Austin DeNoyer

Jr. RB, Martin Luther College

• In this past Saturday’s 35-22 win over MacMurray, the Knights ran for a season-high 429 yards. In that win, DeNoyer led the team on the ground with 173 yards rushing and a TD. With the win, the Knights clinched at least a share of their second consecutive Upper Midwest Athletic Conference championship and the league’s automatic qualifier into the NCAA Division III Championships.

• That big game also put DeNoyer over the 1,000-yard mark for the second consecutive season. His 1,081 rushing yards are just 5 shy of his MLC single-season record that he set last season. He also moved into fourth place in MLC history with 2,167 rushing yards in only two seasons.
