NationStates College Football - Season 26

Image


Breathe deep and take it all in as the tubas' rumbles reverberate through all the iconic campus stadia again. Each one, packed with generations of alumni returning to partake in the traditions of their beloved alma mater, is ready for that combustion of kinky action. The poppin' aromas of molly-popcorn and beer sift out through the bleachers full of marijuana smoke. The bright lights shine down on armoured teams battling under the night sky, school bragging rights and a gruelling summer of work on the line. Ah, yes. It's college football season. Glory, Drama, Pride.

The twenty-sixth edition of NationStates College Football is upon us. In this thread, you will post your team's roster and all in-character roleplays. These can be game reports, character dialogues, or really anything you like. Any out-of-character questions should be directed towards the discussion thread or telegram.



With 42 entrants, there will be seven conferences and each will have six teams.
12 teams will make the Playoffs: the seven conference champions, the three highest-ranked schools ranked by OSPI and, finally, two wildcards selected by the NSCF Committee. These 12 teams will then be seeded in the bracket purely by OSPI. Higher seeds will have home advantage until the final, which will take place at a neutral venue. Any nation can put together a bid to host the NSCF Championship (IC only) before the start of Non-Conference week, when it will then be voted on by the NSCF Committee.

New and returning players alike are encouraged to familiarise themselves with the NSCF procedure here. The regular season will be double round-robin, for a total of 10 games. Games will be scorinated three times a week: on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. Scores will be posted in this thread at a time determined by each conference's designated scorer. After the ten-game conference schedule, there will be a "Non-Conference Week", with each team playing up to three games against opposition from other conferences. These games will not count toward conference championships, but WILL affect playoff seedings. All Non-Conference games must be arranged by the teams playing them (you can use the discussion thread for this). Once confirmed by BOTH parties, match-ups should be telegrammed to NSCF to be added to the schedule.


Bowls
In addition to the playoffs, there also a few consolation bowl games for teams that do not reach the postseason. If your nation proposes a bowl game to host, you are responsible for inviting the teams yourself if it does not have automatic parameters for selection. The Pioneer Bowl is a traditional game for the two best newcomer teams not in the playoffs. After that, NSCF will not recognize any bowl game involving a team with an OSPI below 0.450.

James Arthur felt like he barely had time to breathe after the whirlwind of an offseason.

Under normal circumstances, the rebranding of the school his Mountain Climbers represented, from Woodstock City College to Woodstock University, might have been the biggest story of the offseason. The influx of recruits from other countries, which might have gotten significant attention from local media was deep on the backburner.

The reasons? Number one, Arthur had some hardware in his possession. He was the NSCF Coach of the Year after taking the Climbers to an overall 10-5 record and a 7-3 mark in the Sequoia Conference. They were two games behind Silverleaf University, who would be back in the conference, and both schools would be in the top 25 of the NSCF rankings. Even though Silverleaf dominated conference play to the tune of a 9-1 mark in the Sequoia, they flamed out badly once they played other foes. They dropped all four games including three regular season non-conference matchups and their first round playoff appearance. Combined with Universidade de Soria, which was the only team other than Woodstock to play a non-conference schedule, the three Sequoia Conference teams combined to finish a dismal 3-6 in non-conference regular season play.

In fact, if you took out the Climbers' overall 3-2 record in non-conference play and the team's unofficial Banijan national championship with two away victories against storied Banijan programmes, the Sequoia would have a 1-6 mark. As it was, Woodstock only brought that record to 4-8. The Climbers won consecutive non-conference regular season matchups including their sixth at Friedgen Stadium in six contests. They also rallied to beat eventual NSCF runners up Northern Moravica 19-16 courtesy of a clutch 56-yard field goal from Matt Andersen. They would also use a defensive stand to defeat Loyola-Istria in the first round of the playoffs before falling to eventual champions Raynor University in the quarterfinals.

For their troubles, the Climbers would enter NSCF ranked 20th, in contrast with Silverleaf's No. 23 ranking. Arthur said the ranking reflected the divergent non-conference paths of the two schools.

"It's one thing to do well in conference," Arthur told the assembled media. "It's another entirely to face off against competition you don't see twice per cycle. And it's also a different story when you're in postseason gridball."

For his part, Arthur also had to deal with the repercussions of his decision to turn down the offensive coordinator role with the Sarzonian national gridball team. Coach Gavin Davis said he would call the plays for the team after the Incorporated Gridball Federation and Arthur couldn't agree to terms on a contract for Arthur to become offensive coordinator. Arthur said he wanted to stay on as Climbers manager. The IGF told him that was a non-starter, so negotiations broke down shortly after that. For better or for worse, Arthur is back.

"I didn't want to leave this team, this school behind," he said. "I look forward to going to Friedgen Stadium every time we have a home match."

University of Alexandroupolis Redbirds
Stadium: Redbird Stadium (cap. 50,000)
Offense: Ace (3xWR, 1xTE, 1xRB)
Defense: 3-4 (3xDL, 4xLB, 4xDB)

Coaching Staff
Head Coach: Curtis Decker, 65
A collegiate legend at the University of Thebes who never made it big in the GFL, Decker has cemented his legacy by turning the Redbirds from a "basketball school" to a football dynasty. Decker’s recruiting philosophy is simple; sign the strongest physical prospects and coach them until they are technically proficient. As a result, his teams tend to be big, fast, and senior-heavy, making extensive use of redshirts and junior college signings to fill in gaps.

Offensive Coordinator: Nicholas Smith, 39
A former running back-turned-graduate assistant at the University of Thebes, Smith was the running backs coach for his alma mater for ten years before taking the job at UofA. Despite his experience in the backfield, Smith is a pass-first OC, using the running backs primarily for short-yardage situations or to throw a defense off. May is the first quarterback he’s had for four years, and he’s spent that time developing him into a poised, collected passer who can throw strikes even as the pocket collapses around him.

Defensive Coordinator: Jason van Damm, 71
An old-school coach and one of the longest-tenured employees of the University, van Damm has never been complacent and has always sought to maximize his talent. The 3-4 defense he currently runs may look vanilla, but it is deceptively complex, with a number of variations on man and zone depending on the opposing team. To help keep all this straight, he employs a defensive signal caller, as do many DCs in Gesemite football; this year it’s the free safety, Louis Tate, a junior college product who joined the Redbirds last year.

University of Constantinople Binturongs
Stadium: Ripper Stadium (40,000)
Offense: Flexbone (1xQB, 2xRB, 1xFB, 2xWR)
Defense: 4-3 monster (4xDL, 3xLB, 4xDB)

Coaching Staff
Head Coach: Josh Wilkins, 39
An ambitious coach with dreams of glory, Wilkins had just signed on as the defensive coordinator for the Haysville Jets in the GFL when the previous Binturongs head coach resigned amid the cheating scandal. Seeing an opportunity, Wilkins signed on with UC and immediately began the process of rebuilding his team. That he has put a complete team together out of transfers, walk-ons, and junior college recruits is a testament to his utter commitment and refusal to be turned down.

Offensive Coordinator: Ray Schroeder, 45
One of the only professional staff to return after the death penalty, Ray has been with the ‘rongs in some capacity since he signed for the team as an eighteen year-old student. As a player he was an undersized but tenacious wide receiver who saw a total of twenty starts across his four years on the team, but was respected for his work ethic and hustle. He signed on as a volunteer assistant coach upon graduating and has slowly worked his way up the ranks ever since, most of that time employing the same power-I formation he learned as a player. Now with the flexbone imposed on him by a new and ambitious coach, it remains to be seen if Ray can keep his job.

Defensive Coordinator: Liam Fitzgerald, 29
A secondary coach under Wilkins as DC with the Busiris Pilots a couple season ago, Fitzgerald followed his boss into the UC system, which definitely has its pros when it comes to putting a team together on a short timeline. Just as ambitious as his mentor, “Fitz” has designated former New Gesem Pilgrims standout Lee Ryan as his “monster” back, playing both linebacker and defensive back techniques. It’s a risky gamble, but one that will pay off in the end if the sophomore stays with the program.

Aturim Deephides Stonecutter School



The school was opened from legendary Aturim Deephide, a dwarven Master Stonecutter who wanted to share his skills with the young generation. It is at least a few hundred years old.


Blood Ball was a sport often played by dwarfs and only after Kriegiersien took over the lands where the dwarves lived, they came in contact with other sports. The even more ruthless and ruleless football variant Kriegiersien Football lost its appeal soon, but the Stonecutter School was one of the first to change to the international approved version, but without any major success outside of their region.

Even though they won the North Division, they lost early in the Play-offs of the National School Championship. They still took the spot for the NSCF 26 on own costs.


The Hall of Stone was build for sports by the students themselves and is the envy of all Stadiums in Kriegiersien for its architecture.


The line-ups of dwarven Football teams are since the old times pretty easy. There are players who are defending and players who attack to get the ball over the line. In case of bad injuries players have to switch between roles.
One player is responsible for kicking the ball.

Coach:
Silly Deepdottar

Torit Bonebraker (Defense-Coordinator)
Darut Fastfoot (Offense Coordinator)
Barry Bonebender (Medic)

8 Cal Barkley (SO) 6-foot-3, 210 pounds (Exercise Science), big arm, mobile quarterback. Gets impatient at times with zone defences
10 Matt Shipley (JR) 6-foot-1, 195 pounds (Electrical engineering)
13 Brad Tunney (FR) 6-foot-4, 220 pounds (Psychology)

RUNNING BACKS:
3 Bill Crotty (SR) 6-foot-3, 215 pounds (Mechanical engineering), good speed to get to the outside, could work on strength. Decent pass catcher
44 Mike Zastudil (SO) 6-foot-1, 230 pounds (Criminology), big, bruising fullback, good blocker
20 Les Cardaway (SR) 5-foot-11, 200 pounds (English), speed guy, great pass receiver out of the backfield. Comes in on third downs and the third series of each half.
34 Doc Campbell (FR) 6-foot-2, 235 pounds (History), power runner, surprisingly adept at pass catching. Capable of being an every-down back, but inexperienced

WIDE RECEIVERS:
1 Dean Spencer (FR) 5-foot-11, 185 pounds (Kiniesiology), the deep threat, an absolute burner, but not a guy you want going over the middle
2 Buddy Holcomb (SR) 6-foot-3, 210 pounds (Political science), the possession receiver, can block as well as some tight ends. He's the guy who you want catching a key third down pass
82 Dan Carraway (SO) 5-foot-9, 185 pounds (Archaeology), another deep threat, plays bigger than he is. Willing blocker, willing to get physical
87 Joyce Rodney (SR) 5-foot-7, 155 pounds (Sociology), another possession type receiver, but she's not going to go over the middle for you.
89 Ed Westwick (FR) 6-foot-3, 205 pounds (journalism), arguably best hands on the team

TIGHT ENDS:
43 Chris Callaway (SR) 6-foot-3, 245 pounds (Urban Planning), he's a blocking tight end and can occasionally catch a short pass if necessary to move the sticks
86 Fred Banks (SO) 6-foot-6, 250 pounds (Graphic Design), surprising speed allows him to be used in the passing game like you would a wide receiver.
88 Tyler Seitz (FR) 6-foot-2, 225 pounds (Undecided), former wide receiver who was asked to bulk up and has worked with tight ends to become a better blocker
47 Mike Winslow (SO) 6-foot-1, 240 pounds, has spent time at linebacker and two-way player; playing tight end full-time here

OFFENSIVE LINE (first five players are starters)
LT 71 Joe Kent (SO) 6-foot-6, 325 pounds (Culinary science)
LG 64 Matt Atta (JR) 6-foot-4, 335 pounds (Criminology)

78 DT Kelvin McKenzie (SO) 6-foot-3, 350 pounds (computer science)
79 DE LaRoy Bacon (SR) 6-foot-4, 295 pounds (communications)

LINEBACKERS (first three players are starters)
LLB 51 Harvey Kendrick (SO) 6-foot-2, 245 pounds (Sarzonian studies), good at covering tight ends or running backs if necessary
MLB 45 Clint Bostwick (SR) 6-foot-3, 250 pounds (accounting), defensive signal caller and captain
49 RLB 59 Spencer Landingham (SO) 6-foot-6, 245 pounds (business administration), able to cover or be used as an edge pass rusher

OLB 50 Reche Daniels (FR) 6-foot-4, 245 pounds (Special education), sometimes brought in if the Climbers choose to use a 3-4 defence
OLB 51 Cliff Yost (SO) 6-foot-4, 250 pounds (primary education), primarily used for run support. Not as good at pass coverage but can get after the quarterback
MLB 58 Keion Fletcher (JR) 6-foot-3, 238 pounds (applied mathematics), started five games while Bostwick was academically ineligible and the Climbers never missed a beat.

CORNERBACKS (First two start; others are brought in on nickel/other situations)
1 Pete Carter (FR) 6-foot-3, 210 pounds (early childhood education), often covers either the best receiver or the biggest wide receiver on the other team
2 Dontrell Haskins (SO) 5-foot-9, 186 pounds (civil engineering), can cover another team's fastest receiver and keep up with them

22 Joey Canterling (JR) 5-foot-11, 195 pounds (undecided, business), first off the bench when the Climbers need to play with five defensive backs
23 Jordan Curtis (SR) 6-foot, 200 pounds (medical assisting), converted from safety, can play back there in an emergency
34 Brian Davis (SR) 6-foot-4, 210 pounds (comparative religion), mainly used when the Climbers need to go with six defensive backs

SAFETIES (First two start)
FS 40 Joey Rivers (SR) 6-foot-3, 200 pounds; if neither middle linebacker is in the game, he can call the defensive signals
26 SS Patrick Clayton (SR) 6-foot-1, 210 pounds; pound for pound the strongest player on the team

FS 35 Travis Nightingale (FR) 5-foot-11, 195 pounds; makes up for his lack of size with coverage and positioning instincts
SS 13 Tim Beaucamp (SO) 6-foot-2, 225 pounds; aggressive hitter, sometimes used as a linebacker in six defensive back sets
S 14 Nestor Lazanga (SO) 6-foot-3, 235 pounds; typically plays strong safety but can also play free safety if needed.


SPECIALISTS:
1 K Matt Andersen (SO) 6-foot-3, 195 pounds; deadly accurate from 39 in; has some trouble with long field goals
3 P Carson Landers (SR) 6-foot-2, 200 pounds; handles all the punting and is the primary holder on kicks

4 K Jensen Sorensen (SO), 6-foot-3, 210 pounds; he's the team's kicker for long field goal attempts and is the kickoff specialist
5 P/K Mark Hayes (SO) 6-foot-2, 230 pounds; he's essentially an emergency backup for both the punter and the kicker.
KR 85 Carlton Shephard (SR) 6-foot-1, 195 pounds; handles both punt and kickoff returns
KR 84 Joao Santos (FR) 5-foot-10, 190 pounds; primarily a kickoff returner

Defensive line coach: Verne Asuncion (49)
Linebackers: MarVelle Butkus (46)
Secondary: Roman Cullen (41)
Home Stadium: Cyclone Field (capacity 66,953)

QUARTERBACKS:
2 Joyce Logano (SR) 6-foot-2, 195 pounds (Astronomy), Great ability to read defences. Lost some mobility after a torn MCL her junior year.
15 Brayden Cooks (JR) 6-foot-3, 210 pounds (English)
16 Brad Tunney (SO) 6-foot-1, 190 pounds (Social Work)

RUNNING BACKS:
31 T'Juan Rollings (SO) 6-foot-1, 225 pounds (Astrophysics), Bowling ball-type runner. Power everything. Not much use in the passing game.
34 Mart'eye Campbell (SR) 6-foot-4, 245 pounds (Criminology), big, bruising fullback, good blocker
20 Les Cardaway (JR) 5-foot-11, 195 pounds (Global Economics), speed guy, great pass receiver out of the backfield. Comes in on third downs and the third series of each half.
34 Da'wan Barks (FR) 6-foot-1, 215 pounds (History), Good runner with speed to the outside, but not all that powerful.

WIDE RECEIVERS:
11 Devin Quinn (FR) 6-foot-4, 215 pounds (Sport Science), the deep threat, an absolute burner. Gets injured at times for trying to go over the middle
4 Jan Nilsen (SR) 6-foot, 210 pounds (Linguistic Sciences), the possession receiver, willing to go over the middle, engage in the blocking game, and carries a linebacker's mentality to his position.
80 Cliff Denholm (JR) 5-foot-11, 185 pounds (English), he's another speed receiver who can sometimes be used as a key third down guy. He's often in the lineup when the Cyclones go three-wide.
82 Matt Crockett (SO) 6-foot-1, 200 pounds (International Politics), He converted from tight end during his first training camp with the team. He's still learning his way around being a receiver.
84 Selvyn Channing (FR) 6-foot-3, 200 pounds (Undeclared), He needs to bulk up for a significant role on the team. He's got good speed and a burst that shows itself when he actually gets on the field.

TIGHT ENDS:
85 Kent Ellard (SO) 6-foot-4, 230 pounds (Kinesiology), He's a phenomenal pass-catching tight end in the short- and medium-range passing game. He's a serviceable blocker, but he would be taken out of jumbo or heavy jumbo offensive sets.
[b]86 Dave Waddle (SR) 6-foot-5, 245 pounds (astronomy), He's a blocking tight end through and through. He caught a career high six passes his junior year including three in the team's national championship game victory.
89 Calvin Winslow (SR) 6-foot-5, 255 pounds (biology), He's also a blocking tight end, but he can release into the flat to catch passes more easily than Waddle can.
18 Ronan Holt (FR) 6-foot-6, 260 pounds (social work), He's a pass catching tight end who's able to block. He sometimes comes in on heavy jumbo in a four-tight end set.
19 Ned Hopkins (SO) 6-foot-5, 240 pounds (sociology), He's got a terrific skill set that lets him do whatever the coaches want him to do. He hasn't played much gridball or he might already be starting.

