The Laycock Football Complex The Athletics Department put a fitting exclamation point on what was head coach Jimmye Laycock’s 25th season in 2004, announcing plans for a 30,000square foot football complex that will bear the longtime mentor’s name. The Jimmye Laycock Football Complex will be located at the northwest corner of the stadium on what is the Tribe’s football practice field at a cost of $11 million. In what could be the most exciting aspect of all, the entire funding of the project will be provided by private gifts. The complex will provide a new home for team and coaches lockers, an athletic training room, an equipment storage area, coaches offices, conference rooms, and administrative support areas – as well as an entrance that will include a Tribe Football Hall of Fame space. The project is scheduled to be finished in the fall of 2007. The two-story football complex was designed by Moseley Architects out of Virginia Beach and HOK Sport, an internationally renowned architectural firm based in Kansas City, Mo., whose clients include sports venues at nearly every level, including Oriole Park at Camden Yards. Officials worked closely with the building designers to ensure the complex complements the architecture of Zable Stadium and conforms to the campus design guidelines.

The Laycock Complex Facts Overview • Total Estimated Cost: $11 million • 30,445 square foot, two-story building • Building will house football offices, meeting space, training room, equipment room and locker room Office Space • Eight coaches offices, including 500 square foot head coaching suite with balcony view into Zable Stadium • Assistant coaches offices will overlook practice field • All offices will be networked into a state-of-the-art video system • 300 square foot video production room Meeting Spaces • One 2,500 square foot team meeting room with wall-to-wall carpet • Four additional position meeting rooms, averaging 300 square feet • All meeting areas networked with video system • 900 square foot recruiting lounge with window and balcony overlooking Zable Stadium Lobby • 1,650 square foot area serving as grand entrance with circular stairwell to offices • Sky lights • Will display prominent moments from program’s proud history Training Room • 3,900 square foot state-of-the-art room, featuring 2,800 square foot treatment and taping area • Hydro-therapy room • Doctor’s exam room • Staff lockers Locker Room • 4,200 square foot carpeted room with space for 100 lockers • Breakout meeting space • Cable television • Full bathroom/shower and drink station Equipment Room • 2,300 square foot area with washers, dryers and lockers • Walk-up, pass-through laundry station • Abutting loading dock access

FieldTurf Installation at Cary Field During the spring of 2006, the W&M Athletics Department announced plans were in place for the conversion of the natural grass playing surface in Zable Stadium to a state of the art, synthetic playing surface for the 2006 football season. In July, the installation of the new playing surface, FieldTurf Pro, was completed, giving the Tribe one of the nation’s finest playing fields. The installation, at an estimated total cost of $840,000, was performed by Ballard Sports out of Cary, NC. FieldTurf features a non-abrasive fiber surface that resembles natural grass blades. Its blend of specially treated Polyethylene fibers prevents abrasions, or “rug burn”. Unlike traditional synthetic turf, which relied on an underlying shock pad for player comfort and safety, FieldTurf grass fibers are surrounded and stabilized by a special blend of “synthetic earth” - a mixture of smooth, rounded silica sand and rubber granules. The sand and rubber are precision layered and provide a stable, resilient, uniform, shock-absorbing surface. The Tribe’s playing field is the same surface used by 24 NFL teams, including the Detroit Lions, host of Super Bowl XL in 2006. It is a football-dedicated surface and only has markings specific to the sport. The FieldTurf project is the second major completed upgrade at the venerable stadium, as last season saw the school raise $650,000 to place permanent light fixtures at Zable.

1906-07 The first Cary Field is built, near the current location of Blow Memorial Hall.

First Game: Sept. 21, 1935 vs. Virginia (T, 0-0)

LATE 1920s Cary Field is moved farther west on campus, approximately to the current site of the Bryan residence complex.

SEPTEMBER 21, 1935 The “New” Cary Field opens at the stadium’s current location with a wooden baseball-style bleacher capacity of 10,000. Although the stadium is not fully constructed, W&M and Virginia battle to a scoreless tie. Later that season, W&M records its first victory in the stadium, a 44-0 decision over Guilford. NOVEMBER 5, 1949 An estimated crowd of more than 19,000 packed the Cary Field Stadium to witness North Carolina earn a hard-fought, 20-14, victory over W&M.

JUNE 17, 2005 The W&M Athletics Department announced it received $650,000 in anonymous gifts for the installation of permanent lights at Zable Stadium. The lights were installed later in the summer and debuted on Nov. 5, when the Tribe hosted James Madison in the first regular season night game at Zable Stadium. MARCH 29, 2006 The College announced a $840,000 project to replace Cary Field’s natural grass playing surface with a brand new, state-of-the-art artificial surface, FieldTurf Pro, which is used in over 20 NFL stadiums. The FieldTurf installation was completed in mid-July, and the surface is ready for practice and game use.

Steve Cole, Assistant Athletic Director for Health Services, enters his 24th year at the helm of the William and Mary Sports Medicine program. One who is familiar with the logistics and scope of the sports medicine field on all levels, Cole has a comprehensive knowledge of the broad discipline and all its components. Under the direction of Cole, Tribe athletes have the luxury of rehabilitating and treating injuries in a state-of-the-art athletic training facility. There are seven full-time certified athletic trainers and two graduate assistants from the post-graduate athletic training educational program at Old Dominion University on staff. In addition, a group of undergraduate students serve as athletic training aides and assist in the daily operation of the sports medicine program. A certified athletic trainer (BOC) and strength and conditioning specialist (NSCA), Cole graduated from West Virginia University in 1976 with a bachelor’s degree in physical education and athletic training. He subsequently earned a master’s degree in sports medicine in 1978 from the University of Virginia. This past summer, the National Athletic Trainers Association (NATA) recognized Cole as the College/University National Athletic Trainer of the Year. In 1997, Cole received his 25-year membership pin from NATA. He was also recognized for his service to the profession, receiving the Athletic Trainer Service Award, one of only three recipients from the Mid-Atlantic Region. In 2000, Cole was honored by the College for his many years of service to William and Mary with the recognition as an honorary alumnus. A true fitness buff, Cole is an exemplary model for all the athletes. He is an avid competitor who has participated in a variety of triathlons since 1980, spending countless hours of his spare time in training. Cole resides in Williamsburg with his wife Lonna, 8-year-old daughter Sydney Janaé, and 3-year-old daughter Jahnessa Yaxin. Andy Carter joined the William and Mary staff in 2000 as an associate athletic trainer. A William and Mary alumnus and former Tribe student athletic trainer, Andy returns to the Tribe sidelines for his third year as the head football athletic trainer, overseeing the sports medicine services for the team. He and his wife, Kristina, reside in Williamsburg. With 23 sports under his supervision, Cole receives plenty of assistance from his skilled, BOC-certified staff. Renee Cork, a graduate of Iowa State, is beginning her 15th year with the staff. She holds the title of senior associate athletic trainer. In 1999, Cork received the Sport Safety Training Award from the American Red Cross and is in charge of the CPR training for all William and Mary coaches. In 2002, the governor of Virginia appointed Cork to the Athletic Training Advisory Board under the Board of Medicine. She is the only

12

collegiate athletic trainer and the only female representative on the Advisory Board. Cork is very involved in the athletic training profession, serving on several athletic training committees at the state and regional levels. John Knaul, a graduate of Alfred University, is in his seventh year as a Senior Assistant Athletic Trainer. He and his wife, Katie, reside In Williamsburg. Tyson Burton of Whitworth College, Lisa Shook of Salisbury University, and Michele Swaney of California University of Pennsylvania, return for a second year as Assistant Athletic Trainers. Also, the two graduate assistants from the post professional graduate athletic training program at ODU who will be serving on the Tribe’s staff are Carla Boelte and Nicole Neumann. Boelte is a graduate of Bridgewater College, while Neumann attended Marietta College. In addition to the full-time athletic trainers, the sports medicine staff consists of a team physician and a network of physicians and medical specialists from the local community. A presence on the Tribe sideline for the past 40 years, retired Dr. George Oliver now holds the title of W&M’s team physician emeritus. Oliver was recognized by the College as an honorary alumnus in 2002. Michael Potter is in his fourth year on the staff as the team physician. The team physician oversees the full-time athletic training staff and has overall responsibility for supervising the sports medicine program. A family practice/sports medicine specialist, Potter earned his medical degree from Texas A&M. He completed his residency at the Riverside Family Practice in Newport News and his sports medicine fellowship at Wake Forest University. Potter is in private practice with the Virginia Center of Athletic Medicine (VCAM) of Tidewater Physicians Multispecialty Group (TPMG). Ed Wilhelm and Alex Lambert, surgeons at Virginia Orthopedics and Sports Medicine (VOSM), provide the team’s orthopedics care. Each brings a vast amount of experience to their positions, having worked and traveled on the international level as sports medicine physicians. Also assisting the Tribe are chiropractors Bob Pinto and Brian McGaughran. John Mitrovic, a former Tribe football player who graduated in 1983, is the owner/director of Williamsburg Physical Therapy Center. He is a licensed physical therapist, a certified strength and conditioning specialist and a certified athletic trainer. Mitrovic works with the program as a physical therapy consultant. William and Mary’s “team approach” to health care allows the sports medicine program to offer a wide range of comprehensive service to the student-athletes in a caring, cooperative manner.


Throughout the year, the College hosts a wide range of sports medicine programs, drawing participants from across the nation: • The ACES Preparatory Workshop is designed to prepare students to take the Board of Certification (BOC) exam to become certified athletic trainers. Hosted at institutions across the country, the ACES Workshop identifies participants’ strengths and weaknesses and focuses their study into their weaker content areas. • The William and Mary Sports Medicine Workshop offers high school students a four-day introduction to the field of sports medicine. Classroom instruction on emergency procedures, injury recognition, and basic rehabilitation is mixed with hands-on lab activities including taping and wrapping and CPR. • The Division of Sports Medicine serves as the sports medicine rotation site for the Riverside Family Medicine Residency Program. Second and third-year residents come to William and Mary to work with our staff and enhance their skills in orthopedic examination, sports injury management, and physical therapy referral. • William and Mary is a clinical site for the Old Dominion University Post Professional Graduate Athletic Training Education Program. Two students from Old Dominion complete their two-year clinical assignments as graduate assistants under the direction of our staff.

