NationStates College Football - Season 31

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 thiry-first 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.

Post-NSCF 30 Ranks

NSCF 31 Recruiting Spreadsheet (TBA)

...


With 40 entrants, there will be five conferences. Each conference will have eight teams that are split into two divisions of four teams each.

In this ten matchday fixture there will be both a double round robin within division (six games), and a single round robin against opposing division (four games). How it will work out, for scorination purposes, is that a full round robin (7 matchdays), will be played out first, before last three matchdays feature the single round robin. At the conclusion of the conference stage, the top team in each division will face off in the conference championship game, which will decide the conference title.

Twelve teams will make the Playoffs: the five conference champions, the four highest-ranked schools ranked by OSPI or a tentative replacement on line and, finally, three wildcards selected by the NSCF Committee. These twelve teams will then be seeded in the bracket purely by OSPI or a tentative replacement. Higher seeds will have a 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, or its proposed alternative.

Brooklyn Beck (S2:E12) Season Finale

Postby Drawkland » Sun Jun 09, 2024 7:58 am

"The Laid Plans"

The next morning, the Grid Corps gathered in an athletic practice facility in Dongnae-Halifax County. It was time to begin their practice in preparation for the Round of 16 against Delaclava, but much more importantly, they had to finish the Past, Present, & Future media event. The meet-and-greet portion went off relatively smoothly the night before, but now they gathered on the turf to show off some skills and talk shop in a more active fashion.

Obviously there weren’t going to be any live snaps in pads for the players that weren’t currently on the Grid Corps roster, but they ran some drills and routines. Lane Proudfoot surprised the rest of the quarterbacks assembled by taking a drill seriously: the one practicing handoffs to the running back.

“You’ve all probably heard the same advice for handoffs. The fundamentals are important, obviously.” Proudfoot explained, twirling a ball between his fingertips. “However, my advice is to keep your mechanics identical when taking snaps for passes and runs. Too many QBs only consider how they handle the ball during a handoff versus play-action. They don’t consider how those motions look in comparison to a straight passing play. When you can merge these looks to be the same, you’ll find even more success when running the play-action.”

“It also helps when the defense doesn’t expect you to pass the ball more than six times a game,” Dustin Beck chuckled from a few feet away.

“I’m over 30,000 passing yards in 8 seasons, by the way,” Proudfoot shot back. “Weren’t people still calling you a running back 8 seasons into your career?”

“Hey, come on, let’s keep it civil,” Dakota Edison calmly put himself between Proudfoot and Dustin Beck. The situation defused rather quickly after that.

Brooklyn Beck was mostly just surprised that Lane Proudfoot had any sort of passion for the game of football. Every time she’d seen him on the field, he looked bored, mentally preoccupied, or simply emotionless. It was honestly remarkable that a guy like that was able to lead a team effectively, but you couldn’t argue with the results his teams produced. Some guys with the biggest passion can’t drag their team to a championship game, much less a title.

Things got more interesting as the QBs started throwing routes to the Grid Corps receivers. Eventually the receivers took one-on-one snaps against the defensive backs, with one of the QBs trying to get the ball to them.

“I could get used to this!” Logan Oakley chuckled as he zipped a dime to Griffin Saylor on the sideline. “I love the way he runs that out route.”

“Who, Saylor?” Brooklyn asked, looking closer. “Let me try that one.”

Next time Brooklyn came up with Saylor on the line, she asked him to run an out against Kasey Benitez, the defensive back on the coverage for that snap. Brooklyn got the ball, watched Saylor cut, and flicked the ball over to the sideline. Saylor caught it easily, having shaken Benitez on the cut, and tapped his toes without issue.

“Man, that reminds me of how Jules runs those outs.” Brooklyn mused to herself. “Blast from the past!”

“He was pretty good at those sideline snags,” Dustin agreed.

“Still is!” Brooklyn corrected. “I assume, at least. Not like I’d know.”

“Do you mean Julian Gallagher?” Logan asked curiously. The name sounded familiar to him.

“Yeah, we called him Jules back in high school.” Brooklyn narrowed her eyes at the Cavsar QB. “You do know him right? Considering the fact that he plays for your school and everything.”

“Yeah, yeah, I guess I know him.” Logan shrugged sheepishly. “Come on, he was a novatim receiver and we have great depth. I don’t think I’ve thrown to him outside a few practice snaps.”

“Well …” Brooklyn hesitated. It almost felt wrong that she wanted to give advice to the quarterback of her school’s rival. Even worse that her dad was right there in the conversation. Still, Brooklyn remembered what she and Logan agreed to the previous day at the meet-and-greet. They both needed to ball out next NSCF season. The days of Drawkian mediocrity had to end.

“Well, what?”

“Maybe you should try throwing to him more often.” Brooklyn tightened her lips. “He really is a solid receiver.”

“Yeah, I’m sure he is.” Logan rolled his eyes. “I don’t know if you know this, but there’s a reason he got recruited by Cavsar. We were trying everything in our power to recruit you, and-”

“Yeah, I’m well aware of why Coach Linhart sent him an offer,” Brooklyn replied coldly. “All that did was put me in an even tougher situation for my college choice. Not to mention it put Julian in a really tough spot as well. He had to turn his back on a lot of friends and family to commit to your school.”

“Listen, I’m sure he was pretty good with you in high school, but college is different. He has no business being a premier option in a high-level college offense like ours.” Logan tightened his lips. “I’m not trying to be rude, it’s just the way things are. He’s lucky he’s kept his scholarship for next year with how many good receiver recruits we have.”

“Didn’t you just say you’ve barely thrown to him?” Brooklyn crossed her arms. “Give him a chance. Give him some throws on the sidelines. He’s dependable, he makes good breaks, and he has good instincts. If he just gets a little bit faster, which he should be since he’s still growing, he’ll be an elite threat.”

“I’m not the one that sets the offensive scheme, you know.”

“You’re Logan frickin’ Oakley, man. If you say you want to throw to a guy, I bet your OC bends over backwards to make it happen.”

“I’m just saying that I can’t promise anything!”

“I know, I know. I’m just asking you to give the kid a chance. He’ll surprise you.”

“Alright, alright, fair enough.” Logan walked back up to the line for his next throw, leaving Brooklyn and Dustin by themselves for a moment.

“Fraternizing with the enemy?” Dustin raised an eyebrow, after staying silent for the majority of the conversation. Brooklyn couldn’t tell if he was joking.

“I gotta hook up Jules somehow,” Brooklyn replied quietly. “I already feel bad enough that I sort of left him to die out there in that disgusting town. It’s the least I could do at this point.”

“You better hope it doesn’t come back to bite you in the ass.” Dustin smirked. “Imagine how you’ll feel if Oakley there throws a bomb to Jules to beat Sadeg State? He might not have gotten that opportunity otherwise.”

“That’s a cool made-up hypothetical, Dad.” Brooklyn scrunched her face in response. “I suppose, in your extreme worst-case scenario, I would take it on the chin and offer a sportsmanlike handshake and hug to Jules and Oakley, just like any other loss. If I play good enough, that scenario will never come to pass anyway.”

“You’d be surprised,” Dustin muttered, but that was the end of the exchange.



The rest of the weekend went great. The Grid Corps won their game against Delaclava by a convincing 24-7, everybody believed Drawkland was prepared for a solid title defense, and the Becks went home satisfied. Thankfully, they were back home in Drawkland watching the loss to the eventual champions Sarzonia on TV, so their outrage was private.

Dustin and Brooklyn took a commercial flight home from Quebec following the Delaclava game. While the plane cruised over the Quebecois capital of Joongyeong, Dustin nudged Brooklyn in the shoulder to get her attention and pointed out the window.

“See that?” Dustin said, and Brooklyn inclined her head to look. “I believe that’s the St. Croix campus down there. You can kinda see Stade St. Croix from here.”

“Classic NSCF venue there,” Brooklyn nodded. “Maybe I’ll get to play there someday soon.”

“How soon do you think?” Dustin asked with a raised brow.

“C’mon dad, you already know the deal.” Brooklyn took one more look at the stadium as it passed before leaning back into her seat. “It all depends on the circumstance, and how I play at camp in a few weeks.”

“Yeah, I know all that.” Dustin turned to look right at Brooklyn. “But what do you think?”

“I think …” Brooklyn trailed off before answering. She’d always considered the raw circumstances of her roster spot at Sadeg State, and the potential for getting the starting position. Somehow, she’d made those considerations like an outside observer. She hadn’t thought about it from her own perspective.

“Mindset is important, BB. I think you had that revelation last year at camp, when you needed to reframe your progress. Showing your strengths rather than harping too much on your weaknesses. You have to have your mind in the right spot. Think of this camp as your opportunity, as if the starting spot is already yours. For better or worse, you’re at your best when you’re less cautious and more willing to make the big play.”

“That’s a ringing endorsement.”

“Seriously, Brooklyn.” Dustin leaned forward. “Don’t stand idly by waiting for it to come to you. This is your career. The development you get comes from the work you put in. Do you believe that you’ll outduel Jimmy Chapman this year?”

“I do,” Brooklyn breathed. It took a moment of hesitation first, but her answer was resolute.

“Are you going to lead Sadeg State to the playoffs this year?”

“I am.”

“Will you be at the helm when the Skyhawks take on the Horizon next spring?”

“I will.”

“That’s my daughter.” Dustin stuck his hand out for a low five. Brooklyn returned it emphatically.

“It’s gonna be me under center.” Brooklyn nodded, and as she said the words she knew her heart believed them. “The world better be watching.”

This was meant to be posted at the end of the World Bowl 48 thread, but I took too long to finish it and didn't want to post over Sarzo's final RP. Season 3 begins soon!

Dietrich Stadium, constructed in 2012, features a capacity of 82,750 attendees, and is one of the toughest places to visit in college football. One of the largest stadiums in the country.

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. 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 offensive linemen. Richardson's general philosophy is to pound the rock down the opposing team's throat and eat away at the clock to make things easier on their defense - but they're modern enough to know how to maximize that style with the play action attack. This season in particular, the team has a wealth of big weapons in Mugisha Mulogo and Hezekiah Thomas at tight end and Benji Merik and Ragnar Sampson in the backfield - their emphasis will be on physicality and beating up their opponents in both the run and pass while being the hardest team to tackle in the NSCF. *Richardson does not pass on the goal line.

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 third year of its defensive system after this unit led them to a 12-1 mark in Harrowitz’s first season before a stunning season-long performance a la Felswyr State’s NSCF 22 campaign ended in a championship. 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 was traditionally a "line up and play" defense under Richard Steinheil. Wide side OLB will typically line up as a pass rusher and may rush or drop back into coverage depending on the snap.

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:
Totte Lindbergm Packard Goss, and Rodney Knight: Richardson for years has fielded the NSCF's most dominant secondary, with a couple of loaded corner classes helping there. Knight, a converted corner, offered tremendous man ability from his free safety spot and Lindberg was arguably the best player on the team in his final two seasons. Packard Goss, of course, was a stalwart on the defensive side and provided an excellent matchup against the big receivers roaming around the conference (looking at you, Enox Silverman)

QB Isaiah Hunter: Easily the most successful quarterback in program history in NSCF play, Hunter was an uber efficient player who displayed the ability to work within and adapt to changes in a pro style offense. A two time NSCF champ, Hunter started his career with wideout Contantina Perrier as his main weapon and finished with a pair of tight ends getting most of the passing production.

In both scenarios, he was incredibly successful - a two time NSCF champion, he won at least one playoff game in each season and posted a 41-11 record in the regular season. The program's career leader for NSCF passing yards leaves some big shoes to fill - and South Newlandian Scott Yadav is ready to go as a true dual threat who will be much different than the typical pocket passers fielded by this Governors squad.



Player bios:
CB Packard Goss: The man who's been second fiddle to Ichiko for years is finally getting his crack at the top CB spot on this team. Goss's rare length make him a nightmare in jump ball situations and he's part of a deep secondary that many argue was built specifically to counter Cold Hill and Loyola's electric receiving corps. Munanire Tembo has been promoted to the second cornerback on this team, and Vilde Lauritzen, after being mostly a role player last season, will earn many more snaps. Rodney Knight - who came in with their class as a cornerback - has really settled into his role as a deep safety.

SS: Totte Lindberg: A fortunate signing from Valanora, Lindberg was 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 had an instant impact for a team that went 12-1. He's the dynamic leader of the team's deep secondary.

QB Isaiah Hunter: A surprising signing given Richardson's low-volume passing attack, but Hunter shocked the team with how casually he won the starting quarterback job his freshman season, showing up with a firm grasp of the playbook he'd been given to study and more arm talent than anyone else on this roster. Hunter, who came in as a bookish and reserved player who let the veterans be the vocal leaders, has blossomed into a merited captaincy role - he's looking to have his best performance as an individual yet despite the loss of top wideout Constantina Perrier.

HB Ragnar Sampson: Following Ratzupalfu's exit from the NSCF (we will dearly miss our Egretfriends), Ragnar elected to transfer to Richardson University. While Benjamin Merik is the nominal starter, the two will likely split carries, clocking in at a combined 500 pounds between the two of them. He's the latest legacy player fallowing a legend in Elijah Sampson, a former RFL MVP, and big things are expected out of the young gun. He and Merik are going to be the core of an offense who's focus is to absolutely bulldoze anyone and anything that stands in front of them.

DE Julian Anneliese: A violent power rusher with a tendency to hit hard and ask questions later, Anneliese is a power rusher with a high ceiling and a lot of energy, he's a force against the run and the pass. Along with Ojare Kahara, he's part of the best edge rushing tandem in the NSCF.

DE Ojora Kahara: As the son of former Banijan soccer NT winger & captain Gitonga Kahara, dominance runs in this kid's blood. He's used to pressure and fame, he was the nominal starter on his first day with the program. He and Julian Anneliese are a lethal combination as the bookends for this defense - nothing is going to come easy for opposing offenses on their merits alone. Both are elite athletes in most metrics, and where Anneliese's violent abandon is his specialty, Kahara's smooth and precise movements make them perfect running mates.

ILB Lyn Dairon: A do-it-all backer, Dairon's instincts and excellent capacity to digest film make her a perfect compliment to the massive Kerron Nicholas at linebacker. Her biggest weakness will be being swallowed up by offensive linemen who get to the second level - but fortunately a beefy defensive front makes that less of a risk. With her iconic bleach-white hair and countenance that befits a model, she was scouted by many modeling agencies in Chromatika before choosing to stay with playing gridiron, at least through college.

C Abdullah-Aadi Makavan: The Kinjestad High School graduate is a massive human being and locked up the team's longsnapping job quickly with his impressive capacity there. Big AAM is raw - but he'll probably get some snaps in decided games in a season where he's being groomed to be the monstrous centerpiece of this offensive line. Has really hit it off with Rylan Rodgers Jr, having volunteered as a snow-bear-sitter for Klaw on a couple of occasions - after Rodgers' roommate, Isaiah Hunter, he's certainly the big bear's second favorite of Rylan's teammates.

TE Mugisha Mulogo: A Banijan sensation, Mulogo is a 6'7" freak built in a lab - Mulogo has been the biggest playmaker in the passing game for Richardson over the last 2 seasons, having posted a thousand yard receiving season in NSCF 30. Extremely quick off the line and out of his breaks, Mulogo's biggest issue is with his temperament - big guy likes to fight, and while this Governors program encourages a nasty edge, discipline is paramount. Mulogo is critical to the team's plan on offense this season of being incredibly difficult to tackle.

TE Hezekiah Thomas: Coming in behind Mulogo, Thomas is even bigger - though not quite as fast. The freshman is a stalwart blocker and a physical specimen - between himself and Mulogo, this Governors passing attack may be just as punishing as their run game.

