Austin Dossett's season wasn't going the way he had hoped.
On the verge of losing his starting position, the senior running back for Chester Area sent a text to his head coach Brad Benson asking for one more chance, saying "'I will do better.'"
"All week, I pushed him," said Benson, who has been the head coach of Chester for 10 seasons.
In the single-best rushing performance so far this season, Dossett, whose uncle Nick played for Chester, stepped up. He had 20 carries for 380 yards with seven TDs to lead Chester Area to a 62-40 win over Baltic. His game rushing total ranks 11th on the 9-man all-time single game rushing chart. Dossett, who had totaled just 85 yards rushing in the first three games, now has 465 on the season. On a Friday night that included a mix of rain and sunshine (and darkness), Dossett scored on runs of 39, 48, 52, 75, 22, 70 and 28 yards.
In a program that has included the likes of Austin Opdahl, Drew, Dylan, Bruce and Derek Kreuzfeldt, Dossett's performance was not only a school record but one that will forever stick with Benson and likely in the school's record books.
"We knew we needed to be able to run the ball against Baltic. So it was more than just pushing Austin. I challenged the offensive line," said Benson.
Dossett's performance was part of an electric offensive show as the two teams combined for the most points (102) in the weekend. Not unfamiliar territory for the Chester Area program which has generated points in bunches over the years. In fact, they lost a playoff game to Howard, 75-54, in 2009 when the Tigers rolled to an 11-1 record and a state 9AA title. Against Baltic, the Flyers had nine total TDs, including a pair from QB Cole Acheson.
Chester, which led 44-20 at half, rushed 44 times for 506 yards rushing. While on the losing end, Baltic rolled up 546 yards in total offense (top 25 in 9-man single game total offense) as the two teams combined for 1,051 yards. Baltic QB Kyler Johnson completed 9-of-24 passes for 243 yards and a TD with 21 carries for 215 yards and three TDs, as he had a rare 200-200 double (passing/rushing).
Dossett's seven TDs tied eight others for the second-best single game rushing TD performance all-time. This rushing performance comes on the heels of a special effort by Avon's Brandon Kocmich, who had 378 yards and six TDs two weeks ago. Deubrook's standout senior Riley Hanson had 31 carries for 361 yards and five TDs in 45-32 win over Elkton-Lake Benton three weeks ago. South Central's Turner Serr also had 350 plus rushing with, 26 carries for 356 yards and four TDs against Andes Central on Sept. 13.
With the team's first win in a shootout win, Benson hopes the team can continue to show progress. Regardless, it was a special Friday for Benson and his second-chance pupil. "How was that for a birthday present Coach?," Dossett said to Benson after the game.
Yes, it was Coach Benson's birthday. No need for cake, Benson and his team did all the necessary celebrating on the field.
Loudenberg and Hanson Standing Tall
Neither one stands higher than 5'6 but both Luke Loudenberg of Howard and Riley Hanson of Deubrook are standing tall for their teams. It is noteworthy that the two went head to head in the 9AA state title game won by Deubrook, 25-22, a year ago.
Now, 9AA #4 Deubrook and 9A #1 Howard are performing at a high level, albeit in different classes.
Loudenberg, a 5-5, 140 pound junior, has had quite a run for the Tigers since the start of the playoffs a year ago. With three 200 yard plus games and 900 total rushing yards in the 2012 playoffs, he finished that season with a flurry. And, he has opened the 2013 with gusto as five games into the 2013 regular season, Loudenberg has recorded four more 200-yard plus games. As a result, he has had seven 200-yard games in the last nine contests he has played. In those nine games, he has totaled exactly 2,000 yards.
Howard head coach Pat Ruml appreciates all that Loudenberg does for his team. "Luke is just such a natural athlete that sees the field so well," said Ruml. "He is really quick and extremely shifty. He is a great leader on the field as well as in the classroom. Luke makes our offense go."
For sure Coach Ruml.
