HUNTINGDON, Pa. – The 2013 Juniata College football team is doing something that only two other squads in program history have.  The Eagles will play in a postseason contest.  Juniata (7-3) takes on Albright College Saturday, Nov. 23 at 1 p.m. for the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Southwest Bowl title.

 

Series History
This is the 57th meeting between Juniata and Albright.  The Lions lead the all-time series 33-22-1, but the programs have not faced since Juniata left the Middle Atlantic Conference after the 2006 season.  The last time Juniata defeated the Lions was at home in 2002.  Their last road win over Albright was in 1999.

 

Going to the Dance
It has been 40 years since Juniata football has played in a postseason game.  The last was the 1973 National Championship Stagg Bowl. Juniata's only other postseason appearance was in 1955 when it competed in the Tangerine Bowl.

 

Leader of the Pack
After just three seasons at the helm, Juniata football head coach Tim Launtz was named Centennial Conference Coach of the Year. He led the program to a 7-3 record (6-3 Centennial), third place finish in the league and Juniata's first postseason appearance in 40 years.

 

Big Man On The Line
Senior Brandon Felus was named Centennial Conference Defensive Player of the Year. He is the first Eagle to Eagle to earn player of the year honors in 14 years. Felus is tied for first in the league for tackles for a loss and is second in sacks.

 

Eight Men In
Juniata football saw eight Eagles named to All-Centennial Conference teams.  Three first-team, four second-team and one honorable mention mark the highest number of Eagles named all-conference in 11 years. Senior captains Brandon FelusKevin Gorman, and Jared Shope earned first-team honors, while juniors Ward UdinskiIsaiah SlutterKyle Schuck, and Josh Gongloffwere named second-team all-conference. Junior Ethan Wilt earned his first conference nod with an honorable mention selection.
