LSC Roundup 9-24

Glover leads Javelinas defense that shares glory - George Vondracek, Corpus Christi Caller Times 
KINGSVILLE — During the 2009 season, safety DeIra Glover was Texas A&M-Kingsville's leading tackler with 89 stops.

At the rate the senior is on to begin this season, Glover will be hard-pressed to equal or surpass that total. And that is just fine with him. The tackle totals and the entire defensive load has been spread across the board this season, and with astonishing results numbers-wise.

"That's how I like it. I was telling my dad not too long ago that I don't think I'm going to be able to get 89 tackles this year because we've got so many linebackers flying around, D-linemen flying around," Glover said, flashing a wide smile. "It's a good thing. He told me that if a safety is making 89 tackles the defense isn't doing that good. So if the linebackers are making all the tackles that's fine with me, as long as we're doing our jobs."

STATE COLLEGE FOOTBALL: Langston back from long layoff - Scott Munn, The Oklahoman
→It will not be the biggest football game in the state — but something will have to give Saturday in Ada. Southwestern State (0-3) and East Central (0-3) play a Lone Star Conference North division game at Norris Field.  Southwestern State was 1-10 last season, its lone victory a 14-13 decision against East Central. The host Tigers have not triumphed since October 2008, against Southwestern State.

→Central Oklahoma (1-2) will play Midwestern State (3-0, No. 10 NCAA II) at 7 p.m. Saturday in Edmond. UCO coach Tracy Holland said redshirt freshman Landon Greve has replaced senior Carter Whitson as the No. 2 quarterback behind Ethan Sharp.

Holland said Whitson will play receiver "because he's a good athlete who wants to be on the field.” Whitson has one catch for a 13-yard touchdown.

Greve is also the Bronchos' punter. He was selected Lone Star North division Special Teams Player of the Week after averaging 40 yards on seven punts during last Saturday's 42-41 overtime loss at Incarnate Word.

Midwestern State closes a six-match season-opening home stand by playing host to Texas-Permian Basin tonight. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
