More news about: Hobart

Ten members of the Hobart College football team were recognized by the Statesmen Athletic Association and the Hobart Athletics Department at the annual Block H Dinner on April 25.

Junior offensive lineman Brendan Hatlee, senior offensive lineman Sean Kluber, junior inside linebacker Reggie Robinson, senior free safety John Kelliher, junior cornerbackDrake Woodard, sophomore wide receiver Junior Woodard, junior wide receiver Garth Muratori, senior outside linebacker Kyle O'Laughlin, first-year running back Steven Webb, and first-year strong safety Devin Worthington were all honored. 

Muratori received the Bill Middleton Memorial Football Award, which goes to the team's most valuable offensive performer. He earned Liberty League honorable mention and was named the conference Offensive Performer of the Week once this season. Muratori led the team in receiving touchdowns (7), ranked second in yards per catch (15.8), third in receiving yards (569), and fourth in receptions per game (4.0), receiving yards per game (63.2), and total touchdowns. He had a season-high 129 receiving yards and three touchdowns at Merchant Marine and made a season-high 10 catches for 116 yards and a TD against Rochester.

The Bob Toner Defensive MVP Award was presented to O'Laughlin. A three-time All-Liberty League selection, including second team honors in 2009, he was second on the team and fourth in the conference in tackles with 81. A 2010 team captain, O'Laughlin hit double figures in stops five times this season. He logged 10 tackles and a forced fumble against WPI and recorded 11 tackles against Union. O'Laughlin notched a career-high matching 12 tackles in his final game against Rochester. In his four years as a Statesman, he played in 37 games, recorded 215 tackles, four interceptions, and five forced fumbles.

The Robert L. Cullen Memorial Football Award went to Junior Woodard. An All-Liberty League First Team return specialist and all-league second team wide receiver, he led the conference in punt return average (9.9 yds./ret). Woodard returned six punts for 70 yards against Dickinson, including his season-long of 27 yards. As a receiver, he finished third in the conference with 4.56 receptions per game. Woodard caught 41 passes for 570 yards and three touchdowns. He tallied a season-high seven catches against St. John Fisher. After catching five passes for 182 yards and two touchdowns against Union, Woodard earned a spot on the D3football.com Team of the Week. 

The Tyron Football Award was presented to Hatlee, as the team's outstanding linesman. Hatlee, a unanimous first team All-Liberty League selection, played a major role in the Hobart offense that led the league in scoring (31.3), passing (233.7 yds/g), and total offense (378.8 yds/g). He also helped the Statesmen rush for 145.1 yards per contest, which ranked third in the Liberty League. Hatlee was named to the D3football.com Team of the Week after Hobart produced a season-high 648 yards of offense against Union without allowing a sack.

A team captain, Kluber was presented with the Mike Roberti '90 Memorial Award for character, outstanding sportsmanship, and the positive influence he had on his teammates. He was named to the D3football.com Team of the Week after helping Hobart rush for 243 yards against Union. Kluber was a major component of the Statesmen offensive line that paved the way for Hobart to finish first in the Liberty League in total offense. He finished his Statesman career having played in 26 games.

The Shirley A. Zornow '47 Memorial Award went to Robinson for his significant improvement, untiring perseverance, and will to win. Another first team All-Liberty League honoree, Robinson led Hobart and finished third in the conference with 82 tackles. He also had eight tackles for loss, forced two fumbles, and recorded three interceptions. Robinson notched at least five tackles in every game. He was named Liberty League Defensive Performer of the Week after logging 10 tackles and a forced fumble against Merchant Marine and again after posting eight tackles, a forced fumble, and an interception against WPI. Robinson registered double-digit tackles five times, including a season-high 12 against Rochester.

Kelliher was given the Michael Theodore Sliver '39 Award for superior scholarship, sportsmanship, and perseverance. A two-time All-Liberty League second team pick and team captain for the 2010 season, he was sixth on the team with 39 tackles. Kelliher logged a season-high nine in the finale against Rochester to go along with 1.5 tackles for loss and a fumble recovery. He recorded seven tackles and two interceptions against WPI. In 35 career games, he registered 90 tackles and four interceptions.

The Harter Family award was presented to Drake Woodard for his outstanding love of the game and desire to win. The three-time unanimous All-Liberty League first team selection was fourth on the team with 40 tackles. He made at least two stops in every game, including a season-high nine against Carnegie Mellon. Woodard registered three tackles for a loss this season, including one in each of the last two games. He recovered a fumble against Union, intercepted a pass against St. Lawrence, and returned a blocked punt for a touchdown against Dickinson. 

Webb and Worthington shared the Rookie Award for Football. Worthington, the 2010 Liberty League Rookie of the Year, also earned a spot on the all-league first team, and garnered D3football.com All East Region first team honors. He led the Liberty League in sacks (10) and tackles for loss (19). Worthington recorded at least three stops in every game, including a season-high 12 in the win over Union. He also blocked two kicks. Worthington scored his first collegiate touchdown on a 53-yard fumble recovery against WPI. He was named the Liberty League Defensive Performer of the Week three times, the Liberty League Rookie of the Week three times, and twice earned a spot on the D3football.com Team of the Week.

Webb, an All-Liberty League first team honoree, also made a major impact for the Statesmen as a first-year. He rushed for 783 yards in nine games, averaging a league-high 5.5 yards per carry and scoring 14 rushing touchdowns. Webb also caught eight passes for 165 yards and a touchdown. He earned league weekly honors three times this fall. Against St. John Fisher, Webb became the first Hobart football player to have 100 yards rushing and receiving in the same game. He also averaged 22 yards per kickoff return, including a 90-yard touchdown return in the season opener against Dickinson. Webb led the league in scoring, finding the end zone six more times than any other player in the conference.

Hobart finished the season with a 5-4 record, including a 3-3 mark in the Liberty League.