OFFENSIVE LINE (first five players are starters)
[b]LT 66 Kevin Bernard (JR) 6-foot-7, 350 pounds (Farm science)
LG 65 Micah Griffith (FR) 6-foot-4, 365 pounds (Criminology)
C 50 Tyson Middleton (SR) 6-foot-2, 315 pounds (History), calls the protections signals, obviously
RG 74 Red Ramsey (FR) 6-foot-4, 320 pounds (Mechanical Engineering)
RT 69 Chris Harmon (SO) 6-foot-4, 345 pounds (Exercise Science)

T 62 James Graham (FR) 6-foot-7, 355 pounds (Political Science)
G/T 56 Harry Leondard (SO) 6-foot-4, 320 pounds (Electrical Engineering)
C 67 Travis Reilly (FR) 6-foot-1, 305 pounds (undeclared)
C/G Ryan Fant (SO) 6-foot-4, 330 pounds (Latin)

DEFENSIVE LINE (First three players are starters)
DE 79 Brent Carlson (SO) 6-foot-5, 290 pounds (undeclared)
NT 70 Gregg Forrest (SR) 6-foot-1, 385 pounds (Sarzonian studies)
DE 91 Cal Noga (FR) 6-foot-3, 300 pounds (mathematics)


DE 75 Dave Howison (SO) 6-foot-4, 310 pounds (computer science)
DT 92 Craig Frederick (SR) 6-foot-5, 345 pounds (culinary arts)
DT 93 Lloyd Alvarez (FR) 6-foot-6, 335 pounds (physics)
DE 74 Mike Henderson (SR) 6-foot-5, 320 pounds (architecture)
DL 78 Darryl Wilson (SO) 6-foot-4, 315 pounds (political science), can play any of five positions along the defensive line
ED 99 Brad Hardesty (SO) 6-foot-3, 280 pounds (forensic science)
ED 98 Brian Tompkins (FR) 6-foot-4, 290 pounds (undecided)

LINEBACKERS (first four players are starters)
LOLB 50 LaMont Hawkins (SR) 6-foot-3, 250 pounds, can cover tight ends if necessary, though that isn't his strong suit. He's more likely to come up in run support.
LILB 96 Grant Hollings (SO) 6-foot-1, 240 pounds, has a nose for the football and a great sense of when to come on a run blitz.
RILB 95 Brian London (SR) 6-foot-4, 240 pounds, calls the defensive signals and plays a cerebral game.
ROLB 59 Tom Carraway (JR) 5-foot-10, 230 pounds, best coverage linebacker and can also be used as an edge pass rusher if needed.

OLB 58 Ken Ross (SR) 6-foot, 240 pounds, can be used as a cover linebacker or in pass rush situations.
ILB 57 Rich Harvey (JR) 6-foot-1, 250 pounds, provides depth for the inside linebackers
ILB 56 Neil Fanning (SO) 5-foot-11, 235 pounds, has great ability to recognise the opposing team's formations
OLB 55 Brad Husted (FR) 6-foot-2, 250 pounds, he provides pass rush depth

CORNERBACKS (First two start; others are brought in on nickel/other situations)
20 David Cornwell (FR) 5-foot-11, 190 pounds (secondary education/social studies), typically draws the opponent's top receiver unless there's a size mismatch. Sometimes still draws them anyway.
3 Marc Henderson (SO) 6-foot-1, 200 pounds (marine biology), plays the other cornerback position. If the Cyclones need a corner blitz from a starting corner, he can provide it. He's the more physical of the starters.

4 Ned Custis (JR) 6-foot-3, 215 pounds (medical assisting), the first corner called in for nickel situations; if the opposing team's best receiver is taller and more physical than Cornwell can handle, he starts.
5 Conrad Evans (SO) 6-foot-1, 195 pounds (sports medicine), another corner who comes in often for nickel or dime situations and is often on the field when six defensive backs are deployed.
22 Sean Davis (JR) 5-foot-9, 165 pounds (English), he's the fastest of the corners, so he can cover those small wide receivers who often sneak under the bigger corners.

SAFETIES (First two start)
FS 23 Brett Bowles (SR) 6-foot-2, 210 pounds, a physical safety, but also one capable of getting the defensive backs organised and he can call the defensive signals as a backup to London.
[b]SS 30 Asher Connaughton (SO) 6-foot-3, 230 pounds, he's also a physical safety and uses that as his game moreso than Bowles.

24 FS Brett Knight (SO) 6-foot-2, 225 pounds, he's also a physical safety and provides depth for Bowles.
29 SS Bobby Ballard (SO) 6-foot-2, 230 pounds, again, physical. Often comes up in run support or can cover tight ends if needed.

SPECIALISTS:
7 K Cameron Wing (JR) 5-foot-11, 190 pounds, handles the field goal kicking.
3 P Sal Rocca (FR) 6-foot-2, 210 pounds, is the holder on place kicks

5 P/K Lee Breech (JR) 6-foot-3, 215 pounds, backs up both Wing and Rocca; he can be used as a kickoff specialist.
KR 81 James Monk (SR) 6-foot-1, 200 pounds, serves as the primary kickoff returner
PR 88 Travis Helms (SR) 5-foot-11, 195 pounds, serves as the primary punt returner

Kimi Lundin(Valanora). 1st year on campus, currently redshirting. #3 overall recruit out of Valanora. 6'1", 192 lbs, Lefthanded. An exceptional dual purpose tight end who is that reliable security blanket for a quarterback who has gone through their progressions and needs a checkdown or a good lead blocker for a patient runner who runs behind their blockers. The only concern with Lundin is he has had a history of sprained ankles and wrists, making some wonder if he might be a little injury prone, if only with minor injuries. It is a label that Lundin is desperately trying to shake as he moves into his collegiate career.

Head Coach: Lance Kabuye. 68 years old. The Head Coach is in his eighth season at Northern Moravica. Being hired in what many would describe as an 'awkward situation' in the beginning- the previous coach, himself fired, who then maneuvered his own way to being Athletic Director, and picking his own successor. Many coaches would not have done that, but they have a great AD-head coach relationship, and the results cannot be argued with. In four of Kabuye's first 7 seven seasons, they've reached the NSCF Championship game, winning the whole thing in NSCF 19. Last season's effort was truly out of nowhere- barely voted into the playoffs by the committee as the lowest seed, they sprung three consecutive road upsets, against Staramara Tech, then Richardson U, and then killing Cold Hill's run to an undefeated season on their own turf. While the clock struck Midnight against Raynor in the title game, as long as Kabuye is at the helm, the future is bright at Northern Moravica.

Kabuye was the head coach of Wild Valley University, a smaller school in the eastern part of the Moravica region, for 6 years. He is sticking towards Northern's movement towards more of a traditional "pro-style" offense, focused on putting it under center. With loads of experience everywhere across the offense besides under center, it will be incumbent on him to make the Vanorian QB as comfortable as possible. Last year's success meant that a number of assistant coaches found promotions domestically, so it'll be another challenge for NMU as Lance Kabuye overturns the coaching staff.

Offensive Coordinator & Assistant Head Coach: Idirissa Ouattara. 71 years old. Kind of an out there hire. He was quarterbacks coach at Northern Moravica in NSCF 12 and NSCF 13 under Horace Browning, before he was offered an offensive coordinator position at the University of Ankole in domestic play. He was coordinator there for five seasons (domestic equivalents of NSCF 14-18) before becoming a head coach at Hangaza Tech. His head coaching career was disastrous- he was a poor culture fit, and was fired after just two seasons. He has always been big on the zone read running scheme, and Horace Browning suggested the hire to Kabuye shortly after the old offensive coordinator decided to go be a head coach on his own. This is his 6th year in the program.

Other Offensive Coaches
Quarterbacks Coach: Osogo Odwuor. 39 years old. 2nd year at Northern.
Offensive Line Coach: Abraham Gwandoya. 33 years old. 1st year at Northern.
Tight Ends Coach: Musaazi Adroa. 77 years old. 1st year at Northern.
Wide Receivers Coach: Kizza Birungi. 35 years old. 1st year at Northern.
Runnings Back Coach: Oneka Osano. 36 years old. 4th year at Northern, former offensive analyst for the Herzegovina City Cobras in Banija's professional gridiron league.

Defensive Coordinator & Assistant Head Coach: Okello Resa. 46 years old. He is entering his second season as the defensive coordinator. Chike Halim, the defensive coordinator for NSCF 23 & 24, was hired by the University of Bunyoro to be their head coach. Kabuye looked to the pro ranks for a defensive coordinator, and found one in Okello Resa. He took an extremely experienced defense, and helped put them into good enough shape to reach the title game. But this season will be a much greater challenge- is he up to it?

Other Defensive Coaches
Defensive Line Coach: Corban Opiyo. 42 years old. 2nd season at Northern, came from the same position at Hangaza A&M.
Linebackers Coach: Ahemed Gedeyon. 38 years old. 2nd season at Northern, was the team's starting middle linebacker during NSCF 17.
Cornerbacks Coach: Olara Owino. 73 years old. 2nd season at Northern, an old friend of Lance Kabuye's. Former head coach at Lesedi University, retired in the season equivalent to NSCF 22. Spent the last two seasons retired and away from the game before agreeing to come back for two seasons with his old friend.
Safeties Coach: Barabbas Ogolo. 33 years old. 2nd season at Northern, a well-connected local high school coach.

Special Teams Coordinator:Sebowa Zilaba. 46 years old. 1st year as Special Teams Coordinator. With the old Special Teams coordinator retiring at the ripe old age of 76, Kabuye, the veteran coach, looked to bring in some younger blood. Zilaba previously held the same job at Mamari University.

Strength & Conditioning Coach: Odikinyi Achuka. 47 years old. 4th season as Strength & Conditioning Coach.

Recruiting Coordinator: Phoebe Odero. Female. 44 years old. 2nd season as Recruiting Coordinator. Only woman on the coaching staff.

Retired numbers: #4 Pelias Patras. Set the national collegiate record for passing touchdowns in a career(95), and school record for passing yards in a career(9,977). Is the only quarterback in school history to start every single game for 4 years. First quarterback in school history to beat archrivals Loyola University-Istria 3 times in a row(coinciding NSCF 1, 2,3). Went to three straight national championship games(coinciding NSCF 1, 2, and 3) and won two national championships(coinciding NSCF 1 & 3).

Rivals: Currently the biggest rival of Northern Moravica University is the University of Loyola-Istria, who the Cougars have played at least once a season the last 60 seasons. They have played each other 24 times in NSCF competition, with Northern being 15-9 overall against their archrivals to the South. They've beaten Loyola at least once every season in the NSCF, including sweeping Loyola in NSCF 13, NSCF 22, and NSCF 24. This includes the two teams splitting their playoff matchups. These two teams have long been seen as the top two college football teams in Banija, and indeed, their stranglehold over Banijan college sports has continued, as they dominate not only in football, the biggest collegiate sport, but most other sports as well. When it was discussed for which team should debut Banija on the world stage for college football, it ultimately came down to these two, and after heating exchanges of words between both Athletic Directors and School Presidents in public, and the Mayors of Istria & Herzegovina City, the Banijan College Sports Group(BCSG) decided on a 11-8 vote to send Northern. Domestically, the fallout was so bad, that although they had shared a conference since independence, on a domestic basis, Loyola-Istria split away from NMU into a different conference. The two schools played a thriller in the NSCF 18 quarterfinals, a matchup won by the Blue Thunder. With Loyola's incredible postseason runs in the NSCF, they finally regained the upper hand in this rivalry when they downed Loyola-Istria at the Istria Lightning Yard in the NSCF 19 semifinals, en route to their first ever NSCF title. In recent years, Northern Moravica has gained the upper hand in the rivalry. Northern Moravica has won 6 of the last 7 games in the rivalry, including sweeps in both NSCF 22 and NSCF 24. NMU had reeled off four consecutive wins at the Istria Lightning Yard, before finally falling there last season. And this year, for the first time in the rivalry's NSCF history, the conference season will end with this game, as NMU will take on Loyola-Istria in weeks 5 and 10.

A former NSCF rival is Vietussia Academy. They have played a number of games against Vietussia Academy when both schools were members of the Celestia Conference. The two former conference rivals play each other for the Golden Axe. When Vietussia Academy returned to the NSCF for NSCF 18 as part of a different conference, the two teams played each other on the final game of the season in United Vietussia. Northern Moravica took the golden axe back to Herzegovina City with a 20-14 road victory, to improve to 2-3 all-time against their rivals.

A former Celestia Conference NSCF rival are the Salamantic Universities. The Salamantic Universities and Northern Moravica split the season series in NSCF 19-21, but the Salamantic Universities swept Northern in NSCF 22(in fact, they swept both Banijan schools). With them competing in the Celestia Conference, the rivalry continues to grow more heated between the schools every year. The official name of the trophy between the two schools is the 'Felinology Trophy', although students from both sides have unofficially named the trophy the 'Trophy of the Ancients' since the matchup is Cougars versus Professors. While Northern Moravica administrators were clear to say that was not the rivalry trophy's official name, with the lack of an official name, that has been the name tossed around by various outlets discussing the new rivalry. Northern Moravica has an all-time record of 5-7 against the Salamantics, and they presently are the trophy holders after a 21-0 shutout victory at home on Matchday 7.

The University of the Commonwealth of Baker Park is also considered a major foreign rival of Northern Moravica. These two teams have played every single season since UC-Baker Park joined the NSCF. The only season they did not schedule each other was NSCF 21, but the fates decided the two would play anyways, in the first round of the playoffs. UC-Baker Park won the sole playoff matchup between the two schools, 27-21. Northern Moravica has an all-time record of 3-4 against UC-Baker Park, . There is no name nor trophy for this rivalry- but it is considered a scheduling priority for both schools every single year. This season, they are in the same conference for the first time, only upping the ante and the stakes of the rivalry.

Elephant Valley University of South Newlandia is considered Northern Moravica's newest conference rival. The two schools contested the 'Sally Trophy' for the first time last season, created between the two schools to honor the relationship between the two countries. The Sally Trophy is named after an elephant named Sally, which was the very first elephant to be brought to South Newlandia. This elephant, of course, came from Banija, where elephants are populous. The elephant ended up becoming the national animal of South Newlandia, and of course, the animal is the namesake for EVU. Northern Moravica currently has an all-time record of 4-0 against EVU.

Entrance: There is a unique stadium entrance at home games for the Cougars football team. A starting senior on each side of the football stands outside the tunnel, each one holding the school flag. They stand opposite each other with the flags lowered, and then raise the flags and let the entire team run through. After the team and staff runs through, those two starters run to the middle of the field and each plant their flag on the logo, signifying that this is their home field, and that they will fight to defend home field.

Championships: Northern Moravica has seven Celestia Conference championships in 12 NSCF seasons, winning the conference title in NSCF 12, NSCF 13, NSCF 17, NSCF 18, NSCF 19, NSCF 23, and NSCF 24. They won their only NSCF championship in NSCF 19. They finished as runner-ups in NSCF 20, NSCF 23, and NSCF 25. They also have the longest active playoff appearance streak in the NSCF, having appeared in the NSCF playoffs in 9 consecutive seasons and counting.

Head Coach: Alanso Isa is the 72 year old alumnus from this school, now in his ninth season at Loyola-Istria. He was tasked to fill the shoes of legend Alastair Jobs, who won the NSCF 14 and NSCF 17 championships, alongside a NSCF 14 Celestia Conference title, who had an 8-0 all-time postseason record in the NSCF. While he had the impossible shoes to fill of a head coach who literally never lost a NSCF playoff game, Alanso Isa has done a fine job filling the shoes of the man who the stadium is named after. In his first five seasons at Loyola, he had kept the school strong and even has his own championship in NSCF 21.

But it has been a struggle from that high point. They finished at just 7-7 in NSCF 24, prompting a "reinvigoration" of the team for NSCF 25. Alanso Isa took the .500 squad and unleashed them on the Celestia, getting enough development out of the squad to earn the school their first conference championship in three years. While they started out basically on fire, starting out 10-2, they struggled at the end. They lost their game against Richardson, their Ranorian archrivals, for the fourth consecutive season, and then flopped out of the playoffs at home against Woodstock City College. An otherwise very successful season with a bitter ending, Alanso Isa is looking to re-tool his squad to defend his Celestia Conference title.

Offensive Coordinator & Assistant Head Coach: Bethlehem Nangobi. Female. 45 years old. The NSCF 14 Most Outstanding Player, Dennis Zervos, led the offense for 8 seasons. But when Alanso Isa was on the hot seat during NSCF 24, Zervos was publicly considered the top prospect to take Isa's job as head coach. That obviously created tensions between him and the head coach- a situation made more awkward by the fact that Loyola's Athletic Director was Dennis Zervos' father, Patrick Zervos. That dynamic, after it was announced that Isa would return, proved to be too much for this relationship to handle, and Dennis Zervos and ULI agreed on an amicable split.

Zervos spent 8 seasons as Loyola's offensive coordinator, and although he was long considered the heir apparent here, that is no longer true- he's winning championships in the RFL with Gwenderyn. Who would ever walk away from such a perfect coach/player pairing? But out with the old and in with the new. Bethlehem is considered one of the fastest rising female coaches in the game, with her most recent role as a quarterbacks coach in the pros, for the Busukuma Suns. It was a high-risk maneuver, but last year it worked successfully. Ebou Hairte showed enough improvement to decide to not return for his senior year, and go pro early. They decided to grab a grad transfer from Baker Park, named Craig Juniper, for this season. While he plays this year, excitement builds for the hotshot Chromatik prospect on the bench- we'll see if Anne-Maurice Vavayavich can get any packages this season.

