CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa – Simpson wide receiver and kick returner, Brad Vogel, earned Iowa Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Football Offensive Performer of the Week honors for the week ending Sunday, Sept. 22.
A senior from Donnellson, Iowa, Vogel caught eight passes for 115 yards and a touchdown in the Storm's 35-34 win over UW-River Falls on Saturday, Sept. 21. His touchdown catch was a 76-yarder that gave Simpson a 29-28 lead in the fourth quarter.