QB Scott Yadav: An exciting prospect out of South Newlandia, he breaks the mold of a true pocket passer that Richardson fans are so used to. He didn't have a great senior season and he isn't going to wow you with his arm strength, but he's a great dual threat who scored 18 total touchdowns as a senior in an otherwise putrid offense (12 passing, 6 rushing) - and it's worth noting he was better in his sophomore and junior years when he had some help. Yadav's accuracy could use a bit of work too, but with a year behind solid mentors in Isaiah Hunter and QB coach Eric Sanders, the coaching staff has voiced their confidence in the progress he made as a freshman - they're ready to see what this kid can do.

Roger Jackson: A guy who really exploded in training camp, Jackson was a bit of a sloppy 340 pounds coming in as a freshman, but after working under Richardson's strength program for a year, he's become a monstrous 320 and was a disruptive complement in the middle of the DL. His younger brother, Terry, looks like he's in the same boat, and has locked down a starting position.

HB Malik Starcevich: Malik comes in as an electric prospect out of Cardenao - he's a true do-it-all running back, a smooth receiver and an elite runner all in one. While he'd be able to challenge for significant snaps in most rooms, Richardson's fielding two of the NSCF's best backs in front of him, so reps will be sparse, but he's no less enthused for it.

Team Philosophy:


At its core, the team's game plan 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. For a team with complete confidence in Viktor Rowles under center, this looks to be the most aggressive passing attack in the NSCF.

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. Tendency to give up a lot of big plays but make plenty themselves.

Key Losses:
CB Nicholas Hussain: A young gun with a knack for athletic interceptions, Hussain was a fan favorite and a rare highlight reel on the back end. A true number one corner who really gave the Buffalo a threat on defense, he'll be sorely missed in the secondary.

TE Samajae Dallas: A transfer from Elephant Valley, Dallas was the best tight end this team's seen since Jabari McNair. Not the best blocker, but they didn't need him to be! Dallas racked up over eight hundred yards despite shockingly inconsistent quarterback play last season - he'll be missed as a vertical threat in the middle of the field who feasted on open zones with defenses so concerned with the wideouts.

Player bios:
[spoiler]Receiving Corps: This group is headlined by Enox Silverman out of Chromatika. The next man up in an incredible run Cold HIll's had at wide receiver, he'll be getting the most looks of anyone in this group. Heine Stølan, proved to be a lethal WR2 a season ago, and Earl Silverman displayed exellent chemistry with Viktor Rowles down the stretch. Behind them, freshman Jordan Martinez out of Utah continues Cold Hill's run on top wideouts spanning back to Nikolas Isaksen - the young man's track speed and spectacular ability to reel in highlight reel catches will earn targets this season.


Viktor Rowles & Paul Shepherd: Rowles is easily the most polarizing player on this roster. After going 6-1 in seven starts in a trial run filling in for an injured Youngblood, Rowles was expected to pick up right where he left off as a starter. Instead, he tanked hard. In his first seven starts, Rowles passed for just five touchdowns against nine interceptions as one of the most prolific offenses in the NSCF collapsed on his arm. He was benched in week eight for Paul Shepherd, who threw up a thousand yards and nine scores in three games before breaking his wrist against Richardson. With another opportunity, Rowles came back hard, throwing fourteen hundred yards, fourteen touchdowns and just two picks in the next four games including a playoff showdown - he slowed down against St Croix in the semifinal, but it was still enough to get the win and advance just before a blowout loss to Richardson in the championship.

He'll be the nominal starter, but he'll have a much shorter leash than he did last season with a rocket-armed Paul Shepherd chomping at the bit. If Rowles slips up, he won't get another chance. And if they both screw up? Probably best not to - they've got talented freshman Dante Flowers behind them.

C Dhairya Taylor: #3 recruit out of South Newlandia, Taylor has the size and will to excel in Cold Hill's system. An excellent pass blocker by nature, Taylor's secured a starting spot in her second season and is now the leader of this offensive line.

DE Erik Kessler: Hailing from Chromatika, Kessler is a pure speed threat with a mind to dissect film study. Kessler surprised by earning snaps despite his slender 210 pound frame as a freshman and provided Cold Hill with a bit of teeth on a struggling defense in their championship run. Now with enough weight on him to secure a starting role, he's was a strong contributor last season and looks to continue to be disruptive.

HB Hebron Naphtali: A brutal if injury prone runner, Naphtali plays with such intensity that his body has trouble handling it. Despite an extensive injury history, Naphtali never missed a game in high school, even with a broken arm. The former prom king projects to get the bulk of the carries, for whatever good that is in an air-raid offense.

ILB Kenny Parham: Brutish inside backer who's rumored to have eaten running backs and confirmed to have made one cry during a game, he's the counter to the "running game wearing you down" strategy - his goal is to relegating your backs to the ice bath for the next week following the game. After an up and down freshman campaign, he's filled out his frame nicely and is looking to make a big jump.

DT Philbert Aitken: The freshman came in and immediately impressed at camp despite his physical limitations - his low center of gravity and technical proficiency made him a headache to deal with in camp and it's earned him a starting role as a three tech defensive tackle. He'll be rotating plenty, but expect him to get most of the third down snaps.

He doesn't quite have the size that you'd want in this defense yet, but another year of weight room training should sort that out without much fuss. For now, he's going to play ~60% of the snaps and get used to the college game - next season is when he's expected to be a star.

McNair Athletic Complex
Richardon University, Ranoria


Malik Starcevich is a pretty strong running back. Really the kind of guy a program can rally around and turn into the bastion of an offense, so when he arrived at Richardson University for the summer preseason, not just the camp, but the good stuff in no pads, workouts, acclimating to the playbook, he was pretty confident. The warm summer air was great to get the team conditioned for now, making it easier when the cold came later in the season. Perfect weather, and he heeded the call of running backs coach William Dierdorf to get started. He'd studied the playbook pretty extensively in the past couple weeks, and offered a smirk when he shook the young coach's hand, ready to showcase his professionalism.

Then a shadow loomed over him, and he turned around to see a pair of massive frames, their engorged musculature threatening to rip through what were already sleeveless tank tops, and chuckled. His new teammates towered over him, and he chuckled, "Must've gone to the wrong position group fellas, you look more like defensive ends than running backs," he extended a hand in greeting, and the larger of the two took it, nearly shattering his metacarpals in the process. "Malik," he offered, "Nice to meet ya.

"You're in the right place Malik," the big man nodded, letting go, "I'm Benji, this is Ragnar. "

The less-egregiously-massive of the two offered a half-assed salute, but with their names out, Malik recognized them - because what recruit doesn't go through the guys at his position before committing? Of course they would be pretty recognizable anyway. Ragnar's dominating performance in the NSCF championship would go down in history, and Benjamin Merik would be an elite starter in most programs. But they didn't look like running backs - these titans were certified, board approved, government vetted and internationally acknowledged freaks of nature, and this was his competition?

And so a kid that had been playing a whole different game than his high school competition, for the first time, felt his eyes go as wide as saucers when it clicked that he was in for more than he bargained for.

"Holy shit, you're running backs!?"





Roster Turnover:
Harrowitz Turns To Next Generation To Carry On Richardson's Dominance




After Harrowitz's fifth season, the head coach hasn't just survived a full class of players coming through, but thrived, delivering a pair of NSCF titles in just five years. But with that, many key cogs in his team are gone. The veteran players in NSCF 26 who bought in to their promoted defensive coordinator's program in Gideon Kearse, Kaiser Belfort, and Astrid Verona, and now a full wave of his own hand-picked recruits. Takeuchi Ichiko and Packard Goss leave the cornerback room in back-to-back seasons. Rodney Knight and Totte Lindberg make it three starters being replaced on the back end, all drafted in the first fifty picks. Their most successful quarterback of the NSCF era is gone, and an offensive line that bulldozed through the tournament took some losses.

So what positions will the Governors' season hinge on - and who are the big names stepping into the shoes of legends to watch?



Image
Scott Yadav throwing a pass during camp
Quarterbacks:

There are some massive shoes to fill for sophomore Scott Yadav. He's going to be replacing the most successful Governors quarterback of the NSCF era in Isaiah Hunter. A surgeon with the football, the Chromatik passer started four straight seasons for the Governors, posting a 41-11 regular season record and delivering the program's first two NSCF titles. He's their career leader for passing yards against NSCF competition, and went in the second round of the RFL draft this season.

But Yadav? He doesn't seem too worried about the whole situation. "I've got the best team and coaches in the sport around me," he answered when asked about the pressure of succeeding Isaiah Hunter, "Isaiah is awesome, taught me a lot, but I've got a different game than he did, I'm ready to make my mark here." Yadav was likely referencing his capacity as a true dual threat at the position. Yadav has elite speed, especially for a guy at his position, and in both high school and the last two spring games he's made defenders look silly chasing him down. While he isn't the pinpoint passer that Isaiah Hunter was, he's got a good ability to read the field and make the right decisions. With quarterbacks coach Eric Sanders being such a stickler for mechanics, it'll be interesting to see how much his accuracy has cleaned up since joining the program.

The young elefriend seemed none-too-worried about the pressure of producing for a team that's preparing to defend an NSCF 30 championship, and the rest of the team is certainly looking to him as a leader, naming him as one of their six captains this season. Backing him up is junior Sandra Jameson, who struggled in the team's spring game, going 7/15 for 55 yards and a pair of interceptions. So hopefully he doesn't get dinged up.

Of course, Yadav's lack of stress may not wholly come from his confidence in himself. This is a ground-and-pound team, after all, and the guy lining up behind him in the I formation, well, he's pretty good.

Running Backs:

Ragnar Sampson during the NSCF 30 Championship


Kasen Harrowitz is a defense-first head coach, but his influence is known on offense - he wants his team to be the most physical in the sport, and with the best running back room in the NSCF, he's got the personnel to do it. There's not a lot of turnover here, and this room defines the offense. Benjamin Merik alone could have filled this role - clocking in at six foot four and a whopping two hundred and sixty pounds, he's a human battering ram. Merik's gotten significant playing time in each of his three seasons, and entered his junior year as a starter - but the Governors had an opportunity to make a huge move and they took it.

Ragnar Sampson, after putting a dominant freshman season on tape with Elephant Valley University, transferred after the Red Elefriends decided they weren't gonna be able to play with us anymore. He's a bit smaller than Merik, sure. And maybe those who have called him a "generational talent" are reaching, but the son of former RFL MVP Elijah Sampson is nothing short of a star in the making. He earned his role in the offense last season, fighting from a true backup, to splitting carries, to finally becoming the workhorse at the tail end of the campaign. After Merik posted three 100+ yard performances in the first five games, Sampson posted five in their final nine, and he's up for a massive workload this season while Merik will serve - per reports - as a true backup as well as a fullback and short yardage specialist.

Imagine, you see Sampson coming off the field and finally think you have a break only for his even bigger running mate to come in and bludgeon you even more. It's a truly terrifying duo, and both are likely going pro next season - this is their magnum opus.

And hell, behind the two of them, freshman Malik Starcevich is no slouch. He's not likely to get a lot of work this year outside of blowouts, but the Cardenoan is the next man up - this room will be in good hands with him next season. This is a room that's two men deep with proven elite caliber running backs, and the guy behind them, while untested, is talented enough that plenty of coaches would be willing to give him that chance.









Interior Offensive Line:

With two time captain Clay Lindsey and fellow guard Minkah Sunner leaving for the draft, this Governors offensive line has a lot of continuity, but two very large - literally - holes to fill for the front five. Brian-Willie Richardson comes in from South Newlandia along with tackle Niklas Patel, but talented as they are neither are a sure bet to earn significant snaps as true freshmen. It'll largely be up to junior and first year starter Niklas Schneider to fill Lindsey's spot, but the right guard is more of a question mark. Brian-Willie is the popular bet, but can an eighteen year old fresh out of high school handle the physical rigors of the Big 8 conference on the line of scrimmage? No one else in that room has gotten significant snaps, but fortunately with three returning starters, whoever it is that gets slotted in will have a wealth of experience lean on and learn from.

Image
Defensive end Ojare Kahara against Loyola-Istria
Front Seven:

Ojare Kahara and Julian Anneliese, after playing rotational roles as freshmen, exploded onto the scene in their sophomore campaigns as instruments of chaos. The twin pass rushers practically mirrored one another with ten sacks and a dozen tackles for loss a pop, with Kahara's god-gifted athleticism and Anneliese's downright violent mannerisms giving them their own unique flair. With a ridiculously stacked secondary behind them last season, that formula was more than enough to force errant throws galore and beef up turnover numbers, but with a lot of talent heading for the pros on the back end, there will be pressure on the pass rush to be even more productive than a season ago. Without Totte Lindberg, Rodney Knight, and Packard Goss - who combined for nine interceptions - it seems Richardson's insane run on defensive backs as of late has finally come to a close.

But that won't rattle these two. Kahara's the son of Gitonga Kahara, a former captain of the Banijan national soccer team. Pressure is nothing new to this family, and he's the kind of guy who has the capability to step up to whatever task is asked of him. And his running mate? Anneliese is too bold to be shaken, based on that man's demeanor, he expects nothing short of dominance from his football team, and the only way he knows to lead is by example.

Going into what will likely be their final seasons as collegians as defending champions, they'll be relied on to hold the point of attack for a defense that's been the best in college football twice in the past five seasons - and that's despite lining up against the NSCF 30 Most Outstanding Player in Bobby Dials three times. If they perform the way they're expected to, then no one will be surprised if both uber talented pass rushers are selected in the top ten wherever it is they decide to play. For now of course, their concerns aren't on the professional ranks - they're on bringing home another gold. They've got decent depth behind them, too. Super senior Juneau Carter has never gotten starting snaps, but he's not a liability either and can set the edge and pressure the quarterback when called upon as a rotational guy. If one of the monsters go down, Carter's more than capable of stepping in and holding down the fort.

With Blake Johnson and Roger Jackson pushing the pocket, the defensive line is fielding four returning starters and three All-Conference award winners, while behind them, the cornerstone of this team remains in senior Kerron Nicholas. The 6'8" obelisk of stalwart defense returns for his fourth and final season as a Governor with Lyn Dairon flanking him as the team's faster backer. Kerron Nicholas is coming off his second consecutive one hundred tackle season, and while his instincts in coverage are average, his incredible range and wingspan make him a threat to bat down plenty of passes and a pain to throw over - not that that's his game. He swallows runners whole, the defensive counterpart to the team's massive pair of running backs. Lyn Dairon's no less enthusiastic of a tackler, waiting in the wings to take over as the team's defensive play caller.

Image
CB Munanaire Tembo celebrating an NSCF 30 victory
Defensive Backs:

This is where things could get a little hairy. Richardson has had an insane run on defensive backs - so much so that former #2 recruit Rodney Knight had to switch to free safety just to clear up a frankly stupidly stacked corner room. Takeuchi Ichiko and Packard Goss gave way to Packard Goss, Munanaire Tembo, and Vilde Lauritzen. Totte Lindberg and Rodney Knight patrolled the back end, suffocating some of the best offenses in the NSCF last season. Three dances with Bobby Dials, three wins over the Buffalo, and once with Raynor's Odin Sørbø. Well, three starters are gone. Rodney Knight and Totte Lindberg were both taken in the first round of the RFL draft, and Packard Goss in the second.

The safety room is pretty barren - no doubt there. No one behind those two guys earned significant snaps last season, leaving the back end as a potentially fatal flaw in this vaunted defense, one that's been historically dominant in two of the past five seasons. Packard Goss though shouldn't be as big of a loss - while the 6'7" freak was a contributor and a starter two years ago, he ceded most of his reps to current incumbents Munanaire Tembo and Vilde Lauritzen - the latter of whom earned the NSCF 31 championship's player of the game with a pair of interceptions. Tembo's freak athleticism makes him the team's top corner despite his 5'11" stature while the Vanorian opposite him has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that she's one of the NSCF's best cover corners. The issue here will be depth more than anything, as Goss was often slotted in against bigger wideouts or tight ends and the team no longer has three high-end starting cornerbacks to play around with.

