October 28th Update

PHD will be 11 months old next month so we are still young.  That said, there is one thing that we learned quickly and heard a lot about and that is the talent and character of Ty Hoglund.

The stats for the Dell Rapids standout speak for themselves.  He is the returning Dakota XII Conference MVP of course.  But when we talked to college coaches this off-season we heard all about how guys from around the state wanted to play with Hoglund.  How he is a leader and a guy that wants to make others better. 

We expected that we would hear Hoglund pick an NSIC area school with a partial scholarship in the months to come because his talent, leadership, and under appreciated athletic ability (he has had some injuries) would allow him to play at that level. 

But recently Hoglund accepted a scholarship offer from DWU and everything about his decision to accept their offer makes great sense.

“Coach Wilber has a great thing going at Dakota Wesleyan,” Hoglund said. “His energy and passion for the game is a perfect fit for me.”

Speaking of energy and passion, have you seen the DWU roster lately?
