Don Moran MISSION STATEMENT Wayne State University believes that intercollegiate athletics are an important and wholesome adjunct to the principal purposes of the University: (1) the advancement of knowledge through research and investigation; and (2) the dissemination of knowledge through teaching. To that end, participants in intercollegiate athletics must be, fi rst and foremost, students whose fundamental aim is to obtain a sound education. A major mission of the University is to achieve an increasing level of excellence in the quality of its programs and to enhance the visibility and recognition of the University as a whole. Students who participate in intercollegiate athletics are directly involved in the implementation of this mission of excellence, and by such participation, provide a unifying objective of community and University. Wayne State University believes that a well-balanced program in intercollegiate sports is important so long as it remains in proper focus as an ancillary of the real purposes of the University; so long as it remains under academic control; so long as the players are bona fi de students; and so long as the coaches strive to instill qualities of honesty, sportsmanship and clean play.

  • 2015 FOOTBALL MEDIA GUIDE #WARRIORFB 5 Since Rob Fournier was named Director of Athletics at Wayne State University on September 1, 2000, a lot has changed. In those 15 years, the department’s competitive success, classroom achievements, community outreach initiatives and the physical structure of the athletic campus has seen a signifi cant transformation. That development has followed a strategic plan that models business forecasting and has realized defi ned goals/ objectives. The results are well-documented. That competitive success is evident in Wayne State’s national standing against all Division II institutions. WSU’s 14 best fi nishes in the prestigious NACDA Cup standings (which measures the overall competitive success of athletic programs around the country) have all occurred in the last 14 years including the three highest marks ever in the past seven years – 11th in 2009, 14th in 2014 and 21st in 2010. Those fi nishes secured an unprecedented top four (4%), top fi ve (5%) and top seven (7%) percent ranking among all Division II athletic programs in the country. Ten of 18 athletic teams advanced to the NCAA tournament last season. In the past 14 years WSU has catapulted over 100 places in the NACDA rankings. Additionally, in those 15 years, 43 WSU coaches have been named conference coach of the year while fi ve have gone on to be distinguished as National Coach of the Year. In 2012, the women’s swimming and diving program won the fi rst national title since women’s fencing in 1989. Football had its best season ever in 2011 reaching the Division II national championship game. During Fournier’s tenure at WSU, Warrior athletic teams have won 33 conference regular-season titles, 11 league tournament titles and eight postseason regional, super regional or national titles. For his eff orts, Fournier was honored by NACDA as the Athletics Director of the Year in the Central Region in 2008. Last year, WSU had twenty-eight (28) All-Americans. In the past 10 years, 294 Warriors have been named All- Americans, the most in any decade. In the 98 years of WSU Athletics, 347 of the 568 all-time All-Americans (61 percent of the total) have been so honored since 2000. Another strategic measurement continues to be noteworthy. The 2014-15 academic year continued both academic achievement and community volunteerism. Fifteen (15) of WSU’s 17 athletic programs (women’s indoor and outdoor track is counted as one) have cumulative grade-point averages above 3.00 with a composite cumulative GPA of all WSU student-athletes at 3.10. The annual NCAA Federally-mandated graduation rate (fi ve year) for WSU student-athletes is at an all-time high of 72 percent which has risen over 30 percent in Fournier’s tenure from programs such as: survival skills, connect-mentoring and learning specialists! In addition, in the last 12 months, WSU student- athletes contributed an exemplary 10,754 community service hours volunteering at a variety of Detroit initiatives. In the past six years alone, student-athletes have committed 53,863 community service hours with such programs as Habitat For Humanity, University Prep Elementary, Capuchin Soup Kitchen and Warming Center, Adopt a Family Thanksgiving Basket, Basic Needs Drive, Be The Match Donor Registry, Covenant House Michigan, NSO (Neighborhood Service Organization), SOCKS in the City, L.I.N.K. Mentoring (Local Intervention Network for Kids, S.M.A.R.T.S. Mentoring, Big Brother Big Sisters, Make-A- Wish Foundation, COTS, Toys for Tots, Forgotten Harvest, Gleaners Food Bank and Manhood Mentoring Project to name only some of the programs. The conference recognized those achievements with an unprecedented association’s honor of the Sportsmanship Award and Community Service Award in 2013. The rise in both academic average and community outreach has been dramatic, consistent and unprecedented. In addition, in the latest federally- mandated graduation rate report, it noted WSU student- athletes received an undergraduate degree at a rate 30 percent higher than the comparable campus population. These, and other academic achievements, are recognized at the annual academic banquet, which he started in 2001 and combines a salute to the University’s faculty. Fournier’s ability to generate private and corporate support has dramatically altered the physical setting of the athletic campus and the practice/competitive opportunities for WSU student-athletes. In his 15 years, he has secured $14,762,796 in revenue for the athletic department including $13,231,677 in cash and an additional 1,531,119 in deferred gifts. That total has helped complete the following facility initiatives: football locker room; multipurpose indoor facility; new men’s and women’s basketball offi ce complex; baseball’s replica Fenway Park baseball stadium which displays the former Tiger Stadium scoreboard on its famous “Green Monster facade; men’s and women’s basketball coaches offi ces and fi lm room; softball locker room and coaches offi ces, along with a grandstand, walkway and press box; a Boston Garden-like parquet fl oor for basketball; Hall of Fame foyer; swimming video board, pool deck and bleachers in the natatorium; football ticket booths and stadium entrance; outdoor marquee; FieldTurf football fi eld; a new outdoor track; scoreboards for baseball and football with a video display; trainer’s treatment areas; and new USTA outdoor tennis courts with scoreboard. The physical transformation has been both noticeable and imaginative and boasts a number of cosmetic infrastructure changes as well. Fournier added a radio and statewide television package to WSU media outreach. He also added the athletic department’s fi rst website, a quarterly magazine (Warrior Within) and a weekly coach’s show (Winters on Wednesdays). He also directs and oversees the University’s intramural and club sport programs and the Mort Harris Recreation and Fitness Center. Furthermore, Wayne State is the only school in the country to designate a week of activities to promote Women’s Athletics as “W” Week will be having its seventh annual celebration in April 2016 highlighted by “W” Day. The addition of new programs in women’s indoor and outdoor track and fi eld, and women’s golf follows an internal gender-equity plan designed to better opportunities. Fournier served three years as a member of the NCAA regional-ranking football committee whose responsibilities include selecting the top teams in the region each week and the teams that advance to the postseason. He also spent three seasons on the NCAA softball regional ranking committee. He currently serves as a member of the GLIAC Finance Committee, while also serving on the infractions committee, scheduling committee and long-range budget planning committee. Prior to joining Wayne State, Fournier served as the Senior Associate Commissioner and general counsel for the Mid-American Conference. While serving as the acting Commissioner of the Conference (1999), he moved the league offi ce from Toledo to Cleveland, wrote and secured a long-term contract for the men’s basketball tournament at Quicken Loans Arena and secured the three largest corporate gifts in the history of the MAC including First Energy as the tournament sponsor for the men’s postseason basketball tournament. He also wrote and negotiated the initial Motor City Bowl football contract that is the MAC’s longest postseason Bowl alignment. As the chief compliance offi cer for the league, Fournier investigated and reported on over 350 infraction cases that insured fairness in case resolution and corrective action. At the request of institutions, he has appeared before the NCAA Committee on Infractions and conducted campus reviews of compliance eff ectiveness in fi nancial aid, rules education, eligibility and institutional control. He has served as liaison to various NCAA committees for which the conference held cabinet positions. The MAC presidents recognized Fournier’s achievements when they unanimously conferred a Certifi cate of Commendation and a mark of esteem for his eff orts in 1999. A licensed attorney, he received his bachelor’s degree summa cum laude and his master’s with honors from the University of Akron. He was a national forensics champion and qualifi ed for the national fi nals in six events. Fournier received his law degree from Akron in 1986 and was admitted to the Ohio bar that same year where he is still licensed to practice. ATHLETICS DIRECTOR ROB FOURNIER

WSU rushed for over 190 yards per game and 20 touchdowns during the 2013 season. Wooster’s entire 2012 tight end group consisted of either true freshmen and or redshirt freshmen. He had one player earn Academic All-GLIAC honors (Ethan Walsh) and another (Trent Brodbeck) be voted WSU’s Off ensive Rookie of the Year. His 2011 tight ends corps helped the Warriors to a school record for overall wins (12), road wins (8), while winning four consecutive road playoff games to reach the national title contest. In addition, senior Greg Oberstaedt was named to the GLIAC All-Academic team. The Warriors ranked in the top 40 nationally in four off ensive categories for the 2011 campaign -- ninth in fewest sacks allowed (0.94 per game), 23rd in scoring off ense (34.38 ppg), 26th in passing effi ciency (144.02) and 33rd in rushing off ense (200.56 ypg). In 2010, one of his student-athletes (Austin Hughes) was named to the All-GLIAC Honorable Mention team, while also receiving the Ron Solack #35 Award. In addition, WSU was second in the league in both rushing touchdowns (27) and fewest sacks allowed (9). In terms of NCAA rankings, the Warriors fi nished sixth in fewest sacks allowed per game (0.82), 30th in rushing off ense (194.73 yards per game) and 45th in scoring off ense (31.55 points per game). All this helped the Warriors set a school record for overall wins (9) in 2010, conference victories (8) and the highest AFCA ranking in school history (12th). All three of his players (Hughes, Greg Oberstaedt and Cory Zauner) earned GLIAC All-Academic honors for the 2009 campaign. After attending Eastern Michigan in the fall of 1995, he transferred to WSU in the spring of 1996 and saw limited action that season for the Tartars. He then started all 11 games for WSU in both 1997 and 1998 at right tackle. As a senior and team captain, Wooster lettered as a left guard in 1999. He was twice named to the MIFC All-Academic team (1997 and 1999). Wooster earned his undergraduate degree from WSU in 2001 and a master’s in exercise science with a concentration in exercise & sport psychology in 2007, also from WSU. Prior to joining the WSU coaching staff , he served as the off ensive coordinator and off ensive line coach at Warren Mott High School. He is married to former WSU softball player Christina Vitale, and the couple resides in Shelby Twp. with their daughter, Elliana Faith.

