1999 Cobber Preview

The Cobbers are looking to rebound from a 4-6 season in 1998,4-5 in the MIAC. It was just the second losing season for the Cobbers since 1985

Concordia returns two All-MIAC performers from last year's team, senior offensive lineman Jake Estenson and senior kicker/punter, Clayton Horgen

Horgen led the MIAC last year with a 40.65 average on 54 punts . Coach Jim Christpherson, entering his 31st season with a 208-91-7 record,  is hoping Horgen won't have to punt as often in 1999. 

Cobber captains for 1999 are Estenson and defensive end Nels Paulson .

Concordia expects to have ten players with experience as starters back on defense and eight back on offense
