Delaware Valley Set to Battle Franklin and Marshall in 2013 ECAC Division III Football Southeast Bowl Championship

CENTERVILLE, Mass. - For the first time since 1948, Delaware Valley College (7-3) and Franklin and Marshall College (6-4) will go head-to-head on the football field, this time in the 2013 ECAC Southeast Bowl Championship. Delaware Valley rolls into Saturday’s game with Franklin and Marshall fresh off a 50-28 win against rival Widener University in its regular season finale. The 50-point outburst was the highest scoring total for the Aggies this season, raising their season average to 32.5 points per game. The Diplomats closed out their regular season schedule by taking down
Gettysburg College 36-26.

“This is our 10th trip to the postseason in the last 11 years and our fifth ECAC game so it’s great for the program and we are excited for the opportunity to keep playing this year,” said Delaware Valley Head Coach Jim Clements. “F&M is a very quality opponent and it should be a great day and a great game in Doylestown.”

The Delaware Valley offense goes through senior running back Kyle Schuberth (Darby, Pa.), who has rushed for 1,240 yards this season and scored 14 touchdowns in only eight games. His 155.0 yards per game average ranks among the top-ten in all of NCAA Division III. Junior signal call Aaron Wilmer (Philadelphia, Pa.) has led the Aggie aerial attack, throwing for 1,943 yards to go along with 15 touchdown strikes. On the ground, Wilmer has 360 yards rushing and three touchdowns, giving him a team leading 18 total touchdowns. Classmate Rasheed Bailey (Philadelphia, Pa.) is Wilmer’s favorite target in 2013, catching 46 passes for 915 yards and eight scores. Sophomore defensive back Danny Wynee (Hatfield, Pa.) anchors the Delaware Valley defense, finishing the regular season with 101 total tackles and three tackles for a loss in ten games. Senior Chris Vega (Mountain Top, Pa.) finished the regular season of his final collegiate campaign with a team-high four interceptions.
