Season Review

For the first time in three years, Gustavus finished in the upper division of the MIAC. With an overall record of 5-5 and a MIAC record of 5-4, the Gusties finished fifth. The men also enjoyed their sixth win at the Metrodome Classic giving them a 6-1 record since the Classic began in 1988.

Senior Brian Brekke, this year’s most valuable player, helped the team along being the first Gustie to surpass 2,000 all purpose yards in a season. He also led the MIAC in rushing with 1054 yards. Another boost to the team was the offensive line led by senior Mark Lynch. The line rushed for 1000 yards for the second year in a row, only the fourth time in school history.

Gustavus men honored this season included senior Joe Gaugler, a starting defensive back, who was named to the GTE Academic All District Team. Running back Brian Brekke, offensive tackle Mark Lynch, junior wide receiver Tim Belmore and junior defensive tackle Bryan Pavlish were named to the MIAC All-Conference team for 1994.
