Alumni Report - Offense

The following is a list of some of the more highly recruited JC players who are making their marks at the next level. Considering that there are an estimated 1,400 players who have made the transition to the NCAA, or the NAIA, it is far from a complete list. PHOTO: Tyler Lorenzen, QB, UConn via Palomar College - at combine 06.

Our apologies for any glaring omissions! NOTE: Stats are from games played through 9/8/07.

Also, some players who were recruited on one side of the ball, are now playing on the other side. This report is strictly regarding the offensive side of the ball, and a defensive report will be posted in a couple of weeks. Tim also plans to report on NAIA playmakers with JC ties in the future.


Colt Brennan - Saddleback - University of Hawaii

Colt is perhaps college football's best QB and will certainly be a 1st round draft pick. After throwing for 5,549 yards last year, the Heisman Trophy candidate led the Warriors to a 63-6 victory in the opener against Northern Colorado, throwing for 416 yards and 6 TDs, in the first half!  He was an incredible 34/40 in that contest. Can you imagine if he’d played the whole game…a possible 68 completions…are you kiddin' me?  He earned the AT&T All American Player of the Week award, which is strictly a fan vote. In his second game, an overtime victory over Louisiana Tech, he threw for 548 yards and 4 more touchdowns. The close contest prompted Tech coach Derek Dooley to say "It's not everyday a guy throws for 500 yards on you, and you feel like you did a good job on him."

Last year he was a third team All American and WAC player of the year. He also was second on the team in rushing with 366 yards. Brennan has moved into 5th place on the NCAA career passing TD list at 101. He has thrown for over 400 yards in his last 8 starts, and has thrown a TD pass in 28 consecutive games. He now shares the NCAA record for consecutive 200 yard games at 28. And...he has a lot of games left.

Tyler Lorenzen - Palomar - Connecticut

The former Comet came out of the shoot with a great game against Duke. He passed for 298 yards and ran for 56 more in a 45-14 win. In his second game, a 38-0 blanking of Maine, Lorenzen rushed for 42 yards and passed for another 186. He threw two TD passes and rushed for another one. Lorenzen is a great running QB, but does not lack an accurate arm, making him extremely dangerous.

Reilly Murphy - Grossmont - Indiana State

The leader of the Grossmont National Championship team threw for over 1,700 yards last season and is looking to have an even better season this year. Reilley took a beating against state rival Indiana in the opener, but was able to go 20-36 in a 55-7 shellacking. Murphy was 13-25 for 154 yards, one TD, and two picks, and rushed for 43 more yards in a loss to Austin Peay.

Seth Adams - Hinds CC - Ole Miss

Adams was a walk on at Ole Miss and although he lacks the mobility of fellow juco transfer Brent Schaeffer, was very impressive in spring drills. The two may rotate based on the types of defense they face. He had a solid first start in a win against Memphis throwing for 201 yards and a TD. He had a breakout day in the second game against Missouri. He threw for 305 yards and three TDs, but came up short in a comeback bid.

Omar Haugabook - Dodge City - Troy

Haugabook achieved almost every personal award possible last season. He was named the Sun Belt Conference Player of the Year, the Newcomer of the Year, the Offensive Player of the Year, and was a first team All Conference QB. He was also named the MVP of the New Orleans Bowl. Omar was a little shaky in the opener completing only 35% of his passes, but he did manage to throw for 204 yards and rushed for 38 more in a 20 point loss to Arkansas. In the second game against defending National champs Florida, Omar acquitted himself very nicely in a 59-31 loss. He was 29-52 for 283 yds and 2 TDs. He also had a 31 yard TD scamper. After going up against two SEC teams, things should get a lot easier for Omar. *UPDATE: Haugabook looked good on ESPN leading Troy to a big win over Oklahoma State last weekend.

Brent Schaeffer - COS - Ole Miss

Brent started at QB for the Rebels all of last season but has been usurped for the job by fellow senior JC transfer Seth Adams, who is more of a pocket passer. Brent is a tremendous athlete in the mold of Michael Vick, but the Rebs decided they needed more accuracy from their QB. Word is that Brent may play some receiver, ala former Reedley QB Robert Johnson, who had a tremendous career at wideout for Texas Tech.

Thomas Peregrin - Bakersfield - Western Michigan

Peregrin is a great kid from a close knit family in Sparks Nevada. He holds most of the Renegade career passing records. The Falcon is sharing time at QB, but had a solid showing against West Virginia in the opener. He was 9-17 with a touchdown against a solid D-1 program.

