2011 Top 5 Memories

2011 was one of the most memorable years in the history of the Greenville College Football program. On this the last day of 2011 we wanted to look back and rank our top 5 EMAP memories. It was such a great year we couldn't settle for only 5!

What are your favorite memories of 2011? Let us know on our Facebook fan page.



5a. 2011 NCAA Victory Bowl


For the third time in Greenville College history the Panthers were invited to the National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA) National Championship game bowl game. The "Victory Bowl" took place in Campbellsville, KY as the Panthers took on the Tigers of Campbellesville University. The bowl included a service project and a banquet. You can see highlights (both good and not so good) here.

5b. Championship Play, Championship Lives Bowl

For the first time in Panthers history the legends of the past suited up again to once again reign terror on Francis Field. On the Friday of Homecoming weekend the JV Panthers took on a team made up of former Panthers. Over 30 Greenville College alumni suited up for the game. The success of this game will ensure a 2012 CPCL Bowl.

4.  Senior Day Comeback

With one quarter to play the Panthers faced a 23 point deficit and it seemed that this 2011 Senior Day would end in defeat. Unfortunately for the Northwestern Eagles23 points was not enough to slay the mighty Panthers. Greenville College  scored all of their points in the 4th quarter to defeate the Eagles 27-23. The final touchdown  was scored by SO RB Immanuel Gamble.



3. Terminator Olympics

The last day of spring practices was a night to remember for the Panthers. A full night of competetion included a P90X workouts, a dance contest, arm wrestling, towel contest and a jog to the Brinier building and back. The Olympiad ended in the early morning with a well earned breakfast. SO LB Cody Lopez took top honors that night but every Panther involved will remember that night.

2. Philly Trip

The 22 players and coaches from the Greenville College Football team left Greenville on Friday March 11th at 4PM ready for a unique spring break experience. The team traveled to Philadelphia, PA for a  spring break missions trip. While in Philly  the team cleaned a park, ran a football camp, spread the gospel of Jesus and provided some labor for different community projects. It was a memorable trip for everyone who went.



1. The Eureka Game

In the middle of October the Panthers traveled to Eureka, IL to battle UMAC foe Eureka College. The game would be the most memorable of the season. With seven seconds remaining in the game the Panthers faced a 3rd down on the Eureka seven yard line, down 28-33. It was SO QB Brendan Chambers ) who found SR WR Ryan Boezeman in the end zone for the go ahead score.

The winning drive for the Panthers began 10 plays earlier and 53 yards away from the end zone. Greenville had just watched their 15 point lead vanish after the third 4th quarter Eureka touchdown. The drive included two huge plays; a 21 yard pass from Chambers to SR TE Demontrez Simington on a 3rd and 9 and a 23 yard pass from Chambers to FR WR Trik Scott. After the Boezeman touchdown, Greenville held off a Eureka Hail Mary attempt when SR DB John Smith intercepted the pass as time expired

This is the second year a Panther has played in the All American Bowl. Last season Anthony Ambers, David Butler and Tim Burroughs represented Greenville College in the bowl game.

The All American Bowl was founded in 1996 to give athletes the opportunity to compete against the best at their level in an all star game setting. The All American Bowl was created to fill the void of the lack of all star games available to athletes in High School, DII, DIII, JUCO, and minor league football.

Super Seniors

During the season we will be posting weekly player profiles. Tyson Stakes is going to provide the family, friends, fans, and alumni of the Greenville Panthers a deeper view of some of our players. The final installment looks at senior safeties John Smith (Aurora, IL) and Andy Lozano (Desert Hot Springs, CA).

Tyson Stakes: The season is over now, and you guys are both seniors. How are you feeling about the way the final chapter in your college football career is done?

Andy Lozano: You always want your last game to be the winning game. but at the same time, being on the defense, we just played our best game we played at the Victory Bowl.


John Smith: I think before the game Kiso said to me and Andy, "You know, after the game you should feel we left it all on the field, don't save your energy for anything because this is it." I think that helped us play really hard. Even though we lost, it wasn't the loss that made us feel sad. I think we were sad about not being able to play any more games together, rather than the loss itself.

