LWC Football and renaming event is Saturday
By Christopher Webster
COLUMBIA, Ky - The No. 1-ranked Lindsey Wilson football team host No. 4-ranked Keiser (Fla.) at 1:30pmCT today, Saturday, September 11, 2021 in a top-5 showdown in Columbia.
Football will not be the only attraction on Saturday as Blue Raider Stadium will be renamed the Parnell Family Stadium at halftime. In addition to the renaming, Lindsey Wilson athletics is excited to bring back an annual tradition of Military Appreciation Day.
The renaming honors Drs. Allan and Bunny Parnell and family for their continued support of Lindsey Wilson College and its mission. Veterans and active military and their immediate families will be admitted for free to the game with their military identification as part of Military Appreciation Day.
This matchup will be the second time these teams have faced each other in program history. The teams met in last season's Semifinals of the NAIA Football Championship Series where the Blue Raiders displayed a dominant performance en route to a 38-14 victory.
Lindsey Wilson (1-0, 0-0 MSC) is coming off a 58-7 season-opening win over Webber International (Fla.). The Blue Raiders posted 508 total yards of offense, 221 yards in the air and 287 yards on the ground.
Cameron Dukes led the way for the Blue Raiders, throwing for 134 yards and two touchdowns. Dukes also added to the running game as he picked up 55 yards and another touchdown. On the ground, a trio of running backs in Darius Clark, Jaylen Boyd, and Kobe Belcher pushed the Blue Raiders ahead as they rushed for 76, 69, and 44 yards, respectively. Belcher found his way into the endzone twice while Clark scored a touchdown of his own.
Lindsey Wilson's defense tallied 46 total tackles and three turnovers. The defensive effort was led by Payton Doles who recorded eight total tackles, one of which was a tackle for loss. Eddie Davis and Cashawn Beasley each recorded an interception while Brandon Fields recovered a fumble.
The Seahawks (1-0, 0-0 MSC) travel to Blue Raider Stadium after beating Cumberland (Tenn.) 45-6. Keiser totaled 591 offensive yards compared to the Phoenix's 217.
Keiser's offense is led by quarterback Jack Strouse who threw for 353 yards and four touchdowns in the victory over Cumberland while picking up another touchdown with his legs. A quartet of Seahawks receivers in Traionn Jones, Carlos Silencieux, Jerson Jacques, and Caleb Walls caught a touchdown pass from Strouse. On the ground, Marques Burgess led the team with 88 yards and Johnathan Mosely added a rushing touchdown.
Defensively, Keiser tallied 91 total tackles. Byron Fraley guided the defense with 10 total tackles and a pass breakup. Jaelin Willis recorded an interception and a forced fumble while Wendol Philord recorded an interception of his own.
Live video and stats will be available. Kickoff is scheduled for 1:30pmCT at Parnell Family Stadium.
