Fresh off their program best-ever 6 win season, including a conference best 3-3 record, Presentation College head football coach Andy Carr, his staff, and his team set their sights on even higher marks as they begin their 2015 campaign against Briar Cliff University.  This first ever meeting between the Saints and the Chargers, who are members of the Great Plains Athletic Conference, will kick off in the Dakota Dome in Vermillion, SD Saturday August 29th at 1:00pm.

In addition to the highest win totals for both overall season and the North Star Athletic Association conference season, the Saints also landed in the NAIA top 20 rankings of several categories:

5th in Division I in First Downs per Game (24.800)
7th in Division I in Total Offense Yards per Game (454.400) 
7th in Division I in Opponent 4th Down Conversion (31.000)
10th in Division I in Rushing Offense per Game (229.100)
10th in Division I in Scoring Offense per Game (36.600)
17th in Division I in Total Rushing Offense (2291)
17th in Division I in Total Scoring Offense (366)
20th in Division I in Pass Defense per Game (173.100).

There were also standout individual performances throughout last year, including RB Hayden Zenner, who made his presence felt in his very first season by twice setting the team's single game rushing yards mark, racking up 248 yards against Mayville State on October 4th, then two weeks later, shattered that with a 289 yard performance against Waldorf.  His 289 yards rushing was the 3rd highest mark all season in the entire NAIA.
