2010 PREVIEW

In an era of considerable change in intercollegiate athletics, the Southland Conference continues to be a model of innovation, stability and consistent achievement as it celebrates the academic and athletic accomplishments of its member institutions. What began as a small gathering of college administrators more than 47 years ago, the Southland Conference has transformed itself into a dynamic and respected consortium of 12 member universities in three states. Beginning with a historic meeting of five institutions in Dallas on March 15, 1963, that included current members Lamar University (then Lamar State College of Technology) and the University of Texas at Arlington (then Arlington State College), the Southland Conference set on an extraordinary course that has proven successful well into its fifth decade of existence. On July 1, 2006, the Southland Conference commemorated another milestone as the league membership reached 12, marking the largest configuration ever for the organization. The addition of the University of Central Arkansas and Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi expanded the Southland into the Little Rock, Ark., metro area and into the eighth largest city in Texas. Central Arkansas and A&M-Corpus Christi enhanced the Southland Conference in innumerable ways, including athletic and academic successes, strong and principled leadership, and strong fan support and media coverage. In addition to its two newest members, the Southland Conference lineup also consists of Lamar University, McNeese State University, Nicholls State University, Northwestern State University, Sam Houston State University, Southeastern Louisiana University, Stephen F. Austin State University, the University of Texas at Arlington, the University of Texas at San Antonio, and Texas State University-San Marcos. All told, the revised membership of the Southland encompasses more than 180,000 current students and an alumni base of approximately 920,000. Famous alums from Southland Conference schools include former President Lyndon B. Johnson (Texas State), former CBS news anchor Dan Rather (Sam Houston State), retired U.S. Central Command General Tommy Franks (UT Arlington), NBA executive Joe Dumars (McNeese State), ABC news anchor Robin Roberts (Southeastern Louisiana), country music star George Strait (Texas State), Major League Baseball stars Hunter Pence (UT Arlington), Kevin Millar (Lamar) and Ben Broussard (McNeese State), NBA legend Scottie Pippen (Central Arkansas) and actor Lou Diamond Phillips (UT Arlington). The cities of the Southland are diverse and progressive, ranging from international business and cultural centers such as the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex, San Antonio and the New Orleans area, to the historical cities of Nacogdoches,

Texas, and Natchitoches, La., to the home of the modern oil boom, Beaumont, Texas, to the unique Cajun French cultures found in the Louisiana cities of Thibodaux and Lake Charles. Southland Conference institutions also draw large numbers of students from the metropolitan areas of Houston, Little Rock, Baton Rouge, Austin, and Shreveport. The Southland sponsors 17 championship sports, all at the NCAA Division I level. The eight men’s sports include baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, tennis, and indoor and outdoor track and field. The women compete for nine championships in basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, softball, tennis, indoor and outdoor track and field, and volleyball. The conference earns automatic qualification to NCAA championships in baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s cross country, football, men’s and women’s golf, women’s soccer, softball, men’s and women’s tennis, and volleyball. Continuing its tradition of innovation, the league launched the Southland Conference Television Network in the fall of 2008 and has already broadcast nearly 70 events. In just its second year of production, the network has already received recognition for its work. It received a College Sports Media Award at the College Sports Video Summit in Atlanta in June 2010 for it production of the 2009 McNeese State vs. Stephen F. Austin football game, which was judged the best live game or event in its category. The network also collected three prestigious Tell Awards. Entering its third season in 2010-11, the network will expand its reach to roughly 6 million households throughout Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas. In February 2010, the Southland Conference learned it, in conjunction with the city of Frisco, Texas, and the Hunt Sports Group, would serve as the host of the NCAA Division I Football Championship game. The first of three championship games will be played Jan. 7, 2011 at Pizza Hut Park in Frisco, which has been home to the conference office since 2006. Frisco was recently named the fastest growing city in the nation. Southland Conference football ranks among the best Football Championship Subdivision leagues in the nation, and enjoys an annual expectation of competing for the national championship with multiple teams advancing to the NCAA playoffs each year. In 2002 and 2003, McNeese State finished the regular season ranked No. 1 in the nation, and advanced to the 2002 national championship contest, the sixth such title game appearance since the league joined the FCS in 1982. All told, Southland teams have played in 92 Division I playoff games in 28 years, winning 43 of the contests. Historically, the Southland’s successful football heritage

taken in the draft since 2000 and has 22 former players on NFL rosters to start the 2010 season. Among the former NFL stars from the Southland include Fred Dean, who was inducted to the Professional Football Hall of Fame in 2008 to become the first former Southland Conference player to earn induction in Canton. Other great NFL players from the Southland include Super Bowl XXIX quarterback Stan Humphries, Bill Bergey, Fred Barnett, Roger Carr, Marvin Upshaw, Larry Centers, Kavika Pittman, Mike Barber, Bruce Collie, Tim McKyer, Pat Tilley, Jackie Harris, Eugene Seale, Bubby Brister, Billy Ryckman, Rafael Septien, Buford Jordan, Marcus Spears, Terrance Shaw and Ray Brown. The Southland Conference has also seen its share of great coaches during its history in Maxie Lambright, Ernie Duplechin, Sam Goodwin, Jack Doland, Bennie Ellender, Bobby Keasler, Larry Lacewell, Bill Davidson, Dennis Franchione, Pat Collins, and Ron Randleman. While successful on the fields and courts, the Southland Conference has repeatedly demonstrated its commitment to the academic and athletic success of its student-athletes. In addition to football, the Southland Conference can point to a number of accomplishments in all sports. Men’s basketball has experienced a tremendous amount of success during the Southland’s 45-plus years. The league has sent two teams to the NCAA Sweet Sixteen, as well as a squad to the NIT Final Four. Basketball stars Karl Malone, Joe Dumars, Jeff Foster, Dwight “Bo” Lamar, Andrew Toney, Devin Brown, and Mike Oliver played in the Southland Conference. In 2006, Northwestern State, playing as the No. 14 seed in the NCAA tournament, defeated No. 3 seed Iowa, 64-63, in first-round action. In 2008, the league saw two postseason teams (UT Arlington in the NCAA tournament and Stephen F. Austin in the NIT) for the first time since 2001. Coaches such as Billy Tubbs, Mike Vining, Scotty Robertson, Jack Martin, Andy Russo, Bobby Paschal and Pat Foster have led teams in the Southland. In women’s basketball, the Southland also has its share of tradition with Louisiana-Monroe advancing to the 1985 NCAA Women’s Final Four, and Stephen F. Austin sustaining itself as one of the most successful programs in the history of the sport. In 2008, the Ladyjacks became the eighth program in NCAA Division I history to record more than 800 wins, joining Tennessee, Louisiana Tech, Old Dominion, Texas, James Madison, Ohio State and Tennessee Tech. In 2010, for the first time in Southland history, three league members advanced to the postseason as Lamar won its first conference tournament title and played in its second NCAA tournament. Stephen F. Austin was selected to play in its third WNIT and Texas A&M-Corpus Christi won a

has sustained itself through numerous membership and classification changes. Originally an NAIA conference, the Southland joined the NCAA College Division in 1968. The College Division was re-named NCAA Division II in 1973, and the league played two seasons in that class, before joining Division I in 1975. The Southland was an NCAA Division I-A league from 1978-81, before joining the ranks of FCS in 1982, its home ever since. During its tenure as a Division I-A conference, the Southland Conference was instrumental in the startup of the Independence Bowl in 1976. The Southland representative served as the host team of the bowl until 1980, compiling a 2-3 record in those contests. The conference can lay claim to five national championships, including College Division championships through former members Arkansas State (1970, UPI) and Louisiana Tech (1972, National Football Foundation). Louisiana Tech also won the first-ever NCAA-sanctioned national title, winning the Division II playoffs in 1973. Tech followed that with the UPI’s Division II national championship in 1974. Louisiana-Monroe won the 1987 FCS national title. McNeese State, which has made 14 appearances in the national playoffs, played in the 1997 and 2002 NCAA Division I FCS national championship games, while Stephen F. Austin played in the 1989 title game and has five playoff appearances, reaching the quarterfinals in 2009. Northwestern State has played in the playoffs six times, and advanced to the semifinals in 1998, while Sam Houston State has earned four trips to the postseason, including the semifinals in 2004. Nicholls has participated three times in the playoffs. In 2008, Texas State made its second postseason appearance in four years. Included was a trip to the semifinals in 2005. On four occasions, the Southland has placed three teams in the national 16-team playoffs. Six of the eight current football-playing members have qualified for the FCS playoffs. In addition, Texas State won NCAA Division II titles in 1981 and 1982 before joining the Southland. The Southland has produced 153 first-team football All-Americans during its history, and has sent such talent to the professional ranks including Oakland’s Keith Davis (Sam Houston State), Carolina’s Josh McCown (Sam Houston State), Buffalo’s Terrence McGee (Northwestern State), Kansas City’s B.J. Sams (McNeese State), Detroit’s Kevin Smith (McNeese State), Minnesota’s Fred Evans (Texas State), Tennessee’s Jacob Ford (Central Arkansas), and Oakland’s Luke Lawton (McNeese State). The Southland is one of three FCS conferences with at least 200 selections (202) in the National Football League Draft. The league also ranks third in the FCS with 22 players

school-record 24 games en route to its deepest postseason run, advanced to the semifinals of the inaugural Women’s Basketball Invitational. A Southland team has played in the WNIT 10 times, including each of the last four years. Women’s basketball all-stars have included Eun Jung Lee, Lisa Ingram, Portia Hill, Deneen Parker, Katrina Price, and Joskeen Garner, and coaches such as Gary Blair, Linda Sharp, James Smith and Linda Harper. Baseball has emerged as a huge Southland Conference strength with the league earning numerous national rankings and NCAA tournament berths. The Southland consistently ranks among the top-10 conferences in the country. Major leaguers such as Ben Sheets, Micah Hoffpauir, Hunter Pence, David Segui, Brian Lawrence, Ben Broussard, Chuck Finley, Jerald Clark, and Terry Matthews once played in the league. Former UT Arlington shortstop, Trey Hillman, a three-time AllSouthland selection from 1983-85, was manager for the Kansas City Royals from the 2007-10 seasons and coached the American League in the 2009 MLB All-Star Game. The 2010 Major League Baseball Draft was significant for the Southland as the league saw 17 players drafted pushing the all-time draft total to more than 400 selections (414). UT Arlington’s Michael Choice became the seventh Southland player taken in the first round, selected by Oakland with the 10th overall selection. He joins Ben Sheets (Louisiana-Monroe) as the league’s highest draft pick. The two are the only players in Southland history to be taken in the top 10 of the draft Jim Gilligan, who won his 1,100th career game in 2009, and Mark Johnson, who won his 1,000th career game in 2010, join an impressive list of coaches who have patrolled Southland Conference dugouts including Pat Patterson, Butch McBroom, Jim Wells, Smoke Laval, Dave Van Horn, Mike Bianco, John Cohen and Tony Robichaux. Softball continues to enjoy success on a national level, as the league has knocked off at least one nationally ranked opponent since 1995, with six wins over ranked opponents in 2010 including wins by Texas A&M-Corpus Christi and Texas State over No. 15 Texas. In the 2003 NCAA Tournament, UT Arlington and Texas State enjoyed unprecedented success as each won two games

in the national event. The league has also won at least one game in the NCAA tournament in three of the past six years. In 18 years on NCAA tournament competition the Southland has racked up 14 wins. The Southland has a proud history in volleyball as UT Arlington has represented the conference eight times in the NCAA tournament, advancing all the way to the NCAA Volleyball Final Four in 1989. In 2006, Stephen F. Austin moved to the second round following an opening-round win against Alabama. Track and field has also served as a proud asset for the Southland Conference as the league has produced numerous national champions and Olympic medalists. The Southland boasts 27 men and three women student-athletes who have won NCAA track and field national championships, including A&M-Corpus Christi’s Shadrack Songok (10,000-meter run) in 2007 and 2008 and McNeese State’s Brad Gebauer (pole vault) in 2007. The league has also produced U.S. Olympic track and field medalists Earl Bell, Thomas Hill, Al Joyner and Charles Austin, Liudmila Litvinova, along with other Olympians. With the addition of eight more All-American seasons in 2010, the league continues to find national success in both indoor and outdoor track and field. In the indoor circuit, the Southland boasts 60 unique all-time All-Americans that have won a combined 10 national championships. Likewise in the spring outdoor season, the league has seen 138 different All-Americans, including 110 men and 28 women, combine to win 20 national championships. Golf has traditionally been a strong Southland sport as exemplified by Lamar men’s golfer Chris Stroud, who finished third individually at the 2003 NCAA National Championship and is a member of the PGA Tour. Both Stroud and former Southeastern Louisiana golfer Hugo Leon competed in the 2010 U.S. Open. The league has sent multiple teams into postseason play on numerous occasions, including in 2009 as both Lamar and UT Arlington qualified for regional play. Additionally, during the past two seasons the Southland has sent eight golfers to compete as individuals in regional play with five in 2009 and three more in 2010. Lamar won a pair of NCAA Division II national championships in 1967 and 1968, and also produced PGA player

