Second year coach Dave Taynor will lead his Bald Eagles into West Chester looking for their first win of the season.

The duo of quarterback Caleb Walton and wide receiver Shawn Seif has produced prolific numbers through the team’s first three games.

Lock Haven is ranked third in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) in passing offense and fifth among all NCAA Division II teams.

Seif, a redshirt senior, leads all of DII in receiving yards with 550. He has hauled in 25 passes and four touchdowns as well.

In an interview with http://www.golhu.com, Taynor said, “Seif continues to improve with and without the ball in his hands. He has developed into a highly versatile and dangerous wide receiver.”

Linebacker Kevin Chapple is first in the PSAC with 23 total tackles. Chapple spent the previous three seasons at Urbana before transferring to LHU this season.

West Chester leads the all-time series 21-6-1 and have won five straight against LHU. West Chester took last year’s meeting 33-9 at Hubert Jack Stadium. Lock Haven’s last victory against West Chester came in 1991, 13-7.

West Chester will enter the game with a 1-2 record.

They began the season with a 31-24 victory over Bentley University.

Their home opener was week two against Slippery Rock and they were downed 36-28.

Week three saw them take on Edinboro and it was a double-overtime defeat, 54-51.

Turnovers have been a problem for WCU thus far. The team has been intercepted ten times and have fumbled twice, but neither was recovered by their opponent.