Overall, they've lost three of their five starters on a defensive scheme that prioritizes versatility and speed on the back end. A lack of elite coverage options eliminates much of the advantage of running a scheme which uses nickel personnel as its base look - if the Governors do struggle on defense, that will likely be the culprit. New players will have to step up and play at the level demanded by Ranoria's premier collegiate sporting program if they're to maintain the frankly ridiculous success that this team has enjoyed since Kasen Harrowitz took the helm. Fortunately, they do have that aforementioned reigning Coach of the Year to mold them into future stars and a lot of veterans of this team to instill the culture into them - we don't see this team taking too big a step back, though of course a repeat championship is always a bit ambitious. Before that, they've got to worry about making it out of the best conference in the NSCF, and one that only seems to be on the upswing despite its status.


Outlook:

We're not going to make any hard predictions. Richardson has a brutal schedule, as always, and has to get through the teeth of the NSCF in its first ten games, but we'll know what this edition of the squad is made of by the time they lock horns with the University of the Commonwealth of Baker Park yet again. The reigning Big 8 and NSCF champions certainly have a target on their back - four straight wins over the Lebois Santura University Broncos and five straight over the Cold Hill University Buffalo surely have those two squads licking their chops at the prospect of getting back at the residents of Dietrich Stadium, and young Jackson Zuercher is widely projected to make himself known as one of the future stars to watch coming into his second collegiate season.

But the expectations for this program are high. Higher even than they were under program legend Richard Steinheil. Harrowitz has compiled a 53-12 regular season record as a head coach and brough two NSCF and Big 8 championships to his team. When asked about momentum though, and the team's goals for the season, he was as predictable as ever.

"This is a new team, these guys know that. We don't get to start this year where we ended last year, we have to prove it every time we step on that field. Our goals will be the same as they always are. Win the conference, crush Loyola-Istria, make the playoffs, and if we do, stand tall on that podium when the confetti has settled."
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.

Cherco University Blacktips Coaching Staff:
Head Coach: Alex Sutherland
Offensive Coordinator: Aaron Jeharrys
Defensive Coordinator: Mehel Thomason

Colors: Orange and Light Blue

Offense: The Blacktips are a young, but relatively skilled team. Like a new-born deer, their legs are shaky and they are unsure of the world around them, but in time their confidence will grow. Jared Ricard is prone to interceptions, but also huge gains on plays. He will panic under pressure and chuck it up and hope someone will be there, overthrow an open receiver, or hit his target right on the money. It really is a matter of how things are going that day with him. He is a true pocket passer that can shrug off a tackle if necessary. David Mills does his best to make sure that won't happen, as the big man has taken to his QB like a big brother. Often telling him to keep his head and relax. The Blacktips like to throw the ball far down field to Paul Robinson, who is a fantastic WR that has no problem getting open against most average defenses. Franklin (Frankie) Walker is a huge WR who was almost a TE. His size allows him to bully most CBs, shrug off a tackle, and keep the freight train moving. All put together, the Blacktips have a very strong WR core that they lean on. James Anderson and Kalil Owens are a deadly duo that takes turns throwing haymakers at their opponents defenses. Anderson tends to take TDs in and go for long runs, while Owens tends to bully his way down the field and get those 3rd and shorts when necessary. Overall, the Blacktips offense is strong but young. They like to go for big gains and big plays, very boom or bust.

Defense: The defense for Cherco University is a bit older and more experienced. With Jacob Marchetti at DE, RBs have a hard time getting around him. He does his best at getting to the QB, but it's not his strong point. However, for Sammy Sanchez, getting to the QB is his bread and butter. He is by far the best player on the defensive line, and can hold his own against any offense that thinks they can get past him. Just behind them is Ronald Rasheed, who likes to play clean up crew for any RB that gets past Marchetti, or go off and cover a short pass. He typically wont rush the QB though. At CB, Tremaine Jackson and Kenyatta Cumby are all over it. They try to have their WRs on lockdown, with Jackson being the better of the two. Cumby likes to jump a route if he thinks he can get away with it, which works sometimes. One of the old Seniors on the team is a SS. Leroy Butler is a man who's seen it all. He's known the Blacktips when they were a terrible team, and is very excited to see them playing well. Butler is a man who's always around the ball and right where he needs to be. A true anchor. Rather than focus on big plays, the Blacktips defense is a bit more conservative, and looks to wear the opposing offense down to make a gradual stop rather than a flashy turn over.

Official Depth Chart for NSCF Season XXXI


Starters are underlined. Listed in the order of the depth chart(top player first on depth chart, second player first player off bench, etc.... )
All players are from the Busoga Islands unless otherwise specified.
Players currently redshirting are italicized.

Offense

Offensive base personnel is 21(2 running backs, 1 tight end, 2 receivers). They run a West Coast offense, and frequently involve their big tight ends in the passing game.

Quarterbacks
Kohan Ersoy. #15, Redshirt Junior. 6'4, 220 pounds. Not much is known about the redshirt junior. A 5 star recruit out of high school in Banija, he spurned an offer from Loyola-Istria and the NSCF to play at the University of Bunyoro instead. However, academic issues prevented him from seeing the field, and he has now transferred after three years. Massive, cannon of an arm, although kind of inaccurate- but can he stay on the field?
Reece Santos(Chromatika). #9, Freshman. 6'3, 210 pounds. An accurate pocket passer who excels within forty yards, Santos never did take that next step to add mobility or quickness to his game. He's a serviceable Quarterback with enough protection or a salvo of weapons behind him, but if he's not set up for success, he'll struggle at the next level. Still, there was enough brilliance in his four years at Urrhed High School to bear mention."
Ayedmir Bilgi. #7, Sophomore. 6'6, 240 pounds.



Halfbacks
Joshua Okombo(Banija). #21, Senior. Recruited from Istria, Moravica. His father played for Loyola. Captain.

Defense 3-3-5

A defense built on speed. The D-LInemen may be undersized, but they are quick and can get after people. Although the strength of the defense is surely in the secondary. Teams that love to run the ball on them will have a field day- however, the DBs on this team are most certainly capable of competing.

Torcan Gokay. #51, Sophomore.

Weak Side Outside Linebacker.

Unay Selte. #20, Freshman.
Evrim Muhiddin. #39, Freshman.

Strong Safety.
Tackin Gozubuyuk. #29, Junior.
Asal Niazi. #26, Freshman.

Free Safety.
Ebenezer Osano(Banija). #19, Redshirt Senior. Graduate Transfer from the University of Aksum in Banija.
Azat Ocal. #36, Freshman.


Special Teams.

For clarity's sake- My backup center is the long snapper for both punts and field goals. My backup quarterback is the holder for field goals. My punter does kickoffs. Lastly, my kicker is my backup punter and my punter is my backup kicker, just in case you RP an injury to one.

Kick/Punt Returner.
Azat Ocal. #36, Freshman.

Kicker.
Ayaz Yazuv. #3, Senior.

Punter.
Teker Pasa. #9. Junior.



Head Coach: Julian Aigo, a 49 year old Banijan-Busogan, is in his 1st season at the school. Aigo has a Busogan mother and Banijan father, and is a member of the Islamic Faith- a requirement to be a head coach at this school. The school has improved its own competition ever since joining the BCSG a few years prior to their NSCF years, and when the opportunity came to make the leap back to the NSCF, they used the opportunity to poach one of the hottest coordinators in Banijan college football.

Aigo has both pro and college football coordinator experience- being the OC at the University of Bunyoro for a few years before moving to the GFLB, being an OC for two years there before taking this head coaching job- his first head coaching job at any level. He generally has earned rave reviews for being an innovator, despite his old school background. He loves to get big and run the football, having massive OL that will prioritize pounding the rock. Ergo, the Caracals are going to be a time of possesion based team. They aren't going to air it out and have big comebacks, but behind a thunder & lightning pairing at HB, and being 'decent enough' at QB, they expect to be competitive in the Celestia against the Banijan big boys.

On defense, the 3-3-5 defense is highly aggressive. They will have a lot of new players on defense, as he was digging through the transfer portal, both internationally and domestically, to try and have a good enough defense to play at this level. While a lot of players are probably a bit small, they will prioritize speed and aggression- don't be afraid to make mistakes. Inevitably, this will lead to some games where they probably get boatraced- but they are going to cause havoc and create turnovers, causing headaches for even the most experienced NSCF offenses.

Offensive Coordinator & Assistant Head Coach: Okello Ojwang(Banija). 57 years old, first season at the Islamic U.

Defensive Coordinator: Zebedee Yienya(Banija), 41 years old. First season at the Islamic U.

Special Teams Coordinator: Adas Oren. 58 years old, first season at the Islamic U.

The Islamic University of Busoga. A Busogan school, like all of them, playing in the Banijan system. It is the 'flagship' university of the entirety of the Busoga Islands. So despite the islands relatively small population(8 million), they have wide support across both islands, and the nation figures to unite behind them during the NSCF- unlike, say, NMU or Loyola.

Being Busogan and Islamic, this is a university that is often looked down upon by their Banijan counterparts- and yet, here they find themselves, in the NSCF. While neither Banijan NSCF school would consider the Islamic U a rival(there is a long hisotry of this school losing to both of those), the Islamic U would consider both of them premier rivals. This is particularly true for Loyola.

The biggest tradition surrounding Caracal football is called 'the mile walk'. It's a tradition from the students, for the students- the students, behind the band, march all together from the student center to the stadium- exactly a one mile walk. They tend to arrive about 30 minutes prior to kickoff for home games, having all paraded together, watched by general fans throughout the community.

N/A


The Wolfhounds have been the country's premier domestic program ever since Richardson and Cold Hill's departure to compete exclusively in the NSCF ranks. Head coach Emil Castro - who was on the Wolfhounds' staff with Buffalo HC Chris Dale as a quarterbacks coach prior to Dale's departure - has seen an incredibly successful run domestically, with a near ninety percent winning percentage and a trio of national titles - including back-to-back crowns in the most recent two seasons.

He's one of the nation's brightest coaches, but finally, he's getting something that this program has been begging for since NSCF 16 - a crack at the international game. Castro has vocally criticized the decision to allow Cold Hill in based on their prior resume, but their success speaks for itself. He'll be squaring off against an old rival in Cold Hill and renewing one of the biggest stylistic rivalries in the country against Richardson, the only school with more national championships than themselves.

And with their junior quarterback Mason Barnett going first overall in the draft - their second consecutive passer to get taken in the top ten following Shirinna Lehmann - he made a bold move. With Viktor Rowles penciled in as the starter at Cold Hill and Paul Shepherd ready to show his stuff now, he secured a commitment from the 6'6" sophomore, who averaged over 350 yards per game in a brief stint for the Buffalo last season before suffering a wrist injury. With a similar scheme and a loaded offense - can the Wolfhounds validate their cries for a shot at the NSCF?

Stylistically, Ranoria State is the epitome of the air raid - they're going to push the ball down the field with reckless abandon, but unlike the more aggressive Chris Dale they're more apt to switch to the run game if they're up big, and at least make it a threat in their offense with backs who can generally do it all to avoid tipping off the play. Pass block, catch, or run, all of these backs can at least be passable in any role if they're getting significant snaps. Recruiting prioritizes receivers with size and athleticism to win on the outside and this offense reflects it - they won't even bring a kid in for a visit if he doesn't have a cannon for an arm to make those throws to the boundary.

The defense is largely primed to stop the pass - in their opinion, an offense can't generate enough consistency with the ground game to make up for their aggressive scoring tendencies. Defensive ends and the interior are largely going to be keying on the pass, which can occasionally put them in a bad spot, and the linebackers are coverage-first for the most part, faster guys who can keep up with your pesky tight ends. This team will allow you to run on them - but you're going to have to be very good at controlling the pace of the game in order to take advantage of it. Passing is, of course, very much on the table, they're just prepared a lot better for it.

Stadium Info
The Karmin-Falce Superdome
Ranoria City, Ranoria


Image

Capacity: 121,450

The Karmin-Falce Superdome is, unofficially, Ranoria's national stadium. With a whopping 121,450 person capacity, relatively luxurious seating and climate control, it is the crown jewel of the nation's sporting venues. A retractable dome allows for ideal conditions, be that for the fans or the home team if visitors aren't used to a harsh winter. It plays host to both the Ranoria City Silver and the Ranoria City Falcons as well as the Wolfhounds.

The surrounding city is thriving with Quebecois-influenced nightlife, restaurants claiming to serve "Banijan" food, as well as other attractions in Ranoria's largest city. Visitors should keep in mind that while marijuana and alcohol are legal, tobacco and other recreational drugs are not. Not to worry, most offenses regarding such substances will result in nothing more than a slap on the wrist. Especially for foreigners - Ranorian police have a "horrible" tendency of just not wanting to get involved with embassies.

Overall - it's worth planning a weekend getaway rather than just a trip to the big game, but either way you'll leave satisfied!

Key Starters

Quarterback: Paul Shepherd
Number: 10
Height: 6'6"
Weight: 240
Class: Sophomore

Image
Paul Shepherd, Ranoria State Wolfhounds Quarterback

The man to run the show. Reports indicate that there was some semblance of a QB battle with junior Isaac Franklin, but Shepherd was the second rated quarterback prospect in his class (behind Nick Singer) for a reason. Standing at 6'6", he's got a cannon for an arm and no fear of whipping the ball down the field, passing for over a thousand yards in just three games last season with nine scores and three picks. Perhaps most impressive was his command of the offense so early on, and with some starting reps under his belt, he's poised to light up the stat sheet in a similar scheme.


Wideout: Travin Pharms
Number: 17
Height: 6'1"
Weight: 215
Class: Junior
The returning All-Ranorian and Southern Conference Offensive Player of the Year is coming for his farewell tour. After seeing limited action as a freshman, Pharms exploded in his second season with fourteen hundred yards as the most electric talent in this receiving corps. He's got a tendency for flash, a smooth runner who makes athletic feats look effortless. Excellent combination of size, speed, and strength to beat the defense in a number of ways, and the high school quarterback passed twelve times last season.


Wideout: Michael Miller
Number: 87
Height: 6'5"
Weight: 230
Class: Senior
The counterpart to Caporaletti's explosiveness, Miller is a jump ball specialist and a nightmare for smaller corners. He's got a limited route tree, but he runs it well and is difficult to beat on a contested catch. No fear of going over the middle and taking a hit to pick up the sticks.


Left Tackle: John Mason
Number: 77
Height: 6'8"
Weight: 340 lb
Class: Sophomore
Mason somehow managed to start the six starts last season, anchoring the left side of the line during the team's championship run. He allowed just one sack in that span while bulldozing any opposition in the run game. Now twenty pounds heavier and per local news looking a bit more nimble, he's ready to make his mark as one of the pillars of this team.



Cornerback: Devin Rodriguez
Number: 23
Height: 6'
Weight: 195
Class: Sophomore

With a back-breaking interception against the University of Berlin to put his team in position to win a natty, Rodgriguez has plus speed, but his biggest strength is his change of direction and burst. He can stop on a dime and go 0-60 as fast as your favorite sports car, creating a maddening experience for the passers he's baiting.


Defensive End: Trevor Hamlet
Number: 98
Height: 6'4"
Weight: 245
Class: Senior

Hamlet played just three games last season, and has missed ten over the last two years, but he's been impactful. He notched two third down sacks in the championship game, one in the fourth quarter, and has 12.5 career sacks despite his limited playing time. Gambling that he can improve his draft stock - and wanting to help the team he loves conquer their final frontier - he's back as the passionate leader of this defense. If he can stay healthy, he's the biggest threat on this defense.



