SPENCER'S LOGAN ZSCHERNITZ ELEVATED TO STARTING ROLE AT NIU
Spencer/Columbus Rocket alumn, Logan Zschernitz, has been named a starter on the offensive line for Northern Illinois University's game Wednesday, Nov. 13, at Toledo. Zschernitz, a true freshman for the Huskies, has seen playing time during the last two weeks.
As a senior with Spencer/Columbus, Zschernitz was named Cloverbelt Conference Offensive Player of the Year in 2018, helping the Rockets to a second-place finish in the conference, an 11-2 overall record, and a trip to the WIAA Division 5 state semifinals.

Former Spencer/Columbus player Hunter Luepke is also receiving starting time at North Dakota State University. Luepke, who last played for the Rockets as a senior in 2017, began 2019 for the Bison as a redshirt freshman. Luepke has played in nine of 10 games this season, starting twice. First-place (Missouri Valley) NDSU next takes the field on Saturday, Nov. 16 at home vs. South Dakota with kickoff scheduled for 2:30 p.m. The game can be seen on ESPN+.
