The St. Thomas football team is returning to the NCAA Division III semifinals.
Glenn Caruso is not only happy about his team’s success, but also about its ability to score late in the second quarter.
Dakota Tracy is expected to be a leader of the St. Thomas offense this season, and the quarterback played like it on Saturday as the Tommies beat St. Norbert (Wis.) 20-7 in the season opener for both teams at O’Shaughnessy Stadium in St. Paul.
The University of St. Thomas football team is coming off arguably its most successful season in school history. The Tommies finished the 2010 regular season 10-0 and claimed its first outright MIAC title since 1983. They finished the season 12-1 overall and competed in the NCAA Division III quarterfinals for the second consecutive season.
