Waynesburg QB Leaving Opponents Dumm-Founded


Robertson, Scott, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (Pittsburgh, PA)


Jeff Dumm is on a hot streak at Waynesburg College.

A starting quarterback, his effort in a 70-14 season-opening win against Denison Sept. 6 earned him the Presidents' Athletic Conference Offensive Player of the Week Award for the fourth time in eight games, dating back to last season.

If he continues on such a roll, he might win as many awards as he has had offensive coordinators in his high school and college careers.

Dumm, a 6-foot-4, 200-pound junior from Charleroi Area, completed 14 of 18 passes for 156 yards and four touchdowns in the rout of Denison. Those numbers lifted him into fifth place on Waynesburg's all-time list for passing yardage and total offense.

Going into yesterday's game at Randolph-Macon, Dumm had 2,933 passing yards, moving past Mike Forbes, who played from 1979-82. Next in line is No. 4 Larry Cernansky, who threw for 3,225 yards from 1975-79.

Dumm is well within range of the school record of 5,912 yards by Darren Elvey (1994-97).

The Yellow Jackets' current quarterback also moved into fifth place in total offense with 3,047 yards. No. 4 is John Huntey, who quarterbacked Waynesburg to the NAIA national championship in 1966 and racked up 4,293 yards. Elvey also is No. 1 on that list with 5,906 yards.

Not bad for a guy who has played for six offensive coordinators since his junior year of high school. Geneva College had two in one season before Dumm transferred, and Waynesburg has had three in his three years there. Mike Uremovich is the current one.

"I haven't had a steady offensive coordinator since [high school]," Dumm said. "It can be tough changing around so much. But I kind of look at it as a positive since I've had the chance to learn a lot of different systems. I think I've been able to take a little bit from every one, and that has helped make me a little better.

"As far as the records go, I don't think about that much. I would like to throw the ball every down, but it doesn't matter to me how we do it as long as we win. If we throw for 50 yards and win the game, that's all that matters. I'll do whatever the coaches want."

Winning did not occur often when Dumm started his career at Waynesburg. He played parts of eight games, completing 27 of 47 passes for 284 yards and one touchdown in 2001, as the Jackets went 3-7, losing their last four.

Things seem to be getting better for Dumm and the team. He started all last season and completed 211 of 347 passes for 2,493 yards and 22 touchdowns as the Jackets posted a 5-4 mark.

He made first-team All-PAC last season by averaging 283.9 yards passing per game,. That total ranked Waynesburg No. 16 in NCAA Division III in that category.

Those 70 points in the opener were the second-most in school history, behind an 81-point performance against Frostburg State in 1967. That outburst could be a sign that Waynesburg is a threat to win its first conference title. …
