Rose-Hulman rolls Ravens

ANDERSON, Ind. — One record was broken, one was nearly broken and the Anderson University football team started off on a 14-0 roll Saturday afternoon. But the momentum stalled as Rose-Hulman’s hurry-up offense took its toll on the Ravens during a 42-14 defeat at Macholtz Stadium.

Johnel Wortham totaled 125 yards of rushing against the Engineers, with one of those rushes spanning 69 yards for a touchdown.  He broke through a gaping hole on the left side of the offensive line and ran away from the defense to give the home team a 7-0 lead.

“Our running back, he’s a special player.  He gives great effort, and our guys block for him,” said Ravens coach Bobby Ladner.  “I hope, my vision is that they work very good together later down the road.”

On Anderson’s next score, Brady Cavinee hit Zack Moe on a 3-yard strike with less than a minute left in the first quarter to put his team up 14-0.

Little did the team or coaching staff realize that would be their last score of the game.  Rose-Hulman rattled off the next 42 points in the lopsided victory that was closer than the scoreboard would indicate.

There are always positives and negatives in every win and loss, and that was no different for Ladner and his staff Saturday.

He still doesn’t feel like his team has played four quarters of football, but the positive from Saturday is that Tyler Ganus broke the school record for career tackles.  The previous record of 350 was broken as the senior defensive back finished with 17 tackles on the day.

“It’s been nothing but positive.  That kid has worked hard.  He’s come out to practice every day, and I couldn’t be more proud of our seniors and our senior group because of all the things they’ve had to endure their four years here,” said Ladner of Ganus and the senior leadership.  “They’ve stuck with it, they’ve never quit, they continue to practice hard and Ganus is a very special person.  He deserves that, he works hard and I couldn’t be happier for him.  I’m very proud of him.”

Linebacker Nate Moser gave a solid performance as well with 24 tackles, which was one shy of the school record for tackles in a single game.

“He does that every week.  He runs to the ball, and he does a good job,” Ladner said.

The Ravens coach sees the slow but steady improvement in his team, but he wants to see a complete game as a group.

“I told them that we played well in the first half, and if we could ever learn to put four quarters together as a team we’re going to be pretty good,” said Ladner.  “That’s growing pains.  We’re still young, and our guys have to learn to play with the lead.  Once we learn to play with the lead, I think you’re going to see this thing start to change. We’ve got talent and we’re doing the right things. We’ve just got to put it all together."

Cavinee finished 15-of-40 for 132 yards and a touchdown. Sammy Faulkner and Keivan Stewart had 19 and 15 tackles, respectively.

  • SPT - HB0731 - Colts Camp - Fleener - 206 Colts focusing on situational improvement One year ago, the focus in Indianapolis Colts training camp was on turnovers. The team had committed far too many in 2012 and was determined not to repeat its mistakes. The theme at Anderson University carried over to the field, and the Colts' 14 turnovers were the fewest in the NFL last year.