Ronnie Black. In 2005, Lamar’s Dawie Van Der Walt finished fourth individually and Lamar tied for 12th place at the NCAA Men’s Golf Championship, before the Cardinals tied for ninth in 2006 and tied for third in 2007. Former Lamar golfer Casey Clendenon advanced to the semifinals of the U.S. Amateur in 2007. Southland tennis has also experienced national prominence. UT Arlington All-American Andy Leber was the 2002 ITA/Ted Farnsworth National Senior Co-Player of the Year after a 43-3 record and earning the nation’s No. 2 ranking. In women’s tennis, Southeastern Louisiana won 46 consecutive conference matches during a four-year period that began in 2005. The conference has increased sponsorship and championship opportunities for female studentathletes in recent years, adding women’s golf and soccer as league sports. In 2007, Stephen F. Austin became the first Southland soccer team to score a goal in the NCAA tournament, while Texas State became the first women’s golf program to compete in the NCAA tournament. The Southland Conference has repeatedly demonstrated its commitment to the academic and athletic success of its student-athletes. With the F.L. McDonald Postgraduate Scholarship Award, the league annually honors one male and one female scholar-athlete with a stipend for postgraduate study. The Scholar-Athlete Award is given to each institution’s male and female student-athlete with the highest gradepoint average. The Steve McCarty Citizenship Award, initiated in 2005-06 and named after the former Stephen F. Austin athletic director, properly recognizes accomplishments off the court for a male and female student-athlete. Also, studentathletes with grade-point averages above 3.0 are honored on the Southland’s annual All-Academic teams and Commissioner’s Honor Roll. A record 934 student-athletes appeared on the honor roll following the 2010 spring semester. In addition to providing expanding opportunities for student-athletes, the Southland Conference and its member institutions are very involved in various community outreach programs. Many of these programs provide positive life skills training such as academics, citizenship and leadership to school-aged students in Southland communities.

SOUTHLAND CONFERENCE 2010 PREVIEW TEAM PREVIEWS 2009 REVIEW HISTORY & RECORDS

SOUTHLAND CONFERENCE COMMISSIONER TOM BURNETT Commissioner Tom Burnett was named the Southland Conference’s sixth commissioner on Dec. 23, 2002, and brought a diverse background in athletics administration experience at the conference and national levels. Now the second-longest tenured full-time commissioner in league history, Burnett is in his eighth year of service with the Southland, and has a conference administrative background reaching over two decades. Burnett has helped to enhance the Southland’s membership, with addition of the University of Central Arkansas and Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi in July, 2006. The new membership gave the league 12 member institutions, the largest configuration in the conference’s 45-year history. The league’s television exposure has expanded under his watch with the creation of the Southland Conference Television Network in 2008. This broadcast venture has since provided nearly 70 unique sports and promotional telecasts to a potential viewing audience of more than 13 million television households, and plans are underway for a third year of telecasts in 2010-11. The Southland also signed a multi-year agreement with the ESPN family of networks in 2005, and the league has had longstanding relationships with Fox Sports Net Southwest and Cox Sports Television. He also recently led the successful community-wide effort to bring the 2010-12 NCAA Division I Football Championship Games to Frisco, Texas, as the Southland will serve as host for the upcoming national title contests at Pizza Hut Park. A current member of both the NCAA’s Division I Committee on Academic Performance and the Division I Football Academic Working Group, Burnett also served as the FCS Vice President for the Collegiate Commissioners Association (CCA) in 2007-08. He is also a member of the Board of Directors for NCAA Football, the organization that serves to improve, promote and protect college football for those who play, coach and support the game. In 2004, Burnett also began the league’s renewed efforts to secure corporate sponsorships. Since then, the Southland has secured sponsorship agreements with State Farm Insurance, Capital One Bank, Toyota, American Airlines, Royal Purple Motor Oil, Best Western Hotels, O’Reilly Auto Parts, BellSouth, Aeropostale, Academy Sports and Outdoors, and Advantage Rent-A-Car.

He also initiated efforts to bring the Southland Conference Basketball Tournaments to a neutral site in the Houston area, giving the league a year-end celebration of the sport at a centralized location near much of the Southland’s largest alumni and student bases. Prior to joining the Southland, Burnett spent nearly 11 years in a number of roles with the Sun Belt Conference, including stints as associate and assistant commissioner, and director of communications. He also served two years on the staff of the American South Conference. His previous responsibilities included championships administration, public and media relations, television production and negotiation, scheduling, marketing, NCAA championship and committee service, and football bowl experience. While at the Sun Belt, Burnett worked in the development of football as a league-sponsored sport, and was an administrator with the New Orleans Bowl, which began in 2001. He also produced the Sun Belt’s television packages with ESPN Regional Television, which debuted in 2002. In addition, he has experience negotiating television agreements with regional sports networks such as Fox Sports Net, Comcast/Charter Sports Southeast and numerous local television stations and cable systems. He also provided oversight of Sun Belt championship events and administered well over 100 league tournaments. In 2000, he began exclusively administering the Sun Belt’s men’s and women’s basketball tournaments, which grew from minimal financial successes into events that grossed the conference $1.2 million over a three-year period. Burnett has also served in an administrative capacity with numerous NCAA events, including national championships in men’s and women’s basketball, track and field, baseball and volleyball. He represented the Southland Conference on the NCAA Division I Management Council in 2004-05, and served on the Division I Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) Governance Committee from 2004-06. Burnett previously served on the NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel, and the NCAA Baseball Rules Committee. Burnett, 46, is a native of Houston, Texas, and is a 1988 graduate of Louisiana Tech University, where he studied journalism and spent one year as the sports editor of the school’s student newspaper. He and his wife Tracy, a native of Baton Rouge, La., are the parents of a son, Cole, and a daughter, Jesse.

Entering its third year of programming, the network has affiliate commitments from 14 stations that will reach roughly 6 million households throughout Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas, improving the market reach of the network from the previous two years. “We are very excited about our expanded list of affiliates in the Southland Conference’s three-state region,” Burnett said. “The Southland Network has continued to grow and more broadcasters have expressed interest in our programming.

SOUTHLAND CONFERENCE

After claiming five regular season team championships, Stephen F. Austin has won its first Southland Conference Commissioner’s Cup. Stephen F. Austin joins UT Arlington (1998-99) as the only universities to win both the men’s and women’s all-sports trophies and the Commissioner’s Cup in the same season. The 158 points accumulated by SFA are the most by a Commissioner’s Cup winner since Texas State posted 175.5 points in the 2003-04 scholastic year. The combined five regular season men’s and women’s team championships are the most by Stephen F. Austin since 2005 and the 29-point margin in the Commissioner’s Cup standings is the largest winning margin in Southland history. The Lumberjacks recorded four runner-up finishes and an additional three top-five finishes. SFA won its first men’s all-sports trophy with 71.5 points after sharing the conference championship in football last fall. The Lumberjacks were second in indoor and outdoor track and field and basketball and came in fourth in baseball and cross country. SFA won its second women’s all-sports trophy and its first since the 1999-2000 season on the strength of four regular-season championships in basketball, indoor and outdoor track and field and a co-championship in softball. The 86.5 points are the most compiled by SFA since it scored 87 during the 2003-04 season.

TEAM PREVIEWS

The Southland Conference announces all-academic teams in all 17 championship sports to recognize those student-athletes who excel in the classroom and on the field or court.

SOUTHLAND FOOTBALL OFFICIATING BYRON BOSTON Coordinator of Officials

2010 PREVIEW

The Southland Conference enters the fourth year of its successful football officiating consortium with the Big 12 Conference. The Mountain West Conference is joining the consortium in 2010. Unprecedented in the annals of Division I football, the combined officiating program provides the Southland, Big 12 and Mountain West conferences the ability to train and develop officials in a uniform manner, and

build consistent philosophies on rules interpretations and on-field mechanics. A joint summer officiating clinic and an extensive system of film review also highlight the program. Long-time college and NFL official Byron Boston coordinates the Southland Conference portion of the joint program, and also assists in all aspects of the Big 12 officiating program. Boston, a veteran of more than 30 years of officiating, got his

collegiate start as an official in the Southland Conference in 1987, and joined the Southwest Conference in 1990. He is also entering his 16th year as an NFL game official, having called 14 playoff games, including seven conference championship games and Super Bowl XXXIV between the St. Louis Rams and Tennessee Titans.

SOUTHLAND CONFERENCE

SOUTHLAND FOOTBALL HISTORY 2004

Sam Houston State capped a successful season in what would turn out to be the last for 36-year head coach Ron Randleman. The Bearkats had the best turn-around season in all of Division I football, going from 2-9 in 2003 to an 11-3 mark in 2004. SHSU recorded the most wins in school history and notched its third Southland Conference championship in school history. The Bearkats shared the 2004 title with Northwestern State as each compiled 4-1 league records. Northwestern State received the league’s automatic berth to the NCAA playoffs after winning the fourth regular-season title in school history. The Demons fell in the first-round of the FCS playoffs to Montana. SHSU used an at-large berth to the playoffs and advanced to the semifinal round of the tournament for the first time in school history. The Bearkats opened with an impressive 54-24 win over No. 3 Western Kentucky in round one. They then had to overcome a 20-point deficit in the fourth quarter to win, 35-34, at Eastern Washington in quarterfinal action. Up next was a trip to Missoula where SHSU outgained the host Grizz, but lost the turnover battle. The Bearkats had four miscues while UM did not turn the ball over. The first three turnovers by SHSU led to touchdowns for Montana. Included were two interceptions in the first half, which led to a 14-6 halftime cushion for the host. The 2004 season marked the 12th time in the last 14 years the Southland Conference was represented by multiple teams in the 16-team NCAA FCS playoff field. Sam Houston State and Northwestern State were duplicates from the 2001 playoffs in a year when the Southland sent three teams with McNeese State also advancing.

2005

Southeastern Louisiana, a member of the league in all other sports since 1997, began Southland Conference football competition. Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Rita wrecked havoc on the 2005 schedule before Texas State and Nicholls shared the regular-season crown for the first Southland titles for either. The two advanced to the NCAA FCS playoffs with Texas State going all the way to the semifinals before losing in overtime to Northern Iowa, 40-37.

2006

With McNeese State off to a 1-3 start, the 2006 season looked to be in trouble for success. But a turnaround happened as Matt Viator was named head coach on Sept. 13, 2006.

20

Viator went on to lead the Cowboys to the NCAA championship playoffs by posting a 6-2 record in his partial season. He was named both the Southland Coach of the Year and the Louisiana Sports Writers Association Coach of the Year and was a finalist in the balloting for the national Football Championship Subdivision’s Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year award. McNeese State captured its 11th Southland regular-season title and fourth in the last six years by posting a 5-1 league record in 2006 to finish one game ahead of Sam Houston State and Stephen F. Austin. Southland newcomer Central Arkansas posted the best overall record at 8-3, but did not play a Southland schedule.

