 yards and a touchdown. He also caught a career-best two touchdown passes in the victory over Georgia State.

Frazier enrolled in January after earning honorable mention all-state honors at Northeast Mississippi Community College. He spent one season with the Tigers after redshirting his first year at Ole Miss. The Racers added depth with the signing of KD Humphries. Rated as a two-star prospect by Scout.com, Humphries threw for over 3,500 yards and 27 touchdowns in leading Jefferson Davis to the playoffs for the first time since 2004.

Senior HB Beauford returns for his third season, and is coming off his best season as a Racer. He finished the season with 42 catches for 493 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Beauford had four games last season with at least 60 receiving yards, including a career-best 111-yard effort against MVSU. He caught his first career TD against GSU, and then followed it up by catching the game-winning touchdown in the final minutes against Eastern Illinois.

Running Backs The Racer backfield will have a new look this season with the graduation of two-time first-team all-OVC running back Mike Harris. In his two season, Harris rushed for nearly 2,000 yards and 24 touchdowns in his two seasons.

Sophomore Nevar Griffin was a big presence as an inside receiver in his first season. The former walk-on went on to catch 28 passes for 256 yards and three touchdowns.

Junior Duane Brady served as a backup the previous two seasons, and is poised to take over the reigns in the backfield.

Griffin caught his first collegiate touchdown in his home debut against TSU, and then caught touchdown’s in back-to-back games against EKU and Tennessee Tech. His biggest game came against Austin Peay as he had six catches for 81 yards.

In his two seasons as a Racer, Brady has rushed for 571 yards and eight touchdowns. He earned the start against Georgia State and responded in a major way by rushing for 65 yards and a touchdown, while also catching seven passes for 91 yards and a touchdown.

Senior Patrick Robertson missed time due to an injury, but still managed to catch 23 passes for 230 yards and five scores.

Brady also led the team a season ago by returning 20 kickoffs for 373 yards and a touchdown. Against UT Martin, Brady took a kick back 98 29


Season Outlook Redshirt freshman Robert Olive has worked hard in the offseason and will push for playing time at the guard position.

Robertson had a breakout game against TSU as he caught seven passes for 115 yards and three scores, but an injury early in the next game forced him to miss the next four games. He returned with a diving catch to set up a touchdown against TTU, and ended the season with a 23-yard touchdown against SEMO.

Junior Hunter Hogan joined the Racers at semester and will push for the starting nod at left guard. Hogan came from Tyler Junior College where he was a second-team all-SWJCFC selection a season ago.

The biggest addition to the group will be Utah State transfer Dontel Watkins. Watkins redshirted in 2011, but led the Aggies in 2010 with 42 catches for 492 yards and four touchdowns.

Freshman center Corey Gammon joins the Racers after earning allstate honors at East High School.

Junior Anthony Hayes joins the Racers this season after spending the previous two seasons at Memphis. Hayes played mainly on special teams with the Tigers, but was a standout quarterback at White Station High School.

Defensive Line One of the keys to the Racers success this season will be the improved play of the defensive line. The Racers added some key components to fill in with the strong unit they have returning.

The Racers continued to add depth during the signing period with the addition of five wide receivers.

Senior Kevin Robinson anchors the offensive line from his defensive end position. Robinson emerged late last season and led the OVC with seven sacks.

Junior college transfer Jordan Morrow uses his diminutive size to his advantage. Morrow caught 48 passes in his two seasons at Contra Costa College, while also returning a pair of kickoffs for scores.

Robinson had at least one sack in four of the final games of the season, including a sack, forced fumble and recovery late in the fourth quarter to seal the victory against Eastern Illinois. He closed out the season with three tackles-for-loss and a pair of sacks against SEMO.

Freshman Janawski Davis joins the Racers after catching 57 passes for 957 yards and 12 touchdowns at Blount High School last season.

Junior Ayo Ojolola has worked hard in the offseason and is coming off a season in which he tripled his tackles from his first season. He earned his first start against MVSU and responded with a seasonbest four tackles. He later equalled that mark with four stops against Jacksonville State.

Freshman Jeremy Harness will make the move to receiver after playing running back at John Hardin High School. He finished his senior year with 1,562 rushing yards and 22 touchdowns, while adding 29 catches for 447 yards and seven scores. Freshman Paul Rice comes to MSU after being named the Public High League Large School Player of the year at Gateway Tech. He threw for 2,037 yards and 26 touchdowns, while rushing for 1,678 yards and 16 touchdowns.

Junior Adrian Dinkins transferred at semester and looks to play a major role as a pass rusher this season. Dinkins came from Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College where he earned honorable mention all-state honors in helping the Bulldogs to a 10-2 record.

Freshman Jalen Sublett will also make the switch from running back after helping Glasgow High School to a state runner-up finish as a senior after rushing for 2,51 yards and 28 touchdowns.

Freshman Zach Dean joins the team after recording 93 tackles, 22 tackles-for-loss and 10 sacks at Central High School. The honorable mention all-state selection also added six forced fumbles.

Offensive Line

Senior Tevin Wells started five of the final seven games at defensive tackles last season. He finished the season with 18 tackles, including posting three stops against EIU and APSU.

The offensive line returns three starters from a unit that helped lead the way for the one of the top offenses in the FCS a season ago. The unit is led by senior right tackle Roderick Tomlin. He has started 26-straight games, with the previous 22 starts coming at right tackle.

Tyler Evans returns for his final season with the Racers. Evans started four games last season and recorded 13 tackles. He had 4.5 tacklesfor-loss and added a sack against TTU.

The right side of the offensive line also features two-year starter Andy Mahoney. Like Tomlin, Mahoney has started at right guard in all 22 games the previous season.

Junior Jeremy Brackett moves back inside this season after splitting time at end and tackle a season ago. He earned the spot at defensive end against UT Martin.

Junior Harris Bivin returns as the starting center after starting the final five games a season ago. Bivin and senior Brock Rydecki have split time at center each of the last two seasons.

Junior Kamalie Matthews joined the Racers at semester and will add much needed size on the interior. Sophomore Jerome Davis spent last season at Garden City Community College after redshirting the 2010 season at Kent State. Davis was a three-star recruit by Rivals.com coming out of Buford High School. He posted 90 tackles his senior season in earning all-region honors.

The left side of the offensive line will be new this season as sophomore Drew Kelley takes over at left tackle. Kelly gained valuable experience as a true freshman at right tackle, as well as serving as a blocking tight end. Senior Trevor Wallace will battle for time at both positions on the left side of the line. Wallace appeared in five games in his first season as a Racer.

Linebackers The linebackers at Murray State have a chance to be one of the best groups in the OVC this season. A few months ago, some may have said one of the best in the FCS, but a key injury may have changed the mind of several people.

Sophomore Zach Littlefield returns after appearing in six games as a true freshman. He saw his first collegiate action against MVSU, before earning the start at left guard against Jacksonville State. 30


Season Outlook The injury occurred to all-conference middle linebacker Sam Small at the end of spring practice. His status for the 2012 season is yet to be determined.

Senior Darius Buck started the final five games at safety last season, but made the switch to corner in the spring. Buck finished last season with 40 tackles, while tieing for the team lead with two interceptions.

In 2011, Small ranked second in the OVC with 115 tackles, and reached double digits in tackles in eight of the 11 games. He posted a seasonhigh 16 tackles against JSU, and ended the season with 13 tackles in each of the last two games.

