Jacks Raise Expectations For 2013

Bookmark and Share

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. --  The South Dakota State football team made the playoffs last season and made history when they got there, winning the program's first postseason game before falling to eventual national champion North Dakota State.

With most of their key players back, the Jacks want to make playoff trips and success a regular the standard.

SDSU held spring practice in Sioux Falls on SAturday.

The Jacks went 9-4 last season and made the FCS playoffs for the first time in three years.  It was just the third postseason appearance in the program's 115 season.

And this spring the Jacks are working toward building a new tradition of excellence.

"Our motto this offseason has been "press on".  That's kind of what we've been doing these past couple of years.  We've been just building on the foundation we've laid and the guys ahead of us have laid."  Junior QB Austin Sumner says.

"Last year kind of set the standard for us and everything.  I really think people are working hard and that's what it's gonna take is hard work.  I think we have a dedicated team.  Everybodies just, you know, they're hungry for more."  Senior DE Doug Peete says.

"I think last year sets the tone for building on that tradition, really, and not having it be a once every four year deal but an every year deal.  And it builds confidence and expectations really."  SDSU Head Football Coach John Stiegelmeier says.

SDSU's spring game begins at 12:30 PM on Saturday at Coughlin-Alumni Stadium.
