He led the Falcons in scoring all three years he played, his career scoring average (16.3 ppg) ranks eleventh in BG history. He served as captain that season, his junior year, and scored a school record 38 points in a 78-18 win over Findlay on January 17. The mark stood in the Falcon record book for almost 30 years.
Stough also was a member of the baseball team, and was inducted into the BG Athletic Hall of Fame in 1991.
