2013 SEASON OUTLOOK

2013 Season Outlook Not every facet of administering a facelift to a football program is conducted on the field. Ultimately, the renovation reaches into the realm of aesthetics, where success is also measured by the house you keep. So if the summer refurbishing of San Diego State’s football offices can be perceived as purely superficial, its relevance cannot. In a cluster of rooms where losing had once set in like a stubborn stain and breaking even was embraced as a boon, there now resides a champion. In capturing a share of the Mountain West title last season, SDSU laid claim to its first crown since finishing as co-champion of the Western Athletic Conference in 1998. The Aztecs also won nine regular-season games, a feat last accomplished when they posted a mark of 10-1 in 1977. But there’s a trend here. SDSU enters the 2013 campaign having won seven straight regular-season games, its longest such streak in 32 years. The Aztecs are 26-13 since the beginning of the 2010 season. The 26 wins equals the total number of victories SDSU posted in 80 games prior to the 2010 season, a period during which the team went 26-54. In earning an invitation to last season’s San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl, the Aztecs played in their third consecutive postseason game for the first time in school history. But SDSU isn’t about to get comfortable resting atop its laurels. As always, there is work to be done, including identifying suitable replacements for the program’s latest NFL Draft selections, tight end Gavin Escobar and cornerback Leon McFadden, both of whom were first-team All-Mountain West selections last season. The Aztecs, who have produced 26 NFL Draft picks since 2000, return 17 starters and 49 letterwinners. There is a new offensive coordinator in place in former UCLA head coach Bob Toledo, whose accomplishments with the Bruins included a school-record 20-game winning streak, two Pac-12 titles and an appearance in the Rose Bowl. There is the challenge of a non-conference schedule that includes Ohio State,

the only unbeaten Football Bowl Subdivision team in the nation last year, and Oregon State, which finished 19th and 20th, respectively, in the USA Today Coaches’ and Associated Press polls last season. There is the competition of the Mountain West’s new West Division, where Fresno State returns to defend its 2012 share of the league title along with newcomer San Jose State, the nation’s No. 21-ranked team at the close of business last season. Mostly, however, there is the confidence that comes from winning, the byproduct of a head coach who will accept nothing less than one’s best, whose idea of success is well-rooted in the notion that responsibility and respect will ultimately be met with reward. “I think the recent success of our program has raised our expectations higher,” said Rocky Long, the 2012 Mountain West Coach of the Year who is entering his fifth overall season at SDSU and his third as head coach. “And as we go into this season, our expectation won’t be any different. We want to win the conference championship and we want to continue to improve as a football program.”

The Aztecs return seven starters on offense, with junior Adam Dingwell (five starts in 2012) having emerged from spring drills as No. 1 on the depth chart at quarterback. SDSU returns two of its top four rushers from a year ago, including a junior who has rushed for more than 100 yards eight times in just 19 games. Five of the team’s top eight receivers return, but the roster also features five wide receivers who redshirted last season and three others who were part of this year’s recruiting class. Despite the departure of the All-American Escobar, the Aztecs still boast a talented group of tight ends, as well as an offensive line that includes three players who combined for 32 starts in 2012.

 The

When starting quarterback Ryan Katz was lost for the season due to a fractured ankle suffered at Nevada in Week 8 last year, the keys to offense were handed to sophomore Adam Dingwell. Having spent his redshirt freshman season at SDSU behind four-year starter Ryan Lindley, Dingwell had attempted exactly one pass --- an incompletion. Now the job is Dingwell’s to lose. Faced with the task of replacing Katz, a player who had started 14 games against Pac-12 competition while at Oregon State, Dingwell never flinched. In what was arguably the turning point en route to securing their first Mountain West title, the Aztecs rallied from a 10-point deficit to defeat Nevada, 39-38, in overtime. In relief of Katz, who left the game after only two series, Dingwell proceeded to complete 14-of-23 passes for 177 yards and three touchdowns. He threw for 231 yards and two touchdowns to beat UNLV the following week before running his record to 3-0 when the Aztecs knocked off No. 19 Boise State, 21-19, on the road in Week 10.

Aztec Offense

San Diego State’s regular-season average of 35.1 points last season marked its highest output since 1996 when the team averaged 38.9. SDSU’s total of 427 points ranked as the sixth most in program history, with only the 1969 (464), 1990 (459), 2010 (455), 1996 (428) and 1964 (423) squads surpassing last season’s total. SDSU concluded the season ranked No. 2 in the Mountain West and No. 36 nationally in scoring offense with an average of 32.85 points per contest. And while matching those numbers in 2013 will be no small feat given attrition and new faces, it should be noted that when UCLA went 10-2 under Toledo in 1998, the Bruins finished the regular season ranked fifth nationally in scoring offense (40.5) and eighth in total offense (482.6). They also set school records for total offense (5,487 yards), passing yards (3,658) and passing touchdowns (29).

2013 SEASON OUTLOOK cont. Dingwell (6-4, 210) finished the season completing 83-of144 attempts (57.6 percent) for 939 yards and eight touchdowns. He has yet to lose a regular-season game. “He’s got great work ethic and he’s a pretty smart football player,” Toledo said. “He’s got the physical ability. The biggest problem I see with him right now is his accuracy (Dingwell threw seven interceptions in six games). We need to complete more passes than we have been. We need to be able to make routine plays and hit open receivers.” Quinn Kaehler (6-4, 215), a junior transfer from Diablo Valley College in Pleasant Hill, Calif., and senior Jake Bernards (6-5, 215), emerged from spring drills ranked No. 2 and No. 3, respectively, on the depth chart. Kaehler arrives having thrown for more than 4,000 yards and 38 touchdowns last season. “He’s got a lot of what you want in a quarterback,” Toledo said. “We’d like him to be more athletic, faster, and he needs to develop a stronger arm. But he’s got everything else. He’s very smart. He knows where everybody is on the field and he knows what’s going on. I think we could put him in a game and he’d be able to manage everything just fine.”

