A WINNING TRADITION

2010 OUTLOOK

The 2009 season marked the Charger football program's 32nd season, and was the first year since the conclusion of the 2003 campaign that UNH has fielded a team. The return of the football was of great interest and excitement to University of New Haven students, alumni, fans and friends of athletics.

2009 REVIEW

Charger football has a storied tradition of gridiron success, including four NCAA Division II playoff appearances in the 1990's. The program posts an all-time record of 176-131-5 in 32 seasons, including a 147-92-1 mark after moving to the Division II level in 1982.

HISTORY & RECORDS

UNH also advanced to the NCAA semifinals in 1992 and the quarterfinals in 1993 and 1995.

THE UNIVERSITY

In addition to team success, manyy individuals in UNH Football history have e earned national and regional accolades.. UNH had 126 All-New England award d winners in 19 seasons between 1983 and d 2001, and 63 All-ECAC picks during the e same time period. Perhaps the program'ss most famous alum is running back Rogerr Graham, who won Division II's most st prestigious award - the Harlon Hill Trophyy - after leading the NCAA in scoring and d

The conference was built from the ground up with strong cornerstones and a vision of becoming the premier Division II NCAA athletic conference in the nation.

GAME RECAP: Herb Woodard rushed for 175 yards to lead the Greyhounds and the Chargers fumbled the ball eight times at the rain filled Multi Sport Stadium on the Assumption College campus in the loss.

Assumption then went on a 14-0 run to finish the half, taking a 21-3 lead at halftime. However, the Chargers did have an opportunity to take the lead in the opening period. On their second drive of the opening quarter, the Chargers took an 11-play 57-yard drive all the way to the Assumption 4-yard line. The drive, which began at their own 31-yard line, unfortunately ended in a fumble which was recovered by the Greyhounds.

HISTORY & RECORDS

2009 REVIEW

2010 OUTLOOK

The Greyhounds scored first in Friday’s game with a 10-yard touchdown run which capped a three-play 63-yard drive in the opening 1:14. The Chargers then took the ball and put together their own scoring drive capped by a Michael Herrara 34-yard field goal. The 11-play drive took over four minutes off the clock and 45-yards.

The Chargers then turned the ball over on downs, missing a first down by just a couple yards on the Assumption 20-yard line. Each team exchanged punts midway through the fourth quarter, before the Chargers mounted a long drive into the Greyhounds red zone. The 10-play 60-yard drive took the Chargers all the way to the Greyhounds’ end zone, but unfortunately ended on a UNH fumble and Assumption recovery.

THE UNIVERSITY

The Chargers’ defense then held strong, forcing the Greyhounds to punt after three plays. The ensuing Greyhound punt reception was also fumbled by New Haven and recovered by the Greyhounds, who began to grind the ball in the final five minutes. Herb Woodard scored his fourth touchdown of the game to give the Greyhounds a 31-10 lead with 49-second left in the fourth. The Chargers tallied eight fumbles in the game, losing three to the Greyhounds. The Chargers trailed 41-202 in yards rushing, but held a 348-146 advantage in passing.

2009 REVIEW

New Haven cut into the Falcons’ lead once again on their ensuing drive when Herrara connected from 39-yards out. Now trailing 23-15, the Chargers needed to produce a defensive stand as only 2-minutes and 24-seconds remained in the fourth quarter. The Falcons ground game went to work and ran the clock out on the Chargers hopes of a home-opening victory.

2010 OUTLOOK

A 4-and-out by the Chargers, gave Bentley an opportunity to widen their lead, and they did with a 10-play 45-yard drive capped by another McNamara field goal, taking a 23-10 lead. The Chargers once again turned the ball over in the redzone on their next drive. The drive started at their own 49-yard line after Josh Smart had a 38-yard return.