Punter: Billy Kidd
Number: 8
Height: 6'3"
Weight: 185
Class: Sophomore

The freshman sensation was the conference special teamer of the year last season - he forced two fumbles, recorded seven tackles - and of course was a stud punter. He averaged over 40 yards per punt and "coffin cornered" his opposition six times in the final four games of the season, including thrice in the national championship. Due to some confusion, he also played one snap at wide receiver, catching a pass for three yards in week one.

Insists that he and his dad wanted to him play linebacker, but his mom didn't want him to play football, so this was their compromise. Absolutely sensational hair. Drives a 25 year old truck in the middle of downtown Ranoria City and hogs the Ranoria State University Parking lot when doing repairs on it.

+ Drawkian culture requires that most students study for 5 years for an average bachelor's degree.
Previously, players were noted as "+Senior" or "super seniors" if they were in their final year.
That was confusing some people, so now it's shifted to where Seniors are in their final year, etc.
There is now a class under Freshman, noted as "Novatim". All first-year players are called this.

Style Modifier: +5


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.

Brooklyn Beck (S3:E1)

Postby Drawkland » Tue Jun 11, 2024 12:40 pm

BB Season 1E1E2E3E4E5E6E7E8E9E10E11E12E13E14E15

BB Season 2E1E2E3E4E5E6E7E8E9E10E11E12


"The DOCA Starter"

Sometimes the correct mindset is really what you need.

When Brooklyn Beck came into preseason camp her freshman year, Jimmy Chapman stood no chance. The sophomore from Drawk City was reasonably good in the pocket, distributed the ball reasonably well to his receivers, and made reasonably intelligent passing decisions. Chapman was missing any fire to his game, though. At some points it almost felt like he was going through the motions. Brooklyn was a little less accurate with the ball, but she was zipping it like her life depended on it. She would explode out of the pocket on running plays like a bullet, and she was beginning to fight back against the contact defenders were sending her way. Of course, this was camp. The contact wasn’t that hard in the first place.

Most importantly, Brooklyn had gained about 25 pounds, most of it muscle, in the year since the previous camp. She was beginning to hit all her benchmarks in the weight room, which relieved a lot of the pressure she was feeling going into the season. That was also helping her take hits easier on the field.

Even with the strides Brooklyn was making, head coach Brand Manlio was hesitant to throw her into the fire. Jimmy Chapman had waited his turn behind Anderson Fox and Isaac Hext, and he’d developed adequately. Brooklyn was getting better, but she was still raw. Not to mention that Manlio was desperate to avoid the inevitable media chaos that would happen if and when Brooklyn started a game. As camp came to a close and week one approached, Manlio called Brooklyn into his office for a quick chat.

“You wanted to see me, coach?” Brooklyn asked as she nudged the door open.

“Yes, take a seat, Brooklyn.” Manlio gestured across his desk to the open chair. Brooklyn obliged, and Manlio continued speaking. “I just wanted to make you aware of how we’re gonna handle the offense this year.”

“How so?”

“Chapman’s gonna be starting this season.” Manlio cut right to the chase. “Now, I know this may be disappointing for you. Trust me, I am really impressed with the progress you’ve made, and the play you’ve exhibited at camp this year. I do believe that you’ll be a great starting quarterback for us. Just not this year. Chapman has done his due diligence and he seems to be the dependable option for us, at least for this season.”

“I understand, coach.” Brooklyn swallowed the lump in her throat. She should’ve seen this coming, but with how confidently she’d been handling herself in camp, she felt like there was a chance she’d break through.

“Brooklyn, I promise you that you will have your shot.” Manlio leaned forward. “I wouldn’t have recruited you if I didn’t think you’d be good enough to start. It’s just not your time yet.”

“Yeah, I get it.” Brooklyn nodded. Inwardly she was still disappointed, but she kept a cool expression on her face. “Don’t worry, I’ve still got a lot more left in me.”

“I believe you.” Manlio smiled genuinely. “That’s all I needed you for. Just figured I’d tell you face to face so you’re not caught off guard when I announce the starters later this week.”

“I appreciate it, coach.”



It turned out that relying on Jimmy Chapman wasn’t a terrible decision. While his play was rather uninspiring, the team was winning. Consistency was something Sadeg State had sorely missed in the bipolar Fox/Hext era. Chapman may be more of a game manager than anything else, but he was reliable. The team and the fans knew what to expect when he trotted out onto the field. He wasn’t going to win the Skyhawks many games on his own, but he absolutely wasn’t going to lose them either.

Chapman led the Skyhawks to a 10-3 record under center, easily enough to win their conference which had no conference championship game. There was just one small problem: Chapman fractured his right elbow four days before the last game of the regular season. It was a freak occurrence, suffered in a car accident off campus. He was done for the rest of the DOCA season, and perhaps into the NSCF season depending on how well he’d handle the rehab process.

Thus, with half a week before gameday, Brooklyn was suddenly thrust into the forefront. She received the news via text message the night of the incident, from Coach Manlio himself.

“Chapman got in an accident. Broken elbow. You’re up. Emergency meeting half hour before practice tomorrow.”

That was all the message said. Brooklyn sent a quick response for clarification, but received no reply. The details would have to wait until the meeting, she supposed. She was finishing up some late semester studying and planning to head to bed soon, but as soon as she read the text she was brimming with energy. She had to tell somebody.

“Grace!” Brooklyn ran out of her bedroom, across the living room of her dorm suite, and knocked at the door of her roommate and baseball teammate, Grace Robbins. “Grace! Are you awake?”

“What, Brook?” Grace swept open the door after a few seconds. She was dressed in her pajamas and clearly had been in bed moments earlier. “What’s the matter with you?”

“Chapman is injured. He’s out.”

“Jimmy Chapman?” Grace’s jaw dropped, and she inclined her head forward in disbelief. “What the hell happened?”

“I don’t know. The message doesn’t say.” Brooklyn opened her phone back to the text from Coach Manlio, and showed it to Grace. “This is all I got. I guess I’ll find out more tomorrow.”

“You’re gonna be the starter!” Grace exclaimed. “This is your chance, Brook!”

“Yeah, it’s just …” Brooklyn sighed. “I don’t know if I’m ready yet. I was really hyped going into camp, but once I knew I wasn’t getting the starting job I kinda lost my momentum. I got used to being on the bench, y’know.”

“You’ve taken some snaps this season though,” Grace pointed out.

“Handoffs at the tail end of blowouts aren’t the same,” Brooklyn replied. “I only have like 5 pass attempts all year. Now I’m gonna have to be chucking the ball a bunch. I haven’t been in a starting rhythm since literally high school.”

“You don’t know that.” Grace shrugged. “Maybe Manlio’s got a nice run-heavy playbook you all can use. It’s not like Chapman was slinging the ball a bunch. You’ve been complaining about that fact all semester.”

“It’s not that. I’ve got a great handle on the playbook. Studying the playbook is all I’ve been able to do the last two years. The problem is that it’s the last week of the season. Rivalry week against U-Sadeg. Then we’ve got to turn around and play in the League Tournament for a shot at the playoff. This is when teams are trying to hit their stride, and instead the entire offense is going to be slowing down to try and accommodate me.”

“You mean speeding up. You’re a baller, Brook. You’ll be fine.” Grace put her hand on Brooklyn’s shoulder. “When I moved back in at the beginning of the summer you were telling me all about how Chapman might as well glue his ass to the bench this season. Where’s that confidence?”

“That confidence ran into the real world.” Brooklyn tightened her lips. “You’re right, though. This is my shot. If I don’t put together a good first impression it could be curtains for me. Gotta invite that contact head-on.”

“That’s my girl.” Grace affectionately slugged Brooklyn on the shoulder. “Now get the hell out of my room, I have a test tomorrow morning.”

“Got you.” Brooklyn turned back towards her bedroom, but paused right before Grace closed the door. “Thanks, Grace.”

“Anything for you, Brook.” Grace yawned and closed the door, but it was clear she was being sincere.



The last week of the college football season in Drawkland was reserved for rivalry games, especially ones of the non-conference geographical variety. For Sadeg State, it meant taking on their crosstown “rivals” in the University of Sadeg. This rivalry had existed for several hundred years, but it had been a wash in State’s favor ever since the Skyhawk football program rocketed up to national contender status. Being held at home in Skyhawks’ Gridiron Park, it was supposed to be an easy game for the home squad. Even with the visiting fans only having to travel across town for the game, it was likely to be an easy victory for the hosting Skyhawks.

At least it wasn’t going to be a total gauntlet for Brooklyn.

As expected, Brand Manlio mostly pulled runs from the playbook, using the experienced senior Tristan Batts as the workhorse. Brooklyn got some solid carries on the read option, but with USadeg’s porous defense, there was little need to pass the ball. Brooklyn still had a few passes, especially from play-action. She ran for one touchdown and threw for one (goalline pass to tight end Bennie MacIver) en route to a 41-17 win for Sadeg State. With that, the Skyhawks moved to 11-3 to complete their regular season.

Then began the league tournament. The top flight of DOCA features four “leagues,” which are groups of like-minded conferences. All four leagues are considered on equal footing, having existed prior to the founding of DOCA and unification of the leagues. Each league holds a tournament containing each of their conference champions and a select number of at-large teams. The champions of each league tournament go on to play in the 4-team playoff to determine Drawkland’s college football national champion.

As the best conference champion in the Drawkionel’s League, Sadeg State got a first-round bye in the tournament. Their first matchup came in the league semifinal, against Kanyo Conference champions University of Delmore. It wasn’t an easy out by any means, but Delmore were the second-softest of the conference champions in that league. The Bucks, as they were called, relied on a very good secondary and ball control offense to keep them in games. Unfortunately for Delmore, their front seven was ill-equipped to handle what Sadeg State had on the menu.

Brand Manlio and Brooklyn both knew that they couldn’t keep the same gameplan they had against USadeg. With so little tape of Brooklyn to study otherwise, Delmore was sure to know the ins and outs of the scheme deployed two weeks earlier. Even with a weaker front seven going against a great ground game, proper scheming could neutralize the disadvantage. Coach Manlio tested Brooklyn in practice by putting more passing plays in the playbook, and Brooklyn didn’t miss a beat. It would be unwise to challenge Delmore’s secondary, so most of those passes were short, quick, and over the middle.

Game time came, and Brooklyn found a way to deliver. Even though she only threw the ball a handful of times the previous week, she came out firing in her first drive of the league tournament. Five quick passes, several runs by Tristan Batts and Brooklyn herself, and Sadeg State scored first. After that point, they never looked back. The Skyhawk defense forced a few punts from the Bucks, Brooklyn managed the game efficiently under center, and Delmore fell too far behind to crawl back. Sadeg State won by a score of 31-21, and they were going on to the league championship.

Now a spot in the national championship playoff was on the line. Every fan and pundit had an opinion on the situation. Brooklyn Beck had played just as well as she needed to play her last two games, but there were serious doubts on whether she could handle a high-pressure game, or whether she could recover if she were to make a mistake. The opponent for the Drawkionel’s League Championship was Torral University - Bellator, affectionately known as TUB, another team with a great passing defense but vulnerable to the run. They also had a firecracker of a QB, who was known for having incredible performances in the passing game. The stage was set for a shootout. Could Brooklyn keep up?

Fortunately for her, the shootout never happened. TUB’s QB threw three picks in the first half, scoring only three points through two quarters. Brooklyn merely held serve, handed the ball off to Batts, and zipped a couple bullets underneath to keep the Skyhawks moving. Sadeg State was leading 28-10 by the beginning of the fourth quarter. When backup running back Scott Fierro broke for a 40-yard touchdown, it was officially garbage time. Ten minutes of game time later, Sadeg State was heading to the real playoff.

This would be the end of the road for the Skyhawks. Their first round opponent was Shawnia State, a team which hit their stride in the postseason and didn’t show signs of stopping. In the Lily Bowl, one of the two semifinal matchups for the national championship, Sadeg State couldn’t keep up. Brooklyn herself did fine, but a pair of red zone fumbles by Batts, some stalled drives at midfield, and complete defensive ineptitude by the Skyhawk defense all came together to result in a rout for Shawnia State. Not even Brooklyn’s pair of goalline rushing touchdowns could do much to prevent the final result, a 49-24 loss.

With that, Brooklyn Beck and Sadeg State as a whole went into the offseason with a heap of questions. Brooklyn had established a decent floor for herself, but what was her ceiling? Was the run-heavy, quick passing offensive scheme from Brand Manlio the most Brooklyn could manage, or was it just holding her back? Would Jimmy Chapman be back in time for the NSCF? Was that DOCA semifinal loss a disappointment or an overachievement for this edition of the Skyhawk squad, given the circumstances?

Above all, one question was asked more often than any other that spring.

Whose team is this?

+ Drawkian culture requires that most students study for 5 years for an average bachelor's degree.
Previously, players were noted as "+Senior" or "super seniors" if they were in their final year.
That was confusing some people, so now it's shifted to where Seniors are in their final year, etc.
There is now a class under Freshman, noted as "Novatim". All first-year players are called this.


My opponent, if they RP first, may do the following:
Choose my Scorers: Yes.
Choose Scoring Events: Yes.
Godmod Scoring Events: Yes.
RP Injuries to my Players: Yes.
Godmod Injuries to my Players: Non-career ending, TG is appreciated.
Godmod Other Events: Yes.
Honestly, just don't destroy my organization. Have fun making a funny or quirky game occur. I will certainly enjoy anything you throw my way.
Style Modifier: +4


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.

On offense, this team plays a pass-first style with some runs mixed in (about 60-40). The offense usually operates out of the pistol and the quarterback is allowed to make audibles as he sees fit. The running back typically runs wide on running plays and runs to the flat on passing plays. Outside wide receivers are expected to get downfield as quickly as possible, usually running vertical routes, sometimes mixing in hook routes and out routes. Slot receivers runs short routes like slants or five-yard ins. Tight ends run to the flats if they aren't blocking.

Defensively, this team likes to jam the box. Usually lining up in a 46, the team can flex a safety both into the box and up top, if the offense lines up with more wide receivers than players in the backfield.

Grand Vista University Supernovas

Grand Vista University is the first university established in the Mainframe of Delaclava. Colloquially called "Skyscraper U", the for-profit university is home to approximately 30,000 students organized into a single tower-like block of 350 stories. It is owned and operated by BT Future Inc., a venture founded by security executive Roland Desny, and Desny sought to capitalize on an opportunity that has been untapped, even scorned, by other Delaclav universities; the opportunity to play international collegiate football. The Supernovas previously competed in DUSA gridiron for four seasons, compiling an overall record of 33-23, including a record of 10-4 last season in which they scored its first top-10 victory over Van der Veil University.

The scene is a few days after NMU's final game of NSCF 30. Northern Moravica HC Lance Kabuye is conversing with his wife


Lance Kabuye was sitting on his couch, brooding. He was never somebody who took losing well- being wired that way was probably a key part of why he was so successful, for so long, at the pressure cooker that we call Northern Moravica football. And so these were rough days. The last game of the season, inexplicably, had actually gone well- they had ended the season with a solid 38-22 upset over LeBois Santura, a shocking win against a high quality Cardenao opponent. But besides that, the season was low point after low point. That win in Cardenao was just their third of the season- yes, at one point they had been as low as 2-10, before finishing 3-10 overall.

