2 Division I National Title Appearances (1997, 2002) • 14 Division I Playoff Appearances • 13 SLC Championships

McNeese in the Postseason With 14 appearances in the Football Championship Subdivision playoffs (FCS), McNeese State more than doubles the appearances of any other Southland Conference school. The Cowboys have posted an 11-14 record in the FCS playoffs, including two national championship appearances (1997 and 2002) and another semifinal spot (1995). McNeese has also appeared in three Independence Bowl games, including a 20-16 victory over Tulsa in the inaugural bowl game on Dec. 13, 1976. It was the first time McNeese appeared in a Division I postseason game. Other appearances were a 31-7 loss to Art Monk’s Syracuse team in the 1979 bowl and a 16-14 setback to Southern Mississippi in 1980. In 1991, McNeese State made its first of five straight appearances in the FCS playoffs, falling to No. 1 ranked Nevada 22-16. The Cowboys won their first playoff game the next year in a 23-20 win over Idaho but fell 29-7 to Northern Iowa in the quarterfinals. In 1995, McNeese capped off a perfect 11-0 regular season with a trip to its first-ever semifinals, but Marshall freshman quarterback Chad Pennington led his Thundering Herd to a 25-13 win. In 1997, McNeese slugged its way in dramatic fashion into its first FCS title game appearance, only to see it fall 10-9 to Youngstown, and in 2002, returned to the championship in a 34-14 loss to Western Kentucky, a team it had beaten convincingly earlier in the season, 38-13.

Cowboy Stadium McNeese State’s Cowboy Stadium has traditionally been one of the most feared places to play for opposing teams. Dubbed “The Hole” for its unique design and layout, the stadium was constructed in 1965 and renovated and expanded to a 17,410 seating capacity in 1975. Added in 1998 was a $3 million, three tier press box. In 2005, a new scoreboard and sound system ($1.1 million renovation) debuted. And in 2008, a GEOMAX2 artificial turf was put in. The Cowboys also have a practice area (A.I. Ratcliff Field) that includes three football fields on the east side of the stadium. Throughout its 47 year history, Cowboy Stadium has hosted standout players such as Roger Staubach (Pensacola Navy, 1968), Terry Bradshaw (Louisiana Tech, 1967 and 1969), Jackie Smith (Northwestern State, 1960), Chad Pennington (Marshall, 1995), Daunte Culpepper (Central Florida, 1995), just to name a few. McNeese has racked up 179 wins at home in the history of Cowboy Stadium and has posted at .688 (179-81-5) home field winning percentage. The Cowboys have also had nine unbeaten seasons at home with three of those coming since the year 2000 (2-0 in 2005, 8-0 in 2002 and 5-0 in 2000). Since 2000, McNeese is 53-16 (.768) in Cowboy Stadium.

McNeese State debuted its new GeoMax2 infilled “replicated grass” playing field in 2008. The project was financed by longtime university supporter Robert Noland and at his request the field was named the Louis Bonnette Field in honor of the school’s longtime sports information director. GSE GeoSport Surfaces, which is the largest geo-synthetics manufacturer in the world and the inventors of all rubber infill “replicated grass” installed the turf. McNeese booster clubs - the Cowboy Club, the Quarterback Club and the Petrochem Athletic Association - provided additional funding for the project. Bonnette retired from McNeese State this past June after serving 46 years as the school’s first and only Sports Information Director. Bonnette, a native of Pineville and graduate of Louisiana Tech, has received numerous professional honors in his career. Twice he served as president of the Louisiana Sports Writers Association and the LSWA presented him with its highest honor, the Mac Russo Award. He was inducted into the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame in the sports journalism division and in 2009; he was inducted into the College Sports Information Directors of America Hall of Fame; is a member of the McNeese State Athletic Hall of Fame and the Southland Conference Hall of Honor. Bonnette worked his 500th consecutive football game on October 24, 2009 and holds the CoSIDA (College Sports Information Directors of America) record for most consecutive football games worked, a number that stands at 526 and is expected to continue.

