About Robert Morris University

Robert Morris University was founded in 1921 in downtown Pittsburgh as the Pittsburgh School of Accountancy. The school’s founder, educator and accountant Andrew Blass, rented classroom space in the Blackstone Building. In 1935, the school’s president, Richard Khuen III, changed the name of the institution to the Robert Morris School of Business in honor of the founding father popularly known as the financier of the American revolution.   After leasing space at several other Pittsburgh locations, including downtown’s famed William Penn Hotel, Robert Morris purchased a building of its own in 1959, the Rust Engineering Building at 600 Fifth Ave. in downtown Pittsburgh. Three years later, Robert Morris acquired the estate of Oliver Kaufmann

in Moon in order to build its first residential campus. The first students on campus lived in the Kaufmann mansion, where today sits Massey Hall. A record 2,070 students lived at the Moon campus during the 2013-14 academic year. In the fall of 2013, RMU welcomed 980 new freshman students, the largest incoming class in its history.   In 1961, Robert Morris became a nonprofit institution so that it could become a junior college, a change necessitated by a decision of the Pennsylvania Institute of Certified Public Accountants to require candidates for the CPA exam to earn a college degree. The following year, the name of the school changed to Robert Morris Junior College, and then in 1969, it became Robert Morris College.

  Robert Morris continued to grow throughout the next three decades, expanding to include graduate degree programs and adding more bachelor’s programs as well. In 1977, Robert Morris joined the NCAA Division I for intercollegiate athletics.   In 2002, following approval by the Pennsylvania Department of Education, the school became Robert Morris University. In 2010, RMU sold the Pittsburgh Center to Duquesne University. In 2011, Robert Morris opened a new School of Business building at the Moon campus, and the next year the university unveiled the Wheatley Center for the School of Communications and Information Systems. This fall, the university opens another academic building, this time for the School of Nursing and Health Sciences.

Craig Coleman, M.D. Director of Athletics At the forefront of RMU’s golden age of intercollegiate athletics is Craig Coleman, M.D., who is in his 11th academic year as Director of Athletics at Robert Morris in 2015-16. He was named to the position Feb. 15, 2005.   Led by Coleman’s guidance, the RMU department of athletics has continued to progress on both a regional and national level.   Robert Morris continued its successful run in 2014-15, as both the men’s basketball and men’s golf teams claimed Northeast Conference (NEC) Tournament championships en route to appearances in the NCAA Tournament. It marks the second consecutive year RMU sent a pair of teams to an NCAA Tournament.   In addition to the success of the men’s basketball and men’s golf programs, the Robert Morris men’s ice hockey and softball teams claimed conference regular-season titles. Men’s ice hockey claimed its first Atlantic Hockey Conference (AHC) crown, while the softball team earned its fourth NEC regularseason title in the last five years.   Away from competition, the department of athletics continued to excel in the classroom with Coleman at the helm. Student-athletes who competed in 16 sports combined to post a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.250 during the 2014-15 academic year, with a total of 13 of RMU’s 16 programs finishing with team GPA’s of 3.0 or higher.   The success for the Colonials in 2014-15 is just part of a period of unparalleled growth for the department of athletics under Coleman’s leadership.   In 2013-14, the women’s basketball and men’s ice hockey teams earned automatic bids to the NCAA Tournament, the first time in school history a pair of teams earned automatic berths to the NCAA Tournament in the same year.   During the 2012-13 campaign, men’s basketball and softball claimed NEC regular-season championships. The men’s basketball squad also became the center of the college basketball universe when it defeated defending national champion Kentucky in the first round of the 2013 National Invitation Tournament (NIT) in front of 3,444 fans at the Charles L. Sewall Center, the largest crowd in school history.   The women’s ice hockey team claimed its first College Hockey America (CHA) Tournament championship in 2012. The Colonials snapped Mercyhurst’s streak of nine straight titles thanks to a 3-2 victory over the Lakers in

the championship game of the 2012 CHA Tournament at the RMU Island Sports Center.   In 2010, the football team earned the NEC’s inaugural bid to the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) Playoffs, the 12th straight year a program from Robert Morris earned an automatic bid in an NCAA Tournament. In addition, the men’s lacrosse program, in just its sixth year of existence, earned its first national ranking by the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA).   Overall in Coleman’s decade as director of athletics at Robert Morris, various programs have claimed 19 regular-season championships and earned 11 automatic berths to the NCAA Tournament.   RMU’s exploits academically during Coleman’s tenure have been just as impressive.   In his first year as director of athletics in 2005-06, Robert Morris placed a total of nine student-athletes covering six sports on the ESPN The Magazine District II Academic AllAmerica Team, the most in school history. RMU also earned the NEC Institutional Academic Award in both 2012 and 2014.   Coleman oversaw the development of a new Robert Morris athletics logo and mascot as well as the launching of the official website of RMU athletics at www.RMUColonials.com.   Seven head coaches have been hired by Coleman, including a pair of men’s basketball head coaches in Mike Rice and Andrew Toole. Also hired by Coleman are Midge McPhail (women’s rowing), Dale Starr (volleyball) and Paul Colontino (women’s ice hockey). 2015 ROBERT MORRIS UNIVERSIT Y FOOTBALL

  All the while, Coleman has built a winning softball program at Robert Morris over the past 25 years. During that period, RMU has won eight NEC regular-season championships and six NEC Tournament titles.   In 2014, Coleman won his 600th career game when the Colonials earned a 10-0 victory in six innings in the first game of a doubleheader split at Mount St. Mary’s April 6, 2014.   Prior to his arrival as head coach in 1991, the Colonials posted just 19 victories in the previous three seasons. During his 25 years as head coach, the Colonials have posted an overall record of 632-545-5 (.537), including a record of 275-112-2 (.710) against NEC foes.   In his first four years as head coach, Coleman guided the Colonials to an overall record of 119-62 (.657) and four NEC championships. In 1994, Robert Morris received its first national ranking in school history, regardless of sport, when the Colonials were ranked as high as No. 23 in the USA Today / National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) poll.   Coleman’s success as head softball coach has come not only on the field, but in the classroom, as well. His players include 18 Capital One District II Academic All-Americans, six NEC Scholar-Athletes of the Year for softball and numerous NEC Academic Honor Roll selections.   In the spring of 2011, former Colonial Annie Dubovec (2008-11) became the first female student-athlete in Robert Morris history to be named to the Capital One Academic All-America First Team by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).   Under Coleman’s watch, the Colonials finished in the top five in Division I in team GPA six consecutive years from 2009 to 2014 according to the NFCA, including the top mark in 2009, 2010 and 2012. Overall, Robert Morris has finished in the top five of team GPA a total of seven times since the 1999-2000 academic year.   Prior to being hired as RMU’s Director of Athletics, Coleman worked as an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine from 1988 to 2005. He served as the Medical Director of several impatient units, residential treatment facilities and partial hospital programs at UPMC.   Coleman earned his medical degree from The Pennsylvania State University School of Medicine in Hershey in 1983. In 1979, he earned an undergraduate degree in psychology from the University of Pennsylvania. He is a native of Philadelphia, Pa.

Weekly Gazette. The program moved into its own on-campus football stadium, named Joe Walton Stadium in honor of the program’s first head coach, in 2005.   The women’s rowing team claimed two straight Margaret McNiff Trophies in the varsity four classification at the prestigious Dad Vail Regatta in Philadelphia, Pa., in 2000 and 2001.

