FB: Vikings Travel to Rapid City to Battle the Hard Rockers

Sep. 23, 2011 9:19 AM | Author: Viking Sports Admin | Updated: Sep. 23rd, 2011 9:25 AM

 

In what is one of several crucial games for the Vikings post season hopes VCSU will face a tough road challenge and an experienced group from SD Mines. While the Hard rockers are off to a slow start this season at 0-4, the Vikings know that going on the road and playing a veteran team will be a tough test. Offensively the Hard Rockers bring a balanced attack with senior quarterback Nick Russell and senior running back Jaime Dale leading the way. A season ago Dale ran for 198 yds on 30 carries and Russell passed for 192 yds and a touchdown in a 21-24 Mines victory.

Defensively the Hard rockers will play an aggressive style, attempting to pressure the offense into quick decisions. The Vikings will have to continue protecting quarterback Tommy Zinke and Zinke will have to make good decisions with the ball to capitalize on the one-on-one coverage down the field.
