Collect D3Football.com All-Region

Honors


TIFFIN, Ohio-Heidelberg University sophomore two-time All-Ohio Athletic
Conference running back Germany Woods (Cleveland/Lakewood St. Edward) was
named to the D3Football.com All-North Region first team and fifth-year head
coach Mike Hallett was named North Region coach of the year, announced
Monday by D3Football.com.
Coach Hallett

For Woods, his selection comes following a record-breaking season in which
he was selected to the All-OAC first-team.

Hallett was also tabbed be his peers as the OAC coach of the year for the
second time and is also the 2011 OhioCollegeFootball.com Division III coach
of the year.  Hallett, who was the North Region coach of the year in 2007
following his first season at Heidelberg, is the fourth OAC head coach since
2005 to win the award.

Woods, who was a first-team All-OAC pick this season, led the OAC during the
regular season and set the school single-season record with 1,421 rushing
yards yards-breaking the previous record by 90 yards in 68 less carries-and
scored 11 touchdowns.  He had his best game against Marietta College (Oct.
22) when he rushed a career-high 34 times for a season-high 226 yards and
two scores.  He also rushed for a season-high three TDs in a season-ending
win against Ohio Northern University (Nov. 12).

Woods went over the century mark in rushing in eight of 10 games this season
and has accomplished the feat in 12 of his past 14 contests dating back to
2010.  In 20 career games, Woods has totaled 2,455 yards in 397 attempts,
scored 21 TDs and averages 122.8 yards per game.


Hallett, who took over a program that went 15-85 in the 10 years prior to
his arrival, including a 1-39 stretch from 2003-06, led the Berg to an 8-2
record in 2011-its best mark since 1993-and a tie for second place in the
league standings.  The Student Princes' 7-2 OAC record matched that of the
1993 team as well.

Hallett's recruiting class of 2008-his second to go through four years in
the program-posted a four-year mark of 21-19, besting his 2007 class by four
games.

In 2011, the Student Princes ranked among the top three in the OAC in 11
statistical categories and led the league in five areas, including rushing
offense, sacks allowed and kickoff returns.

Hallett, who was also named OAC coach of the year in 2007, is 25-25 in five
seasons at Heidelberg and 40-40 in eight seasons as a head coach.

Baldwin-Wallace Senior Defensive End Derron 

Hamilton Named to D3football.com All-North 

Region Team

BEREA, OHIO -- Baldwin-Wallace College senior defensive end Derron Hamilton (Euclid) has been named second-team D3football.com (www.d3football.com) All-North Region team (announced Tuesday, December 6, 2011).  This marks the first All-Region selection in his career.


Hamilton, a sport management major, was a three-year varsity contributor who had his best season as a collegian this fall. He had a career-high 39 tackles, including an Ohio Athletic Conference-leading 15 tackles for loss and 11.0 quarterback sacks for minus 80 yards. His 11 QB sacks ranks fourth in Division III and were two shy of tying a B-W single-season record. He also recovered two fumbles and had one pass breakup. Hamilton ends his career with 75 tackles, including 20.5 tackles for losses and 15.5 QB sacks. He was named as the OAC Defensive Player of the Week for his three and one-half sack effort in a 17-7 win at Marietta College.

The Yellow Jackets had an outstanding season and finished with a record of 8-2 overall and finished second in the OAC with a 7-2 mark.


CSU to take on Robert Morris before returning 


home


Cleveland State concludes its current seven game road swing when the Vikings travel to Robert Morris for a 7:00 p.m. contest on Thursday (Dec. 8). CSU, which has gone 5-1 on its current roadtrip and is 5-0 in true road games this season, enters the contest at 8-1 overall after winning league games at Wright State (45-43) and Detroit (66-61) last weekend. Robert Morris is 7-2 overall following a 64-60 win over Duquesne on Tuesday (Dec. 6). This will be the 12th all-time meeting between the two schools with RMU holding a 6-5 advantage in the series. CSU won last year's meeting in Cleveland, 58-53, snapping a three game win streak by the Colonials.