Shannon is one of a number of former Colonials that have played professional soccer after their career at Robert Morris, including Rhian Dodds (1998-2002), who played for Kilmarnock Football Club of the Scottish Premier League.   In addition to former RMU student-athletes playing in the professional ranks, inaugural women’s ice hockey goaltender Brianne McLaughlin (2005-09), who finished her career as the NCAA all-time saves leader, earned a silver medal at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, British Columbia, and again at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.   Athletes are not the only ties that RMU athletics has to the professional ranks. Joe Walton came to the Colonials after 35 years of experience in the NFL, including seven years as the head coach of the New York Jets. He built the Robert Morris football program from scratch and served 20 years as head coach from 1994 to 2013.   John Banaszak, who served as the program’s assistant head coach for six years, took the reigns of the program from Walton in 2014. Banaszak was a part of three championship teams with the Pittsburgh Steelers, claiming victories in Super Bowl X, XIII and XIV. The football coaching staff also featured Dan Radakovich, who spent 48 years in the coaching profession in both the college and NFL ranks, including 13 at Robert Morris, before retiring.   Former men’s soccer head coach John Kowalski also served as the head coach for the Pittsburgh Spirit of the Major Indoor Soccer League, the Tampa Bay Mutiny of MLS and the Pittsburgh Riverhounds of the A-League. Kowalski has come full circle, as he has been head coach of the Robert Morris women’s soccer team, a program that began in 1992, since 2001.

After 11 years of playing its football games less than a mile up the street at Moon Stadium, Robert Morris University opened Joe Walton Stadium in 2005, the first on-campus football field named in honor of a head coach that started the program from scratch and served 20 years at the helm.   The Colonials hosted Butler in the inaugural game at Joe Walton Stadium Sept. 17, 2005, in front of a standing-room-only crowd of 3,516, defeating the Bulldogs, 49-13. The 49 points scored by Robert Morris are the most ever scored by the program in a home opener.   Robert Morris cruised in the contest, scoring five touchdowns in the first half in building a 35-0 halftime lead. Four different Colonials scored touchdowns on the afternoon, including a five-yard touchdown catch by former tight end Jeremy Wise. That reception was the only catch in his four-year career.   Built over the course of 13 months and at a cost of $10 million by Mosites Construction Company, Joe Walton Stadium owns a capacity of 3,000 and features a 36,000-square-foot athletic administration building that holds office space for the football coaching staff, athletic administration and Olympic sport coaches. Also included in the building is a state-of-theart weight room, equipment room, two locker rooms, three classrooms, lobby, press box and President’s box.   The Joe Walton Stadium field covers 97,000 square feet, with the surface field turf. The turf consists of sand, rubber and film polyethylene grass-like fabric with secondary backing

of high polyurethane. The field, which was replaced in the summer of 2015, is lined for football, lacrosse and soccer. The scoreboard for the stadium was provided by Institutional Specialties, a distributor of Daktronics, located in Pittsburgh, Pa.   The music and public address system was provided by Hollowood Music and Sound in McKees Rocks, Pa., and Joe Walton Stadium also includes a portal and plaza. The portal includes 160 pavers to recognize donors to the campaign to raise funds for Joe Walton Stadium, while the plaza includes three kiosks, one each for tickets, concessions and the Barnes & Noble bookstore.

The Northeast Conference What is #NECPride #NECPride is about having pride in your team, your school and the will to succeed both on and off the field. #NECPride is about achievement, ambition, perseverance, community, passion, respect, determination, unity and teamwork.

Northeast Conference History Now entering its 35th year as an NCAA Division I athletic entity, the Northeast Conference mission remains unchanged: to provide opportunities for student-athletes to achieve their fullest potential in the classroom, in athletic competition and in the community.   Focusing on the areas of student-athlete achievement, academic excellence, integrity, sportsmanship, equity and diversity, innovation, community partnership and national engagement, the NEC has made significant strides in recent years under the leadership of Commissioner Noreen Morris. As the Conference builds around the theme of #NECPride, the 2015-16 academic year presents new opportunities for the NEC to stand out among its peers, while fostering a sense of pride amongst its student-athletes, coaches, administrators and fans.   When the Northeast Conference (NEC) was first established as the ECAC-Metro Conference back in 1981, the league’s founders had one goal in mind: to create a competitive NCAA Division I men’s basketball conference for unaffiliated schools on the Eastern seaboard. A singlesport entity at its inception, the NEC has grown far beyond expectations over the past three plus decades, having transformed itself into a 10-member, 22-sport conference.   The remarkable success story of the Conference began to unfold in 1985, when the league began sponsoring additional sports. Three years later, a change of name was in order and the Northeast Conference as we know it today was born. With membership and sport sponsorship continuing to grow over the years, the NEC now enjoys qualification or play-in access to 14 different NCAA Championships (baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, football, men’s and women’s golf, men’s and women’s lacrosse, men’s and women’s soccer, softball, men’s and women’s tennis and women’s volleyball).   Though the NEC has featured various incarnations since its inception, charter members Fairleigh Dickinson, LIU Brooklyn, Robert Morris, St. Francis Brooklyn, Saint Francis U. and Wagner remain part of the current 10-school alignment. They are joined by Mount St. Mary’s (admitted in 1989), Central Connecticut (1997), Sacred Heart (1999) and Bryant (2012). The NEC’s six-state geographic footprint includes access to such major media markets as New York City, Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Hartford and Providence.

  NEC member institutions now compete in 22 championship sports: baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, women’s bowling, men’s and women’s cross country, football, men’s and women’s golf, men’s and women’s indoor track and field, men’s and women’s lacrosse, men’s and women’s outdoor track and field, men’s and women’s soccer, softball, women’s swimming, men’s and women’s tennis, and women’s volleyball.

An Innovative Leader The NEC continues to embrace social media to attract and convey its message to a growing fan base. The Conference has built a loyal following on its Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube pages, and the NEC Overtime! blog remains a popular destination spot for fans of the league.   One of the landmark moments in Northeast Conference history came back in August, 2012 with the launch of NEC Front Row.   The NEC’s state-of-the-art digital network debuted to rave reviews and in the three years since has attracted a loyal following for its rich set of content, which includes live regular season and NEC Championship events, on-demand video, highlight packages, coaches shows, features, original programming and access to league’s extensive digital library, all free of charge to users. The network gives fans inside access to the NEC and its student-athletes on the field, in the classroom, across campus, and in the community.   By the conclusion of the 2014-15 academic year, over 2,100 live events had been broadcast on NEC Front Row with more than 800,000 viewers tuning in to the network.   The third year of NEC Front Row saw viewership increase by nearly 10 percent, with an increase in ratings in nearly every NEC sponsored sport.   In March, 2014 the Conference launched a companion NEC on the Run iOS mobile app that provides free, one-click access to live events and on-demand content from NEC Front Row. Fans can also join the conversation through the app’s social media integration. The NEC on the Run app can be downloaded on the iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.   For the third year in a row, the NEC hosted a Basketball “Social” Media Day at the state-of-the2015 ROBERT MORRIS UNIVERSIT Y FOOTBALL

18

art Barclays Center in Downtown Brooklyn. The program, which ceremoniously tipped off the 2014-15 hoops season, aired live on NEC Front Row and ESPN3. The Front Row broadcast was an interactive one during which fans were encouraged to tweet comments and questions with the best making it on air.   NEC Front Row was there when the basketball season tipped off at NEC “Social” Media Day, and returned for the climax as well via NEC Front Row Live! The online digital network was on the scene at the men’s and women’s title games, providing live pre- and post-game coverage wrapped around the ESPN broadcasts.   The 2014-15 season saw the NEC host nearly 50 GEICO Google+ Hangouts on Air, featuring one-on-one interviews with NEC student-athletes, coaches and media members. The Google+ Hangouts aired on a variety of social platforms, including NEC Front Row, Google+ and YouTube.   Having provided an alternate take on the world of NEC sports since 2011, the NEC Overtime! Blog continued to be a favorite destination for fans of the Conference and its members. The blog showcases top news and the best of social media content from around the NEC, and served as a home for numerous fan-based promotions during the 2014-15 academic calendar, including the #NECSelfie contest as part of the NEC Basketball Tournament.   The NEC launched its most comprehensive radio advertising campaign to date last winter.  The NEC maintained a season-long radio presence in every market it serves, including New York (WFAN Sports Radio 66 & 101.9 FM), Pittsburgh (93.7 FM “The Fan”), Baltimore (CBS Radio/ESPN Radio), Hartford (ESPN Radio/Fox Sports Radio), Altoona (ESPN Radio) and Providence (WPRO).

