Dave Butz Set for Sept. 27 NFF Hall of Fame On-Campus Salute

IRVING, Texas  (Sept. 25, 2014) – Purdue and The National Football Foundation (NFF) & College Hall of Fame announced today that they will jointly honor Dave Butz with an NFF Hall of Fame On-Campus Salute Sept. 27 in West Lafayette during the game between Purdue and Iowa. Coverage of the game will start at Noon ET on the Big Ten Network.

“This is indeed a great honor,” Butz said in a Purdue release after the announcement in May. “There are a lot of great ball players in the College Football Hall of Fame, and I am very pleased to be a part of it. I had an outstanding group of teammates at Purdue, and I'm very happy to represent them and the university.”

Dave Butz   Purdue Hall of Fame, College Football HOF
The NFF Hall of Fame On-Campus Salute program is a hallowed tradition that began with the inaugural class in 1951, and to this day the salutes remain the first of numerous activities in each inductee’s Hall of Fame experience. During the NFF Hall of Fame On-Campus Salutes, each inductee returns to his alma mater to accept a Hall of Fame plaque that will remain on permanent display at the institution. The events take place on the field during a home game, and many inductees cite the experience as the ultimate capstone to their careers, providing them one more chance to take the field and hear the crowd roar their name.

A member of Purdue’s All-Time Team, defensive stalwart Butz earned First Team All-America honors during his Hall of Fame career as a Boilermaker from 1970-72.

“Dave Butz was a force to be reckoned with on the football field,” said NFF President and CEO
Steve Hatchell. “His size and athletic ability allowed him to terrorize offensive linemen during his Boilermaker career. We are thrilled to honor him in front of the Purdue faithful at Ross-Ade Stadium.”

Q's Hornet Buzz

September 26, 2014

WINCHESTER, Va. – Sophomore Qlyl Middelijn is in his first year of blogging about the football team. This week, in his fourth edition of the "Huddle Buzz", Q recaps a big victory
#18 Qlyl Middelijn
this past Saturday night.

Shutting out Ferrum 45-20 is a massive confidence boost for the team. We battled long and hard for 60 minutes last Saturday night against a tough opponent. The game didn't come down to what Ferrum did or how the referees officiated the game, it came down to what we needed to do to win.
We prepared physically and mentally for the game. Sophomore Deshon Brown caught two touchdown passes and freshman Josh White was named ODAC defensive Player of the Week after snagging two interceptions.
The offense produced 552 yards with 420 on the ground. The last time SU Football produced this amount of offense was back in 2004 in the championship-clinching contest against Methodist.
The Hornets came out hungry and won at home.
This week is our bye week and our main focus as a team has been to take care of our bodies. Coach Yoder emphasizes the importance of maintaining our health - he encourages us to visit the athletic trainers and get any and everything done to ensure we will be 100% for our rivalry game against Bridgewater next Saturday night.
Bridgewater will not be taken lightly, as we have an extra week of time to prepare for them. This is a break for us because BC had its bye last week and will only have one week to prepare for us.
This will be our first ODAC game and we encourage everyone to come out and show your support. This will be a tough battle but all battles are tough. We will come out victorious.
Go Hornets!

Shenandoah runs over Ferrum by Shenandoah Athletic Department

WINCHESTER, Va. – Shenandoah University posted a school record offensive performance in a 45-20 non-league football victory over Ferrum College Saturday night.
The Hornets (2-1) gained a school record 552 yards in offense, eclipsing the mark of 534 versus Methodist University in the 2004 regular season finale.
The vast majority of this total - 420 yards - came on the ground and just missed the school record in this category as well. Shenandoah fell four yards short of matching the rushing total from the '04 contest, and had actually had surpassed the record on its final drive, but lost 12 yards on a fumbled punt snap with 66 seconds left in the game.
This was the final offensive play of the game for SU.
Coach Scott Yoder's club earned its second non-conference victory of the season, and will complete the non-conference portion of its schedule with a winning record for just the second time in school history, by scoring on its opening drive of both halves.
In the first, Shenandoah drove 49 yards in nine plays, finishing with a Kye Hopkins 1-yard run, to make it 7-0 at the 10:21 mark.
A Deshon Brown 16-yard TD reception from Drew Ferguson made it 14-0 at the 11:09 mark of the second before Ferrum (0-2) answered with an eight-play, 81-yard drive to make it 14-7 in favor of the hosts with 8:00 to play in the half.
The two teams traded a pair of touchdowns late in the quarter, with the Panthers missing their PAT, to put the score at 21-13 at the half.
SU then asserted control to start the third quarter, driving 68 yards in seven plays to take a 28-13 lead.
The Hornets lead would not fall below 11 points the rest of the way.
A 14-point fourth quarter turned the game into a rout as Ferguson scampered in on a 16-yard run at 8:21 before finding Miles Green on a four-yard pass 54 seconds later.
Both scoring drives were started thanks to Josh White interceptions.
Shenandoah rolled up 552 yards in total offense with Cedrick Delaney and Ferguson both rushing for at least 100 yards.
Delaun Richardson missed joining those two by just two yards.
Delaney had 130 yards on 22 carries and Ferguson 112 on nine. Ferguson was also 12 of 21 for 132 yards passing.
Michael Messick had 10 tackles for a defense that held Ferrum to just 163 yards on the ground.
SU has its bye week next week and returns to action on October 4 at Bridgewater in the squad's ODAC opener.

LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. – The Washington Redskins announced today that head football coach Kenneth Amaker of Central High School in Capitol Heights, Md. has been named the Redskins High School Coach of the Week for the week of Sept. 22.

In the off-season, Coach Amaker assists with local youth leagues’ programs that feed into Central High School and is also on the Maryland High School Football Coaches Association.

Q's Hornet Buzz

WINCHESTER, Va. – Sophomore Qlyl Middelijn is in his first season of blogging about the football program. This week, Q recaps a tough second week of the season for the squad.
Qlyl Middlelijn  #18  WR
Last Saturday's loss against new opponent Frostburg State really put some doubt in a few players. After winning the first game we were all amped and felt like we could never lose again, but the loss to Frostburg brought us back down to Earth and made us realize that it is extremely hard to win college football games.
We are a better team than last year and we are still proving it to the SU community and ourselves. We can't hang our heads over one game; Frostburg is over and now it's time to prepare for Ferrum.
Throughout the week we have fixed the mistakes made against FSU and eliminated them completely from our minds. Taking one game at a time is how we will succeed on Saturdays. Looking back and focusing on why we didn't win will not help us get the 'W' for tomorrow's game.
Practices have always been intense, but this week Coach Yoder added something new and different to the practice schedule. At the end of practice, the offense attempts to score on the defense. If the offense is successful in scoring within two drives down the field, the defense has to do up-downs with the offense returning the favor in the event they don't score.
This drill increased the competitiveness of the players. Offense succeeded and scored on every drive this week. That's the kind of excitement we need to stay hungry and excited for the game against Ferrum. We will stay hungry but also humble on Saturday night. We cannot step out on the field already thinking this will be an easy win. If and when we win, it will be because we have prepared physically and mentally for this game.
The Hornets will be dressed in all RED for the game; we encourage every student to wear red for the game to show your support.
Go Hornets!  #RedDawn
