Mime on a Mission

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 third installment looks at SO RB Manny Gamble (St. Louis, MO). 

 What kind of message do you want to convey to those who look up to you? No matter who you are, you always have others who look up to you; others who watch the things you do, and possibly reenact them. The Bible teaches us to train others in a way that uplifts them and brings them closer to God. There might not be a better example of this kind of mentoring than the Apostle Paul to his young friend Timothy. Our goal in mentoring should be to replicate this kind of relationship.


Whether he’s nimbly running past the opposite team’s defense, or gracefully gliding across his church’s stage, Sophomore Running Back Manny Gamble recognizes the importance of setting an example for others who look up to him. He and his brother perform interpretive mime-dance worship at his home church in St. Louis, MO. Through the popularity of such performances, Manny strives to convey a Christ-centered message to those who look up to him.

Tyson Stakes: So tell me, what exactly is mime dancing? 

Manny Gamble: It’s basically acting out a song, like a gospel song with movements and praising through movements instead of singing. And I paint my face white. It’s like an interpretive dance. 

TS: That’s interesting. I’ve seen a lot “bad” interpretive dance at church. How is this something that differs, and something that you love to do? 

MG: I’ve always danced a little bit, but that dancing really didn’t have much to do with church. My mom is a minister and she always says that every talent is a gift from God and that what we have we should always give a little back to Him. So, I guess this is my way of giving back to church and to God. And every move He gives me is not from me, but it’s from Him. And that’s pretty cool. 

TS: How did you get started doing this? 

MG: It was the most random thing ever. I was sitting in the back pew with my brother back home and randomly we both feel a tap on our shoulder and it was our pastor’s wife and she said that she had a vision for us. She wanted us to do this type of dance for a Martin Luther King celebration, for his “Mountain Top Speech.” She’s the one who really introduced us to mime. We just kinda took it from there and since then we’ve done it to different songs. That’s kind of how me and my brother just exploded at our church. It had to have been God, because we had never seen mime dance before. Every move had to be from God because we knew nothing. 

TS: That is pretty random, but awesome at the same time. How long have you been doing this?

MG: About six years now. I look back and think, “Wow… six years?” 

TS: Six years is a long time, but then again, I’m sure it doesn’t feel that way. What kind of songs do you and your like to dance to? 

MG: Obviously gospel songs. We like songs that give a message and that have a slow beginning but builds up to a real climax so that we can do a lot of movements and explosive stuff. Basically things that have a real good message we would want to communicate. 

TS: Is there any connection to your role in your church as a “servant performer” with football?

 MG: As my dancing “popularity” built at my church, a lot of youth started looking up to me and I had to start being a spiritual leader for them. It translated to football as incoming freshman look up to me, and I have to be a leader for them on the field. 

TS: So your role as a leader in church helped you lead on the field. 

MG: It brought me out of my shell a little bit. And as everybody starts to know you, you have to have a message for them. 

TS: Thanks for sharing about your mime dancing. 

MG: No problem! Hopefully I’ll be able to do it in Vespers. We’ll see what happens.

Dinner with the Ward's

What does it take feed the Greenville College Panthers?

Although that question varies day to day, this past Friday night it included 19 homemade lasagnas, 8 lbs of salad and 18 loaves of garlic bread, and 15 9x13 pans of desserts.

How in the world did we pull that off?

Well it was because of the sacrifice and committment of Larry, Chris and Mackalah Ward ('10) family of JR LB Michael Ward (Geneseo, IL).

Feeding the team is no small feat and having a meal includes a lot of hands. We are so grateful to the family members, fiances, and girlfriends of our team who are willing to take the time to love on our team by filling their tanks.

Panthers Can't Catch Blue Jays, Fall 45-28

The third time was not a charm for the Greenville College Panthers who lost their third game in as many tries Saturday. The Westminster College Blue Jays (4-0, 3-0 UMAC) broke a four game losing streak to the Panthers, winning by a final score of 45-28.

At the half the Panthers led the Blue Jays 14-12. The Blue Jays scored two touchdowns in the first quarter but could not convert either PAT. It was the third quarter where Westminster took the lead for good. Two drives of 69 and 72 yards in the quarter wore out the Panther defense. The fourth quarter began with another Blue Jay touchdown. The rest of the game was a back and forth with the final touchdown coming with 1:00 minute left in the game.

The Panthers were led by SO QB Brendan Chambers (San Clemente, CA) who had another stellar performance on the ground and in the air. Chambers rushed 20 times for 113 yards and threw for 115 yards on 10-20 passing with a touchdown. SR safety Andy Lozano (Desert Hot Springs, CA) led the defense with 11.5 tackles and 1.5 tackles for loss. FR DL Steven Sullivan had 2 tackles for loss and a sack.