Andy: I think it's funny because the night before, John and I were in the hotel room. Some freshman asked us how we feel and it hit us then. It's like you don't think about it until it's happening. You look at everyone's faces and you know you're all never going to be in the same place again. Coach Gaylord throwing a football at my head...


John: He threw a football at your head?


Andy: Yeah!


Tyson: That's really tender. (Laughs). So John you're a DM major and Andy, what major are you?


Andy: I'm going to be a double major in Adult Fitness and Biology.

Tyson: That's really cool. What are your plans after you graduate? How are you going to impact the world?

Andy: I'm going back to live my parents for the next 20 years! Just kidding! (Laughter).


John: I don't really have any jobs set up for as soon as I graduate, but I'm interested in doing videos. Possibly overseas for ministries. This interterm I'm going on a trip to Bolivia to do exactly that. We're going to be doing a video for a ministry called Operation Restoration. They take children off the street, put them homes, feed them, clothe them, educate them and then they present the Gospel to them after all that. So yeah, we're going down there to make a 20 minute video to promote their ministry. And, I think, I'd like to do something along those lines post-college.


Andy: I'm not sure what I want to do but the thing I'm leaning to is going to Logan College of Chiropractic. They offer sports rehab major, and masters programs. Also, in February I'm doing a football camp combine with Ryan Boezeman. I'm not completely done with football and I want to see if I can make it to the next level. I think I'll give it one more chance to see if I can take it farther. I'm also interested in the Navy. There's just so many things. Maybe even a Pokémon Master. (Laughs).

Tyson: I've already been the Pokémon Master for quite some time. (Much laughter). Having been on the football team all four years, and having interacted with the coaches and the players, what has been the main impact of your college career?

Andy: I think the main message of EMAP is: BE A MAN. If there was one thing that the program has taught me it's the fact that your commitment should not be based on the level of glamor of being on the football team.


John: To add onto that, always play hard and practice hard even though you're not going to play in front of 50,000 people, you might only be playing in front of a few hundred.


Tyson: Alright thanks guys. I wish you luck in your various post-collegiate pursuits!

Panthers Can't Tame Tigers in Victory Bowl


The 2011 season for the Greenville College Panthers (7-4, 7-2 UMAC) ended in defeat Saturday. The Panthers fell in a defensive battle to the Campbellsville University Tigers (7-5, 3-2 MSC) 21-7. 

Five turnovers were not enough for the Panthers to be victorious in the 2011 National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA) Victory Bowl. In a reversal of roles, it was the Panther defense that provided the big plays on Saturday.

Interceptions by SR Safety Andy Lozano (Desert Hot Springs, CA) and SO LB Cody Lopez (Bonita, CA) ended potential scoring drives for Campbellsville. The Panthers defense also forced 4 Tiger fumbles recovering 3.

Although it turned into a defense battle, it appeared early that the Victory Bowl would be a Kentucky-style shootout.

The game began with a couple of quick scores by both teams. The Tigers used a trick play to score on the second play from scrimmage. The 58 yard double pass would be the only touchdown the Panther defense would concede all day.

Greenville would not wait long to answer. The ensuing kickoff was returned 86 yards by FR WR Tre' Lewis (Belleville, IL).

That was the end of the "shoot-out".

The next score wouldn't come until 2:34 left in the second quarter. A 52 yard run by SO QB Brendan Chambers (San Clemente, CA) put the Panthers on the Tiger 21 yard line. After a one yard run, Chambers errant pitch was recovered and returned 82 yards for the second Campbellsville score of the day.

The second half scoring began in the third quarter, when a 12 play 73 yard Tiger drive ended with a 19 yard FG, making the score 17-7 in Campbellsville favor.

The Tiger defense scored next, tackling SO RB Bryce Wright (Peoria, AZ) in the end zone for a safety.

The final score came when the Panthers faced a fourth down on their own 2 yard line. Greenville called for the punter to take a knee in the end zone. This prevented the Tigers from making it a three score game.

It was all for not as the Panthers could not muster a Victory Bowl comeback.

Offensively Chambers combined for 121 total yards. SR WR Ryan Boezeman (Demott, IN) Caught 4 passes for 19 yards.

The Panther defense was led by SR LB Kiso Faletufuga (San Diego, CA). The final game of his career was quite possibly his best. He finished with 14 tackles, 1 tackle for loss, 2 forced fumbles and 1 fumble recovery.