Wide Receivers Coach: Korah Okatch. 42 years old. 5th season at Loyola-Istria. The only coach on the offensive staff retained, primarily due to his 'excellent' relationship with Rachel Emerson, the team's budding superstar Cassadagan wideout.
Tight Ends Coach: Elea Mzuzi. 34 years old. 2nd season at Loyola-Istria. Doubles as the team's Analytics Assistant. Former analytics director at Wild Valley University.
Offensive Line Coach: Jamba Shomari. 38 years old. 2nd season at Loyola-Istria. Came as a well-connected high school coach.

Defensive Coordinator: Rasheed Moyo. 46 years old. The other coordinator who was brand new last year, who helped with Loyola-Istria's resurgence on both sides of the football that led them to a coveted conference championship. Moyo has coached at all levels of the game, coaching for the Rukunbi Dragons in this city as a Cornerbacks coach, as well as coaching high school football as a head coach. Rasheed Moyo is leading the defense's transition from a 3-4 to a 2-4-5, as he believes getting more spread on the field is crucial to countering the increasing effects of the passing attack in the modern game. His aggression will stay the same- reflective of the high-risk, high-reward mentality of his defense.

Championships: The Loyola-Istria Blue Thunder have an incredible NSCF postseason record, being 19-5 all-time in the postseason in this competition, including a ridiculous 16-5 in playoff games and 3-0 in bowl games. Those, of course, give them three NSCF Championships. In NSCF 13, they won the Pioneer Bowl, and in NSCF 14 and NSCF 17, they won the NSCF championship, posting a 3-0 and 4-0 record in those two postseasons, respectively. In NSCF 18, they made a run to the NSCF title game, only to fall to Mar Sara Tech. In both NSCF 19 and NSCF 20, they lost semifinals on their home field, falling to Northern Moravica at home in NSCF 19 and falling to Cold Hill at home in NSCF 20. They redeemed themselves in NSCF 21, defeating Cold Hill in the championship game. They have three Celestia conference championships, winning in NSCF 14, NSCF 20, and NSCF 21. Unfortunately for the team, however, they have not won a playoff game since their NSCF 21 title, meaning the entire NSCF 26 Roster does not know what it's like to win a NSCF playoff game. The team, however, has won a pair of bowl games, winning the Karmin-Falce Auto Bowl in NSCF 22 and the Mugisha III Memorial Bowl in NSCF 24. They also have four Celestia Conference titles, having won those in NSCFs 14, 20, 21, and 25.

Individual Accolades: They have racked up individual accolades during their time as a member of the NSCF. Dennis Zervos, their former offensive coordinator, was the NSCF's most outstanding player in NSCF 14, and their current quarterback, Isaka Jawara, was the NSCF 17 Offensive Player of the Year en route to their championship run, and the NSCF 18 Most Outstanding Player, and he won the NSCF 19 Offensive Player of the Year award in his senior season. Corrin Fairless, a starting cornerback and their special teams star, won the NSCF 18 Special Teams Player of the Year Award. Abram Fairbanks added to the individual accolades, winning the NSCF 25 Defensive Player of the Year Award. That leaves the Coach of the Year award being the only award Loyola-Istria has not won.

Rivalries: North v. South Showdown against Northern Moravica. See Cougar History and Traditions for more.

Their big foreign rival is Richardson University of Ranoria, whom they play annually in the Rebel's Cannon Bowl. The young rivalry has developed quickly, as the teams compete for recruits off the field and championships on it. In NSCF 17, Loyola-Istria travelled to Richardson University for the first game of this rivalry, and lost a very close battle. But in the return in NSCF 18, Richardson University came to Busukuma, and defeated the Blue Thunder at the Stadium of the Restoration. The return was another close battle between the two schools, losing an instant classic in overtime in Ranoria. This rivalry is called the Rebel's Cannon Bowl, and is traditionally contested on the final weekend of the regular season. This season will be the ninth edition of the game. The first four of the games of the series have been won by the home side, with Richardson winning in NSCF 17 and NSCF 19, while Loyola-Istria emerged victorious in NSCF 18 and NSCF 20. However, Loyola-Istria triumphed in NSCF 21 en route to their third NSCF championship, to break that streak while winning on the road. And that was the last season Loyola beat their fierce rivals. Richardson has now, to the disgust and horror of Blue Thunder fans, won 4 in a row in this series, including twice when Loyola was the designated home team. It is a source of constant annoyance for Loyola players and fans alike, including and especially the coaching staff. Loyola currently sits with a 3-6 all-time record against their despised Ranorian rivals.

They also have a very competitive rivalry with Felswyr State University. The Chromatik school is an annual opponent for the Blue Thunder, and they sport some of the best NSCF QBs in history- with Isaka Jawara, a man who has two NSCF Offensive Player of the Year awards, as well as one Most Outstanding Player award, being a graduate of Loyola-Istria, and Sarai Gwenderyn- who is freaking Sarai Gwenderyn- having taken snaps for Felswyr State. Loyola is 2-3 all-time against their Chromatik rivals. Sarai got the best of them in the first three matchups across the first two years of this rivalry, which includes a pair of regular season wins, and a playoff win at the Istria Lightning Yard. But the last two years, the last laugh has gone to Loyola, with heartstopping wins in back-to-back years for the Blue Thunder to flex their blue blood status.

Whereas James Arthur had the advantage of familiarity with playing an international schedule, Joe Gibbs University coach Mark Hardesty had no such advantage. He looked up at the sign adorning Cyclone Field, the longtime home stadium for the Cyclones.

Only, he remembered until recently that the stadium, and in fact, his team, both bore different names. When he first became the manager of the team, it was known as the Redskins, and the stadium was known as Redskins Stadium. He'd seen that stadium shake almost to its rafters many a time and hearing the student section do war-whoops, Tomahawk chops, and the like.

But times were changing, and the Board of Regents announced an edict that the team could not longer carry that nickname. The stadium had to be renamed as well. So the names for both were changed by a vote by the Board of Regents. They ignored polling among the student body, the staff, faculty, administrators, and alumni because the results in all of the polling would have advised them to keep the name.

"Not gonna happen," University President Lester Hempstead said. "We're changing it. Period."

It wasn't like the university had a choice. President Haffner himself announced support for a bill that was in the House Education Committee that would strip federal funding from any university that refused to change "denigrating" names. And make no mistake: Redskins was considered denigrating. It wasn't like Haffner chose to get directly involved in a decision at the risk of receiving criticism from the country's right wing. There wasn't much of a right wing to speak of. The Conservative Party was dead. The far right political parties were considered extremists. The Moderate Party was as close to a "right wing" as it got, and Haffner was a member of that party. Haffner was asked during a normal press conference about the bill which was being debated in committee, and he simply answered, "I support the legislation."

So the university had its marching orders. Still, there was leftover signage on stadium walls referring to the old name. There were still fans who loudly protested the change, although many were quick to add they understood the reasons for it. They figured they just wanted to be mad for a while.

As it stood, the Cyclones would have a difficult schedule in the Sequoia, even though many of the teams were newcomers. The Silverleaf University Goblins, the defending conference champions, were not. The now-Woodstock University Climbers, they of the 10-win season with James Arthur as Coach of the Year, were not. They had an uphill battle ahead of them.

Hardesty thought quietly to himself, "bring it on."

Known affectionately as "The Horseshoe" to locals and to many across TJUN-ia, Sherwood Field combines the raucous atmosphere of a college game with the surrounding local scenery that the region is known for. The big patch of grass in front of the scoreboard is accessible to fans, allowing for a unique viewpoint for the game we all love. While it certainly isn't the biggest venue in all of TJUN-ia, not just the NSCF, its warm and close-up atmosphere can certainly make the difference come game time...

Loyola-Istria Preview- Can they return to where they feel they belong?

Image
A gridiron player does a backflip at Midnight Fall Sports pep rally


ISTRIA, MORAVICA- We have been waiting, and waiting, for the start of college football season. And NSCF 26 is finally here. Loyola-Istria, who have been in the doldrums for a few years, finally broke out of their funk and won their first conference title since NSCF 21 last season. They accomplished a number of key goals last season, including winning the conference, beating Northern, and going undefeated at home to boot.

But there is plenty left to play for as they seek to build on last season's success. As they re-tool with a new grad transfer QB under center, there is still plenty they want to do. They have a four game losing streak to Richardson University, which enrages everybody around campus. They had an entire senior class come and go without beating their hated Ranorian rivals- Abram Fairbanks and co. will try to make sure that it isn't two. Continue the tradition of Fortress Istria, win the conference again, finally beat Richardson, and win a playoff game to boot. Easier said than done, right?

What will we expect from the reigning conference champions?

Who's the Quarterback?


WE all know how Loyola-Istria likes to do things. Either go from three year starter to three year starter, or use a bridge quarterback to go from 3 year starter to three year starter. It has been their plan throughout their time in the NSCF, and has worked to absolute perfection. NSCFs 13 and 14 they had Dennis Zervos, who started in NSCF 13 as a true freshman. The domestic season coinciding with NSCF 15, Zervos was a starter again before going pro. Domestic season with NSCF 16, we had a bridge, then when we returned to NSCF competition in NSCF 17, Isaka Jawara took the reigns. Three year starter. Omar Jassey started for one year in NSCF 20, then Chibuzo was a three year starter, NSCFs 21-23. Ebou Hairte was supposed to simply do the same. He was a two year starter, but instead of returning for his senior season, he decided to go to the draft.

So the questions abounded- who would start at quarterback? The options were the returning junior backup, Bunama Diawara. He had a start last year, and in tough circumstances(only found out he'd be starting the day before), and the Blue Thunder got smashed, on the road. Then, there was the blue chip Chromatik QB prospect, Anne-Maurice Vavayavich. She was the top recruit from Chromatika, and a five star athlete at that. While she has a bright future ahead of her, Isa's plan was clearly to start Hairte this year, have her learn on the bench behind him, and then start her in NSCF 27. But that was blown up. Loyola hasn't had a true freshman start at QB in Week 1 since Dennis Zervos did it himself, in NSCF 13. So what to do? No need to panic. The transfer portal exists now. Go out and get yourself another arm, and then have an open, 3 way competition in camp.

He searched far and wide, and landed Craig Juniper, from the University of Coolville in Baker Park. The graduate transfer is a redshirt senior, and will only spend one year here in Istria. While, of course, the starting job was not promised, he came as the odds-on favorite to win the job, and win the job he did. A three year starter, he'll be pursuing a master's degree here at Loyola. Less of a pure athlete than ULI QBs usually are, but he can deal. Last season in Baker Park, he threw for 3,800 yards, and 26 touchdowns, compared to 9 interceptions. "I'm thankful for the opportunities that I had at Coolville." Craig Juniper said in his first press conference when he arrived on campus. "But I'm excited for the next chapter of my football career. Loyola-Istria truly is what they call QB-U, and I am excited to fit inside this long tradition of Loyola-Istria Quarterbacks."

Like we said, less of a pure athlete- he's never a run first guy. He's got the pocket presence, he can extend plays and scramble if necessary, but this dude's gonna beat you with his arm. And boy, he has a cannon. Nearly 4,000 yards in a single season? We've seen it. A pure deep ball, can throw it further than just about anybody, although he needs to work a little on his short throw accuracy. But the opportunity is there for an explosive offense. "I'm excited to show everybody what this number nine is going to do under center for us." Head Coach Alanso Isa said, when he publicly announced who the starter would be. "With Juniper under center, we've got the chance to be that explosive offense we've always been destined to have, with a guy who's proven his ability to compete in college football."

Juniper also will be the first-ever non-Banijan to start at Quarterback for Loyola-Istria.

Coaching Staff Changes


None! Despite the conference title, Alanso Isa was able to hold onto all of his coaching staff, from the position coaches on up. Of course, that cost the private school a pretty penny, as position coaches all got raises. Nobody will confirm, but an insider told us that the school gave 15% raises to all of its position coaches, and 20% raises to all three coordinators, plus the strength & conditioning coach. "One of the things about winning is that it means dudes will look elsewhere." Said one Banijan TV reporter. "It's a positive sign that all these coaches are staying, at least for one more year. It means that there's a bunch of faith in this squad. Coaches, by their actions, seem to think that they are the favorites to win the Celestia for a second time, and maybe even do more. Can they get it done?

What about that damned clock?


It has been over 1,000 days since Loyola-Istria beat Richardson in football. And that twii.tur clock continuously reminds Blue Thunder fans of that fact, to their great annoyance. That is four years in a row, where the Blue Thunder have come out on the wrong side of this rivalry with Richardson. Last year's game was particularly painful. The Blue Thunder were sitting at 10-2, on a 10 game winning streak in games where Ebou Hairte played, with an opening day loss away against Northern Moravica, and a Week 10 road loss against RUoN, where Hairte was academically ineligible, their only blemishes on the schedule. Many at Loyola-Istria thought that they would be able to provide a legitimate challenge to Cold Hill, and chase their fourth ever title on home soil. But that is the opposite of what happened. Richardson blew the doors off of their hated rivals to inflict the worse loss of the storied rivalry, for either team.

There's no reason Abram Fairbanks shouldn't be going pro. He was absolutely dominant last season. A ridiuclous 15 sacks, as a junior, alongside 3 forced fumbles, and one fumble recovered. The dude was an unblockable wrecking ball, as he won the NSCF XXV Defensive Player of the Year Award. Then why, pray tell, is he returning? For one reason- to beat Richardson. "I've done everything there is here, with the conference title and beating NMU and what not." Abram Fairbanks said last season. "But I refuse to end my career going winless against a school like Richardson University. We'll get them at Fortress Istria this year, and by golly, I'm gonna end my career here with a win against them."

Four consecutive losses. And with each loss, it drives the Blue Thunder crazier and crazier. Now with the game coming to campus, can the Blue Thunder bury those demons in front of a white out crowd?

Key Players


Let's go through this, shall we?

Junior Tight End Russell Farmer

Russell Farmer. We all remember how good Johnny Farmer was. But Russell Farmer, his little brother, is absolutely getting to that same elite status as well. Last year, Ebou Hairte was absolutely dealing, as he made sure that everybody got fed. All of his receivers, and Russell Farmer, were getting plenty of targets, and playing time. Last year, in the regular season, he had 60 catches, for 808 yards, and 8 receiving touchdowns. Are those not elite TE receiving numbers? As a sophomore. And this year, he's going to have to do even better. Three of Loyola's top 4 WRs last year have now graduated, with Rachel Emerson the only one of those four who is returning. That means, with a thinner and much less proven depth chart at WR, Craig Juniper is going to have to look Farmer's way more than Hairte ever did.

But with great expectation, comes great responsibility. It won't be easy. While Emerson and Farmer will both see a big increase in targets, defenses are going to focus more on them as well. And, naturally, they have a grad transfer QB. Craig Juniper wasn't here in the Spring, as he was finishing up his bachelor's degree at the University of Coolville. And it wasn't as if they could dedicate the summer to putting in work with Juniper, since they didn't know who would win the job. Juniper won the job, but that was with 2 weeks to go before Week 1? Farmer has the double challenge of defenses focusing on him, as well as having to integrate himself with a new QB. But he's gonna have to do it. He's an X-Factor. If he can overcome that, then he is truly in line for a huge junior season. And if he has one, it wouldn't be a surprise for Loyola-Istria to be lifting the Celestia for a second time.

But if he can't? Well, the South Newlandian schools, particularly RUoN, seem to be chomping at the bit for their first conference title...

WR Rachel Emerson.

The number one receiver. She's a flat out superstar. Look at her numbers last year. 81 catches for 1,112 yards, and 10 touchdowns. Model citizen. Straight A student. First woman to ever play for the Blue Thunder in gridiron. And her numbers last year were as a sophomore. But the receiving room is going to look so very different than what she's used to. With 3 WRs graduating, that means she is the undisputed, number one target. Everything changes when you're the number one receiver. She's gonna have to lead the receiving corps. She's going to have to deal with quite a bit of double coverage. Defenses teeing off on her in a way that they couldn't last year, when the Blue Thunder were just littered with weapons.

And they've got a new Quarterback, to boot. But she's up for the challenge. "Look- this is college football. Things change drastically from year to year." She told reporters. "We have a new QB, new running backs, etc.. But I'm not scared. Craig Juniper is an absolute baller- I've seen him in practice, and he can whip the ball around as good as anybody. I think you'll see him develop quick chemistry with all of us. And for what they say about inexperience at our position group... Some of our young guys, and our new guys, at WR are going to step up a lot faster than people think."

EDGE Abram Fairbanks.

What more is there to say? Last year, he had 15 sacks, and 3 forced fumbles. Add in 10 tackles for loss. There's a reason that he was the unanimous Defensive Player of the Year Award. College competition is simply unfair for him at this point. Why, is he coming back then for his senior year? Hell, even Alanso Isa told reporters that it would've been a 'dereliction of duty' for him to recommend to Fairbanks to not go pro and make his millions. So why is he back, against his coach's advice? Well, you heard it from his first- he wants to beat Richardson. And he wants to win a NSCF title. I mean, this guy might go down as the greatest Loyola-Istria defender of all-time. He wants a championship desperately.

But there may be another reason. Did you see last year's draft class? Sarai Gwenderyn going to the RFL. Surefire number one, as one of the greatest college QBs of all-time. There's another thing that Fairbanks might want. Not about the money- he still would've been picked top 5. But the status of being a #1 overall draft pick, well, that might be enough to forgo guaranteed millions. Is that cynical? Maybe. But also a possibility. I guess we'll never know the real answer. But we can all agree that it's easier to be the #1 draft pick when you don't share a draft board with Gwenderyn. Whatever the reason, the RFL's loss is Loyola's gain, as teams will have to gameplan around him. He's certainly the favorite to win the Defensive Player of the Year award again.

