head coach sean mcdonnell

Sean McDonnell, the 2005 Eddie Robinson National Coach of the Year, begins his 12th season as head coach of the University of New Hampshire football program with an impressive 80-52 overall record after leading the 2009 Wildcats to a 10-3 record, a sixth consecutive appearance in NCAA FCS postseason play and a fifth trip to the quarterfinals in that span. In the past six years, McDonnell has guided UNH to a 57-20 record (.740 winning percentage) with back-to-back North Division conference titles in 2004 & 2005 and 2008 & 2009. McDonnell has returned UNH football to the upper echelon of the FCS and has recruited several All-Americans and NFL-caliber players, including the likes of Walter Payton Award-winning QB Ricky Santos and the all-time NCAA FCS record holder for TD catches in WR David Ball, who surpassed Jerry Rice’s college mark of 51 TDs with his 58. Ball has spent time with the Jets and Bears of the NFL. Tight end Scott Sicko received multiple All-America awards and signed as a free agent with the Dallas Cowboys. Last season, UNH continued its success against Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) teams with a hard-fought 23-16 victory at Ball State University. It marked the Wildcats’ fifth consecutive win against an FBS opponent; the ‘Cats have also defeated Army, Marshall, Northwestern and Rutgers since ’04. New Hampshire went on to finish the 2009 season ranked seventh in the nation at 10-3 overall, including 6-0 at Cowell Stadium, to mark the fourth time in six years the team reached double digits in victories. In front of 14,811 fans on Homecoming Weekend, UNH was the only team to defeat eventual national champion Villanova. In their sixth NCAA tournament appearance in as many years, the ’09 Wildcats traveled to Louisiana to play McNeese State in the first round and advanced to the quarterfinals with a 49-13 victory. In 2008, the team topped FBS team Army, won the CAA North Division and defeated Southern Illinois in the first round of the NCAAs en route to a 10-3 record. UNH finished the season ranked No. 7 or No. 8 in most national polls. McDonnell was also honored as the New England Coach of the Year (FCS level) for the second time in his tenure at UNH. In 2007, the Wildcats were 7-5 overall and just narrowly missed defeating No. 1 Northern Iowa in the first round of the NCAAs, losing on a last-minute TD, 38-35. The Wildcat offense once again averaged over 400 yards per contest. UNH finished ranked No. 16 in the nation. The Wildcats were ranked as high as No. 1 in the nation in 2006 and finished the campaign ranked No. 6 as the ‘Cats defeated Hampton in the first round (41-38) to advance to the NCAA quarterfinals. In 2005, McDonnell was honored as the Eddie Robinson National Coach of the Year by the Sports Network after leading his Wildcats to a record-breaking 11-2 season, an Atlantic 10 Championship title, and a second straight NCAA appearance in the I-AA quarterfinals. A 1978 graduate of UNH, McDonnell had his Wildcats ranked No. 1 in the nation at the end of the 2005 regular season. In 2005, the Wildcats played two nationally-televised NCAA tournament games on ESPN at Cowell Stadium as UNH defeated Colgate in the first round, but lost a hard-fought battle to Northern Iowa in the NCAA quarterfinals. In 2004, his hard work rebuilding the program paid off in a 10-3 overall record and a 6-2 mark in the Atlantic 10 Football Conference, which earned the team the Northern Division Championship title. UNH earned a bid to the NCAA I-AA Championships for the first time since 1994 and advanced to the quarterfinals, further than any other UNH team in the history of the program. UNH won its first ever NCAA contest under McDonnell, upsetting Georgia Southern in the first round by a 27-23 margin on national television. McDonnell was named a finalist for the Eddie Robinson National Coach of the Year and was selected District Coach of the Year by the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA). In 2003, UNH steadily improved as the season progressed and the Wildcats went on to win three of their last four contests, including an upset victory over top 25 squad Maine; the ‘Cats also toppled nationally-ranked UMass, 31-14, at Cowell Stadium. The team’s 5-7 record could have easily been above .500, as UNH narrowly lost to No. 1-ranked Delaware on a missed field goal in the closing seconds, and UNH was driving for the game-winning TD late in the Division I contest at Central Michigan, but ran out of time. In 2002, McDonnell’s offense was one of the most prolific in I-AA football and averaged 449.2 yards per contest and 36.7 ppg. In the victories over the likes of Hampton, James Madison, Dartmouth and Massachusetts the ‘Cats scored 37 ppg and scored over 40 points in two of the victories. UNH finished with a 4-7 overall record in 2001. In 2000, the Wildcats were ranked as high as 23rd in the nation and knocked off three top 25 opponents, including Hampton (31-17), Massachusetts (24-16) and a huge upset victory over No. 2 ranked Delaware on Nov. 4 (45-44 OT). Injuries down the stretch squashed UNH’s chances for a playoff berth after opening the campaign with a 4-0 record, its best start since 1977 when the Wildcats won seven straight games. UNH finished the season with a winning 6-5 record and tied for fourth in the Atlantic 10 Football Conference. As a result of his outstanding coaching performance, McDonnell was named the Gridiron Club Of Greater Boston College Head Coach Of The Year. In his 1999 rookie year as head coach, McDonnell led the Wildcats to a 5-6 overall record with impressive victories against the likes of Northeastern (33-31), Connecticut (43-18) and Maine (31-20). Under McDonnell and his staff, the Wildcats featured a crafty and wide open offensive attack that led the Atlantic 10 with an average of 457.3 yards per game. McDonnell, who served as offensive coordinator for the Wildcats for five seasons prior to being hired, was named the 19th head coach of the UNH football program on April 22, 1999. McDonnell replaced legendary head coach Bill Bowes, who retired after 27 years as the mentor of the Wildcats. McDonnell served eight seasons as a Wildcat assistant and completed his fifth in 1998 as the team’s offensive coordinator. McDonnell rejoined the Wildcats as an assistant coach before the 1991 spring camp, and in his first two seasons, McDonnell worked with the quarterbacks and receivers. In 1997, McDonnell was named the recipient of “The College Assistant Coach Award” by the Gridiron Club of Greater Boston in recognition of his quality of performance, loyalty and longevity. A native of Saratoga Springs, N.Y., McDonnell was a standout defensive back for UNH. He started for the 1975 and 1976 Yankee Conference championship teams and came back to start for the 1978 squad. After his graduation from UNH in 1978, he spent one year as an assistant coach at Manchester (N.H.) Memorial High School and followed that up with a three-year stint at Manchester West (1980-82). McDonnell worked as the defensive coordinator at Hamilton College for two seasons (1983-84) and subsequently spent three years (1985-87) coaching the receivers and tight ends at former conference-rival Boston University. During the 1988 campaign, McDonnell served as a graduate assistant coach at Boston College. He spent two seasons as an assistant at Columbia (1989-90) prior to his coaching debut in Durham. Sean and his wife, Jenny, live in Durham with their two boys, Timmy and Tommy.

