From new helmets at Midland University to three new coaches in the league, change was the dominant theme at the GPAC Media Days on Thursday.
After an 8-2 season last year, Doane College head coach Matt Franzen is faced with replacing the GPAC Offensive Player of the Year in Anthony Dunn.
"We have 2 returners on the team a transfer coming in, 3 Freshman coming in at quarterback, and fall camp is really going to be a competition," Franzen commented.
In his 17th season at Nebraska Wesleyan, Brian Keller will have a different quarterback than he ended the year with as Nate Hauptman returns from a collarbone injury which ended his season.
"I know mentally he grew during that time, just being able to see it from a different prespective, so having him back I think is going to be great," Keller said.
It's Year 2 for Hastings College head coach Tony Harper, following a 6-4 season, he is looking to take the Broncos to the next level.
"I have to hold myself, our coaches, our players to a higher standard, we have to continue to get better and not rest on what we did last year," Harper said.
Facing a year of change, the GPAC looks to build upon the same level of tradition and excellence.
