TIFFIN — Ohio Northern opened the Ohio Athletic Conference portion of its schedule with a 55-27 loss at No. 12-ranked Heidelberg Saturday afternoon at Mayer Field.

The Polar Bears fall to 1-1 overall and 0-1 in OAC play, while the Student Princes improve to 2-0, 1-0.

Northern struck first when sophomore Andrew DiMario connected on a 34-yard field goal attempt with just 1:31 gone in the game.

Senior Zach Runzo set up the score with an interception on the third play of the game.

Later, DiMario hit on a 28-yard field goal with 2:47 left in the half to pull ONU within 27-6.

Northern drove into Heidelberg territory on five of its first six possessions of the first half, but came away with only the two DiMario field goals.

Meanwhile, the Student Princes scored touchdowns on five consecutive possessions and led 34-6 at halftime.

“I thought we played pretty well early on, but just gave up too many big plays,” ONU head coach Dean Paul said. “We were inside their 30-yard line four times in the first half and only got six points. Then they hit some big plays and it got away from us.”

The Polar Bears were led by junior Patrick Angle, who completed 23-of-33 passes for 178 yards and a score.

ONU marched 73 yards in 11 plays on its first possession of the second half and scored on a 14-yard TD pass from Angle to senior Ryan Malone to pull with 34-12 four minutes into the third quarter.

But HU extended its streak of touchdown drives to eight possessions and put the game away in the second half.

Sophomore Connor Devine came off the bench to direct ONU on an 8-play, 81-yard drive. Sophomore Justin Magazine plowed over from 7 yards out for the touchdown and Devine hit sophomore Matt Craven for the 2-point conversion and ONU was within 55-20 with 7:04 left in the game.

He then hit Craven on a 14-yard touchdown pass with 2:06 left in the game to wrap up the scoring.

Heidelberg was led by Michael Mees, who completed 13-of-23 passes for 304 yards and TD passes of 12, 53, 20 and 73 yards.

On the ground, Cartel Brooks rushed nine times for 143 yards and two TDs and Bryan Lacey ran 10 times for 104 yards and a pair of scores for HU.

The Student Princes got on the board on their third possession of the game, marching 84 yards in 13 plays and scoring on a 12-yard pass from Mees to Ethan Kindle.

ONU marched to the HU 27-yard line on its next possession, but turned the ball over on downs.

Brooks busted up the middle and raced 73 yards for a score on the next play from scrimmage and HU led 20-3 with 9:39 left in the half.

HU out-gained ONU 572-373 in total offense.

National Football Foundation launches “Football Matters to Me” Campaign

 

NFF Board Members Jerry Jones and Jeff Immelt help kickoff NFF initiative to highlight the role of football in building leadership and character.

 

IRVING, Texas (Oct. 3, 2013) – The National Football Foundation (NFF) unveiled a new campaign tonight that encourages people to tell why football matters to them. The campaign, called Football Matters to Me, will provide people from border-to-border and coast-to-coast a voice in highlighting the positive impact that football has had on their lives by utilizing social media platforms and the hashtag: #ImAFootballPlayer. The campaign will encourage participation via a series of national television spots with high-profile former players who subsequently achieved remarkable success later in life.

The campaign was announced at the Omni Dallas Hotel during the NFF Leadership Hall of Fame induction of
Jerry Jones, the owner, president and general manager of the Dallas Cowboys. Jones, who attributes much of his success in life to his experiences as a college football player at the University of Arkansas, worked with the NFF to dedicate the proceeds from the event to help launch the campaign.

“I have been proud to serve on the National Football Foundation Board of Directors since 2007,” said Jones. “The organization represents a tremendous set of values, and its Football Matters campaign will provide an important platform for sending a powerful message about the lasting impact that our sport has had in the development of so many of our nation’s leaders. It’s a privilege to play a role in launching the project.”

