Denison senior Larry Farmer (Gurnee, IL/Warren Twp.) reached the milestone in the Big Red’s 70-56 victory over Oberlin, and is now the 19th player in DU history to reach the mark.

Actors Steve Carell, Hal Holbrook, actress Jennifer Garner and Micheal Eisner would be proud of their alma mater.

The Denison Big Red football program, long been thought of as an also-ran in the NCAC where Wittenberg, Wabash and Wooster have dominated. Denison  finally beat Wooster in football and won back the Old Red Lantern which is a traveling trophy.

All of the Denison football players did not know about it nor had ever seen it.

The reason it was not known about, was because Denison had not beaten Wooster since 1995 and had lost 10 straight in the series.

All of that changed on Saturday when the Big Red pulled the upset over one of the top teams in the North Coast Athletic Conference, Wooster in Wooster, Ohio, 27-13.

Leading the charge for the Big Red was Sam Fioroni, a junior from Clarkston, Michigan, who rushed for 125 yards on 28 carries and scored on a 15-yard TD reception.

Denison is now 3-2 on the season. They’ve won three of their past four games and are showing under head coach Jack Hatem that they can have a winning season. Last year they ended up 4-6.

Denison University is a liberal arts college in the Licking County city of Granville, Ohio. Founded in 1831, the school has 2,132 students.

The seventh-ranked team in the country, the Wittenberg University Tigers football team has been selected to play in the NCAA Division III Tournament for the 14th time in school history.

The Tigers open their drive for a third national title since the start of the tournament in 1973 with a first round game at Ohio Northern University this Saturday at 12 noon in Ada, Ohio.

The Tigers, who won the North Coast Athletic Conference (NCAC) for the 10th time since joining the league in 1989, completed a perfect regular season with a 22-17 win at Wooster last Saturday, to reach the national playoffs for the second straight season. Wittenberg advanced to the national quarterfinals in 2009 before losing to eventual national champion Wisconsin-Whitewater.

Wittenberg won the inaugural NCAA Division III Tournament in 1973, added a second title in 1975 and were national runner-ups in 1978 and 1979. Wittenberg is the NCAA Division III program with the most wins in history. The Tigers have a 20-11 overall record in the tournament.

Ohio Northern finished second as was predicted in the preseason media and coaches poll in the Ohio Athletic Conference (OAC) with records of 9-1 overall, 8-1 in the league, losing only to league champion Mt. Union, 27-0.

The winner of the first round game between fourth-seeded Ohio Northern and fifth-seeded Wittenberg will advance to face the winner of the game between first-seeded North Central University and eighth-seeded Benedictine University. The game will be played at the home field of the highest remaining seed.
