Dating back to 2000, Rhody holds an 8-3 record - including last year's 28-25 win over nationally-ranked New Hampshire on Sept. 28, 2010. JOHNSON AT A LOSS Junior linebacker Doug Johnson leads CAA Football in tackles for loss, averaging 3.25 per game for a loss of 17 yards. Last time out at UMass, the Warwick, R.I. native made five TFL for a loss of 22 yards. Johnson also leads the conference in sacks, averaging 1.5 per game. DULANY DOING IT ON D Senior safety Darrell Dulany made a single-game career high 13 tackles at UMass. His previous high was nine, set the week before at Syracuse. He ranks third among all defensive players - and first among defensive backs - in tackles, averaging 11.0 per game. 1981 TEAM TO BE HONORED AT SEPT. 24 HOME OPENER VS. FORDHAM On Sept. 24, in conjunction with the home opener vs. Fordham at Meade Stadium, URI Athletics will honor the 1981 Rhody football team.

Greenhalgh Named to Allstate AFCA Good Works Team Junior Matt Greenhalgh is one of 22 football studentathletes nationally named to the 2011 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team. One of the most prestigious off-the field honors in college football for the past 20 years, the Good Works Team award has recognized a select group of college football players committed to making a difference in their communities. This past April, Greenhalgh donated his bone marrow to help save a life. "This has been the most gratifying thing I have ever done," Greenhalgh said at the time. "It just makes me feel so great to know that I have been able to help save someone's life." Fans will be able to vote for an Allstate AFCA Good Works Team® Captain by visiting ESPN.com and searching "Good Works." By viewing the player profiles on the website, fans can learn more about this year's team members and their selfless acts of kindness. The Team Captain and his fellow award recipients will be invited to New Orleans to take part in a special volunteer project leading up to the 2012 Allstate Sugar Bowl. A program record 132 players were nominated for the award this summer. From the nominations, a special voting panel, including former Allstate AFCA Good Works Team members and current college football broadcasters, selected 22 players from across the country to the team. Of the two 11-member teams, one comprises players competing in the NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision and the other is a combined team representing the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision, Divisions II, III, and the NAIA. The 2011 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team® voting panel includes several former Good Works Team members including former University of Pittsburgh quarterback Alex Van Pelt, former University of Georgia offensive lineman Matt Stinchcomb and former University of Notre Dame defensive lineman Grant Irons. ESPN personalities Lou Holtz, who also serves as the national ambassador for the program, and Rece Davis are also a part of the voting panel, joined by current AFCA president and Montana State University Head Coach Rob Ash, 1987 AFCA President and former Brigham Young University Head Coach LaVell Edwards and Allstate executive vice president Mark LaNeve.
HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLE Senior Anthony Baskerville has had an exceptional start to the 2011 season. The 5-11, 189 lb. wide receiver leads CAA Football in receiving yards per game, averaging 111.0. The Newark, N.J. native set a new single-game high with 134 yards at UMass on Sept. 17. TRAINER ANNOUNCES 2011 TEAM CAPTAINS Prior to the Sept. 10 season opener at Syracuse, head coach Joe Trainer announced his six team captains - offensive linemen Kyle Bogumil and Jason Foster, defensive back Darrell Dulany, quarterback Steve Probst, and defensive tackles Matt Rae and Willie McGinnis. "These six senior captains represent the best leadership we have had since I have been here and I am confident this group will effectively lead this team in 2011," Trainer said. "I couldn't be happier with our entire senior class and what they bring to this team."
2011 CAA FOOTBALL Predicted Order of Finish 1. William and Mary (12) 2. James Madison (4) 3. Delaware (2) 4. New Hampshire (2) 5. Massachusetts (1) 6. Richmond 7. Villanova 8. Rhode Island (1) 9. Maine 10. Old Dominion 11. Towson First-place votes in parentheses FUMBLE! The Rhode Island defense gained 13 fumbles in 2010, which ranked second in the CAA. Since Joe Trainer took over as head coach in 2009, the Rams have recovered a league-best 28 fumbles.
HAVE YOU HURD? Travis Hurd - a 2010 All-CAA Football First Teamer as a returner - scored his first rushing touchdown at Syracuse to open the season. Hurd had previously recorded a TD last year on a 75-yard kickoff return at Delaware (Oct. 16). BIG WILLIE STYLE Senior Willie McGinnis registered two tackles for a loss at Syracuse. He ranked second on the Rams in TFL last year, with 10.5 and now has 22.5 for his career.
WHAT A DIFFERENCE A YEAR MADE In 2009, opponents averaged nearly 40 points a game against Rhode Island (36.9). Last season, Rhody limited its opponents to just 24.4 points per game. GETTING IT DONE IN THE CLASSROOM This past year 13 players were selected to the CAA Football All-Academic team. In two years, the Rams have placed 23 players on the team - a number that ranks third in CAA Football during that period.
