Things to see
Andrericks season

Happy to have you back Dante Hendricks! Sycamores wide receiver returned for his sixth year at the Indiana State Blue & White after an injury-cut campaign in the fall of 2021. The Florence, Kentucky native suffered a mid-season injury on his way to finishing the game with the team’s 42 best passes for 447 yards, while adding Three touchdowns in six games. Hendrix would have finished the 2021 season among the MVFC leaders in receiving yards per game (74.5), while 10.6 yards per game would have also put him among the best teams in the valley.

Hendrix was a recipient for the 2019 First Team All-MVFC in his last full season among the league leaders in yards (653) and receptions (51). He leads a strong receiving team and has set an Indiana state record by posting at least one catch in 26 consecutive games. He will likely be targeted early and often throughout the 2022 season as Sycamores will run out of a new key midfielder at the helm for the eighth consecutive season.

Katun’s return
Dakota Caton He suffered a pre-season injury last year that knocked the youngster out of the Sycamores equation in 2021. After a year of recovery and after coming back through practices in the spring and summer months, the Sullivan, Indiana native is finally ready to build a solid campaign for 2019 Catton’s open field ability and speed earned First Team All-MVFC recognition in his final season on the field as the wide receiver led the conference with 25.5 yards per return, while placing 20th nationally in the return yard average. He finished third on the team in trolling counts (21) and added 221 yards in 2019 and was set to play a big role in the ISU offense in 2021 prior to injury.

Caton’s ability to be dangerous to peripherals continues to make him dangerous as Sycamores have proven their willingness to move players around the field. His ability to create play will make him a key player in the short-passing game as Sycamores continues to develop under the offensive coordinator for the first year. Mike Bath.

narrow fight

Gone are the narrow end to do it all Zach Larkin. The former Sycamore finished between the captains in receptions (29) and receiving yards (312), while he finished the captain’s tie with three touchdowns. The 6-5 athlete leaves a huge mid-court gap in the sycamore pass, but Indiana State brought back multiple experienced players this year including Henry WoodcockAnd the Tice FerrellAnd the Lance Race.

Woodcock and Ferrell are more established options as both players see the action in all 11 games of the 2021 season with the duo combined for 11 catches and 74 yards. Reese wasn’t on the field last season, but the Marshall, Illinois native was previously the first all-conference team and all-district pick from his high school days and brings a 6-4, 250-pound tire to the field. In addition to the trio, the sycamore also welcomes new students Kai Rios And the Rocco Siuka into the mix with the expectation of both getting additional iterations as fall camp progresses into the start of the regular season.

The entire tight final set adds volume to the field that will be key in Missouri Valley Football. All five active players included in the center pool are standing at least 6-3 and averaging 238 pounds as Sycamores will be using groups that can feature multiple tight ends this year.

Viewing numbers

  • 26Dante Hendricks Looking to build on an already strong legacy here in Indiana. The Florence, Kentucky native will try to continue extending his ISU record in 26 consecutive games with a reception. He broke the previous mark set by Robert Tonian Jr (21, 2015-16) last season.
  • 75 – Indiana’s receiving forces have experience, but the ISU took a hit after they left Roentries Morgan (39), Fazione McClurg (36) and Zach Larkin (29) as Sycamore returned only 75 from 206 receptions from last season. With a new offensive system in place and a large number of players expected to line up across the field, a new offensive coordinator Mike Bath He will be looking for new weapons to fill the gaps before the 2022 season.
  • 177.5 – Indiana’s passing numbers are up from the 2019 season, as Sycamore scored 1,952 yards in the 2021 campaign. ISU scored at least 200 yards in four different games last season, including the 243-yard season in the season’s final win over Illinois State .
  • 140 and 1,781Dante Hendricks He enters the 2022 season sitting 56 catches and 604 yards away from the all-time Indiana State career, earning the mark set by Sam Logan (196 catches, 2,385 yards, 2003-2006). During his three active seasons with Sycamores, Hendrix averaged 593.7 yards and 47 catches per season, but those numbers include lining up in just six games in 2021 due to injury (42 catches, 447 yards). With yet another typical season, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Hendrix on top of the all-time list this year.
