The Aggies rallied from a 21-0 deficit to beat Cal Poly 22-21 in 2010 in Alex G. Spanos Stadium and also won 23-10 in 2009 at home, snapping a three-game Cal Poly win streak -- 51-28 in 2008 in Alex G. Spanos Stadium, 63-28 in 2007 in Aggie Stadium and 23-17 in 2006 in Alex G. Spanos Stadium. The Aggies won the first two games of The Horseshoe Classic -- 20-13 in 2005 and 36-33 in 2004. In 2004, the two schools’ student-run spirit clubs, Mustang Maniacs and the Aggie Pack, came together to sponsor a perpetual trophy that resides with the team that wins each year. The horseshoe-shaped trophy signifies the agricultural influence at both universities. Although the trophy was established in 2004, the two teams have met for football games 36 times. UC Davis leads the series 19-16-2. From 2001-05 and in 2007 and 2010, the visiting team won each time. The series began in 1939 with UC Davis posting a 28-0 shutout at Davis. Cal Poly returned the favor in 1940 with a 27-0 victory in San Luis Obispo. The two teams have met every year since 1978. Seventeen of the games in the series have been decided by seven points or less. 3
  • This is Cal Poly More than 19,000 students, nationally-renown courses of study and the top-ranked public master’s university in the western United States ... all 11 miles from the Pacific Ocean. Located in the central California coastal town of San Luis Obispo, Cal Poly compris-es one of 23 campuses in the California State University, the nation’s largest four-year undergraduate university system. Each CSU campus is given considerable freedom to develop its programs and each institution boasts its own qualities and strengths. Cal Poly’s Learn by Doing principle of instruction prepares undergraduates for careers in applied technical and professional fields. From computers to crops, Cal Poly holds that the best preparation for any endeavor is derived through practical application. This ideal has set Cal Poly apart from other schools and been the school’s driving philosophy since its 1901 founding. Courses at Cal Poly emphasize a high proportion of lab work, fieldwork and special assignments, culminating with a senior project. Unique on-campus opportunities – such as an organic farm and a student-run daily newspaper and majors of study ranging from aerospace engineering to wine and viticul- ture – make hands-on learning a daily reality at Cal Poly. In total, Cal Poly confers bach- elor's degrees in 64 separate areas of study. Nine of those degrees are exclusive to the San Luis Obispo campus (see next page). For 19 consecutive years, U.S. News and World Report has ranked Cal Poly as the top public master’s university in the western United States. The publication also ranked Cal Poly’s College of Engineering as the No. 2 program in the nation among public non-doctoral institutions (see below). On-campus activities are headquartered at the renown University Union and Cal Poly’s student-run activities have earned enviable reputations across the nation. Week of Welcome offers first-quarter students a successful introduction to the collegiate expe- rience through a team of trained student leaders and university officials, all of whom pro- vide academic and social resources, encourage awareness and promote relationships with the campus and central coast community. Athletically, Cal Poly boasts one of the most successful Division I programs for an institution of its size. During the 2011-12 academic year, the athletics department – which sponsors 20 varsity programs – saw the men’s cross country and men’s tennis programs advance to the NCAAChampionships. Individually, Mitch Haniger (baseball), Asa Jackson (football), Jake Romanelli (football), Boris Novachkov (wrestling) and Ryan DesRoches (wrestling) each earned All-America honors. At the NCAA Championships, Novachkov finished third at 141 pounds for his third All- American honor while DesRoches was eighth at 174 pounds. Haniger was drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers in the first round of the MLB Draft in June 2012 while Jackson was selected in the third round by the Baltimore Ravens in the NFL Draft in April 2012. The men's tennis doubles team of Andre Dome and Matt Fawcett qualified for NCAA competition as did Dome in singles while four wrestlers and two track and field athletes also advanced to the NCAA finals. Mitch Moriarty and Meghan Breadmore both earned Big West Freshman Player of the Year honors in cross country while three Mustangs -- Haniger, Kristina Santiago (women’s basketball) and Jennifer Keddy (women’s volleyball) -- were named Big West Player of the Year. As testament to Cal Poly’s athletics and academic integrity, 58 Mustangs collected conference all-academic praise during the 2011-12 school year. The Cal Poly Athletics Department also finished fifth in the Big West Commissioner’s Cup, an award present- ed to the institution with the best overall results in the conference’s 16 sponsored sports. Internationally, Cal Poly was represented at the 2008 Summer Olympics by former Mustangs Sharon Day (United States, high jump), Jimmy Van Ostrand (Canada, base- ball) and Stephanie Brown Trafton, whose gold medal for the United States in the dis- cus competition was the first such feat by a Mustang athlete. Day (heptathlon) and Brown Trafton (discus) also qualified for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. For the 19th straight year, Cal Poly was rated by U.S. News and World Report as the best public master’s uni- versity in the western United States in its 2012 America’s Best Colleges guidebook. Cal Poly placed seventh in the publication’s overall list of the west’s best universities – including both public and private institutions – that pro- vide “a full range of undergraduate and master’s-level programs but few, if any, doctoral programs.” The publi- cation ranks colleges that grant doctoral degrees, such as those in the University of California system, in a sep- arate category. “Perhaps the most important gauge of the effective- ness of Cal Poly’s educational programs is how suc- cessful our graduates are in the real world,” said former Cal Poly President Warren J. Baker, who retired in 2010 after serving for 31 years. “We hear that our graduates are doing great things and we take pride in that. Getting a ranking in U.S. News for the 19th straight year, how- ever, helps to validate the quality of our programs and the success of our gifted faculty in preparing students to meet the challenges they will face.” The College of Engineering plaza, located on the northwest corner of the Cal Poly campus.

  • In the 1890s, when a proposal for a teacher training school in San LuisObispo seemed unlikely to succeed, California State Senator SylvesterC. Smith instead suggested a polytechnic institute. Myron Angel, chron- icler of San Luis Obispo County history, became an ardent supporter of the idea and articulated a vision to establish a school that would “teach the hand as well as the head.” The plan succeeded and on March 8, 1901, legislation was signed founding the California Polytechnic School, then a vocational high school. During the ensuing three decades, Cal Poly evolved into the modern equivalent of a junior college, but its future became uncertain. In 1933, however, Julian A. McPhee, chief of the California Bureau of Agricultural Education, saved the institution from abolishment by agreeing to become school president. During the next 33 years, McPhee guided Cal Poly’s transformation into a four-year institution and set an educational standard still emulated today. Cal Poly’s first baccalaureate exercises were held in May 1942 and in 1947, the institution was officially renamed California State Polytechnic College. As programs continued to evolve, the institution became California Polytechnic State University in 1972. The Learn by Doing ethos continues to inform the paths Cal Poly’s alumni pursue, and they keep the friendships they start here. They also learn by succeeding. Median starting salary for recent graduates was $51,000 (beating all other CSU and UC campuses) and mid-career salaries for Cal Poly alumni are better than all UC and CSU campuses except Berkeley and UC San Diego - and better than many private uni- versities. More than half of Cal Poly seniors have a job offer in hand before they graduate - even in today’s difficult economy.

  • Donald J. Oberhelman was named CalPoly’s Director of Athletics on March17, 2011. Oberhelman, 41, came to Cal Poly after serving as the Chief Operating Officer and Senior Associate Athletic Director at San Diego State University. In that capacity, he was respon- sible for the daily operations of San Diego State’s intercollegiate athletics program, including budget planning, hiring and eval- uation of coaches, facilities and event man- agement. He also worked closely with San Diego State’s fundraising team. “Cal Poly has a great tradition of academ- ic excellence and we want to continue to build on that tradition in every- thing we do. For many people, athletics is the first impression they have of the university. We must make sure these impressions are great ones,” Oberhelman said at the time of his hiring. “We know our primary obliga- tion is to develop our student-athletes. I want us to be leaders in gradu- ation rates as well as in championships. But the receipt of a degree is not enough. It must be in a field of interest to the student-athlete and it must lead to a rewarding career. “We will not compromise and place student-athletes on the perceived shortest path to a degree. Here’s the bottom line for Cal Poly Athletics: We are in the business of developing citizens and leaders. Along the way, we can also win championships. Experiencing what it takes to be a champion is a great education in and of itself.” Cal Poly President Jeffrey Armstrong echoed Oberhelman’s senti- ments. “Don’s goal is for all of our student-athletes to leave Cal Poly with a diploma and a championship ring,” Armstrong said. “That’s a great goal for our student-athletes and our fans.” Prior to his tenure at San Diego State, Oberhelman served as the sen- ior associate athletic director at Southern Mississippi (2002-07), the edu- cation coordinator for athletics at Texas A&M (1998-2002) and as a com- pliance assistant at Florida State (1995-1998). He earned his bachelor’s in business administration at Kansas State and his master’s in athletic administration at Florida State. CAL POLY ADMINISTRATION Athletics and Academic Excellence • www.gopoly.com PRESIDENT JEFFREY D. ARMSTRONG Jeffrey D. Armstrong, former dean of theCollege of Agriculture and NaturalResources and professor of Animal Science at Michigan State, officially began his duties as president at Cal Poly on Feb. 1, 2011. Armstrong was head of the Department of Animal Sciences at Purdue University from 1997 to 2001. He served in various positions at North Carolina State University from 1986 through 1997. “Cal Poly has an excellent reputation for preparing the knowledge leaders that help to drive California’s economy,” Armstrong said. “I am honored to join such an outstanding univer- sity and excited about engaging students, faculty and alumni to build on its strong foundation and create opportunities for the future.” Armstrong, who was raised on beef cattle, swine and tobacco farm in west- ern Kentucky, attended Murray State where he received a bachelor’s degree in agriculture in 1981. He received both a master’s (1984) and doctorate (1986) in physiology and endocrinology from North Carolina State. The College of Agriculture and Natural Resources at Michigan State has a total budget of more than $290 million for more than 4,500 students. During Armstrong’s tenure, faculty general fund FTE increased 44 percent, overall grant activity increased 146 percent and annual development funds increased by more than 250 percent. More than $200 million (with over $60 million in endowments) was been raised during his tenure. Through the efforts of Armstrong and other members of the administrative team, CANR undergraduate student minority population increased from 8.3 to 11.8 percent and minority faculty increased from 9.9 to 19 percent. In addi- tion, annual revenue from off-campus credit instruction has increased more than 20 percent during each of the last six years. “Dr. Armstrong’s outstanding academic credentials, leadership abilities and strong grounding in agriculture and science will be tremendous assets to the university and the community as it moves forward,” California State University Trustee Roberta Achtenberg, chair of the presidential search com- mittee, said. “His reputation for teaching excellence and commitment to stu- dent-centered learning are the right complements to Cal Poly’s learn-by- doing philosophy.” As a faculty member at North Carolina State, Armstrong was engaged in the classroom, advising students, revising general university requirements and starting a Freshman College. He received numerous teaching awards at North Carolina State, including the designation as Alumni Distinguished Professor for Undergraduate Teaching. Armstrong’s laboratory-based research focused on nutrition and reproduc- tion in bovine and porcine females and more recent work has been in social responsibility in the food chain. He has been a key participant in more than $9 million in grants and cooperative agreements. He has written or contributed to more than 45 scientific journal articles. Armstrong also serves as chair of the United Egg Producers Animal Welfare Advisory Committee. He advises McDonald’s Corporation in animal welfare, as well as broader issues related to corporate social responsibility. He served as chair of the Board of Agriculture Assembly Farm Bill Committee and co-chair of CREATE-21 (Creating, Research, Extension and Teaching Excellence for the 21st century), and contributed to significant changes in the most recent Congressional Farm Bill. Armstrong also served on the USDA Agricultural Research, Extension, Education and Economics Advisory Committee and recently completed service on the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago Seventh District Advisory Council. Armstrong and his wife, Sharon, have two children. Jessica is a medical student at Michigan State and Zack is a finance major, also at Michigan State.

