The Chargers also had 12 players earn All-Conference honors and three earn AllNew England honors. As a team, UNH led the Northeast-10 Conference in turnover margin and sacks, while also ranking seventh in Division II in turnover margin. Desmond Anderson led Division II in interceptions, while Victor Jones ranked 18th in rushing.

In 2008, Rossomando led the Chargers in a rebuilding season as the new coaching staff began the recruiting process after a five-year absence. One year later, Rossomando and his staff had developed 85 student-athletes which suited up in the Charger blue and gold for the first time against Lincoln University (Pa.) on September 5, 2009. Rossomando started right where he left off with the Chargers, defeating Lincoln 33-10.

“The team has worked hard in the offseason to prepare for another great year of Charger football,” commented head coach Peter Rossomando.

UNIVERSITY OF NEW HAVEN • 2011 CHARGER FOOTBALL

HISTORY & RECORDS

The Chargers’ tight end position also looks solid in 2011 as twoyear starter Kameel Lashley returns. The Boston, Mass. native started all 10 games in 2010 and ranked third on the team in receiving with 398 yards. He also grabbed three touchdowns and 22 catches. He led the team with 18.1 yards per catch and was third on the team with 39.8 receiving yards per game.

Those returners include quarterback Ryan Osiecki, running back Victor Jones, a trio of wide receivers and five offensive linemen that have worked together for three-straight seasons.

2010 REVIEW

The fundamental piece of any offense is the offensive line, and the Chargers have a very solid core. Starting with center John Irwin, guards David Stedman and Zach Conklin, and tackles James Malloy and Lance Chapman, New Haven has some of the most experience at these five positions. In 20 games over the last two seasons, these five have played together in each and every week. Stedman was an All-Region, All-New England and All-Northeast-10 Conference selection last season, while tackle James Malloy earned All-Northeast-10 Conference First Team honors. Conklin and Chapman were All-Northeast-10 Conference Second Team selections following the 2010 season. Adding to the depth on the offensive line will be junior Thierry Andris, sophomores Tim Moores and Joe Zimbardi, and freshmen James Pusz and Zach Guy.

2011 OUTLOOK

In the backfield, the Chargers are once again stacked with any combination of four running backs to choose from. After a phonominal season in 2010, Victor Jones is back after having offseason knee surgery to repair a tear which he suffered in week nine. The 2010 New Haven Gridiron Club Offensive Player of the Year, Jones became the third running back in UNH history to rush for 1,000 yards in a single season last year. Also an All-Region and All-New England selection, he amassed 1,021 yards in nine starts (113.44 yards per game) and ranked 18th in NCAA Division II in rushing. Averaging 5.1 yards per carry, the Paterson, N.J. native score 11 touchdowns and ranked 47th in NCAA Division II with 7.33 points per game. Depth at the running back position was created with the emergence of Weston, Fla. native Mike DeCaro last season. DeCaro saw time in six games and was the team’s second leading rusher with 436 yards and four touchdowns on 68 carries (6.4 yards per carry). In 2011, a one-two-three-four punch combination has been created as sophomores Anthony Tillman and Brian Alston have both demonstrated the ability in spring practices and fall preseason to produce out of the backfield. Tillman saw limited time as a freshman in 2010, but played in nine games. Alston suffered a season-ending injury during preseason last year and has fully recovered to get carries this fall.

2011 PLAYERS

The Schedule New Haven will feature an 11-game schedule in 2011. The schedule includes three non-conference opponents, including NCAA Football Championship Subdivision opponent, the College of William & Mary. The schedule will also include three night games and six homes games. It all begins on Saturday, September 3 when West Chester University (Pa.) comes to DellaCamera Stadium, renewing a regional rivalry from the 1990’s and early 2000’s. The second non-conference home game takes place in week two when Saint Augustine’s College travels to DellaCamera Stadium. A trip to Williamsburg, Va. is set for week three as the Chargers take on the College of William & Mary, a member of the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision, in a game which kicks off at 7 p.m. New Haven will then open its Northeast-10 Conference schedule when it travels to Assumption College on Saturday, September 24 for the second of three night games during the season. On Saturday, October 1 Stonehill College will travel to West Haven for the Chargers’ Family Day at DellaCamera Stadium. In week six, the Chargers will take on cross-town rival Southern Connecticut State University on Friday, October 7. The game will kickoff at 7 p.m. and will be homecoming for the Owls at Jess Dow Field. New Haven’s fourth home game of the season will take place on Saturday, October 15 when it hosts American International College in another critical conference match-up. The Chargers’ homecoming weekend is scheduled for Saturday, October 22 when Bentley University travels to DellaCamera Stadium for a 1 p.m. kickoff. The Chargers will round out the 2011 season at Merrimack College on Saturday, October 29, against Pace University on Saturday, November 5 and at Saint Anselm College on Saturday, November 12.

