49TH ANNUAL MWB OFFICIAL PROGRAM SATURDAY, DEC. 6, 2014 • TIGER STADIUM • IN EXCELSIOR SPRINGS, MISSOURI 49TH ANNUAL TIGER STADIUM EXCELSIOR SPRINGS SATURDAY DECEMBER 6, 2014 There’s a difference between watching the NFL games aired on television and watching two college teams from out of state go head to head for their last games of the season. Die-hard college football fans and players alike understand it – the drive, determination and the reminder that for a lot of the seniors playing for their respective team, they may never step foot on the turf again. The gridiron of Tiger Stadium at Excelsior Springs High School invites this year’s 49th annual Mineral Water Bowl teams to finish out their season in what will be their final match up of the season. This year’s teams, the University of Sioux Falls Cougars will face off against the University of Central Oklahoma Bronchos. USF Finished 10-1 for the season and third overall in the NSIC, this is their first appearance at the Mineral Water Bowl game. Also making their first trip to Tiger Stadium for the MWB will be the opposing talent from the University of Central Oklahoma Bronchos who finished their regular season play 8-3 and finished third in the MIAA. Although both teams are experiencing several firsts, a first trip to Excelsior Springs, a first playoff game in the Mineral Water Bowl and the first opportunity to be welcomed by the Excelsior Springs Community – the QB Club’s Mineral Water Bowl Committee has the art of inviting out of state guests, showering them with comfort and welcoming the teams, players, coaches, cheerleaders and coaching staff to Excelsior Springs down to a science. Since 1948 the MWB Committee has strived to make the three-day stay in the community a comfortable one for all involved. The details are worked on year round to be sure both teams are taken care of down to the last detail. A non-profit organization, the QB Club will take their hard work and turn any profit from the event back into the community to help provide funding for youth sports, arts and academic programs. This year’s 49th annual Mineral Water Bowl at Excelsior Springs High School Tiger Stadium is set to kickoff at noon on Saturday, Dec. 6. The MWB looks forward to meeting the teams’ players, coaches and fans who make this year’s event possible.

For the MIAA the University of Central Oklahoma Bronchos come in with a 8-3 record and 3rd in the division. Representing the NSIC is the 10-1 Sioux Falls Cougars who are third in the division. UCO is under the direction of head coach Nick Bobeck in his third year at the helm of the Bronchos. Coach Jed Stugart, in his fifth year, leads the USF Cougars. When comparing the two teams’ starters, head-to-head, UCO brings freshmen quarterback Chas Stallard, who was named Freshman of the Year in the MIAA. Stallard’s regular season campaign saw him complete 183 of 277 passes for 1,877 yards and 8 TD’s with a mere 5 interceptions while adding 662 yards and 9 TD’s rushing. Sioux Falls’ quarterback, sophomore Luke Papilion, earned the title of NSIC Offensive Player of the Year after a 2014 breakout season. For the Cougars, Papilion has aided USF offense to an average 42.7 points per game as he accounted for 29 TD’s this season, he racked up 481.4 yards per game completing 208 of 328 passes for 2,555 total yards. Stallard’s target, running back Jake Gandara, has rushed for 1,077 yards and 13 TD’s this season on 178 carries while also catching 33 UCO USF passes for 226 yards. For the Sioux Falls Cougars, second team AllNSIC running back Nephi Garcia ranks as one of the school’s all-time running backs. Garcia ranked fifth in the league in rushing with 100.7 yards per game, has 2,176 rushing yards in his career and 27 TD’s. On the defense fans can expect UCO’s lineman Kenny Allen, second team All-MIAA for the second year in a row, to collect his fair share of tackles. This season Allen recorded 36 tackles with only 9.5 tackles for loss. He leads the league with 7.5 sacks in the regular season. All-NSIC defensive back John Tidwell, the league’s top cover corner, finished with 53 tackles, including 39 solo stops. Tidwell saw two interceptions, fumble recovery, forced fumble and 13 pass breakups tying him for second in the league. In all this year’s MWB fans at Tiger Stadium can expect a fierce game of competition between two outstanding teams with high marks for both offensive and defensive players. Both teams, making their first-ever MWB appearance, are chomping at the bit to take home the final win of the season, guaranteeing a game for fans to remember. score by quarters 1 2 3 4 45 96 65 94 118 138 93 OT 22 T 372 0 470 121 usf SCORING OFFENSE SCORING DEFENSE FIRST DOWNS RUSHING YDAGE PASSING YDAGE RUSHING DEFENSE PASSING DEFENSE TOTAL OFFENSE TOTAL DEFENSE SACK (TOT YARDS) PENALTIES/YDS GM 3-DOWN CONVERSIONS 4-DOWN CONVERSIONS TOUCHDOWNS TIME OF