DODGE CITY, Kan. – A full Jayhawk Conference slate and a trip to national-power and 2012 national champion Iowa Western highlight the 2014 Dodge City Conquistador football schedule.
DC3 will play a total of six home dates, including the Aug. 30 season-opener against Ellsworth (Iowa).
The Conqs travel to Council Bluffs, Iowa for a Sept. 20 date at Iowa Western. DC3 also has an Oct. 18 bout at Iowa Central.
In Jayhawk Conference play, DC3 plays host to Butler, Coffeyville and Hutchinson and have road dates at Independence, Fort Scott and its regular-season finale at Highland.
“We play a very exciting and difficult schedule this fall,” said DC3 head coach Gary Thomas, who will be entering his second season at the helm. “We definitely don’t duck anyone. Our conference schedule is always going to be a challenge, but we added a couple of tough non-conference games. Including our scrimmage, we have 12-straight weeks of football.”
