 Holton Ahlers, East Carolina, Player News


  Ahlers' numbers went down in 2020, although that can be primarily attributed to a lower number of games on the schedule. He compiled 1,921 yards and 18 touchdowns through the air, while his ground numbers declined even further, as he totaled just 109 yards and one touchdown. Despite a sharp decline in statistics, there is one metric that says it might not all be on Ahlers. His completion percentage has gone up in each season, from 48% as a freshman, to 60% as a sophomore and 61% as a junior. Ahlers has a shot to make the most of the 2021 season. This will be his third year in Houston's offense, which means he has had plenty of time to learn the nuances of the scheme. 2020 would have typically been a make-or-break year for Ahlers as a junior, but COVID-19 has pushed that critical season back. - The East Carolinian

  Recent offseason workouts led by East Carolina football director of strength and conditioning John Williams impacted not only underclassmen looking to make their mark with the Pirates, but also starting quarterback Holton Ahlers. The fourth-year rising junior was one of the main players Houston mentioned as improving his body since the end of the 2020 season in late November. "He is in the best physical shape I've seen him," Houston said of Ahlers after Friday's first spring practice when asked about spring QB repetitions. "He's slimmed down some and really worked on his flexibility. He's more explosive and faster and noticeably improved his body and his athleticism since the fall. That is something with talks with Big John and (offensive coordinator) Donnie (Kirkpatrick) and Holton, this is what he needs to do. He has worked his tail off. "It's a great to have a veteran like that we all believe in. He is the leader of our team and leader of our offense, but you have four other guys who need reps. Holton will get his reps and get his work, but I think it's important we really develop those other guys." - Daily Reflector

  After a slow start to the season, Ahlers was able to turn things around in the second half, creating a lethal passing game. Notable games include Nov. 2, against No. 17 Cincinnati, where Ahlers threw for 535 yards and four passing touchdowns. The Pirates fell to the Bearcats 46-43 but Ahlers kept the Pirates in it until the end with his work through the air. ECU went up against No. 25 SMU on Nov 23, and Ahlers threw for 498 yards and an outstanding six touchdowns with zero interceptions. The Pirates lost to the Mustangs 59-51 but once again Ahlers dominated the game on the offensive side.

Ahlers works as a dual threat quarterback being able to move the ball through the air and on the ground as the ball carrier. The 6'3" and 235 pound Ahlers uses his size to give him an effective ground game by nearly matching the size of opposing linebackers. Last season Ahlers ran for 359 yards and scored six touchdowns. For the ECU offense to thrive, Ahlers must start the season strong. If he can attack the opposing defense in the air with the success he had in the second half of last year, ECU will have more success. Success will also come if Ahlers can continue his strong run game. With football changing, many dual threat quarterbacks are finding success and Ahlers can be one of them. - The East Carolinian

  East Carolina, which followed UCF moving from Conference USA to the American Athletic Conference, is cutting at least one sport due to coronavirus pandemic budget issues. The Pirates are looking to trim at least one of 20 sports to offset at $10 million budget deficit, the Charlotte Observer reported that the school's interim chancellor and athletics director announced during a special board meeting Monday. The minimum number of NCAA sports allowed to compete at the Football Bowl Subdivision level is 16. The Pirates could cut up to four while still complying with NCAA rules.

UCF, meanwhile, supports 16 sports and athletics director Danny White has said the school has no plans to cut any of them even if the NCAA approves a waiver to allow it. East Carolina, meanwhile, does not see any other option moving forward. "The financial model is not sustainable," East Carolina interim chancellor Ron Mitchelson said, according to the Observer. East Carolina entered the pandemic on different footing than UCF, with the Pirates struggling financially and the Knights in the midst of a fundraising boom fueled by its success in football and many other sports. While the Pirates will cut at least one sport, they plan to keep competing in the AAC. - Orlando Sentinel

  Holton Ahlers scored on a 2-yard run with 3:31 remaining in the game and East Carolina rallied last in a 31-24 victory over Connecticut on Saturday. UConn trailed 24-14 after three quarters, but Clayton Harris kicked a 27-yard field goal 27 seconds into the fourth period and Zack Zergiotis hooked up with Cameron Ross for a 94-yard scoring strike to pull the Huskies even at 24 with 9:28 left to play. After Harris missed a 50-yard field goal that would have cut the Huskies' deficit to four points, the Pirates (4-7, 1-6 American Athletic Conference) took over at their own 33-yard line. East Carolina survived a scare when Tyler Snead fumbled at the UConn 2-yard line after a catch that gained 9 yards, but it was recovered by the Pirates and Ahlers scored the game-winner on the next play.

Ahlers completed 34 of 50 passes for 374 yards and a score for the Pirates, but he threw two interceptions. Darius Pinnix Jr. rushed for 105 yards and two TDs on 27 carries. Snead finished with 16 catches for 126 yards. The freshman had 35 receptions for 366 yards and three TDs in his final two games. Jack Zergiotis completed 21 of 37 passes for 418 yards for the Huskies (2-9, 0-7). He threw three TD passes but was intercepted twice. Freshman Cameron Ross had eight catches for a career-best 169 yards and two scores. - East Carolina/AP College Football

  Warren Saba blocked a punt for a touchdown, Horton Ahlers passed for two more and East Carolina held off Old Dominion 24-21 Saturday night. Each team scored a field goal on its first possession, but the tide began to turn when Saba blocked a Bailey Cate punt and recovered the ball for a four-yard touchdown. A series later, Cate pinned the Pirates (3-2) back at the 4 with a 49-yard punt. Demetrius Mauney tore off a 21-yard run to kick off the 96-yard scoring march.

Ahlers teamed with Blake Proehl on a 72-yard TD for a 17-3 halftime lead. The 14-point lead is ECU's largest after a half against an FBS team since the 2015 season. Old Dominion's (1-3) Kesean Strong dove across from the 1 - he also picked up the two-point conversion - with 2:13 remaining as the Monarchs cut the gap to 24-21. ECU was able to run out the clock in four plays for the win and also snap a 10-game road losing streak that began in the 2017 season. - AP College Football
