Tufford recognized by Beyond Sports Network

Concordia University quarterback Cohl Tufford has been selected as a Beyond Sports College Network NAIA Athlete-of-the-Week for his efforts in Concordia’s 49-21 win over Dakota State last weekend.   This award is a national award given to only six offensive players in the country at the FCS, DII, DIII and NAIA levels. 

Tufford, a sophomore from Richardson, Texas, finished with 16 carries and a career-high 208 yards in the Bulldog victory last Saturday.  Tufford had a 65-yard rushing score and also threw a 28-yard touchdown pass in the game.  Tufford averaged 13 yards per carry in the win over Dakota State.  He leads Concordia with 342 rushing yards on the season.  

The Bulldogs have won three straight to sit at 3-2 on the year.  Concordia returns to conference play this weekend with a home contest against Briar Cliff University.  It will be Homecoming Saturday with kickoff scheduled for 1 p.m. at Bulldog Stadium.