In 2013, Loudenberg has 114 carries for 1,100 yards and 21 TDs. Loudenberg's totals include 14-238; 34-223; 22-183; 21-232 and 23-224 in the games this fall. As a result of Loudenberg's performance, the Tigers, the state's top rushing unit a year ago, has already totaled 1,877 yards rushing and 2,099 overall. As for the junior, he has a definite shot at the all-time rushing record at Howard HS, perhaps as soon as this year. Doug Carlson set the mark with 543 carries for 3,731 yards and 42 TDs in 2000-04. Loudenberg now has 310 carries for 2,895 yards and 39 TDs.
As for the 5-6, 155 pound Hanson, he has led the 9AA #4 Dolphins to a 5-1 record with a state-best 1,291 yards on 119 carries with 19 TDs.
Deubrook head coach Adolph Shepardson called Hanson one of the state's best running backs before a snap was taken this fall. And, Shepardson knows good backs. A year ago, Ryan Knudson left much of the 9AA field out of breath after trying to corral the standout.
Shepardson has referred to Hanson as "explosive, talented and a great leader."
It appears he is all that. Hanson is not only quick and fast but he runs with a mission – to help his team win another state title. Getting back to the Dome is what it is about for Hanson, not the yards and TDs. "This team has more to do. I think we are hungry for another state championship," he said in the KSFY Pigskin Preview cover story.
What is a bit interesting is that Hanson, like Ryan Knutson (390 carries, 3,758 yards, 51 TDs in his career) a year ago, had not broken 1K rushing in a season until both became seniors. Knutson, who had 230 carries for 2,434 yards and 40 TDs in the championship run of a year ago, had 809 yards as a junior. Hanson had totaled 706 yards career rushing yards before the start of 2013. Obviously, Hanson and Knutson have totals (and performances) that mirror each other.
After five games in 2012, Knutson had 980 yards and 20 TDs. Hanson reached 971 yards and 14 TDs in the first five games of ‘13. After six games, Knutson had 1,152 yards on the ground and 24 TDs with Hanson putting up 119 carries for 1,251 yards and 19 TDs. In his run, Knutson had six games over 200 and 11 over 100 a year ago. Hanson already has five games over 100 and two over 200 with both putting up over 300 yards in a game (Knutson, 303; Hanson, 361).
While his 1,251 rushing yards this season in six games draws raves, he total numbers are eye-popping. He is one of the few athletes that will likely reach 5K in all-purpose yards along with hitting 2K in rushing and 1K in receiving as well as 3K in total offense. His career numbers include 206 carries for 2007 yards and 30 TDs rushing, 48 receptions for 918 yards and eight TDs, 1,020 kickoff returns yards and a total offense of 2,935 yards. By the way, he has 4,732 all-purpose yards.
Hanson's leaves defenders dizzy from his moves and his numbers leaves most of our heads spinning.
Points Totals Continue at Rapid Pace
A total of 263 teams have scored 30 points or more through six weeks of prep football action in South Dakota. This past week, there were 43 schools, down from 47 a week ago, with 30 points or more. In 2013, 27 teams have scored over 60 points, including four this past week with Colome's 68 points the high mark in 11-man. A total of 74 teams have tallied 50 points or more (11 in week 6) while 188 (30 this past week) have scored 40 points or better. The numbers have been "huge" this season but close games are increasingly dotting the landscape. This past week, six games went to the wire (eight points or less) with 53 "close" games this season. And, the points are matched with a lot of standout defensive performances. A total of 72 teams have shut out including 13 this past week.
Roncalli Has 128 Point Run Over Two Games – Four Quarters
In two games (four total quarters) Aberdeen Roncalli has totaled 128 points (68-0 over Tiospa Zina; 60-0 over Sisseton). If one could combine the two Roncalli shutouts into one game, the Cavaliers would have an all-time scoring mark. The way it stands, the 68 points ranks in the top 35 all-time for single game points. With a third shutout this season, Aberdeen Roncalli now has 49 shutouts since 2004 season, a total unmatched across both 9-man and 11-man circles in South Dakota. They have recorded at least five shutouts in a season five times during that span, including 11 in 2006 and 16 over a two year period of 2005-06 when they won consecutive 11B titles and had an overall 23-1 record.
