Soph Running Back Ran For 268 Yards In Saturday’s Win

ST. LOUIS – University of Dayton sophomore running back Jake Chisholm was named the Pioneer Football League’s Offensive Player of the Week for his performance in UD’s 49-35 win at Morehead State on Saturday.

 

In his second career start, Chisholm ran 35 times for 268 yards and two touchdowns.  It was the best game on the ground in the PFL this season, the second-best ever at UD (behind Connor Kacsor’s 301 yards in 2014) and the third-best in FCS football this season.

 

Chisholm’s 113 yards in the third quarter alone nearly matched his previous career best of 117 yards set last week against San Diego.

 

The graduate Union (Ky.) High School Dayton’s last two touchdowns in the 14-point win.

 

He also caught a pass for 12 yards and returned two kickoffs for 58 yards.  His 338 yards in all-purpose yardage is the second-best at the FCS level this season, and lifted his per game average to 198.7 yards a game.  That is currently second-best in FCS.

 

Chisholm is third in the PFL in rushing yardage per game (95.7) and his 7.4 yards per carry average leads the league.

 

The Flyers are 5-3 overall and tied for third in the PFL with a 3-2 record.  UD is home this Saturday against one of the other two teams tied with them, Marist.  Game time is 1 p.m. ET.

Dayton Football player Ryan Culhane named the November PlayMaker of the Month by the Institute for Sport and Social Justice

ORLANDO – University of Dayton senior football player and Student-Athlete Advisory executive board member Ryan Culhane was recently named the November PlayMaker of the Month by the Institute for Sport and Social Justice.

The Institute For Sport & Social Justice (“The Institute”) PlayMaker of the Month award program recognizes the academic achievement and community service of student-athletes that reflect “The Institute’s” core values.

Culhane, a native of Naperville, Ill., has been an active member of Dayton’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee since his freshman year. SAAC representatives serve as liaisons to administration and are tasked with relaying very important information to their teams, and also organizing teammates to attend community outreach events, as well as career development opportunities. For the 2019-20 season, he was voted to the executive board and serves as the Co-Community Service chair.

A chemical engineering major, he’s been named to the Pioneer Football League Academic Honor Roll.

Most recently, Culhane and softball player Jules Curry have worked with Dayton athletics, SAAC, and the UD Bookstore to sell Dayton Strong shirts with all proceeds going to the Dayton Foundation, specifically to the Oregon District Tragedy and Tornado Relief Funds. The deadline to donate to those funds was Oct. 31. Tonight, at the Dayton men’s basketball exhibition game vs. Cedarville, Culhane, Curry, and Jenny Napier will present a check to the Dayton Foundation. Dayton Strong shirts are still being sold at Flyer Spirit on Brown Street, at the UD Bookstore, at the Cronin Family Spirit Shop at UD Arena, and also online at https://shop.udayton.edu/dayton-strong-tee

Culhane has spoken about leadership, commitment, and the importance of giving your best to two local inner-city Dayton schools: Horace Mann Elementary and Blairwood Elementary.

Other SAAC initiatives he’s been involved with include creating Valentine’s cards to give to sick children at a local hospital, putting on a talent show with proceeds going toward school supplies for Blairwood Elementary, another talent show with all proceeds going to the Dayton Foundation.

Culhane also took the lead on involving student-athletes in Dayton’s first Day of Giving this spring. The Flyers hosted a field day to help promote the event which raised $866,284 from 5,638 total donors in 24 hours.

Every year, Culhane has volunteered for Christmas on Campus, a university-run day where children in the Dayton community are buddied with a student who takes them around campus partaking in different Christmas activities. The past two years, Ryan has been on the committee to help pair up the children with student-athletes.

PlayMaker of the Month gives coaches, administrators, teammates, and faculty the opportunity to nominate and recognize those student-athletes who exemplify the “The Institute’s” motto of “Changing Lives Through the Power of Sport.” PlayMaker of the Month recipients are recognized in the months of October through June. “The Institute” exists to promote and advocate for diversity and inclusion, social justice, and ethical and moral leadership.