  • 2015 FOOTBALL MEDIA GUIDE WSUATHLETICS.COM12 The 2015 Wayne State University football squad, led by 12th year head coach Paul Winters, will look to continue the strong performance at the end of the 2014 campaign which saw the Warriors win their fi nal four contests. WSU posted a 7-4 overall record a year ago, while going 6-4 in the GLIAC. The Warriors lost three of those four games by a total of seven points, which shows how close the team was to going 10-1 and making run at the playoff s. Key departures from last year’s team will create a new-look Warriors squad in 2015. This includes First Team All-GLIAC running back Desmond Martin, currently a member of the Detroit Lions, and former linebacker and American Football Coaches Association All-American Nores Fradi. These two student-athletes along with veteran stalwarts Ben Walker and Thom Box played pivotal roles for the Warriors last season and the seasons prior. “This year’s team is diff erent,” said Winters. “Defensively we have matured, with three senior defensive backs to be excited about, and off ensively we have a fi fth-year senior starting at quarterback in Carl Roscoe and a more experienced off ensive line.” WSU returns 45 letterwinners and 12 starters including seven on the off ensive side of the ball. The quarterback position has one veteran in fi fth-year senior Carl Roscoe, who has made 15 career starts, and four others who have never taken a snap in a regular-season college football game. Last season, Roscoe fi nished ninth nationally in passing yards per completion (15.09), 16th in passing yards per attempt (8.59) and 47th in passing effi ciency (137.05). Backing-up Roscoe will be redshirt sophomore Trevor Van Tubbergen, fi fth-year senior Ryan Newcom and true freshmen D.J. Zezula and Christian Klink. Newcom is in fourth year as a Warrior after redshirting his freshman season at Ashland, while Van Tubbergen in his third year in the program. Zezula went 38-2 as a starter and led Clarkston to back-to-back state titles in 2013 and 2014, including 27 straight wins. Klink passed for 2,300 yards and 20 touchdowns as a senior in high school in 2014. Last year, WSU produced its ninth 1,000-yard running back in the last 10 seasons as Desmond Martin (Detroit Lions) rushed for 1,578 and 16 touchdowns. Even though Martin and fellow senior Jay Hayes have graduated, the cupboard is not bare in the Warriors backfi eld. Redshirt sophomore Romello Brown rushed for 102 yards and one score in 20 carries a year ago. Complimenting Brown in the backfi eld will be sophomore Demetrius Stinson, redshirt freshman Deiontae Nicholas and redshirt senior Rabeah Beydoun. Stinson is entering his third fall camp (second at Wayne State after spending his initial season at Ferris State). Nicholas was a freshman redshirt last year at WSU, while Beydoun averaged nearly six yards per carry last season and also made a couple of special teams tackles. Waiting in the wings are two highly-touted recruits in DeOntay Moff ett and James Hill. Competition will be fi erce at the fullback position after veteran Sean McAuliff e graduated. Redshirt junior Garrett Wiska earned his fi rst WSU letter a year ago after transferring from Notre Dame College. Redshirt sophomore Jason McCauslin is entering his third camp with the Warriors. Freshman Stephen Charron could also be in the mix. Charron is versatile enough he could also see action at tailback. The Warrior receiving corps will be looking for new players to emerge this fall as nearly 70 percent of last year’s receptions by this group have graduated in Michael Johnson and Val Showers. A pair of fi fth-year seniors plus two redshirt juniors will lead this contingent in 2015. Will Wheat and Mike Sawchuk have played in 23 and 22 games, respectively in their fi rst four years in the Green and Gold. Wheat has nine career catches, while Sawchuk’s availability is to be determined after an injury during fall camp. Jamel Hicks had 14 receptions a year ago including two for touchdowns, while Brandon Tinsley hauled in 10 passes last season including four of at least 20 yards. Junior Brian Blackburn, after moving from quarterback, and redshirt sophomore Manny Mendoza are pushing the veterans for playing time. Three redshirt freshmen in Corey Ester, Logan Smith and Western Michigan transfer Jordan Billingslea are battling for spots on the travel roster. In addition, three true freshmen in Kyle Lewis, Marcus Bailey and Shane Holler are likely to be redshirted in 2015. The tight end position is a veteran and deep group with all fi ve returning from 2014. Senior Ethan Walsh was elected a team captain in 2015. He has played in all 32 games in his fi rst three seasons, making 29 starts. Walsh was named to the 2014 All-GLIAC Honorable Mention Team and is a three- time Academic All-GLIAC honoree. Redshirt juniors Trent Brodbeck, Aaron Weston and Nathan White all have seen considerable playing time both on off ense and on special teams. Brodbeck returned from an injury in 2013, to be voted to the 2014 Daktronics All-Super Region 4 Second Team after earning All-GLIAC First Team accolades. Brodbeck was named WSU Football’s Scholar- Athlete Award winner for 2014-15. Weston has played in 21 games over the last two seasons and is a two-time Academic All-GLIAC selection. Besides seeing action in all 11 games at tight end in 2014, White was also a key member of special teams playing on punt coverage in all 11 games, kickoff return in eight contests and kickoff coverage in fi ve games. Preston Pelham (Tecumseh, Mich.) redshirted in 2014 and is battling the four upperclassmen for playing time this season. Two recruits in Luke Ketterman and Kyle Muller should be able to redshirt in 2015. Last year, WSU averaged 5.1 yards per carry, was among the national leaders in both red zone off ense at 90 percent (38-of-42) and yards per catch (14.4). Despite losing two fi fth-year senior co-captains in the middle of the season, the Warriors still had strong performances from the off ensive line. The four returning starters have combined for 64 career starts. Leading the group is pre-season All-American (by Lindy’s) Nate Theaker, who has 22 career starts. Junior Robert Kelly has made 21 starts, while sophomore Tommy Richardson and junior Sawyer McFadden have 11 and 10 career starts, respectively. Theaker’s status for the year is in question after surgery in August. Kelly and Richardson have both moved one position to left with Kelly heading to left guard and Richardson to center. A solid corps of juniors looking to contribute more this year include Alex Ziedas, JT Pillars, Andy Zimmerman, Sam Tate, Ed Reny and Jake Sheets. Sophomore Greg Webber is another individual looking to contribute. The versatility is also evident in this group as Ziedas can play both guard and center, while Tate can swing between guard and tackle. All four recruits are slated to redshirt in order to get stronger and adjust to the collegiate game. The tackles are Tarron Hampton and Justin Tockstein, along with guards Charlie Younger and Nick Davis. In 2014, the Warrior defensive line corps produced two Senior quarterback Carl Roscoe has started 15 games under center for the Warriors. Senior tight end Ethan Walsh has started 29 games in his Warrior career. 2015 OUTLOOK
  • 2015 FOOTBALL MEDIA GUIDE #WARRIORFB 13 Academic All-GLIAC selections in Blake Mazur and Alex Medenbach along with WSU Defensive Rookie of the Year award recipient Jake Carrizales. Carrizales was a Second Team All-GLIAC selection, while Justice Akuezue and Sam Sillmon were both named to the All-GLIAC Honorable Mention Team. Carrizales was third in the GLIAC in both sacks and tackles for loss per game, while Sillmon was among the conference leaders in fumble recoveries. As a team, WSU led the GLIAC in 2014 and ranked 22nd nationally in sacks (2.91 per game), while ranking eighth in NCAA Division II with 9.3 tackles for loss per game. The Warriors were ranked 38th in D-II in total defense allowing 338.5 yards per game. With three fi fth-year seniors slated to start on the defensive line plus sophomore Jake Carrizales at one of the defensive end spots, this position group is poised for an outstanding year in 2015. The nose tackle spot will be spearheaded by Raafat El Hage, while junior Dalton Binkowski and sophomores Blake Mazur and LaMonte Baker provide depth at the position. The defensive tackle slot is even more experienced than the nose tackle position with senior Derrick Rodgers being backed-up by juniors Jada Littlejohn and Medenbach. With Carrizales at one defensive end spot, senior Ashawn Butler is slated to start on the other side. Back-ups on the outside include junior Adam Williams along with redshirt freshmen Derrick Coleman and Kolby Nance. All six incoming defensive linemen -- Tiroca Battle, Brady Beedon, Caleb Carrizales, Jon Currie, Justin Hollins and Jalen Lewis -- are slated to be redshirted. Heading into 2014, the linebacking corps was possibly the thinnest in terms of depth. But the performances of seniors Nores Fradi and Marcell Jones, along with middle linebacker Senior safety Zak Bielecki has made 16 starts in the Warrior secondary. Anthony DeDamos turned this group into a weekly highlight show. The lone starter returning among the linebackers is DeDamos. He notched a career-high 12 tackles (8-4) in the season fi nale win over Hillsdale, along with recording the longest non-scoring interception return in school history (85 yards) breaking an 89-year school record to earn the WSU Defensive Player of the Week for the third time that season. DeDamos fi nished third on the squad in both tackles (70) and tackles for loss (12.0 - 11 solo, 2 assisted), while ranking tied-for-second in forced fumbles (2). His 12.0 TFL was tied- for-sixth in the GLIAC and two fumble recoveries was tied- for-fi fth. Redshirt juniors Valorian Cunningham and Idris Hobdy are slated to start on the outside in 2015. Cunningham played in the fi rst seven games, making one start (vs. Carson Newman). His lone “offi cial” tackle vs. Michigan Tech was a six-yard sack. He also made the stop on MTU’s PAT run. Cunningham tied for the team lead with eight special teams tackles (8-0), all on kickoff coverage. Hobdy saw playing time at linebacker and on punt coverage in all 11 games. He recorded a season- high three tackles in three diff erent contests. Sophomore Dustin Carlin was the lone true freshman to play in 2014. Besides seeing playing time at linebacker in all 11 games, he also blocked a Findlay punt. A quintet of redshirt freshmen in Carterris Carter, Drew Dowding, Randy Garvin, Anthony Pittman and Zach Heddy have had a year to adjust to the speed of the college game and add the strength needed to compete in the GLIAC. Junior Brook Higgins is also in the mix for a spot on the travel squad after seeing action in fi ve contests a year ago. Expected to redshirt in 2015 are four highly-touted recruits in Leon Eggleston, Darius Griggs, Michael Hazime and Ryan Smith. In 2014, the Warrior defensive backs corps produced two All-Region recipients as Zak Bielecki was a Daktronics Second Team All-Region honoree while Gerren DuHart was a Beyond Sports Network Second Team All-Region selection prior to being named to the USA Football All-America Second Team. Bielecki tied for fi rst in the GLIAC and was ninth nationally in solo tackles per game (6.6), while also earning Academic All-GLIAC honors. DuHart was a First Team All-GLIAC honoree while Bielecki was named to the All-GLIAC Honorable Mention Team. With three fi fth-year seniors having signifi cant starting experience plus sophomore James Howard and junior Lairren Johnson battling for the second cornerback position, the secondary looks to be solid again in 2015. The safety spots will be led by Zak Bielecki and Jamiil Williams. Bielecki has started 16 contests with Williams making 22 career starts. Junior James Hendrix and sophomore Ron Brant will provide depth at safety and also help on special teams. Freshmen Andy Bielecki and Kyle Toth will most likely redshirt in 2015. Brandon Lee will start at one corner position opposite either Howard or Johnson. Lee has started the last 17 games at cornerback for the Warriors. Senior defensive end Ashawn Butler was voted one of the team captains for 2015. Five true freshmen plus redshirt freshmen Jared Singletary and Devyn Manson will back-up the aforementioned trio of cornerbacks. The incoming group includes Greg McDade, Terry Sanders, Donte Eubanks, Tre’von Avery and Anthony Copeland. Both kickers return from a year ago in senior Majd Khytaz and redshirt sophomore Paul Graham. Khytaz was a three- time WSU Special Teams Player of the Week in 2014, while also earning GLIAC All-Academic Team honors. Khytaz averaged 53.6 yards on 69 kickoff s with three touchbacks last season. Meanwhile, Graham was voted to the 2014 All-GLIAC Second Team as well as being selected WSU’s Special Teams Most Valuable Player. He was named to the USA College Football Freshman All-America Team along with being voted to the Beyond Sports Network All-Super Region 4 Third Team. Graham tied-for-second in the GLIAC with 14 made fi eld goals (made his fi rst 14 attempts) which tied him for the national lead in fi eld goal percentage (93.3). He was 18th nationally in fi eld goals made per game (1.27). In terms of punting, Graham averaged 37.9 yards per kick on 39 attempts with 13 inside the 20. Brant had a team-high 11 punt returns a year ago and averaged 7.9 yards per attempt. He had a 34-yard return at Malone, which was the longest by a Warrior since Josh Renel had a 55-yard return at Ashland (10/15/2011). Ester could also see action returning punts. The kickoff return duties will be handled by newcomers to that position as 32 of last year’s 33 kickoff returns (25 by Val Showers and 7 by Jay Hayes) graduated. Hicks is the lone returnee who had a collegiate kickoff return last year. Stinson, Nicholas, Hicks and Ester are among the others who will be battling for KOR duties. Mike Komor, who had handled most of the long snapping duties for the last 32 games, graduated last December. Brant is the leading candidate for long snapping in punting situations, while veteran tight end Aaron Weston is slated to handle long snapping for PATs and fi eld goals. 2015 OUTLOOK

