Jacquay headlines Cougars’ Hall class


– Cory Jacquay, the NAIA football player of the year in 2004, heads a group of four former Saint Francis athletes who will be inducted into the university’s Athletic Hall of Fame this fall.

Joining Jacquay will be baseball player Josh Widman, cross country and track and field standout Casey Shafer and former golfer Andy Martin.

Jacquay, who attended New Haven, set the USF single-season record with 1,980 all-purpose yards in 2004.

He tied a record with 20 touchdowns, and set three career records with 6,772 all purpose yards, 376 points scored and 61 touchdowns.

In four seasons, Widman, from Findlay, Ohio, set five USF career records: RBI (114), hits (189), runs scored (110), doubles (41) and at-bats (570). He also set a single-season record for RBI with 48 in 53 games.

Shafer remains USF’s only NAIA Cross Country National Championship Meet qualifier, a feat he accomplished in 2001 as a senior. He still has USF’s top 10 times in the 1,500-meter run, the top eight times in the 5,000-meter run and the top six times in the 10,000-meter run.

Martin, who attended Tippecanoe Valley, finished fourth as a senior in the Mid-Central College Conference tournament.

The Alumni and Athletic Hall of Fame awards celebration will be at the USF North Campus at 7 p.m. Oct. 11.