Ruffin (6-1, 205), a junior who started the first three games of the season last year, averaged a team-high 18.8 yards per catch in 2012 (17-319). Ruffin enters fall camp pegged as the starter at the team’s “Z” (flanker) spot. Senior Tim Vizzi (5-10, 170), who also handles SDSU’s punt return duties, is listed as the backup to Lockett, while senior Dylan Denso (6-2, 205) is No. 2 on the depth chart behind Ruffin. The two former walk-ons combined for 13 catches for 140 yards last season. “We have one guy (Lockett) with really good speed and another (Ruffin) who has a lot of potential,” Toledo said. “They’re both good receivers. I thought Vizzi was really impressive during the spring. He made plays and he knew where to be. You can’t get a better walk-on as a receiver. Denso came on strong at the end of spring. When we go to three or four receivers, those two guys will be in there ready to play.” The only other receiver on the roster to have seen action last year is sophomore Jemond Hazely (6-1, 185), who appeared in six games but did not catch a pass.

TIGHT ENDS RUNNING BACKS

Returning players with starting experience: Adam Roberts* * - denotes returning starter

Returning players with starting experience: Adam Muema*, Chad Young* * - denotes returning starter If the legacy of Ronnie Hillman was built to last, someone apparently forgot to get word to Adam Muema. In replacing Hillman, the school’s third all-time leading rusher, Muema last season earned second-team All-Mountain West honors after leading the league in yards per carry (6.42, minimum 1,250 rushing yards) while finishing with 1,458 yards (No. 4 among MW running backs) and 16 rushing touchdowns (No. 2). Among the national leaders, Muema (5-10, 205) ranked 18th in rushing yards per game (112.2). In SDSU’s Poinsettia Bowl matchup against Brigham Young, he topped the 100yard rushing mark for the seventh time in 2012. His 255-yard performance in Week 11 against Wyoming ranks as the fourth-highest single-game total in MW history. Muema is one of only nine players in SDSU history with at least two, 200-yard games. As a receiver, he caught just nine passes last season, but averaged 16.3 yards per catch, the second-highest average on the team.

ADAM MUEMA

“I’ve always had really good tailbacks, guys who have rushed for over 1,000 yards,” Toledo said. “If he stays healthy, he’ll rush for over 1,000 yards again this year. But I think the thing you’re going to see this year is that he’ll get more touches in the passing game. He’s going to have more opportunities to catch the football.” With the loss of Walter Kazee (820 yards, eight TDs) to graduation, sophomore Chase Price is currently listed No. 2 on the depth chart. Price (5-8, 200) carried 29 times last season for 114 yards. Sophomores Dwayne Garrett (6-0, 205), De’Saan Hardwick (5-9, 190) and Paul Sierra (5-9, 180) round out the depth chart. At fullback, senior Chad Young (5-10, 230) remains the irresistible force bent on destroying the immovable object. “I’ll tell you what, if you look at recruiting, or you’re a pro scout drafting, there are no fullbacks,” Toledo said. “You can’t find fullbacks anymore. With everybody going to the spread (offense), teams have gotten away from using (fullbacks). I love Chad. He’ll block, he’ll catch the ball, he can run with the ball….he just does everything that you want a player to do.”

Filling the void left by Escobar is daunting. Having earned All-America accolades in each of his three seasons at SDSU, Escobar, a second-round draft pick of the Dallas Cowboys, led the team last season in receptions (42), yards (513) and touchdowns (six). Yet Toledo is convinced he’s found the ideal replacement --- a former defensive lineman. Sophomore Robert Craighead (6-3, 265), who came to SDSU as a tight end but was moved to defense last season, is listed as No. 1 on the depth chart at the position in advance of fall camp. Craighead, a high school teammate of former Aztecs’ quarterback Ryan Lindley, caught 66 passes for 882 yards and seven touchdowns in his final two seasons at El Capitan High School in Lakeside, Calif. “The move he made from being a defensive end to being a tight end isn’t easy, but he’s really got an offensive mentality,” Toledo said. “If there was an MVP of spring practice on offense, it was him. He was really impressive.”

WIDE RECEIVERS Returning players with starting experience: Colin Lockett*, Ezell Ruffin, Dylan Denso * - denotes returning starters Lockett , a senior, entered his junior year as a preseason candidate for the Biletnikoff Award, presented annually to the nation’s top receiver. That he was even recognized was made all the more impressive by the fact that the former cornerback didn’t make the switch to offense until midway through his redshirt freshman season. As a sophomore, he led the team in receptions (58), yards (970) and touchdown receptions (eight). Those numbers dipped in 2012, largely because of the arrival of USC transfer Brice Butler and the emergence of Ruffin and Dominique Sandifer. Nonetheless, Lockett (6-0, 180), who is also a highly-regarded kick returner, enters his senior year as the team’s top returning receiver (20 receptions, 247 yards, three touchdowns). He is currently listed as the Aztecs’ starter at the “X” (split end) position.

Roberts (6-3, 235), a junior who made eight starts last season while catching three passes, did not participate in spring drills due to a broken bone in his foot. “We’re going to run some two and three tight end sets, so you’ll see Adam in there as a tight end, an H-back, a fullback, so he’s going to play a lot, too.”

OFFENSIVE LINE Returning players with starting experience: Bryce Quigley*, Zack Dilley*, Japheth Gordon* * - denotes returning starter No position has made more progress the last four seasons than the offensive line. After rushing for 2,398 yards and 28 touchdowns in 2011 while averaging 184.5 yards per game and 4.9 yards per carry, the Aztecs last season raised the bar ever higher. Despite having to replace three seniors across the offensive front, SDSU nonetheless rushed for a school-record 2,869 yards, 30 touchdowns, 220.7 yards per game and 5.0 yards per carry. The Aztecs ranked 20th nationally in rushing offense. Quigley (6-5, 295), a junior, started every game at left tackle last season after transitioning from tight end and earned All-Mountain West honorable mention. Dilley (6-5, 295), also a junior, started every game at right tackle, while Gordon (6-3, 295) made six starts at left guard and is No. 1 at the position heading into fall camp. But now comes the tricky part. Dilley, who during spring drills was initially moved to right guard to fill the void left by last year’s starter Nic Embernate, was then moved to center to fill the vacancy left by Alec Johnson. He emerged from spring drills listed once again as the starter at right tackle. Sophomore Jordan Smith (6-5, 270), who served as Johnson’s backup last season, is presently listed as the team’s starting center, while redshirt freshman Nico Siragusa is currently penciled in as the starter at right guard. “If one of the two guys behind (Dilley) at right tackle (Paul Rodriguez or Terry Poole) would come through, then we could move Dilley back to center,” Toledo said. “But right now, Jordan Smith is our center. Obviously, we need to be playing the five best people that we have.”