The track and field program hosts its annual Cal Poly Invitational each March. • Cal Poly broke ground on the Sports Complex in 1999, which, in addition to Baggett Stadium and Bob Janssen Field, features six multi-purpose fields for use by the school’s inter- collegiate and club teams, as well as intramural programs. • During the 2008-09 academic year, Cal Poly finished con- struction on the FieldTurf Upper Field, located above Ozzie Smith Plaza. The area is used by Cal Poly’s athletics pro- grams and intramural leagues. • Cal Poly opened Mustang Courts in 2001. The seven-court complex is located behind Mott Gym, features permanent chairback seating and is used by both the men’s and women’s tennis programs. • An on-campus golf practice facility, featuring bent, Bermuda and paspalum grasses, is located near the Ornamental Horticulture facility. A swing lab, located in Mott Gym, was completed in 2003 and utilizes computer equip- ment to analyze a golfer's swing. • The Mustang men’s golf program hosts the Firestone Grill Intercollegiate and the women’s team hosts the Lamkin Grip Cup Invitational at Cypress Ridge Golf Course in nearby Arroyo Grande. The course was recently rated four-and-a- half stars by Golf Digest magazine. Cal Poly, also hosted the 2009 Big West Conference championships at the exclusive San Luis Obispo Country Club. • The Fairbanks Memorial Cross Country Course in San Luis Obispo has regularly played host to the Big West Cross Country Championships. ADDITIONAL CAL POLY ATHLETICS FACILITY HIGHLIGHTS Completed in 2006, Alex G. Spanos Stadium (above) hosts Cal Poly’s foot- ball and men’s and women’s soccer programs. The Mustang football team christened the complex on Nov. 18, 2006 with a 55-0 victory versus Savannah State, while a program-record 11,075 spectators packed Spanos Stadium Sept. 15, 2007 for Cal Poly’s season home-opening win against Weber State. On Oct. 17, 2008, another sellout crowd of 11,075 supporters – then the third- largest regular season crowd figure in NCAA men’s soccer history – flooded Spanos Stadium for Cal Poly’s nationally-televised showdown against central coast rival UC Santa Barbara. During the 2009 season, the men’s soccer pro- gram ranked third among NCAA Division I programs by averaging 2,213 fans per home date. Cal Poly’s volleyball, wrestling and basketball programs call 3,032-seat Mott Gym (right) home. The athletics department ensured its commitment to Cal Poly’s pro- grams by installing a new $700,000 floor during the summer of 2007. During recent years, Mott Gym has hosted the Pac-12 Conference Wrestling Championships and, in front of a sold-out audience, the first and seconds rounds of the 2006 NCAA Volleyball Tournament (also right). The men’s basketball program produced its most recent sellout during a 60-57 defeat of eventual Big West champion UC Santa Barbara on Feb. 27, 2010. Additionally, the Mustang women’s basketball program drew a program-record 1,737 fans for a Feb. 14, 2009 game against UC Santa Barbara. Remodeled at a cost of more than $3 million, the Olympic-sized Anderson Aquatic Center (left) was completed in August 2009 and plays host to both Cal Poly’s men’s and women’s swim- ming and diving programs. Situated adjacent to Mott Gym, the pool meas- ures 12,348 square feet. Eight 50- yard lanes highlight the complex, which also provides for a total of eighteen 25-yard cross course lanes. The complex also features a 15-by- 30-foot all-shallow therapy pool. Anderson Aquatic Center held its first official event on Oct. 3, 2009, when the Mustang women’s swimming pro- gram welcomed then-defending national champion California to San Luis Obispo. 8

  • CAL POLY ATHLETICS DEPARTMENT PERSONNEL Athletics and Academic Excellence • www.gopoly.com ATHLETIC EXCELLENCE Featuring 20 varsity programs, the Cal Poly Athletics Department is in its 19th year of NCAA Division I com- petition since completing reclassification in 1994. With the exception of football (Big Sky Conference), wrestling and men’s swimming (Pac-12 Conference) and the women’s swimming and indoor track and field pro- grams (Mountain Pacific Sports Federation), Cal Poly is also in its 17th year as a member of the Big West Conference. Among Big West institutions, only UC Davis (22 programs) boasts more athletic disciplines than Cal Poly. Prior to transitioning to the Division I level, Cal Poly ranked as the most successful institution in the history of NCAA Division II athletics with 35 national team titles. Cal Poly has continued its winning tradition at the top flight with teams and individuals routinely earning con- ference championships and NCAA Tournament berths. During the 2011-12 academic year, the athletics department – which sponsors 20 varsity programs – saw the men’s cross country and men’s tennis pro- grams advance to the NCAA Championships. Individually, Mitch Haniger (baseball), Asa Jackson (football), Jake Romanelli (football), Boris Novachkov (wrestling) and Ryan DesRoches (wrestling) each earned All-America honors. At the NCAA Champion- ships, Novachkov finished third at 141 pounds for his third All-American honor while DesRoches was eighth at 174 pounds. Haniger was drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers in the first round of the MLB Draft in June 2012 while Jackson was selected in the third round by the Baltimore Ravens in the NFL Draft in April 2012. The men's tennis doubles team of Andre Dome and Matt Fawcett qualified for NCAA competition as did Dome in singles while four wrestlers and two track and field ath- letes also advanced to the NCAA finals. Mitch Moriarty and Meghan Breadmore both earned Big West Freshman Player of the Year honors in cross country while three Mustangs -- Haniger, Kristina Santiago (women’s basketball) and Jennifer Keddy (women’s vol- leyball) -- were named Big West Player of the Year. As testament to Cal Poly’s athletics and academic integrity, 58 Mustangs collected conference all-academ- ic praise during the 2011-12 school year. The Cal Poly Athletics Department also finished fifth in the Big West Commissioner’s Cup, an award presented to the institu- tion with the best overall results in the conference’s 16 sponsored sports. Cal Poly athletes have consistently excelled outside the bounds of the collegiate arena. Cal Poly was repre- sented at the 2008 Summer Olympics by former Mustangs Sharon Day (United States, high jump), Jimmy Van Ostrand (Canada, baseball) and Stephanie Brown Trafton, whose gold medal for the United States in the discus competition was the first such feat by a Mustang athlete. Day (heptathlon) and Brown Trafton (discus) also qualified for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. Other prominent post-Cal Poly examples include All-American wide receiver Ramses Barden (2005-08), who was a third-round selection by the New York Giants in 2009. Former linebacker Chris Gocong (2002-05) – one of Cal Poly’s three Buck Buchanan Award winners as the Football Championship Subdivision’s top defensive player – made 35 starts in three active seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles before signing with the Cleveland Browns in 2010. Former men’s soccer midfielder Anton Peterlin is the only Big West player to have appeared in an English Football League match. Two former Mustangs -- Junior Burgos (Toronto FC) and Patrick McLain (Chivas USA) are with Major League Soccer clubs. As of August 2012, the Cal Poly baseball program had produced five cur- rent Major League players in the last three years while 22 other Mustangs were active professionally. MUSTANG HEAD COACHES For more than 100 years, Cal Poly’sstudent-athletes have been dedicatedto excellence in both the athletic and academic arenas. During the 2011-12 scholastic year alone, 58 Mustangs were named to all-conference academic teams. Since Cal Poly transitioned to the Division I level in 1994, the school has enjoyed 634 total all-conference academic selections – an average of more than 35 per year. Taking pride in each student’s ability to excel both athletically and intellectually, Cal Poly and the athletics department offer guidance and support to each student-ath- lete during his or her tenure. To support these motives, the athletics department ini- tiated the Academic Resource Center. Opened in 2001, the center provides year- round academic support, tutoring, work- shops and academic advising. The center has also developed study hall programs with bi-quarterly progress checks, weekly academic appointments and a first-year seminar class for incoming student-ath- letes. In deference to the student-athlete’s need for class schedule flexibility, Cal Poly also offers in-season priority registration for two of the three quarters during which com- petition occurs. Of the 64 major courses offered at Cal Poly, Mustang student-athletes were enrolled in 54 separate areas, as of the Fall 2009 term.

  • 12 Cal Poly, along with UC Davis, North Dakota and Southern Utah, will start competition in the expanded Big Sky Conference, beginning with the 2012 season. Cal Poly and the Aggies accepted invitations from the Big Sky Conference in September 2010 to become affiliate members in the sport of football only. North Dakota and Southern Utah joined the Big Sky as full-fledged members in December 2010. Cal Poly and UC Davis will maintain membership in the Big West Conference for the majority of their other sports. “The geography of the Big Sky Conference makes perfect sense for Cal Poly,” said then-Cal Poly interim president Dr. Robert Glidden during a 2010 press conference. “It gives us a consis- tently competitive schedule and a great opportunity to grow long-term, stable rivalries with well- respected teams.” Added then-Mustang director of athletics Alison Cone, “We’re very excited anout joining the Big Sky Conference. Our goal all along has been to find stability for our football program, and the Big Sky Conference gives us exactly what we need to enhance our program. The Big Sky Conference is one of the best FCS conferences in the country and offers great competition with teams that are natural rivals in our region. “We’re able to continue our great rivalry with UC Davis and renew rivalries with other West region schools,” Cone added. “The scheduling improvements will give our student-athletes an opportunity to vie for a conference championship which pro- vides an automatic berth into the NCAA playoffs. It’s also a victory for our fans, who will get a chance to watch some of the best FCS schools in the country year in and year out.” Doug Fullerton, commissioner of the Big Sky Conference, said, “The Big Sky is already recognized as one of the top Football Championship Subdivision conferences in the nation. The addition of Cal Poly and UC Davis to our lineup will strengthen us even more. “This is a great fit for both institutions and the Big Sky Conference,” Fullerton added. “We are bringing in two strong western FCS programs. They will benefit from us in having access to an automatic playoff bid and a full slate of conference games.” Cal Poly head football coach Tim Walsh was head coach at Big Sky Conference member Portland State for 14 seasons (1993-2006), the final 11 years in the Big Sky Conference after the Vikings elevated their athletics program from Division II to Division I in 1996, before moving on to the U.S. Military Academy (Army) as offensive coordinator for the 2007 and 2008 campaigns. Walsh was named head coach at Cal Poly on Jan. 9, 2009. “This is great news for our athdent-athletes,” Walsh said. “We are extremely excited to be a part of arguably the best NCAA FCS conference in the country. It is a conference that we are familiar with, the competition is top-flight and that will only make us better. “The Big Sky is regionalized in the western part of the country,” Walsh added. “All of that leads to stability for our football program.” The nine members of the Big Sky Conference for the 2011 football season were Montana, Montana State, Idaho State, Eastern Washington, Northern Arizona, Sacramento State, Northern Colorado, Weber State and Portland State. In their first two FCS seasons, the Mustangs were members of the American West Conference (1994 and 1995) before becoming an independent for eight years. Cal Poly and five other schools, including UC Davis, formed the Great West Conference in 2004. The Mustangs won Great West titles in 2004, 2005, 2008 and 2011. The Big Sky Conference is entering its 50th year of athletic competition this fall and, prior to the recent addition of four teams, was a nine-team league for football since 2006 when Northern Colorado joined the conference. Eastern Washington captured the 2010 FCS championship while Montana played for the national championship in football each of the two previous years. Big Sky teams have won the Division I national title six times -- Boise State (1980), Idaho State (1981), Montana State (1984), Montana (1995 and 2001) and Eastern Washington (2010). Big Sky teams have made 13 total appearances in the Football Championship Subdivision national title game. The Big Sky has been represented in the playoffs by at least two teams in 26 of the past 28 years, including three teams on five occasions -- 1988, 1990, 1994, 2003 and 2009. Since 1993, a total of 13 Big Sky teams have made it to at least the semifinals of the playoffs. The Big Sky has advanced two teams to the quarterfinals three of the last seven seasons. Montana has appeared in seven national championship games since 1995. Since 2000, six of the nine Big Sky teams have made at least one playoff appearance. The Big Sky Conference has produced seven winners of the Walter Payton Award, which goes to the most outstanding football player at the FCS level, along with four Buck Buchanan Award winners (top defensive player in the FCS) and a pair of Eddie Robinson Award winners (FCS coach of the year). QB Bo Levi Mitchell of Eastern Washington was the 2011 Payton winner. Since moving to the Football Championship Subdivision (formerly Division I-AA) in 1994, Cal Poly is 27-36 against teams from the Big Sky Conference, including a 16-9 mark in the last 25 games from 2004-11. Cal Poly was 5-1 against Big Sky members in 2005, best in school histo- ry, en route to its first NCAA FCS playoff berth. The Mustangs also qualified for the NCAA FCS playoffs in 2008.

  • 2012 Season Preview: Preparing for the Big Sky Conference al Poly enters its first season in the Big Sky Conference this fall with just seven returning starters. However, the centerpiece of the offense -- quarterback Andre Broadous -- and the middle of the defense -- linebackers Johnny Millard, Kennith Jackson and Nick Dzubnar -- are back, hoping to produce the Mustangs' ninth winning campaign in the last 10 years. And with the addition of as many as eight transfers, including a pair from the University of Wisconsin and four community college prospects to the roster, Mustang fans will need a game program to keep track of all the new per- sonnel who will take the field in 2012. Replacements are needed for fullback Jake Romanelli (who rushed for 1,015 yards), slot- back Mark Rodgers (who gained over 1,400 yards on the ground in two seasons at Cal Poly), three starters on the offensive line and all four starters in the defensive secondary. In addition, nine of the 13 defensive linemen who played last fall are gone. With 25 players on the 2011 roster exhausting their eligibility and only seven returning starters, the focus of Spring Camp was on fun- damentals "We needed to work on fundamentals, partic- ularly on the defensive side," said Tim Walsh as he enters his fourth season at the helm of the Mustang football program. "This fall, we need to tackle better, we need to create more turnovers and we need to stop third downs." The Mustangs also made one major coaching change. After three seasons at Cal Poly, defen- sive coordinator Greg Lupfer resigned in March in order to accept an assistant coaching position at Colorado State. Randy Hanson was hired to coach the secondary while Josh Brown was ele- vated to the position of defensive coordinator. A year ago, the Mustang defense intercepted 12 passes but forced only eight fumbles, recov- ering four of them. The 16 turnovers were the lowest total in the Great West Conference last fall. And Cal Poly's foes converted 46 percent of their third-down plays (77 of 166), also the worst in the Great West. Being more dynamic and explosive was the focus on offense dur- ing Spring Camp. "We needed to work more extensively on the shotgun," said Walsh. "We didn't want to lose sight of what we were good at a year ago, but at the same time we need to be more explosive. "I feel very good with what we have coming back," Walsh added. "The development of the offensive line was another area of focus. We lost four, but we have four coming back with extensive playing time. "We have some good experi- ence coming back, but we also have a lot of young guys and, in Spring Camp, we needed to find out what they can do for us," Walsh said. When Fall Camp opens August 6, Cal Poly’s roster will include 53 returning lettermen -- 27 on offense, 25 on defense and punter Paul Hundley -- along with 20 players who redshirted the 2011 season, 13 walk-ons and eight transfers, including defensive linemen Jake Irwin from Wisconsin, Barrett Wangara of College of San Mateo and Omar Omilabu from Laney College, linebacker Cameron Ontko, also from Wisconsin, and defensive back Alex Hubbard of College of San Mateo. A look at each position heading into Fall Camp: Quarterback Broadous has thrown just one interception in two full seasons at the helm of the Mustang offense. As a junior last fall, he completed almost 60 percent of his passes -- 101 of 170 -- for 1,235 yards and nine touchdowns while rushing for 646 yards and a school-record 18 touchdowns. Broadous finished fourth in the nation in scoring (9.82 points per game)and 35th in passing efficiency (136.73). Senior Doug Shumway will back up Broadous. Shumway has com- pleted 16 of 32 passes for 212 yards and two scores as Broadous' backup the last two years. Redshirt freshman Chris Brown and junior Vince Moraga are vying for the third spot on the depth chart at quarterback while Kenny Johnston is back for a fourth season with the program.

