WSU Sets New Records

WSU Sets New Records

January 20, 2011

The Wayne State Warriors are in a six-way tie tonight for second place in the GLIAC. Two players are being recognized for their efforts in last Saturday's win against Findlay.

Kenny Loney gets two picks in the victory over the Oilers. He also recovered a fumble to help earn the Novi Native Conference Defensive Player of the Week Honors. Meanwhile, a familiar face earns his sixth Offensive Player of the Week. Dave Leval recaps a record-setting performance.

Joique Bell rushes for 11 yards against Findlay, and another record in the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference.

"Joique Bell becomes the GLIAC's all-time leading rusher."

Bell shatters the mark set by Michigan Tech's Lee Marana. That's not all.

Bell races 26 yards in the second quarter, and gets into the endzone. Bell becomes just the 19th person in NCAA Division II history with at
least 420 career points.

Joique Bell/RB, Wayne State
"I always say this, I take none of the credit for it. It's a coaches scheme, it's my teammates working hard. I came out worked hard in the off season, weight room, conditioning. They have my respect because they see I work hard, which makes them want to work hard,
which is why we have a family oriented team."

Paul Winters/Head Coach, WSU
"You know, I thought he was pretty good, didn't know he's that good."

Bell finishes the game with 284 yards rushing as he now sits in 19th place in Division 2 history. He adds two more touchdowns that puts him in a tie for 14th place in the Division. But Bell will tell you more importantly, he helped his team win their game. At Wayne State University, Dave Leval, My TV 20 News at 10.

Bell is 28th in the NCAA Division II record books for career all-purpose
yards. He and Warriors travel to Ohio Saturday for their conference matchup with last-place Tiffin.
