Here’s a list of our grads playing college football this year.  Please email me with any corrections.

·       Ian Pace is a senior offensive tackle at Fordham. Ian played in ten games for the Patriot League champion  Rams last year, including 3 starts.  So far in 2008 he has played in all three games, starting in last Saturday’s 29-22 win over Columbia in which the Rams offense rolled up 476 total yards.

·       Andrew Means is a redshirt junior wide receiver at Indiana.  In his first two years Andrew collected 68 receptions for 822 yards.  In three games this year he has 14 catches for 206 yards.  Andrew also had a stellar baseball career at I.U. as a three year starting outfielder, earning All Big Ten honors the last two years.  In June Andrew was drafted by the Cincinnati Reds and spent the summer playing for their Billings, Montana farm team.  In his last game before returning to Indiana for football, Means had two home runs & seven RBI’s to lead Billings to their league’s first-half championship.

·       Trey Stross is a redshirt junior wideout at Iowa.  In spot duty as a freshman Trey had 12 catches for 142 yards and one touchdown, plus a blocked punt and numerous tackles on special teams.
