Mount Union Picked to Repeat as OAC Football 

Champion

Mount Union was picked to repeat the feat this fall at the annual OAC Footbatball Media Day on August 10 at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio,

The Purple Raiders, who finished with a perfect 10-0 record during the regular season last year and advanced to the semifinals ofthe NCAA Division fltpiayoffs, dominated both the coaches' and media polls. Mount Union garnered eight first-place votes and 90 points in the coaches' poll and.received 37 of the possible 39 first-place votes in the media  in totaling 388 points.


"I think the polls reflect the fact that we have some well-known players returning," Mount Union head coach Larry Kehres said, "but we have several offensive linemen and linebackers to replace this season. I appreciate the confidence in the players the coaches and media have shown, but our challenge will be to put the polls aside and keep our mind set on each practice, each meeting and each game."

Mount Union returns 36 lettermen overall and 14 starters from last year's squad, including four all-Americans: senior quarterback Jim Ballard, senior tight end Rob Atwood, senior defensive tackle Mike Hallett and junior wide receiver Sean Lyons.

The coaches' and medi a polls were identical from first through 10th place. Baldwin-Wallace was picked to finish second, followed by John Carroll ,Ohio Northern, Muskingum, Heidelberg, Marietta, Otterbein, Capital and Hiram, respectively.

SPECIAL TO THE ELYRIA CHRONICLE-TELEGRAM

THREE AREA BALDWIN-WALLACE COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYERS NAMED AS POSSIBLE •

ALL-AMERICANS BY TWO NATIONAL DIVISION III PUBLICATIONS

BEREA, OHIO -- The traditionally strong Baldwin-Wallace College football program has been honored by national small college publications by having nine players named as possible 1992 NCAA Division III All-Americans. The "Small College Football Preview" and the Don Hansen's "Football Gazette" each have listed nine B-W players as potential bests at their respective positions. 

Three Chronicle-Telegram area players, John Koz (Jr., QB, Lakewood, Oh. High School), Constantine ' , Gus' , Patouhas (Sr., DT/DE, Elyria, Oh. LaGrange Keystone H.S.) and Dennis Neate (Sr., ILB, Sandusky, Oh. Perkins H.S.), are part of that group. 

Koz, a "Football Gazette" and Champion USA All-American in 1991, was third in passing efficiency in Division III. He completed 173 of 271 aerials for school records of 2,177 yards and 21 touchdowns. He was a first-team All-OAC pick and the OAC's Most Valuable Offensive Back (first time ever sophomore honored). Koz transferred to B-W from Division I-AA Marshall University as a freshman. In addition, he carries a 3.2 grade point average in the classroom in business administration.

"John is an outstanding young man and football quarterback," said veteran B-W head coach Bob Packard. "He has great talent and leadership abilities with the potential to help our football team this season.

"John has matured a great deal since coming to B-W, and he knows our offensive system well," said Packard. "It is an accolade that John is very desrving of, and we hope he can play up to that honor this season. We are looking forward to his return in 1992."

While at L.H.S., Koz played four years of football and basketball, lettering three times in ea::11 sport. In football, Koz was the Lake Erie League Most Valuable Player as a junior and senior while also earning All-Ohio honors as a senior. He threw for more than 4,600 yards as a scholastic quarterback. 

In basketball, Koz was All-LEL as a junior and senior and averaged 18 points and nine rebounds per game as a senior. Koz is the son of Arlene Koz of 1078 Homewood Drive in Lakewood. 

Patouhas, a "Football Gazette" All-American last year, is a player who can play either tackle or end on the defensive front four. In 1991, he made 51 tackles with three QB sacks, one forced fumble, one recovered fumble and six forced bad passes by ppposing QB's. He earned as starting spot midway through his sophomore season. Patouhas transferred to B-W from Ohio Northern University

following his freshman season of college.

In addition, Patouhas, a sports management major with a 3.0 grade point average, has earned two varsity letters, has been on the Dean's List and works in the B-W sports information office.

SPECIAL TO ALL B-W SPORTS MEDIA OUTLETS

FIVE B-W FOOTBALL PLAYERS NOMINATED FOR

NCAA DIVISION III ALL-AMERICA HONORS

BEREA, OHIO -- Five Baldwin-Wallace College football players, quarterback John Koz (Lakewood, Ohio High School), wide receiver Lance Yandell (Chesterland, Oh. and West Geauga H.S.), center Tom Garfield (Cleveland Heights, Oh. H.S.), outside linebacker Jim Clardy (Newark, Oh.and Licking Valley H.S.) and defensive tackle Kevin Stedman (Newark, Oh. and Licking Valley H.S.), have been nominated for 1992 NCAA Division III All-America accolades. The five will be nominees to the Associated Press Little All-America, Champion-USA and Don Hansen's Football Gazette teams.

Koz and Clardy were All-Americans in 1991 and were the leaders of the B-W offense and defense, respectively this season. Both were first-team preseason All-America picks by four different publications. Yandell and Garfield entered the 1992 campaign as pre-season All-Americans. Stedman had an outstanding senior season.