PREVIEWING THE VIKINGS: Sixth-year head coach Gary Waters is combining an experienced group of upperclassmen with one of the most talented freshman classes in school history as the Vikings set out to win a second straight Horizon League title. The strength of the team is at the guards where seniors Trey Harmon and Jeremy Montgomery return after starting all 36 games last season. They are joined in the backcourt by freshmen Sebastian Douglas and Charlie Lee. Senior D'Aundray Brown returns to the lineup after missing last season with a finger injury to man the small forward spot with freshmen Marlin Masonand Ike Nwamu ready to step in and provide minutes. Senior Aaron Pogue returns as the starting center with junior Tim Kamczyc back at the power forward slot. Sophomores Devon Long and Luda Ndaye and freshman Anton Grady add depth to the frontcourt.

\

IN THE POLLS: With an 8-1 mark to start the season, Cleveland State has received recognition in the national polls for the fourth straight week. The Vikings earned nine points in the Associated Press Top-25 to check in 35th overall (10th among Others Receiving Votes). In addition, the Vikings received three votes in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll, good for 41st overall in the rankings (16th among Others Receiving Votes).


VIKINGS STAY AT #5 IN MID-MAJOR POLL: Cleveland State remained at No. 5 for the second straight week in the CollegeInsider.com Mid Major Top 25 poll that was released on Monday (Dec. 5) afternoon. The Vikings received 618 votes. Creighton moved up to the No. 1 spot with 28 first place votes and 772 points and was followed by Harvard (730 points, 1 first place vote), Iona (684), Gonzaga (676 points, 1 first place vote) and Cleveland State.. Last season, CSU began the season ranked 25th in the poll before working its way up to the No. 1 ranking on Dec. 6 where CSU stayed for five weeks.


CHAMPIONSHIP SATURDAY: Saturday's home game against Akron is being dubbed "Championship Saturday" as the Vikings will honor three Horizon League championship squads from the 2010-11 season. First up will be the men's basketball team which will raise the 2011 Horizon League Championship and 2011 NIT banners to the rafters. At the under 12 minute media timeout in the first half, the men's golf team will be honored for capturing the 2011 Horizon League title. The 2011 Horizon League men's tennis team will be honored at the under 12 minute media timeout in the second half.


WHAT CAN BROWN DO FOR YOU?: Quite frankly, he can play defense. A member of the 2010 Horizon League All-Defense team, Brown has quickly shown that he is one of the top defensive players in the league, ranking first in the league and second in the nation in steals (3.4 spg; 31 total). A deeper look into Brown's defensive efforts shows that he has shut down the top scorers on several teams this year, including the following...

PLAYER (SCHOOL)                  FG -FGA      Points     PPG at Time of Game 
Carlton Guyton (Kent State)         3-9                8              12.0
Mike Moore (Hofstra)                    2-7                5               20.5
Jamal Wilson (Rhode Island)     4-8                 8              19.8
Chase Simon (Detroit)                  2-5                6              17.6


FUTURE CSU HOOPS LUNCHEONS: The first of four CSU Hoops Luncheons took place on Nov. 14 with Viking basketball fans having the opportunity to get updates from CSU basketball head coaches Gary Waters and Kate Peterson Abiad throughout the 2011-12 season. Hosted by Munch Bishop of WKNR, the luncheons begin at 11:30 a.m. on the fifth floor Viking Loge of the Wolstein Center. Future luncheons will be held on Wednesday, Dec. 14, Tuesday, Jan. 17 and Monday, Feb. 13. Cost of admission is $12 with a reservation or $15 at the door and includes a buffet luncheon and beverages. Tables for eight can also be reserved for $96.00. Reservations can be made by calling (216) 687-5119.


VIKINGS DON'T GIVE UP "3": Cleveland State is ranked first in the nation in three-point field goal percentage defense, with opponents hitting just .202 (22-109) from three-point against the Vikings. Over the last seven games, opponents are shooting just 7-for-66 (.106) from long range against CSU with none of the seven teams making more than two three's in a game. In a win at Rhode Island (Nov. 27), the Vikings held the Rams to an 0-for-8 effort from three-point, the 14th time in program history that a team failed to make a three-pointer against CSU and the first since Dec. 17, 1996, against Youngstown State.


