NEWBERRY - The duo of Deshon Rodell and Josh Stepp combined for 378 yards of total offense while the Indian defense pitched its second shutout of the season as Newberry College defeated Brevard College 45-0 in front of 1,683 on Saturday evening at Setzler Field.

Rodell lead the Indians (3-0) on the ground with 120 yards rushing and two touchdowns, while Stepp was nearly flawless in the game, completing 11-of-12 passes for 258 yards and three touchdowns.  The Indian offense scored touchdowns on their first six possessions of the game

Newberry did not waste any time in scoring in the game.  On their first drive, Rodell rushed for a gain of 13 yards to the Newberry 46.  On the next play, Stepp hit a streaking Kelton Tindal down the sidelines for a 49-yard pass to the Brevard (0-4) five.  Stepp capped off the four-play 67-yard drive two plays later when he scored on a six-yard touchdown to give Newberry the 7-0 lead.

The next drive took only three plays and covered 40 yards in just 41 seconds.  Stepp completed a 23-yard pass to Tymere Zimmerman while Rodell had back-to-back runs of 16 and a yard out to score the Indians second touchdown of the night.  On the third drive, Roddell broke loose for a 37-yard run to make it a 21-0 game.

On Newberry�s fourth possession, Stepp found Tindal for a 34-yard touchdown strike, the first touchdown reception of his career to move the Indian lead to 28-0.  On the next drive, Stepp found a wide-open Corey Seawell for a 37-yard touchdown to move the lead to 35-0.  The first half scoring was capped off when when Stepp connected on his third touchdown pass of the evening, a 32-yard strike to Charles Brandon to move the score to 42-0.

Tindall led the receiving corps with three catches for 90 yards and a touchdown.  Seawell was not too far behind with three catches for 73 yards and a touchdown.

The Indian defense held the Tornadoes to just 176 yards of total offense.  The defense combined for six tackles-for-loss.  Linebackers Will Newell and Brandon Clontz led the team with nine tackles apiece.  Newell registered four solo stops on the night.  Temarcus Thompson forced the only turnover of the game when he recorded an interception.

Brevard was led on offense by running back Tyrone Arrington, who had 56 yard rushing.