Winner Extends Streak to 17 Games
11B #2 Winner, the defending 11B champion, defeated #3 St. Thomas More, 30-13, on Tuesday night in Winner behind 154 yards rushing and three TDs from senior running back Trace Meyer and a defense that turned away the Cavaliers twice in the red zone in the second half. The win was the Warriors' state-best 17th straight and sixth consecutive decision over St. Thomas More, dating to a Cavaliers win in 2007.
Garrow Close to Cracking Top 5 in All-time Receptions
While Brandon Valley was in an off-week, standout senior wide out A.J. Garrow has totaled 16 receptions on the season, pushing his career total to 126, which ranks sixth all-time and just two away from fifth on the career list.
Fifteen Team Remain Unbeaten
In South Dakota this year, there are just 15 (five in 11-man, 10 in 9-man) schools remaining with unbeaten records. Of those 15, there is just one team in each of the top three 11-man classes unbeaten, including 11AAA #1 Lincoln (6-0), 11AA #1 Pierre (5-0) and 11A #1 Madison (6-0). In 11B, #1 Aberdeen Roncalli (6-0), along with #2 Winner (5-0) have unblemished marks to this point. In 9AA, #1 Arlington (6-0) along with #2 Garretson (6-0) are unbeaten. The 9A class includes unbeaten teams in #1 Howard (5-0), #3 Wolsey-Wessington (5-0), #4 Leola-Frederick (6-0) and unranked New Underwood (4-0). 9B has four ranked teams without a loss, including #1 Hamlin (6-0), #2 Avon (6-0), #3 Faith (4-0), and #4 Wall (5-0).
Quintanilla Eyeing 5K in All-Purpose and 3K in Rushing Yards
Caden Quintanilla of Sioux Falls Lincoln had 21 carries for 136 yards and three TDs in a win over RC Stevens, 47-10. Quintanilla, who recorded his 16th career 100-yard plus game, now has 143 carries for 990 yards and 16 TDs this season. The Lincoln senior, who is the top rusher in 11-man ranks, has pushed his career rushing totals to 21 carries for 2,830 yards and 44 TDs. He also has 525 touches for 4,829 all-purpose yards and 49 total TDs in his career. In prep history, there are just 16 runners in the 11-man ranks to reach 3K in rushing with the last being Nick Mears of Milbank – now at SDSU – in 2011.
Roosevelt's Christion Passes 2,600 Career Passing Yards
Sioux Falls Roosevelt junior QB Taryn Christion continues to be arguably the most talented dual threat in high school football. Already through six games, he has completed 80-of-136 passes for 1,087 yards and 12 TDs along with 77 carries for 560 yards and seven TDs in 2013. He has hit on 179-of-306 passes for 2,653 yards and 23 TDs in his career. His career rushing totals include 280 carries for 1,133 yards and 19 TDs.
Colome's Kinzer, Warbirds' Johnson Both Pushing Towards 4K in Rushing
Both Colome QB Terrance Kinzer and Wolsey-Wessington running back Ryne Johnson are leaving a mark on the gridiron. Both seniors have a shot at reaching 4K in rushing before the season is done. Kinzer has totaled 352 carries for 3,274 yards in his career. Meanwhile Wolsey-Wessington senior running back Ryne Johnson has 376 carries for 3,542 yards and 46 TDs as well as 4,150, all-purpose yards. To reach the top 10 all-time in rushing yards will require Kinzer and Johnson to reach 4,070 yards. That means Kinzer needs 796 yards while Johnson has to garner 528 yards. Johnson, who has scored 301 points, is the only active player in South Dakota with three consecutive 1,000-yard seasons. Johnson has 15 games career games with 100 yards or more while Kinzer has 13, including four games over 200 yards. Kinzer, who has 4,697 all-purpose yards, has 402 career points, which places in the top 15 all-time in terms of 9-man point production. With 54 career rushing TDs, Kinzer needs three more TDs to move into the top 10 all-time.