Junior college transfer Josh Manning will battle for a starting spot on the outside. Manning posted 37 tackles and three pass break-ups at Southwest Mississippi Community College a season ago.

Junior Blake Salter will take over for Small at middle linebacker. Salter appeared in all 11 games last season, earning the start in the middle against Louisville.

Safeties A familiar face will patrol the back end of the Racer secondary as junior Brandon Wicks returns. Wicks has started 20 games in his first two seasons.

Salter had his most productive season in 2011 as he recorded 33 tackles. He posted a season-high seven stops against EKU.

Last season, Wicks ranked second on the team with 89 tackles and seven pass break-ups. He also blocked a pair of kicks, including a punt against MVSU that was recovered for a touchdown.

Junior Qua Huzzie burst onto the scene in a major way in 2011 in earning second-team all-OVC honors. Huzzie will be the leader of the group this season from his outside linebacker spot.

Senior Jarius Williams returns for his second season as a Racer. Williams became stronger as the season went on and ended the year with 26 tackles, one sack and an interception.

Huzzie finished the season with 80 tackles, while leading the OVC with 14 tackles-for-loss. After missing a game with an injury, he returned against EKU with 13 tackles, four tackles-for-loss, two sacks and a pair of forced fumbles, the second of which was recovered in the endzone for a touchdown. He later found the endzone himself as he returned a fumble 24 yards for a touchdown against Austin Peay.

Junior college transfer Darian Yahyavi joins the Racers after registering 58 tackles, three interceptions and 10 pass break-ups at Saddleback Community College last season.

Mid-year transfer Corey Addison will fill the spot opposite Huzzie. Addison joins the Racers after spending two seasons at South Carolina.

Freshman Brandon Hathaway will add depth to the defensive backfield in 2012. Hathaway comes from Smyrna High School where he was a two-time all-state selection. He finished his senior season with 98 tackles, four forced fumbles and an interception.

Rated as a three-star recruit by Rivals.com and Scout.com, Addison appeared in 13 games over the previous two seasons, marking 10 tackles.

Special Teams

Sophomore middle linebacker Fred Harvey joins the Racers after spending two years at Memphis. He was rated as a three-star recruit coming out of high school and was named the scout team player of the year as a redshirt in 2010.

The Racers will have a new look on special teams this season as they are replacing four-time all-conference kicker and punter Kienan Cullen. Cullen handled all the kicking duties each of the last four years and ended his career as the all-time leader in field goals made and scoring.

Freshman T-Ray Malone comes to MSU after earning all-region honors at Smyrna High School. He posted 69 tackles, two sacks and four interceptions as a senior.

Sophomore Jordan Benton will take over as the place kicker this season. The former Murray High product redshirted with the Racers last season after spending his freshman year at Campbellsville.

Corners

Redshirt freshman Marc Wynstra and true freshman Carson Greifenkamp will also battle for the placekicking duties.

The Racers will have to replace two-time all-conference corner Dontrell Johnson, but enter the season with some experience.

Fourth-year Racer Steven Mix is the frontrunner to handle the punting duties in 2012. Mix joined the Racers after a standout career at Ballard Memorial High School.

Junior Darrian Skinner hopes to rebound this season, after an injury slowed him much of last year. He has shown the ability to be one of the top cover corners in the OVC.

Mid-year transfer Ron Pavlik battled with Mix in spring practice and will continue to push for the starting job in preseason camp.

Skinner missed three games in the middle of the season and finished with 34 tackles, two forced fumbles and four pass break-ups. Against TSU, Skinner recorded a season-high eight tackles, had three pass break-ups and a sack. He returned after a month layoff to post seven tackles against EKU.

Sophomore Carson Beyer took over as the holder late in the season in 2011, and is the only returning specialist from last season.

Senior Julian Whitehead moved to corner at the middle of last season. He had started the first six games at safety, before injuries forced a switch. Whitehead tied for the team lead with two interceptions last season, including returning one 42 yards for a touchdown against APSU. He added 54 tackles and a pair of fumble recoveries.

Head Coach

CHRIS HATCHER HEAD COACH | THIRD SEASON | 107-36 (.748) OVERALL RECORD

Very few schools in the country can boast the kind of coaching tradition that has taken up residence at Murray State University, especially in the last 25 years. Consider the men who in recent history have guided the Racers on the football field: • Mike Gottfried left Murray State to coach at Kansas and Pittsburgh before becoming one of the top college football television analysts in the country while working for ESPN. • Frank Beamer left Murray State for his alma mater, Virginia Tech, where he guided the Hokies to a spot in the national championship game against Florida State in 2000, earning several national coach of the year awards. • Houston Nutt took the Racers to unprecedented heights before leaving to restore the winning tradition at Arkansas, and Ole Miss. Now the torch is carried by a coach who has proven to be a winner and has all the makings of becoming the next Murray State football head coaching legend....Chris Hatcher. The Chris Hatcher era officially began at Murray State, Dec. 21, 2009, when Director of Athletics Allen Ward introduced Hatcher as the 17th head coach in front of a standing-room only crowd inside the Murray Room. Since arriving on campus, Hatcher has returned the Racer program back to its winning tradition, while also transforming Stewart Stadium into one of the premiere facilities in the country. Hatcher and his coaching staff have been busy renovating the locker room, film room and weight room, while also building a new players lounge, equipped with all the top gaming devices, pool table and computers for school work and watching film. Success has followed Hatcher throughout his career, as the former Division II National Player of the Year has garnered an overall record of 107-36 in his 12 years as a head coach. Included in those 12 seasons are six trips to the postseason, two appearances in the National Championship game and the 2004 Division II National Championship. Hatcher’s wide-open style of offense, known as the ‘Hatch Attack,’ quickly won the hearts of the Murray community, while giving opposing defensive coordinators nightmares. In his first two years at MSU, the Racer offense has rewritten the record books. Powered by the first All-American quarterback in school history, Casey Brockman, the Racers have set 18 single-game records and have bolstered two of the top four passing offenses in school history. The 2011 season saw the Racers go 7-4 and post back-to-back winning seasons for the first time since the 1999-2000 seasons. MSU closed the

season winning five of their final six games, including going on the road and knocking off nationally-ranked Tennessee Tech. The Racer offense was among the most prolific in the nation as MSU ranked third in scoring offense, fourth in total offense and seventh in passing offense. The 5,070 yards of total offense marked the fifth time in school history the Racers amassed over 5,000 yards, while the 460.9 yards per game were the third-most all time. The Racers also rushed for 152.27 yards per game, with Mike Harris accumulating seven 100-yard rushing performances on his way to becoming the 10th 1,000-yard rusher in school history. The defense was not to be outdone as the Racers recorded their first shutout in seven years with a 39-0 victory over Mississippi Valley State. It also marked the first shutout on the road since 1986, and the first non-conference road shutout since the 1979 season. In 2010, the Racer offense led the OVC in passing offense, total offense and scoring offense, while ranking fourth nationally in passing offense, fifth in total offense and fifth in scoring offense. Hatcher is also one that is not scared to roll the dice as the Racers attempted and converted more fourth-down conversions than any other team in the FCS. After getting off to a slow start, Hatcher led the Racers to a 52-16 victory over UT Martin that paved the way for a season-ending stretch that saw MSU win six of its final eight games. The ‘Hatch Attack’ was on fully display on Homecoming as the Racers set a modern-day scoring record, while racking up 816 yards in a thrilling come-from-behind, 72-59, victory over Missouri State. The offensive explosion helped the Racers set 25 school, conference or NCAA records, including becoming the first school in FCS history to have a 500-yard passer, 200-yard receiver and a 200-yard rusher in the same game. Quarterback Casey Brockman, making his first start of the season, threw for a school-record 570 yards and seven touchdowns. Wide receiver Marcus Harris hauled in nine passes for 213 yards and a school-record five touchdowns, while running back Mike Harris had 30 carries for 212 yards and two touchdowns. The Racers went on to win the final three games of the season, outscoring their opponents, 133-71. MSU finished the season with a 6-5 record, 5-3 in the OVC, to secure the first winning season since 2004. The victory over Tennessee State in the season finale was the 100th in the career for Hatcher. The victory made Hatcher the fifth youngest coach, youngest in the 21st century, to record 100 coaching victories. At 37 years and 274 days at the time of the victory, Hatcher ranks just behind Pop Warner and ahead of Amos Alonso Stagg.