So it had been a lot of bad weeks for Lance Kabuye. Moody weeks at home. But of course, despite the on the field troubles, that wasn't even the worst thing going on in his life. At least, of course, if you were a normal person who knew how to have reasonable priorities. For Kabuye, that was the worst thing going on in his life. But for everybody around him, everybody in the know, they fully understood that football simply had to take a backseat priority. While the full extent was a closely guarded, near state secret, the aging Northern Moravica football coach was fighting cancer.

Fighting cancer is always ugly. Especially when you were in your 70s. Lung cancer was never pretty at any point in somebody's life- but especially when you were up there in years, while trying to maintain your insane, workaholic hours as a football coach. During Fall training camp, he was officially diagnosed. It was early stages, of course- stage I cancer that was caught during a routine checkup. Of course, football culture in Banija was brutal- there was no way he was going to let this outside of his circles. And, surprisingly enough, the secret was able to be maintained. For months, just him and his wife knew.

He would have to do something he had never done before as a HC- miss practice. He would start missing them on Mondays, regularly. While he hid that from the public for two weeks, that was not sustainable. He finally told his bosses (the AD and the President), and then told the press that he would miss them regularly for 'health checkups'- and that it was a great chance for his assistant coaches to develop themselves. Naturally, as the wheels began to fall off the wagon that we called the NSCF 30 season, the pressure started to ramp up. But unfortunately, his health could not afford him to not see the doctor weekly.

"My love." Lance Kabuye said to his wife. "This season. Tiring. Wearing. But to finish 3-10? I can't go out like this. I just can't.."

"Lance- this stress is simply too much." She told him. Lance Kabuye, while effectively treating the cancer, was weaker these days. Ergo, the stress of the job was starting to effect him in other ways. His heart health was getting worse, according to his doctors. Not cancer, of course- but the stress of the job, and trying to fight off the early stage cancer, was taking its toll. And yet, the time away from the gridiron, was taking away from NMU's performance on the field. Lance felt as if everything in his life was going wrong- but he was in love with the sport, possibly as much as he was in love with his wife, and he never wanted to leaev that.

He sighed as he responded. "To retire? Like this? 3-10? At least if I wanted to go out, I want to go out like a legend... Win a championship. Beat up on Loyola. At least win another Celestia title or something. But man..."

"Look, you know as well as I do- most in sport cannot get that fairytale ending. Even legends. Even living legends such as yourself." She told her husband. "John Garrett got a title in his final game with the Krauts, yeah. But what about Isaka Jawara? Ice Chineze? You can't always go out on top." She stopped, let her husband take that in, and continued. "Plus... You have your successor in the family." This was true. Hannah McKendry, the Quebecois who used to coach at USC, and the NSCF 29 Coach of the Year, had married into the family and taken the last season off to have children. She was going to wait for him, but that time might be now.

"You have to prioritize your health at some point. You have given it all to Northern Moravica." His wife said. "11 playoff appearances. Many conference championships. The school's only NSCF title- 4 appearances in the NSCF Championship game. You can retire with your head held high. And look- you want to enjoy your retirement. You don't want to spend your golden years just sick and frail and in bed like your father, do you?" Lance Kabuye's father had a painful final half-decade of his own life, and Lance had witnessed it first end. A chain smoker, he could barely walk at the end of his life. Lance never wanted to end up like that.

"You are right." Lance had a tear in his right eye. He looked up. He felt defeated. But he knew his wife was right. It was time. He called up his own boss, the AD, to set up the meeting.




Press Conference at Northern Moravica University, three days following the conversation above


The rumors had been floating about. Fortunately, the weather was beautiful on this day- 72 degrees, no clouds to speak of, no wind to speak of. So, impromptu, they moved this event outside. And in the modern day of how these things worked, it had been leaked by many that this would likely be a retirement press conference. With the event happening outdoors, on the spacious NMU Golf course, at the 8th hole. A random place? Yes. But the scenery of that part of the course simply could not be beat- even if having a press conference on the green wasn't necessarily great for the course itself.

But the beauty of it, is that there was plenty of space. And with the rumors leaking, all sorts of people were there. NMU luminaries from the past, dudes like Wagner-Young and Chae-Heung Kim. The Kabuye family was there. All sorts of donors. Every single varsity head coach at NMU, across all sports, was at the event. The entire Board of regents was there as well. And a number of fans. Despite going 3-10 this past year, Kabuye was still deeply loved by this fanbase- with the health problems, while they were frustrated with the team, they viewed it as a beautiful event.

And so, with all those there, some sweating in suits, others in kanzus, and many wearing red, he stood up, ready to speak. Wearing his red suit, with the NMU "N" embroidered on the blazer, he stood up. "Hello, everybody. Thank you all for coming out today." He took a deep breath, and looked around. "Thank you for coming to this press conference. This spirit, this is what college sports are all about. This is what Northern Moravica University is all about. The best team, the best administration, the greatest alumni base, the best fanbase across the multiverse. Nothing compares to Cougar nation." They all cheered.

A tear started to roll down his cheek. He wiped his face with his right arm, and then continued. "Many of you know that I had some health problems last year.." And with it, he began to explain, in public, exactly what was going on healthwise. The cancer diagnosis. Starting to develop heart problems. The gut wrenching pain that NMU's performances last year had given him. "Unfortunately, with my own health problems, I cannot bring back Northern Moravica football to wear we should be. So today... I am announcing my retirement, effectively immediately, as the head coach of NMU Football."

At that moment, he was given a standing ovation by those in attendance. It was an ovation that went on for about 4 minutes- there was nothing like it. "I would like to thank my beautiful wife, for being such a strong partner throughout the years..." And he went on, calling out the members of his family. He thanked the coaching staff, and the players, and so many. He talked about what NMU football meant to him- calling the opportunity to coach here 'the greatest honor of his life.' After the press conference itself there was a 5 minute montage of his greatest moments- various wins over Loyola, the 14 and done game, upset playoff wins in Ranoria and Chromatika, conference title wins- all leading to the shot of him lifting the trophy after the NSCF 19 playoff victory.

It was a wrap. Lance Kabuye was officially the former coach of Northern Moravica football. Sad boi hours? Yes. But beautiful days all the same.

Official Depth Chart for NSCF 31


Starters are underlined. Listed in the order of the depth chart.
Players currently redshirting are italicized.
All players are Banijan unless their nationality is otherwise specified.
Offensive and defensive strategies for the team listed under the coaching staff.

Quarterback
While Loyola has always had superstar QBs, last season was a very up and down one for Sebowa Jawara. All the talent in the world, a nephew of Isaka Jawara- but of course, he couldn't quite get the job done last season. Loyola struggled for many reasons, but their RS freshman QB was a big part of their struggles. He had a different approach this offseason. "I want to get better- last year, I wasn't as coachable as I should be, I wasn't as humble, I wasn't ready for the college game- and it showed." Head Coach Dennis Zervos has said Jawara has had an entirely different approach to the offseason. Suddenly a first to practice kind of guy, he has been grinding on and off the field, trying to live up to his uncle's legacy.

We'll see how well the third year sophomore will do- but expect him to start putting up the numbers again of the Loyola QBs of old.


Sebowa Jawara. #2, Redshirt Sophomore. 6'5, 224 pounds.
Irumba Kawumbi. #12, Senior. 6'3, 223 pounds.
Zesiro Ssenkaali. #9, Sophomore. 6'4, 227 pounds.

Halfback.
For a program that's never been so big on pounding the rock, they have a Chromatik #1 overall recruit leading the backfield- Cho Sang-Wook. In NSCF 29 he did a great job spelling the seniors ahead of him, and now, he'll be the focus of the rushing attack- the RB1. He was hurt a lot last season- an ankle injury causing him to miss a few games, and some bruised ribs- but now, he's healthy and ready to really be the team's bell cow. With so much returning talent on O, expect him to both get carries and be relied upon as an elite WR out of the backfield- essentially, an every down back.

Cho Sang-Wook(Chromatika). #21, Junior. 6'4, 218 pounds.
Kakyomya Mulo. #20, Sophomore.
Reuben Akech. #24, Freshman. 5'11, 187 pounds.
Kadmiel Rama. #26, Redshirt Senior. Graduate Transfer from the University of Kitara.

Tight End
Admittedly, this team isn't exactly known for high tight end usage. Now, when they've got a superstar at the position, they will- Russell Farmer basically owns all the career TE receiving records at Loyola rn, and he was a massive feature. But on a team that's loaded with a returning QB, returning HBs, and returning WRs, the tight end position is certainly going to be overlooked. Expect these dudes to mostly be blockers- both in the passing and the running game. They will be red zone targets, of course, but seldom used- probably won't have more than 30 receptions as a group across the entire season.

Idi Katamba. #84, Junior 6'3, 243 pounds.
Tobiah Okelo. #88, Redshirt Junior. First year transfer from Aksum State.
Luke Apondo. #87. Freshman.

Wide Receiver.
This team, as always, has strong WRs. Despite their struggles, they are returning their entire WR room from last season- a talented one, even though they underperformed a season ago. But with an entire season to develop chemistry with their young QB, expect them to take a big step forward. If they do, this offense can reach insane heights.
.
Arnas Rønning(Valanora). #81, Redshirt Junior. 6'2, 178 pounds. #2 overall recruit out of Valanora.
Xaya Larr(Chromatika). #1, Redshirt Junior. 5'8, 181 pounds. #3 overall recruit out of Chromatika. Outside WR in two WR sets, slot WR in 3 WR sets.
Jaxat Taa. #80, Junior. 6'5, 214 pounds.
Kuto Kuri. #89, Sophomore. 6'0, 199 pounds.
Tanu Banseh. #83, Walk-on Senior. 6'3, 194 pounds. Second year on team.
Habib Fal. #82. Sophomore. 5'10, 187 pounds.

Offensive LIne
The offense is loaded at all the skill positions- but question marks are abound on the offensive line. While they have three returning starters, they struggled mightily- a key part of Loyola's uncharacteristically poor performances last season. While there is a lot of returning talent, Dennis Zervos has called them out specifically- saying that "we need to do better on every facet of offense, and that always starts with the offensive line." With a further commitment to being tougher and running the ball a little bit more, expect quite a bit of experimentation along the O-Line. The starters to start the year won't necessarily be the five you have starting in week 6 or 7.

Left Tackle.
Ashon Nyo. #70, Senior. 6'6, 310 pounds. First year transfer from Wild Valley University. First year starter.
Dekory Ire. #76, Junior. 6'5, 301 pounds.

Left Guard.
Wanzala Kibaguzi. #69, Senior. 6'5, 296 pounds. Second Year Starter.
Wuli Aya. #64, Sophomore. 6'3, 279 pounds.
Janko Bajee. #65, Sophomore. 6'6, 298 pounds.

Center.
Kiho Nnyanzi. #50, Senior. 6'3, 303 pounds. First year starter.
Usian Shomari. #72, Freshman. 6'4, 309 pounds.
Koro Kunoe. #61, Junior. 6'1, 312 pounds.

Right Guard.
Milo Bauer(South Newlandia). #60, Senior. 6'0, 291 pounds. Second year as starter.
Daudi Beno. #62, Redshirt Senior. Grad Transfer from Tree of Life University.

Right Tackle.
Heinrik St. Joseph(Chromatika). #77, Junior. 6'8, 302 pounds. Second year starter.
Kamukama Magunda. #63, Junior. 6'4, 297 pounds. Converted from RG.
Arn Bayo. #68, Sophomore. 6'6, 288 pounds.


Play a 2-4-5 defense

Defensive Tackle.
The big, bad, Defensive tackles. With Jate now graduated and off to the pros, people will have to step up here at this position. Noah Dahle is probably the star here- the Vanorian, even if slightly undersized, has all the talent. The tackles in this defense are supposed to clog up holes and blockers, and largely let those behind them make the plays. The defense has been a mystery. They completely collapsed at the end of NSCF 29, and while the offense was the issue, they know they need to continue to improve on defense. Can this set of players figure it out?

Noah Dahle(Valanora). #99, Junior.
Nyatui Lugo. #91, Senior. 6'3, 298 pounds.
Mori Luvuuma. #90, Senior. 6'2, 299 pounds.
Omoit Ssebalu. #98, Sophomore. 6'0, 291 pounds.

Left Outside Linebacker. - This is an EDGE, pass rushing focused linebacker.
Expect a lot of rotation at this EDGE spot. Kevex has turned into a very solid, even if not spectacular, player. The senior is everything you'd expect in a Chromatik- makes up maybe for that lack of absolute top end talent with an absolutely insane work ethic, one that allows him to really dominate at LB, even if a bit undersized. That said, right behind him is Damion Battles. After putting up unreal numbers in HS (27.5 sacks in one season?!?!), he is a dude who is just physically dominant. The next in a long line of great Ranorian EDGE rushers- and another at Loyola. He is extremely religious, and while he is technically listed as the backup, expect his snap count to increase throughout the season as the coaching staff hones his raw talent into defensive production. His ceiling is Abram Fairbanks- and Zervos intends to get him there, or die trying.

Rila Kevex(Chromatika). #50, Senior. 6'5, 205 pounds. #14 overall recruit out of Chromatika. Second year starter. Captain.
Damion Battles(Ranoria). #97, Freshman. 6'3, 255 pounds.
Abasi Abdu. #97, Senior. 6'6, 288 pounds. First year transfer from Bunyoro A&M University.

Middle Linebacker
With Sandoval graduating, it is the first time in forever where the Blue Thunder don't have a ball hawking middle linebacker in the form of a Sandoval brother. So how do we fix that? Beatrice Hak will be the MLB1, while next to her, the Blue Thunder have gone out and grabbed a grad transfer from nearby Lake Wakiso State- the Busogan. Usaik is in an interesting place- a Busoga Islander, many thought he'd go home to the Islamic U, so the transfer was a stunning get. Admittedly, the MLB core is probably one of the weaker parts of this defense, but they are eager to show that they are capable of hanging with the big boys.

That said, there is a strong chance that, if Usaik doesn't work out, Derder is going to play as a freshman. A mega talented defender, he has been at the core of what Mt. Niar has done for years in Chromatika. Perfectly sized, all sorts of talent, and the work ethic to put it all together- he is going to be a star at this level for sure. But he might need a little bit of time to adjust to the college game before he explodes on the scene.


Beatrice Hak(Chromatika). #51, Junior. 6'5, 233 pounds.
Cetin Usaik(Busoga Islands). #35, Redshirt Senior. Graduate Transfer from Lake Wakiso State.
Evan Derder(Chromatika). #43, Freshman. 6'3, 230 pounds.
Ekku Ga. #49, Junior. 6'6, 244 pounds.

Right Outside Linebacker - This is an EDGE, pass rushing focused linebacker.
Kearse. Fairbanks. And... .Neuland? "I want to be among the great Ranorian EDGE rushers." She told reporters at media days. And oh, when you look at the Krauts NT, they're loaded everywhere... But that EDGE duo is unblockable. She has high ambitions. Her speed rush tactics are insane, and has great quickness as well as straightline speed. The question is- can she join them? She was probably good enough to go pro last year- but the disappointing season on the field left a sour taste in her mouth, and she wanted to come back for one more year. Can the newly minted captain, almost certainly the most talented player on this defense, and one of the most talented defenders anywhere in college football today, help lead Loyola back to the promised land?

Audrey Neuland(Ranoria). #45, Senior. 6'5, 218 pounds. #2 overall recruit out of Ranoria. Captain.
Jaja Folongko. #34, Junior. 6'5, 208 pounds.

Cornerback
We'll be blunt. Reed Rick can ball- the Chromatik CB1 can ball, and his unique combination of size and skill leave him very capable to match up against any WR in the NSCF and do battle. But behind him? Question marks might be an understatement- it is a five alarm fire. During the spring game, the other CBs for Loyola were 'repeatedly' torched by the Blue Thunder WR corps, and was cause for concern. Enough concern where they immediately went to the portal and grabbed Longcan Kakay from Zakuta State. Outside of Reed Rick, can these guys cover? Or are Loyola going to be in shootout after shootout? "It is a fair question- dudes are going to have to rise to the occasion and step up. I think our boys are capable, of course- I have always believed." If they aren't.. Well, it might be a long season for these guys.