2010 UNIVERSITY OF NEW HAMPSHIRE FOOTBALL 


UNH FOOTBALL - 6 STRAIGHT NCAA APPEARANCES, 26 ALL-AMERICANS

2010 SEASON PREVIEW

The University of New Hampshire football team is riding an unprecedented string of success over the past six years with six straight appearances in the NCAA FCS Playoffs, while advancing to the quarterfinals of the playoffs in five of those six years. During the same six-year timespan, the Wildcats have recorded an impressive 57-20 record under head coach Sean McDonnell, and not even FBS teams have been safe during this successful run, as all five faced by the Wildcats have fallen to the ‘Cats, including the likes of Ball State, Army, Marshall, Northwestern and Rutgers. Players have come and gone during the stretch, but now McDonnell will take his 2010 squad into battle against arguably one of the most difficult schedules any team in UNH history has faced. UNH will play Pittsburgh as its FBS opponent and take on every team in the CAA, except for Delaware, after the conference lost both Hofstra and Northeastern when both programs were cut at their respective schools. Throw in the likes of Central Connecticut and Lehigh as non-conference opponents and UNH football will have its work cut out for it in 2010. However, plenty of talent remains on the roster this season with 44 letterwinners returning for action this season and 14 starters back, including five on offense and seven on defense, giving the Wildcats plenty of experience to build this year’s version of the team around. Nobody on the schedule has a more experienced quarterback than senior R.J. Toman from Mission Viejo, Calif., and the Wildcats have tremendous experience returning in the trenches with four out of five linemen returning on both the offensive and defensive lines. Throw in the fact that UNH’s entire defensive backfield has seen quality playing time as a key reserve or starter, such as senior defensive back Dino Vasso and senior strong safety Hugo Souza, and the recipe is ready for another successful season in Durham. QUARTERBACK: The Wildcats return senior quarterback R.J. Toman to the fold and he is coming off another outstanding season as the starting field general, entering his third straight fall as the starter. In 2009, Toman completed 174 of 320 pass attempts for an average of 181.8 passing yards per contest. He also passed for 15 touchdowns last season and ran in four more for the Wildcats. An outstanding dual threat as a runner and passer in UNH’s spread offense, he has been one of the nation’s most productive quarterbacks. So far in his career, he has passed for 47 touchdowns and has compiled an amazing total of 5,601 passing yards, placing him fourth all-time at UNH heading into his senior season. Toman will be pushed this year by another up-and-coming quarterback in junior Kevin Decker. Decker saw limited action last season and passed the football 60 times, completing 33 for 380 yards and five touchdowns. His improvement has been steady over the past few seasons, giving UNH

Sean Jellison two interchangeable players at quarterback if needed. RUNNING BACK: Senior running back Sean Jellison has patiently been waiting in the wings for his chance as the starter and this may be the year for the hard-working Granite-Stater. At 5-8, 210 pounds, he is a very tough, hard-nosed runner who has gained some experience every season. Last season was Jellison’s most productive as a Wildcat, seeing action in all 13 contests, carrying the football 97 times for 455 yards and scoring seven touchdowns on the ground for the Wildcats. He averaged 32.6 rushing yards per game and 4.4 yards per run. He was also effective as a receiver with 19 catches for 169 yards and one touchdown as UNH’s fourth most productive pass-catcher. Also returning this season at running back is sophomore Dontra Peters, who saw action in 12 games last season and carried the football 37 times for 207 yards and two rushing touchdowns. He and Jellison offer two different running styles as Jellison is more of a power runner and Peters provides more speed and quickness out of the backfield. Another back to keep an eye on is redshirt freshman Chris Setian from East Longmeadow, Mass. He has good size (5-8, 226) and speed at running back and adds very talented depth in the offensive backfield. The Wildcats will miss the services of graduated senior Chad Kackert, who rushed for 780 yards and 10 touchdowns. He was signed as a free agent by the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars. WIDE RECEIVER: Over the past six years wide receivers have graduated and younger players have stepped up to fill the

void. This year the Wildcats graduated starting wide out J.T. Wright and his 40 catches for 437 yards and one touchdown, as well as senior Travis Negron and his 15 catches for 214 yards and one touchdown. Stepping up for UNH will be 5-8, 166-pound senior wide receiver Terrance Fox, who missed last season. In 2008, he was one of the Wildcats’ most productive receivers, finishing the year third in receiving yards with 36 catches for 490 yards and four touchdowns. He was also outstanding as a rusher with 23 carries for 115 yards, averaging an impressive 5.0 yards per carry. Also returning as a starter from 2009 is senior Kevon Mason. At 6-4, 225 pounds he is a big target at split end. He finished last season with 21 catches for 261 yards and one touchdown as the team’s third-leading receiver. Expected to be the starter at the other wide receiver position is sophomore flanker Joey Orlando (5-11, 197), who played in all 13 contests in 2009. He is coming off an impressive spring practice season and last year caught 15 passes for 281 yards and two touchdowns with a superb average of 18.7 yards per catch. Throw in the likes of senior Chris Chandler (6-2, 216), who has made a slow but successful return from injury and the very quick and speedy junior Mickey Mangieri (5-10, 180), along with senior Mike Greene (6-2, 198), and the Wildcats have many talented weapons in the wide receiver corps. OFFENSIVE LINE: In the offensive trenches the Wildcats have many options to choose from and plenty of experience returns from last season. In all, four O-Linemen return with starting experience. It all starts at left tackle where 6-6, 302-pound senior Seth Price is back for another year. The former UNH basketball player continues to increase in size and his quick feet have made him a strong candidate for post-season honors in 2010. He has been a starter the past two seasons. Returning as the starter at left guard is junior George Pecoraro (6-3,

Terrance Fox 285), who was one of the steadier contributors on the O-Line last season. UNH lost Tom Neill to graduation, but sophomore center Chris Zarkoskie (6-1, 290) has seen plenty of action and even pushed for the starting job in 2010. He is a very capable option in the middle for the ‘Cats. The relative newcomer for the first line is redshirt freshman Seamus O’Neill (6-3, 280), who is expected to take over the starting job at right guard. Another Granite Stater, O’Neill’s father played at UNH and Seamus comes to UNH out of Manchester Central High School. Last, but not least, is returning sophomore starter Mickey DiLima, who earned his baptism under fire and showed very steady improvement as he went through the season. At 6-4, 317, he has a huge frame to play at right tackle and the coaching staff is looking for even more from DiLima in 2010. Pushing for playing time will also be the likes of redshirt freshman Nick Schmalhofer (6-3, 251) at left tackle, junior Will Moher (6-2, 275) at left guard, redshirt freshman Ricky Archer (6-2, 280) at center, sophomore Isaiah Martin (6-2, 300) at right guard and big sophomore right tackle Walter McCarthy (6-5, 275). TIGHT END: UNH head coach Sean McDonnell has said that he will need to replace one of the best tight ends in UNH history in Scott Sicko, who signed on as a free agent with the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys. The good news is that playing under Sicko the past few years has been another tight end gem in junior Chris Jeannot. At 6-6, 254 pounds, he has a huge wing span and is another outstanding receiver for the Wildcats. He has big shoes to fill, but when he did fill them last season he

2010 SEASON PREVIEW

was effective. In limited action Jeannot caught 11 passes for 129 yards and two touchdowns. He proved to have sure hands and also is slightly bigger than Sicko, which will help as he blocks for the ‘Cats off the line. And that’s not all. The Wildcats have another tight end that was waiting for his turn in junior Sean Cullen (6-4, 235), who is also an outstanding pass-catcher and blocker. He will be looking to make his first catch in a Wildcat uniform this season.

DEFENSIVE LINE: The defensive line is in a similar situation to the offensive line, as there are many players with starting experience and quality playing time returning from last season, making this area one of UNH’s deepest in terms of players ready to line up and get the job done successfully. Returning at defensive end for the ‘Cats is junior starter Brian McNally, who, at 6-3, 258 pounds, recovered from a shoulder injury last season and continues to get bigger and stronger. Last season, McNally recorded 29 tackles in 12 games for UNH, while also tying for the team lead with 4.0 sacks and checking in with 6.5 tackles for a loss. He also forced a fumble. In the middle, UNH features a great deal of size and run-stopping ability starting with senior Steve Young (6-4, 296). He has been extremely successful as a starter over the past two years, clogging up the middle and making UNH one of the best teams in the nation against the run. Young had 39 total tackles and 6.0 tackles for a loss. He also blocked a kick. UNH’s new addition to the starting lineup is junior John Murray (6-3, 280), but he saw plenty of playing time last season as evidenced by his 12 tackles, two tackles for a loss and two sacks. He came on strong late in the season and