Success in the Classroom It was a landmark year for NEC’s 4,000+ studentathletes in the classroom.   NEC student-athletes averaged a record 3.19 GPA for the 2014-15 academic year and 76 percent of NEC teams finished with a 3.0 GPA or better. Over 1,900 student-athletes were named to the NEC Academic Honor Roll in 2014-15, and nearly 500 were tabbed to the Commissioner’s Academic Honor Roll with GPAs of 3.75 or higher. Likewise, five NEC student-athletes were tabbed Capital One Academic All-Americans.   The NCAA honored 34 NEC teams with public recognition awards for exceptional academic performance with respect to their latest Academic Progress Rate scores. NEC institutions also ranked among the nation’s elite in Graduation Success Rate (GSR) figures released by the NCAA with 32 teams achieving a perfect 100 percent GSR in their respective sports and 44 percent earning a GSR of over 90 percent. Student-athletes at Sacred Heart and Wagner posted identical 3.28 GPAs to share the 2014-15 NEC Institutional Academic Award.


Athletic Achievement To have #NECPride is to live it, and NEC studentathletes did just that on the field of play during the 2014-15 season, a year that yielded 19 AllAmerican selections, five Capital One Academic All-Americans, and eight teams which earned national rankings in their respective sports.   The NEC sent representatives to NCAA Championship events in 14 different team sports in 2014-15, highlighted by Fairleigh Dickinson qualifying for the NCAA Bowling Championship for the 11th time in 12 years.   In men’s and women’s basketball, a combined five teams competed in the postseason.   The golden era of Robert Morris men’s basketball showed no signs of letting up. Playing on the road before a raucous, SRO crowd at the Pope Center in Brooklyn, the Colonials won their record eighth NEC men’s basketball championship with a 66-63 victory over top-seeded St. Francis Brooklyn. RMU also won a postseason game for the fourth straight season after rallying to defeat North Florida in an NCAA First Four game. Individually, St. Francis Brooklyn’s Jalen Cannon became the NEC’s all-time rebound leader and was named NEC Player of the Year.   In front of a coast-to-coast audience on ESPNU, St. Francis Brooklyn capped its Cinderella postseason run by defeating Robert Morris, 7762, to capture the first NEC women’s basketball title in program history. Seeded fifth, the Terriers became the first team in conference annals to win three road games en route to the title.   NEC football produced eight All-Americans, four of whom came from NEC co-champions Sacred Heart and Wagner. The Pioneers, who represented the conference in the FCS playoffs for the second straight season, became the second NEC program to finish the year ranked in both the FCS Coaches (23rd) and Sports Network (24th) polls.    LIU Brooklyn sprinter Brendon Rodney earned NCAA Indoor Track & Field All-America honors in the 200-meter dash for the third straight year. He went on to earn the fifth All-America honor of his remarkable career at the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championship.  Led by Rodney and fellow outdoor All-American Mica-Jonathan Petit-Homme (400h), LIU Brooklyn men’s outdoor track and field won the prestigious IC4A Championship.   LIU women’s volleyball scored wins over Alabama, Fresno State, Boston College, Western Kentucky and #25 Michigan State during the 2014 regular season. The three-time defending NEC champion Blackbirds have gone undefeated in conference regular season play in each of the last three seasons, posting a 44-0 league record over that span. The perfect combination of student and athlete, LIU Brooklyn’s Annika Foit became the first women’s volleyball student-athlete in NEC history to win three consecutive NEC Player of the Year awards. She was also tabbed to the Capital One Academic All-America first team.   The CCSU men’s cross country dynasty extended to six as the Blue Devils delivered a dominant performance on their home course, finishing one through five at the NEC Championships. CCSU is one of six programs in NEC history to win at least six straight conference titles in any sport.

  A year after stunning Syracuse in a run to the NCAA quarterfinals, Bryant won its fourth straight NEC men’s lacrosse championship. Kevin Massa was named a USILA All-American for the third straight year, while Bulldog teammate Gunnar Waldt earned his second straight All-America honor. Massa graduated as the NCAA’s all-time leader in faceoffs won and ground balls.   Robert Morris junior Jessica Karwacki established a new NCAA women’s lacrosse career mark for draw controls with 537 in just three years. She led the nation in the category for a third straight season. Likewise, Wagner’s Shea Gegan ranked first nationally in both caused turnovers and ground balls.   Sacred Heart completed the rare NEC “Triple Crown,” winning the women’s cross country, indoor and outdoor track and field championships. The Pioneers became the first school since 1997, and just fourth team overall, to win all three titles in the same academic year.   Cementing his status as a future NEC Hall of Fame candidate, Fairleigh Dickinson’s Arvis Berzins became the first four-time NEC Men’s Tennis Player of the Year in conference history. In four years, he compiled a 71-29 singles record and finished 19-2 against NEC competitors.   LIU Brooklyn’s George Williams won the NEC men’s golf championship to qualify for NCAA regional play, where he turned in the best individual performance in NEC history. Williams finished 11th out of 75 competitors at the event with a two-under par 208.   The NEC Hall of Fame announced its fifth Hall of Fame class in January 2014. The threemember group included a pair of former Central Connecticut student-athletes: Corsley Edwards, a men’s basketball player, and Kelly Shimmin, a women’s soccer player. Former Wagner Sports Information Director and NEC Communications Director Bob Balut was posthumously inducted into the Hall of Fame.   To wrap a year filled with #NECPride, former FDU soccer star Alejandro Bedoya competed for the USMNT over the summer at the 2015 Gold Cup while two-time NEC Women’s Soccer Player of the Year Christie Rampone won her second FIFA World Cup competing for Team USA this past July.

On Campus & In The Community The NEC welcomed the class of 2018 to campus last summer as part of its annual outreach 2015 ROBERT MORRIS UNIVERSIT Y FOOTBALL

program designed to raise awareness and develop the league’s growing fan base. Over 8,000 students across the Conference were provided with NEC-logo drawstring bags. Among the contents in the bag were promotional products and coupons donated by a number of the league’s corporate partners and contributing sponsors.   The NEC, its member institutions and studentathletes have made community involvement an important piece of its mission. In 2014-15, the NEC Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) spent time at the Children’s Cancer Recovery Foundation in Harrisburg, Pa., during its annual meeting. The SAAC hand-delivered a $7,532.94 check to the Children’s Cancer Recovery Foundation and also volunteered time to preparing care packages that went to children around the nation. The monetary donation to the Foundation, which assists children under age 18 and their families who are facing the hardships of a cancer diagnosis, was comprised of funds raised from the NEC SAAC’s annual Penny Wars.   For the first time, St. Francis Brooklyn was the recipient of the NEC Building Communities award. The award recognizes the institution which demonstrates the highest dedication to making an impact in the community through the efforts of its student-athletes, coaches and administrators. Over the course of the 2014-15 academic year, Conference members logged nearly 25,000 hours of community service.   Wagner football player Phil Faccone and Robert Morris softball player Nicole Sleith were named the 2014-15 NEC Male and Female Student-Athletes of the Year, respectively. The award recognizes individual excellence in both the academic and athletic realms as well as leadership and contributions to one’s community.

Commitment to Sportsmanship The NEC continued its long-running participation in the NCAA’s Respect Campaign, an effort to promote an environment of respect and integrity at Conference events.   The NEC Team Sportsmanship Award program recognized those teams and student-athletes who adhere to the principles of sportsmanship and pursue victory with honor. The NEC honored 22 teams for their commitment to sportsmanship during the 2014-15 academic year.