Reed Rick(Chromatika). #5, Junior. 6'5, 209 pounds.
Longcan Kakay. #14, Redshirt Senior. 6'1, 211 pounds. Graduate Transfer from Zakuta State.

Safeties
Off to the safety spots! While the corners are a serious cause for concern, there is much more confidence in this team's safeties. Both talented players who started a year ago, they will form the backbone, the core, of this team's secondary. "The secondary for this team is in a tough spot." Said one analyst after the spring game. "But the safeties, the starters- they will do their best to ensure that the Blue Thunder have at least an average secondary. If they can help those corners, especially on the deep balls, then they can compete with anybody."

Theo Vage(Valanora). #12, Redshirt Sophomore.
Saikou Coote. #27, Redshirt Senior. 5'11, 198 pounds. Grad Transfer from Western Hangaza.

For clarity's sake- My punter is the holder for field goals, just to be clear. My punter does normal kickoffs while my kicker does onside kicks. Lastly, my kicker is my backup punter and my punter is my backup kicker, just in case you RP an injury to one.

Some things change, some stay the same. The punter, the same. Vandra Krause has been an excellent punter, growing into her own as the Nepharan experiences big time college football. The long snapper too is the same- continuity there is crucial. But other things change. Zervos dipped into the portal to grab a kicker, as Boto Ogoo he got from another Loyola campus- the man came from Loyola-Jinja. And there is going to be a new kick returner. Jjingo, who was the backup return man last year, is this year's returner. A lot of potential- and Zervos has wanted to emphasize field position in the return game, so he hopes to see more explosive returns this year.

Head Coach: Dennis Zervos, 51 years old. Fifth season at the helm. The prodigal son returns, eh? NSCF 14 champion as a QB(and Most Outstanding Player), he is well known for suffering a trio of ACL/MCL tears at the beginning of his professional playing career, that ended it before it even started. But rather than let that hold him back, he dove right back into coaching. When Loyola rejoined the NSCF at NSCF 17, he joined his alma mater as the offensive coordinator, and stayed there for 8 seasons.

After a power struggle following NSCF 25, he voluntarily left the school. He was floating for a while, before a head coaching job opened up in the RFL- to coach probably the greatest QB of our time, Sarai Gwenderyn. His innovative concepts in the RFL led them to win a league title, as he coached her for three seasons. But when Alanso Isa retired, despite him coaching in a great professional situation, the call to return to his alma mater proved too much to resist. "I love this team, I love this city, I love this school." Zervos said in his introductory press conference. "I won this competition as a QB, I won this competition twice as an Offensive Coordinator, and now, I'm on a singular minded mission to complete the turnaround that Alanso Isa started last season- bringing championship #4 to this campus."

Year 1- success. Celestia Conference champs. Year 2- built upon. Dominated two of Loyola's big 3 rivalries, going 2-0 against NMU (including a 63-7 shellacking of NMU that will not be forgotten by either school for a long while), and even going 2-0 against Richardson(including a massive playoff victory that really turned the tide in this rivalry). Won two playoff games- remember, they hadn't won a playoff game since NSCF 21 until last season. Year 3- won the Celestia, won another playoff game. But, first signs of discontent- took a shellacking from NMU, and went a combined 0-3 against their fierce non-con rivals, FSU and Richardson, including a bludgeoning by a 34 point margin delivered by their despised rivals, RU. And Year 4 was ugly. 5-8, with three consecutive beatdowns from non-con rivals to end the season.

Year 5 is turning out to be a crucial one for him. He is going to right the ship. Big coaching staff changes after the losing season, and he has said he will get them back to their title winning ways, or he will 'die trying'.

Offensive Coordinator: Elias Barnett(Ranoria). 43 years old. 1st season as OC. The last OC was somebody who has been at Loyola for a longtime, and was a teammate of Dennis Zervos from his playing days. So firing him was a sad time. "I nearly cried when I did it." Dennis Zervos told reporters. "Justice has been a lifelong friend of mine." But business is business, and that is how things go. He has hired a younger OC, one who is here to give Zervos and the offense fresh ideas, as he enters the pivotal fifth year of his contract.

He has cut his teeth in college football in Ranoria, working his way up to be a positional coach at the University of Berlin in Ranoria. Zervos, who is known for hiring coaches that he has a prior connection with, cast his net far and wide this time- and landed on the talented Ranorian. "Obviously, I coached in the RFL a few years- I am still well connected to many pro and college coaches back there." He told reporters. "Barnett's a future head guy, and this is his time to make the jump to Coordinator. With him, we are going to make sure this offense is explosive." While Zervos is going to be the playcaller, he said that the two will work together to help re-design the offense, as they strive to put some more emphasis on the run game to bring the Blue Thunder balance.

Alongside the OC hire, Zervos is essentially remaking the entire offensive staff, with the RB coach the only coach on that side of the ball being retained.

Quarterbacks Coach: Karafa Danso. 64 years old. 1st season at Loyola-Istria. Recently fired as a GFLB OC.

Offensive Line Coach: Bunama Danso. 38 years old. 1st season at Loyola-Istria. An off-field analyst for the team last season.

Defensive Coordinator & Assistant Head Coach: Camas Turley(Utahn Theocratic Republic). 48 years old.

Zervos, famously, fired his DC in the middle of the NSCF 29 postseason run, after a 49-47 first round playoff victory. The defense had become an abomination that season- and even with a high-powered offense, defenses that are consistently allowing 40+ points per game are not going to win championships. There is no ifs, ands, or buts about that. And for somebody who loves to hire from within his inner circle, Zervos reached out and found a DC that he had never met before- he had never coached with, coached against, or even lacks NSCF or Banijan CFB experience.

This is an outside hire. But this dude's got talent. He coached an elite defense at Utah State in the Utahn Theocratic Republic, and of course, is Mormon- a good cultural fit for this Mormon school. He will be given wide berth to organize and run the defense as he sees fit, as Zervos knows that he needs, at minimum, a league average defense if he wants to compete for a NSCF title. And as part of that berth, he hired an entirely new defensive staff- so big changes everywhere here. While the offense didn't exactly wow anybody last season, last season's struggles were more about the offense. And with offensive staff revamp, Zervos opted for continuity on defense. Can Turley elevate this defense into a playoff caliber defense, or maybe greater than that?

Championships: The Loyola-Istria Blue Thunder have an incredible NSCF postseason record, being 22-9 all-time in the postseason in this competition, including a ridiculous 19-9 in playoff games and 3-0 in bowl games. in 14 seasons. Those, of course, give them three NSCF Championships- NSCF 14, NSCF 17, and NSCF 21. 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, winning 14 games in a row until the title game in the Banijan capitol, 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 five Celestia conference championships, winning in NSCF 14, NSCF 20, NSCF 21, NSCF 25, and NSCF 26. Unfortunately for the team, however, they have not won a playoff game since their NSCF 21 title, meaning the team with one of the most insane postseason records of all time hasn't won a playoff game in half a decade. During that time period, 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.

The Blue Thunder have won 7 total conference titles- NSCF 14, NSCF 20, NSCF 21, NSCF 25, NSCF 26, NSCF 27, and NSCF 29.

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 went on a four year winning streak, and going into last season, had won 5 out of the last 6, as well as RU winning their first ever NSCF title in NSCF 27. But last year, Loyola-Istria swung the rivalry in stunning fashion- a regular season win in Banija over the Governors, and then, in the second round of the playoffs, traveling to Ranoria and beating RU at their own stadium. But just as it looked like they had regained control of this rivalry, a 50-16 smackdown delivered by Richardson reset the order of things, followed up last season by a three score victory by RU in Banija. With another losing streak in this rivalry, it is the priority game for Loyola- they look to get a win in Ranoria and re-establish themselves as the dominant team in this rivalry.

They also have a very competitive rivalry with Felswyr State University. The Chromatik school is generally 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 3-6 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 Blue Thunder have finally found their footing, winning three of 4- including a big-time win in week 12 two years ago against the Firehawks. Loyola won in Chromatika last year in the regular season, but got pasted in the playoffs- as it's clear that FSU has overtaken Loyola as the best football program in this competition. Unfortunately for the Blue Thunder, they lost twice again to the Firehawks last year, and now are on a 4 game losing streak, having been shut out by FSU last season. While the rivalry is on a one year hiatus, this is a 'priority' game for Loyola in hte long-term.

Lastly, the team has a brand new rivalry with Bingham Young University. The two Mormon schools in the NSCF- BYU v. Loyola-Istria. BYU, of course, is a first year entry to the NSCF, and Loyola-Istria jumped on the ability to have a matchup, as the Patriarch of Herzegovina has already stated that 'he wishes for inter-Mormon relations to tighten between the two nations'. The rivalry, wdubbed as 'The Holy War', was played last season, and BYU won 14-10.

Vierne Professional Institute Earthmothers

Vierne Professional Institute was founded two years ago in the Mainframe of Delaclava by Guillaume Vierne, a wealthy retired insurance and luxury real estate executive. Distraught and lonely following the death of his wife Andrine, Guillaume devoted himself to a new venture: a cutting-edge institution on the very forefront of Delaclav culture preparing the nation's youth for the practical knowledge and skills of today. With no prior intercollegiate experience, the Earthmothers, representing a school of about 2,000, will be thrown straight into the fire but will try to get by on talent and youthful moxie.

Home Venue: Patrick Vierne Memorial Grounds (85,000). Patrick is the only son of Guillaume and Andrine, who died at the age of 14 in a hot air balloon accident.

NSCF Is Here: BSU TIME!!!! Also Alexandria University For Some Reason!


Ah yes, fall. A time of year in Cardenao marked by glistening sandy beaches, gigantic potholes in once paved roadways, and tropical folk doing tropical folk things…a time like any other in the year. Except for one difference, one tiny…little…difference……

IT'S FUCKING NSCF SEASON BOYOS LETS GO! MAN I am so jacked up to be writing about college football again, it's the best sport, it's the best competition, it's purity, it's life, it's fckn college football bahbee!

Once again LeBois Santura will take the field in their blue and orange while, for the first time and somewhat confusingly, Alexandria University will be contesting for the first time (though of course their entire team transferred in from New Cardonia State). We all know what NSCF is about, so let's jump into reviewing the players charging out this upcoming season!

LeBois Santura University Broncos



Quarterbacks:
Brett Hannah: Sophomore, 6’6 213lbs-Strong Arm
Michael Monrovia (Brøgby Preparatory Academy/CAD): Freshman, 6’2, 206lbs-Scrambler
Thomas Romeijnsen (Academia Cardonia/CAD): Freshman, 6’1, 198lbs-Dart Thrower

Goodbye Bobby Dials! The former NSCF Player of the Year has headed to the Cardenao Football League and just like that, the Broncos best position has arguably become one of their worst. Sophomore Brett Hannah is the likely starter and he is a much different style of quarterback compared to his predecessor so there’s going to be some growing pains this season. Brett Hannah is a more traditional rocket armed type of QB compared to Bobby Dial’s scrambling, play extending feet and ability to hit the open option while doing so. This means we should be seeing more medium and deep-shot pass attempts to take advantage of Brett Hannah’s strong arm. Sorry BSU fans, but BH is the oldest QB on the roster as a sophomore; he’s got two freshmen backing him up. Newcomer Michael Monrovia is one of the more exciting quarterback prospects in recent years thanks to his incredible athleticism and ability to run for the position, while fellow Cardenao High School League product Thomas Romeijnsen is a real dart thrower. He might not have the biggest arm or the fastest legs but he can really put the ball on a rope and fire home precise throws over shorter distances that have zero margin for error and he’ll nail them. There’s some real variety in the LeBois QB room…too bad they can only start one.

Running Backs:
Reno Thai: Junior, 5’9 207lbs-Elusive Back
Alejandro Garrina: Senior, 6’1 213lbs-Power Back
Cortney Allen (Riverstone International School/CAD): Freshman, 5’10, 194lbs-Receiving Back
Malik Carter: Junior, 5’10 199lbs-Receiving Back
Zaro Rodriguez: Sophomore, 5’8 200lbs-Elusive Back
Colt Fulton: Junior, 6’ 204lbs-Receiving Back

Reno Thai had a productive, if not exactly impressive freshman season for the Broncos and will be expected to really bang on this year with a season’s experience under his belt. With the departure of Bobby Dials as a surefire option in the passing game, you’d have to think Reno will see a lot more action as an important part of the offensive gameplan. Alejandro Garrina will likely see plenty of time as the senior brings a sort of battering ram approach compared to Reno Thai’s more explosive agility. Inbound freshman Cortney Allen will also see snaps as the team’s best pure receiving back, the Riverstone International School product arrives with college ready route running and hands from the backfield. Malik Carter had a sophomore campaign to forget about after showing some flashes as a freshmen, but rumor is he’s been putting in a lot of work in during the off-season to progress beyond solely being a receiving option to prove he can handle the ball as a runner too. Zaro Rodriguez is a short but slipper runner who showed plenty of potential as a freshman, unfortunately the state of the running back room doesn’t leave him a whole lot of opportunity at the start of the season, but if he performs well who knows what could happen. Colt Fulton was recovering from his ACL tear but did feature in the latter half of the season, popping up with several short yet impactful cameos. His role is a little undefined as this will be the first time we’ve seen him back at full health in nearly a season and a half, so it’s up to him to write his fate.

Tight Ends:
Erik Skarsgård (TKT): Sophomore, 6’6 255lbs-Possession
Vittorio Bermuda: Freshman, 6’5, 260lbs-Vertical Threat
Jonathan Duckworth: Senior, 6’2 255lbs-Blocking

With senior Nejc Graciano headed to the draft, there is quite the opportunity for one of the Broncos tight ends to really step up and seize the position for their own. Erik Skarsgård is likely to begin the season as the starter thanks to his size, capable catching ability, and understanding of Coach Steve Valentine’s gameplan, but incoming freshman Vittorio Bermuda is the most promising Cardenoan tight end prospect in at least a decade. He’s an explosive route runner with the hands of a receiver while his huge 260lbs frame is perfect for blocking on the line, so Bermuda will ultimately end up a versatile starter for the Broncos. Jonathan Duckworth is perhaps the best blocker of the bunch but is so one-dimensional in his overall skill set that the senior will likely only see the field in specific scenarios.

Wide Receivers:
Saivion Ware: Junior, 5’11, 189lbs-Slot ----Returner
Gigi Dudley: Junior, 6’2, 198lbs-Playmaker
Jamichael Perkins: Sophomore, 6’4, 211lbs-X Receiver
Demario Southward (Ranoria City Cathedral High School/RAN) : Freshman, 6’4, 215lbs-X Receiver
Tywin Shabeux: Senior, 5’10 181lbs-Slot
Justice Harmon (Riverstone International School/CAD): Freshman, 6’2, 171lbs-Z Receiver

With Bobby Dials departure, so too has his favorite target, Antonio Reddick, who is headed to the CFL. That clears the path for junior Saivion Ware to be the wide receiver one, and he’s ready to build on an incredible season with 1435 yards and 15 touchdowns. It’ll be interesting to see the type of season he has with the change of quarterback for the Broncos, Brett Hannah has a bigger arm than Bobby but he’s nowhere near the complete thrower that his predecessor was. Sophomore Jamichael Perkins stands ready to start as the X receiver for LeBois, sure he saw limited snaps as a freshman but he’s 6’4 211 pounds and he’s got a QB with a rocket arm so it’s time to see if JP can be the tall, big, deep-ball style receiver the Broncos need. He’ll have to preform well because incoming Ranorian freshman Demario Southward is bound to be a solid player for the Broncos during his collegiate career. Senior slot Tywin Shabeux will find snaps hard to come by with the skill in the receiving room, it’s interesting that his sophomore season is almost certainly going to end up as his most productive one. Finally, at the end of the bench it’s Justice Harmon, the freshman from Riverstone International School is very quick and agile with solid 6’2 height and good football IQ means Justice could be an impactful Z receiver by his upperclassmen years.

