1999 Season Preview Otterbein football should turn the corner before the new millenium. The Cardinals—^just missing the .500 mark in 1998—head into the new season with four solid classes as head coach Wally Hood prepares for his fifth season with the Cardinals. “This is the most experienced team we’ve had since I’ve been here,” Hood says. “Based on our finish last year, how we played competitively, the expectations of our players are higher than they have ever been.” Nineteen of 20 starters eligible to return are either juniors or seniors. The Cardinals could field as many as 18 seniors this season. _________________________________ the ma^n^goais set for this “record

expectations of our players are higher than they have ever been. ”

record this school has had in 16 years,” Hood says. That was 1982 when Otterbein, under coach Rich Seils, went 5-4, capping off four consecu­ tive seasons of winning football. “This team reminds me, to a certain degree, of when I was at Northern in ’82,” Hood says. The Polar Bears, 6-31 overall, captured the OAC Blue Division with a 4-0-1 mark. “We had juniors who were good,” Hood says. “We had some really good seniors—I mean good seniors at the right spots. We had a senior quarterback, who took over. We had a senior running back, who was good. We had a senior tight end, who was the best in the league. “You have to have some luck along the way, too,” Hood continues. “We won the title game (Blue Division) by throwing a halfback option pass out of the end zone.” The strength of the 1999 squad should come from the skilled players on offense. The Cardinals return nine starters, led by senior quarterback Matt D’Orazio, who has the potential. Hood believes, to become the best quarterback in the league this season. D’Orazio completed 150 of 290 pass attempts for 2,115 yards and 12 touchdowns last season. He threw just five interceptions. Tight ends Joe Simmons (28 rec., 1 td., 340 yds.), a junior, and Jeff Gibbs (25 rec., 4 tds., 381 yds.), a sopho­ more; and wide receivers Ben Streby (27 rec., 5 tds., 573 yds.) and Dwane Rowley (17 rec., 2 tds., 329 yds.) both seniors, return. Gibbs caught ten passes in the season finale against Marietta for a school-record 194 yards. Senior Aaron Carmean, the squad’s top receiver as a sophomore in 1997 (58 rec., 6 tds., 730 yds.), plans to return after missing last season. And the Cardinals enter ’99 with a revamped running attack bolstered by the late-season heroics from junior running back Shane Rannebarger (479 yds., 9 tds.). He started the final four games of the season, rushing for 465 yards and seven touchdowns in those starts. Also back are running backs Travis Fankhauser (187 yds., 2 tds./20 rec., 161 yds.), a senior, and Brian Newland (135 yds., 1 td.), a sophomore. Adam Stanley, a junior transfer from Allegheny, and David Anon, a junior, will battle for the opening at fullback. Stanley played in seven games last season, rushing for 218 yards on 32 carries.

“From an offensive perspective,” Hood says, “we have more weapons to score than we’ve ever had since I’ve been here.” But coach Hood does have some concerns regarding depth on the offensive line. Starters Dan Largent, a senior center, and Nicholas Neria, a junior tackle, anchor the line. Several starters or part-time starters return, including senior tackles Tim Sautter and Scott Bruce; junior guards Adam Kurena and Greg Curry; and sophomore guard Brian Foos. Freshman Chuck Black, whom coach Hood expects to become “the strongest kid on the team,” should also be in the running for playing time. The defensive unit, under new defensive coordinator Jim Bickel, returns nine starters. “The biggest challenge that coach Bickel has on defense is to get the kids to believe that what we are doing is right,” Hood says. “We have the people who can do what we have outlined in the playbooks. We just have to execute and play hard.” The linebacking corps, spearheaded by inside linebacker Roger Ailiff, a senior, enters the new season as the heart and soul of the Cardinal defense. Ailiff, a first team All-OAC pick, made 100 stops, including five for a loss, last season. Outside linebackers Matt Kruger (52 tackles) and Sheldon Steinke (102 stops), both seniors, return to the starting lineup. Senior tackle Matt Zingery (69 stops, 7 for a loss), a second team All-OAC pick, and junior tackle Dave Ritchey (34 tackles) return to the starting lineup. Probable starters at defensive end include senior Mike Harris (9 stops, three pass sacks) and sophomore Andre Mock, a transfer from the University of Toledo. Senior free safety Steve Jones (60 tackles), and junior strong safety Mike Mancuso (53 stops) headline the defensive backfield. Starting corners Deke Hocker (33 stops, 3 int.), a senior, and Brent McCoy (40 tackles), a junior, return. Otterbein also returns second team All-OAC punter Brett Dorsett, a junior. Dorsett, who also handles the placekicking duties, averaged 40.8-yards a punt last season, sixth best in NCAA Division III.