FR DL DeMarcus Green (East St. Louis, IL) had an incredible game as well. The nose guard had 12 tackles, 1 sack and 4 tackles for loss. In addition to his interception Lopez had 12 tackles and 2 tackles for loss. Lozano added 8 tackles,1 tackle for loss and 2 pass breakups to his interception.

This loss ended the Panthers 7 game winning streak and the 2011 season.

The next game for the Panthers is their 2012 opener Saturday September 8th against Millikin University.

The Greenville College Panthers (7-3, 7-2 UMAC) drove over 14 hours for their seventh victory of the season.

Comeback City Population: Panthers

With one quarter to play the Panthers faced a 23 point deficit. The situation looked bleak and it seemed that this 2011 Senior Day would end in defeat. Unfortunately for the Northwestern Eagles (6-4, 6-3 UMAC) 23 points was not enough to slay the mighty Panthers. Greenville College (6-3, 6-2 UMAC) scored all of their points in the 4th quarter to defeate the Eagles 27-23.

It was the visiting Eagles who struck first on Senior Day. Northwestern scored 16 points on four Panther turnovers in the 1st quarter. This included a muffed punt that led to a safety. The Panther offense continued to be silent in the second quarter. The Eagles managed the only score in the 2nd quarter after a 96 yard drive. It would be the last time a Eagle landed in the end zone.

The Panther defense rallied in the third quarter shuting out Northwestern. Unforuntuently the Eagles kept pace and kept the Panthers from changing the scoreboard. At the end of the 3rd quarter Greenville was looking down the barrel of a 23 point gun.

The historic Panther comeback began with a 21 play 98 yard drive that ended with a 3 yard touchdown run by JR RB Anthony Moore (Troup, TX). The next touchdown drive was shorter but just as important. SO QB Brendan Chambers (San Clemente, CA) capped a 4 play 42 yard drive with a 30 yard touchdown scamper, making the score 23-13

After the Panther defense forced the eighth Eagles punt of the game, Greenville took over at their own 37 yard line. On the 9th play of the drive Chambers hit FR WR Tre Lewis (Belleville, IL) for a 24 yard touchdown. That cut the Eagles lead to 3 with 5:04 left to play.

One first down and 82 seconds later the Greenville defense forced another Northwestern punt. Chambers and the Greenville offense took over at their own 24 yard line, down 3 with 3:42 left. The Panthers looked confident as they drove the 76 yards, ending in a SO RB Immannuel Gamble (St. Louis, MO) 5 yard touchdown run. Greenville took their first lead of the day, 27-23 with 1:04 left.

The Eagles took one more shot at the win only to be intercepted by SO CB Anthony Everett (Chicago, IL). The Panthers took a knee and celebrated their sixth win of the season.

Chambers finished the day 19 of 31 passing for 251 and 1 touchdown. He also rushed for 50 yards on 15 attempts and 1 touchdown. SR WR Ryan Boezeman (Dmott, IN) had a carear day pulling down 12 receptions for 160 yards. Gamble led the team in rushing with 108 yards.

Panthers Resist the Red Devils, Win 36-33



With seven seconds remaining in the game the Panthers faced a 3rd down on the Eureka seven yard line, down 28-33. It was SO QB Brendan Chambers (San Clemente, CA) who found SR WR Ryan Boezeman (Demott, IN) in the end zone for the go ahead score.

The winning drive for the Panthers began 10 plays earlier and 53 yards away from the end zone. Greenville had just watched their 15 point lead vanish after the third 4th quarter Eureka touchdown.

The drive included two huge plays; a 21 yard pass from Chambers to SR TE Demontrez Simington (Atlanta, GA) on a 3rd and 9 and a 23 yard pass from Chambers to FR WR Trik Scott (Owings Millis, MD).

After the Boezeman touchdown, Greenville held off a Eureka Hail Mary attempt when SR DB John Smith (Aurora, IL) intercepted the pass as time expired.

For Greenville College (4-3, 4-2 UMAC) it was their fourth straight win. Eureka College (4-3, 4-2 UMAC) suffered their second UMAC loss in consecutive weeks.