 The

Aztec Defense

By nature, head coaches are a fretful fraternity. And while Rocky Long’s concerns about his defense in 2013 are not entirely unwarranted, neither do they necessarily qualify as dire. Not by any stretch. There are nine starters back from a group that in 2012 ranked 39th nationally and No. 3 in the Mountain West in total defense. No team in the league was better against the run than the Aztecs, who allowed just 133.5 yards per game, the 28th-best mark in the country. SDSU also ranked third in the Mountain West in scoring defense (24.4 points per game). Every starting defensive lineman returns, as does every starting linebacker. Ditto for the hybrid positions of warrior and Aztec in Long’s signature 3-3-5 defense. The concern --- and it’s not a trivial one --- is at cornerback, where SDSU lost starters Leon McFadden and Josh Wade to graduation. McFadden, who played in all 51 games (45 starts) in his four seasons, became the first Aztec cornerback since 2004 to be selected in the NFL Draft when he was taken by the Cleveland Browns in the third round. Wade, meanwhile, signed a free agent contract with the Canadian Football League’s BC Lions. Long’s defense demands much from its cornerbacks, who must possess the ability to routinely cover receivers one-onone. Said Long: “Really, the only question we have on defense are our two corners.”

DEFENSIVE LINE Returning players with starting experience: Jordan Thomas*, Dontrell Onuoha, Sam Meredith*, Cody Galea* * - denotes returning starter While Long’s concern this season rests with the cornerback position, a year ago it was the defensive line, a unit that entered fall camp bereft of all three starters from 2011. Yet the group proved itself worthy of the challenge, as the foursome of Thomas (6-1, 255), Onuoha (6-2, 265), Meredith (6-4, 275) and Galea (6-3, 265) combined for 85 tackles, 14.5 tackles for loss and 5.5 sacks. Meredith, a junior, was particularly impressive, earning AllMountain West honorable mention accolades. The native of La Mesa, Calif., led all Aztec defensive linemen with 36 tackles (5.5 for loss). Listed No. 1 on the depth chart at tackle

coming out of spring drills, he also contributed a sack and a fumble recovery last season. “I thought he improved dramatically from where he was early in the year to where he was late in the season,” Long said. “One of the reasons we got much better up front last year was because he got a lot better. He should be a quality, potentially all-conference, player this year.” Galea, meanwhile, a junior who didn’t make his first start until the fifth game of the season, finished with 22 tackles (3.5 for loss) and paced the defensive front with 2.5 sacks. Galea and Thomas, who had 5.5 tackles for loss and 2.0 sacks in 2012, will enter fall camp as the team’s starting defensive ends. Thomas is the lone senior in the group. “Both (Galea and Thomas) are smart football players who are very strong with good speed and quickness,” Long said. “With the experience they’ve gotten, I’d expect them to have great years.” Junior Everett Beed (6-3, 255), who played in 10 games last season while recording 10 tackles (4.5 for loss), is also in the mix at defensive end. Sophomore Dan Kottman (6-1, 245), currently listed as the backup to Meredith at tackle, also appeared in 10 games last season, contributing 10 tackles and 1.5 tackles for loss.

LINEBACKERS Returning players with starting experience: Nick Tenhaeff, Jake Fely, Vaness Harris, Derek Largent * - denotes returning starter Entering the 2012 campaign, Long dubbed his linebacking corps as “our strongest position on defense.” Given that assessment, one can only wonder how strong the position will be this season. Consider: Fely, a second-team All-Mountain West pick, and Tenhaeff started every game last season. Largent, meanwhile, who didn’t even make his first start until Week 8, finished fourth on the team in total tackles. Of the 10 linebackers currently on the depth chart, seven saw playing time last season, including Harris, who made seven starts. “We have several players coming back at linebacker who played a lot of football last year because we alternate a lot at that position,” Long said. “Jake Fely was second-team allconference and I think he’ll only be better. Nick Tenhaeff is going to be a senior and we expect him to be better. Vanesse

for loss), collected three sacks and forced a fumble. Junior Josh Gavert (6-2, 220) and senior Scott Graves (510, 220) appeared in all 13 games last season, while senior Jacob Driver (6-2, 220) played in 12.

NAT BERHE

SECONDARY Returning players with starting experience: King Holder, Marcus Andrews*, Rene Siluano*, Nat Berhe*, Eric Pinkins*, Gabe Lemon* * - denotes returning starter

Harris is a senior who we expect to have a great year and we expect the same from Derek Largent. He was really a nice surprise for us last year.” At 5-10, 220, Fely, a native of Oceanside, Calif., may be undersized as a prototypical middle linebacker. Yet what he lacks in size he more than compensates for in sock. A twoyear starter who is only a junior, he has amassed 147 career tackles, 18.5 tackles for loss totaling 83 yards, 9.5 sacks, five forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries. He ranked first on the team in sacks (seven) last season while finishing second in total tackles (90) and tackles for loss (11.5). In his first season as a starter last year, Tenhaeff, a 6-2, 225-pound senior outside linebacker, led the Aztecs in tackles for loss (13.0) while finishing tied for third on the squad with three sacks. He also forced a fumble. If Largent (6-4, 235) was largely an unknown quantity last year after transferring from El Camino College in Torrance, Calif., he’s not anymore. Listed No. 1 on the depth chart opposite Tenhaeff at outside linebacker, Largent turned in a remarkable season in 2012. Despite playing a reserve role the first six games of the campaign, he ultimately earned AllMountain West honorable mention accolades. He finished fourth on the team with 61 tackles, was third with 9.5 tackles for loss and ranked second with 6.5 sacks. He also intercepted two passes and recovered three fumbles. Harris (6-2, 255), who started the first seven games before giving way to the rampaging Largent, posted 31 tackles (6.0