POSS./GAME GIVEAWAY/TAKEAWAY 3 470/42.7 199/18.1 269 2349/213.5 2946/267.8 1641/149.2 2222/202 5295/481.4 3863/351.2 25/159 74/65 81/188 9/16 62 30:19 19/37 uco 378/29.3 236/393.1 211 2086/189.6 2073/188.5 2239/203.5 2085/189.5 4159/378.1 4324/393.1 17/126 62/53.6 70/161 1/4 41 30:11 20/16 THE HISTORY OF When the first Mineral Water Bowl game was played on Thanksgiving Day 1948, it was presented by the Excelsior Springs Quarterback Club to raise money to assist area youth activities. That’s still the reason the game is held today. Excelsior Springs High defeated Mexico, Missouri, High in the inaugural game then travelled to Chattanooga the following week to face a junior college team in the Orchid Bowl. Predictably the high school Tigers couldn’t compete with the junior college squad and predictably too, that kind of competition didn’t last long. In 1951, after four prep versions of the Bowl, the State High School Athletic Association banned unsanctioned post-season high school play. Encouraged by the success of the high school games, the Quarterback Club began exploring ways of resuming the bowl. It did in the fall of 1954 when the Mineral Water Bowl returned as a small college game. It kicked off a span of 22 years when the bowl became a midwest institution that attracted great teams and some future stars to Excelsior Springs. The Mineral Water Bowl was one of only 11 in the nation sanctioned by the NCAA in 1957, in the same company with the Sugar, Rose, Cotton and Orange Bowls. Each fall in the ‘50s and ‘60s, the bowl was home to the championship caliber teams from Michigan to Colorado to Texas and North Dakota. By the mid-’70s, another era had dawned. The television networks were airing more and more football and it became harder to draw crowds when the living room was such a good ticket to the big games. After the 1975 game the Mineral Water Bowl was cancelled and there was little interest in its return. In 1992, 4 a reorganized Quarterback Club received National Junior College Athletic Association sanctioning for the Bowl. The first three Junior College games were decided by only two points and the fourth was a two point game too, until Middle Georgia scored the winning touchdown with only 11 seconds left. In 1996, Blinn College (led by former UCM coach, Willie Fritz) made history by winning their unprecedented second consecutive NJCAA championship and in 1999 Blinn won the final junior college championship with a victory over Fort Scott. In 2000, a new partnership with the MIAA, the NSIC and the NCAA began and the Division II teams played the first overtime game in Bowl history. It took three overtimes for Winona State to upset Missouri Western and gain the NSIC’s first win. Augustana’s 37-16 victory over Missouri Western snapped a 7 game MIAA win streak. The Quarterback Club proudly presents the 47h annual Mineral Water Bowl. We gratefully thank the outstanding citizens, merchants and sponsors whose loyal support of area youth activities, even in difficult economic times, make this game possible.

From its modest origin as a six-team alliance nearly eight decades ago, the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference has matured into a 16-team union of upper Midwest colleges and universities to form arguably the strongest affiliation in NCAA Division II. The NSIC can trace its roots to 1932 when six schools, including Bemidji State University, Minnesota State University, Mankato, Minnesota State University Moorhead, St. Cloud State University, University of Minnesota Duluth and Winona State University signed on as charter members. All remain active subscribers of the league today. Southwest Minnesota State University was added in 1969, followed by Northern State University in 1978, Wayne State College (NE) in 1998, Concordia University-St. Paul and the University of Minnesota, Crookston in 1999, the University of Mary and Upper Iowa University in 2006, Augustana College in 2008 and Minot State University and the University of Sioux Falls in 2012. Minnesota State, St. Cloud State and Minnesota Duluth later left the league to join the North Central Conference but returned to the NSIC in 2008. University of Minnesota, Morris and Michigan Tech University were once part of the NSIC family as well. In 1992 the NSIC became a true athletic showcase for both men and women with the merger of the traditional Northern Intercollegiate Conference (NIC) and the Northern Sun Conference (NSC), the home of women’s athletics since 1979. Before NSIC affiliates became certified for championship competition in the National Collegiate Athletic Association in 1995, its member institutions filled prominent roles in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA). NIC and NSC clubs annually dispatched qualified student-athletes to national tournaments and captured several NAIA teams and individual championships.

The Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association, a 14-member conference (beginning in 2012-13) of NCAA Division II institutions in Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Nebraska, was first organized in 1912 as the Missouri Intercollegiate Athletic Association. The conference was first organized in 1912 with 14 member institutions. Of those original members, the University of Central Missouri, Truman State University, and Northwest Missouri State University still remain a part of the MIAA. Over the past 100 years, the MIAA has gained the reputation of being one of the top NCAA Division II conferences in the nation. LCS 1706 Johnson Industrial Dr. Excelsior Springs, MO 64024 MIAA student-athletes have won 15 NCAA team championships and, since 1964, more than 160 individual national titles. The MIAA currently conducts championships in eight sports for men and nine for women. For the men, champions are crowned in football, cross country, basketball, indoor and outdoor track & field, baseball, tennis and golf. The women compete for titles in volleyball, cross country, soccer, basketball, indoor and outdoor track & field, softball, golf and tennis. Dr. Bob Boerigter became the newest commissioner of the MIAA in September of 2010. Boerigter was formerly Athletic Director at Northwest Missouri State University.

A lifelong learner, Dr. Benedetto has four degrees in higher education and is a licensed, ordained Baptist minister. Before USF, he served in various roles at six universities in Ohio, Texas, New Mexico and California. Student enrollment has more than doubled during Dr. Benedetto’s tenure. This includes an impressive stretch from 19972008 when USF experienced eight consecutive years of record enrollment. In 2008, USF’s total enrollment of 1,674 was the largest enrollment in the history of the institution. Full-time faculty kept pace with the enrollment increase, and the number of professors doubled during this time. Dr. Benedetto and his wife, Gail, have been married 37 years. They have two adult children, Amy and Mark Jr., and five grandchildren. At the University of Sioux Falls, students earn more than a degree. They gain an experience that transforms their lives. While they list the Christian community, dynamic professors and premier career opportunities as top benefits, it’s who they become that alumni value most. Founded in 1883, the University of Sioux Falls is a Christian, liberal arts university affiliated with the American Baptist Churches, U.S.A. USF is inclusive of all denominations with dozens represented on campus. Our mission is to foster academic excellence and the development of mature Christian persons for service to God and humankind in the world. Our motto is Culture for Service. We strive to nurture our students’ relationships with God and to build their characters. We offer more than 80 undergraduate programs and the following graduate and adult-learning programs that are offered on campus or online: Accelerated Nursing, Degree Completion Program, Education Specialist, Master of Business Administration, Master of Education and RN-to-BSN. Our intentional learning environment, led by a faculty dedicated to developing “the whole person” and to integrating faith into the curriculum, provides students with opportunities to learn both inside and outside of the classroom. Through transformative courses and offerings like our Honors Program, interim-service trips, study-abroad semesters and Undergraduate Research Conference, our students discover their career calling. That’s why 97 percent of 10 our graduates find satisfying employment in their fields of interest within six months of graduation. Because we are located in the top-ranked city of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, our students enjoy the amenities of a big city with the atmosphere of a friendly and safe Midwest town. Sioux Falls is consistently recognized nationally in such publications as Forbes, Wall Street Review and POLICOM for maintaining one of the healthiest environments in the nation in which to live, work and raise a family. Sioux Falls is also advantageous when students look to gain experiential learning experiences through part-time employment, job shadows, internships and volunteer opportunities. Yet some students do not leave campus often. This is because USF offers more than 100 clubs, organizations and activities to join. Campus growth has been paramount since 1997 when President Mark Benedetto, the University’s longestserving president, assumed office. With the addition of new programs, the increase in enrollment and the expansion of USF’s physical footprint, including the addition of USF’s South Campus, approximately 100 acres that is home to the USF Sports Complex, more than $50 million has been invested in new and renovated facilities. It’s the people, though, who remain the cornerstone of the University. The individuals who fill our residence halls, classrooms and offices support a distinct kind of unity that makes our community unique. That’s why we proclaim to students that