2. Drake Football News Story (Coursework)

Football is back!



The Drake Football team has been hard at work since the beginning of the year and are finally getting out on the field for a six-game spring season.

Tomorrow, the Bulldogs are playing the San Diego Toreros from the University of San Diego. After an unfortunate cancellation of their fall season due to COVID-19, the still optimistic players and coaches have been hard at work in hopes for an opportunity to play in the spring.

Head Coach, Todd Stepsis said, “It was a matter of staying ready, so we didn’t have to get ready.”

First-year Marketing student and wide receiver, Brandon Langdok, said that in place of the fall season, the team got more time to work on the field and in the weight room. Not to mention, it gave himself and fellow first years more time to get acclimated as a student athlete at Drake.

In terms of the regular season being cancelled, Langdok said “being a freshman coming in and trying to learn the new plays and the new system, it definitely helped.”

            However, despite having that time to get better and prepare for what was to potentially come, the football team and all of Drakes athletics still faced difficulties.

            “There are a ton of different rules that make it harder to do the sport how you usually do it.” Langdok said.

            On the staffs’ end, Stepsis said they had a hard time reading and communicating with the players, as they were not always allowed to meet face-to-face, especially without masks on.

            “Our coaching staff deserves a lot of credit, too because they were constantly checking in on our players.” Stepsis said.

            He also added that they weren’t necessarily worried about the players, physically, more so mentally. They had to cope with being on a team, while also being alone for a majority of the season, which is a challenge in and of itself.

            Coach Stepsis encourages everyone to come out to the game, if they can. In our area, the ISU Cyclones and Iowa Hawkeyes dominate the college football scene. However, neither of the teams are doing a spring season, which makes Drake unique.

            Stepsis said he’s hoping to get more fans to come out and support the Bulldogs, and also sees this season as an opportunity for people to leave the house and enjoy the outdoors, while also rooting for Des Moines hometown team.

            This six-game season will end on April 17, where they are playing Presbyterian Blue Hoses at our own Drake Stadium. Get tickets online, now, for the next two home games coming up.