Jerry Fife

Head Equipment Manager Jerry Fife is entering his fifth season as the head equipment manager at the College of William and Mary. Fife handles all of the equipment issues for the Tribe football squad, including ordering and maintaining all of the team’s gear. Fife came to the College from Ashland University, his alma mater, where he held the position of Head Equipment Coordinator from 1998-2001. Well-respected among his peers, Fife was named the District II Vice President of the Athletic Equipment Managers Association (AEMA). He helped rewrite the AEMA certification exam and has chaired the association’s National Education Committee since 2002, while also serving as the interim chair of the national web site, www.aema1.com. He has presented at the AEMA’s national convention in 2001, 2002, 2003 and 2004 and also published an article in the AEMA Journal in 2006. While at the College, Fife has been instrumental in the acquisition and use of the two “Tribe” trucks. The 30-foot equipment truck (pictured below) from Cook’s Moving of Hampton, hauls the majority of the team’s equipment on the road. The program also has a pickup from Williamsburg Dodge that follows along. Fife has also established a relationship with EZ-GO, which provides golf carts for use during the football season. With the improvements and additions being made to the football program, Fife has been a valuable asset in the design of the equipment room and locker room aspect of the Jimmye Laycock Football Complex. In addition to his work as the equipment manager, Fife also was an instructor of sports sciences at Ashland. After earning his undergraduate degree from Ashland in 1994, he began his career in the profession as a graduate assistant equipment coordinator, a position he held in 1996-97. He went on to earn a master’s degree from Ashland in 2001. He has continued his teaching career, having created and instructed an equipment class for the NIAAA. Fife is certified by the AEMA and has designed and maintained his own computer inventory program for use with student-athletes as well as a web site which he uses to gather information from William and Mary student-athletes. Fife is married to the former Missy Harrison, and the couple resides in Lanexa, Virginia.

James Carter

Assistant Equipment Manager A true asset to the football program, James Carter is in his eighth year working with the equipment staff. Carter’s main responsibilities include driving the 30-foot, or 26-foot, moving trucks that haul the Tribe’s equipment for all road games. Carter also drives any rental vehicles when the team flies to away games. Carter takes responsibility for all sideline communications for both home and away contests, including setup and take down of all communication equipment and monitoring the functionality during the games. Before and after games, Carter is an essential member of the equipment staff, assisting the athletes and coaches with any equipment needs that they may have. The HVAC and Plumbing Supervisor at Paramount’s Kings Dominion in Doswell, Carter volunteers his time to help the Tribe program on Fridays and Saturdays during the season, and whenever else he may be needed throughout the season. Carter and his wife, Wendy, reside in Hanover, Virginia.

Outlook for 2006. The trio’s presence, along with rugged junior middle backer T.J. O’Neill (48 TT), gives the Tribe one of the most versatile linebacker combinations in the conference. All-conference center Pat Mulloy was one of three linemen to graduate the program last season with more than three years of starting experience, leaving the Tribe to re-tool its offensive front with Morris and returning starting tackles Brad Stewart and Brent Cochran as its building blocks. Similarly, the defensive backfield matriculated three equally proven veteran performers in safeties James Miller and Jon Shaw and all-conference cornerback Stephen Cason. While their leadership will take time to replace, cornerbacks Derek Cox, Alan Wheeling and Richard Riley all are game tested and form the foundation of a promising secondary. After starting the 2005 season with a 5-2 mark through seven games, including a 42-10 drilling of then top-ranked New Hampshire, the College suffered a heartbreak laden four-game losing streak to end the season, with two of the losses coming by a single point. Injuries, especially along the offensive front, and an abundance of youth contributed to some of the setbacks. But, teaching and developing talent has always been a cornerstone of Laycock’s success, and these hard lessons from a season ago should pay large dividends for 2006. The following is a position-by-position breakdown of the 2006 edition of Tribe football:

2006 Tribe Football Season Outlook With a campus nestled in a community that traces its roots back to the very beginnings of the American saga, history and tradition abounds at the College of William and Mary. The same can be said of the school’s football program, as the College claims more than 110 seasons and can boast of more than 500 wins and thousands of successful alumni. Inside of this rich history, no one leader can lay claim to more success than current head coach, Jimmye Laycock, who prepares to steer his 27th edition of the Tribe football program into the 2006 season. Historically speaking, last season’s 5-6 record was an aberration in Laycock’s tenure, as it ties for his lowest win total in the last 23 years. Only five times since 1983 has the College failed to win six games, which is a remarkable fact in itself. But, what may be even more impressive is the four previous times W&M recorded just five wins, the following year saw the Tribe advance to the postseason. But more than just history lessons will have the Tribe faithful excited about the prospects for the coming season, as Laycock’s charges return some of the league’s most exciting young talent. The optimism starts with the luxury of having 13 starters returning, including the entire offensive backfield. Veterans abound at the offensive skill positions, as the team returns all 4,158 yards of total offense and 38 of the 41 touchdowns the unit scored a season ago. Leading the way will be a trio of returning senior all-conference performers in tailback Elijah Brooks (944 yards and nine TDs on 207 rushing attempts), tight end Matt Trinkle (21 receptions for 148 yards and one TD) and offensive lineman Cody Morris (two-year starter and twotime all-conference standout). Similarly, the good news on the defense starts at the linebacker position that is absolutely loaded with talent. Standout sophomore linebacker Josh Rutter (109 TT), the team’s top tackler from a season ago, is back and two former all-conference players in seniors Chris Ndubueze and Travis McLaurin return

OFFENSE Quarterback The position is the program’s signature role. A Tribe signal caller has earned postseason honors of some variety in nine of the 13 seasons the College has been a member of the Atlantic 10. Laycock and his staff have a well-earned reputation as being premier mentors for the position, and the Tribe has the unique luxury of having a pair of players in junior Mike Potts and sophomore Jake Phillips capable of creating their own legacy in the tradition-rich area. After the pair split the starting role fairly equally in 2005, with Phillips making six starts to Potts’ five, this spring featured a pitched battle for the starting rights. While each was impressive, Phillips (123-of-192 for 1,564 yards and 12 TDs in 2005) remained at the top of the depth chart, but Potts (78-of-127 for 842 yards and seven TDs) will continue to push the issue into the fall. Phillips gained valuable experience as the team’s starter over the final five games of the season and has all the physical tools to be one of the league’s dominant players. He best showcased these considerable talents when he orchestrated an incredible comeback win at Northeastern, coming off the bench to rally the squad from a 21-point fourth quarter deficit to a 44-41 doubleovertime win. He showed all the promise of a budding All-American by throwing four touchdown passes and running for a fifth in just over a quarter of playing time against the Huskies. The effort earned the league’s Rookie of the Week honor, which he also earned after his first career start at VMI, where he completed 17 of 21 passes for 202 yards and a touchdown. Conversely, there were also moments when he showed his age and learned some hard lessons. But his off-season work ethic was outstanding, and he has improved his size and strength, weighing in at 225 lbs. The added strength has helped increase his throwing velocity,

both on the short and deep routes. During the spring, he displayed improvement with his command of the offense. While he continues to develop his all-around game, he has the athletic ability to tuck the ball away and be a threat with his legs, as he ended the year with 279 rushing yards, not including lost yardage on sacks, and eight touchdowns. The 6-4, 225-lb. Potts brings a different style to the position, as he has a pro-caliber arm and the size to make plays from the pocket. He is a proven, effective starter, as he engineered the school’s first victory over a No. 1-ranked team when he threw for an efficient 127 yards and one touchdown on 11-for-19 passing in the team’s win over New Hampshire. He ended the year completing better than 61 percent of his passes and threw just two interceptions in his 127 total attempts. With one of the strongest arms in the conference, he has the ability to stretch defenses vertically. As the most experienced quarterback on the team, in terms of practice reps, which included backing up Payton Award winning quarterback Lang Campbell as a redshirt freshman in 2004, he continues to build on his considerable command of the offense. This spring saw Potts complete better than 75 percent of his attempts in full-team drills. While his arm strength garners most of the attention, he is also capable of extending plays in the pocket with his feet. While Phillips and Potts gain most of the attention outside of the program, senior reserve Christian Taylor quietly provides the position with experience and reliable depth. With four years in the offense under his belt, Taylor is more than capable of guiding the team, if the situation presented itself. Taylor is also a valuable member of the special teams unit, as he enters his second season as the holder on placement kicks. Adding to the depth are redshirt freshmen R.J. Archer and Brett Molenaar. As one of the team’s better athletes, along with the talent at the position, the staff is giving Archer a strong look as a wide receiver, where he could make an impact as soon as this fall. Last season, Archer displayed strong leadership skills and play-making ability in running the squad’s scout team of-

Tailbacks Tribe running back mentor Steven Jerry brings a deep and diverse group into the fall, as he has no less than five backs that have seen significant game action between the tailback and fullback positions. The headliner of the corps is senior team-captain and starting tailback Elijah Brooks, who transferred into the Tribe program as a sophomore from Kent State before the 2004 season. If awards were given for consistency, he would be a returning first-team All-American. As it is, Brooks comes in as a returning all-conference performer who is one of the league’s most complete backs. An outstanding runner between the tackles, he also brings soft hands to the passing game and, possibly more importantly, is extremely effective with pass protection. His 944 rushing yards from a season ago is the league’s fifth highest returning total, while his 10 rushing touchdowns rank second amongst returnees. An extremely durable player with a straightforward style, his 207 carries last season were more than double the next highest total on the squad, and he has played in 37-straight career games between W&M and Kent State. While he makes a substantial amount of yardage after the first contact, Brooks brings a great feel to the position and does an excellent job at reading the field and finding running lanes. He started last season by rushing for a career high 149 yards on 28 carries at Marshall and had perhaps his most complete game of the season in the team’s win over New Hampshire by turning in 135 yards and four touchdowns on 32 carries. Already a quick player, he has concentrated his off-season efforts at improving his speed, which will make him an even more dangerous player in space. While Brooks serves as the Tribe’s hammer, his style is complimented by slashing sophomore DeBrian Holmes (304 yards and one TD on 56 attempts). While the two run with contrast-