Where the cornerback position is concerned, it’s come one, come all. “Right now, we have no idea who are starting corners will be,” Long said. “The inexperience we have at that position is probably our biggest concern.” With McFadden having started every game last season and Wade all but one, two of the leading candidates to succeed them --- juniors King Holder (5-10, 165) and J.J. Whittaker (5-10, 180) --- both missed all (Holder) or some (Whittaker) of spring drills with shoulder injuries. Holder, who had 33 tackles to go along with 2.5 tackles for loss, a sack and five pass breakups last season, appeared in all 13 games, starting one. Whittaker, meanwhile, has battled injuries throughout his career. With Holder and Whitaker sidelined, the bulk of playing time during spring drills fell to junior Mahbu Keels (6-1, 175), sophomore Pierre Romain (5-8, 165), junior David Lamar (62, 180) and redshirt freshman Damontae Kazee (5-11, 175), the brother of former Aztecs running back Walter Kazee. Keels and Romain are at the top of the depth chart heading into fall camp. Romain appeared in every game last season, while Keels, a San Diego native, played in four. If inexperience is an issue at cornerback, however, it’s certainly not a concern at the warrior or Aztec positions. The two warrior spots, considered hybrid safeties in Long’s defense, feature four players – seniors Andrews, Siluano, Pinkins and Lemon --- who combined to start every game at the position last season. Andrews and Pinkins emerged from spring drills listed No. 1 on the depth chart. Pinkins (6-3, 215) made 10 starts en route to finishing third on the team in tackles (65) and fourth in tackles for loss (7.0) last season. He also tied McFadden for team-high honors with three interceptions, collected two sacks and recovered a fumble. Andrews (6-0, 190), a senior who started the final seven games of 2012 while appearing in all 13 contests, posted 27 tackles and an interception. Siluano (5-10, 180), a native of Oceanside, Calif., appeared in every game last season after starting the first six. He recorded 30 tackles (13 unassisted), intercepted a pass and had two tackles for loss. Lemon (5-10, 195), meanwhile, who played in 12 games in 2012 while starting two, finished the season with 32 tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss, one sack and two pass breakups. “We have a lot of seniors at that position who have played a lot of football,” Long said. “That gives us the benefit of playing a lot of people there and keeping them fresh. Those guys don’t make many assignment errors, so we shouldn’t give up plays because we’re not doing the right thing. As a group, I think our safeties are the best in the league.” The same could be said of the team’s starter at the esteemed

Aztec position, where Nat Berhe (5-10, 190) returns for his senior season. Berhe, who as the Aztec can be found lining up anywhere on the field, from safety to linebacker to the line of scrimmage, earned second-team All-Mountain West honors last season after leading the team in tackles with 94. He also contributed two tackles for loss, intercepted two passes and recovered a fumble. “Nat is our middle safety, the guy who has to make all the adjustments to our defense,” Long said of Berhe, an AllMountain West honorable mention pick as a sophomore. “He’s been doing it for two years now, so he’s pretty comfortable back there. If he can stay healthy, he should have a great year.” Sophomore Stan Sedberry (6-2, 210), a standout special teams player who appeared in every game last season, will enter fall camp as the backup to Berhe.

 The

Aztec Special Teams

Returning players with starting experience: Seamus McMorrow*, Joel Alesi, Wes Feer * - denotes returning starter With McMorrow, who handled kickoffs and punts last season, having missed spring drills, Alesi is listed No. 1 on the depth chart at punter while Feer is currently the team’s No. 1 placekicker. Alesi, a 6-0, 235-pound junior, served as the team’s starting punter in two games last season, averaging 43.5 yards on six punts with a long of 56. Although he did not attempt a field goal last season, Feer, a 5-11, 205-pound senior, twice handled the team’s kickoff duties. McMorrow, a 5-11, 190-pound sophomore, is currently listed as the No. 2 punter and placekicker. He averaged 41.7 yards with a long of 56 on 41 punts last year and also kicked off in all but two games. “McMorrow can both kick and punt, but he’s going to have to compete to win either job during fall camp,” Long said. “We expect that to be a good battle.” Seniors Colin Lockett and Tim Vizzi are currently penciled in to handle the teams’ kickoff and punt return duties, respectively. Lockett averaged 25.8 yards per kickoff return last season and returned two for touchdowns, one of them coming in the Aztecs’ upset of No. 19 Boise State. Vizzi averaged 7.3 yards on 13 punt returns.

COACHES & STAFF INFORMATION

Rocky Long ­ Head Coach At San Diego State: 5th Overall; 3rd as Head Coach Overall: 14th Season as a Head Coach  2002 & 2012 Mountain West Coach of the Year n the 14-year history of the Mountain West, no football coach is more synonymous with success than Aztec head coach Rocky Long. Named San Diego State’s 18th head coach on Jan. 12, 2011, he begins his third year at the helm of the Aztecs. He will continue his role as the squad’s defensive coordinator, a position that he also held when he first arrived on campus in 2009. Long is the winningest head coach in the history of the Mountain West and has helped usher in two of the biggest turnarounds at MW schools - New Mexico and San Diego State. Over the last four seasons, Long helped institute a hard-nosed, blue-collar, physical-style of football on Montezuma Mesa that revitalized a football program that had been struggling to find an identity for decades. In December of 2008, Long inherited one of the worst defensive units statistically in the country. That season, the Aztecs went 2-10 and posted one victory over a FBS team. The team’s defense allowed an average of 37.2 points, 460.8 yards, 247.5 rushing yards and had a passing efficiency defense rating of 151.5. San Diego State also ranked among the bottom eight nationally in all four of those categories, allowing 35 or more points in seven of its final eight games of the season. Enter Long and his attacking 3-3-5 defense and the improvement was immediate. Despite employing a drastically different style, Long, in his first year as SDSU’s defensive coordinator in 2009, managed to shave more than a touchdown a game off the team’s average points allowed and took more than 78 yards per outing off of the total offense allowed figure. In 2010, Long built a top-40 defense that ceded 20 points or less six times, as the Aztecs posted a winning record for the first time in 12 years, claimed nine victories for the first time since 1977, and captured a bowl victory for the first time since 1969. The 2011 campaign was no different, as he became the first Aztec head coach to lead the team to a bowl game in his debut season. SDSU compiled an 8-5 record, including its first 3-0 start in 30 years, while also snapping a 19-game losing streak against Pac-10/12 foes and a 23-game skid vs. schools from automatic qualifying BCS conferences.