2007

McNeese State completed the regular-season 11-0, becoming the first Southland school to complete the regular-season undefeated since the Cowboys accomplished the feat in 1995. As a result, the school won its 12th Southland regular-season title. The Cowboys also hosted a first-round FCS playoff game, becoming the first Southland school to host since Texas State hosted three in 2005. The Southland won two games against FBS opponents in 2007, as Nicholls knocked off Rice 16-14 and McNeese State defeated LouisianaLafayette 38-17. They were the 14th and 15th wins against the FBS for the Southland since 2000. In the NFL Draft, the Southland had three players, McNeese State’s Bryan Smith, Nicholls State’s Kareem Moore and Northwestern State’s Demetrius Bell all taken. Smith was taken No. 80 overall in the third round by the Philadelphia Eagles, becoming the highest Southland player to be selected since former Cowboy Keith Smith was taken No. 73 in the 2004 NFL Draft. Lamar, a member of the Southland Conference in sports other than football, announces it will revive football after discontinuing the program in 1989. Lamar will begin play as an FCS independent in 2010 and will play a Southland Conference schedule in 2011.

2008

Texas State won its second Southland title with a 5-2 record after beating rival Sam Houston State in the regular-season finale. Central Arkansas, ineligible for the league championship during its transition to Division I from Division II, finished with a league-best 6-1 conference record. By

virtue of winning the outright Southland title, Texas State earned the league’s automatic bid into the FCS playoffs, where it collided with perennial power and fourth-seeded Montana. The Grizzlies went on to reach the NCAA Division I National Championship game after getting by the Bobcats 31-13 in the opening round. Three players – Central Arkansas quarterback Nathan Brown and defensive end Larry Hart and Nicholls State defensive back Lardarius Webb – as well as Central Arkansas head coach Clint Conque finished among the top 10 in balloting for the Payton Award, the Buck Buchanan Award and the Eddie Robinson Award. The Southland led all FCS conferences with four NFL Draft picks in April. It was the most drafted out of the league since five were taken in 2002 and brought the total number of draft selections to 25 since the 2000 season. Webb was selected in the third round by Baltimore, while the New York Giants selected Sam Houston State quarterback Rhett Bomar in the fifth round. McNeese State receiver Quinten Lawrence and Stephen F. Austin receiver Dominique Edison, were taken in the sixth round by the Kansas City Chiefs and Tennessee Titans, respectively. Another four players signed free agent contracts.

2009

Stephen F. Austin and McNeese State each finished 6-1 in Southland Conference play to share the conference championship. SFA won its third conference title and first since 1999, while McNeese won its 13th conference championship and its sixth since 2000. The shared titles marked the first time since 2005 the league split its championship. SFA beat McNeese, 16-13, to clinch the league’s automatic berth in the NCAA playoffs. The Lumberjacks, who were 0-11 in 2007, picked up the first postseason win by the league since 2005 when Texas State reached the semifinals. In its first appearance in the playoffs since its semifinal run in 1995, SFA beat Eastern Washington at home but lost at Montana in the quarterfinals.

FRISCO, TEXAS NAMED HOST CITY FOR NCAA DIVISION I FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP Frisco is the new host city for the 2010 NCAA Division I Football Championship game, which will played at Pizza Hut Park on Jan. 7, 2011. The 23,500-seat multi-purpose stadium will be the host site for the championship game for the next three years. “Touchdown! We can’t wait for college football to come to Frisco,” said mayor Maher Maso. “Frisco is a sports town and a Division I Football Championship is another chance for sports fans everywhere to not only experience great football but to also discover all our community has to offer. We also want to thank folks from all over the country who supported our bid effort.” The local organizing committee consists of the City of Frisco, its Economic Development Corporation and Convention & Visitors Bureau, Hunt Sports Group/Pizza Hut Park, the Frisco Chamber of Commerce and Frisco based Southland Conference. “The Southland Conference is honored and privileged to serve as the host conference for the NCAA Division I Football Championship Game,” said Southland Commissioner Tom Burnett. “Since beginning the planning process last August, our Team Frisco local organizing committee has worked diligently to bring this national championship to Pizza Hut Park. We also knew from the start our community would support this effort. Given all the built-in advantages of Frisco and the greater Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area, we always felt confident the NCAA would be attracted to what we were offering the game.” Frisco emerged from a pool of several cities that submitted bids to serve as the host site for the championship games, beginning with the 2010 season. The championship game will be the culmination of a newly expanded 20-team championship bracket. As a result of this expansion, the game will be played a few weeks later than in years past. The Football Championship Subdivision includes the conferences and institutions that compete in the NCAA Division I Football Championship, in addition to two conferences who choose not to participate in the football championship, the Ivy League and the Southwestern Athletic Conference. The FCS embodies a tradition of excellence through high level competition, student-athlete character and sportsmanship throughout the regular season and the championship experience. The decision to award the championship site to Frisco, Texas, was recommended by the Division I Football Championship Committee and approved by the Administrative Committee of the Division I Championships/Sports Management Cabinet. “We are excited about the opportunity for the football championship game to be played in Frisco,” said Damani Leech, NCAA director of baseball and football. “With the quality of bids that were submitted, it was not an easy decision to make. But we feel the right decision and right place to serve as the site for the Division I football championship is indeed Frisco.”

Southland Ushers in 47th Season in 2010 The 2010 season will be the 47th for the Southland Conference, which began playing with five schools in 1964. Lamar was 3-0-1 that season to finish ahead of Arkansas State, Trinity, Abilene Christian and UT Arlington. None of those five schools currently play in the Southland Conference, though Lamar resumes play this year as an Independent in the Football Championship Subdivision before rejoining the conference in football next season. The school is a member of the Southland in its other sports. UT Arlington has not fielded a football team since 1985. The season kicks off Thursday, Sept. 2 with a pair of games. Central Arkansas plays host to Elizabeth City State and Southeastern Louisiana is at Tulane. The first conference game will be played Oct. 2 when McNeese State visits Northwestern State in a game that will be televised on the Southland Conference Television Network. A full slate of league games is on the docket for Oct. 9. The final Saturday of the regular season is Nov. 20.

2009 REVIEW

Southland Among Hosts of Title Game The Southland Conference, along with the City of Frisco, Texas, and the Hunt Sports Group have been named hosts of the NCAA Division I Football National Championship Game for each of the next three years. The game moved to the Dallas suburb from Chattanooga, Tenn., after 13 seasons and will be played at Pizza Hut Park in Frisco, which is home to the Southland Conference office. The first game will be played Jan. 7, 2011, a later date to help accomodate expansion of the playoff bracket from 16 to 20 teams. More information about the championship can be found on page 22. Stephen F. Austin, McNeese State Aim to Defend 2009 Titles Stephen F. Austin and McNeese State each finished 6-1 in Southland Conference play to share the 2009 conference championship. SFA won its third conference title and first since 1999, while McNeese won its 13th conference championship and its sixth since 2000. The shared titles marked the first time since 2005 the league split its championship.

Southland Places Two Teams in 2009 Playoffs Both Stephen F. Austin and McNeese State earned berths into the NCAA Division I Playoffs last season. By virtue of its 16-13 home win over the Cowboys on the opening Saturday of conference play last season, SFA owned the tiebreaker for the Southland’s automatic berth into the playoffs. McNeese State, which had defeated No. 2 Appalacian State the second week of the season, was rewarded with an at-large playoff berth. It marked the 17th time overall and the first time since 2005 that the league placed at least two teams in the same playoffs. Both

Southland teams also opened the playoffs at home, marking the first time that has happened since the 1998 season. SFA Reaches Quarters, McNeese Surprised Stephen F. Austin’s appearance in the playoffs was its first since making a run to the national semifinals in 1995. The Lumberjacks, which were only two seasons removed from an 0-11 season, opened the 2009 playoffs with a 44-33 home victory over Eastern Washington, but it’s magical season ended in the quarterfinals in a 51-0 loss at Montana, a team that reached championship game for the second consecutive season. McNeese State also earned a home playoff game, giving the league two home games to start the playoffs for the first time since 2001. The Cowboys, however, dropped a 49-13 decision to New Hampshire, which went on to lose in the quarterfinals at Villanova, which defeated Montana to win the national championship. Southland TV Entering Third Season As one of the nation’s newest and innovative broadcast opportunities, the award-winning Southland Conference Television Network became a reality in 2008 and has broadcast nearly 70 events during its first two years. In just its second year of production, the network received a College Sports Media Award at the College Sports Video Summit in Atlanta as well as three prestigous Telly Awards. Entering its third year of programming, the network has affiliate commitments from 14 stations that will reach roughly 6 million households throughout Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas, improving the market reach of the network from the previous two years.

position at the college level. Sam Houston State also welcomed a new coach to campus when it named Willie Fritz the school’s 14th coach last December. Fritz, a former graduate assistant (1984-85) and special teams coach (1991-92) at the school returns to Huntsville, Texas, after 13 seasons as the head coach at Central Missouri. Coincidentally, Stubbs was Fritz’s offensive coordinator at the Division II school the last two seasons. Nicholls and Sam Houston meet Oct. 9 in the conference opener for both schools. Nicholls Adjusts Offense Under first-year coach Charlie Stubbs, Nicholls is moving from a triple-option style to a “MultiplePro” style offense that will feature more lateral, down-the-field passing. The Colonels enter the season with 10 wide receivers and five tight ends on its roster. Nicholls had four receivers and two tight ends on its roster at the end of the 2009 season. Of the 75 players on the Nicholls roster entering camp, 30 are newcomer and another eight are redshirt freshmen. Battle of the Piney Woods Moves to Reliant “The Battle of the Piney Woods” between Sam Houston and Stephen F. Austin will be played at Reliant Stadium in Houston, Texas, Oct. 23. It will be the 85th football duel between the two rivals. The series is the second oldest FCS rivalry in Texas. The Battle of the Piney Woods dates back to 1923, with Sam Houston State holding a 48-34-2 edge in the series. The next four games will be played at Reliant. Next year’s game will be televised by the Southland Network.

Central Arkansas Has Completed Transition The Bears have completed their four-year transition to NCAA Division I and will be fully eligible for postseason play this fall. Central Arkansas finished with a league-best 6-1 football mark in 2008 but was ineligible to win the conference title or participate in the NCAA playoffs during its transition. In three years as a member of the Southland Conference, UCA is 21-14 overall and 13-8 in league play. The Bears return 10 starters and 40 letterwinners in 2010.

Northwestern Drawing Inspiration from Rival To say second-year Northwestern State coach Bradley Dale Peveto did not like the result of his first season in Natchitoches, La., would be an understatement. The Demons were winless in 11 games last season, just like Stehpen F. Austin was in 2007. Two years later, the Lumberjacks shared the Southland Conference championship and reached the quarterfinals of the NCAA Playoffs. The schools compete annually for Chief Caddo, which at 7-feet, 6-inches and 320-pounds, is the nation’s largest football trophy. Northwestern State leads the battle for the trophy, 28-15-1.

UCA’s Conque a Win Away from Milestone Central Arkansas coach Clint Conque is one victory away from tying the school record of 74 coaching victories. He is currently 73-43, trailing only UCA Sports Hall of Famer Harold Horton (74-12-5). Conque is beginning his 11th season at UCA.

Texas State Riding Road Win Streak The Bobcats have won seven consecutive conference road games after going 3-0 last year and 4-0 in 2008. The streak is the second longest road win streak by a current Southland Conference member. McNeese State won nine straight Southland road games from 2006-08.

League Features Two New Coaches in 2010 Two coaches join the Southland Conference coaching fraternity in 2010. Nicholls named Charlie Stubbs its ninth coach in school history last January. Stubbs, a 30-year coaching veteran, moves to Thibodaux, La., for his first head coaching

Poised for their third consecutive winning season, the Bobcats are tied for third with Southeastern Louisiana in the coaches’ poll with each school receiving 29 points. The Bobcats were picked fourth in the SID poll with 31 points. Central Arkansas enters the 2010 season as a fully credited Division I university and is now eligible to win the conference championship and also compete in the FCS playoffs. The Bears have posted winning records in two of their three seasons during the transition and were picked fifth in both the coaches’ and SID polls receiving 27 and 29 points, respectively. The remaining sixth, seventh and eighth place teams include Northwestern State, Sam Houston State and Nicholls. Northwestern State was picked sixth in the coaches’ poll with 20 points, and eighth in the SID poll receiving 11 points.