The Brenda Weare Commissioner’s Cup The NEC Commissioner’s Cup was instituted during the 1986-87 season with LIU Brooklyn winning the inaugural award. Fairleigh Dickinson leads all current NEC schools with six Cups to its credit. Cup points are awarded in each NEC sponsored sport. For men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s soccer, women’s volleyball, football, women’s bowling, softball, men’s and women’s lacrosse and baseball, the final regular season standings are used to determine Cup points. Starting with the 2012-13 season, the NEC began awarding three bonus points to the NEC Tournament champion in those sports. In all other sports, points are awarded based on the finish at the NEC Championship events.

Head Coach John Banaszak John Banaszak became the second head football coach in Robert Morris University history in December 2013. The 2015 campaign will be his second year at the helm of the program.   In his first season in 2014, Banaszak oversaw a youth movement with the Colonials. A total of 27 different studentathletes earned their first career start throughout the year, including a group of 17 that had never played in a collegiate game prior to the season.   Banaszak served as an assistant coach for the Colonials for 11 years prior to taking over the top spot, including six seasons as assistant head coach from 2008 to 2013. He was selected as coach-in-waiting in January 2012 at a press conference at the Charles L. Sewall Center.   At the end of the 2013 season, not long before Banaszak was set to move into the head role, he was named as the Assistant Coach of the Year at the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) level as selected by the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA). He was one of five coaches selected, each at different levels of college football, for dedication to their teams and communities. He was the first Robert Morris coach, as well as the first from the Northeast Conference (NEC), to claim this honor.   Among his numerous duties with the program as an assistant coach, Banaszak was responsible for tutoring the defensive line and the special teams unit.   Under Banaszak’s guidance in 2013, Robert Morris led the NEC in net punting, punt return defense and punt return average while also placing second in the league in kickoff coverage. The Colonials ranked fourth nationally in punt returns as Banaszak guided Antwan Eddie (201114) to a single-season school record 405 punt return yards.   Banaszak was also a key component in instructing a RMU defense that finished second in the NEC in total defense within league play. Robert Morris finished its regular season ranked among the top 25 nationally in a number of defensive

categories, including third-down defense, first downs allowed, passing defense, red zone defense, passing efficiency defense, turnovers gained and total defense. He helped A.J. Holderman, a former fullback, enjoy a breakout campaign that saw him finish with 14.5 tackles for loss, the third-highest figure in RMU single-season annals.   With Banaszak’s assistance, RMU has led the NEC in total defense four times in the 10 years (2004, 2006, 2009, 2010) and ranked among the top four nine times in 11 seasons.   Banaszak was a key component to a 2010 defense that led the NEC in total defense, allowing an average of 312.6 yards per game, and coaching a defensive line that recorded 13 of RMU’s 21 sacks as the Colonials claimed the NEC’s inaugural berth in the NCAA FCS Playoffs.   In 2006, Banaszak helped tutor an RMU defense that led I-AA (now the Football Championship Subdivision) in total defense, allowing an average of just 228.36 yards per game.   A total of 10 of the 13 players in school history to earn All-NEC recognition on the defensive line have come under the tutelage of Banaszak, including Nolan Nearhoof (2009-12), who was named the

2015 ROBERT MORRIS UNIVERSIT Y FOOTBALL

22

2012 NEC Defensive Player of the Year after breaking both the school and league records for career sacks.   Nearhoof would go on to earn AllAmerica honors courtesy of The Sports Network, becoming the third Colonial defensive lineman to claim an All-America nod under Banaszak in a seven-year span.   Under Banaszak’s guidance, former defensive lineman Ray Gensler (200306) tied the RMU single-season school record for sacks with 11 in 2006 en route to earning All-NEC First Team honors. Gensler also established a career record in sacks with 19 thanks to 11 in 2006 prior to Nearhoof breaking the mark, and the Robert Morris defensive line that season recorded 28½ of RMU’s school record 34 sacks.   Former defensive linemen Jason Forrest (2002-05) and Mark Szymanski (200710) earned multiple All-NEC honors with the guidance of Banaszak, as Forrest was a three-time All-NEC selection and Szymanski garnered All-NEC accolades twice.   In addition, also earning All-NEC honors on the defensive line with the help of Banaszak were Will Weathers (2003), Babafemi Odumeru (2004), Matt Brunck (2006), Colyn Haugh (2006) and Forrest Mason (2013, 2014).   As much as Banaszak’s presence has been felt on the defensive side of the ball, the same can be said on special teams. Eddie became the fifth different Colonial to win an award at return specialist in a decade’s time. Under Banaszak’s leadership, former Colonials Dante Settles (2000-04), Tyjuan Massey (2002-05), Mario Hines (2004-07) and Anthony Coleman (2008-11) garnered All-NEC honors at return specialist, the first players in RMU history to earn such a distinction.   Banaszak helped Coleman establish Robert Morris career records for kickoff returns (110) and kickoff return yards (2,422), while Hines owns Robert Morris single-game records for kickoff (165) and punt (112) return yards as well as the


Colonial single-season mark for average punt return (16.29 yards). Banaszak has also tutored the only three Colonials, Settles, Hines and Eddie, to return a punt for a touchdown.   Former punter Nick Schirztinger (2007-10) thrived under the tutelage of Banaszak, as he finished his career as arguably RMU’s greatest punter ever. Schirtzinger, a two-time All-NEC selection, owned school career records for punts (230), punting yards (9,290) and average yards per punt (40.4) when he completed his career.   Former punter Tony LaMancusa (2011-14) also performed well in punting under Banaszak as he earned his first All-NEC nod in 2013. True freshman Connor Shennan also contributed in his first season on special teams in 2013, as his 61.8 average on kickoffs and 15 touchbacks helped the Colonials lead the league in both of those categories.   Prior to RMU, Banaszak served as the 30th head coach in Washington & Jefferson football history, leading the Presidents to a record of 38-9 (.809) in his four seasons on the sidelines between 1999 and 2002. In each of those four campaigns, he was named the Presidents’ Athletic Conference Coach of the Year and ranks third on the college’s

all-time victory list.   A graduate of Eastern Michigan with a bachelor’s degree in health, physical education and recreation, Banaszak signed as a free agent with the Pittsburgh Steelers prior to the 1975 season and was one of only three rookies to make the defending Super Bowl champion team out

of training camp.   Primarily a special teams player on Pittsburgh’s Super Bowl X championship team, Banaszak started five games the following season and then started at both right end and inside tackle in 1977 before suffering a knee injury that forced him to the injured reserve list.   Between 1978 and 1980, Banaszak started 45 regular-season games at defensive end as the Steelers won backto-back Super Bowl championships. In Super Bowl XIII, Banaszak recorded six tackles, including a pair of sacks, and a fumble recovery in a 35-31 victory over the Dallas Cowboys, which garnered him Defensive Player of the Game honors. The following year in Super Bowl XIV, Banaszak finished with five tackles and a sack in a 31-19 victory over the Los Angeles Rams.   Upon completion of his stint with the Steelers, Banaszak spent the 1983 and 1984 seasons with the Michigan Panthers of the USFL. He then moved on to serve as a player/coach with the Memphis Showboats, also of the USFL, in 1985. While with the Showboats, Banaszak mentored former NFL standout Reggie White.   Banaszak and his wife, Mary, have three children. They reside in McMurray, Pa.