CB Emmitt Krell(Chromatika)

Year 4 at Loyola-Istria, and Emmitt Krell is the CB1. Why is he the impact player? Out of the five players who will start in week 1 out of Loyola's secondary this year, Krell is the only one who has started a NSCF game. The big, Chromatik cornerback will be an integral part of the Loyola defense. It is a defense built around getting pressure on the Quarterback. You've got dudes like Abram Fairbanks, Justin Peterson, and Najee Isidora on your team- you've simply got to send them flying into the backfield, time and time again. That leaves defenses exposed in the back. That's part of why Isa switched to a 2-4-5, to ensure that there was more speed on the field, especially in the secondary. But this team's CBs will be left on islands sometimes.

And Emmitt Krell will be tracking the opponent's WR1, wherever he is. Can he hold up in man coverage? If he can, that opens up a lot of blitz packages, and the chance for the Blue Thunder to really elevate their defense. But if he struggles with this responsibility, then it's going to be a long season on the back end for them. Krell, physically, can hold up with anybody. At 6'4, he's absolutely huge for a cornerback, so nobody's ever going to outsize him. He's got that speed and quickness. But CB1 is quite possibly the most difficult position to play in the entire sport. His performance will go a long way in determining how strong a season the Blue Thunder can have.

Prediction


We're going to say 7-3, and finish tied for second in-conference with EVU. We think this will include road losses to both RUoN and EVU, and a home loss to Northern Moravica, who will take the conference title from them on the final day of the season. As for non-con? We'll take them in their home games, beating both Upper Westside and finally beating Richardson, and then losing to Felswyr State in Chromatika. 9-4 should be enough to get them an automatic at-large berth to the NSCF 26 Playoffs.

Felswyr State University Firehawks
Stadium: Firehawks' Roost (Cap. 38,000), Felswyr, Mountain District, Chromatika
Offensive Base Formation: 5 OL, 3 WR, 2 TE, 1 QB
Defensive Base Formation: 3 DL, 4 LB, 1 SS, 1 FS, 2 CB


COACHING STAFF
Head Coach: Misha Florentine, 45
Born and raised in Felswyr, Forentine has been one of the biggest proponents of Gridiron Football in Chromatika for years. He was a successful businessperson under the Chromatik Party, but dissolved his state-run factory during the Rainbow Revolution, using the funds to create Chromatika's first Gridiron Football academy. A charismatic visionary, Florentine is someone who likes to delegate the actual football duties (he was never a player but loves the game) while being the front office manager. The fact that he has landed Felswyr State University a spot in the NSCF is a huge victory to both him and to Chromatik Gridiron Football as a whole. With Felswyr State's success in its first three years (3 Semifinals appearances, 2 Championship appearances, 1 Championship), his efforts have made him the hero of all gridiron fans in Chromatika. Last season's faltering has hurt his image a bit, but he will forever remain the man who made gridirion the sport it is in the country.

Offensive Coordinator: Naia Curentino, 38
Who is Naia Curentino? She played football semiprofessionally in the Regional Leagues for a few years before calling her career quits and going all in on Florentine's plan. An avid fan of the NSCF (her favorite team until Felswyr State entered the competition was University of Loyola-Istria, she's revealed in a few interviews), she's the mad scientist of the Coaching Staff. Why use a 3-3-5? Her answer is that the personnel that the team has isn't suited to have any backs at all, and that speed and possessing the ball will do the job. She's very animated, very forward, and very driven. Someone that the team needs if they're going to make a name for themselves. In the first three years, Curentino has proven that her system isn't just a flash in the pan, having won the NSCF two years ago. Now, with Gwenderyn gone, and Passing Game Coordinator Sara Lee Hampton out the door, what can she do? How much of the success was due to Gwenderyn?

Defensive Coordinator: Isidora Noles, 44
With Kasen Harrowitz leaving for Richardson University, Isidora Noles stepped in as Defensive Coordinator, promoted from her Secondary Coach position. She's been highly instrumental in how the team's come together defensively. She'll be using a 3-4-4 instead of the 3-3-5, which will mean that the team will be a bit more stout through the middle. As a disciplinarian and shrewd tactician who knows her personnel by heart, the Firehawks are hoping to not miss a beat. Their defense did well enough last season, in the midst of the collapse, and will be asked to shoulder the lion's share of the burden this season with the absence of Gwenderyn.

Special Teams Coordinator: Vera James, 33
A savant of trick plays and taking risks, James is the youngest member of the staff by far. She views every instance of special teams impacting the match as an opportunity to hit it big, and will always look for players who can do more than they are supposed to. A tricky, catty individual, she's willing to do almost anything to win. With McAllister and Katt gone, there's new players on the positions - and the possibility for more.

Head Physio: Marius Benne, 39
The younger brother of Zoe "Z" Benne, the Chromatik National Football Team's physio, Marius is the more serious of the two, all business all the time. He's pretty good at his job.

QB Jonas Odden

The absence of Sarai Michelle Bradwyn Gwenderyn will loom large, but Jonas Odden should do decently well as the stand-in before Kadesh Odika takes over next season. That is the plan, anyway - unless Odden proves to be greater than expected. This will be an interesting season, indeed.

WR Otto Mitchell

Tired of having to deal with Drawkian corner backs four times a year, FSU went out and recruited Otto Mitchell from Drawkland. Though he may not be as tall as other Drawkians, he's the tallest target that Gwenderyn has ever had; with his height and jumping skills, the Firehawks will be able to air things out more than ever before. Mitchell was a huge part of the team's offense in their championship run two years go; assisted by Stan Devlin and So Kwang-Sun, Mitchell is still making a name for himself with the knowledge that he will almost always have the name Alessandra Mio held up on a pedestal ahead of him.

PP Nyata Antonucci

Antonucci makes it here because she is the closest thing the Firehawks have to a traditional running back. She's actually expected to take snaps out of the I formation this season, which will be something new.

TE Ulrich Jefferson

Since the graduation of Niles Gwivern, Ulrich Jefferson is the best receiving tight end that the country has had. He'll grow into the role, but he will be a good security blanket.

OT Julian Watt

With Kingston gone, Watt is the senior voice on the offensive line - and the Kohnheadian is going to be expected to lead a group of mostly underclassmen as the line continues to grow.
Offensive Philosophy

How does this team play with no backs? There is always a medium route runner, a short route runner, and a deep route runner, with one tight end blocking and another running an intermediate route. Now with Gwenderyn gone, the team will lean into the presence of Antonucci and Vsilievna more, and possibly even establish running the ball. There is the issue of the young offensive line, but this is a unit that will continue to grow with time.

DE Aubin Rouzet and Sizo Ashenafi

It's Aubin Rouzet and Sizo Ashenafi starting. Rouzet is someone that has the combination of ability to find the backfield, ability to tackle anyone that gets in his way, and the reach to catch those balls that other Defensive Ends would not be able to. Ashenafi, on the other hand, is a tough-as-nails gamechanger who comes through in the clutch. The Firehawks are banking a lot on their development.

DT Konstantin Vollmacht

Konstantin Vollmacht, all 6 ft 6 of him, plugs the hole and let the speed of the rest catch up while trying to take the attention of a few of the offensive line. With his stature, that shouldn't be a problem.

OLB Nicole Manstrom and Rolan Monroe

Nicole Manstrom starts alongside Rolan Monroe. Monroe is a clutch player who is driven while Manstrom is the blitzer - two more players who will be trying to fill in some big shoes.

MLB Reile Jordan

Filling Park Mi-Hyeon's shoes is almost as impossible as filling Sarai's, but Jordan - with her smarts and her quickness - will do a decent job..

SS Sage "Bricks" Sterling

Bricks has the authority to come across on blitzes more often. He's someone who can do a bit of everything, so his versatility will be showcased while Lindjelm will be a good backup. This is his senior year, and the Firehawks are letting him loose.

CB Brianna Oglesby

Now in her Junior year, Oglesby is the team's leading Corner, having learned very quickly and without much issue.

CB Katie Sawyer

Sawyer is now the second corner, and will likely be on an island more often, though Amble can also play this role. Don't be surprised to see her lined up at outside linebacker, either safety, or any of the cornerback positions.
Defensive Philosophy

A 3-3-5 means that the Nickel Back is on the field for 100% of the time, and plays the effect of a third safety or a fourth linebacker. Oglesby and Sawyer or Amble are asked to be on islands a lot of the time, and Mazzi often helps, with Sterling helping out, too. This allows Manstrom and Park to play more aggressively. With the front seven being so young, the secondary will be asked to do more while Jordan tries to fill the hole left by Park.

K Sara McAllister

She's the emotional leader of the squad, and with Breille helping her out, she's been able to stay healty.

K Michelle Breille

Breille is it, now. She has a longer leg but is highly passionate and emotional, having learned how to be more of a clutch kicker from one of the best in the sport.

P Viktor Andrei

Andrei takes over, with his booming leg and a more carefree attitude.
Special Teams Philosophy

A kicker should never miss. Play for field position. Solid fundamentals. McAllister will be missed.

Staramara Tech University Lava
Stadium: Johnston Memorial Stadium, Staramara, Urrhed Island (Cap. 4,500)

MANAGEMENT
Head Coach: Laverna Getz (55)
Offensive Coordinator: Teisha Wagoner (51)
Defensive Coordinator: Candy Vogel (51)
Special Teams Coordinator: Adelle Bernard (44)

OFFENSE
Philosophy: The STU Lava use a jumbo set (5 OL, 1 QB, 1 FB, 1 HB, 2 TE, 1 WR or 5 OL, 1 QB, 1 FB, 2 HB, 1 TE, 1 WR) and run the ball 80% of the time. Their receivers are more outside blockers that sometimes leak out to catch receivers in the flat. The QB is allowed to take the ball and run it or hand it off - they commit to the run well. When the QB does throw, it's quick outs or deep play action passes.

Quarterbacks
#13 QB Liana Anderson - So (20) - Height: 6' 4: - Hometown: Chromia, Capital District
#18 QB Haruno Masakazu - So (20) - Height: 6' 2" - Hometown: Felswyr, Mountain District

#07 QB Amerique Qarinne - Fr (19) - Height: 6’ 1” - Hometown: Urrheddiao, Urrhed Island

Liana Anderson is a hybrid passer who can throw and run with equal efficiency, while Hakuno Masakazu is an interesting fit as he's more of a pocket quarterback with an accurate arm. Is it possible that Masakazu can be brought in on passing downs? Who will win the starting job between two highly touted prospects? Amerique Qarinne is a work in progress, but will be fine as the third string QB.

Running Backs
#27 RB Gabriele Ziegler - So (19) - Height: 5' 9" - Hometown: Mooreville, Ranoria
#25 RB Lana Rhodes - Sr (22) - Height: 6' 6" - Hometown: Umbar, Mountain District
#32 RB Jordan Hines - Jr (21) - Height: 6' 2" - Hometown: Sanar, Rainbow District
#34 RB Andrew Jonas - Sr (22) - Height: 6' 5" - Hometown: Myana, Myana Island

Gabriele has done well as a receiving back, and with Lana Rhodes there to help with running the ball, Ziegler's presence as an escape for Pantoja was crucial, and this is expected to continue for Anderson and Masakazu. Expect Ziegler to get most of the snaps while Rhodes comes in on obvious rushing downs.

Fullbacks
#38 FB Naomi Erehon - Jr (21) - Height: 6' 2" - Hometown: Tihon, Urrhed Island
#37 FB Jameson Akae - Fr (19) - Height: 6’ 3” - Hometown: Staramara, Urrhed Island

Naomi Erehon is more of the pass blocking type who can leak out in the flat, and is more expected to play with Masakazu, while Akae is the run-blocking type.

Wide Receivers
#11 WR Elfreda Borden - Sr (22) - Height: 6' 10" - Hometown: Staramara, Urrhed Island
#17 WR Layna Cinder - Jr (21) - Height: 6' 8" - Hometown: Urrheddiao, Urrhed Island
#80 WR Min-Gu Byuk - Jr (21) - Height: 6' 5" - Hometown: Tihon, Urrhed Island
#83 WR Jacoby Grinner - Fr (19) - Height: 6’ 4: - Hometown: Chromia, Capital District

This group of receivers are okay with catching the ball, but better used setting the edge on stretch running plays. Elfreda Borden lacks speed, but she can definitely fill up space; Layna Cinder is more of a pure pass catcher and Min-Gu Byuk is the speedster. Expect Borden out there on most plays unless they really need to throw the ball. With Grinner’s addition, they have added an option that can find space.

Tight Ends
#82 TE Calista Weathers - Sr (22) - Height: 6' 5" - Hometown: Eyrods, Myana Island
#84 TE Oswain Callheart - Jr (21) - Height: 6' 9" - Hometown: Z'ai'ai, Mountain District

#89 TE Darin Faulkner - Fr (19) - Height: 6’ 1” - Hometown: Urrheddiao, Urrhed Island

In order for the Lava to do well, their Tight Ends will have to do well. Calista Weathers is the blocking one, while Oswain Callheart is the one to head out there. Darin Faulkner is good in rush blocking and not much else.

Offensive Tackles
#71 OT Izaya Hanzo - Jr (21) - Height: 6' 4" - Hometown: Umbar, Mountain District
#73 OT Zacharias Jouronnais - Sr (22) - Height: 6' 2" - Hometown: Chromia, Capital District

#76 OT Nastaya Fleming - Jr (21) - Height: 6' 4" - Hometown: Myana, Myana Island
#72 OT Steven Rand - Sr (22) - Height: 6' 8" - Hometown: Wirr Tsi, Capital District

Izaya Hanzo and Zacharias Jouonnais are both run-first players - which fits the Lava well - but Hanzo is more of a mauler while Jouronnais uses speed and quickness. Nastaya Fleming is a bit slower than either of them, while Steven Rand is the better passing blocker than any of them. They remain the biggest question for the Lava's offense.

Offensive Guards
#74 OG Haden Groff - Jr (21) - Height: 6' 5" - Hometown: Qet, Urrhed Island
#66 OG Brandon Nile - Jr (21) - Height: 6' 4" - Hometown: Tor, Urrhed Island

#70 OG Karlos Dwyer - Fr (19) - Height: 6’ 1” - Hometown: Urrheddiao, Urrhed Island
#78 OG Arley Barrier - Fr (19) - Height: 6’ 7” - Hometown: Staramara, Urrhed Island

With Reeves and Ruffin gone, Groff and Nile are up. Both of them are strong and physical but aren’t the best in pass protection - the best pass protector on this line is Barrier. Karlos Dwyer, on the other hand, is quick for a lineman.

Centers
#70 C Si-U Park - So (20) - Height: 6' 7" - Hometown: Sanar, Rainbow District
#77 C Maria Jones - Jr (21) - Height: 6' 4" - Hometown: Wix, Urrhed Island
#79 C Rhiani Samson - Jr (21) - Height: 6' 2" - Hometown: Qet, Urrhed Island

Park Si-U is a cerebral player who can call out protection schemes and assigning packages than playing the game himself. He's not the best at running situations, and will have to be inducted in the way of STU's running game. Maria Jones and Rhiani Samson will be there in case Park needs help.

DEFENSE
Philosophy: The Lava run a 4-3, Cover 2, with an emphasis on stopping the run and pressuring the Quarterback. They aren't the best at stopping the pass, but in an ideal game, they'll control time of possession and get at the Quarterback enough times that it limits the opposition.

Defensive Ends
#50 DE Taniuchi Kai - Jr (21) - Height: 6' 1" - Hometown: Tor, Urrhed Island
#64 DE Mykhajlo Vyacheslavovych Kozlov - Sr (22) - Height: 6' 5" - Hometown: Wirr Tsi, Capital District

#55 DE Armand Portier - Jr (21) - Height: 6' 3" - Hometown: Eyrods, Myana Island
#59 DE Abélia Gauthier - Sr (22) - Height: 6' 8" - Hometown: Chromia, Capital District
#61 DE Paul Eberron - Fr (19) - Height: 6’ 4” - Hometown: Staramara, Urrhed Island

Taniuchi Kai is often loose trying to get the ball, while Kozlov is the speedster; Armand Portier, Abélie Gauthier, and Paul Eberron bring speed and energy from the bench.

Defensive Tackles
#65 DT Gérald Bullion - Jr (21) - Height: 6' 4" - Hometown: Qet, Urrhed Island
#50 DT Jaire Alford - Fr (19) - Height: 6’ 5” - Hometown: Dietrich, Ranoria

#57 DT William Michaels - So (20) - Height: 5' 11" - Hometown: Staramara, Urrhed Island
#69 DT Nevin Ingalls - Jr (21) - Height: 6' 1" - Hometown: Urrheddiao, Urrhed Island

Alford is a step-in-the-room and make the team better kind of guy. He's very strong and remarkably fast for his size, but his gap movement, discipline, and swim move in the pass and run game are what make him stand out. Gérald Bullion provides more size; William Michaels and Nevin Ingalls can spell them for stretches.

Outside Linebackers
#48 OLB Masresha Meba - So (19) - Height: 6' 1" - Hometown: Karonma, Moravica Region, Banija
#56 OLB Wakimoto Kaede - Jr (21) - Height: 6' 5" - Hometown: Lhor, Coastal District

#52 OLB Alexeyeva Verusya Dmitrievna - Jr (21) - 6' 2" - Hometown: Pria, Coastal District
#53 OLB Gruzdev Kvetoslav Vadimovich - So (20) - 6' 1" - Hometown: Urrheddiao, Urrhed District

Msresha Meba did well for a year, and can be described to be rangy, smartest dude on the field, and fundamentally sound. Wakimoto Kaede is more of a fundamental tackler while Alexeyeva Dmitrievna and Gruzdev Vadimovich learn from the bench. This is a very young core that will need to develop.