  • Tanner Trosin brings his senior-year 5,185 passing yards and 49 touchdowns to Fall Camp as well. Slot Back Mark Rodgers and David Mahr have departed, but Deonte Williams returns for his senior season after rushing for 385 yards and five touchdowns in his first season with the Mustangs a year ago. Junior Cole Stanford is the leading candi- date at the other slot back position. He netted 20 yards on two carries in 2011 after switch- ing from the linebacking corps. Other slot back candidates include sopho- more Chris Nicholls and Kenny Mitchell along with redshirt freshman Kristaan Ivory. And Walsh hinted that Broadous or Shumway also could play some slot when not calling the signals. Freshmen Kevin Porche, Norman Sadler and Kori Garcia will get numerous snaps in Fall Camp as well. Fullback Jake Romanelli, Cal Poly’s first 1,000-yard rusher in five years and the 14th in Mustang football history, was on the list of Cal Poly graduates this spring, leaving a big hole at fullback. Topping the depth chart at fullback enter- ing Fall Camp is junior Akaninyene Umoh, who had 21 carries for 74 yards as Romanelli's backup last fall. Umoh's chal- lengers are redshirt freshmen Brent Michaels and Garrett Steele along with sophomore Brandon Howe and junior Matthew Rulon. Michaels transferred to Cal Poly from Air Force a year ago and accumulated 4,181 yards and 55 touchdowns in three varsity seasons at Lake Havasu High School. Steele rushed for 2,008 yards and passed for 2,177 yards in his senior season at Kingsburg High School. Senior Quentin Greenlaw, who played four games as a backup fullback a year ago, is injured and did not participate in Spring Camp. Wide Receiver Cal Poly has some depth at wide receiver this year. Lance Castaneda was the Mustangs' top receiver last fall as a redshirt freshman, catching 26 passes for 283 yards and one touchdown en route to All-Great West honor- able mention praise. Willie Tucker was third on the list with 14 receptions for 265 yards and a pair of scores as a true freshman. Brandon Michalkiewicz, a transfer from Sierra College a year ago, caught 10 passes for 161 yards in his first season with the Mustangs. Challenging the trio of veterans are seniors Ryan Taylor and Josh Swaney, junior Nathanael Petrey and redshirt freshmen Roland Jackson Jr and Jordan Hines. True freshmen Keishawn Rowe and Carson McMurtrey will be catching balls in Fall Camp as well. Offensive Line Stalwarts Scott Winnewisser, Maurice McClure, Art Munoz and Matt Duffy are gone, but the offensive line is still looking solid for 2012 with seniors Geoff Hyde and Karl Winkelman along with juniors Giovanni Sani and Lefi Letuligasenoa all returning for another season. Sani returns at left tackle, Hyde at center, Letuligasenoa at right guard and Winkelman at right tackle. The quartet started or played in at least 10 games last fall. Among the candidates at left guard are red- shirt freshman Kyle Zottneck and Tom Hickel along with sophomore Connor Odisio and true freshman Derek Sabo. Challenging for the other positions on the offensive front are redshirt freshmen Weston Walker and sophomore Sam Kenney at left Geoff Hyde, Senior (6-2, 255) 11 Starts in 2011 All-Great West Second Team (Media) in 2011 10 Starts in 2010 Giovanni Sani, Junior (6-5, 275) 4 Starts, 10 Games Played in 2011 9 Starts, 11 Games Played in 2009 Lefi Letuligasenoa, Junior (6-1, 300) 9 Starts, 11 Games Played in 2011 Karl Winkelman, Senior (6-3, 280) 0 Starts, 11 Games Played in 2011 3 Starts, 8 Games Played in 2009 Offensive Line Akaninyene Umoh, Junior (6-2, 215) 21 Carries, 74 Yards, 0 TDs in 2011 6 Catches, 129 Yards, 1 TD in 2011 6 Carries, 20 Yards, 0 TDs in 2010 7 Catches, 92 Yards, 0 TDs in 2010 Fullback Lance Castaneda, Sophomore (6-3, 215) 26 catches, 283 yards, 1 TD in 2011 All-Great West Honorable Mention 2011 Willie Tucker, Sophomore (6-2, 205) 14 Catches, 265 Yards, 2 TDs in 2011 Brandon Michalkiewicz, Senior (5-10, 171) 10 Catches, 161 Yards, 0 TDs in 2011 Wide Receivers Kennith Jackson was Cal Poly’s No. 2 tackler last fall with 80 stops.

  • tackle, redshirt freshman Stephen Sippel and EJ Galvez at center, redshirt freshmen Brett Darragh and sophomores Shawn Swanson and Joe Coleman at right guard and junior Mike Freeman and redshirt freshman Dylan Gutierrez at right tackle. True freshmen Marvin Abou and Matthew Fisher also will get a chance to display their wares. Defensive Line The defensive front was hit hard by gradu- ation, claiming nine of the 13 players at the four positions. Hence, one of the areas of focus during the recruiting period was the defensive line and, as a result, three transfers challenged for spots on the defensive front this spring. Jake Irwin is a transfer from Wisconsin and will battle junior Andrew Alcaraz at right end. Omar Omilabu played last fall at Laney College and is battling junior Nick Leyden for the starting nod at left end. Wesley Flow- ers from UCLA joined the mix in the sum- mer. Barrett Wangara, a transfer from College of San Mateo, will challenge sophomore Chris Lawrence at nose tackle. Lawrence started the final game of the 2011 season at South Alabama. The other defensive tackle posi- tion is headed by junior Sullivan Grosz, who notched 45 tackles including 11.0 tackles for lost yardage and 5.5 sacks, along with seven quarterback hurries a year ago. Grosz will be backed up by jun- ior Amir Tadros and Alcaraz along with true freshmen Billy Shipman and Jason Patterson. Junior Chris Judge, who played 10 games and earned seven tackles in 2011, is moving from line- backer to one of the end spots. Other players to watch out for on the defensive front are juniors Kyle Maddux and Grant Goebel, redshirt freshmen Tyler Perkins, Kelly Shepard and Marcus Paige- Allen and true freshman Colin Dzubnar. Linebacker Johnny Millard with his team-leading 82 tackles returns at the Will linebacker position while Kennith Jackson, second on the team with 80 tackles in 2011, mans the Mike line- backer spot. Max Schulz, the starter at Sam linebacker last fall, is gone, but sophomore Nick Dzubnar played all 11 games a year ago and recorded 28 tackles. He will be challenged by sophomore Cameron Ontko, another transfer from Wisconsin who also could play at the Will spot. Others expected to challenge for starting nods at linebacker include redshirt freshman Tu’uta Inoke and Andrew Hunter, junior Xavier Ramos, sophomores Nick Moyer John Andrus (a transfer from Hartnell College) and true freshmen Joseph Gigantino and Joe Locher. Ramos had five tackles in seven games a year ago. Secondary Like the defensive front, the defensive backfield also was hit hard by graduation, taking All-American and four-time All-Great West cornerback Asa Jackson, now with the Baltimore Ravens, along with safeties Greg Francis and Angel Morales. The trio com- bined for six interceptions a year ago. The lone returning starter was to be senior field cornerback Bijon Samoodi, who returned an interception 46 yards for a touch- down against South Dakota State a year ago and also recorded 62 tackles and five pass breakups. Samoodi, however, will sit out the 2012 season with a hip injury. Junior Vante Smith-Johnson (30 tackles, five pass breakups) is the top candidate at boundary cornerback, backed up by sopho- more Kevin Britt and redshirt freshman Karlton Dennis. Kennith Jackson, Senior (6-0, 232) 80 Tackles, 6.0 TFLs, 2 Int., 8 Breakups in 2011 All-Great West First Team in 2011 67 Tackles, 10.0 TFLs, 4 Hurries in 2010 Second-Team All-Great West in 2010 35 Tackles, 4.5 TFLs, 2 Hurries in 2009 Honorable Mention All-Great West in 2009 Johnny Millard, Junior (6-3, 231) 82 Tackles, 9.0 TFLs, 2 Breakups in 2011 All-Great West Second Team in 2011 (Media) 38 Tackles, 2.5 TFLs, 3 Hurries in 2010 Nick Dzubnar, Sophomore (6-2, 240) 28 Tackles, 1 Interception, 1 Breakup in 2011 Cameron Ontko, Sophomore (5-11, 220) 1 Tackle at Wisconsin in 2011 Linebackers Sullivan Grosz, Junior (6-4, 280) 45 Tackles, 6.5 Sacks, 11 Hurries in 2011 All-Great West Honorable Mention 2011 14 Tackles, 2 Hurries in 2010 Chris Lawrence, Sophomore (6-2, 265) 11 Games Played, 4 Tackles in 2011 Jake Irwin, Sophomore (6-4, 240) Transfer from Wisconsin Barrett Wangara, Junior (6-3, 285) 35 Tackles, 3.0 Sacks, 3 Pass Breakups at College of San Mateo in 2011 Defensive Line Linebacker Johnny Millard led the Mustangs with 82 tackles as a sophomore last fall. Tackle Sullivan Grosz earned honorable mention All-Great West honors in 2011. 19
  • 20 Senior Nico Molino (15 tackles, three pass breakups) moved up to No. 1 on the depth chart at field cornerback with Samoodi side- lined, challenged by redshirt freshman Chris Fletcher and sophomore Jordan Williams. With Francis and Morales gone, the battles at left and right safety are wide open. The depth chart at left safety finds transfer Alex Hubbard on top, followed by Jordan Williams and freshman B.J. Nard. Sophomore Dave Douglas heads the depth chart at right safety. He redshirted last year after recording four tackles in six games as a true freshman in 2010. Junior Matt Reza and sophomore Trevor Weis, who had eight tack- les in nine games last fall, will back up Douglas. Others in the mix include redshirt fresh- man Andrew Walsh and senior Logan Budd. Kicking Game Sophomore Paul Hundley returns to handle punting chores in his sec- ond season with the Mustangs. Hundley was 41st in the nation a year ago as a true freshman with a 39.8 average, land- ing 10 punts inside the 20 with 13 fair catches and seven touchbacks. With James Langford transferring to Cal, walk- on Stephen Pyle from Lake Travis High School in Austin, Texas and trans- fer Bobby Zalud from Arkansas State will battle for kickoff and placekick- ing duties. Pyle was a member of Cal Poly's men's soccer team last fall. Other kickers on the roster are walk-on redshirt freshman Marco Tavecchio and true freshman Shawn Kuehter. Doug Shumway returns as the holder on special teams while walk-on redshirt fresh- man Zac Powell from Lompoc High School or freshman Sodie Orr will replace Troy Shotwell as the long snapper. Stanford, Fletcher and Hubbard are the leading candidates as punt retur- ners while Deonte Williams, Stanford and Hubbard top the list of kickoff returners. Schedule Cal Poly enters its first season as a member of the 13-school Big Sky Con- ference with a completely revamped schedule. No more trips to the South or the East Coast. No more four-game con- ference slates. No more Division II opponents. Instead, the Mustangs will play eight Big Sky games -- four at home and four on the road. Cal Poly also will play one game against a Football Bowl Subdivision team, visiting Wyoming on Sept. 15, and its other two non- conference opponents are the University of San Diego in the home opener Sept. 1 at 4:05 p.m. and at Eastern Washing- ton, a future Big Sky opponent, in a non-confer- ence game Nov. 3 in Cheney, Wash. Cal Poly’s four Big Sky home dates are Sept. 22 against UC Davis, Oct. 13 against Northern Colorado (Parents Weekend), Oct. 20 against Portland State (Homecoming) and Nov. 10 against Idaho State, all at 6:05 p.m. "We’re obviously very excited about the 2012 schedule because it will be our first season in the Big Sky Conference and we have an opportunity to have our first Big Sky game at home against UC Davis,” said Walsh. “In addition, Wyoming is one of the top teams in the Mountain West, we will play the University of San Diego for the first time in quite a while and we play Eastern Washing- ton in their place. All are great opportunities and a huge challenge for us.” Cal Poly, which plays just three of last year’s 11 opponents, will have just two non- conference games prior to the start of Big Sky Conference action against in-state rival UC Davis. “Our schedule, the way it is set up, com- bined with the loss of several valuable sen- iors means our early season will have to quickly provide the necessary experience for our younger players to compete for the Big Sky championship,” said Walsh. “We do have more game experience that people might think,” Walsh added. “We have a lot of guys competing in position battles. Therefore, because I know the Big Sky well, our depth will be extremely important. “The reality is that No. 13 can beat No. 1 in this conference. Look at what Sacramento State did last year (beating Oregon State and Montana). You have to be mentally ready to play for nine straight weeks.” Cal Poly will not play any of the top three teams in the Big Sky preseason coaches and media polls -- Montana State, Eastern Washington and Montana -- in conference games this season. The Mustangs’ inaugural Big Sky game will be against UC Davis in the renewal of The Horseshoe Classic on Sept. 22 at 6:05 p.m. in Alex G. Spanos Stadium. “I am extremely excited that our first game will be against UC Davis in our home stadi- um,” said Walsh. “It will be a tremendous college football environment and a great way to start our first year in the Big Sky Conference.” Cal Poly’s quartet of Big Sky games on the road this fall are Sept. 29 at North Dakota, Oct. 5 at Weber State, Oct. 27 at Sacramento State -- only the second meeting in the last six years -- and Nov. 17 at Northern Arizona. Geoff Hyde started all 11 games at center last fall. Bijon Samoodi, who returned an interception 46 yards for a score, will miss 2012 sea- son due to a hip injury.