In September of his 2014, Farison was also tabbed assistant head coach. Under Farison’s tutelage, the Colonials have finished among the top 25 nationally in total defense a total of six times, including finishing among the top 11 on four occasions. In addition, Farison has been directly responsible for helping four Colonials earn NEC Defensive Player of the Year accolades. A native of Marion, Ohio, Farison, the longest tenured coach on the staff, is a 2001 graduate of Mercyhurst University, where for three years he played quarterback for the Lakers after transferring from Arizona State in 1998. Farison holds the Mercyhurst career record for total offense gained per play (6.17). The 2015 campaign marks the second season for Darrin Hicks as an assistant at Robert Morris, and he serves as the program’s offensive coordinator. A native of Weirton, W. Va., Hicks brought 17 years of collegiate coaching experience to the Colonials, including 10 as an offensive coordinator. As an assistant coach with Delta State University from 2007 to 2009, Hicks twice helped lead the Statesmen to the Division II playoffs. Hicks began his coaching career at Emporia State University from 1996 to 1998 and has also had coaching stops at California Lutheran (1999-2001), Washington & Jefferson (2002), Texas State (2003),

Si-Tanka Huron (2004), the United States Merchant Marine Academy (2005), North Carolina Wesleyan (2010-12) and St. Augustine’s (2013). In his ninth season as an assistant coach for Robert Morris is Andrew Richardson, who is responsible for coaching the offensive line. In the spring of 2014, Richardson was named the program’s recruiting coordinator. Richardson joined the RMU coaching staff full time in January of 2009 after spending the 2007 and 2008 seasons as a graduate assistant coach. A 2005 graduate of Penn State University and a native of Pittsburgh, Pa., Richardson was a four-year letterwinner for the Nittany Lions at offensive tackle. In 2005, Richardson started the final seven games at right tackle for a Penn State club that finished 11-1 and garnered a 26-23 triple overtime victory over Florida State in the 2006 FedEx Orange Bowl. The 2015 campaign marks the seventh season for Bill Hurley as an assistant coach at Robert Morris. A 1980 graduate of Syracuse and a native of Kenmore, N.Y., Hurley coaches the RMU secondary. Hurley spent four seasons as defensive backs coach at Duquesne from 2004-07 prior to joining the Robert Morris staff. Hurley was a four-year starter at quarterback for Syracuse, establishing 23 school records and being honored as the 1979 ECAC Offensive Player of the Year.

In his seventh season with the RMU coaching staff in 2015 is Patrick Shepard, who coaches the receivers and tight ends. In 2014, Shepard helped guide former wide receiver Duane Mitchell (2011-14) to a record-breaking season with a school record for catches with 54. He also helped Nic Lamica transition to receiver in the middle of the year. Shepard also coached former tight end Shadrae King (2008-11), who concluded his career as the program’s all-time leader in receptions with 145. A native of Pittsburgh, Pa., Shepard spent two seasons at Robert Morris as a graduate assistant coach, earning a Master of Science degree in communications and information systems. Shepard was a three-year letterwinner at Miami (Ohio) University, appearing in 37 games as a tight end with the Red Hawks. In his fourth season at Robert Morris as an assistant coach is Myles Russ, who is responsible for tutoring the RMU running backs. One of the most decorated players in school history, the Boca Raton, Fla., native finished his career as the program’s all-time leading rusher by compiling 4,271 yards from 2007 to 2010. Named the 2010 Northeast Conference Offensive Player of the Year after helping lead the Colonials to a share of the regular-season championship and the league’s inaugural berth in the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) Playoffs, Russ also owns the Robert Morris career school record for all-purpose yards (4,651).


In his second season with the Colonials in 2015 is Cornelius Coleman, who is responsible for coaching the defensive line. A native of Washington, D.C., Coleman spent seven years as a member of the Averett University coaching staff from 2007 to 2013 prior to joining the RMU staff, including assistant head coach and recruiting coordinator. Coleman was a four-year letterwinner at defensive end for Waynesburg from 1996 to 1999, earning All-Presidents’ Athletic Conference First Team honors after his senior season. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in communication from Waynesburg and also owns a Master of Business Administration from Waynesburg (2003), a Master of Science degree in sport management from RMU (2006) and a Doctorate of Education in educational leadership from Argosy University (2014).

Also in his second season as a member of the RMU coaching staff is Nick McVay. After working with H-backs and tight ends in 2014, McVay will coach the receivers in 2015. He spent the 2013 campaign with Robert Morris as an intern. Prior to RMU, McVay served as a student assistant coach at Otterbein in 2012, working primarily with the receivers. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in health and physical education from Otterbein in 2013 and was a three-year letterwinner in football and a two-year letterwinner in lacrosse.

Today’s Game Notre Dame (1-1) vs. Robert Morris (0-2)

Robert Morris Defense

Saturday, September 19, 2015 at Noon Joe Walton Stadium (3,000) - Moon Township, Pa. Radio: 970 ESPN (Chris Shovlin - play-by-play & Brian Cleary - color) Video: www.RMUColonials.com The Robert Morris University football team returns home to Joe Walton Stadium this afternoon to host Notre Dame College of Ohio as part of its annual Homecoming festivities. The meeting marks the first in the all-time series between the two programs.   The Colonials enter today’s game against the Falcons coming off a 21-14 overtime loss @ No. 17 Youngstown State (9/12). The Penguins were able to take their first lead of the contest on their first possession in the extra period, as Hunter Wells connected with I’Tavious Harvin for a two-yard touchdown pass on fourth down. The YSU defense held firm on RMU’s final possession, as freshman quarterback Mathew Barr was sacked on the final play of the game to give the Penguins the win.   Playing in a steady rain the entire game, the Robert Morris defense held a Youngstown State offense in check just a week after it scored 37 points and accumulated over 400 yards of total offense against Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) foe Pittsburgh. Redshirt senior linebacker Mike Stojkovic led the defensive effort by compiling 11 tackles, including one and-a-half tackles for loss, while forcing a fumble and recording a pass breakup. For his efforts, Stojkovic was selected as the Northeast Conference (NEC) Defensive Player of the Week.   The honor for Stojkovic marks the second time in as many weeks to open the year a student-athlete from Robert Morris was bestowed the NEC’s weekly defensive honor. Sophomore defensive back Ryan Richards, Jr., earned the award after the first week of action thanks to a pair of interceptions and six tackles in RMU’s season opener against Dayton (9/5).   Richards, Jr., chipped in eight tackles for the Colonials against Youngstown State, while sophomore defensive back Drew Allen contributed seven stops, tying a career high. Also recording seven tackles for RMU against the Penguins was junior weak safety Andy Smigiera.

When the Falcons have the ball …

  On offense against Youngstown State, sophomore running back Rameses Owens rushed for 152 yards and a pair of touchdowns, including a 41-yard touchdown scamper on RMU’s first play from scrimmage that gave the Colonials an early 7-0 lead. The score marked the longest rush for Owens in his career. He also added a 10-yard touchdown run with 13:25 to play that gave Robert Morris a 14-7 advantage. Through the first two games of the 2015 campaign, Owens has rushed for 224 yards on 58 attempts, an average of 3.9 yards per carry.   Barr finished 2-for-11 passing for 16 yards and an interception against Youngstown State, but his 13-yard completion to redshirt sophomore Jordan Blackmon in overtime helped keep the chains moving for Robert Morris. Through the first two games of the season, Barr has completed 16 of his 45 passing attempts for 172 yards and a touchdown.   Notre Dame is coming off a 42-0 victory over Virginia-Wise (9/12) and owns an overall record of 1-1. The win over the Cavaliers marked the first shutout in program history. The Notre Dame football program was instituted in 2009 and became a charter member of the Mountain East Conference (MEC) in 2013.

