Hudson Valley Community College overcame a 10point halftime deficit to defeat 18th-ranked Erie Community College 26-22. Hudson Valley, which trailed 16-6 at the half, got the spark it needed late in the third quarter when freshman Leroy George returned an interception 46 yards for the touchdown to cut the Vikings deficit to 16-13. Hudson Valley then took a 20-16 lead on a 15-yar bootleg run by freshman quarterback Shamar Carr with 10:46 remaining in the game. The four-play, 27-yard drive was set up after the Vikings recovered a fumbled punt. After stopping the Kats on their next possession, Hudson Valley rattled off a 14-play, 80-yard drive that used up 6:49 of the clock. The drive was capped off when Carr hit sophomore tight end Tyshon Gurley with a six-yard touchdown pass. The pass came on a fourth down and five and a defender holding Carr's legs. Erie quickly drove down the field and scored on quarterback Andre Barbosa's third touchdown pass of the game to cut its deficit to 26-22. However the Vikings recovered the onside kick and were able to run out the clock. Hudson Valley, which punted only once in the game, controlled the clock.

2007 Season Review (continued)

The Hudson Valley Community College football team defeated RPI JV by a score of 26-2. Hudson Valley, which has not lost to Rensselaer's junior varsity squad in 16 all-time meetings, struggled to get its offense moving all day on the sloppy turf, amassing just five first downs and 180 total yards. RPI took a 2-0 lead early in the first quarter when the Vikings' long snapper overshot the punter and the ball went out of the end zone. However, Hudson Valley recovered the ensuing kickoff. On the next play from scrimmage, freshman quarterback Shamar Carr went around the left side 71 yards for a touchdown to give Hudson Valley a 7-2 lead. Freshman tailback Reidrick Alceus gave the Vikings a 13-2 late in the first quarter with a 73-yard touchdown run. Alceus finished the game with 101 yards on six carries. Freshman Eugene Cooper scored from 23-yards out on an end around to give the Vikings a 19-2 lead heading into the break. Hudson Valley's final score came on a 37-yard punt return by sophomore Nick Carr midway through the third quarter. The Vikings defense limited RPI to 11 yards on the ground and came away with three interceptions. Sophomore Jeremy Pruitt paced the defense with seven tackles.

The Lions then went 75 yards on five plays on its next possession to take a 10-0 lead. Neither team could capitalize after that. Nassau had the ball inside Hudson Valley's 20-yard line six more times in the game but the Vikings defense was able to hold the Lions to no points over the final three quarters. Jahmaine Rodriguez ran for 113 yards to lead the Nassau offense. William Porter had 93 yards on 15 carries. Defensively for Hudson Valley, David James and Eric Stephens had 11 tackles apiece.

The Hudson Valley Community College football team suffered a 25-10 loss to Dean College in Troy. Hudson Valley held an early 6-3 lead after freshman running back Reidrick Alceus carried the ball into the end zone from two yards away with 11:25 remaining in the second quarter. However, Dean sophomore quarterback Anthony Rodriguez hit sophomore wide receiver Calvin Belfon with touchdown passes from 30-yards away and 17-yards out on the Bulldogs next two possessions, which gave Dean a 16-6 lead at the break. Hudson Valley cut its deficit to 16-8 in the third quarter when a poor Dean snap went through the back of the end zone. Dean went up 22-10 with 13:07 remaining in the game when Rodriguez ran it in from six yards out. The extra point attempt was blocked and Hudson Valley's Gerard Atkinson ran it back for two points. The touchdown was set up after a bad snap by the Hudson Valley punt team that put Dean on the Vikings six yard line. Hudson Valley's offense was never really able to threaten Dean in the second half. The Vikings finished with just 120 yards of total offense. Alceus carried the ball 23 times for 99 yards

