The goal for the Dakota Wesleyan University football team this week is to put together a complete game. So far this season, both coaches and players said the No. 22 Tigers have shown signs of urgency but haven't shown intensity for four quarters. "We're doing some good things and we have some guys who are making plays and starting to mature, but when our backs are against the wall, we play with urgency," DWU third-year head coach Ross Cimpl said.

SALEM -- Shayne Gottlob gets after it on the football field. Because of his physical play, the Salem native got the nickname "Cement Head" during his first year at South Dakota State University. "He is such a physical guy," SDSU defensive tackles coach Jesse Currier said. "He got the name because he will truck the guy he's going against." Through his hard work, Gottlob has continued to progress for the Jackrabbits (3-1) and still has yet to reach his potential, according to Currier.

The Kernels (10-14, 4-8 ESD) fell to Brandon Valley 7-2. Buckley defeated Logan Hawkins 10-8 at No. 5, while No. 6 Hanks topped Chandler Harstad 10-8. "Kendra lost to this girl earlier this season and avenged that loss," Mitchell coach Pat Moller said.
Ross Cimpl has great pride in his team's ability to rebound after a loss. Last season, the Dakota Wesleyan University football team was 3-0 in contests after a loss. "Going through adversity and then winning some games last year is something we can reference," Cimpl said at Thursday's practice. "We did a good job of letting things go and that's positive for us. Hopefully, this group of guys can understand that and look forward." After suffering their first loss of the season last week, the Tigers slipped to No. 22 in the national polls after falling to then-No.

HOWARD — A 2-yard play call can easily become a breakout run for a touchdown for the Howard football team. With running backs like Luke Loudenburg, this often happens for...
When watching an NFL game, it's standard to see Adam Vinatieri come onto the field after a touchdown is scored. At the professional level of football, point after touchdown (PAT) attempts are expected. But there are fewer teams using the PAT field goals in the lower levels of the sport. In a survey conducted by The Daily Republic, results showed that more 11-man teams kick PATs than nine-man programs. Of the 19 schools that replied to the survey, six 11-man and 13 nine-man, only four teams kicked a PAT attempt 100 percent of the time.