Middle Linebackers
#51 MLB Lucius Agot - Fr (19) - Height: 6’ 3: - Hometown: Istria, Wakiso District, Banija
#44 MLB Estella St. Jones - Jr (21) - Height: 6' 2" - Hometown: Lanar, Rainbow District
#47 MLB Joachim Montfort - Sr (22) - Height: 5' 11" - Hometown: Ming, Mountain District

With Rinaldi gone, it’s Agot that takes over even as a Freshman. Agot is an absolute tank of a man, as the sizeable middle linebacker is one of the toughest people to block in high school football. He is known as an elite tackler, and somebody who can shed all sorts of blocks. He plugs running holes, and while he doesn't quite have the speed to stick with running backs in the zone, his strong play recognition skills allow him to stay at the center of a zone defense. But he's got the fundamentals of the game all together. and he's got the size to stick with tight ends, so he's expected to be a force in the middle for years to come. Estella St. Jones will provide Agot protection, and brings more ranginess and coverage skills to the position, while Joachim Montfort is a blunt object best used to hit the opposition.

Safeties
#22 FS Siu Cantu - Sr (22) - Height: 6' 3" - Hometown: Myana, Myana Island
#31 FS/SS Do-Hyuk Kim - So (20) - Height: 6' 2" - Hometown: Eyrods, Myana Island

#37 FS Rona Candice - Jr (21) - Height: 6' 4" - Hometown: Tihon, Urrhed Island
#34 SS Su-Bin Kim - Fr (19) - Height: 6’ 4” - Hometown: Sanar, Rainbow Island

Siu Cantu is a coverage safety who can help in the box, while Do-Hyuk Kim loves to play through contact. Rona Candice is a ball hawk, while Kim Su-Bin is the risk taker. Safeties aren't expected to do much in this defense but assist in plays.

Cornerbacks
#42 CB Mastaya Vorpen - Jr (21) - Height: 6' 2" - Hometown: Chromia, Capital District
#21 CB Anira Hoss - So (20) - Height: 6' 10" - Hometown: Myana, Myana Island

#43 CB Ingrid Gustaffston - So (20) - Height: 6' 11" - Hometown: Urrheddiao, Urrhed Island
#33 CB Gary Harold - Jr (21) - Height: 6 ' 7" - Hometown: Qet, Urrhed Island
#29 CB Andrew Gilliam - Fr (19) - Height: 6’ 3” - Hometown: Staramara, Urrhed Island

Mastya Vorpen is a serviceable corners who are used to being on an island, while Anira Hoss can bring the heat. Lava Cornerbacks are expected to deal with situations on their own as the safeties are often helping the linebackers with the run.

SPECIAL TEAMS
Philosophy: STU special teams is all about field position and not much about scoring. This team likes to go for it on fourth and short, so they're fine playing second fiddle.

Kickers
#05 K James Dior - So (20) - Height: 6' 3" - Hometown: Myana, Myana Island

James Dior is a serviceable kicker who's reliable under 40 but not very good beyond that.

Punters
#10 P Percivel Gilbert - Jr (21) - Height: 6' 5" - Hometown: Urrheddiao, Urrhed Island - SPECIAL TEAMS CAPTAIN

Gilbert is a directional punter who tries to pin opponents deep.

Dietrich Stadium, constructed in 2012, features a capacity of 94,750 attendees, and is one of the toughest places to visit in college football.

Team Philosophy


Offensive Style: Richardson tends to direct their plays from the I formation, only adopting a shotgun look if they have a lethal passer along with an obvious need to pass. They adjust personnel and schemes according to talent, but generally run 11, 12, or 13 personnel (1 running back, 1-3 tight ends). The run game is done with a power concept (i.e lots of double teams), taking advantage of highly recruited, big, strong offensive linemen. These linemen will also be counted on to handle pass rushers one-on-one in most scenarios. The run is featured prominently, with the passing game featuring heavy play action, at 35-45% of passes, with a deep shots opened up by the aforementioned run game.

Defensive Style: Richardson's base defense is a 3-3-5 nickel look, generally running some sort of man coverage on the outside with safeties providing deep help. The team is in the first year of a new defensive system and without a domestic campaign, may need some time to adjust. As is, expect three down linemen, a standup edge linebacker, and five defensive backs in most situations to offer more speed and versatility to a unit that has traditionally been a "line up and play" defense. Strong side OLB will typically line up as a pass rusher and may rush or drop back into coverage depending on the snap, weak side OLB is typically off the ball.

Image
Generally, Ulvestad will be on the LOS as a rusher. Strong side backer to short side of the field, weak side backer to wide side of the field.

These are just here if you feel like using them! So it's a simple system
Runs: "SchoolName" or "Mascot" - the schoolname would be a run to the left, mascot to the right.
So for example - "Richardson" would be a run to the left, "Governors" would be to the right

Passes: protections and route concepts need to be called.
Protections:
60- standard pass pro without TE, sliding left
61- standard pass pro without TE, sliding right
50- TE stays in, sliding left
51- TE stays in, sliding right
40- TE chips then runs route, sliding left
41- TE chips then runs route, sliding right

Receivers: Not all of these receivers will always be on the field. In the rare case of going 5-wide, these labels are still used.
X- WR1
Z- WR2
Y- WR3 or TE1 - if WR3 is on the field, they get this designation
H- TE1 or TE2 - if WR3 is on the field, TE1 is H. If no WR3, TE1 is Y, TE2 is H
T- HB1

Defensively:

Usually the team will come onto the field with two plays called. The first play is the call, the second is their check. If the playcall is "Ranger Check Mickey," then Ranger is run unless a "check check" is called, which would mean Mickey is being run. If you want to do anything with this, feel free to make up playcalls.

Key Losses:
RG Jacob Silva: An All-Ranorian and first round pick, Silva was the leader of this offensive line the last couple of seasons, but between Brandon Roche, Uzziah Amondi, and Chris Grey, the interior of this unit is more than capable of fending off anyone in their path - he'll be missed, but not due to a lack of performance from the current roster.



Player bios:
QB Astrid Verona: Daughter of 5x all star QB Paul Verona and nephew of Ranorian World Baseball Classic pitcher Tommy Verona, Astrid has a polished, clean game that translated well once she stepped on the field. Expect a conservative approach and plenty of professional-level habits like looking off safeties, consistently clean footwork and throwing motion, and savvy movement in the pocket. That said, she's a conservative passer with a modest-at-best arm and has struggled to produce big numbers (under 4,600 passing yards combined in two seasons as a starter). She does, however, have a reputation as a tireless worker and the respect of this team and coaching staff. They're all confident that she'll make a big jump this season.

HB Elliot Roach: Roach was the 2nd highest rated recruit in Kohnhead three seasons ago, and he's shown why after taking the reigns as Richardson's top back. A two time All-Ranorian at running back before Cold Hill and Richardson were unceremoniously booted from domestic play, the dude's a workhorse and he will get his 300 carries. Roach carries on the tradition of Richardson's run game with pride, and Harrowitz taking the reigns as head coach isn't going to change the staff's emphasis on physicality.

DE Gideon Kearse: A truly generational talent, Kearse is a monstrosity, and now the spearhead of this Governor Defense. Coming in at a monstrous 275 pounds, he moves better than one would think and is a force against the run or pass with a disruptive playing style. Expect a lot of arm-over, "back door" type plays in the run game to generate TFLs and a wide array of pass rush moves. Whether he's batting down passes, stuffing runs, sacking the quarterback or punching the ball out, he is the definition of a disruptor.

DE Kaspar Ulvestad: Every power rusher needs a foil. Ulvestad is stronger than he looks now at 225 pounds, but his main traits are speed and a relentless motor. Ulvestad is primarily a pass rusher, but with Harrowitz stepping into the HC role provides enough flexibility to drop back when needed. With Kearse collapsing the pocket on the other side, Ulvestad can consistently get contain and rack up clean up sacks - and when Kearse does get caught out of position in the run game, Ulvestad has the make up speed enough to cover up a lot of those misses. Expect a huge season for both of these pass rushers.

ILB Kaiser Belfort: Belfort is a mauler of linebacker. He's mean as hell and will often look for a big hit before an interception, and frankly running at him is going to wear down runners more than this kid. Exceptionally likely to get in fights and draw flags, but his fans will point out that it's not his fault Kohnhead City makes their facemasks so damn grabbable.

The offensive line: We're not grouping them all together like this because we don't appreciate them. To the contrary, it's because we'd have to have a seperate entry for each member of this vaunted unit. At the tackle spots, Brian Shipman (Cassaidaigua) and Travis Handon are big, long players who each needed strong coaching to maximize their potential, and they've gotten it. They're the tonesetters and a nasty duo, and things don't get any less rocky on the interior. With Uzziah Amondi (Banija), Brandon Roche (Kohnhead), and Chris Grey (Chromatika) have all packed on the size necessary to maul whoever's in front of them on that front.

WR Angela Sauber: Sauber was the 9th rated recruit in Ranoria two seasons ago- she's got excellent acceleration and precise, deceptive route running, plus she's solid in a pinch with the jump ball. A huge talent upgrade at wide receiver for this team. For a quarterback like Verona without a cannon, she's a boon who can get open close to the line of scrimmage. Look for her to be used as a possession target.

WR Constantina Perrier: Perrier's a big bodied freelancer at wideout who can generate a ton of RAC, again, a perfect compliment to an accurate quarterback without a huge arm. She's excellent at finding holes in coverage and has been given plenty of opportunities in this offense to make reads and adjust routes at her leisure. She's enthusiastically worked with QB Astrid Verona this offseason to establish chemistry with her and make sure they're on the same page consistently. Home run threat no matter where on the field she gets the ball.

G Chris Grey: Grey's a nasty run blocker on the inside, if lacking in size for a program like this. Fear not, with his redshirt, Grey will bulk up plenty in a top-notch lifting program and be ready to contribute next season, hopefully.

CB Takeuchi Ichiko: This is the guy to watch out for. Ichiko stepped right into a barren cornerback room prior to NSCF 25 as a freshman and put on an impressive display given that situation - technical, patient, and more shutdown than gambler. He's now comfortably slotted into the #1 corner role and the team hopes to see him become an elite player on the outside.

SS: Totte Lindberg: A fortunate signing from Valanora, Lindberg will be key in a new scheme as a box linebacker slotted to start as a freshman. Lindberg was graded as the top recruit in Valanora and the #2 DB recruit among all NSCF nations prior to NSCF 26, and may well be an instant impact player. He will likely see plentiful opportunities to blitz the quarterback and - when in coverage - look to add another heavy hitter to a back 7 already featuring a near-rabid Kaiser Belfort.

DT Malchiel Lukwiya: You've seen Makang Secka, the Banijan Ballhawk. Enter Lukwiya, the Banijan Beast. Lukwiya hsecured a starting job at the end of training camp as the team's #2 DT, and the coaching staff is betting on his immense talent as a run stopper to help a loaded front 7 reach its full potential. Between Lukwiya, Kearse, and Ulvested, expect any offensive line to get everything they can handle and more.

Home Stadium:
Image
The Tundra, often snow covered, in Cold Hill was constructed in 1999, and can hold up to 85,000 people.

Team Philosophy:


At its core, the team's game plan, generally, is to rack up points and then make opposing quarterbacks uncomfortable when they try to catch up.

Offensive Style: Cold Hill is a pass-first, air raid, quarterback centric team offensively. Generally run the offense out of the shotgun in 10 or 11 personnel. (1 running back, no tight ends, or 1 running back, 1 tight end). As long as it's working, they see no reason to slow down scoring and give other teams a chance to get back into the game. Power style run game, tight ends and backs are usually plus pass protectors if they're starting. Expect a lot of chipping and double teams in pass protection. With Robin Sterling at the helm, expect a more dual-threat under center than Cold Hill usually employs.

Defensive Style: Base 3-4 Defense. In essence, make a bunch of plays and cause enough disruption to stop the offense. Outside linebackers serve primarily as edge rushers with very rare drop backs into coverage, while big defensive linemen clog up the interior. Heavy emphasis on pass rush. Scheme features a lot of blitzing, particularly from cornerbacks, and relies on linebackers to soak up tackles while the front men key on the passer. In the run game, expect a contain and bounce inside approach, to force runners straight into the linebacking core. Generally at least one playmaking safety, currently both Proko and Agnor Viridian are employed as weapons on the defensive side.

Key Losses:
CB Koman Tabor - Absolute stud and part of the best cornerback duo in football with Victoria Mio on the other side - and the best secondary overall with Proko and Agnor Viridian on the back end. Tabor was a technician on the outside who passers rarely had the audacity to target.

FS Agnor Viridian: One of many talented playmakers in the secondary, Viridian was the heartbeat of the best defense Buffalo have ever fielded, reaching that mark in two consecutive seasons. His loss leaves Proko as the main man on the back end and rips out a second piece of a dominant secondary.

OLB Corrin Silva - consistently the complementary piece to Candice Ferrett, Silva tore his ACL early in NSCF 25 and some will wonder if their dream season's crashing halt could've been prevented had he not gone down. That said, sophomore Kenneth Bray is more than ready to step into his shoes, and is certainly the more talented of the two.


Player bios:
Receiving Corps: This group is headlined by Nikolas Isaksen out of Valanora. The jump ball specialist has more than enough size to make most secondaries pay, and provided a spark as a pass target that Cold Hill had been lacking in the last couple seasons. He's a true #1 target, and broke Cold Hill's program record for receiving yards in a game last season. Heath Heinz is a solid number two and a menace in the red zone, but this is Isaksen's show.

And then of course, there's Heinz. Talented, excellent route runner, but not much motor. It's clear on film that Heinz shows much more effort on plays where he's the top target, or when he's in the red zone. As such, expect a disproportionate amount of touchdowns to reception volume. But when this guy's on, he's on.

OLB Candace Ferrett: The #10 recruit out of Chromatika four years ago, Ferrett is the team's premier pass rusher. Opposite her is Kenneth Bray, a fellow Chromatik with a ton of upside. With this secondary reeling from its losses, Ferrett is undeniably the leader of the front seven and one of two defensive captains.

CB Victoria Mio: The #2 recruit out of Chromatika four seasons ago now, Mio is a tall and instinctive corner. Whatever "it" is, she's got it, consistently making plays for the Buffalo, whether she's out-muscling even bigger wideouts or screaming off the edge on a blitz. Rarely out of position, Mio is a fan favorite and the consensus leader of this defense.

SS/OW Prokopios Vortigern Rooijakkers: Rooijakkers, often called "Proko" for short, is likely the most talented player on this roster. Coming in at 6'10", he's often employed as a box safety while getting most starting snaps in that role, though the Buffalo have no problem dropping him back deep to make x's and o's type coaches throw their clipboards when attempting a deep ball. Proko is more than athletic enough to play offense, and has been employed out wide, in the slot, at tight end, and even at running back a couple times.

QB Robin Sterling: A bit of a departure from Cold Hill's recent mold, Sterling is a dual threat. He can torch a team over the top with a cannon of an arm or gash them with god-gifted athleticism. Some growing pains are to be expected, he's coming from playing two seasons at a smaller school, and he suffers from lapses in judgement that may lead to turnovers, but the explosiveness was impossible for Chris Dale to pass up.

ILB Derek Pierce: A true freshman but the 4th ranked recruit in Ranoria, Pierce is expected to step in and be an instant impact player. He's a run stopping beast and effective as a blitzer. Had some consideration as a team captain even this early on, though of course seniors Victoria Mio and Candace Ferrett earned those honors. He's a natural born leader with an excellent work ethic.

DT Eden Park: A monster out of Quebec and Shingoryeo, this guy fought his way into the starting lineup early on a Buffalo defense that's hoping to make it three years in a row of fielding the best defense in program history. It'll be a tough ask after they lost six starters in the offseason, but Park is more than capable of handling his duties. Once Harvey Klein, a larger but less productive DT from Ranoria, fills out into his talent, the two will form a dynamic, monstrous duo on the interior.

The University of the Commonwealth returns for its ninth appearance in NSCF, and for the 8th time to the Mineral Conference. Last season frustrated players, fans and coaches following the loss of QB Marcus Crews for the season in the first game versus University of Alexandroupolis, which lead uneven performance from the offense and put pressure on the highly touted defense. A three way tie with the Redbirds and Trent State for the MinCon title wasn't really the idea in mind when the quest for a record tying sixth conference crown began, but it's the result that played out. Crews returned for the UAC season, but has chosen to opt out of NSCF, a decision no one can begrudge him, leaving Devon Stubbs in charge of the attack, with the expectation that Neal Antonelli will see playing time to help prepare him for the starting role next year. The Warriors lost 16 seniors from the National Championship & NSCF 25 team, although all of NSCF (and opponents in Baker Park) are not sorry to see the Ranorian Albie Vergol finsih his career at College Hill; having earned his B.S. degree in Biology a semester early, he elected to return to Ranoria to pursue a pro contract. It was the defense that took the biggest hit, as all four starters in the secondary and two each in the linebacking corps and on the line required a massive rebuild ahead of defending their Championship, which proved to be good enough for Ryan Benton's group to finish ranked in the top 6 for the fourth straight year after the playoffs.
The TJUN-ian schools (TSU/Green City) and Alexandroupolis return, along with a second New Gesem team representing Constantinople University, with AO nation Efnakia's Badfekna rounding out the sextet for this edition.
No one calls the MinCon an "easy" conference anymore after last campaign. Res ipsa loquitor, let the good times roll.

Gleason Field is the third largest outdoor sports venue in the Commonwealth, behind the BBP National Stadium and Keller Field (it's just slightly larger by official capacity than Collins Park and Rogers Stadium). It has been voted by fans as the second most iconic college stadium in the UAC, behind University of Endover's Scotland Stadium and ahead of University of Osheana's Jones Stadium. It also ranked third in an online survey of Best Gameday NSCF Fan Experiences that was commissioned by publications from several participating nations, including Baker Park's Sporting Times newspaper. Visiting fans both domestically and during NSCF are allocated the West End and the W-1 section (the lower end zone plus the adjacent corner area in white at the top of the photo).
We welcome all fans to Gleason and best of luck to your teams!

