• Yeldell has 1,171 yards of total offense through three games. Prior to this year, only 47 players in the history of Newberry football have surpassed 1,000 yards of total offense in a single season.

• Yeldell needs 299 yards of total offense today to tie Tim Singleton, a quarterback and wide receiver from 1989-92, for fifth in Newberry history with 5,078 yards.

• Yeldell set career highs in rushing yards (141) and rushing touchdowns (3) at NGU.

• Newberry has scored 14 touchdowns so far this season, seven on the ground and seven through the air.

• The Wolves’ defense did not record an interception against North Greenville for the first time this season. Newberry still leads the SAC and is ninth nationally with six interceptions.

• Linebacker Joe Blue ranks sixth in the league in both solo tackles (14) and total tackles (23). He has also been credited with three passes defended, including an interception vs. Virginia Union and two pass breakups.

• Jamarcus Henderson’s three tackles for loss place him in a tie for eighth in the league.

• Newberry has outgained its opponents in all three games this season.

• The Pioneers began playing football in 1901, discontinued the program after the 1950 season, and reinstated it in 1991. Newberry has been playing football consecutively since 1913.