  • Cal Poly Head Football Coach Tim Walsh im Walsh, offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at the United States Military Academy for two seasons, was named Cal Poly’s 16th head football coach on Jan. 9, 2009, and, after guiding the Mustangs to a 4-7 mark in his first campaign, turned it around for 7-4 and 6- 5 records in his second and third seasons at Cal Poly. “Tim Walsh brings all of the qualities we were looking for in a head coach for our foot- ball team,” then-Cal Poly director of athletics Alison Cone said of his hiring. “He is a qual- ity leader who understands the unique culture at Cal Poly. He knows how to help young men reach their potential in the classroom, as citizens, and on the football field. We had several outstanding applicants from which to choose, but I am thrilled we were able to hire a person with such outstanding credentials to direct our program. “He has the ability to continue the success the Cal Poly football program has enjoyed ... and that the community and the university will be proud of and excited to support,” Cone added. Walsh replaced Rich Ellerson, the Mustangs’ head football coach for eight sea- sons. Ellerson was named head coach at Army on Dec. 26, 2008. “I am thrilled we were able to hire a person with such outstanding credentials to direct this program,” Cone said of Walsh. “He is a high-charac- ter, high-quality individual who brings great passion and enthusiasm to our campus.” Walsh has compiled a 134- 98 record in 21 seasons as a college head coach, including four years at Sonoma State (27-14 from 1989-92), 14 more seasons at Portland State (90-68 from 1993-2006) and three at Cal Poly (17-16 from 2009-11). He guided Sonoma State to the Northern California Athletic Conference title in 1991 (ending UC Davis’ streak of 20 consecutive conference titles), a pair of NCAA Division II playoff berths while at Sonoma State and four more postsea- son berths while at Portland State. “I have a tremendous working knowledge of Cal Poly, its history and current status,” said Walsh. “The combination of a tremen- dous academic university, a tremendous area to recruit and live, and a football program that’s winning all added up to a great oppor- tunity for me. “My goals are to continue to recruit stu- dent-athletes whose goals are to be the best they can be, both in the class and on the field, and become quality young men,” Walsh added. “If we do that, winning won’t be a problem. This is an opportunity to build a great program and develop a great relation- ship between the campus and the community at large.” Ted Tollner, former Mustang quarterback who has held numerous coaching positions at the college and professional levels, praised the hiring of Walsh. “He did an excellent job at Portland State and is extremely well respected in the profes- sion,” said Tollner. “He will keep the program moving forward and continue the success it has had in recent years. “People who have worked for him have great respect for his total abilities from a recruiting standpoint, his communication with players, his sound philosophy and his winning record,” Tollner added. “His track record speaks for itself.” Added Bobby Beathard, also a former Mustang who has held numerous positions in the NFL, including scout, personnel director and general manager, "Tim Walsh is a ter- rific choice. He will be a tireless recruiter, he knows what athletes are and what kind of ath- letes will fit into the program." A charismatic speaker and motivator, Walsh guided Sonoma State to three winning seasons in four years at the helm of the Seawolves and 10 more above-.500 cam- paigns in his 14-year term at Portland State. With the Vikings, Walsh coached 14 All- Americans and 11 Academic All-Americans. Teri Mariani, who was director of athletics at Portland State when Walsh accepted the duties of offensive coordinator at Army, said at the time of his departure that “Tim showed great loyalty to our program and led us through a transition to Division I that a lot of coaches wouldn’t have wanted to do. He has had proven success both on the football field and off, and he’s always been such a team player within our department. “Two words that describe him in my eyes • 134-98 Record (21 Years) • Six Postseason Playoff Berths • 15 Winning Seasons in 21 Years • 17 All-Americans • Five Walter Payton Award Finalists • Two Buck Buchanan Award Finalists • Eddie Robinson Award Finalist (1999) T The Walsh File Birthdate: December 17, 1954 Birthplace: San Francisco, CA College: B.A. UC Riverside (1977); Family: Jody Walsh (wife) and children Luke (32), Casey (27), Sean (25), and Megan (18) Hometown: San Mateo, CA Coaching Experience Cal Poly, 2009-Present Head Coach (17-16 in Three Seasons) No. 4/6 in FCS Rushing Offense, 2010/2011 U.S. Military Academy, 2007-08 Offensive Coordinator (QBs) No. 9 in Rushing Offense, 2008 Recruited in nine Western states Portland State University, 1993-2006 Head Coach (90-68 in 14 Seasons) Winningest Coach in School History Three Division II Playoff Appearances One FCS Playoff Appearance (2000) 1999 Eddie Robinson Award Finalist Three Walter Payton Award Finalists Sonoma State University, 1989-92 Head Coach (27-14 in Four Seasons) Winningest Coach in School History One NCAC Championship (1991) Two-Time NCAC Coach of the Year Sonoma State University, 1987-88 Offensive Coordinator (QBs) 23 School Records Broken on Offense Santa Clara University, 1986 Defensive Coordinator (LBs) Moreau Catholic High School, 1981-85 Head Coach Serra (San Mateo) High School, 1977-80 Assistant Coach 23
  • Cal Poly Head Football Coach Tim Walsh are loyalty and class,” Mariani added. “In his 14 years (at Portland State), he has never done one thing that could change that opinion of him” Portland State joined the Big Sky Conference in 1996. During Walsh’s 11 seasons when the Vikings were in the Big Sky, he coached players who earned 39 first-team All-Big Sky honors, 51 on the second team, 80 honorable mentions, 58 Academic All-Big Sky honorees, 59 Big Sky Players of the Week, 20 national play- er of the week honorees, five Walter Payton Award finalists and one Buck Buchanan Award finalist. Cal Poly’s 2009 squad posted a 4-1 mark at home, finished No. 6 in the nation in punt returns (15.60), No. 11 in turnover margin (+1.00), 19th in rushing offense (178.45 yards per game) and 23rd in time of possession (31:22) and was ranked as high as No. 12 in the national polls. A total of 10 Mustangs earned All-Great West Conference first- or second-team honors, including first-teamers Jake Romanelli (Fullback), Ryan Shotwell (defensive end) and James Chen (defen- sive tackle). The 2010 Mustang squad also finished 4-1 at home en route to a 7-4 mark. The Mustangs earned six come-from-behind victories, split six games on a very diffi- cult road schedule one year after going winless (0-6) and winning three straight games late in the year to put Cal Poly in a position to compete for a playoff berth. Cal Poly’s triple-option offense finished fourth in the nation in rushing offense, averaging 252.91 yards a game, and 14th in rushing defense, allowing only 106.82 yards a contest. The Mustangs also were No. 3 in punt returns and No. 16 in both time of possession and sacks allowed. Cal Poly finished the 2010 season with national rankings of No. 24 in The Sports Network/Fathead.com media poll and No. 23 in the Football Championship Subdivision Coaches Poll. The Mustangs were ranked in the top 25 of both polls for the final 11 weeks of the regular season. Senior linebacker Marty Mohamed was named Great West Conference Defensive Player of the Year and five other Mustangs earned first-team all-conference honors. In addition, Mohamed and Chen were named to the FCS Athletics Directors Association Academic All-Star Team. Chen also was named to the Great West All-Academic Team for the third straight year and earned a $7,500 NCAA Postgraduate Scholar- ship. Five other Mustangs landed on the Great West All-Academic Team. Cornerback Asa Jackson earned a spot on The Sports Network/Fathead.com FCS All-American third team while slotback Mark Rodgers landed on the Associated Press FCS All-American third team as an all-purpose player. Offensive guard Will Mitchell was selected to Phil Steele’s FCS Postseason All-American Fourth Team. In 2011 Jackson landed on the All-Great West first team for the fourth time as Cal Poly finished 4-1 at home once again en route to a 6-5 campaign. Jackson also earned numerous All-American honors, played in the Senior Bowl and participated in the NFL Scouting Combine. In posting a winning record for the eighth time in the last nine years, Cal Poly captured its fourth Great West title, put together a midseason four-game winning streak and won three straight home games after trailing at halftime. The Mustangs finished sixth in the nation in rushing offense, No. 16 in punt returns and No. 27 in scoring offense. Cal Poly was No. 1 in the nation in intercep- tions thrown with one and No. 28 in rush- ing defense. Fullback Jake Romanelli became the first Mustang in five years and the 14th overall to surpass the 1,000-yard mark in rushing yards, finishing with 1,015 yards. James Langford broke a school record with 15 field goals and 86 points while Andre Broadous rushed for 18 touch- downs, another school mark.

We are The Home Team! Our Mission: To build an army of Cal Poly Mustang Football alumni, parents, fans, businesses and all who desire to show their appreciation for what they received; a football scholarship, college admission and a Cal Poly degree. This army of donors will dedicate themselves to foster a “give back” philosophy that will ensure future Mustangs the same opportunity and experi- ence year after year. Collectively, the HomeTeam will effectively raise and gift funds exclusively for the benefit of the Cal Poly Football Program while keeping annual donations at affordable levels ($150 per season) so all can participate. Our Steering Committee: By working hand in hand with the athletic department to accomplish this incredible dream of becoming a Division I football program, a small body of local alumni is contacting and appointing one or more captains from each team over the last 50 years of football to serve on the steering committee. The steering committee is a collective group of alumni who will be directly responsible for contacting all sen- iors from their respective teams to report back to the administra- tion with updated contacted information and annual membership commitments. Over 300 football alumni joined in the very first year and our goal is to reach 1,500 members by Fall 2012. Annual Membership: Cal Poly Athletic Advancement will sponsor two alumni functions (Fall/Spring) during each academ- ic year. If you are not currently receiving Home Team informa- tion, Cal Poly Football or Alumni events, please call 805-756- 7188.

  • Kyle Zottneck OL • 6-1 • 270 • Freshman (RS) Long Beach, CA / Los Alamitos High School 76 2011 -- Redshirt ... a potential starter at left guard in his first playing season at Cal Poly, backed up by Connor Odisio. High School -- A tackle on both the offensive and defensive Kyle Zottneck Offensive Line 2012 Cal Poly Mustangs Mel Kaufman, a linebacker on the Mustangs’ NCAA Division II national championship team in 1980 and an eight-year veteran of the Washington Redskins of the National Football League, passed away Feb. 7, 2009, in his Santa Margarita home. He died of hemorrhagic pancreatitis about three weeks shy of his 51st birthday. Kaufman, inducted into the Cal Poly Athletics Hall of Fame in 1993, played in three Super Bowls with the Redskins. Washington won Super Bowl XVII following the 1982 season and Super Bowl XXII after the 1987 campaign while losing Super Bowl XVIII following the 1983 season. Kaufman also was a scout for the Redskins in Super Bowl XXVI after the 1991 season. He was hired as linebackers coach at Cal Poly in the spring of 2008 and helped guide the Mustangs to an 8-3 record, a Great West Conference title and their second NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision playoff berth. “It’s a tragedy. He was a good man and a compas- sionate man,” said former Cal Poly head coach Rich Ellerson, now head coach at Army. “He was just a good guy, a passionate guy, a Mustang.” Kaufman had been out of football at the college and professional levels for about 10 years before he was hired to coach the Mustang linebackers. “I hired him because of his past, the number of guys he played with over the years who were passionate about him and the kind of person he was,” said Ellerson. “We took a bit of a chance with him because he hadn’t coached before at this level, but there were a lot of compelling things in his background as a player and scout as well as who he was as a person. “We still needed to teach him how to coach, get a foothold, work up the ranks,” Ellerson added. “It was really hard on him. It was learn by doing for him.” Defensive back LeCharls McDaniel was a teammate of Kaufman on the Mustangs’ 1980 national championship team under head coach Joe Harper. “Mel was a great human being on top of being a great football player,” said McDaniel. He was a great person, always got along with all people, very likeable. People don't know how good a man he really was, but the people who really knew him know. He affected people in a way he didn't even realize. “Mel and I came to Cal Poly together,” McDaniel added. “Both of us were skinny kids and we both knew we had to work to achieve anything. I tried to pro- tect him and we grew up together. We went into pro football doing the same thing. There were tough times, but it’s a little easier when doing it with friends. He was a true friend, a great football play- er. He came into Cal Poly at 170 pounds and played with leverage, played with speed and played with confidence that you can only try to teach kids today.” Born Feb. 24, 1958, in Los Angeles, Kaufman earned two varsity letters in football at Santa Monica High School, graduating in 1976. He played four seasons with the Mustangs after a redshirt year in 1976. A defensive team leader and team captain with the Redskins from 1981-88, Kaufman was a starting linebacker on three National Football Conference championship teams (1982, 1983 and 1987). Following his playing career, he was a scouting supervisor for the Redskins through 1998, giving him 16 years of NFL experience. Kaufman obtained his bachelor’s degree in social science and industrial relations at Cal Poly in 1984. The Mel Kaufman Award, established by current head coach Tim Walsh, is presented annually to the Cal Poly player who most exemplifies the vir- tues Kaufman became known for off the field. Linebacker Carlton Gillespie earned the award in 2008 and 2009 while safety Scottie Cordier was the recipient in 2010 and linebacker Kennith Jackson was honored in 2011.

