BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Indiana senior quarterback Ben Chappell, senior wide receiver Terrance Turner and senior linebacker Tyler Replogle will represent the Hoosiers at the 2010 Big Ten Kickoff Luncheon on Tuesday, Aug. 3, at the Hyatt Regency in Chicago.
The 39th annual event, which also features IU head coach Bill Lynch and the conference's other 10 head coaches, begins at 10 a.m. CT with the players and coaches autograph and photo session for fans attending the luncheon. The luncheon is scheduled to begin at 11:30 a.m. CT, with comments from all 11 coaches and a player representative.
Chappell, who was recently named to the preseason watch list for the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award, enters 2010 in the top 10 on the school's career lists for completion percentage (.599 - 1st), passing yardage (3,956 - 8th), completions (349 - 7th), attempts (583 - 8th), passing touchdowns (21 - 9th), total offense (4,022 - 10th), 300-yard games (three - 3rd) and 200-yard games (nine - 6th).
He finished 2009 completing 268-of-428 passes (62.6 percent) for 2,941 yards with 17 touchdowns, 15 interceptions and a 126.44 efficiency rating. The Bloomington South graduate became the first QB in IU history to complete over 60 percent of passes in a single season and ended the year in the Hoosiers' single-season top 10 in passing yardage (2nd), passing touchdowns (T-3rd), completions (1st), attempts (2nd), completion percentage (1st) and total offense (2,932 - 4th).
Turner posted a career year in 2009, finishing with 46 catches for 443 yards and one touchdown. He started all 12 games, and had six catches for 68 yards and his first career TD against Wisconsin. In the Penn State game, he posted an additional seven grabs for 78 yards for the Hoosiers.
In his career, Turner has played in 29 games, starting 21, and has 76 career catches. A theatre and drama major, he has starred in two plays on campus - An American Ma(u)l and The America Play.
Replogle was one of the keys to the defense in 2009, as he finished second on the team with 80 tackles while starting nine games at outside linebacker. He finished 12th in the Big Ten with 7.3 tackles per game and 13th in league games only with 7.7 stops each time out. He also had two double-digit tackle games - against Virginia and Illinois - the second and third of his career.
One of three true seniors on the Hoosier roster in 2010, Replogle has played in 28 games over his three years, with his finest coming with a 19-tackle effort against Purdue in 2008. He earned the Terry P. Cole "Impact Player" Award as the team's most outstanding player in the Old Oaken Bucket game for his performance.
