College Corner
"Shoremen at the Next Level"

September 3, 2006

Andrew Means opened his college football career with a bang on Saturday,  snagging a 10 yard TD pass from Blake Powers on Indiana’s opening drive.   Means, who was redshirted last year, finished with two catches for 26 yards as the Hoosiers downed Western Michigan 39-20.  Congratulations to Andrew from everyone back here in Shoremen country!  In Saturday’s other action:

·       Means’ old running mate and fellow redshirt freshman Trey Stross caught a pass for six yards, made a tackle on a kickoff, and partially blocked a punt for Iowa as the Hawkeyes beat up on Montana by a score of 41-7.  Click here for a photo of the punt block!

·       Mount Union strong safety Matt Kostelnik recorded two tackles as the Purple Raiders annihilated Washington & Jefferson 64-7.

·       Jon Schroeder carried 11 times for 33 yards as his Ashland Eagles fell to 5th ranked Saginaw Valley State by a 27-16 count.


On a sadder note, sophomore tackle Ian Pace of Fordham will miss this season after knee surgery.  OSU’s fifth year senior LB Mike D’Andrea is also scheduled for a knee operation, on Monday September 11.  Prayers & best wishes to both of these guys!