Last season, Long garnered his second Mountain West Coach of the Year award after guiding the Aztecs to their first conference championship since 1998 and an unprecedented third straight bowl appearance. Despite a modest fifthplace prediction in the MW preseason poll, Long and SDSU closed out the regular season by winning seven straight games, matching the program’s longest victory streak since 1980-81. During that stretch, the Aztecs ranked fifth in the nation, allowing just 4.7 yards per play, while limiting the opposition to 19 points or less on five occa-

sions. Long had already made the transition from defensive coordinator to head coach once before, as he directed New Mexico to unparalleled success from 1998-2008. During those 11 years, Long compiled a 65-69 record, including seven seasons with six victories or more. To put that accomplishment in perspective, consider that since 1984, the Lobos are 56-143 with only three six-plus win seasons in the 17 campaigns without Long at the helm. At New Mexico, Long compiled a school-record 65 victories and led the Lobos to five bowl game appearances in his final seven seasons, despite inheriting a team that had only three winning seasons the previous 15 years. His teams were also bowl eligible in seven of his final eight campaigns. Long, the 2002 Mountain West Conference Coach of the Year, has earned a national reputation for producing one of the nation’s stingiest defensive units. In his final nine campaigns in Albuquerque, Long’s defensive units ranked among the top 30 in fewest yards allowed six times and among the top 40 nationally against the rush every year. In addition, six times

2013 SA DIEGO STATE FOOTBALL

his units w e r e among the top 26 in fewest rushing yards allowed per game, including fifth-place finishes in both 2001 and 2003. While at New Mexico, Long coached 13 players selected in the NFL Draft, 10 players who earned All-America honors and 44 first-team all-conference selections. In addition, four Lobos garnered Academic AllAmerica accolades five times during his tenure. And Long does not mince words when describing what his vision for his San Diego State football program is. “Everybody should anticipate that this program eventually will be competing

for conference championships, year-in and year-out,” Long said. “Now, how many you win is determined by a whole lot of factors, but we ought to be able to get to the point where we compete yearly for it.” Prior to accepting the head coaching position at New Mexico, Long served as defensive coordinator for 12 seasons at three different schools. He was the defensive coordinator for two years under Bob Toledo at UCLA in 1996-97, for five seasons at Oregon State from 1991-95, and for five campaigns at Wyoming from 1981-85.

COACHING HIGHLIGHTS  Was named the 18th head coach in Aztec football history in Jan-

uary 2011 and became the first San Diego State head coach to lead the team to a bowl game in his debut campaign. Long has also amassed the most victories of any Mountain West head coach since the league’s inception in 1999.  Guided San Diego State to an 8-5 record in 2011, the program’s best mark in a coach’s inaugural season since 1986. The eight victories are tied for second in school history by a first-year head coach.  Led the Aztecs to their first 3-0 start in 30 years during the 2011 campaign, highlighted by a 42-24 victory over Washington State, which snapped a 19-game losing streak vs. Pac-10/12 foes and a 23-game skid against schools from automatic qualifying BCS conferences.  Helped three players garner All-America honors in 2011, including running back Ronnie Hillman, who was a third-team pick by the Associated Press, tight end Gavin Escobar and cornerback Larry Parker. The trio was among a record seven Aztecs to receive firstteam all-Mountain West recognition.  During the 2011 campaign, SDSU also led the league in turnover margin (0.92/g), sacks (2.23/g), tackles for loss (6.54/g), sacks allowed (0.85/g) and fewest penalties (41.1 ypg).  Was named Mountain West Coach of the Year for the second time in his career in 2012 after guiding the Aztecs a 9-4 record and their first conference championship since 1998. SDSU also set a school record with its third consecutive bowl appearance.  Last season, the Aztecs topped the league in rushing defense (133.5 ypg), vaulting to the 28th spot in the national rankings after finishing 78th in that category in 2011.  With his guidance, a total of seven Aztecs have been chosen in the NFL Draft over the past two years, including tight end Gavin Escobar (second round), defensive back Leon McFadden (third round) and wide receiver Brice Butler (seventh) in April 2013. With their selections, SDSU has had at least three draft picks in consecutive years for the first time since 1997-98.  Came to San Diego State to be the team’s defensive coordinator in December 2008. In his first year, he helped improve defensive marks in points allowed, first downs, rushing, total defense, thirddown conversion percentage, fourth-down conversion percentage, sacks, interceptions and red-zone conversion percentage, among other categories.  In his second campaign, he was part of the coaching staff that helped the Aztecs make their first postseason appearance and log their first winning record in 12 years.  Came to SDSU after serving as head coach at New Mexico from 1998-2008. He was tabbed the league’s coach of the year in 2002.  Compiled a New Mexico-record 65 victories and led the Lobos to five bowl game appearances in his final seven seasons. His teams were bowl eligible in seven of his last eight campaigns.  In his final nine seasons in Albuquerque, Long's defensive units ranked among the top 30 in fewest yards allowed six times and among the top 40 against the rush every year.

COACHES & STAFF INFORMATION

Bob Toledo ­ Offensive Coordinator COACHING EXPERIENCE  Bob Toledo arrived on Montezuma Mesa in January 2013 and is

the Aztecs’ offensive coordinator.  In his 39th year of collegiate coaching overall, he has served 18 years as a head coach. His teams have been to 13 bowl games, including seven of the traditional New Year’s Day bowls.  Enters his fourth season working with Rocky Long. Held the role