Pictured with Robert Noland (second from the right) are McNeese Athletic Director Tommy McClelland, Louis Bonnette and former McNeese President Dr. Robert Hebert.

2012 Season Preview QUARTERBACK After a successful showing in his first full season as the starting quarterback, junior Cody Stroud returns under center for the Pokes. In 2011, Stroud completed 183 passes in 301 attempts for 2,009 yards and nine touchdowns. He had five gaves where he tossed for over 200 yards and set a career-high with 312 yards passing on 24 of 38 completions and a td against Central Arkansas. It was just the 11th 300-yard passing game in school history and the first since Derrick Fourroux threw for 341 yards against Appalachian State in 2009. Backing up Stroud will be redshirt freshman Tyler Bolfing out of Montgomery High School in Montgomery, Texas. 2012 Quarterbacks 18 Cody Stroud (Jr.-2L, 6-3, 194, Montgomery, La.) 19 Tyler Bolfing (Fr.-RS, 6-2, 202, Montgomery, Texas) TIGHT END Senior Josh Jordan and junior Manny Busch make up the 2-deep for the Cowboys at the tight end position.

2 Division I National Title Appearances (1997, 2002) • 14 Division I Playoff Appearances • 13 SLC Championships

2012 Season Preview SECONDARY The Cowboys have perhaps one of the top safeties in the FCS division in returning three-time first team All-Southland Conference senior Malcolm Bronson. This season he can join a select list of only five former players who have been named to the SLC first team four years in a row. One is his uncle, Zack Bronson, who played for the Cowboys from 1993 to 1996 and went on to be a standout DB for the San Franciso 40ers. A year ago Bronson (2012 preseason All-SLC first team), named the team’s most valuable player for 2011, led the Cowboys with 90 tackles and he also had three pass interceptions. He will go into the 2012 campaign with 237 career tackles and 10 interceptions. Also returning in the secondary as a starter is cornerback Seth Thomas while safety Ford Smesny has seen starting duty. Thomas, who two years ago earned a national player of the week honor, made 40 tackles last season and Smesny was in on 32. 2012 Secondary CB 6 Guy Morgan (Jr.-1L, 6-0, 182, Baton Rouge, La.) 13 Gabe Hamner (Fr.-RS, 6-0, 185, Sealy, Texas) CB 8 Seth Thomas (Sr.-3L, 5-9, 190, Orange, Texas) 21 Aaron Sam (So.-1L, 5-9, 191, Lake Charles, La.) BS 1 Ford Smesny (Sr.-3L, 5-9, 188, Dayton, Texas) 5 Chris Raggett (Sr.-3L, 5-11, 200, Beaumont, Texas) WS 11 Terence Cahee (Jr.-2L, 5-9, 182, Westlake, La.) 20 Wallace Scott (Fr.-RS, 6-0, 212, Weyanoke, La.) FS 34 Malcolm Bronson (Sr.-3L, 5-11, 192, Jasper, Texas) 38 Ryan Bronson (Jr.-2L, 6-1, 185, Jasper, Texas) DEFENSIVE LINE The Cowboys will stack up pretty well on the “Blue Wall” (the resurrection of the McNeese defensive front line). Preseason all-conference RT Pat Williams returns and will be joined by LE Chris Loveless, LT Michael Ware and RE Everett Ellefsen as the starting unit. Williams ranked sixth on the team last season with 41 tackles, tied for the team lead with two sacks, and was second with seven tackles for a loss. Loveless had 30 tackles with 2.5 tackles for a loss, Ware made 24 stops with two TFLs and Ellefsen 16 hits with two TFLs and a sack. 2012 Defensive Line LE 99 Chris Loveless (Jr.-2L, 6-5, 239, Houston, Texas) 93 Eric LeBlanc (Sr.-2L, 6-1, 242, Erath, La.)