2009 REVIEW

2010 OUTLOOK

With 3:18 remaining in the fourth quarter, UNH found themselves on the short end of a 16-15 score. That’s when the Chargers mounted their first game-winning drive of the season at the newly dedicated Ralph F. DellaCamera Stadium. Led by Osiecki, the Chargers’ offense took the ball 70 yards on 12 plays to score the game-winning touchdown with 21-seconds remaining. Osiecki’s TD pass to Hall was his sixth completion of a drive in which he took the team on his shoulders. The quarterback went 6-for-11 for 59 yards through the air and added the final 11 yards of the drive on the ground. On the 10th play of the drive the Chargers were faced with a 4th-and-10 from the Stonehill 37 yard line. With a 50-plus yard field goal out of the question, New Haven went for it with under one-minute remaining. Osiecki connected with Chris Ruffin on and 18-yard juggling catch to keep the drive alive. Two plays later, the Chargers capped the drive with a 19-yard touchdown pass. The Skyhawks ensuing possession with 21 second remaining could not pull off the miracle hail merry pass to force overtime.

HISTORY & RECORDS

Osiecki threw 48 times in the game and completed 30 passes for 323 yards and two touchdowns. He was sacked once and threw one interception on a two-point conversion attempt. Hall grabbed seven catches for 71 yards and one touchdown, while Ruffin made six catches for 122 yards. Thompson added six catches for 41 yards and one touchdown. The Chargers rushing attack struggled to establish itself, while eight runners tallied only 32 total yards. Bernard Risco led the group with two rushes for 14 yards. DeCaro had five carries for eight yards, while Jones carried the ball six times and added the touchdown.

THE UNIVERSITY

2010 OUTLOOK

GAME RECAP: The Yellow Jackets were the first to get on the board in just their second drive of the afternoon. AIC quarterback, Shane Muprhy, connected with Davon LeGrier in the first play of the drive for a 61 yard touchdown pass. The extra point was good to put AIC ahead 7-0. That would be only time the Yellow Jackets would have the lead the entire game. The game would head into the fourth quarter with New Haven up 21-10 and AIC in possession of the ball at UNH’s 31. The Yellow Jackets topped off a 70 yard drive with a 2-yard rush into the end zone. AIC opted for a two-point conversion – the pass attempt was good and the Yellow Jackets tightened the New Haven lead to 21-18. The Chargers quickly brought the lead back up to 10 with a 90 yard kickoff return for a touchdown from Sharieff Hall. Hall found a lane on the sideline and carried all the way through to the end zone, giving New Haven the 28-18 lead.

2009 REVIEW

Undaunted, AIC followed UNH’s touchdown with one of their own two drives later. The Yellow Jackets wasted just 56 seconds from the clock as it utilized their field position after being setup on the UNH 36 yard line following a New Haven punt.

HISTORY & RECORDS THE UNIVERSITY

Osiecki went 23-for-31 for 219 yards and two touchdowns. Washington-Ellison and Kameel Lashley brought in five passes a piece for 55 and 46 yards, respectively. While Washington-Ellison recorded two touchdowns. Victor Jones ran for 16 yards, with Josh Smart adding 15 of his own.

With the score 28-25 in favor of New Haven, American International would have its final chance of the game with 3:13 left on the clock. On the 50-yard line, the Yellow Jackets slowly and effectively worked down into Charger territory. After a passing interference call on New Haven, AIC was set up for first-and-ten on the 23rd. However, two AIC penalties kept the hungry offense away from the end zone. After being pushed back to the UNH 38 and on fourth and 25, New Haven’s Moses White and Mike Gomes ended AIC’s hope of a comeback. The duo tackled AIC’s Amadeus Guerrero-Pou on the 21 yard lineeight yards short of the first down. New Haven took its final possession on downs and let the 53 seconds left on the clock trickle down for the Chargers third win of the season. Looking back on the game, UNH held a slight 17-16 advantage on first downs, while AIC held a 347-248 advantage on total offensive yards. However, it was Hall’s 90 yard kickoff return and UNH’s two fumble recoveries that gave the Chargers the edge.

The Chargers trailed early in Saturday’s game, allowing St. Anselm to open a 14-0 lead after its first two drives. The Chargers first three drives all ended in punts, while they finally got on the scoreboard at the end of the first quarter. Freshman Josh Smart narrowly missed breaking big runs earlier in the quarter, but did miss a huge hole on the first play of New Haven’s third drive. He found a hole off the left side of the Chargers’ offensive line and scampered 80 yards for a touchdown on the first play of New Haven’s fourth drive. The one play and point after brought UNH within seven points at 14-7.

