One rarely is lucky enough to start every game of his collegiate career in any sport. In football, it is a rarity. At St. Francis, that is no exception, except for one example. Of the 373 players to have donned the Brown & Gold since the program's formation back in 1986, Mike Feminis is the lone player to have started all 41 games of his career. However, that accomplishment is far from being the most illustrious of this middle linebacker's career. There are many. Each of his four 100-plus tackle seasons rate among the top ten in Saint narrative. His name can also be spotted in the single-season and career categories of solo tackles, sacks, tackles for loss, caused fumbles, fumble recoveries and quarterback hurries. Those numbers are highlighted by his 29 tackles against Hillsdale (MI) in 1987 and 469 career stops, both of which rank atop their respective lists. Runner-up finishes, meanwhile, have come in season tackles (127 in 1989) and career readings for solo tackles (82), sacks (11.0), tackles for loss (17) and hurries (21). Feminis closed out his calling in award-winning fashion garnering USA Today NAIA II Player of he Year accolades, as well as being selected to the NAIA All-America Team. Upon his graduation with a bachelor's degree in Journalism, the four-time NAIA All-District 20 performer joined the CSF coaching ranks, where he has served as the linebackers coach for each of the past six years, including the last two on a full-time basis.