Hudson Valley Community College's football program was established in 1969. At the time, Hudson Valley was one of only two junior colleges in New York to sport a varsity football team. Since then, Hudson Valley has provided a collegiate starting point for hundreds of football players, more than 300 of whom have earned scholarships to four-year schools. Hudson Valley won its fifth Region III championship in the last six years in 2006. The Vikings also have won three of the last six Northeast Football Conference championship, including a thrilling 23-22 win over Erie Community College in the first-ever Northeast Football Conference Championship Game in 2004. Hudson Valley finished the 2003 season with an 8-2 record and was invited to The Graphic Edge Bowl in Cedar Falls, Iowa. Running back Emmanuel Marc was named the NJCAA Offensive Player of the Year after rushing for 2,038 yards and 18 touchdowns. Hudson Valley has accumulated 14 winning seasons since 1990 and is 179-138-6 since the program's inception in 1969. Several Hudson Valley football players have gone on to play professionally including Canadian Football League All-Pro Kelly Wiltshire who donned the green and white in 1992. Among the other pros who have worn Hudson Valley's green and white are Jay Kearney, Tim Brown and Cecil Doggette.

Hudson Valley Football

All three transferred to West Virginia after graduating from Hudson Valley in the late 1980s and early 1990s. They became part of the famed "Hudson Valley Pipeline," a nickname coined for the sharing of Hudson Valley's football talent with West Virginia. Kearney, who still holds several career receiving records at Hudson Valley, was drafted in the sixth round of the 1994 NFL Draft by the Green Bay Packers. He also played with the Philadelphia Eagles and Pittsburgh Steelers. Brown, who was nominated for the prestigious Butkus Award ­ an honor given to the nation's top NCAA Division I defensive player ­ played for the NFL's New Orleans Saints and the Arena Football League's Anaheim Piranhas and Albany Firebirds. And Doggette is currently one of the top defensive specialists in the AFL, playing for the Grand Rapids Rampage. In addition to the hundreds of individual success stories, the Vikings also have gotten the job done as a team over the years. In 1996, Hudson Valley posted its first undefeated season. The team went 8-0, and the streak was part of a dominant stretch that included 15 straight victories. The Vikings also competed in the Coca Cola Bowl in Iowa in 1980, dropping a 17-14 contest to Iowa Central.

Vikings Dealt Loss in Coca-Cola Bowl

Cedar Falls, Iowa ­ The lights dimmed inside the 16,400-seat UNI-Dome. Outside, the parking lots emptied and the buses huddled up next to the exit ramps. The third annual Coca-Cola Bowl was history, and Iowa Central Community College got the better of it for posterity's sake. As the Hudson Valley players pondered a 17-14 defeat Sunday evening, they asked themselves two questions particularly germane to the outcome: 1) How could they average 1.9 yards per carry rushing the football and expect to win? 2) How could they intercept three passes, recover three fumbles and still lose? Iowa Central, as conservative as the plains are flat, was reported to have known about as much concerning the forward pass as Pudge Heffelfinger. And when Hudson Valley quarterback Kelly Raber completed five straight aerials ­ one for a score ­ in the Vikings' opening two series, ICCC coach Paul Shupe paced the sidelines as if to say, "Hey, take the air out of that thing." But what Shupe and his 9-1 Tritons did was beat Hudson Valley (8-2) at its own game. Iowa Central passed for 176 yards, 23 better than HVCC. The hosts even scored a touchdown on a 56-yard pass play, surely the longest in school history. In some games this year, ICCC didn't even throw for 56 yards total. And it was a crucial third down completion for 12 yards with three minutes remaining that ultimately sealed HVCC's fate, running the clock out on the Vikings. In short, ICCC did just about everything it wasn't supposed to do and won. The Tritons lost their star fullback, Dave Bormann, to an ankle injury before halftime. He never returned. They committed six turnovers, roughly six more than they expected to when you stop to think that the most intricate play in their playbook was rumored to be the off-tackle run. They fumbled the ball twice in the second quarter inside the Hudson Valley two-yard line. "My God...we musta had 500 yards out there," said Shupe in the aftermath. "We just had too many turnovers. We felt that we shoulda had another one (TD) in there somewhere." The statistics will forever show that Hudson Valley was outplayed. Iowa Central outgained the Vikings, 424-235 in total net yards. But the HVCC gains were well-placed and timely, and in no way were they ever out of the game. The Vikings scored on their second possession. Raber scrambled out of trouble and found Eric Crocker on a 14-yard TD pass into the right corner with seven minutes left in the first quarter. George Temmerman's kick made it 7-0. 20