Jimmy Oliver - Pearl River - Jackson State

Last season Oliver was first in the conference in total offense. Jimmy had a tough 2007 debut against Delta State throwing for only 93 yards and being sacked 4 times in a 27-15 loss. It didn't get much better for him in the second game, a heartbreaking 16-13 loss to Tennessee State. He rushed for 25 yards, but was only 3-10 passing for 28 yards.

Cedric Johnson - Copiah Lincoln - Jacksonville State

Cedric shares time at QB, he was a solid 12/17 for 159 yds and a TD in an opening game win against Chattanooga.  In a close loss to Alabama State, he was 5-9 passing and rushed for 33 yards.

Drew Branch - Reedley - Northwestern State

Drew is a part-time player also and was 3-9 for 21 yards in the second contest for the 2-0 Demons.

Jonathan Dally - Allan Hancock - Cal Poly

Dally is also sharing duties. He was 6-12 for 113 yards and a TD in an opening loss to Texas State. He threw for 175 yards and rushed for 12 in a close lost to Idaho.

Victor Anderson - Mesa - SE Missouri State

Anderson threw for only 58 yards but made up for it with 118 yards rushing against Cincinnati and was named Ohio Valley conference Newcomer of the Week. Unfortunately the Red Hawks were drubbed 59-3. He threw for 55 yards in a win over SW Baptist. Twin brother Vince is one of his receivers.

Lyle Moevao - El Camino - Oregon State

Lyle saw some action against Utah and went 3-9 for 32 yards. He saw more action in a big loss to Cincinnati, going 14-23 for 143 yards, but had three interceptions.

Sean Flynn – LA Harbor –San Jose State

A groin injury hampered him last season, but he is doing a great job so far as a part time signal caller. In 2 games, he is 8-11 passing.

Sean Setzer - Garden City - Utah State

Semaj Williams - Coahoma- Mississippi Valley State


Ryan Torain - Butler - Arizona State

Torain is off to a fantastic start gaining 123 yards on 17 carries with 3 TDs against San Jose State. He picked up another 91 yards in a victory over Colorado. He is already considered to be one of the Sun Devils best all time backs. He rushed for 1,229 yards and had 10 TDs last season as he earned 2nd Team All Pac-Ten. He also was second on the team in receptions and averaged over 11 yards a catch, leading all conference tailbacks in that statistic. His talents remind me of former COC RB J.J. Arrington, now playing for the Arizona Cardinals, and his versatility should bode well for him in the N.F.L. draft. Mel Kiper lists him as the number 2 Senior RB in the nation.

Jamicah Bass - El Camino - Iowa State

One of the reasons why Elco won the State Title last season, J.J. wasted no time showing his talents as he rushed for 133 yards on 22 carries and a TD in a losing effort in the opener against Kent State. He was the first Cyclone RB since 1989 to debut with over 100 yards. It's no wonder CCSF had a hard time containing him in last year's State Championship game. He came back with 43 yards and a TD rushing against Northern Iowa and caught 4 passes for 27 yards.

Jaycen Taylor - LA Harbor - Purdue

The man with the mohawk haircut was Spring Newcomer of the Year. Jaycen also had a solid start gaining 84 yards on only 9 carries in a 52-24 rout of Toledo. He had 85 yards in another rout against EIU.

Dantrell Savage - Miss Gulf Coast - Oklahoma State

The Cowboys were dropped by #13 Georgia, but Dantrell did a good job with 58 yards on only 10 carries with a TD.

James Johnson - Blinn - Kansas State

James had a tough game rushing against Auburn, picking up only 14 yds. But he showed his versatility with 7 receptions for 40 yards. He picked up the output with a 111 yd perfomance on only 15 carries with a TD against San Jose State.

Frank Summers - Laney -UNLV

"Frank the Tank" scored the winning TD on an eleven yard run with 1:02 left to win the opener against Utah State. The 5'11, 240 lb bowling ball picked up 40 yards on 10 carries in the Rebel's first road win in almost three seasons. Frank had 25 more yards in a Rebel bid to upset Wisconsin, that fell just short.

Mike Ford - Copiah Lincoln - South Florida

Ford is a quick and powerful. In a 28-13 victory over Phoenix, Ford rushed for 83 yards on only 6 carries, three of them for TDs! Ford was not a slated starter but his coach may be rethinking that. "Mike did a nice job." said head coach Jim Leavitt. "He ran well. Obviously we got to look at him." In the second game, Ford once again led the Bulls in rushing in a stunning upset of Auburn. He had another 74 yards and a TD. On the upset, Ford said "It's just love, all love...The one thing about USF football is we are all family."