PROBST AND HURD SELECTED TO 2011 CAA FOOTBALL PRESEASON ALL-LEAGUE TEAM Senior quarterback Steve Probst and sophomore kick returner Travis Hurd were each selected to the 2011 CAA Football Preseason All-League Team. The selections were voted on by the league's 11 head coaches and media relations personnel. RAMS WELL REPRESENTED ON THE PHIL STEELE ALLCAA PRESEASON SQUAD Five Rhode Island football players were selected to the Phil Steele Preseason All-CAA Team as part of its 2011 FCS Preview. Senior offensive lineman Jason Foster and sophomore kick returner Travis Hurd were named First Team. Earning Second Team honors for Rhody were seniors Kyle Bogumil (offensive lineman), Willie McGinnis (defensive lineman), and Matt Rae (defensive lineman). ROAD ISLAND For the first time since 1982, URI started a season with back-to-back road games. That season, the Rams played their first three contests away from Meade Stadium.
RHODY SPECIAL TEAMS Last season, the URI special teams unit was instrumental in the Rams' five-win season. Under the direction of special teams coach Eddie Allen, URI ranked in the CAA's top five in four special teams categories. The Rams also held the league's top kickoff return average (23.8). It was Allen's special team unit that played a major role in the Rams' 17-14 victory over Villanova as it blocked a punt and returned it for the game-winning score over the 2009 National Champions. NEXT UP: BROWN (OCT. 1) Rhode Island plays Brown in the 97th meeting between the two schools. It is also the annual Governor's Cup game, which is now in its 30th year of being contested. The game can be heard live on WHJJ 920 AM, with Steve McDonald and Terry Lynch, while it is also being aired live locally on MyRI TV (Cox ch. 15/1015 HD).

THE LAST MEETING: FORDHAM 27, RHODE ISLAND 25 Sept. 11, 2010 - Jack Coffey Field - Bronx, N.Y.. Rhode Islands fourth quarter rally fell one play short as the Rams dropped a 27-25 decision to Fordham at Jack Coffey Field. Rhody trailed 27-23 with 2:02 to go in the game. The Rams opened their final drive of the game on the Fordham 48-yard line thanks to a 30-yard kickoff return by sophomore Brandon Johnson-Farrell. Johnson-Farrell would come up big again as he hauled in a 23-yard pass from junior quarterback Steve Probst on fourth down and 10.The Maryland native's reception gave the Rams a fresh set of downs on the Fordham 12-yard line, but the Rams were unable to come away with any points. Probst finished the game going 26-of-41. He also tied a career-high with three touchdown passes. Defensively for the Rams, junior Chris Edmond led the Rams in tackles (11) for the second straight week. Both teams were held scoreless in the first quarter, but Fordham broke the scoreless tie as quarterback Blake Wayne found wide receiver Jason Caldwell in the back corner of the endzone, which capped a nine play 69-yard drive. URI responded on its next offensive series as it drove 60 yards in six plays to even the score a seven apiece. Probst capped the drive as he found junior wide receiver Anthony Baskerville, who charged in from nine yards out. Rhody struck again less than two minutes later after redshirt freshman David Zocco collected his first career interception, which set up a 31-yard touchdown pass from Probst to sophomore Ty Bynum. No team would find the endzone for the final six minutes of the first half and Rhody took a 14-7 lead into the locker room. Fordham came out of the locker room and scored on its first offensive possession to tie the game at 14 apiece. The Rams marched 90 yards in six plays in a drive that spanned 1:52. Rhody responded once again as it went 73 yards in 11 plays to reclaim the lead 21-14 with 6:34 in the third quarter. Rhody added two more points thanks to a blocked punt by Jarrod Williams, which went out of the back side of the endzone, giving URI a 23-14 lead with 14:24 to go in the game. Fordham fought right back as it went on to score 13 unanswered points and took a 27-23 lead that it would not relinquish.