LINEBACKERS Returning starter Joe Narcisse earned a national linebacker of the week award last year as he’ll be back to anchor the linebacker corps. Narcisse ranked third on the team in 2011 with 54 tackles and was tied for the team lead with outgoing senior Desmund Lighten with 7.5 tackles for a loss. Sophomore Deonte Thompson has been tabbed as the starter at the other linebacker position. As a freshman last year, Thompson recorded 38 tackles and had 4.5 tackles for a loss. Sophomore Orrin Fontenot (nine tackles) and junior Hayden Dobbs (23 hits) are expected to see ample playing time. 2012 Linebackers LB 10 Joe Narcisse (Sr.-3L, 5-11, 212, Vacherie, La.) 41 Hayden Dobbs (Jr.-2L, 6-0, 220, Houston, Texas) LB 12 Deonte Thompson (So.-1L, 6-2, 212, Shreveport, La.) 16 Orrin Fontenot (So.-1L, 6-2, 228, Baton Rouge, La.) SPECIAL TEAMS Darius Carey, TSN preseason all-America first team, was one of the most explosive kick returners in the country last year and he’ll return to try to build on the numbers that got him named to four postseason All-America teams. Carey ranked second in the nation in punt returns with a 16.9 average and also had a 68 yarder for a touchdown. As a kick returner, he averaged 20.4 yards on 14 returns. Champlain Babin will be the go-to guy for kickoffs again once this year. Babin led the team with 23 returns and 530 yards and compiled a 23.0 KO return average. Senior kicker Josh Lewis led the team in scoring last year with 65 points as he connected on 11 of 18 field goals and 32 of 33 of his extra points. Lewis has made 39 field goals in his career and 110 PATs. McNeese will debut a new punter this year and that will fall on the shoulders of true freshman Jean Breaux of Acadiana High School. Breaux averaged 43.5 yards on 38 punts as a senion at AHS last season and earned first team all-district, all-Acadiana, and honorable mention all-state honors. 2012 Special Teams PK 2 Josh Lewis (Sr.-3L, 6-0, 190, Denham Springs, La.) 40 James Bice (So.-SQ, 6-0, 180, Lake Charles, La.) 31 Jean Breaux (Fr.-HS, 5-10, 155, Scott, La.)

Coaching Staff

Viator McNeese State, 1986

Head Coach (45-20, 7th season) One of the most successful coaches in the NCAA’s FCS division, McNeese State’s Matt Viator has put together winning percentages of 69 percent (overall) and 75 percent (league games only) in his previous six years as the Cowboy head coach. During that period he has led his team to three Southland Conference titles and to two runnerup finishes, averaging seven victories a year. The winningest active coach in the league, Viator will carry a 45-20 overall record and a 31-10 league mark into the upcoming season. The Cowboy coach, a graduate of McNeese, had served as an assistant coach on the staff for eight years before stepping into the top job four games deep into the 2006 season. Taking over a squad that had won but one of its first four games he led the team to a 6-2 record the rest of the way that year, won the SLC title and put his team into the NCAA championship playoffs. That was the start of one of the most electrifying coaching rises in conference history as the very next year his team posted only the fourth undefeated, untied regular season record in the university’s history, won the league title for a second year and participated in the NCAA FCS championship for a second straight year. Since then his team also won the 2009 title and finished second in the league standings in both 2008 and 2010. The Cowboys finished fourth last season. Viator has earned numerous coaching honors including two SLC coach of the year awards and a Louisiana collegiate coach of the year honor. He has also been a finalist for the national Eddie Robinson award twice. He claimed his first collegiate coaching victory in his very first game as head coach when the Cowboys posted a 30-27 win over Southern Utah in 2006. His 45th win came in the final game of the 2011 season – a triumph on the road against Lamar as the Cowboys won their last three games and will carry that winning streak into the 2012 season. Viator is the 14th head coach in McNeese history. His 6-2 rookie record included a 5-1 mark in league play, the 48

