Sports Forum / Lincoln's Espinoza Named FCS Bowl Most Valuable Player
« on: December 13, 2018, 09:20:52 AM »
by Lions Sports Information Department

Lincoln University senior quarterback Vincent Espinoza threw for two touchdowns and ran for two more and earned Most Valuable Player honors in Sunday's FCS bowl played in Daytona Beach, Florida, leading his American team to a 38-37 come-from-behind win.
 
Espinoza nearly single-handedly led the American Team back from a 14-point deficit with 3:20 remaining in the game, using both his arm and his legs to produce two touchdowns.  He threw four completions for 75 yards including a 14-yard touchdown toss to pull the American team within seven 37-30 and after his squad recovered an on-side kick with 1:14 left, Espinoza engineered the final drive, finishing it with a 14-yard run for a touchdown as time expired.  He then completed a game-winning two-point conversion pass to Prince Gray (Jacksonville) for the win.
 
The senior quarterback finished the game with 132 yards passing and two touchdowns thrown plus another 92 yards rushing and two additional touchdowns.  Espinoza did not throw an interception, nor was he sacked.  His 132 yards passing and 92 yards rushing were game highs.
 
Espinoza's MVP award marks the second consecutive year a Lions' football player has earned MVP honors in the FCS Bowl game.  Running back Ramses Owens took home the MVP plaque following the 2017 game.
 
In another all-star bowl game, Lincoln senior Rob Catchings participated in the Aztec Bowl in Mexico City, Mexico last Saturday.  Joining Catchings was Assistant Coach Samuel London who served as one of the Assistant coaches for the American Team.

Woow Bowie. What happened? Amir Hall still put up video game-like numbers (428 passing yards, 3 TDs) but cannot do it alone. Sharks smell blood in the water in the CIAA now.

LANGSTON  - Two pivotal plays in the second half turned the tide for the No. 14 Langston Lions on Saturday afternoon as they remained unbeaten in Sooner Athletic Conference play by defeating Wayland Baptist 31-20.

Leading 20-17 with 17 ticks remaining in the third, senior quarterback Jaylen Lowe (SR/Collinsville, Okla.) capped a seven-play, 70-yard drive with an eight-yard touchdown run. The Lions tacked on the two-point conversion and lead 25-20 after three quarters of play.

Lowe sealed the game for Langston late in the fourth quarter with a 42-yard touchdown lob into the hands of Joe Lewis (JR/Houston, Texas) to increase the Lions' advantage to 31-20 at the 2:27 mark in the fourth. The Pioneers were unable to muster any type of comeback, turning the ball over on down the following possession at the Wayland Baptist 43-yard line.

Collectively, the Lions amassed 434 yards of total offense with 319 coming through the air. Lowe finished 25-of-37 with 319 passing yards and two touchdowns while tacking on 32 rushing yards and two touchdowns.

Isaiah Shaputis (JR/Guthrie, Okla.) finished the day with nine receptions for 130 yards and one touchdown; Shaputis becomes the first Lion to eclipse the 100-yard receiving mark this season. Joe Lewis finished with three catches for 57 yards and one score.

Langston (3-1, 3-0 SAC) plays at Texas Wesleyan next Saturday. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.

Sports Forum / Allen opens football rebirth with big win
« on: September 02, 2018, 09:28:42 PM »
ALLEN 47, COLUMBUS STATE 3

Allen University, playing its first college football game since 2005, ended that long drought in style Saturday, routing a club team from Columbus (Ga.) State before several hundred fans at Irmo High School’s W.C. Hawkins Stadium.

Defensive back Johntavius Hill broke open a close game in the second quarter with an interception and 80-yard touchdown return, breaking a tackle and then sprinting down the right sideline to score. That gave the Yellow Jackets a 17-0 lead, and they added another touchdown by Charleston back Jermaine Alston before halftime.

First-year coach Teddy Keaton’s team scored first when De’Juan Sease, a defensive end from Bamberg, blocked a Columbus State punt attempt that the Cougars covered in their end zone for a safety. The Yellow Jackets then drove 52 yards on the ensuing kickoff, scoring on Adrian Ladson’s 1-yard run and converting a bobbled PAT attempt for two points and a 10-0 lead.

The Yellow Jackets defense turned two CSU miscues into second-half scores. Linebacker Anthony Menchaca scooped up a fumble and ran 30 yards for a touchdown, and defensive back Ricky Carter picked off a James Whitman pass and returned it 25 yards down the left sideline.

Sports Forum / Allen University Football is back!
« on: August 16, 2018, 12:48:18 PM »
http://www.auyellowjackets.com/article/139.php

The return of Football at Allen University has arrived back on campus.

Columbia, SC-The Allen University Yellow Jackets opened fall football practice with a spirited two-hour workout. Head coach Teddy Keeton said the players and the coaching staff were excited to hit the field for the first time.

"The first day is always exciting," Keeton said. "It's a good time to get out here and see exactly where we are condition-wise."

The Yellow Jackets had about 50 players participating in the first practice, with several more on the sidelines waiting to be cleared. One of the first things the coaching staff wanted to determine is what type of shape the players are in with the season right around the corner.

"We're not where I was hoping we'd be, but we're not bad," Keeton said. "I like where we are. We've just got to continue to work."

"The biggest thing on the first day is to see where you are and the energy is real high right now and we're hoping to maintain that. We've got a lot of young guys mostly freshman on this team and the biggest thing we have to do is teach and get them shape."

Allen will play all their home games at W.C. Hawkins Stadium at Irmo High School. The season opener will be September 1 against Columbus State at 3pm.
