Welcome... Welcome to this athletic season at Tiffin University. I invite you to watch and cheer for all of our women’s and men’s teams. Intercollegiate athletics play an important role at Tiffin University. The students who participate develop life-long friendships and learn leadership and teamwork skills, how to set goals and work hard to achieve those goals, how to deal with adversity, the importance of persistence, sportsmanship, and physical fitness, and other skills and abilities that contribute to satisfying and productive lives and careers. Our athletic program also provides visibility and name recognition for TU, helps develop a sense of excitement, morale and school spirit on campus, and provides opportunities for students, employees, alumni, and supporters to unite behind a common goal. We are especially proud of the high standards of conduct displayed by our coaches and players on and off the field. Paul Marion, Ph. D. At Tiffin University, our students endeavour to excel in both the classroom and the athletic arena. Our athletic programs have enjoyed tremendous success in recent years with conference championships, teams being nationally ranked and challenging at national tournaments. There have been numerous individual accolades including All-Americans, and it is no small accomplishment that in the past few years we have set new standards of excellence with our individual and team academic achievements. We expect our student-athletes to be just as successful in the classroom. A recent self study conducted by the university indicated that, of all the athletes who completed their eligibility at Tiffin University in the last five years, 95% of those athletes graduated. While many colleges would be ecstatic with these results, we will never be content until it is 100%. We are proud of our rich history and look forward to setting new milestones as we enter the NCAA Division II playing field and the highly competitive Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. We are proud of our athletes and what they have accomplished. They have been the force behind the winning tradition that has been established, and I am confident the future will also be highly successful for Tiffin University athletics. - Lonny Allen Athletic Director

2011 Season Preview Beginning his 20th season at the helm of Tiffin Dragons’ baseball, head coach Lonny A Allen made it perfectly clear what TU needs to do if it wants to advance to its first ever Great G Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Tournament berth. “We want to be strong from game one and our guys understand game one is as importa as game 50,” Allen explained. “To reach our goal, we need to start strong from the tant b beginning because we have been notoriously known as a slow starter and picked it up by th end of the year.” the While Tiffin finished the season 21-33, the Dragons started off slow with only three w wins in its first 16 games of the year in 2010. Tiffin ended with a strong 17-18 conference rrecord, but TU fell one game short of making the GLIAC tournament in only its second yyear in the league. One of the strengths Tiffin will have at its disposal will be a veteran coaching staff. B Besides Allen’s 20 years of head coaching experience at his alma mater, the Dragon dugout w will have the benefit of another Tiffin graduate, Kurt Rammel. Rammel will begin his fifth sseason with the Dragons, helping out with the catchers and the Tiffin hitters. Pitching coach Joe Wilkins returns to the TU bench after a three year absence. Last season, he served as an assistant coach for the NCAA Division I Pepperdine Waves. While in college, Wilkins was an all-Big Ten performer as a catcher for Ohio State and was named Most Outstanding Player at the 2002 conference tournament. Wilkins previously was a Dragons assistant for the 2006 and 2007 seasons. Tiffin will also have the services of sixth-year head JV coach Brian Coleman and student assistant Matt Rowland. With a veteran coaching staff and a mix of talented returners and newcomers, Tiffin will be gunning for one of its most successful seasons in program history. Infield and Designated Hitter The 2011 Dragons will have a position battle on their hands at catcher as redshirt sophomore Zach McCutcheon (6’1”, 165, Mogadore, Ohio) will battle junior Cory Osborne (6’1”, 205, Monroe, Mich./Mott CC). Coach Allen feels both have strengths in different areas, and that whoever most improves will get the starting nod. “We have Zach McCutcheon, who played for us a little bit near the end of his freshman season and did a pretty nice job,” Allen said. “He redshirted last year due to injury, but he is a good receiver and a nice catch and throw guy. He has to prove he can hit to get the starting nod. “Meanwhile, Cory Osborne is a bit the other way as he hits a ton but he needs to improve his defense behind the plate to solidify his chances for a starting spot,” Allen added. Junior Jordan Chiero (6’2”, 205, Gahanna, Ohio) at first base had improved a lot since his freshman year and is a big reason that the coaching staff decided to juggle the defensive line-up and move junior Pat Curtin (6’1”, 190, Cincinnati, Ohio) to a different position. Last season, Chiero made 39 appearances with 27 starts and was among seven Dragons who hit .325 or better. He went 38 for 103 (.330) from the plate with 31 RBIs, 18 runs scored and was second on the team with five home runs. “I am impressed by Jordan. He had a good year last season as a back-up and was actually a big reason we moved Pat Curtin to the outfield,” Allen said. Tiffin will lean on a talented newcomer to round out the right side of the infield. Freshman Connor Wendt (6’0”, 180, Genoa, Ohio) will fill a hole to begin the season, but he needs to continue to improve to keep his grip on the position. “We are still uncertain what we are getting from Connor as he is a freshman, but I love his progression through the winter period and he is a great athlete,” said Allen. “He needs to continue to improve on the technical side of things.” Consistency with the glove at shortstop is another area the Dragons coaching staff will need in 2011. Tiffin will give the nod to junior Val Helldobler (5’11”, 180, Toledo, Ohio). Helldobler started in all 49 appearances in 2010, helping out an explosive Dragon offense that hit .344 for the season. Val hit .303 for the season (47-155) and was solid with 26 RBIs and 24 runs. “Val is a very good player who we need to be a little more consistent with the glove. From the plate, I love what he has done with his swing over the course of the year thus far,” Allen said. Rounding out the infield is a player who Coach Allen feels will be the rock for the Dragon infield defensively, senior Colin Lowe (5’11”, 165, Waldo, Ohio). Lowe earned GLIAC Honorable Mention honors last year, playing in 52 games and hit over .347 and was second on the team with 38 RBI. “Colin Lowe is just the steady influence in the field and probably the most consistent in knowing what he can do,” Allen added. Finally, Tiffin will have the services of designated power-hitter and newcomer junior Carlos Garcia (6’2”, 235, Hilaleah, Fla./Central Ariz. CC). In 2009 with Central Arizona, Garcia hit .330 with 36 hits in 109 at-bats. “If Carlos locks in, he will be an RBI machine as he can hit. He hits for power and will be in a position to drive in many runs for us this season,” said Allen.