team winning the final five league games of the year. His teams have been ranked in the top 25 national poll four of the last six seasons. Prior to his becoming head coach, Viator had served the university as offensive coordinator and is regarded as one of the top Division I offensive minds. The Cowboys have ranked among the national leaders in offense for eight of the past 11 years and the university has also produced the Southland Conference’s top offensive performer four of the last eight seasons. His offenses have led the league in scoring five times and in 2008 set school records for total offense per game, passing offense per game and scoring average per game. The Cowboys had the nation’s leading scorer in 2009, tailback Toddrick Pendland, and a year ago had the No. 2 punt returner in the nation in Darius Carey, a returnee for 2012. Before he joined McNeese, Viator was one of the top prep coaches in Louisiana, producing an 81-37 wonlost record, winning one state crown and five league titles. He joined McNeese in 1999 as linebacker coach and was made offensive coordinator in 2000, the Cowboys leading the league in both scoring offense and total offense that year. He is married and wife Schantel is a school teacher. His father is the late Nolan Viator, a former Cowboy coach, player (QB, MVP) and member of the McNeese Hall of Fame.

Tommy McClelland Athletic Director

Tommy McClelland was named athletic director at McNeese State on March 19, 2008. Prior to being named Athletic Director, McClelland served as Interim Athletic Director and Assistant Athletic Director of Internal Affairs. In his short time at McNeese McClelland has been quick out of the gate. He started the “Partner with the Pokes” program that provides a smaller, more attractive sponsorship package for local small businesses. On top of the “Partner with the Pokes” program, McClelland has raised over $2.8 million in private donations since April of 2007 and was instrumental in increasing corporate sponsorships over $750,000, while securing new clients and multi-year sponsorships. He also planned and helped implement a multi-city summer tour, the “Cowboy Round-Up Tour.” The Cowboy Round-Up tour is a two week period in June where coaches, administrators and other department staff travel to various cities in Southwest Louisiana and Southeast Texas. Fans have the opportunity to meet with coaches and administrators to talk about Cowboy and Cowgirl athletics. McClelland was also responsible for increasing football season ticket sales in 2008 for the then highest total in school history to 8,008 and then topped that at 8,035 in 2009. In addition, he was instrumental in setting single game attendance records in Volleyball, Softball, Soccer and Women’s Basketball. McClelland is not just limited to selling tickets. He devised a plan to resurrect the “M” Club for former student-athletes. He negotiated a new syndicated radio network for football, men’s and women’s basketball and baseball. Included in that deal was the first ever radio station that was solely dedicated to broadcasting women’s basketball. McClelland also re-negotiated football’s TV replay contract from a one station deal to broadcasting games on three different stations and the internet. One of the main goals for McClelland was to improve the life of the student-athletes and increase the fans experience. The most effective way to accomplish both goals is to improve athletic facilities. In his short time as Athletic Director, McClelland has overseen the completion of: • New bleachers in Memorial Gym • Chair backed center section of Cowgirl Diamond • Canopy over the stairwell on the north end of Cowboy Stadium • Hodges Street Field House • New grandstands at Cowboy Diamond • New bleachers at Cowgirl Soccer Field • New artificial synthetic replicated turf at Cowboy Stadium • New Basketball court and goals • Upgraded football practice facilities • Covered center section at softball facility •New lights for Cowgirl Field (soccer) • New weight room for track field house • Renovation of men’s basketball and women’s volleyball offices, including a new state of the art theater style media room in Memorial Gym • Renovation and expansion of the Jack V. Doland Fieldhouse A combined total of over $11 million dollars in facility renovation and new construction has been made since 2007. During his tenure as Athletic Director, McNeese has won the Southland Conference football championship (2007, 2009), Southland Conference Soccer tournament (2006) and regular season championship (2007), Southland Conference Softball Tournament (2010), the Southland Conference Men’s Basketball Regular Season (2011) and the Southland Conference Women’s Regular Season (2011) and the State Farm Southland Conference Women’s Basketball Tournament (2011). In 2011, under McClelland’s leadership, McNeese State hosted the First Round of the NIT postseason tournament as they hosted ACC member Boston College live on ESPNU. Even though McNeese State has had a tremendous amount of success in athletics, McClelland prides himself on building character in his studentathletes. In four of the past five years, McNeese State has led the Southland Conference with student-athletes being named to the Commissioner’s Honor Roll. In addition McClelland has guided the resurgence of the department’s APR success. Since taking over, McNeese State has gone from four teams with or above the required .925 APR rating to 13, and projections have all 16 at or above that number. Since the beginning of his tenure, the community service hours performed by the MSU student-athletes have triple to over 2,000 each year. In everything that McClelland preaches, one word always comes to the forefront...Championships. “Championships in the classroom, on the field/court and in life. That is what motivates me to become the athletics administrator I desire to be.” McClelland holds both a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree from Northwestern State where he was a football and track standout. The native of Basile, LA., served as a graduate assistant at Northwestern State in athletics and also worked at the Southland Conference office as an administrative intern, assisting with championship events. McClelland is also a 2012 graduate of the Executive Program of the Sports Management Institute and attended instruction at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s Kenan-Flagler Business School and the University of Southern California’s Marshall School of Business. McClelland is married to the former Jessica Stokes of Garrison, Texas. They have two sons, Lawson and Grayson. They reside in Lake Charles.