Dayton Football Flyers ride legs of Jake Chisholm in 49-35 win at Morehead State

Flyer Sophomore’s 268 Yards Rushing Is Second-Most In Flyer Football History

MOREHEAD, Ky. – The University of Dayton used a potent ground game to defeat Morehead State 49-35 today on the road.  Sophomore running back Jake Chisholm carried the ball 35 times for 268 yards and two touchdowns to pace the Flyers.  Chisholm’s 268 yards is the second-biggest rushing game by a Flyer running back, trailing only Connor Kacsor’s 301 yards against Georgetown (DC) in the 2014 season opener.

Dayton is now 5-3 overall and tied for third in the Pioneer Football League with a 3-2 PFL record.

 

1ST QUARTER – Dayton 28, Morehead State 7

•    Dayton opened the game with a 78-yard drive all on the ground that was finished off with a 45-yard rush by Jack Cook.

•    After a stop, the Flyers scored again on a 41-yard pass from Cook to Ryan Skibinski to take a 14-0 lead just five minutes into the game.

•    Morehead State answered quickly with a 47-yard passing touchdown to cut the lead to 14-7 with 7:53 left in the quarter.

•    Skibinski scored his second touchdown on a 10-yard rush to give the Flyers a 21-7 lead with 3:35 left in the first quarter.

•    A third touchdown for Ryan Skibinski on a 20-yard pass from Cook extended the lead 28-7.

•    The Flyers had 243 yards in the first half.

 

2ND QUARTER – Dayton 35, Morehead State 14

•    Morehead State opened the second quarter with an 11-yard touchdown pass.

•    Cook scored his fourth touchdown of the day on an 11-yard touchdown run. Dayton led 35-14 with 6:46 left in the half.

 

3RD QUARTER – Dayton 42, Morehead State 28

•    After neither team scored on their first possession of the half, Morehead State took advantage of a short field after an interception to drive 37 yards for a score.  Issiah Aguero scored on a one-yard run.

•    The Flyers answered by giving the ball to Jake Chisholm eight straight times to drive 61 yards.  The final 13 were Chisholm’s first TD of the day.

•    Morehead State came right back with a 75-yard drive, the bulk of which came on a 51-yard TD pass from quarterback Mark Pappas to Landon Hurst.

 

4TH QUARTER – Dayton 49, Morehead State 35

•    Chisholm had 43 yards on the first play of a drive that began in the third quarter, and scored his second TD of the day from 10 yards out.

•    The Eagles got another touchdown run from Aguero to make it a 14-point game (49-35) on its next series.

•    But after 84 points in the first 50 minutes of the game, neither team scored in the last 10. Dayton kept the ball for six-and-a-half minutes before punting it back to MSU.  Morehead ran 14 plays and moved the ball 77 yards, but Zach Rumpke tipped a pass on fourth-and-goal to stop the last threat of the game.

 

INSIDE THE NUMBERS

•    After gaining 117 yards on 17 carries last week in his first career start, Jake Chisholm blew both numbers out of the water with 32 rushes for 268 yards.  Only Connor Kacsor ran for more yards in a single game in a Dayton uniform (Kacsor had 301 yards on Sept. 6, 2014 in the year’s season opener against the Georgetown Hoyas).

•   Chisholm also returned a pair of kickoffs for 58 yards and caught one pass for 12, giving him 338 all-purpose yards on the afternoon.

•    Chisholm’s 7.7 yards per carry average was actually third-best on the day for UD, thanks to the work of the Flyer offensive line – Tim Roell, Dom Sciaretti, Nick Bart, Michael Niese, Jacob Brunson and Justin Karem.

•    Quarterback Jack Cook only threw the ball 14 times, but gained 88 yards on 11 carries with two TD runs.

•    Ryan Skibinski ran the ball three times for 31 yards.  He also caught a pair of passes for 61 yards.  He only had five touches on the day but scored three times.  Both of his receptions were for touchdowns, along with a 10-yard TD run.

•    Safety Brandon Easterling led UD with 14 tackles (7 solo).

•    Matt Clifford was next in tackles, with eight, and he also added an interception and pass broken up.

•    Zach Rumpke also had an interception and pass break up.

•    Defensive tackle Kyle Finnick made his first career start and chipped in 1.5 sacks.

•    Punter Allen Waltz made the most of his two punts. Averaging 40 yard per and putting both inside the 20-yard-line.

 

UP NEXT

•    Dayton returns home to face Marist on Saturday, Nov. 9 at Welcome Stadium.

•    Game time is 1 p.m. ET.