Devon Jackson continued his improvement in spring ball. Junior James Jenkins (6-1, 231) has the upper hand at the other defensive end slot and he too saw action in 13 games, making 33 tackles, 2.5 tackles for a loss, one sack, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. Other players pushing for time also have had experience, such as sophomore tackle Jared Smith (6-3, 300) and senior Lance Mailloux (5-10, 249) at tackle. Two rising newcomers to keep an eye on include redshirt freshman defensive ends Cody Muller (6-2, 225) and Jay Colbert (6-1, 254). LINEBACKERS: UNH graduated a couple of good ones from this area in Sean Ware, who signed as a free agent to play with the NFL’s Carolina Panthers, and Terrence Klein, who always seemed to be in the right place to make big plays. However, several players return with plenty of action under their belts. Senior Devon Jackson (6-1, 242) was outstanding for the ‘Cats last season and led the squad in tackles with 44-54-98, while also notching 9.0 tackles for a loss, 3.0 sacks, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. A pair of seniors with plenty of experience will compete at outside linebacker as starters. Mike Perkins (5-10, 208) is a hard-hitting player who recorded (117-18) in 2009 and also had two tackles for a loss, while Ryan McGuinness (6-1, 208) is a veteran player who, in 13 games, was sixth on the squad in tackles (29-27-56) with four tackles for a loss, a sack, an interception he returned 96 yards for a TD, a forced fumble and nine pass deflections and breakups. The newcomer to the starting lineup here is sophomore Matt Evans (6-0, 219), who had a tremendous spring and is ready

2010 SEASON PREVIEW

to make an impact for the ‘Cats. Last season he recorded 13 tackles and had a fumble recovery. Other players expected to see time include senior John Greer (6-0, 213), sophomore Alan Buzbee (6-3, 238), and juniors John Duffey (6-2, 233) and Rod Walker (6-0, 207).

DEFENSIVE BACKFIELD: This area features a pair of experienced players who have been starters nearly their entire time at UNH. A true team leader and an All-CAA Second Team selection is back at corner for the ‘Cats in senior Dino Vasso, who at 5-10, 175, is not big player, but is experienced, a sure tackler and has been a steady performer for the ‘Cats. Last season he was fifth on the squad in tackles (49-27-76) and he is the top returner on the team in interceptions with five for 89 yards. He also had 17 pass deflections and breakups and two tackles for a loss. Playing at free safety is senior returning starter Hugo Souza (6-0, 213), who is one of the hardest hitting players on the squad and has the experience to direct the defensive backfield. Last year he was the team’s fourth-leading tackler (52-25-77) and he had three interceptions and 19 pass deflections and breakups, while forcing one fumble and recovering three. He also blocked a kick. Both Vasso and Souza are strong candidates for post-season honors in 2010. At the other corner will be an up-and-coming player in junior Kyle Flemings (5-10, 180), who saw a lot of action on special teams. When Flemings had an opportunity to play corner, he made the most of his opportunity, as he did at Towson with two interceptions for the ‘Cats. He also broke up and deflected four passes and blocked a kick. Others who should make an impact with playing time include sophomore

Dino Vasso

Tyler Sargent (5-10, 207) and junior Anthony Gorrell (5-10, 165). The Wildcats also have a young redshirt free safety they are excited about in Chris Beranger (5-11, 191), who has been impressive since he arrived in Durham. SPECIAL TEAMS: The Wildcats will feature a new kicker in 2010 in redshirt sophomore A.J. DeLago (5-10, 210). Last season he saw very little action, but booted three kickoffs for 174 yards and an average of 58.0 yards per kick. He earned the starting job in spring ball. UNH’s starting punter returns in senior Ryan Glasgow (6-3, 223), who averaged 34.7 yards per punt last season, punting 66 for 2,293 yards, with a long punt of 60 yards and 17 inside the 20 yard line for the ‘Cats. Junior Kevin Decker (6-2, 201) is listed as the holder in the two-deep and has good experience handling that responsibility. Junior Mark Petercuskie (5-11, 225) will take over the long snapping duties. The Wildcats return speedy senior Dino Vasso (5-9, 175) as the kick return specialist. Last season he shared the duty with Chad Kackert. In 2009, Vasso returned 10 kickoffs for 279 yards, posting an impressive average of 27.9 yards per return. His longest last season went for 38 yards. One area in special teams that will be exciting is having senior Terrance Fox (5-8, 166) back returning punts. Always a threat whenever he has the football in his hands, Fox had some return experience in 2008, taking back two for 36 yards and an average of 18.0 yards per return. His longest went for 33 yards.

MUNCIE, IND. - The No. 9-ranked UNH football team, led by the outstanding play of its defense and the fine running of junior running back Sean Jellison (Amherst, N.H.) (two TDS) helped lead the Wildcats (2-0) to an impressive 23-16 victory over FBS team Ball State, 23-16 at Scheumann Stadium on Sept. 12. The victory marks UNH’s fifth straight over an FBS opponent as the Wildcats defeated Army in 2008, Marshall in 2007, Northwestern in 2006 and Rutgers in 2004. It also marked the fourth victory over an FBS team by Colonial Athletic Association teams this season. The Cardinals, which fall to 0-2 after the upset, finished the 2008 regular season a perfect 12-0 and played in the GMAC Bowl. New Hampshire was clinging to a 23-16 lead in the final minutes as the Cardinals drove the ball down to the UNH 20 yard line. The Wildcat defense came up with two sacks and a forced fumble to end Ball State’s final drive. Junior linebacker Devon Jackson (Williamstown, N.J.), who had a team-high eight tackles, caused a Cardinal fumble and although Ball State recovered, the ball went over on downs to the Wildcats on the 35 yard line with 2:40 to play in the contest. R.J. Toman (Mission Viejo, Calif.) ran 17 yards to give UNH a first down and keep the clock running down the stretch and allowed the ‘Cats to secure victory. Freshman Ball State quarterback Kelly Page completed a 21-yard TD to wide receiver Seth White with 8:50 to go in the contest which cut the Wildcat lead to just 23-16 after the made PAT by Ian McGarvey. Junior safety Hugo Souza (Marshfield, Mass.) recoved a fumble forced by senior linebacker Sean Ware (Bristol, Conn.) on the Ball State 7 yard line after the play was reviewed. On the next play Toman pitched to Jellison late and he carried the football eight yards for the Wildcats’ third TD of the game at 3:47 of the third quarter to give UNH a 23-9 lead after the PAT by Manning. On the ensuing kick, the ball was fumbled by Eric Williams and recovered by UNH redshirt freshman Tyler Sargent (Fairview, Pa.) at the Ball State 10 yard line, but penalties and miscues pushed the UNH offense back to the 50 yard line and out of field goal range. At the end of the third quarter, the UNH defense held Ball State’s offense to just 58 yards on 40 plays. McGarvey opened the third quarter with his third field goal of the game, a 37 yarder, that cut the UNH lead to 16-9 with 11:12 left in the third quarter after 50 yard kick return gave Ball State good field position once again. Offensively, Jellison had 22 carries for 55 yards and a pair of scores, Toman completed 21-35 passes for 212 yards and a touchdown and rushed for 51 on 16 carries.

Defensively, the Wildcats allowed just 127 yards of total offense and held one of the nation’s elite running backs MiQuale Lewis to just 24 yards on 14 carries. UNH opened the game with a three-and-out on its opening possession and Ball State immediately took over on the UNH 38 yard line. After three plays by the Cardinals, that led to a 48 yard field goal by Ian McGarvey and the Cardinals quickly took a 3-0 lead with 12:42 to play in the first quarter. On the second UNH drive, the Wildcats were forced to punt again but it was blocked and Ball State started its second drive on UNH’ s 33 yard line. The UNH defense held again forcing another field goal, this time a 47 yarder by McGarvey and Ball State built up a 6-0 advantage with 9:25 to play in the first quarter. After the first half, the UNH defense’s worst enemy was Ball State’s good field position, as the D held Ball State to just 31 yards of offense, while the Wildcats compiled 101 yards on 25 plays. After a fantastic punt by Ryan Glasgow (Bedford, N.H.) that pinned Ball State on its own 1 yard line, the UNH recorded a safety and got on the scoreboard with 13:50 of the second quarter and cutting the Cardinal lead to four, 6-2. UNH took the lead on a 5-play, 52-yard drive that was capped by a nice 26 yard TD pass by Toman to Orlando and UNH was up 9-6 with 9:36 to play in the first half after the Tom Manning (Rome, N.Y.) kicked extra point. It was the first touchdown catch of Orlando’s career at UNH. The Wildcat defense was fantastic in the first half, holding Ball State to just 27 yards of offense on 24 plays and no touchdowns and held Ball State all-conference running back MiQuale Lewis to just 21 yards rushing on nine carries and the Cardinals were just 1 of 7 on third down conversions.Meanwhile the UNH offense compiled 240 yards of total offense on 46 plays and had 16 first downs to BSU’s six.