downs and only six interceptions in all 10 games. Nelson often stepped into the game as the Chargers’ option quarterback, but he also threw for 231 yards and two touchdowns. He was the teams’ third leading rusher with 20 carries for 99 yards and two touchdowns, averaging 4.9 yards per carry.

2011 COACHES

With the return of 21-of-22 starters, the University of New Haven football team looks to continue the program’s growth in 2011, one year after winning the Northeast-10 Conference Championship. In just their third season back on the gridiron, the Chargers have earned the respect of the conference after posting an 8-2 record last season and were picked as favorites in the NE-10 Preseason Coaches’ Poll. Led by four captains, Desmond Anderson, Tom Herd, Charlie Hatchett and David Stedman, New Haven is for the challenge of an 11-game schedule in 2011.

2011 SEASON PREVIEW fensively. Demetrius Washington-Ellison is the top returner as an All-Northeast-10 Conference Second Team selection in 2010. He led the team with 528 receiving yards and 41 catches. He averaged 52.8 yards per game and started all 10 contests. The Rahway, N.J. native also gabbed four touchdowns. Fellow senior Chris Ruffin and junior Josh Smart also return as key contributors from a season ago. Ruffin was a 10-game starter and totaled 17 catches for 136 yards, while Smart finished fourth on the team with 213 yards receiving and 78 yards rushing. Four more receivers will also see significant time in 2011, senior Nick Music, junior Jason Thompson and junior transfer Quivari Jackson, along with freshman Quran Kent. Music played in all 10 games in 2010, while Thompson appeared in seven. During preseason, both Jackson and Kent have shown their ability to make an impact as flankers.

breakups. Kendrick Butler as well as DJ Francis and Rodney Lanham will add depth to the cornerback positions. Butler was a solid addition to the Chargers last season and played in all 10 games, grabbing 22 total tackles. Two-year veterans Bernard Risco and J.D. Chalifoux have secured the rover and safety positions, respectively. Both were starters last season and have improved during the spring and preseason. Risco, one of coach Rossomando’s dark horse players this season, totaled 50 tackles and three pass breakups in 2010. He was third on the team with 35 solo tackles as well. Chalifoux, a two-year starter, played in nine games last season and registered 41 tackles and two interceptions. Freshman Carlos Lozada and senior Kareem Cutler will add to the secondary positions. Cutler played in six games last year and totaled eight tackles.

Defense A core of 11 returning starters will anchor the UNH defense in 2011. Leading the way will be three defensive captains, including Desmond Anderson, a preseason All-American selection in the secondary, senior linebacker Charlie Hatchett and junior defensive end Tom Herd.

Special Teams The Chargers’ specials teams were one of the best in the Northeast-10 Conference last season, in part to kicking specialist Chris Scifo. The junior from Coral Springs, Fla. was named an All-Northeast-10 Conference First Team selection in 2010 and was a twotime NE-10 Special Teams Player of the Week. Scifo took over the kicking and punting responsibilities last season and ranked 22nd in NCAA Division II with 1.10 field goals per game. He connected on 11-of-15 attempts, including 7-of-9 from inside 40-yards. He totaled 63 kickoffs for an average of 57.5 yards per kickoff, while forcing six touchdowns. Scifo also booted a pair of 45-yard field goals last year and averaged 33.0 yards per punt.

