NSAA PRESS RELEASE
MADISON, S.D. – The fourth edition of the Dacotah Bank/North Star Athletic Association (NSAA) Football Players-of-the-Week was announced Monday by the conference office. Two Dakota State (S.D.) student-athletes were chosen to the weekly honors. Brodie Frederiksen was selected as the Offensive Player-of-the-Week, while his teammate Wyatt Sanford was chosen as the Defender-of-the-Week.
DSU cruised to a 38-21 homecoming football victory over NCAA Division III Wisconsin-Stevens Point on Sept. 21 at Trojan Field. The Trojans never trailed for the whole 60 minutes in the game.
Frederiksen, 5-foot-8 and 190 lbs. running back, rushed for over 200 yards for the second time in his career at Dakota State. He rushed for a season-high 233 yards and ran for four touchdowns, including a game-long 68-yard touchdown run. He had touchdown runs of 3-, 16- and 1-yard.
Frederiksen finished the game with 240 all-purpose yards. He averaged 10.1 yards per rush (23 rushing attempts).
According to the DakStats-NAIA statistical website as of Monday, Frederiksen ranks second in the nation in rushing yards per game (171.3) and all-purpose yards per game (220.0). He also ranks third in the NAIA in total all-purpose yards (660), fourth in total scoring (42) and scoring per game (14.0). He is fifth in the nation in total rushing with 514 yards.

Sanford, 6-foot and 190 lbs. defensive back, collected a hat trick – three interceptions – in the game for Dakota State. He was just one interception shy of tying the Trojan football single-game school record (4 interceptions by Calvin Aus).
The Trojans set a single-game team record of six interceptions in the game, breaking the previous record of five interceptions which occurred three times. It was over 15 years over when DSU recorded five interceptions in a single game.
Sanford's three interceptions all led to Dakota State's touchdown scoring drives. His first interception came on the third play of the game in the first quarter with 14 minutes, 15 seconds on the clock, led the Trojans to a touchdown for a 7-0 lead with 13:11 left in the first.

His third interception of the game came in the fourth quarter and returned it for 15 yards from the 50-yard line to WSP's 35-yard line, which was followed up with a touchdown to widen DSU's lead to 38-14 with 2:45 remaining.
Sanford also tallied three tackles (1 solo, 2 assist) in the game for DSU.

It's been an eventful past week for the DSU Trojans, especially off the field of competition.
After starting the 2019 season 1-1, with one win against Dakota Wesleyan and one loss against Briar Cliff, the Trojans had a bye the past weekend. It turned out to be anything but a week off.
After several nights of heavy rain, the town of Madison endured a major flooding event with many homes damaged and families needing to evacuate or relocate. DSU cancelled school on Thursday and Friday due to the no-travel advisory in the area. During their days off, many DSU student-athletes got out into the community and offered a helping hand to those affected by the heavy flood damage. Whether it was filling sandbags, assisting a local nursing home with an evacuation, or helping a family move, our players were the consummate example of service and selflessness.

Next up for the Trojans this week, a home game vs the Pointers of Wisconsin - Stevens Point. We look forward to seeing you at 4pm this Saturday (9/21) @ Trojan Field for an exciting homecoming weekend!

Another busy yet fun-filled Saturday for DSU Trojan Football today to cap off the 1st week of Fall Camp!
After a productive morning practice, the team was fed a hearty BBQ meal of chicken and pork by several local families.
Tonight's team meal was the annual 'Sweet Corn Feed' served by the Madison United Methodist Church.
After dinner, the Trojans hit the pool at the Madison Outdoor Aquatic Center for some non-football fun and relaxing!
We will have tomorrow morning off (Sunday) and will be gearing up for a Monday night scrimmage vs. Dordt College.
More info about Monday's scrimmage can be found on the DSU Athletics website.