Iowa Central tied the score four minutes later on the 55yarder from Joel Zeller to Jerome Warren, and that's how it stood until the fourth quarter. ICCC's Al Bangston booted a 30-yard field goal for a 10-7 Triton lead, and then Bill Dolan's 22-yard run to paydirt, immediately following a key interception by Jeff Fleckenstein deep in HVCC territory, made it 17-7 with 13:48 left. Raber ran four yards for a touchdown with 4:38 to play, but HVCC never got the ball back. The most sustained drive that HVCC had all afternoon, marching 62 yards in 14 plays and consuming five minutes midway through the fourth period, resulted in a missed 30-yard field goal attempt by Temmerman. Point-wise, it was the difference. The Vikings had a first down at the ICCC 17 on that march, but two incomplete passes to Crocker stalled the attack. On the series before that, HVCC narrowly missed pulling off a reverse pitch-back to the quarterback and pass for a score. Victor Job pitched the ball back to Raber, who couldn't put enough zip on the ball to hit a wide-open Crocker behind the secondary coverage. "I thought our kids played well," HVCC coach Tom DePalma said in retrospect. "In my evaluation of the game, they scored 10 points in less than a two-minute span. They're a very opportunistic team. I felt that's the one thing we couldn't afford to do. We made some mistakes on offense that gave them good field position." "We had the size on them, and I think we wore them down," said Shupe. "We felt that maybe we had a little better personnel. Our kids moved the football and kept control of the ball. I said that if we don't get beat deep, we'll beat them eventually." The back-breaking mistake was the Fleckenstein interception. On HVCC's first play following the Iowa Central field goal to start the fourth quarter, Raber dropped back and lofted a pass on the right side to Crocker, who was curling back to await the ball. But Fleckenstein, who had been burned several times before by the same play, darted in front, picked off the pass at the HVCC 38 and returned it to the 22. "He just guessed right," said Crocker. Dolan ran for the deciding touchdown on the next play. Another crucial call came three minutes into the second quarter. With Iowa Central operating from its own 37 on second down, Zeller passed over the middle but was intercepted by Sam Cullis near midfield. After a late flag, the officials ruled that a HVCC defender had blocked below the waist prior to the catch and the ball was turned back over to the Tritons, who eventually drove to the HVCC two-yard line before fumbling. It was a well-played, well-coached, helmet jarring game that had its share of injuries. Raber suffered a slight concussion late in the game but showed his toughness and stayed to the end. HVCC defensive back Joey Trotta suffered a broken ankle and torn ligaments midway through the third quarter and was carried off on a stretcher. Vikings center Joe Curro of Albany was sidelined the entire second half with a leg injury. "When you got hit, you knew it," said HVCC fullback Wally Cunningham. "They were sending their ends in hard all the time," noted Doug Owens, HVCC halfback. The Tritons' Bormann was stung by HVCC linebacker Bob LaBombard on a goal line stand in the second quarter, fumbled; and was never the same, eventually going off for good after the next series.

