COLLEGE REPORT: Former North standout Goatee making strides at VU


TERRE HAUTE — • Lough promoted in GSU shakeup – Trent Miles’ first Georgia State team football team has started the season at 0-3, and he appears to be in a situation similar to that when he took over Indiana State’s program.

In its first year at the FBS level, the Panthers lost their opener 31-21 to Samford, lost their second game 42-14 to Chattanooga and were defeated 41-7 last Saturday at West Virginia.

Following the Chattanooga game, in which GSU rushed for just 30 yards, Miles reassigned running backs coach Tony Tiller to another position within the athletic department. Replacing Tiller was Brock Lough, the former Terre Haute South and ISU standout who was in his first year as a graduate assistant coach.

“We had some young guys in their second college football game and they were learning how to handle it,” Miles said after the Chattanooga game. “And then [there were] some guys that have been around and haven’t had success who are probably more fragile than the young guys.”

Two starting offensive linemen left the team after the Chattanooga game.

 “We are still trying to get the right guys on the field who give great effort and play hard at all times,” he said. “To play for us, you have to put it on the line every play, every down.”

Other familiar faces on the GSU staff are graduate assistants Ronnie Fouch and Johnny Towalid, who both starred under Miles at ISU.

Miles is contemplating a quarterback change among many personnel changes for this week’s game against Jacksonville State.

 “It could be guys that are already on the team,” he said of those who might find their roles increased. “It could be a walk-on here or there who is giving great effort.”

• Etling tourney MVP — DePauw sophomore Mary Kate Etling was named the most valuable player as the Tigers went 4-0 last weekend to win their own invitational tournament.

The Terre Haute North grad had 10 kills and four block-assists in a win over Marietta, nine kills, two digs and three block-assists against Olivet, six kills, one dig and three block assists against Trine and 11 kills, five digs and two block-assists against Rose-Hulman.