DURHAM, N.H. - The No. 6-ranked UNH football team put together a 24-0 scoring run in the second half to keep the Granite Bowl Trophy at home after posting a decisive 44-14 victory over Dartmouth in front of a home crowd of 8,271 at Cowell Stadium on Sept. 26. The Wildcats, now 3-0 overall in 2009, were led by sophomore backup quarterback Kevin Decker (Armonk, N.Y.), who threw for a touchdown and ran for another to put the game away for UNH in the second half.

He finished the day with 26 carries for 119 yards. The victory gave the Wildcats the lead in the all-time series, which now stands at 18-17-2. The game was still in question into the third quarter as the Wildcats led 20-14, but then UNH junior starting quarterback R.J. Toman (Mission Viejo, Calif.) left the game with a toe injury. The Big Green was driving quickly down field, but gave up a fumble that was recovered by senior defensive back Ryan Hinds (Toronto, Ont.), which gave UNH the ball on its own 12 yard line. UNH took advantage of the turnover with a long, sustained 13-play, 88 yard drive that was capped by a beautiful 15-yard touchdown pass by Decker to senior wide receiver J.T. Wright (Agoura Hills, Calif.). Decker completed a two-point conversion pass to junior running back Sean Jellison (Amherst, N.H.) and UNH held a 28-14 lead with 3:12 left in the third quarter. UNH took control of the game for good at 11:11 of the fourth quarter after Decker ran to the sideline, tip-toed along it, and then dove into the end zone on a 33-yard touchdown scamper to give the Wildcats a commanding 34-14 advantage. Junior defensive back Dino Vasso (Crum Lynn, Pa.) added an exclamation point to the Wildcat run with 7:36 left to play when he grabbed his second interception of the game and ran it back 34 yards for a touchdown to give the Wildcats the 41-14 lead with just 7:36 remaining in the contest. UNH senior kicker Tom Manning (Rome, N.Y.) finished the scoring with a 24 yard field goal with 1:03 to play in the game as he completed the 24-0 run by the ‘Cats.

UNH led 7-0 after the PAT. The Big Green responded quickly, however, taking advantage of a 58 yard kickoff return by Shawn Abuhoff. Quarterback Alex Jenny completed a 10 yard TD pass to wide receiver Michael Reilly and the game was tied (7-7) with 10:14 remaining in the first stanza. UNH answered. The Wildcats took a 14-7 lead at 7:16 of the first quarter following another TD run, this time for 15 yards. by Kackert, his second of the game and season as he scampered in for the score. The Wildcat defense came up with a forced fumble by sophomore safety Ryan McGuinness (Howell, N.J.), which was recovered by Hinds. The offense took over once again, and Toman completed a beautiful pass to sophomore wide receiver Mickey Mangieri (Bedford, N.Y.) for 65 yards that could have been a touchdown had it not been stopped by a Big Green touchdown saving tackle. UNH still managed to score on the drive with a 7 yard touchdown run by Toman with 2:41 remaining in the first quarter and UNH was up by a 20-7 margin after a blocked PAT. The Big Green took advantage of a key UNH penalty and made the Wildcats pay when Jenny completed a 12 yard TD pass to wide receiver Niles Murphy that made the game close again, as UNH’s lead was narrowed to 20-14. The Big Green was driving again late in the first half, but an outstanding interception by Vasso in the UNH end zone in the closing seconds allowed UNH to hold the lead heading into the lockerroom at the half. Looking at the statistics for the day, Kackert led UNH in rushing with 12 carries for 71 yards and two touchdowns. Decker completed 9 of 14 passes for 76 yards and a touchdown and Toman completed 9 of 13 passes for 154 yards. UNH had 10 different players rush the football and 11 players made catches.

DURHAM, N.H. - The undefeated and No. 5-ranked UNH football team used a pair of fourth-quarter field goals by senior kicker Tom Manning (Rome, N.Y.) and a key interception by senior defensive back Terrence Klein (Westwood, N.J) to upset No. 2-ranked Villanova on Oct. 10 in front of 14,811 fans at Cowell Stadium. Villanova, now 5-1, 2-1 CAA, held a 24-22 lead with 10:58 to go in the third quarter after a 58-yard TD run by Matt Szcur.

However, Villanova threatened to come back for the win several times and began a late drive deep in their own territory to try and steal the win, but quarterback Chris Whitney was intercepted by Klein after a tipped pass by junior safety Hugo Souza (Marshfield, Mass.) that gave UNH the football. UNH was unable to score a touchdown, but Manning struck again, this time with a 22 yard field goal that gave UNH a 28-24 lead with 4:11 to play Villanova’s final drive failed to result in a score and UNH celebrated a key CAA victory.

UNH then put together an 8 play 67 yard drive and capped it off with a 27 yard field goal Manning, his first of three on the afternoon,.giving the home team a 10-0 advantage over the other Wildcats with 5:24 to play in the first quarter. Villanova got on the scoreboard with 2:19 remaining in the first quarter following an impressive 18 yard TD run by quarterback Antwon Young. The rush capped off a seven-play 52-yard drive that cut the UNH lead to 10-7. After a long return by Kackert that put the football on the Villanova 32 yard line, Toman made a pretty pass up the middle to a reaching Sicko and UNH was back up by 10 with 2:06 left in the first quarter, 16-7, after a missed PAT by Manning. Toman engineered another drive that took the ball to the Villanova 1 yard line where he dove in for six points at 12:35 of the second quarter to give UNH a 22-7 advantage. The drive was 10 plays, 68 yards and used 2:54. UNH attempted a two-point conversion pass that went incomplete in the back of the end zone.

An interception by senior linebacker Terrance Klein (Westwood, N.J.) gave UNH (5-1, 2-1 CAA) the football on the UMass 40 yard line with 6:18 to play in the third quarter for good field position. Seven plays and 22 yards later, senior kicker Tom Manning (Rome, N.Y.) lined up for a 35 yard field goal with 4:00 left to play in the third quarter and the game was tied 10-10 after it went through the uprights. Klein made his second interception of the game and fourth of the season, giving UNH the football on the UNH 44 yard line with 1:03 left in the third quarter.

A few plays later Toman connected with senior tight end Scott Sicko (Stillwater, N.Y.) in the endzone for their second TD of the day, this time for 6 yards at 12:48 of the fourth quarter to give the Wildcats a narrow 17-10 lead. With 7:21 left in the game, UMass kicker Armando Cuko booted a 36 yard field goal, his second of the day, to cut the UNH lead to 17-13 as the UNH defense held UMass (4-2, 2-1 CAA) out of the endzone. However, that’s when UMass’s Hernandez broke a huge 42 yard touchdown run with 5:23 to play in the game and with the PAT the Minutemen grabbed the 20-17 lead it would never relinquish. With 1:31 left n the fourth quarter Cuko added his third field goal of the day from 41 yards and UMass led 23-17 with 1:26 left on the clock. UNH had one final drive but that ended with an interception in the end zone as time ran out.

