    USD FB: Greenfield, Weese garner Valley Player of the Week honors

    ST. LOUIS–South Dakota defensive end Darin Greenfield and kicker Ryan Weese garnered Missouri Valley Football Conference Defensive and Special Teams Player of the Week honors, respectively, announced by the conference office Sunday. 

    The duo helped the Coyotes earn a 31-28 Dakota Days victory over No. 3 Youngstown State on Saturday inside the DakotaDome. It was South Dakota’s third-straight win against a top-20 team, moving the Coyotes to 5-0 for the first time since 2005. 

    Greenfield, a sophomore from Sheldon, Iowa, had seven tackles including six solo tackles, two sacks and another tackle-for-loss in leading the Coyote defense over the Penguins. Both sacks led to Youngstown State punts. Greenfield and the Coyotes held YSU to 188 yards rushing, 100 beneath its season average, and 3.8 yards per carry. Greenfield leads the FCS with 11.5 tackles-for-loss and ranks seventh nationally with 5.0 sacks. 

    A senior hailing from Olathe, Kan., Weese drilled a 29-yard field goal with seven seconds remaining to give the Coyotes a 31-28 edge over Youngstown State. It was the first game-winning kick of his collegiate career. Weese also made good on four extra points. 

    The undefeated Coyotes host Indiana State at 2 p.m. Saturday inside the DakotaDome. Tickets are available at
