The quarterback, Michael Mees, is a freshman.
The running back, Germany Woods, held a purple belt in karate.
One of the linebackers, Craig Sykes, is a pre-med student with a 4.0 grade point average who occasionally completes Rubik's Cubes in less than a minute before games.
Then there's kicker Dan Kilger, an outfielder on Matt Palm's baseball team who joined the team six days before the season opener and has since been named Ohio Athletic Conference Kicker of the Week.
The Student Princes also have a couple of local standouts. Right tackle Derrick Arbogast, a Calvert graduate, was so highly thought of that he represented the team at this year's OAC media day. Hopewell-Loudon graduate Aaron Kapelka once starred on the field in Bascom. Now he's a punishing blocker as a fullback.
There are plenty of interesting stories on Heidelberg's 2011 football team. But the most interesting thing has been watching them win.
It wasn't too long ago that Heidelberg was on the receiving end of whippings like the one it gave Capital on Saturday. The 36-game losing streak the program endured earlier this decade is history. Mike Hallett put an end to that in his first game more than four years ago. But still, Heidelberg hasn't been able to break through to the upper echelon in the OAC. No one was to blame for that. It was a reality of trying to get better in a ridiculously strong conference.
It had been nine years since the Student Princes beat Otterbein. They did it last week.
It had been 12 years since the Student Princes beat Capital. They did it in resounding fashion on Saturday.
Being on the sidelines Saturday, one could see the players are starting to believe something special is in the offing.
Truthfully, I thought Heidelberg might have some difficulties this season, having lost long-time starting quarterback Andrew Miller and receiver Mike Preston. Preston, who caught 76 passes last year, is now on the practice squad of the Tennessee Titans.
Maybe that's why I took Capital to win in the paper. And maybe that's why Jim Troha, the school's vice president for Institutional Advancement and University Relations, jokingly grabbed me by the jacket while we were on the sidelines and asked me how I couldn't pick the Princes.
All I could say was that I'm starting to believe this team is good. And I over-analyze everything.
But after Saturday's 55-3 win, there wasn't much to analyze. Heidelberg is getting better.
And the rest of the OAC will be taking notice.
