Subject: 2011 Non-Player of the Year

With all due consideration to those Forum participants who suggested that Joe Rosatto be recognized as the non-player for 2011, I can’t put off timely recognition of Coach Jerry Schmidt for the job he has done over the past two years in turning Duquesne back into a winning program. From what I have heard in the rumor-mill, the administration from two years ago was not content with losing records. Evidently, neither was the coach.

Coach Schmidt has overcome the scholarship head start that the rest of the NEC had and has mastered the art of coaching and recruiting a higher level of athlete. He has done so with perhaps one of the smallest football fields on the FCS, Division 2, Division 3 or the high school level. He has done so in a town where the Steelers, Pirates, Penguins and Pitt get covered and Duquesne is an afterthought.

Most importantly, he has done so in an open, honest and ethically driven program in a town where Todd Graham had just finished running off to Arizona with his money and selective, lip service morality. Coach Schmidt coaches football. His record and statistics for this year’s team speak for themselves. He also makes the university proud that nice guys don’t have to finish last.

Perhaps we'll even get around to recognizing one of the excellent staff Coach Schmidt heads up like Joe Rosatto next year.

Congratulations and thanks to the 2011 Duquesne “Non-Player” of the Year.

See the Blog (link above) for the rest of the article.

Coffee, Outstanding selection in naming Coach Schmitt and similarly all other picks,except Fan of the Year,were great selections! Seriously, I am honored and undeserving and also want to emphasize that I loved the pick for past player of the year too! Thanks again, Jack
