Article from about the ODAC and Parity

One word defines ODAC Parity. For the past five years, I’ve interviewed coaches in the ODAC for’s preseason Kickoff publication. And each year, coaches talk more and more about the balance in the conference. On any given Saturday, any team can win. And it’s not just talk in the ODAC, it’s the truth. Early in this century, Bridgewater dominated the league and made some deep playoff runs, including a trip to the Stagg Bowl in 2001. Since 2006, though, we’ve seen Washington and Lee, Hampden-Sydney and Randolph-Macon all take a turn in the NCAA postseason. The downside to this regular-season parity is that since 2006, ODAC teams are 0-7 in the playoffs....

Nice Article on Saturday's Game from

EMORY, Va. -- Seconds after Saturday’s ODAC football game at Fred Selfe Stadium, Hampden-Sydney receiver Sean Cavanagh walked to midfield, shook his head and summed up the three hour and 19 minute thrill-fest. “Man, that was insane,” said Cavanagh as his giddy teammates danced around him. In a marquee homecoming showdown before 5,398 fans, HSC and Emory & Henry combined for 925 yards, nine turnovers and enough big plays to fill a season highlight package. For the third time this season, E&H came up one play short in a 38-36 loss to the Tigers. Long after consoling his anguished players, emotional E&H head coach Don Montgomery struggled to come to terms with the latest soul-sucking loss “This is a very challenging feeling,” Montgomery said. “It’s not easy on these young men to keep bouncing back. You’ve got to have a heart of steel.” The day started in nightmarish fashion for E&H, which lost two fumbles in the opening five minutes. Relying on their clever passing game, the Tigers built a 19-0 lead after the first quarter and led 38-24 entering the fourth quarter...

New Article on Kenny Fryman from The Mechanicsville Local

Kenny FrymanFryman sizzling on defense for Hampden-Sydney

Published: October 11, 2011
By Charlie Leffler
The Hampden-Sydney football team entered this season at a serious disadvantage when it came to experience on defense. Therefore to solidify the Tigers’ ability to stop opposing offenses, Head Coach Marty Favret looked to a pair of former Hanover High School players to step up their play.  Juniors Kenny Fryman and Steven Fogleman accepted that responsibility, excelling at linebacker and safety which allowed H-SC run off to a 5-1 start and outscore their opponents 239-105 through six games.

The Local Slant

The article below was from the Ferrum Panthers website.

HAMPDEN-SYDNEY, Va. -- Marcus Mayo and Dominique Lesine each scored a rushing touchdown for the Panthers, but Ferrum College fell 38-14 to Hampden-Sydney College in non-conference football action this afternoon on the road.

QB Travis Lane went 25-42 passing for 362 yards with a pair of TDs and two interceptions for Hampden-Sydney. Mayo was 13-28 passing for 232 yards with no TDs, and was picked off twice.

Mayo was Ferrum's leading rusher as well, gaining 62 yards on 13 carries. Marcco McNeal and Josh Oliver each had an interception for Ferrum (0-2). Shreve Rohl and Zach Morgan each had a pick for the Tigers (3-0), who led 24-7 at halftime.

Oliver, Tae Motley, Melvin Trotter, Tremaine Whitney and Chris Freycinet each had seven tackles for Ferrum. Freycinet recorded Ferrum's lone sack, good for a seven-yard loss.

Ferrum (0-2) will play its home-opener next Saturday, Sept. 24, against non-conference opponent Bridgewater College. The game coincides with Ferrum's Homecoming and Hall of Fame Weekend. Kickoff is set for 2 p.m. at W.B. Adams Stadium.

How Many Points Will the Tigers Score?

The Local Slant

This is the article posted on the NC Wesleyan website.
Rocky Mount, N.C. - Freshman Jacques Alston scored a pair of rushing touchdowns and racked up 151 return yards, but it would not be enough on Saturday as Hampden-Sydney cruised to a 56-17 victory at the Northern Nash Football Complex, spoiling the Bishops' 2011 home opener. The loss drops Wesleyan to 0-2 on the season, while the Tigers improve to 2-0.

HSC senior quarterback Travis Lane struck early and often, finding Kyle Vance for a 36-yard touchdown just 51 seconds into the game. The TD pass was the first of seven for Lane on the day, and the first of four that Vance would catch. The Tiger defense was equally as strong in the opening quarters, holding Wesleyan to just 67 yards of offense in the first half en route to a 35-0 HSC lead at intermission.  The Bishops got their offense going in the third quarter by taking the opening kickoff and driving 81 yards in 10 plays for the score. The drive was capped by a 33-yard scoring run by Alston down the left side, and Kevin Quicker's point-after made it 35-7.

Hampden-Sydney responded with another Lane-to-Vance touchdown, this time from 25 yards out, and he promptly posted a 50-yarder just minutes later. NCWC senior Keith Blunt, however, recorded an interception on HSC's next possesion to set up a 20-yard scamper by Alston that made the score 49-14 heading into the fourth....
