Studebaker on Chiefs' active roster; Ittersagen on Titans' practice squad

More news about: Wheaton (Ill.)

Two Wheaton alumni completed their participation in the NFL preseason camps and games last week and are preparing for the regular season with their respective teams. Linebacker Andy Studebaker was placed on the Kansas City Chiefs' 53-man roster to start the season for the second consecutive year. Cornerback Pete Ittersagen made the eight-man practice squad for the Tennessee Titans after spending much of the preseason camp with the team.

Studebaker is entering his third season with the Chiefs after being picked up by Kansas City off of the Philadelphia Eagles’ practice squad in 2008. He made 10 total tackles in the 2010 preseason, including six solo stops. He also recorded two sacks in the preseason opener against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Ittersagen joins the Titans' practice squad after signing as an undrafted free agent with the NFL's Jacksonville Jaguars last April. He has also spent time with the Indianapolis Colts, New Orleans Saints and Toronto Argonauts of the CFL. Ittersagen played in two preseason games for the Titans in 2010, before suffering an injury early in the second game. The former Thunder All-American made four solo tackles in his preseason action with Tennesse.

Studebaker graduated from Wheaton in May of 2008 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Applied Health Science. In four seasons with the Thunder, he tallied 111 total tackles, with 50-1/2 tackles for lost yardage (-292 yards), including 30 quarterback sacks. As a junior in 2006 he was selected as the College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin (CCIW) Defensive Player of the Year and was tabbed as a First Team All-American and the North Region Defensive Player of the Year by D3Football.com. He also earned Second Team All-American honors on the 2006 AP Little All-American team and was a Football Gazette Division III All-American. In that junior campaign he led the CCIW and Division III with 17-1/2 (-142 yards) quarterback sacks and was also the league leader in tackles for lost yardage with 25-1/2 (-161 yards). His 17-1/2 sacks tied the school record for sacks in a single season, and were the most of any player at any NCAA level in 2006.

A December 2008 graduate of Wheaton, Ittersagen is a three-time All-American for the Thunder with 60 career passes defended, which is fifth all-time in Division III history in the category and his five career punt returns for a touchdown established a new school record and his nine career touchdown returns (five punt, three interception and one kick) also set a Wheaton College record. He is the program’s all-time leader in punt return yardage with 65 punts returns for 1,075 yards (16.5 YPR). The four-time All-Conference selection at cornerback recorded 252 career tackles, with 189 solo stops.