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. - On a windy rain-soaked field, senior kicker Tom Manning (Rome, N.Y.) kicked a school-record 54-yard field goal with 10 minutes left to play and a 44-yarder with 5:36 to play, to lead the UNH football team to an 18-10 Colonial Athletic Association victory over Hofsra University at Shuart Stadium on Oct. 24. The Wildcats improved to 6-1 overall and 3-1 in the CAA, while Hofstra fell to 4-4 and 2-3 in the conference. Manning booted an amazing 54-yard field goal with 10:00 to play in the contest to give UNH a 13-7 advantage in the contest. The ball sailed through the uprights and broke UNH’s all-time record of 53 yards, set by Dave Taggart vs. Northeastern on Oct. 22, 1977. It also broke the Shuart Stadium record of 53 yards, set in 2008. On the next Hofstra drive, the Pride were forced to punt, but the snap was high and went into the endzone and the Wildcats picked up two points on a safety with 8:30 to play and UNH led by eight points, 15-7. Manning came back on the field again and nailed a 44-yard field goal with 5:36 to play in the contest to increase the UNH lead to 18-7 and the ‘Cats were up by 11 points. Hofstra’s Henry Greco kicked a 38 yard field goal with 2:34 to play to cut the lead to 18-10. The Pride then got the football on their own 46 yard line with 2:31 to play in the game after a successful onside kick and proceeded to move the football down the field and got down to the UNH 6 yard line with under a minute to play in the game on fourth down and 6 and a QB Cory Christopher overthrew his intended receiver Everett Benjamin in the end zone, who was covered by sophomore Ryan McGuinness (Howell, N.J.). UNH took over with the football on the 6-yard line with 38 seconds to play and ran out the clock after taking a knee. In UNH’s opening drive of the second half, junior quarterback R.J. Toman (Mission Viejo, Calif.) scrambled left and threw a pass to the endzone for 40 yards to sophomore Mickey Mangieri (Bedford, N.Y.) who bobbled the catch and kept his feet in bounds to make the circus catch and the Wildcats led the game 10-0 with 13:21 to go in the third quarter after the PAT by Manning. The drive was 5 plays and covered 81 yards. Hofstra bounced back with a long drive of their own that ended with a 3-yard TD run by Christopher at 5:56 of the third quarter and the Wildcat lead was cut to 10-7. In the first half, the only scoring came after senior defensive lineman Jordan Long (Springfield, Mass.) recovered a fumble on the 22 yard line of Hostra, but the Wildcats were unable to get into the end zone. However, Manning came in and kicked a 30 yard field goal with 11:35 to play in the first period to take an early 3-0 lead that held right into the intermission. One of the key stats of the first half was time of possession, as UNH had the ball for just 8:56 as compared to 21:04 by Hofstra. The Pride also outgained the Wildcats by a 143-72 margin. Hofsra also suffered three turnovers wth two fumbles lost and one interception, while UNH fumbled just before the half and the Pride recovered to run out the half. Toman finished the game with 14 for 21 for 148 yards and no intereceptions and had the one TD pass to Mangieiri. Leading the running game was senior Chad Kackert for 10 carries for 75 yards and no TD. Senior tight end Scott Sicko (Stillwater, N.Y.) had four catches for 28 yards. Defensively, junior linebacker Devon Jackson (Williamstown, N.J.) led UNH with 11 tackles and senior linebacker Sean Ware (Bristol, Conn.) had 10 in the contest.

However, the Tribe (9-1 overall, 6-1 CAA) answered quickly and drove into UNH territory down to the 20 yard line where Pate booted the game-winning 37 yard field goal to earn the win. William & Mary opened the scoring in the first quarter as Pate lined up for a 32 yard field goal attempt and booted it through the uprights to give The Tribe a 3-0 advantage in the contest with 7:37 to in the opening stanza. The drive covered 12 plays and 54 yards and it took 6:05 off the clock.

DURHAM, N.H. - Senior running back Chad Kackert (Simi Valley, Calif.) ran for a 5-yard touchdown with 2:26 remaining in the contest to lead the No. 9/11 UNH football team to a 27-24 victory over Maine, keeping the Brice-Cowell Musket in Durham, and winning the CAA North Division title for the second consecutive season on Nov. 21 at Cowell Stadium. The Wiildcats, at 9-2 overall and 6-2 in the CAA, are just about a lock to make the 16-team, NCAA FCS Playoff field which will be announced Nov. 13 at 3 p.m. on ESPNEWS. UNH, which was trailing 24-17 with 45 seconds to go in the third quarter, shut out Maine (5-6, 4-4 CAA) for the entire fourth stanza and outscored the visitors 10-0. The Wildcats closed the gap to 24-20 on a huge 52 yard field goal by senior kicker Tom Manning (Rome, N.Y.) with 13:46 to play in the game. The Wiildcats then took the lead for good on the run by Kackert with 2:26 to play. The Wildcats tied the game 7-7 with 4:39 to play in the first quarter when junior quarterback R.J. Toman (Mission Viejo, Calif.) kept the football and scored from 1 yard out to cap of a 14-play, 59 yard drive. UNH kept the drive alive with a key fourth down conversion. The Black Bears regained the lead (10-7) at 3:15 of the second quarter when Josh Hesseltime booted a 34 yard field goal. Maine was forced to kick the field goal after a key sack by UNH senior linebacker Sean Ware (Bristol, Conn.) that gave Maine a fourth down and 17. Maine struck again with 1:01 remaining before the half as Treister completed a 35 yard TD pass to Landis Williams as the visitors took a 17-7 lead. However, after a tremendous 35 yard kick return by Kackert, Manning cut the Maine lead to 17-10 with a 42 yard field goal through the uprights with 00:00 on the clock at halftime.

LAKE CHARLES, La. – The 10th-ranked UNH football team advanced to the NCAA Division I quarterfinals for the fifth time in the last six seasons by defeating No. 8-ranked McNeese State University, 49-13, Nov. 28 in a first-round game at Cowboy Stadium. UNH, the CAA North Division champions, scored the final 35 points of the game to improve to 10-2 overall and reach double digits in victories for the fourth time in the past six years. McNeese, which entered the postseason with a six-game winning streak, ends the year at 9-3. Junior quarterback R.J. Toman (Mission Viejo, Calif.) kept the CAA’s highest-scoring offense (32.5 points per game in the regular season) rolling by completing 17 of 25 pass attempts for 240 yards and three touchdowns. He also ran eight times for 14 yards, including a one-yard touchdown run. Senior tight end Scott Sicko (Stillwater, N.Y.) caught five passes for 51 yards and had two TD receptions – both for 9 yards. While UNH’s offense continued its prolific production, the Wildcats’ defense was stout against the Cowboys’ high-scoring attack, which featured six all-conference first team selections and averaged 37 points per game, by limiting them to 13 points – all in the first quarter. The UNH defense, which led the CAA in interceptions, recorded one interception as well as nine tackles for a loss, including three sacks. And it was New Hampshire’s defensive unit that made the game-changing play near the end of the third quarter, when a 79-yard interception return for a touchdown by Terrence Klein (Westwood, N.J.) halted MSU’s drive and extended New Hampshire’s advantage to 35-13 with three seconds remaining in the 3rd. The Wildcats put together a well-designed, well-executed drive on their first possession of the game that included three key passes to Sicko, including the 9-yard TD pass from Toman 11:23 of the first quarter to give the Wildcats the early 7-0 advantage after the PAT by Tom Manning (Rome, N.Y.). The drive included 10 plays and covered 74 yards in 3:37. McNeese State responded with a 31-yard field goal by freshman kicker Josh Lewis with 8:04 left on the clock in the first quarter to cut the UNH lead to 7-3. The drive included eight plays and covered 61 yards. UNH engineered yet another well-executed drive to take a 14-3 lead with 3:45 to play in the first quarter when Toman quickly dove into the end zone on a keeper to cap off an 11-play, 72-yard drive that took 4:21 off the clock. However, McNeese moved the ball quickly down the field, but was once again forced to kick a 40-yard field by Lewis with 1:30 remaining in the first quarter and the UNH lead was cut to 14-6. The Cowboys trimmed the UNH lead to 14-13 with 11:45 to go in the second quarter with an 11-yard TD run that capped off a 7-play, 77-yard drive that used 2:59 off the clock. The PAT by Lewis was good and the home team trailed by just one. A beautiful 62-yard pass play from Toman to junior wide receiver Kevon Mason (Quincy, Mass.) set up an 11-yard touchdown run by senior running back Chad Kackert (Simi Valley, Calif.) that gave UNH a 21-13 advantage with 4:22 to go before the half. McNeese had a chance to cut UNH’s lead with 1.2 seconds before halftime, but Lewis’ 41-yard field goal attempt missed the mark and the UNH led 21-13 at the intermission. Toman had a tremendous first half for the Wildcats, completing 15 of 23 passes for 193 yards, throwing for one touchdown and running for another. McNeese started the third quarter with the football, but the UNH defense forced a punt. A 35-yard run by Mickey Mangieri (Bedford, N.Y.) and a 24-yard run by Kackert put UNH on the 11 yard line. The quick-scoring drive was capped off with a leaping 9-yard touchdown reception in the back of the end zone by Sicko, his second of the day, to give UNH a 28-13 lead with 7:56 to play in the third quarter. The play capped an 8-play, 70-yard drive. McNeese was threatening to score when a pass by Fourroux was tipped by junior safety Hugo Souza (Marshfield, Mass.) and then grabbed by Klein for the game-changing interception that gave UNH a 22-point advantage heading into the fourth quarter. It was Klein’s sixth interception of the season and his first returned for a TD. The Wildcats iced the win with a pretty pass by Toman to senior wide receiver Travis Negron (San Diego, Calif.) for a 38-yard TD and after the PAT, UNH led by a 42-13 margin with 13:51 to play in the contest. The drive was quick, completed in three plays for 52 yards and lasting just 45 seconds. UNH closed the scoring at 7:08 on a one-yard TD run by Dontra Peters (Annapolis, Md.). That play was the last of a 12-play, 62-yard drive that consumed 4:34 off the clock. Kackert was the Wildcats’ leading ground gainer with 14 carries for 63 yards. Ryan Hinds (Toronto, Ontario) and Ryan McGuinness (Howell, N.J.) were the leading tacklers with nine and seven tackles, respectively. With his 240 passing yards, Toman climbed to No. 4 on UNH’s list of career passing yards with 5,555. Sicko now has 156 career receptions, and that total ranks eighth on the program’s all-time leaderboad.