Outlook ing styles, each is equally adept at catching passes out of the backfield, as they combined to bring in 35 passes for 289 yards and three touchdowns. Holmes’ strength comes in his speed and quickness, as he is the squad’s primary outside threat. But, despite his slight frame (5-9, 180 lbs.), he is able to deliver and absorb contact, both as a runner and in pass protection, and can run between the tackles when necessary. He increased his effectiveness as the season progressed and built on the progress with a solid spring showing. Look for him to be one of the team’s impact players in multiple areas this fall, as he will also see return action on special teams. While the Holmes-Brooks combination enters the season looking to shoulder the heaviest loads, hard-nosed junior Tony Viola (30 attempts for 183 yards in 2005) and senior Delmus Coley will also get the opportunities to contribute at the position. Viola is an experienced player who excels in running downhill and has demonstrated the ability to be a reliable back in both short-yardage and open-field situations. After Coley’s sensational freshman campaign was cut short by a serious knee injury, he missed the entire 2004 season to rehab. While he made a limited return to game action in 2005, he had his spring cut short with another injury. When healthy, he is arguably one of the Tribe’s most complete backs, as he possesses a devastating mixture of speed and quickness. Freshman Matt Nickerson made solid strides in the spring and will concentrate on continuing his development in the fall. Tight Ends/Full Backs Senior tight end Matt Trinkle, who is entering his fourthyear as a major contributor in the system, gives Tribe tight end coach Chris Willetts the most game tested returning starter on the offense. His large frame (6-5, 260 lbs.) and outstanding hands position him as one of the conference’s top tight ends. His maturity will be an equally valuable commodity, as the Tribe is otherwise very short on experience at the position. Beyond Trinkle’s 31 games of experience, no other player on the Tribe’s roster has seen significant action in the role. Trinkle earned second team all-league honors last season (21 catches for 148 yards and a TD), splitting time with fellow all-conference honoree Adam Bratton. With Bratton gone, look for Trinkle’s numbers to swell. A versatile athlete who is also an outstanding basketball player, he has improved each season on campus and could challenge for national honors if he stays healthy. Backing up Trinkle will be hard-working junior Drew Atchison. Since joining the squad as a walk-on after the 2004 season, he has worked diligently to fill out his athletic 6-7 frame and has bulked up to nearly 250 lbs. He earned the top reserve role with a solid spring and will look to be an impact player in the fall. Freshman Rob Varno is another promising young talent with an athletic frame. Though he ended the spring slightly undersized (6-5, 225 lbs.), he has outstanding ball skills and good speed. He could see some action as an H-back and will find more opportunities to contribute as he continues to add size and strength. Sophomore Evan Muro is a strong, physical player who is solid at the line of scrimmage and could also see action as a tackle. Much the same as the tight end position, the fullback spot has a proven veteran returning to provide leadership for a host of talented newcomers. Junior Matt Otey has seen significant

18

2006

playing time for the last two seasons as the main fullback. He brings good size (5-11, 230 lbs.) and hands to the backfield and has been an asset in both the running and passing games. Otey’s effectiveness this spring was limited due to nagging injuries, but his downtime led to the maturation of explosive redshirt freshman Raphael Bynum, who switched from the crowded linebacker position midway through the session. Bynum impressed the staff with how quickly he picked up on alignments and assignments and also displayed speed and explosiveness. He will challenge for playing time this fall. Junior Graham Falbo was also well on his way to turning in an equally impressive spring when a knee injury halted his reps. A converted lineman, Falbo displayed a complete grasp of the offense and has solid technique. He will spend the off-season and fall working back into playing shape. Offensive Line A positive thinker will see the Tribe’s situation along the offensive front as a case of the glass being half full, as it returns three starters from last season’s unit. A negative person might be quick to point out that none of the squad’s four players listed at guard on the College’s current two-deep have ever started a collegiate game with two of the four never having played a collegiate snap. But, fortunately for the Tribe faithful, offensive line coach Bob Solderitch is both an optimist and a proven developer of young talent. Certainly, another positive on the Tribe’s side is the fact Cody Morris returns for his senior season as one of the top lineman in the nation. The two-time all-conference performer comes into the year as a preseason All-American and will be the unquestioned leader of the young, but promising, group. After starting every game of the last two seasons at guard, Morris made a successful move to center this spring with the idea of maximizing his knowledge of the offense. Morris is the complete package from the physical standpoint, as he possesses good size, balance and strength. But what separates him from the pack, is his outstand-

Outlook rates him from the pack, is his outstanding technique and work ethic. The Tribe cause is also buoyed by the return of both starting tackles, juniors Brent Cochran (6-5, 300 lbs.) and Brad Stewart (6-3, 300 lbs.), and the pair will be counted on to provide stability as the guard position solidifies. Stewart made every start of 2005 at right tackle, and the staff is counting on him to build on his solid debut and be an even greater force this fall. A strong, physical player, Stewart has all the necessary tools to excel at the position, and his focus will be on building confidence in his overall approach this fall. Cochran is potentially the most athletic of the linemen and he brings outstanding size to the quarterback’s blind side. He moved into the starting lineup for the season’s third contest last fall and never relinquished his spot. He has the ability to play at an all-conference level as he continues to add strength and become more consistent. While the College is not long on experience at the guard spot, the healthy return of junior Justin Oliver, who missed the entire 2005 season with a blood disorder, is a good start to the building process. While he was unable to take contact last fall, Oliver did his due diligence in the weight room and improved his strength markedly. Oliver is very athletic for his 6-4, 295-lb. frame and his last action for the College came as an emergency tight end over the final games of the 2004 season. He enters the year as the starting left guard and showed an excellent grasp of the offense, but he will be challenged through the fall for playing time. His main competition will be mammoth redshirt freshman C.J. Muse, who stands 6-4 and weighs more than 310 lbs. Muse brings a raw toughness to the interior and has good strength and footwork. His playing time will come as he continues to build on his overall understanding of the offense. Sophomore Luke Hiteshew is currently slated to be the starter opposite Oliver at right guard. Whatever he may lack in size (6-1, 287 lbs.), he makes up for in effort and desire. Hiteshew has worked his way to top of the depth chart after walking on the squad and has shown a great deal of aptitude with the Tribe’s intricate attack. If he is able to continue to develop his physical skills and add strength, he has the potential for a long and productive career. Fellow sophomore walk-on Eric O’Brien is another extremely dedicated, hard-working talent who is fighting for playing time. He is currently listed as the top reserve behind Hiteshew, but he also could figure in at tackle or tight end as well. An exceptionally hard worker, O’Brien started his career as a defensive tackle before moving to the offensive side of the ball this past spring. Sophomore Jonathan Shafran rounds out the depth chart at guard and will continue to use his outstanding

2006

work ethic to enhance his development. Sophomore Michael Grant and redshirt freshman Chris Ilardo are the two top reserves at the tackle position. Each possesses outstanding size, as Ilardo stands 6-3 and weighs 310 lbs., while Grant tips the scales at 305 lbs. and stretches the tape to 6-5. Ilardo, who backs up Cochran at left tackle, combines good strength with his size, while Grant is coming off his best spring showing where he displayed increased confidence in his alignments and technique. Sophomore Tim Kelley is the key reserve at the center position. Yet another walk-on lineman, he has shown great improvement in his short time on campus after transferring into the program from the Air Force Academy following the 2004 season. A player with an outstanding work ethic and a good grasp of his responsibilities, Kelley’s continued progress in the weight room will see him challenge for reps this fall. A pair of redshirt freshmen in Chris Moore and Thomas McCutcheon are recovering from injuries that limited their participation in the spring and will be looking to gain valuable experience in the fall. Wide Receiver Experience is slightly less of an issue at wide out, where Tribe receivers coach Zbig Kepa returns two of the top three pass catchers from last season in sure-handed junior Joe Nicholas (52 grabs for 731 yards and five TDs) and explosive sophomore Elliott Mack (21 catches for 371 yards and four TDs). Nicholas, who established the school’s freshman record for catches (66) and yards (799) in 2004, will enter the fall as one of the league’s most proven pass catchers and a serious contender for postseason honors. His outstanding size (6-3, 211 lbs.) and tremendous vertical (35 inches) make him a very difficult assignment in single coverage. His knowledge of the offense allows the staff to use him in multiple roles, as he is equally effective working underneath or overtop of coverages. Mack will look to build on a solid debut in 2005 that saw him show flashes of big-play ability. One of the program’s focuses for the spring was to take better advantage of his speed on the perimeter and the results were positive. Already a tremendous athlete with outstanding hands, Mack brings an equal intensity to both the weight room and practice field. This work ethic, combined with his ability, makes him an instant post-season honor candidate and 2006 could be a break-out season if he continues his development. One of the more pleasant happenings this spring came in the development of speedy sophomore wide out D.J. McAulay. After spending a season with the travel squad and seeing lim-

Outlook

ited special teams action, McAulay came into the spring and displayed moments of absolute brilliance. His 10.6-second 100-meter speed and elusiveness makes him a threat in any open field situation. The staff will count on McAulay’s continued progress this fall, as he has the potential to mature into one of the league’s most potent offensive weapons. Senior receiver John Taylor brings the corps a reliable and consistent presence. A very physical player with good hands, Taylor has the toughness and instincts to work the middle of the field. Cut from much the same mold, fellow senior Corey Davis has many of the same attributes and also has the speed to make plays down field. Each will figure to see significant playing time, with Taylor being the team’s most experienced H-back. Junior Brandon Burrow and a pair of redshirt freshmen in Eric Robertson and Brian Lanning round out the group. Burrow converted to the position at the start of spring from defensive back and possesses good speed and physicality. Robertson and Lanning are both young and athletic and will use the fall to continue their development.

to battle for reps throughout the fall as two proven all-conference performers, seniors Chris Ndubueze and Travis McLaurin, return after missing the 2005 campaign. After starting all 11 games at the outside position last fall, McLeod is shifting Rutter to the inside to take advantage of his uncanny ability to find the ball carrier. A true throwback player, Rutter seeks contact on every snap and has spent the summer in Williamsburg adding significant size and strength. O’Neill plays with a similar style and carries the same work ethic. His size (6-1, 240 lbs.) and strength make him a natural for the inside backer role, a position where he recorded four starts in 2005. McLaurin, a 2005 team-captain, returns from a knee injury that cost him all of last fall. His outstanding speed, strength and toughness earned him all-conference recognition as a sophomore in 2003, and his healthy return to the unit brings truly amazing depth to the heart of the team’s defense. Ndubueze and sophomore Michael Pigram compliment the rugged inside backers with their speed and athleticism. Opposing offenses will have to account for the duo on every snap, as both are a playmaking threat from the edge. Pigram had such a standout spring that he enters the fall listed as one starter at the outside backer position. After seeing limited action last season, Pigram found a comfort level in the defense during spring and displayed explosive athleticism and sure tackling. He also is one of the team’s strongest players (400-plus lb. bench press) and will be a talent to watch as he gains experience. Ndubueze mirrors his counterpart’s athleticism and adds a healthy dose of experience to the mix. He missed last fall due to personal reasons, but was the squad’s Defensive MVP on the championship squad of 2004, when he contributed 117 total tackles. A strong showing in the spring dispelled any notions of a drop in play due to the layoff and his return gives the College an elite-caliber playmaker who will challenge for postseason honors. Amazingly, it doesn’t stop there, as an additional pair of athletic, physical performers are also pushing for playing time in senior Trevor McLaurin and sophomore Todd Reyher. Trevor is the