2009 REVIEW

Stephen F. Austin, coming off its third Southland Conference regular season title and first since 1999, is favored by both the coaches and sports information directors to repeat as conference champions in 2010. The Lumberjacks, which shared the 2009 title with McNeese State, received seven out of a possible eight first-place votes and 49 points in each of the coaches’ and SID polls. Voters could not vote for their own teams. Southland coach of the year J.C. Harper and the Lumberjacks return 16 starters and 40 letterwinners, including senior quarterback Jeremy Moses, the 2009 Southland co-player of the year and senior defensive back Andre Banks, last year’s newcomer of the year. Stephen F. Austin, which finished 10-3 overall and 6-1 in Southland play, will look to record its first two consecutive conference titles in school history and a return trip to the FCS playoffs. McNeese State, which won a share of its 13th overall conference title, is picked second in both the coaches’ and SID polls receiving 43 and 40 points, respectively. The Cowboys, who received one first-place vote in each poll, have won six titles in the past 10 seasons and return 15 starters and 50 letterwinners including 2009 conference freshman of the year Malcolm Bronson.

TEAM PREVIEWS

Central Arkansas will have a different look in 2010 after the departure of 23 seniors from last year’s squad, including defensive end Larry Hart, who was drafted by the Jacksonville Jaguars and Brent Grimes, the school’s career scoring leader. Aside from inexperience and youth, a challenge facing coach Clint Conque will be blending five new faces on the coaching staff. If that was not enough, a challenging 11-game schedule awaits the Bears, who have completed their transition to Division I and are fully eligible for postseason play. Conque’s first win of the 2010 season will tie him for the most victories in program history. His current record is 73-43, putting him one win behind Harold Horton. On offense, the Bears will have a new starting quarterback for the second consecutive year after the graduation of Robbie Park. In fact, the entire starting backfield will be new as running backs Grimes and Leonard Ceaser were seniors last year. Conque, new offensive coordinator Matt Middleton and Nathan Brown, the school’s former record setting quarterback and new quarterbacks coach, will have options behind center. The only returnee with experience is Arkansas junior transfer Nathan Dick, who backed up Park last in 2009. Dick, who started several games at Arkansas as a freshman, should open fall practice as the projected starter. Wynrick Smothers, Jim Youngblood and Ryan Howard could also figure in the mix. Running back will be manned by sophomores Jackie Hinton, Terence Bobo and Anthony Blackmon. Hinton saw the most action in 2009, rushing for 127 yards on 20 carries, and also catching three passes for 40 yards. Bobo redshirted in 2009 after playing in 11 games as a true freshman and rushing for 135 yards. Blackmon played in eight games in 2009, rushing for 35 yards and catching five passes for 56 yards and a touchdown. The Bears’ receiving corps returns junior Willie Landers, UCA’s top deep threat, who missed the 2009 season to a knee injury. Landers earned honorable mention all-conference honors as a sophomore when he caught 44 passes for 735 yards and seven touchdowns. Senior Kenneth Roby, juniors T.J. Adams, Isaiah Jackson, Joseph Harris and sophomore Dominique Croom provide strong options at the wideout position. Jackson and Croom are the top returning receivers with 20 and 19 receptions, respectively, a season ago. The offensive line lost substantial talent in 2009 but does return two starters, including honorable mention all-conference selection Austin Emerson. Junior Logan Roubique, sophomore Corey Howard and junior Matt Dickerson all have starting experience. Rogeric Govan, Joe Lehocky, Nate Richards and Dominique Allen fill out the rotation. Defensively, the Bears lost their top three tacklers. The top returnee, junior linebacker Lamar Moore, had 50 tackles in 11 games in 2009. Also returning is senior Tok Opeloye and junior Jessie Sims. Rounding out the linebacking corps will be junior Frank Newsome and redshirt freshmen Justin Heard and Keaton Stigger. The Bears are just as young in the secondary after losing two all-conference players. The only returning starter is senior corner Henry Minor who had 39 tackles, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery in 2009. Junior Jerrel McKnight has experience at free safety, while sophomores Desmond Wilcox and Marcus Dumas have time in at cornerback. Up front, senior Markell Carter is poised for an award-winning season at one end after recording 11.5 tackles for loss and 6.5 sacks last season, along with 47 tackles and two fumble recoveries. Junior Trey Lippe will man the other end after moving from the interior line. He had 20 tackles with 4.5 tackles for lossas a backup in 2009. Transfer Jermayne Lett will figure in the mix as will freshman Taylor Schuyler from Bixby, Okla. On the inside senior tackle Hutton Andrew and senior noseguard Kit Coleman provide valuable experience, as well as sophomores Larry Duvall and Marshall Loyd. On special teams UCA returns second-team all-conference kicker Eddie Carmona, who will also take over the punting duties this season.

CENTRAL ARKANSAS CLINT CONQUE Head Coach Nicholls, 1983 11th Year Overall Record: 73-43 (10 Seasons) Record at Central Arkansas: 73-43 (10 Seasons) On Dec. 14, 1999, Central Arkansas selected Clint Conque as the man to turn its football program around. A decade later, Conque has not only turned it around – but has developed UCA into a player on the Division I level as Conque prepares to enter his 11th season at the Bears’ helm. Under Conque’s guidance, the Bears have successfully made the transition from NCAA Division II to Division I FCS. In 2006 – their first Division I season, the Bears exceeded expectations with an 8-3 record and finished the season ranked in the Top 25. They followed it up in 2007 with a secondplace tie in the Southland in their first full year in the league. In 2008, Conque’s Bears put together a season for the ages that will go down as one of the greatest in 100 years of UCA football. The Bears went 10-2 and had the best record in Southland play, finishing the year atop the league with a 6-1 mark. UCA finished the season ranked No. 11 in the nation – its second time in three years of D-I play to finish in the Top 25 – and Conque was honored as the Southland Coach of the Year and was named the American Football Coaches Association Region 5 FCS Coach of the Year. He was also selected as a finalist for the Eddie Robinson Award – given annually to the nation’s top FCS coach, and was awarded Honorable Mention for the Sporting News’ Coach of the Year award. The 10-2 record marked UCA’s highest winning percentage (.833) since 1989 and the fewest losses in a season since 1994. The 10-win plateau has been reached only seven times in UCA history and Conque – one of only two coaches to do so – has now done it twice in the last four seasons. Conque now has 73 wins in his career with the Bears – second all time at the school behind Hall of Famer Harold Horton. Since 2001, UCA has been Arkansas’ winningest collegiate program – going 70-35 to win 67 percent of its games during the last nine seasons with an average of nearly eight wins per year. Through three seasons of Division I play, the Bears are 29-17 and have racked up a 15-8 record against Southland teams. In 2009, UCA lost seven games by a total of 23 points. The Bears did accomplish something no other UCA football team had ever done before, beating an FBS team for the first time. UCA, two weeks after nearly knocking off Hawaii following the grueling trip to Honolulu, beat Western Kentucky of the Sun Belt Conference 28-7 on the road in Bowling Green, Ky. Conque currently has six former UCA players playing professional football, including last year’s fifth-round pick Larry Hart who was selected by the Jacksonville Jaguars with the 143rd overall pick, the highest ever for a UCA player. Two others, Jacob Ford with the Tennessee Titans and Marquez Branson with the Denver Broncos, are in the NFL, while Tristan Jackson, Taylor Scott and Aaron Fairooz are playing in the Canadian Football League. Under Conque, UCA has sent 14 players into the professional ranks with four players from the 2006 team alone landing on NFL rosters. Conque has seen his players earn all-conference honors 71 times, academic all-conference honors 23 times, and All-Southeast Region honors 17 times. Eleven Bears have been named All-America under Conque’s tutelage, and UCA has also had two consecutive Southland Defensive Player of the Year honorees, an offensive player of the year and an overall player of the year in the past three seasons. A graduate of Catholic High School in Baton Rouge, La., Conque played collegiately at Nicholls. As a senior, he was team captain and an Associated Press First-Team All-American at linebacker. In 1997, Conque was selected to the Nicholls Silver Anniversary Team and in 2005 was inducted into the Nicholls Hall of Fame. Following his time with the Colonels, Conque landed with the Los Angeles Raiders of the NFL only to have his career cut short by injury in 1983. He then returned to Nicholls and began his coaching career in a graduate assistant’s role. During a coaching career that has spanned 26 years, Conque coached two years in the Louisiana high school ranks, at Nicholls, McNeese State, Samford and Louisiana Tech before accepting the head coaching job at UCA. In that time, Conque has served under notable national coach of the year recipients such as Terry Bowden and Gary Crowton. In 2007, Conque was honored with the Johnny Vaught Head Coach’s Achievement Award by the All-American Football Foundation.

Others playing in the NFL are Marquez Branson with the Denver Broncos, Jacob Ford with the Tennessee Titans. Defensive end Taylor Scott signed with the Montreal Alouettes, Tristan Jackson with the Edmonton Eskimos and Aaron Fairooz with the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the CFL. • The Bears recorded their first-ever win over an Football Bowl Subdivision team last fall, beating Western Kentucky 28-7 on the road in Bowling Green, Ky.

HISTORY & RECORDS

Defense will be a strong point for the defending Southland Conference co-champion McNeese State Cowboys this season with all 11 starters returning. Actually, only 10 of those who started the last game of the 2009 season return, but linebacker Deron Minor, who was a starter at the first of the year until sidelined with an injury, is also back. The key for the Cowboys will be if the defense can carry the load until the offense catches up. And, a key to that side of the ball will be the quarterback position where four-year starter Derrick Fourroux graduated, leaving the competition for the starting signal caller wide open. Besides Minor, headliners on defense are expected to be tackle Desmund Lighten and free safety Malcolm Bronson. Minor was a preseason all-conference pick last season but was injured in the Tulane game and sat out the rest of the season. Lighten was a first team all-conference selection a year ago after ranking second on the team in tackles with 77 and setting a school record by recovering two fumbles for touchdowns. Bronson, a first-team All-Southland pick in 2009, received rookie of the year honors after he led the team in tackles with 89 and made two pass interceptions. Other returnees claiming all-conference honors on defense last year for the Cowboys are safety Darrell Jenkins, cornerback Seth Thomas, linebacker Geremy Pilate, ends Josh Ellison and Terrance Freeman. The other starters back are tackle Damion Aultman, safety Ford Smesny and cornerback London Durham. The only starters returning on offense are tackles Miguel Gauthreaux, who is also a returning all-conference pick, Taylor Johnson and center Mase Duge. Besides Fourroux, the Cowboys also lost All-American running back Toddrick Pendland, all-conference tight end Wes Mangan and all-conference offensive tackle Casey Richter. Champlain Babin, who rushed for 395 yards on six yards per carry last year, and Marcus Wiltz, up from the redshirt ranks, are expected to handle the tailback posts while there are four vying for the starting quarterback role. McNeese added some experience at quarterback during the summer when graduate student Jacob Bower enrolled. Bower saw playing time the past two years at Tulsa. Zack O’Quinn, Cody Stroud and Blake Barousse all got in spring action but none have taken a snap in a real collegiate game. Incoming freshman Will Briscoe could also be in the mix. Corday Clark, who caught 26 passes for five touchdowns last year, will step in at tright end and the Cowboys will have a good group of players at wide receiver including John Leday, Damion Dixon, Chris Royal, Deviontae Edmonson and Bernardo Henry. On the offensive line, Jonathan Landry and Marcus Bellow are expected to be starters as well. Josh Lewis, who booted eight field goals and 44-of-49 PATs last season, returns as the team’s place kicker while Ben Bourgeois and incoming freshman James Bice will handle the punting duties.

McNEESE STATE MATT VIATOR Head Coach McNeese State, 1986 Fifth Year Overall Record: 33-10 (Four Seasons) Record at McNeese State: 33-10 (Four Seasons) In four seasons, Matt Viator has become one of the most successful coaches in the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision. He has guided the Cowboys to a Southland Conference football championship and into the NCAA Division I championship playoffs in three of his four seasons as the coach at McNeese State. Viator’s 2007 team posted only the fourth undefeated or untied regular-season record in the program’s history. He won the conference title for a second year and participated in the NCAA FCS playoffs for a second consecutive season. Viator had taken over the head job four games deep into the 2006 season and went 6-2 the rest of the way to win the Southland title and put his team into the NCAA FCS playoffs. His coaching record is an outstanding 33-10 and his teams have lost only seven regular season games. In games against conference teams, his teams have a 22-5 mark. Viator has earned numerous coaching honors including two consecutive Southland coach of the year awards and a Louisiana collegiate coach of the year award. He has also been a finalist for the national Eddie Robinson award twice. He claimed his first collegiate coaching victory in his very first game as a head coach when the Cowboys posted a 30-27 win over Southern Utah in 2006. Viator is the 14th head coach in McNeese State history. He was 6-2 in his first season and 5-1 in league play, winning the final five conference games of the year.