Chromatik High School Gridiron - Season Nine Preview, Part One

Season 1 Champions: Central Heights High School (MVP: QB Harold Jieter)
Season 2 Champions: East Omnio High School (MVP: WR Alessandro Mio)
Season 3 Champions: Mt. Niar High School (MVP: QB Sarai Gwenderyn)
Season 4 Champions: Mt. Niar High School (MVP: QB Sarai Gwenderyn)
Season 5 Champions: Flames of the Revolution High School (MVP: RB Nyata Antonucci)
Season 6 Champions: Staramara Tech High School (MVP: Edge Nicole Manstrom)
Season 7 Champions: Franscesca Larriet-Cortes High School (MVP: QB Liara Anderson)
Season 8 Champions: Vitoron School of Charge (MVP: QB Anne-Maurice Vivayavich)

Reminder: Tiebreakers are H2H Results then H2H PD. For three-way ties, overall PD is used as the first tiebreaker, and then H2H Results come in for the second and third teams. For ties involving more than three teams, overall PD is used.

Last season, the Robots came out of nowhere, and with the play of MVP QB Anne-Maurice Vivayavich, won the title. Will there be a dark horse this season? Or will one of the more established programs (Mt. Niar High School, Franscesca Larriet-Cortes High School, Staramara Tech High School, or Myana Northwestern High School) take back control? Let's take things conference by conference, and then we will look at the Top 10 schools in the country before a single snap is played.

Diamond Conference
Favorites: Lanar High School Rhinos, Pelar High School Hurons
Dark Horses: Tears of the Revolution High School Saints, Rainbow Central High School Cavaliers
Cellar Dwellers: Lanar Central High School Bikers, Twin Cities High School Gemini
Star Players: Lanar High School QB Steven Brenoir (Sr), Lanar High School SS Everson Griffith (Jr), Lanar Central High School WR Amanda Derulo (So), Pelar High School RB Jacoby Laure-Brissett (Jr), Pelar High School K Redwina Gard (Jr), Pelar High School DT Kevin Wheeler (Sr), Tears of the Revolution High School LG Redwina Ardent (So), Tears of the Revolution High School MLB Irina Jones (Jr), Rainbow Central High School TE Wilhelm Daniels (Fr), Rainbow Central High School OLB Henri Jefferson (So), Lanar Central High School FS Eric Djokovic (Fr), Twin Cities High School C Marx Jacoby-Jones (So).
The Rundown: The Lanar High School Rhinos and Pelar High School Hurons are on the path to another clash for the Conference Title. One one hand, Lanar High School has QB Steven Brenoir with Amanda Derulo as a target, while Everson Griffith will be lurking in the defensive secondary; for the Hurons, Jacoby Laure-Brissett will be a huge part of their rushing offense, while Redwina Gard is projected to be a top rated kicker out of high school and Kevin Wheeler will be a highly sought after run stuffer. If there are any teams to knock them off, it will be the Tears of the Revolution High School Saints and the Rainbow Central High School Cavaliers, with the Saints having stars on the line and the linebacking corps while the Cavaliers have a great Tight End and an Outside Linebacker some are calling could be one of the best. For the Lanar Central High School Bikers and the Twin Cities High School Gemini, this will be more of another year that passes by - though Eric Djokovic and Marx Jacoby-Jones will be fun watches throughout the season.

Pearl Conference
Favorites: North Sanar High School Riflemen, South Sanar High School Armadillos
Dark Horses: Jerome A. Samuelson High School Mimes, Chromatik Army High School Recruits
Cellar Dwellers: Penat High School Understudy, Knetyohai City High School Peregrines
Star Players: North Sanar High School DE Marik Waddle (Jr), North Sanar High School WR Ned Pill (So), North Sanar High School CB Larry Pinmichael (Fr), South Sanar High School WR Eden Joyeux (Sr), South Sanar High School WR Xavier Widdle (Sr), South Sanar High School MLB Jacques Jones (So), Jerome A. Samuelson High School FS Kim Byung-San (Jr), Jerome A. Samuelson High School TE Jerry Larx (So), Chromatik Army High School C Theodore Usania (Fr), Chromatik Army High School DE Oswin Jackson, Jr. (Jr), Penat High School QB Kandice Mott (So), Knetyohai City High School RT Eddie Paul (So).
The Rundown: Every year, it's the North Sanar and South Sanar rivalry that runs this Conference. New Freshman QB Raul Ibberon will have two All-Star seniors to throw to for the ARmadillos, while the Riflemen counter with the talent of new freshman CB Larry Pinmichael. Behind them, don't forget about the Mimes, with Jerry Larx roaming the middle of the field on post routes and Kim Byung-San being an absolute ball-hawk, while the Recruits of Chromatik Army High School possess talent on both sides of the line, their strength being in the trenches. The Understudy and the Peregrines are expected to maybe eclipse three wins apiece, most of their rosters being underwhelming - though Kandice Mott has stated that she might transfer after this season, being the only bright spot of the Understudy roster.

Mining Guild Conference
Favorites: Mt. Niar High School Anancondas, Z'ai'ai Central High School Hooligans
Dark Horses: Mt. Baker High School Abominable Snowmen, Winter Heights High School Glaciers
Cellar Dwellers: Randan High School Rapiers, Jatho Agricultural High School Farmers
Star Players: Mt. Niar High School QB Victor Rowles (Jr), Mt. Niar High School WR Tyler Geese (Sr), Mt. Niar High School FS Liara Gin (Jr), Z'ai'ai Central High School QB Terry Ryung (So), Z'ai'ai Central High School FS Ken Dwyer (Jr), Z'ai'ai Central High School LT Moses Leek (So), Mt. Baker High School ILB Simon Gerard (So), Mt. Baker High School RB Han Bi-Mi (Jr), Winter Heights High School CB Dorothy Yang (Jr), Winter Heights High School DT Paul Grayson (So), Randan High School MLB Lyle "The Hammer" Zokia (Sr), Jatho Agricultural High School FB Willard Liana (So).
The Rundown: Will Mt. Niar High School ever have a down year? Not likely, as the Anacondas return one Victor Rowles, the now-QB after Gwenderyn and Masakazu; He has a rocket arm and great pocket presence but could learn how to move more effectively. He'll be aided by Tyler Geese and Liara Gin on the defensive side, while the Hooligans of Z'ai'ai Central will be back in the mix with highly touted QB prospect Terry Ryung, a freakish athlete who is more of a scrambler, with run-blocking Moses Leek leading the way. For Mt. Baker to return to the conference title game, Simon Gerard must play like Park Mi-Hyeon while Han Bi-Mi does the most of the scoring. Winter Heights sees the best roster they've had since the restructuring of high school gridiron, with a star-studded defense on both the line and the secondary. Randan High has a gem in The Hammer, while Jatho Agricultural is lucky to have Willard Liana leading the way for their stable of running backs - Staramara Tech University has already expressed interest in Liana.

Snowy Fields Conference
Favorites: Umbar Hills High School Grizzlies, Brisara Trade School Businessmen
Dark Horses: Briara Central High School Hammers, Ming School of Business Traders
Cellar Dwellers: Dynasty High School Royals, City of Umbar High School Monkeys
Star Players: Umbar Hills High School TE Jackson DeLittle (Jr), Umbar Hills High School MLB Beatrice Hak (So), Umbar Hills High School DE Erik Kessler (So), Brisara Trade School QB Rico Divalles (Jr), Brisara Trade School RB Tary McLauren (So), Brisara Trade School LG Pan Guya (Jr), Brisara Central High School WR Ivan Nyer (So), Brisara Central High School CB Peter Juxon (Jr), Ming School of Business OLB Jessika Kyle (Fr), Ming School of Business TE Logan Vinte (Jr), Dynasty High School FS Sandra Hooper (Sr), City of Umbar High School C Han Kyung-Myuk (Jr).
The Rundown: This is the Grizzlies' conference to lose, and they know it. Brisara Trade School gave them a run last season, and will have the best chance to do so this timearound with Rico Divalles behind the helm, Tary McLauren in the backfield, and Pan Guya leading the way; however, Beatrice Hak shows flashes of Park Mi-Hyeon, and with Erik Kessler crashing down the edge, it will be difficult to trump the Grizzlies, who still have Jackson DeLittle on the offense. The Hammers have a great target in Ivan Nyer and a shutdown corner in Peter Juxon, but don't have the best of quarterbacks, while the Traders of Ming School of Business have a phenom at OLB but lack a consistent running game, despite Logan Vinte's great run-blocking. Of the rest, keep an eye on Royals FS Sandra Hooper and Monkeys C Han Kyung-Myuk, who both lead flawed rosters.

Breadbasket Conference
Favorites: West Shantarr High School Scorpions, East Shantarr High School Order
Dark Horses: Anfanhar High School Mystery, Pùr Equestrian School Riders
Cellar Dwellers: Pùr Heights High School Destroyers, Dragon High School Flames
Star Players: West Shantarr High School LG Mylera Jorley (So), West Shantarr High School RE Rea Atera (Jr), West Shantarr High School WR Enox Silverman (Jr), East Shantarr High School RB Benjamin Merik (Jr), East Shantarr High School OLB Ilena George (Sr), East Shantarr High School CB Michael Larson (So), Anfanhar High School C Matthias Woodpecker (So), Anfanhar High School RG Asphodel Myers (So), Pùr Equestrian School RB Perry Orr (Jr), Pùr Equestrian School WR Oliana Pier (So), Pùr Heights High School QB Frederick Killaman (So), Dragon High School SS Andy Kolar (Jr).
The Rundown: The Destroyer's run was a one-year thing - now with the seniors gone, they're left being a doormat, while the Scorpions and the Order will go at it once again. One one side, the Scorpions have presence on the line and up the seam, while the Order will own the middle of the field and have a flying corner. For the Mystery and the Riders, it's the offense that shines - the Mystery have one of the best lines in the entire nation, while the Riders have good pieces. Lastly, the Flames have one gem - Andy Kolar, the very physical safety. Just like North Sanar and South Sanar are the only two candidates in the Pearl Conference, West Shantarr and East Shantarr rule this conference.

Dairy Conference
Favorites: City of Lorentine High School Wizards, Cheonju Korean Institute Red Devils
Dark Horses: Crix Technical High School Chameleons, Crix Arts Institute Artisans
Cellar Dwellers: Cheonju High School Condors, Lorentine Central High School Majestics
Star Players: City of Lorentine High School MLB Britney Hines (Jr), City of Lorentine High School RT Heinrik St. Joseph (So), City of Lorentine High School OLB Karry Pleimoor (Sr), Cheonju Korean Institute QB San Coreen (So), Cheonju Korean Institute WR Lana Kans-Baptim (Jr), Cheonju Korean Institute SS Darin Kaia (Sr), Crix Technical High School QB Jack Niles (So), Crix Technical High School OLB Asmodel Propleier (Jr), Crix Arts Institute SS Saria Kollom (Jr), Crix Arts Institute RB Ren Gyung (So), Cheonju High School CB Carolyn Jones (Jr), Lorentine Central High School TE Samira Lottiver (Jr).
The Rundown: City of Lorentine missed a season, but return with a vengeance - the Wizards being led by Britney Hines in the middle of their defense and St. Joseph on their line. They may have an underclassman at QB, but the squad is loaded otherwise. The Red Devils, meanwhile, sport a rising star in San Coreen, a mobile passer, and Lana Kans-Baptim, a speedster who can really cause separation down the sideline. With Darin Kaia patrolling the secondary, the Red Devils will be clamoring for an upset. The Chameleons of Crix Technical will be missing Michaels, but Niles and Propleier will be a few cards short. Other than those three, the only other team that could really make a difference is the Artisans of Crix Arts Institute, with Ren Gyung hitting the hole and Saria Kollom hitting like a hammer; Carolyn Jones is a rangy corner for Cheonju high while Samira Lottiver is a possession-based tight end for the Majestics.

Wildlife Conference
Favorites: East Rhoni High School Kayaks, Harbour High School Shipmen
Dark Horses: Lhor Central High School Flying Jellyfish, Pride Academy Cyclones
Cellar Dwellers: Rhoni School of Architecture Gradients, Anderson H. Kim High School Chimera
Star Players: East Rhoni High School QB Evan Jerome (So), East Rhoni High School FS Fyra Plintiff (Jr), East Rhoni High School WR Anjela Bossaime (Sr), Harbour High School WR Ashton Giles (Sr), Harbour High School RB Declan Hammond (Jr), Harbour High School FS Édít Éloïse (Sr), Lhor Central High School DE Kyra Bones (Jr), Lhor Central High School OLB Aurana Mikel (So), Pride Academy QB Mikkela Ansoli (So), Pride Academy CB Lya Pale (Jr), Rhoni School of Architecture RB Amira Kong (Sr), Anderson H. Kim High School MLB Mauricio del Pata (Jr).
The Rundown: East Rhoni can't be kept down for too long - with Evan Jerome having a season under him, expect the Sophomore to improve his play, especially with the presence of Anjela Bossaime, a very good possession receiver. Fyra Plintiff being a hammer on the other end helps, too. Their chief opponent will be the Shipmen of Harbour High, who want to remain the class of the conference - with Ashton Giles still around, Declan Hammond being a physical bruising back, and the presence of Édít Éloïse. Lhor Central, lacking their star running back, still has the edge rusher of Kyra Bones and Aurana Mikel, which should make them one of the stoutest defenses in the country. For Pride Academy, this should be their best season since their formation, with Mikkela Ansoli a pocket passer and Lya Pale a sure-haded cornerback. For the Gradients and the Chimera, it'll be a rough year, but Amira Kong's presence between the tackles and Mauricio del Pata's tendency to cause fumbles cannot be overlooked.

Aqua Conference
Favorites: West Rhoni High School Warhawks, City of Larhai High School Rush
Dark Horses: Compass Coastal Academy Cartographers, J. H. Yadasky High School Heroes
Cellar Dwellers: Coastal Academy of the Arts Sculptures, Coast Guard High School Guards
Star Players: West Rhoni High School QB Isaiah Hunter (Sr), West Rhoni High School WR Darian Pollard (Jr), West Rhoni High School WR Amos Pickard (So), City of Larhai High School TE Clint Dawson (So), City of Larhai High School OLB Rila Kevex (Jr), City of Larhai High School WR Aveen Plink (Sr), Compass Coastal Academy QB Kevin Marr (Jr), Compass Coastal Academy SS Trila Wassok (So), J. H. Yadasky High School RB Isaiah Candy (So), J. H. Yadasky High School SS Heinrik Dessler (Fr), Coastal Academy of the Arts RT Wang Han-Gyuk (So), Coast Guard High School DT Gerry Hawthorne (Jr).
The Rundown: The Warhawks own this conference, and it isn't even close. Isaiah Hunter is a highly-touted prospect, while Darian Pollard will be his best target, with Amos Pickard also chipping in; City of Larhai High School also have two great targets in Clint Dawson and Aveen Plink, with Rila Kevex helping on the defensive end. Kevin Marr of Compass Coastal give the Cartographers a chance, but he'll have to compensate for the lack of good receiving options; Trila Wassok will be the defensive star. For the Heroes of J. H. Yadasky High School, expect Isaiah Candy to be the back that they ride, while the Sculptures and the Guards have one good lineman each.

Dietrich Stadium Locker Rooms
Richardson, Ranoria


Richard Steinheil, sixty four years of age, was pale as he stood in front of his locker room. The coach - normally hard nosed and stoic, suddenly looked frail for the first time that any of these young men had seen. Outside of his wife, perhaps the first time anyone had seen. He held one hand out to the rail of the podium to his right, not bothering to stand behind it.

Around the room, Gideon Kearse and Kaiser Belfort stood in the corner, still fuming, angry, ready to go another round, and tolerating only a poised but weary looking Astrid Verona's presence anywhere near them. Kasen Harrowitz stood with linebackers coach Kai Hillis, both watching Steinheil with concern carved into their expressions. Julio Fitzpatrick? Senior running back who'd had the best season of his career? Leaning back in his locker room fighting back tears, and Elliot Roach sat not far away, nursing a shoulder that may have been dislocated in a physical ballgame. All in all? They were crushed.

Steinheil stood for a moment, just long enough that it was awkward, until he realized he should probably say something.

"I'm sorry," were the first words out of his mouth. Soft, barely audible to those in the back. "This one's on me. You all played your hearts out, matched them snap for snap. Kabuye out coached me, and that was the difference in this game. Seniors and those of you transferring or declaring for the draft, thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for everything. I've gotten to know each of you in this locker room, and I'm proud to say that the people you're becoming will be great members of society, playing this sport at the next level or otherwise."

He paused, faltering a bit, "You all played against the strongest conference at the highest level of college football in the multiverse, emerged with a winning record, and made the playoffs - it wasn't the finish we wanted, but I'll be damned if any of you walk out of here not proud of what we've accomplished. You're all dismissed now. And like I said, I'm proud of each and every one of you."

Richardson, Ranoria
Four days after the loss to Northern Moravica


Richard Steinheil was breathing rapidly, leaned over his desk in his office not long after the loss against Northern Moravica. Kasen Harrowitz entered after a brief knock, leaning on the door frame.

"You asked to see me?"

"I'm going to be stepping down," the long-standing coach of Richardson's Governors stated, hands on his knees, "It was a courtesy the University offered me as an alternative to being fired." He brought himself to meet Harrowitz's eyes, "I put in a good word for you, I believe they'll address you shortly about taking the position."

Harrowitz pressed his lips together, nodding. He wasn't surprised by the news. "I appreciate the vote of confidence. What will you do?"

Steinheil brought one hand into view and ran it through the rough bristles of thinning hair, "I don't know. This team," the glass of a team photograph clinked twice against his fingernail, "It's been my life. Thirty two years now, I've been a part of this program. Twenty four as head coach." He rubbed his face with weary hands, "I'm not sure what to do now."

The Chromatik in the room sighed. "Well, if they do keep me in charge, I can tell you the first thing I'm going to do is turn on the heat in this office." He exhaled sharply, glancing at the thermostat, "Really, what is it with you people and the cold."