DEFENSE Linebackers No position brings more talent to the field for the Tribe than the linebacker spot. Matt McLeod comes into his second season as the team’s defensive coordinator and the hands-on leader of the linebacker unit. The position will likely form the cornerstone of his defense and will be the unit he relies on to make plays in his attacking schemes. After a season of getting the players and staff adjusted, look for the College’s entire unit to take a significant step forward under McLeod’s fiery leadership. The position returns the top tackler from a season ago in rugged sophomore Josh Rutter (109 TT), while hard-hitting junior T.J. O’Neill (48 TT) also saw significant starting action in the middle of the Tribe defense. While each has the athletic ability to challenge for postseason honors, remarkably, they will all have

twin brother of fellow linebacker, Travis, and the pair forms what is the core of the team’s leadership group. Trevor, who switched from tailback to linebacker after the third game of last season, has shown a high aptitude for the position and was the team’s most improved player in spring. Complimenting his improvement on the field was his recognition as a co-recipient of the Jon A. Stewart Winter Warrior Award after a tremendous showing in the weight room during the offseason. While he has the strength to be an impact player at the line of scrimmage, McLaurin has also shown outstanding potential playing in space, both in run and pass coverage. Reyher is a hardworking and experienced reserve at the middle backer spot, who, along with Ryan Horvath, will provide depth and contribute on special teams.

counterparts acclimate to the collegiate game. Fellow senior Brian Neely entered the spring as the top candidate for the starting job opposite Williamson, as his outstanding size (6-4, 300 lbs.) and good athleticism makes him a proto-type for the role. But, a knee injury sustained in spring dealt him a setback and he will need the fall to regain strength and conditioning. When healthy, Neely has the ability to impact plays at and behind the line of scrimmage. Neely’s injury opened the door for talented redshirt freshman Cortenous Herbert to earn the starting tackle nod, which he did with a solid spring showing. At 6-3, 260 lbs., Herbert is still gaining size and strength, but he impressed the staff with his ability to grasp the schemes and alignments. His main weapons are speed and athleticism, but an offseason in the weight room has significantly improved his strength as well. Sophomore Josh Larkins will be a key reserve at tackle and brings the unit another large frame (6-2, 300 lbs.). Despite his size, he has good quickness that will only improve as he develops his conditioning. Talented redshirt freshman Adrian Tracy earned the starting nod opposite Wright at the end position after a spring battle with classmate Sean Lissemore. Tracy impressed with his explosiveness, and the rookie has the potential to be an outstanding pass rusher, while Lissemore is a physical player who has tremendous strength. Both will see significant playing time this fall and each has the potential to be fixtures on the defensive front for years to come. Along with these talented freshman, junior end Ryan Jones also showed well in the spring and will be the top reserve behind Wright this fall. As one of the more seasoned lineman, Jones used his experience and feel for the game to be an effective force in the spring and will look to continue his development this fall. Fellow junior William Turner also will compete for snaps at end in the fall. One of the squad’s most dedicated players, Turner moved down from linebacker and plays with a good motor. He is still learning the position and will contribute on special teams as he gains more experience.

Defensive Line While the depth chart shows two seniors as starters, with a third as a key reserve, first looks can be deceiving as Tribe defensive line coach Trevor Andrews leads one of the youngest units into the 2006 season. Though his group will be built around the experienced tandem of senior defensive end Josh Wright and defensive tackle Brian Williamson, there is a wealth of fresh talent looking to make an impact that should provide for great competition in every practice session. Wright is the undisputed vocal leader of the outfit, as he will be entering his fourth year as a major contributor. One of the team’s most intense players, he approaches all facets of the game with a high energy level. His work ethic in the weight room earned him a share of the team’s Jon A. Stewart Winter Warrior Award, given annually to the team’s most dedicated player to the off-season training regime. Despite being somewhat limited by a nagging back injury this spring, Williamson stepped up as a vocal leader of the young group. His healthy return to the tackle position gives the Tribe a formidable presence in the middle, as his 6-5, 290 lb. frame excels at occupying, and occasionally running past, offensive lineman. The staff will count on his strength and athleticism to be a force at the point of attack as his young

Outlook steadily gaining confidence in the defense and will challenge for playing time with continued development, while Houff is athletic enough to play corner or safety and possesses outstanding speed. Sophomore safeties Cody Tomon and Obie Boykin and freshman corner Fred Johnson complete the depth for the backfield and will work to contribute on special teams while gaining experience.

A pair of redshirt freshmen, Daniel Pulley and Melvin Ferebee, round out the team’s depth at the tackle position. Ferebee was off to a solid start in the spring until he was slowed by a hand injury that cost him valuable reps, while Pulley fought through an early injury to finish the spring on a strong note. Each will continue to gain experience this fall. Secondary Nowhere did graduation leave a bigger mark than in the secondary, where a combined 88 games of starting experience matriculated from the program in safeties James Miller (30) and Jon Shaw (28) and cornerback Stephen Cason (30). However, Tribe secondary mentor Scott Boone’s cupboard is far from bare, as the cornerback position will feature the return of a trio of athletes who have seen significant game action in seniors Richard Riley (16 TT, 3 PBUs and one INT in ’05) and Alan Wheeling (27 TT) and sophomore Derek Cox (19 TT, one INT and one PBU). Riley and Wheeling have shared the starting duties opposite Cason for each of the past two seasons, while Cox gradually asserted himself as the 2005 season wore on and returns as one of the team’s most gifted athletes. Riley has all the tools to be a standout cover corner, while Wheeling is a solid performer and a sure tackler both in the open field and at the point of attack. Cox brings excellent size (6-1, 185 lbs.) and explosiveness to the position and has the potential to blossom into one of the league’s premier defensive players. With Shaw and Miller making the majority of starts at safety during each of the past two seasons, no current player on the Tribe roster boasts much playing experience. But, heady senior Zach Stout has been a key reserve for the past two seasons and has gained a strong knowledge of the Tribe’s system. He will be counted on to be the quarterback of the defense from the rover position. Sophomore Kevin Allen also served as a key reserve for most of 2005 and has the size and athleticism to be an impact player. The pair will be backed up by redshirt freshman Sheldon Alexander and speedy sophomore David Houff. Alexander is

Special Teams The graduation of record-setting, four-time all-conference place-kicker Greg Kuehn leaves large shoes to fill. Kuehn was a fixture at the position for the last 45 games and finished his career as the school’s all-time leader in total points, field goals and extra points. While Kuehn’s longevity and steady success prevented his successor, senior Blair Pritchard, from seeing any game action as place-kicker, Pritchard has been battle tested, handling the punting duties in 2005. He possesses an explosive leg in both capacities and should continue the Tribe’s tradition of excellence in the kicking game. Pritchard ended 2005 with a solid average of 39.4 yards per punt. Sure-handed quarterback Christian Taylor will continue to hold on placement kicks, while Josh Wright will be counted on to handle the long-snapping duties, a role he has held on and off, for the last three seasons. Brent Cochran comes into the fall as the starter for short-snapping duties. A host of players could see action in all the return roles, but DeBrian Holmes returns with the most experience having brought back 10 kicks for 185 yards in 2005. Also likely to challenge for reps in the role are Elijah Brooks, Derek Cox, D.J. McAulay and Elliott Mack. All of the same are likely candidates to return punts as well, along with Alan Wheeling.

Head Coach Jimmye Laycock

When Jimmye Laycock returned to coach his alma mater prior to the 1980 season, he inherited a program that had won six or more games in a season just four times in the previous 25 years. Few could have predicted that the College would produce more than three times that amount of seven-win seasons over the next quarter century. As the architect of what is easily the most extended run of success in William and Mary’s 112-year football history, Laycock has never compromised academic standards for athletic success and has steadily built his program into a point of pride for the campus, alumni and community. While no one season can define a career that spans more than two and a half decades, Laycock’s 25th year at the top of the Tribe program accentuated what is at the heart of his basic principles; character, discipline and attention to details will lead to success. And, the 2004 team experienced levels of success never before reached at the College. William and Mary set a school record for wins (11), won the Atlantic 10 Football Conference’s automatic NCAA bid, hosted a NCAA semifinal game before a standing room only crowd at Zable Stadium in front of a national television audience and finished the year with a school record No. 3 final national ranking. Along the way, a bevy of school single-season records fell; total points (486),

total yards (6,044) and home wins (seven), to name just a few. But, none of these achievements spoke more succinctly to Laycock’s approach than the program’s 100 percent official NCAA graduation-rate report for all student-athletes receiving athletics aid. This showed W&M graduated all of its football players who entered the program as freshmen during the 1997-98 school year. The Tribe not only carried the highest graduation rate in the conference, but also was far and away the top figure of any team ranked in the final national top 25. Only fourth-ranked Furman (81%) was within 20 percentage points of the College. In fact, William and Mary is one of only four teams in the entire I-AA top 25 to have a graduation rate of 70 percent, or better. When looking at the I-AA football world, the Tribe’s stellar 161-70-2 (.695) record against fellow I-AA foes during Laycock’s career also confirms the success of his formula. The College also boasts a 6838 (.642) mark in league play and has had 128 all-conference honors since 1993. The 2001 campaign stood as a testament to Laycock’s program’s stability, as the team rebounded from a nine-year low 5-6 record in 2000 to post an 8-4 mark, claiming a share of the Atlantic 10 Crown and earning a spot in the NCAA Division I-AA Playoffs. Laycock is the Tribe’s winningest coach, boasting a career 175-1192 (.596) record. Since Laycock’s first season in 1980, the College has had 18 winning ledgers in the last 23 years and has played in postseason games in nine of the last 20 seasons. The 1996 campaign is another prime example of how Laycock has perpetuated a winning tradition within W&M’s rigorous classroom standards, as he led a youth-laden

squad to a quarterfinal showing in the NCAA playoffs, a 10-3 overall record (7-1 in league play), the Tribe’s first Yankee Conference Championship, and a fifth-place national ranking. One trademark of a Laycock-coached team is a prolific and intricate offensive attack. The Tribe offense averaged better than 420 yards and 26 points over the 115 games it played in the 1990s. Prior to the 2004 campaign, the 1990 season stood as the benchmark for the Tribe program. That season, Laycock was honored by his peers as Coach of the Year in Region II and the state of Virginia for guiding the Tribe to 10 wins and an appearance in the quarterfinals of the Division I-AA playoffs. That 1990 squad, ranked No. 7 in the final NCAA poll, refashioned many pages in the school record book. W&M led the country in total offense by averaging almost 500 yards per game and claimed the