The Graphic Edge Bowl

November 16, 2003

Vikings Fall in Triple-OT Thriller

CEDAR FALLS, IOWA ­ Hudson Valley Community College made its longest road trip in 23 years, only to face an even longer trip after a triple-overtime loss Sunday in The Graphic Edge Bowl. The Vikings' hopes for their first bowl game win came to an abrupt end when quarterback Ryan Gribulis fumbled the ball away on a crunching hit in the third overtime period, sealing a 29-23 win for Ellsworth Community College of Iowa. The gut-wrenching loss also brought a close to the recordbreaking JUCO career of Vikings tailback Emmanuel Marc. Marc went out in style, piling up 269 yards on 40 carries, and was reluctant to leave the field afterward, sharing a lengthy hug with teammate David Pacifico. "We worked so hard, and for it to end like this is the worst thing that could possibly happen," Marc said. "But I'm proud of

everybody on this team for the way we fought. I'll just have to let this one sink in for awhile." The game was a grueling, back and forth battle. Ellsworth's defense dominated early, and Hudson Valley trailed by two scores, 17-6, late in the third quarter. Marc bolted 39 yards on a fake reverse to pull the Vikings to within four, 17-13 with two minutes left in the third, and Gribulis engineered a 73-yard drive to give the Vikings their first lead, 20-17, with 3:16 left in the game. Ellsworth kicker David Lonie sent the game into overtime with a 36-yard field goal with 1:18 to play. After both sides came up empty in the first extra period, the Vikings drew first blood with a Dan Farrell field goal in the second OT. Lonie tied it again, though, on a 39-yarder, and the Panthers punched in the eventual game-winner on a one-yard plunge by quarterback Junior Alexis in the third OT. The game took place on the artificial turf of the University of Northern Iowa's UNI-Dome complex, and both teams were visibly exhausted by the warm conditions of the indoor game. "It was our first turf game and our first indoor game, but I'm sure Ellsworth was tired too," said Viking coach Bob Jojo. The Vikings 30 outgoing seniors had nothing to be ashamed of after leading the Vikings to its third eight-win season, Jojo said. "Everybody played their butts off," Jojo said. "Its disappointing to lose, but I'm not disappointed in the effort." The efforts of Marc earned the Spring Valley native a long entry in the Viking record book, including most career rushing yards (3,273) and most touchdowns (30). He led all junior college rushers this season, finishing with a school-record 2,038 yards, and should be scoring touchdowns for a major college program next fall. "If he's not a Division I running back, then I guess I don't know what Division I is," Jojo said.

Northeast Football Conference Championship Game

November 9, 2004

Final Minutes Prove Costly to Erie CC

The final two minutes and 14 seconds is a span of time the Erie Community College football team would rather forget. After seemingly seizing momentum and a 22-16 lead, the Kats just needed to run out the final 2:14. Instead, two fumbles in the final two minutes and an opportunistic Hudson Valley defense gave the visiting Vikings a 23-22 win and the inaugural Northeast Football Conference Championship in front of 2,000 at Jim Ball Stadium.

ECC to 7-4 overall, ending any hopes of a junior college bowl bid. A huge momentum swing in the Kats' favor, including scoring after recovering a fumbled punt and mounting an impressive red-zone defensive stand, gave them a 22-16 lead and possession of the ball with 2:14 to play. But on the first play from scrimmage, Charles Bigham fumbled and Hudson Valley's Malcolm King, Jr. returned the ball 29 yards for a touchdown. The extra point by Bobby Collett gave the Vikings a 23-22 lead. Another fumble, this time by Duane Griffin, ensured that Hudson Valley (8-3) would win its third straight game over ECC. Though the final two minutes are most painful, there were plenty of other miscues for the Kats. They missed two extra points ­ one on a blocked Jason Fralicker kick and one on a bad snap that turned into a failed two-point conversion attempt. Quarterback Adam Gaddie, who completed seven passes in the first half, did not have a completion in the second. And an apparent safety for the Kats off an amazing Fralicker punt was called back and ruled a touchback for Hudson Valley after officials ruled the Vikings' return man did not have possession of the ball in the end zone. "When I look in the mirror, I have to take it like a man and know that the other team just beat us," said ECC head coach Dennis Greene. "They were the better team today...From a coaching standpoint, we laid out a game plan and we had them, but the

players have to execute. We can't run, block, catch or tackle for them. They have to do their part. It was so close, but it just didn't come together today." It was a game with numerous momentum shifts coming off turnovers, runbacks, muffed punts and various wild plays. Hudson Valley led, 7-6, at halftime, but ECC took a 14-7 lead in the third quarter. The Vikings responded with their own run for a 16-14 lead but the Kats looked to seal the deal when Hudson Valley fumbled on a punt return and the Kats recovered at the