Head Coach and special teams. He also coached five All-America players, including quarterback Jayson Foster, the second Walter Payton award winner at GSU. The Eagles returned to the national rankings after a 14-week hiatus as the Hatcher era got off to a 4-1 start. GSU climbed as high as No. 11, after the Eagles recorded threestraight victories at No. 5 Appalachian State, ending the Mountaineers 30-game home winning streak, at home against No. 25 The Citadel and at No. 10 Wofford. The prolific offense ranked first in rushing, eighth in total offense, eighth in scoring offense and 23rd in sacks allowed. The defense was 14th in turnover margin and 17th in fumbles recovered, while the special teams ranked 25th in net punting. The 2008 season saw Hatcher guide the Eagles to the program’s 25th winning season in 27 years. In late October, the Eagles set an NCAA record for the largest fourth-quarter comeback as GSU erased a 31-3 deficit for a thrilling 38-31 overtime victory at Western Carolina. The OT contest was just the first of an NCAA record four overtime games played by the Eagles in 2008. The ‘Hatch Attack’ provided impressive numbers in all three phases. The offense ranked 20th nationally in passing and scoring, while the defense ranked 26th in sacks and 22nd in tackles-for-loss. The special teams units finished 14th in punt returns and 36th in kickoff returns. All of this was done as Hatcher and his staff were forced to play in upwards of 30 freshman on a consistent basis throughout the season. In all, five Eagles received all-league honors and seven freshman representing offense, defense and special teams were named to the inaugural SoCon All-Freshman Team. Prior to his time at GSU, Hatcher molded Valdosta State into one of the most dominant teams in Division II. The winningest coach in Blazers’ history, Hatcher was 76-12 at his alma mater. When

Hatcher took over as head coach in 2000, he wasted no time molding the Valdosta State program into the ‘Hatch Attack’. In his first year back at VSU, Hatcher took a 4-7 squad the previous year and turned it around to a 10-2 record (8-1 in GSC action) and a berth in the Division II playoffs. He coached quarterback Dusty Bonner, who was a twotime winner of the Harlon Hill Trophy as the NCAA Division II Player of the Year, an award Hatcher won himself in 1994. His 2001 and 2002 teams posted back-toback undefeated records during the regular season, part of a Gulf South Conference record 35 straight victories during the regular season. During the 2004 championship season, the Blazers lost their season-opener before rattling off 13 consecutive victories, capped by a 36-31 victory over Pittsburg State in the title game. Hatcher was named ‘National Coach of the Year’ by the American Football Coaches Association and was the offensive coordinator for the East squad at the Hula Bowl. In 2005, Valdosta opened the season ranked No. 1 for four-straight weeks and saw the season culminate with a sixth-straight NCAA postseason appearance. Despite an 8-2 record in 2006, the 10th-ranked Blazers did not receive an invitation to the playoffs, marking the first time that occurred in the Hatcher era. The 2006 team finished sixth nationally in passing offense (283 yards per game), 12th in scoring offense (34.9 ppg) and 19th in total offense (389.9 yards). However, Hatcher’s teams have been successful in all three facets. The 2006 defense ranked 27th nationally in scoring defense (15.7 points allowed) while the special teams ranked third in punt returns (17.3 yards) and blocked seven kicks. The Macon (Ga.) native spent one year as quarterbacks/tight ends coach at the University of Central Florida where he worked with Miami Dolphins quarterback Daunte Culpepper. He then spent three years working with the quarterbacks at the

University of Kentucky where he worked under former VSU head coach Hal Mumme. During his time with the Wildcats, he coached the No. 1 NFL draft pick, All-America quarterback Tim Couch. While at UK, Hatcher and the Wildcats played in the 1999 Outback Bowl, the program’s first New Year’s Day Bowl in 47 years, then followed that the following year with a berth in the ’99 Music City Bowl. It marked the first time the Wildcats had consecutive bowl appearances in 15 years. Hatcher carried his success on the playing field to help him develop into one of the nation’s winningest coaches. A two-time All-American quarterback at VSU (1993 and 1994), Hatcher threw for 11,363 yards and 121 touchdowns during his stellar career. During his senior year in 1994, he led the Blazers to their first postseason berth, advancing to the quarterfinals, and when it was all said and done set 29 VSU passing and total offense records. Among the national records he once set were a 68.5 career completion percentage and streak of 20-straight completions in a game against New Haven. Hatcher held 14 Valdosta State, 13 Gulf South Conference and 17 Division II national records. He also started 41 consecutive games, posting a 29-10-2 record. Not only did Hatcher excel on the field, he was just as successful in the classroom. Twice he received the Gulf South Conference’s Commissioner’s Trophy which is awarded to the league’s Most Outstanding StudentAthlete. He finished his senior year by winning several national honors including: the NCAA Top Eight Award, the CoSIDA Academic All-America National Player of the Year and a postgraduate scholarship from the National Football Foundation and College Football Hall of Fame. At the time when Hatcher won the Harlon Hill Trophy, he won by the second-largest voting margin in the then-19-year history of the award. Hatcher was also voted the GSC Football team of the 1990s. The honors continued to add up even after his playing days. Hatcher was named to the Valdosta State University Athletic Hall of Fame in 2001, in his first year of eligibility. The personable head coach was also elected into the Macon Sports Hall of Fame the same year. In 2005, Hatcher was inducted into the Division II Hall of Fame. Hatcher graduated from Valdosta State in 1995 with a bachelor’s degree in health and physical education. He and his wife, Lori, also a graduate of VSU, are the parents of a son, Ty, and daughter, Talley.

Starting center at Valdosta State in 1993 that allowed only 10 sacks of Chris Hatcher. Coached three All-Americans at Valdosta State and two at Georgia Southern. Coached former Jacksonville Jaguar offensive lineman Richard Collier. Spent 18 years at Valdosta State as a player or assistant coach.