Guards:
Marwin Finlayson (QUE): Sophomore, 6’8 312lbs-Power
Joel Azpita (J.C. Evermore Academy/CAD): Freshman, 6’8, 340lbs-Pass Protector
Francis 'Big Frank' Shrubsman (OCH): Sophomore, 6’6, 319lbs-Run blocker
Erik Byrd: Sophomore, 6’4 290lbs-Agile Protector

For the first time, LeBois Santura University is fielding an offensive line full of quality. Sophomore guard Marwin Finlayson of Quebec is without a doubt one of the finest at his position in college football and easily earned Big-8 First-Team honors as a true freshman and will be eager to repeat the accomplishment. Lining up alongside him is incoming freshman Joel Azpita from J.C. Evermore Academy. Everything about Joel is larger than life, his size at 6’8 340lbs is insane for a freshman, but that does bring some concerns about his overall agility and potential for injury. I would almost argue he should spend the year as a back-up option so he can add functional strength as opposed to mass and maybe lose a little bit of weight to help him play as long as possible. The first alternate option for the Broncos will be the Ochren, sophomore guard Big Frank Shrubsman. He’s big, he’s round, he keeps his chest clean and his feet moving to push the line forward, Francis is everything you want from a run blocker. Finally, fellow sophomore Erik Boyd is quick and his feet and knows how to keep his quarterback or his running back up on their feet.

Tackles:
Gabe Hunter: Junior, 6’5, 295lbs-Agile
Devonta Clellen: Senior, 21, 6’3, 309lbs-Power
Iker Bravo: Junior, 6’2, 298lbs-Power
Jass Reuhnmatkers (Treasure Valley Triceratops/CAD): Freshman, 6’6, 289lbs, Agile

More size and power for LeBois’ offensive line as the tackle room is not wanting for big boys. Leading off is Gabe Hunter, the 6’5 junior is far more quick footed than one would expect with his near 300lbs frame, but that’s what makes him so capable in the pass protecting game. Devonta Clellen brings a little more strength to the position and just loves to smash on the line, doesn’t matter if it’s running, doesn’t matter if it’s passing, Devonta doesn’t care, he just likes smashing defenders. Iker Bravo is an absolute technician when it comes to his approach to playing the line, he has great hands, long arms, he knows how to keep the defense away and how to adapt to what they throw at him. Finally there’s the newcomer to the team, freshman Jass Reuhnmatkers from the Treasure Valley Triceratops brings an even bigger profile to the position with a strongly built 6’6 frame. The former high-school wrestling champion is super light on his feet and displays great technique, really the sky's the limit for the kid and I wouldn’t be surprised to see him snag a starting position during his underclassmen years.

Centers:
Rejhan Tatum: Senior, 6’4, 314lbs-Pass Protector
Bairo Oyañder (Brøgby Preparatory Academy/CAD): Freshman, 6’3, 322lbs-Agile Protector
Carlos Rodriguez: Senior, 6’2, 289lbs-Pass Protector

Bronco fans can rest easy knowing Rejhan Tatum is returning to start at center for the third season in a row now. He’s a big powerful lad, 6’4 and 314lbs with all the knowhow on keeping the quarterback on two feet while organizing the rest of the line. Freshman Bairo Oyañder from the Brøgby Preparatory Academy is likely to be the second-string center and will certainly take over the position upon Rejhan’s graduation. Carlos Rodriguez enters his final year in the same role as always, a dependable ‘break glass if emergency’ style option. Let’s hope it doesn’t come to that!

Main Formation: 4-3 defense
Tackle
Jair Judge (RAN): Sophomore, 6’8 280lbs-Power Rusher
Elias Olden (VAL): Sophomore, 6’ 220lbs-Speed Rusher
Mwayi Seo-Joon: Senior, 6’3, 287lbs-Speed Rusher
Travis Whitaker: Junior, 6’3, 320lbs-Power Rusher

The arrival of a pair of international freshmen to the tackle position last season played a huge role in bringing the Broncos to the College Football Semifinal. Ranorian Jair Judge is an absolute beast, 6’8 and 280lbs ain’t nothing to sneeze at and the big man knows how to smash through offensive lines. Elias Olden, the Vanorian, lines up with him and brings a totally different approach to the position; this sort of one-two punch is what made the Broncos defenseline so lethal last season. While JJ will absolutely smash you with his brute strength, Elias is an absolutely explosive athlete who uses his speed and powerful technique to burst through his opponent to get hands on the quarterback. Mway Seo-Joon is spectacular but he suffers from the presence of the two foreign tackles. He’s got great hands and knows how to use them, and pairs that with an explosive first step that allows him to really get into position and get his hands set much faster than his offensive counterpart. It’s unfortunate he’s in his senior year right as Jair and Elias are truly taking over. Junior Travis Whitaker is the heftiest fella at the defensive tackle position and is by far the strongest option at the position, at 6’3 320 pounds he is built to smash through the offensive line to absolutely fuck up whoever is unfortunate to have the ball.

Defensive Ends
Mack King: Sophomore, 6’1, 278lbs-Speed Rusher
Montrazel Brown: Senior, 6’5, 289lbs-Power Rusher
Priest Hunter (Timberline High School): Freshman, 6’4, 269lbs-Power Rusher
Isiah Mitchell: Junior, 6’2, 293lbs-Power Rusher

Who else would be leading the end position for the Broncos other than sophomore Mack King, the then freshman finished the season with 43 combined tackles, nine sacks, 3rd in the DPOY and unanimous selection to the Big 8 team of the season as he showcased incredible speed to blow past every type of offensive linemen put in front of him. He’s an absolute monster with incredible speed for his 6’1 278lbs build, and he pairs nicely with Montrazel Brown and perhaps perfectly with newcomer Priest Hunter. Lining up as the first alternate option is the freshman from Timberline High School, it’s Priest Hunter. The lad has an incredible physical profile, already 6’5 and nearly 270lbs with plenty of room to grow, he and Mack King are primed to make up for the departure of Alabaster Red to the Cardenao professional league. The senior Montrazel Brown is a brutal, teeth breaking tackler who specializes in both bruising whoever’s in front of him and smashing the ball free.

Middle Linebacker
Zane Anderson: Senior, 6’2, 240lbs-Run Stopper
Laura Davis (SNL): Sophomore-Pass Coverage
Cristian Salisu: Junior, 6’1, 227lbs-Speed Rusher

Zane Anderson has smashed his way into the starting middle linebacker position during his final year of eligibility, he’s an absolute destructive force who smashes the shit out of running attempts. Laura Davis has found herself in the position of potentially slipping to the second-string position despite a promising freshman season, her pass coverage ability may have become less important in a fresh defensive scheme drawn up by new hire, Ranorian Kai Hillis. Cristian Slisu will be the last man off the bench, but that doesn’t make him any less important with his incredible speed and athleticism, but he is always reacting to the play, rarely anticipating it and that’s a fair bit disappointing from a junior…but maybe he’ll put it together this season!

Outer Linebacker
Zaire Montclaire: 19, 6’4: 228lbs-Sophomore, Pass Coverage
Caleb Roberts (Tooele High School/UTA): Freshman, 6’2, 220lbs-Run Stopper
Juan Williams (Eastern Tip/NEW): Freshman, “Outstanding Size”-Power Rusher

Alabaster Red……IS NO MORE! The outside linebacker who dominated defenses for two years is now playing the professional game and it falls on the new guard to pick up the slack. Fortunately for the Broncos, they have a room full of underclassmen. Likely starter will be Zaire Montclaire, he’s a fantastic pass disrupter and that’s something Kai Hillis seems to want from the outside backs. Two new freshmen back Zaire up, the first is Utahan Caleb Roberts, the lad is a tackling machine and a relentless pursuit of the ball carrier. He’s got that football IQ and instinctive play that earned him the reputation as one of the best in his country and the Broncos are thrilled to have him. The final option for LeBois is Juan Williams, the freshman out of South Newlandia who pairs outstanding size with fantastic technique that projects him to be an elite quarterback rusher.

Cornerbacks:
Mateo Marino: Senior, 6’3, 207lbs-Hybrid
Nate Hart: Senior, 5’10, 199lbs-Pass Coverage
Rogerio Ludovico: Sophomore, 6’, 213lbs-Hybrid
Daniel Koo (Baja Calania/QUE): Freshman-6’2--198
Conrad Siolla (SHM): Sophomore, 6’1, 200lbs-Hybrid

Another year, another starting season for Mateo Marino, who has quietly become an elite defensive player for the Broncos. Standing perfectly at 6’3 and 207 pounds, Mateo has a fantastic blend of size and speed that allows him to dominate in both the pass and rush game; the senior is an absolute killer who is poised to have the breakout season his attributes have made inevitable. Also he has awesome celebrations! Lining up next to him will be fellow senior back Nate Hart, the 5’10 track star is fast, fast, and fast as hell, along with being a surprisingly powerful tackler despite his shorter height. Sophomore Rogerio Ludovico is a bowling ball with his 6’ 213lbs build devoted exclusively to smashing the shit out of whoever he’s targeting, it can be a receiver or a running back or a quarterback, don’t matter to Rogerio! He’s gonna bring the boom. Newcomer Daniel Koo of Quebec has raised plenty of eyebrows with his 4.4 40 time, strong footwork, and innate knowledge of coverage schemes meaning he’ll certainly see some, albeit limited, play time as a freshman. Another option for the Broncos is sophomore Conrad Siolla from Schima Bas, the second year player is a heat-seeking missile for stopping plays behind the line of scrimmage…but it was a rare occasion when he correctly anticipated an offensive play call.

Safeties:
Heinrik Dessler (CMT): Sophomore, 6’4, 210lbs-Pass Coverage
Mayo Rodriguez: Senior, 6’, 192lbs-Pass Coverage
Cheeto Masarati (Brøgby Preparatory Academy/CAD): Freshman, 6’5, 225lbs–All-Arounder

Sophomore Heinrik Dessler will retain his starting position after a solid, if not quite spectacular, freshman season that saw him learn how to pair his height, length, and ball-hawk instincts to the college game. Another season starting should be a treat for Bronco fans, and they’ve got Mayo Rodriguez right behind him to patrol the deep field. The 6’ senior has a great sense of anticipation and a great brain, it doesn’t take him long to get a read on opponents plays and how they attack coverage. Newcomer Cheeto Maserati from the famed Brøgby Preparatory Academy brings an insane amount of size to the position, at 6’5 and 225 pounds, the kid has a professional league ready body but definitely needs the time in college to learn the mental aspects of the game. He’ll get plenty of action as a true freshman.


Alexandria University Swordsmen



Quarterbacks:
Nick Singer (RAN): Sophomore, 6’6 215lbs-Pocket Passer
Trent Delarian: Sophomore, 6’3, 232lbs-Field General
Rudy Garcia (Alexandria High School/CAD): Freshman, 6’1, 197lbs-Scrambler

As the highest rated recruit to come to Cardenao during the 29th recruitment window, there was a lot of expectation thrust on Nick Singer’s shoulders and it’s fair to say he delivered. As a freshman, the 6’6 multisport athlete put up some respectable numbers and formed an immediate partnership with receiver Deacon St. John. Singer can throw it deep, he can throw it accurately, he stands talls under pressure, he’s legit. Backing him up will likely be fellow sophomore Trent Delarian, who will potentially have to wait until his senior year to even sniff the starting position, but he can definitely fill in if need be. Trent’s a calm and composed passer who can hit all three levels of the field, but his biggest strength is his ability to diagnose the defense and organize his offense accordingly. Finally, there’s the inbound freshman Rudy Garcia, the local kid from Alexandria High School. While he’s not much of a ‘quarterback’, the kid is definitely an athlete and a major threat when he scrambles out of the pocket and starts running with the ball. Unfortunately, serving as a glorified running back isn’t the ideal way to approach the quarterback position, so Rudy Garcia will need some time to learn the craft.


Running Backs:
Javaire Caron: Senior, 20, 5’10, 206lbs-Power Back
Mario LePlus: Sophomore, 6’1, 192lbs–Elusive Back
Zachary Perez (NGS): Sophomore–Power Back
Xanderrick Woolley (Elmo High School/UTA): Freshman, 5’11, 236lbs–Power back
Nick Hollowell (Escuela Nacíonal DCPF/CAD): Freshman, 5’10, 180lbs–Elusive back

The departure of Mason Steele to the Cardenao Football League means there’s a fight in the running back room to become the starter. Senior Javair Caron seems likely to earn the position as a rocket powered bowling ball, but there are some lingering concerns over an ACL injury in his sophomore student, and it’s not exactly like he’s got the highest ceiling as a player but someone needs to wrack up the yards. Mario LePlus will likely be the #2, the sophomore is a slippery and elusive runner who is a constant home run threat. Zachary Perez of New Gesem will sit on the bench but see a fair amount of snaps, useful for a player who ran for over a 1000 yards as a sophomore, junior, and senior in high school…so what the hell why not give him the ball when need be? It’s a pair of incoming freshmen to fill out the room, first it’s Xanderrick Woolley, the Utahn from Elmo High School is already a monster at 236lbs at 5’11 in height. He’s a classic, clear power back who will destroy anyone ahead of him, but he might need to slim down a little bit just to keep his body healthy. Nick Hollowell from the famous Escuela Nacíonal DCPF is the final name on the list, he’s a shifty sort of back who really explodes out of his cuts but will need some time in the weight room to get his body cut just right.

Tight ends:
Qamiya Parrine (CMT): Sophomore, 6’7, 245lbs-Vertical Threat
Jón Úlfursson (Endor High School/KYP): Freshman, 6’7, 284lbs–All-Around Threat
Irv Koyack: Junior, 6’4, 269lbs-Possession

Qamiya Parrine had a solid season as a freshman, earning a position on the Big-8 First Team thanks to his incredible route running and more will be expected this season. 6’7 is insane, the stop-start agility Qamiya has for someone his size is ridiculous, and his ability to work routes and send defenders to the hotdog stand is remarkable. The second option will be the new freshman from The Kytler Peninsulae, Jón Úlfursson from Endor High School. Another 6’7 target for the line but, unlike Qamiya, Jón is built like an absolute tank with a 284 pound frame; the kid has a natural sense for catching the ball but lacks refinement on that front meaning he’ll likely see snaps as the flanker-a block-first pass option who will see a lot more time as he develops his skills. Finally, there’s the junior Irv Koyack. Big Irv is an absolute monster on the offensive line, sure he can kinda catch the ball…sometimes, but his true value lies in being an additional blocker who loves putting in the work to keep Nick Singer on two feet.

