  (Sioux City, Iowa) –   The Great Plains Athletic Conference (GPAC) held their twelve annual football media day on Wednesday, August 3, at the Holiday Inn Downtown in Sioux City, Iowa.  The day featured comments from all ten of the league’s football coaches in preparation for the 2011 season. 
  One of the highlights of the day is the release of the preseason coaches’ poll.  Morningside is preseason pick to win the GPAC championship.  The Mustangs totaled 79 points and seven (7) first place votes.  Northwestern was picked second with 74 points and the final three (3) first place votes.  Midland was picked third with 65.  Coaches were not allowed to vote for their own team.