The defense finally broke out of their interception slump snagging three on Saturday. In addition to Smith's, SR DB Andy Lozano (Desert Hot Springs, CA) and SO LB Cody Lopez (Bonita, CA) joined the pick party.

On Fire, for Firewalls

During the season we will be posting weekly player profiles. Tyson Stakes is going to provide the family, friends, fans, and alumni of the Greenville Panthers a deeper view of some of our players. The fourth installment looks at SO LB Matt Schuman (Geneva, IL) and SR CB Chris Gunn (Jacksonville, FL).

In an ever changing world of technologies and communication, where does God fit in? This is the question that many churches and church leaders have been asking. Some have embraced technology, and used it to their church’s advantage. Still others find technology to only be a distraction; keeping us from God and His will.


As IT Help Desk employees and general computer science geeks, Greenville Panther footballers Matt Schuman and Chris Gunn believe that their love for computers and talent for solving complex technological problems was a gift from God. They both strive to implement their love for technology into furthering the Kingdom.

I had the opportunity to sit down with both Matt and Chris, and discuss their affection for the whir of the computer modem.

Tyson Stakes: What got you guys started doing computer stuff?

Matt Schuman: Well my mom is an IT person and that kinda got me started in 8th grade. 
 Chris Gunn: Wow you started early! (Laughs). I didn’t start getting into computers until I was a junior in high school and I had a computer class so I decided that I wanted to go to college and do computer stuff. 

MS: How’s that working out for you? 
 CG: It’s going pretty good! 

TS: So Matt, your mom is an IT person. Describe your first experience with computers. 

MS: I guess it would probably be with restrictions on my computer with stalling stuff. And I tried to get around it and started messing with computers and I wanted to see what I could do. 

TS: Chris, you said you had a computer class as a junior… What, in that class, sparked your interest? 

CG: I think it was the first few weeks and I didn’t get anything and the teacher came over and had to everything for me. One day I decided to pay attention and I actually did something myself. When I was finally able to do something myself, it ended up being the best program in class and I was so excited. It felt good. I felt accomplished.

TS: That’s a cool story. When did you guys start working at the IT Help Desk?

MS and CG: Last semester.
MS: We were new at the same time. We walked upstairs holding hands. (Laughs).

TS: Is it hard working at the IT Desk? 

CG: Not really, it’s cool. Majority of the time it’s just general stuff like changing passwords. 
MS: Yeah, especially at the start of the semester. For the most part it’s pretty easy. But some days, you get like ten things at once. Sometimes, I won’t say who, but some profressors… 
CG: Man… 

TS: I can understand that. Trying to work with people who have no idea what they’re doing is always frustrating. Does either of you guys get ragged on by the football team for being nerds?

CG: No… I usually get, “Fix my Xbox!” 
MS: I do at times. A lot of times, like when the projector isn’t working. Usually I just point at Chris!
CG: And I’m always like, “Hey, I’m not doing that!” Whenever there is a computer problem, coaches usually direct them over to either Schuman or I. 

TS: What do you see yourselves doing after you graduate with your Computer and Science degrees? 

MS: I want to do network security, like for companies and test their firewalls. 

TS: Like that Harrison Ford movie, Firewall? 

CG: I have a bunch of people telling me to send in resumes to places. My aunt works for IBM and she said that she could help get me a job there. I don’t really know what else I would do; anything that isn’t programming. Network security is fun though. 
MS: Over the summer I worked at my church doing IT. And I had to reinstall something on their computers and only one parent’s password had nothing to do with their kids. (All laugh)

TS: As IT geeks, how do you see technology as part of the Christian walk? 

MS: I think it can. It’s always interesting to find out how your career choice can be for God. Like finding how you play football for God. I think you can do that with computers. I’m not sure yet, how. But I feel like there’s a reason that God has given me these gifts and I feel that He is calling me down that path. I feel like there is some way that He wants me to further His purpose. 
CG: It was invented because God gave us the ability to do it. There is a reason that it is here. There should be people who embrace it a little more, and stop hating it. I feel like I should embrace it because God gave me the talents to use it. I think then I should use it for His name. 

TS: Well thanks guys for taking time out of your schedules to do this interview. 
CG: Anytime my good sir!
