Both of these teams’ records also entail their RMAC seasons thus far as well.While the Trailblazers have been blessed to have three of their first four games of the season at home, the inverse has been true for the Yellow Jackets as three of their first four games have been on the road.Despite Black Hills State’s poor record, signal-caller Ryan Hommel has been solid, completing 60.8 percent of his passes on the season for 753 yards, four touchdowns and one interception.Hommel has also run for 202 yards and a pair of scores for the Yellow Jackets while Payten Gilmore is Black Hills State’s leading rusher thus far, running for 145 yards and a pair of scores.The leading receiver for the Yellow Jackets on the season is Eriq Swiftwater who has hauled in 24 grabs for 234 yards and two touchdowns.The problems for Black Hills State lie primarily on the defensive side of the ball as they have surrendered 472.2 yards per game with senior defensive back Drew Hebel’s two interceptions leading the Yellow Jackets.The Trailblazers have already made history this season as the 3-1 start is their best-ever mark in their history as an NCAA Division II member.This is the first of two consecutive road games for Dixie State as the Trailblazers will have their first non-conference game of the season October 6 at #3 Grand Valley State at Allendale, Mich.

FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailABC News(NEW YORK) — When Zion Williamson was selected as the number one pick in the NBA draft, there was one person he knew deserved all the credit — his beloved mother.The 6-foot, 7-inch, 285 pound former Duke University superstar was taken by the New Orleans Pelicans Thursday night.But the 18-year-old knew he wouldn’t have achieved his b-ball dreams without his mom, Sharonda. The doting mom “put her dreams aside for me,” he told ABC News.“My mom sacrificed a lot for me. I wouldn’t be here without my mom,” Williamson added. “She did everything for me. I just want to thank her.”And his mom couldn’t be prouder.“He’s worked since [he was] 5 for this moment,” she said. “To watch his hard work pay off…to watch this, we’re so happy for him. We’re so happy.”“Good Morning America” co-anchor Robin Roberts sat with Williamson earlier this week. The topics ranged from basketball to first-name fame — LeBron, Shaq and Zion have all been number one picks — to, of course, his mom.She was the toughest coach Williamson ever had, the superstar said.“We’d be in the car ride home after my middle school games and my stepdad would be like, ‘Yeah, that was a great game.’”“My mom would be like, ‘Good game?’” he continued. “‘You missed a pass there. You didn’t shoot it here.’”“Her being my biggest critic was the best thing for me, actually,” Williamson said.And now comes the hard part for Williamson — playing in the NBA against the world’s best basketball players. But it’s a challenge he’s “dreamed” about since he was a child.“For it to actually happen,” he said, tears streaming down his face, “I just thank God for it.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