  • 2011 Season in Review: Mustangs Complete Difficult Schedule With Another Winning Record In 2011, Cal Poly played a pair of FBS teams, five FCS squads that were in the national polls at one time or another during the season and another team that won its first 19 games and is on the fast track to the FBS. Both San Diego State and Northern Illinois won bowl games in 2010, Montana has a pair of FCS national titles to its credit and Eastern Washington claimed the FCS crown last fall. South Alabama did not lose a football game in the program’s first two seasons of existence and was 19-0 at home. Cal Poly’s 11 foes in 2011 posted a combined 76-53 win-loss record in 2010 and those same schools fin- ished the year a combined 68-45. Nevertheless, head coach Tim Walsh and his Mustangs somehow managed to overcome the difficult schedule as well as numerous injuries, putting together Cal Poly’s eighth winning season in the last nine years by finishing with a 6-5 mark and capturing the school’s fourth Great West Conference title in the eight-year history of the league, more than any other school in the league. “To be Great West champions in 2011 was a great accomplishment for our football team when you consider the degree of difficulty, especially after our first four games, and the injuries that the team endured as the season progressed,” said Walsh. “Our team truly played like champions in championship form.” After a 1-3 start, Cal Poly found itself needing seven consecutive victories to be given serious consideration for an NCAA FCS playoff berth. The Mustangs won four in a row before falling against UC Davis and Eastern Washington by a total of nine points. “We ran into some emotional gaps and, also because of health issues, suffered back to back close losses,” said Walsh, “but we still ended the season with a dominant win over a good South Alabama, which exemplifies who this team is.” Cal Poly clinched a share of the Great West title Oct. 29 with a 27- 24 win over South Dakota. North Dakota beat South Dakota 38-37 last Saturday to climb into a tie for first place with the Mustangs. Cal Poly beat the Fighting Sioux 23-19 on Oct. 22 in Grand Forks, N.D. The Mustangs won three home games in a row despite trailing at intermission but couldn’t perform that magic again the next two weeks, falling 24-17 at UC Davis after trailing 21-3 at halftime and rallying from a 28-14 halftime deficit in a 53-51 triple-overtime loss to Eastern Washington in the home finale. “First and foremost, we won the Great West championship,” said Walsh. “Second, we wanted to go to the FCS playoffs and we missed that. But when you achieve your ultimate goal, which was a Great West championship, and put together a winning season, you have to be somewhat satisfied and we are.” Cal Poly football, presented by French Hospital Medical Center, scored first only three times in 11 games in 2011. The Mustangs trailed at halftime eight times in 11 games and rallied to win three of those games, all at home. Cal Poly won all three games in which it led at halftime (South Dakota State, North Dakota and South Alabama). Quarterback Andre Broadous and slotback Deonte Williams, among others, will return for Cal Poly’s first season in the Big Sky Conference next fall, but the Mustangs lose 25 seniors, including 1,000-yard rusher Jake Romanelli, slotback Mark Rodgers, Buck Buchanan Award candidate Asa Jackson, three starting offensive line- men (Art Munoz, Scott Winnewisser and Maurice McClure) and numerous defensive linemen (Brandon Roberts, Erich Klemme, Kyle Murphy, Gavin Cooper, Kevin Hess, Matt Singletary and Troy Shotwell) and defensive backs (Greg Francis and Angel Morales). That will make for a busy off- season, not only for the coaches on the recruiting trail but for the players who have injuries to heal. “First, our bodies have to get healthy and some will have sur- gery as soon as this week,” said Walsh. “Secondly, we have to replace some outstanding players. We’re going to need some junior college players or some transfers, especially on the defensive line. Thirdly, we have to focus on our returners improving their bodies in the weight room, which will help our ability to remain healthy.” In addition to help on the defen- sive front, Walsh said his team “needs more speed at some of the skill positions on offense and we need to make sure we replace our three senior offensive linemen.” Among the returning players, Broadous completed 59 percent of his 170 pass attempts for 1,235 yards and nine touchdowns. He has thrown just one interception in two full seasons and he was Cal Poly’s No. 2 rusher out of the Triple Option with 646 yards.

  • one TD), Willie Tucker (14-265-2) and Brandon Michalkiewicz (10- 161-0). Williams netted 385 yards on 82 carries and scored five touch- downs in his first season with the Mustangs, including a 100-yard game against UC Davis. Tackle Sullivan Grosz (5.5 sacks, seven quarterback hurries, 45 tackles) is the lone returning starter on the defensive front. The line- backing corps will be led by Johnny Millard and Kennith Jackson, who finished one-two in tackles with 82 and 80, respectively. Nick Dzubnar (28 tackles), Kyle Mohamed and Chris Judge also return at linebacker. Cornerbacks Bijon Samoodi (62 tackles) and Nico Molino (15 tackles) along with safety Jordan Williams (14 tackles) will anchor the secondary. “I wish we could have stayed healthy enough throughout the year, especially in certain games,” said Walsh. “Asa and Rodgers would have been a huge factor in the UC Davis game with their speed and we had other guys who also played several games at 75, 85 percent because of their injuries. “The fact they played in spite of that speaks well to the character of the players in our program,” Walsh added. “At one time or anoth- er, of the four guys who were on our poster (Romanelli, Rodgers, Asa Jackson, Cooper), the only guy who played through it all was Jake and he played in pain the last two to three weeks.” Cal Poly captured four Great West Conference titles in the eight- year history of the league (2004, 2005, 2008, 2011) and earned NCAA Division I FCS playoff berths in both 2005 and 2008, reach- ing the quarterfinals in 2005. The Mustangs have won 65 of their last 102 games dating back to the 2002 season finale and have won 23 of their last 48 games on the road and 42 of their last 51 home contests. MUSTANG NOTES SEVEN ALL-GREAT WEST HONOREES RETURN: Cal Poly placed 10 players on the 2011 All-Great West Football Conference first and second teams and just two of the honorees return this fall. They are linebacker Kennith Jackson, a first-team selection, and quarterback Andre Broadous, a second- team honoree. Honorable mention wide receiver Lance Castaneda, defensive lineman Sullivan Grosz and defensive back Bijon Samoodi also return. MUSTANGS 8-1- IN SEASON OPENERS: Since beginning play in Division I FCS in 1994, Cal Poly has won eight of 18 season openers, including six of the last nine. A losing streak of five was snapped seven years ago at Texas-El Paso, 34-13. The Mustangs beat Humboldt State 42-7 in the 2004 opener and 23-17 in 2010, Fort Lewis 44-0 in the 2006 opener, San Diego State 29-27 in the 2008 opener and Sacramento State 38-19 in the 2009 lidlifter. Cal Poly is 13-5 in regular-season finales over the last 18 years -- Rich Ellerson was 7-1 -- snapping a three-year losing streak with a 41-10 victory at South Alabama in 2011. Ellerson won five straight home openers prior to a 30-28 loss to Montana in 2008 and was 5-3 in eight seasons. HOME ATTENDANCE: Cal Poly averaged 8,760 fans for five home games in 2010. For the second straight year, the Mustangs placed 37th among all Football Championship Subdivision schools in home attendance when they averaged 9,588 fans for five home games in 2009, just above the average of 9,574 fans for seven home games in 2008. Montana led in 2009 with an average of 24,417 while Appalachian State was the leader in 2008 with a average of 25,161 for eight home contests. Cal Poly, which drew 11,075, its fifth sellout since the expansion of Alex G. Spanos Stadium in 2007, for its 2011 home opener against South Dakota State, averaged 8,770 in five home games in the 2011 season. CAL POLY AGAINST THE BIG SKY: Since moving to the Football Championship Subdivision (formerly Division I-AA) in 1994, Cal Poly is 27-36 against teams from the Big Sky Conference, including a 16-9 mark in the last 25 games. Cal Poly has defeated Sacramento State (1995, 1997, 2001, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2009) eight times, Montana State (1997, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2003, 2004, 2005) seven times, Idaho State (2004, 2005, 2007, 2008) four times, Weber State (2002, 2006, 2007) three times, Eastern Washington (1995, 2005) and Montana (2005, 2010) twice and Northern Colorado (2007) once. The Mustangs played five Big Sky opponents in 2003 and finished 2-3.

ON STAGE: Stan Sheriff played in the 1954 East- West Shrine Classic and 51 years passed before a second Mustang was cho- sen to play in the contest. Linebacker Jordan Beck played in the 2005 game at AT&T Park in San Francisco. Just one year later, defensive end Chris Gocong became the third Mustang to play in the prestigious game, moved to the AlamoDome in San Antonio, Texas. And linebacker Kyle Shotwell made it three in a row, playing in the East-West Shrine Game in 2007 at Reliant Stadium in Houston. Shotwell was the leading tackler in the game with seven and earned the Pat Tillman Award. Wide receiver Ramses Barden played in the 2009 Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama, while cornerback Asa Jackson played in the 2012 event in Ladd-Peebles Stadium, 10 weeks after concluding his Mustang career in the same facility against South Alabama. Cal Poly offensive lineman Ben Cobian played in the 2005 Las Vegas All-American Classic in Sam Boyd Stadium.

EIGHTEENTH YEAR OF FCS: Last fall Cal Poly finished its 93rd season of football since 1915 and the 18th season of playing at the Football Championship Subdivi- sion (formerly Division I-AA) level. The Mustangs played their 100th game as an FCS member at UTEP on Sept. 6, 2003, earned their 100th win Oct. 9, 2010, at Old Dominion and played their 200th FCS game Nov. 19 at South Alabama. The Mustangs, 109-91 as an FCS school, moved to Division I-AA from Division II in 1994 and were members of the now-defunct American West Con- ference (Southern Utah, Sacra- mento State, Cal State Northridge), before becoming an independent in 1996. After eight years as an FCS Independent, the Mustangs became a charter member of the Great West Football Conference in 2004. After eight seasons in the Great West, Cal Poly moves to the Big Sky Conference in 2012. PLAYERS OF THE WEEK: Senior cornerback Asa Jackson, who returned an interception 100 yards for a touchdown against South Dakota State on Sept. 17, was named Great West defensive player of the week. Jackson also had eight tackles and four pass breakups. Sophomore placekicker James Langford, who was perfect on three field goal attempts and two PAT tries at Montana on Sept. 10, was named College Football Performance Awards national placekicker player of the week in the FCS. Langford kicked field goals spanning 38, 36 and 50 yards. Defensive tackle Kyle Murphy was named defensive player of the week for his three sacks, two forced fumbles, one hurry and four tackles against Southern Utah on Oct. 15. Langford was honored again for his game-winning 39-yard field goal against South Dakota on Oct. 29. Jake Romanelli rushed 36 times for 179 yards, both career highs, against Eastern Washington on Nov. 12 and was honored by the conference.

Current mem- bers of the Big Sky Conference are Montana, Montana State, Idaho State, Eastern Washington, Northern Arizona, Sacramento State, Northern Colorado, Weber State and Portland State. The Big Sky Conference is in its 49th year of athletic competition and has been a nine-team league for football since 2006 when Northern Colorado joined the conference.

Frisco emerged from a pool of several cities that submitted bids to serve as the host site for the championship game for three years, beginning with the 2010 sea- son. Hosted by the Southland Conference, the 2010 championship game was played at Pizza Hut Park on Jan. 7, 2011, the culmination of a newly expand- ed 20-team championship bracket. As a result of this expansion, the game was played a few weeks later than in years past. Eastern Washington rallied for a 20-19 victory over Delaware. North Dakota State defeated Sam Houston State 17-6 for the 2011 title. Brandon Roberts notched 16 tackles in senior season, four for lost yardage, and earned numerous academic honors as well. KSBY-TV to Televise Four Cal Poly Home Football Games in 2012 As part of a continuing three-year spon- sorship agreement between Cal Poly Athletics and KSBY Television, announced last August, KSBY has agreed to televise all four Cal Poly home Big Sky Conference football games this fall. The agreement was announced in June by Cal Poly Director of Athletics Don Oberhelman and KSBY-TV President and General Manager Kathleen Choal. The Mustangs will play their first-ever Big Sky game Sept. 22 in Alex G. Spanos Stadium against rival UC Davis in The Battle for the Golden Horseshoe. The remaining three games to be televised by KSBY include an Oct. 13 contest against Northern Colorado, an Oct. 20 date with Portland State and a Nov. 10 affair with Idaho State. All four games kick off at 6:05 p.m. KSBY-TV coverage will begin at 5:30 p.m. with a live Cal Poly Pre-Game show. "This partnership with KSBY will permit unprecedented access to Mustang Athletics," said Oberhelman. "The fact that we will have several football games televised locally is great for our fans." "KSBY is committed to live, local cover- age of sports on the Central Coast," added Choal. "We received amazing feedback on our live sports coverage last year and we are thrilled to be able to offer televised games to our viewers again this year." KSBY broadcast three Cal Poly home football games a year ago, the first year of the three-year agreement, in addition to car- rying the feed from the Mustangs' game at Montana. Last year, KSBY also broadcast two Cal Poly men’s basketball games from Mott Gym -- UC Santa Barbara on Jan. 2 and Pacific on March. Dates for this season’s men’s basketball broadcasts have yet to be announced. The three-year agreement, in effect through June 30, 2014, made KSBY-TV the official home of Cal Poly Athletics and also included signage at Alex G. Spanos Stadium, Mott Gym, Baggett Stadium and Bob Janssen Field.