Head Coach Jimmye Laycock Lambert Cup for I-AA supremacy in the East. Even the Virginia General Assembly passed a resolution commending Laycock accomplishments. The Tribe’s 1996 squad led the conference in both total offense and defense en route to earning its own Lambert Cup and ECAC Team of the Year honors. Laycock has made the home turf in Zable Stadium into unfriendly territory for opponents as the Tribe has won 78.0 percent of its games (90-25-1) there in the last 22 years. Counting the 2004 season, W&M has turned in seven undefeated regular season home campaigns in the last 17 years. After some lean years early in his tenure, Laycock’s teams began building respectability among all opponents. After a pair of 6-5 seasons, W&M carved out a 7-4 mark in 1985 and a national ranking of No. 16. The winning ways continued in 1986 with a 9-3 record and an eighthplace ranking. In that historic season, the Tribe advanced to the I-AA playoffs for the first time and had three players drafted by the NFL. Although William and Mary dipped to a 5-6 slate in 1987, the Tribe recovered to post a 6-4-1 overall record in 1988. That memorable season climaxed with a trip

Head Coach Jimmye Laycock all, as the 2004 season saw him earn the prestigious Payton Award, given annually to the nation’s top offensive player in the I-AA ranks, consensus first team All-America honors, as well as the A-10’s Offensive Player of the Year and Academic Player of the Year. The record-setting tandem of quarterback Campbell and wide out Dominique Thompson each signed free agent contracts, with the Cleveland Browns and St. Louis Rams, respectively, in the spring of 2005, joining free safety Darren Sharper (Minnesota Vikings), a second round draft pick of the Green Bay in 1997, defensive back Billy Parker (Carolina Panthers) and Mike Leach (Denver Broncos) as representatives of the Green and Gold in the NFL ranks. All-American defensive end Adam O’Connor is the Tribe’s most recent addition to the NFL ranks, as he joined the Carolina Panthers as a free-agent offensive lineman in the spring. Michael Clemons (Class of 1987) had been one of the CFL’s most explosive players since joining the Toronto Argonauts in 1989, a team he now coaches.

“I’ve always admired the work that Jimmye’s done at William and Mary. He’s very well-respected throughout the coaching fraternity. He’s the right man for the right college.” Darren Sharper - Three-time Pro Bowl safety “Coach Laycock knew from the time that he was recruiting me what position was best for me to reach my ultimate potential. Joining the Tribe family turned out to be the best situation for me to grow as a person and as a player. Without being a part of this family, I wouldn’t be as successful as I am today.” Mike Tomlin - Minnesota Vikings Defensive Coordinator “William and Mary sets the stage to address the challenges you face. Coach Jimmye Laycock has been the blueprint for me. He is what the job of coaching is all about.”

Head Coach Jimmye Laycock Highlights from the Laycock Era...

Laycock vs. The Nation

• Jimmye Laycock enters his 27th season as the Tribe’s head coach in 2006. The school’s all-time winningest coach, Laycock has compiled a 175-119-2 career record at W&M. • Among active Division I and I-AA head coaches, Laycock’s 175 victories are tied for eighth in the nation. Among only active I-AA head coaches, Laycock’s total is third. • Laycock ranks fourth on the all-time A-10 career victories list with 68. Among active coaches, Laycock trails only Villanova’s Andy Talley (83). However, Laycock’s career A-10 winning percentage of .642 is tops among active coaches who have been at their respective schools for five or more seasons. • In 2004, W&M won a school-record 11 games and made its ninth postseason appearance under Laycock, advancing to the NCAA semifinals for the first time in school history and finishing with a school-record No. 3 final national ranking. • The Tribe has posted winning ledgers in 18 of the past 23 seasons under Laycock. • The College has posted 23 consecutive seasons with five, or more, wins. While five wins may not sound all that impressive, consider that in just the last 12 years (since 1993), every current member of the Atlantic 10 has experienced at least one season of four or less wins. • Laycock has guided the Tribe to a total of 51 career 40-plus point outings in his 296 games as the College’s head coach, a number that represents more than 15 percent of his total games. By comparison, the College had seen only 12 total 40-plus point outings in the 30 seasons prior to Laycock taking the reigns of the program in 1980. • Since joining the Atlantic 10 Football conference in 1993, a William and Mary quarterback has earned all-conference honors in nine of the 13 seasons, including seven-straight campaigns from 1998 to 2004. Going hand-in-hand with the postseason honors is the fact that in seven of the 13 seasons in league play, a Tribe QB has turned in the conference’s top QB efficiency rating. • The College has earned 128 total all-conference citations under Laycock. • The Tribe has posted a 97-35-1 record (.733) at Zable Stadium under Laycock, which includes seven undefeated seasons in Williamsburg. In Laycock’s 26 seasons, the College has failed to post a .500 or better record at home just twice (1980, 1999). • Since joining the A-10 in 1993, W&M has gone 98-50 (.662) against I-AA opponents. • During Laycock’s 26-year tenure, 20 Tribe players have gone on to sign with NFL teams, including three-time Pro Bowl selection Darren Sharper. • Laycock has mentored 30 student-athletes to All-America honors at the College, including a career-high four in 2004 that earned either Sports Network or Associated Press All-America citations (Lang Campbell, Dominique Thompson, Greg Kuehn, Adam O’Connor). Campbell was a consensus First Team All-American (AFCA, Walter Camp, AP, Sports Network) and was also the winner of the 2004 Walter Payton Award (pictured below).

Assistant Coaches Zbig Kepa

Offensive Coordinator/WR 23rd Season A fixture on the Tribe’s staff for 23 years, Zbig Kepa is one of the most respected offensive coaches in the Atlantic 10. The 2004 season validated this respect, as he helped organize an offense that averaged better than 420 yards and 26 points a game. Kepa joined the Tribe in 1984 as a part-time assistant coach working primarily with the defense. The following year Kepa became a full-time assistant and moved to offense where he took charge of the receivers. Kepa primarily recruits the Peninsula and Northern Neck areas in Virginia. He also recruits eastern Pennsylvania. Since joining the offensive staff, Kepa has helped develop one of the most productive offenses in I-AA football. The 1996 team led the conference in total offense, while the 1993 unit finished sixth in the nation in total yards with the second-highest total (5,504) in school history. Overall, the Tribe is averaging nearly 400 yards of total offense per game during Kepa’s 10-year stint as the offensive coordinator. He oversaw the most prolific single-season receiving performance in school history by Dominique Thompson (1,585 yards; 79 receptions; 13 TDs) in 2004. Kepa also mentored the school’s all-time leading receiver, Rich Musinski (‘04), who became just the third player in I-AA history to surpass the 4,000-yard career receiving mark. Kepa’s receivers dominate the W&M record book, as eight of the top 10 all-time career receiving yardage leaders were developed under his mentorship. Prior to Musinski, the most prolific of the group was 2000 graduate Dave Conklin (1996-99), who left the College as the all-time leader in receiving yards (3,269), catches (190) and TD catches (27). Harry Mehre (1985-89) was the first to etch his name into the archives, as he set a then-career receiving yardage mark (2,748) and earned AP All-America honors as a senior. Kepa has also groomed a pair of student-athletes to conference Rookie of the Year honors (Conklin, 1996; Musinski, 2000). In his 22 seasons at W&M, Kepa has tutored eight receivers to 10 allconference citations, including four first-team honorees. Most recently, Thompson (‘05) earned Second Team All-A10 status in 2004. Musinski, who graduated as the school’s all-time leader in receiving yards (4,168), receptions (223) and TD catches (31), was a three-time first team all-league pick from 2001 to 2003. Kepa grew up in northern Indiana and attended Bishop Noll Institute, where he lettered four years in football. After graduation in 1975, he accepted a football scholarship at St. Joseph’s College in Indiana. He led the Pumas at quarterback and defensive back before a knee injury ended his playing career. He continued at St. Joseph’s as a student assistant coach and graduated in 1979 with a bachelor’s degree in physical education and health. Kepa earned his master’s in health and physical education from Purdue in 1981. Upon completing his master’s, he assisted with the offense and defense at Fenwick High School in Chicago. In 1983, he returned to his undergraduate alma mater for one year as a full-time offensive assistant before joining W&M in 1984. He and his wife, the former Mary Cappuccilli from Indiana, have three children, Christina (21), Nathanial (14) and Nicholas (12).

Bob Solderitch

Assistant Head Coach/OL 11th Season Bob Solderitch, a 1986 graduate and four-year letterwinning center at William and Mary, enters his 11th year with the College as the offensive line coach. He assumed the duties of assistant head coach in 2000. Solderitch also served as an offensive assistant at W&M from 1986-90. Solderitch recruits the Tidewater area for the Tribe, as well as the entire state of North Carolina. He also handles working with transfer students. In his first season as a full-time assistant (1996), he groomed Tribe guard Josh Beyer to consensus first team All-America honors. Fellow guard Dan Rossettini earned multiple all-conference honors under Solderitch, including first team honors in 1997. In 1998, guard Greg Whirley, Jr. capped his career by earning first team all-conference honors, while Matt Mazefsky earned multiple all-conference citations in his career and All-America recognition after the 2001 season. In 2002, first team all-conference tackle Dwight Beard also earned All-America honors under Solderitch’s tutelage. In all, Solderitch has seen 12 players earn 17 all-conference awards on his watch, including current senior team captain Cody Morris who was a Second Team All-A10 selection in 2004 and a third team selection in 2005. Also in 2005, former team captain Pat Mulloy was a Second Team All-A10 pick. After a brief stint with the Indianapolis Colts, Solderitch returned to his alma mater as a graduate assistant from 1986 to 1990. While earning his MBA at the College, his responsibilities included tight ends, long snappers and organizing the scout team. He also assisted with the offensive line and helped prepare Tribe All-America linemen Scott Perkins and Reggie White. After receiving his master’s, Solderitch was named as the offensive coordinator and offensive line coach at Newport News Apprentice School. He helped guide the team to a 17-9-1 overall record between the 1991 and 1993 seasons. While earning his B.A. in economics as an undergraduate at the College, Solderitch was a three-year starter at offensive center and earned all-state and All-East Coast Athletic Conference honors his junior and senior seasons. In 1985, he was named team captain and won the Tribe’s outstanding lineman award. In 1990, he was named to William and Mary’s 100 Years All-Time squad. Prior to his return to Williamsburg, Solderitch had a two-year stint at the Virginia Military Institute, where he coached both the offensive and defensive lines over two seasons (1994-95). Solderitch graduated from Whitehall High School in 1982, where he was an all-district lineman and member of two East Penn Conference championship teams (1980-81). Solderitch and his wife, Karen, reside in the Williamsburg area.

