Concord grad leaving his mark on Saint Francis

GOSHEN — One week after leading the University of Saint Francis football team to a win in a relief role, senior quarterback David Yoder guided the Cougars to a 37-28 victory over Saint Francis (Illinois) as a stater.

The Concord High School graduate completed 31-of-51 passes for 262 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

It was the fifth straight win for the Cougars. The offense rolled up 513 yards of total offense and ran 108 plays, just two shy of tying the NAIA record for plays in a game.

One week ago, Yoder came off the bench to replace starter Josh Miller. While playing just 20 minutes, Yoder threw two TDs and rushed for another in a 35-20 come-from-behind win of No. 10-ranked St. Xavier University. Yoder’s effort earned him a second consecutive Mid-States Football Association Mideast League Offensive Player of the Week honor.

Yoder is the first Saint Francis quarterback to win the award back-to-back since 2002. Yoder also won the award during the 2012 season.

In two games this season, Yoder was 38-of-56 passing (67.86 percent) for 361 yards. He has four TDs and no interceptions.
