THE LIMESTONE... uh... SERIES?
• As this is Limestone’s first season of intercollegiate football, and only its second game, there is obviously no history between the two team.
• The two schools’ volleyball teams will play in Aiken on Friday.
• The series will evolve, as beginning in 2015, Limestone is set to take North Greenville’s place in a scheduling alliance with the South Atlantic Conference schools.
• Newberry is set to host Limestone in 2015 and 2017, with the Wolves traveling to Gaffney in 2018.

LIMESTONE CONNECTIONS

• Newberry and Limestone are rivals in the new ECAC Field Hockey Conference and opened the season against each other last week. Newberry hosts the Saints again on Nov. 5 before traveling to Gaffney from the conference tournament the next weekend.

THE COACHES
NEWBERRY:  Todd Knight (Gardner-Webb, 1989) is in his sixth season as Newberry’s head coach. He has a 28-26 record and a record of 5-3 against teams ranked in the AFCA Divsion II Top 25. He has an 18-16 record against the South Atlantic Conference. In 2009, Knight led Newberry to a 6-4 record and became the first Newberry head coach to record a winning record in his inaugural season since Reed Charpia in 1978. In 2010, Knight led Newberry to a 4-6 record, as well as the 2011 season. The Wolves went 5-6 overall in the 2012 season and achieved a ranking as high as No. 25 nationally. In 2013, he led the Wolves to a 9-3 overall record, making the school’s second appearance in the NCAA Division II playoffs. Newberry finished the season ranked No. 23 nationally.
LIMESTONE: Bobby James (Bloomsburg, 1995) is in his first season as a head coach at any level and is 0-1 after the loss to Wingate in the program opener. He was previously the defensive coordinator at Wingate for five seasons.

ROLL OVER THE ODOMETER
• Newberry quarterback W.T. Murden became just the fourth trigger man in school history to pass for over 5,000 yards in a career with his 174 yards at CSU.
• He now has 5,072 yards passing.
• He ranks third in school history in completions and touchdowns and is fourth in attempts and yardage.

HOMETOWN SCORER
• Jackson Swindler scored Newberry’s first touchdown of the season with his 62-yard score in the fourth quarter of the CSU game.
• He is the first player who is a native of Newberry to score a touchdown for Newberry College since Roderick Elkins returned an interception for the game winning touchdown at West Virginia Wesleyan on Sept. 23, 2000.
This is a span of 128 games
• The last Newberry local to score an offensive touchdown was Trokya Bates, who had a TD reception in the Nov. 14, 1998 Bronze Derby game, a 45-14 loss at Presbyterian.
This is a span of 143 games
• Newberry native Joseph Foster kicked a PAT in the home finale against North Greenville last season.
• Both players have an interesting Newberry connection, as Swindler is the son of recently retired City of Newberry police chief Jackie Swindler and Foster is the son of Newberry County Sheriff Lee Foster.