HISTORY & RECORDS

2009 REVIEW

Prior to his becoming head coach, Viator, who is a graduate of McNeese, had served the university as offensive coordinator and is regarded as one of the top Division I offensive minds. The Cowboys have ranked among the national leaders in offense for seven of the past nine years and the university has also produced the Southland’s top offensive performer in three of the last six seasons. One of which was Cowboy quarterback Derrick Fourroux, who was named the 2009 Southland Conference Player of the Year. Viator’s offense has led the league in scoring six times and in 2008 set school records for total offense per game, passing offense per game and scoring average per game. Before he joined the Cowboys, Viator was one of the top prep coaches in Louisiana, producing an 81-37 record, winning one state crown and five league titles. He came to McNeese in1999 as a linebacker coach and was made offensive coordinator in 2000. The Cowboys led the league in both scoring offense and total offense that year.

TEAM PREVIEWS

Nicholls ended its 2009 campaign with two wins, both in conference play and against in-state foes, and will enter the 2010 season with a new head coach and a new offensive philosophy – a passing philosophy. Charlie Stubbs, a 30-year collegiate coaching veteran and author of three books on executing a successful offense, became the ninth head coach in the programs history in January. Stubbs has worked with some of the best to ever play the game, including many that have gone on to play professionally like Shaun Alexander, Isaac Bruce, Kennan McCardell, Harry Douglas and Brian Brohm to name a few. His knowledge of the game, tireless work ethic and astute attention to detail has come to land him the nickname “The Mad Scientist.” Nicholls will implement the multiple-pro offense in 2010 under Coach Stubbs, one that is geared toward moving the ball through the air latterly and with some witty innovation. Stubbs brings with him the ability to revamp and renovate quickly when it comes to schemes and executing, having overhauled Tulsa’s offense in 2003 to the No. 28 scoring offense in the nation – 73 spots higher then the previous season – and to an appearance in the Humanitarian Bowl. From there, Stubbs steadied the Golden Hurricanes during the next two seasons, capturing the 2005 Conference USA Championship and the 2006 Liberty Bowl. Nicholls returns two quarterbacks – sophomore LaQuintin Caston and senior Nolan Dumas – with each taking the majority of the reps at the position during spring practice. Caston led the Colonels under center for the last seven games in 2009 and closed out the season with two wins against Northwestern State and Southeastern Louisiana. Dumas, a career backup to the position, has only taken a handful of college snaps under center, including only one last season coming against Jacksonville State. Nicholls will have a crowded backfield with seniors Corey Buchanan, Brandon Johnson, and Earvin Moore, juniors Byron Jones and Kendrex Salter, sophomore Jesse Turner, and redshirt freshman Tyler Collins. However, those players only accounted for 14 percent (305 of 2,208 yards) of the Colonels’ 2009 rushing yards, and a mere 13 percent (413 of 3,529 yards) of the team’s overall offensive output. Nicholls enters the season with a total of 10 wide receivers and six tight ends on the roster, which is more than the Colonels had on the last two seasons combined. However, with the numbers high at the position, Nicholls enters the season with a receiving group that does not have a single player with a reception to his credit at the collegiate level with the exception of Donovan Tate who will redshirt in 2010. While the offense will have a complete makeover, the defense will still run the same multiple 4-3 packages it ran the previous year, but with a lot more creativity on the pressure schemes under second-year defensive coordinator Jeremy Atwell. The defensive forefront features five returning players from a season ago, led by senior defensive end Marquis Russell and sophomore defensive linemen Fernandez Garner and Darrell Brown. Russell leads all returning players on the defensive line with 27 total tackles and a team-leading 2.5 sacks in 2009. Nicholls will return a total of six linebackers from a season ago with two of them – senior Ed James and Jordan Piper – making huge strides in 2009, and also making their case to lead the team in 2010. James was fourth on the team in tackles last season, registering a total of 46 take downs (20 solo) that included 5.5 stops for a loss. Last season, the Colonels were plagued with injuries in the secondary and at linebacker, and it showed as Nicholls finished 2009 last in the Southland in total defense. However, when the entire group was at full health in the last three games of the season, Nicholls played its best defensively and led the squad to two victories. The group even held a fourth-quarter lead over Southland Champion Stephen F. Austin, forcing the Lumberjacks to come from behind for the win.

THE STUBBS FILE

Head Coach Brigham Young, 1978 First Year Overall Record: 0-0 Record at Nicholls: 0-0 Longtime college coach Charlie Stubbs enters his first season as the coach of the Nicholls Colonels. With more than 31 years of coaching experience and 22 on the collegiate level, University of Central Missouri offensive coordinator Charlie Stubbs was named Nicholls football head coach at a press conference on January 5, 2010, and is the ninth head coach in the program’s history. Stubbs, a native of Charleston, S.C., has been an offensive coordinator at a host of schools during the last 14 years of his coaching career that includes six years as an assistant head coach. Stubbs began his coaching career at Brigham Young, his alma mater, in 1983, and was a member of the coaching staff under the direction of LaVell Edwards that was earned the 1984 Division I national championship. Since then, Stubbs has been the offensive coordinator at Oregon State (19851990), Memphis (1994), Tennessee-Martin (1995), UNLV (1996-97), Alabama (1998-2000), Tulsa (2002-06), Louisville (2007), and most recently, Central Missouri (2008-09). At Oregon State, Stubb’s offense was ranked among the Pacific-10’s top-three each season, finishing ranked 10th nationally in total offense in 1987 and sixth in 1988. His 1996 UNLV squad was ranked ninth nationally in passing offense, while leading the WAC in 1997 and finishing that season ranked 12th nationally in the category. The coaching veteran also spent time in the Football Championship Subdivision at TennesseeMartin, where the Skyhawks led the Ohio Valley Conference in passing offense in 1995 and set nine conference records that season. Stubbs spent three seasons in the Southeastern Conference as the quarterbacks coach/passing game coordinator at Alabama. Stubbs’ offense led the Crimson Tide to appearances in the 1998 Music City Bowl and the Orange Bowl in 1999. Alabama also won the SEC Championship that season, and Stubbs was named the 1999 SEC Offensive Coordinator of the Year. In four seasons at Tulsa, Stubbs’ offense averaged more than 31 points per game, and ranked among the Top-25 teams in the nation each season. His 2005 season with Tulsa saw the Hurricanes finish 9-4, winning Conference USA and the Liberty Bowl with a win over Fresno State. Stubbs was also a finalist for the American Football Coaches Association Assistant Coach of the Year in 2005. His last stop in the Football Bowl Subdivision was at Louisville in 2007 when Stubbs guided the Cardinals to a No. 1 ranking in the Big East in passing offense that ranked fourth nationally. Louisville also was sixth nationally in total offense, guided by current NFL players Brian Brohm (Buffalo Bills) and Harry Douglas (Atlanta Falcons). Stubbs’ final stop before Nicholls was at NCAA Division II Central Missouri where, under the guidance of Stubbs, the Mules ranked first in the conference in passing offense both seasons. UCM finished 2009 with an 8-3 record and a second-place finish in the MIAA conference. Stubbs is also a published author, having three books published titled “Wide Open Football,” “Developing an Explosive Offense,” and his third book, “101 Special Plays and Playmakers,” which hit the shelves in January 2010. He holds both his bachelor’s and master’s degree from BYU, achieving a Bachelor of Science in 1978 and a Master of Physical Education in 1984.

TEAM PREVIEWS

It has happened before, and recently, in the Southland Conference. So, it can happen again. Not often would Northwestern State’s friendly but fierce rival Stephen F. Austin serve as inspiration for the Demons, but when it comes to football success, that’s exactly the case. In 2007, SFA was winless. Two years later, the Lumberjacks shared the 2009 Southland championship and reached the quarterfinals of the FCS playoffs. What looked from outside like a total collapse for the Northwestern football program in 2009, an unprecedented O-fer season, was far from reality. Instead of gaping cracks occurring in the foundation of Demon football, there were pillars for success established, standards set and put to the most severe tests. The Demons did not win a football game last fall, but they hardly fell apart. In four of the last five games, when a fractured team would collapse, Northwestern had chances to win in the fourth quarter, falling by a combined total of 23 points. It took four intense quarters for SFA to prevail 19-10 and claim its share of the conference title in the regular-season finale. “We’re not where we want to be, no doubt about it,” Peveto said during last season. “But you can either be a front-runner as a team and a coaching staff, or you can look it in the eye and work hard and keep doing the right things. We think our process is right. If you stick to that and don’t waver, good things will happen.” Everyone in the Northwestern camp is convinced that forecast will begin to hold true on the field in 2010. Fourteen true freshmen from what Rivals.com recruiting analysts rated as 2009’s top FCS signing class took the field for the Demons last fall, with half earning starts. That youthful experience will serve Northwestern well this fall and in the next three seasons. Northwestern returns 55 letterwinners in 2010, with 30 on defense despite having to replace eight graduated starters. Peveto and defensive coordinator Brad Laird get a boost with the addition of defensive line coach Jay Thomas, a highly regarded head coach who spent the last five years at league-rival Nicholls who was the 2005 Southland Coach of the Year. Anchors of the Purple Swarm’s 4-3-4 alignment should include second-team all-conference defensive end Ledell Love, rugged nose tackle Dennis “Tank” Landry, hard-hitting middle linebacker Derek Rose and veteran cornerbacks Jeremy Lane and Cashas Pollard. Seven offensive starters are back, including six offensive linemen with extensive starting experience from 2009 and before, providing a strong foundation for the Purple Strike multiple attack designed by offensive coordinator Todd Cooley. Northwestern used three quarterbacks last season. An injury ended senior John Hundley’s season in early October. Junior transfer Tyler Wolfe played gallantly with an injured shoulder all year but is now back to the level that made him one of the south’s more highly sought-after prospects as a prep senior. Wolfe threw for 307 yards and three touchdowns in his first action and only full game for the Demons against North Dakota. The returning starter this fall is true sophomore left-hander Paul Harris, whose run-pass combination gave foes fits much of the last half of the year. Preseason All-America offensive guard Michael Booker and preseason all-conference pick Zach Case lead an experienced offensive front. At tight end, playmaking Justin Aldredge is back after scoring both receiving and rushing TDs last year. Out wide, Cooley is counting on a horde of receivers led by 6-foot-7 Adrian Reese and speedy Bradley Brown, a preseason all-conference kick returner. In the backfield, junior Sterling Endsley was lost for the season before September last year with an injury after he had won the starting tailback’s job, and he’s back at 100 percent this year. Both kicking specialists return, sophomore placekicker John Shaughnessy and senior punter Bradley Russo.