Their creative approach has expanded opportunities not just in football and basketball, but for a variety of sports (women’s basketball and softball) and special programming (Winters on Wednesday). This familiarity with a major Detroit media presence and access for our fan base is exceptional. Chris MacCourtney has advanced this relationship that has enhanced both the University and the City and we appreciate that association.” The 2015 campaign will be the 14th season WSU football and basketball games have been aired on 1400 AM and contests are also available through the Internet at wdtkam.com and on 92.7 FM.

His afternoon radio sports talk show originates from Grand Rapids, Michigan. He also serves as the play-by-play announcer for the Plymouth Whalers. Former Warrior tailback and kick returner Josh Renel will again be joining Baligian in the booth. Renel provided color commentary for one game in 2012 and nearly every game in 2013 and 2014. Renel fi nished his collegiate career with nearly 5,600 all-purpose yards (which ranks second in school history behind Joique Bell) and became only the second player in NCAA Division II Championship Sean Baligian, Play-by-Play Announcer Josh Renel, Color Analyst and former Warrior All-American Sideline reporter Kelsey Meyers interviewing head coach Paul Winters for the WDTK pre-game show.

It was his second career kickoff return for a score. During his 48-game career, he averaged over fi ve yards a carry, nearly 12 yards per punt return and 25.0 yards on 64 kickoff returns. Renel ranks fourth in school history with 2,767 rushing yards, fi fth in rushing touchdowns (28), second in punt return yards (784) and third in kickoff return yards (1,600). “I look forward to working with Wayne State Athletics once again,” stated WDTK General Manager Chris MacCourtney. “Athletic Director Rob Fournier and his team represent the very best that collegiate athletics and our great city have to off er. Their commitment to excellence in athletics, education, and life is the standard by which all collegiate programs should be measured.

  • 2015 FOOTBALL MEDIA GUIDE #WARRIORFB 127 SERVICES AVAILABLE TO WSU STUDENT-ATHLETES The Wayne State Athletic Department has developed a comprehensive approach to academic services for its student-athletes. The department’s goal is to assist student-athletes in pursuit of their designated course of studies and ultimately to achieve graduation. This objective is facilitated by appropriate academic advising, major selection, tutorial assistance and other life skill development and academic support services. A major goal of athletic academic services is to signifi cantly increase the department’s graduation rate over the next fi ve years and to continually emphasize the success of WSU’s student-athletes in the community. Part of the initiative already has been realized by the department’s annual Spring Academic Recognition Luncheon that honors student-athletes with a 3.5 or better term grade point average.