of assistant head coach/offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach under Long at New Mexico in 2006. Long, meanwhile was the defensive coordinator on Toledo’s staff at UCLA for two years from 1996-97.  In his lone season at UNM, he helped the Lobos to a berth in the inaugural New Mexico Bowl, as running back Rodney Ferguson led the Mountain West in rushing and earned first-team all-conference honors. Also thriving in his system were wide receiver Travis Brown and offensive guard Robert Turner, who garnered first-team all-MW recognition as well.  Under his tutelage at Tulane, tailback Matt Forte rushed for a school-record 2,127 yards in 2007--the seventh-highest single-season total in NCAA history. A second-round pick of the Chicago Bears in 2008, Forte became the sixth running back coached by Toledo to be selected in the NFL Draft, joining Karim Abdul-Jabbar (UCLA), DeShaun Foster (UCLA), Skip Hicks (UCLA), Lionel Manuel (Pacific) and Derek Williams (UC Riverside).  Coached Tulane’s first 1,000-yard rushing and 1,000-yard receiving combination in the same season during the 2009 campaign, as running back Andre Anderson played in the East-West Shrine Game, while wide receiver Jeremy Williams was named South MVP in the Senior Bowl.  Spent seven years as head coach at UCLA from 1996-2002, compiling a 49-32 overall record. During his tenure, the Bruins fashioned a school-record 20-game winning streak, claimed two Pac-10 titles and posted non-conference victories over Texas (twice), Alabama (twice), Ohio State and Texas A&M. Before assuming the head coaching duties in Westwood, he served as UCLA’s offensive coordinator for two seasons (1994-95) under Terry Donahue.  Coached 11 first-team All-Americans during his tenure at UCLA, including Cade McNown, Kris Farris and Jonathan Ogden. In 1998, McNown was the winner of the Unitas Golden Arm Award and was named Pac-10 Offensive Player of the Year, while Farris captured the Outland Trophy that season. Ogden, meanwhile, took home the Outland Trophy in 1995 and was later enshrined into the College Football Hall of Fame.  His 1998 Bruin squad went 10-2, rising to No. 2 in the national polls. Under his direction, UCLA finished the regular season ranked fifth nationally in scoring offense (40.5 pts/gm) and eighth in total offense (482.6 yds/gm). He was also a finalist for three Coach of Year awards after the team set school records in total offense (5,487 yds), passing (3,658 yds) and passing TDs (29).  In 1997, the Bruins also established a school standard, scoring

477 points en route to a 10-2 record. In the Cotton Bowl against Texas A&M, UCLA overcame a 16-0 first-half deficit for a 29-23 victory to secure a No. 5 national ranking. With Rocky Long guiding the defense that year, the Bruins ranked second nationally in turnovers forced (39) and turnover margin (+1.8), while leading the Pac-10 in interceptions (10).  Spent five years as offensive coordinator at Texas A&M (1986-

93), as the Aggies amassed a 49-12-1 record, winning three Southwest Conference titles to go with five straight bowl appearances.  Served as the offensive coordinator at Oregon for six seasons

(1983-88), developing two of the Pac-10’s most productive quarterbacks in Chris Miller and Bill Musgrave.

2012 Season Recap

ANOTHER YEAR TO REMEMBER

San Diego State proved that the past two football seasons weren’t a fluke. The Aztecs turned a late-season seven-game win streak into a share of the Mountain West title and a school-record third straight bowl game appearance. Below are a few of the notable accomplishments from the 2012 season:  Finished 7-1 in MW play to tie Boise State and Fresno State for the league title, SDSU’s 19th conference championship, first-ever MW title and first league championship since 1998.  Played in the Poinsettia Bowl, marking the first time in the program’s 43-year Division I history that San Diego State played in three consecutive bowl games. The Aztecs are one of only 39 schools in the nation with three straight bowl trips and one of just two in California (Stanford).  Finished with nine victories, matching the program’s most since the 1977 squad went 10-1 as an independent.  Won seven consecutive games from Oct. 6-Nov. 24, SDSU’s longest win streak since a seven-game streak from Nov. 15, 1980-Oct. 10, 1981. The seven straight wins in a single season was their longest streak since the final seven contests of the 1977 campaign.  Defeated No. 19 (AP) Boise State on Nov. 3 for San Diego State’s highest-ranked win in a road or neutral game. The Aztecs entered the game 0-31 in road games at AP Top-25 teams. SDSU defeated its highest-ranked opponent since a win vs. No. 16 Wyoming on Nov. 7, 1996. BSU had entered the game with an NCAA FBS-best 71-1 regular season home record since Sept. 22, 2001.

IN LONG WE TRUST Head coach Rocky Long continues to leave his legacy on the Mountain West and now San Diego State. Note the following:  Is the MW’s all-time leader in coaching victories (79).  Was named the MW Coach of the Year in 2012, 10 years after winning the award while at New Mexico.  Is tied with Claude Gilbert for the most coaching victories (17) ever through the first two seasons with the Aztecs.  Owns the third-best coaching record in program history at 17-9 (.654).  Became the first SDSU coach to lead the team to a bowl game in his inaugural campaign and accomplished the feat again in 2012.

MORE PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS  Since the beginning of the 2010 season, San Diego State owns a 26-13 record (.667), which is tied for the 25th-highest winning percentage in the country during that span. In the nine seasons prior to 2010, the Aztecs posted a record of 3880 (.322), which ranked 106th nationally.  SDSU drew a Mountain West-best 247,029 fans during the home portion of the 2012 campaign.  San Diego State has produced nine NFL Draft selections since 2011, including Gavin Escobar (2nd round, No. 47 to Dallas Cowboys), Leon McFadden (3rd round, No. 68 to Cleveland Browns) and Brice Butler (7th round, No. 208 to Oakland Raiders) in April. That is tied for the 30th-highest total nationally and is second among current MW schools (Boise State, 10).

THE RUNNING GAME  During the 2012 off-season, many questioned if San Diego State would be able to get the same production out of its

96

    

ground attack with the departure of All-American Ronnie Hillman to the NFL. That was not a problem. The running back tandem of sophomore Adam Muema and senior Walter Kazee outrushed Hillman and helped the 2012 squad set a team rushing school record. Muema (1,458 yards, 16 touchdowns) and Kazee (822 yards, eight touchdowns) combined for 2,280 yards and 24 touchdowns, compared to Hillman’s totals of 1,711 yards and 19 scores in 2011. As a team, the Aztecs rushed for 2,869 yards and 30 touchdowns. The 2,869 yards were 393 more yards than the previous best of 2,476, set in 1991, while the 30 rushing touchdowns were tied for the third most in a season.