GAME RECAP: In the final game of 2009, the University of New Haven football team was unable to stop Ohio Dominican University, falling 42-13. The Chargers end the season 5-5 overall and 4-4 in the Northeast-10 Conference, while the Panthers now stand at 7-2 overall.

2010 OUTLOOK

After the Chargers opened the game with three consecutive three-and-olds, the Panthers got on the scoreboard first with an 11-play, 86-yard touchdown drive with 3:27 left in the first quarter. Those seven points would be the only points scored in the first quarter, but after another UNH three-and-out, Ohio Dominican was in the middle of a drive as the second quarter began.

2009 REVIEW

Just three plays into the second quarter, the Panthers improved their lead to 14-0 off a 1-yard touchdown run with 14:17 left in the second quarter. The Chargers next drive proved to be one of just two scoring drives for the Chargers. With 9:33 left in the half, quarterback Ryan Osiecki connected with Demetrius Washington-Ellison from 29-yards out to bring the Chargers within seven points at 14-7.

2010 OUTLOOK

November 25, 1995 - Ferris State 17, New Haven 9 The only stats that would indicate that New Haven lost this game would be the five turnovers, three fumbles and two interceptions. All the other statistics favored New Haven including time of possession (36:02), total yards (420 yards) and total plays (90). However, the most important stat favored the home team, a 17-9 final score. Ferris State opened the scoring with a 22-yard field goal by Jason Lipke. The Bulldogs boosted their lead on Chris Pulliams three-yard run, only the fourth rushing touchdown surrendered by the UNH defense in 12 games. Benny Roe’s 23-yard TD run in the third quarter gave the home team a 17-0 lead before New Haven finally lit its side of the scoreboard on Ron Jenkins fiveyard run with 9:00 remaining. Gene Adair brought the team to within one score with a 25-yard field goal, making the score 17-9. New Haven had the ball inside the Ferris 20-yard line in the final 2:00 but failed on a fourth-down attempt, securing the win for Ferris State.

His play on the offensive line helped the offense score 188 points, the highest production in school history to that point which allowed the squad to post a 5-0 start. During his career, Bowman played a major role in the Charger’s success as the team won 12 games, scored 362 points and gained over 7,800 total yards, statistics no other class could claim.

UNH became the first school from the State of Connecticut to play in a college football title game and was at that time the smallest school in terms of enrollment to play for the national title. In 1997, Kosciolek finished third in the voting for the Harlon Hill Trophy after passing for 3,232 yards and 32 touchdowns to lead the NCAA’s highest-scoring offense (43.3 points per game). Cazzie amassed 905 yards and nine touchdown passes in the playoffs, and UNH finished that season 12-2 overall as the national runners-up. Kosciolek was named to the Associated Press Small College All-America Team and was also an All-New England and All-ECAC selection. Despite playing just the one season, Cazzie’s passing numbers put him in the career top 10 at UNH in completions, yardage and touchdowns. When including playoff statistics in his totals, no one in UNH history has passed for more yards in a season than Kosciolek, who earned his undergraduate degree at Boston University before transferring to UNH to finish out his eligibility.

Deborah Chin became the school’s fourth director of athletics in 1993, and currently oversees a department which sponsors 17 NCAA Division II varsity sports. She was elected to the prestigious position of Chair for the NCAA’s Division II Management Council for 2008. UNH Athletics has enjoyed a high level of success across the board during Chin’s tenure as Director of Athletics, advancing to NCAA tournament play 50 times in 14-plus years. UNH has recently made a number of capital improvements to athletic and recreational facilities, including the construction of the multi-million dollar David A. Beckerman Student Recreation Center, a $1.3 million synthetic turf renovation of Kayo Field (soccer and lacrosse), as well as installation of state-of-the-art blue and yellow synthetic turf at the new Ralph F. DellaCamera Stadium. Chin spearheaded efforts to re-instate football as a varsity program and find UNH a new athletics conference that best fits the institution’s long-term academic and athletic aspirations. Both goals were accomplished when UNH announced on November 13, 2007 that it had been accepted as a full member of the prestigious Northeast-10 Conference, effective the 2008-09 academic year. The Charger football team will return to the gridiron for the 2009 season. A member of the University of New Haven staff since 1975, Chin began her UNH career as Coordinator of Women’s Athletics. She was responsible for starting