2011 Season Preview Outfield O The outfield may be the area where Tiffin took the greatest hit in loss of talent as 2010 GLIAC P Position Player of the Year Devin Rudolph, who hit an amazing .529 for 2010 and led the team with 555 RBI’s and nine home runs, is gone to graduation. Also graduating was senior Ty Blake, who eearned Second Team All-GLIAC honors while finishing second on TU with a .394 batting average, le leading the team in both hits (76) and runs scored (61). Despite the loss of two all-conference performers, the cupboard is anything but bare. In left field, Tiffin will have the services of senior Anthony Thomas (6’2”, 175, Cleveland, Ohio/Akron). “Anthony feels he is the fastest guy in the state, being the record-holder in the 200 meters in th the GLIAC,” said Allen. “He is a baseball and track guy and has really improved on the baseball ddiamond.” An infielder converted to centerfielder is senior Cory Hornyak (6’3”, 225, Genoa, Ohio/ Y Youngstown State). Hornyak was a Second Team all-GLIAC performer in 2010 with a .350 average. “In centerfield, we are pretty solid with Cory, who was a utility guy for us last year and was solid fo for us filling a hole at second base,” Allen said. Curtin will get the starting nod in right field after playing in the infield for the 2010 season for th the Dragons. He was also named Second Team all-GLIAC after finishing third on the team with 55 hits in 152 at-bats (.362) and led the team with eight stolen bases. “Pat is going to start in right field and is just really talented. What he brings to this team in hitting, pitching, base-running and defensively, he is one of our best players. “All of our guys in the outfield can fly,” Allen added. Pitching While Tiffin has many players that play in the field as well as on the bump, the Dragons will point to senior southpaw Donnie Smith (5’11”, 195, Johnstown, Ohio) to take the role as a starter. Smith earned Second Team all-GLIAC honors leading the team with a 5-5 record and a team-best 6.72 ERA last season. “Donnie is our proven veteran who is a lefty that battles,” Allen said. “All the names you can think of for a pitcher, he is that guy and gives you a great chance to win every time out.” Another starter is slated to be left-hander Curtin, who will also be a regular member of the TU outfield. Curtin went 4-2 with a 7.35 in 10 starts last season. Another starter is may be sophomore right-handed pitcher Kyle Pilbeam (6’4”, 220, Morenci, Mich./Jackson CC). “We are impressed with Kyle’s work ethic and what he has accomplished this year so far,” said Allen. To round out the four-man rotation will be between right-handers Hornyak and senior Kyle Klinker (6’3”, 200, Van Wert, Ohio). Both Hornyak and Klinker saw limited time on the mound last season. “Both of these guys give us a chance to win,” Allen said. As for the bullpen, junior Chris Pistorio (6’4”, 200, Orchard Park, N.Y./Canisius), sophomore Brock Mitchell (6’4”, 210, Bellefontaine, Ohio), senior Travis Colliver (6’1”, 220, Reynoldsburg, Ohio), freshman Kevin Kline (6’3”, 170, Stow, Ohio) and freshman Tony Naso (6’2”, 190, Amherst, Ohio) will play pivotal roles in 2011. Wendt could also see time out of the bullpen. “We have Chris Pistorio and Brock Mitchell, who we need to have a big year for us out of the bullpen,” Allen said. Senior Travis Colliver will be important for us, eating up innings for us in the long reliever role. Connor Wendt, Kevin Kline and Tony Naso are all freshman who will see innings and will be important out of the pen as the season goes on. “I am very excited about our pitching,” Allen added. Schedule Trips to Tennessee, Chillicothe, Ohio, Georgia and Florida before conference play, followed by 16 home conference games and 20 away games, highlight a 52-game regular season slate for the Tiffin Dragons in 2011. Tiffin kicks off the season Saturday, Feb. 12 when it travels to Tennessee to take on King College. King was a 2010 National Christian College Athletic Association World Series participant and is playing its first year in NCAA Division II. After its trip to Tennessee, the Dragons travel to Chillicothe before finishing out February with a trip to West Georgia. In the middle of March during spring break, Tiffin travels to Daytona Beach, Fla. to take on five NAIA teams for five games in six days. Besides the varsity schedule, five JV games will be played from March 13-18. The final weekend of March will kick off conference play. “We need to get off to a fast start so when we come back to Ohio, we will begin conference play at the end of March so hopefully our guys will get valuable experience before conference starts,” Allen said.


