After going 0-9 in the conference last year, Dordt College is looking to finally get out of the cellar of the GPAC.
The Defenders, who are in their sixth year as a football program, have tied for or have had sole possession of last in the conference every year since their arrival in 2008. But with 15 starters returning in 2013, that has a chance to change.
"We obviously know we have a lot of things to improve on, but we're excited with the young men in our program," said second-year head coach Greg Youngblood. "We had two wins on the season, and we feel we can improve on that. We have a core group of guys who we're excited about."
