(9-9-17) Coldwater grad Brody Hoying (RS-Sophomore) has had a spectacular start to the 2017 Eastern Michigan football season.

Today Hoying was a big part of the Eagles first ever win against a Big 10 conference team in 39 tries when they beat Rutgers on the road 16-13. The Eagles are now 2-0 on the season with the win.

In the 2nd half Hoying, a defensive back,  stepped in front of a (QB) Kyle Bolin pass and returned the interception 71 yards to the Rutgers 5.  Hoying had a very busy day on defense for the Eagles as he added 5 solo tackles.

Last week in the Eagles’ win over Charlotte Hoying ran back a 45 yard interception for his first collegiate TD.

For Hoying choosing EMU has turned out to be a plus for both him and the Eagles, it could be an interesting run for them in the MAC.

Eastern Michigan will take a two-week break before they play Ohio at home on September 23rd.

Minster grad Eli Wolf also committed to EMU the same time Hoying did in July of 2014. Wolf never made it to campus as he decided to walk-on at Tennessee and join his older brother Ethan.  That move has been good for Wolf, as he was awarded a scholarship before the start of this season.