RMU Insider — Levine Building “Surreal” Career As Pro Goalie — Moon Township, Pa. – Ilya Bryzgalov saved Eric Levine’s pro hockey career.   At least that’s the conclusion the former Robert Morris University standout goalie has drawn after coming this close to calling it quits last winter.   But to make sense of how Bryzgalov’s sudden decision to retire gave Levine just the opportunity he was looking for, we have to rewind a bit.   Since graduating from RMU with his psychology degree in 2013, the 26-yearold Levine has dressed for eight pro hockey teams, from the Peoria Rivermen of the Southern Professional Hockey League to the ECHL’s Utah Grizzlies, where he will start the 2015-16 season with a contract. His itinerant path around the minor leagues seems crazy on first glance, but it’s not all that rare.   “Being a minor-league goalie is, in one word, brutal,” Levine says. “If we’re speaking honestly, goalies that are undrafted and unsigned to an NHL contract, like myself, are extremely replaceable and teams are less than loyal to us.   “It’s a lot of call-ups, a lot of being released, a lot of packing and unpacking your life going from city to city, and a lot of just waiting on the bench for your chance to play.”   Despite not being categorized as an NHL prospect, Levine still found a pretty good situation in Peoria, which is about a three-hour drive from his Chicagoland hometown of Wheeling, Illinois. In his rookie year of 2013-14, Levine had a .912 save percentage in 23 games for the Rivermen, even as he sought chances to play at higher levels than the ‘Single-A’ SPHL.   Over the past two seasons, that ambition led to loan stints with the Allen Americans of the now-defunct Central Hockey League, the Indy Fuel and Fort Wayne Komets of the ECHL, and even the Syracuse Crunch of the American Hockey League, the top development league of the NHL.

  “There are only two goalies per team,” Levine says. “That leaves guys like me having to fight a lot harder to get a shot at the ECHL level than a forward or defenseman. We don’t get many chances to make our presence felt. The lesson I learned is to take every single game with the mindset that you are playing to earn your next start, your next paycheck.”   Ironically, Levine’s willingness to seize an opening, no matter how small, almost led to the end of his playing career.   Twice last season, he accepted call-ups to ECHL teams (Alaska and Utah) with promises of playing time, only to ride the pine on both occasions. When he returned to Peoria from his first fruitless gig, the Rivermen released him because they wanted a goalie who would stick around.   After getting snubbed in Utah a week later, Levine was ready to move on and focus on running the Midwest Goalie

School, a company he purchased last summer.   But, in late February, the Anaheim Ducks announced that Bryzgalov, instead of accepting a demotion to the AHL’s Norfolk Admirals, would call it a career after 12 NHL seasons. That meant the Admirals needed to keep the goalie they recently summoned from Utah, leaving a roster spot open out west. Grizzlies head coach Tim Branham called Levine and -- after apologizing for not playing him earlier -- offered another look.   “He said I’d get my shot to play,” Levine says. “He followed up on his word.”   Levine went 3-0 with a .922 save percentage to close the regular season, then did just as well (.923 SV%, 1.92 goals-against average) in the playoffs to earn the chance to start the new season in the ECHL. Between the insight he gains while teaching young goaltenders and his constant search for that extra edge, Levine is confident that his third pro season will be his best.   “In the offseason you try to make those changes and discover more about your body and what it needs to stay healthy, which, as a goalie, is of the highest importance,” he says. “I like to do a lot of skating and (puck) tracking drills. Ironically, the higher level of hockey I play, the simpler my game needs to be. At my level, it’s about doing the really little, boring details well.”   Levine noted that his fitness routine includes both strength and flexibility work, with challenging hot yoga sessions aiding in focus and body maintenance. The ubiquitous butterfly style has revolutionized goaltending over the past two decades, but it can be devastating to the hips in particular.   “All these years of butterfly have not been kind to my body,” Levine says. “I was actually starting to get a little worried that I couldn’t maintain the rigors of another season in net, but after doing three months of hot yoga three or


four times a week, my body has never felt better.”   As would be expected from a psychology major, Levine considers the mental side of the game often. A former catcher from his baseball-playing days, Levine said there’s something about being at the center of the action that calms his usually hyperactive mind.   “As the saying goes, ‘In the crease, there is nowhere to hide, only to escape,’” he says. “When I put the pads on, I become a different person. In my normal day-to-day life, I’m very talkative, sometimes scattered, very on-the-go, always doing or thinking about something.   “But in the crease, I am overwhelmed with this sense of calm and composure I can’t find anywhere else. I enjoy it so much because of the responsibility the position evokes in you. You are tested on a mental level that is unparalleled in sports.”   Levine’s comfort in the blue paint was evident throughout his four-year stay at RMU, but especially during his senior year. The 6-foot-3, 180-pounder backstopped the Colonials to a then-program-record 20-win season, putting up a .929 save percentage in 35 games. Two of his 19 wins occurred at the inaugural Three Rivers Classic, where he was named tournament MVP after stopping all 99 shots he faced at CONSOL Energy Center.   His performance in the championship game is particularly indelible, as he made 51 saves in a 1-0 shutout of No. 5 Miami. To hear Levine tell it, though, he almost had to sit out the tourney because of a stomach bug.

  “I will never forget how terribly sick I was,” he says. “I might have eaten a half-bag of Cheerios that whole weekend. I missed both morning skates because I was home throwing up, and I’m pretty sure (then freshman) Terry Shafer had to tie my skates before the game because I had no strength in my hands to get them as tight as I like.   “But once I stepped on the ice … wow, what an atmosphere. I can still remember being in the crease for our first game against Penn State when (Jeff Jimerson) was singing the anthem. I was so overwhelmed with emotions. It was surreal skating to my net and thinking of all the great NHL goalies who had tended the same net. It was this weird connection I felt with the ‘goalie spirits.’ I don’t even know how to describe it, but I loved every second of it.”   As it turned out, Levine was able to channel those feelings into two nights of otherworldly goaltending, giving the Colonials a milestone victory in a big-time venue.   “I looked around the rink and I thought, ‘I will play here one day as an NHL goalie, and this weekend, I will play like I am one,’” Levine says. “Fortunately something in my body listened to my brain. Just to be a part of that last game, to see our entire team battle as hard as they did, I was so happy we won.   “Having Adam Brace jump into my arms, the entire team rushing off the bench, to be in the middle of all that ... that’s something I’ll take to my grave.”   Levine’s RMU memories aren’t limited 2015 ROBERT MORRIS UNIVERSIT Y FOOTBALL

to the ice. He served as president of the psychology honor society Psi Chi, taking the lead on some “cool projects” in the department during his junior and senior years. In particular, Levine speaks highly of his former professor and advisor, Dr. Stephen Paul, for helping him expand his worldview.   “He taught me a lot of things I still think about now,” Levine says. “What it means to be truly open-minded, or why it’s important to not succumb to thought that is based on a prejudice somebody has.”   Having an open mind can help one embrace the quirks and uncertainties of a career in pro sports, something Levine has learned during two wildly unpredictable years in minor-league hockey. He says his ultimate goal is to work for an NHL team as a goalie coach or professional scout, but in the meantime he’ll continue spreading his knowledge through youth camps and private lessons.   If hockey doesn’t work out, Levine mentions the possibility of fully embracing his newfound affinity for yoga and becoming an instructor. Hearing the matter-of-fact way he describes his current profession, some of that Eastern-style serenity has already made an impact.   “What’s it like being a pro goalie?” Levine quips. “Surreal. Minor-league goalies are like weather in Chicago. Always changing, very unpredictable, and most times nobody likes you.   “But my God, do I love it.”