The Blue Jays were led by SO QB Scott Rodgers who was 30-44, 409 yards and 4 touchdowns. On defense LB Jacob Rex had 7.5 tackles for Westminster.

On the Field and Behind Bars

 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 second installment looks at JR WR Cody Hutchin (Portland, OR).

  The call to service is a major part of the Christian faith. Jesus lived life with a servant’s heart, even though he was fully God and fully man. The kind of service that Jesus talks about isn’t just something that we do, it’s something we live. It should be an important aspect of how we approach any part of our lives, whether we are on the football field or up in the stands.


This week’s Player Profile is on Junior WR Cody Hutchin, who has recently decided to dedicate time towards helping serve prisoners as part of an on-campus prison outreach ministry.

Tyson Stakes: So, in a nutshell, what is this Prison Outreach Ministry that you’ve decided to be a part of?

Cody Hutchin: I guess the biggest key is showing the love of Christ. Hebrews 13:3 says to remember the prisoners as if you were a fellow prisoner. It’s definitely God’s calling; to remember the orphans, widows and prisoners. And if we can be witnesses through the education of the prisoners, then that’s the meat of the whole outreach. 

TS: So basically, you go into the prison and do education programs. 

CH: Yeah, that’s probably what I will do. There are a bunch of programs you can do, like teach guitar, etc. But that’s what I will be helping with. 

TS: You mentioned before earlier about a certain kind of training you need to do. What kind of training is required? 

CH: Basically the prison puts on this paid for training on set of rules. For example, you can’t give the prisoners “fist pounds,” or bring them newspaper articles. There are a lot of strict rules. But it’s pretty much just to train you on how not to mess with what the prison has going on. 

TS: What inspired you to decide to join this particular ministry?

CH: That’s a good question. I think, more or less, over the last year I’ve really be trying to find ways and broaden my ministry horizons. This last summer I helped with the Sunday school at my home church and I really enjoyed doing that. I love kids, but I didn’t know if that was something I would look forward to every week. But I really felt like God was telling me to take part of that ministry this past summer. I guess that’s the same feeling I got in chapel about what I should be doing this semester.

TS: So what, do you think, about playing football has prepared you for going to the prison? It’s definitely different than teaching Sunday school kids!

CH: (Laughs) That’s for sure. I think that it was less of the sport and more of the Greenville Football program. Coach Walker and the other coaches have really pushed me and challenged me in my faith and my walk, praying for boldness. Through Coach Walker’s prayer times and meetings, just being adamant about repenting because we don’t know when Jesus is coming. So that, in a way, has paved the way for not just this ministry, but also my life as well. 

TS: Great stuff Cody. Thanks for taking the time out of your busy college schedule to talk about what’s going on in your life outside of football.

CH: Oh please (sheepish embarrassed look)!

Panthers Comeback Falls Short


After spotting the Saints 27 points the Greenville College Panthers (0-2, 0-1 UMAC) fell short in their comback losing their first UMAC game 30-26. It was the College of St. Scholastica (2-0, 1-0 UMAC) that looked like the defending conference champions by scoring 20 points in the first half and keeping Greenville out of the endzone. After another Saints touchdown the Panthers finaly showed their claws, out scoring CSS 26-10.

After a timely stop by the defense, Greenville had the ball down 4 with 2:10 left in the game. They needed to drive 62 yards and score to finish one of the greatest comebacks in school history. After 9 plays the Panthers faced a third down from their own 24 with 4 seconds left. A Saints sack ended the comeback and the game.

SO Quarterback Brendan Chambers (San Clemente, CA) scored 3 of the 4 touchdowns and compiled 177 yards of total offense. SO running backs Immanuel Gamble (St. Louis, MO) and Bobby Hughley (New York, New York) rushed for 78 and 94 yards respectively. The defense was led by SR LB Kiso Faletufuga (San Diego, CA) who had 6 tackles and a sack. FR DL DeMarcus Greene (East St. Louis, IL) played a great game as well. He had 4.5 tackles and a timely 4th quarter fumble recovery.

The Saints we led by SR QB Alex Thiry who threw for 292 yards and 3 touchdowns. Their defense was led by LB Sean Graskey who had 8.5 tackles and 2.5 TFL's.

Good Beard, Better Leadership

 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 first installment looks at SO OL Jesse Tyrell (Loveland, CO)

Leadership is a quality that most men and women today steer clear of. Why is that? It could be because leadership comes laden with responsibilities. It could be because many do not think that they are fit for a leadership position. Regardless of the reason for shirking difficult roles, quality leadership is still necessary in any aspect of life, on and off the field. Sophomore Jesse Tyrrell has taken what he has learned playing offensive line for the Panthers and translated it into his role as the Resident Chaplain of 1st Kinney.

I had the chance to sit down with Jesse and discuss his capacity for being a leader of the men on his floor, and the men with whom he grapples the pigskin with on the green of Francis Field.


