You may have not noticed a group of Jersey football players who have come together to put Rowan University in the NCAA Division III football playoffs for the first time since 2006.  Time to recognize this team!

The Glassboro school has had quite the reputation as a small college football power back in the 90s under the guidance of K.C. Keeler.  Between 1993 and 1999, the Profs went to the Division III title game an amazing 5 times but walked away win-less for their efforts.

Jay Accorsi was part of Keeler’s coaching staff during this time, and eventually replaced him when K.C. left for the University of Delaware in 2002.  His 11 season run has seen the Profs post a 87-31 record (which is an eye-popping 74% winning percentage), and now preparing for Saturday’s trip to Maryland’s Shore to play Salisbury (kickoff @ Noon).

Rowan enters the 32-team playoff field ranked #25 in the country at D-3.  The team’s 7-2 record is solid – their only losses came from Division II Merrimack (who went 6-4 at the higher division), and Cortland (who won the NJAC title and went 8-1).

The team’s roster is entirely of talent from The Garden State, including 17 players who played their high school ball in the Cape-Atlantic League.

The Profs offense is guided by QB Louie Bianchini (West Long Branch native), who has thrown 20 Touchdowns this season to go along with his over 1700 yards passing (and completing 63.4% of his passes).  One of Louie’s favorite targets is Mullica Hill’s own Ed Eisenhart, who leads the team with his 27 catches, 473 yards (17.5 yards per catch) and 9 touchdowns.

Atlantic City native Keith Corcoran is the workhorse of the backfield.  The St. Joseph’s of Hammonton grad has carried the ball a team high 122 times in 2012, racking up about 500 yards rushing and 5 touchdowns.  Matt Dortch is leading the Profs in 2012 with almost 550 rushing yards.

Defensively, Darren Dungee anchors from his linebacker spot.  The 6-2, 220-pound freshman leads Rowan this year with 87 total tackles.

A win on Saturday will put Rowan with a potential match-up with Widener (out of West Chester, PA) in the Round of 16.

Good Luck to the Profs, and congrats on a successful season so far!
