Kyle Little picks up GPAC football honor

Concordia’s Kyle Little was recognized as this week’s Hauff Mid-America Sports GPAC Defensive Player-of-the-Week.  Little had a career day in Concordia’s 47-12 victory over Briar Cliff University on Saturday.  

Little, a junior from Johnson, Neb., made the most of his first career start.  The linebacker totaled four solo and seven assisted tackles in the 47-12 rout of Briar Cliff.  Little had two sacks on the day and also had a 44-yard interception return for a touchdown in the first quarter.  Concordia forced four turnovers en route to their fourth straight win.  

Concordia is 4-2 overall and 3-1 in conference play.  The Bulldogs travel to Northwestern College this coming weekend for a matchup against the Red Raiders.  

Northwestern has won three in a row (63-27 over Dakota State, 27-6 over Nebraska Wesleyan, and 51-14 over then #24 Midland University) to sit at 4-2 overall and 2-2 in conference play.  Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m. in Orange City, Iowa.