Shawn Bostick enters his third season as the assistant head coach and offensive line coach at Murray State. Bostick has been alongside Chris Hatcher since their playing days at Valdosta State. The 2011 offensive line continued to improve as three players started all 11 games, while one other started 10 games, and Brock Rydecki and Harris Bivin split time at center. As a unit, the offensive line helped the Racer offense amass 5,070 yards of total offense, marking just the fourth time it has happened in school history. On the ground, the offensive line paved the way for the first 1,000-yard rusher since 2002. The offense averaged 152.3 yards a game on the ground, and had eight 100-yard rushing performances. Senior left tackle Raymond Hopson became the first Racer offensive lineman to earn All-Ohio Valley Conference honors when he was selected to the second team. In his first season with the Racers, Bostick took an offensive line that was considered a work in progress, and turned them into one of the top offensive lines in the OVC. In fact, one national FCS blog tabbed the Racer offensive line as the best in the OVC, and one of the top five offensive fronts in all of the FCS. The right side of the line, guard Andy Mahoney and tackle Roderick Tomlin, started all 11 games in 2010, while center Rydecki started the final 10 games of the season. On the left side, tackle Raymond Hopson made 10 starts, while Elbert Ojendis took over at guard the final three games of the season. The Racer offensive line, which did not feature a senior, allowed just 16 sacks in 515 pass attempts. The unit helped the Racers to rank in the top five nationally in passing offense, total offense and scoring offense. Bostick came to MSU after serving as the offensive line coach at Georgia Southern the previous three seasons. The 2009 offensive line featured three underclassmen on a unit that gained 279.4 yards a game of total offense, including 96.5 yards a game on the ground. In 2008, the GSU offensive line had the formidable task of replacing all five starters, including two AllAmericans. Despite not having a single lineman receive All-Southern Conference honors, the offense still ranked 20th nationally in passing offense, 20th in scoring offense and 37th in total offense. During his first year on staff, Bostick inherited a talented and experienced offensive line, and built on that. Two linemen earned First-Team All-America honors, guard Marcelo Estrada and tackle Russell Orr. Both were named All-Southern Conference, along with tackle Brad Williams. They paved the way

69

for the backs as once again Georgia Southern led the nation in rushing offense. In fact, the Eagles ranked eighth nationally in total offense and scoring offense. When the offense needed a clutch play, the linemen helped pave the way as GSU finished first nationally in fourth down conversions. The linemen played a big role in fewest sacks allowed, finishing 23rd nationally. His arrival in Statesboro, Ga. ended an 18-year affiliation with Valdosta State, from his playing days to then assistant coach. Bostick served as assistant head coach in charge of the offensive line for eight years at VSU. His O-Line was part of one of the most productive offensive units in Division II. In 2006, the Blazers ranked 20th nationally in total offense (390 yards/game), sixth in passing offense (283 yards), ninth in scoring offense (35 points) and 21st in team passing efficiency (145.38). Bostick was part of the 2004 National Championship team and the national runner-up in 2002. During his tenure, Bostick coached three All-America selections (Jason King, Tully Payne and Torrey Howard) and eight who were named All-Gulf South Conference. Over the previous seven years, the offense scored 50 or more points 17 times. The offensive line played a vital role in the success at Valdosta State. During Coach Hatcher’s seven year stint in charge, the offense averaged more than 32 points per game in six seasons. Every year the offense totaled at least 380 yards per game. As a former walk-on who eventually earned a scholarship, Bostick was a three-year letterwinner from 1991-93. During the 1993 campaign in which the Blazers finished 8-3, Bostick was the starting center on an offensive line that allowed only 10 sacks of Chris Hatcher. From 1994-95 he worked as a student assistant coach under Hal Mumme. Bostick was part of the 1994 coaching staff, leading Valdosta State to its first-ever playoff appearance. In 1996 he worked with the running backs, as the Blazers won their first conference championship. During the 1997 campaign, he served as a graduate assistant coach under Mike Kelley, returning to the offensive line. The next season, he moved into his first full-time coaching position and worked with the offensive line every year since. One of Bostick’s players, two-year starter Richard Collier, went to the NFL and was with the Jacksonville Jaguars until he was tragically injured. A 1997 graduate of Valdosta State, Bostick received his bachelor’s degree in Education. He and his wife, Sheila, have a daughter, Emma, and a son, Walker.

Coached Chris Covington and Dakota Walker to All-America honors following the 2008 season.

Ashley Anders enters his third season as the defensive coordinator and linebackers coach for the Racers. The 2011 Racer defense recorded their first road shutout in 15 seasons when they blanked Mississippi Valley State, 39-0. The shutout was part of a streak that saw the defense not allow a point for over seven quarters, covering a span of 121:34. The defense made a habit of playing in the opponents backfield as linebacker Qua Huzzie led the OVC with 14 tackles-for-loss, while defensive end Kevin Robinson led the league with seven sacks. Linebacker Sam Small ranked among the league leaders with 115 tackles, while both Huzzie and Small were named to the All-OVC Second Team. In his first season with the Racers, Anders led a defense that ranked third nationally in tackles-forloss (8.45). The 93 TFL ranked as the third highest total over the past two decades. The defense also set a school record with 24 quarterback hurries. The linebacking corps combined for 28 tacklesfor-loss, with middle linebacker Zach Kutch leading the way with nine. Harry McCall added seven stops behind the line, while Andre Clarke chipped in 6.5. Anders came to Murray after spending the previous three seasons as the defensive coordinator at Georgia Southern. In 2009, Anders’ defensive unit led the Southern Conference with 14 forced fumbles and tied for third in the league with 11 interceptions. Defensive lineman Brent Russell and Markeith Wylie combined for 22 tackles-for-loss and nine sacks in earning second-team all-SoCon honors. During the 2008 season, Anders coached two All-Americans in Chris Covington (linebacker) and Dakota Walker (defensive end). Covington, who began the season in the secondary, moved to Anders’ linebacker unit in week five and would go on and rank among the Southern Conference leaders in tackles for loss (second SoCon, tied 40th nationally) and sacks (third SoCon, tied 39th nationally). Walker not only led the SoCon in sacks but finished tied for 12th nationally. When Covington was named SoCon ‘Defensive Player of the Year’ by the Sports Media Association, he became the third player in Eagle history to accomplish the feat, and first since 2001. Both he and Walker earned First Team All-SoCon honors. The Eagle defense, playing as many as nine truefreshmen on a consistent basis, saved their best performance for last in a 17-10 win at 14th-ranked Furman to close out the season with a winning record. The 10 points allowed were the fewest by an opponent since October 2005. The defense saw a league-best four rookies named to the inaugural SoCon All-Freshman Team. As a defensive unit, the Eagles ranked 22nd nationally averaging 7.0 tackles for a loss and 26th recording 2.4 sacks per game. Not only did Anders’ defensive unit rank among the SoCon leaders, the kickoff coverage team set the standard. Led by Patrick Bolen, the Eagles led the SoCon in net kickoff yards forcing opponents to start on their own 25 yard line. During the 2007 season the Eagles’ defense ranked 14th nationally in turnover margin (+1.09). That impressive average was tied into the team’s 56th ranking in interceptions, 17th in fumble recoveries and 37th in turnovers gained. Overall, the defensive unit recorded 65 tackles-for-loss, 19 sacks, 11 interceptions and 56 pass break-ups. 70