Facilities Memorial Stadium (5,000 capacity), with a 400meter all-weather track around a natural grass football field, underwent major renovation in 1989-90. New outdoor track and field facilities were installed in 1988 through a $100,000 donation from Mrs. Dorothy McVay, from Westerville. In 1989, the gridiron was named in honor of Dwight “Smokey” Ballenger, a 1939 graduate of Otterbein. A $100,000 lighting system, courtesy of Cellular One, was installed in 1996. Additional outdoor sports facilities include tennis courts, and separate fields for softball, baseball and soccer. A 2.5-mile cross country course, which meanders Alum Creek and traverses woods and farmland, opened in the fall of 1995. Built in 1974, the Rike Center houses men’s and women’s athletics and physical education facilities and offices. The domed roof encloses an intercollegiate hardwood basketball floor with seating for 3,100; a tenth-

mile oval track with an 87-yard straightaway and seating for 600; nets and space to segment three courts each for volleyball, basketball or tennis; equipped weight training room; two handball courts; gymnastics space; and locker rooms for varsity teams and physical education classes. Additionally, nets serve to section off a baseball infield and batting cages. Conventional classrooms and offices are located on the perimeter. A $300,000 gift from the Rike family of Dayton inaugurated the capital campaign to finance construction of the Rike Center, which was built for about $1.5 million. Gifts from the Otterbein alumni and friends have helped provide educational opportunities through athletics for sportsminded students. Former student-athletes have continued their success in coaching, teaching, recreational and professional fields—evidence of quality educational experiences offered at Otterbein College.

The Ohio Athletic Conference Moving Progressively into the 21st Century Commissioner: Timothy W. Gleason Assist. Commissioner: Angela Dudziak Supervisor of Officials: Gordon Schutt Secretary: Charlene Stoner

Welcoming a brand new century, the Ohio Athletic Con­ ference (OAC) continues to grow in stature as one of the nation's premier conferences. To wit, all nine current OAC members had at least one team finish in the NCAA Sweet 16 last year, a feat that will be difficult to match. All told, the OAC garnered one national championship, three Final Fours, five Elite Eights and five more Sweet 16s in 199899. Individually, the OAC boasted 59 All-America selections and 28 Academic All-Americans, including two national Academic Players of the Year. In addition, a usual plethora of players and coaches received national honors for their achievements. The OAC, the third oldest conference in college athlet­ ics, is predated only by the Michigan Intercollegiate Ath­ letic Association (1888) and the Big Ten (1895). The Con­ ference is older than the Rose Bowl, the World Series and even the NCAA itself and has survived two world wars, the Great Depression, the Korean War and the Vietnam Con­ flict. From a modest beginning of six charter members in 1902, the OAC grew to as many as 24 members in the mid-1920s. Through the years a total of 30 colleges and universities at one time or another have been members of the OAC. Mailing Address:

Currently the Conference consists of nine members, in­ cluding Baldwin-Wallace College, Capital University, Fleidelberg College, John Carroll University, Marietta College, Mount Union College, Muskingum College, Ohio Northern University and Otterbein College. In the OAC's first year of existence, 1902, the first Con­ ference champion was crowned— Case Tech won the football title with a 5-0-0 record. Outdoor track was added a year later and a third sport, cross country, became a Conference sport in 1914. More sports were steadily added to the OAC's repertoire throughout the years, culmi­ nating in the addition of women's sports in 1984. The Con­ ference currently sponsors championships in 21 sports, 11 men's and 10 women's, with women's golf sponsoring its first championship in 2000. The enrollments at the nine OAC institutions range from 1,200 to 4,000. All of the schools were founded in the 19th century and have long and outstanding academic reputa­ tions. While maintaining these high academic standards, Ohio Athletic Conference athletic teams and athletes have con­ sistently enjoyed a great deal of success on a regional and national level. The athletic competition is viewed not as an end in itself, but as an extension of the educational programs.