UNH FOOTBALL - 6 STRAIGHT NCAA APPEARANCES, 26 ALL-AMERICANS

The Colonial Athletic Association

In just three seasons CAA Football has transformed itself into one of the most successful collegiate football conferences in the country. The 2009 CAA Football season saw Villanova earn its first-ever National championship, following a 2008 season that included Richmond’s first National championship. The league’s inaugural season in 2007, after adopting what was the Atlantic 10 Football Conference and one-time Yankee Conference, saw seven national Top-25 squads, multiple FBS/BCS wins and a record number of five NCAA postseason berths. The 2009 season couldn’t have started any better for CAA Football as Villanova opened its season with a win over cross-town rival and eventual bowl-participant Temple. Later that same weekend CAA Football moved to 2-1 on the season against the Atlantic Coast Conference, a BCS-level conference, as W&M won at Virginia and Richmond beat Duke. A week later UNH went on the road to Ball State and came away with CAA Football’s record fourth win over an FBS/BCS foe making it the only FCS conference in the country to earn wins over teams from the FBS/BCS level in 2009. The non-conference success against the FBS/BCS level as well as against its fellow FCS opponents (23-6, .793) was only the beginning as all four squads built impressive regular season resumes leading up to the 2009 NCAA playoff selections. Richmond and Villanova earned two of the Championships’ top-four seeds, while W&M and UNH also were selected to play in the field of 16. All four squads won first round games which marked the second straight season CAA Football teams made up four of the final eight National championship participants. Villanova moved into the quarterfinals for a rematch of a regular season game against conferencefoe UNH. In what amounted to blizzard-like conditions, Villanova prevailed and earned yet another CAA Football intra-conference matchup with W&M, which had disposed of Southern Illinois on the road. The Wildcats, playing in front of a nationally-televised audience, won the 14-13 defensive battle against the Tribe and became the fifth different CAA Football squad to compete in the National championship game in the last seven seasons. After rebuilding a once-dormant football program, head coach Andy Talley led Villanova to the National championship he set out for 25 years prior. The Wildcats outlasted Montana, 23-21, for the 2009 National championship, giving CAA Football five national championships all-time and four of the last seven. The quality and depth of CAA Football is unmatched in the FCS. The league has earned 71 total playoff berths, including 33 in the last 10 seasons. Getting into the playoffs isn’t where the success stops, as evidenced by 47 playoff wins since 2000. CAA Football has continued to make its presence felt at the national level by placing six teams in the national semifinal round over the last five seasons, while four of those teams have competed in the national title game. In 2004, JMU claimed the national championship with a 31-21 triumph over Montana, becoming the first team to reach the title game by winning three road playoff contests since the field expanded to 16 teams in 1986. Delaware rolled past Colgate 40-0 to capture the national championship in 2003, becoming the first team to ever post a shutout in the title game. No other conference has had two different teams win national titles in back-to-back years and CAA Football has done it twice (2003-04 & 2008-09). UMass earned a national championship in 1998, beating perennial power Georgia Southern, 55-43. Along with the team accomplishments, the conference has accumulated numerous individual accolades. UNH quarterback Ricky Santos (2006), W&M quarterback Lang Campbell (2004), Villanova running back Brian Westbrook (2001), Villanova wide receiver Brian Finneran (1997), UNH running back Jerry Azumah (1998) and Towson running back Dave Meggett (1988) all have won the prestigious Walter Payton Award under the league banner. JMU linebacker Derrick Lloyd (2001) and defensive lineman Arthur Moats (2009) each received the Buck Buchanan Award. UNH’s Sean McDonnell (2005), JMU’s Mickey Matthews (1999 & 2008), Villanova’s Andy Talley (1997) and Boston University’s Dan Allen (1993) have earned the Eddie Robinson National Coach of the Year Award. Richmond’s Mike London (2008), Matthews (2004), UMass’ Mark Whipple (1998) and Talley (1997 & 2009) have garnered the American Football Coaches Association National Coach of the Year honor. The CAA Football geographic footprint encompasses much of the East Coast with schools located from Maine to Virginia. Members include Delaware, JMU, Maine, UMass, UNH, URI, Richmond, Towson, Villanova and W&M. Two institutions will join the league over the next two seasons including Old Dominion in 2011 and Georgia State in 2012. While CAA Football officially began March 1, 2007, its roots date back more than 60 years. On December 3, 1946, the Code of the Yankee Conference went into effect. Established as an all-sports conference for the New England land grant colleges, the six charter members included Connecticut, Maine, UMass, UNH, URI and Vermont. Upon the formation of Division I-AA football in 1978, the league disbanded all sports except football. Delaware and Richmond were admitted to the conference in 1986, Villanova was added in 1988 and JMU, NU and W&M joined the league in 1993. The Atlantic 10 assumed operation control of the conference from 1997-2006, with Hofstra becoming part of the league in 2001 and Towson joining the group in 2004.

President

The administration

Dr. Mark Huddleston was named the 19th President of the University of New Hampshire by the USNH Board of Trustees on April 18, 2007. Huddleston was formerly at Ohio Wesleyan University and brings three decades of experience in public and private higher education as a faculty member, dean, and senior administrator. He began his academic career at the State University of New York-Buffalo in 1977 as an assistant professor of political science. He then joined the faculty of the University of Delaware in 1980, where he remained for the next 24 years. Dr. Huddleston chaired the Department of Political Science and International Relations and served as associate provost for international programs. He was named dean of the College of Arts and Sciences in 2001, where he managed 45 academic departments and centers with nearly 900 full-time faculty and staff, and served in that capacity until he was named president of Ohio Wesleyan University in 2004. Dr. Huddleston received his bachelor’s degree in political science from SUNY-Buffalo and received both a master’s degree and Ph.D. in political science from the University of Wisconsin–Madison. An author of numerous books and articles, Dr. Huddleston has been active as a consultant for both the U.S. government and international organizations. He also served as an advisor in Bosnia on rebuilding financial and administrative infrastructures after the Dayton accords. Dr. Huddleston was born and raised in Syracuse, New York. He and his wife, Emma Bricker, have three children, Andy, Kate, and Giles. “If I had wanted to be a CEO of a large company, tucked away in an office somewhere, I would have done that,” says Huddleston. “I think people here really want a president that they see and feel is a part of the fabric of UNH. That’s very appealing to me. “I like to think I’m a really accessible guy,” he adds. “I see students on a regular basis when I’m wandering around campus.”

