It has been more than a decade since the last time the Wisconsin-Whitewater football team finished a season without a 1,000-yard rusher.
And while the Warhawks’ rotation of talented running backs has produced 14 wins this season, that streak of individual achievement was in jeopardy.
But then Dennis Moore reeled off 112 yards in UWW’s NCAA Division III semifinal win against Linfield, giving him 1,033 yards on the season and sending his team to its ninth Stagg Bowl appearance.
“That was one of my personal goals for the season, so I’m really proud of myself, proud of my team and proud of my O-line for blocking,” Moore said after eclipsing the 1,000-yard mark. “It’s great.”