  • 2015 FOOTBALL MEDIA GUIDE WSUATHLETICS.COM68 GLIAC HISTORY The Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC), founded in 1972, has been a leader in the advancement and promotion of intercollegiate athletics for men and women for 40 years. The charter members of the GLIAC were Ferris State University, Grand Valley State University, Lake Superior State University, Northwood University (then Institute), and Saginaw Valley State University. Expansion of the GLIAC began immediately with the addition of Oakland University in 1974. Hillsdale College, Northern Michigan University, and Wayne State University were accepted as members in 1975. In 1977, the conference lost its fi rst member when Northern Michigan withdrew. Michigan Technological University fi lled the vacancy when it became a member in 1980. After the 1986-87 season, Northwood left the conference and was replaced by Northern Michigan. Northwood rejoined the conference in 1992. After the 1989 season, the conference dropped football as a sponsored sport. The conference schools sponsoring football joined the members of the Heartland Collegiate Conference in forming the football-only Midwest Intercollegiate Football Conference (MIFC), which began play in 1990. After nine years as one of the premier conferences in Division II football, the MIFC merged as part of GLIAC on July 1, 1999. With the merger, the University of Indianapolis became an associate member as a football-only school. The GLIAC entered a new era in the 1995-96 school year. Prior to that time, all GLIAC member institutions were located in the state of Michigan. On Dec. 14, 1994, membership was off ered to Ashland University of Ashland, Ohio, and Gannon University and Mercyhurst College, both located in Erie, Pennsylvania. All three schools began their membership July 1, 1995. On July 1, 1997, membership was granted to The University of Findlay, located in Findlay, Ohio. UF replaced Oakland University, which withdrew from the conference after the 1996-97 season as it moved to NCAA Division I status. The GLIAC membership changed again when Tiffi n University of Ohio joined the conference in the 2008-09 academic year. Tiffi n was off ered membership on June 20, 2007. The addition of Tiffi n left the GLIAC with 12 full-time members as Gannon and Mercyhurst moved to the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference after the 2007-08 season. The GLIAC entered a new era during the 2009-10 academic year. Commissioner Tom Brown, who had presided over the league for 17 years, retried on June 30, 2009. The longest serving commissioner in the history of the GLIAC, Brown expanded the conference from 10 full members to 14 full members and two associate members. Also under his leadership, the conference has grown to off ering championships in 21 sports while rising to prominence on the national level as GLIAC teams and student-athletes have achieved success both in the classroom and on the fi elds of play. The Conference expanded on July 1, 2010 when Lake Erie College of Painesville, Ohio, and Ohio Dominican University, located in Columbus, joined the GLIAC. The League expanded further expand on July 1, 2012 when Malone University and Walsh University, both located in the Canton, Ohio area, became the 15th and 16th GLIAC members. The policy-making body of the GLIAC is the Management Council, which is comprised of three representatives from each member institution – its director of athletics, faculty athletics representative and senior woman administrator. The presidency of the GLIAC Management Council is rotated alphabetically by school, with Dave Marsh, Director of Athletics at Northwood University, serving as GLIAC President in 2015-16. Dr. Keith A. Pretty, President of Northwood University, will serve as the chairperson of the GLIAC Presidents Council this year. The GLIAC made history when it hired Dell Robinson as Commissioner. Robinson became the fi rst ethnic minority to serve as D-II commissioner of a non-historically black college or university conference when he began his duties on July 1, 2009. Assisting Robinson are: Jeff Ligney, Assoc. Commissioner, Danielle Harris, Asst. Commissioner & SWA for Compliance/Championships; Chris Roekle Director of Strategic Communications; Mike McCann, Supervisor of Football Offi cials; Kim Vieira, Supervisor of Soccer Offi cials; Jeanne Skinner, Supervisor of Volleyball Offi cials; Rob Doss, Supervisor of Women’s Basketball Offi cials; Bill Ek, Supervisor of Men’s Basketball Offi cials; Linda Strapp, Supervisor of Women’s lacrosse offi cials; Bill Gomoluch Supervisor of Softball Umpires, and Rich Fetchiet, Assignor of Baseball Umpires.

GAME RECAP: Wayne State recorded its 10th consecutive Homecoming victory by dispatching Northwood 45-27. It took the Warriors just 2:22 to grab a 7-0 advantage on a fi ve-play, 58-yard drive set up by a 37-yard kickoff return from Val Showers. On WSU’s second play, Carl Roscoe connected on a 36-yard pass play with Brandon Tinsley. On a second-and-goal, Doug Griffi n went up the middle for two yards and his fi rst touchdown of the season. On Wayne State’s ensuing drive, Roscoe was intercepted and on the very next play, NU’s Mark Morris teamed up with Theron Wilson on a 31-yard touchdown pass to knot the game at 7-7. The Warriors put together a 14-play drive covering 75 yards that began following the Timberwolves kickoff . WSU recorded fi ve fi rst downs with the longest play being a 10-yard run by Griffi n on second-and-nine. Griffi n capped off the scoring drive with a fi ve-yard run on the fi rst play of the second quarter. On Northwood’s third play, Morris was sacked by Justice Akuezue who also forced a fumble that was recovered by Sam Sillmon at the Timberwolves 35. Roscoe completed a 34-yard sideline pass to Desmond Martin on the fi rst play, and after Martin was stopped for no gain, Griffi n notched a career-high third rushing touchdown on the very next play. Just past the midpoint of the second stanza, WSU took possession following an NU punt. Griffi n gained 15 yards on fi rst down, while Martin added 18 yards on four carries sandwiched around another Griffi n rushing attempt. With a third-and-fi ve at the Northwood 29, Jay Hayes gained six yards for a fi rst down, then scampered 23 yards for his fi rst career rushing touchdown. Following another NU punt, Wayne State drove 45 yards in seven plays with Roscoe completing all fi ve pass attempts for 50 yards. Big receptions came from Michael Johnson for 19 yards, and Tinsley for 14 yards. With the clock winding down, Paul Graham made good on a 37-yard fi eld goal attempt. Johnson extended his touchdown receiving streak to four games by hauling in a 29-yard pass from Roscoe. Nores Fradi led the Warrior defense with nine solo tackles including three for loss along with a pass break-up.

The Warriors drove 61 yards on the game’s opening drive leading to a 21-yard fi eld goal by Paul Graham. After the WSU defense forced a three-and-out, a third down pass from Carl Roscoe was intercepted by Daniel Tepe, who returned it 29 yards to the Warrior eight. Two plays later Malone had a 6-3 advantage after the two-point conversion rush failed. Another interception on the ensuing drive, preceded the Wayne State defense stopping the Pioneers. For the third consecutive drive, the Warriors had a turnover (a fumble by Doug Griffi n) but the defense re-grouped with Anthony DeDamos forcing a fumble inside the fi ve, with Ryan Hankins making the recovery. The fi rst period didn’t end any better for WSU as a snap in shotgun formation went over Roscoe’s head with the ball ending up out of the back of the end zone. The safety pushed Malone’s lead to 8-3. The Pioneers went 48 yards in three plays following the free kick with Brandyn Eckhart completing a four-yard touchdown pass to Ronnie Beers. The Warrior off ense responded on its fi rst possession of the second stanza with a 62-yard drive on nine plays. Desmond Martin had six carries for 49 yards on the scoring drive which pulled the Wayne State within 15-10. Neither team was able to score the rest of the half. WSU held a 246-133 edge in total off ense during the fi rst 30 minutes but four turnovers plus a safety contributed to the fi ve point defi cit. Wayne State’s defense forced a three-and-out to start the second half, with the Warrior off ense putting together a nine-play, 64-yard drive to regain the lead at 18-15. On a third-and-six, Roscoe completed a 29-yard scoring toss to Michael Johnson, who had three catches for 51 yards on the drive. Griffi n scored on a two-point conversion rush. The WSU defense stopped the Pioneers on a fourth-and-four from the WSU 35. Later in the third quarter, Wayne State’s defense forced another three-and-out and the Warrior off ense responded with 41-yard scoring drive that took seven plays and concluded on a three-yard touchdown jaunt by Martin. On Malone’s ensuing drive, Wayne State forced a fumble that was recovered at the Pioneer three. Martin took a handoff on the next play and scored his third touchdown of the game. Later Ron Brant, playing less than 30 minutes from his hometown, returned a Malone punt 34 yards setting up the WSU off ense in the red zone. Romello Brown, making his collegiate debut, totaled 18 yards on two rushing attempts to score his fi rst collegiate touchdown to complete the scoring. Zak Bielecki had a game-best 10 tackles, and the Warrior defense totaled four sacks.

GAME RECAP: Wayne State rebounded from a last play setback nine days ago with a solid 14-point fourth quarter to upend No. 13 Carson Newman by a 41-31 margin. The Warriors entered the contest having suff ered seven consecutive losses since starting the 2013 season at 3-2. Desmond Martin set a career-high with 235 rushing yards, the 13th highest total in school history and his total was the second-highest mark ever allowed by the Eagles. Michael Johnson recorded game-high totals of fi ve receptions for 65 yards along with a late second quarter touchdown which gave the Warriors the lead at intermission. Val Showers eclipsed the school record for kickoff return yards in game with 191 yards including an 87-yard return for a touchdown just moments after CNU had knotted the game at 10. The previous mark of 177 was set by Tom Badalamenti in 1985 vs. Ferris State. Despite totaling just three solo tackles, Gerren DuHart had three pass break-ups all coming at key moments in the contest. It was a back-and-forth contest that was tied at 7, 10, 17 and 24 before Wayne State kicker Paul Graham connected on his second fi eld goal giving the Warriors a 27-24 advantage just past the midpoint of the third quarter. Less than two minutes later, Carson Newman took its fi rst lead of the night as running back Andy Hibbett scored his fourth touchdown of the game on a 57-yard pass play after tallying his fi rst three scores on runs of 76, 18 and 1 yards. After the Warriors went three-and-out, WSU’s defense allowed a couple of fi rst downs but forced a punt that was returned 25 yards by Ron Brant, the longest punt return by Wayne State since 2011. The Warriors regained the lead with a six-play, 55-yard drive culminating in a six-yard scamper by Martin, his second TD run of the game. Once again, the WSU defense bent but did not break allowing three fi rst downs but forcing another punt by the Eagles which went for a touchback. The Wayne State off ense sealed the victory with a seven-play, 80-yard drive that included four fi rst downs. Ethan Walsh had an 11-yard reception on a second-and-eight, and Johnson later gained 22 yards on a jet sweep. Martin fi nished off the drive with a six-yard touchdown run with 3:13 remaining. Marcell Jones recorded a game-high 10 tackles to lead the Wayne State defense. 2014 GAME SUMMARIES/GAMES 1-4 GAME 1 - SEPT. 4 MICHIGAN TECH 18, AT WSU 17 Michigan Tech 3 3 3 9 - 18 Wayne State 10 0 0 7 - 17 MTU - Mead 23 yd fi eld goal, 6:14, 1st qtr.