Prior to Georgia Southern, Anders spent five years working on Chris Hatcher’s staff at Valdosta State. During his final four years, he served as the defensive coordinator and was in charge of the kickoff teams. During his tenure as defensive coordinator, the Blazers qualified for the NCAA playoffs three times and posted a 40-8 record. They finished no worse than third place in the always tough Gulf South Conference, including titles in 2002 and 2004, and a pair of runner-up finishes. At a place known for its offensive production, Anders’ defensive unit was equally impressive. In 2006, the Blazers defense allowed just 15.7 points a game, 25th best in Division II. VSU ranked 35th nationally in total defense (270 yards/game), while totaling 24 takeaways in 10 games. The unit recorded 69 tackles-for-loss, 22 sacks, 13 interceptions and 38 pass break-ups. When VSU played for the 2004 National Championship, Anders and defensive staff went up against one of the most explosive offenses in NCAA history. Pittsburg State had set NCAA records, for all divisions, in scoring offense (57.6 ppg) and total offense (616 yards/game). Anders’ defensive scheme held the Gorilla offense to just 31 points en route to the title. The 2004 defense led the nation in turnover margin, registering 34 takeaways and a plus-20 margin. While at VSU, Anders’ linebackers earned six AllGulf South Conference honors, including all three during the 2002 campaign. Three of his defensive players (Spencer Fortson, Tim Thompson and Sherard Reynolds) earned All-America status and Thompson eventually signed with the Tennessee Titans. Linebacker Maurice Leggett (2002-03) is currently playing defensive back for the Kansas City Chiefs. Anders spent two years at Holmes Community College prior to arriving at Valdosta, coaching the linebackers, secondary and special teams. While at HCC, he coached All-America Deral Slay, who went on to play at South Carolina. He spent a year and a half at Auburn as a graduate assistant coach (1999-2000), coaching the defensive backs and special teams during the 1999 season. In 1996, he started his coaching career at Star City (Arkansas) High School. During his time, he served three years as head basketball coach and assistant football; and one year as assistant baseball, assistant strength and conditioning, as well as one year as head strength coach. During his last season at Star City, he served as the football program’s defensive coordinator. In his year as the assistant strength coach, his weightlifting team won a state title. A native of Hampton, Arkansas, he was a threesport athlete (football, basketball and baseball) earning all-district and all-conference honors as a defensive back in football and a pitcher in baseball. He played baseball at Arkansas-Monticello, where he helped the team capture the AIC conference title and qualify for the NAIA regionals. He received his bachelor’s degree in health and physical education from Arkansas-Monticello in 1996, and his master’s in sports administration from Auburn in 2000.

Guided quarterback Casey Brockman to All-America honors in 2011, making him the first Racer signal caller to earn that distinction.

Mitch Stewart enters his third season at Murray State, and the second as the team’s offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. Despite being one of the youngest coordinators in the FCS, Stewart was being groomed for this role since his playing days at Valdosta State. In his first season calling plays at the collegiate level, Stewart guided an offense that was among the FCS leaders in passing offense, total offense and scoring offense. The Racer offense accumulate 5,070 yards of offense, marking just the fourth time in school history the team surpassed the 5,000-yard mark in a season. The 460.9 yards per game also ranked third all-time. The offense put up over 450 yards in six of the 11 contests, including a 707-yard effort against Tennessee State. In fact, the Racers put up at least 400 yards of offense in all but one conference game. The offense was led by Casey Brockman who set school records for attempts and completions, while throwing for the second-most yards and touchdowns in a season. For his efforts, Brockman became the first MSU signal caller to earn All-America honors. Brockman made history in the final game of the 2011 season a he threw for a pair of touchdowns, rushed for one and caught another in the victory over Southeast Missouri. Known as a pass-happy offense, Stewart implemented a balanced attack that saw Mike Harris become just the 10th 1,000-yard rusher in school history. The numbers show the Racers threw the ball 493 times, while attempting 391 rushing attempts. Stewart spent the 2010 season as the wide receivers coach for the Racers. Under his guidance, two Racer receivers re-wrote the single-season record books. Senior Marcus Harris missed two games with injury, but still manage to catch 84 passes for 1,057 yards and seven touchdowns. He ranked second on the single-season list for receptions, tied for second in yards and tied for eighth in touchdowns. Harris also left MSU as the all-time leader in receptions (216) and yards (2,471), while tieing fourth in touchdowns (19). Harris ended his career with four-straight 100yard performances on his way to earning SecondTeam All-America honors from the Associated Press and The Sports Network. Freshman Arthur Brackett was the compliment to Harris, as he established a new freshman record with 62 catches for 617 yards and three touchdowns. He caught a touchdown pass in each of his first two games, and later added 13 catches against Jacksonville State. The 13 receptions falls just two shy of the FCS freshman record.

71

Stewart came to Murray after spending the previous three seasons as a member of the Georgia Southern coaching staff. While at GSU, Stewart worked with the wide receivers and handled team travel. In 2009, a pair of true freshman made immediate impacts as Jamere Valentine caught 51 passes and Patrick Barker added 40, ranking second and third, respectively, on the school’s single-season receptions list. In his second season, the Eagles offense led the SoCon and ranked 20th nationally in passing offense. That also helped GSU finish 20th nationally in scoring offense and 37th in total offense. The speedy receiver corps accounted for the majority of the team’s 42 receptions of 30-plus yards. Wide receiver Raja Andrews shattered three season records, one single-game mark and the career receptions record. From 2001-05, Stewart played quarterback at Valdosta State. He was part of the 2002 national runner-up squad and 2004 National Championship team. Stewart earned the start in the first round playoff game his senior year. After his playing days (Spring 2006), Stewart served as a graduate assistant coach for the Blazers, working with the quarterbacks. In the summer of 2006, he took a job at Newnan High School, assisting the offensive coordinator in implementing the Blazers’ offense. That fall, Newnan won its first region title in 14 years and qualified for the state playoffs. A standout quarterback at Northgate High School in Newnan, Ga., Stewart helped instrument one of the biggest turnarounds in the state. Following a 1-9 sophomore year, Northgate went 7-3 his junior year, earning the title as most improved team in Georgia, and qualified for the playoffs. In his final year, Stewart led Northgate to an 11-2 record. Stewart received his bachelor’s degree in business education from Valdosta State in 2005 and began work on a master’s degree.

Coached Dontrell Johnson to AllAmerica honors as a punt returner and the 2010 College Football Performance Awards National Punt Returner of the Year award.

Keith Hatcher enters his third season on his cousin Chris’ staff at Murray State. He serves as the secondary coach and recruiting coordinator, while also handling the punt return team. The secondary in 2011 was filled with many new faces, and that list grew even longer as injuries hampered the unit from the opening game. Senior Dontrell Johnson led the OVC with 12 passes defended, despite missing time with injury. He managed just one interception, and even that came with a huge cast on his arm. Safety Brandon Wicks was the anchor as he ranked second on the team with 89 tackles. He also picked off a pass and had seven pass break-ups. Wicks showed his versatility on special teams as he blocked a pair of kicks, including one that was recovered in the endzone for a touchdown. Newcomers Darius Buck and Julian Whitehead led the team with two interceptions each as the secondary intercepted seven passes on the season. Under Hatcher’s tutelage, the 2010 Racers led the country with a 19.7 yard punt return average. The Racers also returned two punts for touchdowns. Johnson spearheaded the unit, as he led the country with a 22.8 yard return average. He became the first Racer to return two punts for a touchdown in a season, and also became the first punt returner to earn All-America accolades when he was honored by The Sports Network. Johnson was also honored by the College Football Performance Awards when he was named the 2010 FCS Elite Punt Returner. Johnson also intercepted a pair of passes, including returning one for a touchdown, in earning second-team all-OVC honors as a defensive back. True-freshman Brandon Wicks started 10 games in the secondary and ended the season with a team-best 73 tackles. Hatcher joins the Racer coaching staff after serving the previous three years as the secondary coach, recruiting coordinator and director of football operations at Georgia Southern. In 2009, the Eagle secondary held opponents to 214.6 yards a game and tied for third in the Southern Conference with 11 interceptions. Rover Darius Eubanks ranked second on the team in tackles and tied for the team lead with two forced fumbles. Corner Laron Scott was third on the team in tackles and ranked second in the SoCon with 11 pass break-ups. The 2008 defensive backs underwent a nearcomplete makeover from the beginning of the season as All-American Chris Covington moved to linebacker and true-freshmen emerged into the starting lineup. By the end of the season, the secondary was starting a pair of true-freshman and a sophomore. Two of the Eagles, Derek Heyden and K.R. Snipes, earned a spot on the SoCon All-Freshman Team. In fact, it was Snipes that came up with the gameclinching interception late in the Furman game to 72