Gortmaker Nears 2K Rushing and 3K in All-Purpose Yards
Nick Gortmaker of Menno-Marion finished just with 813 rushing yards a year ago but has already surpassed that total with 117 carries for 903 yards and 10 TDs this fall. As a result he has 351 carries for 1,914 yards and 27 TDs. He also sits just 204 yards from 3K in all-purpose yards (2,796). Gortmaker has 67-of-197 for 1,001 yards and 18 TDs. As a result, he has a combined 45 TDs in his career.
Bronson Reaches 2K in Rushing
Chase Bronson of Wilmot has 318 carries for 2,118 career rushing yards with 26 TDs. Bronson also has 36 rec., 595 yards and six TDs; 37-of-83 for 595 yards and five TDs passing.
Faulkton Area's Wieseler Eyeing 2K in Rushing
Faulkton Area's Darin Weiseler, who was a 1,000 yard rusher (1,334) a year ago, has increased his career totals to 243 carries for 1,797 yards and 15 TDs. He also has nine career 100-yard rushing games.

Trending: 11AAA #1 Sioux Falls Lincoln has been consistently productive this season, rolling up had 478 yards in total yards in their 49-10 win over Rapid City Stevens on Friday. This season, the Patriots have totaled 2,646 yards in total offense, including 1,745 rushing. Lincoln has put together nearly a 2:1 ratio of rushing to pass yards (66-to-34 rush to pass differential). With Alex Schultz firing passes two years ago, Lincoln was more pass-happy than over the past two years with senior standout Caden Quintanilla (11-man best 990 yards in 2013) in the backfield. With Schultz directing controls, the Patriots totaled 4,927 yards, including 3,175 through the air (64.4-to-35.6 pass to run differential) in 2011. A year ago, Lincoln had 3,574 yards in total offense with 2,179 on the ground (60.9-to-38.1 run to pass differential). This season, Lincoln has averaged 441 yards in total offense including games of 449, 479, 411, 357, 472 and 478. They have gone over 300 yards rushing three times with the 361 vs. Stevens the high for the season.
Notes: Led by Quintanilla's 136 yards rushing (990 for the season), 240 all-purpose yards and three TDs, Lincoln overcame a shaky start to defeat Sioux Falls Lincoln, 49-10. Reserve QB Isaiah Roach stepped in for Connor Burchill (knee injury) and completed 11-of-19 passes for 117 yards and a TD. Senior Matt Wagner had his best game of the season, with five rushes for 104 yards and two TDs. #2 Sioux Falls Roosevelt was looking its running back to step up and they did in the 38-7 win over 11AA #3 Mitchell. Seth Bjordal, who had just 151 yards coming in, rushed for 222 yards and 13 carries with TDs of 47 and three TDs to spark the Rough Riders, which finished with 368 yards on the ground. While junior QB Taryn Christion did not have a big game (7-39-TD rushing; 5-16-58 yards passing) it wasn't needed with Bordal doing the damage. As they move toward the playoffs, employing an effective running attack to complement the dynamic passing attack, was critical. Perhaps Bordal will become a valuable weapon. Brandon Valley, which had an open week, has put together a 160-to-89 scoring differential in moving up the polls to #3 with a 4-1 record. The Lynx face Aberdeen Central (2-3) on Oct. 11. The weather was a big factor across the state with the O'Gorman – RC Central game postponed and rescheduled to a later date. Led by Luke Reiter with 17 carries for 153 yards and Dan Marlette with 20 carries for 88 yards and a 1-yard TD run, SF Washington pounded out a 13-7 win over 11AA Huron to even its record at 3-3. Zach Freese had a fumble return for a TD.