Daniel Dufrene - COS - Illinois

The former Giant picked up 48 yards on only 6 carries in a close loss to Missouri. He had another 51 yards on 9 carries in a win over Western Illinois. That kind of running should get him more and more carries as the season progresses.

Travon Jones - Fresno City - Sacramento State

Travon got a cool reception by the Fresno State Bulldogs in his hometown as he was held to 49 yards on 17 carries. Things should get better for him in league action. Sac had a bye in the second week.

Darian Williams - Iowa Central - Northern Iowa

Darian was the Gateway Newcomer of the Year in 2005. He had a solid 52 yards on 11 carries with a TD in 41-14 win over Minnesota State Mankato

Larry Warner - Miss Gulf Coast - Southern Illinois

In a win over Quincy, Warner had 33 yds on 8 carries with a score, and followed that up with a 40 yard game for the 2-0 Salukis.

Joe Chatman – Fullerton – Midwestern State

Many wondered whatever happened to Joe as he was a top ranked Juco recruit. He had a bad ankle sprain, but is delivering for the Mustangs with 126 yards on 21 carries thus far.


Larry Warner - Miss Gulf Coast - Southern Illinois

Bryan Flowers - El Camino - Idaho

Matt Asiata - Snow – Utah (season ending injury in 1st game)

Brandon Barnett - Butler - Arkansas

Curtis Steele - NW Mississippi - Memphis

Jeff Blanchard - Gaden City - Florida Atlantic

Eric Lee - Glendale AZ - Weber State

J.R. Rogers - Bakersfield - East Carolina

Jacob French - Foothill - San Jose State (scored TD in 2nd game)


Devin Thomas - Coffeyville - Michigan State

A big target at 6'2 and 215 lbs, along with 4.45 speed, makes for one of the Spartans premiere weapons. A deep threat,Thomas had 5 catches for 106 yards and a TD in the first game. He followed that up with with 4 catches for 156 yards with a TD against Bowling Green. He's averaging over 29 yards a catch!

Maurice Purify – CCSF – Nebraska

Purify is a solid NFL draft pick. He has great size at 6’4, 220, with good speed. He creates match-up problems with that size and his knack of taking it to the house. Great fade pass receiver in the end-zone. He got himself in trouble and was suspended for the opening game. He game back just in time for the Huskers to avoid an upset lost to Wake Forest. He had 3 catches for 30 yards in that game. Maurice was 2nd team All Big 12 last season.

Taj Smith - Bakersfield - Syracuse

Taj was named Offensive Captain of the team and his story is an inspiration to his team mates. He came to Bakersfield College with an attitude, and left a man. On a mission to Romania, he was so touched by the orphan children, he gave up his brand new gloves to a child. The trip showed him just how much he really had, and it changed his whole outlook on life. In a loss to Washington, he collected 5 passes for 33 yards with a rookie QB at the helm. He then caught 3 more passes for 51 yards in a loss to Iowa. Look for him to have a break out season.

Charles Dillon - Ventura - Washington State

Charles set single season records at Ventura with 69 catches, 1,004 yards, and 13 TDs. A receiver out of the same mold as Maurice Purify (CCSF Nebraska), Dillon is a terror on the fade route with his strength and hops. He had 2 catches for 20 yards in the opener against Wisconsin, but followed that up with a great 8 catch 100 yard performance against San Diego State.

C.J. Hawthorne - Miss Gulf Coast - Hawaii

It is literally and figuratively a long way from Mississippi to Hawaii. But C.J. was one of Heisman Trophy candidate Colt Brennan's favorite targets in the first game of 2007, catching 4 passes with one score. He followed that up with 6 catches for 73 yards in the OT victory over Louisiana Tech. He can also play corner when called upon and has. He started about half of the games there last season.

Deon Murphy - Coffeyville - Kansas State

Considered one of the countries most dangerous returners with his 4.36 speed, Murphy played very well against Auburn. A versatile receiver, he had 5 catches for 39 yards and rushed the ball twice for 13 more. He also works punt return duties for the Wildcats, returning two for 21 yards. Deon latched on to 6 catches for 72 yards and a TD in a win over San Jose State. He also had a 21 yard run, and returned 3 punts for 81 yards including a 56 yarder. Murphy wants to pursue a career in broadcasting and has the looks and articulation to succeed.

