Longtime Dayton offensive coordinator Whilding retiring Dec. 15

University of Dayton assistant football coach Dave Whilding has announced that he will retire from the University.  Whilding, 62, is completing his 35th year at UD.
“I’ve enjoyed all 35 years.  That’s all I can say,” Whilding said.  “I’ve enjoyed every minute of it.  It’s been a pleasure for me to work with a lot of good people, and it’s been fun coaching these kids.  We have great kids, and they are competitive.
“We have great people at the University of Dayton, and not just in athletics. It’s not like this everywhere, I’m convinced of that.  I’m thankful for the opportunity that Rick Carter, and then Mike Kelly gave me.  And it’s been fun working with Rick (Chamberlin) all these years.”
Whilding has spent the last 31 years coaching UD’s quarterbacks and the last 29 serving as offensive coordinator.  He inherited a school-record games-without-being shutout streak that began in 1976, and extended it to its current 396 games, the longest active streak in college football and the longest-ever in FCS football.
“It has been a pleasure and honor to have worked with Coach Whilding, in my case for these past 33 years,” Dayton head coach Rick Chamberlin said.  “He is one of the best offensive coordinators in college football, and he is a big reason for the success our football program enjoys.  Our players, fellow coaches and everyone in the UD athletics division will miss him.”
Whilding was an integral part of four national championship football teams at Dayton (1980 and 1989 NCAA Division III and 2002 and 2007 I-AA Mid-Major), and 11 Pioneer Football League champions.
Of the 17 new starting quarterbacks in Whilding’s 31 years of coaching the position, 11 took over with less than 20 career passes to their credit.  Yet the Flyer offense kept clicking.
At present, three of his quarterbacks have been inducted into the University of Dayton Athletic Hall of Fame.  During a five-year period in the 1990’s, three Flyer QB’s led their respective NCAA Divisions in passing efficiency.  In career total offense, nine of the top ten players in UD history are Whilding quarterbacks.
Whilding and his wife Evie live in Jamestown, Ohio. Their daughter Amy graduated from UD in 1995.  A native of Xenia, Ohio. Whilding earned his backelor’s degree from Earlham College in 1971.  He played quarterback there for Rick Carter, the coach who brought him to UD.  Whilding’s last day at the University will be Dec. 15.

This week’s feature is on Corey Shelton, quarterback for the Cedarville High School Indians. He is 6’0, 180 and a senior. He was an offensive guard the past two seasons, but was asked to switch to quarterback by head coach Austin Steward.

After a 5-player tryout at quarterback during preseason practices, Coach Steward selected Corey as the Number 1 signal-caller. That decision has helped the Indians become one of the most improved teams in the tough Ohio Heritage Conference.

With Shelton at quarterback, the Indians use the triple-option attack on offense. He has good speed and that one of the reasons why the team has improved dramatically in 2010. He has several teammates which can give defenses fits: running backs Gabe Sayers and Zeke Young. The wide receivers have talent and speed, Luke Sheridan, Taylor Kordic and Seth Wright.

Shelton’s stats are impressive; a 61-yard touchdown run against Springfield Northeastern, over 700 yards running and over 500 passing with 7 rushing touching downs.

As mentioned before, Cedarville plays in the Ohio Heritage Conference which includes Mechanicsburg, Springfield Catholic Central, West Liberty-Salem, North Lewisburg Triad, Springfield Northeastern, South Charleston Southeastern and Jamestown Greeneview. The league was established in 2001. Most of the schools used to play in the now-defunct West Central Ohio Conference (WCOC) which was a good league, but rarely got teams into the state playoffs because they couldn’t get the computers needed. The OHC sometimes has as many has three teams in the playoffs because it’s a tougher league and more balanced.

The Cedarville Indians are a Division VI team and they play in Region 24 of the state. The school used to be one of the top football teams in the state under long-time coach Jim Villinger who is still very popular around town. The Indians have played in 9 state playoffs (1986, 1988, 1992, 1994, 1995, 1997, 1998, 2000 and 2001. Their best playoff finish was in 1994 when they went to the Division VI Finals. Their last league title was in 1998 and their last winning season was in 2001.

Coming into 2010, Cedarville had plenty of experience only losing five players through graduation. The number of players had decreased over the years, but this season the roster went from 22 to 34. The team had 9 starters back on offense and defense.

On defense, Cedarville employs the 4-4 formation. In 2009, they allowed a whopping 332 points, which was the most in the Ohio Heritage Conference and second most in the Springfield area. This season they have allowed just 200 through eight games. But they play explosive and high-scoring West Liberty-Salem next week to end the season.

Reviewing the season, after eight games, the Indians are 4-4, 3-3 in the Ohio Heritage Conference. That is a big improvement over last year’s 2-8 overall record and 0-7 in the OHC. Shelton says that he feels that head coach Austin Steward has the program going in the right direction.

August 27 at Madison Plains, a 28-0 win.

September 3 against Cincinnati Christian, the Indians won 48-7 as they held Cincinnati to 127 yards of total offense. Corey Shelton, Gabe Sayers and Zeke Young scored two touchdowns apiece.

September 10, they were supposed to play Yellow Springs, but the week became an open week.

September 17, they ran up against the best team in the Ohio Heritage Conference, Springfield Catholic Central and lost 42-0. Corey Shelton ran for 104 yards on 14 carries.

September 24, Northeastern beat them 28-21.

October 1, Cedarville traveled eight miles to the east to play arch-rival Greeneview and won 45-24. Zeke Young scored four tochdowns and had an 89-yard kickoff return for a touchdown in the first quarter.

October 8, they traveled to Mechanicsburg and were shutout 28-0.

October 15, Cedarville beat Southeastern, by putting the game away in the second half, 40-16. They had 4 scores in the second half. Corey Shelton rushed for 157 yards and a touchdown and passed for 97 yards and two more scores. Zeke Young had a nice game as well, rushing for 175 yards and two touchdowns.

October 22, they ran into the second-best team in the OHC, the Triad Cardinals and lost 35-7.

The improve in the Cedarville Indians has been seen all season and hopefully, the team can get back to the days when they are a yearly threat to win conference championships and get to the state playoffs!

Special thanks goes out to Cedarville head football coach Austin Steward and quarterback Corey Shelton for taking out of their busy schedules to help with the interview and article.
