Talented Dorance Armstrong anchors Kansas Jayhawks’ defense

Dorance Armstrong is his name, and terrorizing opposing offenses is his game. With continued improvement, this explosive junior just might become the premier defensive end in the country.

He’s simply the face of Kansas football, a surefire NFL first-round prospect. He’s the preseason Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year who led the league with 20 tackles for a loss last season (No. 5 in FBS) and ranked No. 18 nationally with 10 sacks while being named a consensus All-Conference First-Team selection.

Kansas State should contend for Big 12 Football Championship + optimism high for better Days at Kansas and Missouri

One has high aspirations, another is hoping to continue recent moderate progress and the third is hoping to make a quick turnaround from recent failures. That’s the story line for the area’s Division I football programs.

Kansas State’s football program is dreaming of a landmark season, with the goal of bringing home the league crown. The Kansas football program has only won two games the last two seasons, and 14 over the last seven campaigns, but there’s optimism in Lawrence that hasn’t been there in several years. Missouri’s football program is hoping a 4-8 season in 2016, in coach Barry Odom’s first season, is an aberration, not the start of a trend.
