Jason Vander Laan, QB
FSU Football


Vander Laan, the sophomore starting quarterback for Ferris State University, had a second half explosion that helped defeat the Lake Erie Storm on September 14.

Vander Laan finished with 279 yards rushing on 27 attempts with four rushing touchdowns. The sophomore added 170 yards passing with three passing touchdowns.

Seven of the eight touchdowns Ferris State scored were credited to Vander Laan, who also punted twice for 67 yards.

He and the Bulldogs will prepare for a road test at Ashland Saturday, Sept. 21, who defeated Ferris last year at Top Taggart Field 47-32 in the Bulldogs’ home opener.