Wide Receiver:
Deacon St. John, Sophomore, 6’3, 204lbs-Playmaker
John Hughes: Senior, 5’10, 185lbs-Deep Threat --Returner
Kario Memphis: Senior, 6’7, 224lbs-Physical
Pule Tuigamela (UTA): Sophomore, 6’3 214lbs-Playmaker
Dillon Periman: Sophomore, 6’2, 228lbs-Physical
Riccardo Alessandro (Obyedako High Blue Devils/CAD): 5’10, 173lbs-Deep Threat

Headlining the newly formed Alexandria University wide receiver room is, of course, Deacon St. John. He has the build, the hands, the route running, he has the it factor and, a season removed from a unanimous selection to the Big-8 first team as a true freshman……the sky is the limit and that’s become his expectation. Every team needs a burner: a short but faster than a jackrabbit receiver who gets out there and pushes the field and Alexandria University has exactly that in John Hughes. The 5’10 senior is FAST, clocking in a 4.28 40 and he’s got a pretty decent, though not great, route tree beyond his world class speed. So that’s a helluva one-two punch for Alexandria, you’ve got an elite playmaker in Deacon St. John and a touchdown threat in John Hughes…how could it get worse? Enter 6’7 Kario Memphis. He is tall, he has good hands, he does not have good speed, he has elite height (which is a pretty helpful skill to have), but despite all of those skills, he doesn’t have that quality to make things happen for himself and that’s a damn shame. He has most of the things you want in your receiver but Kario has the type of skill level that means he’ll be linked to the quality of his quarterback…fortunately Nick Singer looks to be that guy. Next off the bench is sophomore Pule Tuigamela from the Utahn Theocratic Republic, he’s got a good body, decent hands, passable speed, and was a solid relief option in limited snaps as a freshman. Right behind him is fellow sophomore Dillon Periman, this guy has a pro-ready build but fails to excel in any particular area, he’s more a jack-of-all-trades player with plenty of time to improve. The final receiving option for Alexandria is the newcomer Riccardo Alessandro, he’s short and slight of frame but he’s fast, he’s agile, and he can catch a football, what more do you need from your end of bench option?


Guards:
Tayvion Jenkins: Senior, 6’6 326lbs-Pass Protector
Victor Leyva: Senior, 6’, 300lbs-Power
Harold Teller (Myana Northwestern High School/CMT): Freshman, 6’3, 280lbs–Agile
Christina Paol (SHM): Sophomore, 6’3, 230lbs-Agile

The big boy Tayvion Jenkins arrives at Alexandria University in his senior year and he is ready to do business. 6’6 and 326 pounds of functional strength, Tayvion can really do it all with his size, power, and agility making him a specialist at keeping Nick Singer standing up. OL icon Cortez Del Rio is headed to the Big Boy League and senior Victor Leyva shoots to the starting position. He’s 6’ so way on the shorter end of the spectrum for the guard position, but he has a ton of power and knows how to explode up into a defensive lineman or an edge rusher to put them on their back. That being said, there’s definitely room for Harold Teller of Chromatika to steal the starting position, the 1-time high school champion and #24 recruit out of his home country is a well rounded left guard who has quick, active feet. He’s got the hands and the feet to work in both pass and run protection schemes, so his versatility will be key for a new look Broncos offense. Christina Paol of Schima Bas had her chances as a freshmen and displayed solid speed and surprising strength, but the fact of the matter was as a 230 pound offensive linemen…you’re going to get fucked up and that’s more or less what the tape showed.

Tackles:
Tanielu Tupua (UTA): Sophomore, 6’7 313lbs-Power
Ronald Morris: Senior, 6’5, 300lbs-Pass Protector
Tucker Bayfield: Senior, 6’4, 329lbs-Power
Marcos Aoás Corrêa (Mokuleia Island High/CAD): Freshman, 6’5, 298lbs-Agile

As a true freshman for New Cardonia State, Tanielu Tupua of Utah was an absolute monster and he looks set to take it to another level this season for Alexandria University. Sure it’s his first year at Alexandria but he’s already earned a role as an offensive captain thanks to his light-hearted, joking nature that he pairs with a controlled aggression in the weight room and on the field to grind the most out of his teammates. The Swordsmen will be thrilled to snag senior Ronald Morris, the former Thunderhawk has been a starter since his freshman year. The 6’5 300 pound beast is a tried and true presence who provides a reliable pass protection option as he anchors and bats away pressure. Senior Tucker Bayfield becomes the first name off the bench after Mark Markson heading to the Cardenao Football League. At 6’4 and nearly 330 pounds of pure strength, TB is big, he’s hard, he’s a wrecking ball on the line. Finally there’s freshmen Marcos Aoás Corrêa from Mokuleia Island High, the 6’5 beast is quick on his feet and very agile, something that should translate well to both pass protection and run blocking.


Centers:
Segun Spriggs: Senior, 6’2, 310lbs-Pass Protector
Romeo Davis: Junior, 6’3, 300lbs-Agile
Sean Ventura (Skyview Mountain Academy/CAD): Freshman, 6’2, 298lbs-Pass Protector

After three seasons as a backup option, Segun Spriggs finally gets the center position to himself in his senior season. The 22 year old has plenty of size at 6’2 and 310 pounds while still having quick feet and active hands making him a great protection piece for Nick Singer. For two seasons Romeo Davis was the only underclassmen at this position, now though he enters his junior year fully ready to backup Segun Spriggs. At 6’3 and 300lbs, Romeo has plenty of mass and strength but a background in gymnastics means he’s flexible as hell, he’s got great footwork and balance, it’s basically impossible to get him down and out of the way. Finally there’s the freshman Sean Ventura from Skyview Mountain Academy in Cardenao. The 6’2 newcomer is just under 300 pounds and he’s a very stout, very powerful blocker who can move his legs decently enough to keep the pocket intact for his quarterback.

Main Formation: 4-3 defense
Tackles:
Carlos Mukuamo: Junior, 6’4, 302lbs-Speed Rusher
Theo Mon’Sinclair: Sophomore, 6’5, 312lbs-Run Stopper
Junior Washington (Escuela Nacíonal DCPF/CAD): Freshman, 6’6, 291lbs-Speed Rusher
Jeremy Jones (Academia Cardonia/CAD): Freshman, 6’3, 309lbs-Power Rusher

The defensive tackle room for Alexandria University is a young and mostly inexperienced one. The sole upperclassmen Carlos Mukuamo starts as a solid speed rusher–6’4, 302 pounds, I’d hate to have him charging at me! Due to a lack of upperclassmen talent, sophomore Theo Mon’Sinclair slots in as the other defensive tackle for the Swordsmen. Hailing from the island of Juacuacanos, the 6’5 312 pound lad is big as hell and knows how to identify gaps in the offensive line for him to smash through to shut down the run game. Freshman Junior Washington from Escuela Nacíonal DCPF will be coming off the bench for his first year. Junior is ‘slightly built’ at ‘only’ 291 pounds on his 6’6 frame, and this build gives him a speed and agility boost compared to the typical tackle, allowing him to blitz right through the offensive line to sack the quarterback. At only 6’3 but weighing in at almost 309 pounds, it’s clear Jeremy Jones is here to be a wrecking ball. The freshman from Academia Cardonia is built to crush and dang does he love crushing his opponents.

Defensive Ends:
Caden Larrazabal: Junior, 6’3, 295lbs-Run Stopper
Garran Cluff (UTA): Sophomore, 6’6 267lbs-Speed Rusher
Trinton Axpe: Senior, 6’2, 317lbs-Power Rusher
Velus Howard: Senior, 6’2, 284lbs-Speed Rusher

This is a strong room for Alexandria University, the Swordsmen have a good blend of senior experience and an exciting sophomore, though a lack of freshmen talent could become an issue here in a season or two. The first name on the sheet is by far Caden Larrazabal, the 6’3 junior is powerfully built with a 295 pound frame that he uses to thrash the offensive line with quickness, agility, and an unquenchable desire to demolish the O-line makes him a killer. Sophomore Garran Cluff of Utah has earned the right to start, initially it was a shaky freshman campaign but some productive time in the gym and making the most of his limited snaps has made it clear: the kid needs to start. He’s tall, he’s fast as shit, he has a killer row to get past his mark, and he excels at slapping down pass attempts thanks to his long arms. Behind the Junior and a Sophomore are a pair of Seniors, the first being Trinton Axpe. He lovvvves running through and around the offensive line with reckless abandon, his 6’2 317lbs build is just ridiculous, he’s so thick yet powerful yet quick on his feet……BUT he might just have too much build for his bones, the senior has spend over half of each season in the injury room. Finally, there’s Velus Howard. At 6’2, he’s the same height as Trinton but Velus is a much different build at 284 pounds and plenty of agility and speed to work around his opponent.

Middle Linebackers:
Núñez Ribeiro: Senior, 6’4, 253lbs-Field General
Rashad Nijman: Junior, 6’3, 244lbs-Run Stopper
Rudi Larkin: Sophomore, 6’2, 239lbs-Pass Coverage

Last season, Núñez Ribeiro blew into the limelight last season for New Cardonia State as he dominated the middle of the gridiron. Núñez has a sweet blend of speed, size, overall athleticism, and an ELITE ability to recognize plays and shut down the offense. Junior Rashad Nijman of Vaareda has become one of the better smash mouth run stopping linebackers, a ton of strength, a ton of tackling, a ton of knowing exactly how to bring his prey to the ground. Sophomore Rudi Larkin didn’t have a freshman season to remember but that’s alright, he got bigger, he got stronger, he’s a solid pass coverage option with game-ready length and vertical ability. Not a lot of quality here for Alexandria University, not a lot of depth, so this could become a problem position for the Swordsmen.

Outer Linebackers:
Valerio Zarragoza: Sophomore, 6’2, 219lbs-Speed Rusher
Orlando Jreerwood (Glenelg Academy/CAD): Freshman, 6’1, 202lbs-Pass Coverage
Trevardo Chung (St. Bonaventura/CAD): Freshman: 6’2, 230-Run Stopper
Kristian Edvardsen (Magnus Academy/VAL): Freshman, 6’, 176lbs–Speed Rusher

Unfortunately for Alexandria University, the outer linebacker room is entirely full of underclassmen. Valerio Zarragoza has won the #1 outer linebacker position, though that might say more about the overall quality at the position rather than Valerio’s singular talent. He’s got bags of pace and tons of functional strength, he’s a real athlete who loves ripping down the seam to blow a play up. Orlando Jreerwood brings speed, a strong ability to communicate with his defensive unit, and some surprisingly solid hands that might make him an interception threat in later years. After Orlando it’s another freshmen for Alexandria University, this time 6’2 musclepacked Trevardo Chung from St. Bonaventura High School in Cardenao. Trevardo is a powerful athlete with bags of strength, he loves ripping into the hole to smash the ball carrier, usually for a loss. Finally there’s fellow freshmen Kristian Edvardsen brings a slight but speedy frame to the position, the Vanorian from the Magnus Academy. Not a lot of power, not a lot of meat to his build so he’ll spend the majority of his freshman season hitting the weight room to add functional strength to his frame.

Cornerbacks:
Andreas Sparrelind (TKT): Senior, 6’1, 200lbs-Pass Coverage
Theodore Usania (CMT): Sophomore, 6’5, 240lbs-Hybrid
Mac Maghnuis: Junior, 5’11, 197lbs-Pass Coverage
Teijeh Nieddu: Senior, 6’2, 207lbs-Hybrid
Haritz Arteria: Sophomore, 6’1, 203lbs-Run Support

Andreas Sparrelind, the senior from Tikariot, returns as the first name in the cornerback room. Blessed with solid speed, a strong build, and good anticipation of the game, Sparrelind is everything you want in a cornerback. Beyond him is Theodor Usania of Chromatika, at 6’5 he has incredible size for the position and that alone means he can contest any ball thrown his way, but his real strength comes as a run support asset. Junior Mac Maghnuis is quick, aggressive, and plays on pure instinct. He’s a real livewire out there and sometimes that goes great, sometimes less so when he lets his instinctual play go too far. Senior Teijeh Nieddu is an interesting case. He has all the physical tools in the world to succeed but he’s never been able to put it together on a consistent snap by snap basis…despite that, he has a fantastic nose for interceptions, perhaps being the best in all of Alexandria University’s backfield. Very frustrating for fans. Finally, there’s the sophomore Haritz Arteria. 6’1, 203lbs, and a crazy 6’9 wingspan, the kid has everything you could want in a cornerback prospect. He’s got all the tools and he seems to have a good sense of the mental aspect of defense, so Swordsmen fans have a lot to look forward to here.

Safeties:
Jerome Peavey: Junior, 6’2, 215lbs-Zone
Jay Reed: Senior, 6’1 193lbs-Hybrid
Dani Gonzalez, Senior, 5’11, 189lbs-Zone
Phrez Marenial: Sophomore, 6’, 198lbs-Hybrid

Alexandria University returns all of New Cardonia State’s safeties in a move that will be sure to bolster the Swordsman's defense unit. Jerome Peavy is a hard hitting safety with a knack for punching the ball free. At 6’2 with a good vertical, he’s also more than capable as a pass defender. Jay Reed is a junior speed demon who’s comfortable covering the run and pass while Dani Gonzalez is a pure pass coverage option who can cover all sorts of receivers, but the senior’s injury proneness has made him an unreliable option. Sophomore Phrez Marenial is an interesting prospect for his upper class years, he’s got solid speed and incredible jumping but his hands are…not great and he’s got some concentration problems, so a season on the bench and in the film room might do him some good.

Jackson Zuercher Pt 8.


Jackson looked at the ceiling of the house in Edmunton. He was in the guest bed, but honestly, it was fine. Being woken up by Blake every morning at 5 a.m. these past couple weeks was miserable, but he got some good tips from his brother. Along with being helped by his brother and the QB coach for the Edmunton Eagles, Although it was more extensive than his college training, Jackson felt as if he was improving on his techniques at a quicker rate.

Jackson finally got back to Provo just for BYU’s fall camp, meeting up with his best man and main target Johnny W. Smiling as he dapped up his tight-end, bringing him in for a hug as they haven’t talked much in person since Jackson had been in Edmunton. “Yo Johnny! How ya been man? Its been ages dude we gotta catch up during camp.” Jackson smiled, as the words fell out of his mouth talking to Johnny. There chats were cut short before, couch yelled for them to take a knee.

After some short introductions to the new player, mainly the Cardenao Tight-ends coming in and trying to get the starting job. As Jackson heard that, his head turned to Johnny before a smirk crept up on his face. On the other hand Johnny gave Jackson a dismissing look, with a slight smile on his face before the both of them focused on coaches talk. After the talk and laying out the say’s work out, the hard part started with Jackson walking into the practice field.

Once Jackson got limber and stretched out, he started on his sprints getting ready before his lifting. It was a little different than his work-outs with Blake but to be a QB was being able to adapt, no matter if it was on the field or off it and that’s something he is learning slowly but surely he was learning. As Jackson lifted the bar up, he heaved pushing the weight up and down, feeling his arms burn and exhaust as he moved the heavy weight.

Although it wasn’t as much as Johnny could, life and throw around it was still a good amount of weight. After finishing up, his set the starter decided to check up on Johnny. Seeing the Tight-end chumming it up with, the Cardenao freshmen and noticing one that stood almost as tall as Johnny. Jackson tried to remember his name before a lightbulb hit above his head, Wally Hendrix that’s his name pretty interesting one honestly. But hey BYU has had its fair share of interesting names, Jackson again shrugged at the thought before walking up the the TE’s.

“Ayy Johnny, how’s your work out goin buddy?” Jackson said, walking up to the taller guy.

“Jackson! Honestly been hype man, got some fresh blood in the weight room. Just know these guys are gunning for starter, well honestly anyone is but gotta love competition.” Johnny gave Jackson a slap on the back, before Wally spoke up.

“Yeah competition, lovely thing but if you are a blocking TE I got ya on lock with the over 80 inch wingspan!” Wally laughed to himself, and was soon joined by Johnny and Jackson.

“Alright guys, I will let you enjoy your workouts.” Jackson spoke as he dapped up Johnny before heading out, walking back to his own work out and talking with the arm coach. Finally as Jackson finished up his last rep, he stood up sighing before walking to the locker room and resting for 10. Before getting up and throwing on his gear and getting out to the field, it was a sunny day and honestly Jackson was hyped to get the season rolling and show BSU up.
