Corey Bettenbrock (Eastwood) began his college football career Saturday as his 16th-ranked Division III Ohio Northern University Polar Bears opened the season under fifth-year head coach Dean Paul Saturday, September 13 at eighth-ranked North Central (Ill.).

Bettenbrock is a freshman majoring in manufacturing technology at ONU and is the son of Beth McCowin and Thomas Bettenbrock, both of Pemberville.

Ohio Northern posted a 7-3 record last year and completed its 12th consecutive upper-division finish in the 10-team Ohio Athletic Conference, ending the season in third place.

Former Eastwood teammate Eric Rutherford is a freshman safety for Baldwin-Wallace, which plays games at the newly-named Tressel Field (after Ohio State football coach and B-W alum Jim Tressel) at The George Finnie Stadium. Rutherford was among 67 freshman out of 154 players on the B-W preseason roster.

Sophomore defensive back Nick Clemons (Oak Harbor) returns to join Rutherford at B-W.

B-W opened its season at Franklin (Ind.) College and on Sept. 20, will host John Carroll University in the Cuyahoga Gold Bowl Trophy Game.

Baldwin-Wallace has one of the winningest programs in college football history. The Yellow Jackets have an all-time record of 520-295-30 in their 101-year history on the gridiron. B-W has had 41 winning seasons in the past 42 years, including a 39-year streak from 1967-2005.
