Kevin Rouse


Versatile, durable and tough. Those words sum up Kevin Rouse as one of the most tenacious defenders in Loras' football history. More than 20 seasons after he made his first crunching hit, Rouse still holds the career record of 450 tackles. He was a ringleader on defense that set a school record of allowing only 114.5 yards a game passing. A standout again at linebacker as a sophomore, the Duhawks improved to 7-3 and along the way recorded the 200th victory in Loras sterling football history. In his final two seasons, he claimed four citations as NAIA District defensive-player- of- the week (two each season) and was an NAIA honorable mention All-America after his All-District 15 NAIA selection as a senior. After a 0-3 start in 1984, the Duhawks went 5-2-1 against probably the toughest schedule in the school's history - five scholarship programs.

A marketing graduate, Rouse is an insurance agent in Yorkville, Ill. Rouse and his wife, Sue, have eight children - Kevin, Ashley, Kyle, Mary Susan, Therese, Jane, Michael and Daniel.
