5. Coach Walker is named Head Coach

The first memory on our list came in late January 2010. This is when Greenville College selected their sixth head football coach in the program's history. Coach Walker, who served as assistant head coach since 2004, has been a member of Greenville's coaching staff since 2003. This was a top 5 memory because of the influence Coach Walker has had on the program, players and fans.

4. Shock & Awe (Spring and Fall)

The next memory on this list happened twice in 2010. The first was the start of spring practices in April. It was a great introduction to the current players to the intensity and effort the staff was going to demand from them. This introduction was given again in August during the first practice. A combination of P90X and grinders set the tone for a championship season.

3. Millikin JV Game

The third and most exciting JV game of the season is the next memory on the list. With only 1:29 left in the game Millikin had just scored to go up by 3. This was when freshman Immanuel Gamble returned the kickoff for a touchdown. Game, Panthers! This helped the JV team to a 3-1 record in 2010.

2. Dome Day/ UMAC Championship

Earning the second spot on this list was the game that clinched the Panthers 2010 UMAC championship. Playing in the Metrodome in Minneapolis, Minnesota Greenville took on the talented Crown College Storm. It was freshman Ty Williams who stole the show with his 192 yards rushing and 4 touchdowns. Greenville won the game 51-20 and repeated as champions in 2010.

1. Panthers Sweep UMAC Awards

The final memory for 2010 for the Panthers came in November after the last games were played and the equipment was shelved for the year. When the all-conference award winners were named it was clear that everyone had seen what a great season the Panthers had in 2010. Greenville College won the UMAC Coach of the Year, Offensive, Defensive, Special Teams Player of the Year and Lineman of the year. It was a great honor for the entire team and college.

2010 was a great year for Greenville College Football. We are excited to see what the Lord has in store for our players and coaches for 2011.

Happy New Year!
