NEWS AND NOTES
• The Newberry College Wolves keep season No. 103 rolling with the first of three consecutive home games, hosting the Division I-FCS Jacksonville Dolphins.
• This is game number 992 for the scarlet and gray. Newberry has a 410-545-36 record.
• Newberry and Jacksonville will meet for the first time. Newberry has the rare honor of a Division II school hosting a Division I school. No return game is currently contracted or scheduled.
• The Wolves started the season with a 31-28 road victory over Florida Tech on September 5, thanks in large part to impressive performances by quarterback Raleigh Yeldell and running back/return specialist Kevin Miller.
• Jacksonville also won its opening contest, 20-14, at Delaware. It was the Dolphins’ first opening week victory since 2010.
• Both offenses excelled last week, as Newberry racked up 495 yards against Florida Tech, while Jacksonville put up 339 yards on a traditionally tough Delaware squad.
• Newberry’s offense primarily came on the ground, with 324 yards, which was the 11th best performance in Division II’s first week of action.
• The Dolphins feature an air attack led by lefty quarterback Kade Bell, who completed 25-of-43 passes for 269 yards and a touchdown in the JU victory. Kade Bell is the oldest son of JU head coach Kerwin Bell.
• This is the 10th Division I game Newberry has hosted since moving to NCAA Division II in the 1991 season. Newberry is 5-4 in the previous games with three wins over Charleston Southern and a win apiece against Coastal Carolina and Morehead State.
• Morehead State’s visit in the second week of the 2006 season was the last visit by a Division I squad to Setzler Field.
• Newberry’s defense will look to be aggressive again this week. Despite no official sacks, the Wolves notched eight quarterback hurries, with Jalen Hunter, Nate Sichali and Alstevis Squirewell each hurrying the QB twice.
Sichali filled nearly every defensive column against FIT with 3 tackles, an interception, a pass breakup, two quarterback hurries and a fumble recovery.

ORDER OF THE GRAY STRIPE
• The Order of the Gray Stripe is the Wolves’ football team’s honor council, which can expand when called upon by the coaching staff. These players will also be the pool from which the game-by-game captains are chosen.
• These players will be easily identifiable on the field of play, as they will be the only players on the team with a GRAY STRIPE down the center of their helmet.
• Six players were awarded their gray stripes on the beach in Melbourne, Fla., prior to the win over Florida Tech on Sept. 5. They are marked below with asterisks.

• The trip from Newberry College to Palm Bay Magnet High School in Melbourne, Fla., is a 506-mile trip one-way.

• It was also Newberry’s first road win over an opponent in the Gulf South Conference.

CLARK NAMED PRESEASON ALL-AMERICAN
• Newberry College senior punter Kyle Clark has been named a second team preseason All-American by D2Football.com.

• He led the league and earned the SAC Statistical Championship with a 39.3 yards per punt average on 54 punts. His 64-yard punt against Lenoir-Rhyne was the longest punt in the conference this season. Clark had seven punts over 50 yards and 30 punts inside the opponents’ 20-yardline, while no other punter in the Super Region had more than 22 punts inside the opponents’ 20.

10 WOLVES ON PRESEASON ALL-SAC TEAM

• Newberry College is extremely pleased to have one of the longest running media affiliations in the nation with hometown broadcaster WKDK-AM 1240.
• WKDK has broadcast the scarlet and gray since the station’s inception in October 1946, marking the 69th year of Newberry football on the airwaves
 Play-by-play man Jimmie Coggins is a 1974 graduate of Newberry College and is in his 33rd season of broadcasting the scarlet and gray
• Coggins is the longest tenured active broadcaster in the South Atlantic Conference, with 16 years more experience than his nearest competition (Brian Stayton, Tusculum, 17th season).
• Coggins was inducted into the Newberry College Athletic Hall of Fame in August 2013.

NEWBERRY IN THE NFL
• Newberry College is one of the most represented Division II schools in the NFL, with two former players currently on active rosters, one on a practice squad and another likely to be picked up.
• Former Newberry receiver and NFL tight end Brandon Bostick was waived by the Minnesota Vikings last week. He was picked up by the Arizona Cardinals for their practice squad.
Corey Washington was waived by the New York Giants via an injury settlement. He is currently a free agent as of midnight Tuesday.
Ron Parker signed a five-year contract with the Kansas City Chiefs in the off-season which is reportedly worth a total of $30 million. He is listed as a starter at strong safety for the Chiefs.

DOUBLE TROUBLE
• With the success on the ground of both Kevin Miller and Raleigh Yeldell, the Wolves had two 100-yard rushers in the same game since Alex Haynes (118 yards) and Josh Stepp (112 yards) in a loss at Morehead State on September 10, 2005.
• Miller (121 yards) and Yeldell (113 yards) each passed their counterparts in the rushing category
• It was the first 100-yard rushing game for both players.

COOL RUNNINGS
• Newberry quarterback Raleigh Yeldell has played in two seasons in a limited role and one game as the undisputed starting quarterback, but he is already approaching the upper echelon of scarlet and gray signal callers in terms of rushing yardage (cont. on next page)
• Yeldell currently has a net of 910 career rushing yards on 169 career carries. He needs only 90 net rushing yards to become the fourth Newberry QB to rush for 1,000 yards in his career.
• Tim Singleton is the all-time QB rushing leader with 1,413 career rushing yards from 1989-92.
• Josh Stepp rushed for 1,172 yards from 2003-06, and recently departed QB W.T. Murden just ticked over the millenial mark at 1,003 career rushing yards.