secure the 17-10 win over the 14th-ranked Paladins and record the programs’ 25th winning season. The secondary accounted for all but one of the team’s interceptions and broke up 29 more passes. Hatcher also oversaw the punt return unit at GSU. In 2008, Raja Andrews ranked 12th nationally, averaging 14 yards per punt return. The return unit tied a program record with two returns for touchdown (at Chattanooga, vs. Appalachian State). Hatcher had to make unprecedented adjustments in the secondary throughout the 2007 season as half of the opening-day two-deep were out over the final month of the season. Two former offensive players started at the end of the year and two more saw significant playing time. Covington would not only earn all-SoCon honors, but Honorable Mention All-America accolades as well. The secondary accounted for 10 interceptions and recorded 56 pass break-ups. After spending three years in private business as an investment advisor specialist, Hatcher decided to join in the family footsteps and enter the coaching profession. He joined his cousin’s staff at Valdosta State as a graduate assistant in 2003, before moving on to serve two years on the staff at AlabamaBirmingham. He spent the 2004 season and the 2005 spring season working under former defensive coordinator Wayne Bolt. Hatcher returned to VSU in 2005, where he worked with the secondary and served as the director of football operations and summer camps for two seasons. In 2006, the Blazers defense ranked 25th in the nation, after allowing just 15.7 points per game. VSU ranked 35th nationally in total defense (270 yards/game), while totaling 24 takeaways in 10 games. The defense also recorded 69 tackles-forloss, 22 sacks, 13 interceptions and 38 pass breakups. The 2006 season was Hatcher’s first in charge of the punt rush. His special team squad blocked seven punts and returned three for a touchdown, leading the league in blocks and punt return yardage. During his tenure, Hatcher coached All-America free safety and all-GSC punt returner Sherard Reynolds. Hatcher was a two-sport athlete at Mars Hill, where he earned four letters in baseball and two in football. His success was not limited to the playing field as he was a four-time Academic All-Conference pick in baseball and twice earned the honor in football.

Sean Dawkins begins his third season as the running backs coach at Murray State. Dawkins also added the title of run-game coordinator prior to the 2011 season.

Junior Duane Brady takes over as the starter in the back field after serving in a backup role the previous two years. He has rushed for 571 yards and eight touchdowns in his career. The rest of the backfield will be unproven as the Racers signed a stable of running backs for the upcoming season. Brady takes over for Mike Harris who rushed for 1,922 yards and 23 touchdowns in his two years as a Racer. In 2011, Harris became just the 10th 1,000-yard rusher in school history when he rushed for 1,018 yards and 13 touchdowns. He recorded seven 100-yard rushing games, including a 206-yard performance against Eastern Kentucky. Harris ranks third all-time with 11 100-yard rushing games, and is tied with Derrick Cullors with three 200-yard rushing games. Harris was honored as a first-team all-OVC selection for the second-straight season.

Despite missing, or the majority, of four games, Harris rushed for 904 yards and 10 touchdowns. He was named to the all-OVC first team, and ranked 21st nationally at 100.44 yards per game. Harris went over the century mark four times, including collecting a pair of 200-yard games.

Harris was not the only back to shine for the Racers in 2010, as true-freshman, Brady, rushed for 288 yards and seven touchdowns. He had his best game when the team needed him most as he rushed for 114 yards and two touchdowns against Austin Peay. Dawkins came to MSU after spending the 2009 season as the running backs coach at West Texas A&M. He helped the Buffs to their fifth-straight winning season and guided running back Keithon Flemming to All-Lone Star Conference honors, despite missing the first six games of the season. Prior to his time at WTAMU, Dawkins spent one season at Huntingdon College. He tutored running back Jamal Gardner to a 1,000-yard rushing campaign. Dawkins spent five years as a member of the Troy football team and helped the Trojans capture a pair of Sun Belt Conference championships.

The Racer offense averaged 460.9 yards of offense and went over 5,000 yards of total offense for just the fourth time in school history. The offensive line also paved the way for the first 1,000-yard rusher in nearly a decade, and just the 10th in the history of the program. As a team, the Racers rushed for over 150 yards in five games, and closed out the season by eclipsing the 200-yard mark in each of the last two games. The kickoff return unit used five different returners during the season, with only two players reaching double figures in returns. Running back Duane Brady was the most active of the returners, averaging 18.6 yards on his 20 returns. His most impressive return came against UT Martin when he broke several tackles on his way to a 98-yard touchdown. Consistency was also the case with the tackles in 2010 as Hopson and Tomlin combined to start all but one game. The duo anchored the line that allowed just 16 sacks in 515 pass attempts. The Racers allowed one sack or fewer in eight games. The Racer offense was one of the best in the country as it ranked fourth in passing offense, fifth in total offense and fifth in scoring offense. The line also paved the way for one of the league’s best rushing attacks over the second half of the season. Polly came to MSU after spending three seasons as an offensive graduate assistant on Rick Stockstill’s staff at Middle Tennessee. In 2009, Polly helped guide an offensive line that helped paved the way for an offense that accumulated 421.7 yards a game, and allowed just 19 sacks in 436 pass attempts.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- The Murray State defense created four turnovers Thursday night, forcing three fumbles and an interception, in a 21-9 loss against Louisville at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium. The Cardinals took advantage of a Racer mistake to help to score three touchdowns over a 6:40 stretch late in the first quarter, early into the second. The Racers were able to put together their best drive of the first half late in the second quarter as they went on an 11-play drive that covered 66 yards and ended with a Kienan Cullen 30-yard field goal just before halftime. The defense was the story in the second half as the Racers held the Cardinals scoreless, and allowed just 131 yards after recess. Linebacker Victor Daniels forced a fumble in the third quarter that was recovered by Darrell Davis, and Kevin Robinson pounced on another third quarter miscue from the Cardinals. MSU found the endzone in the fourth quarter on the legs of running back Mike Harris. The senior capped a 13-play drive by breaking tackles and scampering 22 yards for the touchdown. Harris finished the game by rushing for 116 yards on 26 carries, becoming just the second Racer back to go over 100 yards against an FBS opponent. Brockman did not have his best game as a Racer, going 17-for-34 for 148 yards and three touchdowns. Ja-Vonta Trotter led the receivers with six catches for 68 yards. Julian Whitehead posted a team-best nine tackles in his debut, while Davis intercepted a pass to go along with his fumble recovery. Scoring Summary Murray State Louisville

MURRAY, Ky. -- Casey Brockman found Hannibal Beauford for a 16-yard touchdown pass with less than two minutes remaining to give Murray State the lead in a come-from-behind, 36-27, victory over Eastern Illinois on Homecoming. The Racers got a big effort from running back Mike Harris who rushed for 133 yards and tied a school record with four rushing touchdowns. He score on runs of one and 22 yards in the first half, and two and 24 yards in the fourth quarter. After Beauford’s touchdown gave the Racers the lead, defensive end Kevin Robinson secured the win on the Panthers next possession as he sacked the quarterback, forced a fumble and recovered it. Harris put the icing on the cake when he scored from 24-yards out on fourth down on the secondto-last play of the game. The Racers limited the Panthers to just 23 yards of offense in the fourth quarter, including holding EIU to minus-six yards rushing. Senior Kienan Cullen became the school’s all-time leader in career field goals when he connected on a 39-yard field goal just before halftime. The kick was the 50th of his career, and leaves him just two shy of the Ohio Valley Conference record. Prior to kickoff, Brockman was selected as the 2011 Homecoming King, becoming just the second football player to be honored. The other was his brother, Tyler, in 2009.