That finally got a good chuckle out of the old man, "Comes with the territory." He stood up and shook Kasen's hands, "I thought for a long time Eric Dietrich would be the man to take my place, and he's a great coach, but you." He shook his head, "Football is my life, coach, and you see things out there that I've never heard of. You're the right man for the job."

The following was published shortly after NSCF 25's conclusion

Richard Steinheil To Step Away From Richardson After Tumultuous NSCF Tenure

Image

Richard Steinheil led his team through 10 NSCF seasons, but it's time to entrust that job to his successor


No one can say that Steinheil's resume isn't an impressive one even leaving aside the several domestic titles he won prior to NSCF participation. In each of his 10 seasons, he posted a winning record. In ten seasons, he led his Governors to a 72-28 record in conference play, with the former mark being a record for wins in the Big 8, and he came away with a conference championship in NSCF 16, 17, 19, and 21 - the 2nd most titles in conference history. Throw that in with national championships galore and a runner-up trophy in NSCF 19, and he's the most successful coach in Governor history.

However, with that much consistent success, eventually one expects to see some hardware, some championships. Instead, while Cold Hill won four straight Big 8 titles, the Governors floundered. They've only made the NSCF playoffs in 2 of the last 3 seasons, each berth requiring an impressive run in the team's out of conference slate, and they haven't won a playoff game since NSCF 22 where they escaped Herzegovina City in the first round only to be shut down by Kohnhead City in the quarterfinals.

The high for this program in NSCF play came when they reached the aforementioned NSCF championship game in NSCF 19, a 24-20 loss to none other than Northern Moravica. And that seemed to leave a promise of rings in the future. Only...they never delivered on that promise.

Whether it was high flying offenses under Ifeatu Chineze and Ezekiel Bantoba or the team's traditionally stout defenses with Isaiah Bryce, Judas Wolfson, and Gideon Kearse, no formula has gotten them over the hump, and Richard Steinheil will as such take his leave from the collegiate stage for now.

"This wasn't an easy decision," the head coach assured, "I've been coaching this team for more than two decades now, the Governors program has been my life...but the best of us know when to walk away. We brought in Kasen Harrowitz two seasons ago now as our defensive coordinator, and he chose to be a Governor when he had his pick of the litter among other schools as a head coach. He believes in this program, and we believe in him. I've done all I can, and he can build off that foundation to make something better."

Indeed, Harrowitz has one hell of a pedigree. As the engineer behind the Firehawks defense, he helped that team take the NSCF by storm, stopped only by a Cold Hill team that was playing in its third consecutive title game, where FSU held those Buffalo to a season-low 20 points after they'd scored 75 in their prior two playoff games and steamrolled through their regular season on Deondre Rhine's arm.

Harrowitz's press was predictably brief. The defensive coordinator who's been the brains behind some of the best defenses in this tournament going back to his days at Felswyr State has never been one for the cameras. "We'll certainly see some scheme changes on the defensive side. I like a lot of what we ran under the previous staff but I think some adjustments will put our athletes in a better position to make plays."

And of course, the question had to be asked - what were expectations for the program under its new staff?

“You have my word that I’ll do everything in my power to continue the tradition of excellence,” Day said. He described expectations at the university as “Number one, win our rivalry games - those are Kohnhead City, Cold Hill, Loyola-Istria, and the University of the Commonwealth. The Buffalo are biting at our heels for the Big 8 wins record and I won't be the guy to concede it to them. And number two, win every game after that.”



Richardson, Ranoria
1 week before the start of training camp


Justin Kearse, the Ranorian Football League's all-time sacks leader and Richardson's defensive line coach, yelped when he got knocked flat on his backside in the early morning. Over him stood his exhausted son, Gideon, a man who'd led the NSCF with 17 sacks last season as the spearhead of Richardson's defense. He reached down to help his old man up, and Justin groaned.

"We're going to have to find you a training partner. Kasper or Kaiser, maybe. I'm getting too old to take those kinds of hits."

Gideon brought his hands to his hips and tilted his head, "Until we watch film, right? Then you could've done whatever it was we screwed up in our sleep?"

"Watch it, runt." He dropped the pad they'd been using during their drills, "I trust you to finish up with the sprints, I've got to get cleaned up, scouting some high school kids this afternoon."


Sierraville, Ranoria

Now, one should take note that for the Governors, they were about a week out from training camp. And Gideon Kearse wasn't the only one working out with a former pro. The team's starting quarterback, Astrid Verona, could be seen daily at an indoor field in Sierraville, Ranoria. Her own father, 5x RFL all star Paul Verona, may not have been the best in history, but he was good enough to make sure her form was sharp, movements practiced. Going into year three of her tenure as Richardson's starting quarterback, the consensus had become that she was a passable game manager - nothing special but good enough that she wouldn't lose her team any games.

Her goal, if nothing else, was to change that. Whether it was working with her uncle, National Team fireballer Tommy Verona on developing arm strength and throwing at odd angles, giving death glares to anyone who dared come within ten feet of her at the gym, or spending hours with her dad digesting film and working on mechanics, Astrid wanted this to finally be the year she exploded and showed the whole damn world she was a professional prospect. Being the passer for one of the most high-profile football teams in the nation, she couldn't avoid all the press. Astrid deftly skirted around loaded questions about the lack of passing production throughout her tenure at Richardson, rumors of a relationship with Krauts first basemen Jesse Griffith, and walked out of one in which a reporter asked her if she felt she was disgracing her family's professional sporting legacy.

Really, only RSSN star reporter Vick Hamilton was able to break through her well-trained coach speak. And that was when he asked how the team felt about Krauts linebacker Kaiser Belfort's antics, be that leading the team in penalties two years in a row, or taking on professional fights while still in college, in one of which he was knocked out. "Kaiser is a loose cannon," Astrid couldn't help but laugh, "But he's probably the hardest worker in the building, team captain for a reason. Every team has to have their fighters, and we all know that if any of the folks in Kohnhead City that city in Banija get to far out of line, he'll knock them right back over it."


And some other guy we mentioned . . .

So as we mentioned earlier, between last season and getting his ass kicked by
a former Renown Combat International heavyweight champion and Olympic bronze medalist
, Kaiser Belfort hasn't had a ton of time to get ready for football, but he has reportedly packed on about ten pounds and is looking as mean as ever. We know his conditioning, mobility, and coordination will all be at peak strength with his constant MMA training...the question that comes with the enforcer of this defense is whether or not he can keep a cool head.

Now Kaiser Belfort is indeed one of the player-selected captains of this team, paired up with Gideon Kearse on the defensive side. Belligerent and antagonistic, he's the enforcer of this defense and any fan who's been to games knows they can expect to hear the linebacker's...impassioned shouting cut through the brisk air of Dietrich Stadium, generally with the heavy hands of Gideon Kearse impeding his warpath. Belfort is a professional fighter first and that aggression carries over into his play, and where Kearse is the spearhead of the Governor defense, Belfort is its axis. While his mixed martial arts career may be the source of some controversy in the media, internally, there is no doubt as to his commitment.

"Kaiser is the centerpiece of our defense and a leader of this team," said linebacker coach and first year defensive coordinator Kai Hillis, "The team responds to his energy and he's never tolerated anything less than one hundred percent." Hillis chuckles, waving off a reporter who began to ask another question, "I remember his freshman year, first day of training camp. He was on scout team and I don't know what was said, but he got into a scuffle with Jacob Silva, a two time All Ranorian guard for us. Now, Silva had a good hundred pounds on him at the time, point being Kaiser doesn't care who you are or when it happens, he'll go after anyone he thinks has it coming. We emphasize with him to keep calm, but that guy is the furnace of this football team. Can't wait to see what he puts on tape this year."



Cold Hill, Ranoria
The Tundra - last play of practice


Robin Sterling rolled away from the pressure coming from the left side. Corey Mullins was a solid tackle, but once the ball was snapped, he spent more time tasting the sod of his home field than blocking - Candace Ferrett was beyond such trivialities by now.

The transfer quarterback had played enough football to feel the pressure coming behind him, and got the ball off before what would've been a hit had Ferrett not peeled off - and Nikolas Isaksen just got his fingertips on the cold leather of the ball before Victoria Mio punched it from his grip.

The defense of course responded with their jeering and all manner of taunting that only coaches' whistles could cut through. Sterling snapped his fingers and looked back at Ferrett, speaking up over the cacophony around them, "Good play! I wouldn't normally try Vic, but didn't have much time with you passing through."

Ferrett waggled a finger at the quarterback, "I keep telling you Robin, that modesty isn't going to win you many favors in the locker room unfortunately. Last couple quarterbacks were a bit more..." she pulled her helmet off while the team huddled around Chris Dale, "High strung?"

She joined the rest of the squad while Sterling rubbed his arms, wishing for the umpteenth time today he'd worn sleeves, "Working on changing that," he muttered.
Fan of football, the Murican kind. But soccer is cool too! Just not really my thing. C(:^D/-<
I go by Ran. Unless, of course, you want to type out Ranoria. That's your decision.

Like all Drawkians, especially international caliber ones, Sadeg State's players are a top notch group with much to offer skill-wise. The offense primarily operates out of the shotgun with a back lining up alongside the QB, but the most common under-center formation has to be the I. The pistol make a common appearance, and don't be surprised to see a Wildcat every once in awhile. The run/pass split is around a 55/45, but with Brand Manlio's preferred QB recruits, don't be surprised to see many designed passes ending up in scrambles for big chunks of yards. Drag routes, slants, mid-distance crosses, posts, and corner routes are the most common in SSU's playbook. Runs are often a generic pitch, runs up the gut, or - Coach Manlio's favorite - option plays. SSU is known for having massive talent on the offensive side of the ball, especially in the backfield, but also lining up wide. Watch for tight end passes for huge gains, they're a common target in this scheme.

And while the team is renowned for its offense, you can't discount the defense. Talented shutdown corners and DBs are the hallmark and the pass rush is fantastic, but pass defense in the middle of the field leaves a lot to be desired from the Linebackers. The biggest issue about the Skyhawk's secondary is that they go for the ball too much - while this results in lots of turnovers, a missed pick obviously results in an opposing receiver in the open field. Blitzes sit on top of the playbook at SSU, just like many Drawkian books. Don't expect to run a similar running play twice, the front 7 is likely to come up with a counter blitz on the fly and smack the back for a loss of yards. Man coverage is called about 70/30 versus Zone coverage, another reason why missed interceptions are dangerous. Cover 2 Man coverage with a 4-3 front is the most common play the defense will run.

Special teams is known for its trick plays, but they don't run them as often as, say, the Grid Corps would. The SSU offense would be much more likely to stay out in 4th and under 2 than bring out the special teams for a fake or a regular punt/kick. Speaking of punts/kicks, the return game for the Skyhawks is also fearsome, with massively fast and shifty players returning most balls, not to mention the regularity of laterals during returns (not that they do much of that outside of special teams though). As far as kicking, the punters and kickers kick about as good as, say, college kickers or punters. Nothing special there, although they do err on the side of power over accuracy (good luck praying for a kick 6).

Also, see this dispatch about Drawkian physiology. If you don't want to deal with that though feel free to just handwave or ignore it, it's fine by me.

Similar to Sadeg State and other Drawkian teams that play on an international level, Cavsar University's roster has a lot to offer skill-wise. As far as tactics are concerned, Scott Linhart is an extremely balls-out style coach deserving of a +5 modifier. The spread offense is utilized most often, prioritizing space and the open field for the skill position players. Linhart exclusively recruits mobile quarterbacks, as he expects QBs to make plays with their feet (either designed or on the fly). Running backs are more likely to be quicker, lither guys than big bruisers, but there's usually one that can pack a punch if necessary (often the fullback). Vertical passing plays are quite common, and it's rare for passes to go to the flat or right past the line of scrimmage. Sadeg State is known for aiming at tight ends often, but Cavsar leans on them heavily. Thankfully, they nearly always net a Top 5 TE prospect every time they go for one, so it's not much of a weakness. The receivers, as you might guess, are quick and agile, but perhaps falter when it comes to catching in deep traffic. The playbook is probably 65/35 pass/rush, with shotgun formations being a vast majority of what you'll see.

The Cavsar defense is not known for being bruisers, save for the D-line. You can say that the Cavsar defense or secondary is their biggest weak spot, but their defensive line is always extremely exceptional. It's not uncommon for every starter on the D-line to come away with 1+ sacks on the game each. The secondary can leave some things to be desired, but they're good enough to keep the passing game at bay to allow the D-line to really work their magic. Like Sadeg State and many Drawkian defenses, man defense is often the default and will be what to expect. If you can beat man coverage, you'll have a way easier time against Cavsar, but don't count it as a win just yet. They probably blitz a little less than SSU, but they will still pepper them in often. After all, the D-line usually keeps the pressure happening just on their normal scheme. The defense defaults to nickel coverage most often, but any formation with 4 D-linemen can be expected.

The CavU special teams are not renowned for a lot of trickeration, but you'll see something special every once in awhile. However, they are absolutely aggressive on 4th down, and will usually keep the offense on the field if it's under 3rd and 5. Also, the Gladiators go for two every time, and I mean every time, unless it's a late game situation where a PAT is specifically necessary to preserve or make a win. The punters and kickers don't get a whole lot of work, but the return game is something to fear as well. The blocking is very solid and the quick shifty returners can make a lot happen in the blink of an eye. As far as kicking, the punters and kickers kick about as good as, say, college kickers or punters. Nothing special there, although they do err on the side of power over accuracy thanks to those long Drawkian legs.

Speaking of which, see this dispatch about Drawkian physiology. If you don't want to deal with that though feel free to just handwave or ignore it, it's fine by me.

Drawkian NSCF Storylines
The various players to look out for in this NSCF 26 season


Sadeg State

QB Battle: With fan favorite QB Nick Parks departing a couple seasons ago, Toby McKinley took the reigns for the Skyhawk offense. He did a decent job, but nothing to return Sadeg State to the heights of their NSCF 23 championship run. He was a good placeholder for a bit, and now the Skyhawks have to look for a new legend to live under center. Freshman Anderson Fox got limited reps last season as McKinley did most of the work in his swansong season, but novatim Isaac Hext made a lot of noise as a high school prospect. Some fans believe that Hext has what it takes to lead the Skyhawks to greatness even as a true first-year, while others think Fox's limited but existent NSCF experience gives him the edge. One thing's for sure, Brand Manlio will be willing to test both in live combat according to what he's said in interviews. This may lead to some growing pains in the short term, but in return Sadeg State could find out with QB can really lead to the team to greatness in the coming seasons.

Running Backs Room: With no clear superstar in the backfield, Sadeg State will once again have to gameplan with a running back by committee. Juniors Augustus Velas and Jeremy Gilmore have a good strength-then-speed one-two punch, but freshman Cloud Kelly has had some nice runs when he got snaps last season. Don't be surprised if Dennis Grant, the senior fullback, is also utilized out of the backfield. Also, if Isaac Hext ends up winning the starting QB job, he'll be another valuable asset on the ground thanks to his elusiveness and surprising speed. Fox's more standard pocket passer skillset won't be as useful in the running game, but he could pop off a short scramble when needed.

Depth at Receiver? The receiving core for the Skyhawks has a chance to really fly high this season. Senior and junior Jim Tacoma and Elywn Pim are both sure-handed options, and Clint Roy could blossom out of the slot. Outside of this, though, speedster Henry Huxley and new recruit Marc McKee could make some noise if they're utilized correctly. Not only will opposing teams have to deal with Drawkian height in the secondary, but the elevated skillset of this surprisingly deep receiving line will cause even more issues for Sadeg State's Horizon opponents. You can't forget about Gordon Dallas and Gregory Seymour at tight end, either. Both have been useful safety valves in past seasons, and as upperclassmen, they will likely put together their best seasons yet.

Defensive Line Struggles: While Sadeg State isn't exactly known for defensive line prowess, they've had some great pass rushers in their past. This season will definitely be more of a rebuilding year for the Skyhawk front seven. Sure, both starting DTs are upperclassmen, but all the defensive ends are still pretty inexperienced. Kasey Mason and Guy Robertson have potential but they still haven't looked like they're good enough to be taking a majority of snaps. We expect to see outside linebackers like Ed Brooks and Judd Maxwell to get a lot more snaps on the line of scrimmage, especially with the relatively solid depth in the linebacking core. It may have to be a more piecemeal arrangement for the defensive line and linebackers, with lots of rotation happening. Jarrett Schwartz is an experienced defensive coordinator, however, so we believe he'll be able to pull off a gameplan that puts less pressure on the Skyhawk secondary and more pressure on opposing QBs.

The New Jackson: Sadeg State managed to snag the highest-ranked defensive prospect Drawkland has seen in a generation coming out of high school: Danube Jackson III. Jackson is a second generation football player, with his father Danube Jackson Jr reaching All-Pro honors in the GLD twice during his respectable career as a safety. His son, who's always worn the number 3, is a purely skilled cornerback, being able to nullify any receiver he has in one-on-one coverage. Of course, this is against high school competition. If he can translate this skill to not just the college level, but the NSCF level, he could be a serious contender for his entire collegiate career. If he falters, though, expect "The Noob" Jackson to be an unfortunate moniker following him forever.



Cavsar

Is Darian Lewis the answer? Following the NSCF 23 season, Cavsar didn't make a big splash in the international recruiting scene, but they did manage to snag a decent QB recruit from Cassadaigua, that being Darian Lewis. With the matriarchal society in Cassadaigua, the male prospect wanted to play overseas where he'd get more due. The Gladiator fanbase accepted him with open arms, and he even won the starting job over Lane Proudfoot in his first season ... but since then he hasn't shown much upside. It's not necessarily his fault; Cavsar has been floundering aimlessly in the Horizon Conference. Regardless, his play hasn't inspired anybody into thinking he's an all-timer, nor does it seem like Cavsar will break any glass ceilings with him under center. Lane Proudfoot may retake the starting job for his final season, but after that? Cavsar may be shopping for a hot new prospect or transfer for next season.