NORTHWESTERN STATE BRADLEY DALE PEVETO Head Coach SMU, 1986 Second Year Overall Record: 0-11 (One Season) Record at Northwestern State: 0-11 (One Season) He’s a captain of enthusiasm, a human energy burst and a passionate leader. A documented coaching whiz on defense and special teams, Coach Bradley Dale Peveto, a.k.a. “Peve”, is in for the long haul, and he’s going to do it the right way. Those qualities have all been evident from the time Peveto strode to the podium in front of 250 people on Dec. 22, 2008 to shake the hand of Northwestern State director of athletics Greg Burke before making his first remarks as the Demons’ head football coach. Looking through his coaching staff, Peveto has blended highly accomplished Northwestern assistants with top-quality newcomers to Natchitoches, La., such as former Nicholls head coach Jay Thomas and former Central Arkansas offensive coordinator Todd Cooley. His staff has followed his lead and become very active and visible in the community and with Northwestern alumni and supporters. Peveto is a former LSU co-defensive coordinator whose highly-successful 22-year college football coaching career includes the Tigers’ 2007 BCS national championship and Northwestern State’s 1998 team that reached the semifinals in the Football Championship Subdivision playoffs. Peveto completed his duties as co-defensive coordinator and linebackers coach at LSU when the Tigers dominated Georgia Tech in the 2009 Chick-Fil-A Bowl in Atlanta. LSU’s defense shackled the nation’s No. 1 rushing offense in a 38-3 rout. Peveto is the 13th head coach in the 102-year history of intercollegiate football at Northwestern State. He was defensive coordinator for the Demons from 1996-98 under the school’s winningest head coach, Sam Goodwin. Northwestern won the Southland Conference championship and reached the FCS playoffs in 1997 and 1998, going 12-2 in the Southland and 19-7 overall in those seasons. The 1998 team, outright Southland champions, finished with a No. 3 national ranking after reaching No. 2 at the outset of the national playoffs, hosting three postseason games in Turpin Stadium before a fourth-quarter rally by eventual national champion Massachusetts halted the 11-3 Demons in a semifinal game. The 1997 Demons shared the Southland title by winning six consecutive games after a 2-3 start, capping the run with a stirring 38-21 home-field triumph over rival Stephen F. Austin, denying the Lumberjacks a co-championship and a postseason berth. Peveto has also been defensive coordinator at Middle Tennessee State and Houston, where he was also assistant head coach in 2002. He has also been part of coaching staffs at Arkansas, Southern Miss, Stephen F. Austin and Trinity Valley Community College. The Orangefield, Texas, native played in four bowl games from 1982-86 at SMU, where he was a safety, special teams star and team captain while the Mustangs went 43-14. With Peveto on the sidelines as co-coordinator and linebackers coach in 2008, LSU’s defense ranked 17th in the nation in rushing defense (110 ypg) and 32nd in total defense (326 ypg). In his three years as defensive coordinator at Northwestern, four Peveto’s players earned AllAmerican honors and four Demon players were selected in the NFL draft, three after the 1998 season. Under his direction, the Demon defense also set single-game records for fewest yards allowed, fewest rushing yards allowed, and most quarterback sacks. Northwestern also set school season records for most defensive touchdowns scored. In addition, the “Purple Swarm” also set season records for quarterback sacks in two of his three seasons, accumulating 52 in 1998 and 122 in the last three years. Peveto comes from a family with a rich football coaching tradition. His late father, Ed, coached high school football in the southeast Texas area and was inducted into the Greater Houston Coaches Hall of Honor in 1993 and into the Golden Triangle Coaches Hall of Fame in 1997. Two of his brothers, Jeff and Garey Birt, have coached at high schools in the southeast Texas area. Peveto is married to the former Melissa Weser, and the couple has a daughter, Payton Marie (7), and a son, Jacob Edward (4).

TEAM PREVIEWS

Willie Fritz, who has produced an overall record of 220 victories and 78 losses in a 28-year career as both a head coach and an assistant, takes over the Sam Houston State football program in 2010. Sam Houston will be putting one of the youngest squads on the field of any in the Southland Conference when the Bearkats hold their first session of preseason camp August 6. Twenty-six of the 44 players on the post-spring training two-deep lineup are either red-shirt freshmen or sophomores. In addition, 25 true freshmen will join the spring squad in August. Sam Houston has lost 32 of its 60 lettermen from the Bearkats’ 5-6 squad of 2009. “In some ways it was an advantage for us when we were recruiting last January and February to let players know what a great opportunity they had to see playing time next year,” Fritz said. “With only two starters back on offense, we’re definitely inexperienced. But these young players showed an outstanding work ethic during the spring and will continue to make progress as we move towards the season.” In Sam Houston’s 23 years in the Southland Conference, never have the Bearkats lost as many lettermen as the Kats have this season. The previous high was 28 in 1993 when Sam Houston went 2-5 in Southland action. Offensively, Sam Houston does not return a single running back who rushed for a yard in 2009. The top six receivers also are gone. Wide receivers Melvis Pride (seven catches) and Brandon Closner (three catches) and tight end T.J. Jones (three catches) return. Bryan Randolph, the backup to Rhett Bomar and Blake Joseph the past two seasons, earned the Bearkats’ starting quarterback nod in spring drills. Kaleb Hopson (6-foot-6, 290 pounds) and Cameron Pound (6-3, 295) were offensive line starters as freshmen last year. Chris Crockett (6-3, 283) and Travis Watson (6-2, 295), starters in 2008 injured last season, also are back. Sam Houston’s tentative defensive front four has Coty Gatewood and Edward Decambre at the ends and Marlowe Poitier and J.T. Cleveland as interior linemen. Will Henry and Kash David will man the linebacker positions. The secondary consists of cornerbacks Jarvis Pippins and Robert Shaw and safeties Darnell Taylor, Randy Stewart and Kenneth Jenkins. Henry is the Bearkats’ only returning allSouthland Conference player, receiving honorable mention honors in 2009. “Definitely, we have more depth defensively,” Fritz said. “We had several young men who had outstanding springs on defense.” Henry, Jenkins, Pippins, Taylor and Shaw all were starters in 2009. Jenkins and Henry led the Bearkats in tackles last year with totals of 87 and 71, respectively. Miguel Antonio, who led Sam Houston in scoring last year with 73 points on 12 field goals and 37 extra points, returns. Sam Houston State will begin its 2010 campaign with road games at Baylor and Western Illinois before the home opener with GardnerWebb on Sept. 25, a game that will be televised by the Southland Conferenc Television Network.

SAM HOUSTON STATE WILLIE FRITZ Head Coach Pittsburgh State, 1983 First Year Overall Record: 136-52-1 (17 Seasons) Record at Sam Houston State: 0-0 (First Season) Willie Fritz, who has produced an overall record of 220 victories, 78 losses and five ties in a 28-year career as both a head coach and an assistant, is the 14th head football coach at Sam Houston State University. The winningest coach in the University of Central Missouri’s 113-year football history rolled up a 97-47 record in 13 seasons as the Mules head coach. In 11 of those seasons, Central Missouri posted a winning record. He is the only Central Missouri head coach to produce eight consecutive seasons of seven or more wins. The Bearkats’ new football coach is no stranger to Sam Houston State. He served as a graduate assistant for Bearkat squads that went 16-6 in 1984-85 and won the 1985 Gulf Star Conference championship. He was the secondary and special teams coach for the Bearkats in 1991 and 1992, helping lead Sam Houston to a Southland Conference championship and starting a tradition of special teams success that lasted more than a decade. The “block party” saw Bearkat special teams block 80 punts, field goals and extra points in the 14 seasons from 1991 to 2004. From 1993-96, Fritz was head coach at Blinn College where he turned around a program that had gone 5-24-1 in its three previous seasons. Fritz produced a 39-5-1 record and two national junior college championships. In his final two seasons at Blinn, the Pirates rolled up perfect 12-0 records. For his efforts at Blinn, Fritz has been inducted into the NJCAA Hall of Fame. As head coach at Central Missouri, Fritz led the Mules to their first post-season berth in 32 years when they defeated Minnesota-Duluth in the 2001 Mineral Water Bowl. A year later, Central Missouri earned its first NCAA Division II playoff berth after winning the Mid-America Athletic Association (MIAA) championship. Fritz coached 152 All-MIAA performers including 41 first-team selections and 24 All-Americans. Fritz ranks No. 15 among active NCAA Division II head coaches in victories. In his 13 years at UCM, the Mules enjoyed an 84 percent graduation rate with three Academic All-Americans, 14 Academic All-Region and 144 MIAA Commissioner’s Academic Honor Roll selections. Central Missouri ranked No. 11 in NCAA Division II football attendance. Fritz was the second member of his family to coach at Central Missouri. His father, the late Harry Fritz, was the Mules’ head football coach in 1952 and later become executive director of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA). Fritz played college football at Pittsburg State University where he was a four-year starter as a defensive back and played on two conference championship teams. He was a student assistant coach for the Gorillas in 1982. Fritz served as an assistant football coach at Shawnee Mission Northwest High School in Kansas in 1983 and at Willis High School in Texas in 1986 and was defensive coordinator at Coffeyville Community College in Kansas from 1987 to 1990.

HISTORY & RECORDS

After posting its first winning season since 2004 and contending for the Southland Conference title for much of the season, Southeastern Louisiana is poised to take its next step in its historic return to the gridiron. With a roster that has strong veteran leadership and balance between its classes, Southeastern enters the 2010 season with a solid nucleus consisting of 51 returning letterwinners and 19 returning starters. With a staff that had mostly been together since 2005, the Lions have been able to gradually build their program behind a wide-open and unpredictable offense and a swarming defense. But despite having a new offensive coordinator (Allen Rudolph) for the first time in four years, there will not be any noticeable changes when the Lions have the ball. “Knowing the importance of not changing the system or the terminology because we have to much experience coming back,” Lucas said. “Now, it’s just plugging in the pieces with a different coach calling the plays. Everything has remained the same and that was very evident in spring practice. Our kids didn’t miss a step and picked up right where we left off.” Probably the biggest change for the Lions will be at quarterback as returning letterwinner Tyler Beatty and third-year sophomore B.J. Young will vie to replace Brian Babin, who threw for over 7,400 yards and 62 touchdowns in three years. Beatty, who transferred from Baylor prior to the 2008 season, enters his senior year with the most experience on the roster while Young, a promising third-year player, will make a strong push at becoming the Lions’ next signal-caller. “Both Tyler and B.J. are much more athletic and do more things as far as using their feet,” Lucas said. “Their mobility will allow us to do some different things offensively with our play installation. Whoever will be taking the snaps at quarterback in 2010 will have a stable of skill players to work with, highlighted by wide receiver and All-America candidate Simmie Yarborough. Returning letterwinners Andre Cryer, Kory Theodore and Greg Johnson will help solidify a strong receiving corp for the Lions while the sophomore tandem of Zeke Jones and Sam Fairley will give Southeastern a strong running game. An experienced offensive line that returns five starters, and is paced by fifth-year senior Kevin Hughes, will look to give Southeastern a more physical presence as it competes in one of the most balanced leagues in the FCS. With the return of 11 starters and experience at each position on defense, Southeastern will field its deepest overall unit since reinstating its program in 2003. Senior linebacker Mark Newbill (110 tackles) and senior defensive back Re’Keem Wilson (four interceptions) both return after each claimed first-team all-conference honors in 2009. Also returning for the Lions is 2008 All-American Tommy Connors, who earned a medical hardship after suffering a season-ending injury in Southeastern’s third game of the year. Returning letterwinners Ryan Godare, Nathan Clophus, Devan Walker and Avery Crooks are key players along the front seven for the Lions while Robert Alford, Curtis Strong and Clint Coleman will be key players in the secondary.