Trending: After a slow start (1-3), Arlin Likness's Yankton Bucks are starting to make a run. The Bucks are back to 3-3 after a second consecutive win. Yankton defeated O'Gorman, 22-14, two weeks ago and Watertown, 17-7 on a windy, rainy, stormy night on Friday. In the win over the Arrows, Yankton overcame a 7-0 deficit to and rallied for a 17-7 win. For much of the season, Yankton has failed to find any success on the ground. On Friday, with the wind and rain causing problems for pass games on both sides, Levi Davis stepped up with 151 yards rushing. Davis rushed for more yards against Watertown than he had all season combined (125 yards). Now, Yankton will face its biggest test with a date against #1 Pierre.
Notes: Pierre, which did not play last week, has put together a 171-to-71 point advantage in five straight wins. They will now meet, preseason #1 Yankton, a hot team of late. Mitchell fell to 11AAA #2 Roosevelt, 38-7, at Howard Wood Field as the Kernels mustered just 105 yards in total offense. Mitch Johnson had 15 carries for 53 yards and Ethan Jones hauled in three passes for 50 yards for Mitchell, which trailed 31-0 at the half. QB Kanin Nelson was 5-of-21 for 33 yards with 15 carries for 25 yards and a TD against a tough Roosevelt defense. Brookings dropped a 16-7 home decision to Harrisburg in a game that was suspended 58 minutes by a weather delay at halftime. Shaye Slaughter's TD gave Harrisburg a 13-7 lead and a field goal put the game away against the #5 Bobcats. Brookings' Gerald Maxwell had 135 yards rushing, scoring on a five-yard run in the second quarter after he had a 51-yard run earlier in that drive.

Trending: After season-opening losses, both three-time defending champion Dell Rapids and Hot Springs have turned things around. On Friday, Dell Rapids won its fourth straight as six different players scored TDs in a 41-7 win over Lennox. Brett Nichols had 10 carries for 115 yards and a TD while Riley Schmidt added 82 yards rushing and a TD. After a 39-12 loss to #1 Madison in the season opener, Dell Rapids has 114-to-71 scoring differential in four straight wins. In that stretch, they have not allowed more than seven points in any of the victories. Head Coach Steve Hansen said the team is still trying to find consistency on offense but seems to have found a defense that can stop opponents. Hot Springs also won for a fourth straight time with a big-time performance from standout senior running back Jake Oberpriller, who had 19 carries for 252 yards and four TDs in a 59-13 win over Sturgis. Since losing to 11B St. Thomas More, 35-15, in the opener, the Bison have four straight wins when they have a 182-to-16 scoring advantage over opponents.
Notes: After opening a 20-0 lead, Madison had to rally to defeat #3 Tea Area, 34-31, on the Titans homecoming. Rush Milne had 53 carries 233 yards rushing and five TDs, including the game winner with 27 seconds to play. After falling behind, Tea Area rallied with 10 points during a 33-second straight right before half to trail just 20-17. Later, Tea Area's Gunnar Ensz scored on a 36-yard run to give the Titans a 31-27 lead with 3:44 left. To save its perfect start, QB Jacob Giles (8-of-21 for 91 yards) and Milne put together a game-winning drive. Milne's two-yard run with just 27 seconds to play in the game provided the difference. For the second straight week, preseason #1 West Central lost as 11B #4 Canton came into Hartford and took a 23-0 win. West Central, which was playing its first game without field general Noah Matson, wasn't able to find any real measure of success on the ground with just 95 yards rushing on 27 carries. Cody Miller led the way with 53 yards but Cody Bussell had nine carries for just 12 yards and Cole Tirrel recorded just 27 yards on seven carries. Jace Hanisch, West Central's new signal caller, was 6-of-17 for 71 yards as the Trojans continue to try and make a transition under center.

