Yes, It's Purple & Orrville Alums playing College Football

I'm a man of my word....and these were my words on the Triway game preview post...
"I'll even go as far to say that if we lose to Triway, I'll display the proud purple on this website until our week 3 game with Copley. The Triway colors will take over Red Rider Sports Blog for 1 week."
I don't like it either......

It was an ugly night at Triway Stadium, so rather than rehash that mess....let's talk about Orrville alums playing on Saturday at the college level. By my count, we have 11 young men playing for various colleges both in and out of Ohio.

Let's take a look at each of them.

Ohio Northern - Kyle Simmons and Josh Bowman. The Polar Bears won their first game today, upsetting #4 ranked North Central (Ill.) by a 28-19 score. Kyle is the starter at QB and went 20-31 for 196 yds with 1 TD and also ran for 59 yds. Josh was credited with 2 tackles, both on special teams. Kyle is one of the team captains for ONU this year.

Heidelberg - Tony McMorrow (#99), Mike McMorrow (#11), Steven Carozza (#56), Angel Kazim (#16). The 'Berg won their opening game against Westminster by a 43-26 score. Steven Carozza was listed as the starting defensive tackle.

Western Michigan - Tim Hiler. Not a good day for Tim and the Broncos, they were handled 31-7 by Michigan. Tim was 22 for 26 for 259 yds with 1 TD pass and 2 INT's. Tim is one of WMU's captains this year.

West Liberty State - Kameron Barnes. West Liberty won their opener of Walsh by a 48-17 score. Kam saw action as a 2nd team lineman.

Akron - Rhyne Ladrach. Rhyne earned the starting TE spot for the Zips, but they were outmatched by Penn St. today, losing 31-7.

Otterbein - Aaric Milligan. The Cardinals won their opener over Bethany by a 28-7 score.

Malone - Brynt Werntz. The Pioneers won their first game by a 35-19 score over Apprentice (Va.).

Thanks, Tim. This is a great follow up to former Red Riders. It's hard to keep track of them, so I really appreciate this feature.

As for the purple, ugh! Please don't promise any Blue & Gold on your Rider site!

Keep up the good work.