Head Coach Liberty, 1982 Fourth Year Overall Record: 14-23 (Three Seasons) Record at Southeastern La.: 14-23 (Three Seasons) Entering his fourth full season as coach at Southeastern Louisiana, Mike Lucas has continued to strive on a mission of molding a championship-caliber program through a heavy emphasis on in-state recruiting. One look at the Southeastern roster reveals a strong base of players from the Pelican State. Of the players on the 2010 roster, 65 hail from the state of Louisiana with 51 coming from within the state in the past three years. Under Lucas’ guidance, Southeastern has improved its overall record each season while attendance at Strawberry Stadium has steadily increased during the same time span. After leading Southeastern to a 6-5 record, its best mark since finishing 7-4 in 2004, Lucas was selected as coach of the year by the Louisiana Sports Writers Association and was later awarded with a new three-year contract extension. Paced by strong performances on offense by Brian Babin and Simmie Yarborough, Southeastern posted the third-highest mark in total offense (4,274 yards) and passing yards (3,112) in school history. Yarborough, despite missing two games with an injury, recorded 803 receiving yards with 12 touchdowns – the second-highest total for both categories in a single season. For the second consecutive year, 10 players earned all-conference honors with Mark Newbill and Re’Keem Wilson each earning first-team honors. Southeastern provided its fans with one of the greatest comebacks in school history as it rallied from a 24-point fourth quarter deficit on the road and edged league rival Texas State in overtime, 51-50. The Lions’ emotional win in San Marcos, Texas, their first victory ever against their league rival in 13 contests, gave Southeastern fans new excitement of what was to come and showed that the Lions were going to play the full 60 minutes. Lucas’ leadership was never more evident in the 2008 season when he had to step away from the sidelines for the final six games due to having a heart valve procedure. His first decision was to name then-offensive coordinator Tommy Condell as acting head coach – a move that helped the program maintain its stability. The Lions finished the 2008 campaign with a 5-7 record and were competitive in each game of a 12-game schedule that included Football Bowl Subdivision opponents Mississippi State and Louisiana Tech. Under Lucas’ guidance as Southeastern entered the Southland in 2005 after spending the previous two years as an independent, the majority of the Lions’ defensive numbers improved across the board despite facing a much stiffer schedule including a full-conference slate. Following the season, defensive back Charles Hall signed a free agent contract with the Cleveland Browns pushing the total number of defensive NFL signees coached by Lucas to eight. Six Lion defenders earned all-Southland notice while Duriel Adams was also named all-Louisiana. Although the hard work of the players, coaches and staff are critical, at least part of the Lions’ success in 2005 could be attributed to Lucas’ familiarity with the Southland. No stranger to the conference, Lucas previously served as defensive coordinator and assistant head coach for veteran Ron Randleman at Sam Houston State for 15 years repeatedly producing defensive units that ranked among the best in NCAA Division I-AA football and the Southland Conference. During his time at Sam Houston, Lucas guided the Bearkat defense among the top 15 in national defensive statistical categories 11 times and led the Southland in defensive statistics five times. The defense set several school records in his tenure including marks for most quarterback sacks (52, 2001) and fewest points allowed (13.2 per game, 1991). Under Lucas, the Bearkat defense turned out seven defensive players who signed National Football League contracts and two who were NFL draft choices. Lucas coached 41 defensive players who earned All-Southland honors a total of 65 times. Prior to joining the Sam Houston staff in 1987, Lucas previously served as defensive coordinator at Eastern New Mexico where his squad led the Lone Star Conference in total defense and scoring defense and ranked third nationally in punt returns. He and his wife, Wendy, have two sons, Tyler (23), a former quarterback and 2009 graduate of Cornell University, and Torin (21), a junior catcher on the Southeastern baseball team.

Defense TEAM PREVIEWS

Just two years removed from an 0-11 season, Stephen F. Austin made a complete turnaround winning a share of the 2009 Southland Conference title and earning the league’s automatic berth into the NCAA playoffs. The Lumberjacks reached the quarterfinals. Expectations are high entering 2010 as SFA returns eight starters on defense, and a high-octane offense led by fourth-year starter Jeremy Moses, who completed 385-of-566 passes for 4,124 yards and 40 touchdowns in 2009. A 2009 All-America selection, Moses enters his final year as the school’s all-time leader in completions, touchdown passes, passing yards and total offense, but he will be surrounded by youth at the skill positions. The Lumberjacks graduated their top three receivers, and top two running backs from the 2009 campaign, but that doesn’t mean SFA is void of talent. Sophomore Gralyn Crawford started all 13 games at wide out during his rookie season, and was one of the league’s top freshmen. Crawford finished third on team with 51 catches for 785 yards (seven touchdowns). He will be joined by junior Brandon Scott (6-foot, 191 pounds) and sophomore Cordell Roberson (6-3, 185) who will bring added size and speed to the position. Stephen F. Austin also has a stable of incoming talent, as well as a few coming off their redshirt season that could have an impact this season. The offensive line will look to replace four-year start Karl Glimp at left tackle and two-year starter Max Holmes at center. Despite the loss of All-American defensive end Tim Knicky and firstteam all-conference safety Cory Barlow, the Lumberjack defense should be just as strong in 2010. Anchored by two-time All-American linebacker Jabara Williams, SFA returns one of the strongest linebacking corps in the nation with all three starters back. Stephen F. Austin also returns three of four starters in the secondary which is led by 2009 Southland Newcomer of the Year Andre Banks, who totaled 65 tackles, two interceptions and six pass breakups. The one question for SFA will be replacing its defense ends, both of whom have exhausted their eligibility.

STEPHEN F. AUSTIN J.C. HARPER Head Coach Clemson, 1989 Fourth Year Overall Record: 14-22 (Three Seasons) Record at Stephen F. Austin: 14-22 (Three Seasons) In just three short seasons, J.C. Harper has transformed the Stephen F. Austin football program from a conference also-ran into a national power. Just three seasons removed from an 0-11 campaign, Harper guided the Lumberjacks to a 10-3 (.769) record, the 2009 Southland Conference title, a berth in the playoffs of the Football Championship Subdivision and a top-10 national ranking. It was the second biggest single-season turnaround at the FCS level, and the fourth-best turnaround in all of Division I. Following the season, Harper was recognized for his efforts being named the 2009 Southland Coach of the Year, and finishing second by only two points for the Eddie Robinson National Coach of the Year Award. It was the first time in 10 years a Lumberjack squad had earned the Southland Championship trophy, and it was the program’s first trip to the FCS playoffs since the 1995 season. Harper led SFA to double-digit wins for only the fourth time in school history, and the first time since its playoff run during the 1995 campaign. SFA hosted Eastern Washington in the opening round of the playoffs. The ’Jacks scored 44 points and recorded nearly 600 yards of total offense against the Eagles to advance to the second round of the playoffs. The Lumberjacks finished the season ranked among the nation’s top 10 in several different statistical categories including pass efficiency (10th - 142.72), scoring offense (sixth - 34.85 pg), sacks (sixth - 3.23 pg) and total offense (468.9 yards per game). Stephen F. Austin also led the nation averaging 343.69 pass yards per game. Throughout the course of the record-setting 2009 campaign, the ’Jacks recorded victories over three nationally ranked opponents, including two ranked among the nation’s top 10. The 2009 campaign saw 20 Lumberjacks named to the All-Southland teams, including five firstteam selections. Along with the all-conference teams quarterback Jeremy Moses was named the Southland Co-Player of the Year, defensive end Tim Knicky was named co-defensive player of the year and corner back Andre Banks received league newcomer of the year honors. The accolades didn’t stop at the conference level. Twelve Lumberjacks earned All-America recognition last season, including five first-team selections. Harper’s athletes have reaped the benefits of his time as head coach. During the past three seasons, 34 SFA student-athletes have earned all-conference honors, including eight first-team selections and 16 have received All-American honors. In addition to that, Harper has produced two league newcomers of the year, a defensive player of the year and a player of the year. Harper came to Nacogdoches as the defensive coordinator prior to the 2005 season. In his first year, Harper was given the task of guiding a youthful defensive unit through the rigors of one of the nation’s toughest schedules. During his second year on the job, Harper turned a defense that finished near the bottom in 2005, into the most effective defense in the league. The ’Jacks led the Southland in scoring defense, rush defense and total defense during league games in 2006. A 20-year coaching veteran, Harper was at Western Michigan prior to joining SFA. His defensive line was ranked third-best in the MAC in 2003. He also coached Jason Babin, a first-round draft pick of the Houston Texans, while at Western Michigan. Prior to Western Michigan, Harper spent four seasons as an assistant in the Southland helping Northwestern State and McNeese State to three playoff appearances. During his tenure at both schools, Harper coached the 2002 Southland Defensive Player of the Year, Roy Locks (Northwestern State) and an AP All-American (Jake Morrison). Harper also spent a season as the defensive coordinator (1997) and four seasons as the defensive line coach (1992-96) at Southwest Missouri State in 1997. Following a four-year playing career at Clemson, where the Tigers won three Atlantic Coast Conference Championships, Harper began his coaching career as a graduate assistant at North Carolina under Mack Brown and later served two seasons as a graduate assistant for Lou Holtz at Notre Dame. He coached in the 1991 Orange Bowl and the 1992 Sugar Bowl with the Fighting Irish. Harper and his wife, Marcie, are the parents of a son, Michael (4) and infant daughter, Emma.

TEAM PREVIEWS

Texas State enters the 2010 campaign looking for its third consecutive winning season and hopes of challenging for a Southland Conference championship with several new faces on offense combined with a veteran and improved defensive unit. The Bobcats won their first outright Southland championship two years ago and were in contention for another title until the final play of their 10th game last season. Their 7-4 record marked the first time since 1991 that Texas State had two consecutive winning seasons. The Bobcats also finished 2009 ranked 24th nationally in the FCS coaches poll and 25th in The Sports Network poll to mark the first time in school history the Bobcats were nationally ranked in back-to-back seasons as an NCAA Division I school. Texas State also posted a 5-2 record against conference opponents for the second consecutive season. Nine defensive players who started for the Bobcats at six different positions are returning for 2010. They include Ron Jackson and Adley Eshraghipour on the defensive line; Marcus Clark and Bryan Iwuji at linebacker; along with T.P Miller, Darryl Morris, Derek Lopez, Kenneth Hampton and Mario Wiggins in the secondary. A transfer from Arizona, Jackson began his career with the Bobcats as starting defensive end. He led the Bobcats in quarterback sacks with four to go along with his 37 tackles. Last season, Eshraghipour also stepped in as a starting defensive tackle earning honorable mention all-conference honors with 42 tackles and tied for the team lead with two fumble recoveries as a defensive tackle. This season, Wright is looking for senior Sam Pier to take over as a starter at the bandit end. Pier won the nod last spring after playing on special teams and serving as a reserve end each of the past two seasons. Senior Leon Woolsey also provides experienced depth at defensive end. Clark and Iwuji started all 11 games in 2009. Clark led the team in tackles with 95, including eight tackles for loss and two quarterback sacks. Clark also intercepted one pass, broke up two others and leads the returning players with five quarterback hurries. Iwuji was second on the team in tackles with 67 in his first season as a full-time starter at the Will linebacker post. In the secondary, Darryl Morris started the last eight games of the season at cornerback and broke up six passes to lead the Bobcats. He also registered 40 tackles. Lopez started three games and saw action in all 11 contests. He registered 30 tackles and ranked second among team leaders after breaking up five passes. The Bobcats have senior Drenard Williams returning as a former starting cornerback after he sat out the 2009 season with an injury. Williams recorded 39 tackles and broke up nine passes to lead the Bobcats while making 12 starts in 2008. Texas State’s new look on offense includes a new co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, and new starters at both offensive tackle, tight end, running back and quarterback positions. Slade Nagle comes to Texas State as a co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach after serving on LSU’s coaching staff in 2009. The other offensive coordinator is assistant head coach Ben Norton, who coaches the Bobcat offensive line. When preseason camp opens, all eyes will be focused on the quarterback position, where the Bobcats must replace Bradley George, a record-setting four-year starter. Sophomore Tim Hawkins stepped forward last spring and enters fall drills as the top candidate to replace George. An athletic quarterback, Hawkins served as George’s backup in 2010. Heading the list of playmakers is record-setting wide receiver Da’Marcus Griggs who is returning for his senior season. Griggs caught 80 passes for 969 yards and eight touchdowns while earning second-team all-conference honors last season. He broke Cameron Luke’s 2008 record of 72 catches. Wright also looks for sophomore Frank Reddic and redshirt freshman Dexter Imade to take over at running back. Reddic gained 206 yards and scored six touchdowns on 53 carries last season as a true freshman after rushing for over 2,000 yards and 22 touchdowns in high school. Before he sat out last season as a redshirt, Imade rushed for 1,515 yards and 14 touchdowns his senior year of high school.