Trending: With a 17-game winning streak in tow, Dan Aaker's Winner Warriors are becoming the story of the 11B. Along with Roncalli, the Warriors are unbeaten and dealt previously #3 St. Thomas More (4-1) a 30-13 setback in a Tuesday night game that was rescheduled due to the weather conditions late last week. Winner pounded the rock against STM, rolling up 52 rushes for 357 yards on the ground as senior running back Trace Meyer had 21 carries for 154 yards and three TDs. QB Nathan Galbraith had 10 carries for 108 yards and Sam Naasz added 10 carries on 83 yards. Winner didn't complete a pass but the rushing attack and defense again proved to be the difference. While Galbraith is just 8-of-26 for 207 yards passing, the Warriors have rolled up 1401 yards rushing on 222 carries or 6.3 per carry and 280.2 yards per game. In total offense, they have 1,611 yards or 322.2 per game. Breaking it shows that Winner runs the ball on 87 percent of its offensive snaps. Meyer leads the way with 78 carries for 606 yards and eight TDs with Sam Naasz adding 94 carries for 344 yards. Galbraith has 33 carries for 207 yards and three TDs.
Notes: Aberdeen Roncalli rolled up another 60 point output as they moved to 6-0 on the season with their 16th win in 17 games. For the second straight week, Canton recorded a shutout over an 11-man power. After shutting down Tri-Valley, 31-0, two weeks ago, the C-Hawks held 11A #2 West Central to 95 yards rushing and 172 total yards, as they rolled past previously 11A #2 West Central, 23-0, in Hartford. Gabe Dolan had 16 carries for 108 yards and 38-yard TD run to lead Canton, which owns a 152-to-56 scoring differential, has won three straight games and face Elk Point-Jefferson on Friday. St. Thomas More lost for the first time in a 30-13 road decision to Winner, which defeated the Cavaliers for a sixth straight time. STM's problem was not being able to establish a ground game against Winner as they had just 30 yards on 17 carries. Meanwhile, the pass offense was on fire as Matt Eastmo completed 20-of-41 passes for 341 yards and two TDs. Riley Scherr had seven receptions for 176 yards and a TD while Jacob Henderson added six catches for 107 yards and a TD. While they were able to move the ball, twice in the second half they failed to get points when reaching the red zone. In a tight game (22-13 at the time), that can prove costly. Parkston, which has a 115-to-40 scoring edge, had an open week and will host Tri-Valley on Oct. 11. Redfield-Doland cruised to a five straight win with a 55-0 win over Tiospa Zina. Redfield-Doland has a 219-to-106 scoring edge, which is 202-to-69 in their wins. Wagner defeated Todd County, 62-7 on Monday. The Red Raiders have a 143-to-69 edge over opponents.

Trending: Don't blink but watch out for the defending 9AA champs Deubrook Area. Riley Hansen had 29 carries for 278 yards and five TDs to lead Deubrook past 9B #5 Dell Rapids St. Mary, 40-38, in a back-and-forth affair. Between the two schools, they generated over 800 yards in total offense, including 324 rushing yards by Deubrook. During their recent winning streak, the Dolphins have 202 points or 46 ppg. Over the past three plus seasons, Deubrook has featured one of the most explosive rushing attacks in 9-man ranks with 10,913 yards on the ground, including 1,903 this year. They have scored 89 TDs over the past two years on the ground. In total this year, they have averaged 406.8 yards in total offense. It is clear head coach Adolph Shepardson has the offensive machine trucking along.
Notes: Arlington def. DeSmet-Iroquois, 38-14, to win for the sixth straight time. The Cardinals have built a 259-to-100 scoring margin. In their latest win, Tanner Lemme had 18 carries for 158 yards and four TDs while Logan Kansas added seven carries for 64 yards. In a battle of unbeatens, Garretson had the upper hand in a 26-8 win over Parker (4-1). The Blue Dragons have built a 198-to-60 scoring differential this season. Against Parker, Austin Mathiesen had 23 carries for 166 yards and a 56-yard TD run while Jesse Brockhouse had 11 carries for 82 yards and a 15-yard TD run.