Vikings' 9. Griffin ran in for the touchdown on the next play and rushed for the two-point conversion and a 22-16 ECC lead. "We told our guys that there would be a lot of swings in this game," Hudson Valley coach Bob Jojo said. "We know that (ECC) is a good team with great coaches and that they'd come back. We just had to be patient and know that we could do the same thing." Griffin finished the game with 84 yards on 19 carries while Chris Wooten had 12 tackles and Ben Bayer added 11, including nine solo stops.

HVCC `For Real' in Grid Opener

The First Game

Reprinted from The Record (September 22, 1969) The Hudson Valley Vikings served notice that they are in the football wars "for real" Saturday when they galloped to a 35-0 victory over homestanding Plattsburgh State. The HVCC club, playing the first football game in the school's history, scored seven points in the second period and added 14-point efforts in both the third and fourth frames. Coach Joe Purello's Vikings broke into the scoring column in the second period on a 14-yard touchdown pass from quarterback George Patrick to Andy Crisman. HVCC blew Plattsburgh off the field in the second half by striking for four touchdowns.

End John Burke started the rout by blocking a punt and racing 18 yards to paydirt after recovering the loose ball. The Vikings tallied again five minutes later when Chuck Bracy burst through the Plattsburgh defense on a 42-yard scoring run. Early in the fourth period, Andy DiSanti, who kicked five straight extra points, got the Vikings' fourth score on a 23-yard scamper. Greg Tanner put the icing on the cake by scoring from a yard out to cap a 53-yard drive late in the final frame. Hudson Valley Plattsburgh 0 0 7 0 14 0 14 0 ­ 35 ­ 0

Hudson Valley Community College


Andrew J. Matonak, Ed.D., who has nearly 30 years of experience in higher education, is the sixth president in Hudson Valley Community College's history. He assumed the presidency on April 18, 2005. President Matonak, known as Drew to students, faculty and staff, came to Hudson Valley after serving as president of Northwest Iowa Community College in Sheldon, Iowa, for three years. He was chosen to lead Hudson Valley after a year-long presidential search process that actively involved faculty, staff, alumni, students and community members. Accomplishments during his tenure at Northwest Iowa include: the creation and implementation of a Strategic Plan; implementation of the Computerized Manufacturing Technology and Advanced Electrical degrees; expansion of the Nursing programs along with a new health addition; the transition to a new information system for the college; the passage of a levy vote to generate additional revenue for college operations with more than 82 percent approval ratings from the community; and accreditation from both the Higher Learning Commission and the State of Iowa. He also led a capital gifts campaign and increased the college's endowment. Prior to serving as Northwest Iowa's president, he was vice president for student development and an adjunct instructor at Lakeland Community College, which is located in Kirtland, Ohio, just outside of Cleveland. President Matonak's career has been shaped by his decision to attend Butler County Community College in Butler, Pennsylvania, after graduating high school: he wanted to give other students the same opportunity that was given to him. After earning an associate's degree in liberal arts from Butler, he received a bachelor's degree in sociology from the College of Wooster in Wooster, Ohio; a master's degree in student personnel administration from Michigan State University in East Lansing, Mich.; and a doctorate in higher education administration from the University at Houston, in Houston, Texas. He also has served as dean of student affairs at HorryGeorgetown Technical College, in Conway, S.C.; assistant dean of student affairs at the University of Houston; the admissions and records coordinator at Lee College in Baytown, Texas; and assistant dean of student development and coordinator of career development and placement at Eastern Iowa Community College District. President Matonak and his wife, Karen, have a daughter, Taylor.
