Briar Cliff football working on the fundamentals before 2020 season


SIOUX CITY, IA (KCAU) – The Great Plains Athletic Conference is one of the few this fall.

In a year where many conferences in the NAIA have elected to move their seasons to spring, the GPAC has held firm that they plan on playing a fall football season in 2020. In order to do so, there have been many precautions put in place, as they look to be one of the pioneers of collegiate sports in the country.

For Briar Cliff, the Chargers are entering their fourth year under head coach Dennis Wagner, and feel that it might finally be time for them to turn the corner. Two years ago the program had it’s first winning season at 6-5 under Wagner, and were on their way to their second straight year, until a three game losing skid landed them at 5-6 in 2019. And after tasting success, then seeing how easily it can slip away, coach Wagner is excited to see this year’s team take the next step to make the Chargers a consistent winner.