Assistant Coaches Matt McLeod

Defensive Coordinator/LB Eighth Season Matt McLeod, a seven-year veteran of the Tribe’s defensive staff, enters his second season as the program’s defensive coordinator. In McLeod’s first season as coordinator, the unit showed ability to pull off gamechanging plays and flashes of dominance, particularly at home. Now in his second season, McLeod will oversee a young, but talented, unit that will look to continue to develop consistency and aggression after a solid spring session. McLeod recruits central Virginia, as well as the southern states of Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana for William and Mary. In 2005, McLeod’s defense was responsible for 27 caused turnovers, including 19 interceptions, a figure that matched the sixth-best season total in school history. Four of the picks turned resulted in defensive touchdowns, by four different players, including two at Villanova. The Tribe’s four defensive scores were the most in the Laycock era. The 2005 unit also posted the program’s first shutout since 2001, a 56-0 pasting of Liberty at Zable Stadium, and did not yield a single second-half point through the first three home games. In fact, in those three games, which included top-ranked New Hampshire, the Tribe defense surrendered a total of 135 yards rushing, including a net of just four yards in the fourth quarters combined. A fiery leader, McLeod has motivated and mentored a wealth of allconference talent over his past five seasons on the Williamsburg campus. His first season at the College saw him oversee standout defensive tackle Raheem Walker to All-American honors and First-Team All-Atlantic 10 accolades. In addition, defensive end Chris Stahl earned All-Atlantic 10 recognition under McLeod’s tutelage, and defensive tackle Chad Richards was an all-league pick in 2001, while defensive end Marcus Washington was a third-team all-conference selection in 2002. His move to overseeing the linebackers in 2003 did not stop the all-conference pipeline, as outside linebacker Paul Carpenter earned second-team honors, while then-sophomore Travis McLaurin received a third-team all-league citation. In total, McLeod has guided seven Tribe players to eight all-league awards. McLeod, a former Clemson standout, came to the Williamsburg campus after spending two seasons at his alma mater as a graduate assistant coach (1997-99). While in this capacity, he worked with the Tigers’ defensive staff and was responsible for the linebacking corps. Among the players he tutored was consensus All-American linebacker and 1999 Atlantic Coast Conference Defensive Player of the Year Keith Adams, who went on to become a Butkus Award finalist and 2001 draft pick of the Tennessee Titans. Prior to joining the staff at Clemson, McLeod spent four seasons in the Tigers’ football program and earned four varsity letters at the center position. McLeod, who enjoys fishing and hunting in his spare time, resides in Williamsburg with his wife, Kirsten.

2005 Season Review After an amazing 2004 season, which saw W&M advance to the national semifinals and finish with a No. 3 final national ranking, expectations and hopes for a return trip to the playoffs were high entering the fall of 2005. And after a 5-2 start, which included a 42-10 pasting of topranked New Hampshire at Zable Stadium, the Tribe was well on its way to another postseason berth. But, playoff aspirations and a quest for the 16th winning season in the last 18 years were dashed by a season-ending, four-game losing streak that featured two heart-breaking one-point losses at home. W&M’s four-game slide was its longest since 2003, and at 5-6, the Tribe posted its first sub-.500 season since 2000. With a final 3-5 mark in A10 play, the 2005 campaign also marked W&M’s first sub-.500 conference season joining the A10 in 1993. Despite the unpleasant ending, the 2005 season provided both some memorable and historic moments. Zable Stadium, the Tribe’s venerable home since 1935, saw a new addition with the construction of permanent lights for the playing field and nearby practice field. The state-of-the-art lighting system debuted for the Tribe’s Nov. 5th contest against state-rival James Madison, marking the first regular season night game held at Zable Stadium. In a rematch of the 2004 NCAA Semifinal played under temporary lighting at Zable a season earlier, the Dukes and Tribe once again battled in front of a sellout crowd with JMU pulling out Jake Phillips scores on an 8-yard touchdown run in the second overtime period, giving the Tribe a thrilling, 44-41, victory at Northeastern on a 30-29 victory on a 44-yard field goal with three seconds remaining. Two of the more memorable moments came in back-to-back weeks, Oct. 15. W&M trailed 31-10 before Phillips tossed three fourth-quarter as W&M won its first game over a No. 1 nationally ranked team, defeating touchdown passes to force overtime. New Hampshire on Oct. 1. In front of a rain-soaked crowd, Stephen Cason set the tone by returning the opening kickoff 92 yards for a touchdown and Eljiah Brooks scored four touchdowns on the afternoon to fuel the rout. A week later at Northeastern, redshirt freshman quarterback Jake Phillips came off the bench in the second half and rallied the Tribe from a 31-10 fourth-quarter deficit to force overtime, and W&M eventually prevailed on Phillips’ 8-yard scoring run in the second extra session. The 2005 season also brought to a close the record-breaking career of place-kicker Greg Kuehn, who will leave the College as one of the program’s most decorated athletes. An All-American and former conference special teams player of the year, Kuehn shattered the Atlantic 10 record for career field goals and also set the school standard with 59 field goals, a mark that ranks eighth in NCAA I-AA history. Kuehn also stands as the College’s career scoring leader at 343 points, which also ranks third in NCAA history for kickers. Additionally, Kuehn became the first A10 kicker to earn all-conference honors in each of his four seasons. The 2005 campaign began on the first day of September in Huntington, W.Va., as the Tribe took on Division I-A Marshall. The Thundering Herd struck first on a short field goal, but the Tribe answered quickly with a 47-yard field goal by Kuehn. Then, after trailing 23-10 at the half, Mike Potts threw touchdown passes to Brooks and Tony Viola in the third quarter, and W&M had Marshall on the ropes leading 24-23, before eventually falling 36-24. Again on the road the following week, W&M traveled to historic Lexington, Va., to battle VMI, and be2005 Season Results hind Phillips, the Tribe cruised to a 41-7 victory and its 20th consecutive win over the Keydets.

W&M’s 1967 victory over Navy ranks as one of the biggest upsets in college football history. Most people didn’t give the Tribe a chance. Only Andrew Beyer, in the Washington Post, cautioned that an upset was possible, because of William and Mary’s passing game. Few took such warnings seriously. The odds makers made it a 20-point spread at game time. How big an upset was it? When the NCAA celebrated the first 100 years of college football, they listed the 10 greatest upsets in history.

His main target, wide out Rich Musinski, becomes the Tribe’s all-time receiving yards leader in the season finale against Richmond. 2003 Standout wide receiver Rich Musinski breaks the Atlantic 10 record for career receiving yards with 4,168 yards and is named a first team All-American by the American Football Coaches Association.

He is only the third player in NCAA history to collect more than 4,000 receiving yards. 2004 Tribe senior quarterback Lang Campbell wins the Walter Payton Award, given annually to I-AA’s top offensive player, after leading the College to its first ever 11-win season and first ever appearance in the national semifinals, a Friday night contest against state-rival JMU broadcast to a national television audience from Zable Stadium. Campbell sets single-season records for passing yards (4,305), completions (298) and touchdown passes (30), among others, and was a consensus First Team All-American and the Atlantic 10 Offensive Player of the Year, W&M’s first to earn the award.

Junior defensive end Adam O’Connor also earned All-America honors after piling up eight sacks. 2005 Record-breaking place-kicker Greg Kuehn ends his career as one of the program’s most decorated athletes. An All-American and former conference special teams player of the year, Kuehn shattered the Atlantic 10 record for career field goals and also set the school standard with 59 field goals, a mark that ranks eighth in NCAA I-AA history. Kuehn also stands as the College’s career scoring leader at 343 points, which also ranks third in NCAA history for kickers. Additionally, Kuehn became the first A10 kicker to earn all-conference honors in each of his four seasons. Also in 2005, permanent lights are installed at Zable Stadium and the Tribe hosts JMU, once again in front of a sellout crowd, in the first regular season night game at Zable.

1996 The College wins its first Yankee Conference title in the league’s last season of competition. On its way to the league title, the College finishes with a school-record No. 5 final national ranking, ties the school record for wins (10) and makes a quarterfinal showing in the NCAA Div. I-AA playoffs. The team also takes home the Lambert Cup and ECAC Team of the Year trophies. OG Josh Beyer and safety Darren Sharper earn multiple first team All-America honors, while Sharper becomes the third Tribe player to be named as the Yankee Conference’s Defensive Player of the Year. As a second-round selection of the Green Bay Packers, Sharper also becomes the highest NFL draft pick in school history.

The Payton Award After leading the College to one of its most successful seasons in school history, quarterback Lang Campbell put a fitting end to what was a magical football season by being named as the recipient of the 2004 Payton Award at the 18th annual I-AA College Football Awards Ceremony held on December 16th in Chattanooga, TN. Campbell, became the first Tribe player to earn the award, which is presented annually to the most outstanding offensive player in the I-AA ranks, by virtue of a national vote of college sports information directors and selected media. Campbell established school single-season records for passing yards (3,988), total offense (4,305) and touchdowns (30), as well as touchdowns responsible for (38, as he also had eight rushing TDs). The Winchester, VA native led William & Mary to a share of the Atlantic 10 title and its first appearance in the NCAA I-AA semifinals, along with the first 11-win season in the 110-year history of the Tribe’s program. At the conclusion of the regular season, Campbell was honored as the A-10 Offensive Player of the Year, becoming the first player in the Tribe’s 12-year association with the league to earn the award. He earned the A10’s highest individual offensive honor as the key component in a Tribe attack that averaged over 430 yards and 34 points a contest. The history and economics major helped power the squad to a 11-3 final record, a share of the A10 Title and a school-record No. 3 seed in the NCAA Championship field by leading the conference in seven different categories, including passing yards, passing efficiency and total offense. By ending the season leading the sixth-ranked Tribe to a 38-14 win over arch rival Richmond with 291 yards and four touchdowns on 21 completions (in 28 attempts), Campbell earned his third A10 Offensive Player of the Week honor. Campbell’s season average of 284.9 passing yards per game is a school-record and was the top figure in the A10. Campbell became just the fourth Tribe quarterback to throw for 3,000 yards in a season and joins former All-American signal-caller Mike Cook (1995-98) as the College’s only quarterbacks to accomplish the trick in just 11 games (Cook threw for 3,028 in 1998). Campbell’s 3,988 passing yards shatters the school’s previous single-season total of 3,414, set by Chris Hakel during a 13-game 1990 season. By completing an eye-catching .655 of his attempts (298 of 455), Campbell had the third best completion percentage in school history. In fact, he ended his career by completing better than 50% of his attempts in all but one of his 24 career starts. For his career, Campbell has a completion percentage of .649, which ranks him second all-time at the College (trailing only Shawn Knight’s career mark of .655). Campbell ended the regular season with just one INT in 326 attempts. His minuscule interception percentage of .31 was the best 11-game average in the nation among all levels (the next closest total was Georgetown’s Andrew Crawford, who sported a .64 average, with just one INT in 156 attempts) and an NCAA regular season record. Campbell ended the regular season by throwing 235 consecutive passes without an interception and had a TD-to-INT ratio of 21:1, which was far and away the nation’s best total among all quarterbacks. He also has rushed for eight touchdowns and 317 yards. The semifinal match up with eighth-ranked James Madison was the Tribe’s eighth game against a ranked opponent in 14 contests. By running up 335 yards of total offense against the Dukes, Campbell provided just one more example of his ability to excel when the spotlight is shining brightest. In the eight games against ranked opponents in 2004, he averaged 291.1 passing yards per game (2,330), completed 66.1% of his attempts (154 of 233) and accounted for 18 touchdowns. In his lone outing against I-A competition, at the University of North Carolina, Campbell accounted for four touchdowns and 357 total yards in the team’s hard-fought 49-38 loss. He etched his name throughout the College’s record book in just two years a starter, ranking fifth in career passing yards (6,494), fourth in total offense (7,149) and third in touchdown passes (54). A four-time honor roll student at the College, Campbell graduated with GPA of better than 3.3 and with a degree in history and economics. Not only a leader on the field, Campbell was active in helping chart the school’s athletic policies, as they relate to athletes, by being a member of the school’s Student Athletics Advisory Committee. He also made an impact for several local charities, including Avalon (a house for abused women and children) and St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.

