Hauff Mid-America Sports/GPAC Football Players-of-the-Week

     Morningside College quarterback Joel Nixon is this week's GPAC/Hauff Mid-America Sports Offensive Player-of-the-Week. Nixon, a senior, from Wakefield, Nebraska, completed 20 of 28 passes for 395 yards and five touchdowns in #4 Morningside's 63-7 win over 19th ranked Dakota Wesleyan. Nixon also rushed for 40 yards on eight attempts accounting for 435 total yards of offense on the afternoon for homecoming in Sioux City. The 4th ranked Morningside Mustangs (6-0, 5-0) will play 17th ranked Hastings (6-0, 5-0) on the road this coming Saturday.*

Warydn also had one pass break up and 11 solo tackles leading the Prairie Wolves defense to hold the Dordt offense to just 119 yards, one week after they put up 691 yards of total offense.
