Transcript DOMINATING PRESENCE Linebacker Wayne Rogers exemplifies the best of Cougar athletics in 2000 By Tom Carpenter Senior Wayne Rogers personified the heart and soul of the Cougar defense in the 2000 campaign. Rogers played with a wild abandon and enthusiasm that inspired the entire football team. The All-Conference USA linebacker led the conference in total tackles with 134. Rogers created chaos behind the opponents line of scrimmage every game. The feisty player ranked sixth in C- USA in sacks with 10 and led the league with 26 tackles behind the line of scrimmage for a minus-128 years. Piling on those kinds of numbers gar- nerd the Waco native recognition. He earned C-USA Defensive Player of the Week honors on two consecutive weeks — Oct. 21 and 28. The Cougar spitfire earned the C-USA Co-Defensive Player of the Year award. He was the first defensive player to win a conference player of the year award since Wilson Whitley in 1976. Rogers stood head and shoulders above a team caught in the turmoil of transition. He punished opposing runners with smash-mouth tackles and avoided blockers with his surprising speed and agility to pressure opposing quarterbacks. Rogers played with the same ferocity and intensity whether the Cougars were winning or losing. Steady as a rock Senior linebacker Wayne Rogers led the Cougars in tackles, but he also led them in a "never-give-up" attitude that permeated throughout the team. Veterans like Rogers were called upon during a trying 3-8 year.