The administration

director of athletics

Marty Scarano is in the midst of his 11th year as Director of Athletics at the University of New Hampshire. During his tenure, Scarano has heightened national exposure for UNH athletics with academics, facility renovations and programmatic advancement being top priorities. According to numbers released in 2010, UNH athletics ranks highest in the America East Conference, the Colonial Athletic Association and second nationally among all public institutions, trailing only the U.S. Naval Academy, for the Graduation Success Rate (GSR) of its student athletes with a mark of 97 percent. Of its 20 current sport teams, 14 of them submitted perfect GSRs of 100 percent. UNH finished second in the America East Academic Cup this past season, achieving a 3.16 cumulative gradepoint average, which surpassed the league record for highest GPA. There have been over $8.5 million in capitol improvements since his hiring in the summer of 2000. In the fall of 2008, the Paul Sweet Oval renovation was completed to include new surfaces, lighting, painting, infrastructure upgrades and the replacement of windows that existed in the original architecture. The total cost of the project exceeded $500,000. In the summer of 2007, the Cowell Stadium grass field was replaced with a $1 million Field Turf synthetic surface. Additionally in 2007, a complete renovation of Lundholm Gymnasium was undertaken. The $600,000 renovation included a new state-of-the-art bleacher system, new scoreboards, competition baskets and other aesthetic enhancements. Scarano brought about the completion of the $2.15 million Reggie Atkins Track and Field Facility in the summer of 2000. The addition of a center-ice scoreboard and message board at the Whittemore Center was completed in 2001. In 2002, UNH athletics renovated Memorial Field along with the Bigglestone Plaza and Bremner Field on the former Upper Field. The two fields, which feature state-of-the-art synthetic turf and lighting, were built at a cost of $1.5 million apiece. In addition, construction was completed to enlarge and improve the women’s locker rooms in the UNH Field House. Two other major improvements to benefit UNH’s student-athletes have been the renovation of the Jerry Azumah Performance Center for Strength and Conditioning, which features state-of-theart strength and conditioning equipment, new offices and design, and a complete overhaul of the Student-Athlete Academic Center. Scarano and the University are also in the midst of the planning and fundraising for a multi-purpose outdoor facility. Scarano has focused on moving UNH athletics into the collegiate national arena. To accomplish that goal, UNH has taken on the task of hosting major NCAA championships. The Wildcat athletic department was host of highly-successful NCAA Men’s Ice Hockey Northeast Regionals at the Verizon Wireless Arena (Manchester, N.H.) in 2004, 2007, 2009, and Manchester will once again be the site of the Northeast Regionals in 2011. UNH has had the opportunity to host two NCAA Women’s Ice Hockey Frozen Fours in the Whittemore Center in 2002 and 2005. In addition, UNH successfully hosted the 2007 NCAA Skiing Championships in Washington Valley, as well as the 2005 NCAA Women’s Gymnastics Northeast Regional, which took place at the Whittemore Center. This past season, men’s and women’s ice hockey, football, the men’s and women’s ski teams and gymnastics, as well as members of men’s and women’s outdoor track and field, all competed in the NCAA postseason. Because of these initiatives and accomplishments, UNH athletics has consistently been ranked in the top 90 programs among all Division I institutions in the battle for the NACDA Directors Cup, which is well ahead of nearly all of UNH’s conference opponents. This past season, the Wildcats ranked 72nd out of more than 370 Division I schools with 260.50 points, which were the most in program history, the best in America East and placed the ‘Cats in the top five among FCS teams. UNH ranked behind only Villanova, Princeton, Cornell and Harvard in the FCS subdivision. In New England, the Wildcats finished fourth behind Boston College, Connecticut and Harvard. Scarano’s many accomplishments during his tenure have played a key role in UNH being named one of the Top 20 Athletic Departments in the Country in U.S. News and World Report college athletics rankings in March 2002. UNH’s graduation rate for athletes has maintained levels at or exceeding 90 percent, which puts it among the nation’s best in Div. I. The men’s ice hockey team won the regular season Hockey East title in 2002, 2003, 2007, 2008 and 2010, and then advanced to the NCAA Frozen Four in 2002 and 2003. The Wildcat women’s hockey team won the Hockey East Tournament Championship four straight seasons from 2006-09, which also included Frozen Four appearances in 2006 and 2008. The women’s gymnastics team won its first-ever EAGL title in 2003, when the event was hosted at the Whitt. The volleyball team won an America East crown in 2002 and 2003 and went on to the NCAA tournament in those same seasons. The field hockey team made the NCAA’s in 2000, while women’s lacrosse made “The Big Dance” in 2004 and again in 2008. UNH football returned to national prominence and was ranked No. 1 in the nation for parts of three seasons from 2005-07, made it to the NCAA FCS playoffs the last six years, including the quarterfinals five times in that span, and also won its fifth consecutive game against an FBS opponent in 2009. Additionally, 21 coaches have won 58 Coach of the Year awards during Scarano’s tenure. In 2007, Scarano was named the All-American Football Foundation Athletic Director of the Year for FCS football in the Northeast region. Scarano was also awarded the National Association of College Directors of Athletics (NACDA) AD of the Year for the FCS. Scarano also been an active member in the leadership of UNH’s three major conferences and was the chair of the executive committees for Atlantic 10 football, Hockey East and America East from 2003 to 2007. He also served as chair of the NCAA Division I Men’s Ice Hockey Committee in 2005-06 and 2006-07. Scarano held the position of Athletics Director at Colorado College from July 1996 through June 2000. The college’s athletic program excelled both in and out of the classroom under his supervision and six different athletic facilities received renovations, including the Schlessman Pool, Washburn Field, the Carle Weight Room and a new press box at Stewart Field. During his tenure, Colorado College was ranked among the top 20 Division III programs in the Sears Cup national standings and produced several All-Americans, all-academic award winners and NCAA post-graduate scholarship recipients. During Scarano’s tenure at Colorado College, the men’s ice hockey team became a regular at the NCAA men’s ice hockey championships. Prior to his stay in Colorado Springs, Scarano worked for 13 years at Colgate University, where he served as assistant director of athletics, director of physical education, associate director, and senior associate director. Scarano, a native of Pittsburgh, Pa., is a 1978 graduate of Penn State University, where he started his athletic career as assistant ticket manager and the athletics events manager from 1980-83. Scarano holds a Master’s Degree in Environmental History from Colgate. He and his wife, Cydney, have two daughters, Lynden, a junior at UNH, and Corey, and a son, Kyle.

Strength & Conditioning Paul Chapman enters his ninth year as the director of strength and conditioning at the University of New Hampshire and John Ciani is entering his ninth year with the UNH athletic department. After four years as an assistant coach in the University’s strength and conditioning office, Ciani was promoted to the position of Associate Director of Strength and Conditioning in 2006. Chapman and Ciani helped coordinate the building of the state-of-the-art Jerry Azumah Performance Center and both have been key in guiding UNH student-athletes to NCAA appearances in both women’s and men’s ice hockey, football, gymnastics, Paul John women’s volleyball, women’s lacrosse, skiing and track and field. Chapman is a member of the Collegiate Strength an Conditioning Coaches Association (strength and conditioning coach Chapman Ciani certified), USA Weightlifting (certified level 1 coach), the National Strength and Conditioning Association, and he was the state director of the National Strength and Conditioning Association in North Dakota from 1991-95. He has also authored four publications related to strength and conditioning and has trained and consulted several NFL, CFL and NHL athletes, and prospective athletes preparing for all-star games, bowl games and pre-draft testing. Prior to UNH, Chapman was the director of strength and conditioning for the University of North Dakota from 1992-2001 and served there on an interim basis during the 1991-92 season. His efforts were an integral part of a winning tradition at UND, as the football team was the Division II national champions in 2001, the men’s ice hockey team won a Division I national title in 2000 and 1997 and the women’s basketball team was the Division II national champion in 1997, 1998 and 1999.

