The awards dinner will be broadcast on ESPN3.

Below are Coach Girardi’s comments at the press conference, provided by Caption Northwest, Inc.

BONNIE BERNSTEIN: Frank Girardi, 1972-2007 at Lycoming, 257 victories, won 72 percent of his games, one of only 17 coaches on any level -- any level -- to reach 250 wins at one school. Coach, Coach Bowes was talking about the importance of having an eye for talent, hiring coaches around who can complement you. But you think about that: 250 wins at one school, 29 straight winning seasons. What's the formula? What really worked? If you had a bunch of young, aspiring coaches sitting here in front of you, what would you -- how would you guide them?

Warriors Fall to No. 23 Stevenson on Senior Day

Senior Blake Bowman (Valley View, Pa./Tri-Valley) rushed
10 times for 41 yards in the game, becoming the
fifth player in school history to post 2,500 yards in a career
WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. – In his final game with the Lycoming College football team, senior Chase Whiteman (Gettysburg, Pa./Gettysburg Area) completed 26-of-40 passing for a season-high 260 yards and he rushed for 27 more yards and a touchdown, but No. 23 Stevenson broke open a four-point game with two third-quarter touchdowns to post a 28-10 Middle Atlantic Conference win at the Shangraw Athletic Complex on Saturday, Nov. 12.

Senior Blake Bowman (Valley View, Pa./Tri-Valley) rushed 10 times for 41 yards in the game, becoming the fifth player in school history to post 2,500 yards in a career and holding off Lebanon Valley’s Brandon Irving to become the first player in school history to lead the MAC in rushing two years in a row, averaging 93.6 yards per game to Irving’s 89.6.

Stevenson (9-1 overall, 8-1 MAC) claimed its first MAC title outright with the win in just its sixth year of competition, as Devonte Williams rushed 19 times for 108 yards and a touchdown to lead the offense and the defense used two second-half interceptions to keep Lycoming (3-7 overall, 2-7 MAC) from mounting an upset bid.