NEC Offensive Player of the Week

Ose Imekparia, Sacred Heart Jr., RB, 5-10, 180, New Castle, Del. / Northfield Mount Hermon Imeokparia powered Sacred Heart’s offensive explosion at Valparaiso, as the junior running back totaled a game-high 173 yards from scrimmage in just over two quarters of action. In a game that Sacred Heart led 35-0 at halftime, Imeokparia rushed 19 times for 119 yards and three touchdowns and added 54 yards on four receptions. The 5-foot-10, 180-pound ball carrier staked Sacred Heart to a 14-0 advantage on first-quarter touchdown runs of five and two yards, respectively. Imeokparia made seven plays of 12 yards or more with five going for at least 15 yards. NEC Defensive Player of the Week

Mike Stojkovic, Robert Morris R-Sr., LB, 6-3, 240, Katy, Texas / North Texas Stojkovic spearheaded a gutsy defensive effort that nearly led to an upset of nationally-ranked Youngstown State. Going up against a YSU offense that scored 37 points and accumulated over 400 yards of total offense against ACC member Pittsburgh in Week 1, Stojkovic made seven stops that limited the ball carrier to three yards or fewer. The veteran linebacker totaled 11 tackles, including one and-ahalf hits for a loss, one forced fumble and one pass break-up. He set the tone for a strong defensive effort on Youngstown’s second play from scrimmage, forcing a fumble that gave RMU its first drive start at the YSU 41-yard line. NEC Special Teams Player of the Week

Lorenzo Jerome, Saint Francis Jr., DB/KR, 5-11, 185, Sunrise, Fla. / J.P. Taravella Jerome’s kick return prowess accounted for Saint Francis’ first touchdown at CAA member Towson. After the host Tigers grabbed a 7-0 advantage on a two-yard run late in the first quarter, Jerome took the ensuing kickoff 99 yards to even the score. The 99-yard return for a touchdown by Jerome stands as the longest in program history, surpassing Desmond Ray’s 94-yard return against La Salle in 2001. It was the highlight of a productive day for Jerome in the return game. He ran back the game’s opening kickoff 34 yards to the SFU 40-yard line and averaged 45.3 yards per return. NEC Rookie of the Week

P.J. Fulmore, Duquesne Fr., RB, 5-7, 197, Pittsburgh, Pa. / North Catholic Fulmore enjoyed success running the football for the second consecutive week. Contesting his first road game as a collegian, the freshman averaged 7.9 yards per carry during Duquesne’s 26-7 triumph over Patriot League member Bucknell. Fulmore totaled a game-high 87 yards on 11 carries against a defense that limited its Week 1 opponent to only 21 rush yards. The rookie running back rushed for four first downs against the Bison, who finished the 2014 season as the nation’s 11th-best run defense.

The Tim Hall Memorial Scholarship Tim Hall came to Robert Morris University as an unheralded player. Yet from the inaugural 1994 season until being drafted by the Oakland Raiders in the sixth round of the 1996 NFL Draft, Hall entered his name beside virtually every Robert Morris rushing record, some of which still stand today.   In addition to his football skills, Hall was admired and respected by all those who came in contact with him. Tragically, in 1998, Hall was shot and killed in his home of Kansas City. In 2001, friends of Tim Hall established a scholarship in his honor. Each year gifts put toward this scholarship will result in an award to a minority running back at Robert Morris.   The Tim Hall Memorial Scholarship Fund is awarded to a minority football studentathlete who plays the running back position. The award can be renewed each year for four years, or until the student graduates, whichever comes first, as long as the following criteria are maintained. The RMU football coaching staff will determine the recipient of the award.

Criteria

• The awardee must continue to be a member of the Robert Morris football team • The awardee must maintain a minimum 2.50 grade point average • The awardee must maintain good standing with the football team and University • The awardee must demonstrate financial need In the summer of 2011, the inaugural Tim Hall Scholarship was awarded to redshirt senior running back Jamar Cromwell. The second student-athlete to earn the Tim Hall Scholarship was fullback Ryan Thermil, who was bestowed the honor for three seasons from 2012 to 2014. If you would like to contribute to the Tim Hall Memorial Scholarship Fund, please complete the form below and return it to: Robert Morris University Football Office, Joe Walton Stadium 6001 University Boulevard Moon Township, PA 15108-1189

Robert Morris Athletic Hall of Fame The Robert Morris University Athletic Hall of Fame was established in 1991 to honor those who have made an outstanding contribution to Robert Morris athletics. Nominations are solicited and individuals selected by the Hall of Fame Committee. Players, coaches and administrators are eligible for selection five years after they have concluded their career at Robert Morris, and a veteran’s choice is also considered for induction. A veteran’s choice is an individual that has concluded their career for at least 20 years.   The Robert Morris football program has had 11 former student-athletes inducted into the RMU Athletic Hall of Fame, while former head coach Joe Walton (1994-2013) was enshrined at the inaugural RMU Athletic Hall of Fame Dinner. Former assistant head coach and defensive coordinator Dan Radakovich is a member of the RMU Athletic Hall of Fame Class of 2015.   To read and learn more about any of the former student-athletes, coaches or administrators in the RMU Athletic Hall of Fame, or if you would like to nominate a former student-athlete, coach or administrator, please visit the official website of Colonial athletics at www.RMUColonials.com.

2015 ROBERT MORRIS UNIVERSIT Y FOOTBALL

76


Joe Walton Class of 2013 • Robert Morris Athletic Hall of Fame The 23rd annual class of inductees into the Robert Morris University Athletic Hall of Fame featured just one individual, as former head coach Joe Walton served as the Class of 2013.   The first head coach of the program, Walton spent 20 seasons on the sidelines at RMU from 1994 to 2013.   In 20 years guiding the Colonials, Walton compiled an overall record of 114-92-1 (.553), including a mark of 73-47 (.608) in the Northeast Conference. Included in that 18-year stretch against league foes were six NEC regular-season championships (1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000 and 2010).   The one constant associated with the program for the first 20 years, Walton was named the first head coach July 27, 1993. He started the program from scratch, completing everything from hiring assistants to purchasing equipment to recruiting student-athletes for the program’s inaugural season in 1994. His fingerprints are all over the program, and to prove that, Robert Morris has played its home games since 2005 in a stadium that bears his name.   Under Walton’s tutelage, the Colonials claimed outright NEC regular-season titles three times (1997, 1999, 2000) while sharing three others (1996, 1998, 2010). Walton led RMU to back-toback ECAC Bowl victories in 1996 and

1997, and in 1999 and 2000 he guided Robert Morris to a pair of NCAA I-AA mid-major national crowns according to Don Hansen’s National Weekly Football Gazette.   In 2010, Walton secured his legacy by engineering the Colonials on an eight-game winning streak for a share of the NEC regular-season title and the NEC’s inaugural bid in the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) Playoffs. In the process he picked up his 100th career victory in the collegiate ranks.   During his tenure Walton has also

helped a fledgling program send a pair of its brightest stars to the National Football League (NFL). Inaugural running back Tim Hall (1994-95) was drafted by the Oakland Raiders in the sixth round (183rd player overall) of the 1996 NFL Draft, while former offensive lineman Hank Fraley (1996-99) spent 10 years in the NFL with the Philadelphia Eagles, the Cleveland Browns and the St. Louis Rams.   Also to see time in NFL camps from Robert Morris under Walton include wide receiver DeLonte Perkins (Green Bay Packers), quarterback Tim Levcik (Miami Dolphins, Pittsburgh Steelers), defensive back Robb Butler (San Diego Chargers, Baltimore Ravens, Kansas City Chiefs) and offensive lineman A.J. Dalton (Detroit Lions).   Walton became just the second inductee ever to be active at Robert Morris at the time of enshrinement, joining 2012 RMU Athletic Hall of Fame honoree Chris Shovlin, RMU’s radio playby-play announcer for football and men’s basketball who enters his 29th season behind the microphone in 2015-16.   Walton was inducted Friday, Nov. 15, 2013, at the inaugural RMU Athletic Hall of Fame Dinner, which took place at the Marriott Pittsburgh Airport. The emcee of the event was former Washington Redskins quarterback Joe Theismann.