JOE TRAINER HEAD COACH | THIRd season 2010 CAA COACH OF THE YEAR Upon his arrival at the University of Rhode Island campus on February 27, 2009 a humbled yet engetic Joe Trainer promised Rhody football fans that he would make his players accountable in every phase of the game and not cut corners. During the 2010 campaign Trainer's promise began to take shape as he led the Rams to five wins - their most since 2001. In addition, Trainer guided the Rams to wins over three top 25 teams, including 2009 national champion Villanova. Following the year, seven URI players were named to the CAA Football all-conference team, while Trainer was named the league's Coach of the Year. Among Rhody's seven allconference selections, defensive end Victor Adesanya and kick returner Travis were each selected All-CAA First Team. In addition, Trainer's defense unit ranked third against the run in CAA Football, limiting opponents to just 126.4 yards per game and gained a league-best 13 fumbles. On the offensive side of the ball, the Rams featured CAA Football's fifth-best rushing attack (146.4). The 2010 season also saw Rhody defeat in-state rival Brown 27-24 in overtime as the Rams re-claimed the Governor's Cup Trophy. Now in his third season as head coach and fourth overall at URI, Trainer a veteran of nearly 20 years of college football coaching experience, has molded the Rams into a CAA Football contender for 2011. Off the field, Trainer places a strong emphasis on academics and community service. This past season in the classroom, 13 Rhode Island players earned Academic AllConference, including defensive lineman Matt Rae, who was named ESPN The Magazine/ CoSida District II All-Academic FirstTeam for the second-consecutive season. Rae also was one of 52 players from the Football Championship Subdivision, who were named to the Athletic Directors Association Academic All-Star Team. Since 2009, 22 of Trainer's players have earned Academic All-CAA Football honors a number that ranks third in the league during that period. In the community,Trainer has played an instrumental role in the team's involvement with the National Marrow Society. Since his first season as head coach in 2009,Trainer and the Rhody Football team have played host to an annual Bone Marrow Drive. The event, which takes place every spring on the URI campus, has not only raised awareness on the importance of donating Bone Marrow, but it has also seen the addition of over 700 new individuals to the National Registery. Prior to the Third Annual Rhody Football Bone Marrow Drive, junior center and Rhode Island native Matt Greenhalgh donated his bone marrow to an individual in need in an effort to save his life. In his first season as head coach, Trainer and his staff laid the ground work for future success. In 2009, he oversaw a defensive unit that ranked second in the CAA in turnover margin and gained a league-best 15 fumbles and picked off 11 passes. Offensively, the Rhody made tremendous strides down the stretch as it averaged 352.3 total yards of offense per game in its final three contests. Following the year, Rhody had three individuals earn CAA all-conference honors, including linebacker Rob Damon, who also earned Sports Network All-America accolades. Trainer was introduced as URI's 19th head coach in school history. He returned to Rhode Island after he joined the coaching staff at Bowling Green in December 2008 where he served as the Assistant Head Coach/Defensive Coordinator under two-time Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) Coach of the Year Dave Clawson. "I cannot tell you how honored and humbled I am to be the head coach at the University of Rhode Island," Trainer said at his introductory press conference. "It is truly an honor that I am going to embrace and I am going to make everyone associated with this program proud of the way we conduct ourselves from the head coach all the way down to the team manager."
"Coming back here in a different capacity as a head coach I believe we are going to do great things on the field and above all else we are going to do it the right way," Trainer explained. "We are not going to cut corners and we are going to make our kids accountable in every phase." During the 2008 season, Trainer's defensive unit forced URI opponents into 11 fumbles, which ranked in the top five of CAA Football. His defensive scheme also allowed linebacker Matt Hansen to finish second in the league in total tackles with 111, as he went on to earn All-CAA Football Second Team and Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) All-New England honors. Prior to his stint at Rhode Island, Trainer spent three seasons as head coach of Millersville University, a member of the powerhouse Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC), from 2005-2007. Before heading to Millersville, Trainer spent eight seasons at CAA-rival Villanova, starting out as linebackers coach before being promoted to defensive coordinator in 2005. During his tenure at Villanova, Trainer helped the Wildcats to two conference championships, two NCAA Playoff appearances (1997 and 2004) - including the national semifinals - two Lambert Cups, two wins over I-A schools (Rutgers andTemple), and five top 20 rankings in the final poll. Additionally, the Wildcats were nationally-ranked for a league-record 35 consecutive weeks and posted a then school-record 12 wins in 1997. Trainer's defensive scheme put the Wildcats as No. 1 in the Atlantic 10 in Total Defense in 2003 and 2004. Villanova finished seventh amongst NCAA Division I-AA schools in scoring defense (16.2 ppg) and 14th nationally in total defense (302 ypg allowed) in 2003. The following year in 2004, Trainer's defense yielded under 300 yards per game and was second in the A-10 in scoring defense (22.5 ppg). Trainer was also instrumental in helping Brian Hulea earn First Team Atlantic 10 honors in 2003 and 2004. Trainer spent the 1995 and 1996 season at the University of New Haven, where he worked as both linebackers coach and defensive coordinator. In his two seasons at New Haven, Trainer helped the Chargers win 17 games and earn a berth in the NCAA Division II playoffs. Under his tutelage New Haven finished ranked in the Top 20 in both seasons and his defense also established school records for fewest points allowed, points per game allowed, and turnover margin. Off the field, Trainer served as the academic coordinator. The Roslyn, Pa., native began his coaching career as a graduate assistant at Temple University in 1990. Two years later, Trainer took over as linebackers coach and special teams coordinator at Frostburg State University, where he also developed and oversaw the teams in-season strength and conditioning program. Following the 1992 season, he joined the coaching staff at Colgate University.While in Hamilton, he coached the outside linebackers and punt and kickoff teams. Trainer received his undergraduate degree in English from Dickinson College in 1990. He then went on to earn his masters degree from Temple University in 1992 and his M.S. in counseling and human relations from Villanova in 2004. Trainer and his wife Moreen are the proud parents of Liam (11), Dillon (9) and Keira (7). The Trainers reside in Saunderstown.