TEXAS STATE BRAD WRIGHT Head Coach Texas State, 1981 Fourth Year Overall Record: 19-16 (Three Seasons) Record at Texas State: 19-16 (Three Seasons) Throughout his playing and coaching career at Texas State, Brad Wright has helped change the course of the school’s football history. As a player, he capped off his college career in 1980 helping Texas State win its first outright conference championship in 17 years. As an associate head coach in 2005, he helped lead the Bobcats to a Southland Conference co-championship and Texas State’s first NCAA Division I FCS playoff berth. Then, in his first three seasons as head coach, he guided Texas State to its first outright conference championship since 1982, first back-to-back winning seasons since 1991-92 and now, in 2010, looks to lead his team to a third consecutive winning season for the first time since 1984. Wright’s first season in 2007, the Bobcats featured a high-powered offensive attack that ranked 18th nationally in total offense and produced a 2,000-yard passer, 1,000-yard rusher and a 1,000-yard receiver in the same season for the first time in school history. In 2008, Texas State won its first non-conference road win since 2001 and the Bobcats clinched the league title with their first overtime win since 2005 with a 48-45 victory at Sam Houston State in the final regular season game. The victory at Sam Houston also set a school record for most road wins as an NCAA Division I FCS school with five. Texas State’s offense was even more powerful in its second year under Wright’s direction as the Bobcats boasted the nation’s seventh-ranked scoring offense and eighth-ranked overall total offense with averages of 36 points and 453 yards per game. Texas State also tied for 10th in red-zone offensive efficiency and featured a 2,000-yard passer, 1,000-yard runner and a 1,000-yard receiver for the second consecutive season. Bradley George became the first Texas State quarterback in school history to throw for 2,000 yards in two consecutive seasons as he threw for 2,660 yards and 26 touchdowns in 2008. His favorite target Cameron Luke set a school record for most receiving yards in a season with 1,268 yards and tied another record for most touchdowns scored in a season (17). He also became the only receiver in Southland history to catch 10 touchdown passes in back-to-back seasons. In his third season as head coach, Wright led his troops to a second consecutive winning season with a 7-4 record and had the Bobcats in contention for another Southland championship until the final game of the regular season. Texas State posted a 5-2 conference record for the second consecutive year, giving the Bobcats their best back-to-back conference finishes and most conference wins in a two-year period since joining the Southland in 1987. Texas State ended the 2009 season ranked 24th by the FCS Coaches and 25th in the Sports Network poll, marking the first time in school history that the Bobcats finished two consecutive seasons ranked in the national polls. Individually, George capped off his record-setting career being named the Southland Conference Offensive Player of the Year and Student-Athlete of the Year. George ended the season completing 258-of-409 passes for 3,121 yards and 23 touchdowns, making him the only Bobcat quarterback to top 2,000 yards in three consecutive seasons. He ended his career as Texas State’s all-time career leader as he completed 753-of-1,277 passes for 9,556 yards and 76 touchdowns. After signing a new three-year contract, Wright enters the 2010 season looking to lead the Bobcats to their third straight winning campaign and contending for their third Southland Conference championship since 2005. Wright’s association with winning at Texas State dates back to the late 1970s when he originally walked on to the Bobcat football program as a wide receiver before starting one season at running back and then moving to the defensive side of the ball under Bobcat coaches Bill Miller and Jim Wacker. He was a two-year starter at free safety for Texas State and was a defensive leader on the 1980 Lone Star Conference championship team. After working two seasons at Louisiana-Lafayette, Wright enjoyed a highly successful tenure as a high school coach in Texas with stops in Karnes City, East Bernard and New Braunfels. Wright earned his bachelor’s degree in physical education from Texas State in 1981. He is married to the former Kim Pesek, a 1996 Texas State alum, and they have a daughter, Paige.

HISTORY & RECORDS

Win or lose, the 2010 will be an historic season for Lamar University. For the first time since the finale of the 1989 season, a 22-17 home victory over McNeese State, Cardinal fans will have the chance to watch Lamar play football. The Cardinals will play a full 11-game schedule that opens, ironically enough, against their last opponent, McNeese State. Lamar will play its first home game in more than two decades the following weekend against Webber International in the renovated Provost Umphrey Stadium. Former NFL player Ray Woodard holds the reins of the Lamar program. Woodard came to Beaumont after one highly successful season as the coach at Navarro College, and prior to that spent several seasons as a coach and defensive coordinator at both the college and professional levels. Woodard and his staff have signed two recruiting classes with several players spending the past school year on campus waiting for the opportunity to perform in a live game in front of the Cardinal faithful. The rosters features a mix of Division I transfers, junior college signees and freshmen. Lamar will run a multiple-set offense which will allow the Cardinals to utilize a mobile quarterback and speed at the receiver position. More often than not Lamar will line up with only one running back. Directing the Cardinal offense will be junior quarterback Andre Bevil, who is entering his fourth season playing for Coach Woodard. Bevil, who played two seasons at Navarro College, will use a strong, accurate arm and an elusive running style to lead the Cardinals. Receivers J.J. Hayes, Barry Ford, Donte Lopez, Marcus Jackson, Josh Powdrill and Brent Walters will help stretch the field, while tight ends Billy Chavis and Kevin Davis will provide large targets. The running back position may be the biggest question mark for the Lamar offense coming out of spring practice. Freshmen Jordan Nixon, Caleb Harmon and Keaton Parker, and senior transfer Kwabena Asante will battle for carries in the backfield. Lamar will utilize a 4-3 formation on defense that will also have the flexibility to adapt to the different styles of offense that the Cardinals will face. It should prove to be an aggressive, attacking unit. Junior transfer Mario Foster and redshirt freshman Jesse Dickson will lead an aggressive defensive line that will apply pressure to opposing quarterbacks. At 6-foot-2 and 312 pounds, Texas A&M transfer Adren Dorsey is the largest of the Cardinals on defense. Jonathan Epke will be leaned upon to lead the Lamar linebacking corp. Former Beaumont West Brook teammates Jordan Garrett and Jacody Coleman have transferred back to their hometown university to add experience. The defensive backfield is inexperienced at the college level, but continued to make solid strides throughout the spring season. Redshirt freshman Branden Thomas has proven himself to be a player to watch during his first year on the Lamar campus. The specials teams units are the most unproven group on the team as there are all new faces at the key positions. It is an area that will have to be shored up before the season opener and will have more changes than any other phase of the team.

LAMAR RAY WOODARD Head Coach Sam Houston State, 1988 First Season Overall Record: 9-3 (One Season) Record at Lamar: 0-0 (First Season) Ray Woodard is a huge man – 6-foot-6 and 290 pounds, to be exact – who has taken on a huge challenge – that of reviving Lamar University’s football program. Woodard’s challenge is to return to Lamar, to Beaumont and to Southeast Texas the excitement that accompanies a competitive collegiate football team. Woodard, who was named the eighth football coach on June 19, 2008, has gotten off to a good start in two years on campus, assembling a staff of experienced and enthusiastic coaches. Their efforts have helped Lamar sign its first two recruiting classes since 1989, the final season of Cardinal football. Woodard came to Lamar after three seasons at Navarro College – the first two as defensive coordinator and the final season as head coach. His 2007 squad went 9-3 and advanced to the conference playoffs for the first time in six seasons. Navarro defeated defending national champion Blinn College on consecutive weeks before rolling past Kilgore. Navarro claimed a 24-21 win over Georgia Military in the Pilgrim’s Pride Bowl to finish the year ranked fourth in the NJCAA national poll. For his efforts, Woodard was named the SWJCFC Coach of the Year. Navarro ranked third nationally in total offense (444.6 yards per game), fourth in rushing offense (250.5 ypg) and 16th in passing offense (194.2 yards per game), while scoring a school-record 428 points for an average of 35.7 per game in 2007. Woodard spent four seasons as a defensive coordinator in NFL Europe, one season with the Frankfurt Galaxy and three with the Scottish Claymores. Woodard made a strong first impression in NFL Europe as his Galaxy ranked first in the league in total defense and led the league in five other defensive categories. Woodard’s other professional coaching experience came as the general manager/head coach for the Houston Outlaws (1999-2000) of the Regional Football League and as defensive coordintor of the Texas Terror (1996) of the Arena Football League. Woodard’s first experience at the NCAA level came in 1998 when he was the defensive line coach at Louisiana-Lafayette. Lineman Danny Scott registered eight sacks, which ranks fourth in the ULL single-season list. From 1988-95 Woodard was the defensive coordinator at Kilgore College and recruited more than 200 Texas high school student-athletes. The Rangers appeared in back-to-back Shrine Bowls in 1989 and 1990. Kilgore had a 9-2 record in 1990, won the conference championship and was ranked as high as No. 6 in the country. Woodard also had a very successful playing career, from his days at Corrigan-Camden High School to Kilgore College and the University of Texas to five years in the NFL. A four-sport letterman at Corrigan-Camden High School from 1975-79, Woodard was a two-time All-America selection as a defensive tackle at Kilgore College from 1980-81. The Rangers finished the 1980 season with a 10-1 record and won the TJCFC Championship. Woodard then finished his college career at the University of Texas under coach Fred Akers. The 1982 team went 9-3 and finished the season ranked 17th nationally. As a senior in 1983, Woodard and the Longhorns posted a perfect 11-0 regular season mark, captured the Southwest Conference championship and finished the season ranked fifth in the nation. Texas led the nation in total defense, yielding just 212 ypg along with 9.5 ppg. Woodard was then selected in the eighth round of the 1984 NFL Draft by the San Diego Chargers. He spent the next five seasons with the Chargers, Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs. He was a member of the Broncos’ 1986 Super Bowl team. Woodard received his bachelor’s degree in kinesiology and history from Sam Houston State University in 1988 and his master’s in education from the University of Texas at Tyler in 1991. Woodard and the former Penne Streidel have been married since March 1982. The couple has a daughter, Jessica.

STEPHEN F. AUSTIN, McNEESE STATE SHARE TITLE Stephen F. Austin and McNeese State each finished 6-1 in Southland Conference play to share the 2009 conference championship. SFA won its third conference title and first since 1999, while McNeese won its 13th conference championship and its sixth since 2000. The shared titles marked the first time since 2005 the league split its championship. After opening the season with a loss at SMU in the closing minutes of the game, the Lumberjacks won their next six games, including their first three in conference play before suffering their only league defeat at Texas State. SFA won its last three games, including a 19-10 victory at Northwestern State in the regular-season finale. That win, combined with the team’s win at McNeese State to open conference play, solidified the comeback from an 0-11 season just two years earlier and clinched the Southland’s automatic berth into the NCAA playoffs. McNeese State began its season with three consecutive wins before dropping consecutive road games at Tulane and Stephen F. Austin, but the Cowboys regrouped and won their final six games of the regular season, including a 21-17 win over Central Arkansas in the season finale, to earn an share of the conference title. The Cowboys earned an at-large bid into the FCS playoffs. Stephen F. Austin’s appearance in the playoffs was its first since making a run to the national semifinals in 1995. The Lumberjacks opened the 2009 playoffs with a 44-33 home victory over Eastern Washington, but it’s magical season ended in the quarterfinals in a 51-0 loss at Montana, a team that reached championship game for the second consecutive season. McNeese State also earned a home playoff game, giving the league two home games to start the playoffs for the first time since 2001. The Cowboys, however, dropped a 49-13 decision to New Hampshire, which went on to lose in the quarterfinals at Villanova, which defeated Montana to win the national championship. Stephen F. Austin and McNeese State accounted for 24 of the 52 spots on the all-conference teams. SFA led all teams with 14 selections while 10 Cowboys earned a spots on the teams. The quarterbacks of each team shared player of the year honors, while Lumberjack defensive end Tim Knicky, a Walter Camp All-American and FCS Academic All-Star, was the co-defensive player of the year. McNeese freshman Malcolm Bronson was the freshman of the year while SFA’s Andre Banks was the conference’s top newcomer. Lumberjack coach J.C. Harper was the coach of the year and finished second in balloting for the national Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year Award.

2010 PREVIEW

McNeese State, 2009 Southland Conference Co-Champion

In what will go down as one of the closest ballots in award history, Stephen F. Austin coach J.C. Harper finished second to Prairie View A&M’s Henry Frazier III for the Eddie Robinson Award, given annually to the nation’s top coach in the Football Championship Subdivision. Harper finished second to Frazier by a total of two points. “It’s truly an honor just to be considered for the award,” Harper said. “I’m blessed to be surrounded by great people. I have a great staff that works very hard to make sure that SFA is the best it can be. Our senior leadership was tremendous this year. This program is surrounded by an administrative staff led by our university president Dr. Baker Pattillo and director of athletics Robert Hill, who are all committed to winning. I could not be considered for the award without all of these factors.” After an 0-11 campaign during his first season as head coach in 2007, Harper began the process of building the Lumberjack program. In just two short seasons, Harper took SFA from worst to first winning the Southland Conference title, and putting the program in the FCS playoffs for the first time since the 1995 season. SFA finished the year with a 10-3 overall record and advanced to the quarterfinals of the playoffs. It was only the fourth time in school history that SFA has reached double-figure wins in a season, and the first time since 1995. Following the season SFA placed 20 athletes on the 2009 All-Southland Conference teams, including the Southland Co-Player, Co-Defensive Player, and Newcomer of the Year awards. Harper also became the second coach in school history to be named Southland Coach of the Year.