Dan Radakovich Class of 2015 • Robert Morris Athletic Hall of Fame When Joe Walton was named the inaugural head coach of the Robert Morris football program in July of 1993, it didn’t take long for him to find the man that would help him build the program.   Dan Radakovich was Walton’s first hire, being named defensive coordinator August 30, 1993. Radakovich helped the Colonials go 7-1-1 in their inaugural season in 1994, then left to serve as the offensive line coach for the St. Louis Rams of the National Football League (NFL) during the 1995 season.   However, the partnership didn’t end, as Radakovich returned to Robert Morris in 1996, this time being elevated to assistant head coach. After 13 years at Robert Morris, and 48 years overall in the coaching profession, Radakovich retired June 30, 2008.   “Dan, as much as anybody, is responsible for the building of the Robert Morris football program,” Walton said at his retirement ceremony April 24, 2008. “Any success we’ve had goes equally to him. He’s the best on-the-field coach I’ve ever seen.”   Radakovich was voted into the RMU Athletic Hall of Fame as part of the Class

of 2015 and will be enshrined at the third annual RMU Athletic Hall of Fame dinner, which takes place Friday, Feb. 5, 2016, at the Sheraton Pittsburgh Airport.   Radakovich, known as the true patriarch of “Linebacker U” at alma mater Penn State, left his undeniable mark at the position for Robert Morris. Nine of the top 15 names, including each of the top

2015 ROBERT MORRIS UNIVERSIT Y FOOTBALL

79

four, in career tackles at Robert Morris are linebackers.   As well as coaching at RMU for 13 years, Radakovich also coached at Penn State (1957-69), Cincinnati (1970), Colorado (1972-73) and North Carolina State (1982). In the NFL, he’s been with the St. Louis Rams (1995), Cleveland Browns (1989-90), the New York Jets under Walton (1985-88), Minnesota Vikings (1984), Denver Broncos (1983), Los Angeles Rams (1979-81), San Francisco 49ers (1978) and the Pittsburgh Steelers (1971, 1974-77).   In 1994, Radakovich’s defense at Robert Morris forced 34 turnovers, enabling the Colonials to lead all of Division I with a +17 turnover ratio. The 1996 RMU defense shut out three straight opponents to open the season, while in 1999 Robert Morris ranked sixth in the country by yielding just 15.6 points per game.   Radakovich led a Robert Morris defense in 2006 that led I-AA (now FCS) in total defense by allowing an average of 228.36 yards per game, ranking second in all of Division I behind only Virginia Tech (219.46 ypg).

Academic Success The Robert Morris University Department of Intercollegiate Athletics is not all about winning on the field, court or ice.   Success in the classroom through academics is as much a triumph as the athletic competitions themselves. Robert Morris University is committed to the total development of its student-athletes.   The 2014-15 academic year followed the trend set before it as student-athletes that competed in 16 sports combined to post a 3.250 grade point average (GPA) during the 2014-15 academic year.   A pair of teams from Robert Morris were recognized by the Northeast Conference for compiling the best GPA in its respective sport. The volleyball team posted a 3.528 GPA in 2014-15, the fourth consecutive year the Colonials have posted the highest team GPA in the NEC, while the men’s soccer team finished with a league-high 3.191 team GPA.   The men’s ice hockey team registered the highest team GPA of any program at Robert Morris in 2014-15, finishing at 3.624. It marked the fourth consecutive year the Colonials led the Atlantic Hockey Conference (AHC) in team GPA.   In 2014-15, a total of 75 Colonials were named to the 2014 NEC Fall Academic Honor Roll, 35 to the 2015 NEC Winter Academic Honor Roll and 77 to the 2015 NEC Spring Academic Honor Roll.   To be eligible for an NEC Academic Honor Roll, a student-athlete that participates in a sport must own a cumulative grade point average of 3.20 or better. Likewise, to be named to an NEC Commissioner’s Honor Roll, the student-athlete must have compiled a cumulative GPA of 3.75 or better.   For Robert Morris in 2014-15, 25 studentathletes were named to the 2014 NEC Fall Commissioner’s Honor Roll, 14 to the 2015 NEC Winter Commissioner’s Honor Roll and 23 to the 2015 NEC Spring Commissioner’s Honor Roll.   In addition in 2014-15, 21 student-athletes from the RMU women’s ice hockey team were named to the 2015 College Hockey America (CHA) All-Academic Team, while 25 Colonials from the Robert Morris men’s ice hockey squad were tabbed to 2015 AHC All-Academic Team.   The Metro Atlantic Athletic Association (MAAC) also named 18 student-athletes from RMU to its 2015 Women’s Rowing AllAcademic Team, while a total of 24 Colonials from the rowing squad were tabbed to the 2015 MAAC Academic Honor Roll.

  Overall, nearly 70 percent of RMU’s 450+ student-athletes posted a 3.00 or higher GPA in 2014-15.   The NEC also honored a trio of RMU’s student-athletes with the NEC Scholar-Athlete of the Year in their respective sport during the 2014-15 academic year. Nick Faraci garnered the honor for football, while Ryan Prokay and Nicole Sleith were bestowed the honor for men’s golf and softball, respectively.   Katelyn Scott of the women’s ice hockey team became the first four-time recipient of the CHA Student-Athlete of the Year in 2015, as she compiled a perfect 4.00 GPA both during the 2014-15 academic year and throughout her four years in the classroom as an engineering major.

  David Rigatti of the men’s ice hockey team, meanwhile, was one of eight individuals from across the AHC to be honored as the 201415 AHC Student-Athlete of the Year. A biology major, Rigatti finished with a 4.00 GPA during the 2014-15 academic year.   Additionally in 2014-15, Robert Morris had three student-athletes named to their respective Capital One District II Academic All-America Teams by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA). Faraci and Duane Mitchell earned the honor for football, while Sleith garnered the award for softball. Faraci went on to earn Capital One Academic All-America Second Team status.   RMU’s exploits in the classroom in 201415 should come as no surprise. Since 1988, a total of 27 Robert Morris student-athletes have been named the NEC Scholar-Athlete of the Year in their respective sports a total of 36 occasions.   The Robert Morris football and softball programs have each had five student-athletes named the NEC Scholar-Athlete of the Year since 1988, which is tops among RMU’s 16 intercollegiate programs.   Robert Morris has also placed 54 studentathletes on Capital One District II Academic All-America Teams since 1992, including 23 individuals that were honored in consecutive years.   Football has led the way with 17 studentathletes named to the Capital One District

II Academic All-America Team, followed by softball with 12 honorees and volleyball with six. CoSIDA’s District II covers Delaware, the District of Columbia, Kentucky, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.   A total of four former Robert Morris studentathletes also garnered the honor of being named the NEC Scholar-Athletes of the Year in the first nine years the award has been distributed. Sponsored by the league’s faculty athletic representatives, the award is bestowed annually upon the NEC male and female student-athlete who has exhausted his or her eligibility, graduated and has posted the highest cumulative grade point average at the conclusion of the academic year.   In June of 2014, Travis Denny of the men’s tennis program was the first male studentathlete from Robert Morris honored with the award after compiling a 3.93 GPA in earning a Bachelor of Science degree in biology. Denny joined former Colonials Lisa Jaszka (2007), Tara Maxwell (2009) and Una Japudnza (2013) as a winner of the award.   Jaszka was the inaugural winner of the accolade, earning the honor in 2007 for posting a perfect 4.00 GPA as an elementary education major throughout her four years on the volleyball team at Robert Morris.   Maxwell, who competed for the Robert Morris women’s track & field team, earned the honor in July of 2009 after compiling a 3.99 grade point average as a manufacturing engineering major throughout her four years at RMU. Maxwell was one of three NEC female student-athletes to earn the award in 2009, joining Kathleen Henry of the Sacred Heart cross country program and Erin Reifsteck of the Saint Francis U. field hockey team.   Japundza, a former RMU volleyball studentathlete, was honored in 2013 after compiling a 4.00 GPA as a management major throughout her tenure at RMU. Japundza shared the honor with Carly Thibault of the Monmouth women’s basketball squad.   The reason for RMU’s success in the classroom is simple. Student-athletes receive the very best support when it comes to their academic curriculum. Evening study halls are monitored by the department’s student services personnel, and academic counseling is available from both the athletic department and the University’s enrollment management office.   Graduation is the goal, and Robert Morris University strives to ensure its student-athletes achieve that objective.
