Mount Union Football, fell short in its bid for an 11th Division III football national championship .
Mount Union Football makes its sixth consecutive appearance in the NCAA Division III national championship game - the Amos Alonzo Stagg Bowl - today.
Almeida has been a part of the last three Stagg Bowls, but never like this season.
Two years ago, Almeida was a freshman on the Raiders’national championship teMount Union Footballam, handling kickoffs. I missed the game a lot. Almeida’s leg has improved to the point where not only is he handling kickoffs, but also extra points and field goals - with a lot of success. “I hope there’s nothing different going through my head than any normal extra point or field goal during the regular season,” Almeida said. Lavell Coppage rushed for a title-game record 299 yards and three touchdowns, and Wisconsin-Whitewater shut the Purple Raiders out in the second half and claimed its third Amos Alonzo Stagg Bowl trophy with a 31-21 win over Mount Union on Saturday at Salem Stadium.
