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 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.
