Centre Travels to DePauw to Face "Very Good" Tiger Team

"I think DePauw is a very good team, and I think we're good," he adds.

Centre comes to Blackstock Stadium with a 2-0 record. DePauw rolled to a 55-7 victory in its opener at Anderson last Saturday, collecting a school-record 665 yards of total offense and holding theKoors_Alex_2007FB_Action_vsWabash.jpg Ravens to 246 total yards. On the strength of the performance, the Tigers climbed three spots to #20 in the latest poll by D3football.com and junior wide receiver Alex Koors (pictured at right) was named Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Offensive Player of the Week.

Of DePauw senior quarterback Spud Dick, who threw for 405 yards and five touchdowns last week, Frye says, "He's got some good skill kids that can catch the ball and run good routes. That's what makes them so dangerous. As is his ability to get out of a bad play and make the bad play a good play. Right now, he's the premier quarterback in the conference, and we're going to have to contain him."

The Centre coach tells the newspaper, "We're going to have to score. I've got a picture of it being a scoring game. I don't see it being a defensive game. There might be three or four scores by both teams."
