QB Vernon Adams was 10-11 with 2 touchdown passes on the Eagles first two possessions, and Eastern led 14-6. From that point on, EWU was only able to muster one more touchdown and little else. The Rockets controlled the contest with their rushing game, and Toledo came out on top, 33-21. The Eagles fall to 2-1 on the season going into their bye week next week.

Paul Sorensen talked to Coach Beau Baldwin, OL Steven Forgette and LB Ronnie Hamlin after the game.

South Allegheny (McKeesport, Pa.) High’s Audra Lewis wears her majorette uniform under her football uniform, serves as the team’s kicker for two quarters, takes off her pads, twirls her baton during the break and then puts it back on for the second half.

“She’s like Superman, changing those outfits,” South Allegheny football coach Pat Monroe told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette in a story on Lewis.

Also a three-time All-Section soccer star for the Gladiators, Lewis served as the backup kicker on a South Allegheny squad that finished 7-3 last season. That made pulling double duty as a majorette during halftime a bit easier during her junior year.

Now a senior, she earned the starting job this fall and scored the only points on a 31-yard field goal in the Gladiators’ 31-3 opening night loss to Pittsburgh’s Seton La Salle High.

“Last year, I think she got her feet wet a little just coming out for the team,” Monroe told the Post-Gazette. “But she worked hard in the offseason and she’s a tremendous athlete. She’s a tremendous soccer player, and her kicking is not [just] a novelty by any stretch of the imagination. I have faith in her, and the kids respect her.”

Recently, a Pennsylvania judge gave the go-ahead for the state’s athletic association to ban boys from playing girls’ sports, but Lewis is proving girls can hold their own.

Dennis Patchin talked to the Idaho Vandals head coach, Paul Petrino, about the loss to Wyoming and their upcoming home game.