He was a two-time AllAmerica First Team selection as well as an All-America Second Team honoree in his four-year playing career. Upon graduation, he was a fourth-round draft choice of the Saskatchewan Rough Riders in the Canadian Football League. Ciani is very passionate about his commitment to strength and conditioning. He has taken his wide range of experiences to come up with a distinct sport-specific training philosophy. In conjunction with the coaching staff, Ciani develops individualized training programs depending on the athlete’s initial evaluation, experience level and current athletic ability. Under Ciani’s program, improvement is not based on the weight on the bar, but rather how injury resistant the student-athlete is and his/her athletic performance. Strength and conditioning programs designed by Ciani utilize all facets of training, from conventional strength training and Olympic Weightlifting to simple conditioning and sport-specific metabolic runs that enhance the athlete’s abilities during competition. No single training style dominates the program; Ciani uses a combination of all training techniques for the total development of the student-athlete. Ciani, a native of the San Diego, Calif. area, came to UNH after a stint as assistant strength coach at the University of North Dakota. During his tenure at UND, Ciani worked primarily with the 2001 Division II national championship football team, women’s volleyball and men’s basketball teams. In 2000, he began his career at Long Beach State as a graduate assistant working with the perennial national power women’s volleyball team, where he trained many All-American and national team level volleyball players, including Misty May. Ciani received his B.A. degree in Psychology from Long Beach State and attended graduate school at both Long Beach State and the University of North Dakota.

UNH FOOTBALL - 6 STRAIGHT NCAA APPEARANCES, 26 ALL-AMERICANS

jerry azumah performace center

As a starting tailback at the University of New Hampshire, Jerry Azumah ‘99 earned a reputation as an unstoppable record-breaker. By the time he graduated from the University and joined the Chicago Bears as a fifth-round draft pick, he had already smashed four NCAA FCS career records and been awarded the Walter Payton Award for his outstanding achievement as the nation’s top offensive player. At the age of 25, he did it again. With a gift to fund the Jerry Azumah Athletic Performance Center, he was the youngest UNH alum on record to give a gift of more than $100,000 to his alma mater. The gift provided funding for the renovation and complete overhaul, including state-of-the-art equipment of the University’s strength and conditioning facility located in the UNH Field House. “His National Football League profile will tell you that Jerry Azumah was 5- 11, weighed 195, and played defensive cornerback with the Chicago Bears,” said Marty Scarano, University of New Hampshire athletic director. “What those statistics miss is the size of Jerry Azumah’s heart. We are so proud to have Jerry’s name affiliated with the University of New Hampshire. Jerry was a leader while attending UNH and continues to set a great example as a graduate. “ Azumah is the son of Theophilius and Bertha Azumah, natives of Ghana, who now live in Worcester, Mass. He came to UNH in 1995 as a freshman, majored in sociology, and minored in justice studies. “My scholarship at UNH allowed me to pursue my interests in the classroom, build a successful college football career and changed my life on every level,” said Azumah. “I’m pleased to be able to make a major contribution to my university and to bring new opportunities to today’s student-athletes.” During his four years at UNH, Azumah was an All-American tailback and has been referred to as a player who comes along once in a coach’s lifetime by former UNH football coach Bill Bowes. He holds numerous University records, including the record for touchdowns rushing (60) and touchdowns overall (69), and FCS records for rushing yards (6,193), all-purpose yards (8,376) and points scored (424). He has had the six best — and eight of the top ten — UNH rushing games ever and holds the all-time FCS rushing record of 6,193 yards. At that time, he was the only runner in FCS history to have four 1,000yard seasons. Azumah is one of the only players in the history of the NFL to make the transition from playing an offensive position to being a starting cornerback on the defensive side of the football. In 2003 he became the only Wildcat to ever play in the Pro Bowl, where he excelled as a return specialist. He was a full-time starter at cornerback from 2001 through 2005 and made significant contributions on defense. Azumah holds the distinction of being the last Chicago Bear to score a touchdown at Soldier Field when he intercepted Donovan McNabb in a divisional playoff game versus the Philadelphia Eagles and ran 39 yards for a touchdown Jan. 19, 2002. The play gave the Bears a 14-13 lead in the third quarter. Azumah announced his retirement from NFL football in 2006 due to injuries, but he continues to keep in touch with his alma mater and is always looking for new ways he can help the University, the athletic department and the Wildcat football program.

Cowell Stadium/Mooradian Field

The home of Wildcat football for the past 69 years is historic Cowell Stadium, located at the west end of the UNH campus in Durham. Thanks to a generous donation by Ed Fish, the field has had a facelift in the form of a brand new FieldTurf surface, which was installed prior to the start of the 2007 season. Known as Alumni Field until 1952, the stadium was made possible by contributions of the UNH Alumni and was the first project of the Alumni Fund in the history of the University. Dedicated as a part of the Lewis Fields on Oct. 10, 1936, the stadium replaced what is now Memorial Field, the current home for several Wildcat athletic teams. The largest crowd for a football game in Cowell Stadium dates back to 1977, when 20,000 watched the Wildcats fall to UMass, 19-6, in a showdown for the Yankee Conference crown. The stadium is named for the former Wildcat athletics director and football coach, William H. “Butch” Cowell, who came to Durham from the Haskell Institute in 1915 and proceeded to change the face of athletics at the University. Over the first 22 years of intercollegiate football, New Hampshire managed just 23 victories. At the end of his 22-year coaching career (1915-36), Cowell had amassed an 84-67-22 mark, including stunning upsets over Army, Holy Cross and Brown. A founder of the American Football Coaches Association, Cowell served as the organization’s president in 1925 and, until his death, served as the AFCA’s permanent secretary-treasurer (1925-40). On Oct.18, 1952, at the Homecoming game versus Springfield College, the stadium was rededicated in Cowell’s honor during halftime ceremonies. UNH honored former athletics director Andy Mooradian by dedicating the playing field in his name during halftime ceremonies on Homecoming (1996). Mooradian was involved with Wildcat athletics for 45 years as a player, coach and administrator. Most recently, he served as UNH’s athletics director from 1966-86, guiding the program from the NCAA II level to Division I during his tenure. A national leader on the intercollegiate athletic scene, Mooradian was president of NACDA, the ECAC and the Yankee Conference and was a member of several prominent NCAA committees.

The James H. “Red” Hayes Locker Room

Solely for the use of the football players and staff is the James H. “Red” Hayes Football Locker Room, located on the bottom level of the Field House adjacent to Cowell Stadium. Constructed in 1988, the locker room was a gift of Red Hayes (‘32), a former Wildcat player under legendary coach William Cowell, who went on to a successful business career and gave distinguished service to the State of New Hampshire. The locker room features 110 separate lockers that accommodate each player’s equipment and uniform, as well as a players’ lounge. Adjacent to the locker room area, the lounge serves as a study and meeting area. Players can unwind in front of a large screen TV, complete with plush furnishings and a “stadium” seating area.

Bremner Field Bremner Field, located adjacent to Cowell Stadium, was transformed into an AstroPlay facility (approximately 110,000 square feet) with full lighting in the summer of 2002. It is utilized as a practice field by various teams, including football, and is also one of two home sites for the UNH men’s and women’s soccer teams.

Paul Sweet Oval The Paul Sweet Oval is the University’s indoor track, located in the Field House. Renovations in the summer/fall of 2008 included new track and infield surfaces – the track surface is the same component installed for the 2008 Olympics – as well as lighting fixtures and windows to add natural lighting.

Reggie Atkins Track & Field The Reggie F. Atkins Track & Field Facility was renovated in May 2002 and has been the site of numerous conference and New England championships. The eight-lane outdoor track encircles Mooradian Field.