Marcel Reese - El Camino - Washington

Marcel had a solid season last fall and has found a home in Husky Land. He had 4 catches for 50 yards in a 42-12 victory on opening day. Then he gathered in about 100 yards in a win over Boise.

Nick Miller - Scottsdale - Southern Utah

Nick was the go to guy to get a first down against Montana, catching 6 passes for 55 yards in a 20 point loss.

Frantz Hardy - Butler - Nebraska

Gone is fellow Butler player QB Zac Taylor to throw him the ball, but Hardy still has a knack for getting open. He had one catch for 24 yards against Nevada.

Vince Anderson - Mesa - SE Missouri State

Like the Taylor to Hardy connection, it's nice when your Juco QB is throwing to you on the next level. But it's even nicer in Vince's case, as twin brother Victor is the signal caller for the Redhawks. Vince led the team with 3 catches for 22 yards in the lopsided opening loss to Cincy.

Darius Passmore - COS - Marshall

Darius had 2 catches for 21 yards in loss to Miami. He had a fantastic game against West Virgina, latching on to 5 catches for 76 yards with a score. The rangy receiver is expected to do great things for the Thundering Herd.

Dion Tolliver - Riverside - Tulsa

Dion had 2 catches for 24 yards in Tulsa's win over Lousiana Monroe.

T.J. Lee - Bakersfield - East Carolina

Lee is one of the best bubble screen receivers around. Once he has the ball in his hands he can swivel hip his way into the open. Many receivers are as fast as him, but few are as elusive in a crowd. He had only one catch for 17 yards in his debut, but I think he will quickly become a big weapon for the Pirates.

David Richmond - Santa Ana - San Jose State

The Spartans got it handed to them against Arizona State, but it wasn't for a lack of effort on David's part. He caught 5 passes for 32 yards against the Sun Devils. He had 1 catch for 28 yards in second game. He's the Spartans' top receiver.

Kyle Flynn - L.A. Harbor - San Jose State

Kyle also had a catch for 10 yards against AZ State. Brother Sean is a QB for the Spartans.

Gerald Tate - Dodge City - Troy

Gerald had 2 catches for 38 yards and a TD in a 1st game loss to the Razorbacks. He followed that up with 2 more catches for 14 yards against Florida.

Steven Black - East Miss - Memphis

Three catches for 38 yards in loss to Ole Miss.

Steve Johnson - Chabot - Kentucky

Steve had 1 catch for 18 yards in Wildcats dominating performance over Eastern Kentucky. He came back with a solid performance against Kent, snaring 3 more passes for 71 yards including a 31 yard TD in the 1st quarter.

Kayne Faquharson - El Camino - Miami

The ex-Warrior is already getting reps for the 'Canes. He had one catch for 12 yards in the opener.

Aaron Straiten - CCSF - UNLV

Another tall receiver who can go up and get it, Aaron had 22 catches last season as a part time starter. In the victory against Utah State, he had 3 catches for 36 yards. He caught 5 more passes for 36 yards in a narrow loss to powerhouse Wisconsin. If he polishes his game and becomes more consistent, the NFL will be interested.

Tony Burks - Miss Gulf Coast - Mississippi

Burks had the unenviable task of playing against #2 LSU to kick things off. He latched on to only one pass in the 45-0 loss, but it was for 44 yards.

Chido Nwokocha - Sacramento - Ohio University

After a 20 catch season in 2006, Chido caught 3 passes for 52 yards and a TD against Gardner Webb

Nikita Stover - Itawamba - Alabama

Nick had one catch for 10 yards against West Carolina  with 3 catches for 37 yards.

Herb Martin - Pasadena - Western Michigan

Herb caught 3 passes for 22 yards in the opening day loss to West Virginia. He caught 3 more passes for 37 yards against Indiana.

Kenny Mahone - Mesa - Northern Arizona

An 2nd team All Conference receiver with 40 catches last season, he had 3 catches for 38 yards in romp over Western New Mexico, and 2 catches for 30 yards against Arizona. Also used as a returner.

Dion Tolliver - Riverside - Tulsa

Two catches for 24 yards in opener.

Shane Morales - Canyons - Oregon State

One catch for 7 yards in win over Utah. The Beavers were routed by Cincy in the next contest, but Shane contributed well with 4 catches for 28 yards.

Keith Eloi - Harper - Nebraska Omaha

Two catches for 43 yards in victory over Nebraska Kearney, followed by a 4 catch 52 yard performance in a narrow loss to NW Missouri.