Mustang junior quarterback Andre Broadous threw his first collegiate interception on his 208th career attempt. Jonathan Calhoun intercepted the pass with 9:15 to play in the game and returned the theft for a touchdown. The score was erased due to offsetting penalties, but the interception stood. After James Langford kicked a 26-yard field goal less than five minutes into the game, UC Davis answered with three touchdowns for a 21-3 halftime lead. Sean Kelley's 36-yard field goal with 4:24 to go in the third quarter gave UC Davis a 24-3 cushion. Cal Poly answered with a one-yard run by Broadous with 1:50 left in the period. Midway through the fourth quarter, the Mustangs converted three fourth- down plays en route to another touchdown. The 91- yard, 17-play drive was capped by a one-yard run by Deonte Williams, who netted 100 yards for the game, and the PAT kick by Langford pulled Cal Poly to within one score at 24-17 with 2:08 to play. The ensuing onside kick by Cal Poly was covered by the Aggies.

  • E. Washington 53, Cal Poly 51 Game 10 November 12, 2011 Alex G. Spanos Stadium, San Luis Obispo, CA Attn: 6,562 SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. – Bo Levi Mitchell's run for two points in the third overtime proved to be the difference as Eastern Washington defeated Cal Poly in a non-conference game. Mitchell's 22-yard touchdown pass to Cory Mitchell tied the game at 35-35 with 1:51 to play in regulation and sent the game into overtime. Each team exchanged field goals in the first extra session and touchdowns in the second overtime. Then Greg Herd caught a 25-yard touchdown pass from Mitchell to start the third overtime period and Mitchell ran for the two-point PAT and a 53-45 lead. Andre Broadous scored from a yard out on fourth down to close the gap to two points, but his two-point conversion pass was batted away in the end zone by Eastern Washington defensive back Alden Gibbs, ending the game. The decision spoiled a brilliant performance by Cal Poly senior fullback Jake Romanelli, who estab- lished career highs with 36 rushes for 179 yards and a touchdown on a one-yard run early in the second quarter. For Romanelli, it was his fifth 100-yard game this season and the sixth of his Mustang career. Both teams surpassed the 500-yard mark in total offense. Cal Poly amassed 501 yards, including 405 on the ground, while Eastern Washington accumulat- ed 546 yards, 461 through the air.

Cal Poly, making its second-ever trip to Alabama – the Mustangs played at Troy in 2005 – recorded four sacks, forced four turnovers, including three interceptions, and held South Alabama under 300 yards in total offense. Romanelli, largely held in check throughout the game, still managed to gain 49 yards on 21 carries, surpassing the 1,000-yard mark for the season late in the third quarter. The Templeton High School gradu- ate finished the year with 1,015 yards, becoming the 14th Mustang ever to crack the 1,000-yard mark in a season. James Noble was the last one, accumulating 1,009 yards in 2006. Williams scored on runs of 16 and five yards while Langford kicked field goals spanning 28 and 37 yards, giving him a school-record 15 field goals this season. Langford also set a school record for points scored in a season by a kicker, finishing with 86. Mark Rodgers capped the Mustang scoring with a one-yard run with six minutes to play, capping a 120- yard rushing performance, his fifth career 100-yard game as a Mustang. The 31-yard drive was set up by a Troy Shotwell interception.

  • Cal Poly Football History -- 93 Years of Gridiron Tradition 1915 Through the 1940s al Poly football will play its 94th season this fall. Ever since that first 1915 team took the field, Cal Poly football has played with pride and tradition. From the stars of yesterday like Perry Jeter, Alex Bravo, Stan Sheriff, Bobby Beathard, Ted Tollner, John Madden, Mel Kaufman and Louis Jackson, to the stars of recent years like Chris Thomas, Kamil Loud, Seth Burford, Steve Prejean, Adam Herzing, David Richardson, Darrell Jones, Jordan Beck, Chris Gocong, Courtney Brown, Kyle Shotwell, Ramses Barden and Asa Jackson, Cal Poly has earned its place in college football history. An undefeated and unscored-upon team in 1933, a perfect record in 1953, playoff trips in 1978 and 1990, a national championship in 1980 and the school’s first two trips to the Football Championship Subdivision playoffs in 2005 and 2008 are just some of the many memories that have made Cal Poly football the pride of the campus and community. Several alumni have earned their place in the professional ranks including Super Bowl champions, NFL front office management and coaching as well as in the television booth. Now in its 94th season of football, the program continues its excellence under fourth-year head coach Tim Walsh and his coaching staff, ready for the school’s 19th season of play in the Football Championship Subdivision. After competing in the American West Conference for two years (and winning the conference title in 1994), Cal Poly was a I-AA Independent for eight seasons. The success didn’t stop there as the Mustangs earned their first national rank- ing in 1997, reaching as high as 16th following a win over Northern Iowa at home as the team went 10-1 that year. After eight years in the Great West, Cal Poly will move to the Big Sky Conference starting with the 2012 season. Hallmarks of the 21st century include a No. 14 national ranking by the 2003 squad after a 3-0 start; a 9-2 record, No. 5 ranking and inaugural Great West championship in 2004; a second straight Great West title in 2005, advancement to the quarterfinal round of the FCS playoffs, a 9-4 record and No. 6 ranking in the polls; back-to-back 7-4 records for the program’s fourth and fifth consecutive winning seasons in 2006 and 2007; an 8-3 mark, anoth- er Great West title, a national ranking as high as No. 3 and another FCS play- off berth in 2008 and a 7-4 mark and final No. 23 ranking in 2010. Cal Poly played mostly high school and college freshman teams in the first 16 seasons. Then head coach Howie O’Daniels established a little history in his first year at the helm in 1933. His Mustangs enjoyed an undefeated season and did not allow a single point, something only 30 teams in the history of college football have accomplished. The Mustangs continued their defense in 1934, not giving up a single point until the fifth game of the season. Cal Poly officially became a four-year school during the 1941 season and posted a 5-3-1 record under Coach O’Daniels. A 32-13 win over over San Diego State in ‘41 followed by a 51-0 win over San Francisco State highlighted the season. The Mutangs did not play football in 1943 and 1944 due to World War II. Ronnie Henderson coached Cal Poly to a 1-5-1 mark in 1945 before Coach O’Daniels returned to the helm in 1946 and guided the Mustangs to a 6-2-1 mark. Quarterback “Pinky” Bebernes of Santa Maria, along with teammates Marshall Samuels, Dave Cool, Joe Griffin and Al Weimers helped lead the Mustangs to a 21-13 upset win over San Diego State in 1946. Bruisers Jim Yates and Bud MacDougal provided the offensive punch much of that year. C The 1941 team was Cal Poly’s first as a four-year school and posted a 5-3-1 record. Above, Ted Tollner (center) hands off to Carl Bowser (left) and Ray Porras. Tollner was head coach at USC and San Diego State while Bowser was a long-time coach at Bakersfield College. Porras died in the 1960 plane crash. At right, Alex Bravo turns the corner for yardage. At left, Bob Lawson was an All-CCAA fullback in 1952 and 1953. 83
  • 1950s 1960s Coach Roy Hughes replaced Chuck Pavelko in 1950 and vowed, “In three years, we’ll be tough.” In 1953 he lived up to his promises with an undefeated season. The Mustangs were led by All-American Stan Sheriff along with Don Adams, Vic Buccola and quarterback Bob Neal while backs Perry Jeter and Alex Bravo led the nation in scor- ing. Some consider the 1958 team the best Mustang squad ever. Led by quarterbacks Bobby Beathard and Tom Klosterman, they were as tough as they come. Defensive linemen John Madden and Pat Lovell helped lead the team to 53 forced fumbles while allowing just eight touchdowns all year and only 175.8 yards per game. Beathard’s astute knowledge and leadership abili- ties later helped him as a scout in the NFL and as part of the front office for seven Super Bowl teams, including four winning squads. He retired as General Manager of the San Diego Chargers and more recent- ly served as an advisor for the Atlanta Falcons. Madden, a bruising tackle, went on to coach the Oakland Raiders to a Super Bowl triumph. After four seasons as color analyst for Monday Night Football on ABC, Madden moved over to NBC for its Sunday Night Football telecasts. Madden, who retired in 2009 has been honored with 14 Emmys for his work with all four major networks. He also was a catcher on the Cal Poly baseball team in the late 1950s. In the decade of the 1950s, Cal Poly compiled a 67-29-1 record. All 10 teams were coached by Hughes and the Mustangs beat such teams as San Diego State, Fresno State and Colorado State. Tragedy struck the 1960 Cal Poly football team following a game at Bowling Green State University on Saturday, October 29, 1960. Immediately following takeoff at Toledo Airport, the plane carrying the team crashed and killed 22 people, including 16 Mustang football players and the team manager. On May 1, 1998, the College Football Hall of Fame in South Bend, IN, dedicated new bronze plaques honoring the Cal Poly men killed in the plane crash along with the victims of plane crashes involving football teams from Wichita State (1970) and Marshall Uni- versity (1978). Dr. Everett Chandler, Dean of Students at Cal Poly at the time of the crash, helped unveil and dedicate the plaques. Mounted at the Hall of Fame, the plaques immortalize these individuals’ belief in the sport of football and how it symbolizes American society. The names of the deceased are listed for each univer- sity on separate plaques. In 2001, Cal Poly announced plans to change the name of Mustang Stadium to Mustang Memorial Field at Alex G. Spanos Stadium. The Memorial Plaza project was completed in 2006 and formally dedicated on Sept. 29, 2006 (see inside back cover). After Cal Poly won just 22 of 67 games in seven seasons fol- lowing the plane crash, Joe Harper was hired as the Mustangs’ head coach in 1968 and produced 7-3 and 6-4 marks in his first two seasons. Above left are George Cockerton (54) and Vic Buccola (57), who was an All-CCAA linemen in 1952 and 1953. Buccola later was AD at Cal Poly. Above right, the Mustang offensive line in 1963 was anchored by Bob Cardoza (52), team captain Gil Stork (51) and Frank Blakemore (55). 1950-59 Combined Record: 67-29-1 1953 . . .9-0 1957 . . .8-1 1958 . . .9-1 Perry Jeter scampers for yardage during the undefeated 1953 season.

  • October 29, 1960 -- Cal Poly Plane Crash "On Thanksgiving morning this year in the Coliseum, a 'Mercy Bowl' benefit game will be played to help San Luis Obispo write off its obligations to the tragedy victims, the children they left behind them, and the survivors. My feeling is, it is not only their obligation. It is the obligation of all of us interested in athletics. I can think of no better way to give thanks on that day that we are here and healthy, than to contribute to those who are alone with only memories of that day." — Jim Murray Los Angeles Times, 1961 The following is written on a memorial plaque on one of the peristyles at the Los Angeles Coliseum: On Saturday night, October 29, 1960, a plane carrying the Cal Poly 1960 football team, which was returning from a football game with Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, OH, crashed at the Toledo, Ohio Airport. As a result of this crash, 16 players and the team manager were killed and many injured. To financially assist the families of these athletes, a football game of mercy between Bowling Green and Fresno State was sponsored and staged in the Coliseum on Thanksgiving, November 23, 1961. All proceeds were donated to the Cal Poly Memorial Fund for this purpose.