Tyson Stakes: What influenced your decision to become an RC? 

Jesse Tyrrell: I needed a job and I get paid to be an RC. Also, it’s an opportunity for me to speak God or Life into people. Just to kinda get out of my little world or whatever. 

TS: That’s cool. I respect needing a job. You’ve had to deal with some pretty crazy stuff on your floor already. How has that impacted you, leadership wise? 

JT: Well since it was on the second day of school it kinda threw me. I felt like I was thrown into the deep end pretty quick. It wasn’t overwhelming or anything. I felt prepared. It really wasn’t too big of a deal. 

TS: As a sophomore dealing with a lot of older students over in 1st Kinney, do you ever feel like you don’t really have any real authority or are you shooting for that? 

JT: I don’t see myself as having authority over them. I see myself as a student who has a little more responsibility than they do. I’m there to help them. I’m there to pray for them or be their friend or help them study. I respect them and ask them to respect me. 

TS: That’s a cool perspective to have. Do you think that your experience as an RC is going to help you out on the football field? 

JT: I would say that it’s the other way around; that football has helped me become prepared to be an RC. Football has a lot of adversity and it has helped me be able to deal with that, as Coach Walker says, “As a man, not a boy.” I’ve learned that I shouldn’t avoid conflict and just because I have conflict in my life I shouldn’t run from it but, deal with it in the proper way that it should be dealt with. 

TS: Do you have something cool that you like to do or any hobby outside of football?

JT: I can play guitar… kinda (laughs). Let’s just say I can grow a pretty nice beard.

Panthers Fall in Opener


After a intense nine month off season the Greenville College Panthers (0-1) expected to play their best in the season opener. It was Millikin who showed up strong on Saturday defeating the Panthers 51-13.


The Big Blue (1-1) scored on their first possession and never looked back. In addition to that touchdown running back Tyler Roush had 105 yards on 8 carries including a 48 yard scamper. 


It was JR QB Brendan Chambers who led the Panthers offense. Chambers was 13 for 23 throwing the ball for 144 with 1 touchdown and 1 INT. On the ground Chambers ran for 114 yards on 20 carries. SR WR Ryan Boezeman had the lone touchdown catch.

After the first score the Panther defense held strong for the rest of the quarter. It was the second quarter when the proverbial wheels fell off. It began with a 28 yard FG by Brettschneider. After a 28 yard touchdown pass from Holmes, LB Marquette Moore recovered a Panther fumble and ran it back 41 yards for a touchdown. The excitement form the Boezeman touchdown was short lived as Millikin ended the half with a 51 yard touchdown pass.

History was made during halftime. It was the debut of the Greenville College marching band.

After a third quarter Big Blue touchdown the Panthers had their second score of the day. FR WR Tre Lewis ran it in from 8 yards out. The PAT attempt was blocked.


Millikin finished the game with two more scores in the fourth quarter.


After the game Head Coach Ordell Walker tweeted, "EMAP is so close yet so far. I'm so exited for Monday and another chance to get better. A lot of good things on film."

Next week the Panthers kick off UMAC play when they host the College of St. Scholastica Saints.

UMAC Chat Wrap

Yesterday Head Coach Ordell Walker participated in a 30 minute chat session with four other UMAC coaches. It was a open forum where fans, friends and alumni could ask any question. Here is a summary of the questions that Coach Walker answered in the session. To read the full chat go here.

10:13
Coaches - what one player on offense and one player on defense from your team should fans be watching out for this season?

10:17
Comment From Ordell Walker  
One player on offense would be QB Brendan Chambers and Defensively safety Andy Lozano. Both are talented and have experience.

10:17
Comment From Harry  
Are any of you (coaches) on Twitter?

10:19
Comment From Ordell Walker  
Yes I mess around with twitter a little bit. Twitter name @coach_walk

10:20
Comment From Jared  
Coaches- It seems that every year each team's roster becomes more diverse in terms of players from different states. Is it key to bring in out of state talent to incorporate with the regional players that are already playing to be successful or not?

10:22
Comment From Ordell Walker  
Since Greenville is a Christian school that is serious about its integration of faith in athletics it is a necessity to expand our recruiting territory to find players who fit the school. We also love the diversity of backgrounds recruiting nationally brings to southern Illinois.

Coach Walker, You lost a large part of your offense with the graduation of Tony Anbers. How do you replace that?

Comment From Ordell Walker  
Francis, there is no way we can replace a guy as talented as Anthony Ambers. We hope a variety of different guys in different positions can share the load.

No red letter game for us. That is the great thing about college football they are all huge.

Coach Walker: What do you attribute most to your teams success over the past several seasons?

Comment From Ordell Walker  
Harry, we have been praying a lot. And each year we have been able to retain some players. Which in my early years here was a struggle. The players who have stayed have bought into the way we try to do football. Being on the same page philosophically is very important to us.