Tony Washington - Moorpark - Sacramento State

Tony had a rough start against Fresno State, catching only one pass, but he was one of the best sideline receivers in Socal last season.

Eric McCain - Glendale AZ - Supplemental Draft

Eric put in is lot in the N.F.L. supplemental draft. Not many have been able to successfully make that transition, and he is a long shot.

Branson caught 5 passes for 31 yds and scored the lone TD for in an opening game loss to Louisiana Tech. He followed that up with another good performance againts Northwestern State catching three more passes for 58 yards and another TD
Jeff  Clark - LA Harbor - San Jose State

Jeff is a part time starter for the Spartans. Last season he averaged about 11 yds a catch, and scored a TD on a fumble recovery.

Chris Butler - COC - UNLV

Chris is the kind of player coaches want. He is an excellent blocker, and is intelligent as his 2006 All-MWC Academic Award can attest to. He is also a member of the 2007 Rebel Leadership Committee. He caught 5 passes, one for a TD last season.

Jeremy Carson - Highland - Southwestern Oklahoma

Jeremy has 4 catches for 34 yards so far this season. The coaching staff believes that Jeremy is their best TE in several years.

Brent Keaster - COS - Nevada

Skyler Curran - Butte - Cal

Mike Pooshke - NEO - Kansas State

Anthony Eustace - CCSG - Texas A&M Commerce

Marc Jones - Kilgore - Kansas

Collin Franklin - COC Iowa State

RJ Armstrong - Butler - North Carolina State

Joel Johnson - Phoenix - Southern Utah

Tim Merrill - Fullerton - New Mexico

Bob Ruffing - Butte - Ouchita Baptist


Mike Gibson - Solano - Cal

Mike is a starting Tackle for the Golden Bears. He became a 2nd team All Pac-10 Tackle last season after taking over the starting job in the 4th game. He had a team best 11 cuts and also had 30.5 knockdowns. He has recovered well following a spring surgery.

Carl Nicks - Hartnell - Nebraska

An imposing figure at 6'5 and 330 lbs, Carl holds down the Left Tackle position for the Huskers. Nicks has made big strides since coming up to the big boys and his coaches think he is NFL material. He is a good all around athlete having thrown the discus and shot put for Hartnell.

Corey Actis - Bakersfield - Ole Miss

The inspirational leader of the Renegades two seasons ago, Corey jumped right into the starting Center position for the Rebs last season. Corey's biggest assets are his intelligence and non stop motor. This guy blocks from snap to whistle and is not afraid to run down field to block more than one defender.

Larry Norton - Bakersfield - Syracuse

Larry joins fellow Renegade Taj Smith in the Orange starting lineup. An integral part of the BC line two seasons ago, he has quickly earned the respect of head coach Greg Robinson, a Bakersfield native.

Alesana Alesana - CCSF - Kansas State

Alesna grew up playing rugby in his native Western Samoa, so football was an easy transition for him. A JC Grid-wire first teamer, he is one of a long line of imposing offensive linemen to come out of City of San Franscisco. He is the starting Left Tackle for the Wildcats.

Scott Haverkamp - Butler - Georgia

Originally headed to Kansas, Haverkamp kept going east to Bulldog land. He anchors Georgia's front line from the Right Guard position.

Vaughn Lesuma - Mt San Jacinto - Washington State

Vaughn is also played a lot of rugby in his early years in Fiji. His High School team won the Basketball National Championship. He holds down the Left Tackle job for the Cougars.

Shannon Boatman - Tyler - Florida State

Shannon is serious about getting to the next level. After starting 12 games at Right Tackle for the 'Noles last year, he has dedicated himself to the weight room and has lost 20 lbs. At 6'7, he has the size that will make NFL scouts take notice.

Anthony Kilby - Garden City - New Mexico

A pre-season 1st Team All-MVC pick, Kilby has been described as a road grader. He has a lot of natural power, and if he improves his footwork, it may mean the NFL for him.

Justin Morsey - NEO - Tulsa

Morsey is a returning starter and the leader of the offensive line. He is tough, and at only 280 lbs. uses great leverage in his blocking skills. Every game gets his best effort.

Nick Ekbatani - LA Harbor - UCLA

Although at 285, a little undersized in today's world of massive linemen, Nick is one of the more physical players for the Bruins.
He is the backup Right Guard, but gets plenty of playing time. He is only a Junior, so a starting position could occur by next season, if not sooner.