The five led B-W to an 8-2 overall and 7-2 record in the rugged Ohio Athletic Conference. The Yellow Jackets were ranked regionally and nationally all season.

During the past two years, the five have led B-W to a 18-3 overall mark, an OAC title and an NCAA Div. III national playoff berth. They each had an outstanding season in 1992 and a fine career overall.

Koz again set school records in 1992 for passing yardage and touchdowns in a season with 2,382 yards and 22 TDs as he coinpleted 182 of 293 passes. In 25 career games as the Yellow Jacket QB, Koz has passed for school records of 5,271 yards and 46 TDs with just 15 interceptions. He has had streaks of 79, 99 and 110 passes without being intercepted. He was third in Division III in passing efficiency in 1991 and fourth this year. With Koz at the controls in 1992, B-W averaged 385.4 yards and 34.7 points per game. He has led B-W to a 22-3 record as a starter.

Clardy won the Bill Edwards Outstanding Linebacker Award in the OAC for the second straight season. He led B -W in tackles for the second consecutive year as well.

The 6-2, 215-pounder recorded 75 tackles (41 solo stops) with five quarterback sacks, two caused fumbles, two recovered fumbles, an interception and three pass breakups. He had 209 career tackles, including a team-leading 100 stops a year ago.

With Clardy at linebacker the past two years, the B-W defense allowed just 226 yards and 12 points per game. Yandell has led B-W in receiving the past two years. In 1992, Yandell caught 51 passes for786 yards and six TDs. His 51 catches were one shy of the Yellow Jacket single-season school record of 52. During his two-year career (he transferred to B-W after playing two years at Mercyhurst), Yandell caught 93 passes for 1,408 yards and 13 TDs. In 1992, with Yandell as its key receiver, the B-W passing game averged 242.9 yards per game. Individually, his six-foot, five-inch frame and outstanding athletic ability gave him a distinct advantage against smaller defensive backs.Garfield anchored a Yellow Jacket offensive line that allowed Koz time to pass and B-W runners room to move. During his three years as a starter and two years as a first-team All-OAC selection, B-W averaged 400 yards in offense and 32.5 points per game with Garfield in the trenches.

Stedman led all B-W defensive linemen with 63 tackles, five QB sacks, three caused and two recovered fumbles (including one return for a TD), three pass deflections and six forced bad passes. He anchored a line that allowed opponents just 109,5 yards per game rushing and 12.9 points per game.

BEREA, OHIO -- The traditionally strong Baldwin-Wallace College football program has been honored by national small college publications by having nine players named as possible 1992 NCAA Division III All-Americans.

The "Small College Football Preview" and the Don Hansen's "Football Gazette" each have listed nine B-W players as potential bests at their respective positions.

Returning All-Americans John Koz (Jr., QB, Lakewood, Ch. High School), Jim Clardy (Sr., OLB, Newark, Oh. Licking Valley H.S.), Chuck Geiss (Sr., RB, Columbiana Crestview H.S.), Mike Barbetta (Jr., PK, Akron/St.Vincent-St.Mary H.S.) and Constantine "Gus" Patouhas (Sr., DT/DE, Elyria, Oh.

Koz, Geiss, Patouhas and Neate also have been tabbed as possible Academic All-American candidates by the "Small College Football Preview".

The nine Yellow jacket veterans will be part of a group of 32 lettermen and 13 starters that return after compiling a 10-1 overall and 9-0 Ohio Athletic Conference mark last year. B-W will seek a second straight OAC title and berth in the NCAA Division III Playoffs in 1992. B-W last won the NCAA Division III national title in 1978.

Koz, a "Football Gazette" and Champion USA All-American in 1991, was third in passing efficiency in Division III. He completed 173 of 271 aerials for school records of 2,177 yards and 21 touchdowns. He was a first-team All-OAC pick and the OAC's Most Valuable Offensive Back (first time ever sophomore honored).

In that span, he has nailed 70-of-72 extra points and 16-of-22 field goal attempts and led the Yellow Jackets in scoring each year.

In 1991, he made 51 tackles with three QB sacks, one forced fumble, one recovered fumble and six forced bad passes by opposing QB's. Garfield, who joins Geiss as B-W's offensive captains in 1992, is a two-year starter and a returning first-team All-OAC player.

He also was a CoSIDA-GTE Academic All-District IV pick and has been selected as a pre-season All-American by the "Small College Football Preview" the past two years. In addition, Neate is the B-W Student Body President.

Yandell returns as B-W's top receiver. He caught 42 passes for 622 yards and seven touchdowns in 1991. With his six-foot five-inch frame, Yandell has re-liable hands and fine athletic ability to catch the ball in traffic. He transferred to B-W from Mercyhurst (PA) College.

Nye returns as B-W's best player in the secondary. A "devastating hitter", Nye made 65 tackles, caused a fumble, has two interceptions and nine pass breakups last season.

The Yellow Jackets open the season on Saturday, September 12 in Springfield, Ohio against longtime Division III rival Wittenberg University at 1:30 p.m. B-W and Wittenberg are tied 19-19-1 in the all-time series with this being the last regularly scheduled date between the two powers in the near future.
