The Quakers missed a chance for the win on a last-second shot.

2010 OHIO ATHLETIC CONFERENCE FOOTBALL PREVIEW: Capital Crusaders picked fourth by coaches & media

The Capital University Crusaders just completed the most successful decade in school history under coaches Jim Collins and Jim Bickel. And now its time for a new decade to begin with a new head coach in Henry Stanford.

Stanford, a 1998 graduate of the Ohio State University is new as the head coach, but not new to the players and the school. He was named the 2009 Assistant Coach of the year as Capital’s offensive coordinator.

Coach Stanford told the media at the OAC football preview that:

* He’ll have 55 freshman in camp this year.

* He’ll return 7 starters on offense and defense.

* The team needs a Punter and Long Snapper.

A Crusader offense that averaged over 34 points a game in 2009, looks like it could be explosive again in 2010.

Leading the attack will be fifth year senior quarterback Marty Assmann, who finished second in the OACĀ  in both passing yards (2,382) and touchdown passes (23) in his first full season as the starter.

A large portion of the Crusaders’ offensive attack will be featuring senior running back Dominic D’Andrea and an offensive line that led the way for D’Andrea to become Capital’s first 1,000 yard running back since 1970. The offensive line is anchored by Kyle Koblinski and Brandon McCrate.

When you speak of Capital University football, a strong defensive unit can always be counted upon.

The Purple and White defense will be led by the talented linebacking corps of Sam Jacobs, Matt Heagen and Troy Spiker. Jacobs led the Crusaders with 92 tackles, while Heagen was second on the team in solo and total tackles.

The defensive line is anchored by defensive ends Aaron Rittgers and Jake Nickel.

Anchoring the defensive backfield is Ziban Abdullah.

The Crusaders at the annual OAC Football Preview in early August, was picked fourth by the coaches, garnering 56 total points. The media also selected them fourth and they collected 197 points.

Capital opens its 2010 season at Baldwin-Wallace on Saturday September 11. They have a non-conference game with Wesley on September 25 and the annual battle of Columbus with Otterbein will be October 16 at Bernlohr Stadium. Otterbein won last year 35-34, so this year’s game should be just as exciting.


* Capital is located in the Columbus, Ohio suburb of Bexley on East Main Street.

* The school was founded in 1830.

* Undergraduate enroolment is 3,850.

* Colors are Purple & White.

* The Crusaders play their games at Bernlohr Stadium which seats 3,000.

* Basic Offensive Formation is the spread.

* Basic Defensive formation is the 4-3.

* Lost 39 Letterwinners but return 21.