Phil Loadholt - Garden City -Oklahoma

With 93 pancakes, Loadholt was the Jayhawk Conference Lineman of the Year. He was originally recruited by LSU but had a qualifying problem. It wasn't really an academic problem since his GPA was above a 3.0 at Garden City. The Sooners are glad to get the 6'9, 350 mountain of a man. He's already worked his way into the starting lineup of a formidable offense.

Sherrone Moore - Butler - Oklahoma

Butler gets a lot of players to the next level. Sherrone is the 2nd team backup left guard for the Sooners, who have come out of the blocks firing on all cylinders.

Brandon Walker - Coffeyville - Oklahoma

Brandon is also a second team backup for the Sooners. But he is no ordinary backup. He started last season and had the highest knockdown total on the team including 19 against rival Texas.

J.D. Hamilton - Copiah-Lincoln - Mississippi

J.D. broke into the lineup last season and started six straight starts before a knee injury occurred. He still toughed it out and played as much as his knee would allow. The knee is better now and he has the Right Guard position locked down.

Marvin Arnold - El Camino - Colorado State

Marvin made a big impression for the Rams last season and started the first 6 games until a season ending injury occurred.

Ian Hammond - Saddleback - Syracuse

After an impressive juco career blocking for guys like P.T. Gates and Daniel Dixon, Hammond is the long snapper for the Orange.

Floyd Headen - Butte - West Texas A&M 

Surprisingly agile for a 6'7, 330 lb guy, Floyd jumped right into the starting lineup for the Buffaloes last season and they averaged close to 400 yards of offense a game. He is a contender for All Conference honors and has the NFL looking at him.

Mario Duenas - CCSF - Cincinnati

The former Norcal lineman of the year is a versatile player who can play multiple offensive line positions. He played pretty extensively last season. Mario is a Bearcat honor student.

Victory Haines - Snow - Nebraska

Victory is a versatile lineman who can play many positions. He is also a perennial Honor Roll student and was on the Brook Berringer Citizenship team.

Ken Rodriquez - Citrus - Cincinnati

Ken has nailed down the starting Left Guard position for the surprising Bearcats. He's a big reason why Cincy has outscored its opponents 93-6!  They should have little problem continuing that trend, at least until they hit Louisville. After a huge win against Oregon State, they have poll votes for the first time in 14 years.

Doug Dedrick - Scottsdale - Iowa State

Iowa State doesn't have a shortage of Juco players on it's roster. Doug was a 1st team All State player in High School and now starts for ISU.

David Buehler - Santa Ana - USC

Buehler found the perfect place to play. A short drive from Santa Ana lies the #1 team in the land, the U.S.C. Trojans. Against Idaho, David kicked off 7 times with 4 of them being touchbacks. He was 5/5 in PATs and hit on his lone field goal attempt, a 36 yarder

Jared Ballman - Grossmont - Washington

Jared has a huge leg and does the kicking off and the punting for the Huskies. He is averaging a nice 42.5 yards per punt so far.

Jose Martinez – Bakersfield – UTEP

For those of you wondering whatever happened to Jose, he has found a home for the Miners, and boy is Head Coach Mike Price glad he did. He red shirted last season after ACL surgery. Jose has as big a leg as any I’ve seen in the Juco ranks. He routinely kicked balls 5 yards deep in the end zone, and I don't mean line drives. They were much too high to be returnable. I once saw him kick it through the uprights on a kickoff!

In Jose's first game, he booted a 51 yarder early on in a defensive 10-6 win over New Mexico. "Our young guys made mistakes, but we worked hard," Price said. "And I thought the kicking game might have been the difference in the game."  He connected on a 25 yarder against Texas Tech.

Vrvilo Sinisa - Trinity Valley - Bowling Green

A fantastic debut for the 260 lb. former Cardinal. He was 3 for 3 in PATs, and after missing an early 4th quarter field goal, he hit a 35 yard field goal with 3 seconds left to send the game into overtime. The Falcons went on to win the game in OT over Minnesota on a two point conversion.

Branden Jones- El Camino - Idaho State

Jones missed more than half the season his Sophomore year for the Warriors due to injury, but looks to have a great season this year. Branden took over kicking duties halfway through last season for the Bengals, and is looking to have a great season. He was 5 of 7 in Field Goal attempts and 10/11 in PATs. He also had one successful onside kick. You can read Jones's daily diary on the Idaho State website.

Jason Tompkins - COC - Minnesota -Mankato
