Howard's Victory in the Navy Classic Finals
The Flynn Era Looks Different

It officially began at 7:02 p.m. according to the clock beamed into my cell phone by the folks at Verizon. It really began with about 2:32 left in the first half of McDaniel's season opener with Frostburg, which was played out in the tight confines of Goldfarb Gymnasium at Johns Hopkins. It might be the most important 2:32 seconds of basketball played by the Terror men in a pair of decades.

Trailing by 13, the McDaniel College men's basketball team stepped out of character -- a character now older than the majority of the roster. Instead of saying, "here we go again," the team decided it was time to get going.

McDaniel embarked on a 9-0 run down to the buzzer. Josh McKay, Chris Prior, and Chris Rutland supplied the answer McDaniel has long needed in the form of points, and more importantly, the undaunted team supplied play with a purpose, thus beginning the Bob Flynn era.

The Terror kicked off the season with a win in a tournament. That was nothing new for McDaniel. But a second win followed a tough loss to a tough Hopkins team. That second win was McDaniel's first defeat of Washington College since 1993, and the Terror wrapped up third place in the eight-team Pride of Maryland Tournament with a 2-1 start.

That record marks the best start for a McDaniel men's team since the 2001-2002 season, before any of the current players were on the roster. None of the current players need to look any further than the newest coach on the staff, Sam Anstead, to find out how that season ended up. After beginning the season at 2-0 and winning three of the first four, McDaniel went 3-18 the rest of the way.

As the cliche goes, it's not how you start, it's how you finish. If you're McDaniel, its about what you do between now and the finish line that will continue to set the tone for the future of this beleaguered program.

The reality of the situation is that nothing about this team resembles that '01-'02 team. This version of the Terror is most assuredly going to get its wins under the senior leadership of Chris Rutland and Mike Dipiero, but it is going to take its share of lumps as well.

The promise of McKay's soft touch on a previously undisclosed long-range shot, the confidence of Ryan Finch's pinpoint and timely shooting, and the raw excitement supplied by Chad Arrington's energetic and explosive play will combine with the hustle and personality imbued on the team by the leadership and court vision of Dipero and Rutland to make McDaniel a formidable foe right now. That should make the final tally of wins and losses far more favorable than the single digit and teen record McDaniel fans have begrudgingly grown accustomed to.

Away from the wins and losses columns, the much talked about and statistically immeasureable moral victory was in the fight. Over-matched and trailing Johns Hopkins, a team that has been bandied about in Centennial Conference Championship talk, the Terror drained three after three in a desperate comeback bid that may have been successful if the game was a few minutes longer. It wasn't, but the next two assured meetings should be interesting.

The determination in that bid was matched only by the calm demeanor up and down the floor, and up and down the bench. The Terror never got wide-eyed by the double-digit leads it faced in two games this weekend. The panic button that used to be pressed pretty quickly was never even considered. They just kept coming.

And a couple of years from now, when McDaniel's name is tossed around with Franklin & Marshall, Johns Hopkins, Ursinus, and Gettysburg in playoff talk, think back to 7:02 on Friday, November 18, 2005, and about the events that transpired about a half-an-hour later in Goldfarb, because you can't get to where you are going without the first step. The Terror took a big one that night in a span of 2:32, it didn't quit.

Seven Terror Gridders Named All-CC; Ringgold Unanimous First Team Choice

Seven players on the McDaniel College football team were named to the 2005 All-Centennial Conference football squad on Monday. Five players on defense and a pair on offense were named to the league’s First and Second Teams. McDaniel was not represented on the Honorable Mention listing.

Junior Drew Abbamonte (Damascus, MD / Damascus) along with seniors Chase Noll (Wilmington, DE / McKean) and Ron Ringgold (Aberdeen, MD / Aberdeen), were named to the defensive first team.