In 1987, the NCAA awarded Zable with its highest honor, the Theodore Roosevelt Award. Zable ensured that his legacy would remain with W&M when, in 1990, he and his wife Betty (Class of 1940) made a commitment towards athletics, student aid and other needs. In recognition of the gesture, the Collegeʼs Board of Visitors approved the naming of the on-campus football stadium as Walter J. Zable Stadium at Cary Field.

Tribe in the Pros

W&M has been producing professional football players since 1923, when Isham Hardy began his four-year pro career with the Akron Pros. Over the years, the College has manufactured a multitude of athletes who went on to star at the professional level in leagues ranging from the NFL and NFL Europe to the Canadian Football League and the Arena League. In 2005, six former Tribe players appeared on NFL rosters, including 1996 graduate, Minnesota Viking Darren Sharper, who went on to earn his third trip to the Pro Bowl after ranking second in the league with nine interceptions. This past spring, former teammates Lang Campbell (‘05) and Rich Musinski (‘04) were reunited in NFL Europe, playing for the Berlin Thunder. Also, Adam O’Connor (‘06) signed a free-agent contract with the Carolina Panthers.

Walk-on Hall of Fame “There has been a tradition of success for walk-on athletes in our program ... I think it exemplifies the importance we place on work ethic here ... If a player comes to the College and is willing to do the work in the classroom and on the field, he will get an equal opportunity to play.” - Tribe Head Coach Jimmye Laycock In athletics, players develop at different rates and react to competitive situations in different ways. For those reasons, the W&M football coaching staff understands the impact walk-on players, athletes not presented athletic scholarships directly out of high school, can make on the program. W&M has been fortunate to attract many top-quality players as walk-ons who have gone on to earn scholarships and become important parts of the success of Tribe football. Many of these players, wanting to be part of a traditional power like W&M, have turned down other scholarship offers in favor of walking onto the Tribe program with the hopes of earning a scholarship. These players’ dedication to Tribe football have been rewarded by earning scholarships and making the most of their opportunity, on and off the field. Without quality walk-on players the Tribe could not continue to perform at such a high level on the national scene. Notable players who came to W&M as walk-ons include 2004 Walter Payton Award-winning quarterback Lang Campbell, 1995 Yankee Conference Defensive Player of the Year Jason Miller, record-setting wide out Josh Whipple and all-conference safety Sean McDermott. Largely due to their unselfish approach to the game and their consummate team play, a number of former walk-ons have gone on to serve as team captains at W&M, including Mike McGowan and Stefon Moody in 1996, McDermott in 1997, Marc Matthie in 2001, both Campbell and Wade Harrell in 2004 and Pat Mulloy in 2005. In just two seasons as a starter, Campbell etched his name throughout the College record books, ranking fifth in career passing yards (6,494), fourth in total offense (7,149) and third in touchdown passes (54). In 2004, Campbell established school single-season records for passing yards (3,988), total offense (4,305) and touchdowns (30), as well as touchdowns responsible for (38, as he also had eight rushing TDs). The Winchester, VA native led William & Mary to a share of the Atlantic 10 title and its first appearance in the NCAA I-AA semifinals, along with the first 11-win season in the 111-year history of the Tribe’s program. At the conclusion of the regular season, Campbell was honored as the A-10 Offensive Player of the Year, becoming the first player in the Tribe’s 12-year association with the league to earn the award. Former W&M defensive back Palmer Scarritt, who ranks second on the W&M all-time punt return yardage list, came to the program as a walk-on. Former defensive line walk-on Alan Garlic set W&M’s career sack record at 21. Lynchburg’s Charlie White came to W&M as an undersized center and went on to earn second-team all-conference honors in 1995. Receiver Mark Compher came to Williamsburg as a walk-on and established a then-W&M record for single-season receiving yards with 1,180 in 1990. One of Compher’s teammates, fullback Tyrone Shelton, went from walk-on to a career that saw him rush for 2,534 yards, the fifth-highest total in W&M history, and become an NFL Draft selection. In 2002, Andrew Solomon led the Tribe in tackles after joining the squad as a walk-on his freshman year. The following lists show some of the most prominent W&M players who have come to the Tribe as walk-ons since 1980. Each of these studentathletes went on to earn starting positions and, more importantly, bachelor’s degrees from the College.

President Gene R. Nichol Gene R. Nichol President

Gene R. Nichol became the 26th president of the College of William and Mary on July 1, 2005. Before returning to Williamsburg, where he taught two decades ago, Nichol was Burton Craige Professor and Dean of the law school at the University of North Carolina. He served as Law Dean at the University of Colorado from 1988 to 1995, and as James Gould Cutler Professor and Director of the Institute of Bill of Rights Law at William and Mary from 1985 to 1988. Nichol was also a faculty member at the University of Florida and West Virginia University. He founded the Byron White Center of Constitutional Law at the University of Colorado (1990) and the Center for Civil Rights at the University of North Carolina (2001). Nichol teaches courses in constitutional law and civil rights. He is the co-author of Federal Courts: Cases, Comments, and Questions (West, 2000) and a contributor to Where We Stand: Voices of Southern Dissent (NewSouth Books, 2004). Nichol has published articles and essays in the Harvard Law Review, the Yale Law Journal, the University of Chicago Law Review, the Michigan Law Review, the Pennsylvania Law Review, the California Law Review, the Virginia Law Review and an array of other leading legal journals. From 1998 to 1999, he was a political columnist for the Rocky Mountain News and the Colorado Daily. From 1999 to 2005, he was a regular op-ed writer for the Raleigh News & Observer. He has also written for The Nation and other periodicals. Nichol has been significantly involved in public affairs. He has testified before a number of committees of the United States Congress and various state legislatures. In 1991, he was appointed special master by a three-judge federal court in Colorado to mediate a redistricting dispute between the governor and the legislature. The accord was ratified by statute. A year later he helped head the Colorado Reapportionment Commission. In 2004, Nichol led the North Carolina Bi-Partisan Commission on Lobbying Reform.

Legislation was passed enacting commission recommendations. He ran unsuccessfully for national political office while in Colorado. He has been elected to membership in the American Law Institute and the American Bar Foundation Fellows. In 2003, Nichol won the American Bar Association’s Edward R. Finch Award for delivering the nation’s best Law Day address. Two years later, Governor Michael Easley inducted Nichol into the Order of the Long Leaf Pine, the state of North Carolina’s highest civilian honor, and the national judicial access organization, Equal Justice Works, named him pro bono law dean of the year. Nichol attended Oklahoma State University, where he received a degree in philosophy and played varsity football. He obtained his J.D. from the University of Texas , graduating Order of the Coif in 1976. He is married to Glenn George, a scholar of employment and labor law who joins the faculty at the William and Mary School of Law this fall. They have three daughters: Jesse (18), Jenny (17), and Soren (13).

This fall President Nichol will again teach his freshman seminar “The Constitution and the Supreme Court.” Like all of William and Mary’s freshman seminars, the class is a small, reading- and writing-intensive exploration of a faculty member’s area of expertise--in President Nichol’s case, civil rights and constitutional law.

Chancellor Sandra Day O’Connor Sandra Day O’Connor Chancellor

Sandra Day O’Connor, who in July of 2005 announced her intention to retire as Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court, was named 23rd Chancellor of the College of William and Mary by its Board of Visitors on October 4, 2005. Justice O’Connor succeeds Dr. Henry A. Kissinger, former United States Secretary of State, who was appointed in 2000. The post of Chancellor has been an important one since the College was chartered in 1693 by King William III and Queen Mary II of Great Britain. Until 1776, the Chancellor was an English subject–usually the Archbishop of Canterbury or the Bishop of London–who served as the College’s advocate to the crown, while the president oversaw the day-to-day activities of the Williamsburg campus. Following the Revolutionary War, George Washington was appointed as the first American Chancellor; later President John Tyler held the post. The first woman to serve on the United States Supreme Court, Justice O’Connor was born in El Paso, Texas, on March 26, 1930. She earned a B.A. in economics (magna cum laude) from Stanford University, and went on to receive an LL.B. from Stanford Law School, where she graduated third in her class. Her classmate, the late Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist, graduated first in the class. She served as Deputy County Attorney of San Mateo County, California, from 1952 to 1953, and as a civilian attorney for the Quartermaster Market Center, Frankfurt, Germany, from 1954 to 1957. From 1958 to 1960, she practiced law in Maryvale, Arizona, and served as Assistant Attorney General of Arizona from 1965 to 1969. She was appointed to the Arizona State Senate in 1969, and was subsequently reelected to a pair two-year terms. In 1975, she was elected Judge of the Maricopa County Superior Court and served until 1979, when she was appointed to the Arizona Court of Appeals. President Ronald Reagan nominated her as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, and she took her seat September 25, 1981. She is married to John Jay O’Connor III, and the couple has three sons: Scott, Brian and Jay. “Through her remarkable combination of wisdom, courage, judgment, and skill, Justice O’Connor has become one of the most influential and effective jurists in American history,” said President Gene R. Nichol. “I am thrilled that she is willing to share her ability and rich experience with William and Mary students. As a former constitutional lawyer, I am also honored to welcome one of my heroes to the College community.”