The defense for UNH starts up front with four very experienced down linemen. An All-Northeast-10 Conference selection in 2010, Rob Hill will flank co-captain Herd as the second defensive end. The two helped lead the NE-10’s top ranked pass rushing defense a year ago. Hill grabbed 10 tackles-for-loss and five sacks to lead the team in both categories. Herd added 3.5 sacks and 20 total tackles on the opposite side. In the middle of the defensive line, Scott Schultz and Ahmet Basci will start for the second-straight season at the tackle positions. Schultz was an All-Northeast-10 Conference First Team selection last year, while totaling 32 tackles and 4.5 tackle-for-loss. Basci, an All-Northeast-10 Conference Second Team honoree in 2010, grabbed 3.5 tackles-for-loss and 29 total stops. Also adding experience in the middle of the defensive line will be veterans Raheem Stanley and Sean Berglund, who both saw significant playing time a year ago.

Returning the ball will be the responsibility of veteran Josh Smart and newcomer Quran Kent. Both can make things happen during returns with their agility and speed. Smart returned three kickoffs last season for and 18.7 yard average. Freshman Quran Kent has demonstrated his excellent returning ability during preseason camp. Other returners may include Demetrius Washington-Ellison and Bernard Risco in 2011.

Hatchett, the conference’s seventh ranked tackler in 2011, earned All-Northeast-10 Conference First Team honors last year after starting all 10 games as an inside linebacker. The Bridgeport, Conn. native recorded 83 tackles, 44 solo tackles, five tackles-for-loss and three forced fumbles. Beside Hatchett will be senior Cody Wallace and Moses White who will compete for the other starting inside linebacker position. At the outside linebacker position, Mike Gomes will once again be flying around the field as one of the Chargers’ top tacklers. Last season, the Brockton, Mass. native was third on the team with 57 total tackles, three fumble recoveries and 1.5 tackles-for-loss. Senior Richard Long and sophomore Jaylen Johnson will also be competing for snaps at the linebacker positions.¬¬¬ In the secondary, Anderson will be joined by Jon Jackson as the cornerback on the opposite side of the field. Anderson grabbed seven interceptions a season ago, a number which led all of NCAA Division II, while Jackson added one interception and five pass

2011 OUTLOOK

GAME RECAP: WEST HAVEN, Conn. - Junior quarterback Ryan Osiecki completed 19-of-30 passes for 231 yards and two touchdowns, while Victor Jones led a potent ground attack with 130 yards on 28 carries as the University of New Haven football team upended Southern Connecticut State University, 2322, on Saturday afternoon at DellaCamera Stadium.

2010 REVIEW

After winning the coin toss and electing to receive, the Chargers wasted very little time opening the scoring summary in this one. From their 20 yard line, Ryan Osiecki and Victor Jones conducted an eight play, 80 yard drive for the game’s first score. Ronnie Nelson concluded the series with a two yard rushing touchdown, followed by an extra point from Chris Scifo for an early 7-0 lead.

HISTORY & RECORDS

The Chargers led 17-13 at halftime, but trailed 22-17 going into the fourth quarter. Eventually the Chargers would come back after forcing two forth quarter SCSU fumbles. The Owls had one chance at the end of the game, with just over two minutes left in the game they regained possession at their own 5-yard line. On the second play of the drive, Desmond Anderson put an end to the game with his fourth interception of the season. The Chargers’ offense guided the clock all the way down to zero, finalizing the Elm City upset at DellaCamera Stadium. The Chargers’ offense amassed 350 yards on the day, 119 on the ground and 231 through the air. Demetrius Washington-Ellison led the receiving corps with four catches for 52 yards and a touchdown on the afternoon. Defensively, the Chargers forced three turnovers on day (all in the fourth quarter) and holding a high-powered offense to just 22 points. J.D. Chalifoux and Akaki Ramishvili led the team with eight tackles apiece.

2011 OUTLOOK

In a game dominated by wind gusts in excess of 30 miles per hour, neither team could muster a score in the opening quarter. With possession at the end of the first quarter, the Chargers used the wind in the opening drive of the second quarter and pushed the ball deep into the Yellow Jackets’ territory. With 10:34 left in the first half, Chris Scifo broke a 0-0 tie with a 25-yard field goal. The kick capped a 14-play 67-yard drive which would prove to be the only score the Chargers would need to win Saturday game.