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. -- Murray State defensive end Tyler Evans blocked an extra point late in the fourth quarter, and the Racers survived a last-second scare in ending the season with a thrilling, 35-34, victory over Southeast Missouri. The Redhawks pulled within one point with 1:03 remaining, but Evans broke through the middle of the line to block the extra point. MSU recovered the onside kick and looked to have the game locked up, but a costly fumble set the Redhawks up at midfield. MSU withstood the drive and when the ball fell to the ground on fourth down, the Racers escaped with the win. The Racers jumped out to an early lead as Casey Brockman scored from six-yards out on the opening possession. Brockman came back in the second quarter and threw a touchdown pass to Patrick Robertson, before closing out the half by catching a 10-yard pass of his own. Mike Harris scored from five-yards out in the fourth quarter as he became just the 10th player to rush for over 1,000 yards in a season. He finished the game with 130 yards. Brockman finished the day throwing for 222 yards and two touchdowns, rushing for 77 yards and a score, and catching a 10-yard TD pass. Scoring Summary Murray State Southeast Missouri

NCAA FIRST ROUND

The Murray State Thoroughbreds took their 9-1 record into their first and only bowl game appearance. MSU traveled to Orlando, Fla., for a Tangerine Bowl encounter with Sul Ross State of Alpine, Texas. Murray State entered the game having outscored its opponents 259-65 during the regular season. MSU was led by halfbacks Winfred Dill and Joe Bronson, and end Bob Sanders, who doubled as the team’s kicker and booted a school-record 27 extra points. Sul Ross featured a massive lineman, Dan Blocker. The 6-4, 270-pound Blocker would later achieve fame in the role of Hoss Cartwright on the TV series “Bonanza.” Though Murray State stopped the Lobos when John Hackney recovered a fumble on the 1-yard line in the game’s opening drive, Sul Ross returned the favor by recovering a Murray fumble on the Thoroughbreds’ 2-yard line later in the quarter. Three plays later, Sul Ross took a 7-0 lead. The Lobos upped the lead to 14-0 early in the second quarter on a 29-yard pass, but Murray State answered quickly. Receiving the ensuing kickoff on his 15-yard line, Bronson scampered 85 yards for MSU’s first score. Sanders added the extra point, cutting the Sul Ross lead to 14-7. Later in the quarter, another Murray State fumble gave Sul Ross good field position, as the Lobos drove 26 yards in seven plays to take a 21-7 lead by halftime. The second half was all Murray State. Held to just six yards net rushing in the first half, MSU began moving the ball on the ground in the third quarter, and scored on a 7-yard touchdown run by Dale McDaniel to cut the lead to 21-14. After forcing Sul Ross to punt on its next possession, Murray State moved the ball to the Lobo 37, when McDaniel zipped 37 yards to paydirt. Sanders provided the extra point, tying the score at 21-all. MSU’s momentum was team-wide, as the Thoroughbred defense again held on the next possession and blocked the Lobos’ punt. With time running out, Murray State moved the ball to the Lobo 15-yard line, setting up Sanders for a fourth-down field goal attempt. The reeling Lobo defense was able to rise one last time, blocking the kick, and forcing the game to end in a tie.

Murray State made its first NCAA Division I-AA playoff appearance at home and entered the game ranked No. 2 in the nation, having won its last eight regular season games. In his second year guiding the Racers, head coach Mike Gottfried assembled a team which emphasized defense. Led by All-America safety Terry Love, the team rolled through the Ohio Valley Conference season with an unblemished 6-0 record, outscoring league foes 162-55. Overall, the Racer defense ranked fifth in the country in total defense and second in stopping the run, holding opponents to a mere 64.1 yards rushing per game. Future head coach Mike Mahoney was making his debut on the Racer coaching staff that season, in charge of the defensive line. Playing before the cameras of ABC Sports, Murray State’s playoff opponent was the No. 4 ranked Lehigh Engineers (the I-AA playoffs consisted of just four teams in 1979), who provided a stern test on a 38-degree day at Stewart Stadium. After the Racers failed to move the ball in their first possession, Lehigh marched 42 yards to the Racer 4-yard line. Three running plays netted but three yards, setting up a fourth down chip-shot field goal, but Love blasted through the line to block the kick, keeping the game scoreless. The game remained deadlocked until Lehigh “engineered” a 10-play, 63-yard touchdown drive in the second quarter, plunging over with 11:32 remaining in the half. Lehigh went ahead 14-0 later in the quarter, driving 57 yards in six plays. By halftime, Lehigh had outgained Murray State 223-85, and held a 154-55 rushing yardage advantage. The second half saw the Racers show signs of life, as David Tuck’s 24-yard field goal midway through the third quarter cut the lead to 14-3. The Racers closed the gap in the fourth to 14-9 on a 23-yard scoring pass from Ricky Ray to Greg King, set up by a 21-yard run off a fake punt by Kenny Davis. However, Lehigh answered by scoring two fourth quarter touchdowns to seal the contest.

Unlike their previous playoff appearance, the 1986 Racers were the underdogs against Eastern Illinois, as Murray State had to win its last six conference games to finish the season as Ohio Valley Conference co-champions and achieve a No. 18 ranking in the NCAA Division I-AA poll with a 7-3-1 record. Homestanding Eastern Illinois (10-1) entered the game ranked No. 3, and featured one of I-AA’s most-feared passing attacks, leading the nation with 326 yards per game. The Racers countered with a strong ground game, which had produced seven individual 100-yard rushing games, led by tailback Rodney Payne’s 838 yards. Through the air, freshman quarterback Michael Proctor threw for 1,508 yards and nine touchdowns. After the Racer defense stopped EIU on two drives, the Racers opened the scoring late in the first quarter, as Proctor found back Frank Thigpen open for a 2-yard touchdown pass, capping a nine-play, 79-yard drive. The Racers went ahead 14-0 early in the second quarter after recovering a fumble at the EIU 9-yard line. Proctor hit tight end Bob Jacob for Murray State’s second touchdown. But EIU’s offense heated up, scoring on two long scoring drives and tying the game 14-all by halftime. In the third quarter, MSU’s defense stopped EIU twice inside the 10-yard line, forcing the Panthers to settle for two field goals and a 2014 lead. The Racers answered late in the quarter. Led by tailback Bill Bird, who opened the drive with a 12-yard blast, the Racers drove 74 yards in 10-plays. Proctor capped the drive with his third touchdown pass of the afternoon, a 32yard strike to speedy wideout Stanley Howard. Paul Hickert’s extra point gave the Racers a 2120 lead with 11:26 remaining in the game. But after both teams traded punts, EIU took the lead for good, driving 72 yards in four quick plays. With the Racer defense loosened for the pass – EIU threw 54 times – the Panthers scored on a 9-yard run with 7:24 remaining. The two-point conversion gave EIU its final 2821 margin, as Murray State’s comeback hopes were dashed by a late interception.