GAME RECAP: Wayne State allowed a 25-yard fi eld goal on the game’s fi nal play to Michigan Tech’s Garrett Mead, his fourth fi eld goal of the contest, to fall 18-17 to the Huskies in the season opener. After Mead connected on a 23-yard fi eld goal to conclude the game’s fi rst drive, the Warriors responded with a three-play, 69 yard drive culminating in a 63-yard touchdown pass from Carl Roscoe to Michael Johnson on a third-and-four play. Following an MTU punt, WSU went 78 yards with Paul Graham converting a 24-yard fi eld goal try for his fi rst collegiate three pointer. The big play of the drive was a 58-yard reception by Desmond Martin. Following another Huskie punt that was downed at the WSU one-yard line early in the second quarter, the game was delayed 58 minutes due to inclement weather. A three- and-out for WSU led to another Mead fi eld goal to cut the Warrior lead to 10-6 with 7:14 left before intermission. Neither team was able to score the rest of the fi rst half. WSU led 170-153 in total off ense through 30 minutes despite the Huskies holding a 21:27 to 8:33 edge in time of possession. Wayne State garnered a pair of fi rst downs to start the second half but the drive ended with a punt. Michigan Tech drove 83 yards in nine plays with Mead connecting from 21 yards on a fourth-and-goal. The third period ended with Wayne State holding a slim 10-9 advantage. A Warrior drive that carried over into the fourth quarter concluded with another touchdown toss from Roscoe to Johnson, this one from seven yards on a third-and-goal. Graham’s PAT increased WSU’s lead to 17-9 with 11:02 left. Wayne State’s defense held on downs, before a bad exchange led to a lost fumble near midfi eld. MTU capitalized with a four-play, 47-yard scoring drive with Tyler Scarlett completing a 16-yard screen pass for a touchdown to Charlie Leffi ngwell. Leffi ngwell’s two-point conversion run came up just short on a nice tackle by Wayne State’s Valorian Cunningham maintaining WSU’s two-point edge at 17-15 with 5:36 left. The Warriors had an eight-play drive which used up 3:36 on the clock, but the Huskies had exactly two minutes left and one timeout. Scarlett engineered a 14-play drive covering 69 yards leading to Mead’s 25-yard fi eld goal attempt on the game’s fi nal play. Martin had a game-best 155 all-purpose yards. Roscoe set a career-high with 239 passing yards. Zak Bielecki totaled a game-high 16 tackles (13 solo, 3 assisted) including one for loss and a pass break-up. Nores Fradi had three tackles for loss among his nine solo stops.

The 52 points scored by the Warriors were the most since a 55-0 win versus Tiffi n on Sept. 20, 2011. On the game’s opening drive, Walsh drove inside the Wayne State 40 but a fake punt was snuff ed out by Marcell Jones.

Carl Roscoe found Trent Brodbeck for 13 yards, then Desmond Martin gained the fi nal two yards. Walsh again drove inside the Warrior 40, but Paul Kempe was hurried on fourth down by Nores Fradi resulting in an incomplete pass. On the ninth play of the ensuing drive, Paul Graham converted his 10th consecutive fi eld goal. Following a three-and-out for Walsh, the Wayne State off ense drove 71 yards in nine plays with Michael Johnson hauling in a 43-yard touchdown pass from Roscoe on third-and-16. Johnson also had a 17-yard catch on a third-and-six, while Roscoe scrambled for 13 yards on a third-and-10. On the third play from scrimmage for Walsh, Fradi again put the pressure on Kempe and his pass was intercepted by James Howard for WSU’s fi rst interception of the season.

GAME RECAP: Wayne State suff ered its third consecutive setback on a fi eld goal in the fi nal 30 seconds. After each team turned the ball over on its initial possession, the Warrior defense forced a three-and- out and the off ense went 66 yards in eight plays with Desmond Martin scoring. The Wildcats answered with a 78-yard drive culminating in a 20-yard fi eld goal. Wayne State’s next drive concluded with a career- long 47-yard fi eld goal by Paul Graham. The WSU defense stopped a fourth down pass and the off ense responded with an eight-play drive as Graham made a 31-yard fi eld goal. The Wildcats scored their fi rst touchdown on a 10-play, 58-yard drive. Wayne State moved down the fi eld with the help of a 15-yard pass interference penalty plus a 16-yard reception by Trent Brodbeck on a third-and-13. Carl Roscoe found Jamel Hicks over the middle and Hicks gained plenty of yards after the catch to complete a 37-yard scoring play. On the fi rst play from scrimmage after intermission, Val Showers went 33 yards on a reverse, but WSU had to settle for a 44-yard fi eld goal by Graham. NMU responded with a 62-yard scoring drive. The Warriors went three-and-out, and Austin Young returned the punt for a TD to give the hosts a 24-23 lead. Wayne State was unable to convert a fourth down play following the kickoff , but the defense stepped up and stopped a fourth down run. A halfback option pass on the next play was intercepted by NMU leading to a 22-yard fi eld goal. The Warriors were able to regain the lead at 30-27 as Michael Johnson scored on a nine-yard reception on a third-and-seven play. The Wildcats knotted the game at 30 four plays after an 84-yard kickoff return by Marcus Tucker. Wayne State drove into NMU territory but a fake punt pass was incomplete leading to a 12-play Wildcat drive concluding in a fi eld goal by Ryan Laberge. WSU’s second down pass attempt went off the hands of a Warrior receiver into the hands of a Wildcat. Nores Fradi had a game-high 3.5 tackles for loss as did Anthony DeDamos.

GAME RECAP: Wayne State held Grand Valley State to just 17 points, tying the fewest points scored by the Lakers this season but the Warrior off ense only generated a fi eld goal. On the opening drive of the game, Carl Roscoe eluded the rush and completed a 33-yard pass to Trent Brodbeck but the play was negated due to a holding penalty. This drive as well as the next two possessions ended with a punt. GVSU drove 48 yards in six plays with Joe Warner catching a fi ve-yard touchdown pass from Heath Parling for the game’s fi rst score. The Warrior off ense put together a six-play drive following a 58-yard kickoff return by Val Showers, but Doug Griffi n fumbled on his fi fth carry of the drive on a fi rst-and-goal play. Late in the fi rst period, a 44-yard punt by Paul Graham had Grand Valley State starting a drive at its own 29. The Lakers went 71 yards in nine plays with Chris Robinson scoring on a one-yard plunge on third-and-goal. On the fi rst drive of the second half, the Warrior defense allowed a pair of fi rst downs, but a 10-yard sack by Anthony DeDamos on GVSU’s fi rst play in WSU territory preceded an incomplete pass and another sack. The Laker punt was partially blocked with Jamel Hicks picking the ball up at the Laker 38 and returning it 14 yards. After two runs by Desmond Martin, Griffi n completed a seven-yard pass to Brodbeck for a fi rst down. Griffi n fumbled on third down with the Lakers recovering. The Wayne State defense rose to the occasion limiting Grand Valley State to one fi rst down before forcing another punt. The Warriors took over at their own 49 with Roscoe connecting on back-to-back plays with Michael Johnson for 25 and 15 yards, respectively setting up a fi rst-and-10 from the GVSU 11. Three straight incomplete passes led to a 28-yard fi eld goal by Graham, his sixth consecutive made three-pointer. Following the kickoff and along with a Laker holding penalty, Grand Valley State started on its own 5-yard line. GVSU drove 80 yards in 12 plays with Joel Schipper making a 32-yard fi eld goal attempt early in the fourth period. Neither team was able to score in the fi nal 13 minutes. The teams combined for just 114 rushing yards (85 for GVSU and 29 for WSU). The Lakers held a 256-103 advantage in passing yardage. The Warriors lost the turnover battle 5-1 and were just 1-of-3 in the red zone. Roscoe was 11-of-23 with two interceptions, although one came on the fi nal play of the game. Parling completed 17-of-28 passes for 256 yards but was sacked four times. Johnson had a game-high six receptions for a team-best 49 yards. Jamie Potts totaled a game-high 81 receiving yards on four catches. Nores Fradi recorded a game-high 14 tackles and added to his GLIAC leading total of tackles for loss with another 2.5 TFL. Zak Bielecki contributed 13 tackles, while Jake Carrizales, who entered the game leading the GLIAC in sacks, assisted on three sacks for minus 12 yards vs. the Lakers. The Warrior defense recorded nine tackles for loss in the contest with eight diff erent players being a part of the TFLs.

