Stipulations: No one plays both ways on my team (excluding two who will be removed from certain positions when I can think of legitimate replacements for them, just an example of how lineman should get more credit, it would make these teams much easier to put together). I don't have the years they played, may possibly update it in the near future to include, but I'm drawing from the entirity of Trinity football not just the last 10-15 years.
Head Coach: Chuck Noll
Offensive Coordinator: Greg Grinsteinner - We will be utilizing a Option offense.
Defensive Coordinator: Jerry Holinka - Using the 4-4.
QB - Todd Kovash, Jacob Odermann - Kovash is the unanimous selection here. It was a toss up between Kyle Odermann and his younger brother Jacob, but people in the know have said that Jacob was a better Quarterback then Kyle, just didn't have as many years to show it.
HB - Kyle Steffes, Tom Willer, Calvin Bergenheier - I believe Steffes is recent enough where I don't need to explain why he makes the team. Tom Willer was an awesome, dominating running back in the 70's with a great combination of strength and speed. Bergenheier started as a freshman and had around 1500 rushing both his sophomore and junior seasons.
FB - Bruce Kary, Brian Urbanec - True bruisers that you would want lead blocking for you on any team, could earn the hard yards better than anyone.
WR - Jon Ewoniuk, Brian Bergantein, Matt Ukestead, Chad Glasser - Ewoniuk had the speed to beat anyone up and down the field. Bergantein was faster. Ukestead had a combination of size and speed that you don't see on many AA teams and if he had been paired with Odermann just a year later the 2001 team would have been even more potent. Glasser was the best pure route runner I've seen on a Titan team, accompany that with his speed and he was one of the good ones.
TE - Lee Smith - Great combination of size and speed and blocking ability.
OL - Todd Wandler, Brent Wandler, Jared Bullinger, Jeremy Davis, Arnie Binek - Todd and Brent Wandler were members of the Wandler clan that dominated for the Titans for years on the OL. Jared Bullinger, while possibly undersized controlled the huddle and played his position better than anyone else I can think of. Jeremy Davis was a great all around blocker. To tell you the truth Arnie Binek is before my memory, played in the 60's, but my father told me he dominated.
DL - Lee Smith, John Odermann, Todd Wandler, Duke Adamski - Smith didn't play DE all that much, but he should have played it a lot more he dominated when he was placed there. Odermann had 18 sacks his junior year and 17 more his senior year. Wandler was the only person ever named to the prep All-American team. Adamski is another one who was before me recollection.
LB - Dale Smith, Jay Wandler, Mark Zastoupil, Joe Volk - Dale Smith was a commanding precense on the gridiron. Jay Wandler dominated the defensive side of the ball. Mark Zastoupil hit harder than most I've seen and Joe Volk knew what the opposing team was doing before they snapped the ball.
DB - Doug Hushka, Bob Willer, Kyle Odermann, Terry Kadrmas - Hushka went on to have an outstanding career at NDSU. Willer and Odermann had the speed along with the ability to read an offense and Kadrmas went on to have a big career at UND.
K - Zared Lefor - Can't really think of any off the top of my head so we'll go with the 2001 teams.
P - Mitch Stevens - Only because he is the only punter in school history to have a punt of -1 yards in a playoff game.