Athletics Directors Terry Driscoll

Athletics Director With an extensive resumé that includes four years as a studentathlete, a professional playing career and numerous jobs in the athletic business world, Edward C. “Terry” Driscoll is entering his 11th year as the athletics director at the College of William and Mary. Driscoll’s tenure has seen a wealth of improvements across the board in the W&M athletics department, from new and refurbished facilities to increased fundraising for the Tribe. In addition, the Tribe has reached all-time highs in the annual Director’s Cup rankings that summarize excellence in all sports. Upon the death of legendary Tribe athletics director John Randolph, former W&M president Timothy J. Sullivan chose Driscoll to be the new leader of the department, saying “Terry brings outstanding management and leadership skills to the position.” Since Driscoll took over as athletics director, he has overseen the construction of more than $16 million in new facilities , including Plumeri Park (baseball), Albert-Daly Field (soccer, lacrosse) and the Busch Courts (tennis). That figure will continue to increase significantly in the future, as Driscoll announced plans last year to build the $11 million Jimmye Laycock Football Complex at Zable Stadium (see page six). Already, the football program has seen the installation of permanent lighting, a $650,000 project, and a new state-of-the-art artificial playing surface, Field Turf Pro, a $840,000 project, at Zable Stadium in the last 10 months. Driscoll has also increased the annual fundraising totals for non-capital projects from $1.36 million in 1995 to around $2.7 million currently. He also has served on numerous conference and NCAA committees, including a stint as president of the Atlantic 10 Football Conference. The Tribe has also had outstanding success across the board since Driscoll came to Williamsburg. In 2002-03, W&M had a school-record 10 teams compete in the NCAA Tournament. Four teams won conference titles, while six were in the top 25 at the end of their respective seasons. One of the department’s goals each year is to finish in the top 100 in the annual Director’s Cup rankings, and that has happened in all but one of the years that Driscoll has been the AD, with a high ranking of 42 occurring in 1997. In addition, W&M had captured 84 CAA Championships coming into the 2005-06 school year, by far the highest total among all conference schools. Driscoll’s leadership skills were developed in his collegiate years. As a student-athlete at Boston College, Driscoll captained the basketball team to the National Invitation Tournament Finals as a senior, and was named the tournament MVP. In addition to being named an All-American, his success in the classroom with a major in biology garnered him an Academic All-America honor. After graduating from BC, he was the fourth pick of the NBA Draft, selected by the Detroit Pistons, just three picks after the Milwaukee Bucks chose UCLA’s Lew Alcindor, later to be known as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Driscoll chose to play a year in Italy first, but then returned to the U.S. to play for the Pistons, Washington Bullets and Milwaukee Bucks before going back to Italy as a player and coach until 1980. Driscoll then entered the corporate world in 1980, working for Kazmaier Associates, Inc., an international sporting goods sales and sports marketing firm. After Kazmaier purchased Bike Athletic in 1986, KSG Inc. was formed with the objective of becoming the first, and only, national sales agency in the sporting goods industry. By 1987, Driscoll was president of the company and had expanded the agency to all 50 states just two years later. In early 1990, Driscoll’s contribution to a marketing research project for the NCAA was the initial step moving him from product marketing and sales to sports marketing and management. The result of the project was a joint venture between Kazmaier Associates and Host

Communication - with Driscoll being named managing director and chief operating officer of NCAA International. In 1993, Driscoll diversified his experience in the athletic world by working as the executive director of the 1994 World Cup site in Boston. In September of that year, Driscoll was again enlisted to launch a new business, Eagle International Group, an event management and services company. As vice president, Driscoll worked with Hawaii Pacific Sports as well as organizing the Women’s World Volleyball Grand Prix, a five-week competition in Honolulu. Driscoll resides in Williamsburg with his wife, Susan. The couple has two children – Keith, a 1997 graduate of Holy Cross and Leslie, a 2001 graduate of William and Mary.

Barbara Blosser Senior Associate Athletics Director

After serving 12 years as the College’s associate athletics director, Barbara Blosser was promoted to her current position of senior associate athletic director in April of 2004. Blosser started her career at William and Mary as the head women’s basketball coach in 1978 and guided the Tribe to a VAIAW crown in her first season with a school-record 16 wins (16-13). Her 1980 Tribe team (11-14) placed third, while the 1981 squad (16-16) was VAIAW runner-up. She was also at the helm during the 1984-85 season when William and Mary made the jump to NCAA Division I. Overall, she finished her coaching career with 115 wins, 84 of which came at William and Mary. When the College’s men’s and women’s athletic programs merged in May of 1986, she moved to administration, first serving as the Assistant to the Associate Athletics Director. Over the past 16 years, her administrative responsibilities at W&M have included the monitoring of financial aid matters, coordinating the scheduling of athletic facilities, supervision of coaches and staff and, currently, serving as the person primarily responsible for administering the day-to-day operations of the department. From October 1992 to June 1993 and August 1995 to July 1996, Blosser also served as acting athletics director in an interim capacity. For her efforts, she was named the first recipient of the John Randolph Inspiration Award. Blosser has served on various committees such as the NCAA Strategic Planning Committee and the Colonial Athletic Association Competition Committee. Blosser began her coaching career at the helm of the women’s basketball program at Ashland College in Ohio. During two seasons there, she led the Eagles to successive 15-7 and 16-8 ledgers. Her 1977 squad won the AIAW Region V Championship, while her 1978 team took the OAISW Small College title. A former three-sport standout at Ohio State, Blosser graduated Cum Laude in 1975 with a Bachelor of Science degree in physical education. At OSU, she was selected to both Phi Beta Kappa and Mortar Board. She competed in basketball, field hockey and tennis and captained both the basketball and field hockey squads her senior year. She went on to earn her master’s degree from the University of North Carolina Greensboro in 1978.

W&M AD Terry Driscoll had his jersey number retired by the Boston College Athletics Department in 1999, while Senior Associate AD Barbara Blosser was in the first class of female athletes inducted into the Ohio State Athletics Hall of Fame in 1993.

Established in 1948 to create support for William and Mary Athletics, the Tribe Club is made up of alumni and friends of the College’s athletics programs. Due to the fact that W&M receives no aid from the state for its sports programs, the Tribe Club is the sole provider of scholarships for William and Mary’s student-athletes. Additionally, money raised annually by the Tribe Club helps defray a portion of the operating expenses for program support. Whether you are a former Tribe student-athlete, a proud alum, a Tribe parent or a fan of William and Mary Athletics, you are invited to join the Tribe Club. By donating to the unrestricted fund or to a specific sport, you are providing opportunities for many young men and women to experience both academic and athletic excellence here at the College. In addition to supporting our student-athletes with generous gifts, Tribe Club members receive exclusive benefits based on their giving level, as well as invitations to tailgates, pre-game and halftime events, golf outings and regional Tribe Club social events. To join, you can make a contribution to the Tribe Club online at www.tribeclub.com or send your donation to PO Box 399, Williamsburg, VA, 23187. Thanks to all those who are loyal members of the Tribe Club family. Your support of our gifted and talented athletes is truly appreciated. We could not succeed without you!

Athletic Success A charter member of the CAA 1986, W&M has been the CAA’s most successful program over the past two decades. The 2005-06 year was another banner season for the College, as it added three more conference titles. The Tribe has now captured 84 total CAA Championships since 1986, over 30 more than the closest rival. The men’s cross country team won its sixth consecutive title, while the women’s cross country team captured its third-straight. The women’s track and field team completed the sweep in the spring, bringing its sixth consecutive championship back to Williamsburg. Additionally, the men’s gymnastics team won the ECAC Championship, its third overall. Individually, women’s tennis standout Megan Moulton-Levy earned All-America honors after advancing to the “Final Four” of the NCAA Singles Tournament. The athletic achievements this past season continue the program’s latest run of success, which saw W&M finish 76th in the 2004-05 NACDA Director’s Cup standings as the highest ranked team in the CAA.

Page Headlines William and Mary offers a broad range of competitive opportunities for our students, including intercollegiate athletics, club and intramural competition, and a broad array of recreational sports, both team and individual. For intercollegiate athletes, the balance between academics and athletics is appropriate and student-athletes excel at both. Competitive athletics is an integral and meaningful part of the William and Mary experience and contributes in unique and fundamental ways to the educational mission of the College and to the diverse nature of our community. The task force feels that William and Mary represents a national “Green and Gold standard” for balanced excellence and unassailable integrity in athletics. -- 2006 Athletic Task Force Report

2006

Academic Excellence The Tribe’s athletic accomplishments do not come at the expense of its student’s academic responsibilities, as W&M ranked fourth, the highest of any scholarship-granting school and of any public university, in the nation among institutions with two or more Division I teams when the NCAA released its inaugural Academic Progress Rate scores in March of 2005. This year, the NCAA specifically listed 18 W&M athletic squads as recipients of its public recognition award for 2005-06. The Tribe teams recognized were baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s cross country, football, men’s and women’s golf, men’s and women’s gymnastics, men’s and women’s indoor and outdoor track and field, men’s soccer, men’s and women’s tennis and volleyball. Since 1992, 36 Tribe athletes have been designated Academic All-Americans, including Keith Bechtol, who was a third team selection in the spring, and since 1996, 39 student-athletes have been members of Phi Beta Kappa. In 2002-03, the CAA created a ScholarAthlete of the Year Award in each of its 21 sports, and not surprisingly, William and Mary has set the pace with 18, including Keith Bechtol and Meghan Bishop in both men’s and women’s cross country and track and field this past year, while former men’s basketball standout Adam Hess was named the conference’s male scholar athlete of the year in 2004. Also, men’s gymnast Jeff Jaekle and women’s gymnast Christina Padilla were honored as ECAC Scholar Athletes of the Year in 2006. In addition, three of William and Mary’s five Rhodes scholars participated in varsity sports.

2006

The broadcast team of Jay Colley and Bob Sheeran will once again relay the excitement of Tribe football over the airwaves. Play-by-play chief Colley also covers the Tribe basketball squad. A mass communications graduate of Middle Tennessee State University, Colley has been a fixture of the Tribe’s sports broadcasts for 20 years. In 2002, Colley was granted honorary alumnus status by William and Mary. Bob Sheeran has never drifted far from the beat of W&M sports. A 1967 alumnus of the College, Sheeran served as W&M’s sports information director for 16 years before entering private business in 1985. He has teamed up with Colley for the last 17 years as part of the football broadcasts and has also served as an integral part of all W&M Quarterback Club booster functions since his graduation. A testament to his dedication to the College was witnessed in 2003 as an endowment was organized in his name by HAYFARL (a W&M football booster organization) to provide scholarship support for a Tribe walk-on football player. Complete information on the William and Mary Football Radio Network can be found on TribeAthletics. com.

The Jimmye Laycock Show Every Thursday afternoon, from 12 to 1 p.m., during the regular season, join Bob Sheeran and the coach for the Jimmye Laycock Show at the Backfin Restaurant on Strawberry Plains Road in Williamsburg.

Lunch is served promptly at 12, followed by opening statements by Laycock and a question-andanswer session for members of the media.