OTHER 2012 INDIVIDUAL NOTABLES  Four-year starting defensive back Leon McFadden ended his SDSU career with a school-record 39 pass breakups and was sixth with 186 interception return yards. He became just the second player in San Diego State history with two interceptions returned for a touchdown in a season and only trailed Ricky Parker’s career-best three from 1993-96. McFadden, who became the fifth player in school history to earn first-team all-conference honors three consecutive years, played in all 51 games with the Aztecs since arriving as a true



freshman in 2009.  Offensive guard Nik Embernate and tight end Gavin Escobar joined McFadden on the MW all-conference team. Embernate became the second SDSU offensive lineman to earn first-team all-league honors since 2004 after helping San Diego State set a school record with 2,869 rushing yards. Escobar, meanwhile, made his second straight all-MW first team after being named a second-team pick as a freshman in 2010. A semifinalist for the Mackey Award (nation’s top tight end), Escobar led the Aztecs in receptions (42), receiving yards (543) and touchdown receptions (6).  Making up the second team were Aztec Nat Berhe, linebacker Jake Fely, center Alec Johnson and running back Adam Muema. Berhe led all SDSU players with 94 tackles to go along with five pass breakups, Fely had 90 tackles, 11.5 tackles for loss and a team-high seven sacks, Johnson started at center for San Diego State’s record rushing year and Muema rushed for 1,458 yards and 16 touchdowns.  Rounding out the Aztecs’ all-league picks were honorablemention selections linebacker Derek Largent (61 tackles, 9.5 TFL, 6.5 sacks, 3 FR, 2 INT), defensive tackle Sam Meredith (36 tackles, 5.5 TFL) and offensive tackle Bryce Quigley, who converted from a tight end in 2012.

SEATTLE - San Diego State was unable to overcome an early deficit and three turnovers in a 21-12 loss at Washington in the 2012 season opener for both teams. The Aztecs threw an interception on their first drive and punted on a three and out on their second, and the Huskies took advantage with touchdowns on both possessions. UW, which took over on the SDSU 35 after the interception, got in the end zone on a twoyard run by Bishop Sankey. Quarterback Keith Price drove Washington 62 yards on the team’s next drive, culminating in a 8-yard pass to Kasen Williams. After the slow start, the San Diego State defense stood tall the rest of the way, limiting the Huskies to 231 yards and no points on their final seven drives. The Aztecs got on the scoreboard on the first play of the second quarter when quarterback Ryan Katz found a wide-open Tim Vizzi on the left side, who ran 47 yards for the touchdown. SDSU, however, failed on the 2-point conversion. Early in the third quarter, UW safety Will Shamburger returned a fumble 44 yards to give the home team the 21-6 advantage. Adam Muema completed an 11-play, 71-yard drive in the fourth when he pounded it in on a 4th and 1. But once again, San Diego State was unable to convert the 2-point conversion and trailing, 21-12. After forcing Washington to punt, the Aztecs tried to mount another scoring drive. They went 76 yards, highlighted by a 26-yard run by Walter Kazee and a 32-yard pass from Katz to Colin Lockett.

SAN DIEGO - San Diego State scored the first 35 points of the game en route to a dominating 42-7 victory over Army in the 2012 home opener for the Aztecs. SDSU forced three turnovers, scored four rushing touchdowns and a passing score, and added a 96-yard kickoff return for another touchdown in the program’s largest margin of victory since the 2010 opener. San Diego State scored three touchdowns in a span of 2:45 in the third quarter after opening up a 21-0 advantage at the half. Adam Muema ran for 98 yards and a score in three quarters, while Walter Kazee rushed for 51 yards and two touchdowns. Backup quarterback Adam Dingwell added a 7-yard score for his first career score. Ezell Ruffin had a career day with his first five receptions and 132 yards. All five of his catches were for first downs. Ryan Katz threw for 215 yards, including a 8-yard touchdown to Chad Young to account for the Aztecs’ other score. SDSU kept Army off the scoreboard for its first nine possessions before a 10-yard run by Terry Baggett in the third quarter ended its bid for a shutout. Nat Berhe led the Aztec defense with a career-high 14 tackles, while Josh Gavert and Eric Pinkins each had an interception. Derek GAME STATISTICS Largent recovered his first-ever fumble.

SAN DIEGO – Adam Muema rushed for two touchdowns and Ryan Katz passed for two scores and ran for another to lead San Diego State to a 38-14 victory over Colorado State at Qualcomm Stadium. Muema had 105 yards on 14 carries, while Katz was 16-for-22 for 181 yards with no interceptions, and finished with the second-highest pass efficiency rating of his career (171.84). Walter Kazee added 95 yards on the ground for the Aztecs, who finished without a penalty for the first time since Nov. 3, 1971 at San Jose State. The SDSU defense forced three Ram turnovers (two interceptions by Derek Largent and a forced fumble by Josh Wade (recovered by Jake Fely)) and turned them into three touchdowns and 21 points. Fely had a career-high 13 tackles, 3.5 for loss, with two sacks and a fumble recovery. Largent’s two interceptions were a career high, and senior Leon McFadden’s two pass breakups moved him within five of the SDSU career record. San Diego State took just four plays and 1:47 to score on its opening drive, culminating with a 51yard run by Muema. It was the Aztecs’ longest opening drive of the season. CSU responded with a 15-play, 72-yard drive that took up 5:33 of clock time when M.J. McPeek found Kiv Cartwright on a 2-yard pass on fourth and goal. On the first play from scrimmage in the second half, Marquise Law fumbled for Colorado State, and Jake Fely recovered for the Aztecs. Two plays later, Katz scrambled to the end zone from 11 yards out to give SDSU a 24-7 lead. After Derek Largent's interception gave San Diego State the ball at the CSU 33, Katz found Brice Butler for a 15-yard TD pass and a 31-7 advantage. GAME STATISTICS The Aztecs scored 31 unanswered points before Colorado State 7 0 0 7 - 14 a 1-yard run by Tommey Morris in the fourth quarter San Diego State 7 10 14 7 - 38 doubled Colorado State’s scoring total.