UNIVERSITY OF NEW HAVEN DEPARTMENT OF ATHLETICS DEPARTMENT OF ATHLETICS MISSION STATEMENT The mission of the department of intercollegiate athletics is to support the mission of the university and to integrate intercollegiate athletics into higher education so that the educational experience of the student-athlete is paramount. The department will provide growth opportunities to achieve in a nationally competitive intercollegiate program that attracts, nurtures and graduates student-athletes who under the guidance of a quality staff, represent the University of New Haven with character and integrity while achieving academic excellence, serving the community and pursuing excellence in their respective sports. DEPARTMENT OF ATHLETICS PHILOSOPHY Higher education has lasting importance on an individual’s future success. For this reason, the emphasis for the student-athlete experience at the University of New Haven is a comprehensive program of learning and development in a personal setting. As an NCAA Division II program, our approach provides growth opportunities through academic achievement, learning in high-level athletic competition and development of positive societal attitudes in service to community. The balance and integration of these different areas of learning opportunity provide our student-athletes a path to graduation while cultivating a variety of skills and knowledge for life ahead. The University of New Haven seeks to provide the world with leaders who can make a positive difference in a global society. Studentathletes are afforded unique opportunities for leadership because of the visibility provided through athletics competition. UNH’s intercollegiate program provides opportunities for its student-athletes to develop moral virtues, such as courage, self-confidence, and integrity and to learn communication and teamwork skills associated with outstanding leadership. Thus the Department of Athletics helps the University satisfy its primary aspiration, which is to prepare students to lead purposeful and fulfilling lives in a global society through experiential, collaborative, and discovery-based learning. The Department of Athletics is committed to delivering intercollegiate athletics programs that are consistent with the University’s mission and generates the trust and support of its various constituencies. The goal of the department is to field sports teams that compete successfully against other NCAA Division II teams while upholding the academic standards of the University of New Haven. The department is also committed to conducting its programs in strict adherence to the policies, rules and regulations set by the University’s administration, Board of Governors, the NCAA and the Northeast-10 Conference. Through its programs, the department gives its student-athletes of different genders, races, religions, national origins and sexual orientation opportunities to participate in intercollegiate competition. The intercollegiate program will function free of discrimination with a University commitment to the adherence to Title IX and the Office of Civil Rights guidelines. A major goal of the Department of Athletics is to help student-athletes realize the full potential of their athletic abilities while also increasing their intellectual capabilities and providing them a meaningful opportunity to earn a baccalaureate degree. The department will not compromise its commitment to educate and graduate its student-athletes. Department of Athletics personnel are expected to represent the University in a manner consistent with UNH’s principles and values. All personnel are expected to perform their responsibilities with the highest standards of integrity, ethical behavior and sportsmanship at all times. Coaches and staff are expected to treat student-athletes fairly and with respect and to facilitate leadership that helps them mature physically, intellectually, emotionally and socially. DEPARTMENT OF ATHLETICS HIGHLIGHTS • The UNH women’s volleyball team has reached the NCAA Sweet 16 seventeen times since 1983, and advanced to the NCAA Elite Eight 11 times, including an Elite Eight appearance in 2008. • Baseball has consistently been ranked as one of the winningest Division II programs in NCAA history. Baseball Coach Emeritus Frank “Porky” Vieira retired after the 2006 season as Division II’s all-time winningest coach by percentage, and logged 1,127 career victories. The team has appeared in 17 College World Series and made 32 Regional appearances. Baseball has also produced nine major league players, including former Cy Young winner Steve Bedrosian of the Philadelphia Phillies. • Women’s Basketball won the NCAA Division II National Championship in 1987. • The football program appeared in four NCAA championship playoffs, earning runner-up status in 1997. That title-game appearance made UNH the only football team in the State of Connecticut to ever compete for a national title and the smallest school (in terms of enrollment) to compete for an NCAA Championship. • Tailback Roger Graham won the 1993 Harlon Hill Trophy as the top Division II Football Player in the nation. • Men’s Soccer reached the NCAA finals in 1976 and finished third in 1977.
