Season 2's Graduating Seniors (continued)

All hail the graduating seniors from the defensive squad and special teams.

N. Frank (RE #48). Practice squad RE, special-teamer and back-up to starter K. Miller (RE #62). 4 tackles, 1 forced fumble. Being on the Penguins afforded him the time to maintain the Nicholas Frank Public Library as well as attend Milwaukee College on scholarship.

R. Umali (ROLB #50). 45 tackles, 1 sack, 1 INT, 1 forced fumble, 1 fumble recovered, 9 pass deflects. My dad, as well as my mom, leaves the team and heads immediately to semi-retirement.

V. Valiant (ROLB #54). 18 tackles, 1 forced fumble, 3 pass deflects. My dad's back-up saw some quality play time due to my dad's injuries. At the other end of life's arc from my dad, Valiant should now be in junior high.

S. Umali (MLB #43). 55 tackles, 1 sack, 1 INT, 1 forced fumble, 1 pass deflect. My mom led the team in tackles with 38 during Season 1. She split MLB duties with V. Bushell (MLB #42) during Season 2. She one-ups my dad by graduating into full-retirement.

D. Smith (CB #21). 22 tackles, 1 sack, 1 pass deflect. 4th on the corner back depth-chart, D. Smith was dependable off the bench. He stays in the field of education.

E. Ziegeweid (FS #34). 64 tackles, 10 INT, 1 forced fumble, 1 fumble recovered, 21 pass deflects. Ziegeweid led the team in INT in the first season. His risky strategy of mostly going for the INT instead of just playing it safe and going for the deflect remains a core tenet of our secondary.

A. Melchior (SS #24). Back-up to K. Anderson (SS #26), she talled 17 tackles in a couple of years. She leaves the team to assume a full-time managerial position in an arts organization.

S. Goodman (K# 30). 26-33 (78%) field-goals, longest: 45-yards. 76-76 extra-points. Perfect field-goal kicker (14 for 14) in his senior year, Goodman, a philosophy major, leaves school to work at a local law firm.
