Offense to propel Dakota Wesleyan

In Ross Cimpl's first year as the Dakota Wesleyan head football coach, the Tigers did see their offensive production dip a little bit. But the result was still the same, as Dakota Wesleyan registered its second consecutive 6-4 season (5-4 in the GPAC).

In 2011, the year before Cimpl's first season, the Tigers had the conference's best passing attack, ranked second in the GPAC in total yards per game and averaged 31.8 points per game (fourth in the GPAC). With eight starters returning on offense, there's no reason Cimpl's squad can't put up those numbers in 2013.

"Offensively, we did some good things last year. We had some guys that really did a lot for us on the offensive side of the ball. We have about seven or eight offensive seniors coming back," Cimpl said. "We have some good guys. Who wants to take over and be that guy for us, that's what we're going to be looking for."