the University of Sioux Falls is a place…Where You Become, Who You Become. Jed Stugart University of Sioux Falls Heach Coach (2010-present) John Tidwell on a punt return Jed Stugart is in his fifth season as head football coach for the University of Sioux Falls. Stugart, who was introduced as USF’s 20th head coach on February 20, 2010, has led the Cougars to a 10-1 record in 2014 with a team ranked #16 (as high as #10) in the AFCA Poll. A Greeley, Colo., native with Midwest ties, Stugart has maintained the pride and tradition of USF football while steering the Cougars through the challenging transition from NAIA to NCAA Division II athletics. During his tenure, USF is in its fifth straight winning season. USF’s run of consecutive winning seasons is 21 straight, Stugart owns a 43-13 record (.768) at USF and a career mark of 69-20 (.775). The #10 ranking is the best by USF in its DII era (since 2011). In DII, the Cougars are 29-12. The Cougars continued their winning ways in 2013, posting an overall mark of 6-5 and notching their second-straight win over its city rival Augustana College. USF was rewarded for another successful campaign, as two Cougars were named to the AllNSIC South First Team and a total of nine players received all-conference recognition. One Cougar took home an individual award, as junior John Batinich was named the NSIC Defensive Newcomer of the Year, while senior Carrington Hanna became the first player in the history of the NSIC (records dating to 1973) to be selected as both an all-conference wide receiver and all-conference quarterback in the same year. In addition, John Tidwell was named to the 2013 Don Hansen Football Committee AllSuper Region 3 Team. A total of 13 Cougars received All-NSIC recognition and the 2012 USF football team received a total of 25 postseason honors from a variety of collegiate and media outlets. The national recognition wasn’t limited to the players, as Stugart was one of five D-II finalists for the 2012 Liberty Mutual Coach of the Year Award. Stugart and his wife, Angie, have one son, Gunner, and one daughter, Gracie. D a r i -rBi v e - I n D H A Family Tradition Since 1954 Collision Repair WhERE YOU GET MORE ThAN A FAIR ShAKE!

One of the league’s most dangerous dual threats, Papilion had a breakout season in 2014 as he accounted for 29 TDs and directed a USF offense that averaged 42.7 points per game (3rd in the NSIC; 10th, DII) and racked up 481.4 yards per game (21st in DII), twice going over 600 yards in total offense. Papilion completed 208-of-328 passes for 2,555 yards and 23 TDs with 10 interceptions. He completed 63.4 percent of his passes while also rushing 143 times for 719 yards and six TDs. In addition, the sophomore quarterback ranked fifth in the league and 31st nationally in total offense (297.6 yards per game) and sixth in passing (232.3 yards per game). Papilion has a run of eight straight games of 200 yards passing or more and also rushed for over 100 yards three times. He is the only QB in the league with 300 yards passing and 100 yards rushing in the same game (Moorhead). Second team All-NSIC running back Nephi Garcia ranks as one of the school’s all-time great running backs. He is one of four players in school history with back-to-back 1,000 yard rushing campaigns. Garcia, who ranked fifth in the league in rushing with 100.7 yards per game (209-1,108 yards, 17 TDs) has 2,176 rushing yards in his career and 27 TDs. The senior running back, who had five 100-yard games this season and 12 so far in his career, also ranked fourth in the NSIC in all-purpose yards with 1,402 yards while sitting third in scoring with 114 points. Garcia capped his career as a Cougar with a careerbest 225 yards and three TDs. Second team All-NSIC wide receiver Josh Angulo had 54 catches for 749 yards and a team-high nine TDs, and was a dangerous weapon all season for the Cougars. Angulo averaged 13.9 yards per catch and 68.1 yards per game. He had six games with five catches or more and recorded a season best nine receptions for 120 yards in a win over Moorhead. H-back Brady Rose led the team in receptions with 58 for 707 yards and six TDs. He averaged 64.3 yards per game. Operating out of the Hback spot, Rose was a tough cover for most defenses. DEFENSE First-team all-NSIC cornerback Solomon St. Pierre had a remarkable season at cornerback, accumulating an NSIC and nation-best 10 interceptions for 214 return yards and two defensive TDs. Plus the Wagner, S.D., native had 23 passes defended, which was also the best in the NSIC and ranked second in the nation. St. Pierre, who had 54 tackles, is tied for 10th on USF’s career interception chart with 13. Going back to his high school days, he has 35 total interceptions (set a SD HS mark with 22). Two-time NSIC defensive back John Tidwell is arguably the league’s top cover corner. Plus, the Aurora, Colo., native can return both punts and kicks. In 2014, Tidwell finished with 53 tackles, including 39 solo stops. He had two interceptions, fumble recovery, forced fumble and 13 pass breakups, which tied Tidwell for second in the league.

