SDSU Jackrabbits QB Mark Gronowski named Missouri Valley Football Conference Offensive Player of the Week

South Dakota State quarterback Mark Gronowski was honored Sunday as Missouri Valley Football Conference Offensive Player of the Week, one day after leading the Jackrabbits to a conference-opening victory at Missouri State in what also was a battle between teams ranked in the top five of the Football Championship Subdivision.

Gronowski set single-game career highs in completions, yards and passing touchdowns in No. 2/3 South Dakota State’s 28-14 road win over the No. 4/6 Bears. He completed 22-of-29 passes for 319 yards and accounted for all four Jackrabbit touchdowns through the air. Gronowski book-ended touchdowns of 3 and 40 yards to Jadon Janke, while also connecting on scoring strikes of 13 yards to Jaxon Janke and the go-ahead 21-yarder to Zach Heins early in the fourth quarter. 

A sophomore from Naperville, Illinois, Gronowski directed scoring drives of 70 and 84 yards in the fourth quarter that took a combined 8 minutes and 35 seconds off the clock.

The Jackrabbits, 3-1 overall, return home to host Western Illinois on Saturday. Kickoff for the Hall of Fame Game and Precision Ag Bowl is set for 2 p.m. at Dana J. Dykhouse Stadium.