“This campaign is an opportunity for all of us who care about football to recall the lessons learned from this great game,” said NFF Chairman
Archie Manning. “Over the years, numerous past players have asked the NFF for an outlet to express their passion for the game. This campaign will showcase the impact football has had on their lives, helping us to generate awareness for why football matters long after the games have been played.”

Tonight’s announcement premiered the first TV spot and testimonial, which showcased
Jeff Immelt, the Chairman and CEO of GE and a former offensive lineman at Dartmouth College. The commercial, produced by the Dallas-based The Richards Group, captures Immelt’s perspective on the value of his football experiences in running one of the world’s largest and most successful industrial conglomerates.

Multiple national media outlets have committed to run the spot in the coming weeks. The campaign will continue indefinitely with additional leaders coming forward to pay tribute to the game in subsequent TV commercials. The public service announcements will generate awareness for the campaign, hopefully encouraging people from all walks of life to share their football experiences as part of the social media component of the campaign.

“The goal of the campaign is to generate a strong understanding of how the values learned through football translate into success later in life,” said NFF President & CEO
Steve Hatchell. “There are no better examples of this perspective than Jerry Jones and Jeff Immelt. We are extremely thrilled to have their backing and participation in tonight’s launch. The entire football community thanks them for their leadership.”

The campaign’s dual approach of highlighting the game’s greatest leaders while also engaging ordinary people in expressing their perspective will create a powerful combination that highlights football’s unique ability to shape character, build integrity and develop leaders. The stories captured by the campaign will document the impact football has had on people’s lives, providing an opportunity to tell why football matters to them.

“This campaign is not designed to raise money or sell merchandise,” said Hatchell. “It’s really not an advertising campaign at all. It’s a movement. A movement to ignite the passion we have for the game and to remind people that football goes beyond fantasy leagues, Friday night lights, Saturday tailgates and Sunday afternoons. This movement is an opportunity for everyone who has played the game to tell the story of how football has impacted their life.”

Individuals can get involved in the effort by simply posting their football stories and explaining how its life lessons have helped them off the field. Whether it’s a Tweet, a few sentences on a Facebook page or a video link, individuals can tell their football stories, and by using
#ImAFootballPlayer, their testimonials will become part of the Twitter feed on the NFF homepage (www.footballfoundation.org). The NFF, working with The Richards Group, will aggregate the posts and measure the impact.

“We are extremely excited about this campaign,” said Manning. “It gives people an opportunity to take an active role in giving back to the game.  Providing people a platform to express the positive impact that football has had on their lives is a great way to protect and grow the game for future generations. We are grateful for everybody who has played a role in today’s launch, especially Jerry Jones and Jeff Immelt.”

Dayton Flyers LB Colin Monnier selected as Campbell Trophy Semifinalist

Colin Monnier (courtesy UD)