Nick Bobeck University of Central Oklahoma Coach ( 2012-Present) It hasn’t taken Nick Bobeck long to get a storied Central Oklahoma program back on track. Bobeck is in his third year at the helm and has led the Bronchos to an 8-3 record this season with a third-place finish in the rugged Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association after the team was predicted to come in 10th in the 12-team league by conference coaches. Bobeck, who became UCO’s 13th head coach on Jan. 4, 2012 following a sparkling four-year head coaching stint at junior college powerhouse Navarro (Texas) College, has a 12-19 record with the Bronchos. Nick, who played at UCO and then was a graduate assistant coach for the Bronchos, compiled a sensational 42-5 record at Navarro. The Bulldogs won the 2010 national championship along with three regular season Southwest Junior College Football Conference (SWJCFC) titles during his tenure there. Bobeck was a four-year letterman and two-year starter at fullback for UCO from 1999-02, earning first-team All-Lone Star Conference North Division honors as a senior. He stayed on with the Bronchos as a graduate assistant coach the next three seasons, helping UCO go 20-12 during that stint while making the NCAA Division II playoffs in 2003. Bobeck went to Texas A&M as an offensive line coach in 2006 when the Aggies finished 9-4 and earned a berth in the Holiday Bowl. He moved on to Navarro the following season and served as offensive coordinator in 2007 when the Bulldogs went 9-3 and won the conference crown. Nick took over as head coach the next year, with his first squad finishing 10-1 and ranked fourth in the final poll. An 11-1 campaign and No. 3 ranking followed in 2009. Bobeck and the Bulldogs put it all together in 2010, following a seasonopening loss with 11 consecutive wins to finish 11-1 and capture the NJCAA national championship. Navarro was 10-2 this past season, finishing fifth in the final ranking. Nick’s wife, Keely, is an assistant coach for the UCO softball team and helped the Bronchos go 41-17 in earning a Division II national tournament berth in 2014. They have two children -- a son (Tucker, born in April 2012) and a daughter (Miller, born in June 2014).

Since its inception in 1948, the majority of games were played at Roosevelt Field, which was dedicated in 1936 and was home to the Excelsior Springs High School Tiger athletes until 2003. In 2004 the new Tiger Stadium was completed on the campus of Excelsior Springs High School, and hosted its first ever Mineral Water Bowl game. The stadium features seating purchased from the Truman Sports Complex, home of the Chiefs NFL team and the Royals MLB team, as well as a Sprint Turf field, modern press box, scoreboard and several other amenities. Since the completion of Tiger Stadium, the MWB has hosted teams on the Astroturf field for 11 years. 2013 Mineral Water Bowl Brown’s MILL INN RESTAURANT Prescription Drug Jim Ivie • Shannon Stallings Larry Greim we now accept credit cards!

This year marks the 49th annual MWB and due to year round diligence from club members, is expected to be the best bowl game ever. The Quarterback Club, on the surface, would lead one to believe that their organization is focused solely on giving back to sports programs, but the truth of the matter is that the Quarterback Club gives back a good portion of money raised to academic and arts programs within the community and surrounding areas. Quarterback Club MWB Executive Director Roger Siegel said the most important role played by the QB Club is “giving back to area youth.” Since the MWB inception in 1949 the committee members from QB Club have met twice a month, every year. Siegel added that the group also meets no less than once a week during bowl season to map out all of the necessary details to welcome two out of town football teams to Excelsior Springs. The QB Committee has no less than 10 leaders who contribute to their board, the president currently being Patty Kistner. “We work year round to host the Mineral Water Bowl,” Siegel explained. “It takes count- less hours to put the event together all so that we can make the football players and their staff and friends feel at home in Excelsior Springs for three days. It’s also an important day to bring together our community for what is surely one of the best days of football for fans in and around town.” For nearly 50 years the QB Club has brought in visitors during Mineral Water Bowl week from surrounding cities and states, introducing newcomers to the many amenities offered in Excelsior Springs. But, Siegel said the MWB isn’t the only event the committee organizes throughout the year. “The Quarterback Club doesn’t just focus on the Mineral Water Bowl,” he said. “We also host a yearly golf tournament, host the concession stands during youth wrestling tournaments, adopt families at Christmas time and a lot more.” Although the MWB is the group’s largest fundraiser of the year, the committee does reach out through other various events to raise even more money for youngsters in Excelsior Springs. T he City of Excelsior Springs would like to extend the warmest welcome to the visitors, families and guests of the 49th Annual Mineral Water Bowl. We hope you enjoy your visit to our community and find the experience both entertaining and relaxing. Please take time to explore all the benefits our small town has to offer: historic landmarks, fine dining and shopping, an 18hole golf course, plus more than 90 acres of parkland, walking trails, and lakes for families and their active lifestyles. Excelsior Springs is a great place to live. Please enjoy your stay!