Mike Banks Back Issues: With the rest of the Cavsar squad being very hot-and-cold, the one consistently bright spot has been Mike Banks. The sensational do-it-all running back is entering his final season with something to prove. He's already shaping up to be a first-round pick in the GLD, and will perhaps take on Jack Hoy's mantle on the Grid Corps if he can perform at the pro level. For now, though, he'll be struggling to carry the Gladiators to a respectable record. If they make any noise this season, it'll be off the back of Mike Banks ... and let's pray he's strong enough to handle the workload.

Jonathan Kimbrough: Though he hasn't gotten a lot of attention, being on a subpar squad in a conference with much more impressive teams playing ball, Jonathan Kimbrough is still balling. He's quietly making a case that he's one of the better tight ends in Drawkian college history. Most of Cavsar's success in the air the past few seasons has been thanks to Kimbrough's sure hands, route running, and ability to rack up YAC. Even if the rest of the receiving core has been cold, Kimbrough's always been on. He's been a spot for Darian Lewis (and Seb Rosario before him) to go when there's nowhere else to go. He's already received an invitation to play with the Grid Corps, and he'll definitely see more playing time there after he graduates following this season. Will he be good enough to keep the air attack moving and remove pressure from Mike Banks? Will that be enough for Cavsar to achieve something offensively this season? Probably not, but you never know.

Scary Secondary: All the starting corners for Cavsar are upperclassmen. Dan Waters and Cody Ricchetti are coming in to their final seasons, with nickel corner Jorah Holt being a highly skilled junior. Of course there's some younger depth, but it'll be hard to beat Cavsar in the air regardless. The Gladiators have always boasted a beastly defensive line, but their lack of upperclassmen and the stacked defensive backs seem to suggest that Cavsar's defensive gameplan will be a little different this season. The one "weak" spot would be the safeties, where junior Chandler Storm is the most experienced starter. Many pundits expect new recruit Roy Offerman to be starting at free safety rather than the slightly more experienced Jeremy Aslan or Lorne Gunnarson, though both those guys should be able to hold their own. Expect the safeties to be rotated frequently, regardless.

Special Teams Notes: The departure of dedicated kick returner Ozzy Otten will be sorely felt by Cavsar this season. Most Drawkian college football teams have a dedicated kick and punt returner who will do almost all the special teams work, unless injuries become an issue. Ozzy Otten was an all-timer, unanimously the best returner in Cavsar history, and now he's gone on to the GLD. Gladiator fans can still watch him in a similar role on the Grid Corps, but for their own team, they'll be looking expectantly at novatim recruit Maverick Toloni. He's got big cleats to fill, but maybe he'll surprise us all. Meanwhile, kicker Percy Westcott and punter Steven Italo are still pretty young, and we're hoping to see some improvement from their lackluster underclass seasons. The Gladiators will need all the help they can get.

The Upper Westside University, as its name implies, is a university located in the upper western portion of Kardashia, the capital of the Glorious Free Republic of St. Kanye. The UWU is one of the country's largest universities both in terms of area (1092.5 acres) and attendance (almost 70,000 students on average), and is known for its diversity (counting Banijans, Cassadagans, Fleftics, Sherpalanders, 69Xers and more among its student body), its prestigious engineering and arts programs, and its highly popular and successful varsity gridiron squad, the Red Pandas, who are participating in the upcoming twenty-sixth season of the NSCF.

The Red Pandas are an offensive-leaning team, preferring to attack through the air, and for good reason. Tim Hunt's quick fire and accurate throws are not wasted on his three-headed monster of a receiving corps: receivers Deshawn Fredericks (the flashy, acrobatic one) and Tyron Hall (the speedy, elusive one), and tight end Jonald Cooley, considered a once in a generation talent and the first freshman to crack the UWU's starting lineup since Gary Bradman (now with the national team) several years prior. The running game is decent, and the offensive line is serviceable, with Gabe Pendelbury being the best player among the front five. Moving over to the other side of the pigskin, players to watch out for include Ryan Blake, a great pass rusher; Brexton Bellinger, the hardest hitter on the team; Troy Quinn, the defensive captain and a shutdown corner; and Vincent Black, who led the Red Pandas in interceptions last school year. Matt Ingberg aims to be the next James Rasputin, but while he's getting up there with Surge's star kicker on accuracy, his range could use a little improvement. Caleb Zimmerman and Tanner White get the job done at punter and long snapper, respectively.

Despite hailing from a country with some recent success in the international gridiron stage, the Red Pandas do not expect to breeze through the competition. They are debutantes, babies in the eyes of such established programs like Joe Gibbs U and Loyola-Istria. All they want to prove at this point is that they are not pushovers, they could put up a fight. If they lose, they'd at least want to do so by seven or even ten, rather than forty or fifty. If they win, all the better. So what kind of record should we expect from the boys in red (yes, they call it red, shut up) and white? Head coach Fabio Forelli says "No fewer than six wins, and no worse than fifth in the group [of six]. For our maiden season to be a success, not just one, but both of these goals must be met."

After replacing former head coach Anita Stanton for her to focus on the responsibilities given by the Gridiron Football Federation of the United Adaikes (GFFUA), former Offensive Coordinator Pris Allison was promoted to lead the Silverleaf Goblins and defend their crown in the Sequoia Conference of the 26th edition of the NSCF. The replacement of Stanton was expected, not just with her appointment to the national federation for gridiron football, but with the notable change in focus of Stanton in the non-conference games and the playoffs, ending Silverleaf's season with a 9-5 record from a 9-1 record at the end of the conference games. It was also not surprising that Stanton talked to the press after their loss in the First Round playoffs of the NSCF 25, telling anyone who would listen that she "resigned" from the Head Coach position after the four straight losses. Many expected that it was all calculated moves, especially when the Silverleaf University Sent out a press release with Allison taking over the reins of the Goblins gridiron.

Offensive Linemen Coach Huxley Palmer was promoted to Offensive Coordinator concurrent with his present designation. With Allison in the Head Coach position, the Silverleaf University hired former Goblins quarterback Madalyn Levitt (from Class 2005) to be the QB Coach for the next five seasons. Allison and Palmer are also given a brand-new five-year contract with their promotion. Wide Receiver Coach Keeley Pitt and Offensive Linebacker Coach Conrado Woods are under contract with the Goblins in their last year. While Pitt is looking to be resigned within this year, there are rumors that Woods would just like his contract to end and not be renewed. There have also been talks that Woods will be following his rumored girlfriend, in the person of Anita Stanton, to work for the GFFUA by the end of his contract.

Last year's roster had 133 Silverleafians playing for the Goblins Gridiron. By the end of the season, 48 Graduate players and 5 Seniors left the team. With 53 spots open on last year's roster, head coach Allison opted to enlist 53 players to have another 133-player roster for NSCF 26.

The Norris Stadium, the home stadium of the Silverleaf University Goblins, was named after the former University President Fitzroy Norris. Norris was the President of Silverleaf University when it received the Autonomous Status from the Department of Education in 2003. Autonomous status is the highest recognition an educational institution that offers collegiate degrees can receive. After the successful debut of the Silverleaf University Goblins in the Sequoia Conference of NSCF 25, the administration ordered an expedited renovation of the stadium to have its total capacity improve from 12, 593 to 42, 593

Coaching Staff
HC: Milton Donnelly (53)
OC: Rickie Shah (56)
DC: Addison Lyons (41)
STC: Brad Suarez (69)
QB Coach: Jennie Villa (47)
RB Coach: Mitch Ellington (39)
WR Coach: Adriana Schroeder (66)
TE Coach: Genevieve Bennett (44)
OL Coach: Lara Goff (55)
DL Coach: Fiona Todd (57)
LB Coach: Sally Pace (66)
Secondary Coach: Clyde Richmond (38)


Offensive Scheme: This is an option offense at its finest, built on the speed and agility of the quarterback and the running backs. Shah and Donnelly have cooked up an offensive scheme that will pound the ball down your throat running the football but also has blistering speed all over the field. Donnelly is on record saying that the strong arm quarterback is one of the most overrated aspects in football. In terms of their passing offense; short, quick, and crisp passes are what is required and they like to get Johansson on the move a lot. While three receivers start, the team plays a lot of three back sets and loves hybrid receivers who can lineup in the backfield as well. This offense will score a lot in a loaded Big Eight conference as they have in every season.

Defensive Scheme: The defense runs a very aggressive 4-2-5 that is built on speed at all three levels in particular at the linebacking group. The defensive line is the most emphasized part of this in particular a big nose tackle in the middle is required. Generating pressure will take some of the load off of the linebackers shoulders who need to have quick instincts and be able to blitz if necessary. Coverage is also easier on the secondary as there are 5 of them. This is a an uncommon base defense but Addison Lyons has assured everyone that it will work at this level. Over the course of three seasons we have seen mixed messages defensively, while in conference the defense never tends to do well that can be attributed to the extremely high levels of offense we see from the Big Eight schools. Lyons is not on the hot seat per say but if Kohnhead once again fail to win the Big Eight we could see her as a scapegoat.


Depth Chart (starters in bold)
QB: (C) Emilee Johansson (Junior) - Chromatika
Anthony Newhouse (Senior)
Julius Beasley (Freshman)

Emilee Johansson had big shoes to fill last season coming in for the legend himself in Byron Joseph who has led the Kohnhead World Bowl team to a quarterfinals appearance. Joseph made the semifinals in KCU's first season in the NSCF and Johansson brought us back in her first season. She has had ups and downs throughout her first two years but has clearly established herself in the upper echelon of college quarterbacks. Johansson's biggest achievement was probably the 23-20 win over FSU last season avenging three season's worth of demons in the process. While some crazy KCU fans will insist she is better than Sarai, she isn't but can be a capable backup for Chromatika and a star in the NSCF in her own right. Johansson has the speed to run (she is the quarterback of the best option offense in football) but is probably a better passer than Byron Joseph ever was.

RB: Rowena Hastroff (Senior) - Chromatika
Mark Flynn (Junior)
Luis Beil (Freshman)
Hector Wilder (Sophmore)
Yusha Stewart (Freshman)

He's gone, after four years in which he wrote such a brilliant story as the best running back in college football in his final three seasons and capped it all off with an offensive player of the year award we have to move on from the legend that was Herman Whitworth. After spending all of her career on the bench pretty much, the lightning spark that is Rowena Hastroff will finally get a starting opportunity in her senior season and is eager to prove herself. Hastroff's position on the bench had nothing to do with her work ethic, talent, or any of that it was simply the fact that when you're on a roster with the best running back in college football you aren't going to start. Hastroff still has built a solid career so far with almost a combined 3000 all purpose yards in pretty much a 50-50 split between running and receiving but this year she will get a chance to take over. Mark Flynn has some power and could be the back on the goaline although Hastroff will reportedly be allowed to show her goaline and short yardage situations. Beil has some juice from the bench, the freshman will get some carries in a run-heavy offense.

WR: (C) Kalu Alazar (Senior) - Banija
Keith Gray (Senior) - Northwest Kalactin
Blitz Taurus (Junior) - Ranoria

Doris Holt (Sophmore)
Stuart Farmer (Freshman)
Ashley Stott (Freshman)

Kalu Alazar was the best offensive player in his year out of Banija and became our #1 receiver in just year one due to his incredible route running which was perfect in our short passing game. He has also become a threat in the redzone as his frame allows for contested catches has now surpassed the 1000 yard mark in two straight seasons with Johansson at quarterback. While Northwest Kalactin is no longer sending schools to the NSCF, Keith Gray remains on the team as our speed demon and return man. Gray spent much of his first season as the fourth receiver who we brought onto the field in some cases to manufacture touches to as he's just so fast and elusive with the ball in his hand. His second season he was in the slot but last season he operated as a burner on the outside where he remains for this season. The often in trouble off the field Blitz Taurus holds his position over in the slot. Taurus was suspended for pretending to piss in his helmet after scoring against Cold Hill and accidentally went home to Ranoria after a win his frshman season because he was so drunk. Taurus cooled off a bit off the field but heated up on the field in his second season showing his talent and the coaching staff hopes for an uneventful (or as uneventful as Taurus can be) from him off the field.

TE: Tom Lundgren (Sophmore) - Valanora
Danicka Hess (Sophmore)
Victor Braun (Junior)
Annie Mathis (Freshman)

The two tight end offense of last season with Lundgren and Hess showed a lot of promise but both struggled at times throughout the season. With the same big three receiving core returning, it remains to be seen how much time we spend with two tight ends out there who primarily catch passes but both are talented enough that they will certainly get good playing time. Braun serves primarily as the blocking tight end while Mathis was an oft-injured High School player who has some talent and a large time and is a piece for the future.


OT: Deidre Gott (Senior) - Chromatika
(C) Danielle Raynor (Senior)

Jennie Harper (Freshman)
Myah Wardle (Senior)

Gott and Raynor have established themselves as one of the best tackle duos in college football over these past few seasons with Gott as the better run blocker with his size and Raynor holding down Johansson's blind side as an absolute beast. Raynor has the captain's patch and the two should help solidy one of the many strengths of this offense. Jennie Harper is expected to be the next in a star-studded list of Kohnheadians to hold the quarterback's blindside with the highly touted recruit serving as a backup swing tackle this season with Wardle really being here as another veteran presence.


OG: Nathan Long (Senior)
Pa Soley (Senior) - Banija

Aiden Garfield (Junior)
Seth Cowan (Junior)

Both starters last year in Nathan Long will be returning to the team as a senior after having been on the bench his freshman year although he is a former top 10 recruit from our nation. Pa Soley as well transferred from Banija two seasons ago made the jump from community college last season and struggled throughout the first 3/4 of the season before finding his groove late in conference play and into the OOC and postseason. The coaching staff's showed their trust in Soley by keeping him as a starter and they were rewarded with his late season play.

C: Mark Harper (Sophmore)
Carey Goodman (Freshman)

After backing up Briana Cleverland for a season, it's now Mark Harper's time to shine as the sophmore takes over as the starter in the middle. Carey Goodman will back him up as a low end recruit who barely made the team.

DE: (C) Robert Lawrence (Senior)
Taylor Coley (Senior)

Amari Wright (Freshman) - Schima Bas
Lucy Hardy (Sophmore)

The two starters remain the same with the beast of Robert Lawrence looking to build off of an 11.5 sack campaign next to the unspectacular Taylor Coley. Behind them is a player sure to get a lot of playing time and someone who has stated he's ready to be a backup but will be pushing Coley as hard as possible in freshman Amari Wright from Schima Bas. I wouldn't bet against Wright personally, with his high motor, insane work ethic, and high football IQ he seems destined to be the next in a long list of successful KCU pass rushers.

DT: Dakota Cannon (Junior)
Grant McManis (Senior)

Patrick Spencer (Sophmore)
Myah Duggen (Junior)

Once heavily recruited Dakota Cannon continues to be the best pass rusher on the interior, and has been a very good starter since day one. McManis will be by his side again as the bigger bodied run stuffer while Spencer and Duggen rotate in from the bench.

LB: Mark Lundin (Sophmore) - Valanora
Greg Mcloud (Sophmore)

Hugo Stubbs (Freshman)
Roman Burch (Senior)
Guy Davie (Freshman)

Mark Lundin was a big get for this defense and was thrust into playing time immediately as the signal caller for the defense. Next to Lundin will be Greg Mcloud who graded out very poorly in coverage last season as the third linebacker but has potential and was a high level recruit in his own right. The Mcloud-Lundin starting duo will surely be a strength throughout the next three years with Hugo Stubbs looking like a more than proficient backup.

CB: Kristen Werther (Sophmore) - Ranoria
(C) Finn Steele (Senior)
Ralph Villa (Senior)

Mary Davison (Junior)
Sally Hope (Freshman)
Clay Ellwood (Freshman)

Harlen Gill and on year player Leon Elliot have graduated leaving a big hole in the corner room. Finn Steele is still here, now with a captain's patch and remaining as the second corner because last year's fourth corner and high potential player Kristen Werther has become the projected #1 corner. Werther has a lot of pressure on her but she has that swagger that you can't teach a cornerback. Villa will fill in for Elliot in the slot and figures to be unspectacular in that role.

S: Samuel Church (Junior)
Rex Bottlenick (Freshman) - South Newlandia

Brandon Wallace (Senior)
Kendall Ponce (Freshman)

Samuel Church returns for his junior season as the starting free safety after a very very good sophmore season which was helped in part by the talent in the rest of the secondary. Next to him will be the 4th ranked recuit out of South Newlandia in Rex Bottlenick as the strong safety, Bottlenick has a bright future here at KCU. Wallace will be a veteran on the bench and Ponce is a project who ideally doesn't see too much playing time.

K: Seth Potter (Senior)

P: Carter Wolf (Senior)

Offensive Scheme: This is quite simply an air raid offense which is reliant on skilled receivers a quarterback who's accurate, smart, and has a strong arm and will pass 70% of the time approximately although depending on the progression of running back Sellers this could change. While some may say it's a basic offensive appraoch it works the way it does and should allow especially in a high scoring Big Eight for Swisston City to consistently put points on the board. Running backs will have a job out of the backfield catching passes and will still get a decent amount of carries, we will carry tight ends on the roster however they will not start and will mostly be used in red zone packages.

Defensive Scheme: The defense will operate out of a base 4-3 formation and will utilize a lot of the common cover two defense. The linebackers need to know how to cover yet also need to know how to stop the run and blitz if necessary. The defensive line will as expected feature pass rushers and at Swisston City they are not really emphasized relying on schemes, blitzes, and finding weaknesses to get pressure as opposed to basic front four rushing. The corners will stick to a side of the field and not on a person although man defense is the base and the safties will each try to take away a half of the field deep without a roving strong safety that many teams use.