2012 Preseason All-Conference Football Team

In an era of considerable change in intercollegiate athletics, the Southland Conference continues to be a model of innovation, stability and consistent achievement as it celebrates the academic and athletic accomplishments of its member institutions. What began as a small gathering of college administrators nearly 50 years ago, the Southland Conference has transformed itself into a dynamic and respected consortium of 11 member Tom Burnett universities in four states. Beginning with a historic meeting Commissioner of five institutions in Dallas on March 15, 1963, that included current member Lamar University (then Lamar State College of Technology), the Southland Conference set on an extraordinary course that has proven successful well into its fifth decade of existence. The successful transformation continues. On Oct. 11, 2011, the Southland Conference announced the addition of Oral Roberts University, effective for the 2012-13 academic year, marking the league’s first entry into the state of Oklahoma and the Tulsa metropolitan area. Shortly thereafter, on Nov. 21, the Southland announced the addition of Houston Baptist University for the 2013-14 academic year, giving the league an 11th member and its first institution in the region’s largest city, home to significant student-recruitment and alumni bases. In addition to its two newest members, the Southland Conference membership also consists of the University of Central Arkansas, Lamar University, McNeese State University, Nicholls State University, Northwestern State University, Sam Houston State University, Southeastern Louisiana University, Stephen F. Austin State University and Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi. All told, the membership of the Southland encompasses approximately 120,000 current students and an alumni base of nearly 700,000. Famous alums from current Southland Conference schools include former CBS news anchor Dan Rather (Sam Houston State), NBA executive Joe Dumars (McNeese State), ABC news anchor Robin Roberts (Southeastern Louisiana), major League Baseball stars Kevin Millar (Lamar) and Mike Miley (Southeastern Louisiana), NBA legend Scottie Pippen (Central Arkansas), Grammy Award-winning musicians Don Henley and Rodney Crowell (both Stephen F. Austin), NFL standout Lardarius Webb (Nicholls State), PGA Tour golfer Chris Stroud (Lamar), award-winning filmmaker Richard Linklater (Sam Houston State, American Idol winner Kris Allen (Central Arkansas), NCAA football coach Charlie Strong (Central Arkansas), TV personality Kathie Lee Gifford (Oral Roberts), and NFL coaching legend O.A. “Bum” Phillips (Lamar, Stephen F. Austin). The Southland sponsors 17 championship sports, all at the NCAA Division I level. The eight men’s sports include baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, tennis, and indoor and outdoor track and field. The women compete for nine championships in basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, softball, tennis, indoor and outdoor track and field, and volleyball. The conference earns automatic qualification to NCAA championships in baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s cross country, football, men’s and women’s golf, women’s soccer, softball, men’s and women’s tennis, and volleyball. 66