Tiffin University Baseball 2010 Honorees Tiffin University’s Devin Rudolph was named NWBCA Player of the Year, ABCA Midwest Region Player of the Year, GLIAC baseball “Player of the Year” and Daktronics Second Team All-American after his record-setting 2010 season.

Share the Pride, Build on Tradition is a $12 million comprehensive campaign designed to create endowed student scholarships, construct the new recreation center, and make other campus improvements. These enhancements, coupled with recent investments in new student apartments, the Tiffin University Nature Preserve, Paradiso Athletic Complex, and the Miami Street Improvement Project, will result in a total investment by Tiffin University of more than $30 million in the Tiffin community.

Campaign Objectives Recreation Center $9,400,000 The Recreation Center will consist of two connected buildings: a field house and an indoor practice facility. The connector will include a lobby and locker room facilities. Other Campus Development $1,600,000 Over the past several decades, TU has created a campus that not only reflects the University’s own growth and success, but also enhances the appearance and economic well being of the City of Tiffin. To continue pursuing the campus master plan, TU seeks $1.6 million for land acquisition, landscaping, parking and others amenities. Endowed Student Scholarships $1,000,000 Without financial aid, many Tiffin University students could not afford higher education. Since over 80 percent of TU students receive some level of aid, TU leaders seek $1 million to bolster the endowment resources of the University to create additional student scholarships.


The Tiffin University Physical Fitness Center Tiffin University baseball players enjoy using the Tiffin University Physical Fitness Center, yet another continually developing complex benefiting the student-athlete on Tiffin University’s ever-growing campus. The facility features a 3-cage fully carpeted indoor hitting/pitching center with an attached weight room. Along with other athletic programs, the Fitness Center serves an integral purpose in helping Tiffin’s athletes reach their peak potential.
