Gaines Picks Up Weekly Football Honor

(Wednesday, October 31; Sioux Center, Iowa)  The Great Plains Athletic Conference and Hauff Mid-America Sports has announced its football players of the week for games played October 27.

Brett Gaines (Senior; Wood River, Illinois) has earned the special team honor for the second time this season.

Gaines converted all three of his field goals  from 36, 30 and 20 yards and he also converted all three of his point after kicks as Dordt improved to 6-2 this season.

"Brett has accounted for 66 of our team's points this year.  He is 9-10 on field goals for the season and 39-41 on extra points.  On our leadership trip to Wyoming this summer he gave himself the job title “manager of consistency” and it’s awesome to see him own that role so well.  Last Saturday every point mattered and getting the ball to field goal range knowing you are going to get points is a huge advantage for our team.  I’m proud of the hard work Brett has put in over the course of his career,” said Dordt College football coach Joel Penner.

Dordt will play on the road against Morningside on Saturday with kickoff at 1:00.