GOOD WEEKEND FOR KAMCZYC: Junior Tim Kamczyc helped the Vikings open Horizon League play with two wins over the weekend, averaging 12.0 points and 6.0 rebounds in wins at Wright State and Detroit. He was the only player from either team to reach double figures at WSU, scoring 12 points with seven rebounds, and came back with 12 points and five boards in Saturday's win at Detroit. It marked the first time in Kamczyc's career that he registered back-to-back double figure scoring games.


NCAA STATS: Cleveland State is well represented in the latest NCAA statistical report that was released on Monday (Dec. 5). As a team, CSU is first in the country in three-point field goal defense (.202), eighth in steals (10.2), 13th in turnover margin (5.6) and 19th in scoring defense (56.2). Individually, D'Aundray Brown is second in the nation in steals (3.4), while Anton Grady is 98th in blocked shots (1.7).


A NOVEMBER TO REMEMBER: The Vikings went 6-1 in November this year, the second best November in program history. It is topped only by last year's 8-0 mark in November, giving CSU a 14-1 mark during the last two November's.


DECEMBER NOT TOO SHABBY: After going 6-1 in December last year, the Vikings have picked up right where they left off last year, winning their first two games in December this year to improve to 8-1 over the last two December's. Including Thursday's game at Robert Morris, CSU will play six more games this month.


DEFENSE!! DEFENSE!!: Defense has always been a staple in the CSU program under head coach Gary Waters and this year has been no different. CSU has forced at least 20 turnovers in five of nine games and 19 and 17 in two others, forcing 181 total. As a team, the Vikings rank first in the Horizon League scoring defense (56.2), three point FG defense (.202), steals (10.2) and turnover margin (+5.6).


DOWN TO THE WIRE: CSU has had some exciting finishes this season with three games coming down to the final seconds. In a 67-64 win over St. Bonaventure, Trey Harmon nailed the game-winning three-pointer with 2.8 seconds left. In a 63-62 win over Boston (Nov. 25), CSU scored five points in the final six seconds to rally from a nine point second half deficit. The final two points were scored at the free throw line by Jeremy Montgomery after he stole the inbounds pass and was fouled with 3.4 seconds left. Thursday's Horizon League opener at Wright State was capped with a tip-in by D'Aundray Brown with 0.3 seconds left.


HARMON NETS 1,000th POINT: Senior Trey Harmon became the 20th player in CSU history to score 1,000 career points when he finished with five points on Dec. 1 at Wright State. He scored 135 points as a freshman, 314 as a sophomore and 474 last season.

... AND BROWN CLOSING IN: D'Aundray Brown also has the 1,000 point mark in sights. He enters Thursday's contest with 737 career points and ranks seventh in the league at 13.4 points per game this year.


MONTGOMERY ALREADY THERE: With his six points against Rio Grande on Nov. 15, Jeremy Montgomery became the 19th player in school history to score 1,000 career points. Montgomery, who has 1,072 career points, ranks 17th on the all-time scoring list at CSU. The Vikings have never had three players reach 1,000 career points in the same season.


J-MO'S DROPPING DIMES: In his first season as the primary point guard, senior Jeremy Montgomery has been performing at a high-level. The Chicago native is ranked fifht in the league with 3.4 assists per game, highlighted by a career-high tying eight dimes in a win at Rhode Island on Nov. 27.

"We are so excited to have Martha and Jenny joining the Women's Storm Swimming Program," said Head Coach Nicole Rose.  "Both ladies had excellent seasons during their senior year and I feel they can make an immediate impact for our women's team.   They each individually made a great deal of progress during their senior seasons and I am very much looking forward to coaching them." 



"Both Jenny and Martha have done a terrific job in the classroom as well, so they both truly are the full package when we speak in terms of being student-athletes," Rose continued.  "They will have no trouble transitioning to the requirements that will be asked of them as Storm swimmers and they are the perfect fit within our growing program."
