Even though the University of South Dakota football team couldn’t quite steal a victory from Kansas this past Friday at Memorial Stadium in Lawrence, Kansas, South Central Calhoun alumnus Kody Case passed a career threshold for the Coyotes.

In the 17-14 setback against the Jayhawks, Case snagged two passes for 37 yards, which helped the junior wide receiver surpass the 1,000 career receiving yards.

In his four seasons at USD, Case caught 72 receptions for 1,026 yards and eight touchdowns, despite battling injuries. Due to NCAA rules concerning COVID-19, Case – who did not suit up during the 2020 season – was not charged with a year of eligibility.

Although he sat out of the shortened 2020 season, Case received the Missouri Valley Football Conference President’s Council Academic Award, an MVFC Commissioner’s Academic Excellence Award and was a member of the MVFC Honor Roll.

The Coyotes (0-1) will host Northern Arizona at 1 p.m. on Saturday at the DakotaDome in Vermillion, South Dakota.