NCAA QUARTERFINALS

In 1995, not one Racer was tabbed as a preseason All-Ohio Valley Conference selection, and although MSU finished fourth the previous two seasons after being picked to place ninth and seventh respectively, MSU was picked to finish sixth in the league’s preseason poll. The Racers didn’t let any of that stop them on their way to an unblemished 11-0 regular season in 1995. MSU began what would grow over three seasons to 19 straight OVC victories. Murray State entered the playoffs ranked fourth and seeded fourth. MSU hosted a determined Northern Iowa team in the first round, and the Panthers came ready to play. UNI jumped out in front 14-0 after a pair of touchdown passes from Chris Berg to Alonzo Clayton. A Derrick Cullors 10-yard scoring run got the Racers on the board, but Northern Iowa came right back with another Berg-to-Clayton scoring pass, this time from 31 yards out. It would not be the last the Racers would hear from Berg or Clayton. Mike Cherry connected with Kwabe Idelette for a 22-yard touchdown pass with eight seconds left in the first half to make it 21-14. A two-yard touchdown run by Cherry in the third quarter tied the score at 21-all. Berg gave UNI another 7-point cushion when he connected on a 60-yard touchdown pass in the closing seconds of the third quarter. MSU tied it again with another touchdown pass from Cherry, but Berg came right back and put the Panthers in front, 35-28, with a 12yard scoring toss. The Racers were stopped on downs on their next drive, but they forced a Northern Iowa punt and had the ball back with 3:12 left in the game. Cherry orchestrated a 10-play, 73-yard scoring drive capped off by a 7-yard touchdown run by David McCann. MSU only needed to convert the extra point to tie the game with 1:26 left on the clock. Chris Dill’s kick was blocked by Clayton, and Northern Iowa held on for the 35-34 upset. Murray State attempted an onside kick with hopes of getting the ball back, but the Panthers recovered the ball.

Murray State continued its Ohio Valley Conference dominance in 1996. The Racers went undefeated in the OVC for the second straight season. After an overtime loss to Western Kentucky in the first game of the season, MSU rolled to 10 straight victories to close out the regular season. The Racers out-scored their opponents in 1996 by an average score of 39-15. The balanced offensive attack averaged 233 yards through the air and 208 on the ground. The Murray State defense limited foes to just 259 yards per game. Promising they were more prepared than the year before when they were knocked off at home by Northern Iowa in the first round, the Racers blew open a close game against Western Illinois and won 34-6 in a steady rain. The victory was the first playoff win in program history. Neither team scored until Anthony Downs broke loose for a 45-yard touchdown run with 7:13 left in the second quarter. Murray State took that 7-0 lead into the locker room at halftime. A punt return by Western Illinois to the MSU 3-yard line set up a scoring run by Brian Knuckles. The Leathernecks couldn’t convert the extra point and Murray State led 7-6. Rob Hart connected on a 23-yard field goal with 7:42 left in the third quarter to extend the Racer advantage to 10-6. Another Hart field goal early in the fourth quarter opened up a 24-point final frame explosion by the offense, and the Racer defense continued to keep WIU out of the end zone. David McCann had a pair of 1-yard touchdown runs, and Donald Hitson capped the scoring with a 20-yard touchdown run with 1:30 left in the game. William Hampton’s 44-yard interception return set the Racers up at the WIU 14-yard line. After a penalty pushed MSU back to the 28, McCann ripped off a 27-yard run to set up his second touchdown. Murray State outgained Western Illinois 23245 on the ground, led by Downs and his 131 yards on 22 carries. McCann finished with 54 yards on 12 carries to go along with his two touchdowns.

With the first-ever playoff win under their belts, the Racers flew to Troy, Ala., to meet Troy. Though the defense played better than the score indicated, MSU was outmatched physically and couldn’t overcome five turnovers and a stingy Trojan defense. More was lost than a game on that day. Head coach Houston Nutt, who led MSU to national prominence in four short years, left for Boise State, and MSU lost one of its finest senior classes ever. Transfers such as Mike Cherry, Mathias Vavao, Donald Hitson, Deon Smith and Jesse Jones played just two years at MSU, but never lost an OVC game. The four-year seniors, what Nutt called “the core” - Terry Anthony, Willie Corbin, Elliott Dunn, Renardo Hampton, William Hampton, Anthony Hutch, David McCann, Carlos Ransey, Tim Scarborough and Tony Turner - suffered through lean times and emerged on the other side as champions. Troy scored a touchdown in the first and second quarters to carry a 14-0 advantage into the locker room at halftime. A 42-yard field goal by Rob Hart midway through the third quarter got the Racers on the board, but they still trailed 14-3 heading into the final quarter of play. Less than a minute into the fourth quarter the Trojans extended their lead to 17-3 on Matt Huerkamp’s 27-yard field goal. Joe Jackson’s second 1-yard touchdown run of the game capped an 8-play, 61-yard Troy drive and gave the home team a 24-3 lead with 4:55 left on the clock. Terrell Smith’s touchdown run from one yard out and 29 seconds remaining in the game set the final score at 31-3. Murray State finished with more first downs than the Trojans, 16 to 15, but the Troy State defense limited the Racers to only 15 net rushing yards, while the Troy offense ran for 253 yards. Troy’s balanced rushing attack left Arrid Gregory with 89 yards, Jackson with 72 and Stan Davis with 66. Cherry had a tough day, throwing four interceptions and completing just 18-of-40 pass attempts.

NCAA FIRST ROUND The 2002 Racers were not expected to be playoff contenders. It took a last-second field goal in the final game of the regular season to give Murray State a share of the Ohio Valley Championship and the league’s automatic bid to the playoffs. Billy Blanchard, MSU’s last 1,000-yard rusher, led an MSU running game that averaged 249.6 yards per game in 2002. Unfortunately the Racers drew a first round match-up with a Western Kentucky team destined to win the national championship. The Hilltoppers used a potent running game of their own to dispatch MSU in the first round. WKU left little doubt after scoring on four of its first five possessions and putting up 24 unanswered points in the first quarter. A missed field goal attempt from 54 yards out was the only time the Hilltoppers didn’t put points on the board the first five times they got the ball. Western scored three times on the ground in the opening frame. Deandre Green’s 18-yard touchdown reception early in the second period drew the visitors to within 24-7, but the Hilltoppers kept scoring. Western’s fourth rushing touchdown made it 38-14 at halftime. Less than two minutes into the second half Western made it seven scores in nine chances. The Hilltoppers would be forced to punt just twice in the entire game. Murray State managed just one touchdown in the second half as Western Kentucky rolled to a 59-20 win and moved one step closer on its path to the national title. WKU outgained the Racers 350 to 103 on the ground for the game. Three Hilltoppers had 80 or more yards on the ground led by Jeremi Johnson’s 160. Maurice Bradley had three of WKU’s five scoring runs. Ron Lane led Murray State with 66 yards. Blanchard scored MSU’s only rushing touchdown. Stewart Childress completed 12 of 24 passes for Murray State and totaled 149 yards through the air. He tossed a pair of scoring passes. Green finished with 127 yards on eight catches to go along with his touchdown reception. Jimmy St. Louis capped an 8-play, 58-yard scoring drive in the fourth quarter with a 1-yard touchdown catch.
