All Steve Elzenga wanted was a chance to play two sports in college. Southwest State gave it to him. Elzenga played football and basket- ball with the Mustangs from 1983-88. He was one of the two players to be inducted into the Horseshoe Honor Club on Saturday, October 25th. He was honored at halftime of the football game against Minnesota State- Moorhead. Elzenga set six national records as SSU quarterback. He also ranks second overall in school history in career free- throw percentage. "I wasn't sure if I had the talent to play both (sports), but I wanted an opportunity to try both," Elzenga said. He signed a letter of intent to play foot- ball at St. Cloud State. At the first day of practice, he changed his mind. "I was on campus for the first day of practice," he said, "I did- n't like it. When I first got there, they told me I could play two sports." St. Cloud and Mankato were among the North Central schools try- ing to recruit Elzenga, who led Westbrook to the state nine-man football champi- onship (1982). Noel Martin, St. Cloud State's football coach, told Elzenga that playing two sports at a NCAA Division II univer- sity was impossible. "He said it wasn't going to hap- pen," Elzenga said. "Basically, he told me through the winter, I'd be in a strength conditioning program. It was football all the way. The basketball coach went with him on that." Elzenga said thanks, but no thanks, to St. Cloud State. That's where SSU came in the picture. Transferring from a NCAA school (St. Cloud) to a NAIA school (Southwest) meant a student-athlete was eligible to play imme- diately. "I could play right away," Elzenga said. '"The biggest thing coming to Southwest, I wanted to play two sports. Coach (Gary) Buer and Pierre (duCharme) were for that. That's the biggest reason I came here." The Westbrook native saw action as a freshman. He red-shirted his second year in football, then was the regular quarterback his final three years. He had an outstanding 1987 season as a senior, com- pleting 313 - of- 507 pass- es (61.7 percent) for 4.222 yards and 38 touchdowns.

The touchdown record has since been broken by Jeff Loots (50, 1991), but the others remain as single- season records at Southwest. Elzenga set six national records, winning honors as an honorable mention All-America. "In that offense, we basically had four running plays," said Elzenga. 'hre threw every down. It was a deal where we were com- mitted to throwing the football." The people around me... the linemen, backs, receivers . . . they knew what they had to do. We executed.. I'd say over- all for us to be that suc- cessful, we executed our game plan. I think we did a pretty good job of that." James Ashley led the receiving corps, which included wide-outs Adrian Hebig (Marshall) and Brian Ginn (New Ulm). "As for quickness, I've never seen anybody in person as quick as James," Elgenza said. "Adrian and Brian were definitely possession- type receivers, I wouldn't trade them for anything. There wasn't a ball that they wouldn't catch." Walnut Grove native Jim Osland was the tight end, while Burl Keating and Warren Hooks were the running backs for the Mustangs. When Elzenga was a senior, SSU came within six inches of winning its first conference champi- onship in football. The Mustangs tied Bemidji State, 46-46, then beat Minnesota-Duluth, 27-14, to finish the season. '"We were driving in the final minute against Bemidji. We got the ball to the six- inch line. We never got in (the end zone)," Elzenga said. He finished his career completing 518-of-876 passes for 7,045 yards and 64 touchdowns. "Personal records were Bi not a big deal," said Elzenga. "I just wanted, to win. Its been in me since day one ever since I've been in organized sports. I wanted to win. As long as we put up a W, that was the biggest thing. In two of the three years, we had winning years." During his career, the Mustang football team compiled a 20-20-3 record, going 6-4 in 1985 and 7-4-1 in 1987. In basketball, Elzenga started as a freshman and as a senior. He played extensively as a junior with the Mustangs, who were ranked second in the district during his senior year. During the 1987-88 season, he proved to be an outstanding free-throw shooter, hitting 59-of-72 (81.9 percent). That'ranks in the top 10 for best free- throw percentage in a sea- son. He ranks second over- all in career free-throw percentage, making 109-of- 132 attempts for 82.5 per- cent. He played in 80 games. "Pierre was a lot of fun to play for," said Elzenga, who scored 1,073 points in his career at Westbrook High School, leading it to third place in the 1982 state basketball tourna- ment. The Wildcats (25-1) lost to Chisholm in overtime in the semifinals when Elzenga's half-court shot rimmed out at the end of regulation play. "He was a heck of a competitor," said former Westbrook basketball coach Steve Kjorness. "He was a gamer. You could count on that kid. He played with a lot of confi- dence." Saturday, Steve Elzenga returned to Mattke Field for the cere- mony. Colton Tex West Eric and West of Castle annoiznce the son Colton Tex maternal great West, born 2003. He pounds and was long.