Following a missed 38-yard TU fi eld goal attempt, Wayne State drove 79 yards in nine plays to grab a 7-6 halftime advantage. The Warriors accumulated fi ve of their eight fi rst half fi rst downs on the scoring drive. Carl Roscoe had a 30-yard completion to Jamel Hicks allowing WSU to score the go- ahead touchdown two plays later. Tiffi n returned the second half kickoff a total of 34 yards including a reverse. On the fi rst play from scrimmage, TU had a 56-yard touchdown reception. The Dragons tried some trickery on the PAT but a pitchout from the center to Jerry Brown was mishandled with Nores Fradi picking up the ball at the WSU 11. Fradi returned the ball to the Warrior 38 before giving a lateral to Gerren DuHart who took it the fi nal 62 yards for Wayne State’s fi rst defensive extra point in nearly 10 years (Earl Carruthers scored a defensive extra point at Michigan Tech on October 9, 2004). On the ensuing possession with WSU trailing 12-9, the Warriors drove across midfi eld but a fi ve-yard completion on a third-and-six preceded a no gain rush on fourth down. Tiffi n proceeded to drive 58 yards in fi ve plays to increase its lead to 19-9. After an exchange of punts, Wayne State turned it over on downs following three consecutive incomplete deep passes. However, on the very next play, a shotgun snap was recovered by Sam Sillmon at the Dragon 26. Doug Griffi n gained eight yards on fi rst down, and following a dropped pass, Desmond Martin garnered the fi rst down. On the fi rst play of the fourth quarter, Griffi n went 15 yards for the touchdown. The Warrior defense forced a three-and-out, but a short punt into the wind was mishandled by the WSU returner and the Dragons recovered at the WSU 49. Eight plays later the visitors had a 26-16 lead. Wayne State responded with a seven-play, 59-yard scoring drive pulling within three (26-23) with 6:15 remaining. Griffi n carried the ball fi ve times on the drive for 56 yards going untouched for the fi nal 15 yards. WSU’s defense rose to the occasion and forced a three-and-out, but the Warrior off ense took a sack on the fi rst play and had to punt. Once again the defense answered by forcing the Dragons into minus nine yards on three plays and into another punt. However, Wayne State’s off ense had two incomplete passes, a sack and an incomplete pass to turn the ball over on downs with 1:16 remaining. 2014 GAME SUMMARIES/GAMES 5-8

GAME RECAP: Wayne State won all three phases of the game at Findlay in posting a 43-10 triumph. Desmond Martin broke off a 48- yard run on the second play of the game, but after a couple of negative plays, the Warrior punt was downed at the UF 11. On Findlay’s fi rst play, Verlon Reed scrambled after getting a low shotgun snap and was forced out of bounds with the ball not coming completely outside the goal line for a safety. Val Showers returned the free kick 21 yards to the Warrior 48. Six consecutive carries by Martin netted 35 yards, and even with an 11-yard completion from Carl Roscoe to Michael Johnson on third-and-14, WSU had to settle for a 28-yard fi eld goal from Paul Graham. The Oilers gained four yards on their fi rst series of the second quarter, then Dustin Carlin blocked the punt with Jay Hayes picking up the ball and going in for a touchdown. On Findlay’s ensuring drive, Zak Bielecki picked off a third down pass for his fi rst career interception. The Warriors drove 47 yards in seven plays with Graham converting a 41-yard fi eld goal. It took UF just six plays to get on the scoreboard as Chauncey Bridges scampered 50 yards on a third-and-two. Wayne State began the second half with an onside kick that Majd Khytaz recovered, however the Warriors were penalized for an illegal block. On the next play, Khytaz’s short kickoff was mishandled with Brook Higgins recovering. Three straight running plays, two by Martin sandwiched around a 25-yard gain for Doug Griffi n, concluded with Martin’s touchdown run. Later in the period, Marcell Jones made a one-hand interception and took it back 26 yards for WSU’s fi rst pick six since Gerren DuHart went 82 yards against Hillsdale on Oct. 6, 2012. On Findlay’s last drive of the third quarter, Bielecki recorded his second interception, giving the Warriors great fi eld position at the UF 47. WSU used 5:11 on the clock and scored on the ninth play. Sean Guinane, in his fi rst signifi cant playing time of the season, had two completions on the drive for 15 yards, both to Johnson with Martin carrying the ball the other seven plays. Defensively for Wayne State, Nores Fradi had a team-best 11 tackles including 3.5 sacks and a forced fumble. Jones contributed seven tackles (3-4) plus his pick six. James Howard had four solo tackles and two pass break-ups in his fi rst career start.

Despite the fi nal score, it was the Warrior defense that made plays and held the Storm off ense 175 yards below their season average. Meanwhile, the WSU off ense set a season-best with 574 yards including 349 on the ground. Desmond Martin ran for a career-high 292 yards while Sean Guinane was 15-for-25 for a career-best 225 yards and two touchdowns in just his fourth career start. Michael Johnson collected his fourth 100-yard receiving game of the season with Jamel Hicks posting his fi rst career 100-yard game. Zak Bielecki led the defense with 12 tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss and an interception. Nores Fradi totaled 11 tackles including a sack and another 1.5 tackles for loss. WSU started the scoring just 2:11 into the contest on a 53-yard jaunt by Martin. After a three-and-out by Lake Erie, the Warriors drove 80 yards and on play 13 Graham converted his fi rst fi eld goal of the afternoon. Wayne State held a 192-38 edge in total off ense after the opening stanza. The Storm ended the next WSU drive with an interception and scored fi ve plays later as the GLIAC’s leading rusher Anthony Bilal went in from 38 yards out. Bilal was held more than 40 yards below his per game rushing average. The Warriors responded with an eight-play drive that only needed 37 yards following a 15-yard penalty on the Storm. The Guinane to Hicks combo recorded the TD on a third-and-six pass completion. Lake Erie pulled within three on the strength of a 17-play, 70-yard drive. On the last possession of the fi rst half, Guinane engineered a 61-yard drive in 2:54 concluding with a fi eld goal by Graham. The fi rst seven drives of the second half (4 by LEC, 3 by WSU) combined did not produce a fi rst down by running or passing. Finally on drive eight, the Warriors went 81 yards in only fi ve plays. Martin had a two-yard TD run, on the play following a 57-yard scamper. Lake Erie’s Bilal scored on a 12-yard run. The Warriors restored their 12-point lead with Martin scoring. Once again the Storm were able to chip away at the WSU advantage as Mitchel Hokavar tossed a TD pass. The Wayne State off ense answered with a 83-yard touchdown drive in only six plays. Martin gained 47 yards on the fi rst three plays, before Jay Hayes totaled 36 yards on the next three plays which included a 25-yard touchdown run.

GAME RECAP: The Warriors rallied for 13 fourth quarter points in recording a 20-13 triumph. Hillsdale scored on the game’s opening possession driving 54 yards in nine plays with Steven Mette converting a 43-yard fi eld goal attempt. WSU had two fi rst downs on the ensuing drive but a fourth down pass completion was ruled down with the receivers knee touching the ground on the reception. After a three-and-out by the Chargers, the Warrior off ense went 73 yards in 10 plays with Jay Hayes scoring on a one-yard plunge on the second play of the second quarter. The teams traded punts before HC had a 8:05 drive which covered 71 yards in 17 plays concluding on a four-yard touchdown pass from Mark LaPrairie to Mike Carter on a third-and-goal with just 51 seconds remaining before intermission. Mette’s PAT gave the visitors a 10-7 advantage. A fumble on WSU’s second play from scrimmage put the Chargers in business at their own 47. After two completions for 35 yards followed by an incompletion, Mette connected on a 35-yard fi eld goal attempt on the fi nal play of the fi rst half giving Hillsdale a 13-7 lead at intermission. The Wayne State defense was huge in the second half limiting HC to 89 yards in 31 plays and if you take into account an 85-yard interception return by Anthony DeDamos, the “positive” yardage is even less. DeDamos’ return was the longest non-scoring interception return in school history eclipsing an 89-year-old school mark set on October 4, 1925, by George Lester (75 yard return) against Ferris State. On the fi rst drive of the third quarter, Graham missed his fi rst collegiate fi eld goal attempt, after making 14 straight. The next four drives (two from each team) ended in punts with only three combined fi rst downs for the two squads. Hillsdale went 54 yards in 10 plays and on a third-and-goal from the WSU seven, LaPrairie was intercepted by DeDamos at the four. His return went all the way to the Hillsdale 11 before he was brought down. An unsportsmanlike conduct penalty on WSU pushed the ball back to the HC 26. Carl Roscoe completed a six-yard pass to Michael Johnson on a third-and-four and three plays later Roscoe scrambled for 12 yards for his fi rst collegiate rushing touchdown on a third-and-eight play. Forcing the Chargers to use all three timeouts after running plays, Wayne State’s third holder of the season Jamel Hicks took the snap on a fi eld goal attempt and rushed untouched down the right side for a 20-yard touchdown with 1:30 remaining in the game. Graham’s consecutive PAT streak ended at 42 as his attempt was blocked. Zak Bielecki and DeDamos tied for game-high tackle honors with 12 each. Fradi fi nished with nine tackles (4-5) including three for loss, which secured the national lead in tackles for loss per game. 2014 GAME SUMMARIES/GAMES 9-11 INDIVIDUAL GAME HIGHS Rushes ............ 39-Desmond Martin at Lake Erie (Nov 08) Yards Rushing 292-Desmond Martin at Lake Erie (Nov 08) TD Rushes .......... 3-Desmond Martin vs. Carson-Newman (Sep 13) ...........................3-Desmond Martin at Malone (Sep 20) ............................3-Doug Griffi n vs Northwood (Sep 27) ........................ 3-Desmond Martin at Lake Erie (Nov 08) Long Rush ........ 62-Desmond Martin vs. Carson-Newman (Sep 13) Pass attempts ............... 30-Carl Roscoe at Northern Michigan (Oct 18) Pass completions . 15-Sean Guinane at Lake Erie (Nov 08) Yards Passing ............. 241-Carl Roscoe at Northern Michigan (Oct 18) TD Passes ....................... 3-Carl Roscoe vs. Walsh (Oct 25) Long Pass ..................... 73-Carl Roscoe vs. Walsh (Oct 25) Receptions ...........9-Michael Johnson at Findlay (Nov 01) ........................ 9-Michael Johnson at Lake Erie (Nov 08) Yards Receiving . 154-Michael Johnson vs. Walsh (Oct 25) TD Receptions ................ 2-Michael Johnson vs. Michigan Tech (Sep 4) ............................ 2-Michael Johnson vs. Walsh (Oct 25) Long Reception .......... 73-Val Showers vs. Walsh (Oct 25) Field Goals 3-Paul Graham at Northern Michigan (Oct 18) Long Field Goal ............. 47-Paul Graham at Northern Michigan (Oct 18) Punts ........................ 7-Paul Graham at Findlay (Nov 01) Punting Avg ......... 42.5-Paul Graham at Malone (Sep 20) Long Punt ............... 55-Paul Graham at Findlay (Nov 01) Punts inside 20 ......... 5-Paul Graham at Findlay (Nov 01) Long Punt Return ........ 34-Ron Brant at Malone (Sep 20) Long Kickoff Return ................ 87-Val Showers vs. Carson-Newman (Sep 13) Tackles ............ 16-Zak Bielecki vs. Michigan Tech (Sep 4) Sacks ........................ 3.5-Nores Fradi at Findlay (Nov 01) Tackles For Loss -- (Four times by three individuals): ... 3.5-Anthony DeDamos at Northern Michigan (Oct 18) .............. 3.5-Nores Fradi at Northern Michigan (Oct 18) ................................ 3.5-Nores Fradi at Findlay (Nov 01) ............................ 3.5-Zak Bielecki at Lake Erie (Nov 08) Interceptions ...............2-Zak Bielecki at Findlay (Nov 01) 2014 TEAM GAME HIGHS Rushes ................................... 53 vs. Northwood (Sep 27) Yards Rushing .......................... 349 at Lake Erie (Nov 08) Yards Per Rush ............. 7.0 vs. Carson-Newman (Sep 13) TD Rushes ................................ 5 vs. Northwood (Sep 27) Pass attempts .............. 33 at Northern Michigan (Oct 18) Pass completions .............. 15 at Northern Mich.

