FARGO -- By this point, Barnesville senior Cameron Heng knows playing November football like the back of his hand.
It's physical, fast, and meaningful.
"It’s fun. I wouldn’t trade this time for anything, just being with the guys and the coaches," Heng said. "It’s just the best sport ever."
Heng has rushed for more than 1,000 yards for a Trojan team that is known for running the football.
He's required to be a tough runner. Toughness is nothing that he, or his family, lack for.
Cameron is the youngest of three siblings, behind his 25-year old brother Tyler and 23-year old sister Ashlin.
When Ashlin was nine months old, her mother Tracy sensed something wasn't right.
"Say at like six months old, you can sit them on the floor with pillows behind them and they can sit up, rollover and get up on all fours," Tracy said. "Then crawl over to a piece of furniture, pull up on the furniture. She couldn't do any of that."
Hot-shooting Northern Iowa sinks Bison women in home opener
FARGO — North Dakota State wasn’t hitting on all five women’s basketball cylinders on Wednesday night. It was hard to find even one or two.
The Bison struggled from the field, had a difficult time containing Northern Iowa guard Karli Rucker and the result was a home opener flop. UNI reversed last year’s outcome on the same Scheels Center at Sanford Health Athletic Complex floor with a 76-63 nonconference victory.
After an impressive season-opening win at Wisconsin-Milwaukee, the Bison dropped to 1-2 in a couple of performances that probably won’t fare well against the better teams in the Summit League starting late next month. The Bison were picked third in the Summit preseason poll.
“There’s an arrogance, maybe, that doesn’t need to be there that we haven’t earned or deserved at all and that may be part of our problem,” said NDSU head coach Jory Collins.
