FINDLAY, OHIO > FOOTBALL
Eaton, a 6'1", 233-pound senior defensive end at Division III Oberlin, finished the season with a nation-leading 1.70 sacks per game and 17 total sacks, a school record. In a 30--6 win over Denison in October he had a season-high three sacks and had three tackles for loss to break the program's career TFL record. (He finished with 58.) The North Coast Athletic Conference defensive player of the year and an All-America, Eaton is also the Yeomen's alltime sacks (36½) leader.
MIAMI > TRACK AND FIELD
Rollins, a redshirt junior at Clemson, won the 60-meter hurdles at Clemson's Tiger Challenge with an NCAA-record time of 7.78, breaking the mark (set by Southern Cal's Ginnie Powell in 2006) by .06 of a second. Her victory helped Clemson's women's team retain its No. 1 ranking from the USTFCCCA. Rollins, who won a national title for the 60-meter hurdles in 2011, advanced to the 100 hurdles final at last summer's Olympic trials and finished sixth. She is a three-time All-America.

Nick, a senior guard at Lone Peak High, scored 13 points in a 67--42 win over American Fork High to become the Knights' alltime scoring leader, while Eric, a senior center, added a team-high 16 points.