RENO, Nev. – Backup quarterback Adam Dingwell threw three touchdown passes and a two-point conversion in overtime to lift San Diego State a 39-38 victory over Nevada. Dingwell, who replaced an injured Ryan Katz after the team’s second drive of the game, completed 14 of 23 passes for 177 yards. He came into the contest with two career completions for 28 yards. After Nevada went up 38-31 in overtime on a 3-yard TD pass from Cody Fajardo to Brandon Wimberly, the Aztecs needed two just plays to pull to within 38-37, scoring on a 21-yard pass from Dingwell to Gavin Escobar. The Aztecs elected to go for the win and Dingwell sealed it with a pass to Adam Roberts in the corner of the end zone for the successful two-point conversion. San Diego State trailed, 31-28, and tied it on a 35-yard field goal by Chance Marden as time expired in regulation to force overtime. Nevada's Stefphon Jefferson, the nation's leading rusher, was held to 108 yards on 32 carries, and scored on a 1-yard touchdown run that put the Wolf Pack up 31-21 with 7:46 left in the game. Dominique Sandifer had five catches for 60 yards and a touchdown, while Escobar caught five balls for 39 yards and two scores. Walter Kazee (15 rushes, 58 yards) also scored a rushing touchdown for the Aztecs.

SAN DIEGO – Adam Dingwell threw for 231 yards and two touchdowns in his first-ever start to lead San Diego State to a 24-13 victory against UNLV at Qualcomm Stadium. Dingwell, who replaced Ryan Katz after he suffered a season-ending broken ankle the week before at Nevada, became the first Aztec quarterback to win his first start since Spencer Brinton did so in 1997. Dingwell threw touchdown passes to Gavin Escobar (12 yards) in the second quarter and Colin Lockett (27 yards) in the third period. Escobar had 108 yards on four receptions. Adam Muema ran for 143 yards on 21 carries and Walter Kazee added 105 yards and a touchdown on 21 rushes for the Aztecs. It was the second time this season both runners eclipsed 100 yards in the same game and the 16th time that has happened in program history. The Rebels scored first when Tim Cornett broke free for a 64-yard touchdown on their opening drive after SDSU was forced to punt. San Diego State, however, scored a touchdown in each of the first three quarters to open a 21-6 lead. UNLV’s Nick Sherry found Devante Davis with 25-yard TD pass to cut the lead to eight late in the third quarter, but a 28-yard field goal by Chance Marden in the fourth sealed the 11-point win for the Aztecs. However, it wasn’t nearly SDSU’s sharpest performance. The Aztecs turned the ball over three times in the first half alone and had several other miscues throughout the game.

BOISE, Idaho – San Diego State used an opening 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown and solid special teams play all around to defeat No. 19/14 Boise State, 21-19, at Bronco Stadium. It was the fifth straight win for the Aztecs, who snapped a 31-game road/neutral losing streak against top-25 AP teams. Colin Lockett returned the opening kickoff for the 100-yard score, his second of the season and third of his career. Dwayne Garrett later blocked a Bronco punt, which set up a 3-yard run by Adam Muema and put SDSU up, 14-13, early in the third quarter. Early in the fourth, Walter Kazee capped a 10-play, 80-yard drive that took up 6:45 of clock time with a 1-yard rushing touchdown on a fourth and goal. Southwick led BSU on a 16-play, 75-yard drive capped by his 1-yard touchdown toss to fullback Dan Paul that pulled Boise State within 21-19. The Broncos went for the two-point conversion, but Southwick was pressured and Rene Siluano picked off his pass near the goal line. San Diego State ran out the clock on its ensuing drive to hand BSU just its second loss in its last 73 regular-season home games. Muema rushed for 127 yards on 25 carries to lead the Aztec rushing attack.

2012 Game Recaps Brigham Young San Diego State

23 6

Dec. 20, 2012 l Qualcomm Stadium l San Diego, Calif. l ESPN SAN DIEGO – Propelled by two defensive touchdowns, Brigham Young erased a 6-3 halftime deficit by erupting for 20 points in the fourth quarter to pull away for a 23-6 triumph over San Diego State in the 2012 San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl at Qualcomm Stadium. The Aztecs had their seven-game winning snapped after suffering five turnovers on the night, including four in the final quarter, as the Cougars notched their sixth straight victory in the series between the two former conference rivals. SDSU drove deep into BYU territory on two drives in the first half, but had to settle for a pair of Chance Marden field goals from 27 and 23 yards out, respectively, which gave the Red and Black a 60 advantage by the 10:46 mark of the second quarter. Following an exchange of punts, the Aztecs appeared to have increased their lead when Eric Pinkins intercepted a pass from Cougar quarterback Riley Nelson and raced 39 yards into the end zone. However, the apparent touchdown was nullified by a penalty on the return, and the subsequent Aztec drive stalled. BYU took possession on its own 20 and drove 74 yards to the SDSU 6, where kicker Justin Sorenson booted a 23-yard field goal as the clock expired to put the Cougars on the board. After a scoreless third quarter, the Aztecs found themselves pinned at their own 3-yard line early in the fourth period, when BYU linebacker Kyle Van Noy forced an Adam Dingwell fumble and quickly pounced on the loose ball in the end zone to give GAME STATISTICS the Cougars the lead for good at 10-6. Brigham Young 0 3 0 20 - 23 Just 17 seconds later, BYU took advantage of San Diego State 3 3 0 0 - 6 another Dingwell fumble , as Jamaal Williams scored SDSU - Marden 27-yd field goal, 8-52, 3:13 (8:31, on a 14-yard run up the middle on the Cougars’ first play after the turnover. 1st) SDSU - Marden 23-yd field goal, 11-61, 5:14 (10:46, With 6:09 left in the game, Van Noy intercepted 2nd) a Dingwell pass and dashed 17 yard into the end BYU - Sorensen 23-yd field goal, 12-74, 5:06 (0:00, zone to complete the scoring. 2nd) Adam Muema broke the 100-yard barrier for the BYU - Van Noy 0-yd fumble recovery (Sorensen kick), seventh time this season after gaining 111 yards on 0-0, 0:00 (12:32, 4th) BYU - Williams 14-yd run (Sorensen kick), 1-14, 0:05 26 attempts to lead the SDSU rushing attack, while (12:15, 4th) Dingwell finished with 144 yards passing on 12-ofBYU - Van Noy 17-yd interception return (Sorensen 23 attempts. kick), 0-0, 0:00 (6:09, 4th) First Downs Rushes-Yards Passing Yards C-A-I Total Offense Fumbles-Lost Penalties-Yards Possession Time Turnovers Average Field Pos.