ALWAYS IN OUR THOUGHTS: Prior to each home game, Cal Poly foot- ball players pay tribute to the 1960 football team at the memorial rock near the flagpole at the north end of Alex G. Spanos Stadium. For each road trip, the team loads up the buses near Mott Gym, drives to Alex G. Spanos Stadium and walks to the rock for reflection prior to departing campus. 85
  • 1970s A Mustang defense that included Tom Duggan, Greg Lee, Chris Smeland, Dave Quirk, Wayne Robinson and Tom Chantler led Cal Poly to an 8-0-1 record in 1972 and a trip to the Camellia Bowl for the NCAA Division II Championship of the Western United States at Hughes Stadium in Sacramento. After Mike Foley was injured Oct. 7 against Boise State, fullback Mike Thomas carried the load for the remainder of the season from out of the backfield. The Mustangs were ranked No. 3 in Division II by both the Associated Press and the UPI polls during the year. Cal Poly was also ranked No. 3 in total offense with 448 yards per game and No. 3 in scoring with 37.2 points per game. Running back Gary Davis began a stellar three-year Mustang career by assisting the 1973 squad to a 9-1 record. Davis went on to break most Cal Poly rushing records, finish- ing with 2,368 career yards. The 1976 Mustangs, with Joe Harper at the helm, finished 7-1-1, including a thrilling 17-15 win at Fresno State. The “Excitement Twins,” tailback Louis Jackson and receiver Robbie Martin, helped lead the 1978 squad to a 7- 3 record and an NCAA Division II playoff berth. The two scored half of Cal Poly’s 38 touchdowns that year. Individually, Jackson led Division II in rushing the entire sea- son and finished with 126.3 yards per game (including 267 vs. Portland State), while Martin had 23.1 receiving yards a game. The Mustangs suffered a 17-0 playoff loss to Winston- Salem State (NC) but would get their revenge two years later in the most memorable season in the history of Cal Poly foot- ball (see next page). Each of the 10 Mustang football teams in the 1970s posted a winning record, part of a string of 13 consecutive winning seasons under Harper. The streak ended in Harper’s last sea- son, 1981, when Cal Poly went 4-5. Harper went on to coach at Northern Arizona and Cal Lutheran. Among Harper’s 96 wins were seven against Fresno State, three each against Boise State and Nevada and one against UNLV. Clockwise from left, 1973 team cap- tains Chris Smeland, Fred Stewart, Greg Lee and Mike Coulson helped lead the ‘72 Mustangs to the Camellia Bowl; Top receiving corp of the ‘70s included Dana Nafziger (83), Rick Beatty (89) and Jimmy Childs (85); The 1978 team poses for a photo at Wake Forest Univer- sity in Winston-Salem, NC.; Place- kicker Tom Valos (32) still holds school record for his 92 career PAT kicks, including the 44 he made in 1970; Vic Ecklund retired as San Luis Obispo High School head foot- ball coach after guiding the Tigers to CIF-Southern Section title in 2001; Upper right, running back Gary Davis played for the Miami Dolphins. 86
  • 1980s No success was sweeter for the Mustangs than the 1980 season. Quarterback Craig Johnston and senior All-Americans Louis Jackson and Robbie Martin led the Mustangs to the NCAA Division II National Championship with a win over defending champion Eastern Illinois, 21-13, in the Zia Bowl at Albuquerque, NM. Martin scored all three touchdowns in the title game, including a diving 33-yard grab with 14:02 left. He also had a 42-yard punt return for the first Mustang TD. He finished the day with 164 yards to give the school its first NCAA title in foot- ball. Jackson led the nation in rushing again in 1980 and helped propel the Mustangs to the title game with a strong performance in the semifinals against Santa Clara at Mustang Stadium. Cal Poly played its first two playoff games at home that season, defeating Jacksonville State 15-0 and 38-14 over the Broncos before a standing-room-only crowd at Mustang Stadium and a regional telecast. Following the championship win over Eastern Illinois, Joe Harper was named Division II Coach of the Year. Cal Poly defeated eventual Division I-AA national champion Boise State 23-20 at home that year. Cal Poly managed only a 4-5 mark in 1981, Harper’s only losing campaign and his last as head coach of the Mustangs. Harper, whose 96 wins are the most by any Cal Poly football coach, went on to coach at Northern Arizona for three seasons and at Cal Lutheran for six years. Jim Sanderson coached the Mustangs to 6-5 and 6-4 seasons in five years at the helm before Lyle Setencich came on board in 1987. Cal Poly went 7-3, 5-4-1 and 5-5 in the first three seasons under Setencich before returning to the playoffs in 1990. It was a winning combination -- 5-7-9 -- that carried Cal Poly to 1980 NCAA Division II National Championship in Albuquerque, NM. Quarterback Craig Johnston wore No. 7, running back Louis Jackson wore No. 9 and wide receiver Robbie Martin wore No. 5.

  • 1990s The winning continued in the 1990s. Coach Lyle Setencich led the Mustangs to their first postseason appearance since 1980 with a 10-1 record during the 1990 regular season before a loss to North Dakota State in the first round. Standout wide receiver Chris Thomas, who played with the Washington Redskins, St. Louis Rams, Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers in the NFL, helped lead the team to a 14-7 win over Cal State Northridge before another packed Mustang Stadium to propel the Mustangs into the Division II playoffs. In 1994, coach Andre Patterson came to Cal Poly from Washington State, where he was an assistant defensive coach, and led the Mustangs to instant suc- cess in the school’s first season competing at the Division I-AA level. The move proved to be the right thing to do as Cal Poly went 7-4 and captured the American West Conference title with an undefeated conference record, posting wins over Southern Utah, Cal State Northridge and Sacramento State. Quarterback Mike Fisher smashed eight school records and five conference marks with 2,536 yards passing. Fisher went on to become Cal Poly’s all-time passer by the time he finished in 1995. His strong sup- porting cast in 1994 included two explosive freshmen, running back Antonio Warren and wide receiver Kamil Loud. The Mustangs were ranked fifth nationally against the rush in their maiden season in Division I-AA. In 1997, the Larry Welsh era kicked off with a bang as the Mustangs went 10-1 and just missed making the I-AA play- offs despite a No.17 national ranking. Warren and Craig Young each rushed for more than 1,000 yards during the sea- son and quarterback Alli Abrew finished the season as the No. 1-rated passer in all of Division I-AA. After a 7-0 start to the season, with wins over No. 16 Northern Iowa and I-A New Mexico State, the Mustangs fell for the first time on the road at Liberty. But a last-second win over Montana State and a 20-point whipping of previously undefeated Dayton at home capped a memorable season. While the team may have struggled the following three seasons, posting back-to-back-to-back 3-8 records, the Mustangs certainly entertained and continued to rewrite the record book. November 4, 2000 will be long remem- bered in the NCAA record book as one of the greatest offensive performanc- es in recent memory. Quarterback Seth Burford and receiver Kassim Osgood hooked up for a record-setting afternoon against Northern Iowa at Mustang Stadium as Burford finished with a school-record 566 yards passing on the day while Osgood set a new national record with 376 yards receiving to go with his two touchdowns. He caught a school-record 17 passes in the game and was named I-AA Offensive Player of the Week by Sports Network while Burford was honored as the I-AA Player of the Week by ESPN. Osgood was named an Associated Press All-American and, after seven seasons with San Diego and two at Jacksonville, he was a free agent as of July 1, 2012. Dynamic Duo of Late 1990s Antonio Warren (left) became Cal Poly’s all-time career rushing leader in 1998, passing former standout Louis Jackson, with 144 yards vs. Saint Mary’s on Sept. 26 at Mustang Stadium. Warren finished his Cal Poly stay with 3,834 career yards and 30 career rushing touchdowns. In 1999, Craig Young (right) passed Warren’s rcord with 176 yards against Portland State at home on Oct. 30 to become the new all-time leader. He fin- ished his career with 4,205 career yards. Both rushed for over 1,000 yards in 1997. In 2005, Warren led the Canadian Football League in rushing TDs with 13 and was fourth in combined yards with 2,179 for the BC Lions after rushing for 1,136 yards and catching 34 passes in 2004. He had played briefly for the New York Giants in 2003 and spent the 2001, 2002 and part of the 2003 season with the Calgary Stampeders. Young was an assistant coach at Sacramento State in 2003 and 2004. Cal Poly’s football training camp was held at Camp Roberts in 1999 and 2000. Members of the 1999 squad pose on a tank during a hot August afternoon. Mike Fisher is Cal Poly’s all-time career passing leader with 7,494 yards. Alli Abrew passed for 4,009 yards in two seasons (1996- 97) with the Mustangs.

  • 21st Century -- Return to Prominence The first 11 years of the 21st Century at Cal Poly produced four Great West Conference championships, a pair of NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision playoff berths, six consecutive winning seasons -- a streak that was snapped in 2009 -- and a national ranking as high as No. 3. In 2001, Cal Poly football fans had reason to get excited again as Rich Ellerson led the Mustangs to a 6-5 record in his first season, thanks to a strong defensive unit and the pass- ing combination of quarterback Seth Burford and Adam Herzing. The pair, who would later sign professional contracts in 2002, would hook up for a school-record 95-yard touch- down passing play in the team’s win over Sacramento State. The 2002 Mustangs slipped to 3-8 for the fourth time in five years, but Cal Poly won three of its final six games, including a thrilling 28-26 triumph over Weber State in the season finale at Mustang Stadium, and set the stage for six straight winning seasons. In 2003 Cal Poly posted a 7-4 mark, its best in six years, opening with a 34-13 victory at UTEP and closing with wins in four of its last five games. The Mustangs captured the inau- gural Great West Football Conference champi- onship in 2004 and finished 9-2 overall. Linebacker Jordan Beck won the Buck Buchanan Award as the nation’s best defensive player in the Football Championship Subdivision and was chosen in the third round of the NFL Draft by Atlanta after breaking most of Cal Poly’s records for tackles, finishing with 449 career stops. Darrell Jones finished his career with a school-record 177 receptions while defensive end Chris Gocong notched 17.5 sacks, another record. Gocong improved his mark to 23.5 sacks, won the Buck Buchanan Award en route to a spot in the East-West Shrine Game and led Cal Poly to a 9-4 record, another Great West title and the school’s first FCS playoff berth and a 35-21 win over Montana in 2005. The Mustangs fell to Texas State 14-7 in the quar- terfinal round. James Noble rushed for a school-record 1,578 yards and 16 touchdowns while wide receiver Ramses Barden caught 40 passes for 655 yards and nine scores as numerous redshirt freshmen made strong contributions. Linebacker Kyle Shotwell broke another school record with his 158 tackles. Gocong earned American Football Coaches Association All-American honors while Noble, Shotwell, Courtney Brown and Kenny Chicoine also were named All-Americans. Ellerson’s 2006 team finished 7-4, claimed third place in the Great West Football Conference, beat a Division I-A team for the second time in four years and ended up perhaps just a few key plays shy of its second straight FCS playoff berth. Linebacker Kyle Shotwell became the third Mustang in as many years to win the Buck Buchanan Award and was the fourth Mustang in 53 years to play in the East-West Shrine Game. James Noble became the first running back in Cal Poly history to rush for over 1,000 yards in consecutive seasons, Chris White was the fourth Mustang in as many years to land a spot on the American Football Coaches Association All-America Team. The Mustang defense posted three shutouts as the team finished ranked No. 16 in the nation by The Sports Network. A dozen Mustangs earned All- Great West honors and three were All-Americans. Cornerback Courtney Brown was selected in the seventh round of the NFL Draft by the Dallas Cowboys, Shotwell signed a free-agent contract with the Oakland Raiders and Kenny Chicoine broke the school career interceptions record. In 2007, the Mustangs duplicated their 7-4 mark of a year earlier, surpassing the 500-yard mark in total offense four times, shattering the school record for most points scored in one season and scoring 30 or more points seven times. Cal Poly broke 16 all-time school records and tied two oth- ers. Barden swept All-America honors across the board and center Stephen Field was a second-team All- American. Cal Poly, 2-2 for third place in the Great West, erased an 0-2 start with victories in seven of its final nine games. The Mustangs finished in the top 25 for the fourth straight season -- No. 24 in the Sports Network media poll. Cal Poly won seven straight games en route to an 8-3 mark, its second FCS playoff berth, its sixth straight win- ning season and a pair of four-time first-team All-Great West selections (Barden and Field), a first in the five-year history of the conference. The Mustangs defeated San Diego State at Qualcomm Stadium for the second time in three years, but finishes with losses to Big Ten Conference member Wisconsin in overtime and Weber State in the playoff opener. With 10 returning starters on offense, Cal Poly finished No. 1 in the nation in scoring (44.4) and total offense (487.45). Barden shattered the Mustang record book in almost all receiving categories, ending his career with 206 catches for 4,203 yards and 50 touchdowns. He finished fourth in balloting for the Walter Payton Award, played in the Senior Bowl and was drafted by the New York Giants in the third round the following April. Cal Poly was ranked No. 3 in the FCS coaches poll for the final seven weeks of the regular season and for the last Jordan Beck, Atlanta/Denver Chris Gocong, Philadelphia Eagles Courtney Brown, Dallas Cowboys Quarterback Seth Burford takes a snap from center John Lloyd, who started every game in four seasons (1999-2002). In eight years at the helm, Rich Ellerson coached the Mustangs to 56 wins and two playoff berths. Ramses Barden (left) and Stephen Field were four-time All-Great West first-team selections. 89
  • 21st Century -- Return to Prominence four weeks in the Sports Network media poll, finishing eighth and 10th respectively. The Tim Walsh Era opened in 2009 and, with just six senior starters and an entirely new coaching staff, the Mustangs slipped to 4-7. Fullback Jake Romanelli and cornerback Asa Jackson earned first-team All- Great West honors. Cal Poly ran a reverse in 2010 with a 7-4 record, finishing one victory shy of an FCS playoff berth and earning a final No. 23 nation- al ranking. Six of the wins were in come-from- behind fashion, the Mustangs played a gruelling schedule that featured a five-game road trip, and Cal Poly finished fourth in the nation in rushing offense and 14th in rushing defense. Linebacker Marty Mohamed earned Great West Defensive Player of the Year honors. The Mustangs were 6-5 in 2011, capturing their final Great West title prior to moving to the Big Sky Conference. Asa Jackson returned two interceptions for touchdowns, earned numerous postseason All-America honors and was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in the fifth round. Fullback Jake Romanelli rushed for 1,015 yards and quarterback Andre Broadous rushed for a school-record 18 touchdowns. Wide receiver Dominique Johnson caught 90 passes in two seasons at Cal Poly after transferring from UCLA.

