The Muhlenberg football team’s offense is available on DVD. And it comes with plenty of added features and bonuses.
The DVD is the senior trio of running back Terrence Dandridge, wide receiver Isaiah Vaughn and quarterback Dan Deighan. For the last three years, the three players have been the top threats on the Mule offense.
Yesterday at Dickinson, the D-V-D package was full of highlights. Dandridge rushed for 110 yards, Vaughn caught passes for 149 yards, and Deighan threw for 313 yards. It was the eighth time in program history that the Mules had a 100-yard rusher, 100-yard receiver and 300-yard passer in the same game. The others (listed in order of rusher-receiver-passer):
- 2008 vs. Wilkes: John DeLuca-Phil Cresta-Eric Santagato
- 2000 vs. Hartwick: Matt Bernardo-Joshua Carter-Michael McCabe
- 2000 vs. Johns Hopkins: Anthony Wolfsohn-Carter-McCabe
- 2000 vs. Dickinson: Wolfsohn-Alfredo Mercuri-McCabe
- 1998 vs. Grove City: Jason Brader-Carter-McCabe
- 1998 vs. Gettysburg: Brader-Kenyamo McFarlane-McCabe
- 1997 vs. Gettysburg: Brader-Kevin Cannon-George Fosdick
All three of the D-V-D players are climbing Muhlenberg’s all-time lists, and two are prominent in the Centennial Conference record book. Here’s a quick look:
With his 110 yards yesterday, Dandridge became the 11th player in CC history to rush for more than 3,000 yards. His total stands at 3,053 with two games remaining in the regular season, 214 yards away from cracking the top 10. He is third in Muhlenberg history in career rushing yards and also ranks fourth with 3,624 all-purpose yards. The 100-yard rushing game yesterday was the 14th of his career, which is tops among active CC players. “TD” has rushed for 31 career TDs, four away from second place on the Mules’ all-time list.
The “burner” in the D-V-D trio, Vaughn played on the defensive side as a freshman, so his impact on the all-time charts comes in only three seasons. He is in 11th place on Muhlenberg’s receiving yards list with 1,393 and needs 77 more to make the top 10. He also ranks 15th with 81 receptions for a career average of 17.2 yards per catch. Vaughn’s average of 20.9 yards per catch this season leads the CC. His touchdown catch yesterday covered 65 yards; he also caught a school-record 95-yard TD last and a 56-yard bomb in 2010. That makes him the first Mule receiver to catch a touchdown pass of at least 50 yards in three straight seasons since Alfredo Mercuri (2000-02).
Deighan moved close to a major career milestone yesterday with his first career 300-yard game. Deighan has 4,945 yards, good for third in Muhlenberg history and just 55 yards away from becoming the 15th CC quarterback to throw for 5,000 yards. Already the school record-holder for rushing yards by a quarterback, Deighan added 29 to his total yesterday, and with 1,254, he needs just 10 more to move into fifth place all-time in CC history. Deighan also moved into the CC’s top 10 in total offense yesterday with 6,199 yards; he is only the third CC QB to pass for 4,000 yards and rush for 1,200.