Abbamonte was a constant disruption to opponents’ passing game nabbing six passes for 68 return yards. He also broke up 11 passes this season. The junior free safety recorded 82 tackles to finish second on the squad in that category. 51 of his tackles were unassisted efforts with four resulting in a loss of yards.

Noll recorded a team-high six-sacks from his nose guard position resulting in 44 yards of losses for McDaniel’s opposition. He recorded 44 tackles, forced two fumbles and blocked a kick in 2005.

Ringgold, a middle linebacker, recorded 136 tackles, the fifth most prolific season of stops in McDaniel’s football history. His 72 solo tackles represents the fifth best season on record in that category. Amongst his tackles were four sacks. He also forced a fumble and recorded three interceptions and tacked on 77 return yards, 41 of which came on a touchdown return in the win against Ursinus.

Defensive back Andy Lee (Bethesda, MD / Walt Whitman) and punter Corey Allen (Rockville, MD / Magruder) were each named to the Second Team Defense. Working opposite of Abbamonte, the strong safety was third on the team in tackles with 66 stops. He broke up 6 passes and intercepted another to go along with a forced fumble and a fumble recovery.

Allen finished his career as the only punter to pass the 8,000-yard barrier in Green Terror history. The senior kicked 77 times for a school record 2,824 yards averaging 36.7 yards per punt. Allen dropped 17 kicks inside his opponent’s 20-yardline this season, leaving several on the 1-yardline, including once in each of the season’s final to weeks. He boomed a career long punt of 68 yards at Muhlenberg this season.

McDaniel’s two offensive players honored were both juniors. Offensive lineman Rob Jones (Middle River / EVT) and Wide Receiver Chris Martin (Clarksville, MD / River Hill) were each named Second Team All-Centennial.

Jones centered a line that afforded McDaniel runners 3.4 yards per carry in 2005, while Martin was second on McDaniel’s roster with 26 receptions and 241 yards for 9.3 yards per catch.

The Green Terror finished the season at 5-5 marking the first time since 1996 the team finished at or below .500.

Morrow Named Conference Player of the Year

McDaniel junior back Scott Morrow has been selected as the Conference's Men's Soccer Player of the Year in balloting by the CC's 10 head coaches. Morrow was a conistent stopper on a stingy defense. He led the Green Terror defense to a Centennial-best 11 shutouts this season and his team to the top seed for this weekend's Conference championship tournament. Morrow was also a first-team selection last season.

The Terror also placed 3 other players on the first team. Senior forward Todd Knepper led the Terror with 7 assists on the season and also tallied 4 goals. This marks the second consecutive season that Knepper has been a first team selection. Senior Midfielder Thomas Kane was also a first team selection for McDaniel.

Kane was also a first team selection in 2003 and the Centennial Conference Player of the Year that year as well. Senior goalie Andrew Wu was also named to the first team. Wu was outstanding in net all season recording an amazing 8 shutouts on the season and posted a 12-2-2 record.

McDaniel Pair Named Players of the Week
They're both accomplished seniors staring down the end of their careers. One kicks an odd shaped ball, the other stops a round ball kicked. They have two things in common: 1. Last week, no one did their job better. 2. The Centennial Conference agreed.

Corey Allen was named the Special Teams Player of the Week on the gridiron. The most prolific punter in McDaniel's history punted 9 times for 340 yards (37.8 ypp). He boomed a long of 47 yards, and dropped 3 inside of the 20, including a punt left on the Dips one yardline.

Andrew Wu was named the CC's co-Player of the week on the soccer pitch. It's the third time this season the Westminster native has been recognized by the Conference. He ran his amazing scoreless streak to 593:49. McDaniel would like an additional 180:00 scoreless minutes out of Wu this weekend as the Terror hosts the Centennial Conference Men's Soccer Championship Tournament.

Eiser Named 2nd Team All-Conference
Senior Krista Eiser was named to the All-Centennial Conference second team. Eiser led the Terror this season in blocks with 101. She also finished 3rd on the team in kills with 208. Eiser finished 4th on the team with 32 total service aces.
