In two years with the Jacks, Madourie totaled 74 tackles, 15.5 TFL's, 25.5 Sacks, 3 blocked kicks, and 1 interception for DCB.

The 6-6, 330 lb OT from Lexington, Nebraska made all-region this past year and was part of a DCB offensive line that led the Minnesota College Athletic Conference in rushing offense by well over 100 yards per game than the next best team.
Both of DCB's top RB's signed at NCAA D2 programs. Elijah Todd (Springfield, Ohio) signed at The University of Minnesota-Crookston after finishing in the top 5 individual rushers in the NJCAA in 2017. DeRante Sanders (Lexington, KY) picked up over 700 yards himself last fall at signed at Bemidji State University in Minnesota

All Conference DB Karl King (St. Charles, MO) is headed across the border as he signed at The University of Regina in Regina, Saskatchewan. The Rams are members of the CIS, the Canadian equivalent of the NCAA, and play at a high D2/FCS level. The Rams are one of the top programs in the Canada West Conference.
All Conference DE Tyler Gay (Houston, TX) signed at NAIA member Mayville State University in Mayville, North Dakota. Gay totaled 61 tackles, 16 sacks, and 12 TFL's in his 2 years with the Jacks.
Wide Receiver/Tight End Kevonta Moses (Fort Myers, FL) signed at NCAA D2 member Shaw University in North Carolina. Moses played only 1 season at DCB, but had an immediate impact as the leading receiver on the team and was named all-conference as well.
All-Conference OL Spencer Dorsey (Tecumseh, NE) rounds out the group, signing at NAIA member Valley City State University in North Dakota. Dorsey was an all-conference performer for the Jacks as well as a NJCAA Academic performer.
"These players are already placed and we have another group of sophomores that are working on academics to qualify for transfer," Davis said. "The sophomores were part of a special year for DCB, helping our program to their first championship in team history. They will be missed."
In addition, 2 members of previous DCB teams signed elsewhere this past year. DB Stryker O'Boyle (Midland, MI, 2016 team member) signed at NCAA D2 Saginaw Valley State University in Michigan, and former all-region DL Paulo Ta'a (Seattle, WA, 2014-15 team member) is resuming his career as a Graduate transfer working on his Master's degree at NAIA Tabor College in Kansas after finishing up his Bachelor's degree this spring.
We wish the best of success to all these DCB alums.