University of Dayton redshirt senior linebacker Colin Monnier has been named a semifinalist for the National Football Foundation & College Hall of Fame’s William V. Campbell Trophy, endowed by HealthSouth.  In addition, the Chicago, Ill. native is now a candidate for the 2013 NFF National Scholar- Athlete Awards, presented Fidelity Investments.
The Campbell Trophy has been referred to as “the Academic Heisman.”  One of college football’s most sought after and competitive awards, the Campbell Trophy recognizes an individual as the absolute best in the country for his combined academic success, football performance and exemplary community leadership.
Monnier, a 2008 Marist High school graduate, battled back from injuries that cost him the 2010 season to eventually starting in every game since.  He was named First Team All-PFL, First Team Academic All-PFL, team MVP and the winner of the Chief Toscani Hitter Award in 2012. He was also presented with the Outstanding Leadership by a Male Student-Athlete Award at UD’s end-of-the-year all-sport banquet this past spring.
A Pre-Med major, Monnier is a four-time member of the PFL Academic Honor Roll. He carries a 3.49 cumulative GPA.
He is one of 170 semifinalists from all levels of college football, and one of 35 from the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision.  Butler’s Matt Lancaster, Campbell’s Kurt Odom, Drake’s Brandon Coleman, San Diego’s Blake Oliaro and Valparaiso’s Alex Grask join Monnier as one of only six student-athletes from the Pioneer Football League.
UD has had at least a semifinalist for eight straight years.  Bill Petraiuolo was selected last year. Devon Langhorst received the honor in 2011, Brandon Wingeier made the cut in 2010, Sean Heenan did in 2009 and Bart Bergfeld was also named in 2008.  Brandon Cramer was a finalist in 2007, and Brandon Godsey was a semifinalist in 2006.
Dayton is the only PFL team to even have four straight (Drake has three).  Among Division I schools, the Flyers are one of eight institutions with a semifinalist in the last eight years.  The others are Austin Peay, Bucknell, Montana, Nebraska, Rutgers, South Dakota State and Texas.
Nominated by their schools, which are limited to one nominee each, candidates for the awards must be a senior or graduate student in their final year of eligibility, have a GPA of at least 3.2 on a 4.0 scale, have outstanding football ability as a first team player or significant contributor, and have demonstrated strong leadership and citizenship. The class is selected each year by the NFF Awards Committee, which is comprised of a nationally-recognized group of media, College Football Hall of Famers and athletics administrators.
“The NFF would like to personally congratulate each of the nominees for maintaining such high standards throughout their collegiate careers,” said NFF President & CEO Steven J. Hatchell. “We are extremely proud to showcase their achievements, and there is no question that the NFF Awards Committee will have an incredibly difficult task in selecting the final group of honorees from among this esteemed group.”
The NFF Awards Committee will select up to 16 recipients, and the results will be announced via a national press release on Thursday, October 31. Each recipient will receive an $18,000 postgraduate scholarship, and they will vie as finalists for the 2013 William V. Campbell Trophy.
Each member of the 2013 National Scholar-Athlete Class will also travel to New York City be honored December 10 during the 56th NFF Annual Awards Dinner at the Waldorf-Astoria where their accomplishments will be highlighted in front of one of the most powerful audiences in all of sports.
One member of the class will also be announced live at the event as the winner of the Campbell Trophy.
Named in honor of Bill Campbell, the chairman of Intuit, former player and head coach at Columbia University and the 2004 recipient of the NFF’s Gold Medal, the award comes with a 25-pound bronze trophy and increases the amount of the recipient’s grant by $7,000 for a total post-graduate scholarship of $25,000.
A total distribution of $300,000 in scholarships will be awarded at the NFF Annual Awards Dinner, pushing the program’s all-time distributions to more than $10.1 million.
Launched in 1959, the NFF scholar-athlete program became the first initiative in history to award post-graduate scholarships based on both a player’s academic and athletic accomplishments.
The Campbell Trophy, first awarded in 1990, adds to the program’s mystique, having previously honored two Rhodes Scholars, a Rhodes Scholar finalist, two Heisman Trophy winners and five first-round NFL draft picks.
In 2011, the NFF and Fidelity announced a multi-year initiative between the two organizations to celebrate the scholar-athlete ideal and a joint commitment to higher education. As part of the initiative, Fidelity became the first presenting sponsor ever in the 55-year history of the NFF National Scholar-Athlete Awards program.
The past recipients of the Campbell Trophy include: Air Force’s Chris Howard (1990); Ohio State’s Bobby Hoying (1995); Florida’s Danny Wuerffel (1996); Tennessee’s Peyton Manning (1997); Marshall’s Chad Pennington (1999); Ohio State’s Craig Krenzel (2003); Tennessee’s Michael Munoz (2004); Florida’s Tim Tebow (2009); Texas’ Sam Acho (2010); Army’s Andrew Rodriguez (2011) and Alabama’s Barrett Jones (2012).
Dayton is back in action Saturday when the Flyers host Davidson at 1:00 p.m. ET at Welcome Stadium.