2011 OUTLOOK

GAME RECAP: WEST HAVEN, Conn. – The University of New Haven football team outlasted Merrimack College on Saturday afternoon, as the Chargers knocked off the Warriors by the final score of 27-25 on Homecoming at DellaCamera Stadium. With the win, UNH remains atop of the Northeast-10 Conference standings at 7-1 and 5-1 in the league. Merrimack falls to 4-3 overall and 3-2 in NE-10 competition with the loss. The Chargers would take a 10-0 lead after the first quarter, but the Warriors answered with six in the second quarter, cutting the lead to four at halftime. New Haven would go on to score the first 10 points of the second half off a Victor Jones 1-yard touchdown run and a Chris Scifo 42-yard field goal, both in the third quarter.

2010 REVIEW

On the first possession of the fourth quarter, Merrimack cut the Chargers’ lead to 20-13 off a 1-yard touchdown run from James Suozzo. After a 16-yard touchdown strike from Ryan Osiecki to Sharieff Hall, Merrimack put two quick scoring drives together in the final seven minutes of the fourth quarter. With 6:34 left on the clock, Merrimack punched in a three-yard run which capped a, 8-play 70-yard drive. On its ensuing possession, Merrimack went another 88-yards on 15 plays to score their final touchdown with 50-seconds left on the clock, making the score 27-25. On the Warriors two-point try, the Chargers stopped running back Anthony Smalls in the backfield, securing the win.

HISTORY & RECORDS

Just like against Southern Connecticut two weeks ago, the Chargers made the big plays when they needed to, keeping the Warriors out of the end zone. UNH collected the onsides kick attempt on the kickoff and solidified a 27-25 victory. Ryan Osiecki paced an offense that amassed 391 yards on the afternoon. He completed 12-of-25 pass attempts for 199 yards and one touchdown. Mike DeCaro and Victor Jones combined for 158 yards on the ground while Demetrius Washington-Ellison made four catches for 77 yards to lead the receiving core.

THE UNIVERSITY

Defensively, Bernard Risco recorded a team-leading 12 tackles and one for a loss of yardage. Desmond Anderson had two picks, increasing his season total to eight, as Mike Gomes chimed in with 10 tackles.

On their fifth play of the game’s opening drive, New Haven quarterback Ryan Osiecki connected with Sharieff Hall down the left side numbers for a 44-yard touchdown pass just over two minutes into the game. The Chargers would continue to score throughout the quarter. The UNH defense forced the Setters to punt after five plays on their first drive and New Haven regained possession on its own 16-yard line with 8:56 remaining in the quarter. Four plays later the Chargers took a 13-0 lead when second-string quarterback Ronnie Nelson connected on a 52-yard touchdown pass and catch to tight end Kameel Lashley. The extra point was blocked and the Chargers maintained a 13-0 lead.

2011 OUTLOOK

GAME RECAP: WEST HAVEN, Conn. – The University of New Haven football team, nationally ranked No. 23 in last week’s poll, was stunned by Saint Anselm College on Saturday afternoon at Ralph F. DellaCamera Stadium, dropping its final regular season game by the final score of 35-26. Even with the result, the Chargers still claimed the 2010 Northeast-10 Conference Title. New Haven concluded the regular season with an 8-2 mark and 6-2 in the league. The Hawks improved to 2-7 and 2-5 in NE-10 competition. With a win today, New Haven would have concluded the regular season with an overall record of 9-1 and 7-1 in NE-10 competition. The last time the Chargers finished a campaign with one loss was in 1997, a season that ended with a loss in the NCAA National Championship game.

2010 REVIEW

Osiecki finished with 252 yards passing and one touchdown for the Chargers. Washington-Ellison caught seven passes for 113 yards, while Josh Smart accumulated 45 yards on the ground and 69 in the air. Lashley had three receptions for 60 yards and Hall added three catches for 41 total yards. Defensively, Bernard Risco and Charlie Hatchett led the team in tackles with 10 apiece. The four offensive touchdowns by Saint Anselm marked only the second time a team had accomplished that feat against the Chargers defense.

2011 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.

HISTORY & RECORDS

2010 REVIEW

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

In 2007, the Connecticut Sportswriters’ Alliance presented Chin with the Gold Key Award, the state’s top sporting honor which recognizes significant contributions to athletics in the State of Connecticut.

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. • Women’s track and field has produced arguably the most successful individual student-athlete in Charger history. Shannon Gagne won five national championships during the 2010-11 academic year and helped bring the program a fourth place finish at the 2011 National Championship meet. • 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.
