2008 Hardrocker Football Media Guide


2008 SEASON PREVIEW By Brad Blume Sports Information Director South Dakota School of Mines

RAPID CITY — The South Dakota School of Mines football program has taken a new approach concerning the 2008 campaign. Instead of setting a long list of obtainable goals for the season, the Hardrockers have simplified their approach — “take it one day at a time.” “Our goal this year is to focus on today, and that’s a day-by-day issue,” said fourth-year Hardrocker head coach Dan Kratzer. “If we can do that and become better every day then the sky is the limit for the potential of this football team. That’s the most important thing for us.” Kratzer added that there are still goals out there that the team wants to get — like posting a winning record, competing in the upper half of the conference and being in the hunt for a Dakota Athletic Conference title. But those things will come in time. Last season the Hardrockers finished the year with a 3-7 overall record while posting a 1-6 mark in the DAC. The 2007 campaign could just as easily been 5-5 if a couple of plays would have had different outcomes, but that’s football. SD Mines did accomplish some good things last year and hope to use that as a stepping stone to make 2008 even better. “We think this football team is better right now then our

one last year at this time. And I am not taking anything away from last year’s team, we are just in a better position this time around,” Kratzer said. “The one thing we want to be able to do this year is keep the defense off the field and score points. We feel like we are on the right track to get that done.” The Hardrockers had to say farewell to five seniors — Lukas Munsell (WR.RB), Charlie Hankins (DL), Mike DeStigter (DL), Antony Rud (DB) and Steve Perez (WR). Those five seniors con-

South Dakota School of Mines

tributed a lot to the ‘Rocker program the past five years. “(Hankins and DeStigter) were defensive guys that spent a lot of time on the field. Charlie was a three- or four-year starter and DeStigter played off-and-on for all four of his years here. Rud was a guy in the secondary that came on and did a real good job in his senior year and also played well on special teams,” Kratzer said. “Perez played on both sides of the ball. He played some in the secondary one year but was primarily a receiver. He was a spot player and real dependable guy. And we would have had about 50 percent (less) of the offense if we wouldn’t have had Lukas last year. That’s the kind of impact he had.” Kratzer added that when a playmaker leaves, like the five seniors, it leaves a void in either the offense or defense. But the coach said that even though an athlete can be hard to replace, the Hardrockers have a lot of depth at all those positions to keep things intact. “When the program gets stronger and better we would like to have 15 to 20 seniors. We just haven’t had that yet,” Kratzer said. The ‘Rockers list nine seniors on this year’s roster — Chad Westendorf (DB), Matt Fisher (DB), Jarrod Luze (LB), Joshua Jones (RB), Jordan Anderson (DL, P), Colton Clark (DL), Matt Deardoff (OL), Justin Griesinger (OL) and Michael Kennedy (DL) With twice as many seniors on the squad this year, Kratzer said the team is full of leadership. Westendorf, Griesinger, Luze and Clark have all stepped into those roles to steer the team in the right direction. “Those are the guys that have kind of stepped up in (last) spring and took leadership roles. We are counting on those guys to continue to do that,” Kratzer said. “Those guys are heavily depended on. And they are guys we can hang our hats on.” Kratzer added that the leadership is more performance based and kind of a lead-byexample system. Basically all of the seniors on the 2008 team have seen significant playing time which has earned them a ton of respect among the underclassmen. “The fact that we do have more numbers in that senior class, and all those guys have playing and starting experience — those are key factors,” Kratzer said. “Our leadership comes very much from just performance. It’s a different style of leadership from our senior class.” Breaking down the team, Kratzer pointed to the defense as

a major strength of the unit. The line backing crew along with the secondary both have a lot of talent with some veterans mixed in with some talented new players. Junior Tyrell Anderson returns as the top linebacker. After earning All Conference First Team honors in 2007 and leading the team in tackles, he is back bigger and stronger. Luze is also among the top players in that unit along with newcomer Eric Yeash, a freshman from Colorado that has a real nose for getting to the ball carrier and bringing him to the ground. In the secondary, Westendorf is one of the cornerback along with sophomore Dustin Meneley (DAC honorable mention in 2007), who had an outstanding freshman season. Tom Lunzman (DAC second team selection in 2007), who also shined as a freshman has earned the starting free safety position and newcomer Todd Sherman is at the strong safety spot. “We knew that coming into the season. We felt that would be a big plus for us to have that kind of experience back and to have some depth,” Kratzer said. On the other side of the ball, Kratzer said the offensive line has really gelled together and appear to be the foundation for the offense. Deardoff and Griesinger have been playing on the O-line for a number of years and really anchor the group. Add in big Kayne Ree and Mark Olson at either tackle position along with Dave Randall and Clint Kling sharing time at center and they form a pretty impenetrable wall. “Everyplace else, except for tight end position, is young players,” the coach said.

Junior Jason Beilstein made the transition from quarterback to tight end a year ago and it was a good move by all. Beilstein is a good sized target that can catch the ball and get down field quick. “Jason made a good and unselfish transition to the tight end spot,” Kratzer said. “After that all our receivers are young guys.” Not only the receivers, but the starting quarterback also enters the college ranks as an untested freshman. Nick Russell from San Diego, Calif., however has an awesome presence behind center. He is able to read defenses, scrambles like an upperclassman and has an outstanding arm. He should have a stellar rookie season. The Hardrockers have a brand new running back that should be a sparkplug as well. Jamie Dale, a freshman from Alpine, Calif., is an elusive back with great speed that will burst on to the scene this year. He has similar qualities to that of Munsell as a grinder. Mix him in with Jones and the Hardrockers have a pretty solid tandem in the backfield. “That’s a real plus in a lot of ways. I think it speaks highly of the type of character they have,” Kratzer said of his new players. “ It takes a team to make good performances and there are a lot of people who will put forth great efforts to allow (these) underclassmen to have success (this season).” Special teams should be another pleasant surprise this year. The Hardrockers have a stable full of kickers and punters along

with a solid core of return men to get SDM into plenty of scoring opportunities. Rapid City sophomore Justin Whalin returns as the PAT and field goal kicker. Kratzer said he is confident in Whalin’s ability and expects good things from him. Sophomore Everett Brill has emerged as the No. 1 place kicker while sophomore Joseph Berke and senior Anderson are in the spotlight as punters. Kratzer said he is pleased in this aspect of his team and hopes they can stay consistent when kicking the ball. As for the return game, Meneley had an excellent freshman year and should be a big contributor again this year along with Dale and sophomore Logan Smidt.

South Dakota School of Mines

Looking at the conference, there aren’t really any surprises this year as Black Hills State, Minot State and Jamestown College are all bucking for that top spot. Black Hills and Jamestown were both nationally ranked in the preseason while Minot has some solid returners on their roster including one of the top running backs in the country in senior Nick Banks. “There are no surprises right now that we can see. They are three solid programs in the league and that’s what we want to become,” Kratzer said. SD Mines ranked seventh in conference. “We are going to have to earn respect game by game from our DAC opponents,” Kratzer added.
