Metro roundup: Rose-Hulman football will travel to Spain for game

TERRE HAUTE — The Rose-Hulman football team will head to Barcelona on June 2 to tour Spain with Global Football and take on an American football club, the Reus Imperials, at the Municipal de la Pastoreta on June 7.

Rose’s Jeff Sokol, the 2013 Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference (HCAC) Coach of the Year, has traveled previously with Global Football, serving as a member of the Team Stars & Stripes coaching staff at the Tazón de Estrellas in Mexico. He also led the Engineers to a 35-34 win over the Austrian national team in the Charity Bowl when traveling to Vienna with Global Football in 2011.

Rose-Hulman is coming off a successful season, having won its first conference title since 1988 under Sokol’s leadership. The Engineers shared HCAC championship honors with nationally ranked Franklin by finishing 7-1 during the conference schedule.

From their home stadium, the Municipal de la Pastoreta, Spanish opponents the Reus Imperials have reached the final of the Serie B National League of American Football competition where they will face the Mallorca Voltors. The Imperials beat Barbera Rookies 20-0 in the quarterfinals and Las Rozas Black Demons 20-7 in the semifinals.

“The international experiences have become a huge part of the Rose-Hulman football program,” Sokol said. “Traveling to Barcelona is a wonderful opportunity for our guys, and they are looking forward to experiencing all the wonderful things that Spain has to offer. We also look forward to playing a competitive football game.”

In his three years at Rose, Sokol has led the Engineers to one HCAC championship (2013) and one conference runner-up finish (2011). His career record stands at 17-7 in HCAC action.

In 2013, Rose-Hulman won seven of eight conference games with a season for the ages. The Engineers completed their largest in-game rally since 1988 by turning a 20-0 deficit into a 34-26 victory at Bluffton University. The offensive unit recorded the second-most points (322) and second-most yards (4,150) in school history. First-year starting quarterback Ryan Landwehr was selected for the Tazón de Estrellas and defensive tackle Dean Griffing joined punter Eric Schaible at the DIII Senior Classic.

After arriving in Spain, the traveling Rose-Hulman party will begin their overseas tour by discovering brilliant Barcelona, a city of graceful Gothic churches, wrought-iron balconies and wide, grand avenues filled with outdoor cafés. They will visit Parque Güell, a garden complex with architectural elements designed by the Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí and see Montjuïc Hill, where the 1992 Summer Olympic Games took place. The group will enjoy a Tapas dinner and a Flamenco show, and take an excursion to Montserrat, with its mountain setting providing a dramatic backdrop for the Ninth Century monastery whose basilica houses the Black Virgin Mary of Montserrat.

They will take a trip to Tarragona, a city with thousands of years of history, and have a free day in Salou to relax and enjoy the beach before rounding off the trip with an evening cruise along the Costa Dorada coast in a private catamaran.