  • Cal Poly Football History -- Emmy Award Winner John Madden Legendary NFL broadcaster and former Cal Poly football player John Madden called his final NFL game in 2008 after three seasons with NBC on its Sunday Night Football telecast. He worked for four seasons with Al Michaels as expert analyst for “Monday Night Football” on ABC. Madden, who is synonymous with NFL football for millions of fans nationwide, brought his ability to explain the game’s finer points along with his unique sense of humor to Monday Night Football in 2002 after 21 sea- sons as a game analyst for CBS and Fox. The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences has honored Madden with an unprece- dented 16 Outstanding Sports Personality/Analyst Emmy Awards, the most recent in recognition for his work during the 2008 season. In all, Madden has been nominated for a record 20 Emmy Awards. In addition, the American Sportscasters Association named him Sports Personality of the Year in 1985 and 1992 and, in 1982, Madden became the first NFL analyst to receive the Touchdown Club of America’s prestigious Golden Mike Award. Prior to joining the broadcasting ranks, Madden had an outstanding career as head coach of the NFL’s Oakland Raiders. He guided the Raiders to an overall record of 103-32-7, leading the team to seven AFC Western Division titles and a victory over the Minnesota Vikings in Super Bowl XI. Madden’s winning percent- age (.750) is the best of any head coach in NFL history. A linebacker coach when he began his NFL coaching career with Oakland in 1967, Madden became the head coach in 1969 at age 33, the youngest head coach in the American Football League. Madden retired in 1979 and started his football-broadcasting career at CBS in 1980. Before coaching in Oakland, Madden was the defen- sive coordinator at San Diego State from 1964-1966 where the Aztecs were ranked first among small colleges with a 26-4 record. From 1960-1964 Madden coached at Hancock College in Santa Maria. Madden started on both the offensive and defensive lines as a player for Cal Poly in 1957 and 1958 and was voted to the all-confer- ence team. He was also a catcher on the school’s baseball team. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in 1959 and a Master of Arts degree in 1961, both from Cal Poly. The Philadelphia Eagles selected him in the 21st round of the 1958 NFL draft, but a knee injury in his rook- ie season prematurely ended his career. Madden is also the author of several books. His latest effort is a cookbook titled “John Madden’s Ultimate Tailgating” released in 1998. His first four books — “Hey Wait a Minute, I wrote a Book,” “One Knee Equals Two Feet (and Everything Else You Wanted To Know About Football),” “One Size Doesn’t Fit All,” and “All Madden,” each written with New York Times sports columnist Dave Anderson — all reached the New York Times best-seller list. Born April 10, 1936 in Austin, Minnesota, Madden was raised in Daly City. He now resides in Pleasanton with his wife, Virginia. The couple, who celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary last fall, has two sons and five grandchildren. The 1958 Cal Poly football team picture. Madden (74) is in the back row, second from left. He also was a catcher on the Mustang baseball team in the late 1950s under Howie O’Daniels and Bill Hicks. 2012 Opponents Jerome Sauers Head Coach Tim Wilkinson Defensive Line Zach Bauman Running Back Northern Arizona Game 11 -- Nov. 17, 2012, Flagstaff, AZ, 4:05 p.m. MST 2011 Results Sept. 3 at Arizona . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .10-41 L Sept. 10 Fort Lewis . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .58-13 W Sept. 17 *at Portland State . . . . . . . . . . . . . .29-31 L Sept. 24 *Idaho State . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .20-3 W Oct. 1 Bye Oct. 8 *Eastern Washington . . . . . . . . . . .28-36 L Oct. 15 *at Montana State . . . . . . . . . . . . .24-41 L Oct. 22 *Montana . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .24-28 L Oct. 29 *at Sacramento State . . . . . . . . . .27-26 W Nov. 5 *Northern Colorado . . . . . . . . . . . .34-14 W Nov. 12 *at Weber State . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .31-34 L Nov. 19 Southern Utah . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .24-27 L *Big Sky Conference game 2012 Schedule Sept. 1 at Arizona State . . . . . . . . . . . . . .7:30 p.m. Sept. 8 at UNLV . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .TBA Sept. 15 Fort Lewis . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .4:05 p.m. Sept. 22 *at Montana . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .12:30 p.m. Sept. 29 *Portland State . . . . . . . . . . . . . .4:05 p.m. Oct. 6 Bye Oct. 13 *at North Dakota . . . . . . . . . . . . .1:05 p.m. Oct. 20 *UC Davis . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .4:05 p.m. Oct. 27 *at Northern Colorado . . . . . . . .12:35 p.m. Nov. 3 *at Idaho State . . . . . . . . . . . . . .3:05 p.m. Nov. 10 *Southern Utah . . . . . . . . . . . . . .4:05 p.m. Nov. 17 *Cal Poly . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .4:05 p.m. *Big Sky Conference game All Times Mountain Location: Flagstaff, AZ 86011 Founded: 1899 Enrollment: 25,204 President: Dr. John Haeger (Loyola-Chicago ‘64) Vice President of Athletics: Dr. Lisa Campos (Colorado State ‘99) Colors: Blue, Gold and Sage Conference: Big Sky Nickname: Lumberjacks Stadium (Capacity): Walkup Skydome (10,000) Surface: Real Grass Field Turf Team Information 2011 Overall Record: 4-7 2011 Conference Record (Place): 3-5 (Tie-Sixth) Basic Offense: Multiple Basic Defense: 4-3 Lettermen Returning / Lost: 39 / 20 Starters Returning / Lost: 15 / 9 Series: Northern Arizona leads, 8-0 Last Meeting: Northern Arizona 24-7 in 2003 at Flagstaff, AZ Coaching Staff Head Coach: Jerome Souers (Oregon ‘83) Record / Years: 76-82 / 14 Years Overall / Years: Same Football Office Phone: (928) 523-6787 Best Time to Call: Weekday Mornings (Contact SID) Assistant Coaches: Rich Scangarello (Off.

(2001-04) Aaron Williams (2002-05) Kyle Shotwell (2003-06) Quartet of Mustangs in the NFL When the National Football League opened training camps in July, Cal Poly had four former players on active rosters -- defensive end Chris Gocong with the Cleveland Browns, wide receiver Ramses Barden with the New York Giants, cornerback Asa Jackson with the Baltimore Ravens and offensive lineman Scott Winnewisser with the New Orleans Saints. Cornerback Courtney Brown was on the roster of the New York Giants in the summer of 2011 but never played, while linebacker Mark Restelli was released by the Miami Dolphins on Sept. 3, 2011, despite a strong preseason. Wide receiver Dominique Johnson was cut by the Minnesota Vikings during the 2011 preseason as well. Linebackers Jordan Beck (Denver Broncos) and Kyle Shotwell were released in 2008 and Brown was let go by the Dallas Cowboys in 2009 and signed with the Giants in early 2010. Gocong, Beck and Shotwell were Buck Buchanan Award winners at Cal Poly. Restelli played three seasons with the Edmonton Eskimos in the Canadian Football League, recording 74 defensive tackles, 21 special teams tackles, and 4 sacks. The Montreal Alouettes signed Restelli in early 2012 but released him on June 16, two weeks prior to the regular season. He is a free agent. Beck was drafted in the third round in 2005 by Atlanta, Gocong was a third-round choice of the Philadelphia Eagles in 2006 and traded to Cleveland in April 2010, Brown was chosen by Dallas in the seventh round in 2007, Shotwell signed as a free agent shortly after the 2007 draft with the Oakland Raiders and Barden was a third-round choice of the Giants in 2009. Shotwell was released by the Raiders on Sept. 1, 2007. He played in exhibition games with the Raiders in 2007 and Indianapolis Colts in 2008 and was on the practice squads of the Minnesota Vikings, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Kansas City Chiefs, all in 2008. Beck was cut by the Falcons on Sept. 3, 2007, signed a free- agent contract with Denver on Oct. 17, 2007 and was released mid- way through the 2008 season. 109

  • Osbaldo Orozco: Destined for the Battlefield By Ryan Huff The Tribune San Luis Obispo County sbaldo Orozco wanted to be a soldier long before he came to Cal Poly. After watching “Rambo” as kids, he and his brothers would use broomsticks and knives to attack a make-believe enemy soldier — a cactus in their back yard. Indeed, some would say Orozco was destined for the battlefield, where he died April 26, 2003, on the front lines of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Cal Poly officials held a public memorial May 22, 2003, at the campus’ War Memorial Plaza to honor the 26-year-old alumnus and U.S. Army First Lieutenant. “Baldo,” as his friends called him, died when the Bradley fighting vehicle he was riding in rolled over while rushing to help other American soldiers under attack near Tikrit in northern Iraq. At the memorial service, a few hundred peo- ple — including family, veterans, students and past teammates — remembered the former school football star who was commissioned as an Army officer on June 16, 2001, the same day he earned his bachelor’s degree in social sci- ence. As the late-afternoon sun reflected off the bronze Mustang Statue, school officials added a 64th name to the plaque below that honors Cal Poly students who died on the battlefield. Orozco’s mother and wife gripped each other’s hands throughout the service and wiped their tears with white tissues through the playing of “Taps.” Speaker after speaker talked about a big, muscular man full of enthusiasm and passion for his family, school, football team and the Army. Former football teammate Steve Prejean recalled that Orozco was so proud of his Mexican heritage that he would blare mariachi music from his pickup and sing along. Prejean also recollected how fired up his old teammate was on the gridiron. “Here we were on a hot day in August during double days (practices),” Prejean said, “and Baldo is talking as if he wasn’t hot and didn’t have an extra 10 pounds of pads on his body. The guy was just full of energy.” Orozco was known for his pregame ritual of applying black war paint to his face. He earned All-American honors as a line- backer for the Mustangs and finished his football career in 1999 with 300 tackles — then third on the team’s all-time list. He brought that same passion to aca- demics, said business professor Colette Frayne. She remembered the first day she met Orozco, when she tried to tutor 30 foot- ball players after they were exhausted from an afternoon practice. “Most of the players wanted to be somewhere else,” Frayne said. “But Baldo sat front and center and said, ‘Hi, I’m Baldo. Bring it on!’ ” The whole room erupted into laughter, until the 225-pound Orozco turned around and said, “Hey, be nice to her, man. She’s trying to help us out.” Toward the end of the memorial service, Orozco’s former teammates gave his wife, Mayra, a framed No. 45 green-and-gold Cal Poly football jersey. Lt. Col. Norma Tovar, a Cal Poly military science professor, also presented her with Bronze Star and Purple Heart awards. Orozco — who grew up in Earlimart in Tulare County — served in the university’s ROTC pro- gram. He was the first member of his family to graduate from college. He went on to command a platoon in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, where they guarded Al Qaeda prisoners. After he returned from Iraq, Orozco and his wife were to start a family. His brother, Andy Orozco, said he now wants to enroll in a college ROTC program and become an officer. “It pumps me up even more and adds gasoline to the fire,” said the 18-year-old, who along with his three brothers wore black No. 45 armbands. Another brother, Jorge Orozco, 28, said he was proud that “Baldo” fought for his country but saddened to lose his best friend. “It’s war, and it’s going to happen,” he said. “There’s a price to pay for freedom. And unfor- tunately, it cost us our brother.” The Cal Poly Athletics Department honors the memory of Orozco with an award given perpet- ually to the student-athlete who exemplifies what he represented; leadership, outstanding personal achievement, the ability to overcome obstacles, commitment and someone who reflects sacrifice. The Orozco Inspirational Award is presented at the Night of the Mustang to deserving student-athletes as deemed appro- priate.

  • ustang Memorial Plaza at Alex G. Spanos Stadium was formally dedicated September 29, 2006, with over 400 people in attendance, including survivors, friends and family members of those who lost their lives. Cal Poly’s 1960 football team was honorably inducted into the Cal Poly Athletics Hall of Fame later that evening at Chumash Auditorium. Richard Equinoa, retired director of career services at Cal Poly, read the names of the 53 members of the team who were inducted. As many as 46 of the inductees were represented at the induction dinner. Gil Stork, a survivor of the Oct. 29, 1960, plane crash at Toledo, Ohio, that took the lives of 18 team members, served as Master of Ceremonies. Representing the 1960 football team at the podium were survivors Carl Bowser and Ted Tollner. The unity and depth of brotherhood shared by the 1960 players made the group an ideal selection for Cal Poly’s unprecedented selection of an entire team for Hall of Fame honors, according to Alison Cone, Cal Poly’s direc- tor of athletics at the time. Eighteen of the original 25 survivors of the tragic plane crash were still alive at the time, and most were present for the remembrance ceremonies, as well as a number of family members. “This dedication is one of the most significant moments in Cal Poly’s history, as well as for me personally,” said then-Cal Poly President Warren J. Baker. “The new Mustang Memorial Plaza is Cal Poly’s tribute to the 1960 team. With this plaza we will preserve forever the memory of the 18 who perished in the tragic crash, so that their hopes and dreams live on.” A flock of doves was released during the dedication ceremony and PolyPhonics performed two songs. President Baker presided over the unveiling of the granite plaques placed on 18 copper pillars representing each of the 18 team members -- 16 players, a Mustang booster and the team manager -- who lost their lives in the crash. The 15,000-square-foot Mustang Memorial Plaza is rich in symbolism. It is anchored by a striking bronze sculpture of a mustang created by Roy Harris -- aptly titled “Unbridled Spirit” -- which stands at the center of a ‘team huddle’ created by a circle of 18 pillars faced in copper, a metal that grows more beautiful with time. Each of the 18 pillars stands at the same height as that of its honoree. Soft beams of light glow from the tops of the pillars, permanent beacons that serve to guide those who wish to honor the memory of the team. Each pillar displays a granite plaque engraved with the 1961 yearbook photo of the honored individual, statistics for that player, and personal information. As one family member wrote in tribute to its lost loved one, “Always loved. Never forgotten.” Survivors of the 1960 Cal Poly plane crash include Ted Tollner (left), who spoke at the Hall of Fame dinner; Al Marinai (center), who helped initiate the plaza project; and Gil Stork (right), Master of Ceremonies for both the plaza dedication and Hall of Fame dinner.