In 1974, Hillsdale joined the league as the fourth football team. The conference expanded again in 1975 when Saginaw Valley State started a football program and Wayne State joined the league. The number of GLIAC football teams grew to seven in 1980 when Michigan Tech was added, though the Huskies left the league after the 1985 season. In 1987, Northwood left the league and was replaced by Northern Michigan. After the 1989 season, the GLIAC dropped football as a sponsored sport. The six conference schools sponsoring football, Ferris State, Grand Valley State, Hillsdale, Northern Michigan, Saginaw Valley State, and Wayne State, joined the fi ve members of the Heartland Collegiate Conference, Ashland, Butler, Indianapolis, St. Joseph’s, and Valparaiso, in forming the football-only Midwest Intercollegiate Football Conference (MIFC), which began play in 1990. The MIFC would change again for the 1993 season as two teams would leave and two teams would join. Butler and Valparaiso left the conference, but Northwood rejoined and the College of St. Francis (Ill.) was added. The league grew to 12 teams in 1994 with the addition of Michigan Tech and stayed at 12 teams until St. Joseph’s left after the 1995 season. In 1998, the league expanded to 14 teams with the additions of Findlay, Mercyhurst, and Westminster, but would drop back to 13 teams with the departure of St. Francis after the season. Westminster departed after the 1999 season, leaving 12 teams. Gannon was added before the 2004 season, giving the league a 13-team roster. After nine years of existence as one of the premier conferences in Division II football, the MIFC merged as part of GLIAC on July 1, 1999. The GLIAC has earned the reputation as one of the toughest and deepest conferences in Division II with a strong postseason history. Three GLIAC teams made National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) playoff appearances. Grand Valley State made it to the national semifi nals in 1978. Saginaw Valley State made three trips to the NAIA playoff s (1979, 1983, 1984), posting a 2-3 mark. Hillsdale earned fi ve NAIA postseason berths as a member of the GLIAC (1981, 1982, 1985, 1986, 1988), taking home the championship in 1985. The fi rst team to represent the GLIAC in the Division II playoff s was Northern Michigan in 1987. The Wildcats made the D-II semifi nals that season. Grand Valley State started a three-year postseason run in 1989, though the Lakers failed to get out of the fi rst round. Butler joined GVSU in the D-II playoff s in 1991, marking the fi rst year the league had two teams participate in postseason play. Butler fell to the eventual national champion, Pittsburg State in the fi rst round. The 1992 Division II playoff s saw the fi rst GLIAC team make it past the opening round in league history. Ferris State posted a fi rst-round win over Edinboro before falling to New Haven in the quarterfi nals. The 1992 season marked the beginning of a fi ve-year playoff run for the Bulldogs, with their best performance coming in 1995 after a D-II semifi nal appearance. Grand Valley State made its fourth and fi fth D-II postseason trips in 1994 and 1998, respectively. Ashland made its fi rst appearance in the playoff s as a member of the GLIAC in 1997. After being shut out of the playoff s in 1999, the GLIAC posted two teams in the 2000 tournament as Northwood and Saginaw Valley State each made their fi rst D-II postseason appearances. The Timberwolves claimed a fi rst-round victory over Indiana (Pa.) before falling to Bloomsburg in the quarterfi nals. The 2001 season was historic for the league as two teams made it through the fi rst round of the playoff s. Grand Valley State and Saginaw Valley State each posted opening-round wins and faced each other in the national quarterfi nals. The Lakers won a shoot-out in Allendale, 33-30, and cruised to a semifi nal win over Catawba. GVSU advanced to the championship game before falling to North Dakota, 17-14. The Lakers redeemed themselves in 2002 by claiming the league’s fi rst Division II football national championship. Grand Valley State defeated Valdosta State in the fi nals, 31-24. GVSU would repeat as national champions in 2003. The Lakers knocked off North Dakota in that championship game, 10-3. GLIAC co-champions Michigan Tech and Northwood, along with Grand Valley State, would earn playoff berths in 2004. GVSU fell in the regional fi nals to North Dakota, 19-15. The 2005 season saw more postseason success for the GLIAC. GVSU, SVSU, and Northwood each gained postseason entrance. The Lakers and Cardinals battled for the Northwest Region title, but GVSU advanced, 24-17, and went on to defeat NW Missouri State, 21-17, in the Division II title game. In 2006 both Northwood and Grand Valley State earned postseason berths. The Lakers ran the table and meet NW Missouri State in the fi nals, claiming a 17-14 victory and winning the leagues’ fourth D-II Championship. GVSU and Ashland earned playoff bids in 2007 and 2008, while 2009 saw Grand Valley State, Hillsdale, and Saginaw Valley State in the D-II postseason. GVSU made an impressive run to the fi nal before falling to NW Missouri State, 30-23. In 2010, GVSU and Hillsdale earned D-II playoff berths with the Lakers falling in the Super Region III Semifi nals. 2011 saw Wayne State and SVSU make the postseason with the Warriors making an improbable run to the D-II fi nals before falling to Pittsburgh State, 35-21. WSU won four consecutive road playoff games as the No. 6 seed in Super Region 3 claiming victories at St. Cloud State (48-38) in a blizzard, 38-26 at Nebraska-Kearney, 31-25 at defending national champion Minnesota Duluth, followed by a 21-14 triumph at unbeaten Winston-Salem State in a national semifi nal game televised on ESPN. Ashland represented the Conference in the 2012 playoff s, losing to Midwestern State in the Super Region IV semifi nals, 33-28. The GVSU Lakers once again made a deep run in the 2013 NCAA Playoff s which started with a triumph over GLIAC foe Saginaw Valley State. Ohio Dominican earned a fi rst-round by and made its fi rst appearance in the tournament. The Panthers dropped a heartbreaker in Columbus to West Texas A&M, 34-27. GVSU swaggered all the way to the national semifi nals after taking out CSU-Pueblo on the road 34-30 and knocking off West Texas A&M in Allendale 35-28. Northwest Missouri State used their home fi eld advantage to defeat the Lakers by a 27-13 fi nal score in the D-II semis. After an exciting 2014 regular season, three GLIAC programs qualifi ed for the NCAA D-II Playoff s. Ohio Dominican returned to the playoff s for the second straight season and took down Colorado Mines on the road in impressive fashion to start the postseason, 34-23. Meanwhile, Angelo State stunned Michigan Tech 42-41 in Houghton after a wild second half comeback from ASU bounced the Huskies at home. In the regional semifi nals, Ohio Dominican dissected the unbeaten Ferris State attack and advanced in the back-and-forth contest with a 46-33 victory on the road in Big Rapids. Unfortunately, the ODU run ended in the next round as the Panthers fell behind early and nearly completed a major comeback on the road before falling 31-28 to the eventual national champions, CSU-Pueblo. Though many teams have made history for the GLIAC, the league can also boast upon individual accomplishments. In 2002, GVSU quarterback Curt Anes became the GLIAC’s fi rst Harlon Hill Trophy winner as the Division II Player of the Year. Anes led the Lakers to consecutive championship game appearances, helping GVSU to the national title in 2002. The GLIAC had its second Harlon Hill winner when Wayne State running back Joique Bell claimed the honor in 2009. In 2015, Ferris State quarterback Jason Vander Laan took home the D-II Heisman equivalent after a record-breaking year for the Bulldogs. 2014 GLIAC STANDINGS/GLIAC FOOTBALL HISTORY All-Time GLIAC/MIFC Football W/L Records# Team Games Wins Losses Ties Pct.

