Dakota Wesleyan University quarterback Shaye Slaughter exudes the desire to be better. Not only as an individual, but also as a team. That was clear on Saturday at Joe Quintal Field against No. 5 Northwestern College following Slaughter's lone interception of the game. As he jogged back to the sideline, he made his frustration evident, yelling at himself to be better before a coach intervened. "Shaye's a competitor," DWU head coach Ross Cimpl said. "He's trying to make a play and it doesn't work out, and it's frustrating."

The Dakota Wesleyan University running game might be a three-headed monster, but none of the heads stand very tall. Starting running back and Canova native Luke Loudenburg is 5-foot-6, 160 pounds, speedster Gaige Marshall is the biggest of the three at 5-foot-11, 195 pounds and bruiser back Chayden Fitzsimmons weighs 175 pounds but is just 5-foot-3. Yet, they have run for 352 yards and four touchdowns through the first two weeks of the season.