  • 2015 FOOTBALL MEDIA GUIDE WSUATHLETICS.COM90 Running back Joique Bell became the fi rst former Wayne State University player to participate in the Senior Bowl. In January of 2010, he rushed for 17 yards on eight carries, but recorded a fi rst down on three of his rushing attempts. Four of his carries came on the North’s initial drive of the game setting up a fi eld goal. Four members of the class of 2014 participated in the All- American Bowl Game at AT&T Stadium in Dallas last December. Defensive linemen Justice Akuezue and Sam Sillmon, along with linebacker Marcell Jones and running back Jay Hayes competed with Sillmon receiving the Jim Marshall Award as the Best Defensive Lineman in the contest. Ed Viverette and Toney Davis, both seniors in 2013, played in the National Bowl Game in Miami, Fla. Davis totaled 94 rushing yards on nine carries with a touchdown, while Viverette made numerous tackles. In January of 2012, off ensive tackle Joe Long played in the 87th East-West Shrine Game®. The Game was held at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. Long played both off ensive tackle and served as a long snapper in the contest. In January of 2011, cornerback Stan Thornton played in the Division II Cactus Bowl. He tallied two tackles and a pass break-up as his Red Storm squad recorded a 28-6 triumph over the Blue Devils. Thornton had a pass break-up of Hillsdale quarterback Troy Weatherhead’s attempt on a third-and-two play on the game’s opening drive. In the Blue Devils’ fi rst drive of the second quarter, Thornton tackled a wide receiver for a fi ve-yard gain on a third-and-six play. He also recorded a solo tackle in the fourth quarter. The Red Storm defense limited the Blue Devils to 4-of-15 on third and fourth down plays during the contest. Thornton’s participation marked the 13th by a Wayne State player in the Division II All-Star game. The Warriors had two seniors from the 2008 campaign participate in post-season bowl games. Both safety Dante Dunn and linebacker Tristan Black played in the East Coast Bowl, while Dunn also saw action in the 2009 Cactus Bowl. Dunn was in on three tackles for the North, while Black made two tackles at the East Coast Bowl. In the Cactus Bowl, Dunn led the East defense with a forced fumble and a fumble recovery and eight tackles, including one for loss. Running back Craig Duppong participated in the 2003 Whataburger Cactus Bowl held in Kingsville, Texas, on the campus of Texas A&M University-Kingsville. Duppong led the East squad in rushing with 33 yards on 12 carries. On his fi rst carry of the game, on a fourth-and-one, Duppong gained three yards. His 11-yard run on the fi rst drive of the second half set up the East’s squad fi rst points. On a third- and-two rush in the fourth quarter, Duppong gained three yards and another fi rst down. In overtime, he had a fi ve-yard carry on a second-and-10 that led to an East fi eld goal and a 27-24 lead. The West squad threw a 35-yard touchdown pass on its fi rst play in the extra session for a 30-27 win. The year before, WSU senior wide receiver Pierre Brown participated in the 2002 Whataburger Cactus Bowl. Brown had four receptions for 42 yards for the East squad. Formerly known as the Snow Bowl, the Cactus Bowl used an East/West format until the 2011 game with teams comprised of Division II Players. Huston Julian played in the 2001 Cactus Bowl following the completion of the 2000 season. “This was just an amazing experience,” said Julian. “It was nice to put on the pads once again and play the game that I love. There was great support from the community for the game and it was an unbelievable atmosphere to be around. It was nice to be a celebrity for a week.” After the end of the 1997 campaign, Tony Hawk and Derek Lindsay both participated in the 1998 contest. The previous year Ken Johnson was selected, while Gary Ruttan played in the 1996 game. Matt Carey and Joe Gough each participated in the 1995 Snow Bowl. The inaugural NCAA Division II All-Star game was held on January 6, 1994, at the FargoDome in Fargo, North Dakota. Wayne State linebacker Tom Beer was one of six players selected from the MIFC to participate in the inaugural Snow Bowl. The East Coast Bowl is an annual college All-Star football game played the Saturday following Thanksgiving at Historic Cameron Field in Petersburg, Va. The game is cosponsored by the City of Petersburg and the National Football Foundation/College Hall of Fame and all revenue generated is used to award a scholarship for a high school senior who plans to play football on the Division I-AA, II or III level.

Programs have been implemented to improve academic performance and retention in order to deliver success in the classroom. During the 2014-2015 academic calendar year nearly 60% of the Wayne State student-athlete body received a 3.0+ Grade Point Average at full time enrollment status. The Wayne State football program had 26 student-athletes receive GLIAC All-Academic team recognition during the 2014 season. Under the direction of head football coach Paul Winters, football student- athletes participate in a daily study table that emphasizes time management, classroom readiness, test taking strategies, tutorial assistance and study group sessions. Dr. Maria Sepulveda of the athletic department supervises the football study table sessions. Football is prevalent in the community through involvement associated with the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee. Two members from each of the 18 Wayne State sports serve on the committee in eff orts to build leadership and a strong relationship with the surrounding community. Joining the entire student-athlete body, the football team assists with fund raising for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, generating resources through canned food and clothing drives, volunteering at local soup kitchens, and mentoring programs. Four members of the 2007 Wayne State University football team were selected for the 2008 NFF Hampshire Honor Society. The announcement was made by the National Football Foundation (NFF) & College Hall of Fame. Selected from WSU were seniors Guye Goodlow, Frank Lietke, Dale Knuth and Kenny Schmidt. The four honorees were the most for any GLIAC school. For the 2008 football season, Wayne State’s Andrew Bates was one of two GLIAC players inducted into the Hampshire Honor Society. The following year both Joe Claiborne and Bruno Shkreli were inducted, while Matt Faulkner received this recognition for the 2010 football campaign. In 2011-12, WSU had the most inductees of any GLIAC school and any college in the State of Michigan with six. Four members of the 2012 senior class received induction into the Hampshire Honor Society with three more from the class of 2013 being added to the list. Last spring, two off ensive linemen in Thom Box and Ben Walker were named to the Hampshire Honor Society. Qualifi cations for membership in the NFF Hampshire Honor Society include: * Being a starter or a signifi cant substitute in one’s last year of eligibility at an accredited NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision, Football Championship Subdivision, Division II, Division III, or an NAIA college or university; * Achieving a 3.2 cumulative grade point average throughout entire course of undergraduate study; and * Meeting all NCAA-mandated progress towards degree requirements. A total of 838 players from 267 schools qualifi ed for membership in the society’s eighth year, marking the highest school participation in the history of the program, which began in 2007. The NFF Hampshire Honor Society capitalizes on the NFF’s current National Scholar-Athlete program, greatly expanding the number of scholar-athletes the NFF can recognize each year and further strengthening the organization’s leadership role in encouraging academic performance by the student-athletes who play football at the more than 700 college and universities nationwide. Jon F. Hanson, the chairman and founder of The Hampshire Companies, provided an endowment to launch the NFF Hampshire Honor Society in 2007. He made the contribution as part of his legacy to the organization after serving as NFF chairman from 1994-2006. Each of the 703 players awarded with membership in this year’s Honor Society will receive a certifi cate commemorating the achievement. Gary Schultz was a 1971 CoSIDA Academic All-American. GUY NAMED TO AFCA GOOD WORKS TEAM The two 11-man teams, a Division I-A team and a combined team from NCAA Football Championship Subdivision, Divisions II, III and the NAIA, honor players for their dedication and commitment to community service. The AFCA has been selecting the Good Works Team since 1997. From 1992-1996, the Good Works Team was chosen by the College Football Association. When the CFA disbanded in 1997, the AFCA began selecting the teams. Alan Guy’s selection in 2007 marked the fi rst time a WSU football player has earned Good Works honors. Alan Guy was a 2007 AFCA Good Works Team Selection. ACADEMIC SUCCESS

  • 2015 FOOTBALL MEDIA GUIDE #WARRIORFB 115 Detroit Junior College played its fi rst football game on October 4, 1918, against Assumption, a 41-0 win at Sandwich. The next three games of the season were played at Goldberg Field. DJC became the Colleges of the City of Detroit (CCD) in 1923, and Wayne University in 1934 in honor of General Anthony Wayne. Wayne became Wayne State University in 1956. Home games were played at University of Detroit from 1944 until 1953 with a few home games at Keyworth Stadium in 1946, 1947 and 1949.
